    April 12 (UPI) -- China has ordered its military to be on nationwide alert, in addition to areas near the North Korea border, as tensions escalate on the peninsula.

    The Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, a nongovernmental organization in Hong Kong, said Beijing has ordered troops at all five military "regions" to maintain preparedness because of the situation in North Korea, according to Oriental Daily News in Hong Kong.

    According to the NGO, China's armored and mechanized infantry brigades in the provinces of Shandong, Zhejiang and Yunnan received the state mandate.

    About 25,000 troops of the Chinese military's 47th group army of the Ninth Armored Brigade have been instructed to be ready to move long distances, close to the North Korea border, the Hong Kong-based organization said.

    Other troops may have been mobilized.

    According to Taiwan's China Post, the Chinese government may have deployed about 150,000 troops along the North Korea border on Sunday, as U.S. and South Korea militaries conducted joint exercises in and around the peninsula.

    The country keeps missiles, including 12 Dongfeng-03 ballistic missiles and 24 Dongfeng-21 "Carrier-killer" missiles at the 51st rocket army station in Shenyang, Liaoning Province.

    China has become increasingly frustrated with North Korea's missile threats.

    Following news of the U.S. deployment of the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson to the peninsula, state tabloid Global Times issued an editorial on Wednesday, saying more Chinese citizens want China to place heavier sanctions on North Korea.

    The Global Times English edition also issued an editorial saying China would "send out troops for sure" if military conflict is sparked on the peninsula.

    Well, the general public opion regarding NK is not very friendly in China to say the least, and the CCP have done nothing to improve the NK imagine in China. The right-wing Chinese simply dont like koreans very much for whatever reasons, and the left wing Chinese believe kim's little dynastry give communism a horrible name.

    I think China would rather watch if the US is aiming at only removing fatie kim but NOT take over north korea, if Trump want to rescue his presidency and repair his imagine, hitting NK will turn out to be one of his cheaper options.

    Most probably China goes into North Korea and takeover or destroy all nuclear weapons and its production facilities before leaving. Hence pretty much permanently removing a nuclear Korean peninsula which we all wanted in the first place.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH ..... why do people think China will do US's dirty work by creating a enemy on their border ?

    Just becasue Trump had 1 meeting with Chinese delegate and it was mostly about pleasentaries, on the same day when Russian Subway was bombed by CIA

    Wonder what Mr Putin thinks about this diversion maneuver , last time US aimed at North Korea they attacked Syria

    Good luck to North Korea on their Nuclear Test and Missile launch soon show Trump what you are capable of

    Probably the best option. U.S. uses its air and sea power to target North Korea's facilities without the need for invasion, and you can bet if there was an invasion, we be talking about 500,000 American troops involved but nothing like that has called up. Just a carrier strike group. On the other hand, China with its land forces close to North Korea is large enough for what they could accomplished which are going after nuclear facilities and weapons. And they don't want American forces in North Korea close to Chinese border.

    China returning North Korea ships considered making an enemy?

    North Korean ships return home with coal after China tightens sanctions
    About a dozen cargo ships on way to North Korean port amid stricter sanctions on Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons programme

    A fleet of North Korean cargo ships is heading home to the port of Nampo, the majority of it fully laden, after China ordered its trading companies to return coal from the isolated country, shipping data shows.

    Following repeated missile tests that drew international criticism, China banned all imports of North Korean coal on February 26, cutting off the country’s most important export product.

    To curb coal traffic between the two countries, China’s customs department issued an official order on April 7 telling trading companies to return their North Korean coal cargoes, said three trading sources with direct knowledge of the order.

    US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed North Korea at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort on April 7.

    North Korea condemns ‘reckless moves’ after US sends strike group to region in show of strength

    Shipping data shows a dozen cargo ships on their way to North Korea’s main west coast port of Nampo, almost all carrying cargoes from China.

    The Chinese authorities did not respond to requests for official comment.

    The Trump administration has been pressuring China to do more to rein in North Korea, which sends the vast majority of its exports to its giant neighbour across the Yellow Sea.

