Biden’s repeated displays of dementia or whatever it is that is currently ailing him is making us look too weak to take of ourselves, let alone any allies. North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un has clearly taken note of this as he is back to testing missiles, and they are working on their nuclear weapons program.
“A satellite image of North Korea’s Yongbyon Nuclear Research Facility acquired on March 30, 2021, shows continued activity at the radiochemistry laboratory (the facility used to reprocess spent fuel rods) and its associated thermal power plant that may indicate preparations for, or the start of, a new reprocessing campaign. This follows activity previously observed at the thermal power plant during the past four weeks. This activity, taken in combination with short-range ballistic missile and cruise missile tests since January, may all be components of a strategic political move by Kim Jong-un to continue slowly ratcheting up pressure on both the new administration of President Joe Biden and South Korean President Moon Jae-in or a combination of both.”
“Analysts with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) said the Yongbyon lab is “used to reprocess spent fuel rods to extract plutonium for use in nuclear weapons,” and that activity at the site could suggest that North Korea is in the early stages of ramping up parts of its nuclear program.”
But it looks like someone in the Biden Administration is paying attention as we are working with neighboring countries to try to put a stop to it soon.
“The United States, South Korea and Japan agreed in high-level security talks on Friday to work together to keep up pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
In a joint statement after a day of talks, new U.S. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, and his Japanese counterpart, Shigeru Kitamura, and South Korea’s national security adviser Suh Hoon reaffirmed their commitment to address the issue “through concerted trilateral cooperation towards denuclearization.”
The three countries also agreed on the need for full implementation by the international community of U.N. Security Council resolutions on North Korea, “preventing proliferation, and cooperating to strengthen deterrence and maintain peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula,” the statement said.”
We will see if Biden can get North Korea to agree to denuclearization. But I hope he brings a babysitter/translator and someone else to negotiate for us.
