Well, it appears that the nation that knows something about the power of nuclear weapons in politics – North Korea – has done another nuclear explosion test. According to BBC, the test has been confirmed by US, South Korea and Russia.
Well, these folks really know what they are doing and no nonsense. I mean, you can think whatever you damn please about their country, government and political direction, but you have to give them this: they have correct ideas about sovereignty and protecting the state borders. They are correctly asserting that the only thing that can help them now that USSR is gone down the drain is the nuclear power. And I bet they do not care much for any idiotic shit like “keeping balance” or “worldwide peace”. Their finger in your face message is simple: touch us and we show you Hell on Earth. And it looks like the “world powers” believe them too well.
You see, the Nihon folks could not say anything more than “Tokyo would respond “in a responsible fashion” “. Damn they will. Tokyo jumps to the command of the US, as always. The only responsible thing Tokyo can do now is shut up and work fast on their own fleet of nuclear weapons before those US bases are wiped out in some freak accident involving nuclear (or even regular) fire power… But I digress, that’s a subject for a separate article.
What does EU say? Believe it or not, “the development was “very worrying”.” No kidding, eh? Why is it worrying for the EU? I understand if EU feels threatened by it, hell, yeah, it would be worrying but would North Korea actually threaten EU right now? Not likely. What’s actually worrying EU then? I think it is the example. The example of a country that can stay isolated and not only survive but improve their own weapons so that the enemies must stay at bay. What if other countries followed the example? What would be the so-called “peace keeping army” worth if all those “pacified” countries suddenly had nuclear fire power and were not afraid to use it?
And this is just the beginning indeed. North Korea now feels sufficiently brave to denounce any agreements that were jammed its throat before: “But the North now believes it is no longer bound by its previous bilateral agreements with the US and agreements under the six-party talks”. Hell, yeah! I do not know whether the guys there are bad or good but you must give them this: they have balls!
