NEW YORK—(TYDN) The United Nations Security Council on Monday unanimously approved a new round of sanctions on North Korea, one week after the country conducted its sixth and strongest nuclear test to date. The sanctions are designed to bring more hunger in hopes the North's starving republic would revolt against Kim Jong Un, the leader of the world's most repressive regime, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.
Following the vote here, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, applauded the food sanctions against the hermit country.
"It is dark and it's getting darker," Haley said. "The entire international community is united against its dangerous, illegal actions. And one day, if there are enough North Koreans alive, they will rise up in a revolution."
A U.S. official familiar with the negotiations, speaking to TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity, said the Security Council privately believes the latest round of sanctions could push millions into starvation and possibly eventual death—all in a bid to leave Kim without a populace to govern and without the need for nuclear arms.
"This is foreign relations by attrition," said the official in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "Under this policy, Kim will give up his thirst to enter the Nuclear Club and the world will be saved from this mad man."
The official defended the U.S. mission from critics who say the sanctions were watered down from an original plan designed to bring Kim to his knees much faster. That strategy included spraying the North Korean public with sarin, a move that would kill off the North Korean public much faster than would starvation.
"The United States would never agree to the use of sarin gas. Starvation, while bringing on death slower, is much safer on the environment and chemical weapons are forbidden by international treaty," the official told TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive interview. The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to address the proposed gas attack.
US President Donald Trump, speaking to TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive Oval Office interview, said he preferred the sarin gas attack, and he threatened to pull the United States out of the United Nations.
"Jesus Christ, when will this stalemate with Kim ever end," Trump said. "Kim is a mad man and cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons."
