I don't think Cuba or North Korea understand the value they would have by opening up to foreign investments. Look what has happened to China.

They went from nothing to a world economic power.

I have designs working in China right now. The company I worked for (retired) opened up a manufacturing plant and they used designs from our plants all over the world. As long as it's not military stuff, companies freely give the latest designs to their own companies.

As time marches on and engineers change companies, those designs creep out.

China was brought out of 3rd world to a super power at lightning speed.

Yes of course...so what do you think N Korea means to China?
You don't think NK is something China wants to keep to itself??

The Chinese are not dumb and NK is an ally to them. NK has twice the number of total soldiers as China. This includes active, reserves, and paramilitary (almost 10 million).

Nk is considered a joke in most circles, but they can serve a purpose for China and China will not abandon them unless NK attacks them (fat chance). NK has China's back door covered.

If NK attacks SK or us, our response will have to be measured to avoid fully drawing in China...we DO NOT want to fight with China.

Kim Jong-un is a nut and everybody agrees, but wasn't Hilter a nut? Being a nut actually makes him more dangerous.

Bottom line...China and NK are joined at the hip.

Can you trust ANYONE as far as you can toss them?

NK? WHAT do they have that's of any consequence to anyone, except land speculators?

It is reported today that China is now moving troops to the NK border.Doubt that the move is to attack NK.Could we be in for a re-run of the last war that never ended perhaps?A very dangerous game indeed.If a war starts it will take boots on the ground to finish it,a scary thought.Nuke NK with SK border only 30 miles away,doubt it some how.Troops will be needed and lots of themTeam- unbiased opinion.K.I.S.S principle upheld here

Every year at this time in South Korea United States soldiers and the ROK soldiers go through a training exercise
Called an "exeval"
When I was there back in the 90's the north did the similar threats as they are now. Nothing new
Perhaps the ''threats'' are louder than usual this year due to President Obama's ''pivot'' towards Asia, including construction of the new US naval base in South Korea.

I reckon it's more likely to show that China might invade to calm things down if they do get out of hand, like they did in the Korean War. However, the US is now backing down.
WASHINGTON—After a high-visibility display of military power aimed at deterring North Korean provocations, the White House is dialing back the aggressive posture amid fears that it could inadvertently trigger an even deeper crisis, according to U.S. officials.

Could we be in for a re-run of the last war that never ended perhaps?
Apparently North Korea doesn't even have enough fuel to get it's outdated warplanes in the air.

Besides, it's almost planting season, when a large part of North Korea's peasant army is sent to live on farms to work as labourers.

'IF' we are backing down, and believe me Mr. Obama better be listening to his military advisers right now, then it is a ploy to be observed from outsiders.

I do not believe China wants N. Korea to attack anything....and I would bet that if N.K. does, they are going to get a bad spanking from big brother, not to mention the @ss whopp'n the rest of the world will dish out as well.

Right now, I am really only concerned with the human beings of Souel, North Korea and our Brave men and women serving in SK right now.

Do NOT underestimate North Korea. No weapon is obsolete until it cannot inflict causualties on the enemy any longer, no matter how old it is.

Even if EVERY CHINESE SOILDER was given only one grenade and a fully loaded rifle, I STILL don't think they could be held off...with conventional arms.

Exactly! North Korea is a buffer zone for China against the US. China invaded North Korea to prevent the US from conquering it in 1950, and would presumably do the same again.

US military bases in North Korea would be about as welcome to China, as Chinese military bases in Mexico would be to the US.

Just to Help Dusty from the University of Ferhoodelville : on the 38th Parallel
Few interesting fact's - Most important is the last sentence.

WE : US of A, DID IT FOR THEM

Stuff they taught us in High School : Record's of History

On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south.

This invasion was the first military action of the Cold War. By July, American troops had entered the war on South Korea’s behalf.

As far as American officials were concerned, it was a war against the forces of international communism itself.

After some early back-and-forth across the 38th parallel, the fighting stalled and casualties mounted with nothing to show for them.

Meanwhile, American officials worked anxiously to fashion some sort of armistice with the North Koreans.

The alternative, they feared, would be a wider war with Russia and China–or even, as some warned, World War III.

Finally, in July 1953, the Korean War came to an end. In all, some 5 million soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the war. The Korean peninsula is still divided today.

Mr. Dusty has a VERY difficult time telling the truth based upon FACT. He may give 10% of it but the rest ???

Whether the North invaded the South first, or it was the other way around, is still disputed by historians to this day.

The fact is, there already was a unified Korea, ruled from the South, prior to the US/Soviet invasion. The system of government the people of Korea had put in place was a communist system of government, which the Soviets essentially kept in place in the North, while the US overthrew it in the South.

So what the US of A (+ allies) did for the people of South Korea, was to overthrow the government they had chosen, and after a few years of direct military rule, replace it with a brutal regime that slaughtered it's own people.
Meanwhile, American officials worked anxiously to fashion some sort of armistice with the North Koreans.
The alternative, they feared, would be a wider war with Russia and China–or even, as some warned, World War III.
At best, that is an opinion. Not a fact.

Had the US not invaded, the people of South Korea might have got the system of government they had chosen at the time, rather than the one the US had imposed upon them.

It shouldn't be any wonder why large parts of the South Korean army defected to the North, when the North invaded.

A few more FACTS that Grey won't have learned in school:
Since the end of the Korean War 60 years ago, the Worker’s Party government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea) has repeatedly put forward virtually the same four proposals to the United States. They are:

1. A peace treaty to end the Korean War. 2. The reunification of Korea, which has been “temporarily” divided into North and South since 1945. 3. An end to the U.S. occupation of South Korea and a discontinuation of annual month-long U.S-South Korean war games. 4. Bilateral talks between Washington and Pyongyang to end tensions on the Korean peninsula.
