WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE UN GETS...GONE
[Cartoons by Scott Stantis]
TIMELINE OF OBAMA'S TOUGH RESPONSE TO NORTH KOREA:
April 3 - North Korea Launches Rocket to test missile system but pretends it is a satellite launch
April 5 - Obama says North Korea should avoid more provacative actions
April 5 - Ambassador Susan Rice says the US will work with UN for "appropriate" response
April 5 - UN Security Council Adjourns without response to North Korea
April 5 - North Korea warns that any UN censure will result in severe consequences
April 6 - China says UN should be "prudent" in dealing with North Korea
April 6 - Krauthammer calls UN response "a farce"
April 7 - Obama and Gates Gut the Military
April 7 - Forget North Korea, Obama team readies for confrontation with...Israel
(Israel, for the uninformed and the anti-semitic left , is a US ally)
April 8 - ????
Krauthammer has it exactly right: "If he [Obama] had gone to Oz, it would have had more effect than what happened yesterday at the UN."
And, one last thought...every day that passes, a "strong" response that in any way negatively reinforces NoKo's behavior becomes more and more laughable.
The UN is a gutless, toothless, apologist for and enabler of evil and tyranny.
