Condi: UN Dealt N. Korea "Resounding Defeat"

#1
From CBS News:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that a U.N. Security Council resolution which imposes sanctions against North Korea has the rouge (sic) state isolated even from its closest ally, China.

...

"It will be enforced because member states have an obligation to enforce it," Rice told Face The Nation host Bob Schieffer. "I think there are some matters that will need to be worked out… But this is a really resounding defeat for North Korea. And it's a resounding victory, really, for the international community and its efforts to deal with proliferation matters."

"A resounding defeat" great words to a nation where face is all. Now watch them really throw teddies.

Wishful thinking.

At the moment the NORKs are riding high after their nuclear test.In the next week or so they will probably explode another bomb to show the world how serious they are.Meanwhile the only country that has any real influence over them (China) is getting cold feet about the sanctions it supported only a few days ago.

Condi's comments are meant for the domestic audience in an effort to shore up the Republican's image as a party of national security.

Read up on the subject before commenting.

The sanctions cover military hardware and luxury goods, not staple foods, medical equipment or everyday items!

Yes, with diplomatic language like that no wonder the USA is always getting ready for the "next big one". I'd hate to hear her when she is being hawkish!!

What's the point then? We prevent the Iranians and the Chinese selling them weapons, since sanctions worked so well on them and we stop Mercedes and BMW selling cars to the generals. Hoo ah! That'll make them think twice about developing nukes.
