Dictator Ignores UN Shock!

choc_teapotSo starts a week of stern looking diplomatics scurrying around wringing their hands issubing condemnations and expressions of “grave concern”.

Just like they did over Zimbabwe, and just like they will over Iran when the mad mullahs carry out their testing (assuming this isn’t all a joint venture between Tehran and Pyongyang). The sceptre of the League of Nations still hangs on the air after all these years.

Unsuprisingly, Kim Jong Il seems unconcerned about the chattering in New York. Though I’m not an expert by any means, it seems that the lynchpin in all this will be Bejing. What is China’s interest in supporting a nuclear North Korea? Will it actually force them to keep Jong Il on a tighter leash, lest he trigger a tit for tat exchange, ultimately between the US and China?

In the meantime, Obama is looking to intercept ships heading to North Korea carrying WMDs – students of world events of 1962 will be particularly interested in that one. Might be worth watching the sea lanes between the Arabian Gulf and South China Sea …

    Surely all this was supposed to stop when the evil Bush was no longer Mr President and the Messiah took over to talk with dictators and offer them some bagels if they handed over their uranium research. How could all those lefties have got it so wrong? Maybe there’s a first time for everything.

      Blasphemer! Ye shall be burnt at the stake, with a fire kindled by old copies of the New York Times and the flames fanned by Prius drivers waving DVDs of Farenheit 911.
