Why China wants North Korea to be a nuclear threat

From NYPost

If worse came to worst and North Korea detonated a nuclear warhead above Honolulu, the losses would include up to 44,000 US troops, as well as our vital bases ringing the city — beginning with Pearl Harbor.

Who would benefit?

Not North Korea. We’d level that mountainous country.

Certainly not us, with our Pacific forces crippled to a degree the Japanese couldn’t have hoped to achieve in 1941.

The sole winner would be China — not even a party to the conflict. And that is a cardinal reason why Beijing will not help us halt Pyongyang’s nuke and missile programs.
