now, well in advance, who will it be to blame?
I am talking about North Korea.
The US insists that a diplomatic solution is possible, but they want multilateral talks involving Japan, South Korea, China and Russia, very logic since all these countries are affected.
The US has made clear it will not give any concesions to North Korea, not economic or militar since North Korea already violated a previous agreement and they don't want to reward that, and I agree.
Now, Russia and China insisted the US should hold bilateral talks with North Korea, now Russia backed up and says they want multilateral talks.
The question was brought before the security council. Russia and China Opposed to any resolution condemning North Korea. Interesting North Korea has threatened the security council saying any sanction applied to them will be consider a declaration of war, and Russia and China seem to agree with that. Russia says that would make the situation even worse. China said the security council has NO BUSINESS dealing with that matter.
Now, it's interesting how in the iraqi question both countries were so worried for the US acting alone and not within the UN and now they want the US to act alone.
Maybe because North Korea doesn't have oil and they don't have lucrative contracts with them?
maybe because North Korea is far more dangerous than Iraq and they prefer the technologically advanced and hawkish US to deal with it?
Then, if the US accepts their suggestions and deals with this alone, what will they say if the US attacks North Korea outside the UN?
and they wonder why the UN is useless...
