China Threatens To Bomb North Korea's Nuclear Facilities If It Crosses Beijing's "Bottom Line"

Tyler Durden's picture

With everyone putting down new and/or revised "red lines", be it on Syria or North Korea, it was now China's turn to reveal its "red" or rather "bottom line", and in a harshly worded editorial titled "The United States Must Not Choose a Wrong Direction to Break the DPRK Nuclear Deadlock on Wednesday" Beijing warned it would attack North Korea's facilities producing nuclear bombs, effectively engaging in an act of war, if North Korea crosses China's "bottom line."

The editorial in the military-focused Global Times tabloid, owned and operated by the Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper, said that North Korea’s nuclear activities must not jeopardize northeastern China, and that if the North impacts China with its illicit nuclear tests through either "nuclear leakage or pollution", then China will respond with force.

“China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China... If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back. By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own."

This, as the editorial puts it, is the "bottom line" for China; should it be crossed China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back," warned the editorial.

It is worth noting is that shortly after publication, the article seems to have been retracted without explanation, the URL now returning a "404" error. However not before the original article was cached on a webpage owned by China Military, courtesy of google.

In the editorial, the author also declared that the "People's Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own. A strike to nuclear facilities of the DPRK is the best military means in the opinion of the outside world." The northeastern Chinese provinces of Liaoning and Jilin share borders with North Korea. These two provinces and Heilongjiang are part of the Shenyang Military Region, one of seven military regions of the People's Liberation Army.

The editorial also explained the advantages to the world of a Chinese attack on North Korea's nuclear facilities.

It noted China and the world know the locations of North Korea's nuclear facilities. Once the PLA attacks these nuclear sites, North Korea will permanently suspend its nuclear weapons programs.
North Korea "has limited resources of nuclear materials and is strictly blockaded in the outside world, erasing the possibility for DPRK to get the materials again."

China also noted that "nuclear weapons is DPRK's trump card for its defiance of China and the United States. Once this card is lost, it will become obedient immediately."

The author then speculated rhetorically that if North Korea's "nuclear facilities are destroyed, they will not even fight back, but probably block the news to fool its domestic people. The DPRK will freak out if its nuclear facilities are destroyed." And yes, a Chinese author said "freak out."

The report also said that "the DPRK must not fall into the turmoil to send a large number of refugees, it is not allowed to have a government that is hostile against China on the other side of the Yalu River, and the US military must not push forward its forces to the Yalu River.” It notes that "this sentence is meant for the United States, because the premise of it is that the US military has launched attacks to the DPRK."

But what may be the most notable part of the oped is the mention in the Global Times editorial that North Korea will not be "not allowed to have a government that is hostile against China on the other side of the Yalu River."  This implies that if and when the US initiate strikes on NK, the Chinese PLA will likely send out troops "to lay the foundation" for a favorable post-war situation.

In other words, China may be just waiting for Trump to "decapitate" the North Korean regime, to pounce and immediately fill the power vacuum.

North Korea is the monkey on a stick that the al-CIA-duh pulls the strings of making it jump up and down to get the attention of the world. The manipulation of all the horrid media by the propagandistic evil liar ways is heavily used to control the narrative, and mass mind. See the storm coming and do not be caught by surprise when it slams down.


Satan can and will twist everything inside out upside down wrongo dongo and then totally expect you to go along with it and believe the idiotic hoaxy lies and deception of up is down and green is tangent and 5+6=49. Fools are lazy and do not investigate the truth.

Was that a slickery isrealli submarine off the west coast they were looking for a few days ago? Producers and doers of the rothschild/bush underwater earthquake causing machine(nuke)(trigger of fuckushima earthquake with added isrealli planted stuxnet virus into control mechanisms?

And...better watch out for them sneaking in and blasting an American ship over by NK. We would immediately with expedited speed see the rampage of a NK attack in all the fake stream media news promoting the harsh angles to no end until President Trump is forced into doing the worst thing before any kind of investigation into the truth of the matter. Look at what they learned and did after the fake false flag event in Syria lately. God only knows what kind of hell that will bring on the innocents of SK...the USA...the world if that kind of instigation to start moar waor happens...again.




Be on watch men and women for sneaking war instigators. They are hungry to start moar woar for the failing bankster zioempire of satan/lucifer. Any intelligence agency sponsored false flag event can happen any time. Here is the latest X-22 Report.:

Dear Mr President, please make a deal with NK and DO NOT attack them. Be a peacemaker, smoke the peace pipe and for goodness sake, help them people get some food! They are nutty because they are hungry!! Well, maybe not fatso, but remember what Granny would say. “The way to a man’s heart, is through his stomach.” Help them get the ability to grow their own foods, be enterprising, and self-sustaining. Let them have animals and seeds and then see the forces of creativity work. Any way is better than embroiling the innocents of the world in a protracted world woar. THAT, is NOT Making America Great Again.

