Rus­sia, China will carve up N. Korea

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - VIEWS & VOICES -

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.
