China is moving away

North Korea has detonated it's third nuclear explosion underground and has been monitored.

The experts say that the device is smaller than before, causes a greater explosion than before and uses uranium instead of plutonium. Why is this significant? Plutonium has to be harvested and is in short supply, uranium is manufactured and technically has limitless supplies.

While this is worrying news for the international community, what interests me more is China's reaction. The west has always portrayed China as North Koreas big brother, but we have also said that they are losing their grip on North Korea, which to the old school must chaff at the edges, so China is slowly but surely moving away from their North Korean neighbours...
