Actually there are many things China can do and stopping the shipment of food is one of them, albeit it will create chaos in the border. I'm not being hawkish by calling regime change in NK. I think China is entitle and has the responsibility to install, if she can, a more friendly and benign government in the North for every body's sake. Don't forget this crazy government can hold China hostage by threatening to bomb Beijing when the time come.
Actually the general are not crazy as I implied and I think they are using nukes to blackmail the US alliances. It's just the way the go about it is very irrational and scary. Frankly if they can give up nukes I think every body should help them, but can they be trusted. That's the point, they have been promised many times and then went back on their words. It seems like they have different people in charged at different time.
Last I heard they are have problems in harvesting on the SE and many deaths as the result.
In fact China is helping the US now in talking with NK but I'm skeptical about any long term solutions though. It just like the same talks over and over again for the past decade. (sign)
Probably not to threaten China but rather taking advantage of what i just quoted from the article. However i do share the concern you guys are having. I don't like the idea either of a nuclear power neighbor that goes threatening around if no food is going their way.
Despite the bellicose rhetoric by the US alliance I do not think they will bomb any nuclear sites. For SK it's too close for comfort. If there is any hint of such intentions, both China and Russia will definitely raise the strongest oppositions, especially the former.
By looking at the recent developments I just don't see any changes of hearts with this irrational bunch in the North. A peaceful or limited collateral damages regime change initiate by China is the only long term solution I can find.

It's very puzzling the way they treat their long term ally and benefactor.

The prime objective is to help DPRK develop into a self reliant country. It has to state very clear none of the parties has the intention to annihilate DPRK or RoK. The 6 parties need to pledge for these. Whether the 2 sides will unite or remain separated as 2 countries peacefully, it is up to the volitions of their respective government and people.

I agree with Fanling Monk that they won't go strike the launch site, it is just too close to China and SK. SK don't want nuclear dust to spread in their own country plus China and Russia won't stay quiet either.
After reading the yahoo article you would wonder what NK is thinking. The unfriendly attitude and the fishermen incident does seem like they are trying to tell us they won't be reasonable enough to listen what Beijing wants. NK knows too well how important it is to have their own nukes and use it to get what they want (food, oil, etc..)
China and Russia won't be able to convince them to give that up otherwise they would have dropped the development a long time ago. Even if they promise to stop they just restart the whole thing, can't trust these guys.
^ if DPRK insists playing rough overturning the table on everyone, then sorry, enough is enough! We have given DPRK more than a father could have given to his son. We have to prepare for the worst scenarios: influx of N Koreans by tens of thousand and the bombs that may go astray landing on the wrong side of the border!
China should and will act in it's own interests. Not American interests.
