    Let's see how the Korean drama show end

    1. The following are excerpts from the 13 July 2017 AFP news report headlined China says upholds UN sanctions as North Korea trade rises | Daily Mail Online

    (Begin excerpts)
    China insisted Thursday it was upholding UN sanctions on North Korea despite a jump in its trade with the nuclear-armed nation that comes amid growing US calls for Beijing to rein in its neighbour....

    Despite Washington's calls for action, trade between China and its neighbour increased 10.5 percent to $2.5 billion in the first six months of the year compared to the same period last year, including a 29.1 percent jump in exports.

    But customs administration spokesman Huang Songping said Beijing was upholding the UN sanctions against the regime of Kim Jong-Un.

    "Simple accumulated data cannot be used as evidence to question China's severe attitude in carrying out UN Security Council resolutions," Huang told a news briefing.

    He pointed to a 13.2 percent drop in imports from North Korea in the same period as an example of the pressure, adding that there have been sharp decreases every month since March.

    "UN Security Council sanctions are not a total ban on shipments. Trade related to DPRK people's livelihood, especially those that reflect humanitarianism should not be influenced by the sanctions," Huang said.... (End excerpts)

    2. Together with its recent hitting back at repeated calls from the US to put more pressure on North Korea, China's increase in trade with the rogue state shows that it has finally decided to go all the way with the devil incarnate.

    Kim Jong-Un reportedly called North Korea a "military power of the East that cannot be touched by even the strongest enemy". We would wonder whether China takes Kim's boasting seriously. China's current friction with Vietnam is a mirror image of future Sino-Korean conflicts once nuclear-armed North Korea succeeds to subdue the South.

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col) had written in an op-ed published by CNN: "Our message must be clear: if you do business with Pyongyang, you will face the full wrath of the US economic sanctions regime." Let's see how the Korean drama show end. Will it be a comedy, a farce, a tragedy or a bloodbath? Will it end like a fairy tale with everybody living happily ever after?

    It'll probably go on like it has gone on for several decades.

    Lots of talk and not too much action.

    That's better than the alternative.

    Lil Kim is not going to want to give up his biggest bargaining chip.

    Are you kidding? Can the North Korean fatso use a few nuclear bombs as his "biggest bargaining chip" with Uncle Sam?

    Just imagine the outcome of the "catfight" if a cat uses its fangs as its "biggest bargaining chip" with a tiger!

    What do you suggest?

    Should we bomb them?

    How about Thursday, would that be good for you?

    No Americans, whether they were gun-wielding cowboys, would ask such a question before World War II. They would say, "If you want to shoot, shoot, don't talk!" America's dilemma over North Korea's nuclear programme shows that the era of US global domination has long gone with the wind of change.

    No wonder Kim Jong-Un has become more and more boastful, calling North Korea a "military power of the East that cannot be touched by even the strongest enemy".

    Perhaps we can get some inspiration from the following fable entitled 6. BELLING THE CAT (Aesop for Children, 1919)

    Bell Kim Jong-Un!

    In case you haven't noticed, N Korea has been talking trash for several decades.

    Not a new thing at all.

    Let's see whether you have a workable plan to help your government avert the North Korean nuclear missile crisis which could lead to World War III.

    Other netizens are welcome to contrbute their ideas.

    The best plan is to try and get China to convince them to behave.

    That hasn't worked real well, but there's no all-out war, either.

    Diplomacy is always the first resort.

    I think we all agree that Lil Kim is crazy.

    What we don't know is just HOW crazy...

    Let's see whether your diplomacy works. I am waiting for the "best plans" from at least three or four other netizens before I propose my "best plan".

    I agree.

    Let's see if our diplomacy works.

    Better to try peaceful methods first.
