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.

Something tells me this will work against Trump

Xi knows where his bread is buttered long term

Yes, but the Chinese already own more than half of the continent of North America!!!

Wake the fuck up dude, your true rulers would love nothing more than to see you and fellow 'mericans working for Chinese wages!!!!

HRClinton's picture

LOL. If you saw recent headlines, the Chinese want to bring in their own workers for new Chinese factories in Canada.

Guess where this is headed?  'South', you might say. Better learn Mandarin, not Russian.

Snaffew's picture companies like PCLN and EXPE are surging.  Looks like a lot of people are booking trips to the middle east!

Buy Raytheon and Gold.  

North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, China,  the last remaing communist countries.  Karl Marx would be rolling over in his grave.  


Caleb Abell's picture

It's kind of a stretch to call China a communist counist country.  They are way better at capitalism than the crony capitalist Americans.

HRClinton's picture

The Chinese are better at Capitalism than Americans, and were better at Communism than Americans will be.

SwiffFiffteh's picture

Yeah, if by "better at capitalism" you mean "stealing tech from western nations" and by "better at communism" you mean "using capitalism instead".

Pretty crazy Gold needs WW3 for blast off.

Neocons love war. The bigger, the better. They get off on the destruction of major cities.

Herodotus's picture

Look at what Oppenheimer did to Nagasaki and Hiroshima.  Morgenthau wanted to depopulate all of the German cities.

RedBaron616's picture

Last statement is true. Japanese asked for Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Worshipping their Emperor and believing he was a god. Treating POWs like dirt and worse. Never surrender. Defend the homeland. I suppose you would have been happier with 100,000 American casualties invading Japan?

Adahy's picture

Invade? That wouldn't be smart at all. Try a joint US/Russ blockade. Wouldn't have taken long, especially considering surrender was already underway.

US Nork policy should be called "The terrible two's". Treat KJ Un like the fat toddler he is; when he throws temper tantrums ignore him.

All this nuke and missile business has been going on for decades with the express purpose of shaking down the Chinks and Yanks anytime the Nork funds run out. We need to flip the bird at KJ Un and turn our back on him.

adampeart's picture

A horde of starving midget Asians should not be our concern. If the Sorks and Nips are concerned let them deal with and pay for their own defense.

That will slow Trump down. NK is not a threat to America.

BitchesBetterRecognize's picture

Exactly. In fact, that move by Xi & the Chinese will upset the Pentagon crazies, since they're so fucking thirsty for war.

150,000 deterrents or first casualties.

China will take the Korean peninsula and call a referendum. 

HRClinton's picture

Results: 97% vote for annexation to China.

They learned from Crimea.


Sizzurp's picture

Maybe Xi is going to take out NK himself? Maybe Xi and Trump struck a deal?

ToSoft4Truth's picture

Maybe Trump and Xi decided how many Americans are an acceptable loss, collateral damage if you will. 

Kaeako's picture

And why, exactly, would they risk the stability of their precious buffer? Even if replacing the current Dear Leader is something they have an interest in, it's not worth risking a collapse of the country and they most definitely won't allow the US to do it either.

quax's picture

Trump may have offered to withdraw US troops from a united NK, which will bring the entire country into China's immediate sphere of influence.

Kaeako's picture

If only it was that simple. A presidential decree and puff, Korea is united and everyone gathers to sing kumbaya around a campfire. Completely unrealistic.

Dickweed Wang's picture

Completely unrealistic.


Yes indeed . . . the North and South Koreans hate each other.  This is nothing like East and West Germany and the fall of the Berlin wall.

quax's picture

Clearly you are unaware how most Germans feel about Saxons. 

quax's picture

Nowhere did I imply that this will happen without a preceding military intervention.

RagaMuffin's picture

More interesting, did Xi and DT come to a shared strategy for NK...............

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

150,000?   That is nuthin.


They will send a million across the border if they feel threatened.   They will not allow USA troops on the north Korean/Chinese border.   Any solution requires a demilitarized Korea.


The Chinese are not nearly as accommodating as Russians, but they rarely make threats.   They operate differently.  We need to remain aware of that.

Laughing.Man's picture

China have long abandoned the Human Wave tactic.  They've been thinning out their ranks to get rid of the useless mouth breathers. Also, remember that China isn't in a state of war so it'll take time to ramp up.  Eventually they will send that many if it gets hot.

Trump's ego is writing checks this country can't cash

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

If they repeat the mistake of McArthur we will have our hands full.   Then that of course would be the perfect time for others around the world to seize the initiative.  


If I were an opponent I know I would if I saw the USA bogged down in a new war with China.


Then the anti USA hackers around the world join in.   Can our infrastructure handle it?

1.  Don't be such a defeatist.  Trump is negotiating for us. 


2.  Cover yourself with Jimbo 3:16.

But hey, Alex Jones loves what Trump has done for the economy and building the wall! Wait, are you saying Trump hasn't actually done any of those things? You mean all he has done is cross over to the democrats and become Hillary without a pant-suit? Say it ain't so!

On a side note: Just how long do you think it will be until the dems pull the pin on Trump? Trump is still hated by every democrat alive and has now lost the support of most of the base that elected him. Just how is it possible for Trump to last, even until the midterms which he as all but guaranteed to be a big win for the dems. Just how has Trump done anything at all positive for his country? Unless you reckon going to war with Russia and China is good for America...

Deus Irate's picture

Say goodbye to another supreme court pick too. Trump has pissed that away as well. In one move he has destroyed the right and guaranteed a big democrat turnaround.

SwiffFiffteh's picture

Ahh, gotta love these half baked predictions uttered with such conviction and certainty.

Deus Irate's picture

The more I think about it the more I realize Trump and the people around him are absolute idiots and rank amateurs. If you are a thinking person free of mindless sycophancy you are probably shitting your pants right now, as are likely all of our allies as they watch this buffoon blunder us all into ww3.

Alex Jones seems desperate to support Trump while he tries to straddle the fence with his viewers. He refuses to condemn the action in Syria or to criticize Trump in any way.

He is 100% controlled opposition.

TheMeatTrapper's picture

Just because he hasn't gone full retard only means that perhaps he's growing up.

serotonindumptruck's picture

He's an establishment shill, and his future is predicated upon maintaining and promoting the false left-right paradigm.

Sad to see you selling his snake oil.

Grumbleduke's picture

listened live on youtube today, and it seemed like Jones is ready to throw Trump under the bus. He was taking calls, and let people actually talk... And boy oh boy, some of his listners were pissed. And Alex himself looks pissed, too. Even took a huge swing at Israel.  I think he's sincere, yet only human - many people can be duped by charisma and lies.

When is Nikki Haley going to call for free, multi-party elections in China?

"When is Nikki Haley going to call for free, multi-party elections in China?"

About the same time she will call for free multi-party elections in the US.
