Trump's fiery, furious threats to 'totally destroy' North Korea might just work
Thomson Reuters
President Donald Trump's bold approach to North Korea has horrified many and raised the issue of nuclear war into everyday conversation, but the unconventional tactic may work in a roundabout way, an expert on US-China relations and North Korea says.
Trump's fiery rhetoric and the administration's decision to make North Korea its top national security priority have "changed the momentum" on the issue, Yun Sun, a senior associate at the Stimson Center, a Washington, DC-based think tank, told Business Insider.
In recent months, North Korea has shocked the world by demonstrating that it's most likely just a few months from developing a nuclear-equipped intercontinental ballistic missile.
President Donald Trump has responded to North Korea with escalating rhetoric, saying in August that the US would respond to further North Korean threats with " fire and fury ." Last month, he stood in front of the United Nations and threatened to " totally destroy " North Korea if necessary. He has leaned more heavily on the prospect of military action than any of his recent predecessors.
While North Korea has yet to halt its nuclear program, Trump's rebukes of the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, and the president's open flirtation with nuclear war appear to have pushed the international community toward action.
"If the criteria is North Korea stops its nuclear program, the data so far suggests that North Korea has not been stopped by real or rhetorical threats," Sun said.
But if the criteria is to get China, North Korea's treaty ally and the nation responsible for 90% of its trade, to stop backing Pyongyang, Trump's threats have "worked and potentially could 'work' more," Sun said.
"No matter how much people don't like him, he has extracted more cooperation out of China than any of his predecessors on North Korea," Sun said of Trump.
So even though North Korea is unlikely to be frightened by Trump's sometimes obvious bluster, the intended audience for the threats may not be Kim.
Several countries have cut or curbed ties with North Korea in recent weeks as the Trump administration has stepped up its approach toward Kim , The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
KCNA via Reuters
Over the past 25 years, the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations attempted to curb North Korea's nuclear program through a mix of sanctions, diplomacy, and aid dollars to feed the sometimes starving nation.
Despite these efforts, North Korea has continued its provocations and missile tests, culminating this year in two intercontinental-ballistic-missile launches, two missile launches over Japan, and its most powerful nuclear test yet.
At best, previous administrations slowed North Korea's nuclear progress but failed to stop it. At the same time, Trump's threats and bluster appear to have whipped up a kind of urgency that UN sanctions and condemnations and previous administrations' diplomacy failed to do.

'Policy didn't work!': Trump tweets of North Korea after hinting at war
AP Photo/Wong Maye-E
President Donald Trump on Monday morning tweeted another hint that he was nearing the end of his patience with North Korea.
"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing. Policy didn't work!" Trump tweeted.
Trump's tweet echoes a sentiment he expressed over the weekend that " only one thing will work " to solve the North Korea crisis.
Trump's statement was ambiguous at the time.
But Mick Mulvaney, the White House budget director, later confirmed the meaning in an interview on NBC : Trump was "clearly telegraphing" military action against North Korea.
As of the latest media reports, movements, and statements from the US military, a strike on North Korea does not appear imminent.
But on Thursday evening, during an impromptu dinner with senior military officials at the White House, Trump suggested the meeting may represent " the calm before the storm ." He did not elaborate.
Friday in the Oval Office, Trump was again asked about his "calm before the storm" comment, and he replied with a wink .
"You'll find out," Trump said after his wink. "We'll see."
Factually, Trump's Monday tweet rings true. The US has attempted to sway North Korea from building nuclear arms since 1992 and has given the country over a billion dollars in aid since then, even during tense periods.
While the US and other parties did at times get North Korea to agree to talks and preliminary frameworks for disarmament, no agreement held.

Sanctions and diplomacy have at best slowed the progress of North Korea's nuclear program, and today the world faces a rogue regime on the cusp of marrying a thermonuclear bomb to an intercontinental ballistic missile.
The speed of North Korea's nuclear breakout has surprised experts and academics within and outside the US government.
No previous US president faced such an advanced threat from North Korea, and no previous president took up such fiery rhetoric against Pyongyang as Trump now has.

