Fox News says North Korea launched, “Defying World Pressure“.
Sunday’s move was a bold act of defiance against Obama, Japanese leader Taro Aso, Hu Jintao of China and others who pressed Pyongyang in the days leading up to liftoff to cancel a launch they said would threaten peace and stability in Northeast Asia.
The U.N. Security Council approved an emergency session for Sunday afternoon in New York, following a request from Japan that came just minutes after the launch.
“North Korea has ignored its international obligations, rejected unequivocal calls for restraint and further isolated itself from the community of nations,” Obama said in Prague, urging Pyongyang to honor the U.N. resolutions and to refrain from further “provocative” actions.
No, it was defying Obama, not the world.
“The World” is effectively powerless. The US is the ONLY country capable of any realistic long term warfare beyond it’s own borders. The UN, unless you want someone to rape your children, is completely ineffective. The UN can paper the world in resolutions but without the military power of the US they are worthless.
Kim Jong Il (or whoever is really in charge of North Korea) is taking advantage of Obama’s weakness and naiveté.
