…in a New Korean War.

"The situation between the US and North Korea remains tenuous and characterized by uncertainty. North Korea's cancellation of the upcoming summit with South Korea over the recent US/South Korean joint military exercises underscores the fragile nature of the proposed talks between the two countries. While the United States Department of State continues to prepare for the June 12 meeting between the US and North Korea, President Trump, speaking to reporters on Tuesday in the Oval Office said the summit "may not work out". As recently as March 2018, Vice President Pence stated that "all options on the table". Among those options are of course the US Military, including Special Operations Forces, who would no doubt play a critical role in any US Military involvement on the Korean Peninsula.

Last June The Cipher Brief spoke with Retired Special Forces Colonel David Maxwell, who shared his perspective on how US and South Korean Special Operations Forces would potentially partner in support of combined efforts in the region, a combination that he says would provide a "powerful capability"…."

We all know that Xi Who Must Be Obeyed already made it very clear that he WILL NOT tolerate a regime change in North Korea.

That means that a new player, Communist China, needs to be included in every single one of those "game" scenarios. Whatever gains made against North Korea will end up being just temporary WHEN (not IF) they get involved, and will have wasted the lives of many good soldiers that we will desperately need later on.

So, any scenario that does not include Communist China is delusional at best and deliberately deceiving at worst.

If you manage a decapitation strike (or a "terrible automobile accident" if Fatty is visiting another nation), China's action is moot.

If it results in a regime change, Communist China will step in.
