President Donald Trump has emerged from a year on the brink of nuclear war with North Korea with a prospective peace deal. China and Japan appear to be struggling to keep up with the progress and promises being made in the Koreas. But North Korea’s progress has been all talk up to now, and nobody can honestly say whether they’re sincere. Having announced an end to testing nuclear devices and ballistic missiles, North Korea can now pursue a different kind of relationship with the outside world. If it happens on Trump’s watch, it will likely count as a big win. President Donald Trump has emerged from a year on the brink of nuclear war with North Korea with a prospective, unprecedented meeting with its leader Kim Jong Un on the books, renewed hopes of peace, and Nobel Peace Prize buzz.

North Korea will be pressing pause on its nuclear and missile tests this weekend in advance of summits with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in next week and with Donald Trump sometime this spring, Reuters reports. The announcement, via state news agency KCNA, also included plans to shutter its nuclear test site, according to the Washington Post. But that doesn’t mean North Korea’s getting rid of the nuclear weapons that it has already developed, or that testing is done for good: the test site is still there, and the regime can resume testing when it pleases, says Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS). To make it non-operational, they’d have to fill the tunnels. The announcement isn’t particularly surprising to Lewis, who says North Korea wouldn’t have tested its nuclear weapons in advance of the summits anyways because of the political repercussions. “So … [Read more...] about North Korea’s freeze on nuclear testing isn’t a victory — it’s negotiation
Russia could soon be able to conduct nuclear strikes all over the world without any chance of being intercepted, President Vladimir Putin said Thursday (March 1). Speaking on Russian television as part of his annual address, Putin announced a new class of weapons delivery systems designed to sneak past NATO's American-built ballistic missile defenses. As Putin spoke, computer-generated graphics and video footage playing behind him showed the capabilities of a new hypersonic missile, an underwater drone and a cruise missile with "unlimited range" designed to avoid detection systems. Experts in nuclear weapons and their politics said the move was far from a shock, given a years-long deterioration of global arms reduction efforts and the recent Trump administration announcement that the United States plans to deploy its own new nuclear tech. [7 Technologies That Transformed Warfare] "It was not surprising," said Philip Coyle, a nuclear weapons expert who worked for the … [Read more...] about Will the US Be Able to Stop Russia’s New Arsenal of Missile Defense-Piercing Nukes?
