CNN’s senior China analyst, Willy Lo-Lap Lam, has a fairly frightening piece out about China’s role in the Korean crisis. We’ve heard many hopeful calls for China to pressure the Koreans into disarmament. The upshot of the article, however, is that China believes that the United States is going to strike Korea shortly, and is wondering how to position itself before and during a possible war. No hint here of China using sanctions to bring the North Koreans to heel. Thanks to Randall Parker’s ParaPundit for this link.
