China Stops Oil Product Exports to N Korea

China didn't export any oil products to North Korea in November, customs data say. And all this time Washington has been insisting they do precisely that. Couldn't they just say it earlier? And how come Pyongyang is still standing if the suspension of oil product imports was supposed to immobilize them immediately?

Now a report (albeit from Fox News, so ... yeah) ... says that Chinese ships are illegally selling oil to North Korea, based on spy satellite pics. But the overall story is based on a South Korean media outlet purportedly citing S Korean govt sources. That's not to say it's the Chinese government, of course, but certainly private profiteers (Russian and Chinese, I assume) would be all over North Korea's energy desperation.
