#4 China should invite the North Korean leader to a summit and then make him disappear. His usefulness has long passed and now he's a liability.

#5 Yuuup.

Again, PUDGY = KJU is walking a very fine, very dangerous, + potens existential line between appeasing NOKOR overlord Mainland China while at the same time seeking de facto, near-term inter-Korean reunification wid SOKOR. AS LONG AS BEIJING = MAINLAND CHINA DOES NOT GET BACK SOVEREIGN CONTROL OF ALLEGED RUNAWAY OR REBEL PROVINCE TAIWAN, THE FORMER WILL LIKELY NOT-N-NEVAR! APPROVE ANY REUNIFICATION VENTURE BETWEEN THE TWO KOREAS SHORT OF BENIGN BILATERAL COOP.

China already has significant PLA forces inside NOKOR, is in control of NOKOR's military + major national programs, + its already excessive or predominant share of trade wid NOKOR is only likely to increase over time, not decrease.

The longer the "status quo" goes on, the greater the likelihood of formal Chinese annexation of NOKOR under any scenario, HENCE PUDGY'S DEV OF
NUKES.

Pudge wants to be able to fire a LRBM(S) at the US-Allies in righteous Pro-Beijing andor anti-Western NOKOR kimchee/cabbage indignation, while simul being able to press a button that will divert the missle(s) toward Beijing.

Wid so many Allies in East Asia fearful of Chinese ambitions, among other, its unlikely that OWG Co-Superpower China's Amerikan sibling will be able to prevent war in the name of Chinese-specific strategic access.

OOOOOOOOOO, a "three-fer".

FYI the US is planning another mighty USN-LED FONOP in the SCS, while China's President Xi Jinping has repor declared or re-affirmed that China = Beijing will defend its sovereignty = territory from any threats.
