I think what was really important with North Korea was that we try and push through as many diplomatic options as we have. If you look at the resolutions that have passed in the last month, the two of them. They cut 30% of the oil, they banned all the laborers, they banned 90% of the exports, they banned joint ventures.
We've basically taken and in the words of North Korea, we have strangled their economic situation at this point. That's gonna take a little bit of time, but it has already started to take effect. What we are seeing is they continue to be provocative. They continue to be reckless, and a that point there's not a whole lot the Security Council's gonna be able to do from here.
>> We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road. And so for those who have said and been commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option. Now, it's not what we would prefer to do, so what we have to do is call on all nations.
Call on everyone to do everything we can to address this global problem short of war.
