The only thing sanctions brought us was a nuclear armed N. Korea. Sanctions haven't worked against Cuba. While it may impress those with the IQ of a brick sanctions against Germany only brought us WW2. You can bow down and kiss up to China after they spread one of the worst pandemics in the last 100 years across the world killing millions and doing more economic damage than we can recover from in the next 20+ years. It was Trump focusing on the vaccine that is allowing us to reopen our country that the left shut down. Hopefully we will start removing these failed left leaders who killed off our elderly in the nursing homes and destroyed small businesses all across our country in favor of the big box stores that fund their party. Not to mention the crisis they created at our borders that Trump had bring under control. Of course Biden has returned our border to an even worse crisis. Hopefully Biden won't give away everything we fought for in the trade agreements Trump made that were 75+ years over do. Lets hope Joe spends most of his time trying to remember and recite the politically correct speeches his puppet masters are writing for him.China was doing something about North Korea. So was Russia:
- On 30 March 2010, President Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree implementing intensified United Nations Security Council sanctions against Pyongyang's nuclear programs.
- In December 2013 Russia joined the sanctions against North Korea, introduced in March by the UN Security Council (Resolution 2087).
-In December 2016, Resolution 2321, passed and capped North Korea's coal exports and banned exports of copper, nickel, zinc, and silver. In February 2017, a UN panel said that 116 of 193 member states had not yet submitted a report on their implementation of these sanctions, though China had.
- In February 2017, China banned all imports of coal from North Korea for the rest of that year. China also banned exports of some petroleum products and imports of textiles from North Korea in line with United Nations resolutions.
- In October 2017 Vladimir Putin signed Presidential decree No. 484 "On measures to implement UN Security Council resolution 2321 of November 30, 2016" imposing sanctions on North Korea in connection with the adoption of UN Security Council resolution 2321 of 30 November 2016.
*** In January 2018, Trump's trade war crusade against China and constant denigration began.
*** In June 2019, both China and Russia blocked UN efforts to declare that North Korea was violating oil caps.
*** In December 2019, China and Russia proposed the U.N. Security Council lift a ban on North Korea exporting statues, seafood and textiles, in a move Russia said is aimed at encouraging talks between Washington and Pyongyang.
*** By late 2020, China was being accused of helping North Korea evade UN sanctions.