Trump says 'only one thing will work' to solve the North Korea crisis
Thomson Reuters
US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that "only one thing will work" to solve the North Korea crisis, although he did not explicitly specify what that would be.
"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid......" the president tweeted . 
"...hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!" he continued in a second tweet .
It's unclear whether Trump was referring to the nuclear option when he said "only one thing will work." A senior administration official told Business Insider that the White House had "nothing else to add" to the president's tweets, and the State Department did not return a request for comment. 
North Korea rapidly escalated its nuclear posturing over the summer. The rogue nation  fired a missile  over Japan a few weeks ago for the second time in two months.
Last weekend, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters during a visit to China that the US conflict with North Korea is "overheated" and that the first priority was to calm things down. He said that the US has a direct line of communication open with Pyongyang over North Korea's nuclear tests, adding: "We're not in a dark situation, a blackout."
Trump diverged from the US State Department later that weekend  and said Tillerson was "wasting his time" opening up talks with the North Korean regime. The president  added  that being nice to Kim "hasn't worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won't fail." 
Trump ramped up his rhetoric against the regime when the United Nations General Assembly convened on September 23, saying that "rocket man" Kim Jong Un was on a "suicide mission," and that if he did not back down, the US would "have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea."
Kim  responded  by saying he would "surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire." North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho,  also said  that  Trump's comments made the possibility of a missile attack  on the US mainland "all the more inevitable."
Ri also said that Trump had "declared a war" on North Korea through tweets he posted after the UN meeting and that the country could shoot down US strategic bombers even if they were not in its airspace,  according to Reuters .
Speaking to reporters in New York in September, Ri pointed to one of Trump's tweets that said Ri and Kim Jong Un " won't be around much longer " if the rogue nation continued its nuclear provocations as constituting a declaration of war.
The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, rejected North Korea's claim later that day."We've not declared war on North Korea," Sanders told reporters during the White House daily briefing. "Frankly, the suggestion of that is absurd."

North Korea restarts work at industrial complex jointly owned with South Korea
Thomson Reuters
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea has restarted operations at the Kaesong industrial zone, state-run web sites said on Friday, after the joint venture with South Korea was suspended last year amid disagreement over the North's nuclear and missile programs.
The South ended more than a decade of cooperation at the factory park on the North Korean side of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) after the North launched a rocket that put an object into orbit, closing the last remaining window of interaction between the two sides, still technically at war.
At the time, South Korea said it would no longer allow funds paid for Kaesong to be used in the North's missile and nuclear programs. Since then, a South Korean official has said there is no evidence that North Korea diverted wages paid to its workers by South Korean companies operating in the park to its weapons programs.
"They do not even see our proud workers laboring vigorously working in the Kaesong industrial complex," North Korea's propaganda web site Meari (arirangmeari.com) said in a post dated Friday.
Another propaganda web site, Uriminzokkiri, said "it is nobody's business what we do in an industrial complex where our nation's sovereignty is exercised".
An official at South Korea's Ministry of Unification said that North Korea must not violate South Korean firms' property rights within the complex, wire service Yonhap reported.
The Ministry of Unification could not be immediately reached for comment.
Thomson Reuters
Reclusive North Korea and the rich, democratic South are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.
In recent weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test, and may be fast advancing toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last weekend that Washington was directly communicating with Pyongyang on its nuclear and missile programs but that Pyongyang had shown no interest in dialogue.
U.S. President Donald Trump later dismissed any prospect of talks with North Korea as a waste of time.

Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

REUTERS/KCNA
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador warned Monday that the situation on the Korean peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”
Kim In Ryong told the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee that North Korea is the only country in the world that has been subjected to “such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” from the United States since the 1970s — and said the country has the right to possess nuclear weapons in self-defense.
He pointed to large-scale military exercises every year using “nuclear assets” and said what is more dangerous is what he called a U.S. plan to stage a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership.”
This year, Kim said, North Korea completed its “state nuclear force and thus became the full-fledged nuclear power which possesses the delivery means of various ranges, including the atomic bomb, H-bomb and intercontinental ballistic rockets.”
“The entire U.S. mainland is within our firing range and if the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe,” he warned.
Kim’s speech follows escalating threats between North Korea and the United States, and increasingly tough U.N. sanctions.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that his country is curtailing economic, scientific and other ties with North Korea in line with U.N. sanctions, and the European Union announced new sanctions on Pyongyang for developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
Associated Press/Evan Vucci
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday that diplomatic efforts aimed at resolving the North Korean crisis “will continue until the first bomb drops.” His commitment to diplomacy came despite President Donald Trump’s tweets several weeks ago that his chief envoy was “wasting his time” trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom he derisively referred to as “Little Rocket Man.”
North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador called his country’s nuclear and missile arsenal “a precious strategic asset that cannot be reversed or bartered for anything.”
“Unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the U.S. is thoroughly eradicated, we will never put our nuclear weapons and ballistic rockets on the negotiating table under any circumstances,” Kim said.
He told the disarmament committee that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea — North Korea’s official name — had hoped for a nuclear-free world.
Instead, Kim said, all nuclear states are accelerating the modernization of their weapons and “reviving a nuclear arms race reminiscent of (the) Cold War era.” He noted that the nuclear weapon states, including the United States, boycotted negotiations for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons that was approved in July by 122 countries at the United Nations.
“The DPRK consistently supports the total elimination of nuclear weapons and the efforts for denuclearization of the entire world,” he said. But as long as the United States rejects the treaty and “constantly threatens and blackmails the DPRK with nuclear weapons ... the DPRK is not in position to accede to the treaty.”

339 d ago Business Insider :: North Korea says 'nuclear war may break out any moment' — but that's the last thing it wants
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

KCNA via Reuters
North Korea's deputy UN ambassador said on Monday that tensions on the peninsula had escalated to the point that "a nuclear war may break out any moment."
This is exactly the kind of bluster Pyongyang has engaged in for decades.
On the surface, the latest US military movements may look like preparations for a preemptive strike on North Korea's nuclear infrastructure. But it's clear the two forces are still locked in a stalemate.
The USS Michigan, a stealthy submarine laden with 150 Tomahawk cruise missiles, just arrived in the South Korean port of Busan. It most likely carried Navy SEALs and covert submarines designed for operations deep behind enemy lines.
US bombers frequently train to strike North Korean targets. Stealth jets like F-35s and F-22s wait in the wings in case of conflict. A US aircraft carrier decked out with dozens of fighter and electronic attack aircraft sits just off North Korea's shores .
But experts say none of that really matters.
Tom Plant, the director of the proliferation and nuclear policy program at the Royal United Services Institute, said that "the US always, at all times, has an overwhelming superiority over North Korea," so a few new jets aren't likely to change things.
"In terms of its precision-strike technology, in terms of its ability to put metal on targets," the US prevents a contest between its forces, combined with South Korea's, and North Korea, Plant told Business Insider.
But a stalemate remains. The Pentagon has estimated that North Korea has enough artillery to kill as many as 20,000 people in South Korea each day, the Los Angeles Times reported. This all but precludes a US preemptive strike.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Jermaine Ralliford
Additionally, though a major naval drill recently began, Plant said he didn't see any evidence of a swell of ground troops that would indicate war is likely.
While the US would strike North Korea to prevent widespread death and destruction in the US or any of its allies' homelands, it hasn't come to that point.
North Korea on Monday appeared to acknowledge it didn't have a credible way of striking the US, with an official telling CNN that the country needed to conduct more tests. A strike on South Korea or Japan would also result in a smoldering Pyongyang.
"The last person who wants conflict on the [Korean Peninsula] is Kim Jong Un," Yong Suk Lee, the deputy assistant director of the CIA's newly created Korea Mission Center, previously said , referring to the North Korean leader. Lee added that Kim had "no interest in going toe-to-toe" with the US.
Ahn Young-joon/AP
The rational but paranoid North Korea has made a habit of making grandiose threats as it stares down superior conventional and nuclear military power from the US and South Korea.
North Korea has found that the best way to protest US military strength near its borders is to float the idea that nuclear war may be just a moment away, but that's the last thing it wants.

