I See! It's Only A Crime When North Korea Does It - FORCED RELOCATION Of Jeju Island South Korea Residents Underway To Build U.S. Navy Base

H/t: Organizing Notes, Bruce K. Gagnon

Historical Note: (2007) It was 'not a crime' however, when the U.S 'looked the other way' as North Korea blatantly violated the U.N. ban on weapons transfers, by overtly yet silently allowing the sea shipment of Russian tanks, parts, and other logistics to Ethiopia...

Because those tanks were intended to be used in America's proxy war on Somalia.
"The United States allowed the arms delivery to go through in January in part because Ethiopia was in the midst of a military offensive against Islamic militias inside Somalia... [IHT via NY Times]

The South Koreans were Enraged.

JoongAng Daily

EDITORIAL, April 13, 2007 (JoongAng): It is beyond our understanding why the United States has ignored a United Nations resolution and so given tacit consent to the export of weapons by North Korea.

It is simply astonishing that the United States has seen fit to neglect such an agreement reached by the international community. It is also an absurdity that the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty, which the United States has pointed to as a basis for demanding the abolishment of North Korea's nuclear weapons, can be so easily flouted.

Pursuant to the U.N. resolution, the United States should have stopped Ethiopia from importing weapons from the North. But since the weapons would be used to fight Islamic terrorists in Somalia, Washington tacitly approved the imports.
