United States has been conducting back-channel talks with North Korea for months

United States has been conducting back-channel talks with North Korea for months

Trump and Secretary of Defense James Mattis have both used strong language pertaining to North Korea's threats.

Thus, Beijing, Moscow, and Pyongyang plan to win the New Cold War in the Pacific without firing a shot. At the end of World War II, the Soviet Union created North Korea and, together with China, supported the North in fighting the United States during the Korean War.

On Tuesday، the Washington Post reported that North Korea has already developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead capable of being fitted onto an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM)، placing parts of the United States within range of a North Korean nuclear strike. However, this has not deterred the Democratic People's Republic of Korea as it continues to be an avid aggressor in global politics.

Washington-based think tank C4ADS says that Pyongyang is "far from being isolated, (and) is globally active through its overseas networks", which are helping to raise the funds and materials the country needs for its weapons programmes. Heretofore, the administration has urged China to press North Korea as a kind of subcontractor to achieve American objectives.

The report also showed how a number of "gateway firms" are being used to gain access to the worldwide finance market.

Yet many foreign policy establishment Democrats and Republicans, who previously insisted a nuclear-armed North Korea is unacceptable, are now arguing for accommodation (really appeasement and surrender).

But if North Korea escalates, the USA must be prepared to escalate to massive disarming strikes, including use of nuclear weapons. With a boost of 4.6 percent exports from China, North Korea's economy grew at its fastest pace in 17 years in 2016.

Immediately, move more THAAD interceptors to South Korea, more Aegis anti-missile ships around North Korea and in the Gulf of Mexico, strengthening USA missile defenses. In May, Russian president Vladimir Putin expressed his willingness to dispatch a diplomatic delegation to play the role of a mediator in the region.

Now that North Korea is recognized by the intelligence community and policymakers alike as a clear and present danger to the USA mainland-armed with ICBMs capable of blasting American cities with atomic warheads, possibly with much more powerful thermonuclear warheads in 6-18 months-what can we do? North Korea's threat on July 8 to make a nuclear strike on Guam indicates they understand the concept of limited nuclear operations and surgical strikes.

Russian firms like the Independent Petroleum Company, Ardis-Bearings LLC, and Igor Aleksandrovich Michurin, have been involved in oil and other sectors in business.

At the same time, the editorial said China would intervene if the USA attacked North Korea first, which may be an attempt by China to warn the U.S. against starting a war either, at risk of getting into a much bigger war with China.
