North Koreans hit hard by sanctions, report says

Off to the right of this column is our weekly cartoon that features the likeness of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The embassy officials categorically told the leaders that the controversial missile test was part of defence and deterrence strategy of North Korea as it has been facing the threat from the USA and its ally South Korea.

"If Trump were to give up on Chinese support in terms of containing North Korea, then there's a risk of increased trade tensions between the US and China, which could negatively impact China's overall export performance", said Julian Evans-Pritchard, China economist at Capital Economics. So far, they have shielded the Kim regime from meaningful punishment for these actions.

"The whole world is concerned, not only US people". The concert aired on North Korea's state broadcaster KRT.

The Hwasong-14 ICBM was test-fired last Tuesday and has the power to hit the U.S. states of Alaska and Hawaii, according to experts. A plurality of Vietnamese and Filipinos say the nuclear problem should be handled by deepening ties with North Korea, and in Indonesia, large shares volunteered that neither was a good strategy (18%) or said they did not know (23%).

When North Korea shot off its first-ever intercontinental ballistic missile in the early morning hours of July 4, USA military and intelligence personnel watched leader Kim Jong Un smoke cigarettes and stroll around the launchpad for a full 70 minutes, a source told The Diplomat's Ankit Panda.

For Xiao Ren, the director of the Centre for the Study of Chinese Foreign Policy at Fudan University, North Korea established the program primarily to safeguard its security. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was reported to have ordered the launch.

And a conventional or limited nuclear war against the North would most likely result in the regime unleashing the full force of its formidable army, dealing death to South Korea's military and civilian population, as well as America's troops stationed along the DMZ. Both did not have the capability to inflict damage on the US with nuclear weapons and both were on the receiving end of regime change.

I feel that when and if his country obtains the technology to drop a missile in our back yard, he will do it. That puts the missile within capability of dropping into the state of Alaska.

North Korea began its missile development program in the 1970s and tested a Scud-B ballistic missile in April 1984. Keeping Americans safe is my first priority and the first duty of our federal government. By proving it isn't interested in killing Kim, the USA hopes this would convince him to abandon its nuclear weapons program.
