China have openly said that they oppose North Korea's current stance. It makes no sense at all for China to support North Korea militarily at this point, it ain't the 50s any more.

When push comes to shove I doubt they'd hold it up. Yeah it's contracted but who's gonna enforce that contract? China will support North Korea the whole time they are towing the line and being a good little puppet state. The instant North Korea poses a threat to china's economy (which in declaring war on the US they would) they'll be on their own. The only reason International treaties and such are held is either to maintain dignity and trust between nations or to avoid sanctions from the UN/WTO/IMF etc. I don't know about you but I doubt people would exactly condemn and punish china for breaking a treaty protecting a state threatening to plunge the world into war.
Up to this point china has maintained friendly relations with NK solely to limit the crazy, as soon as that stops being a viable option lil' kimmy will be scrambling for his daddy's cockroach rocket before you know it. See The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact for past example. Not the exact same situation, but same basic concept.
tl;dr That contract isn't worth the paper it's written on.

No problem. I actually study politics and international relations so I actually have to think about this stuff all the time. As a result I feel obliged to share the knowledge on these issues, particularly to put peoples minds at ease when they're worried about WW3.

That is so false I can't even comprehend. Keep raising your self esteem by making ridiculous statements claiming USA could defeat China or even Russia for that matter individually. Gotta love big headed amerifats.

....And how exactly do you think they'd "call on the debt" without doing so militarily?
"Hello, US? Could you like, pay your bills plz?"
"Uhhh, now? No. We can't do that."
"But you have to. I'm calling on the debt. You totally have to."
"No, no I'm afraid it doesn't work like that."
"Shit, I thought there'd be a supernatural force that would just pull you."
#98 - anon (04/16/2013) [-]
Actually, if they failed to call on debt then China could/would send threats to declare war causing even more damage and money owed after China wipes USA off the map.
#103 - akkere (04/16/2013) [-]
China detaches from a major economic partner and enters a dreadful economic status where a number of the outsourced labor we have there gets unemployed from the business figureheads pulling out and having most of the products they export because of that labor disappearing from their balance sheets.
They wouldn't be able to summon up a force for war due to that, and starting a war over a debt that they could easily make in a decade from the contributions of consumerism in the US that causes the outsourced labor and optimal product exports is just plain irrational.
Not to mention if the UK and the EU decide to step in, especially if they'd be interested in having an even bigger stake on the US as an economic partner.
#89 - akkere (04/16/2013) [-]
Products would see a rise in price now that there's a sudden drop in outsourced labor and products and therefore drop in competition, but that slowly returns when business figureheads turn their attention to other second-world and third-world nations, like South America.
In the mean time more and more workers get employed to amend the issue of the lack of the products and industry gets fired up again.
Meanwhile China has a severe economic issue where the factories run empty and products aren't going anywhere, and no other nation would deliver the economic partnership like the US does with them.
#95 - akkere (04/16/2013) [-]
Your theory is just "The US collapses and everyone goes apeshit"
Mine's an actual breakdown of how the issues would be handled based on actual know-how of economic status and how our economy works. Just saying "Commies will totally beat Capitalists in this" doesn't quite make the same validity.
It's also hard for China to start a war if their economy hits as hard as it will without a partner, and Russia would hardly fit the bill because they don't have the level of consumerism the US does.

I didn't put backing to my theory because ti was just an example. I'm by no means an expert of economics, but I know a bit, and I'm saying you can't know for sure what would happen, only guess, no matter how likely or well backed your theories are.
I also am too sick to put much thought into a FJ argument, so my bad - genuinely sorry there.
