Trump Intel Chief: North Korea Learned From Libya War to “Never” Give Up Nukes

Posted by M. C. on July 31, 2017

THE MEDIA IS NOW filled with headlines about North Korea’s missile test on Friday, which demonstrated that its ICBMs may be able to reach the continental U.S. What isn’t mentioned in any of these stories is how we got to this point — in particular, what Dan Coats, President Donald Trump’s Director of National Intelligence, explained last week at the Aspen Security Forum.

North Korea’s 33-year-old dictator Kim Jong-un is not crazy, said Coats. In fact, he has “some rationale backing his actions” regarding the country’s nuclear weapons. That rationale is the way the U.S. has demonstrated that North Korea must keep them to ensure “survival for his regime, survival for his country.”

Countries (N. Korea) learn that when you have nukes the US tends to let you alone.

When you are surrounded (Russia/China) or threatened by nuclear capable countries (US), you tend to want to join the club for survival sake.

Muammar Gaddafi gave up his nuclear ambitions at George W. Bush’s request. He complied and was then dispatched by Obama/Clinton…rather harshly and personally as the article describes.

Would we be here if Kim Jong-un and his father weren’t continually threatened? Would free trade instead of (always failing) embargoes have turned NK around? Too late now.

Kim Jong-un likely doesn’t want to be probed by a CIA sponsored bayonet ala Gaddafi.

How is that interventionist thing working for you?

Be seeing you
