UN Approves North Korea Resolution





Soulfire
Quote:
UNITED NATIONS - The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously on Saturday to impose punishing sanctions on North Korea for its claimed nuclear test, declaring that its action posed “a clear threat to international peace and security.”
Hrm, now that's interesting, because Kim Jong-il has already made it clear that "sanctions will be considered an act of war." So, now that we have imposed these sanctions on North Korea - who's to say that they won't use their weapons?

Quote:
North Korea immediately rejected the resolution, and its U.N. ambassador walked out of the council chamber after accusing its members of a “gangster-like” action which neglects the nuclear threat posed by the United States. Ambassador Pak Gil Yon said North Korea wants talks but warned that it will consider increased U.S. pressure a declaration of war.
So, basically, North Korea was opposed to the sanctions (suprise, right?) And then their U.N. ambassador walked out because of the "threat of the United States." We're a stable, democratic nation who is clearly not willing to incite nuclear hostility throughout the world. That same thing cannot be said about trigger-happy Kim over in NK.

Cross your arms and pout about it. The world told you to stop what you were doing, and you didn't, so now you're facing the consequences.

Kim Jong-il funds his weapons program through crime - money laundering, theft, etc. Yet he won't make an effort to make life better for the people of his country.

I love it when nations that can't feed their own people try to threaten the rest of the world with nukes.

Rediculous.

The sanctions are much lighter than intended, but that was to satisfy China and Russia.

Well, it's obviously right decision on North Korea. No body wants, at least we general people, the world get invloved in nuclear weapon construction and spend money behid this rather than reducing proverty. Unfortunate is Kim Jong and his cabinate memebers will not suffer this sanctions. Rather than it will affect on the general people of NK. People under proverty line will increase due to this sanction. More sufferings to come for them.

Well things don't seem to be going so well at the moment. The North korean ambassador to the UN has stormed out demanding that sanctions are not impossed and has threatened a WAR.... But I'm not sure who he's threatened a war against....?

Seems China also not happy with the UN resolution ...

I think their main concern - or objective, if you perfer, is to provoke the United States.

North Korea even claimed that "If the United States doesn't stop it's hostile policy, we will be forced to declare war." Ironic, considering it's coming from a country that is threatening people with nukes.

And no, China isn't too happy about the sanctions. Perhaps it's the whole Communist thing. Commies unite!

The North Korea (NK) issue has triggered debates all over the world. The recent UN sanction has the vote of all the security members, including China (15-0).

Obviously, NK is against it and by storming out, it does show that the decision of the sanction resolution is having an impact on NK. Latest US report confirmed that the nuclear test was indeed nuclear. So I guess that clears up the air.

Now, the question is how to handle a nuclear NK. The sanctions agreed at the UN will be carried out by the countries agreed but at different degrees depending on how they interpret the sanction. Certainly Japan is taking a stronger measure than China. Japan has already banned NKorean ships from entering Japan and money flowing out to NK. There are some talks about whether Japan should go nuclear - good point: to deter NK; bad point: causing further tension to the region.

Many questions arise from the sanction. Will it actually affect the government or only cause more suffering to the innocent citizens? Will it further isolate NK or strengthen NK's cause? Will isolation mean the downfall of NK government or war as NK has threaten to do?

More importantly, how will NK's recent move to go nuclear affect other countries like Iran? NK decided to pursue nuclear path after learning from what happened in Iraq. Now that NK has nuclear, its adding impetus to Iran to do the same. With NK and Iran having nuclear weapons, what is stopping the terrorists from getting and using those weapons against Western allies?

Kim Jong-il is a turd.

That's not SPAM it's a valid political opinion. Seriously what a stupid, selfish, arrogant son of a you know what. I don't see this situation easing up anytime soon and I doubt its going to be a happy ending.

We can always come to a conclusion based on what the media and the politicians shout. But the truth could be way out. We should analyse why the bomb now? what is so specific about the timing?

Who is North Korea trying to scare away with this? Certainly not Japan or S K. What are they trying to do? Many unanswered questions. Only if we have an answer to all of these we can possibly say what is going on there and what should be our action. Otherwise, what ever conclusions we draw will only be futile. We will end up troubling one when the cause of the whole problem would be another.

The KLDR is really bad especially Kim. I don't understand what he wants. The people around him are dying and he is trying a bomb.
