As most people know, there was never a peace treaty signed in the Korean conflict; and the two sides are technically still at war, even though an armistice is administered between the North and the UN Armistice Commission.
Every rogue state in the world is racing to develop and field nuclear weapons because they realize it’s the ultimate trump card, the ultimate barrier to Western pressure on human rights and dignity. With the bomb, any tin pan dictator can basically do what he wants to his people and threaten the world at will.
Sky News reported today on a conversation they had with the North Korean Ambassador to the U.K.:
North Korea is ready to launch a nuclear war if it feels threatened, the country’s ambassador to the UK has told Sky News.
In a rare interview, the senior official told us North Korea has nuclear weapons and is ready to use them.
“We are prepared,” he said. “That is why I say if a sparkle of a fire is made on the Korean peninsula, it will lead to a nuclear war.
“We don’t say empty words. We mean what we mean. It is not the United States that has a monopoly on nuclear weapons strikes.”
“So can I just be clear: you are telling me that the North Korea has the ability now to fire a nuclear missile?” I clarified.
“Any time, any time, yes.”
The problem is that North Korea is most likely serious when it utters these words. Unfortunately, the West and South Korea’s plan to contain the North’s nuclear program did not work. The North simply continued to develop the bomb while promising over and over to stop.
They simply broke their promises.
This is why the “negotiations” with Iran are so dangerous. For in a few short years, the Obama administration’s legacy will be Iran threatening the United States with destruction as well.
