We cannot learn to live with a nuclear-armed North Korea because it is a pistol aimed at our heads by the North’s dictator Kim Jong-un, China’s dictator Xi Jinping and Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin, that sooner or later will go off.
ANALYSIS/OPINION:
We cannot learn to live with a nuclear-armed North Korea because it is a pistol aimed at our heads by the North’s dictator Kim Jong-un, China’s dictator Xi Jinping and Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin, that sooner or later will go off.
The latest evidence North Korea’s nuclear missile program is being helped by Russia and China is their successful H-bomb test on Sept. 2. North Korean state media described their new thermonuclear weapon: “The H-bomb, the explosive power of which is adjustable from tens of kilotons to hundreds of kilotons, is a multifunctional thermonuclear weapon with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for superpowerful EMP attack according to strategic goals.”
From the above, we can infer North Korea’s H-bomb is not a first generation thermonuclear device but much more sophisticated, what U. S. nuclear technologists call “dial-a-yield” so the power of the weapon can be adjusted to the mission, including a setting for enhanced gamma rays to make a high altitude Super-EMP attack. This is comparable to U. S. nuclear weapons technology in the 1970s.
The demonstrated yield of North Korea’s H-bomb is reportedly estimated by the U. S. intelligence community to be 120 kilotons (160 kilotons according to Japan), or about 12-16 times more powerful than the Hiroshima A-bomb, comparable in power to two-stage H-bombs of the United States.
On September 4, North Korea released a technical paper “The EMP Might of Nuclear Weapons” accurately describing a Super-EMP nuclear weapon. This confirms warnings by the Congressional EMP Commission that North Korea has Super-EMP weapons.
In 2004, two Russian generals warned the EMP Commission that Russia’s design for a Super-EMP weapon had been “accidentally” transferred to North Korea, and due to “brain drain” Russian scientists were in North Korea helping its nuclear and missile programs.
There are many examples of technology transfers from Russia and China to North Korea, proving they have helped accelerate Pyongyang’s nuclear missile programs.
