China to Trump: stop with the "emotional venting" on Twitter

US military options against North Korea come at a price

But their greater fear is that North Korea's government could collapse, sending millions of refugees fleeing across the border and effectively handing power over the peninsula to South Korea, which in turn means putting a US ally on China's border.

Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said in a statement China must decide if it is willing to back imposing stronger U.N. sanctions on North Korea over Friday night's long-range missile test, the North's second this month.

While all war game scenarios show the United States winning a military confrontation, that victory could come at the cost of hundreds of thousands of deaths, mostly in South Korea where millions of innocent people - and almost 30,000 U.S. troops - are already in range of North Korea's current missile capabilities. Beijing does have leverage over Pyongyang and could help get North Korea to the negotiating table.

The administration has said North Korea must send a "tangible signal" that it will abandon its nuclear program before talks even begin.

Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday after the missile test that he was "very disappointed" in China and that Beijing profits from USA trade but had done "nothing" for the United States with regards to North Korea, something he would not allow to continue. Chinese trade with North Korea actually increased 37.4 percent in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2016. "If thousands die, they're going to die over there, they're not going to die here and (President Donald Trump) told me that to my face".

"However, to realize these goals, Beijing needs a more cooperative partner in the White House, not one who piles blame on China for the United States' failures", it added.




North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continues to test missiles, and that is testing the global community.

But China can't solve the nuclear crisis on its own.

Schumer's request comes amid increasing United States concerns about the threat of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

Though considered by many to be the worst case scenario, the plan described by Graham illustrates a harsh reality surrounding using military force against North Korea. Further sanctions on the regime are expected from Washington.

If Trump doesn't act, it will be another sign to the North Koreans that they can do as they please with no consequences. "They aren't related. They should not be discussed together", Qian said.
