U.S. expects China to lead on sanctions

"Top U.S. diplomats yesterday said they expected China to enforce sanctions unanimously passed by the U.N. Security Council to curtail North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons."

I have little faith in China; I don't trust them one bit. North Korea has always been on a leash of China's. I have not decided whether this last development (the nuclear "dud" test) was a case of China giving the DPRK a longer leash or whether the leash broke.

No matter; in either case, China is the "x" factor and they are neither friend or ally. What's bad for the U.S. is good for China.
