UNITED NATIONS (CNN) - The U.N. Security Council Monday adopted a declaration condemning North Korea for launching a rocket earlier this month.
WOW! A UN Security Council condemnation is really going to scare Kim Jong Ill. Not! In this case, harsh words are a waste of time.
Obama ought to tell NK that if they ever do that again we are going to war. We do not mind talking to you or Iran about nukes but if you set another rocket over we are going to war. I am all for talking. In fact the only way to let them know that we will fight if they set off rockets is to tell them which in itself is talking.
uh oh... I bet Kim is shaking in his boots... they adopted a declaration!
means more than most people think it means. Too bad it's one line, and one line's not "big news"
Good ol' UN Security Council....such a joke
WHEWWWW!!!!! I feel safer now.
I know it's humane to feed starving North Koreans but consider that allow s "the dear Leader" a great deal more funds to spend on armaments and other weapons of mass destruction to earn "blood"money selling them to rogue nations. So is it wiser to ignore the hardships imposed upon the those needy people when "the dear leader" thinks more of military strength than the "the dear leader" feels about his peoples. well being?
A United Nations declaration condeming North Korea.....ooooohh, I'll bet they're scared now.
Ho hum. Another worthless statement from the UN. Good thing Obama's foreign policy is dependent upon that useless body. I guess when the ICBM technology is transferred to the Iranians, Obama will take it up to the UN once again.
No sanctions? No, "If you ever launch one of these again, we'll destroy the military base you launch it from?" How weak. This totally overshadows the success our military had in saving an American from pirates.
Wow! That took a long time didn't it? I hope Obama's administration can groom our relationship with the UN so that the UN actually does something useful instead of being a forum for the countries that hate America.
A strong declaration....hmmm....that will help. No new sanctions? The world needs to band together and cut off N.K., even blockade it if necessary. If we don't take action, NK will build a nuke and better missiles and will sell them to rogue states and terrorists. Now is the time to isolate NK even more. This may be the first big test of the Obama administration.
That oughta rattle NK's cage. The UN is worthless.
Good Job UN I'm sure that will do the trick. Shaking a piece of paper at them that will work. You are so fierce I'm sure North Korea will get in line now.
I wonder what would happen if they actually allowed Americans to vote on staying in the UN or keeping the UN in America. The result would be amusing I'm sure.
GASP! A condemnation from the UN Security Council! Oh what will North Korea do????
Oooh! A UN declaration! That outta have Kim Jong Il shaking in his elevator shoes!
Maybe Obama can give them a "stern talk" as well. This should do the trick.
Liberial Power in action!
you're right Phoenix86. Perhaps we should just disband the UN, and go back to the way things were at the beginning of the 20th century. you know, by resolving our differences with wars that kill millions of people.
4 Somalis in a rowboat-how will he ever handle N. Korea? So far, he's been a total failure as he threatened N. Korea if they did the launch, but then did nothing.
Yes. We should just go to war with a country that can barely put "a" missle near the US. Where's all this big talk over China, who actually put one or two over here? How bout Iran in general, since they are "building" nukes?
Does that mean Kim has to go into a corner and have a "time-out"?
Oh wait... that would be considered too harsh by U.N. standards.
They'll write him a note and tell him he was a bad dictator.
HOLY BATMAN!!!!!! A UN Security Council condemnation is sooooooooo harsh. Bet that will fix Kim Jong III. Geeez, please hurry 2012!
Oooh Scary: N. Korea's technological capability has made it all the way up to the year 1962. Chilling. Have a nice day!
I see the chicken hawks are out in force today, I wonder if any of the sabre rattlers have any clue that NK did not have the limited capabilty they now have until the clueless wonder GWB, took office and disengaged from the negotiations held prior to him.
From small minds, come small ideas.............
When have the UN ever been effective in the first place? It's nothing but a paper tiger.
