    Why North Korea wants nuclear weapons

    BAKU - Most people casually dismiss the North Korean government as either crazy or insane. Even though it’s past decisions have caused widespread famine, resulted in an economic meltdown, and the personality cult surrounding Kim is nothing short of totalitarian, there is strategic thought behind the nuclear program. In fact, it may well be the most sensible thing in North Korea.

    NORTH KOREA TEST HWASONG-14 ICBM WITH RANGE OF 10,000 KM MAY REACH MAJOR U.S CITIES
    Defense Updates



    Published on Jul 30, 2017
    INTRODUCTION:

    North Korea tested intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) named HWASONG-14 on Friday that appears to have the range to hit major US cities.
    North Korea now has tested this ICBM twice in July and what is most alarming is the fact that the latest test seems to show that the Hwasong-14 missile can travel even more distance that previously thought.
    Pyongyang's state-run Korean Central News Agency said on Saturday that the test was designed to show the Hwasong-14's maximum range with a "large-sized heavy nuclear warhead".
    It added that Washington should regard the launch as a "grave warning."
    In this video, Defense Updates analyzes the latest missile test by North Korea and evaluates its implications.
    Lets get started.

    ACTUAL RANGE:

    A combination of US, South Korean and Japanese analyses of the launch from Mupyong-ni, near North Korea's border with China, shows the missile flew about 47 minutes, going 3,700 kilometers (2,300 miles) high and for a distance of 1,000 kilometers (621 miles).
    According to David Wright, a missile expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists, if the missile were fired on a flatter, standard trajectory, it would have major US cities like Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago well within its range, with possibly the ability to reach as far as New York and Boston.
    Kim Dong-yub, a defense analyst at the Institute for Far Eastern Studies at Kyungnam University in Seoul said:
    “Depending on how heavy a warhead it carries, this latest North Korean missile would easily reach the West Coast of the United States with a range of 9,000 to 10,000 kilometers,” or 5,600 to 6,200 miles. He added, “With this missile, North Korea leaves no doubt that its missile has a range that covers most of the United States.”


    NO IMPACT OF ANY PRESSURE

    There were indications earlier this week that nuclear-armed North Korea was preparing for another ballistic missile test.
    Some experts had predicted the communist nation would launch the test on Thursday to mark Victory Day, a military holiday but was delayed one day due to unfavorable weather conditions.
    Regardless, the new test represents a setback in efforts to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
    International community and U.S has been trying to compel North Korea to give up its missile and nuke programs by enforcing sanctions, but these have failed.
    China, North Korea's longtime ally, has been pressuring the regime to abandon these programs but so far has little to show for it.
    Experts say North Korea currently is known to have the capability to send missiles to all of South Korea, Japan, as well as to Guam and the Hwasong-14 is a major step augmenting its strikes capabilities.



    PARALLEL NUKE PROGRAM

    A missile is as destructive as its warhead, which is why North Korea is running missiles and nuke program in parallel.
    In total North Korea has conducted 5 nuclear tests till now.
    The first nuke test was conducted by North Korea on Oct. 8, 2006. As per the United States analysts, it had a yield of less than one kiloton of TNT.
    Blasts have become more powerful since then.
    The device tested by the North, in January 2016, had a force equivalent of 7 kilotons of TNT.
    By contrast, the device detonated on Sept 2016 looks to have had a force equivalent of 25 kilotons of TNT, according to the most analysis.

    CLOSER TO MAJOR GOAL:

    The ultimate goal is to have ICBM with a range to reach whole of US carrying nuclear warhead.
    North Korea now seems to have more or less perfected the missile technology.
    US official familiar with the latest intelligence assessment confirmed that North Korea would have a deployable solution in place by 2018.

    IMPLICATION
    It can be said that the US and international community no longer has a ticking clock, but the time has actually run out.
    North Korea has cleared the major technical hurdles and as time goes by they will refine the systems in term of accuracy, readiness and reliability.

    CONCLUSION
    North Korean state media was quick to tout the missile test as a success, with video and stills showing Kim Jong Un overseeing the launch and celebrating with the troops involved.
    Kim is quoted as saying "the whole US mainland" is now within North Korea's reach. He called Pyongyang's weapons program "a precious asset" that cannot be reversed nor replaced, according to Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
    Hours after that call, the US and South Korean military conducted a live fire exercise as a show of force in response to the missile test.
    Both militaries conducted a similar show of force, after North Korea's first test in early July.
    South Korea said on Saturday it will proceed with the deployment of 4 additional units of the THAAD anti-missile defense system.
    As Trump administration grapple with the situation with no signs of having plans of direct negotiations, there is no reason to expect a quick breakthrough.

