Il 'sorry' for nuclear test
So another of Il's multiple personalities has emerged from that dark chasm of a soul. One minute he's threatening the UN with nuclear war, the next minute he's sorry. Give it a few weeks, and he'll be back to his threats and illegal tests. This guy needs an entire team of psychiatrists.
But I have to give credit to the Chinese. I don't know what their Korean envoy had to say to Il, but obviously it got his attention. Perhaps the Chinese didn't like us suggesting that Japan may need nukes of their own to counter Il's threat. Secretary Rice's visit to Japan had a lot to do with it as well.
I think this again shows the incompetence and obsoleteness of the UN. They were unable to do a thing about this situation, yet a single envoy from China put an end to it, albeit likely a temporary end. One wonders just what good is the UN? When was the last time they actually did something beneficial for the the world, not to mention America?
I agree with Newt Gingrich. The only way this issue will be resolved is through a regime change in North Korea. It's good that China is taking the sort of initiative they're taking, but these results will only be temporary. The world will not be safe until Kim Jong Il is no longer in power.
