Ban to be next UN Secretary General

The Patriot Post has some fairly strong reservations about the new secretary general appointee for the United Nations. And, they are valid concerns.
...... picking someone from South Korea, considering recent developments regarding North Korea'’s nuclear program, is unique. Irrespective of the fact that he hails from the Korean peninsula, Ban will need to put the North at the top of his agenda. The problem is that Ban'’s track record as President Roo Moo-Hyun's foreign minister is quite poor. Ban has been effective at pursuing Roo'’s uncomfortably accommodating stance with the North, buckling like a belt in the face of Kim Jong-Il'’s provocations. Ban went so far as to state prior to the 4 July test-firing of seven long-range missiles that North Korea was merely looking to launch a civilian satellite. Nothing in North Korea is ever done for its civilians. It is a Stalinist dictatorship through and through. Ban'’s failure to realize this as South Korea'’s foreign-policy chief does not bode well for his nation. If he takes this same mentality to Turtle Bay, the UN could become even more feckless and irrelevant than it has been under Annan."
