The inevitability of North Korea’s nuclear weapons (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Friday, July 28, 2017, 03:49

Over the past few days, a number of North Korea watchers developed a new skill: meteorology. This newfound interest in the weather boiled down to a simple fact: Pyongyang was widely expected to test another intercontinental ballistic missile this week. For practical reasons, North Korea generally likes to conduct these tests when the sky is clear.

At the time of writing, no missile has been tested. But that may soon change — perhaps even by the time you read this.

Whenever it happens, the next test won't be a shock to analysts. Advancements in North Korea's weapons program are a fact of life. The debate about when Pyongyang would theoretically be able to hit the U.S. mainland with a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile has shifted from “if” to “when.” Diplomacy and threats seem to make little difference; at this point, we're better off just watching the weather.

In fact, a fatalism seems to have set in about the North Korean crisis. And when you consider the realities of Pyongyang's weapons program, it's not hard to see why.
