It's a very crude statement to make.

What's funnier is when Americans say incredibly racist things to the Chinese such as calling them cruel and barbaric and then expect the Chinese to listen to them and accede to their demands.

For whom to solve? Why US keeps thinking itself as the God for the rest of the world? It did assemble an army back in the 1950s, but was defeated by China then. A similar war today will end more disastrously for US

Even with a very technology disadvantaged army, China dared to fight and defeat the western powers in the 50s. Today, with a modernized and the biggest army in the world, China would sit aside and let US troops march aross its border?

They might not like it and might object but at the end of the day, if the UN or Western powers decide to remove the N. Korean dictatorship they will not intervene.

a question I asked several time yet nobody answers is: if NK should be removed, how come the US is in no hurry to remove the Saudi dictatorship, but instead consistently provides weapons to support its tyranny?

Should we ask this question, does the US hates NK because it is a dictatorship, or is it because of something else? Apparently the US doesn't mind dictators as long as they become Waashington's b*tch.

I don't think it is US obligation to remove any dictatorship. They fight a war to serve their interest. There is nothing wrong about it.

The fact that NK is developing nukes is quite worrisome to the region. China does not want that to happen also. So all the parties try to find solutions to avoid a nuke arms race in the region.

Other than that, NK serves China's interest as being a buffer zone from a US backed SK

I am unaware of SA starving its people and keeping them cut off from the outside world.
