UN's Failure on North Korea

Expecting a different outcome this time falls under the definition of insanity generally attributed to Albert Einstein: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

With every passing day, the United Nations is becoming more useless in helping to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis. Tough rhetoric and a series of resolutions from the UN Security Council ramping up economic sanctions on the North Korean regime have failed to slow down North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. This was evidenced again last Friday by North Korea’s second ICBM launch, following its first on July 4th. The missile involved in the latest test is said to be capable of reaching as far as the eastern portion of the United States, although there have been some reports of re-entry problems.

Shortly after the July 4th ICBM test launch, the UN Security Council held an emergency session. U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said she expected a tough new Security Council draft resolution to be completed in a matter of days. Four weeks and another ICBM missile launch later, there is still no draft. While a UN ambassador from one of the permanent members of the Security Council told me that negotiations on another sanctions resolution were still ongoing, the ambassador did not hold out much hope for reaching consensus on tough new measures anytime soon.

Only members are Democracies, who actually foot all the bills

The UN has failed at everything except child molesting.

Indeed. It’s par for the course. I can’t think of one success in the entire history of that useless organization.

US out of the UN
UN out of the US

Please name something that the UN has done successfully other than being a haven for spies and consuming U S taxpayer money.

That is because everyone at the UN knows that Israel is the main threat to a world peace. /sarc

The U.N. Security Council has been the international venue that hosts international inaction on North Korean aggression. Even the north’s attempted assassination of the leader of South Korea produced a mandate for talk (inaction) as the right U.S.-South Korean response.

The Korean conflict under the UN and feckless Truman was despicable with the loss of so may soldiers who faught in horrid conditions with sub par equipment,little support and facing fanatics. MacArthur should have been allowed to do his business and push the SOB Chicoms back to their border. I digress,as we now have nuclear China AND North Korea. The war was never ended and it’s time to finish it no matter how uncomfortable it may be. So the Chicoms,Norks and UN can basically FOAD.
