Obama’s world: U.N. bombards N. Korea (with sternly worded letter)

Obama’s world: U.N. bombards N. Korea (with sternly worded letter)

Take that, Kim Jong-un! How do you like the taste of our steel.

Er, well, steely-worded language, anyway.

This is war Obama-style.

From CNSNews:

Meeting urgently Wednesday to discuss Pyongyang’s latest nuclear test, the U.N. Security Council agreed that it will now “take further significant measures” against North Korea, in line with a 2013 commitment to do so in the event of another test.

That 2013 undertaking was contained in a Security Council resolution passed after North Korea’s third nuclear test, on February 12 of that year.

North Korea announced Wednesday local time that it had carried out a fourth test, claiming to have successfully detonated a miniaturized hydrogen device for the first time – a claim some experts are questioning.

If the Norks aren’t deterred by this, the U.N. will bring out the heavy artillery. Read: A “presidential statement,” which is stronger than a “press statement,” which is what the Security Council sent out yesterday. Where as a press statement is a mere “declaration to the media made by the president of the Security Council on behalf of all 15 members [and] issued as a United Nations press release,” a presidential statement is “a statement made by the president of the Security Council on behalf of the Council, adopted at a formal meeting of the Council and issued as an official document of the Council.”

The statement yesterday consisted of 138 words, each one delivering the equivalent of 4 megatons of red-hot displeasure.

If that doesn’t get results, the next step is ostracism. Oooh!

Betcha Kim is shaking in his shoes.
