BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – North Korea said on Saturday that the U.S. missile strikes against a Syrian airfield on Friday were “an unforgivable act of aggression” that showed its decision to develop nuclear weapons was “the right choice a million times over.”

North Korea continually states that its nuclear weapon aspirations is for deterrent reasons against US aggression, as Syria has experienced.

The United States launched missile attacks against the Shayrat Airbase in rural Homs after an alleged chemical weapons attack in Idlib countryside by supposedly the Syrian government. The United States has not put forward any evidence that the Syrian government perpetrated a chemical weapon attack.

Despite being mostly isolated, North Korea considers Syria one of its few allies.

I agree…and why should just the Western countries have this technology??? The West has to accept that sovereign countries have the same rights to these weapons as they do.

Give some to a few countries and be sure to end with nuclear terrorism. Look at the shit countries like these manage to do in Syria with only introducing ATGMs, machine guns riffles ans a “little” sarin… Now imagine them with on nuclear “grenades” AKA “suitcse” nukes… Note that the 300kT warhead in ASMP-A missile only weights 45kg… 20x Hiroshima… “why should just the Western countries have this technology” => Are China, India, Pakistan and NK Western countries? Many countries signed the NPT. Another point : it’s freaking expensive, much more than i.e. signing a military assistance treaty with Russia,… Read more »

‘What do you think Saddam would have done if Osirak hadn’t be destroyed? Very likely the right thing ie: nuke israel out of the earth” => He shot a few Scuds against them in 1991. He still had huge supplies of Sarin at this time. He could have made a freaking massacre ATM, he didn’t while he didn’t hesitated to use gasses against Iran and the Kurds. Gosh, you have really have been raised into hatred of your own people! Fore sure, you’ll feel relieved of a heavy weight as soon your DNA test will have proven yourself you’re a… Read more »

Nope, Allah is a Zionist and est338Lapua is an Mossad agent pushing up fake anti-Israeli agenda so they end under attack by numbers of morons and, in the end, they can build greater Israel. He’s an Hezbollah supporter and as Ariel Sharon said “WE created Hezbollah”. Same things for Iranians, hey, not so long ago (2014), 2 Israelis were arrested after having transfered for $35M in jet fighter spare parts to Iran. LMAO, onspiracy busted, it helps the Military Industrial Complex to soak up more money from GCC. Never understood why US never attacked Iran? Israel and Iran are the… Read more »
