South Korean Paper Reports China Has Deployed 150,000 Troops To North Korea Border

Tyler Durden's picture

While the catalyst is unclear, it appears the market dropped as headlines of further sanctions against Russia appeared and reports of China deploying 150,000 troops to its North Korea border.

According to Korean news agency Chosun, the "Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops to the North Korean border in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances." The reason: the prospect of "military options", such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, like the one the United States launched on Syria.

More Google translated:

As the United States announced its independent North Korean behavior and moved the United States Navy's nuclear-powered Calvinus (CVN-70) carrier class to Singapore, the Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.


"The report said. It is because of the prospect of taking "military options", such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, just as the United States has launched an air raid on Syria.


Japan's Sankei Shimbun reported on the 9th that the Syrian missile strike in the United States shocked China, suggesting that the People's Liberation Army forces are moving toward the Yalu River, .


The newspaper said the video was also broadcast on the Internet, but the authorities removed the relevant information, saying the move was a medical and aft support unit for the Shenyang bulb (the northern light bulb)

Another possible catalyst is a report by Russia's interfax that Moscow is preparing for more sanctions, and has warned local air companies about a possible suspension of charter flights with Tu


Whatever the catalyst, the reaction is clear:

Dropping stocks below the levels right before Syrian airstrikes began...


The Dow is back at crucial support at the 50--day moving average...


Taking everything but Trannies back into the red for the day.

Gold is bid back over $1250 as USDJPY suddenly plunges.

Sucks sometimes thinking how you thought you were going to bring your kids up in a better world, yet the moneychangers and their Deep State lackeys have other thoughts and plans.
And to think a long time ago I used to put coins in the little Unicef or whatever milk carton to help save the world.

Now look where we are.

The only powers their master Satan grants them are the powers of destruction.  They read the story of Noah and thought "Wow, a great flood sure causes a lot of destruction!  I want to try my hand at something like that!"

Think of pop music.  They can't make you talented, but they can make you skanky, hot, naughty, taboo, put horns on you, make you wear meat for clothes (Lady Gaga). 

This is all they know.   Got a problem?  Destroy it.  No man no problem.  Deception.  Soulless.  Order out of chaos, that they create.

"We" are not where "they" are. Big difference in endgame. Most of "they" will be hiding under mountains, in caves, and cracks, knowing the doom that awaits them, once revealed. There is inbound. I pray that many of "we" are saved. If not, it is never a poor moment to make the decision.

Try to limit exposure to the sun from here on out, if you can. UV is way up, and x-ray/gamma is coming. The heliosphere and magnetosphere are completely out of whack. There is something causing massive disruption, within the system. The other planets are also being affected. It's being watched, but us plebes don't get to see that data.

Keep an eye on Mars. Its going to get hit. Hard. Before we do.


Keep faith, and wash in the blood of the Lamb, for his love of us is eternal; and so shall be our everlasting co-reign with Him.

I'd love to get a montage of people's faces when nukes are shown to be fake.

Kind of like the montage of Snowflake faces on the Night They Drove Old Cuntlery Down.


To be fair, for the most part it will come as a huge relief, and the populace will never again trust their erstwhile "leaders" any further than they can throw them (off the tops of buildings, ideally).

But for now, keep pushing the Flat-Earth, Church-Of-The-Holy-Trinity-'Splosion bullshit.

ETA: Oh the Flat-Earther douchebags don't like that, not one bit.

Tough. You brainless fanatics need a good swift kick to the zippers. The earth is stil round, and Newks are still a fantasy.

They were fucking good fakes at Bikini Atoll.

QuantumEasing's picture

Actually, they were pretty goddamned awful fakes:

As in, *LAUGHINGLY* bad.

For all the money that got sucked into the rathole, you would have thought they could have produced better.

No wave produced, (the atoll had huts down by the waterline) and no blast over-pressure to speak of (did not disturb clouds).

It's a beautiful dive destination btw. With zero radiation. Just got back from it last month, and took my own geiger counter. If that's what "newking" a place does, then there's nothing to worry about.

South Korea better do the same. There's going to a few million refugees in every direction when the SHTF there.

This is classic modern day piss poor journalism.  Which fucking border did the Chi-coms move 150k troops to?  The Chinese/North Korea border or the Nothe Korea/South Korea border?  Are they there to respond to a pre-emtive attack by the US on Northe Korea or are they there perhaps do a pre-emptive stirke on North Korea?....the author does not explain.

