Russia, China will carve up N. Korea
North Korea is in mortal danger.
Sure, the United States is getting ready for the kill. But Russia and China are circling like vultures. While the U.S. ponders the situation, look for Russia, then China, to swoop in soon and begin dividing up the place. That fits with understanding why Russia and China have left the regime in place.
In the end, the United States and Japan will be thanking them for occupying North Korea.
The immediate danger is that North Korea will strike out at us and our allies when their northern neighbors invade. Long-term, having Russia and China in charge of North Korea will be worse than the current situation.
