NK is threatening SK and the US with nuclear war,
Also known as Tuesday.
NK has been threatening everyone for what...15 years straight now?
My friend Geth,
What we're watching is different. This a game where in no way resembles what his father used to make - yell and shut up and obey, yell and then shut
up and obey. Kim knows his place and he is actually outplaying the US here. He knows he can talk and do whatever he wants as long as he doesnt attack
anyone. He will pursue his goal and turn on reactors, build nuclear facilies for both weapons and energy, will talk back boldly because it is his
right as a sovereign nation, etc. As long as he doesnt attack, China will have his back. The US cant attack him unless he attacks them first. Which he
wont do. Hes waiting for the US to attack him first so he can claim a defensive stance. When it comes to defense, maybe that treaty with China does
apply, and China will defend NK in case of a US/SK first attack because its in China best interest to keep the region theirs and Kim must not lose
China's support. Of course the US knows this and is doing whatever it takes to make Kim to attack first and lose China's support - if Kim attacks
first he'll lose China support and worse, he'll probably be facing China along with the US and SK and maybe even Japan. Kim wants to be attacked -
actually, if he wants the unification, considering China's supports he needs to be attacked - it will bolster his forces a lot and give the US a run
for their money, keep Japan completely out of the equation and scare the living hell out of SK.
Regarding his nuclear program, China will not interfere - Kim is not bound by any treaty or agreement and hes free to pursue any program he wishes -
he does not have any political ties to the West so the West does not have to tell him what he should or shouldnt do. Besides, why would he listen to
the US when it comes to nuclear weapons? The US alone is home to one of the world's largest nuclear arsenals, where are the moral grounds to tell any
other country they should or shouldnt have nuclear weapons? As long as there is one nation on earth that has nuclear weapons any other nation is free
to pursue that knowledge and to invest and develop the technology necessary to build such a weapon for its own use or protection. Pretty much like
Iran or any other country on earth. This non-proliferation treaty is a farce enforced by some over selected few.
The only stupid thing Kim could really do would be to attack SK, and he is not stupid. He may be a loudmouth, but hes an educated fool and he knows
what hes doing.
But the US will not give up. They never give up. I just hope common sense prevails on this almost suicidal mexican stand-off with millions of lives at
stake... but I do feel a slight tone down. I hope I'm right.
