    If only offshoring is as simple as offshoring office work to India. Great going with your first post. I see what you did there.

    You just underestimated a very basic human instinct of survival (NK). Kim may sounds and acts "crazy", but he is not stupid, neither is China.

    When you offshore a work to another person, you want to guarantee the delivery of said product when you demand. Can there be such guarantee in offshoring a nuke? The answer is surely NO. What if NK "first strike" when China does not want to? Or NK refuse to "first strike" when China want? Once that thing is in another person's hand and you have absolutely no control of its usage, it is NOT an assets, it becomes liability.

    To be honest, no nuclear power (China included) wants (wishes) anybody else to have nukes, selfish it is, but truth indeed. It is not like sharing a car.

    In other words, there's nothing actually happening.

    While Trump postures on Twitter, Tillerson quietly gets the job done.

    Trump is more like a mascot than a stick. A very drunk mascot.
