I'm not usually an advocate of this, but... I really wish someone would put Kim Jong out of his misery.

I'm pretty sure he is taking care of that himself by not watching his weight.

I'm just curious how much more of this we or any other nation (including China or Russia) will tolerate. Or even what a good solution would be that wouldn't resort to war.

I don't trust ol' Kim with nukes or with ICBMs, and certainly not both in tandem.

It's an interesting question. North Korea is sometimes lumped in with Russia and China in terms of 'blocs' in International Relations (or at least as I understand it). Japan, on the other hand, as a close US ally (whether that allyship is entirely consensual, since the whole nuke-dropping thing) would tend to be not a state that Pyongyang would be on good terms with.

One suspects that Kim Jong-eun would be too crazy for Russia and China to be allies with. Vladimir Putin in particular is a cunning statesman, and hardly an idiot.

Also, Russia and Japan have a long history of animosity, going back to at least the early years of the 20th century (the Russo-Japanese war).
