With hostile expansionist empires next door like the EU and HATO obviously Moskva needs to stay prepared.

Probably every weapon in the USA's military arsenal has at least some components stamped "made in China". Even if the corporations themselves are all North American...

People like American observer and Faith think that throwing dirt at others make them look better but in reality they look like total idiots. I don`t know bout weapons but USA imports a lot of goods from China and it`s trade balance is negative.

Russia will not get involved.

Speaking seriously, that Northern Korea thing ca be a trap for USA. Chineese trap.
Northern Korea has 1 million strong army which can be magnified several times in case of mobilization. That will be too much for US army to manage in short time. So there will be a long and expecive war for USA. It will distract USA from the Middle East, from Syria and Iran and will cause a lot of spending. USA economy which is doing badly now will collapse at all.
So it actually doesn`t matter who will win on the battlefield, USA will lose anyways.

LOL! China? Who do you think is more valuable to the Chinamen, the US or North Korea. China is not going to sign its own death warrant going to war with America on behalf of that to-bit sh*t-hole. No one is even paying attention to Russia...They are irrelevant.

China can easily destroy USA in conventional war.
It can mobilize 15 mln. strong army in a week.

If USA will nuke China, China will nuke USA.
So I don`t see any danger for China.

USA is too weak to defeat China.

Sea blackade of China is impossible without Russia joining in the blockade.
Russia is a key actor in this game.

Scared scared. 6 the U.S. Pacific fleet fast ran away from the Mediterranean sea, when there came one of the Russian squadron to Syria in January 2013. You be honest with yourself.=))

Agree. Army KNDR is real profi. Everybody soldier training in army 10 year. The us army consists of random people. In the war with North Korea, America will be a lot of losses of personnel. Without the allied countries and members of NATO the United States could lose.

We all know that European countries will not send their troops to Korea. Or will limit their participation with sending of several batalions there.

China is capable of mobilizing of 15 mln. soldiers.

US army is 1,4 mln. and is able to mobilize no more than 1,1 mln.
For every US soldier there will be 6 Chineese soldiers or more.

The US would flatten North Korea pretty quick I would imagine.NK troops may well have soldiers that have trained for years but the US army have soldiers that have served on the front line in recent conflicts.They have better technology,better equipment,generals,logistics,e xperience.I hope it doesn't come to war for the sake of all of us because if it goes nuclear,we could all be in the Sh*t
