Sony Pictures is a division of the Sony Corporation, which isn’t an American company. It’s a Japanese corporation with world headquarters in Tokyo. And there’s still no clear evidence linking North Korea to the cyberattackers who hacked into Sony Pictures, stealing its intellectual property and emails. Yet the White House says it’s treating the cyberattack on Sony as a "serious national security matter," and the National Security Council is considering a “proportionate response.” I agree we should guard America against cyberattacks, but why, exactly, is the attack on Sony our concern? Should we be protecting every global company?
UN Security Council holds unprecedented hearing on Human Rights in North Korea:
North Korea partially back online after internet collapse. Some internet services have been restored in North Korea after an almost unprecedented internet outage, amid a cyber security row with the US. Though there has been no comment from the authorities in Pyongyang, US experts reported the restoration. Some analysts say the country's web access was cut entirely for a time. Washington said it would launch a proportional response to a cyber-attack on Sony Pictures, which made a comedy about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Officials would not comment on any US involvement in the current outages. Services were partially restored after nine hours and 31 minutes of disruption, cyber security firm Dyn Research says. The website for the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) was back online on Tuesday. But the recovery looked to be partial and potentially unstable with other websites still inaccessible. Analysts had said technical problems or a cyber-attack could be to blame. Doug Madory of Dyn Research ...
UN Security Council discusses North Korea's Human Rights record for first time ever

Korea was behind the Sony cyberspace attacks: "He rejected the idea of dialogue or a visit to North Korea by a U.N. Human Rights investigator, and he insisted that the council should look into Washington's recently released CIA torture report." Ha! That probably shut the US up for about 5 minutes.

Analysts however say that it is unlikely that the Security Council will allow North Korea to be tried in the ICC, as Russia and China - which voted against the resolution - sit on the Council. What a surprise two countries who run their countries by terror are against Human Rights in North Korea, You have heard the saying two peas in a pod now we have three peas in a pod. Where all three have no idea what Human Rights mean only rule by terror. How on earth can either china or Russia be allowed to sit on any security council beggars belief. I suppose one day the civilised world will put an end to this joke called security council and create a proper network of world security and deal with rogue countries. Unfortunately not in my life time there are to many tin pot dictators around at the moment.

United Nations (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council condemned on Thursday recent ballistic missile launches by North Korea, describing the three rounds of Scud short-range missiles fired in June and July as a violation of council demands on Pyongyang.
North Korea recently fired a rocket that placed a satellite into orbit, defying existing international sanctions and showcasing the progress of the nuclear-armed totalitarian regime in ballistic-missile technology. The U.S., Japan, South Korea and China criticized the North Korean action, while the Pyongyang government asserted what it said in a statement was a “legitimate” right to launch satellites. China has veto power and may oppose further steps in the Security Council. The North American Aerospace Defense Command said in a statement that it detected the launch at 9:49 a.m. Korea time, after which the first stage fell into the Yellow Sea and the second dropped into the Philippine Sea. The U.S. agency said the missile deployed an object that appeared to achieve orbit, after North Korea’s official news agency said the Unha-3 rocket had successfully sent a satellite into space. The development followed a failed rocket test in April that embarrassed new leader Kim Jong Un, who has been working ...

Amphibious assault vehicles of the South Korean Marine Corps throw smoke bombs as they move to land on shore during a U.S.-South Korea joint landing operation drill in Pohang March 31, 2014. The drill is part of the two countries' annual military training called Foal Eagle, which began on February 24 and runs until April 18. North Korea declared a no-sail warning on Monday for areas off its West Coast near a disputed border with South Korea and has notified the South that it will conduct firing drills, a South Korean government official said. The warning comes amid heightened tensions surrounding the North after the U.N. Security Council condemned Pyongyang for its mid-range missile launches last week, just as the leaders of South Korea, Japan and the United States met to discuss the North's arms programme.

North Korea responds to the U.N. Security Council condemning its recent ballistic missile launch
This is interesting from Newt Gingrich: President Obama won a significant victory in the United Nations yesterday. President Putin found himself surprisingly isolated. I am often critical of President Obama and his Foreign Policy team but when he gets one right, he deserves recognition and the event deserves some notice. When the United Nations votes to repudiate Putin's takeover of Crimea -- and does so by a ten to one margin -- something good has happened. Votes in the United Nations General Assembly are expressions of sentiment. They are not legally binding. Only the Security Council -- in which Russia and China have vetoes, as do the United States, Great Britain, and France -- can pass a binding resolution. Nonetheless a decisive General Assembly vote is psychologically useful. Yesterday's vote in the General Assembly was so one-sided that I was startled. I can't remember the last time the United States had an almost ten-to-one vote for its position. The actual vote was 100 "Yes" to 11 "No" with 58 ab ...

