I can just hear the whining from New York now:
White House May Go to U.N. Over North Korean ShipmentsBut of course it'll meet a ton of opposition in the *cough* United Nations and will be labeled as 'antagonistic' by many.
WASHINGTON, April 24 - The Bush administration, facing a series of recent provocations from North Korea, is debating a plan to seek a United Nations resolution empowering all nations to intercept shipments in or out of the country that may contain nuclear materials or components, say senior administration officials and diplomats who have been briefed on the proposal.
The resolution envisioned by a growing number of senior administration officials would amount to a quarantine of North Korea, though, so far at least, President Bush's aides are not using that word. It would enable the United States and other nations to intercept shipments in international waters off the Korean Peninsula and to force down aircraft for inspection.
But if the United States was to just take matters into their own hands, that's wrong too.
I'm guessing it'll take North Korea popping a nuke somewhere in the region to get the UN's attention (HINT-HINT: Iran).
President Bush is trying to do things the 'nice' way - the way that the UN would *cough* like, but the United States will still be labeled as a 'cowboy nation' for trying to do things that other nations would like us to do.
