Top US Admiral: North Korea Plots to ‘Reunify’ Korean Peninsula

US Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris, testifying Wednesday before the House Armed Services Committee, accused North Korea of making its recent military advances exclusively with an eye toward forcibly unifying the Korean Peninsula “under a single communist system.”

Admiral Harris scorned the idea that North Korea had gotten nuclear arms to try to protect North Korea from a US-imposed regime change, saying he believes Kim’s ambitions are to “blackmail the South and other countries in the region, and us.”

He was led into this answer by Committee chair Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), who said the only reason anyone believes Kim is getting the weapons for deterrence is because “alternatives are too terrible to contemplate.”

But Admiral Harris seemed fine echoing this view, despite North Korea being very public about deterrence being a top priority, and despite North Korea’s recent diplomatic overtures making no sense at all if Kim’s exclusive goal is to conquer South Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US Pacific Commander Admiral Harris, a word, please.

If Kim invited South Korea's President Moon to Pyongyang, do you think for one minute Kim's goal is to hold him as his prisoner, in order to extract some kind of geopolitical "price" from South Korea, knowing that it would goad the US into some kind of retaliatory measures?!?

Admiral, Kim is many things; but irrational and unreasonable are not among them.

Regurgitating the old, tired US Deep State's propaganda on North Korea, as a narrative to justify invading it, cannot possibly sway the US populace to embrace such a decision; we have all had our fill of US-generated wars, which appear to be going nowhere; Afghanistan; Libya; Iraq; and Somalia come very quickly to mind, sir.

And I would like to politely remind you; we have lived with nuclear-armed governments which the US just has had a hard time liking, in any way, like Pakistan.

It has nuclear weapons, and even though it has now been put on the US "funds terrorist groups" Watch List, I seriously doubt we are going to invade that country any time soon.

And why?!?

Because it has nuclear weapons as a deterrent, Admiral: it is just that simple.