Of course, a deal must be made and those NK people must decide to give up their Nukes in return for a promise of protection from the boogeyman from China, Russia, and America. Member, the banksters create all the boogeymen and isreal, the attack piggletdogs, do the dirty work of instigating reasons for the never ending waors so ONLY the banksters profit.

The greatest question that faces today’s leaders is, are you so stupid that you easily fall into the bankster trap of repeating the same old stupid woar cycles? Woars based on lies and dis/mis-information? Woars started mostly because of false flag events done by the mosad/mi6/al-CIA-duh/turks/jesuits/ and all the other sordid minion fool flunky stooges of babylon’s bankster empire of dust.

Sir President Trump. You can not have an honorable govt, if you are surrounded by dishonorable people. Period!

Starting moar woars so the oil oligarchy CFR/tri-lat/bild/COR assorted boxcarr do-do woar industry of bankster evil can continue to profit while the poor get poorer, is not the will of God. It is the same old satanic/luciferic shit show. Another woar cycle that many should have learned the lessons of in the last ones created for moar bankster consolidation and profits of the evil arsehole puppet masters that control the political puppets.

Sir Trump, whose puppet arte you? God’s! Bare the standards of the Great Peacemaker. Smoke the pipe of Peace like the American Indians do. There is way to much, to argue about so little.

Oh we pray dear Sir, that you listen to your heart, and not the mind that can be confounded and made to believe anything. Follow your heart, for it knows. It is the duty of every good heart to ensoul faith. Faith is measured by good deeds, patients, and temperance. All men are judged by THEIR OWN words, deeds, and actions while incarnate on the earth plane. Faith is as strong as as your hopeful heart.





To each and every crew member aboard, know there is sincere love for you all. Even you little pointed heads that do all you can to create chaos in yer perfect satanic/luciferic negative-nancy ways. To you all this song below is forever dedicated with the hope and faith that yes, mankind IS smart enough to learn from our horrible history. Most specifically, here’s a prayer hoping we all have learned that moar woar does not work out for the average Truth Seeker. It’s especially hard on children....and the Victory Garden.


Blessings and Grace in the Highest House flows to you ALL NOW!

Nonsense. Hundreds of nukes have been detonated in tests since the 40s and nothing at all happened except for 1 in 3 cancer rates.

The obvious way to resolve this situation is: Dennis Rodman (with a possible assistant/sidekick Madonna).

Rodman can teach dear fat leader some rebounding skills while Madonna can blow both of them if that doesn't convince him to ditch his nukes-of even if it does. Then send the tatooed one to represent us at the UN instead of that loser Haley. You've got to fight insanity with insanity-and who better than Rodman and Madonna? Once he gets us kicked out of the UN he can represent us at the Worldbank and the IMF. That will show the absolution contempt we have for these organizations.

Also in other news, there is at least one Austrlian politician that doesn't believe US intelligence on the Syria gas attack.


Independent MP Andrew Wilkie has questioned whether Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was responsible for last week's chemical weapons attack on civilians that prompted US missile strikes.


Mr Wilkie, a former senior intelligence analyst, said there was no doubt the attack occurred but Australia should not blindly accept assurances from US authorities.

His comments come after US Defence Secretary James Mattis said "there is no doubt" the Assad regime was responsible for planning and orchestrating the deadly attack.

"Frankly, I just don't trust the Trump administration," Mr Wilkie told Sky News.

"It would make a lot of sense for them to beat the drums of war again when they are under so much pressure domestically."

This will not happen.  

Why do people think that the US or even China can just waltz into NK at will?  Ignoring that they have a bunch of nukes that can be used on short range missiles, or boats, trains, planes and submarines.

Trump's ham-fisted attempt at geopolitics should be seen as a god-send to China and Russia as it makes it so much easier to lure him into traps.

  • China does NOT want a unified Korea because it would undoubtedly become another staging ground and extended military base for the USA. 
  • Russia would also be dead against it because NK has a border with Russia, and the certainly don't want a US missile base sitting that close to Vladivostok.

NK is a tool for China to offset US military encirclement of China.

NOW China can use NK to give Trump a massive black eye and make him seem powerless.


China can simply provide fake 'intelligence' to South Korea, Japan and USA (and Chinese media) apparently from a NK 'insider' - that the North Koreans have positioned a number of nuclear devices within and around South Korea and Japan as a means of insurance against the West.

Now with such intelligence given to the nations, and in the media - what is Trump and his Spanish Armada going to do, what are the Japanese and SK going to tell Trump?    Trump can do nothing but shake his fist, get a barrage of insults from Kim, then go home.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

Rumor has it that Kim is suffering from late stage syphilis and is going down hill fast. The worry for China is refugees from NK and a United Korea. Another rumor is that they have moved 150,000 troops to the NK border including hospital facilities. Looks like a strike is coming. The recent meeting between Trump and the Chinese leader was to set the terms. The US or China strikes and then China sets up a puppet regime.

Fat Boy Kim is about to get some lap band surgery, Trump style.

So the article failed to mention what this "bottom line" is precisely.
