Dubai Weapon Shipment Seizure: Emirates Stop NK Weapons to Iran

Good news. Dubai and the UAE stepped up and stopped a weapons shipment to Iran from North Korea. The UAE has “reported the seizure of the [North Korean] vessel to the UN.” I wonder how long it will take before the UN orders the release and safe passage on to Tehran?

If the Emirates can stop North Korean weapons shipments, then every shipment should be stopped. In fact, North Korean leaders should be quaking in their cognac that a “seized” shipment of banned goods will bring wrath down upon them – but that’s not the way we keep people free from nuclear threats around the world. What a shame.
