WEB Notes: Global Powers are really turning up the heat on North Korea. Economic sanctions of this magnitude are in fact an act of war. If we see North Korea strike out at this point it may very well be due to desperation…
In this day an age this is why a new global order is needed. Even North Korea who is considered an outsider nation relies on the global community to support itself. We no longer live in a time when a single nation can support itself. Aside from the United States and Russia which could sustain themselves if they truly wanted to.
Instead the nations are tangled amongst each other and need each one to survive. As technology grows and our reliance on it, we as a world will need to become even closer which means more economic ties. No matter how you slice it, a new global order is coming and it is written in our Father’s Word.
The latest U.N. sanctions against North Korea are an act of war and tantamount to a complete economic blockade against it, North Korea’s foreign ministry said on Sunday, threatening to punish those who supported the measure.
The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Friday for its recent intercontinental ballistic missile test, seeking to limit its access to refined petroleum products and crude oil and its earnings from workers abroad.
The U.N. resolution seeks to ban nearly 90 percent of refined petroleum exports to North Korea by capping them at 500,000 barrels a year and, in a last-minute change, demands the repatriation of North Koreans working abroad within 24 months, instead of 12 months as first proposed.
