As predicted, Kim Jong Un clings to his nukes while pissing his pants over U.S. strike on Syria

As Borderless News Online predicted last week, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is clinging on tighter than ever to the idea of becoming a nuclear power, in a bid to protect his nasty regime from being overthrown by the United States.

The boy-king is pissing his pants in fear that he’ll be the next U.S. target, after President Donald Trump last week smacked Syrian leader and accused war criminal Bashar al-Assad with several dozen Tomahawk missiles. Trump’s missile strike hit an airbase believed to be the launching point for a chemical weapons attack last week against Assad’s own people, including children.

The strike was not only intended to give Assad a spanking, but was also meant to send a clear message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who is openly developing a nuclear program aimed at hitting the U.S. with a nuclear strike.

But as Borderless predicted, Trump’s strike has caused Kim to cling more tightly to the idea of becoming a full nuclear power, as he sees no other way to defend his regime – one of the world’s worst human rights abusers.

North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said Sunday the U.S. strikes show North Korea’s nukes program is justified to protect against what it called Washington’s “reckless moves for a war.”

“Some forces are loud-mouthed that the recent U.S. military attack on Syria is an action of warning us, but we are not frightened by it. (North Korea’s) tremendous military muscle with a nuclear force as its pivot” will put a stop to any U.S. aggression, the news agency wrote.

North Korea is an astute observer of world events, and watched the U.S. overthrow the brutal regime of Saddam Hussein over a decade ago. North Korea’s regime watched as Saddam was hunted down, tried and executed. Kim Jong Un also watched as Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, a few years back, was beaten to death by a militia after the U.S. toppled his regime. Gaddafi’s body was for several days kept in a freezer in a local market so that Libyans nationwide could come and gawk at his dead body.

Kim Jong Un doesn’t want that to be him, so he’s holding tightly to his nuclear program in hopes that it will shield him from such a fate.

While North Korea has nuclear weapons, Pyongyang still has not perfected a missile that can deliver them to U.S. targets.  But Pyongyang is obsessed with achieving this in order to guarantee the Kim regime’s survival, and many experts believe North Korea could be two or three years away from such technology.

That leaves a window of a couple of years for the U.S. to do anything about Kim’s nukes program. Once Kim is able to strike the U.S. with nukes, it will be too late to take any action against the Hermit Kingdom.

Sanctions have been tried get North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program, but they have never worked – no matter how much the people of North Korea suffer, the regime simply doesn’t care. The regime itself has not been hurt by the sanctions, as food and goods go directly to Kim Jong Un and his security forces during lean times, leaving the general population to fend for itself. People in North Korea search for food in forests or get any food any way they can. Some women sell their bodies to military officers in exchange for food for themselves and their families. Many North Koreans in border areas sneak over to China to find work work, food and supplies.

North Korea’s people are unlikely to stand up against the regime, as the population in many areas is tightly controlled by the regime’s security apparatus.

It remains unknown whether North Korea will see a coup, but Kim Jong Un is ruling the nation’s elite circles by fear, and even murdered his own uncle, who was a popular leader who wanted reforms.

Meanwhile, a U.S. carrier group on Sunday re-routed and steamed toward the Korean Peninsula, in a bid to provide a physical presence in the region and make it clear to Pyongyang that the U.S. is eyeing them.
