Beijing reveals its true colors

One of the widely believed myths here in the Washington area is the notion that Communist China is growing tired of the antics from its North Korean ally.  Usually, its based on diplomatic boilerplate from Communist mouthpieces badly misinterpreted by analysts who should know better.

However, some of it may have been based on the words of Li Bin, the Communists' Ambassador to South Korea for four years.  Li was apparently whispering information to his hosts in order "to adversely impact the long-term relationship between China and North Korea."

Before anyone get their hopes up, the cadres arrested Li this week.  Something to keep in mind when one hears about the cadres growing "tired" of North Korea, or for that matter, their other nuclearly-inclined ally - Iran.
