IN THE NEWS A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE

North Korea faces sanctions and change

At this writing, North Korea has been in the news for a number of reasons. One involves the test launch of long-range missiles and the underground test of a nuclear weapon. On June 12, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to sanction North Korea for the nuclear test, and to attempt to stop its further development of nuclear weapons. Among other sanctions, it called upon UN member nations to inspect cargo vessels and airplanes suspected of carrying military equipment or related material into or out of North Korea.

How big a difference this will make is debatable, since the only mandatory provision is a ban on arms exports. North Korea has responded with aggressive rhetoric, stating that such sanctions, if actually implemented, would be an act of war, and implied that it would strike back.
