The U.S., China, and North Korea – a Sobering Assessment

Just after yesterday’s posting on the US, China and North Korea I saw a posting from Herschel Campbell in this morning’s edition of The Hill.  Campbell’s article, The Time for doing nothing on North Korea is Over, offers a sobering assessment of what could  happen in the wake of a military confrontation.  It’s long been known that North Korea has thousands of artillery pieces essentially holding Seoul hostage.  At the same time, he proposed some similar ideas:  the possibility of a naval blockade of North Korea and the possibility of China undertaking a regime change in the North.  One thing I think everyone agrees on though, is that time is running out.
