Where's all those that a month or so ago were singing the praises of Vladimir Putin?  No doubt he is a very strong Leader (and by comparison made Obama look weak), but Putin is not our friend and never will be.  (Adolph Friggin Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and Fidel Castro were also "very strong Leaders"...and enemies of the United States)

Continue doing what Trump, Maddis and Tillerson are doing.  Reagan ran the Soviet Union off the rails and into the ditch as they tried to go head to head with us in an arms race.  This is not as expensive (yet) but it is very costly to keep up this level of military intervention (for all parties).  Both China and Russia's economies are in trouble (Putin's more than China's).  China far more pragmatic and they will play whatever they think is the winning hand for them.  China does not get along well with Russia and vice versa, by the way.  Putin is thee most vulnerable and he is beginning to have trouble at home.  He doesn't have the control of his people that China does; He can't just roll in his tanks and quash any popular demonstrations in his homeland, as they can in China or even Iran!  (He misses that kind of autonomy that Joseph Stalin once had).

We know Russia will be on NK side, but would they fight or just hand them out weapons?
China is in a sticky spot. There's no telling what they would do. Keep piece with the business man that can help them in trade or help useless fatso?

Trump can help Chinas economy. I think they know that. Hopefully everyone just lets Russia collapse and we can use the land as a garbage dump or split it up into civilized countries with no more Stalin wannabes.

China will have a real problem if Russia interferes in their hegemony in the Far East  They are rivals and N. Korea is their puppet.  Kim Jung Un is not behaving as they want him to (this is why they had his brother waiting in the wings as a replacement).  They had far more influence over his father and grandfather. 

Ideally, the pressure of the US Military will lead some N. Korean Generals to work with China to take Kim Jung Un out!  All we want is the WMD's gone and the ICBM program halted.  Kim Jung Un has proven himself not to be the one that will 'negotiate' with China or the UN or the US or anyone.  Maybe someone else will and CHina can still own it's buffer state on the militarized American presence below the DMZ!

Not really sure as sanctions don't seem to bother the leader.

But I know war is not the answer.

Nobody wants war but NK has made it clear that when they finally posses missiles that can reach the mainland of the U.S., they will in fact use them. Trump is wiling to let China handle it for now but can we trust China and more importantly can China trust NK?

What do you see as a long term solution?

Seeing as we (USA) have been dealing with NK for decades as to threatening us and SK, I don't think he will really follow through with his threat to use nukes.

Think about it, if he really wanted a fight, why hasn't he invaded (of for that matter any leader since the Korean war went into a "truce") South Korea?

Why hasn't he sent his military to invade japan or any other USA ally within his reach?

It's all bluster, just like from the WH right now towards our enemies.

But bluster can be a good deterrent also.
