Early morning military parade held in North Korea for anniversary of ruling party

"Held a bit of a party, the 75th anniversary of the KP W, the Korean Workers Party or Communist Party of North Korea. And the Kim Jong UN used it as an opportunity to Unveil some, frankly, a surprising weapons systems, everything from a new, larger ICBM that has, as of this early this morning never been seen before. And there wasn't just one trembling down the parade way. There were several in a row. Right down to some small arms, then we didn't know the North Koreans. Had now not granted. You know, this isn't the entire North Korean army. But it's a thousands and thousands of troops representing the North Korean naval Infantry, which is they're Marines. Army border guards the whole thing off some first impressions and I'll send a link out to the unedited Fourcade 2.5 hour stream. But it's given us some insight into whether or not Corona has actually hit mirth Korea or not so thing one. Kim Jong UN is wearing a Western style suit and to be totally honest, he looks like he's lost weight. The reasoning behind that is because nobody would survive the encounter. If they came to him and said We're going to put you in a corset for 2.5 hours. Hear me out. We're gonna put you on a course it for 2.5 hours. Make you look thinner. Even his sister probably wouldn't wouldn't be down with that. It really looks like legit. He lost weight, which might give credence to did he have the cove ID four months ago or one of the five times this year he's been declared dead. Maybe there was some sickness. Besides the obvious thing, which is that he is a mother, love and fat ass on DH, the fattest man in North Korea. And I don't think That's even a debate and sew up there on the dais and the viewing stand. Of course, he had rows and rows and rows of the stone faced upper ranks of the North Korean People's Army. These are the guys in the khaki uniforms with the rose of medals. Festooning their uniform from their collarbone to their scrotum on the left side and the right side there, just so out there so awesome that they don't just wear one row one set of ribbons on there. Left chest. No, no, no, no. There that much better than everyone else on Earth. They need to rose. They should wear two suits. They're going to be wearing him down the back soon anyway, The skill with those guys is to not Crack and emotion. The only emotion acceptable is gushing tears, which on cue happened today. So Kim Jong un gave about 20 minutes speech before, he said, Unleash the amazing parade in Korea. So thing one nobody and there were about 100 luminaries, etcetera on the viewing, Stan. Nobody wearing a mask. Oh, and they were shoulder to shoulder on in the front row. Kim Jong un was flanked. Shoulder shoulder by his generals and then behind him in several rose not to. But as they say in certain military services were other senior ranking guys. No masks. No

Tensions rise after North Korea blows up liaison office

"On Tuesday north. Korea blew up a joint liaison office on its own territory. Clear the border with south. Korea this comes as relations on the peninsula have deteriorated exacerbated by cross-border propaganda, floated into the country from the south. Young has cut all communication with soul, and threatened to move troops back into the boards own the South Korean. Unification Minister says he takes full responsibility for the worsening relations and has offered his resignation well. Joining me on the line from Seoul is Timothy. Martin. WHO's The Wall Street? Journal correspondent in the city. Tim, wondering about to two thousand eighteen. There was a period of intense negotiation between the two careers. So what went wrong? Well, yeah, that was the apex of this modern approach meant on the Korean Peninsula. South Korean President Moon jae-in met with conjunction three times that year everything seemed to be moving in the right direction, but many of us can recall what happened in Illinois. last February. US and North Korea did not reach a deal on nuclear talks, and basically it's been on a downward slope since then. North Korea had basically ignored South Korea offer much of the past eighteen months. Sort of placing Moon in south, Korea and the timeout corner but in recent weeks. Kill young has reemerged quite angry. Over variety of issues and now they've taken action. So why did young blow up the Liaison Office? It was empty, so it was clearly only a symbolic move, but doesn't mean at least in the eyes of the north at any hope of future collaboration is over. Metaphor call statement to make about their belief of what Korean relations are at the moment literally sending it back to Ground Zero I, think the. Target of this is twofold one the the spokesperson. If you will for this anti South Korean campaign and violence, we saw at the Liaison Office was headed by. Jones Sister Kim Young. Has Risen in prominence within the regime. This allows her image her brand to rise within the regime. In among the North Korean people I think it also sends a broader message to South Korea. about its displeasure with where. economic assistance sanctions relief any type of deal making with the US, the north likes to to lean on south. Korea to try and do. It's bidding and I think what we saw earlier in this week is expressing some of that frustration. So what are the latest military developments from the north? They're coming in almost by the hour we've seen North Korea cutoff official communication's the hotlines with South Korea of this. We have liaison office with Korea has moved some troops closer to the border, and into some civilian posts that had been vacated as part of this twenty eighteen run-up in diplomacy between Moonen kin us, so we're seeing some Increase, heated rhetoric. From state media on North, Korea saying increasingly medicine things day by day. So how has the South responded? What's the line from moon? Yesterday we saw pretty startling about-face from the mood administration. loon in the South Korean government had been. Out stomaching the northwest behavior and tried to play the role pacifier. but yesterday they finally had enough. The North had been antagonizing them. For weeks and months, and so yeah, we saw the presidential Blue House come out and call at some of the state media remarks, rude and Ignorant The military South Korean, military say. If if the Kim regime takes any type of military action, there will be a price to pay. this has been. This is quite a stark shift in the tone from South Korean side. And what about Washington chump has skin in the game, but also has his own problems now. Is that creating a window of opportunity for Pyongyang? I think right now. From widely seen that is priorities. Is Birds do not include North Korea I think if you take a much broader view, North Korea still has tested a nuclear weapon have not launched an ICBM into the skies. That's the red line for the trump administration, so to a certain extent, this status quo where Korea's not conducting type of long range weapons. Testing, There is some comfort with that from Washington's perspective, but again for both sides, trump and Kim. Third they might only have five months or so left to to deal. Make with each other so i. think what we're seeing in terms of inter-korean tensions. This could be part of a much broader play to try and move North Korea higher up the priority list in the White House.

