"So try this bulletin line which has been a great frustration for the United States in the west for longtime is that China was worried about North Korea getting nukes shoal, but that was never Trump China's number one morning. China's number one light met was a sort of collapse of North Korean dictatorship and civil war in unrest. And then eventually kind of messy, chaotic, read affiliation of the Korean peninsula with American troops on shortest China's border. That was that Nightline. So essentially, China has been willing to live with the very badly behaved, very cruel and repressive North Korea as if you like it kind of Buffa stay to a giant prison camp between three million North Koreans, which China down to the ground. And so now seeing America tied up in knots, but no longer pushing China to impose the toughest sanctions on those Korean. That's pretty good news.

Something pretty close to containing China to blocking China's Roy's. And if it's that them could be in for a very, very, bumpy curious.

"To have to play out this isn't something small this is a big deal i think you saw big step one he brought it up to president putin first thing to say look we know you did this and i think now we see where it goes from there but i think the first thing was face to face acknowledging the fact that we knew that they meddled and face to face lew looking them in the eye and saying don't do it again let me ask you about north korea you said this week that pyonyang was quoted quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution what does that mean exactly you know i mean how many tests does it take and how many more times do we have to tell them no no escalation the fact that they launched a icbm test is hugely dangerous not just for us but i so many of our friends in the world and we've got to put a stop to it and so what we wanted to tell north korea's look we have told you we're not looking for his name change we are not looking for war but don't give us a reason to get involved in any of this and so we're going to go ahead and push for a strong resolution against north korea i think it will be very telling based on how other countries respond whether they want to hold kim jongun hand through this process or whether they want to be on the side of so many countries who know that this is a dangerous person with the access to an icbm and we don't want that to happen so we're gonna fight hard on this we're going to push our not just on north korea we're going to push hard on other countries who are not abiding by the resolutions and not abiding by the sanctions against north korea and we're going to push hard against china because ninety percent of the trade that happened to north korea is from china and so while they has been help four they need to do more as china let america down in their uh work on north korea that the president put trust in them on i i think that they actually followed through on the things that we ask them.
"pyonyang" Discussed on KBOI 670AM
"Will prevent that war from happening what you have to do is get a little bit farther away from the americans now not that that beijing would do this but i think that the be inherent closeness between china and be a and and south korea between beijing and seoul on working with north korea is something that can crop up at a moment of crisis like this because right now if you stand outside and look at it it is pyongyang and washington at least threatening to begin to go toetotoe i don't think pyonyang will ever will ever go there but what they're going to try to do is get us to back down on in china it's going to feed on the fears of south korea that they're getting sucked into something that by accident could spiral out of control let's talk about a counterfactual that use speculate about in your atlantic teas that is the idea that the us and south korean no longer have a strong military alliance that is that the us withdraws a a considerable part if not all of its military forces you've reference them already from the korean peninsula that is that the us washes its hands and says this is not for us to get involved were not existential threatened by north korea it's a gangster state it's your problem with that at this point the worse or better than this standoff we have with a nuclear north korea uh john the answer i think is yes it would be worse and it would be better at the reason being that we have no good solution to north korean i don't mean just a a process oriented diplomatic negotiating solution we have no excess dential solution to north korea right now at one level well i think of the quit and it's.
