North Korea is the US’s hegemonic baseball bat in the region used to force compliance from Japan

Whenever the US needs political pressure on Japan, it pulls out their club, in this case North Korea, and beats Japan over the head with it. More recently, the U.S. Vice President threatening North Korea that Japan will be forced to use nuclear weapons on North Korea unless North Korea stops building and firing missiles in tests presumably threatening Japan. Wouldn’t it be a devastating traumatic shock to the world if more and more people started discovering that nuclear weapons may well be a fraud, and that the biggest purveyor of that fraud is the U.S.? Joe Bidden himself, has never looked into whether or not nuclear weapons actually exist. He just continues promoting the idea only that nuclear weapons exist using them as a threat against other nations that don’t comply with U.S. hegemony. Russia manufactures and tests missile systems all the time. So why is it North Korea has Washington upset over test firing a few primitive missiles? Military confrontation and the constant threat of using nuclear weapons is a very profitable proposition. As if this were the only way to diplomatic negotiations to settle differences? Can anyone imagine the backlash against the Japanese government by the Japanese people if they discovered the Japanese government began a nuclear weapons manufacturing and procurement program?

Tame N. Korea or Japan may go nuclear ‘virtually overnight’, Biden warns Xi

Japan may obtain nuclear weapons “virtually overnight” if the North Korean threat persists, US Vice-President Joe Biden warned China’s Xi Jinping. He urged to exert influence on Pyongyang, reassuring that US military buildup in Asia is not targeting China.

For years, the United States and world powers have tried to negotiate an end to North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile development programs. While pursuing a variety of responses to the proliferation challenges posed by Pyongyang, mainly focused on military cooperation with allies in the region, Washington failed to achieve any tangible results in curbing the ‘North Korean threat’.

On Wednesday, North Korea test-launched two medium-range ballistic missiles, the latest in a series of launches in violation of UN Security Council resolution. Each missile launch, be it successful or not, is traditionally accompanied by belligerent rhetoric by North Korea towards the US and its regional allies that fall under the American security umbrella.

From the start of the year, the US has contemplated on a number of options to tackle the increased threat. Since March, the US has been negotiating with South Korea to place Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on the peninsula.

US President Barack Obama(not shown) and China’s President Xi Jinping take part in a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on March 31, 2016 in Washington, DC.

China has strongly objected to such a move, arguing that missile defense complex will threaten its sovereignty. As the negotiations on the issue of THAAD deployment continues, Biden claimed that the threat from North Korea, if not contained, may force Japan to seek nuclear weapons.

Recalling a conversation Biden allegedly had with the Chinese president, the VP said that unless Beijing agrees with moving US missile defense systems to South Korea, Washington will be forced to respond to protect its security.

“When I tell President Xi, you have to understand we got a guy up there in North Korea who is talking about building weapons that can strike, nuclear weapons strike the United States and not only Hawaii and Alaska, but… the mainland of the United States,” Biden told PBS host Charlie Rose in an interview broadcast Monday. “And I say, so we’re going to move up our defense system, and he says no, no, no, wait a minute, my military thinks you’re going to try to circle us.

“What would you do? Do you think we should stand back?” Biden continued. “What happens if we don’t work out something together on North Korea? What happens if Japan, who could tomorrow, could go nuclear tomorrow?”

As an alternative to reduce tensions, Biden urged China to use its resources to “single greatest ability to influence North Korea.”
