The one piece of this picture that I really don’t understand is, why China is so lukewarm about…

NK has proven a hundredfold that they aren’t to be trusted or reigned in by the rules of outside nations

I believe it was Bill Clinton who was the first world leader to claim they had worked out a deal with North Korea to behave themselves, but no matter who the first was, we see that North Korea has no intention of honoring any deal even if they agree to one.

The time for softness has come and gone, and the only chance to keep this smaller is for China to do it, if America has to do it we will see a mess. I really hope we can get China to do it.
