UN? Tough? It is to laugh

UN imposes tough new sanctions on NKorea

UNITED NATIONS – The U.N. Security Council imposed punishing new sanctions on North Korea Friday, toughening an arms embargo and authorizing ship searches on the high seas...

Authorized ship searches?!  What a joke.  The resolution is more like 'Captain, may I?'

U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, who shepherded the resolution through two weeks of complex and sometimes difficult negotiations, told reporters in Washington that the administration was "very pleased" with the council's "unprecedented" and "innovative" action.

Says a lot about the current administration, doesn't it?

The UN is a joke in itself.  Why anyone pays attention is beyond comprehension.  NK's Dear Leader certainly is not.
