Little kimmy doesn't want to listen to the yard monitors. If he is not careful, little kimmy may be put in time out!

And what is U.N. going to do if North Korea doesn't cooperate? Shake its finger and call Kim a bad boy? U.N. is useless, as any resolution (especially military) is constantly being negated by the main members (Russia, China, US). North Korea is already economically isolated from the rest of the world. So you are not going to scare it with boycott of french fries and oil. U.N. can bark all it wants, and that is all it is going to do- that is why Russia and China conceded to passing this resolutions. When it comes to military intervention, US will have to go at it alone, and luckily with Iraq it now won't be able o for a long time.

Oh isn't it funny how the US was mad about China and Russia not passing the resolution against NK, yet now US is the one blocking the resolution to stop the violence in Lebanon. I guess there are double standards after all. I mean US can see far away small nation of NK as a threat, yet hundreds of civilians being killed in Lebanon is permissible.

Don't be too sure. South Korea could stop a North Korean invasion on is own, without U.S. help. The only reasonable situation where the U.S. would enter is in the counter-attack and by then, North Korea will be reduced to defending itself via guerrilla warfare.

The U.N is more like a symbolic speedbump. It makes the unilateral look multilateral.

I suppose it is nice to see that the member nations can come to angreement, but I have my doubts that anything will come of this. The UN likes to pass resolutions... but never enforce them. I seriously wonder sometimes why we even bother keeping it around.

didn't see anything new,
this is a result of compromise,it was seriously watered down and disappointed
When you recall of what Japan was hoped/expected minutes after the NK missle tests weeks ago

and now DPRK promises more missle tests.I think they will keep their promise

So the UN adopted a resolution against N K orea. The UN is a meaningless organization. How many resolutions will they draft 10,12 15. How many were against Saddam and Iraq before the US got fed up. Again the UN is useless.
