So here we are.  We can't do anything to NK, cuz if we do, 20 million people in Seoul will die immediately.  China won't do anything either, although they could and should because they created this mess, cuz without China, NK rolls over and dies on their vine.

So in the interest of saving those 20 million souls in Seoul, when (not if) NK nukes the USA, we tell China that we will nuke Peking because its all their fault anyway.  And for good measure while we're at it, we nuke Moscow for getting Trump elected.  This way all those souls in Seoul will be safe and Truth, Justice and the American way will be preserved for the rest of eternity ...

ymmv ...

North Korean ships head home after China orders coal returned

By John Ruwitch and Meng Meng | SHANGHAI  11 April 2017  Commodities

A fleet of North Korean cargo ships is heading home to the port of Nampo, the majority of it fully laden, after China ordered its trading companies to return coal from the isolated country, shipping data shows.

Following repeated missile tests that drew international criticism, China banned all imports of North Korean coal on Feb. 26, cutting off the country's most important export product.

and for those who think that our coal industry is dead ... 

North Korea is a significant supplier of coal to China, especially of the type used for steel making, known as coking coal.  

To make up for the shortfall from North Korea, China has ramped up imports from the United States in an unexpected boon for U.S. President Donald Trump, who has declared he wants to revive his country's struggling coal sector.

Eikon data shows no U.S. coking coal was exported to China between late 2014 and 2016, but shipments soared to over 400,000 tonnes by late February.

I heard about that this morning on NPR, but I was distracted by driving so I didn't hear the details.

 China Increasing Troops On North Korean Border

  The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is on the alert as the situation on the Korean peninsula is showing signs of unforeseeable tension. As a result, 150,000 soldiers have gathered on the North Korean border near the Yalu and Tumen rivers since April 7

Ah the great nation of North Korea...
Some facts from my memory:
- There is strong evidence that there is only one case of obesitas in the country
- Children can play on the streets 
- Their leader is national champion in every sport he played
- The national internet does not need google
- Tourists get a free tour guide from the government
- Every hotel in North Korea has rooms available. Always.
- Shops are not there to actually buy something
- The country does not contribute to climate change

In the international political equivalent of an adolescent boy jacking off as a bizarre form of insult at an adult who has admonished him, North Korea fires some stuff into the sea.
