BREAKING: North Korea will not stop nuclear program until achieving parity with US

North Korean media is reporting a statement from the country’s leader Kim Jong-Un which states that Pyongyang will never cease building its nuclear programme until its capabilities and arsenal are equal to that of the United States.

This comes hours after Donald Trump announced plans to end the so-called Defense Spending Sequester which caps the amount of money the US armed forces can be given during any given financial year.

In this sense, both the US and North Korea appear to be in an open arms race. While the US is vastly ahead of North Korea in terms of nuclear firepower, the duel announcements go against the spirit of the Sino-Russian peace plan for Korea which calls for a ‘double-freeze’ on weapons build-ups among both Korean States. This includes a request that the US ceases its deliveries of THAAD missile systems to South Korea.

Earlier, South Korean President Moon Jae-in stated that if necessary his country is ready to completely destroy North Korea.

None of these statements bode well in respect of de-escalating the conflict.

More nonsense. North Korea will never have “parity” with the US’ 5-6,000 nuclear warheads. Just more bombast from NK. Kim is an idiot. He doesn’t realize that nukes are only a deterrent if you have enough of them in a deliverable form – to be a credible existential threat. NK doesn’t have that and the more he threatens, the more his REAL conventional deterrent erodes its deterrent value. Countries that think that giving up nukes means they’ll get invaded like Saddam and Gaddafi don’t realize that even with nukes those two countries would have been invaded BEFORE they actually got… Read more »

It’s people without nukes that get invaded and pulverized by the paid thugs of the Washington imperialists.

I re-read what you said. It was just as poorly thought out as the first time I read it.

When DPRK has confirmed the ability to do serious damage to the lickspittles of the south, Japan and US empire bases in the region, a state of MAD and peace will sadly be in place.

Anyway this is all about geopolitical games against China and Russia. This specific subject is moot.

Hey, not that is an example of excellent reasoning. I hope richardstevenhack can profit from it.

I bet Japan got totally turned off on any more aggression against the DPRK, with the first missile flying over them.

Apparently both North and South missile tests fly over Japan into the Pacific. It’s a worry, what will happen, if an “accident”/false flag occurs! Like I said before, MAD is a sad state to engage in international relations with.

Kim Jong-un is not an idiot. He is one of the leaders of a nuclear armed state.

Who will probably shortly be the dead leader of a disarmed nuclear armed state – like Saddam.

The main reason he is building them is because he saw what happened to Iraq and Libya. Two states that didn’t even threaten the US, which starts phony wars for phony reasons.

You have TOTALLY misunderstood the point of his comment. He is well aware that DPRK will never have parity with the US in terms of nuclear arsenal. However that means that DPRK will continue down its nuclear path as is its right ….as much right as the US has to maintain such an arsenal considering that its the only country in the world irresponsible enough to have deployed such weapons against civilian targets. There is NO chance of DPRK getting invaded. Both China AND Russia will ensure that does not happen and the US has already been warned . Don’t… Read more »

Even General MacArthur said the destruction and death of the Korean war made him sick, and he fought the Japanese for years. This is Not a war we want or need.

U.S tucked tail in Syria after Russia entered the fray…and the rank and file of the US military was giving push back about being in Syria (very small invasion) BEFORE Russia
U.S is going to bark, threaten, whine, complain about NK a lot more than they already have and just like in Syria..the outcome has already been decideed.

The US can have 20,000 nukes all it takes is 1 modern weapon well placed and the US is all over.Nukes are becoming a media weapon to bolster bravado and bank accounts the weapons of today are truly the end,the countries that have them don’t want to have them but have no choice because of the rogue state of America.

Excellent stuff, George. Re: “. . . if the US in the final days and hours decides to pull the plug on its political agreement on that issue with Russia, Russia is making no offers to let that [the US is operating illegally in Syria, but this will be tolerated as long as they are — at least to some extent — fighting ISIS.] happen.” I suggest you have already answered this: “Events there just in the past week have demonstrated that ISIS and US proxy forces melt into each other freely [west of the Euphrates, moving SDF forces south… Read more »

It seems like this country is run by a bunch of pricks. The congress and senate and the president are frigging pricks. They can’t get anything done, the congress goes on one month vacations while health benefits and tax reduction talks are supposed to be discussed and voted on. These pricks don’t give a dam what 300,000,000 people want. What a lumatic government.
