United States calls for United Nations vote on new North Korea sanctions

Americans are a little too relaxed about nukes

According to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, an expert panel on North Korea for the UN Security Council reported that Pyongyang earned over 270 million dollars, or 300 billion won, of foreign currency by selling coal, iron and zinc to China, despite a UN resolution banning North Korean exports of those resources late a year ago.

The US said it would seek a vote Monday on a draft United Nations Security Council resolution on North Korea, as it pushes for fresh sanctions against the regime after its recent nuclear test.

The draft resolution includes a full ban on exports of oil to North Korea, a full ban on textile imports from North Korea, a ban on North Korean labourers generating earnings overseas, and the asset freeze, which will also target members of the ruling worker's party, the diplomat said, calling it a "hard-hitting, ambitious resolution", CNN reported. The vote in response to Pyongyang's latest nuclear test is intended for September 11, the U.S. mission to the United Nations announced on Friday night.

"Oil sanctions are the most effective sanctions, so I'd like to strongly ask for this", he said.

Staffer told police that Joe Paterno noted 'second complaint' against Jerry Sandusky
Sandusky was sentenced in October 2012 to 30 to 60 years in prison, essentially a life sentence for the 73-year-old. However, the police report was not written until after Sandusky was arrested in 2011, according to CNN.

"We can say we have suspended trade relations with North Korea", Foreign Minister Alan Peter Cayetano told reporters after a meeting with the USA ambassador on cooperation on an anti-drugs program.

Russian Federation has said sanctions aren't working and President Vladimir Putin expressed concern that a total oil cutoff could hurt the North Korean people. South Korea was on alert after thinking they might celebrate with another ballistic missile test, but instead it was a more staid affair with ceremonies to honor past leaders.

Tension on the Korean peninsula has escalated as North Korea's young leader, Kim Jong Un, has stepped up the development of weapons in defiance of UN sanctions.

As for the North Koreans, their official news agency on Friday said the country's "nuclear weaponization. has reached its final phase".

US House passes bill for self-driving cars
Meanwhile, the states will handle matters like inspections, insurance and liability. The House bill exempts a limited number of self-driving cars from federal rules.

North Korea already warned Friday the U.S. will "pay dearly" after its United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley said the regime was "begging for war".

DeThomas agreed that it was unwise to break the unity of the Security Council, but he said the USA administration is unlikely to accept "a very watered down approach". A senior administration official later told reporters that the US won't let North Korea extort or threaten the world with its nuclear programme, and that the administration isn't sure the country could be deterred.

Mexico has given North Korea's ambassador 72 hours to leave the country, though Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray later said it had not broken off diplomatic ties.