Kim Says North Korea Will Unveil a 'New Strategic Weapon'

"North Korean leader Kim Jong un is warning his country will introduce a new strategic weapons soon and he says the scope of north Korea's nuclear deterrent will depend on the US the state news agency reported Kim's remarks just ahead of his scheduled new year's day dress and Pierce Anthony kun is following this from Seoul South Korea Hey there Anthony hi Mary Louise so what exactly is Kim Jong and sang at least according to this early read out from state media and how does it differ from what we've heard from him before the Korean central news agency is running remarks that he apparently made at a party planning which is been going on in Pyongyang over the past four days KCNA says that Kim Jong un warned of shocking action by his country that North Korea would unveil this new strategic weapon and continue to develop these weapons and less the U. S. drops its hostile policies then he said to what extent North Korea develops and will depend on the U. S. is attitude and if the US keeps on stalling and gathering and talks in these talks are just gonna drag on it sounds very provocative but I do not hear any doors slamming shut on negotiations at this point he's been threatening to take make a total break you know completely cut off negotiations with the US we're not seeing that here yet he seems to be hedging his bets a bit now and of course we have no idea what this new strategic weapon might be or how soon it might be introduced right how does this fit in with the whole Christmas gift thing North Korea was promising a Christmas gift by the end of the year if the trump administration didn't resume nuclear talks is is is this the gift the gift can be construed to and you know to be whatever one thinks it is that message was I think taken too literally by their by the media and by the public basically North Korea was saying you know what what gift you get in your stocking depends on if you're an ID or your nice I mean people automatically assumed the worst eight a nuclear tipped missile or something well but North Korea has been making advances with its rocket programs with its solid fuel rockets with its this submarine launched missiles all without disturbing Donald Trump who at president trump said was not concerned with these things to so they don't have to go that far they don't have to test an ICBM and so I think people were overly concerned did I hear you right though saying that that Kim is threatening negotiations may drag out and be prolonged that's may be good news some kind of at least he's talking about negotiations yes it it suggests that perhaps this is all a bargaining tactic because for months now since his address last year he's been threatening to give up on talks completely right he's been indicating that you know North Korea is not getting out of these getting anything out of these at the U. S. in north Korea's positions are too far apart that the US is been making unreasonable demands for North Korea to disarm you'd unilaterally so so far is it it seems that time is just more pressure tactics do we know antennae to what extent Kim Jong UN's calculations are factoring in that the US is heading into an election year tomorrow and Kim's negotiating partner has been president trump nobody knows whether he will be president after Nova after you know the November elections and and take a whoever wins and takes over in January twenty twenty twenty you can with that that is a very important part of their calculations certainly someone like president trump who is willing to make a deal with Sam was willing to engage with Sam is someone who's preferable to someone who's not and so they will probably if they think that the Senate will exonerate him that he will stay in office then they will continue to leave that door open for last minute concessions by the U. S. as in here's Anthony kun and soul where he's preparing to watch Kim jong-un's new year's address so I expect will be speaking again before to hear snatches done thank you Anthony you bet thank you

