Renewed reasons for war....you betcha
Those who don't understand why the war that never ended has never rekindled after sixty years, are probably products of government education since the late 1960's.
It has not been out of love or singular independence on the part of either of the Korea's that they have remained at ease and not at open war for the last fifty years. The simple truth remains, that the north has remained at bay, because America has stood prepared to reinvest our blood and treasure to insure that communist goals of complete control of the Korean peninsula are never realized. Combined with the fact that China, who paid for and sponsored a good portion of the last war, has been in no position or state of desire to see the conflict resurrected.
Times change. China is now a wealthy and soon to be super power with close ties and allegiances with the newly resurrected and oil flush Russia. Therefore, in the current state of weakened leadership and purposefully bled away stature that America now occupies, it is understandable that the lunatic leader of North Korea would be interested in rekindling hostilities with the south.
The stage is set. All that is required is a provocation either real or imagined and the peninsula is aflame once again. But this time Kim gets to try out his new toys and the Chinese get a front row seat to watch both the battle and the pitiful reaction of America as it is forced to admit that we can no longer save South Korea. Which immediately leads to another point of interest in the region. The Chinese have long been in preparation for the invasion and retaking of Taiwan and a rekindling of war on the Korean peninsula will only hasten their plans and desires to see that fulfilled.
So yes, tread softy cheeky, cheeky monkeys. Did the North Koreans launch an unprovoked attack against the South Korean ship? In all probability yes. And will the South Koreans retaliate? No. They now know that they have neither support or backing from their Allie of the past fifty seven years.
It's just a matter of time now.
