  1. China mobilizing troops, jets near Korea

    April 1, 2013 2:30 pm

    China has placed military forces on heightened alert in the northeastern part of the country as tensions mount on the Korean peninsula following recent threats by Pyongyang to attack, U.S. officials said.

    Reports from the region reveal the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) recently increased its military posture in response to the heightened tensions, specifically North Korea’s declaration of a “state of war” and threats to conduct missile attacks against the United States and South Korea.

    China’s navy also conducted live-firing naval drills by warships in the Yellow Sea that were set to end Monday near the Korean peninsula.

    The Chinese military activities near North Korea were detected in Jilin Province, and intelligence reports from the area on March 19 indicated that<B> PLA forces were ordered to go to “Level One” alert status, the highest level of readiness.</B>

    Large groups of soldiers were seen on the streets in Ji’an, a city in Jilin, amid reports that the PLA had been ordered to combat readiness status.

    PLA heavy armored vehicles, including tanks and armored personnel carriers, were reported moving near the Yalu River that separates China from North Korea.

    The troops were part of the 190th Mechanized Infantry Brigade, stationed in Benxi, in Liaoning Province. The movements are believed to be related to increased tensions in Korea. The 190th is part of the Shenyang Military Region. The International Institute for Strategic Studies listed the formation in 2006 with an estimated 250,000 personnel, three group armies, and two armoured, one mechanised, four motorised, and one artillery division.

    Low-flying PLA air force jets, believed to be fighters, also were heard and seen at several border locations in China, including Yanji and Yanbian in Jilin, Kuancheng, in Hebei province, and Dandong, in Liaoning province.
  2. This is a fight China can't afford to follow through on. Any serious conflict with America and we can default on our debt with them and stop buying their crap, their economy would collapse and they would have trouble feeding their people let alone fighting a war.

    I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

    China might decide to invade N.K. if they think they are about to launch an attack on the south. If that is their plan, it is a good thing.

    But, if they are there to back up N.K. in the event of a war with the south. Then this will spell big trouble for the world once again.

    I doubt Obama and Hagel have a clue what is going on there.

    That goes without saying doesn't it.

    You're right. Remember that Obama doesn't go to his security briefings. The messiah thinks he already knows everything.

    How can he find the time? After all, he told Israel's Prime Minister he didn't have time for him as he was going to be hanging out with former drug dealer jayzee and beyoncee. That's no shit! He really was hanging out with these two as Israel stood shaking in their boots over Iran. Hollywood couldn't even make this kind of stuff up!:eek:

    Maybe they should have locked him up with some terrorists while he was in Israel a couple weeks ago. Possibly then he wouldn't deny that Muslim Terrorists exist ---- if they let him live.

    The Chinese are readying troops near the N. Korea border, so I don't follow why you think it would necessarily be a fight between China and the US...
  10. If they are doing that in support N Korea ? Hopefully this will blow over and we'll never know their motives.
