    This article reports that China has moved 150,000 troops to the North Korean border.

    Thats as many troops as the U.S. has stationed in Iraq.

    Kinda doubt China is going to invade, if that's the implication. China's role in all this is pretty much defensive - they see stability in the area as more important than taking NK out, unless the koreans are dumb enough to make threats in their direction.
    In any case, the chinese president doesn't have any elections to look forward to, and there's no oil in Korea...:wink:
