More blustering on the part of Japan and the US considering China and Russia, while supplying oil to North Korea to keep Koreans warm during the cold winter months, would not allow for an overt attack on North Korea. Western news sources again demonstrate culpability by reporting that Russia and China have been “violating UN-imposed economic sanctions against North Korea”. There are agreements decided on at the UN that allow for essential goods to arrive in North Korea to reduce suffering. Imagine the animosity and hatred against the Japanese developing when North Koreans hear of news like this?
