    “the combination of concern about China and about North Korea”

    This statement is clear recognition that North Korea isn’t the main problem, Chinese belligerence and territorial ambitions with all its neighbors is the problem. North Korea has been threatening war for decades, but most nations in the region ignored them, they weren’t reason enough for a military build up. But when China starts a massive military build up, and threatens to take lands all around its borders, that calls for action.

      You’re right. If China was not the main threat, it would have throttled the DPRK decades ago.
