North Korea: Nuclear Aggression Could Cause Internal Collapse
According to a South Korean official, North Korea could cause its own collapse if it keeps squandering money and natural resources on nuclear weapons and other military programs.
Chun Yung-woo, South Korea’s chief national security advisor, said:
“I think they will come to the point where they can no longer sustain the burden of military expenditures. They are already suffering from misery ... I think they will be worse off. I think their obsession with their military capabilities, especially weapons of mass destruction like nuclear weapons, chemical weapons ... that would be a short-cut to their demise.”
Well, that doesn’t sound too good now, does it. Pretty chilling scenario.
But isn’t there a certain other country that’s facing the same danger? You know, spending trillions of dollars on weapons while everything else collapses? A huge gap between the Powers That Be and the rest of the population?
