Most likely the US informed China that if Kim-shi* nuked the US, China wouldn't be getting paid! China stood up and took notice and summoned Kimshi* to China. It wasn't a birthday party.
China feeds NK army. without it, Kim turns into shi*. For its part China's people would have a real people's revolution if the US stopped paying China the money we owe them. China's leaders didn't want to die, either. China's leaders prefer getting paid more than they do feeding NK's army.
It is a mutually beneficial threesome. NK has most of the world's rare earth minerals which are controlled by China and mostly purchased by us. We all need each other.
What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
