Considering how Pyongyang occasionally makes noises about how mainland China is a "bad ally", and the fact that Beijing's a LOT closer to NK than the USA and Canada are...mainland China isn't a patron anymore. They're an extortion target.

And China cold squish NK a lot more quickly and conveniently than the USA could: nice, long, common border.

It's ugly, and I don't think that our alleged Leader understands that a nuclear exchange has ramifications for the entire world.

There's still lots of questions. Are the NK missiles capable of atmospheric reentry (functioning heat shields)? Do they have reliable and accurate guidance systems? etc.

The only thing saving NK from being squished is that, unlike the US in Iraq/Afghanistan/Vietnam, China would have to clean up the mess afterwards. An annoying but functional neighbour is preferable to the alternative. For now.
