China and the United States seem to be closer than Russia and our country these days based on all the news being filtered through our media. One thing is for sure, China just sent a strong message to North Korea and I think they will listen.
Beijing warned it would attack North Korea’s nuclear facilities if they crossed China’s bottom line. This warning was laid out in an editorial titled “The United States Must Not Choose a Wrong Direction to Break the DPRK Nuclear Deadlock on Wednesday.”
Had a very good call last night with the President of China concerning the menace of North Korea.

This quick turnaround by China doesn’t have anything to do with China-U.S. trade talks last week, does it? Did President Trump just negotiate this behind the scenes?
North Korea’s President Kim Jong-un has been strutting and talking up his game thinking he had China’s support against the United States if anything were to ever go sideways. But this strongly-worded editorial from China’s main daily newspaper run by the military was enough to see that’s not the case.

The editorial in the military-focused Global Times tabloid, owned and operated by the Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper, said that North Korea’s nuclear activities must not jeopardize northeastern China, and that if the North impacts China with its illicit nuclear tests through either “nuclear leakage or pollution”, then China will respond with force.
“China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China… If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back. By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own.”
This, as the editorial puts it, is the “bottom line” for China; should it be crossed China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back,” warned the editorial.
Maybe Kim Jong-un should sit back and relax and enjoy his 1960s country. Oh you didn’t know? North Korea doesn’t get any help from the United States like South Korea so it seems a lot of their real estate looks like a blast from the past in the way of technology, cars, and etc.
North Korea should be working on a peace agreement with South Korea rather than threatening us with nukes because it seems the protection they had at their back just walked away.
What do you think of China’s warning to North Korea? Is this a result of a meeting with Trump and working out trade agreements? Share your comments below and add this to your Twitter/Facebook timeline.
