Unlike his predecessor, Donald Trump does not telegraph his military plans. He has chosen former Governor Nikki Haley to be his Ambassador to the United Nations. She is releasing snippets of information that may lead one to believe the United States will take military action against North Korea. Then again, she may be trying to get the UN to act against Kim.
“Nikki Haley Nails It on the UN and North Korea”
Bravo to Nikki Haley, America’s ambassador to the United Nations, who put out a statement on Sunday saying that contrary to some reports, the U.S. will not seek an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
That’s a smart break from the longstanding U.S. pattern. Sidelining the UN Security Council may be small potatoes in the face of the daunting problem of ending the threat of North Korea, but it is at least a move in the right direction.
In the past, these crash meetings of the Security Council have served among other things to paper over the failures of U.S. policies meant to stop North Korea.”