    But US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said last week’s US military strike against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons was a warning to other countries, including North Korea, that “a response is likely” if they pose a danger.

    As a US Navy strike group headed to the region in a show of force, China and South Korea agreed on Monday to slap tougher sanctions on North Korea if it carries out nuclear or long-range missile tests, a senior official in Seoul said.

    To make up for the shortfall from North Korea, China has ramped up imports from the United States in an unexpected boon for US President Donald Trump, who has declared he wants to revive his country’s struggling coal sector.

    No US coking coal was exported to China between late 2014 and 2016, but shipments soared to over 400,000 tonnes by late February.

    This trend was exacerbated after cyclone Debbie knocked out supplies from the world’s top coking coal region in Australia’s state of Queensland, forcing Chinese steel makers to buy even more US cargoes.

    The other big coking coal supplier that has ramped up exports to China since the ban on North Korean cargoes is Russia.

    Here is what will happen

    • North Korea will do a nuclear test
    • Trump will call up a security council meeting
    • Russia will acknowledge North Korea as a Nuclear state and send their support
    • China will just position the troops along the border and play the wait game
    • US destroyers will come back home, as Trump will be advised by his Generals
    • Some minor sanctions will be put on North Korea and Russia will do Business with North Korea

    Won't be suprised if Russia will Veto any attempt to isolate North Korea

    Similarly I would not be suprised if some secret missions goes after Iran nuclear plant using North Korea as a diversion like it was done against Syria Chemical False flag

    Could happen , Israel has the F-35

    [​IMG]

    Having US presence would be a threat against Russian interest that is 100%

    If I was iran I would would be watching over the skies very very deligently any bird that flies over Israel

    just one question why U.S and its favorite countries can have weapons of mas distruction or any thing they want but if any other country try to acquire or made any advance weapon just for their defense it becomes threat to US. why its dual standards US and allies have killed and destroyed many countries and innocents as compare to wars and terrorism

    It's because they don't want anyone else to be the part of this bullying business. If they want to extract a certain resources from a certain countries they can do it without a resistance, and that's the only reason countries that rely heavily on US in terms of safety and security, such as South Korea, Japan and other Nato Nations they have to pay a ridiculous amount out of their budget to the United states just to be their savior. And in return US provides them with latest weapons, machinery, technology and assurance of not to be attacked by any Nation on this planet.

    Why do you think that Mexico that has a GDP of over a 2.2 Trillion USD and it only spends roughly around 11.7 Billion USD on its defenses. Although Military training is mandatory in the Country yet the total strength of the Mexican Military is 280,000, It has an extremely weak and corrupt internal security forces. You can judge their capability by assuming that they can't even get rid of the Drug Cartels permanently who are destroying their youth for decades.

    Now lets take a look at the Brazilian Military forces, they are just over 300 thousand. They have a defense budget of 31 Billion USD. Yes, surprisingly they spend just closely to that of France yet you cannot find a progress in their Military services. Why, well you can take a guess? They are situated extremely close to that of USA. So where does this huge amount goes to? One should be asking this question again and again.

    So, I hope that you have got the point.

    America being enganged on multiple fronts.

    LOL at those rednecks who voted for their man Trump. They must be feeling screwed up. From Syria to NK. Trump is destroying his isolationist promise. Not to even mention what he has done domestically. The right wing Nazis are pulling their hair. Not a single Trump promise being fulfilled. Now even NATO isn't obsolete anymore LMAO Talk about a 360. This Trump fool is one cunning fvck. Trump has truly engineered the biggest heist in US elections with his BS rhetoric. How the white folls lined up and fell for it all. Freakin' mind boggling.

    Write it down folks. America under Trump is going to further increase its massive debt. It is going to do this by engaging in more wars abroad. Trump is not an isolationist as he promised. He is a warmonger. His actions speak for themselves. Trump is going to put Bush and Blair to shame with his war antics. You can mark my words.

    as far as I'm concerned these are all pressure tactics physically attacking north Korea is not a joke the consequences of it will be unpredictable for all concerned.
