    I think too much is made of the NK offense. Same can be said for Iran. Just a ripple on the pond.... but that's just my little opinion.

    sometimes those ripples dislodge something from the edges that causes the dam to burst too

    Unfortunately it's a game of cat and mouse with deadly consequences.

    What does NK and Iran bring to the table? Probably not much. The big question is what does China do. Since China holds most of our IOUs, would they really want to get into a pissing contest at that level?

    Not being argumentative, just throwing balls into the dirt because no one is at work today.

    China seems to be playing things pretty smart so far.

    I agree. China can take this so many ways. Actual combat... or demand payment on the loans the USA has with them. That would put us on our knees over night.

    Fortunately any slowdown, let alone a cease in trading between the two countries would not be in anyone's best interest. It wouldn't happen.

    The question is how far with China go in backing up the North (with force).

    It depends on what China's best interests/priorities are.

    I just can't see China turning down billions of dollars of debt from the rest of the world to back up NK

    War will happen..just on what scale beyond what is already taking place in the Gulf is the question. NK and many other nations could stand to have a nice economic boost after the war is over much like WWII did with the US which is prob what the US needs... look at all the jobs the Gulf wars have helped create in the states not to mention what would happen if all those soldiers came home to a over 9% unemployment rate.

    Not in China's best interest to call in the debt but they can sure wreak havoc in many ways.

    Did the south fire back? i don't remember reading that.

    i wonder what he means by special "measures".

    One thing is certain, people tend not to raise hell when the American economy is good. Being this close to another collapse, it's no wonder that these rogue countries are stepping it up a notch. We simply don't have the money to fight multiple wars on multiple fronts.
