Breaking: UNSC Votes Unanimously to Place Sanctions on NoKo

From Reuters:

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council voted on Saturday to impose financial and arms sanctions on North Korea to punish the reclusive Communist nation for its nuclear weapon test.


The vote was 15-0.

The U.S.-drafted resolution allows nations to stop cargo going to and from North Korea to check for weapons of mass destruction or related supplies. But the measure specifically excludes military force.

It requires all countries to prevent the sale or transfer of materials related to Pyongyang's unconventional weapons programs. And the resolution demands nations freezes funds overseas of people or businesses connected with North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Update: The NoKo representative to the UN walked out after the UNSC unanomously voted to sanctions against his country. Allahpundit has video of Ambassador John Bolton's reaction.

Stop the ACLU is following this news as well.

So is Captain Ed.

So that line alone is what makes the whole things worthless. This resolution is the same as any other resolution except it gives N. Korea exactly what they want. A guarantee they won't be attacked. There is no no consequence to breaking a UN sanction (not that there ever was).

We really need to pull out of the UN, and asap. The usual suspects were in there to pull strings for n. Korea. There is no excuse for what garbage was passed at the UNSC...

As most of you know we have a naval strike force lead by the USS Enterprise, headed toward the straits of H. and coast of Iran...given that we have not had any "strikes" against N.Korea...nor, it appears any are planned...is there anyone here who believes a strike against Iran..for their Nuke "potential" would be justified?

Yes, since they've sent jihadis into Iraq to kill our servicemen/women and continue to try and create a civil war in Iraq not to mention threatening to burn Isreal off the face of the earth..Under these present conditions I can see it happening..also theres the terrorist thing and thats perhaps the most dangerous threat of all.

Would I recommend it? No, but I think it is getting dangerously late in the game and they are not going to be affected by sanctions anymore then Iraq was? They will just go around it with the help of other countries..

Obvioulsy nogo has no clue as to the way that NoKo operates. Most of their military facilities are built underground, with all possible air approaches lined with massive amounts of anti-aircraft cannons and missiles. One carrier wing would not put a dent in the NK facilities, but would wind up with a large number of the wing being blown out of the sky. And when I say underground, I mean under the side of a mountain several hundred feet down. They learned from the NVA about digging tunnels as there are at least 4 tunnels under the DMZ that have been discovered, all going a ways underground.

Not that the US is necesarily planning a strike on the Iranian nuke facilities, but I don't think that they are as heavliy defended as NoKo ones are.

But as someone else pointed out, since the Iranians have been financing Hamas and Hezbollah for years, have been sending terrorists into Iraq to kill US troops, has stated that they want to erase Israel from the face of the earth...yeah, I can see bombing the crap out them as being justified.

I'm with jhow. Pucker Puss, why link to something no one here will look at, and which you should summarize in any event, if you think it so damn important to interrupt the cogent thought in this thread.

I feel like jhow is the brother I never had. Or, he's a mind reader.

Thanks for taking the thread off-topic. Mitchy, As I stated above, the link was to a summary. I forgot that for some of you Republicans even a summary is too much for you to understand.

What your comment shows is that Republicans still don't give a crap what America's allies think. That's what I'm doing here on Wizbang, Mitchy -- showing the hypocrisy of the right every chance I get (my thanks to you and jhow66 for volunteering).

Republicans want our allies like Britain to send their young to die alongside ours, but we really don't give a damn what they think.

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Most Britons back the country's army chief who said British troops should be withdrawn from Iraq soon because their presence was making security worse, a poll showed on Sunday.

Chief of the General Staff Richard Dannatt sparked a media and political storm last week when he criticized post-war planning for the 2003 U.S.-led invasion in a rare interview.

Dannatt told the Daily Mail British troops should pull out "sometime soon because our presence exacerbates the security problems" both in Iraq and for British interests around the globe.

Wow, Dannatt echoes exactly what I've been saying for the last six month. Imagine that. Read the story for yourself, Mitchy. Was this enough of a summary for you, or were some of the words too big for you to understand?

Attitudes such as your has cost the Repubicans' the mid-term election. I'm counting on you and jhow and other die-hard Republicans will "volunteer" often enough over the next two years to cost you the next Presidential election too.
