U.S. Says Time for Talk On North Korea, OVER!

From AFP:
Nikki Haley, the US envoy to the United Nations, said there was "no point" in holding a fruitless emergency Security Council session, warning that another weak council resolution would be "worse than nothing" in light of the North's repeated violations. 
The US Senate passed new bipartisan sanctions on Pyongyang on Friday. Haley urged China, Japan and South Korea to tighten the screws on Pyongyang. 
"An additional Security Council resolution that does not significantly increase the international pressure on North Korea is of no value," she said in a statement late Sunday. 
"It sends the message to the North Korean dictator that the international community is unwilling to seriously challenge him. "China must decide whether it is finally willing to take this vital step. The time for talk is over."  
The latest ICBM test "poses a seemingly tangible threat to the national security of the US", said Jeung Young-Tae, director of military studies at Dongyang University in South Korea. 
"Now the US will see no point in negotiation, which only helps Pyongyang earn more time to develop its weapons programmes," he said. 
"Whether we want it or not, the risk of unilateral military action by the US cannot be ruled out at this point."
Earlier, Trump warned that he would not allow China -- the impoverished North's sole major ally and economic lifeline -- to "do nothing" about Pyongyang. 
In two tweets Trump linked trade strains with the Asian giant -- marked by a trade deficit of $309 billion last year -- to policy on North Korea, after South Korea indicated it could speed up the deployment of a US missile defence system that has infuriated China. 
"I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk," Trump wrote. 
"We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!"

Add China's dispute with India over Doklam. Possible co-ordinated pincer strategy between US and India?

Then note China held massive military parade and show of force at Zhirihe presided over by Xi Jinping himself this past weekend.

Xi declared the PLA ready to defeat all "invading enemies" as he celebrated the 90th anniversary of the PLA's founding. It was the first time a parade has been held to mark the occasion.

The definition of fascism has recently been changed to say that fascism is a right wing ideology. I did some research to find the correct and true definition of the words fascist and fascism. Dictionaries post dating 2009 have the new liberal version of the definition of 'fascist'

The term "fascist" as used by the left in America today originated in the Soviet Union. Stalin used it as a blanket condemnation of any and all who opposed his regime.

When political prisoners were sent to the gulag they were derogatively referred to as "fascists" generally. They were considered lower than the actual criminals confined with them. Even murderers. You can read about this in accounts written by former gulag prisoners.

So if you opposed Stalin you were a fascist. If you oppose the left today, you are a fascist. It is that simple.

That has held true for nearly a century now.

There ARE NO sanctions and therefore NO diplomacy which will CHANGE the policy of North Korea to have and execute an ICBM which can successfully KILL AMERICANS as blackmail against regime change in North Korea.

Therefore we either work with SK and Japan to TAKE COVER while all three of us ACT, or we acquiesce.

My first comment to this thread should read:

"It seems to me that diplomacy with and sanctions directed at NK have failed."

Yeah, I don't see how sanctions will work, if China is willing to circumvent them AND THEY ARE.

Also, North Korea is already a nation full of people who eat bugs and grass and cardboard.
