Of course.

Its my opinion that N. Korea’s bomb is really deterrence against China.

The Chinese and N. Korean Gov’ts are the most secretive in the world, and neither will benefit by airing their disputes in public. The Kim regime knows that China has spies and allies spread throughout its military, and they could be the target of a coup at any time. China is the enemy within.

America is merely the enemy without, which is much easier to keep an eye on.

As will Egypt. Iran will very soon have tactical nukes. NK is working on miniaturizing their warhead.

Quite a good number of tactical size can be far easier to deliver given the anti missile proficiency of the Israelis. I think we had artillery shells deployed in Europe during the Cold War.

I am by no means certain that NK didn’t test fire an Iranian nuke.

Of course, we don’t have any way to tell just
whose bomb was tested either. Could have been the
Norks, could have been the mullahs probably was
a little of both. The thing is, they know it works
so it’a full speed ahead on the rest of them.

Re: “Iran already has the bomb.”

Yeah, I guess so!

They've been doing research and testing for 30 years.

The Russians and Americans have had nuclear tipped ICBM’s since 1960.

No doubt there are many challenging engineering issues in trying to manufacture and maintain your own weapons.

But the basic technology for designing a nuclear tipped ICBM has been widely known for a long, long time.

And you only need a couple functional missiles to completely change the military equation.

Sure, maybe a missile site can be bombed, or internal missile guidance jammed, or a missile can be shot down, but one mistake, or one episode of bad luck, can result in millions of American deaths or an electromagnetic economic catastrophe.

And, really, who can blame ANY tyrant for seeking a nuclear threat against America?

Saddam was hanged, his sons were murdered, Mubarak has a death sentence, Qaddafi was murdered and stripped naked for public mockery, Syria's Assad would be dead in 20 minutes if he didn't have Iran watching his back.

The Ayatollahs and the Kim family are profoundly evil.

But, guess what, when human beings are threatened with death, they usually make an effort to defend themselves.

There have been enormous and costly efforts to sponsor propaganda to create other issues and foment panic and hysteria to cause the population to focus on those other issues ("SHTF," "TEOTWAWKI," etc.). A little peek at only a little of what they don't want you to focus on. There's much more (e.g., China having at least hundreds of mobiles that can reach anywhere in our USA with accuracy--last word around ten years ago, give or take).

Why Iran Already Has the Bomb: If NK has the bomb, then for all practical purposes, so does Iran

Also, China and Russia are modernizing and increasing their military, including their nuclear forces, yet the TREASONOUS BASTARD usurping the oval office is planning deep cuts in OUR nuclear force! What more proof is needed that he intends to destroy this Country?

Iran could be using N Korea to “test” the nuclear devices there because if Iran tested them on Iranian Territory Israel would step in and bomb them.

Little do so many of those under age 50, who mock the “hysteria” and “paranoia”, the duck and cover, and survival preparations of the Cold War realize, that they will live long enough to learn that America and civilization is again to live under the threat of instant destruction. History isn’t over, the bomb was not just an illusion that quietly disappeared.
