    Will North Korea's hostilities actually unite Russia, China, and America together in a alliance?

    A question was asked "Do you want nuclear war with North Korea and China?" by promisem.  Of course no one wants Nuclear war, but what are we going to do about a tiny nation that exists in a fog of war whose leader is deranged enough to actually start a Nuclear war?  North Korea has existed in a perpetual war state, with America, for more than 50 years.  It is very possible Kim Jong Un  prefers war over loss of power or control of his country.  Will NK's hostile acts unite China, Russia and America together to remove the threat to world peace?

    The problem I see is twofold, first we have a 'boy who cried wolf scenario':
    America's problem, it invaded Iraq on false pretenses, Libya on false pretenses, Syria via the CIA through false pretenses, etc.  people are tired with war, tired of America toppling nations...
    Secondly, in the case of North Korea, unlike with Iraq or Libya or Syria we are faced with a real threat, with real nuclear weapons, a real militant culture looking for a war, but we have cried wolf one time too many.
    North Korea has existed in a state of war with America since 1950, for North Korea's entire society, the war has NEVER ended.  I don't think there is any way I could get any reader on here to grasp that.  Every single North Korean has grown up in a society geared towards war with America, all the woes and suffering that occurs in North Korea is laid at the feet of America.
    Since Kim Jong Un came into power, he has murdered all those around him that he felt were a threat to oppose him, and those that had strong ties to China.  It makes it difficult to know just how dangerous the situation truly is, because it hangs on the sanity/decisions of one man, who has no checks to his authority.   
    Current North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho described NK’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, as an “unshakable strategic line of the state”.  Making clear that NK saw that while nuclear-weapon states have never come under military attack by America several without atomic capability, such as Iraq and Libya, have been overthrown, their countries destroyed, by the “interference of the U.S.”
    Can’t really disagree with that, as its entirely true.
    Its not a stretch of the imagination to figure that Kim Jong Un sees nuclear weapons as a way to avoid being overthrown and gain the type of recognition for NK enjoyed by India and Pakistan.
    And with South Korea and the U.S. seemingly in turmoil over new leadership, I am sure he feels its the right time to push his agendas.  And why not, his predecessors have always been able to get what they wanted from past Administrations, especially Clinton, that caved in to every demand, and all but handed over nuclear weapons to Kim’s father.
    It’s a game of chicken that we are playing at severe disadvantage, we have allies, and thousands of troops, within easy striking distance of North Korea and we don’t truly know how stable, or unstable, Kim Jong Un really is.

    I don't think that can happen. China under no condition would want to lose influence in that region, at least not until KJU becomes a threat to Chinese interests. What are the odds for that anyway?  Besides the sabre-rattling keeps Americans busy (strategising or selling arms or signing new defence pacts with ROK or Japan) while China on the other hand calmly executes its Global Expansion policy.

    Of course, they have to abide by sanctions, as off now but that in no way, means they would like to choke DPRK. In fact, Russia and China have come much closer as allies and they already gunning against American regime. The Petrodollars is the first thing they are going after!!

      I think you have a pretty good insight into the situation, especially with regards to how America (its actions) have been pushing Russia and China together, and have them uniting together to offer the world an alternative to America.

      Glad you agree with my views.
      I guess change is inevitable but how soon, that remains to seen.
