China warns USA: “Try to overthrow North Korean regime” and China will retaliate

According to a statement in the Chinese state-run newspaper Global Times, Beijing is cautioning that should the US and South Korea launch a preemptive strike to “overthrow the North Korean regime,” China would intervene militarily, on North Korea’s behalf.

China’s position on North Korea cannot be any clearer, removing the option that many US generals floated around…that of a preemptive attack on the DPNK in order to force a change in North Korea’s leadership.

Reuters cites the Global Times as saying…

“If the U.S. and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.” 

As The Duran has reported, it is becoming clearer everyday that the only way forward in dealing with North Korea is through dialogue and diplomacy.

As Pyongyang and Washington traded threats, Russia and China weighed in.

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that risks of a military conflict over North Korea’s nuclear program are very high and Moscow is deeply worried by the threats from Washington and Pyongyang.

Lavrov encouraged Pyongyang and Washington to sign up to a joint Russian-Chinese plan, under which North Korea would freeze its missile tests and the United States and South Korea would impose a moratorium on large-scale military exercises.

“The side that is stronger and cleverer” should take the first step to defuse the crisis, said Lavrov, speaking live on state television at a forum for Russian students.

Earlier in Beijing, a Chinese state-run newspaper said on Friday that China should remain neutral if North Korea launches an attack that threatens the United States, sounding a warning for Pyongyang over its plans to fire missiles near the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

“This situation is beginning to develop into this generation’s Cuban Missile crisis moment,” ING’s chief Asia economist, Robert Carnell, said in a research note. “While the U.S. president insists on ramping up the war of words, there is a decreasing chance of any diplomatic solution.”

China, North Korea’s most important ally and trading partner, has reiterated calls for calm. Beijing has expressed frustration with both Pyongyang’s repeated nuclear and missile tests and with behavior from South Korea and the United States, such as military drills, that it sees as increasing tensions.

“China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten U.S. soil first and the U.S. retaliates, China will stay neutral,” the Global Times, which is widely read but does not represent government policy, said in an editorial.

“If the U.S. and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so,” it said.

China’s Foreign Ministry repeated a call for all parties to speak and act cautiously and do more to ease the situation, rather than going down the “old path” of exchanges of shows of force and continually rising tension.

North Korea’s state-run KCNA news agency said on Thursday its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam.

Trump said Kim was not going to get away with his “horrific” comments and disrespecting America.

“Let’s see what he does with Guam. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody’s seen before, what will happen in North Korea,” Trump told reporters on Thursday in New Jersey, without offering specifics.

The United States and South Korea remain technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

Many people on this globe have more money then I will ever have. I haven’t called Mr. Dumb for a twit due to his income or lack of it. I called him an idiot for trying to do a job for which he is neither qualified nor has ability to understand what that job entails.

You dear should ask yourself what are your definitions of words idiot, rich, lifestyle, better and so on. Because dear, words that are different for most of the time describe different things.

Keith. This A-dan is a Zionist Troll, with main function to divide and conquer. He will tell you that he is not in the USA, but Sweden, land of genderless kindergartens…lol.

He becomes severely emotional and speechless when properly and rationally confronted,where as then he proceeds to proclaim that he is blocking you….

BTW he has an obnoxious sidekick or alter ego “Anja” who should be coming to the rescue in three, two, one…..:)

“The side that is stronger and cleverer should take the first step to defuse the crisis”, said Lavrov, channeling King Solomon…..
But Kim and Trump just stared at each other in silence, both confused as to who was meant to speak first. 😉

Do Trump & Co. know China and North Korea have a mutual defense treaty?http://www.greanvillepost.com/2017/04/27/china_nokoreadefensetreaty/
“Thus, on July 11th, 1961, China’s Premier Zhou Enlai and North Korea’s Kim Il Sung signed their “Treaty of Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance Between the People’s Republic of China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea”. https://www.marxists.org/subject/china/documents/china_dprk.htm
It renews automatically every twenty years, unless cancelled by either party. Thus, it renewed in 1981
and is in full effect until 2021…”

There is no war that the U.S. could win given that we have driven the Russians toward the Chinese.

Being about 20 IQ points above the EU and 30 above the USA – Russian and China are natural allies. The only place the US has ‘driven’ anyone is off a cliff… itself.

The Assholes who misrule the US racing North Korea to the bottom of a Mafia-like cock-blocking contest. Sun Tzu had no words for anything quite this stupid. Quarantine the USA!

First formally end the Korean war. (2) End the threatening military drills in South Korea. (3)Negotiate a non aggression pact with North Korea. (4) Bring North Korea into the International Community and lift all sanctions.(5) Stop all the looses take about regeime change in North Korea. After that is done begin in earnist the dialogue with the aim of eliminating nuclear weapons from the face of the earth.

Note: The MIC would not permit the US Government to pursue such a course.

Let us hope cooler heads prevail. Perhaps the US should think more than once before tangling with China…or Russia.
