so if the N. Koreans struck China would definitely react.
Do u mean that if nk strike sk, china will attack north korea?
Would u have confidence when china attack south korean troops during the korean war far beyond it's breached borders and remained a close ally to nk, while only chinese netizens are the only ones involved in defence of nk's actions on the shelling of the civilian occupied island just a short while ago?
No doubt that there are social unrest that occur with the American troops, us is not more threatening than china when it comes to labelling of imperialism. Us have bias and contempt towards communism and fundamentalist religion, with or without the inherent restriction of freedom perceived in western eyes. South Korea had neither. Also while us still had occupied territories, these are not annexed ie they are not conquered to be integrated into it's national boundary. On the contrary, chinese occupation of Tibet is annexed into chinese boundary and fervently defended with the intention of placing Tibet, Tibetans and tibetan culture as a subgroup of the chinese counterpart.
In the same realms that china had attempted to recreate a new status that culturally, historically and territorially integrate it's current constituents, this just touches on the nerves of several neighboring countries. If ppl keep saying Korea is a vassal state to china in a manner of contempt, it will be ironical to exaggerate us troops at the corners as colonialism. Koreans had border, historical and cultural disputes with china, which further add a barrier for Koreans to trust china in times of war. in my opinion, sk should maintain normal trading relationship with both china and usa with no bias, keep american troops at the bay and decrease the numbers as when sk military had attained overwhelming edge against nk till nk is not a threat, and continue to protect the racial, cultural and historical integrity of the koreans and in the same realms at least in principle empathise the other people who are also at the mercy of being contempted as a subgroup of others.
the koreans is an east asian community as in the other communities around the region, and no matter how modernized and open it is, it will never be like america with a totally different historical and social environment with different social and family values. this is not going to change just becos there is american troops at one corner. there will be people who borders between two identity having living in two different nations, no doubt. in the waves of multiple clones having an issue with the whites which i think is far irrelevant in many discussed issues and taking it very personally, i hope those who had such an agenda return to think when is there such an irrational fear in their life.
