    North Korea has the right to possess and test nuclear devices.

    It's being pressured not to just because it is not a US puppet (the same as Iran), whereas Israel, India, Pakistan have been allowed by the same US to further develop their nuclear arsenal.

    For your information the United States has nuclear weapons based in both South Korea and Japan, so by extension, both those two countries, hostile to North Korea, have nuclear weapons in their soil, albeit controlled by the US forces based on those two countries.

    The nuclear weapons are knows as deterrent weapons meaning if you have them you dramatically reduce the risk of being invaded by other countries as they will fear their troops being nuked.

    And the US is the country which has done most invasions into other countries for as light a reason as "to change the regime we don't want".

    Deterrent is the word. If you have nukes , and their delivery systems, you reduce the risk of being invaded, and the most likely invader nowadays in this so-called "unipolar" world is the US.

    Aluta continua.

    Mkuu JMushi, zilizopigwa testi sio nuclear missiles, bali ni underground bombs. Nuclear missiles kutupwa hewani ingekuwa tunaongea mengine saa hizi. Na walio dai bomu linafanana na la Hiroshima sio Wakorea wenyewe.

    Mkuu Urithiwetu, hiki kitu ulichokiweka kwenye nukuu kana kwamba kimesemwa na Marekani ni uongo mtupu; ni tafsiri yako wewe. Marekani haiwezi kutamka hicho kitu ulichonukuu.

    Na sio kweli kwamba wote wenye nukes ni vibaraka wa US. Kuna France na Russia na China, wanayo, na siyo vidampa wa US. Sasa, usidhani una dili na watu weupe weupe hapa kututafsiria maana ya "deterrent weapons."

    North Korea is facing further international criticism after it reportedly fired two short-range missiles off its east coast.

    It comes after the hermit state tested its second nuclear device and fired off three short-range, surface-to-air missiles from an east coast missile base at the weekend, earning it international condemnation.
    And in a move certain to compound tensions in the region, South Korea said it would join a US-led initiative to intercept ships suspected of carrying weapons of mass destruction, which Pyongyang has warned it would consider a declaration of war.

    A government source in Seoul said the North had test-fired one surface-to-air and one surface-to-ship missile off its east coast. The missiles had a range of about 80 miles.

    North Korea could also launch more short-range missiles, perhaps toward a disputed sea border with the South, South Korean government sources said.

    The UN Security Council has unanimously condemned North Korea's nuclear test, saying it was a "clear violation" of a resolution passed in 2006 after Pyongyang's first atomic test.

    A statement from the council said: "The members of the Security Council have decided to start work immediately on a Security Council resolution on this matter."

    North Korea said the trial was more powerful than the previous test in 2006 and was "aimed at strengthening its self-defence nuclear deterrent in every way".

    President Barack Obama was also critical, saying: "These actions, while not a surprise given its statements and actions to date, are a matter of grave concern to all nations."

    He added: "North Korea's attempts to develop nuclear weapons, as well as its ballistic missile program, constitute a threat to international peace and security."

    Prime Minister Gordon Brown condemned the nuclear and missile tests as "erroneous, misguided and a danger to the world".

    He said in a statement: "This act will undermine prospects for peace on the Korean peninsula and will do nothing for North Korea's security. The international community will treat North Korea as a partner if it behaves responsibly. If it does not then it can expect only renewed isolation."
    South Korea, China and Japan also spoke out against the test, maintaining it was unacceptable.

    In 2007, North Korea agreed to abandon all its nuclear programmes in six-party talks with South Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the US.
    It promised to shutdown the Yongbyon nuclear plant as part of an aid-for-disarmament deal and in response, the US removed North Korea from its terrorism blacklist.

    But the US suspended energy aid in December 2008 following a breakdown in international talks and Pyongyang's failure to verify the shutdown of its facility.

    In April, North Korea launched a rocket over northern Japan, which was widely considered to be a test of long-range missile technology.
    This prompted Tokyo to extend additional economic sanctions on the communist state and to deploy missile interceptors to the area.

    In the wake of last month's rocket launch, Japan had called for a fresh resolution by the UN Security Council to declare Pyongyang in violation of a previous resolution banning the firing of of ballistic missiles.

    Hivi Marekani na marafiki zake wanacho kiogopa kutoka kwa hawa Wakorea ni kitu gani?

    Mkorea si anafanya kwa ajili ya kujilinda kutokana na mashambulizi ya anaohisi kuwa wanaweza kuwa maadui zake... sasa hizi kelele zote ni za nini!?

    X-PASTER,

    America has committed (and is still committing) her share of
    atrocities around the globe and certainly ther are instances
    she potrays as a terrorist.

    In this case anaogopa kwamba kuna watu ashawafanyizia na
    if they get access to this technology, they will not hesitate to
    take revenge.Tuliona Sept 11 and we dont need another lesson.

    Ulimwengu wa leo ni mgumu.

    Hawa Marekani wanatengeneza Mazimwi kisha wanayakimbia. Hiyo Sept 11 wamei-create wenyewe, wasituzingue nao.

    Lakini si ndio hao wamarekani waliipiga Japan kwa kutumia baba yake na Nuclear (Atomic Bombs), sasa hilo zimwi linawanyemelea, na inavyoelekea karibu litawatafuna.

    Siku wataangusha Nuke kule Nevada, kisha watasingizia Oooh! tumepigwa na Mkorea lazima tumshikishe adabu, subiri tu, utasikia kule UN, wanapeleka waangalizi Korea, na wakisha gundua tu hakuna Nuke, Marekani huyo anapeleka majeshi... Yale yale ya Iraq, tusishangae yakajirudia kwa Style inayo fanana.

    Wanajeshi wa Marekani wako South Korea na wanailinda,North Korea wanajuwa wazi kabisa kuwa kupigana na South ni sawa na kupigana na Mmarekani. Msouth Korea anadai kuwa sasa ataanza kuzi search meli za North Korea,na North Korea wanachimba biti kuwa South wakithubutu tu basi watawalima mabomu.
    Hawa nadhani wanawatafutia wamarekani sababu nzuri tu ya kukabiliana na hali mbaya ya kiuchumi kwani vita tu ndiyo inahitajika ili kuweza kuipa marekani nguvu zaidi za kiuchumi,Taifa la marekani limejengwa na kuendelezwa kwa misingi ya vita,kwamba vita ni nzuri kwa uchumi endapo inapata sapoti ya kutosha.
    Tusubiri tuone.

    I agree with you as this was also in line with Alfred Nobel if both countries have powerful weapons there will be a respect for each other and nobody will think about invading the other.