"Houghton the title story. Nuking the moon is one of several schemes involving nuclear weapons that you describe in the book. Let's start with the title win, though. And then we'll go to some of the other. So somebody had an idea about exploding nuclear bomb on the moon. Why? Well, right in the wake of Sputnik, and the launch of Sputnik, really freaked. Everybody out this was nineteen fifty seven and not only was problematic because but Nick was launched into space. On top of what would potentially at one point launch ICBM's to the United But also demonstrated something that. A much bigger level was was real issue for the United States, and that was the Soviet actually passed up in a very important scientific and technology field in that space. And we had played the lead in science and technology for the vast majority of century and certainly over the Soviets who were seen as Jerry backward up until this point in now the Soviets had beaten us Enron game. So the United States military decided it needed something big needed something significant needed something that would show the world that we were really the best kid on the block. It was Soviet launch of Sputnik was an anomaly, that it was a hiccup in the larger space race. And so the idea was, let's create a demonstration of American power. The whole world could see all at once and what better than the detonate a large yield thermonuclear weapon on the moon. Because in the whole world could watch in awe in marvel at the power of the United States. Well, I mean. Who stopped it that somebody go? Hey raise their hand and go. This is a really bad idea because. The funny thing is this is one of those very honest about this in the book. I don't pretend to know the answer to that question. And this is one of those wonderful historical anomalies where we're not sure not really satisfied with what I found, there's a lot of people after the fact.

Two for the show: Trump meets Kim

"Starting tomorrow in Vietnam. North Korea's leader Kim Jong Hoon will meet with President Donald Trump for a second time. We're going to have a very interesting two and a half days in Vietnam. And we have a chance for the total de nuclearization of an area of the world that was very dangerous that may sound like a grand and concrete ambition, but there's some confusion as to what total denuclearisation really means. It seems that since the pair I met in Singapore last June. Mr. Trump has lowered his sights of it yesterday. He said he was not in a rush to denuclearization as long as North Korea. Does no more weapons testing. How much diplomatic progress has been made since that Singapore summit, and what the two sides expect to achieve this time around Kim to Donald Trump pledge to establish a PanAm peace regime on the Korean peninsula and to leave the fold you. Nuclearization of the peninsula, but they didn't really agree on what that meant for the past few months progress on any of those goals has been hampered by the fact that they haven't been able to agree on definitions of any of those things are sold bureau chief, Lena Schipper is in Vietnam ahead of the summit. Lena. What's the mood like in Vietnam? Well from what I could see on the road and from the airport. Everybody is extremely excited. This Vietnamese government we should say extremely excited. There are lots of American North Korean flags lining the road. They're all sorts of LED displays saying Hello. Welcome to noise such peace. So that can effort even though they didn't have very much time to Pat, what about your sort of home bureau, what what has the feeling in in Seoul. And so the mood is much less excited than it was before the Singapore. Some of the before Singaple you had the the to inter-korean summits that people very moved buying South Korea because you had. Kim's shaking hands across the dividing line in the demilitarized in the board of between North Korean South Korean people was very brilliant and hopeful and this time the mood was in is a lot more subdued. I think people have much lower expectations than they did in the run-up syncopal. Not very much as happened for few months there. The it's more wait-and-see. I think than it was. Some big promises were made at the last meeting, but since then not much as happened to fulfil them. What should the world expect this time around? I didn't think we should expect too much. Edward car is the economists deputy editor, but we have to see more than we saw from Singapore, which is really just a sort of handshake and a smile, so their various things that people are talking about one is an opening of liaison offices at the moment. There's no formal diplomatic contacts. There could be an opening of liaison offices in each other's capitals. It may be that North Korea is willing to shutdown temporarily or permanently its Yongbyon react to where a lot of immunity materials being created. It may be that they'll allow the inspection of its test site, which it said it's closing descend like significant Justice, but they're really less significant than they they see one high profile North Korean Coldham, like painting an old car for resale. These are really. Decrepit places 'institutions at all particularly useful to the north again on the other side in old even to get that far the United States may have to relax some sanctions. Now, this is a long way from eliminating the North Korean nuclear threat. But it is a movement of of some sort that is the the pointed question, do you believe that Mr Kim would ever completely denuclearize? I think it's unlikely, but he doesn't really have to listen to me, both America's intelligence services and more recently senior military commander in Asia. Have both said they think it's unlikely that North Korea will give up all its nuclear weapons. Their assessments is much more likely that careers willing to give up some weapons in exchange for a relaxation of sanctions, a recognition by the United States of the Kim regime, but Trump doesn't agree with that. And he called his security services naive and told them that they were totally wrong. And. There's a great deal to be had with North Korea, which he thinks has the opportunity become one of the fastest growing economies in the world. If only they tried so the discussion of denuclearization that came about during the Singapore meeting. What exactly does that mean? Well, I think that's a big problem because each side means different things by complete DeLuca is Asian the Americans made getting rid of all North Korea's nuclear weapons in a verifiable fashion. The North Koreans. We think mean getting rid of American troops as well as their own weapon. So it means getting rid of the entire threat to both career, which they would argue is the result of having US troops in South Korea protected by the US nuclear umbrella. So both sides in Singapore were able to agree on this formula because it meant fundamentally different things to each of them that at some points going to have to be resolved. This seems like a repeat of a situation the world seen before diplomatic attempts that result in North Korea getting concessions, but the west not getting the security that. Angling for that's possible. Certainly it's what many people think, but there is a difference. This time Kim Jong relatively young man around thirty would hope to have many decades in power. He has to think about what's what's the future? How can he survive for decades in power in lessee has economic growth? That's Mr. Kim's guarantee of maintaining power over decades. Yes. I mean, the economy is small and not doing terribly. Well, it'd be a long time before the economy can finance huge weapons expenditure. Even now devotes a massive show GDP to buy weapons, but it's clear that it's the technological level is conventional weapons is pretty rudimentary. So it depends to defend itself against the highly sophisticated weapons of his enemies all who thinks is enemies in in the region and the United States the way it defends itself against those visted weapons is with the nuclear deterrent will quite I mean, how do we escape the feeling that North Korea is? Getting more and more of it what it wants. But never any moves on on denuclearization. I think that's a hard question to answer. One thing that has been gained is that the haven't been more tests. So there's some feeling that for as long as north doesn't test than it's becoming slightly less dangerous is not completing the miniaturization of the warhead one hopes. And so there's a there's a feeling that perhaps. It's less dangerous if it's not testing, that's that's kind of some gain that the rest of the world is getting. But you're right. They have to think quite hard about how much they're willing to relax sanctions without seeing really concrete steps towards denuclearization. And the thing that's really key. I think some point the north is going to have to come up with a complete inventory of everything that it has. And we, you know, you'll know that it serious when the north has come out with his infantry Tillett does with just dancing around. Really? I mean, there is some sense that perhaps this is perhaps a bit of theater on. On both parts right on on Mr Kim, looking to to be seen to be getting concessions from the west Mr. Trump being seen to be a, you know tackling extremely thorny longstanding problem of diplomacy as it just the what is he's to make fun of some bits of it. The Trumpian tweets and of Trump's Egan's to be nominated for the Nobel peace prize. But I think there's something very serious at St. to the first of these is the north Trump was warned was a growing threat when he was coming into office. I and we've seen the cessation of tests. And that's something that's really worth having the second is that it's unacceptable to have North Korea able to hit the United States with a nuclear armed ICBM. No, president can stand for that. And so this something deadly serious here as well as the kind of grandstanding and the style in which Trump does. That's very Trumpian. But he is grappling with a fundamentally important issue for the security, nited states and for the security of the entire part of Asia.

