    Um, The Saudis offered China cheaper gas than the Iranians do specifically to get them on board the sanctions wagon. China's only interest in Iran is undermining US foreign policy. Ditto for North Korea. Ever wondered why there has been no progress for 2 decades in the 6 party talks? North Korea is China's lapdog and it is seeking to cultivate Iran as a second one. Even the Arab states are willing to ally with Israel to stand against Iran's nuclear program. Except this time China will not be able to control the consequences of regional proliferation because the other ME governments are not under their thumb. China is playing with fire and you're living in a dreamworld of rainbows and sunshine if you think for a minute that they'r on our side.
