SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea appeared to slip further into isolation on Monday, as China - under intense pressure to enforce new U.N. sanctions - inspected cargo trucks bound for its communist ally and stepped up construction of a border fence.
Japan - once a major trading partner with the North Korea - said it was considering further sanctions, and Australia banned the North's ships from its ports.
In Washington, U.S. National Intelligence Director John Negroponte's office said that air samples have confirmed that North Korea conducted an underground nuclear test.
The Chinese inspections at a border crossing with the North came amid concerns that Beijing would ignore the new U.N. sanctions leveled against the reclusive communist country for its proclaimed nuclear test. China is a major trader with North Korea and its support is key to the success of the new U.N. measures, which call for nations to check cargo leaving and arriving from North Korea.Link

I think I here alot of people trying to go back to sleep.
At some point we've got to get out of bed and deal with this stuff! I've never seen a problem resolved by ignoring it or by half measures. What's the next outrage gonna be? When do we take this seriously? (sorry, rant)
