    China Warns of ‘Storm Clouds Gathering’ in U.S.-North Korea Standoff

    HONG KONG — China warned on Friday that tensions on the Korean Peninsula could spin out of control, as North Korea said it could test a nuclear weapon at any time and a United States naval group neared the peninsula — an American effort to sow doubt in Pyongyang over how President Trump might respond.

    “The United States and South Korea and North Korea are engaging in tit for tat, with swords drawn and bows bent, and there have been storm clouds gathering,China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, said in Beijing, according to Xinhua, the state news agency.

    “If they let war break out on the peninsula, they must shoulder that historical culpability and pay the corresponding price for this,” Mr. Wang said.

    The comments were unusually blunt from China, which has been trying to steer between the Trump administration’s demands for it to do more to stop North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and its longstanding reluctance to risk a rupture with the North. The remarks also reflected, American experts said, an effort by the Chinese to throw responsibility for what happens back on Washington, after Mr. Trump declared, in several Twitter messages, that it was up to the Chinese to contain their neighbor and sometime partner.

    In a telephone conversation with Mr. Trump on Wednesday, China’s president, Xi Jinping, also called for restraint. But behind the scenes, officials said, Mr. Trump and Mr. Xi had reached some preliminary understandings, during their meeting at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort a week ago, about what the Chinese might do to change the behavior of the North’s leader, Kim Jung-un.

    According to officials who have seen notes of the conversations, the Chinese have agreed to crack down on their second-tier banks that have helped finance the North’s trade. But it is unclear what that crackdown would look like: While much has been made by Mr. Trump about North Korean “boats” of coal that have been turned away by China, the most recent statistics show a significant increase in overall trade between the two countries....

    Let them warn all they want.

    You may feel the need to cower before the mighty China but real Americans do not.

    they had better leave Trump alone while he's on vacation time at his swanky resort. He might drop the "mother of all bombs" on them. I mean, that's our foreign policy now isn't it?

    Its a continuation of Obama's policy.

    Doesn't Obama hold the record for the most drone strikes now?

    If assuring our allies' security means war, let it come. But let us not bumble into it. We should be mobilizing our forces if the threat is real.

    These vague threats and feints from Trump will either be an embarrassing, empty bluff or a blunder into unprepared military action.
