. SouthAmerica: The more I think about this entire North Korean news that has transpired since yesterday about them giving up their nuclear weapons â I realize that It does not make sense to me even if the North Koreans were bluffing about having the nuclear weapons â the timing of the deal is completely off, how the deal was done in the eleventh hour â I am not sure if there is a real deal here, and so onâ¦. Right now the only reason for a change of policy from the North Koreans regarding their nuclear weapons would be if they were having a total economic meltdown and collapse â but if that was the case we would have known through the international media that there were thousands of North Koreans trying to get inside China to be able to survive the famine and the chaos. I have a gut feeling that the North Koreans actually do have the nuclear weapons that they claim they have, and they are not foolish enough to give them up - I donât know who is playing games right now of letâs spin the news. I donât understand why they would give them up so easily after all this time and when the Bush administration is in real trouble regarding the Iraq War and the events related to Hurricane Katrina. China would not press North Korea to give up the nuclear weapons at this time for many reasons. It would be more interesting to China to keep the dialogue going to show to the world how they were replacing United States power in that area of the world â and they were running the show. China had an incentive to keep the negotiations going as long as they could without a final solution from North Korea. And China would look even better if they brokered instead a merge between the two Koreas. That would show who is top dog in Asia. If they have the nuclear weapons why give them up right now? There are many advantages when your country it is armed with nuclear weapons including the fact that your country belongs to a very exclusive club. And if they have plans to merge with South Korea â the nuclear weapons would give the merged country a higher status in world politics. This entire affair related to North Korea giving up their nuclear weapons it does not make sense to me - Even a starving North Korea. .
