Reports have come in that China has made a threat to bomb North Korea and it’s nuclear facilities if they, in any way, cross their “bottom line”.
According to reports from Zerohedge, China has now turned to reveal its “bottom line” in a harshly worded editorial with the title “The United States Must Not Choose a Wrong Direction to Break the DPRK Nuclear Deadlock on Wednesday”. Beijing warned that they would attack North Koreas’ facilities especially the ones which are assigned with producing nuclear bombs, effectively engaging in an act of war, if Kim Jong Un crosses China’s “bottom line”.
In the editorial from the military-focused Global Times tabloid, it was stated that North Korea’s nuclear activities must not jeopardize northeastern China, and that if the North affects China with its illicit nuclear tests, China will be ready to respond with force.
“China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China… If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back. By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own.”
In the editorial, it was also explained that there will be some advantages in the whole world of a Chinese attack on North Korea’s nuclear facilities.
According to further details of the editorial, China as well as the rest of the world know the locations of North Korea’s nuclear facilities, and once the PLA attacks these nuclear sites, North Korea will be forced to permanently suspend their nuclear weapons programs.
North Korea “has limited resources of nuclear materials and is strictly blockaded in the outside world, erasing the possibility for DPRK to get the materials again.”
China also noted that “nuclear weapons is DPRK’s trump card for its defiance of China and the United States. Once this card is lost, it will become obedient immediately.”