TheReplacement's picture

Obviously China put troops in at the SK/NK border... seriously?

How in the world would the author know why the troops were put on the Chinese/NK border besides the supposed reason cited from the sources IN THE ARTICLE!

HowdyDoody's picture

Just like those evil Rooskies moving troops to the border. Which border and in response to what?

eatthebanksters's picture

Why would the Chinese move 150k of their troops to th NK/SK border when NK has a 3m man standing Army! Do you think Kim Fat Fuck would allow 150k Chinese troops access to the southernmost border of his country so China has its own pincer on Fat Fuck's country? If you believe that then I want some of what you have in your needle. Assclown.

"...reports of China deploiying 150,000 troops to its North Korea border."


It's North Korea border is along the Yalu river.

eatthebanksters's picture

There is a North Korea border with China and a North Korea border with South Korea and nowhere in this piece of shit article does it specify which border.

Adahy's picture

Yes it does. China is the subject of that part of the sentence so 'its' refers to China's border.
Was I the only one paying attention in English class? And that was the shitty English class on the res. no less.

Nope. But keep wishing.

Was the first Korean "war" a reset? Was Vietnam? Operation Just Cause? Desert Storm? Enduring Freedom? Anaconda?

Also, what the actual fuck is a Calvinus-class?

CVN-70 is the Carl Vinson. Nimitz class.

My prediction: 6 months from now I will be asking all of you what happened to the big scary sabre rattling that was supposed to lead to a "reset." Have your responses prepared now.

Trump prolly told Xi last week he ain't gonna put up with the fat little bastard shooting missiles towards Japan and Xi using some common sense said I better put 150k troops on the Yalu just in case the short obese mongoloid in the Mao pantsuit on my border thinks I cut a deal with Trump.

Prudent action on Xi's part I'd say.

If the regime falls, China needs to stop the mass exodus of Nork refugees that would stream North, as well as occupy a buffer zone to keep ROKS off their border.

QuantumEasing's picture

Just like Pyongyang was nuked in 1950...

Oh wait...

robertsgt40's picture

Wow, what a coincidence.  Within a week, we've gone from "Syria can keep Assad",  to full confrontation with Russia over criminal missile strike and tweaking China with parking US Navy off N Korea coast. Is this a great country or what. BTW I'm old enough to remember the Gulf of Tonkin "incident". I was shipped over there 6yrs later. All fraud. 

king leon's picture

China absolutely hates the US because the US have threatened Chinese interests all the way through Africa to the M E .The US have been destabilizing countries that China have invested in heavily. The last thing China want's is a US/Korea alliance on China's border. China have big investments in Syria. Trump is delusional if he thinks he can cosy up to China after the threats he made to China over the man made islands in the south China sea's, It is most likely that the 150.000 Chinese troops on the N/K border are there to over run the south should Trump try to invade Syria.

Not sure, what if they colluded to get rid of fat boy?

If they did then Main Street will have to pay a heavy, heavy price.  Trump probably backed off on currency manipulation, support for China to keep wealth from fleeing, continued outrageous trade deals. advantageous to China not the US.  In other words, going against all that he campaigned on. 

Yep I am preparing to disembark the Trump Train.  What little hope I had for him is fading rapidly.

Not necessarily.  Chicoms may simply have come to the conclusion that the li'l butterball has outlived his usefulness.

I've been wondering if the kabuki theater in Syria was a distraction to get pieces in place to go after NK.

Vaq, think how bad that sounds. We now contemplate as SOP the USA committing an act of WAR simply to distract from another act of war.

Makes me wish this was a bad dream, and I will wake up soon. 
Nothing like knowing your nation is the biggest warmonger on the planet to upset your Chi.


El Vaquero's picture

I've still been wondering though.  59 missiles at $1.59 million a piece to do what was basically a light show doesn't send a strong message.  It doesn't make sense.  If I were a big swinging dick global power, I'd look at that and say "hmmmm, he'll make it look like he's ready to throw down, but he's not really ready to throw down."


That's why I say, we're missing too many peices to make sense of this. 

Giant Meteor's picture

Warning shot across the bow on fairly obvious "false flag" gas attack, more claims, no proof offered. It was a perfect opportunity to "make a statement", and again, look what was knocked out of the news. Deep state benefits, Trump got a bump with those calling for his head. He's a humanitarian now, presidential even ...

No more talk of Russian meddling in elections, no more talk of "unmasking" , Susan Rice, or possible treasonous acts by for administration.
