Exclusive: China firm boasts about missile-linked North Korea sale: envoys

(Reuters) - A Chinese firm that intelligence agencies believe provided North Korea with the body of an off-road transport vehicle used to carry missiles appears to have a press release on its website that boasts about the sale, U.N. diplomats told Reuters.
Washington suspects that the Chinese firm, Hubei Sanjiang Space Wanshan Special Vehicle Co., did not sell North Korea an entire vehicle, but a chassis, and may have believed it was for civilian purposes, suggesting the company did not intentionally flout U.N. sanctions, a U.S. official said.
The official also said the firm likely made the sale to a front company that was used to mask the buyer's true identity. The company denies having trade links to North Korea.
U.N. diplomats in New York said that some U.N. delegations are also aware of the case and are looking into whether Hubei Sanjiang might have violated the U.N. ban on selling North Korea technology that can support its ballistic missile program.

Doesn’t take much to help NK’s military with their entire economy centered around it.
Selling the NK’s tree bark helps by allowing the shifting of real food to the troops.
.....and we've just learned that Obama Motors has announced that Cadillacs will now be built in China.
The assaults on the economy and security of the American public are now coming from never-sleeping interlocking enemies i.e. Obama(D.,Detroit) to China to North Korea.......all accompanied, of course, by fake outrage.
Any rumor of those two scoundrels, Beijing and Pyongyang, somehow “coming apart” and having a “parting of the ways” is just that: theory. In fact, they seemed more joined at the hip as I have ever seen them. Now DPRK is pressing China to house arrest Kim Jong Nan and have him sent to Pyongyang, where he will certainly be put before a firing squad within hours upon arriving by aircraft from Beijing, handcuffed by the Red Chinks. This is very worrisome. I imagine they want Pyongyang to attack the South so at the same time Beijing can claim their own prize, Taiwan, and also move upon all disputed archipelagoes in the South China Sea. What’s Obongo going to do about it?? Once a Communist, ALWAYS A COMMUNIST. There is no gradation. PRC leadership is firmly behind Kim Jong Un and the Korean Peoples Army.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again
Things change, attitudes change, politics change — and over time, its much more likely a Korean nuke will go off in Beijing rather than Los Angeles. China really should be more careful how it deals with the NORKS.
