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.
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.
