"China on Tuesday ruled out applying economic or political sanctions to pressure North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program, appearing to undercut a crucial element of the Bush administration's evolving North Korea strategy. The announcement comes just as American intelligence agencies are trying to determine whether North Korea is preparing for a nuclear test."
Well, WHY WOULD THEY?
Why does Bush not understand that people won't do something just because he wants them to? It has to be in THIER best interests, not his. How is sanctioning North Korea in China's best interest?
