There are members of the Alliance that want to see NK physically destroyed, totally, in order to secure themselves and at the same time advance their ambitions. Some, like Japan, are afraid of a direct attack by Pyongyang. Others are afraid of an indirect attack by North Korea transferring nuclear technology or weapons to their enemies in another corner of the world. Both are equally adamant that the window for talks is over, and war is the only option, with total surrender and denuclearization acceptable as an alternative, though this is highly improbable.
The only exception to the rule that national interest motivates each state actor is South Korea, because of the way it was born and ruled from the first day of its inception, being made up mostly of holdovers from the Japanese-installed Korean government and military that is totally loyal to Japan, even at the cost of losing millions of lives of its citizens and armed forces. They used to be in complete control, but now, they are in hidden control with a sitting president that advocates for peace but essentially approves all the steps, not just for a war of aggression and decapitation at that, but also for sustaining enormous civilian casualties in high population density areas like Seoul, in effect setting up a humanitarian trip wire for North Korea to trip over, triggering an incredible, horrible humanitarian catastrophe, that would force America to instantly, reflexively "totally destroy" North Korea. Counting the lives in Seoul of about 12 million as against the total lives in North Korea of about 22 million, such a scenario would still be a "win" for South Korea, even though it would be a pyrrhic victory, which no government that is truly sovereign and nationalist in orientation would ever allow to happen. For the same reason, if anyone is going to accept the task of lighting the fuse, even at great risk to his own life, it will have to be the loyal South Korean detachment of Imperial Japan still. The spirit of Kamikaze is alive and well over there, since it has been governed continuously by the same cabal long after the defeat of Japan in WWII.
The sanctioning of China is an objective in and of itself, waiting for a reason, such as the failure of North Korea to succumb to the sanctions imposed on it by China, but was originally better suited to China's supposed practice of currency manipulation (the fact is, China indeed had been manipulating its currency to be overvalued, by selling dollars and buying back yuans, the very opposite of what her accusers mean by currency manipulation - the buying of dollars and selling of yuans), but if neither suffice, just add it its supposed lack of religious freedom, human rights, and so forth. It was thus irrestible for those wanting a NK-US war to grab onto sanctioning China for "not doing enough" which kills two birds with one stone. It sets up China for more sanctions and military confrontation, even if North Korea eventually collapsed, so it guarantees continuity of Plan A. And if China cooperates it becomes a sure loser, because if NK survives the sanctions, it will henceforth regard China as an enemy, and if NK collapses, China's northeast border would be completely naked and vulnerable for years to come.
All of this noose-tightening around the neck of China can occur, only because China has some folks insisting it should not demand as a condition for its applying sanctions on North Korea that the Allies agree to initiate or offer a Peace Proposal of guaranteeing permanent and comprehensive peace for North Korean in return for the permanent and complete denuclearization of North Korea. Because China has no balls to make even a most sensible and reasonable requirement for its cooperation, it stands to be pushed around and blamed for everything that goes wrong going forward, as it has no reason for its not agreeing to more and more, and even more, sanctions that will of course starve North Korea to death. But, that is the law of the jungle as applied to international relations, those who have low testosterone become prey, and those who have high testosterone become predators. And if that is the way China is, then so be it, nature rules.
