North Korea Slams ‘Evil’ Sanctions, Vows Faster Nuclear Push

North Korea rejected the latest round of United Nations sanctions on the isolated state, and vowed to accelerate its plans to acquire a nuclear weapon that can strike the U.S. homeland.

In its first official response to the new resolution, North Korea’s foreign ministry released a statement on state-run media saying the sanctions justified its nuclear push and strengthened its will to “follow this road at a faster pace without the slightest diversion until this fight to the finish is over.”

“The adoption of another illegal and evil ‘resolution on sanctions’ piloted by the U.S. served as an occasion for the DPRK to verify that the road it chose to go down was absolutely right,” the ministry said, according to the Korean Central News Agency. “The DPRK will redouble the efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country’s sovereignty and right to existence,” KCNA said, using the country’s formal name.

The comments come as the world awaits Kim’s next move. South Korea said Tuesday that the isolated state remained technically prepared to perform a nuclear test, and analysts say that he may launch a missile in the next few days. The international community is split on how to deal with Kim’s provocations, with the U.S. having watered down sanctions to get China and Russia -- the biggest economic patrons of North Korea -- on board.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not the rhetoric coming out of North Korea, but precisely what Kim Jung Un is really prepared to do, coupled with a potential confrontation by the US, and approached by China and Russia as an issue which must be resolved diplomatically, avoiding all military confrontation.

The question of possible scenarios dealing with North Korea's nuclear push become more complicated, in light of President Trump's having vowed on the campaign trail that he would never allow North Korea to develop a working nuclear missile.

So one has to ask: how does he honor that in a way that China and Russia can sign off on?!? China has already warned the US that should the US strike first, they will take North Korea's side, militarily.

China warns Trump: we will back North Korea of the US strikes first

It appears, with the promises he made regarding North Korea's nuclear program, that President Trump has painted himself into a corner, and one has to wonder just what his "way out" is going to be, if in fact it is NOT a military confrontation with North Korea.
