Yes, I asked just that question. Consider this, N.Korea is armed with pre-vietnam era Soviet and Chinese military hardware. N.Korea does not so much as breathe without China's orders. China is facing a huge monetary inflation problem. This is in part due to fuel prices but mostly due to China allowing their own economy grow by a totally unsustainable 12%. In economics, when something grows in numbers or value by 12% in one year, you get what economists call a "bubble" and with China getting 75% of it's food from the USA where crop failures have been common this year plus we burn at least 10% of our corn for ethanol China cannot afford any more economic setbacks. China is already sitting on a giant economic plus a just revealed inflationary monetary disaster as it is. With Americans spending less (far less than bernanke or geithner will admit) so all those little and big trinkets that are made in China aren't selling anymore. China geared their whole economy toward selling to us just as America did with Europe during the world wars.
To the left is a modern Korean MiG51 which it currently uses in it's air force. If it looks familiar, it was developed from crashedKorean war F-86s and Soviet MiG21s combined with Nazi technology borrowed from Russia.
