Trump says ‘appeasement’ will not work after N.Korea nuke test, Breitbart, September 3, 2017

(Please see also, Getting Tough on North Korea: Iran and Other Mirages. The thrust of the linked article is that sanctions won’t work and that some form of “a broader political-military effort to stabilize the situation” is necessary.  As asked in my parenthetical comment on the article,

Do we need merely “to stabilize the situation,” or do we need to do something more drastic to change it so that North Korea will (a) cease to be a nuclear threat now and (b) be disabled from becoming one again? “

I think we need to disable North Korea from ever becoming a nuclear power again. While China urges patience, sanctions and appeasement of North Korea, China is threatening to “reunite” Taiwan with military force rather than through appeasement or sanctions.

Washington (AFP) – US President Donald Trump declared Sunday that “appeasement with North Korea” will not work, after Pyongyang claimed it had successfully tested a missile-ready hydrogen bomb.

“North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test,” Trump said. “Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States.”

His comments came hours after the US Geological Survey picked up a 6.3 magnitude “explosion” in North Korea, which Pyongyang confirmed was a nuclear test, its sixth.

The isolated regime said this one was of a hydrogen bomb that could be fitted atop a ballistic missile, sharply raising the stakes in a US-North Korea confrontation.

Trump last month threatened North Korea with “fire and fury” if it continued to threaten the United States, but he refrained from direct threats in his latest tweets.

“South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!” he said.

“North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.”
