Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said Friday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that President Obama’s sanctioning of North Korea is “a farce from beginning to end.

“Now I'm not criticizing the administration, because there are no choices,” he said. “North Korea doesn't have anything, doesn’t do anything, it doesn't export anything except illegal stuff which is obviously sanctioned. It's been sanctioned up the wazoo."

Krauthammer said he believed the dangerous part of North Korea’s economy is its export of missiles and nuclear technology to the Syrian and Iranian regimes, an area in which the United States has no leverage.

"We have not had any avenue of curbing it, the only answer is to get China to sanction North Korea (and) it's never done that," he added.
