Apparently the Chinese Foreign Minister has described the existing attitude between the USA and North Korea as two speeding trains, headed towards each other on the same track.

He could well be right. The imposition of restrictions on North Korea by the USA and the United Nations have not changed Kim Jong Uns aggressive attitudes. He continues to develop nuclear weapons, and to fire test rockets towards Japan. On the other hand, the likelihood of the USA trying to stop the nuclear profileration by offering sweeteners to North Korea are not highly likely to reap results. Korea wants nothing less that the complete withdrawal of US troops and armaments from South Korea, and the lifting of embargoes.

It aint gonna happen.

One solution being discussed is that China and the USA, who are not on particularly friendly terms, in no small part due to Trumps sniping at the Chinese, could combine to take proactive military action against North Korea. Japan and other neighbouring countries would be likely to join in, as could Australia and the UK. Victory could/would see the reunification of Korea.

That only leaves the question of Russia, known to be supplying North Korea with rockets and probably nuclear technology. Would Russia side with North Korea against China and the USA?

Would China and the US, as a combined force, be willing to take on Russia and complete the job by taking back the Crimea?
