China and Russia warns U.S. about deploying a missile shield in S. Korea

April 2016 SOUTH KOREAChina and Russia urged the United States on Friday not to install a new anti-missile system in South Korea, after Washington said it was in talks with Seoul in the wake of nuclear arms and missile tests by North Korea. The United States and South Korea have begun talks on possible deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system after North Korea tested its fourth nuclear bomb on Jan. 6 and conducted missile tests.
The nuclear test and missile launches are in violation of U.N. resolutions against North Korea backed by Russia and China. U.S. and South Korean officials have expressed concern that the North could attempt a fifth nuclear test in a show of strength ahead of its Workers’ Party congress, which begins on May 6.
North Korea test-fired what appeared to be two intermediate range ballistic missiles on Thursday, but both failed, the U.S. military said. Speaking at joint press briefing with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the United States should respect “legitimate concerns” of China and Russia over the missile system. “This move goes beyond the defensive needs of the relevant countries. If it is deployed it will directly impact China’s and Russia’s respective strategic security,” Wang said.
“Not only does it threaten the resolution of the peninsula nuclear issue, it quite possibly could pour oil on the fire of an already tense situation, and even destroy strategic equilibrium on the peninsula.” North Korea’s actions should not be used as an excuse to make moves that would escalate tensions, especially the U.S. deployment of an anti-missile system, Lavrov said, according to an interpretation in Chinese.
North Korea’s drive to develop a nuclear weapons capability has angered China, Pyongyang’s sole major diplomatic and economic supporter. But Beijing fears THAAD and its radar have a range that would extend far beyond the Korean peninsula and into China. Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Thursday that Beijing would not allow war and chaos to break out on the Korean peninsula. North and South Korea remain technically at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, rather than a treaty. The North routinely threatens to destroy South Korea and its major ally, the United States. –Reuters

    Probably see a major Chinese troop movement(nice word for invasion) into North Korea?

    • Utopia: the Collapse says:

      Chess

      All the pieces are in place. They’re just waiting for the right crisis to act.

      • Dennis E. says:

        And this could be the right crisis–getting dangerous

      • Utopia: the Collapse says:

        China
        The world is scary and getting scarier

        It absolutely frightening just how dangerous the world is becoming. The price of technology and progress? A world full of madmen, egomaniacs, and sociopath warmongers who seem hell-bent on destroying and conquering – even if it means their own country is reduced to ashes in the process? In the old days, we only had to worry about one missile from one country pointed at our heads.

        We don’t question the rationale of why these weapons are made in the first place but it sparks all kinds of heated debates if they will ever be used. Why make something if you have no intention of ever using it? Is this what modern industry has become, manufactures of “fear” rather than “widgets?” If so, maybe that explains the global economic stagnation and malaise the world is suffering from.

        Flashback to 2005 Chinese General threatens to destroy U.S. with nukes http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/1494176/Chinese-general-threatens-nuclear-attack-on-US-in-war-of-words.html

        A country that is willing to sacrifice up to 80% of its population in a nuclear engagement to destroy the U.S. is someone to be seriously concerned about. China has a first-strike policy. Who knows when or if they will ever reach that hour or day to act on impulse?

    Yes and you have to wonder if China like some other nations, have signed on to the idea of serious
    population reduction to save/rekindle planet resources?
