If I were an Machiavellian Chinese criminal mastermind, I would provoke Kim to do something stupid, (like an artillery barrage on Seoul) then get a UN mandate to invade on the pretext of keeping the peace. I could then install a puppet regime on the back of a Chinese occupation, and get it recognised by most of the UN. The puppet regime would then call for re-unification to the Chinese motherland, on the basis of the treaty signed with the Qing dynasty in 1636. Bingo, an instant source of ultra-cheap labour for the Chinese economy.

Not sure if you'd get the UN mandate - but you never know.

I'm guessing the Chinese would just do it, and ask for approval later...maybe. (1950)
Who's going to stop them, this time around?
