The whole world has been watching North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un to see if he will keep his promise to launch a nuclear attack against the United States. Such a reckless action could be the spark that sets off a third world war that could leave millions dead. President Donald Trump has reached out to Chinese President Xi Jinping in hopes that the Chinese leader would use China’s influence over North Korea to help ease the tensions. China is the largest trade partner with North Korea and if China wanted, they could just about shut-down the North Korean economy, but so far that has not happened. President Trump has also talked of meeting with Kim, but to date, it seems all attempts at diplomacy have failed. Recent reports from China indicate that they are building up their defenses along the border with North Korea in case a war does break out.
The Chinese military has reportedly been building up defenses along its border with North Korea that coincide with warnings by President Trump that he is considering military action over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons push.
The Wall Street Journal, citing a review of official military and government websites and interviews with experts, reported that Beijing has built bunkers to protect against nuclear blasts, established a new border brigade and a 24-hour surveillance of the mountainous frontier.
The preparations are intended to respond to worst-case scenarios, like an economic collapse, nuclear contamination or a conflict, the experts told the paper…
It’s possible that China is building up their border defenses to prevent millions of North Koreans from fleeing into China in the case that war does break out. Most certainly, if Kim does attack the US, our retaliation will most certainly leave many casualties, including civilians.
