Russia, once a key backer of North Korea, condemned the test. Moscow's U.N. ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, also the Security Council president, said the 15-member body would begin work "quickly" on a new resolution.
China said it "resolutely opposed" North Korea's test and urged Pyongyang to return to talks on ending its atomic programs.

And it's a known fact that China is scared of N. Korea and that's the only reason they have stuck with them for so long. Now that they are going against 2 of their allies, China and Russia it would be likely that they would no longer be allies and join with the US. Now do I think they will punish N. Korea? No, but I think that Obama is hoping this is the last straw for the other 2 countries, everyone is tried of N. Korea and their nuclear programs. And I don't think Obama is trying to get them to do his dirty work, I think he's smart in not standing up to N. Korea without allies because N. Korea is WHO WE DON'T want to be at WAR with ALONE.