REUTERS/Dondi Tawatao
US President Donald Trump has “lit the wick of war” with North Korea and his country will be made to pay with “a hail of fire,” a Russian news agency quoted North Korea’s foreign minister as saying on Wednesday.
Tensions between North Korea and the United States have risen in recent weeks over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.
North Korea has test-fired several missiles and conducted what it said was a test explosion of a hydrogen bomb as it advances toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the US mainland.
Speaking to Russia’s state-run TASS news agency, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said his country’s nuclear program guaranteed peace and safety in the region and would not be a matter of discussion.
“With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us,” TASS quoted Ri as saying. “We need to settle the final score, only with a hail of fire, not words.”
Ri has previously called Trump “President Evil” and his comments are likely to fuel an escalating war of words between the US President and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“We have almost reached the last point on the journey toward our final goal — to achieve a real balance of power with the United States,” he said.
“Our principal position is that we will never agree to any talks in which our nuclear weapons will be the subject of negotiations.”

MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that around 40,000 North Korean citizens were currently working in Russia.
Such workers are known to regularly send back part of their wages to the North Korean authorities.
Putin, speaking at an energy forum, said Moscow was concerned about rising tensions between Pyongyang and the West over North Korea’s nuclear and missile program because it shared a border with the country.
He also said that anyone who spoke to Pyongyang using the language of force was only strengthening the position of the authorities there.

As Donald Trump prides himself on being unpredictable, he may well be pleased with a new New Yorker report from Evan Osnos that found North Korea couldn't make heads or tails of the US president.
Pak Song Il, the North Korean tasked with interpreting US politics, statements, and military posture, told Osnos during a trip to Pyongyang that Trump had thrown him for a loop.
"When he speaks, I have to figure out what he means, and what his next move will be," Pak said. "This is very difficult."
"He might be irrational — or too smart. We don’t know," Pak said.
Of particular interest in North Korea was Trump's " fire and fury " comment, when he seemed to offhandedly suggest that further threats from North Korea would prompt its nuclear annihilation from the US.
According to Osnos, Pak figured Trump was employing a deceptive strategy "like the Chinese 'Art of War.'"
But North Korea acknowledges that unlike its own system, the US relies more on consensus than whims of the leader.
"Is the American public ready for war?" Pak asked Osnos. "Does the Congress want a war? Does the American military want a war? Because, if they want a war, then we must prepare for that."

378 d ago Business Insider :: How Kim Jong Un's early childhood set him up to become North Korea's ruthless leader
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Though North Korea has been under the dynastic rule of the Kim family since the close of World War II, Kim Jong Un, the country's current leader, was never promised the throne after his father's death.
According to Evan Osnos' new report in the New Yorker , Kim rose to power mainly through "attitude and aggression" and displaying an "inner strength" from an early age. 
His half brothers Kim Jong Nam and Kim Jong Chol tended towards playfulness and meakness, but Kim Jong-un would wear Soviet military uniforms to his birthday as a child, according to Osnos. 
Even at a young age, Kim displayed a temper that may have translated into competitiveness on basketball courts in Switzerland, of all places. 
"He was competitive at sports. He didn’t like to lose, like every one of us. For him, basketball was everything,” João Micaelo, one of Kim's former classmates at a school Kim attended in Bern under a psuedonym during the 1990s, told Osnos.
While his father Kim Jong Il presided over a massive famine where millions perished and suffered malnutrition, Kim fell asleep with a basketball in his bed and was a fan of the Chicago Bulls NBA team. 
So when Kim Jong Il passed away in 2011, Kim became the natural choice, who proved even more vicious than his father. 
"With Kim Jong Un, he has never yet bitten more than he can chew. Whatever he sets his sights on he gets. He keeps pushing, and pushing, and pushing. We don’t know where his brakes are, and I suspect he doesn’t know where he can stop,” Alexandre Mansourov, the former Soviet diplomat to North Korea told Osnos.