"I mean for -solutely when he's making these threats about fire and fury and telling dense secretary of State Rex Tillerson. The diplomacy with waste of time. As North Korea was testing, all of these capabilities and reasonably worried that the US might try to take him or his force out. Adding kerosene to the fire wasn't helpful and raised the temperature. And that was Trump's doing so contrary to Trump's messaging as much as North Korea has backed off the testing they've never promised to denuclearize without the US reciprocating. So what exactly has been achieved in this Meson San of rapprochement between the US and North Korea. So I do think it's it's plausible. And I think it's actually probable the North Korea doesn't need to test in order to have a plausibly reliable ICBM and nuclear weapons capability against the US homeland. But there are certain things that they wanna perfect in their systems were testing might help them. So not testing is. Actually, you know that it's it's not nothing. But it's certainly the case that Kim Jong in North Korea has not slowed down production fissile material, they were still maintaining missile bases. They never said they wouldn't they're still producing nuclear weapons and ICBM's. In a guest of this point about what the committed to North Korea isn't deceiving. Anybody you know, they never committed to giving up their nuclear weapons, there's no agreement from the Singapore summit in which North Korea concrete, we agreed to certain steps other than dismantling test sites, but that isn't dismantling production facilities, will let's Nell is down because I feel were kind of circling around on in Neville conclusion here, am I right and saying that under Trump the US has basically given up demanding North Korea give up its nuclear weapons, and now we're just learning to live with a nuclear arm, North Korea. I think that's your assessment is fair that Trump is basically decided that he you know, we can maintain a long term goal of or Korean disarmament denuclearization. But in the short term, we have to live with it. And if we can achieve a slowdown in the production of fissile material caps on nuclear weapons, and certainly long range ballistic missiles, that's not nothing right now and very few states have agreed to that art the questions whether there's enough time between now and the summit the end of the month to hammer out the deal. Tales because for the summit to be worthwhile for the United States. We needed agreement to test concrete as possible to avoid loopholes that North Korea can walk through right now. The loopholes all the declarations agreements are so big you could drive in ICBM tell through it. So we want an agreement to be extremely concrete. The North Koreans for the agreement to be worthwhile. Want to be as big as possible. Vivid Narang at MIT. Thanks very much. Appreciate it. Thank you, sir. We often turn to New Yorker staff writer, Susan Glasser to get a perspective on how the rest of the world views the US happy day after state of the union season. Well, thank you. We just heard from in Narang at MIT and President Trump sounded upbeat when it came to the prospect of negotiations with North Korea. But when Trump described as relations with Iran, the contrast was pretty stark, my administration has acted decisively to confront the world's leading state sponsor of terror the radical regime in Iran. It is a radical. We Jim they do bad bad things to ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disasters Iran nuclear deal. Susan glasser. How does it sound to America's allies in the rest of the world, especially in contrast to his warm feelings and coziness with North Korea and Kim Jong UN exit very bifurcated foreign policy, right? It's very hard to create one unified global strategy out of the disparate threads of Trumpism. And I think that's that's one of the problems is that we're always trying to project a doctrine onto what is really a series of both individual approaches.

