Heavy Move: US Threatens China for Trading with North Korea After Missile Test


The US has threatened to take action against North Korea after Pyongyang test-fired a new missile in violation of UN sanctions. The statement came from Washington's ambassador to the UN, during a session of the Security Council.



Washington has double standards when it comes to provocation. Furthermore, 'the problem' with the US acting militarily (on a relatively large scale) against North Korea is that the South Korean capital will be destroyed in the process and there is not much that could be done to stop this - apart from massively striking North Korea with nuclear bombs (along the border).

The solution to countering North Korea, from a Western point of view, would be for China to attack North Korea, have China 'make' the North Koreans dismantle their missile and nuke programs via diplomacy or the instigation of a coup, or develop good relations and trading ties with the North that would slowly lead to peace on the Peninsula.

The overriding factor in what is happening is that the Trump Administration wants to place sanctions or tariffs on China in order to return industry to US shores. The US will blame anything that North Korea does on China. If China cannot fix the problem (which is highly likely) then trading ties with the US will be damaged (intentionally). This would help the US on many levels and severely hurt the Chinese.
