And so, like Poland, South Korea is going to point missiles at Chinese air space, not intentionally, but by necessity, to counter the missile build up of North Korea. To some degree, South Korea is right that the North Korean missile buildup needs to be countered. To some degree, its decision to deploy anti-missile systems that can also target Chinese missiles, as a side benefit, is opportunistic. But to take this opportunity is to also start a chain reaction that will lead, yes, to the destruction of North Korea, which its allies would not mind at all, but which will equally lead to the destruction of South Korea, which China did mind and would have done everything to prevent up to now, but perhaps, no longer. What has changed is that the destruction of South Korea by the North will have become not only acceptable, but desirable, if not necessary, for China's security. This encirclement of China forces China to align 100% with North Korea, which dramatically increases the insecurity of South Korea, far in excess of the security it gets from its anti-missile system. Because South Korea has traded a small loss for a much bigger loss, it can be said that North Korea has outplayed South Korea, and came out the winner.
Unfortunately for South Korea, it panicked too early, and gave up a winning hand for a losing one.
