"This provocation underscores the need for action -- not just this afternoon at the U.N. Security Council, but in our determination to prevent the spread of these weapons."
I should probably play the "wait and see" card. Possibly, BHO will pull a rabbit out of his hat.
I suspect that the United Nations is only slightly better than no United Nations. What do you expect from an organization which had Alger Hiss involved in its formation? OK, that's historically accurate but served up as a cheap shot. However, the Security Council offers anything but security or council, e.g. Africa.
One hopes that "action" isn't as much a mixed bag as the UN Law of the Sea Convention. As Carter's stillborn second term continues to unfold, though, optimism is hard to achieve.
