From the BBC:
Japanese Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura has again warned North Korea to return to nuclear talks or face being taken to the UN Security Council.
Uh-oh, we’d better check Kim Jong Il’s underpants for skid-marks because if that warning doesn’t scare the crap out of him I don’t know what will.
Does Japan really think that “we’re going to sic the UN on you” is an effective threat? The Great People’s Pompadour has been watching the limp-wristed way the UN has treated other bullying thugs and has no doubt discovered that when faced with an evil dictator the UN’s policy is to give speeches (not about the dictator, but about something totally different, like how evil Israel is), and then to double park in front of some swank Manhattan restaurant and send the bill to the world’s taxpayers.
To hell with that! Foreign Minister Machimura should say, “look Kimmy, back off the nukes or we’ll go Nanking on your ass.”
