It's long been believed that KJU shot to the top because he was China's choice to take over when the dad died. He was known as a buffoon and suddenly he's his father's choice to run the country? China likes that he can be so easy to manipulate, rather than being a leader in his own right.
It's pretty obvious that North Korea is being used as a pawn against the USA. I can't think of a good reason WHY China is doing this.
Perhaps China is trying to force the USA to be nice to them.. or else they will unleash their nasty attack dog - North Korea.
China is a fairly unique country is that they have NO morals, and only do what is in their best interest. People forget that China has threatened to destroy the USA within the last 10 years. I tried researching this, but unfortunately the internet is so bogged down with bullshit (thanks alot moonbats) that research has become extremely difficult. Also, when doing research, the news of the day floods the hits.. making stories from years ago getting buried where they are nearly impossible to find.
I think China does not want to, nor will they ever force North Korea to behave. In fact, I think China will continue to do quite the opposite.
It's come to the point now that stopping North Korea is inevitable. Perhaps it is time to call China's veiled bluff, and attack North Korea. I would add that China has not fared well in history. They have enough trouble keeping control of their OWN people - which is why they can only survive with a communist dictatorship. I do know a bit about history. In particular, in WW2, tiny Japan dominated the Pacific region, and China was no match for them. Japan lacks real estate.. perhaps they would like to rule over the land of North Korea - perhaps as an ally of South Korea. Let's not forget about China's endless disputes with Taiwan and Tibet and Mongolia.
The question is.. would China really defend North Korea? I suspect the answer to that is... NO.
China is not stupid, nor are they crazy. They do what benefits themselves, and they have no "honor" nor morals. Just look at the way they treat their OWN people. They still have monuments of that monster Mao Tse Dung all over China.
One more point... The USA owes China $1.1 trillion. If China were to defend NK by attacking the USA.. the USA could simply tell China to forget about ever getting that $1.1 trillion back.
Meanwhile.. moonbats are flooding the news with 10 year old clips of Trump at Wrestlemania... or on the god given right for old men to go potty in the same room used by girls. (I'm not sure about this.. but I think in prisons, they stick trans people in with the men - or in solitary).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MT8W_nEcZI
