    This.
    NK have nukes and missiles sufficient to give some credibility that they could threaten far and wide - most notably the US. Anyone genuinely thinking NK will be giving up their effective talisman against foreign military adventurism needs to get a serious grip.

    Security having been achieved, declaring peace in our time and saying that denuclearisation and global disarmament would be nice loses them nothing and potentially gains them big economic gains, just like the last times they've played nice.

    Lets not forget that the US (and UK, France, Russia etc) are all committed to denuclearisation and general disarmament and have been since 1968.

    If none of the NPT states that committed to denuclearisation have managed it in 50 years then you need industrial quantities of wishful thinking to believe North Korea will do.

    yep I'm sure they are
    um, yes they are. all parties there have reduced their nuclear stockpile since the end of the cold war.
    Because we all know that Trump wouldn't just walk away from a treaty.

    From February:

    The Trump administration on Friday called for the development of two new types of nuclear weapons to better deter potential adversaries, in a reassessment of the current arsenal that critics slammed as increasing the likelihood of nuclear conflict.
    The Pentagon's Nuclear Posture Review, the first since 2010, calls for a "lower-yield" option — with less powerful explosive capacity — for ballistic and cruise missiles launched from submarines.

    It also says that nuclear weapons could be used to respond to “extreme circumstances,” including non-nuclear attacks.

    Aw, just when the peace process was going so swimmingly.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/skorea-ne...192035374.html

    North Korea on Wednesday canceled a high-level meeting with South Korea and threatened to scrap a historic summit next month between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over military exercises between Seoul and Washington that Pyongyang has long claimed are invasion rehearsals.

    Pretty much everyone predicted this, nobody sane took the developments at facevalue

    NK always throws a fit over military maneuvers. Why no one had the idea to cancel them (it's not like there's anyone left not who hasn't taken part in one in the US military) escapes me.

    But hey, I take every chance to show Trump that diplomacy isn't like making real estate deals while being a friend of the mob.

    Its just NK showing the strength of their negotiating position. Especially after Trump prematurely declared himself the great and awesome bringer of peace, and now has much more to lose. This could be seen coming from lightyears away, but of course totally caught the withe house by surprise...

    This is the part where Trump slams a carrier group into NK and reveals his 8 dimensional blackjack strats, right?

    Any day now he will spring his trap and the world will be bought kicking and screaming to piece.


    By trap I mean the boy ones.


    By kicking and screaming I mean actual screaming.


    By piece I mean because we will all be dead.

    The fact that I can't tell if this is real or not frightens me.
