It seems to me, North Korea has become the example for despots the world over to emulate, with their in your face nuclear and missile programs. Unlike Bashar Assad, Kim Jong Un is untouchable, unassaulted, unassailable and undamaged by the UN and West. Unlike Gaddafi Kim Jong Un sets safe in his slave nation. Unlike Bashar Assad Kim Jong Un faces no rebels armed and financed by the world powers. By developing nuclear capabilities his father has made North Korea impregnable. Now by developing the capability to deliver his nuclear weapons world wide, and make no mistake, that is exactly what the latest rocket launch did, he threatens the world with nuclear war. While the world played at name calling, Un’s father Il created a nuclear weapons capability that has established his posterity unquestioned supremacy in North Korea. The world dared not stand against him and now his son. No matter the crimes against humanity they commit against their people the world will stand aside and allow it because North Korea is nuclear armed. Such is the incentive the UN, Clinton, Bush, Obama and the European Union have created in the world. Rest assured, the lesson is not lost on the world’s despots.
Despite the name calling, North Korea forged ahead with it’s nuclear program because in the end the autocrat understood that Clinton, then Bush would do nothing of real consequence to stop them, and history has proven him right. Gaddafi however gave up his Weapons of mass destruction (WMD) program and was tortured to death by the European Union and Obama for it. Assad has no WMDs other than some outdated sarin gas and the European union and Obama are at his throat. Understand this if you get nothing else from this article, if Assad had nuclear weapons or even an effective nuclear program, like Iran does, there would be no American financed, European backed rebels threatening him, he would be safe to commit any crimes he wanted, because of the nuclear program, and every other despot on the planet knows it.
Despite what the media that calls itself unbiased is reporting about the rocket launch, inserting a satellite in circumpolar orbit doesn’t just give North Korea the capability of delivering a nuclear bomb to the US, but anywhere on the planet. A satellite in circumpolar orbit passes over every spot on the Earth every day. In other words that North Korean satellite passes over your child’s school at least once a day. If that satellite was, for example, a nuclear weapon, perhaps an electro magnetic pulse weapon (EMP). An EMP detonated in low Earth orbit over Europe would be the end of Europe. Detonated over the continental it US would result in the deaths of up to 90% of the population of the US in a year with over a billion deaths world wide from famine due to the US stopping food delivery to the rest of the world. North Korea has just become a far more dangerous potential foe then before.
Other despotic governments have watched and learned. Iran is driving full tilt to get nuclear arms to get the benefits that North Korea has gained from them, and defend against the negative results of not having nuclear capability, that Libya and Syria have shown. Iran already has launched satellites into orbit giving them the capability to deliver a nuclear warhead world wide. The psychopaths who run Iran understand, because of the historical precedent, that the European Union will not really stand in their way and now Obama has actually funded and legitimized Iran’s nuclear program. I would think it common sense, that someone who will happily strap a bomb to their own child and detonate that child in a crowded bus, is not someone who should have nuclear capability… but apparently Obama and the elite disagree.
The precedent of North Korea, Pakistan and now Iran has sent the message to dictators the world over that the door is wide open to get nuclear weapons. Not only the door is open but they better go through that door, else they might end up tortured to death by rebels, funded and backed by the US and Europe. Now the race is on. Expect psychopaths around the world to strive for nuclear capability because of the incentives the US and Europe have set up. Actions have consequences. Our leaders know this and therefore must know what the incentives their actions are creating on the planet. It is truly absurd that the only world power that is bucking the trend, forcing lunatics to get nuclear weapons, is Putin, who is a despot in his own right. Once the world’s despots have nuclear capability, how long do you think it will be before there is at least a limited nuclear exchange… or outright world wide destruction?
