Thanks a Bunch Peking!

For the definitions page of "Close the barn door after the horse has bolted," we have a new entry:

China has banned exports to North Korea of a range of technologies that could be used to build weapons, the latest move to deter Pyongyang's internationally condemned nuclear programme.

Prohibited goods include ring magnets, high strength aluminium alloys, laser welding equipment, and an array of compounds that can be used to produce nuclear and chemical weapons, the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement late Tuesday listing restricted "dual use" items.

Our friends the Chinese communists!

If our allies Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan decide to go nuclear, I suggest we take action to stop them just as promptly as China has for North Korea.
