LIVE: Emergency UN Security Council Meeting on North Korea Nuclear Test

by Countable | 9.4.17

Kim Jong Un is "begging for war," America's ambassador to the United Nations told the Security Council on Monday. According to the LA Times,

From the United States to Japan, ambassadors at an emergency meeting Monday of the U.N. Security Council spoke in increasingly shrill tones, expressing fear and anger after Sunday’s test of a nuclear bomb eight times as large as the device that destroyed Hiroshima at the end of World War II.

    No first-strike by the United States of America's Military. Use every other option known to man to resolve this conflict or problems with the North Koreans.

    We must do everything we can to prevent war, we must use every diplomatic intervention available to us. Nuclear war must never be an option.

    Hopefully the UN will act responsibly where our Idiot-in-Chief fails to.

    USA should not strike first. Use all other means to pressure North Korea to the negotiating table.

    Nothing will happen. They'll just issue a prepared statement condemning the nuclear weapons tests & maybe more sanctions which won't work

    With Mr. Trump making statements such as "Talking is not the answer!" and egging on thermal nuclear war, the time has come for him to be removed from office for the good of our country and the good of the world. I call on all of our representatives across the country to step up and remove him from office, we cannot wait until the missles are in the air.

    I posted way back in March or April that this will be going down by September or October at the latest. We cannot just keep toleration those monsters in North Korea to just test Away and launch missiles and make threats because one day it will be for real and then it may be too late! China refuses to put a short leash on them and that's there ally! Americans will not be threatened! The President must and will do what he needs to do to protect us and our allies! So quit your belly aching!

    Diplomacy has failed at every front, time to use our multi-billion dollar military to protect our citizens and remove a toxic government from power. There's no other way around it. Sanctions have done nothing to banks holding assets, to the North Korean regime, or to countries trading with North Korea. Soft power is not the answer anymore, it's time we use the next tool of politics: War.

    The only Country's that want nuclear war is North Korea and Iran. Now that North Korea has been testing Nuclear bomb and developing these bombs for the Pass 5 years that we know of anyways . The UN nor did the US try in any way to stop this , for some reason OBama made a deal with Iran for Nuclear Power instead of dealing with North Korea. Makes you wonder who he was giving the Power to. I think President Trump has reached out to many Country's to Divert the situation even to China , I can't see China not stepping up since they have been buying into American business. I know that liberals would love to blame Trump for this but this was an on going thing since Kim took over and before him. And since no one has tried to stop him this is where We are he does not care . The Nuclear bomb has become his drug , complete Power. There is NO dealing with that. This should have been stopped a long time ago whether you idiots want to believe this has just happened because of Trump this has been happening , Grow the Hell up. We The People of the United States of America pay billions to the UN for situations like this , maybe if they where trying to control North Korea as much as they where trying to destroy Israel this wouldn't have gone this far. The UN is Useless beside stealing money from all Country's for their own Agenda not the Worlds Agenda.

    Beware of a little insecure guy with a nuke who hates a big insecure guy with a nuke. Nothing good can happen. Do everything to prevent war. The people are starving. Offer a "Rice for Rockets" program in exchange for freezing nukes. Staying alive is a good thing.

    Please, I beg you!! Do not allow a military conflict!!! Only and always diplomatic solutions. Dialogue is the only way to understand what people want. Never allow that person in the WH to dictate what should be done because he only wants to divert the public's attention away from his and his family's and all his entourage's corruption and connections to Russia and the illegitimate elections.

    Please use all diplomatic measures to relieve tensions with North Korea. Support Japan, China, South Korea and other regional powers to neutralize the threat of nuclear war. Complete global nuclear disarmament is preferred, especially over violent conflicts. #peace #unity #diplomacy

    Mad as hell. Take Mr Trumps Twitter finger away from him. In years from now historical scholars will offer poli-sci lectures noting the 1st and only war started on social media. We cannot start a war that we will have So Korea, Japan, Guam and possibly Hawaii paying for in loss of life. We cannot start a nuclear war...and those who say we should - go to Seattle, the beautiful PNW or Hawaii or Guam with your families and say drop the bomb. It's easy when it's not ur family.

    Get the UN (sic) to approve and help with a total embargo of NK until regime change or give up all nukes and long range missiles or both would be good fir the people of NK. Thanks to Bill Clinton for creating this mess too.

    I would hate to have to take military action, but with every event getting more and more intense, and our President not deescalating the situation, it's almost felt that this is our only action. As a liberal too, I think that war will end up being our only option, because he's not giving up his nuclear program, and without that off the table there's no discussion. Sounds like such a lose/lose situation. Sad time
