#1 As before, as an alleged sovereign state + "friend", not "vassal" or other of mainland China, the DPRK must balance its perceived national agendum + "Manifest Destiny" agz being seen as "too successful" in the eyes of watchful overlord China. Few iff any in the US-West includ Mama Russia believe that the DPRK will truly launch a LR Military Missle or Civie Space Rocket widout China's knowledge or approval.

Both North Korea + South Korea have a common or vested interest in preventing China from taking over more Korean ancestral territory than they already have.

-----------

* ION FREEREPUBLIC > CHINA TESTING WATERS WID US WID PROVOCATIVE ACTS.

"Post-US", World #1 wannabe Rising China = OWG Caliphate-happy Rising Iran = testing the strengths or weaknesses of the Obama Admin???

ARTIC = Among other, CHINA SEES THE US AS ATTEMPTING TO ENCIRCLE OR ISOLATE IT VEE OBAMA'S "STRATEGIC PIVOT" IN ASIA-PACIFIC.

FREEP POSTER = broadly argued that CHINA could attempt to land troops in GUAM, but doubts OBAMA will do anything to stop it???

#2 Other ...

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > PHILIPPINE ANGER AT CHINESE DRONES FLYING AROUND HUANG-YAN [PHIL = Panatag].

Besides China sending in UAVS to conduct recce patrols over PHIL-claimed islands in the Spratleys, many Filipinos are also upset at China's alleged plan to send its new "LIAONING" CV + FLOTILLA to cruise near Panatag + South China Sea after completion of its WESTPAC exercises.

versus

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > NEW AIRCRAFT CARRIER TO MAKE RUSSIA POWERFUL. Combines potent Command-n-Control [IMO read, SPAWAR] wid the capabilities of a powerful defensive ship [read, AAW + BMD].

"COMRADE STANISLAV" NUCLEAR SUPERCARRIER ...
- 50,000-plus tonnes.
-80 fixed-wing aircraft + Helos.

However, because its based mostly on Cold War-era = 1980's CVN designs, Mama Russia wants to review + incorporate the latest + futurist Techs into the class.

YOU JUST GOTTA LOVE REAGAN-BUSH ERA.

versus

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > LEGACY AIRCRAFT [US-World = Cold War] ARE UNSURVIVABLE, IMPOTENT, + USELESS, in the face of rapidly-progressive/innovative 21st century Techs.

E.g. US F-15's, F-16's, F-18's, + even late 20th Century early stealth aircraft,etc. [Millenials?]are all now so much "easy prey"???

#3 DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > US SENATE OKAYS AMENDMENT BACKING JAPAN [agz China]ON SENKAKUS DISPUTE.

* RELATED TOPIX > US SENATE GIVES BACKING FOR JAPAN CONTROL OF DIAOYUS IFF ATTACKED.

IOW, US "armed intervention"???

Yoohoo, VLAD = RUSSIA, you're up to bat!

versus

* TOPIX > DANGEROUS MOVES IN THE EAST CHINA SEA COULD BRING CHINA AND JAPAN INTO ARMED CONFLICT.

* SAME > CHINA: US MOVES ON DIAOYU ISLANDS COULD BACKFIRE AGZ ITSELF.

* SAME > PHILIPPINES DENOUNCES CHINESE PLAN TO SEARCH SHIPS PASSING THORUGH SOUTH CHINA SEA [PHIL = West Philiipine Sea/West Sea].

RELATED > PH [Philippines] ONLY HAS TWO WW2 SHIPS, PINOY TELLS KIDS.

* SAME > GUEST POST: WILL CHINA GO TO WAR IN 2013?
