9 Things To Know About The N. Korean Nuclear Crisis

At 5:29 a.m. on July 16, 1945, the U.S. military conducted the world’s first-ever nuclear bomb test, detonating a plutonium device in the remote deserts of New Mexico. That moment changed the course of human history, bringing the awesome power of global annihilation to the fingertips of man. Since then, the specter of a nuclear apocalypse has loomed over the world, striking fear in the hearts of every living soul, from Hiroshima and Nagasaki to Moscow and Washington, D.C.

With tensions high in the Western Pacific, many fear that America’s increasingly hard-line stance with Kim Jong-Un’s tyrannical regime may trigger a nuclear showdown, pitting the world’s sole superpower against the hermit kingdom run by a deranged despot.

For the most part, the Obama administration attempted to quell Pyongyang’s hostile rhetoric and routine nuclear bomb testing with diplomacy. That approach did little, if anything, to slow down North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.

Abandoning the Obama doctrine of passivity, President Trump has signaled that he may resort to military solutions if North Korea continues to provoke the United States.

This policy shift has caught the attention of Asia-Pacific leaders in Beijing, Seoul and Tokyo as the region gears up for potential military conflict.

Here are nine things you need to know about the coming North Korean nuclear crisis:

1.   Former President Bill Clinton promised that North Korea would never develop nuclear weapons. The North Koreans have conducted five nuclear tests since the U.S. struck an unenforceable, naïve deal with Pyongyang. The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro reported:

For two decades, the United States attempted to pay off North Korea to prevent them from going nuclear. The Clinton administration signed off on a framework in 1994 that ended up replacing North Korea’s nuclear power plant with light water reactor power plants – supposedly in an attempt to help North Korea develop nuclear energy without the capacity for nuclear weapons.

Here’s what Bill Clinton had to say at the time: “This agreement will help to achieve a longstanding and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula. This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region. It’s a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community… This agreement represents the first step on the road to a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. It does not rely on trust. Compliance will be certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The United States and North Korea have also agreed to ease trade restrictions and to move toward establishing liaison offices in each other’s capitals. These offices will ease North Korea‘s isolation.”

By 2002, it was clear to the world that North Korea was in fact a nuclear developer, and the Bush Administration so announced in 2003. By 2006, North Korea had tested a bomb. In other words, the United States handed the North Koreans cash and technology – and a signed basketball from Michael Jordan – in order to convince them not to go nuclear. Within a decade, North Korea had gone nuclear.

    HIS WORD”! I know that few, if any, have read the bible. In GOD’s word,
    specifically in the minor prophets, we can read tomorrows news. GOD tells us
    ALL things. GOD will not allow the use of any weapon that would permanently
    damage this earth.

    • rhondareichel

      Armageddon doesn’t sound pleasant though

      • James Brooks

        We have no choice we have to level N Korea and all the weapons they have will be forever GONE.

        • Allen Shaw

          Just how do you do this without destroying South Korea and the other nations around North Korea. Do we level Israel, they have the bomb, how about Pakistan and India and any other nation that has the nuclear bomb?

          What about the many, many US citizens in South Korea?

          T H I N K!

    What happened to OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF? Who is it now?

    Who is running the govt.? Looks like the military is.

    Looks like we are being lied to….being set up.

    Our warships streaming toward N.Korea changed course….why? Was it because Russian and Chinese ships tailed them? Then China & Russia put massive troops on that border….building hospitals on the border even. Hmmm?

    When Trump gave all authority to military commanders he abdicated his commander in chief role….WHY? Well at least he’s honest. He can take credit if they do something good but wash his hands when they start WWIII. Apparently he’s just a puppet.

    Is the King of the North mentioned in Daniel in the bible Russia or the U.S.? Looks like it’s the U.S. Gee, won’t all our preachers be surprised !

    We were warned….

    North Korea can launch a nuclear attack any time they are in the mood. What a lot of people do not seem to think about is that North Korea does not need ICBMs to launch nuclear weapons. Building or buying missiles will only attract attention. After having them, North Korea will be closely watched and that could eliminate the element of surprise.

    Nuclear weapons could be planted on Merchant Ships that could carry them and take out any of our major sea ports to include harbors in the Great Lakes. They could also be delivered in a cargo container and then shipped to any major city in the country. Commercial and private aircraft could get pretty far inland before a suicide pilot could do quite a lot of damage and cause havoc and panic. WAKE UP AMERICA!

    • Allen Shaw

      Yes, North Koreans are people to.
      So far they have only threaten to retaliate.

  • elmcqueen3

    Ahhh…Yes…the Democrats love complaining and doing nothing and then blaming it all on the Republicans…During Barack Obama’s term in office no one said Boo about Korea’s build up of a nuclear capability…And now they’re blaming the Republicans for not doing something about it…with which they will further blame Trump is he does something about it in the nature of a deterrent against Korea’s nuclear ambitions…Switch and bait tactics endorsed by the Democrats to make Republicans look bad.
