NORTH KOREA AND THE UN....What happens if the UN refuses to approve military action against Iraq and we invade anyway? Does that prove irrevocably that the UN is indeed irrelevant, as George Bush keeps saying?

And if it does, what happens in North Korea? Iraq, for some reason, is a matter of "weeks, not months," while North Korea is a matter of slow and careful consultation with allies and the seeking of UN resolutions and sanctions. But if the UN eventually proves itself to be officially irrelevant, what happens next?

Will we continue to work with them on North Korea? Or not?