Since the expiration of the UN’s deadline last month, and and the brief attention raised at that time, the case has once again dropped off the Australian media and political map.

Who gives a hoot, so they say ... “A lot of UN members avoid voting on sensitive disputes that don’t concern them in the General Assembly,” said Richard Gowan, associate director of New York University’s Center on International Cooperation, in an e-mail. “African countries typically avoid casting votes for or against resolutions on Human Rights in Iran and North Korea, for example.” "Countries aren’t obliged to abide by General Assembly resolutions, in contrast to Security Council resolutions that are legally binding. Russia used its veto power to block a council resolution on Ukraine earlier this month. No country has veto power in the General Assembly." Crimea Resolution Backed by U.S. Barely Gets UN Majority
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea test-fired two medium-range ballistic missiles on Wednesday, South Korea and the U.S. said, a defiant challenge to a rare three-way summit of its rivals Seoul, Tokyo and Washington that focused on the North's security threat. The launch of the Rodong missiles — for the first time since 2009 — violates U.N. Security Council resolutions and marks a big escalation from a series of shorter-range rocket launches the North has staged in recent weeks to protest ongoing annual military drills by the U.S. and South Korea that Pyongyang claims are invasion preparation. The missiles flew about 650 kilometers (400 miles) off North Korea's east coast early Wednesday morning, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said. It wasn't immediately clear where the missiles splashed down. Kim said the missiles were likely fired from a mobile launcher. The North's arsenal of an estimated 300 Rodong missiles could in theory be fitted with nuclear warheads — once Pyongya ...
Front companies, embassies mask North Korean weapons trade: UN: North Korea has developed sophisticated ways to circumvent United Nations sanctions, including the suspected use of its embassies to facilitate an illegal trade in weapons, a UN report issued on Tuesday said. It said North Korea was also making use of more complicated financial countermeasures and techniques "pioneered by drug-trafficking organisations" that made tracking the isolated state's purchase of prohibited goods more difficult. The report, compiled by a panel of eight UN experts, is part of an annual accounting of North Korea's compliance with layers of UN sanctions imposed in response to Pyongyang's banned nuclear weapons and missile programmes. The panel reports to the UN Security Council. "From the incidents analysed in the period under review, the panel has found that (North Korea) makes increasing use of multiple and tiered circumvention techniques," a summary of the 127-page report said. China, North Korea's main trading partne ...
162-word summary on the Korean War from "UFOs ETs and Alien Abductions" written by Don Donderi. On June 25, 1950, Communist North Korea attacked South Korea. Within weeks the North Koreans overran most of South Korea except a beachhead around the southern port city of Busan, held by the South Koreans with the help of American troops rushed in from the occupation forces in Japan. The Soviet Union made a political error by boycotting a UN Security Council meeting, and the UN passed a resolution condemning the invasion and calling on other governments to support the South Koreans. A surprise American amphibious landing at Incheon, near South Korea’s capital, Seoul, returned the initiative to the Allies who surged through North Korea all the way to the Yalu River, the border with Communist China. The Allies were driven back by Chinese Communist troops to roughly the 38th parallel, the prewar boundary between the two Koreas. An armistice in 1953 brought the fighting to a halt, but there is no peace treaty an ...

The really, really sad thing is, as Justice Michael Kirby said in his report, the whole world knows what is going on in North Korea, unlike Nazi Germany, and yet we do nothing? The country that holds the key is China, if they want to be a legitimate world power they either need to intervene or vote for the UN Security Council to act. While the world stands by and watches tens of thousands of people either starving to death or being murdered by a regime from the dark ages.
China rejected what it said was “unreasonable criticism” of Beijing in a new UN report on Human Rights abuses in North Korea, but it would not be drawn on whether it would veto any proceedings in the UN Security Council to bring Pyongyang to book.

