The failure of the U.N. Security Council’s resolution on Syria was an embarrassment to the United States on two counts, according to experts at LIGNET.com. By forcing the hand of China and Russia, both of whom vetoed the resolution, the action revealed the United States as a clumsy player on the world stage. It also exposed the limited options now available for U.S. intervention in Syria. President Barack Obama has said the United States won’t intervene without the U.N.’s approval. But there’s another way an international coalition might come together.

Expert: North Korea Won’t Give Up Nukes
The problem with trying to bring North Korea to the table to talk about denuclearization is that the North Koreans aren’t the least bit interested in denuclearization, Chris Ford, a senior fellow with the Hudson Institute, tells LIGNET.com in an exclusive interview. But that might be OK, considering that the Obama administration doesn’t necessarily need progress, just for talks to continue, to avoid facing the ineluctable truth — that current U.S. policy on North Korea is bankrupt. Sooner or later, the United States must choose between two options in dealing with North Korea.

Overvalued Swiss Franc Hurting Industry
The rapid rise in value of the Swiss franc (SFR) against the euro and other major currencies in the first nine months of 2011 clobbered Swiss industrial sectors. Yet despite the Swiss National Bank’s commitment to defend a SFR1.20 to €1 floor, exchange rates between the franc and other key currencies continue to appear overvalued.
