UN issues N Korea nuclear warning


Recommended Posts

The UN Security Council has agreed on a formal statement urging North Korea to cancel any planned nuclear test and return to disarmament talks.

The final text unanimously adopted by the council expressed "deep concern" over the nuclear test threat made by Pyongyang on Tuesday.

The UN statement warned that such a test would lead to further unspecified Security Council action.

Some observers have warned that a test could come as early as this weekend.

The council statement said a nuclear test would "jeopardize peace, stability and security in the region and beyond" and "bring universal condemnation by the international community."

It said: "The Security Council will act consistent with its responsibility under the Charter of the United Nations."

"It was a very good statement," Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters. "We are pleased that it has been adopted."

"It is a very strong message in favour of respect for non-proliferation."

Japan's Vice-Foreign Minister Shotaro Yachi told Japanese TV after talks with US officials in Washington that it was possible a test could come this weekend.

The North's reclusive leader Kim Jong-il has appeared on state TV being cheered at an army event.

He was greeted with "stormy cheers of hurrah", the official KCNA news agency reported.

It did not say when he made his appearance, but it is the first to be reported in three weeks.

He congratulated military commanders for "bolstering" the country's armed forces and urged them to "further strengthen the battalions", KCNA said.

Japan said on Friday it was stepping up its monitoring of North Korea, although there was not thought to be any specific intelligence suggesting a test might take place this weekend.

"They will probably go ahead and do it as they had that tone in their declaration. It possibly means they are already very prepared," Mr Yachi said.

If they go forward with this Test, it means a UN backed war with every nation in the world behind them.

I, for one, am prepared for this one. I say, bring them on. We'll finish what we started in the fifties. Fucking Commies.

All this is just vague diplomatic nothingness if you ask me…

It means nothing, strong action would be to do something, not just talk about maybe doing something…

This I do agree with, it doesn’t seem to be Kim Jong-il stile to give in to threats of possible nonspecific UN action…

Let me explain to all of you ignoramuses the tremendous power the United Nations can leverage to make things happen in the world. You simple have to understand the concise series of steps the United Nations takes to get rogue countries to comply with its wishes:

1) Warning of a personal reprimand from Kofi Annan

2) Personal statement of potential reprimand from Kofi Annan

3) Personal reprimand from Kofi Annan

4) Warning of possibility of future action from the United Nations by Kofi Annan

5) Warning of a warning of an upcoming strongly worded condemnation

6) 1st warning of a strongly-worded condemnation

7) 2nd warning of strongly-worded condemnation

8) 3rd and final warning of strongly-worded condemnation

9) Really, this is the 4th and last warning of a strongly-worded condemnation

10) Half-hearted condemnation

11) 2nd personal reprimand from Kofi Annan

12) Strongly-worded condemnation

13) Warning of even more strongly-worded codemnation

14) 2nd warning of even more strongly-worded condemnation

15) Even-more-strongly worded condemnation

16) Threat of sactions

17) 2nd threat of sanctions

18) 3rd threat of sanctions

19) Very limited sanctions

20) Somewhat less limited sanctions

21) Limited sanctions

22) Less limited sanctions

23) Modest sanctions

24) Less modest sanctions

25) Full sanctions (except those that may be violated, for personal gain, by UN bureaucrats.)

North Korea has proven time over time to actually know what it's doing- namely, stepping just far enough over the line to scare the fuck out of everybody else into giving them Lots of Money in exchange for promising never to do it again.

The UN had the hell better have the balls to dredge up a Chapter Seven. Nobody with a brain between their ears can possibly stand to be fleeced this often by the same tiny brat with awful hair. Not to mention it'd be a pleasant change to fight on the moral high grounds, for once.