A deal between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany has been received positively by most nations around the world. Two countries, however, do not share the same optimism: Israel and Saudi Arabia. Israel’s Prim Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the deal “is a historic mistake … it's not made the world a safer place. Like the agreement with North Korea in 2005, this agreement has made the world a much more dangerous place.” Saudi Arabia’s cabinet cautiously welcomed Monday the deal saying "good intentions" could lead to a comprehensive agreement. But hours before the statement, Saudi Foreign Policy adviser, Abdullah al-Askar, voiced concern over the deal. In recent weeks, Saudi Arabia has been pressuring the US to maintain a tough stance on Tehran over its nuclear energy program. Lebanon’s Foreign Minster Adnan Mansour says “The Israeli rejection of the Iranian Nuclear deal was expected as Tel Aviv has for years now promoted the Iranian Nuclear program as ...

After months of canvassing for Nigeria’s inclusion in the United Nations Security Council, the country, Thursday, finally got elected to occupy one of the non-permanent seats on the council. Also elected were Chad, Chile, Lithuania and Saudi Arabia. According to the Washington Post, Saudi Arabia and Chad easily won the seats despite criticisms from Human Rights groups. Nigerian and four other candidates, endorsed by regional groups, faced no opposition, as there were no contested races for the first time in several years. Hailing Nigeria’s inclusion as a Security Council member, President Goodluck Jonathan welcomed the development and conveyed Nigeria’s appreciation of the support of all member countries of the UN who voted for the country’s election. The five new non-permanent members were elected in the first round of voting by the 193-member General Assembly.

S. KOREA CONFIRMS N. KOREA HAS RESTARTED YONGBYONG NUCLEAR SITE NEWSMAX: "SEOUL, South Korea —North Korea restarted its Yongbyon nuclear reactor, a South Korean lawmaker said, as the North put its troops on high alert and said it’s “ready to confront” the United States and the South over naval drills set for this week. The National Intelligence Service informed lawmakers of the restart, ruling New Frontier Party lawmaker Cho Won Jin said by phone Tuesday. Lawmakers were also told that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told his Cabinet he plans to seek reunification with the South by force in three years, Cho said. Running the reactor at Yongbyon would mean the North is making good on promises made in April to restart the facility as part of efforts to produce energy and improve its nuclear armed force. The U.N. Security Council has imposed strict sanctions on the North in a bid for it to return to negotiations and abandon its nuclear ambitions. The finding backed up satellite-imagery analysis this m ...
U.S., Russia agree on Syria U.N. chemical arms measure Ending weeks of diplomatic deadlock, the United States and Russia agreed on Thursday on a U.N. Security Council draft resolution that would demand Syria give up its chemical arms, but does not threaten military force if it fails to comply. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said a deal was struck with Russia "legally obligating" Syria to give up its chemical stockpile and the measure went to the full Security Council in a closed-door meeting on Thursday night. U.N. diplomats said a vote could come within 24 hours. "Just two weeks ago, tonight's outcome seemed utterly unimaginable," Power said. "Two weeks ago, the Syrian regime had not even acknowledged the existence of its chemical weapons stockpiles." "But tonight we have a shared draft resolution that was the outcome of intense diplomacy and negotiations over the past two weeks," she said. U.S., Russian, French and British diplomats told reporters the vote could come as early ...

North Korea, nuclear weapons; North Korea’s Defiant Proposal for Denuclearization Talks Only one week after proposing and then pulling the plug on inter-Korean dialogue over protocol differences, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)’s National Defense Commission on June 16 issued a surprise proposal for “high-level” U.S.-DPRK talks on easing of military tensions, establishment of a peace regime, and “various other issues both parties want to address, including the building of a nuclear-free world proposed by the United States.” A White House statement in response to the offer emphasized the necessity of North Korea taking actions to show its commitment to denuclearization before the United States would accept talks. It stated that such actions would involve North Korea “living up to its obligations to the world, including compliance with the U.N. Security Council resolutions, and ultimately result in denuclearization.” In other words, without accompanying actions that ...

Apparently; they possess such things as anthrax, equine encephalitis (from Chavez), yellow rain (whatever the *** that is from N.K.), SARS, ebola, and plague. The plague bacillus has been developed to be used with insects such as mosquitos as vectors. Now a a joint resolution by the UN Security Council ratified by the General Assembly which Iran, Russia and Venezuela were part and parcel to, specifically bans the development of such weaponized agents, and Iran has once again used these as a threat against the US and Israel because of the sanctions imposed on them over their nuclear weapons program, ...

