I assumed the lard laden one was going to have something to say about this and sure enough, just like a clock striking noon, he does.

This seems like a pretty hard squeeze. Not sure what else the allies can do in this regard.

Deliveries of petrol products will be capped at 500,000 barrels a year, and crude oil at four million barrels a year
Why allow in any oil?
It can't be for any humanitarian purpose, since what they do receive will doubtless be prioritised for military purposes.

Back in the old days when Hong Kong was British the disparity between cheap Chinese and expensive HK diesel was quite large. Some entrepreneurs built a pipeline beneath the Shenzhen estuary between China and the New Territories.

There seemed to be an awful lot of taxis touting for fares along the northern HK coast until it was found out.

Many ghost ships are reported on the shores of Japan with dead bodies found and it could be a sign of desperate attempts to increase fishing quotas demanded from poor crews. Mostly they die all hands in a futile effort to sail far out to the sea.

How far is this country from collapse? Isn’t it possible that Kim Fat Un will order his army to invade South just for the sake of pillaging food? Old wisdom says that any dog will attack if you push him hard into corner.

If they stopped all goods then all would suffer visibly and the masses would look to their leaders for succor.

If some oil is allowed in, as you opinioned it will be visibly used by those empowered in leadership and entice the masses to revolt.

It's kind of like our new tax bill. If only the rich benefited the little guy would revolt, so we give them enough just to wet their tongues and not feel totally screwed

Anyone noticing similarities in the situation with NK right now and that of Japan in late 1941?

North Korea does not currently occupy Manchuria, nor has it been engaged in a war with China for the past 4 years. What similarities do you see?

Large heavily armed militaries itching to go.
Split Military/Civilian governments.
Expansionist policies.
God Emperors


And now, most significantly:


An oil embargo.
Oil is a nations blood, was then is now.

President's Trump latest broadside against China came after South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported that Chinese tankers had been secretly transferring oil at sea to North Korean vessels.
Quoting South Korean government officials, it said the illegal ship-to-ship transfers had been filmed by US spy satellites about 30 times since October.


US officials did not confirm the report but one state department official quoted by Reuters suggested that such transfers could still be taking place.
"Ship-to-ship transfers... remain a concern as part of North Korea's sanctions evasions activities," the official said."

Under what authority can South Korea detain this ship?

How long can it be detained and what will release it?

The article linked says:


Is oil part of the sanctions against the North?

Yes. Last week Beijing supported a US-drafted UN resolution that included measures to slash the North's petrol imports by up to 90%.

The 22 December sanctions also refer specifically to attempts by the North to procure prohibited goods.

The measures address the "illicit imports of petroleum through deceptive maritime practices by requiring Member States to seize, inspect and freeze any vessel in their ports and territorial waters for involvement in prohibited activities".

The people who elected him to the White House certainly should have done.