And so I'm going to back off on informing you, but if you want to you can just do a Google search for disable alerts IOS, Android, you know, whatever it's actually pretty simple. But anyway, I'll get to the Russia. China thing let's kind of a deal. But I I guess this is a lot more serious than than I thought it is. It is a it's a done deal here. It's going to happen on Thursday, the very first presidential alert. The Trump administration is going to send all US cellphones. Attest alert on Thursday. The Trump administration will send a message to all US cell phones on Thursday to test a previously unused alert system that aims to warn the public about national emergencies. The message will bear the headline presidential alert the Federal Emergency Management agency or fee Ma said in a statement this week the phones will make loud tone and have a special vibration said FEMA, which will send the alert the test message, which will be at two eighteen PM eastern daylight time that would be eleven eighteen AM Pacific standard time in Los Angeles on Thursday at eleven eighteen AM, you will get a message were they super special vibration, and it will read quote all caps. This is a test. The normal case of the national wireless. Emergency alert system. No action is needed close quote. The test has been scheduled to ensure that the alert system would work in the event of national emergency US cellphone users will not be able to opt out so start the freaking out at this point. I you know, that the people from the far left and the far-right are gonna this is red meat. This is absolute red meat. And like I said the back story here is that. This debate took place in the fifties. And the sixties about should we have a national A-Bomb alert. Should there be one day just like they did in the Soviet Union, and they do in China till this day? Should it be one day? Everybody goes into a bunker. They they find out where the nearest bunker the workplace or they're tiny dreary little apartment in Moscow is and all that we never did that never did. Because it it the in the end behind closed doors between the Pentagon and President Eisenhower. The the whole thing was what's the point? There used to be you can still see to this day around Los Angeles that that upside down pyramid that gold upside down pyramid. And it says CD civil defense. Civil defence used to be a big deal. There were there were you had blocked captains and things like that was sort of an outgrowth World War Two. And then it went away for a long time. It's still maintain. Paned? There were these bunkers, and they had long term storage for fresh water and all this, but you know, no Cold War anymore since Ninety-one ish. Decreased nuclear threat, we really haven't recharge civil defense. We haven't worked out the civil defense muscle. And part of the reason like I say was because the powers that be said is it worth the conspiracy theorists in the panic? You know, what are we getting out of this? If we did this it would be expensive people would take a hours off from work in. What what really is is the purpose. What are we getting out of it? So we never did that. And then like I say we also for the same reason the the Russians sent. People at their workplaces and at homes, this this vitamin called potassium iodate because it can it helps people in the aftermath of a nuclear war shed radiation that they might be absorbed. We never did it because there is a vocal tiny minority that starts screaming. What does the government know? How come? They're not telling us, they must know something. No one would just do this. And that and that's the reason. And by the way, you you want the latest evidence of that. Why is the FBI taken over that solar observatory in Albuquerque New Mexico outside of Holloman Air Force, but we'll get to that a little later. But that's absolutely this evidence of that FEMA camps. Remember those FEMA camps. So the president is going to do this for the first time ever. He's ordered at FEMA is going to do it for the first time ever on Thursday. You cannot opt out of it. And between now. And then you you watch everything from. From. I'm thinking of I'm trying to think of some very far left websites. Daily Cho's up in the bay area. Huge huge liberal website. That this is Trump's abuse of power. He must know something. And also, why would he be doing this? If he didn't intend to go to nuclear war with the North Koreans point in fact, if if an ICBM if they wash on fifteen or forty of them one of them with an actual nuke at thirty nine of them decoys they were launched from North Korea on a ballistic path towards the United States. You would be getting that presidential alert. If as long as it's somewhere on the laminate as long as someone somewhere said, oh, yeah. That's that's right thing. Number twelve alert the American people, but but this is the part where when you war game at and we're talking about a missile with a forty five minute time of flight to the east coast and about a thirty nine minute time of flight here, the west coast, and in the they go through all the procedures to retaliate and the whole thing. What would you be doing? I mean, you got you. You would get that alert. And by the way, just like a weather alert or an amber alert, it's not just a tone at center tone, and it can send an audio message. Some if you're driving down the seven ten to insert name of freeway here in Los Angeles area and you hear a tone. You've never heard and you can't override it. You cannot meet your phone, this overrides, your settings and a vibration, you've never heard you're you're gonna feel it felt you're gonna feel it on Thursday. And then a recorded voice of the president comes on saying an impending nuclear attack is going is targeting the California coastal cities of San Diego, Los Angeles. And San Francisco we may not even get the the current emergency broadcast system alert yet on that. But but part of the war gaming on this is why would we send that message? What are you gonna do? What would you do pull over and get under an overpass? Something mean, what would you do? What what what good is knowing? You call and say so long love you, man. But that's the other problem. You know, what would go down a second after that presidential alert the cell system. So my bold prediction eleven eighteen AM on Thursday. The first presidential alert is going to be

