    How did North Korea get nuclear weapons.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 02 Jan 2018, 11:24 am

    Why North Korea succeeded at getting nuclear weapons when Iraq and Libya failed.

    North Korea was considered too poor, authoritarian and vulnerable to succeed with its nuclear and missile programs.

    And yet Pyongyang has acquired advanced nuclear weapons capabilities and, at the end of November, tested an intercontinental ballistic missile.

    Why has North Korea succeeded when other countries such as Iraq and Libya have failed?

    Get the reason from The Washington Post. HERE




    That has to be a good question, when we consider that most of the people of North Korea are starving.

    I think that North Korea have been given a leg-up by China as far as this goes.

    I am sure that this technology came with a set of rules, even if it does not sound like Kim Jong-un cares about that.

    He might not be showing it, but it IS true that North Korea and it's petty little dictator are very aware off how China are thinking of them.

    Communism has failed in many countries before this and I can easily see it destroying North Korea as well.

    China has definitely had something to do with this.

    Why? I have no clue, unless they want another nuclear ally in that part of the world.

    I think it is significant that North and South Korea are fielding a joint team for the Winter Olympics. It may lead to something better, (fingers crossed.)

    I too hope so, but I worry that as long as the despot Kim Jong-un is still in power this coming together will be very little and will have ulterior motives.
