APEC Speaks Out Against N. Korea Nukes... Sort Of
The APEC meeting held in Vietnam has ended with a statement from members of the 21 nations council urging the North Koreans to take adequate steps to discontinue building nuclear weapons. Oh yeah, like that's gonna stop them. And this was only a verbal statement, which carries about as much weight as a U.N. Resolution - basically worthless jibber jab. So why was this left out of the official written statement? My guess is that they don't want to confront Kim Jong-il. It seems even the South Koreans are afraid to intercept North Korean ships to stop the nuclear weapons program there and prevent the spread of its nuclear technology to terrorists and rogue nations.