    If there is a travel ban to North Korea, does that prevent US troops from invading?

    Why U.S. hasn't brought 'fire and fury' to N.Korea
    • By Eli Lake
    • Aug 10, 2017 Updated 17 min ago

    As the world ponders the meaning of President Donald Trump's threat of "fire and fury" on North Korea, it's worth asking why his predecessors never took those steps to stop its nuclear program.

    When Bill Clinton was confronted with the threat of North Korea's exit from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, he considered military force. But he ended up going for negotiations in what became known as the Joint Framework Agreement. The North Koreans froze their plutonium program in exchange for fuel shipments and a light water reactor from the U.S. Neither side ever fully delivered.

    Then there was George W. Bush. He didn't like North Korea. He put the nation in the original "axis of evil." On his watch, the U.S. discovered Pyongyang had a secret uranium enrichment program, in violation of the spirit of Clinton's deal. Then in 2006, North Korea tested its first nuclear device. By 2007, Bush had lifted crippling sanctions on the regime's elites and entered into new negotiations. And surprise: The North Koreans backed out of those talks at the end, too.

    By the time Barack Obama came into power, the North Koreans were back to building up their program. They perfected missiles, sunk a South Korean ship and shelled a South Korean island. The current tyrant, Kim Jong Un, ascended to power and proceeded to consolidate his position, killing his uncle and later his half brother. All the while, Obama pursued a policy of "strategic patience," aimed at not rewarding Kim's regime for its provocations and rogue behavior.

    Now Trump has inherited a mess. Not only is Kim testing ballistic missiles at an alarming rate, as The Washington Post reported this week, but also the Defense Intelligence Agency now assesses North Korea can miniaturize a nuclear warhead so that it can fit inside a missile. Game, set, match.

    So why didn't the last three presidents take out North Korea's nuclear facilities when they had the chance? The answer is Seoul, the thriving capital of South Korea. The North has enough artillery pieces within range of this metropolis to kill hundreds of thousands of people, which could very well begin a world war and throw the global economy into a tailspin.

    Past presidents have understandably feared the North would retaliate in this way. But for some today, that fear is fading. John Plumb, a former director of defense policy and strategy for Obama's National Security Council, told the Atlantic last month: "If I were the Trump administration, I would be looking at the threat to incinerate Seoul and trying to figure out how real it is. Because to me, it's become such a catchphrase, and it almost -- it starts to lose credibility. Attacking Seoul, a civilian population center, is different from attacking a remote military outpost. It's dicey, there's no doubt about it."

    Intelligence officials have told me in recent months that this threat remains very real. While there are steps the U.S. can take to mitigate the problem, such as dropping cluster munitions on the big guns, it's an imperfect and high-risk strategy. An attack on North Korea would be unpredictable and could unleash far worse on U.S. forces (which have been stationed in South Korea for more than 60 years), not to mention allies like Japan.

    All of this gets back to Trump's bluster. At this point we as Americans ought to expect more careful words from the president. At the same time, nothing Trump said was that different from the implicit threat against North Korea, or any power that threatens American cities with nuclear destruction.

    Don't get me wrong: There are few people on the planet more deserving of "fire and fury" than Kim Jong Un. But would such a strike even eliminate its nuclear program? How far is Trump willing to go? Will he order an invasion of North Korea to topple the regime? And if he does, would he commit the manpower, capital and time to stabilize the country once the Kim dynasty falls?

    According to retired Adm. William Perry, Clinton's second secretary of defense, the U.S. couldn't take out North Korea's nuclear infrastructure with military strikes, given how much it has expanded in the last 20 years. What's more, the price paid by South Koreans would be unacceptable. This is what he told a group of journalists this spring at an event sponsored by the Hoover Institution.

    It's possible that Trump is counting on his reputation as an impetuous novice -- one who Kim just might fear would roll the dice by attacking North Korea. But Trump's ultimatum allows the boy-tyrant in Pyongyang to test the president's mettle. (Already the North Korean state media has threatened Guam.) We can expect more taunts and threats in the coming days, proving Trump's threat was hollow. As hollow as past presidents' pledges to do the same.
