If North Korea Is Preparing for Nuclear War, All of Asia Needs Nuclear Weapons, Says Henry Kissinger
By Carlos Ballesteros On 10/29/17 at 6:32 PM
In a recent interview with The New York Times, former Secretary of State and Cold War strategist Henry R. Kissinger warned that East Asia is racing towards nuclear proliferation.

That should terrify China. South Korea, Japan with nukes? Chinas dream of being a major power would be flushed down the toilet.
What does a man with one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel care?
The situation is already changing, whether U.S. and others let N. Korea get away with nukes or not. Either N. Korean regime goes down or nuclear proliferation in E. Asia and eventually the world. No possibility of going back to status quo.
Too evil for Satan to let him in?
Who pulled the old goat’s chain?
The idea that everyone should have nukes is a truly frightening idea. Maybe Japan but it should be tightly controlled to the extent possible.
However I believe nukes will become commonplace over time. It is extremely hard to stop it. Tough as Trump is I doubt he would invade NK to stop it. Trump is just waiting for NK to screw up so he can pounce but I think Fat Boy is smarter than he is given credit for and will be careful.
The only long term solution is to have an air-tight defensive shield for air-borne nukes and detection monitors and screening for anything coming into the country. That will be enormously expensive to implement but that is what will be needed to survive.
Anti-proliferation policy has teeth only strong enough to bite allies. Worse, those policy makers think that smile and bribe are the proper response to the worst offenders.
Nuclear proliferation was given a turbo-boost by the Obama administration of Libya and Qaddafi.
After he more or less voluntarily gave up his nuclear program, Obama and Hillary Came, Saw, Conquered and Killed.
Not much of an incentive to comply with U.S. requests and pressure for not going nuclear.
I agree. Its the same with Iran. They get nukes the entire Middle East gets them.
There are a large group of Foggy Bottom morons who have been pushing it for more than two decades. Obama, Hillary, and they are all in the same boat. These current and former officials are still around and active. U.S. based N. Korea news sites NK News and 38 North have truck load of them.
Sorry, link doesn’t work.
Tom Lehrer “Who’s next?”
Henry was the idiot who drove American Middleastern policy in the globalist direction.
The hardcore new word order turd is what he is, whether the news site is fake or not.
Give the doddering old fool his thorazine, and quit treating him like some fountain of competence.
yup yup yup
Taiwan already has nukes.
They were testing them in the early eighties.
Reagan had a meeting with them and the detonations stopped.
It was the general belief among military S2 (I was in a Marine Bn level shop in Okinawa at the time) that Reagan gave them proven designs so they would stop yanking the mainland’s chain.
If you are arguing that this particular opinion of Kissinger is wrong because he has been and is part of NWO cabal, I have to disagree. The policy of his ilk led to the current debacle. His change of heart does not exonerate his past blunders. He has been one of chief proponents to groom China into the main enemy of U.S., a shameless Chicom apologist and promoter.
I think many of you are completely ignorant of the world faced by Nixon and Kissinger, and what they achieved.
