8. My but you are prickly today. Here are a couple of links

I am only presenting an informed but alternate view of the likelihood of getting China's full cooperation. Does that ruffle you feathers, warpy? Transparent enough for you?

One is right to be skeptical about how strongly China will fulfill their pledge because we've seen that kind of pledges before and backed off. For example, the Bank of China cut off its engagement with North Korea back in 2005, 2006, but went back to dealing with North Korea.

...markets in North Korea are confident that sanctions won't be enforced in a way that will disrupt them, reflecting a belief that China is not really going to clamp down on them.
