A number of media outlets, including the Express newspaper, the Daily Caller news website and the Daily Star newspaper, have spread the report. For this once, they told us about alleged China’s threats to bomb North Korea.

According to the media, the Chinese Global Times newspaper reported that Beijing is concerned about the nuclear activities of North Korea that can jeopardize the northeastern part of China. Allegedly, the newspaper claimed that China is ready to respond with force if North Korea negatively impacts the country with its illicit nuclear activities.

All the media quoted the same words, which according to them, were published by the Global Times:

“China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China… If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back… By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks [on] DPRK nuclear facilities on its own. A strike to nuclear facilities of the DPRK is the best military means in the opinion of the outside world.”

But there is one little problem – Global Times has never published something like this. On April 7, an article with such statements was published on the official website of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the China Military. According to the website’s information, the article’s author is Jin Hao from the Global Time. However, we could not find any information about a person with this name, working for the newspaper. Later, the article was deleted from the China Military without any explanations by its editors. Now, the article can be found in the Google Global Cache (GGC) service as a snapshot of the page, dated by April 11.

However, the fact that the article was deleted and has never been published by the Global Times newspaper did not prevent mainstream media from using excerpts from the piece, claiming that China is ready to “bomb North Korea if it crosses Beijing’s ‘bottom line’.”

    China would never do something direct like that, more subtly like assassinating kim and replacing him with his nephew I think.

    • SPQR

      Don’t know that such an action would achieve much nor would it placate the US. The only way to solve this problem is by convincing the Norks to give their nukes. And short of a massive military campaign I don’t see that happening. This situation is a mess whichever way you look at it.

      • Thegr8rambino

        no country in their right mind would give up their nukes, it opens the door for bigger powers to invade you based on pure fantasy, with little to no hesitation

  • Only an idiot or a Trumpanzee aka Trump supporter would believe that China would do this…..

  • de^mol

    China would never attack NK. On the contrary. I think China is mostly worried about the US. What western media is writing just doesn’t make any sense. I am convinced the Chinese are watching carefully and very worried about what the US is going to do and will have some kind of plan. Maybe even invading NK to ensure the US can’t do the same.

    Nobody but US uses the bombing solution. The Chinese are a civilized nation, not stone age barbarians.

    • Layfon Alseif

      So civilized they need to remind their populace not to shit in plane aisles or changing rooms while abroad.

      • anonim

        I was talking about elites, and US elites are shitty, to say the least. No manners, no brains, never keeping their word. I a word: stone age barbarians who can barely put words together to form sentences.

        • Layfon Alseif

          From how hard you’re sucking China’s dick I’m going to assume you’re Chinese. So even if I pointed out some flaws of the Chinese ‘elite’ you’d ignore it. Also everyone knows it’s Japan>S.Korea>China in terms of who has the better people ; ^ )

      the chinese execute more people every year then all of the other countries combined.

      how many people ended up getting killed at tianamen square?

      unknown – not allowed to know. anywhere from 200 – 2000.

      did you know the chinese live in dog cages piled on top of each other in warehouses?

      oh yeah.. that’s civilized. hey also, the chinese sent 150,000 soldiers to the north korean / chinese border so they can help all those possible refugees right? oh no. oh no not to help them. to machine gun them when they try to cross the yula river. no, china will not be taking any refugees from the people who are 80 years behind the rest of the world.

      well here you can read about those civilized chinese here:

        Deplorable to say the least. Where do trolls like u hide? Your mom’s basement, or under some bridge with the rest of the zombie drug addicts? Either way, it’s fairly clear to see that you lack any exposure to the real world. And you are really going to use the daily-(pedophile protecting)-mail propaganda mouth piece?! as a valid source, on a forum like this one, to backup your racist idiotic beliefs? Seriously, were yoy traumatized as a child or something? How did a goof like you even find a site like this? The only rational answer is that u r a paid zionist troll. Most likely for mi6, with the daily pedophile links. Do the world a favour and clime up to the highest point of that bridge u live under, and simply jump off it! If u can believe the daily mail, surely u can believe u can fly!

