According to South Korea's Chosun Ilbo, U.S. recon satellites have photographed around 30 illegal transactions involving Chinese vessels selling oil to North Korea on the West Sea in October. The images allegedly showed large Chinese and North Korean ships transacting in oil in a part of the West Sea closer to China than South Korea. The satellite pictures even showed the names of the ships.
China being made out to be the "new enemy" is an idiotic statement, they already ARE the enemy. We're just engaged in the trade dance, otherwise, we ideologically oppose each other in terms of power, 'cept the chinese have none, yet.

This doesn't make sense. Why wouldn't China simply truck it across the border or even use a pipeline?
Sounds like China is being made out to be the new enemy; rhetoric and propaganda will be hyped to start a new war.

Perhaps the pipeline is being monitored and the tankers are just some cheap longshot effort to push oil through.
Cheap and China go hand in hand.
