Peace & Governance Concept: China Assimilates North Korea As A Protectorate Territory

Hello All,

I'm about to state a very unconventional proposed solution that the unstable State of North Korea poses to the world at large. In a move that will make the Chinese appear as either saviors or as a rising colonial power of the 21st century from the East.

Noting that the oldest known civilizations known to humanity besides that of Northern Africa or Asia Minor. Is also located in the East that being with present day China and India. China in particular was a super power many thousands of years ago. And, with the ascending of the East it will be once again. This is not an occurrence to be feared, since it can yield many wonderful opportunities for those of us in the West.

As the pendulum continues to swing back onto the East. Taking note that in the last 2 to 3 centuries the Western powers were known as the Colonial powers of the world. Which to this day Great Britain, France, and the United States all have territories far from their mainland nations. As the East becomes prominent in regards to China and India I foresee both nations becoming the new colonial powers, but from the East. Aiding unstable nations be it in Africa, the Middle East, or in Central and South America. This won't happen tomorrow, but it could potentially occur in the coming centuries.

With this assessment in hand at least as how I foresee it taking a cue from Human history. In order to diffuse the hostility coming from a very unstable North Korea. I propose for the Chinese to further reduce embarrassment from actions or saber rattling from North Korea. Where the tensions of South Korea if not the United States or the United Nations could fully escalate into another armed conflict with North Korea. That through negotiations the Chinese step in and Annex North Korea as its protectorate State. Basically becoming a Chinese territory, since China has had experience on a much smaller scale in terms to "Hong Kong". When the British handed its former territory back to China when its lease of Hong Kong had elapsed.

Although the Chinese will not be leasing North Korea as a territory. Besides any hopes for a Korean unification will be dashed completely for the South Koreans. It will spell an end to the troublesome armistice that ended the Korean conflict some 50 years earlier. Where the aggressions of North Korea will be muted entirely by the Chinese. The 6 party talks with North Korea will cease due to the fact that Chinese will assume complete supervision of the North Korean nuclear program.

If North Korea accepted itself as a Chinese Protectorate it will see itself in a new and stronger light. The present critical state of a North Korean economy will be merged into the overall Chinese economy. The adoption of the Chinese yuan as a currency will be assumed. China for its part will assume responsibility for the welfare and infrastructure needs of North Korea. By gradual benchmarks the North Korean military will be assimilated into the overall Chinese military forces as conscripts.

China in return will gain access to all North Korean mineral rights, maritime fisheries, and agriculture lands. Following the rulebook as to how China is already developing such commodity rich assets within Africa.

The North Korea president and ruling elites will become equal partners with the Chinese in governance of North Korea at all levels of government. The North Korean defacto monarchy will be recognized by the Chinese State. Where the monarchy will have a say in national and military policy with limited powers. As agreed to during the negotiations with the Chinese where they assumed a greater responsibility with North Korea as its protectorate.

The West be it the United States, European, and the United Nations. If not to a limited extent the South Koreans and the Japanese will have one former fear from North Korea assailed. Although a new fear to replace it in watching as to how the expansionism of China will be displayed. Where its military powers becoming even greater in absorbing the 4th greatest army in the world, that being of North Korea.

The West can not have its cake and eat it too, at least not at the same time. So with this fact stated an uneasy "Win / Win" scenario can be achieved. Where the North Korean threat becomes emasculated by the Chinese. Although with it the Chinese gaining its first major territorial block. By fulfilling its destiny as a colonial power from the East for the 21st century and beyond.
