"[N Korea] claims [this] was its first hydrogen bomb test": There is still NO proof they even have WMDs. I didn't hear anything about radiation levels...

Multiple picture attachment shows that these sanctions are not so effective......!

When "toughest sanctions" worked in history? I don't know it.

I think these "toughest measures in 20 years" are also going to be scoffed at by NK.

These banking, small arms bans and putting some individuals on a blacklist is nothing.

the problem is whether china will actually implement them.

What sanctions have been put on India and Pakistan for their nuclear and missile programs? And Israel? JFK was intent on stopping Israel getting nukes; he had also started printing government dollars, cutting out the massive scam that is and was the 'Federal Reserve'. Just two, but I suspect the main two) of the reasons he was cut down in his (and the USA's) prime.

It looks and sounds good on the paper for U.N., but the bully communist China would find the way to keep the gangsters of N.Korea (DPRK) floating and abusing the mass of N.Koreans as the buffer zone for China. It might work if resolution has the means to severely punish the member state that breaking this resolution. Clinton and Albright had enticed N. Korea for eight years to nowhere, and Obama's team just keep on talking as DPRK keeps on launching....

North Korea’s six missile tests and four nuclear tests, according to some estimates, have cost at least $4 billion. Meanwhile, he said, the U.N. is spending a little over $100 million annually on humanitarian aid to the country.

Wow, what a waste of money. Think of all the Bibimbap that could've filled the tummys of all those hungry people.

Yeah. Too much "talk." Meanwhile the NK regime threatens to blow the tits off the earth. The sanctions are a joke.

Sanctions don't work; wars do though, historically speaking

I wouldn't be so flippant about this - everyone knows NK's nutbag ruler is a walking bomb. It's only a matter of time before he acts.

Don't worry. It's all paid for in counterfeit U.S. dollars, another nice sideline.
