Military Review

The enemy of my enemy is my friend!

60
The world information space literally "blew up" another news from North Korea: the aerospace agency of this country announced the successful launch of a booster rocket with an observation satellite on board.


The US State Department responded instantly and called it a "blatant violation of the UN resolution." Following Washington, Japan and South Korea came out with harsh criticism. Russia and China did not stand aside.

It is worth paying attention to the unprecedented harsh reaction of the White House. It is obvious to everyone that the DPRK is progressively improving means of delivering nuclear weapons.

Potential targets are primarily Japan, South Korea and even the west coast of the United States. Yet the main reason for the hysterical reaction of the Americans was their frank impotence in front of this small and poor country.

The fact is that the omnipresent West actually overslept the Korean direction. Following the collapse of the USSR, the NATO bloc began the dismemberment and liquidation of Orthodox Yugoslavia. Then they wreaked havoc and unleashed civil wars in oil-rich Iraq and Libya. Our friendly Syria put up a desperate resistance and, with the help of the Russian videoconferencing system, confused all the cards to overseas strategists. The project of Russophobic Ukraine in the medium term expects an inevitable collapse.

Meanwhile, the Korean comrades did not waste time in vain and successfully forged their nuclear shield. No matter who said anything, but the DPRK never hatched aggressive plans for Russia or China. Moreover, China is its closest ally, and Russia has always had a certain influence on this country.

Of course, at the official level, China and Russia will express their “strong condemnation”, but elementary logic tells me that somewhere deep down they will think: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend!”

    Well, finally, a normal reaction, different from "crazy Kim with a nuclear bomb." Material is a plus. I wonder if it will remain on the site or be deleted soon?

        That is what the absence of oligarchs and the fifth column means, at least this is the absence of petitioners at the Yankees embassy with white ribbons, and as a maximum, foreign and domestic policy is aimed only at the interests of the country! negative

      Limitations should be on the development of nuclear weapons and its distribution. What is now.
      But this is already regarding the DPRK overslept. Now it's too late to wave fists.
      Moreover, in the key to the spread of nuclear weapons, the first violator is the United States, which places these weapons wherever they want.
      But limiting the development and launch of media is a very disturbing factor. Today, Japan and the United States do not like the DPRK carriers, and tomorrow - Russian? And our Vostochny spaceport will cause concern? Space is still common. There are restrictions on the geostationary, but this does not apply to the ban on space programs.
      And all the observed hysteria is just an excuse to deploy missile defense in Japan and South Korea.

        reason to deploy missile defense

        absolutely right. Already more than a dozen countries that do not participate and have not signed an agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons have it in their arsenal along with ballistic missiles, these are Pakistan, Israel, India, probably the Saudis. In addition, nuclear weapons are still located at numerous American bases scattered around the world, including Turkey and Germany. But this directly contradicts the non-distribution agreement. It is incomprehensible by what side did the DPRK break something in the agreement that one allows everything and the other forbids everything, which is why everyone got excited? How can one condemn a country that is constantly threatened and provoked to conflict.
        They require the elimination of nuclear weapons and missiles, and in return I do not even offer formal security guarantees.

      Many of us still think primitively, in terms of a bipolar black and white world, the title of the article is a vivid example of this. Interestingly, if the terrorists who blew up skyscrapers in 2011 are clearly America’s enemies, and the United States is our enemy, it turns out that, from the author’s point of view, are those terrorists our friends? And also any other terrorists, waning people in Europe or the states are also our friends? Do not you think that such primitive logic will not lead to anything good? And the story with the DPRK as well.

        Who staged the attacks of September 9, 2001 (and not 2011) is still a big question. A very muddy story, with obvious beneficiaries in the person of American intelligence agencies.

          Blackmail, and in the literal sense of the word. Let us recall the many agreements of the DPRK and the USA on economic assistance in exchange for limiting the nuclear program on the principle: give money, otherwise we will make a bomb and then watch !!! Moreover, as is customary with blackmailers, every time after receiving the money, promises are not kept and the hostage is killed, i.e. the bomb is still being developed.
          You do not like the terrorist attacks in the USA in 2001, take the latest terrorist attacks in Paris. Are these terrorists your friends too?

            You are cringing again - "The coming to power of the 43rd US President Bush (junior) led to an aggravation of relations between the two countries. Light water reactors were never built, which did not prevent the United States from putting forward more and more demands against the DPRK. Bush included North Korea as a rogue state, and in October 2002, US Undersecretary of State James Kelly announced that the DPRK was enriching uranium. " So the US is a terrorist and blackmailer (and not only in relations with the DPRK).

