Bargaining Chip?

Things are not always about what they're about:

China would have a six-month deadline to revalue its currency under a bill to be introduced in the US Senate amid charges the yuan is wreaking havoc on the US economy, officials said.

At least a dozen senators from both President George W. Bush (news - web sites)'s Republican Party and the Democratic Party have agreed to co-sponsor the bill, Israel Klein, spokesman for one of the senators, told AFP.
Is the US putting pressure on China, under cover of this bill, to do something about Kim Jong Il?

Just let your own loose cannons crash about a bit, threatening the very core of Chinese economic progress, then tell Hu Jintao & Friends "of course, if you could get rid of KJI & his nukes, we could make this bill go away for you in return."
