Big shock headline of the day:
The U.N. Security Council met in emergency session on Sunday afternoon to discuss concerns over North Korea’s launch of a long-range rocket. But the closed-door consultations did not produce a clear and unified response.
Diplomats say the council was unified in its deep concern over the launch, but that it could not immediately agree what form its response should take.
The United States and Japan say they want a clear message in the form of a Security Council resolution condemning the launch.
One can just feel Kim Jong Il trembling before the thought of the eventual, much-postponed, sternly-worded “tut-tut” that will soon – or someday – issue forth from the great debating society of the UN.
A clue for the witless: The UN will not be able to stop North Korea. The UN could not, collectively, find it’s posterior with both hands.
