A diplomatic solution to the North Korean nuclear crisis has become more illusory than ever after the high-level reception that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership accorded “Dear Leader” Kim Jong-Il last week.

All nine members of the Politburo Standing Committee (PBSC) were on hand to greet Kim, a high level of protocol reserved for China’s “lips-and-teeth” ally.

Beijing agreed to boost economic aid to the DPRK in addition to committing massive new investments in cities close to China’s northeastern provinces. Given that Pyongyang is persevering with its program to build weapons of mass destruction, the Hu Jintao leadership’s redoubled support for its Stalinist neighbor amounts to Chinese acquiescence to Kim’s efforts to join the nuclear club.
