    One way to know for sure if China is going to turn on NK is if china cancels the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty , or when 2021 comes (assuming todays NK is still there) and china does not renew this treaty.

    Till the above happens, I don't think china will unilaterally make any move against NK, unless provoked(like NK finally making a nuke, attacking SK etc).

    Which leads to the interesting question - what does that mean in concrete terms? Chna can turn the screws at whatever speed it chooses, but just what is it prepared to do & just what result might it bring? Will be curious to watch.

    And the North Koreans don't give a single shit about what the Chinese say as long as the aid keeps rolling in. And unless China wants to trigger a full-scale catastrophe, they'll keep sending it.

    Theatening nuclear strikes on the US will no doubt fast track his regime to its eventual end. If we stop playing games with them and lay an ass whiping on them once and for all. Its either that or the game continues. The 28 year old has libraries to learn about threatening anyone with a nuclear strike and its consequences.

    And this is where we SHOULD be pressuring China to relate a very direct and clear message since they could all become eventual Chinese immigrants.

    I think they sold some to the Iranians during that big war, to match the Iraqi G-5s.

    They would fire some arty rounds at the north, minutes after the nk left the premises
    and claim large nk casualties to reassure the south public audience .

    this is not Cb , it is a public relations stunt.

    I mean, don't you think?

    how do these SP units compare to an M109A6 Paladin?

    It has tracks, spades and a gun tube.

    That's where the comparison ends.

    So now our F-15E pilots know what to look for . . . . .

    On a separate note (S2? Gunny? You paying attention?), how do these SP units compare to an M109A6 Paladin?

    IMO, When all is said and done...target the regime and its military leaders that stoke this "cause" for war first and foremost and by any and all means necessary drone strike, carrier strike, tomahawk strike etc. But make sure that all who continue to stir this get whats coming to them once and for all. In other words, before they get across the border and dont let "sanctuary" deter you one iotta.

    They can certainly compose a great picture; a nice battery, a gun firing with projectile captured in flight, ammo layed out on a pallet - it tells a story and provides plenty of suplememtary info. The photographer is very good. :) This weapon reminds of the old US 175mm gun.

    Please, let's end this round of mud-slinging. Stick to the topic at hand.

    In any case, you can choose to listen to the person who tells you what you want to hear or the people who tell you what you need to survive. Personally I'm sorta hoping you ignore us.
    And I hope that others follow suit with him in ignoring you. Speak for yourself.
