Those who insist the UN can handle the North Korean crisis and point to member nations ’solidarity’ on the matter are nothing but delusional. The UN can’t find a way to deal with the situation in Darfur, a genocide perpetrated by criminals on horseback, supported and backed by a dysfunctional regime. Is there anyone that really believes the UN can effectively handle the North Korean nuclear crisis?And it's sort of like beating up starving dogs, isn't it? The Kag Report continues to be "fake but accurate".
Iowahawk sums up the incentive system:
In the back yard of scientific researchings behind the Great Storage Shed of the People, Iowahawk scientists successfully conducted above-ground nuclear missile test explosions under secure and many malt liquor conditions on early hours of October 10, 2006...So it seems clear to me that anything the UN can come up with is going to be worse than useless. We can't stop loony countries (not to be confused with the rational country of the loonie currency, Canada) from developing nukes. The only thing we can do is avoid presenting them with incentives for doing so.
Link to this post now, or be dealt a thousandtime blow of fresh nuclear Missouri M-80 retaliation! All imperialist stooge traitors of TypePad and Blogger and WordPress must now bow down before the greatness of Iowahawk and his merciless arsenal of peaceful stabilty rockets.
Thus, we should kindly and firmly assure NK and Iran that if they ever try to use nukes for aggression, they are toast, and leave it at that. No incentives, no fancy programs, no assurances of bonuses if they halt, or pause, or promise not to behave better. Cut off all aid programs and promise them destruction if they attempt to attack others. That's the only meaningful policy left.
It's the one policy that the UN will not deliver; the UN seems to be in love with dictators. This is because the UN, as a body, thinks diplomacy is about not offending people, and dictators are famously easy to offend.
I think I'm just going to go back to sleep, wake me when it's over m'kay?
CF, can you blame them? I doubt we would be relaxed if Cuba was setting off nuclear blasts. It seems to me that there was quite a showdown when the Soviets tried making Cuba a nuclear parking lot. I say we support Japan in its efforts. But I don't think the UN is going to be an aid. I think it will be an obstruction.
Couldn't find it's Ass with both hands.
