North Korean leaders have witnessed how the United States treats nonnuclear adversaries such as Serbia and Iraq. But it was the U.S.-led intervention in Libya in 2011 that underscored to Pyongyang why achieving and retaining a nuclear-weapons capability might be the only reliable way to prevent a regime-change war directed against the DPRK.
I think North Korea is well within its rights to build nuclear weapons to protect itself from this warmongering cesspool called, America. Why does America get to pick and choose which countries and nations can and cannot have nuclear weapons? Another country’s nuclear capabilities should be no concern of ours seeing as we have enough nuclear weapons to blow this planet up too many times over and yet we still have the audacity to come down hard on other countries for wanting to have the ability to fire back at US if we strike them just because we can.
Too bad Libya did not invest in developing a nuclear arsenal, perhaps Gaddafi would be alive today and Libya would not be up in flames.
The really sad thing, Shelby, is that Gaddafi DID have a nuclear arsenal though it never worked really well. The Bush administration persuaded him to give it up in 2004 – that it would help him improve his international image. It was obviously a fatal error. Thanks for commenting.
