That is also what India neighbors are saying when they get closer to China.

BTW Contrary to what many are saying "North Korea" is behaving just like herself as usual and USA and South Korea in conducting a joint exercise next to the border is view by them predictably as a THREAT and they are merely responding as predicted.

China is a merely spectator and was told to participate. China unlike India is NOT SO STUPID. That is the difference and that is why the Rupee is declining. The Indian never learn! Wherever they may be whether in ASEAN or Australia. learn to MYOB!

The North Koreans can't be trusted-even by China. North Korea test nuclear weapons-on the Chinese border. The radiation drifts over China. The North Koreans produce meth and other drugs-and sell them in China for hard currency. It should surprise no one that they seize Chinese fishing boats.

The real story is what the North Koreans do to them selves. There are some disturbing consistences conversing the death of the Dear Leader. Before his death he had a radical plan to completely reform the North Korean government and economy with Chinese style reforms. Elements in the North Korean government killed him before he could announce his plan.
Many party members and the military are getting rich off the "shadow economy" in North Korea. The elements killed the Great Leader.
I heard of this from a Portuguese national that has very close ties to the government in North Korea. He even bragged about stealing an American journalist memory card from his camera in North Korea and driving him around before his plane left accusing him of being a spy. The sick thing is that he supports the plot against the Dear Leader because in his eyes the reforms would have destroyed "the path to communism".
I hope the truth comes out.

The funniest part is that China will be left holding the bag for subsidizing the failed DPRK regime until it finally dies! The fellow communist dictators are joined at the hip!

HA HA HA!