        And who, excuse me, told you that they are the enemies of America ??? About 9/11 so many copies are broken ..... By the way, the year was 2001 ... Read at your leisure at least about tower insurance. When a wing of the Pentagon building collapsed and in a fire, 5 floors collapsed. Not a single one was killed. Only here the documentation in the accounting department has been destroyed almost all over the years. Can you forget about "primitive logic"?

      The more there are such small and non-US-armed countries armed with nuclear weapons, the more politely and calmly the United States will behave. Anticipating indignant comments about the threat to world peace and the like, I inform - in my deep conviction, the main threat to peace is the United States. And if nuclear weapons were in Cuba, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, etc., the Americans would have vowed to export their damned democracy the way they do now.

      It is necessary to look a little wider, you, comrade Flinky, on the avatar of Moscow State University represent, not huhry-muhry. Do you remember, after which negotiations on the deployment of a mattress missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic began abruptly? As an educated person, you should know that the Earth has a geoid shape, like a ball, and that the terrible Iranian missiles can fly in all directions. You probably think that the US could have stopped halfway in its insane "defense against Iran" if it weren't for the terrible Korean missiles? It's bad if such crap-like thoughts are screwed into the ears of students of Moscow State University, that's what I can say.

      Dear Comrade Flinky! Is the United States without any reason able to deploy its missile defense system in South Korea and when did something stop them? The DPRK by its actions draws part of the military resource from a potential theater of operations, which is located in Syria, Ukraine and Central Asia.

    Therefore, we did not fight with Japan in the Second World War, because we had business in Europe and we needed funds there (we fought but after). And they just want to smudge us like butter on a sandwich, everywhere a little bit, both there and there. Where do you want to strain? There or there? It’s not necessary to sit quietly here, but to do everything cunningly and talk to the DPRK (the guys hurry), or this is such a tricky game that we still don’t understand it.

    Yes, everything is simple and understandable. Because we will never pull our tail once again and look askance at our "western partners" (all are well known for many degenerators and kids in Oxford-Harvards and capitals where it is not worthy to rock the boat once again), and a small and poor country is much more consolidated by the people ideology, and if something happens, he won’t think for a long time, and small forces will cause trouble no less than a small apocalypse. I respect this people.

    A paradoxical situation. North Korea declares that it wants to explore outer space. There is no such precedent, and there is no reason to prohibit it in any country. wassat Except, of course, the DPRK.

    Interestingly, the United States agrees. is free give Kim communication satellites, remote sensing, navigation and positioning? Their companions are forbidden to let.

    Well, if the ICBM is a derivative of the launch vehicle, then who is to blame?
    Let Israel ban Shavita - does it have illegal nuclear weapons, on what basis does it build rockets? laughing


    They did it all the same: Izgail for the SGA is the owners, therefore everything is possible for them, and Sevezhnaya Kogeya is unruly and therefore very interfering with the business of the stgan. They can’t do anything. Did you think that democracy is the power of nagoda? Vi segozno wrong, democracy is the basis of Zionism.

    Why Russia somewhere deep down must think that the DPRK is the enemy of my enemy to me. In fact, between 2000 and 90, the Treaty of Friendship, Neighborhood and Cooperation has been in force between the Russian Federation and the DPRK. In addition, Russia wrote off 10% of the DPRK's debt of 40 billion, and the remaining billion is paid to the DPRK for XNUMX years. In turn, the DPRK officially recognized the legitimacy of Crimea joining Russia. But Belarus, the closest ally, said nothing. So whether our friend is the DPRK is rhetorical in character. Of course, the bone and bone in the throat of an overseas tanned guy are also what we need.

    The DPRK is not such a poor country, if it managed and created its own nuclear weapons, and for all its shortcomings, Un perfectly understands the strength of the factor of nuclear deterrence of his enemies by the presence of nuclear weapons and their delivery vehicles, this speaks of his political wisdom, no matter how much we I liked it, now the nuclear club is not an English Esquire Club, but the Koreans are hardworking people, and if they are not disturbed, they will soon achieve their prosperity, even if not in a completely democratic way (a vivid example of China), by the way, the Yankees and Japanese understand this very well , therefore, screaming about the adoption of sanctions and containment of the DPRK in its filthy policy ...
