Does N Korea act on behalf of China?
South Korea and the US may raise their state of readiness against the military threat posed by North Korea to the second-highest level in response to the sinking of the patrol vessel Cheonan.
Level one, the most serious condition of the five-level scale known as WatchCon, has not been in force since the end of the Korean war in 1953. Level two was last reached when North Korea conducted a nuclear test in 2009.
China and the United States have been down a rocky road together over the past two decades with respect to China's missile technology transfers to Iran. Today, China's ongoing contributions to the buildup of Iran's missile forces warrant closer scrutiny
Pyongyang, May 8 (KCNA) -- Hu Jintao, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and president of the People's Republic of China, made the following speech at a banquet:
You, Comrade Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, have visited China with the friendly feelings of the Korean party, government and people toward their Chinese counterparts in this beautiful spring season.
I, on behalf of the party, government and all the people of China, warmly welcome your visit to China.
N Korea --- got military support from China against the US during the Korean police action
China tied the hands of the US by threats of a veto at the security council -- The US will not use force to inspect N Korean ships
China is building a nuclear power plant with the Russians in Iran -- China buys a lot of oil from Iran
China and Russia have been holding war games and started the SCO as the primary partners
Iran and N Korea are allies --- tying them to both Russia and China in an indirect manner
Seems like US wishes that China will punish control or constrain N Korea are fantasy land hopes
Does N Korea act on behalf of China --- if so wouldn't it be logical to assume that is the stick China uses to poke the US with when it gets uppity with their chief creditor ?

I believe China is in the wonderful position of having the DPRK as a thorn in the side of the West. China can appear more neutral.

I don't think China is that ignorant, they want the money the U.S. owes them too much
NK is more like the little fat boy in the 3rd grade that comes from a dysfunctional family. The only way he can get attention is to act up.
