From the Vancouver Sun:

North Korea is using China as a transit route as it attempts to dodge international sanctions on its trade in arms and nuclear technology, according to reports in South Korea.

Wow.  Not to say China is omnipotent, but it would seem to go without saying that at a national level, they have knowledge of the situation and therefore, that they condone what the North is doing.

Want more?

North Korea has changed the names of some of its weapons trading companies and is sending shipments through China using forged invoices in order to evade sanctions ordered by the United Nations Security Council.

Again, this brings into question all sorts of issues regarding China’s true position and motivation.  As was said yesterday, want to be a player, China? Then start playing.