Under Kim Jong Il, North Korea had more open relations with the outside world. He entertained former Secretary of State Madeline Albright in Pyongyang and hoped to improve relations with the US. 
But Kim Jong-un quickly became revered for his physical resemblance to Kim Il Sung, his grandfather and the country's founding leader, and he exhibited a brutality not seen under his father's rule.
He had his uncle killed, possibly to thwart an attempt at installing Kim Jong Nam , his half-brother, in a coup. Kim carried out violent purges of top officials with ties to China and insulated himself and his regime. 
Evan Medeiros, President Obama’s chief Asia adviser, contrasted the two leaders, saying the father's "approach to managing élites appeared to be more incentive-based than coercion-based, making sure that they all got goodies and spoils. The son’s approach appears to be 'If you screw with me, I’m just going to kill you—and I’m going to kill you in a really nasty way.'"

Since Kim took power in 2011, North Korea has tested missiles at a blistering rate, testing more times than his father and grandfather combined. Of six total nuclear tests, four have occurred under Kim Jong-un's watch.
Today, Kim's North Korea stands on the verge of full, unquestionable nuclear capability and tensions with the US stand near all-time highs. Though experts assess Kim intended to secure his regime against foreign invasion by building nuclear weapons, not a soul on earth can truly say what he will do with full nuclear powers.

Amid global alarm at the speed with which Pyongyang appears to be nearing its goal of developing nuclear missiles capable of reaching the US mainland , three foreign policy experts set out what can be done to rein in the North Korean leader
Sir Hugo Swire
UK foreign office minister for Asia until July 2016
However much China may deny its relationship with Pyongyang, and it does not have a good relationship, it does have leverage, not least through the huge amount of oil. So if China is getting serious, that is manifestly good news, and could be the answer.
China is looking at what is the lesser evil – a reunification of Korea that could be pro-western, a destabilising nuclear-armed North , all-out war on the peninsula with the huge migratory effects into China, a permanent US presence in the region. But what has changed is that, if it goes on like this, there is going to be an arms race in the region.

Failure to honour terms of the 1970 nuclear non-proliferation treaty has helped create ground for Kim Jong-un’s recklessness
North Korea’s defiant pursuit of nuclear weapons capabilities, dramatised by last weekend’s powerful underground test and a recent long-range ballistic missile launch over Japan, has been almost universally condemned as posing a grave, unilateral threat to international peace and security.
The growing North Korean menace also reflects the chronic failure of multilateral counter-proliferation efforts and, in particular, the longstanding refusal of acknowledged nuclear-armed states such as the US and Britain to honour a legal commitment to reduce and eventually eliminate their arsenals.

Read on The Economist | Share | Tweet

THE runaway pace of North Korea’s nuclear development has confounded predictions and diverted the attention of world leaders. It is also meddling with one North Korean grandmother’s retirement plans. Ri Chun Hee, a veteran broadcaster at Korean Central Television, was promised a rest in 2012, after 41 years gleefully reading out propaganda. The 74-year-old would only return for significant announcements. Yet these now come most weeks. North Korea has already tested 22 missiles this year. On September 3rd Mrs Ri was back, claiming the regime had tested a hydrogen bomb (see article ). It was, she declared with trademark exuberance, the “perfect” explosion.
Mrs Ri is not the only cold war relic that could be put back into service as a result of the test. Some South Koreans want America to show its support by moving nuclear... Continue reading
