    Hence why so many think if Nk launched an attack you would see China roll across the border to put in a puppet government. America and China won't come to conflict over this. Unless people in either capital completely lose their minds
    Running scenarios in one's head, it does seem plausible that China would intervene somehow. It just seems fantastical to imagine that China would tolerate some kind of all-out war going on in Korea without acting. Also, as they have had a long running (albeit declining and, for China, troublesome) alliance with North Korea and been supportive of their regime at different times, it seems plausible that they would seek to offer shelter to Kim and his family, if only as a matter of state policy to reassure allies or potential allies that they can be trusted. This might itself be a flashpoint if the US or SK launched attacks on Kim's palace / bunker, etc. There are some tempting targets for the cruise missiles.

    The USA won't do anything until North Korea makes the first move as the US are friends with South Korea and the North and South are very close to the border so the US wouldn't want to risk hitting South Korea. Also if the USA did make the first move, it would set a huge war in motion. China might back up with North Korea as communists stick together but only if the war didn't involve the USA because they would then have a chance of winning. However if the USA is involved (this is most likely), China wouldn't be stupid enough to start a war with the USA because they know the USA would win and also there would be nothing left of their economy because the USA and everyone against North Korea wouldn't buy China's mass produced rubbish anymore. However North Korea as usual are just making threats like they have been for the last 60 odd years, they are still letting people into North Korea which they wouldn't be if they are going to war.

    On another note, this is a good website with North Korean rebel journalists if you don't know much about what is happening in North Korea: http://www.asiapress.org/rimjingang/english/

    For those comrades whose Korean is a bit rusty here is a charming quotation from North Korea's Govt:

    "The prevailing grim situation more clearly proves that the Supreme Command of the KPA was just when it made the judgment and decision to decisively settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppets by dint of the arms of Songun, because time when words could work has passed...

    They (the US and their puppets) should clearly know that in the era of Marshal Kim Jong Un, the greatest-ever commander, all things are different from what they used to be in the past.

    The hostile forces will clearly realize the iron will, matchless grit and extraordinary
    mettle of the brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu to the effect that the earth cannot exist without Songun Korea."

    Nothing will actually will happen because NK knows that Britain has Trident and that will obviously deter them.

    The fact that no internet services are allowed in NK is a bit of a *****. What about mobiles though, or has Kim Jong Il banned them as well. So even if any conflict went on we would not get any facts, just propaganda.

    Britain? I think NK cares more about the United States than Britain. But then again I suppose you already know that, given your obvious sarcasm in this post.

    That's got nothing to do with anything. The deepest mine is about 3.9km - this earthquake depth was 561.9km. It's also really far from China and North Korea. Earthquakes occur all the time - on that same day, there was a similar earthquake in Siberia.

    As I said earlier, RT was just being quite sensationalist by mentioning North Korea - when it was just an earthquake which was a bit near China and NK.

    That's a bit sodding rich coming from you when you posted the exact same bit of news last night in the exact same way!!

    Get off your high horse, you're just as sensationalist and it was me who told you to pack it in and stop being silly by mentioning the mine depths you now happily reel off as if it was your own information. Don't dare have a go at someone else for doing the exact same moronic thing you did.

    The worst that would happen is:
    1. North Korea fire powerful missile in the hope of destroying as much as possible
    2. The Missile travels vertically
    3. The missile turns and travels downwards, about 40 feet from where it was fired
    4. North Korea is destroyed
    5. Everyone else moves on with their lives

    Calm down, chap. You should be pleased - the characteristic of an intelligent human is to learn from one's mistakes. Clearly I've done so, hence why I'm now passing on the correct message regarding my previously erroneous statements regarding the earthquake and related "sensationalism".

    Again, calm down.
