    more grist for the bustling black market.
    Name 1 country where modern day sanctions have brought a country to its knees.
    It doesn't even work w/ land-locked countries
    much less an asian nation w/ its own ports.
    The double-freeze was the only 'plan' that made any sense.


    Germany supports Russian-Chinese ‘double freeze’ plan for North Korea crisis – FM Gabriel
    https://www.rt.com/news/399775-germa...-freeze-korea/

    Berlin supports the joint Russian-Chinese initiative for a “double freeze” to resolve the Korean crisis, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said.
    The plan involves freezing missile launches in North Korea and South Korea’s drills with the US.

    Germany “understands and endorses the ‘double freeze’ initiative,
    and is willing to continue to work with Beijing to promote a peaceful settlement of the DPRK [North Korea] nuclear issue,”
    the top German diplomat said in a telephone conversation with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday.

    “Germany appreciates the important role China plays in tackling the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula,” Gabriel added, as cited by China’s Foreign Ministry.

    Chinese Foreign Minister Wang said that thanks to efforts from all sides, tensions on the Korean Peninsula
    were showing signs of easing, but that the "August crisis" is still not over.

    encouraging...
    but the above makes no mention of THAAD removal (which was in original double freeze outline)

    So where is Zippy, anyway? Had to take the week off? Even he couldn't say Antifa didn't start that fight with a straight face?

    Maybe he got a better job and the Federal Reserve is having trouble finding a replacement.

    They should try promising to pay in gold or silver, so the new Zippy doesn't have to ask for a raise every day in order to keep up with inflation

    When the US nuclear program was at the point NK is now it took another 15 years- as the wealthiest country in the world- to develop a true first strike capable ICBM. It seems like a country with no electricity and everyone starving would take longer.
    That doesn't really mean anything though because the technology already exists, they just have to build it or whatever.
