UN Security Council inflicts wrist slap on North Korea

Yesterday the UN Security Council unanimously passed toothless sanctions against North Korea:

The resolution demands North Korea eliminate all its nuclear weapons but expressly rules out military action against the country, a demand by the Russians and Chinese. Bolton warned Pyongyang, however, that if it continues pursuing nuclear weapons, the U.S. would seek further measures.

Great. This is the international equivalent of saying: “Stop, or I’ll tell you to stop again.”