Have. Been, made there's nobody in this, administration, starry eyed about the prospects? Of North Korea actually denuclearizing but I think what's going on now is that the.

You still, have strong that puts the pressure on the aims but during the last time we had a dollar crisis again fundamentally they're in better shape, than they would so I'm not as negative I roll but they certainly watch points you're looking at and they relevant are, you bearish on the you want I mean? We've seen, quite a bit of depreciation here over the last several weeks, in particular Friday when we hit six ninety one against the dollar. And then we had to the PBOC, kind of imposing.

"If you are a fan of the show, what we've been talking about for months and sort of the ghoulish subtext or the of your joke at the outset of the spot gas, which is about, you know, the your book, becoming reality. Yeah. I mean. I mean, it's it's the mismatch, an expectation via public rhetoric on the US I'd versus what's actually happening in North Korea. Yeah. Well, you know, much like some of my colleagues who have been pointing these things out and and we do so. As academics like I'm tired of being like attacked for being like against negotiations because I am not against the Goshi -ation like because actually very frustrating because you know. Like one, it's not my job to make excuses for the North Koreans if they're building ICBM's and that's true. I'm gonna say it like I want there to be negotiations, but like I'm not going to like. I'm not gonna lie about what the North Koreans are doing in order to make that more palatable. But I think at a broader and deeper level, as I've said from the beginning, I am very worried that the incompetent nature of this diplomatic effort will fail because North Korea is not interested in giving up nuclear weapons. I, it's interesting. I am having trouble getting this publish as quote. We'll see if anybody bites, but like they want the Israel deal like they want North Korea wants to keep the bomb, but like make a deal with us about, you know, reducing how much they talk about not doing big tests, not showing it off. You know, basically having gotten to the point where they have this capability, putting it back in the basement, and then I'll saying like, fine. Which is not a crazy thing for them to want because we've already given another country that deal. And some extent we kind of given the same deal to India. I mean, obviously they're not quite as OPEC. But like if if this proceeds as the administration says, which is that they're not willing to consider an Israel or India like deal that they actually are going to insist on denuclearization. Then this process is going to collapse and I am deathly afraid that when it collapses, not because there was no deal to be had, but because we insisted on the one deal, we couldn't get. That then this process is going to get turned over to Bolton. Right and Bolton is going to say, we tried it your way and it didn't work. And now we have to try it my way. And so it's so important to me to make clear that this is not our way with this is not real diplomacy. This is not diplomacy that can succeed. And so when it fails, it does not discredit diplomacy and it certainly does not make military action a good idea because it's still a dumb fucking idea. Yeah. I mean, just picking up on that diplomatic threat is like we sort of like if you want to. Resolve this issue and we've talked about before, but more about the leap day deal. And then in some respects about the Iran issue is like, what? If it isn't SNL v you? What? If what? If they want to paint this thing white and turned into Salvi, it'll be a terrible satellite launch vehicle, but is that a diplomatic way out of this? That is something that should be acceptable?.

