Preparing for a second Korean War

By Paul Lin 林保華

Therefore, the US might have promised that it would be responsible for air strikes and that the ground fighting would be China’s job, so that the US does not get stuck in the mud.

China, on the other hand, would resolve the issue by installing a puppet regime that listens to it and would remove nuclear facilities. Kim Jong-nam, the eldest son of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, was China’s original choice of a leader in Pyongyang. He has been assassinated, but his young son survives, making it easy for China to send a “regent” to take control of the North.

Although the Korean Peninsula continues to be divided and a war between China and the US remains a possibility, at least there would be no nuclear threat from North Korea, so any war would be a limited one.

It seems that President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has also received certain information and is positioning Taiwan. What happens to Taiwan once war breaks out will be a matter of great concern.