China Beijing, U.S. Unveil New Korean Sanctions United Nations—The U.S. and China introduced a new round of sanctions against North Korea at the United Nations that the U.S. said would significantly impede the development of Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs, in response to its test last month of an atomic bomb. The sanctions would, among other measures, bring new focus to North Korea's financial transactions and the activities of its diplomats abroad, and call on nations to help prevent leaders of the poverty-stricken country from obtaining specific luxury items, including yachts and race cars, U.N. Security Council diplomats said.

Australian Foreign Affairs Minister, Senator Bob Carr, seems overly concerned about North Korean "aggression" towards the United States. Hmm...just how many countries has North Korea invaded? The United States has led countless wars and invasions around the world for more than a century, has massacred hundreds of thousands of innocents in the preservation of international corporate capitalism and continues to do so. In practice, North Korea is a peaceful nation and always has been. Maybe they talk aggressively, but the US is actively aggressive and violent and murderous. In Australia's democratic and peaceful interests, Carr should be more concerned about US aggression. As he was in the US today getting his marching orders from John Kerry about how to vote in the Security Council, looks like Australia will continue to side with warmongers, mass murderers and aggressors for the forseeable future.

China Says It Won’t Forsake North Korea, Despite Support for U.N. Sanctions By JANE PERLEZ BEIJING — China’s Foreign Minister said Saturday that Beijing would not abandon North Korea, reiterating China’s longstanding position that dialogue, not sanctions, is the best way to persuade the North to abandon its nuclear weapons. At a news conference during the National People’s Congress, the Foreign Minister, Yang Jiechi, suggested that Chinese support for tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea should not be interpreted as a basic change in China’s attitude. “We always believe that sanctions are not the end of the Security Council actions, nor are sanctions the fundamental way to resolve the relevant issues,” said Mr. Yang, who addressed Foreign Policy questions from Chinese and foreign reporters. But the careful remarks masked the unparalleled plain-spoken discussions among China’s officials and analysts about the value of supporting North Korea even as it continues to develop ...
Obama's Susan Rice has corrupted the U.N. through the Security Council and placed sanctions on North Korea for its nuclear testing. She apparently forgets about Western nuclear testing, which never got any sanctions. She also forgets that Western blackmail, economic warfare, sanctions, put Japan into a corner, to survive such isolation, and will force North Korea into war, like Japan. Warmongering rhetoric by Susan Rice and Obama, not only against North Korea, Iran and Syria, is the norm for Western Fascism. Of course CNN and Wolf Blitzer gives her a platform for her Fascist duplicity, typical corporate media duplicity, hypocrisy.
North Korea on Friday responded to tougher sanctions from the U.N. Security Council with another barrage of vitriol, repeating a vow to ditch all nonaggression pacts with the South. Kim Jong Un has reportedly flown to Sallins to speak to a long time friend and confidant of his deceased father Kim Jong-il. Ministry of Homeland security has said" We are concerned about this latest development we were aware of a connection in Ireland we had intercepted coded messages but our top in-tell could not decrypt any of the messages, we are aware the "De Chair" is only using a smart phone but we cannot understand the level of encryption" South Korean President Park Geun-hye, who took office late last month, said Friday that Seoul would respond strongly to any provocation from Pyongyang.

SHOCK: Obama's Asia Team Has No Korean Experts As the world wakes up to the reality of a heightened crisis with North Korea following its latest nuclear test, the Obama administration finds itself with remarkably few Korea experts at the top of its Asia policy team. North Korea confirmed Monday it had detonated a nuclear bomb for the third time, blatantly disregarding United Nations resolutions and the repeated warnings of the international community. The U.N. Security Council scrambled to call a Tuesday meeting on the incident and U.S. President Barack Obama issued a strongly worded statement of condemnation early Tuesday morning. "This is a highly provocative act that, following its December 12 ballistic missile launch, undermines regional stability, violates North Korea's obligations under numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions, contravenes its commitments under the September 19, 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks, and increases the risk of proliferation," Obama's statement said. ...

Observers are predicting a rocky road ahead as the two sides try to bridge their differences over additional sanctions. According to Feb. 13 reports in Foreign Policy magazine and accounts from diplomatic sources, Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the UN, made a proposal early in the meeting for a UNSC resolution on a "swift, credible, and strong" response to prevent North Korea from making further progress with its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. The draft text submitted at the meeting described the nuclear . ...

