I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

U.N. passes resolution condemning N. Korea

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Saturday to selectively wag its collective finger at North Korea over that county's ballistic missile program. The North Korean government responded by sticking its tongue out at the UN.

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said North Korea set "a world record" for a rejection — 45 minutes — and warned that Pyongyang's failure to comply could lead to further council action. He did not say what that might be.

The resolution bans all U.N. member states from selling material or technology for missiles or weapons of mass destruction to North Korea, and from receiving missiles, banned weapons or technology from Pyongyang.

The next step should be a vigorous wagging of the UN finger. The North Korean delegate warned against such a move.

Pak warned that North Korea will "take stronger physical actions of other forms should any other country ... take issue with the exercises and put pressure."

He immediately left the council chamber at the end of his speech in a move considered a breach of diplomatic protocol.

They may be considering giving the UN the finger next which may cause Kofi Annon to huff and make a statement.

What a great concept. A world organization that pays people to jabber and posture while the world's despots continue to threaten to destroy their neighbors with impunity.
