China Would Enter War In The Event North Korea Is Attacked.….

As the rhetoric gets ratch­eted up on a pos­si­ble war with North Korea it is impor­tant that the mis­takes of the past inform the deci­sions of the future.
According to (met​alfloss​.com) In 1950, the Bomb was only five years old, It was just assumed that atom­ic weapons would be part of any future con­flict — like the Korean War, for exam­ple.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff ordered the employ­ment of the atom­ic bomb against China if it sent troops or bombers into Korea. China ignored the threat. Likewise, there were plans to drop the Bomb on the Soviet Union if it got involved, but European lead­ers object­ed to such an esca­la­tion, fear­ing the Soviets would use it as a jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for the con­quest of Europe. Accordingly, the United States promised to use atom­ic weapons in Korea only to pre­vent a “major mil­i­tary dis­as­ter.”

It is impor­tant nev­er to for­get that the United States is the only coun­try in the his­to­ry of the tech­nol­o­gy, ever to use a nuclear/​atomic device against an ene­my.
The Korean War nev­er offi­cial­ly end­ed an (armistice), cease fire, was agreed upon.

North Korea invad­ed the south in 1950 in what it called the “Fatherland Liberation War”, a clear indi­ca­tion that at the cen­ter of the North’s con­tention is a desire to reuni­fy Korea under the ruler­ship of the North. It is not out of the realm of com­mon sense to assume that the removal of American ser­vice­men from the Peninsula would advance that agen­da.
In China, the war was offi­cial­ly called the “War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea”.
Both China and the then Soviet Union fought along­side the Nork Koreans result­ing in a stale­mate at the line of demar­ca­tion known as the 38th par­al­lel.

In the almost sev­en decades since the Korean War America Presidents have lived with a bel­li­cose North Korea.
This begs the ques­tion, “what has changed in the six months since Barack Obama demit­ted office”?

This hyped up rhetoric is serv­ing some­one’s inter­est and may have pre­cious lit­tle to do with any weapon in the arse­nal of the North Koreans.
Before the United States gets involved in anoth­er war that could eas­i­ly and quite rapid­ly esca­late into a third world war it may serve some peo­ple well to stick their stu­pid head into a paper bag and take a few deep breaths.

Bellicose rhetoric based on brava­do and machis­mo serves no use­ful pur­pose par­tic­u­lar­ly when there is such igno­rance sur­round­ing the his­to­ry of this region by those ratch­et­ing up the war of words.

Today we learned that if North Korea launched an unpro­voked attack on the south or any­one they will remain neu­tral but if the Americans attack North Korea they will enter the war in defense of the North.
This should give every liv­ing human being on this plan­et pause. China is a nuclear pow­er with a mas­sive mil­i­tary and a 1.3 bil­lion peo­ple.

Russia is right on the bor­der with China, so it’s log­i­cal to think that any con­flict with North Korea would like­ly involve Russia and not on the side of the United States.
This is a sit­u­a­tion which requires lev­el heads, not blovi­at­ing brava­do.