      • sagbotgamot

        yeah… and the second biggest economy in the world. and these stone-age barbarians will overtake US economy in 2018 says Forbes. (https://www.forbes.com/sites/mikepatton/2016/04/29/global-economic-news-china-will-surpass-the-u-s-in-2018/#813f5f4224af)

        Isn’t the US the country with more inmates than China? Not percentage but absolute numbers, mind that!

        • Deplorable Tim jones

          1/3 of all of our prisoners are actually here from other countries, they’re not our people.

          then theres the fact we don’t actually execute our worst. we house them in a cage until they die of natural causes behind bars.

          while the trash of the world continues to come to our lands to kill, rape, and rob, we’re going to have to lock them up. their own countries don’t want them back, so they’re essentially stateless being housed in our prisons.

          fortunately our wall goes up soon and that’ll end.

          hopefully we’ll start killing off the murderers and rapists then our prisons will be for the only people who deserve to be in prison – thieves.

          • anonim

            You have capital punishment, you middle age monkeys! And yes, most of the inmates are innocent of foreign origin => genocide! You have a backward mentality, savage barbarians!

          • Deplorable Tim jones

            well we are barbarians, but not because we put the south american trash in jail.

            and for capital punishment, the US executed 20 people in all of 2016.

            if that’s barbarism to you, i’d suggest you not wonder about any other country on earth as we execute hardly any criminals compared to other nations like china, saudi arabia, on and on and on.

          • anonim

            You are barbarians because you don’t have identity in the first place. You are a bunch of criminals who committed genocide against the real Americans. You lousy pricks!

          • NCFisher

            And you hail from?

          • Deplorable Tim jones

            hahaha awesome!

            our identity has carved out all of known civilization.

            we’re barbarians because we allow our underclass to butcher their unborn, and neglect the children they do have when we should sterilize them like what was done long ago.

          • anonim

            An american can be black, white, yellow, red. You can also speak any language in use today. Your identity fits all globe population. The only history you have is how you murdered the real Americans after Christopher Columbus. That makes you BARBARIANS! Stone age barbarians! You only know to drop bombs: Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Yugoslavia. You never solved a single problem because you are retarded. All refugees coming from Syria, Libya and Iraq are consequences of your barbarity, barbarians!

        Deplorable Tim Jones, if you have have not been sleeping all these while you would have known that Tiananmen square massaccre is a lie fabricated by the west to demonize China. Go and google “Wikileaks US dipomatic cable confirm there was no Tiananmen massacre”. The number you just quoted came from Chai Ling, one of the student commanders, and her account was refuted by her own fellow student commanders.

        • Deplorable Tim jones

          wow.

          so the video of 1 guy standing in front of the line of tanks that everyone in the world saw – is not real?

          lemme guess – you’re in china?

    • Axekick

      Yeah, the Chinese are especially civilized with their forced organ harvesting. Stone age barbarians weren’t capable of the procedures.

  • BL

    The Zionist whore and controlled opposition shill Alex Jonestein was also reporting this fake news and rejoicing of “Trump’s victorious diplomacy” in persuading the Chinese to get on board against the North Koreans. Alex “Zionist whore” Jones was also demonizing the North Koreans and openly calling for their genocide saying “Who cares about a bunch of a starving peasants”. You could literally see the Zionist bloodlust in his eyes when he was openly calling for the genocide of an entire people. And this scum is praised as some sort of “opposition” to the “establishment”

    • Thegr8rambino

      he is being exposed slowly but surely for the fraud that he is

  • NeoLeo

    I’m not sure about China anymore – it looks like they made some sort of a deal with the devil, not just Xi and Trump suddenly acting like the best buddies, but also China refusing to support Syria in the UN, and don’t forget Davos where Xi pledge made a speech praising globalism.

    Rael news: the Chinese asked US to negotiate with North Korea: nukes for the annual military invasion attempts. The Nazis refused. Guess who are Nazi: those who committed genocide against reds, because they were an inferior race, and allowed blacks the honor to be their slaves.
