North Korea

North Korea has issued a new propaganda film. Probably meant only for internal comsumption but a copy was posted today I viewed. They seem to have some fixation with Americans eating melted snow. Plus living outdoors in tents. The primary reason also appears to be their poorly constructed houses blow down.

Now that China has no interest in supporting them I have to wonder how insane they could act out. Their population has to know how much better south Korea has done over time. Or maybe they are totally denied any outside information.

To me it is just amazing what some people will do to maintain power. Their whole country but the elite it looks like are not doing well. A lot of countries like theirs have eventually thown in the towel.

I suspect they would do something really crazy before doing so themselves. They have to know that threats will not change anything in a positive way. But if they are successful in using propaganda perhaps the current population will tollerate them longer. If they can manage to make their population paranoid especially.

They want south Korea and are not prepared to wait much longer. It would not suprise me if the chinese did some form of intervention in a physical manner in the north just to stabilze them.

Nuclear threats are pointless as they know the consequences of using even one. The danger is if the leadership does not really care about the consequenses. I suspect the chinese have informed them of just how far they can go before having to deal with them or shortly will.

My thought about China is that they would not allow anyone to invade Korea and would not intervene on the rest of the Worlds behalf because they would use Korea as a bargaining Chip to get control of Taiwan.
Meaning they would only interven if it was good for them.

Would China the intervene an invade Korea themselves? If it accomplished something good for them.

The Question is what would China do after thein Invaded Korea? Make it Part of China, use it to bargin for Tiawan or?????

Korea and Cuba are both supposed to be Communist but they left the leatdership to Family. It is more like they are Kings then Communist.
