Wikileaks cables reveal China 'ready to abandon North Korea' | World news | The Guardian:
China has signalled its readiness to accept Korean reunification and is privately distancing itself from the North Korean regime, according to leaked US embassy cables that reveal senior Beijing figures regard their official ally as a "spoiled child".


Seeing the Norks disappear as a nation would be the best thing that could happen this year in the foreign policy field. Well, having the Iranian nuke facilities go up in an enormous radioactive cloud of smoke, yeah, but getting the psychopathic Dear Leader and his equally batshit kid away from the controls in Pyongyang would be a Cool Thing.
