Re: Sanctions
It hasn't even been 2 full days since the UNSC passed them.  Its a bit early to tell.  Prediction: they won't.

Re: Sanctions
Thanks for the timeline. I concur with your prediction. Similar to the US-China treaty to stop hacking each other. It's hard to stop an actively utilized process.

Re: Sanctions
Don't think North Korea has to 'adhere" per se --- it is the rest of the world, inclusive of China, that has to adhere to the sanctions.  NKor wants to business with friends (not enemies) so their door is open to whomeve wants to buy their jun...k, eh, stuff and pay a good bit of money for it.

Re: Sanctions
I think it says a lot about the seriousness of the global situation that China has agreed to adhere to such sanctions against its own economic interest.

Except *maybe* NoKo itself, NOBODY wants war here.
