The tests will be undertaken, the source said, unless Washington holds talks with North Korea and abandons its policy of what Pyongyang sees as attempts at regime change. North Korea also reiterated its longstanding desire for the United States to sign a final peace agreement with it and establish diplomatic relations, he said. The North remains technically at war with both the United States and South Korea after the Korean war ended in 1953 with a truce. This is not how we work towards reunification.
*S. Korea Asks UN for Right to Inspect N. Korean Ships: One analyst said a resolution including Chapter 7, Article 42 would send a "strong signal" to North Korea that the world is becoming impatient with the North's nuclear program and "disregard for past resolutions." James Schoff of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington also said China would likely be reluctant to support such a measure.
"I think Beijing would see that as very dangerous, would probably provoke North Korea to conducting some further kind of provocation, and they’ve called on all sides to respond calmly," Schoff said. Schoff also said China would be worried that passing the resolution, not necessarily implementing it, may be enough to "set North Korea off." It would start a war and trust me North Korea has already been set off. They understand english and know how to read.
I am convinced I am not alone in thinking China believes the United States is more and more feeling threatened by North Korea's bellicose threats and that they can soon back it up. I believe they are stupid enough to attack the US with nuclear weapons.
So too China is seeing the same thing and her goal is to keep us away not to see us instigated to make a preemptive attack that would require China to get involved. It would throw off all China's plans to make her the number one power in the world.
In the end I don't care what they say. This is a confrontation long in the works. MacArthur was right wanting to go right through North Korea then China back than because it would eventually have to be done. There is a lot behind the scenes to be concerned with here and yes China is our banker but they are over stepping their boundaries. We owe them trillions but with Russia's cooperation we can come out on top here. I fully expect we would and in the end being victors we would cancel our debt to China!
