If yes, good.
If no, cock up.
Indeed, While of course SK and the U.S. are in the inner sanctum of what is going on here, let's not forget the Japanese and other allies in the region. Perhaps I was wrong, but I thought that one of the longer term goals was if not to completely contain Chinese influence, then at least try to manage it through alliances both formal and informal. Others do look to the United States for leadership so I would hope they would not send the wrong signals of who can be trusted or not. Tough work to be sure.
