    I doubt that. There is a philosophy in ancient China about how an emperor/overlord should rule his subjects. You don't want your subjects to be united in one group, meaning that once they align themselves together, you will lose your purpose as a leader as they can make up their own mind since their goals are in line with each other. You, as a leader, will slowly lose your influence and power. You, as a leader, want your subjects to be in different groups so that they'll need you to make the final decision and need you to be the mediator. So long as they fight each other, they will try to align with you. The same can be said of Korea. Once Korea is unified, they won't need anyone, China or the US, to help them mediate. They'll have their own goals and objectives. They won't reply on anyone else like how SK needs the US and NK needs China.

    That was the plan of Mao. As whether it worked as planned, I leave that to you to decide...

    sorry i don`t understand English

    我是看了国内的翻译才找过来的

    个人认为……
    打朝鲜战争的另一个原因:
    中国建国后(1949-?)仅有的那点重工业基础基本是日本留在东北的。
    在东北哦~
    离朝鲜真的不远``
    这点工业力量可以说是中国人的百年梦想。
    任何一个国家领袖是不能随便的去让其他国家,
    尤其是意识形态对立的、足够强大的潜在敌对国……
    离自己的工业生产区太近的。
    甚至于在那个年代,对于放弃了日本的赔偿金的中国,保留下这些重工业力量比解放台湾还要重要的多。
    一但东北的重工业被毁掉,中国要重建这些基本成套的工业设施需要很长的时间。
    而作为一个国家政权,如果不能对抗这种威胁,统一中国刚刚建立的政治威信也会毁于一旦。中国政府必须清楚的告诉中国人:我可以抵御任何国家的威胁。
    对于一个被外国人欺负了1个世纪才重新统一的中国,老百姓最大的愿望就是不在被“洋人”欺负。
    哪怕是潜在的威胁。
    是这种希望不被奴役的意志加上一个可以在战争中发挥最高效率的集权政府,使中国可以在朝鲜战争中取得了这种战果。
    麦克阿瑟的“到鸭绿江边撒尿”“圣诞节回家”撞到了中国人的枪口上了。



    这是一个普通中国人的个人想法