"I e people going to work have not changed despite of all the concurrent diplomatic goings on between the United States and the DPRK. Yeah, that's right. And you know, like not surprising, right? Because although the North Koreans have in one statement used a word that would suggest that they would stop ICBM production. We had a big discussion here about what that word actually meant in Korean, whether it met production or whether it meant development, you know, that's not necessarily that's not in writing. You know, that was a thing that, like Kim said to Trump and then North Korea sort of repeated in the context of it being deal. That was, you know, in real jeopardy. And you know the North Koreans, they were gonna take down the test stand at, so, hey, which will do a different pod on as a way to verify the end of production. But of course, that doesn't verify the end of production with that verifies the end testing. So we were not. We were. I mean, we have been watching this facility. We saw the trucks there all the time. And so you know, privately, we were thinking to ourselves, well, you know, I don't see any evidence at this facility has been shut down. And then when Jobe call with his story, which he could have written without us. We were able to say, yeah, I mean, that seems plausible that it consistent with what we see. Yeah. And then you know, we should talk about that a little bit, you know? Because they do mention the thing that jumped out at me when I read it is that they were the defendant of mention of the Wassong fifteen and what I was hinting early in my comments is like. In my use of the word wiggle, you know is, are they trying to do something different with the Wassong fifteen to try maybe circumvent definitions to continue to to to break out from what? What I would call more or less test moratorium. Or are they actually just continuing to produce Wahdan fifteen? And those questions, I just don't have the answers to and then wonder what you think about that. Well, so on the open source side, we can't tell. You know, we can't tell what's it could be a space launcher. It could be a Wassong fifteen. We've seen the Wassong fourteen built there. So you know, we don't really have the ability to sift through what sort of missile. I, I think the Reuters report implied that it wasn't like they had synthetic aperture radar in could like estimate the size of the missile inside the building. It's more that they saw a trailer that they associated with the fifteen, I guess, as opposed to fourteen. We don't. We're kind of trying to stand up a similar analytic capability now that we have a ton of photographs of the site, but I'm just not in a position to make that that kind of judgment. So you know, from our perspective kinda doesn't matter because. A real agreement them to stop producing ICBM's would have to result in a verifiable set of constraints on this facility, and there are no constraints on the facility, and it continues to be active, and, and so you know. As far as I'm concerned, it's continuing to turn out stuff and I don't really care if they're space launchers or ICBM's. It's up to the Trump administration if they plan to strike a deal to strike a deal, have it well defined and then put in place, whatever kind of vacation arrangements one's gonna need. So yeah, I can't say on the open source, whether it's Wahdan fifteen or fourteen or space launcher kind of hoping it's going to be Wassong fifteen point, painted white, you know, with with with the NADA logo on the side which is their their space launch entity. Right. 'cause I just wanna watch. I just wanna to watch, you know, Kim Jong UN be like what it's painted wide. It says on nine right on the side. What's your problem? We've literally been advertising on on nine for years now. Yeah, I see what your problem is. It's white. Missiles are green. They wanna get into that lucrative low cost cube set launching market. That's what I think they wanna do. You guys are always on this great planet is we want to. We would have put up some satellites. That's right. But like we zoom out clearly with these leaks is I think you said it right is that there's a new national tells us estimate the national intelligence estimate is more or less reaffirming..

"And we've gone from dropping them from planes to mounting them on cruise, missiles, and ICBM's intercontinental ballistic missiles. And of course, you know, these, these weapons now travel under their own power at a certain point anyway, and you know the the ICBM's can they actually leave the atmosphere and reentered the atmosphere, they they can travel very, very long distances that way, and we, we wouldn't really be able to to accomplish that if we hadn't moved to fusion method where we could be so efficient with the way that we eliminate the existence of other people on the planet, I hate to put it that way. But you know, ultimately, even though we're talking about something that's really scientific, the application of this is absolutely horrifying. Yes, but it's no to get away from that, but the, yeah, because if if we hadn't done that, if we hadn't come up with the fusion process, then it would be much less efficient and we might not have the option of putting something on a missile because it would the payload could be too great for for a missile to be practical. Because at that point you would have to build a missile that would be able to carry enough fuel so that could propel both the missile itself and the payload to wherever it is you're going to send it and it could just become a matter of scale and and it just would not be it would be possible, but not practical right by making it way more efficient. We can now put it on top of lots of stuff including, you know, not just missiles, but weapons of words submarines. I mean, that's all sorts of stuff. Right? Sure. So terrifying in a way, but. We we have. We have signed to thank for it the next time you see that guy. Well, one of the things that I wanted to mention too, and we don't have to get into it in great depth because we're, we're getting there as far as time goes, but is the testing of these. These weapons. Traditionally, of course, as Jonathan mentioned earlier in the very very early days before they had been actually used scientists wanted to test them to to find out if it was even possible to make the weapons of mass destruction that they envisioned to to to see exactly what it would do, how well it would work. So they did all this testing outside and above ground. Now they've a lot of a lot of cases they've done live done tests pretty much an all sorts of forms. I mean, they still do them outside, but in a lot of cases now they weapons engineers do this underground in an attempt to contain the reaction. Of course, although it a nuclear reaction can produce such force. That it can vaporize large amounts of rock. They have to be very careful where they do this. You know, for a long time, many governments around the world would use islands to to test their their weapons places that they felt were somewhat unoccupied and for, for example. Well, actually, that inspired the Godzilla series, yes, movies where they a lizard was irradiated on an island where it's a great series of documentaries documentaries, where the the, the, the one, the one lizard who was radiated by this. This nuclear explosion turns into God's will not, you know, all of the other animals that happened to be living there. He got just the right amount of apparently they've tested weapons underwater, you know in space, but people are gradually moving to computer testing wish allows scientists to get much better. Idea of how things might work without having to actually blow something up, actually blow something up and create the environmental conditions there, the fallout and reactions that would follow, and they've found that this can be actually beneficial. I was reading an article. I, I believe it was in the Washington Post. It was saying that computer modeling had allowed engineers to discover problems that they hadn't realized existed with weapons system that they built and prevented it from becoming. You know, they re engineered the weapons that were in existence because there was the possibility that it may not that may cause problems in wouldn't be stable, and it's it's interesting, but of course they've found out through testing that that fall out can travel through air currents and water. And I think that's one of the things that..

