The UN security council slapped North Korea on the wrist by issuing a statement that would condemn North Korea’s rocket launch and toughen sanctions against the reclusive communist nation. So what?
If North Korea is developing something more dangerous than a satellite, such as a rocket to deliver a nuclear weapon, do you really think a statement that condemns the actions is really going to do anything to stop future actions?
If they’re looking to sell this rocket to other countries, such as Iran, this could have merely been a “test drive”, or a sales pitch to show that the technology works. A statement will prevent nothing if this is the case.
This seems to me like it’s just a slap on the wrist, and I’m sure the North Koreans feel the same.
