But why does China bother to prop up North Korea, anyway? The pariah state is a diplomatic and economic liability, an albatross around China's neck as it tries to shape itself into a responsible global power.

No, it means no US base right on their border... like we wanted with Vietnam even if we were also propping up French colonial interests too. It is the closest thing to seizing Chinese cities for mandates like the western colonial powers used to love to do.

The good old days when seizing ports was not even called terrorism... it was called they aren't strong enough to stop us! Kind of like with the Native Americans just a sort of eminent domain...

Good article. Noted. The six words, "No war. No instability. No nukes...," are goals that the US should strive to achieve. If we could end our endless warmongering, end the political instability caused by corporate payola, and eliminate our stockpile of nuclear weapons; then the world would be a much safer place. Quite simply, these are three goals that make a lot of sense for all nations.

However, if one had to guess why no real progress will be made towards these objectives, then yes, the answer probably is American imperialism and/or colonialism.
