New reports out of North Korea suggest that nukes are not the only kind of weapons the U.S. has to worry about.

Kim Jong Un has been collecting large amounts of chemical weapons, including sarin gas and VX.

According to the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology, stockpiles of nerve agents are being produced and stored in as many as 11 different facilities in North Korea.

A spokesperson for the Arms Control Association says North Korea could respond to a potential U.S. attack on their country by using chemical weapons, despite the Geneva protocol that bans their use.

Pyongyang officials have denied the regime possesses the chemical weapons since the country began developing them amid rising tensions in 1961.

    N.K. is a mess created by Russia, perpetuated by China, and encouraged by those who would subvert the U.S.A.; however, just look at what we have done for Japan, South Korea, and Mexico … since NAFTA Mexico now has the 13th largest economy just behind S. Korea. N.K. can only win if they peacefully unify with S. Korea.

  2. Did the Korean War ever actually end, or has there just been a ceasefire all this time? I can’t remember.

    • Nope!

      Never declared a war conveniently

      An “armistice” was signed by China , N. Korea, S. Korea, U.S. on 07/27/1953 after Eisenhower hinted that the “nuclear” option was “on the table” to “resolve” the Korean conflict. A “technical” state of war has existed since. Any new conflict would NOT be a 2nd Korean War but simply the “Resumption of Hostilities” of the “Existing” state of war. They were trying to avoid World War III at the time.

  3. Well, yeah, they could. But, I rather doubt Fat Boy Slim is going to stick his fat porker face across the border into S. Korea or attack U.S. interests unless he’s dead set SURE that China is going to back his play …..all the way.

    At what time did we think North Korea (or any 5th world country) would NOT use chemical weapons?

    That is like saying, prison looking thug in back bar room brawl “COULD” use his knife in the next fight.

    At what time did we as a society start thinking war or any fight was supposed to be fair? And you are only supposed to win using fair tactics?
    This isn’t the Superbowl people, this is real life and death we are dealing with. You are either prepared or you lose.

  5. This definitely ‘ups the ante’. If they have a large stockpile of chemical weapons, S. Korea will be contaminated with radioactivity if we use nuclear on NK.

      Don’t forget that they have many weapons aimed at Seoul. In any armed conflict with us you can bet they’ll fire those weapons. Any other US allies in the region (Japan comes to mind) will also be in danger.

      I like the fact that these weapons are banned, kind of like guns are banned in Chicago,
      or having Islamist terrorist adhering to the Geneva convention, or having ANTIFA attack anyone they want to while the police stand down because they are being controlled by the Democratic mayor. or governor. all HELL has broken lose, and now the world is in a constant state of WAR and rumors of WAR.
      better have your salvation secure with JESUS. or the worst day here on earth would be cherished compared to your best day in HELL.

  6. Just like the ending of the original Planet of the Apes, damn you all to hell Bill Clinton for letting these guys go Nuclear.

    God help us if we allow Iran to do the same then we’re really screwed.

    Only nukes would enrage the sleeping giant more than chemical weapons.

  8. Well if they (NK) used chems. a good round of 48hr. conventional weapons should do the trick, unless we ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO we shouldn’t use NUKES. That would just open the door for all the CRAZIES that have them to say; ” well the U.S. used them so I guess we can too ” that spells disaster for the planet, like I say 48hr maybe even 72hr continually should do it

  9. We have hydrogen bombs. They use that, we use them.

      Enhanced Radiation Weapons AKA the Neutron Bomb is ready made for a North Korea situation. It irradiates the crap outa the battlefield, kills everything, but spares the infrastructure. It would be a perfect weapon to “neutralize” the Little Porker Kim, in his palace, but would not destroy Pyongyang. It sure would ‘fry” his lardass, though!

      • I wasn’t aware there was any infrastructure worth salvaging there. The big problem is all that 1950’s artillery pointed at SK. Any attack would have to take out most if not all of those positions as well as the little fat kid at the same time. It would have to be an unexpected sneak attack. I would wait until their next big shindig where the little putz is reviewing his goostepping little puppets in the big square. Hit that with a 50kilo tactical nuke and simultaneously fire a few dozen 1kilo nukes at all his known artillery sites. Combine that with jamming their comms and we will catch them with their pants down.

      • They’ll be doing the “Neutron Dance” (Pointer sisters reference)

        He would eat it

      Yea and everyone dies
