I'm 99% in agreement with this. The only thing that worries me about China (at least in reference to Korea) is their need to maintain a buffer between their border and a unified pro-U.S. Korea which is the likely result should war actually occur.

Maybe they would diplomatically push for a smaller, puppet state NK?
