The UN Security Council is set to vote on a US-drafted resolution aiming to hit North Korea with new sanctions, slashing by a third its $3 billion annual export revenue in response to Pyongyang’s recent missile tests.

The draft resolution would ban Pyongyang’s exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore, and seafood.
The draft text would also prohibit countries from increasing the current number of North Korean specialists working abroad, and ban new joint ventures with Pyongyang as well as any new investment in current joint projects.

The proposed document would add North Korea’s key Foreign Trade Bank to a UN sanctions blacklist that imposes an asset freeze. It would also enhance trade restrictions on technology to prevent North Korea from acquiring items that could be used for its military programs.

North Korean vessels caught violating UN resolutions would be banned from entering ports in all countries.

The measures could deprive Pyongyang of roughly $1 billion in annual revenue.

These so-called "sanctions," which businessmen of all moral persuasions always attempt to evade in their relentless search of profit, are not the right answer for North Korea.  The people of North Korea are already starving to death, and they are the ones we are punishing with these sanctions.

We need compassion for the people of North Korea, and a strategic response to the nuclear weapons and expert counterfeiting capabilities of North Korea autocratic regime.

A strategic response could be unimaginably risky not certain of a China reaction. Sorry for the people but I think it wise to exhaust all avenues prior to wielding weapons. If North Korea attempts a first strike then we will be justified in the eyes of the world to respond in kind. At this time we most likely can intercept anything thrown at us by the little dingle berry. A global conflagration is to be avoided at all cost other then a direct attack on us or our protectorates. This world is much to beautiful to destroy while dealing with this imbecile. Probably need a Commando style assassination by a South Korean operative.
