United Nations Sides With North Korea Over US…

After weeks of mass tension over North Korea’s nuclear program, US Secretary of State urges for international sanctions.

Rex Tillerson states that if they fail to act it will “lead to catastrophic consequences.”

“All options for responding to future provocation must remain on the table. Diplomatic and financial levers of power will be backed up by a willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action if necessary,” Mr Tillerson said. “We much prefer a negotiated solution to this problem but we are committed to defending ourselves and our allies against North Korean aggression.”

Reported by thefederalistpapers,

Chinese and Russian diplomats blame the U.S. for the current crises in North Korea, citing President Trump’s “reckless muscle flexing.”

Obviously, North Korea has done its own share of “muscle flexing” over the years, from wild threats to real attacks. Not to mention the heinous way they treat their citizens.

How can the U.N. seriously consider unconditional negotiations as the North has shown no interest in abandoning its nuclear weapons and missile capacity while aggressively threatening neighboring countries and the US?

What went wrong with calls for increased sanctions?

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson convened the session of the United Nation Security Council and called for member states to increase sanctions on Pyongyang and suspend or downgrade diplomatic relations with Kim Jong Un’s regime.

But in the contentious session, Chinese and Russian diplomats sought to shift the blame for the nuclear crisis to Washington. Moscow’s deputy foreign minister accused President Donald Trump of “reckless muscle flexing” by sending more military assets to the Korean Peninsula. “The whole world is seriously wondering if there is going to be a war,” the minister, Gennady Gatilov, told the council.

“Reckless muscle flexing?” North Korea is in possession of nuclear weapons which it tests in spite of sanctions and restrictions. It is currently seeking intercontinental ballistic capacities while threatening to attack the U.S., South Korea, Japan, and even Australia.

Yet responding with anything other than submissiveness is reckless?

Where do we go from here? Is it too late for diplomacy?

The Wall Street Journal continues:

Mr. Tillerson’s speech on Friday was seen by the White House as the start of a stepped-up campaign to isolate North Korea. He urged all countries to cut or suspend diplomatic and economic ties with Pyongyang—comments directed in part at China, North Korea’s key ally.

Mr. Tillerson also said the U.S. would be willing to negotiate with North Korea only if the Kim regime exhibited good faith by honoring U.N. resolutions meant to curb its ballistic missile and nuclear program, which it has consistently violated.

“We will not negotiate our way back to the negotiating table,” he said, adding the U.S. “would not reward” North Korea’s bad behavior with talks.

China sees things differently. Not only is diplomacy still the best option, but the U.S. and South Korea have increased tensions. According to China, when North Korea threatens to murder your people for years on end while demonstrating tests on nuclear weapons and missiles, you’re not really supposed to take it seriously.


The Wall Street Journal continues:

China called for unconditional diplomacy and accused the U.S. and South Korea of ratcheting up tensions by expanding military exercises and suggested that both sides had equal responsibility in defusing the situation.

“The use of force does not solve differences and will only lead to bigger disasters,” China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the council. He said there can’t be “double standards” and talks must resume without preconditions.

[…] The U.S. Treasury Department’s former point man on North Korea, Daniel Glaser, said Thursday that U.S. policy makers needed to understand that China views North Korea as an ally, regardless of its frustration with Kim Jong Un’s activities.

  1. The United States should have pulled out of the United Nations years ago.The organization is nothing more than a USA/Israel hating bunch of middle eastern Muslim/Communist countries that vote against just about anything the US promotes. We should pull out, stop funding them, remove them from our country.

  2. get rid of the UN…what, is President Trump supposed to stand down with these guys? I don’t think so…fucking weinees

  3. The UN is useless and weak. We are long overdue pulling out of it. Time to pull out, cUT all funding to it, and time for the UN to move their HQ.

    • I am as God fearing as the next but I’m sure N.Korea does not understand 2 Chronicles so they must be met with what they do understand and that is force. Their people have but two choices to avoid cremation, get rid of Kim Jong Un or suffer the outcome of many years of wasteland. We spent 8 years playing pansy with themand it got us nothing, TIME IS UP.

  4. I fully agree. The UN is a total waste of time for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Tell them to take their pathetic behaviour and find some where else to hate the USA. and ISRAEL I would like to see CANADA also with draw from the UN

  5. …. as the North has shown no interest in abandoning its nuclear weapons and missile capacity ….
    Even less interest than the US?
    People who live in glass houses ….

