Politic:Punishing Pyongyang

assalaamualaikum...i as a reliable speaker,with all my heart,would like to post on punishing Pyongyang for a rocket launching recently...

the prospect of UN sanctions?

As the communist government and other renegade states have discovered over the years,there are always ways around those-a recent international report says the ones imposed against the north in 2006 after it conducted nuclear test have little effect.


Military action?

Not wise against an unpredictable country that has threatened to use nuclear weapons.China,its closest ally and neighbour is eager to maintain the North as a buffer with democratic South Korea and has been urging calm by all parties to avoid raising tensions any higher.
The North Korea said it was putting a sattelite into the orbit.US,S.Korea and Japan think the country was testing long-range missile technology-a move which they warned would violate a UN Security Council resolution banning the North from ballistic activity.


Beijing is unlikely to support tougher action because it doesn't believe it would have much effect on Pyongyang,according to Shi Yinhong,professor of international relations at People's University,Beijing.China worries that such measures have damaged its relations with NK.
There are also ambiguities that NK appears to be exploiting by saying it has the right to the peaceful use of space.


"it really depends upon the views of the permanent 5 members of the Security Council.And if China or Russia do not support this,then nothing's going to happen." said Daniel pinkton,a Seoul-based analyst.


NK has dealt with sanctions already.The ones imposed after it conducted an underground nuclear test in 2006 appear to have little effect,largely because implementation was left to individual countries according to a study by Marcus Noland.


NK could actually stand to benefit from the launch.It has a history of using brinkmanship to wring aid and concessions from the West.In addition,a successful launch could help the poverty-racked country sell missiles parts to other countries.
Along with more aid,Pyongyang wants to have direct talks with the US instead of going through six-nation process that has been aimed at getting it to give up its nuclear weapons programme.

THBT Pyongyang should be punished:
Pros:
1)It violates a UN Security Council resolution banning NK from ballistic activity.
2)Punishing is the best way
-06 have had little effect because it wasn't implemented enthusiastically.
3)It threatens the whole world

Cons:
1)It is only launching a sattelite into the orbit
2)Punishing is not a good solution
-2006-NK underground explosion that barred Pyongyang from working on ballistic missiles have had little effect.
-to punish we need co-operation from other countries.It's hard to implement and will only give the same result as in 2006.
3)NK is only developing its missile technology for export
-NK is among the poorest country.It could get money from here.
