not nice words for Un from one China news source here is one I posted on a other thread but worth re-posting- link
The situation in the Asia-Pacific has been quite tense as of late. On the one side, North Korea is an historical ally of China; yet on the other hand, given the tactless vagaries the hermit nation specialises in, it may also turn into a liability. The asset North Korea represents to China is chiefly strategic: A buffer state warding off any American hegemony in the Asia-Pacific. But then again who wants to engage in an armed conflict against the U.S. on China’s doorstep? Only Kim Jong-un – as far as we know, that is.
and then this from an other link in the link above
Mozambican air of tension in the Korean peninsula
Key to the solution of the situation on the Korean peninsula, responsible attitude is not made use of, the chestnuts out of, but builders ' attitude of the parties involved in the cause of peace. China will not sit idly by the DPRK insists on sliding into the abyss of war.
that was from here www.microsofttranslator.com...
XI Jinping on Sunday when China delivered a speech at a business forum, ally North Korea issue the implicit condemnation of China. Dozens of countries from Asia, Africa and Europe attending the Boao Forum for Asia.
"No messing one up for yourself and the world," XI said, he did not name specific countries point out. "Countries, big or small, strong or weak, rich or poor, should be the defender and promoter of peace. ”
These statements imply China North Korea's belligerence and several weeks of clamour growing tired of the war. At the same time, United States military officials told Reuters (Reuters) said, given the tensions between North Korea, the United States decided to postpone next week's missile test, "to avoid any misunderstanding or misjudgment."
wonder what they will say come the 10th, wonder if they have the same response.
There Is No Point Sending a Special Envoy to N.Korea
Rep. Moon Hee-sang of main opposition Democratic United Party on Friday proposed on dispatching a special envoy to North Korea to attempt to defuse mounting tensions. Moon recommended former U.S. president Bill Clinton and DUP lawmakers Park Jie-won or Moon Sung-keun as possible candidates. Even a small minority in the ruling Saenuri Party backed the proposal.
But one thing that is clear is that North Korea is solely responsible for the "crisis" that has gripped the Korean Peninsula. It has mounted one provocation after another, starting with the launch of a long-range rocket, followed by a nuclear test and daily threats of a nuclear attack.
It is a standard tactic for a regime that cannot survive without outside help to try and grab the attention of the international community by any means possible. But the tactic is liable to produce diminishing returns and requires constant raising of the stakes. Pyongyang is now trying to scare South Korean workers out of the inter-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex and has warned foreign diplomatic missions to evacuate by Wednesday.
By now South Korea, the U.S., China, Japan and Russia all know what Pyongyang is aiming for. It offered "assistance" for diplomatic missions in evacuating their personnel out of Pyongyang, but the U.K. dismissed it as "rhetoric" and the Russian and Brazilian embassies said there are no signs of an impending emergency.

sounds like a trap...
CHINA will never allow the USA to gain control of the Korean peninsula. China do not want the USA on their border so close to its main cities.
China will never let NKOREA go, it might conduct a coup and replace the leader but it wont let the us destroy/take over.
