Do America like the idea of two Koreas uniting? Or do they oppose it? (Page 2)
Secret_Asian: Briansmythe. But I put America in to this question, because America does its good job intervening other countries and making their bases all around the world. They are what people call it "The World Police".
freedomfirst1797: Briansmythe..... you make a really good point.
Geographic proximity has a lot to do with it. Sure, the USA would prefer that Korea be united as a free nation and military ally, but China has a vested interest in preventing any such unification. China regards Korea just like we regard Canada and Mexico. They will do whatever it takes to keep in in their sphere of influence.
And we understand this. This is precisely the same reason we abandoned Taiwan when we stopped recognizing them as the "real China" and had them replaced by Mainland China at the UN. This is also why the Soviet Union withdrew their ballistic missiles from Cuba.
Sometimes it is more prudent to recognize political reality than to start a global war over principles. Neither China nor the USA wants war, or wants to disrupt their economic ties to each other.
Secret_Asian..... you started this thread with a very specific question that has been answered. Yet you persist in advancing some bizarre conspiracy theory about the USA. And you make odd statements without any proof.
I say it is time to give it a rest and move on to something else.
The giant midget: Freedom you nailed it spot on with your last posting
Oh almost forgot Asian will keep this up like a never ending story
briansmythe: Yeah well fredom you made a good point it should be up to the Koran people wether they want to Unify or not . Not imposed on them from other Countries. Pitty the world doesn't work like that
Midjet stop watching K Pop
freedomfirst1797: What do you suppose would happen if the Korean people, both North and South, held a plebiscite and peacefully and democratically voted for reunification?
My gut feeling is that China would oppose it, and hopefully... the USA would not step in and start making demands of China. But you never know. Anything could happen, and the whole process would be full of risk. I seriously doubt that Russia wanted East and West Germany to reunify and become an adversary state. But at the time they were too weak to do anything about it. The same condition doesn't apply to China today.
Like you, I think the Korean people should decide their own fate, but China might not want a free nation on their border. And the USA would have few options other than stay out of it, or jump in with both feet.
SissyQween: The US would want a United Korea if the govt was friendly to the US. China would want Unification too, if the govt were friendly to China.. Pretty simple.
freedomfirst1797: Exactly right.
But if the election was fair and free.... there is absolutely no doubt that around 99% of Koreans would prefer a South Korean style nation rather than a North Korean one.
briansmythe: No they wont . Nth Korea kinda reminds me of Iran . Theere heaps paranoid about western interfeace . And the only way they can counter that in there eyes is nuclear bombs
briansmythe: Thing that makes me laugh .Is why do they think our leaders .Are any better. Cos there mot called dictators . Oh wait thats righr Trump kust theatend. To bolw up Iran with nuclear bombs . Nothing like fredom might is right
briansmythe: Yeah I know what your saying I see what asains saying too . Another thing that makes me laugh is a when there going on with fredom and library and free speach .There the the first ones to spin around call people racist or your disrecting gay people. What ever it may be
Bunch of power hungry Tyrants
srbiddy09: I know that I am kinda late to this discussion, but I sure hope that America does in Korea what it did in Vietnam. Those people needed our help and we stepped in and kept them safe from Communism. I hate to think what Vietnam would look like today if we hadn't gotten involved.
briansmythe: I thought Russia came to Vietnams help , Thats what they say anyways but what would they know its there Country
briansmythe: So what do we do Drop Nuclear bombs on Half the world Cos the USA Isnt Communist Wipe Communism out for good , Cant see how thats rescuing any body
briansmythe: Well Im The First Generation of my Family that Hasent been in some war since WW1 and that was only cos I was too young to miss the Draft fro Vietnam , Other wise my fate would of been decided for me , So who knows it all seems rather pointless to me
briansmythe: Yeah for shore Ironry is were becoming what they all were fighting for to uphold this supposed freedom , With the government not trusting its own Citezens , , And wanting control of every thing, Donno seems crazy
