The Hermit Kingdom, China, and the Muslim Brotherhood
United States intelligence agencies recently uncovered a covert deal between North Korea and Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood government to ship Scud missile parts from North Korea through China to Egypt.

The shipment of Scud components is scheduled to be sent by air cargo transport through China and on to Egypt, according to U.S. officials familiar with intelligence reports. The shipment would be the first by the North Korean regime to the new Egyptian regime headed by Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed president.

China has repeatedly violated the U.N. sanctions on North Korea by providing goods and technology to the communist regime in Pyongyang, according to U.S. intelligence officials. The Obama administration so far has failed to challenge either Beijing or Pyongyang for the violations. The most serious proliferation activity, according to the officials, was China's recent transfer of road-mobile strategic nuclear missile launchers to North Korea. The transporter-erector launchers (TELs) were spotted in April during a military parade in Pyongyang carrying the new KN-08 ICBM, a road-mobile ICBM capable of hitting U.S. cities.
