The North Korean situation-2

Now the West and its allies are thinking about putting more sanctions on the North Korean regime and I don’t believe it will make any difference. The Russians and the Chinese will surely reject this outright and the biggest hindrance is China with whom the North Korean have 90 percent of the trade. China fears that if North Korea regime falls, it will have to deal with hundreds and thousands of North Korean on its border and it will have to divert more armed forces to that border. Other thing is that unification with the South Korea will make a more powerful neighbor who will have the backing of the U.S. In these circumstances, it is not surprising that China is clearly helping the North Korean with the parts and knowhow needed to build the nuclear technology as a nation supposedly on the brink of starvation cannot do it alone and still be belligerent about its ambition to strike the U.S. And now the latest is that North Korea has launched a missile capable of reaching some major cities of the U.S. and I don’t see any urgency on the part of the Western world to do anything about but to condemn such action and show some concern. I don’t see any concern that the threat of North Korean nuclear and missile program is as great as that of Iranian threat. It is time now to put pressure on the Chinese to curtail their support of the North Korean regime as the cost of not doing anything and only condemning each time is not working.
