China moves troops into North Korea

South Korea's daily newspaper is reporting that what Western analysts have feared has happened: Chinese troops have been deployed into North Korea. The Chinese now have a presence in the rogue state for the first time in more than 15 years. China has had no military presence in the rogue country since 1994 after it quit the Military Armistice Commission that supervises the Armistice that suspended the Korean war. Since that time, Pyonyang has stridently announced that it will no longer abide by the agreement. During 2010 the North Korean government officially declared that it is once again in a state of war with South Korea and the U.S.

 Well, look at it from China's perspective. They know that the U.S. would love to have a military presence on China's border so that we can threaten them more directly over their financial independence that we don't want them to have. The best location from which to do that is North Korea;...with the added bonus of using the ass-kicking of NK to scare other countries into compliance and whip up patriotic fervor and loyalty at home.

China is not going to allow that for one second, even if it means going to the mattresses to defend their spoiled little child monster creation that they are constantly embarrassed by.
