by the Saker:
please read carefully what
this official statement says. There are two key elements here,
first, the DPRK has successfully completed its program of nuclear
tests and ballistic missiles test and, second, the DPRK will now act
as a responsible nuclear power and never use its nuclear power unless
she is attacked. In plain English this simply means: we made
it, you could not stop us, now we are a nuclear power on par with all
the rest of them and there is nothing you can do about it. No
doubt, the Hegemony’s propaganda machine will present that as a
huge, immense, victory for Trump. In reality, it is anything
but. Truth be told, I personally doubt that the DPRK has a real
nuclear warhead or anything beyond an intermediate-range missile.
But that is neither here nor there because whatever the facts of the
matter really are, the fact that they
themselves declare that
they have real nuclear warheads and ICBMs and that nobody can do
anything about it means that they have won. Besides, you
can’t prove a negative anyway. So whether these capabilities
are real or not, the status of nuclear power claimed by the DPRK will
have to be granted to them. Thus, “Rocket Man” wins!
The Donald lost this one. ——-
