    Calling out Beijing: US ‘gift’ to China shows unenforced North Korea sanctions

    Acting Pentagon chief Patrick Shanahan surprised Chinese counterpart Wei Fenghe with ‘beautiful’ present during meeting in Singapore.
    What looked like a coffee-table book was actually 32 pages of photos and satellite images of North Korean ships getting and delivering shipments of oil.

    The Chinese answer is that they're smugglers. Within context, the Chinese are saying that there are leakages and there's no way to plug every leak. They're keeping North Korean factories dark but expecting them to stop every freighter that can barely carry enough fuel for a gas station is asking too much

    ^ That's how smuggling rings operate. Destroy one source, another one crops up instantly. It's just unbreakable. Take for example the 'Silk Route'. Closed by the feds, arrests made, but there are drugs still being sold on the dark web. Ofcourse the business continues. It's always a new name, a new man, a new tactic. As for the Chinese, I don't think they're stupid enough to do this in the middle of the ocean, under literally 100s of eyes in the sky.
