“Under no circumstance should there be the use of force or the threat of use of force” in implementing the sanctions in Resolution 1874, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yesui said in New York. Inspecting vessels carrying North Korean cargo is “complicated” and “sensitive,” he said.

The Security Council voted 15 to O to punish North Korea for its May nuclear-bomb test and missile launches. The resolution authorizes stepped-up inspection of air or sea cargoes suspected of being destined for the development of nuclear arms or ballistic missiles. The measure also calls for new restrictions on loans and money transfers to North Korea.

if no force or threat of force is used, how does China expect ships to be inspected for nuclear material's.

They are not going to cooperate in this (N.K.)

It's not long until China & Russia start backing their other buddy Iran the same way.

We now have to listen to the opinions of other countries before acting, and act accordingly to the ones who hold our debts for us.

A sad day for America.

Makes you wonder just what China stands to gain from taking this attitude and extending this "helping hand" to North Korea ?

What China stands to gain by this stipulation is the same thing everyone in the region has to gain -

The removal of one potential justification for things deteriorating into a shooting war very quickly.

Face it: if force is used to search the ships, it will absolutely result in retaliation, more than likely retaliation wildly disproportionate to the force applied in a search.

They are probably going to profit off of this heavily but in one sense what they are doing is smart because they are trying to keep the whole area from exploding. If we do go in at NK it is going to set that whole area off like the Fourth of July and South Korea won't be the only country they attack in return. Something tells me they think North Korean may very well detonate a nuke as an act of aggression.

It constantly amazes me how far people are sucked in to the American propaganda.

North Korea saw what happened to Iraq - it had no nukes, it tried to comply, it basically disarmed - then it was invaded.

They are not going to be so stupid as to disarm and allow America to waltz in and conquer the place without a proper stand up fight. North Korea deserves to be left alone - that is ALL that is is doing by pursuing a nuclear deterrent.

Who in their right mind thinks that NK a tiny and poor country is any threat to America? It is purely media propaganda and hype that is making them out to be some kind of threat.

Your assertion that you have to listen to China because it holds your debt - that is reverse thinking if ever I heard it - that is like the tail wagging the dog. The Chinese are holding $US trillions of paper that the US can debase the value of whenever they feel like it. China stands to lose trillions - and America gets to wipe out its debt at the same time - who is holding who to ransom here?

That is the only reason that China did not use its veto to stop the sanctions - simply because it has too much to lose - so it is being coerced by the US to comply with its policy of harassment against NK.

Kim Jong Il has no reasonable alternative but to talk tough. If he doesn't set out the conditions which he considers acts of war - then America can keep infringing, and forcing a retaliation which it will then claim is justification for attack.

North Korea is no threat - it never was - it should be left alone to mind its own business. Who has the right to tell countries they can't arm themselves with nukes for defense? The countries that already have nukes, and want to maintain the upper hand - that's who.

America is an aggressive, violent, imperialist nation (because its owners, the Bilderbums want to use it to pave the way for the NWO) - any other small nation who wants to keep out the central banks, and keep their government clear of the Bilderbum's needs nukes and a strong military deterrent. They also cannot afford to be truly democratic - because democracy is easily corrupted by bribes and use of public media - as clearly seen in all Western democracies, which have become a joke in terms of personal liberties.

You should open your eyes and see that the threat to America is within it, it is the owners of the Federal Reserve, and the central banks who are the threat to human freedom - not some poor country like North Korea or Iran.

It's not about having anything to gain, China is generally on the losing end of deals backing NK.

NK receives a huge chunk of it's food goods from China; without it, millions of people would starve to death. In return, NK supplies China mainly with locally mined minerals which they have little use for having little industrial infrastructure.

Have to remember that it's NK's government that deserves punishment, not the people living under it's tyranny.
