http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/03/07/thaad-deployment-threat-stokes-us-tensions-with-beijing-moscow.html China having a fit over missile defense system going in South Korea. If China would've acted a little more aggressive earlier against N.Koreas missle program THAAD possibly wouldn't be necessary.

It wouldn't be going there if the Chinese had done something about their little buddy.

China has a love-hate relationship with NoKo. If you'll pardon the odd analogy, they're China's illegal immigration problem. NoKo people flee to China, hoping for less oppression and more food. OTOH, the Korean language and alphabet are very different from Mandarin and the Chinese ideographic character set. So there is a very large language and literacy gap, more so than between American English and the Spanish of Central Americans who are a large part of the illegal immigrant population here in the US.

They don't bring Nork fast food though, nobody wants bark on a stick.

Kimchi is rather tasty, though. China does allow some immigration of Koreans, though whether from the North or South, I'm not sure. My daughter has met some in Xining, and there are several Korean restaurants in Xining (north central China).

You are right about language issues. The English/Spanish differences are easier to deal with because both are Latin-based. Also, because Spanish has infiltrated America culture-music, Sesame Street, and in entertainment. Most of us know some Spanish. Most Latinos speak some English for similar reasons.

This is a ChiCom problem and they need to
Double Tap Kim if he doesn't knock this shit
off.

Or if they won't take him out just look the
other way when we do. A small barrage
of cruise missiles and Kimy is Chi. :smile-new:

Probably why Kim had his older brother killed to make a regime change harder. Nobody wants to be responsible for rebuilding that pile of carp
