It would be interesting to know what some of you that are around my age (60) think Red China would do in the event of a major conflict between North and South Korea. The news media seems to write articles both ways. When we were young, Red China was right up there with the Soviet Union as our greatest enemy with nuclear weapons. Not that Red China and the USSR got along that well, but the enemies were well defined. Of course, during the Korean War, we came really close to engaging China in a ground war. In 1972, President Nixon made his famous trip to China which lead to the relationship we have with them today. I still do not trust Red China in any aspect, and if they did help stop North Korea, it would be for their interests alone. However, I do not believe China has any love for the United States whatsoever, and would use any opportunity to knock us down a couple of rungs on the ladder. The reason that it is so important to know what they would do is there is a big difference between dealing with NK alone and NK with China as an ally. Think about a gound war with China. It is not a pretty thought. So what do you think China would do???
