North Korean Countdown -- Ban and the Bomb

So … the UN, while failing utterly to stop Iran’s nuclear bomb program, welcomes Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad earlier this month to preach his apocalyptic visions on the General Assembly stage.

Then the UN on Monday anoints as its next Secretary-General –with only the procedural votes left to come — a South Korean foreign minister, Ban Ki-Moon, who has been deeply immersed for years in the appeasement-driven approach with which South Korea and its allies have failed utterly to stop North Korea’s rogue nuclear bomb and missile program.

And less than 24 hours after Ban clinches the backing he needs to win the keys to the UN executive suite, North Korea announces plans to conduct a nuclear test. Can we connect the dots?
