China remains passive as Korean standoff escalates | McClatchy

Although the North and South have long traded threats, tensions on the Korean Peninsula now are at the highest levels in decades.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency Friday reported that North Korea had added 100 multiple-launch rockets to its arsenal of some 5,200 capable of hitting the South Korean capital. The agency also reported that South Korea planned to soon begin live fire artillery exercises near five islands in the Yellow Sea, including Yeonpyeong.

Comment: China's political paralysis as the situation deteriorates is very worrying.