  6. Get out of the UN & send them to another country & while we are at it get out of South Korea. Let them fight their own war with the North. Did we not learn anything from Viet Nam?

  7. Get out of the UN NOW! They need us more then we need them. How many of them have shown up for any of our emergencies, like Katrina? How much help have they shown Haiti?

  8. Obama has the United Nations army ready to go against we the people when he gives the go ahead for I SIS. we are in trouble. The radical liberals Hollywood all the people with big bucks in United nation is Supporting Obama.

  9. FIRSTLY LET ME SAY THAT I AGREE THAT THE UNITED NATION HAS PASSED IT’S SELL BY DATE LONG AGO AND ANY MONEY SPENT ON PROPPING THEM UP IS A TOTAL WASTE,AS A NON-AMERICAN I WISH TO SAY THAT ANY MILITARY ACTION AGAINST THE FANATICAL NORTH KOREAN REGIME WILL DEMAND AMERICAN TROOPS ON THE GROUND,AS THE SOUTH KOREAN CAPITAL IS ONLY SOME FIFTY MILES ACROSS THE BORDER,IN A SUSTAIN FIGHT THE SOUTH WOULD WIN BUT PAY A HEAVY PRICE IN CIVILIAN CASUALTIES AND THAT IS THE TRUMP CARD THE NORTH HOLDS AGAINST THE SOUTH,ANY ACTION MUST BE SO DEVASTATING TO THE NORTH THAT IT STOPS THEM IN THEIR TRACKS, THAT WOULD NEED AMERICAN SOLDIERS ON THE GROUND AND THAT MEANS THE LOST OF AMERICAN YOUNG LIVES AGAIN.
    BEWARE OF CHINA THEY MAY USE THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BACK THE NORTH COVERTLY TO DRAW AMERICA INTO A WAR OF ATTRITION IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE.

  10. I don’t really understand why everyone is taking a stand against the UN after reading this article. I too have objections to the UN, but not on this issue. I think Tillerson is wrong. He makes the point that going back to talks would reward Kim Jong Un for being a jerk. But do we REALLY WANT to pollute the earth with more bombs, putting more and more radiation into our atmosphere?? Do we really know how much that has impacted the problems we have, with things like climate, natural disasters, so-called ‘acts of God”, etc.?? The Korean kid just wants to be ‘a player’…. one of the big boys. Would it really be so bad to soothe his ego a bit, if it meant we could avert a very bad war?? It seems to me, that we should end the war games with south Korea, bring the fleet back home, and be ever so slightly apologetic and contrite, and VOLUNTEER to resume talks wih him. Let him feel like he won one. It could make a huge difference for everyone involved. Russia and China think we’re being too aggressive. I don’t know how anyone else feels, but I definitely do not think that this plan of aggression is the best solution for this stand-off. Sometimes, applying a little psychological wisdom does more good than applying a little power and force. I would urge Mr. Tillerson to reconsider his position on this one.

  11. I am a 100% certain that the US will evacuate from Korea all its military personnel without informing South Korea or its allies. If this does happen and it will be secret, then the hotwar will be on. Pressure must be increased on China to rope in their horrible creation. Chinese President Xi Jinping is responsible first and foremost to the Communist party of his country.No matter how much he would like to help President Trump, it probably is not in his power too.Therefor the Us president cannot expect any but symbolic help from him.
    Their are not only US surface ships but many US nuclear armed submarines each one alone with the power to obliterate North Korea on a signal from the US president to totally destroy the North.This of course is the nightmare scenario that the US and the rest of the world should contemplate.
    No insane person would want this to happen and Kim jong-Un is far from this.
    His only defence is bluffing and playing a deadly nuclear game of chicken with the US. Faced with total annihilation he has to find a face saving formula and negotiate with the US President who will only be satisfied with a total guaranteed denuclearization of the Korean peninsular.
    China must do everything in its power to inform its former ally that only negotiations can save the world from an even worse scenario than Nagasaki and Hiroshima.With the survivors suffering a long agonizing death and potentialy millions of innocent people and children being among the victims. .

  12. Peace is the goal. War is not a reasonable answer. Go back to the table and just stare the NK in the face and say no to everything. Just sit there, say no until The NK people get sick enough of this fat man to shed their own blood to remove him, or c
    Let the NK people continue to suffer because they are not willing to fix their own country. Look at this country. Many Americans have shed, and continue to shed blood for their own country. The NK people are going to have to wake up, and do what they need to do.
