    No.

    China will not allow North Korea to start a war. If Kim Jong Ill gets too out of line, China will either take him out and replace him with somebody stable or invade North Korea themselves first and put in another puppet under the guise of doing it for the UN.

    It serves China no purpose what-so-ever for Korea to be united.

    1) China knows if they go to war against the UN and NATO, their economy will fold since it is being artificially held up by the dollar. They would lose the majority of their sales. All of their bonds they own from the US would become worthless because chances are the US economy would plunge further down.

    2) If China stays out, North Korea will lose and Korea would be united under a pro-western government and have a combined military larger then China's.

    3) China already has a problem with refugees fleeing from North Korea to China, a war would mean a lot more North Koreans flee to China then already are.

    By taking out Kim or invading North Korea first, they retain control over the rebuilding and keep their safety buffer on one of the main historical paths of invasion into China.

    If South Korea attacks first (which is no interest at all to South Korea, especially with the capital is in artillery range of North Korea), then China could come to the aid of their "ally" against an aggressor and control the rebuilding of North Korea after the war.

    So don't worry, it wont be World War III.

    Your a bit late. About 50 people have asked more or less this same question today.

    And NO it will not lead to all-out war. North and South Korea ARE AT WAR and have been since 1950. This is just one in a long list of cross-border shooting incidents over the last 57 years since the general cease-fire. In the end nothing more will come of it than came of any of the other incidents.

    I always thought Iran or any Arab countries would start it by invading Israel.

    Germany, Israel's "2nd best friend" and their obvious first, the US will rush for Israel's defense which will escalate into a war that will basically involve a lot of the world's economic and military power.

    In the end, our population will decrease by 1 - 3 billion. Most of them Soldiers and people in the Middle East.

    Then the war enters East Asia.

    Starting with North Korea and South Korea.

    North Korea is always threatening war. Seriously, start paying attention to the news over the next few years and I guarantee you they will threaten war an average of 3 times a year.

    It's certainly possible, yet very stupid. North Korea would get wiped off of the face of the earth by the United States and any other countries support the United States if they tried to start something. I can guarantee that. China would most likely back NK, and probably attack the US. It's probably the most the logical spot where WW3 would begin...Second being the middle east with Iran and Israel
