NKorea Warns UN not to Discuss Warship Sinking


abclocal.go.com

UNITED NATIONS -- North Korea sent the U.N. Security Council a letter warning the world body to not even open debate on the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on Pyongyang, state media reported Wednesday.

South Korea last week officially asked the U.N. Security Council to punish North Korea, after an international investigation said a North torpedo attack sunk a South ship in March, killing 46 sailors. North Korea flatly denies responsibility and says any punishment would trigger war.

Really?

How long will this temper tantrum tactic work for North Korea?

Stomp their feet, get some money, wash rinse repeat..

I honestly don't think that their leaders realize how serious this incident is. Boggles the mind sometimes how those folks remain in power.

Do you think the UN will back down to these latest threats? I hope not.

I don't think the UN will back down, but China will certainly use their veto power should the UN decide to increase sanctions, etc., as punishment for the sinking.

I, personally, am very suspicious of the sinking of this ship. One of the things that doesn't sit right with me, is the fact that North Korea denies sinking the ship.

I would think, given their actions in the past, that they would be shouting from the rooftops that they successfully sunk a SK naval vessel.

What makes you certain, inferred from the language in your opening post, that North Korea really did sink this ship?

As an additional point of interest, Russia has also stated that NK didn't sink the sink according to the results of their investigation. So I would imagine that either China OR Russia may wield their veto power.

Further, what measures could the UN use as leverage against the North that wouldn't require a vote and possible veto situation? Are there any?

Not certain myself on the whole ship sinking incident, my tone is more derived from being tired of hearing the same threatening remarks coming from North Korea.

If they are innocent, they have a right to be heard, all the saber rattling doesn't help there case IMO..

But will they after this?

China know Kim is a loose canon and have bigger concerns at present.
Eventually they will loose their patience with Kim and wash their hands of him.

If North Korea is innocent in the sinking of the Cheonan (sp?), then why are they threatening people not to talk about it? Christ, they're coming off worse than mafia members trying to silence witnesses before a trial...

IMO, the old adage "If you play with fire, eventually you'll get burned" comes to mind. They've been taking pot shots at the S. Korean Navy for decades. This time something went wrong and a ship got sunk.

Further, I'd bet that the U.N. will go ahead and convene the Security Council to discuss the matter, but ultimately I agree that China and perhaps Russia will veto any sanctions that are brought forth.

NK's government reaction is quite representitive of a child's temper tantrum. Perhaps their should be an International Law ...pre requisite for a governing body...emotional maturity above that of an 11 year old.

Hmmm then again that may disqualify a number of other governing bodies as well.

Pfft

The Chenoan was involved in the sinking of a North Korean ship years ago. The sinking of that particular ship was "symbolic". The attack (reportedly) most likely ordered by the younger (Brilliant Comrad?)

The evidence tying the North to the attack is torpedo fragments that feature North Korean markings.

I don't see China getting too involved, while they do share the same idealogy the North is fast becoming the "loose cannon" and has even had a recent incident with China.

I think if and when China removes its support of the North's actions it won't be as likely to try to bully others around.

They're warning the world that if the UN discuss it they will what...?

Issue another warning?

The UN and China included must be growing tired of this.

Hello,

Ha ha! Funny you mention that. What came to mind instantly was??? Israel.

I got this idea that whatever gets world attention is in reality a mask, a veil.

We are mushrooms to our leaders. "Keep them in the dark, and only feed them snip."

They have been so successful at silencing their own people within their country, I guess they have grown grandiose and psychotic enough to believe they can use the same tactics outside NK and have them work.

It's really rather sad to watch. Take brainwashing, mix it would a good dose of psychosis, and you get Collective psychosis. If it weren't so pathetic, it would be interesting to watch unfold.

I think we should post a copy of the DVD "Team America" to our friend Little Kim over there and make him watch it.

He may not be amused at how stupid he looks / is but he will see that when Hans Blix gives him a UN Sanction, he doesn't really give a sh**!!

So nothing to worry about them Kim, OK?

Please,please can i ask everybody not to mention Isra#@ in this post. I was here taking a break from it!
If I see that word once more it will take a diamond tipped blade to remove the glaze from my eyes. Not trying to be a jerk but one can only take so much. North Korea, ahhh thats better.

So North Korea are giving the United States justification in attacking them along with South Korea?

1 NK warns UN not to discuss this incident.

2 UN push for further sanctions.

3 China and Russia use their veto power to block these sanctions.

4 United States and South Korea recognise the UN as ineffective in this case.

5 After this, all they need is a False Flag or second 'incident' and they can fuel up the planes.

Kind regards,

Skellon

China Nor Russia believe NK was responsible.
I don't believe it either.

The evidence was faked. Folks on the investigative team
who did not go along with the official story were let go
from the investigative team. That means the evidence
wasn't allowed any refute.

NK was framed for this act.

The only question left in my mind is WHO did it.
I think it was Israel/Mossad

This happened about the same time as Israeli
submarines were dispatched to the Iranian coast.

And just like 9/11 ..... the US covered it up for
Israel.

Here's an interesting take, and seemingly makes some sense.

Did an American mine sink South Korean ship?


BEIJING - South Korean Prime Minister Lee Myung-bak has claimed "overwhelming evidence" that a North Korean torpedo sank the corvette Cheonan on March 26, killing 46 sailors. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed that there’s "overwhelming evidence" in favor of the theory that North Korea sank the South Korean Navy warship Cheonan. But the articles of proof presented so far by military investigators to an official inquiry board have been scanty and inconsistent.

There’s yet another possibility, that a U.S. rising mine sank the Cheonan in a friendly-fire accident.

In the recent U.S.-China strategic talks in Shanghai and Beijing, the Chinese side dismissed the official scenario presented by the Americans and their South Korean allies as not credible. This conclusion was based on an independent technical assessment by the Chinese military, according to a Beijing-based military affairs consultant to the People Liberation Army.

Hardly any of the relevant facts that counter the official verdict have made headline news in either South Korea or its senior ally, the United States.

I think if everyone ignored NK they would just disappear.The glorious leader seems to be an entity and can only survive by being heard. North Korea ?No never heard of it .

I can't see it happening like that. It's like cancer, you don't treat it by ignoring it. You surgically remove the tumor before it kills of the rest.

In my opinion, even the kids who let everyone push them around finally blow up and pull a Columbine.

Ignoring the behavior would only increase the chances of them doing something extreme.

But unless something is done, its only a matter of time before they think they can do anything they want and get a smack on the hand and in turn do something very tragic.

The UN should call NK's bluff.
