Military buildup in China near North Korean
border continues as tanks, armored vehicles spotted

Washington Free Beacon, by Bill Gertz

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 4/3/2013 6:44:35 AM

China continued moving tanks and armored vehicles and flying flights near North Korea this week as part of a military buildup in the northeastern part of the country that U.S. officials say is related to the crisis with North Korea.The Obama administration, meanwhile, sought to play down the Chinese military buildup along the border with Beijing’s fraternal communist ally despite the growing danger of conflict following unprecedented threats by Pyongyang to attack the United States and South Korea with nuclear weapons.

If the ´Commander in Chief" ever had to fight a real conflict, I can´t decide whether he´d lead off with wetting himself or blaming the generals. Or maybe he could blame the CIA first and save the generals for blaming later.

FTA: ´One sign that relations had not reached a tipping point toward conflict despite the growing tensions on the peninsula is the fact that the North-South special economic zone at Kaesong remains open with South Korean workers traveling to the zone without disruption.´

It was reported this morning that South Korean workers were blocked at the border and the border has been sealed.

The head line of "Military buildup in China near NK..." is really going to be NK´s people source. Remember during the "First Korean Battle" China supplied men and weapons an arms to NK. Russia supplied the MIGs.
BHO better understand that we will not be up against only NK but Russia and the PRC.
Is the USA talking with China and Russia? Where is Kerry? Will BHO use this as means of getting a 3rd term (re FDR)any rumblings of a Draft in the background noise besides the whack of a golf club???
For all we know it may have been China and Russia who lit NK´s fuse.
Obama, get off the Golf Course and stop the partying. This threat will not go away. This is something your toadies can´t blame on Bush.
Lots of questions. No answers. The enemy is at our door. Obama fiddles while places in the USA may probably burn.

This is what you get when you buy Chinese products. You might reconsider the assumption that Chinese products are cheap. Your taxes will increase to counter China´s increasing truculence, costing you much more in the long run than the piddling amount you save at Wal-Mart.

I think that China is warning the little fat boy ( thanks, Wes Pruden ) to sit down and shut up. The last thing that China wants is for the US to be crippled - between our debt and our trade, we are too valuable to them.

With the bad economy a Korean border war turns into a World War by 2016 no one will vie for the job of president because it will take triplets to fix this nation. It will be too much for one man after this ´wrecking ball´ administration.

I suspect that this is a big show for internal consumption within North Korea. What do you get a man who has everything? Or in this case, what does a man who has everything do to amuse himself? Why, start a war with the United States, that´s what. And it is such a closed society, their baby leader could declare that he had won and destroyed the United States and no one would know the difference or dare to question it.

I also suspect that the Chinese are bolstering their border not in support of the baby leader but against any Nork refugees just in case the baby leader is as bonkers as he sounds and launches an attack against the South. The last thing the Chinese need is a huge illegal alien Nork problem.

China likes it when NK messes with us and makes us look weak and pathetic but...they don´t want a flood of refugees pouring over the border,which would happen if this escalates, and the don´t want the US moving a bunch of military assets into China´s back yard.

I´d be a lot more worried if it were any country other than North Korea. The level of incompetence displayed makes the old Soviet era Russians look good.

I also think the Chinese don´t really want too much to back them anymore. Maybe just enough to hold up appearances of control on their borders.

This is the same mistake Saddam Hussein made: 1960´s Soviet style military, lots of goosestepping military parades, lots of 1970´s Soviet castoff weapons, lots of brave threatening talk, finally fatally believing their own propaganda. All we lack that was present in 1990 is a resolute leader willing to employ our military. A human wave attack now presents a true target rich environment for modern weaponry.

Money — it’s the root of all evil. Behind every great fortune lies a great crime. Or at least an unfair advantage.That’s the gist of the liberals’ creed and justification for their war on wealth. The other half of their view holds that the poor are innocent victims of life’s rigged game.Their narrative of evil winners and noble losers clears the way for self-heroic redeemers. They will deliver social justice by meting out punishment and spreading the wealth around.

WASHINGTON — House Ukraine Caucus Co-Chairwoman Marcy Kaptur said Saturday that while she is concerned about the potential for bloodshed in Ukraine, she understood Russian military action. On Saturday, Russia effectively invaded the ethnically diverse Crimean region of Ukraine. The Russian Parliament also granted Russian President Vladimir Putin the authority to use military action in the country. “If I was President Putin, I would have worried with the collapse of the Party of Regions, about peace in the Crimea … I understand Russia’s military posture. The United States has never been invaded the way Russia has,” Kaptur said in an interview

When John Judis, a longtime senior editor at The New Republic, published a book examining the role of the pro-Zionist lobby in persuading President Harry S. Truman to support the founding of the Jewish state in 1948, he expected strong criticism, and he has certainly gotten it.Since the book, “Genesis: Truman, American Jews and the Origins of the Arab/Israeli Conflict” appeared in February, it has drawn sometimes sharply negative assessments in The Wall Street Journal, Commentary, The National Interest and elsewhere. An invitation to speak at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York was rescinded, then reinstated. But perhaps

President Obama then delivered a message from the White House briefing room, saying he was "deeply concerned" by the reports and that "there will be costs" for any military intervention in Ukraine, though he declined to specify what those costs might

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline.
