    geopolitical jostling around between China, Japan, and the US, etc. is over and China decides having a buffer country isn't worth the ugly.
    Then they'll start a process of "economic reform" and begin an era of "openness" (one way).
    The only wild card scenario would be if the internal misery gets so bad that a "tipping point" is reached with the military and they stage a coup and petition the US, etc. for help.

      but I don't think they'd ask the U.S. for help. Vietnam or Cambodia would be my hunch.
