I agree with Trump. China has got to be part of the solution with N. Korea.

US official: With eye on North Korea, China puts bombers on 'high alert'

Washington (CNN) Several senior administration officials told CNN Thursday that President Donald Trump's strategy toward North Korea hinges on one word: China.

"Nobody thinks the Chinese are going to press North Korea militarily or bring the regime to its knees, but the strategy looks to China to find a political solution more than anything else," one senior official said.

The officials said Trump's approach is based on a careful review of past US efforts to deal with North Korea, noted that during the analysis of failed negotiating efforts with the long-reigning Kim family, one thing became abundantly clear: "China has never exerted maximum leverage on the Kim regime."

Trump's China-centric approach comes as the US sees evidence that the Chinese military is preparing to respond to a potential situation in North Korea, a US defense official told CNN Thursday.

Chinese air force land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers were put "on high alert" on Wednesday, the official said, adding that the US has also seen an extraordinary number of Chinese military aircraft being brought up to full readiness through intensified maintenance.

The official said that these recent steps by the Chinese are assessed as part of an effort to "reduce the time to react to a North Korea contingency."

Which bomber did they copy?

Is it a knock-off B-53? TU-96? Vurcan? Tupovel?

China is part of the solution as is Russia. But it makes you scratch your head when these countries put troops near North Korea for training exercises...

North Korea is run by the bigger lunatic

And people who hate Trump need to smarten up and accept the facts
