We have recently reported on the war drums beating louder and louder.

Things are heating up again, just as last night the United Nations passed the U.S. drafted sanctions against North Korea.

The New York Times reporting massive reduction in N. Korean exports:

The resolution, intended to press North Korea to renounce its nuclear militarization, could reduce the isolated country’s already meager annual export revenue by $1 billion, or about a third of its current total.

The Hill is reporting Washington D.C.’s full-court press on the new sanctions, including President Trump’s appreciative support from China and Russia.

The White House said late Saturday that President Trump appreciates China and Russia’s help in passing increased sanctions on North Korea.

President Trump fired off a Tweet about it last night highlighting “Very Big Financial Impact!” on N. Korea:
