    North Korea ballistic missile test.

    After North Korea Test, South Korea Pushes to Build Up Its Own Missiles

    SEOUL, South Korea The United States agreed to start negotiations to allow South Korea to build more powerful ballistic missiles in order to counter North Koreas fast-advancing missile technologies, the office of the Souths president said on Saturday.

    President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, long considered a dovish leader, called for arms build-up talks with Washington hours after the North launched an intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM, that experts said had a range long enough to reach the West Coast of the United States and potentially target Chicago, New York, and The White House.

    Read the rest of this report from The New York Times HERE




    Many of us in the West are profoundly distressed by the war machinations of North Korea and Kim Jong Un, and now that it has tested an ICBM that could reach America this fear is racking up greatly.

    I think that many of us consider that the despot dictator that controls North Korea is causing instability that could lead to a nuclear world war three.

    It is impossible for The West to stop this maniac short of assassinating him but we all know that China could put this crazy fool in his place if they really wanted to.

    SO, why are they NOT doing this ?

    These fools are pushing the non-proliferation treaty right out of the box.

    I don't know what is in the mind of Kim Jong Un, but he must know that by continuing to threaten the world with nuclear devices he is turning the threat onto himself and his people.

    If he tries to make a first strike attack on America or Japan or South Korea he has to run the risk that North Korea is going to be levelled as a result.

    If China does not do something to stop this despot they too must know they are risking a third world war too.

    China is trying to take control of the world by trade, buying up as much as it can, particularly of Financial institutions (HSBC is an example). It suits them to have North Korea hogging the headlines, as it masks China's dirty financial dealings.

    Well said HG, but do you not think that the Chinese, in their drive for word trade domination, might at least try to put North Korea in their place.

    Trump got a flat refusal from the Chinese when he asked them to do something about North Korea,

    The free world in particular would think much better of Communist China if they did something to close down the North Koreans, and Kim Jong Un in their crazy race to become one of the nuclear nations.

    All about The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons from Wikipedia.

    The Chinese will slap the megalomaniac down when it suits them and not before. The oriental mind set is almost totally opposed to the Western one, and they do not acknowledge that any other country may be deserving of consideration unless it also serves Chinese interest.

    Doing business with the Chinese is a minefield, as they only consider their own interest, and bargain aggressively. Chinese profit comes, first, last and always.

    Their word for outsiders translates to Foreign Devils, and they frighten their children with it even today.

    Yes HG, once again, you are right. about China and the inscrutable Chinese.

    What seems blatantly obvious to me though, is that while China wants a world that they can get full access to for trading purposes, yet they seem to not be willing to do what they could do at a stroke as far as the Nuclear Non-prolification Treaty is concerned.

    As I see it, they cannot have their cake and eat it too.

    I mean, are they willing to risk a nuclear third world war just because they do not want to do anything about their unstable North Korean ally ?

    And now, along with Russia, they have Started sanctions against NK, although I was surprised it all came so fast.

    However, NK have threatened even more escalation, so maybe the slap down is being recognised.

    HERE is the news latest from Japan about Kim Jong UN's latest sabre-rattling stupidity.

    As ALL of the UN has all at last agreed to increase sanctions on North Korea,including China and Russia, I see no reason not to hope that China is doing something quietly in the background about North Korea's nut-case dictator.
