U.N. condemns "clear threat" from North Korea after nuclear test

Source: CBS News

The U.N. Security Council is strongly condemning North Korea's nuclear test and pledging further action.

A press statement approved by all 15 council members at an emergency meeting Tuesday morning says the test poses "a clear threat to international peace and security."

The council points out that in a resolution it approved unanimously last month stepping up sanctions for North Korea's missile test in December it promised to take "significant action" in the event of a new nuclear test.

"In line with this commitment and the gravity of this violation, the members of the Security Council will begin work immediately on appropriate measures in a Security Council resolution," the council says.

1. More fearmongering by some illogical megalomaniacs

I suppose the Iraq war dilemma wasn't enough to learn from.

3. We need to be doing more to help the people of North Korea

and to bring down the regime (and I'm not talking about war). I'm skeptical it will happen because China will block it and sometime in the Middle East will end up taking up the focus again.
