Odds and Ends

Economic sanctions never bothered the Party much. China have always made sure North Korea wont collapse. Almost anything to avoid a unified Korea to challenge them and no mass of poor North Koreans into Manchuria.
I think it's all mostly hyperbole anyway. There was never going to be much real trouble. China would never really challenge the USA and vice versa, certainly not over North Korea. The rest of the world don't want a war to disrupt the economy. Trump and Kim got to play big tough heroes for their propaganda. Kim also got bombs and a stronger economy as a bonus. Got to admit though, I'm still glad I don't live within bomb range of those paranoid Norks.
