- If government hacks have no clue what to do they turn to economic sanctions. Never mind that sanctions failed against nations from Napoleonic France to Nazi Germany to Islamic Iran.
- On the other hand, sanctions on Imperial Japan caused them to attack the United States.
(Washington Free Beacon) - Congress is expected to level fresh economic sanctions on North Korea this week as the threat of the hermit nation's capability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear missile continues to escalate, according to conversations with members of the congressional leadership who told the Washington Free Beacon that the Kim Jong Un regime could have a nuclear weapon capable of striking the United States in "only a few years."
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) confirmed that he has scheduled a vote in the House on new sanctions that will target North Korea's slave labor trade and its shipping industry, which plays a central role in ferrying illicit arms and technology to and from the country. North Korea is a major supplier of nuclear technology on the black market, particularly to Iran, which has mimicked Pyongyang's nuclear playbook.
McCarthy said that new sanctions are long overdue and can more easily win approval now that former President Barack Obama is out of office.
"This week, we will vote to increase sanctions on North Korea, targeting its shipping industry as well as those who employ North Korean slave labor abroad," the lawmaker said. "The last administration's long-practiced policy of strategic patience has made us less safe. We must increase the pressure on the Kim regime."
