#1 By most accounts, post-Cold War/Y2000 China still adheres to the Cold War practice of not allowing vassal or proxy states to dev, have, or control their own indigenous or outside NucWeaps + Nuclear Forces. Ditto as per Advanced Military, Space Rockets + any Techs, Sys that has real andor potential military application.
As China is a major member of the so-called "Nuclear Club", a Military-Nuclear Power, + UNSC itself, WHAT DOES THE UN HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH BY PASSING A STRONGER-WORDED RESOLUTION THAT IT KNOWS WON'T ACHIEVE ANYTHING.
To stop the DPRK the UN has to stop China.

#3 FREE BEACON > NOT-SO-STRANGE-BEDFELLOWS:CHINESE MISSLE TECHNICIANS SPOTTED N EGYPT WORKING WID NORTH KOREANS TO UPGRADE [Egypt's] SCUDS.
Prolly safe to say "+ Other" as well.
* FREEREPUBLIC > THE FEWER, THE PROUD, THE MARINES - BUDGET CUTS TOLL.
Read to indirectly understand why the Fed should never be allowed to take away our Guns.
AFAIK the USDOD is still planning to downsize the Ground Forces - US Marines + US Army - to force levels circa 550,000 for BOTH SERVICES - iff one presumes that roughly 100,000 < 200,000 are eligible Females as per all MOS'es, AMERIKA'S LATENT INABILITY TO MEET ITS OVERSEAS COMMITMENTS, ESPEC IN CASES OF WAR OR MILITARY CRISIS, BECOMES HORRIBLY APPARENT.
Moreso because Amerika will also no longer be able to mobilize or fight a major War(s) because its heavy industries are all gone andor controlled by foreign Govts-Companies. SHORT OF NATIONALIZATION, THE US GOVT. WILL NEED THE FORMAL CONSENT OF THESE FOREIGN GOVTS-COMPANIES TO USE THEIR ASSETS + RESOURCES FOR THE DEFENSE + OPERAT OF US NATIONAL SECURITY.
* FREEREPUBLIC > [Wash Times] INSIDE THE RING: NEW AL-QAEDA THREAT. Coming new "Lone-Wolf" + Group TerrOps or TerrStrikes agz CONUS.
ALso includs FRANCE + DENMARK + EURO-STATES, + basically any Regional, International target deemed worthwhile to kaboom by AQ = the Hard/Bad Boyz.
FEAR NOTTETH, AMERIKA, 'TIS MORE PROOF POSITIVE THAT MAINSTREAM AMERIKANS DON'T NEED PRIVATE GUN OWNERSHIP IN LIEU OF A FED-LOCAL GOVT = POLITBURO? THAT ROUTINELY FAILS TO ADEQUATELY FUND BASIC OR EFFECTIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT + FIRST RESPONSE SERVICES, + DAT WHOLE "BORDER SECURITY" THINGY + OTHER.
[WAYNE'S WORLD "THUMBS UP" here].
