USA vs North Korea - Page 4
Well, it looks as if my first assessment was correct after all.
I got word that China secretly cut off North Korea's oil supply for "a few days", and summoned their foreign minister to Bejing for a quiet talk.
To put a little perspective on the matter, North Korea gets 80% of their oil from China.
I don't know what the little runt was told, but I suspect that it was something like "you can be replaced".
There are also "rumors" that the actions of the US in Iraq also made an impression on him. The one thing people like that understand is force.
The US proved to him that if he wants to "take it to the wall", we can, and are perfectly willing to do so. That will do more to calm him down than any amount of bribery and appeasement could have.
