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.

      • 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, France, etc…

        Never heard about René Barjavel’s “Une rose au paradis”? in the novel, someone invented the U-bomb (for Universal). It’s powerful like a nuke but very cheap to build at the point even Vatican and the CGT (biggest French trade union) have it… Guess what ends happening?

        Several countries had nukes and preferred to get rid of those in the end, the same way most of those who had sarin or VX prefered to get rid of this. Hey, guess what happens the day Qaeda, ISIS or Hamas manage to get nukes… It’s more a burden or a huge responsibility. What do you think Saddam would have done if Osirak hadn’t be destroyed? He already massively used mustard gas and Sarin against Iran, you know…

          • Ziad.: Daeshbag is a zionist clown working overtime to do poor quality comments, unable to summarize his ridiculous ideas in a few words…

          • 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 $35M in jet fighter spare parts to Iran. LMAO, onspiracy busted, it helps the Military Industrial Complex to soak up more money from GCC. Never understood why US never attacked Iran?
            Israel and Iran are the best to make monster money by selling overexpensive useless weapons systems to GCC morons, thus, bringing the petro$ back home 😆

        • 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, then we wouldnt have ISIS nor many other so called”problems”

          • ‘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 Jew 😆

            “then we wouldnt have ISIS nor many other so called”problems”
            Anyway, they bean to really mass produce warheads in 1984 but at this moment, they already had more than what was needed to make Iraq a radioactive parking lot. Now? Let’s be clear : they have what it takes for the Samson Option?
            Although, even without retaliation, the Muslim world would end tremendously punished : considering what it’d take to incinerate the whole country and the usual wind, the fallout plume would nonetheless make Amman, Damascus and Beirut areas where you’ll totally avoid to spend more than a few hours, well, it’s hard to exactly plan the results but if I consider the results of aerial explosions etc, I think Mecca will be polluted at levels about 100-200mSv/h… Plutonium has a 24,000 years half life and well, many non radioactive particle being neutron-activated, not counting shits like Cesium, Strontium etc, let me tell you you’ll avoid to spend more than 10-20min in the city wearing a HazMat before regaining some armoured vehicle with an airlock and a lot of lead… But I don’t think it may happen : IMHO, their 1st warhead, may they all go underground, would surely go to Mecca and they’ll let surely all the Muslim world understand what happened before the other warheads being coming…
            Sincerely, does your pride values that once, you will be able to curse them without bullshitting as, in a very short time, they’ll do worst than 1400 years of jihad by just killing 370 millions, in other terms, the whole ME if not MENA… But… Maybe jihad killed 370M in the end and it’ll be God’s punishment for all these murders?

            Now, problems… Do Egypt or Jordan are in trouble since they signed peace treaties? Sincerely, had I 1 or several neighbours trying to kill me in my street, sincerely? They’d better not miss on the 1st time as there wouldn’t be a 2nd occasion. Look, it’s mofos from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Arab League that, even +2 decades before Jewish Palestine became Israel, began to thrive to destroy their country. Just look, the Ben Gurion’s independence speech vowed to build good neighbourhood and constructive relations. On the next day, the combined armies of 7 countries + volunteers from many others attacked the new born country with the prez of the Arab League saying this would be a momentous massacre that would be remembered like the Crusades and the Mongolian Invasions. It was the first but not the last time. Look at your own hatred! I bet you pray several times a day to destroy Israel, all the evil comes from this ridiculous 30k km² country with 8.6M citizens and 4.5M squatters. LMAO, even Kuwait is richer! Moses moved them for 40 years in the desert and established them in the only area in the ME where there is no oil! The 1st Zionists who returned home at the end of the XIXth century, d’you know it looked at this time? A total shit hole! Now they make the desert green. You know what’d happen if PLO and Hamas managed to push them into the sea like n their wet dreams? In less than 5 years, it’d be a shithole again and it’ll end with infights forever.
            Frankly, never considered there are better things in life than wasting it in sterile hatred! Hey, your country has only the 3rd GDP/capita they manage to get. Would you all put your energy in constructive things, wouldn’t it be better? Until 1975, you were seen like the Swiss of the ME! It was before PLO began their shit, before the civil war they launched to take over the country, before the sectarian militias etc… ME needs peace and with such irrational hatred, it’ll never happen!
