Nobody but Kim Jongun knows what he hopes to achieve with his saber-ratting campaign, but the young North Korean leader probably didn’t set out to aid the United States, the sworn enemy of three generations of Kims, at the expense of his country’s main ally, China.
In a boon for US policy that can only add to China’s frustration with Kim. North Korean bellicosity has helped reinforce an American Strategy of rebalancing its security policies toward the Asia-Pacific region. To a China that often sounds more wary of Washington than of Pyongyang, months North Korean missile and nuclear tests followed by a daily stream of blood thirsty war threats may be worrisome, but the US reaction is even more troubling.
We understand what kind of regime North Korea is, but we also understand that North Korea is playing games,” said Sun Zhe, Director of the Centre for US-China relations at Beijing’s Tsinghua University.
Most importantly, we are complaining that the United States is using military drills as an excuse to continue to do this (rebalancing) putting up B-2s and other advanced weapons systems, he said.
The US deployments, although focused on North Korea and mostly temporary could be adapted or expanded to counter the extensive array of anti-access military capabilities Beijing has built up to delay or prevent the arrival of American forces to areas near china in the event of conflict.
