It’s day three into the Workers’ Party congress in North Korea, and leader Kim Jong Un shows no signs of retracting his use of nuclear weapons.

The KCNA news agency reported on Monday that a self-defensive nuclear weapons capability would continue to be developed. The congress, which is the first to be held in 36 years is believed to be a means to cement Kim Jong Un’s power in the nation.

The congress released the decision to the KCNA news that the development of nuclear arms will only occur accordingly, while its sovereignty is threatened.

“We will consistently take hold on the strategic line of simultaneously pushing forward the economic construction and the building of nuclear force and boost self-defensive nuclear force both in quality and quantity as long as the imperialists persist in their nuclear threat and arbitrary practices,” congress announcements stipulated.

The ramping up of their testing of nuclear weapons early in the year saw North Korea come under further UN sanctions. A long-range rocket launch is scheduled for next month, defying international pressure.

  1. Why is the world just standing around doing nothing but report on how this little fat dictator is acquiring nuclear capabilities, and no one is preventing it. Where are the worlds best snipers when you need them?? Take that spoiled little fat f*cker out, once and for all, and put in a whole new governing system where the people aren’t oppressed.

    • The problem is that the important thing about Kim Jong-un is that he stays a god-link icon to the people. If, theoretically, he was killed then we would have no idea what to expect… They could replace him with a look-a-like, immediately attack, etc. the list goes on and on. It’s better to deal with the demon we know then the one we don’t.

    • Not only does the US have some 29,000 troops situated, a long way from home, on the Korean border, declared North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a sanctioned individual, despite it being the US that has soldiers positioned in tens of thousands of bases in hundreds of countries, wars running in multiple, and drones killing civilians in dozens, and twice this year alone, rejected peace discussions with North Korea, but as North Korean Director-General Han Song Ryol for U.S. affairs said this week, “it is the United States that first developed nuclear weapons, who first deployed them and who first used them against humankind, [not Korea].”

      So what is it that you feel gives the US the right to “Take that spoiled little fat f*cker out, once and for all”?
