Good evening, Netizens…
From the AP Wire
Here is an AP picture of the guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain as it approaches Busan in South Korea.
WASHINGTON: Senator John McCain, who appeared today on CBS’ “Face the Nation” stated the U.S. should board a North Korean ship it is tracking if hard evidence shows it is carrying missiles or other cargo that violates the U.N. sanctions and resolutions.
The South Korean news media reported Sunday that the ship was sailing toward Myanmar via Singapore. However, several sources told members of the news media that North Korea seldom exports anything but weapons.
The Obama administration has said it’s prepared to confront ships believed to be carrying contraband materials from or to North Korea, but would not try to forcibly board them.
If there is valid, hard evidence indicating this ship is carrying missiles or other weapons of mass destruction (or parts thereto) should the United States forcibly board the ship? The difficult part about answering this is do we have hard evidence that anything illegal is going on?
If this were your call, what would you do?
