Default UN Rep Rice really managed this missile situation well through the UN

SEOUL, South Korea North Korea announced Saturday that it would attempt to launch a long-range rocket in mid-December, a defiant move just eight months after a failed April bid was widely condemned as a violation of a U.N. ban against developing its nuclear and missile programs.

(Yes the UN enacted a ban on the missile test. I guess they did or will do the same for Iran when it announces it is testing atom bombs. Probably the only ban the UN will enforce is a ban on guns in the US.)

The launch, set for Dec. 10 to 22, is likely to heighten already strained tensions with Washington and Seoul as the United States prepares for Barack Obama's second term as U.S. president and South Korea holds its own presidential election on Dec. 19.

This would be North Korea's second launch attempt under leader Kim Jong Un, who took power following his father Kim Jong Il's death nearly a year ago. The announcement by North Korea's space agency followed speculation overseas about stepped-up activity at North Korea's west coast launch pad captured in satellite imagery.

Default Next time read the entire comment rather than coming up with a meaningless remark.

Sorry, your just not communicating your point.

Are you saying, because of the title of your thread, that Rice somehow failed in this attempt to enact a ban? What does the UN have to do with guns in the US?

If you are trying to make a point - please make it using actual facts with links to back them up.

What you are doing is babbling and throwing out weak innuendos and I frankly don't have a clue about what you are trying to say.

I think the OP is going on about a UN invasion to take away all our guns. Possibly next week sometime.

I suppose they will amend our Constitution at that time, while they are at it.

Did anyone hear or see the interview with McCain in which he constantly referred to her as Condoleeza Rice ?

I just wish that Washington could leave all the nonsense behind and focus on working for the good of us all.

Yeah, I know, I also believe in Unicorns
