Military action against DPRK not inevitable

Military action against DPRK not inevitable

The blast triggered global condemnation and calls by the US, South Korea, Japan and others for stronger United Nations Security Council sanctions against the North. US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council that Washington would present a new sanctions resolution to be negotiated in the coming days, but Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday rejected US calls for more sanctions as "useless".

But Wang also stressed that "sanctions and pressure" must be go hand in hand with "dialogue and negotiation" with Pyongyang.

Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping spoke for 45 minutes Wednesday as the U.S. president seeks China's help in putting pressure on Pyongyang. "It lasted a long time". "He doesn't want to see what's happening there, either".

The DPRK on Sunday detonated a hydrogen bomb that can be carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the DPRK's Central Television announced.

As hard as it is to imagine nuclear war, it's even harder to imagine what - short of military action - the US can do to dissuade North Korean from achieving its longtime goal of building a complete nuclear arsenal capable of hitting American cities, particularly on the West Coast.

Russia's ambassador to the U.N., Vassily Nebenzia, told reporters Tuesday that he believed the planned timing for a vote on the draft was "a little premature", and suggested that dialogue rather than sanctions are necessary in confronting Pyongyang's continued development of banned weapons programs.

New Report Suggests Joe Paterno Knew About Earlier Sandusky Abuse
In a new report, Joe Paterno admitted that there had been a previous complaint against Jerry Sandusky (l.). Both pleaded guilty in March to misdemeanor child endangerment and were sentenced in July .

North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 2, describing it as an advanced hydrogen bomb for a long-range missile, a dramatic escalation of its standoff with the United States and its allies.

Previously, South Korea was limited to their missiles having a range of 800km and warheads weighing more than 500kg.

It also seeks to tighten restrictions on North Korea's ability to send its citizens to work in foreign countries, where they often are required to send their salaries home to the government. The Chinese, however, seem to be willing to live with a nuclear North Korea as opposed to applying drastic trade sanctions that could lead to a crippled economy and a refugee crisis besides other unpredictable responses by a beleaguered regime. Both nations have pushed a compromise that calls for Pyongyang to give up its weapons program, in exchange for an end to the joint U.S.

Though he took a more critical view this week, Moon previously raised the notion of military talks between North and South as a way to possibly ease the growing strain.

The United States wants the UN Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea, ban its exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean labourers overseas, and to subject Mr Kim Jong-Un to an asset freeze and travel ban, according to a draft resolution leaked ahead of a possible vote next Monday.

The Defence Ministry confirmed on Wednesday the launchers would be installed on a former golf course near Seongju City some 217 km (135 miles) south of Seoul.