(We must clean house in Washington D.C.) ~stormie North Korea Nuclear Test Draws Unusual Response From Rice Tuesday, February 12, 2013 As a nuclear North Korea proves once again that it's improving its technology and moving close to marrying a small nuclear device with a more powerful rocket, the United States' initial reaction Tuesday was a big *** hum. Asked Tuesday morning whether she expects a strong condemnation from the United Nations, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said: "We'll do the usual drill." It was a surprising response to an international incident that was largely seen as a threat to the U.S. and one that prompted the U.N. Security Council to call an emergency meeting of world representatives. "I don't know how you come up with a more dangerous scenario than this," Gordon Chang, author of "The Coming Collapse of China," said on Fox News. "This is a very bad dynamic for us." North Korea said it successfully detonated a miniaturized nuclear device at a northeastern test site Tuesday. South Korean ...

North Korea may go for nuclear test again Associated Press | Updated: January 24, 2013 00:41 IST Seoul: North Korea's nuclear agitations follow a well-worn route. It starts with a long-range rocket launch. The United Nations punishes the act with sanctions. And Pyongyang responds by conducting a nuclear test. It happened in 2006, and again in 2009. With the UN leveling new sanctions, the world is about to find out whether North Korea's young new leader will detonate an atomic bomb, or step away from the path his father laid. The UN Security Council voted unanimously Tuesday to adopt a resolution, the third of its kind since 2006, condemning a North Korean rocket launch as violating a ban on missile activity. North Korea's Foreign Ministry swiftly rejected the move early Wednesday, maintaining that the launch was a peaceful bid to explore space and accusing the US of "hostile" intent in leading the push for punishment. In the face of what it considers to be a US threat, North Korea "will take steps for ph ...

8-3-2012 N.Korean Terror Threat Should Not Be Taken Lightly North Korea on Tuesday threatened to "hunt down" defectors as well as South Korean activist Kim Young-hwan, who was released recently after being detained in a Chinese prison for 114 days for helping them. "We will in the future, too, never allow those abductors, terrorists and saboteurs who dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of [North Korea], encroach upon its sovereignty and threaten the safety of its people to go scot-free even by scouring all parts of the earth," the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said in an English-language statement. The North singled out as targets Kim Sung-min of Radio Free North Korea, Park Sang-hak of activist group Fighters for Free North Korea, Cho Myong-chol, a defector who became a Saenuri Party lawmaker, and Kim. Chapter 7 of the UN Charter defines terrorism as "the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression." If an actual act of terror o ...

China has joined other world powers in warning North Korea that they will not tolerate any more provocations after the isolated nation's failed rocket launch last week. China's state-controlled media are also showing signs of frustration with Pyongyang, noting that China took "a clear attitude in condemning" its longtime ally when it backed a U.N. Security Council statement criticizing the rocket launch. China's Communist Party-controlled Global Times newspaper said Tuesday that Pyongyang should not be misled into thinking it can ignore Beijing's wishes with impunity. The paper said North Korea will "pay the price if it tries to abduct China's North Korea policy."
British Taunt North Korea To Create Conditions for War, U.S. Blindly Follows April 14th, 2012 • 8:00 AM The apparent massive over-reaction around the world both before North Korea's failed satellite launch, and after, is a deliberate strategy to create the "facts on the ground" that justify a war. Headline after headline, story after story, expert after expert in the West are screaming, "now expect North Korea to try and overcome the embarrassment caused at the rocket breaking into pieces over the Yellow Sea by carrying out a third nuclear test in the near future" (as the London Guardian's variant put it). That is exactly what is desired, because it creates the condition for war. And, if not war, a sensitive pressure point from which to coerce both Russia and China. What the North Koreans did—have a rocket fail in an attempt to put a satellite in orbit—is something that the United States, Russia, China, and the EU have all done numerous times before becoming successful space powers. Moreover, it is ...
Fearmongers: Had there been a hot warhead on this rocket, our troubles would be over. Please let them play with explosives. NKorea launch draws anger as failure wounds pride: PYONGYANG, North Korea — A satellite launch North Korea had hailed as a moment of national pride ended in failure Friday when the rocket disintegrated over the Yellow Sea, earning Pyongyang embarrassment as well as condemnation from a host of nations that deemed it a covert test of missile technology. The launch is a setback for new leader Kim Jong Un, whose government had projected the satellite as a show of strength amid North Korea's persistent economic hardship. Kim is solidifying power following the death of his father, longtime leader Kim Jong Il, four months ago. In a rare move, Pyongyang acknowledged that the rocket did not deliver a satellite, but it also pressed ahead with grandiose propaganda in praise of the ruling Kim family. The United States and South Korea declared the early morning launch a failure minutes after ...