"Infinitely long lived where you're trading small incremental things for small incremental things rather than really saying within a year we're going to move towards you know some very significant actions on the part of all the parties not just the north korean mira what what is the wind set look like and what does the law set look like for you would be a deal that is basically a barbell of fairly superficial nuclear and missile related concessions by kim coupled with an ill defined promise to denuclearize an indefinite future so winning saying ill defined or rather superficial concessions i point to the fact that he has already signaled that he may be willing to stop testing icbm's right i think there's a really good chance that we come out of this summit with a promise like him to stop staying advancing icbm program which would count as a wing if you are trump and you know if you are the united states but if that is all that he conceded to that was material would actually have the unintended consequence of decoupling united states from its allies as until a we accept a confession that is good for us limiting the icbm program before it's come to full for wishing and kim has a reliable deliverable icbm but we get almost nothing that is of material consequence to our outlets as i said before coupled with indefinite promised to do grind so as devastating something that could drag out for years the does not have a clean road map attached to it that's what a bad deal looks like to me decoupling plus no clear way to get to the ultimate goal a good deal looks like something that number one from a process perspective tells us how we're gonna get from this very showy presidential summit.

"The prospect of north korea getting a workable icbm with a nuclear warhead is worse than the prospect of of war on so i mean i spoke to people inside the administration told me that they said we will not allow them to have a working icpm not going to happen and we will go to war if if we have to so short of that what what can you do you can make a deal and so the the plan and i think this is this is what tillerson has been working very hard on is to squeeze the north koreans and there's basically one way disagrees squeezing north koreans and that's to squeeze china to squeeze the north koreans in that it because the the the chinese economy is kind of or it's it's the main it's the only lever really two to pressure the north koreans and so that the chinese have been very reluctant to do that there for a lot of reasons i mean the main one is they don't want to have our the north korean state collapse on their on their borders through terrified of that they don't want north korea to have the nuclear weapon and i think any more than we do but said so that's that's the challenge right now but i think it's also the the one means that the white house sees to make a deal his is working with china and math that's what tillerson has been trying to do so he's been in a flying to china he's made several trips out there and he's pushing them we have channels open to the north korean leadership and so you know to get back to president trump's so at the same time that you know the diplomats are trying to make a deal to stave off war the president is sending out these tweet saying i'm gonna you know going to annihilate north korea etc and i don't think there's any calculation evolved them out i think the you know the president is just you know firing.

"And when we're actually saying we can't live with the north korean icbm that potentially could threaten the united states and therefore based on what senator graham said we would opt for aggressive action on the korean peninsula that would almost certainly lead to the death of tens if not hundreds of thousands of south korean friends that's gotta be a scary scenario and hence we come back to what are them robin and i said earlier i think there is a strategy i think there is some coherence there but the implementation asked to be so carefully orchestrated that this could actually lead if not carefully done and to avert a much worse place we don't get the chinese doing what we would like them to do the north koreans continue on with the program and i agree with robert the end point here is not denuclearization the endpoint point here at best is probably freeze we may not get that from the north koreans and now we've got a president was made these kinds of commitments and we'll see an an robin you were talking earlier we're talking about china and what more china needs to do and chinese president she and you made an observation about the way that president trump speaks to president heavy on twitter oh well this is what i think he's electrifying particularly dealing with asians who are very face conscious that uh president trump tweets about choosing paying in the same way he tweets about jeff sessions and this is not the way to deal diplomatically to bill partners i mean this was a relationship he supposedly uh enriched over a piece of chocolate cake and mara lago and that cemented a uh a relationship and look how long it lasted and to dismiss it this quickly and when we rely on china is the only interlocutor with north korea they're not a lot of other players who can do that so i think he jeopardizes at by insulting the president of china the.
