  • “China is aware they must act,” Haley said, urging Japan and South Korea to increase pressure and calling for an international solution.
  • “I am very disappointed in China,” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
  • Some experts believe Beijing is increasingly worried Trump might launch military action against North Korea.
  • The test prompted the lastest Trump Twitter assault on China.
  • On Saturday, US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, accused China and Russia of bearing a “unique and special responsibility” for the growing North Korean threat.
  • General Macarthur had planes on the runway at Guam loaded with nuclear weapons, primed to bomb and set fire to a 50mile wide strip on the North Korean border with China.
  • The only conclusion I can reach is that China should annexe North Korea and decapitate the Kim regime, destroy the nuclear arsenal and invest in rebuilding the infrastructure to avoid mass migration and famine.
  • It's North Korea constantly making threats towards the US and its allies, firing missiles towards Japan, sinking South Korean naval vessels, etc.

  • China has manipulated this situation to its advantage for decades, with an unstable military dictatorship threatening to giant regional competitors (South Korea and Japan).
  • The Korean War 1950-1953 was not a war of Communist Aggression as the Americans frame it.
  • The Kims have seen the recent history of Iraq and Libya and must surely glean the lesson: give up your nuclear weapons programme and your regime does not survive.
  • I mean diplomacy, not weapons of war minus the shooting, aka sanctions, as were just levelled, insanely, against Russia, to punish Trump.
  • US troops, and those of 13 other nations under United Nations resolutions, fought to protect South Korea from the North Korean invaders.
