South Korea advisory body calls for its own U.S. tactical nukes as it meets with Park

October 2016SOUTH KOREA President Park Geun-hye’s advisory panel on unification policy has proposed a reintroduction of US tactical nuclear weapons and the constant stationing of other advanced strategic assets on the peninsula as deterrence against North Korea’s evolving threats. In a recent paper, the National Unification Advisory Council made an array of policy suggestions, raising the need to better utilize top-notch US weapons systems such as the F-22 stealth fighter and B-2 nuclear bomber.
On home ground, Seoul should bring forward the establishment of its own Kill Chain and Korea Air and Missile Defense pre-emptive strike schemes, which are currently scheduled for the early 2020s to be used with the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-missile system expected to be deployed here late next year. “To explore the reinstatement of US tactical nuclear weapons and the permanent placement of some state-of-the-art US strategic assets inside the South could serve as pressure on not only North Korea, but also China over its sanctions against the North,” the report reads.
“(During the Cold War,) the US’ deployment of Pershing II missiles in Europe against the then Soviet Union’s SS nuclear-equipped missiles helped place the Soviet on the defensive in their strategic weapons race and eventually served as a factor behind its collapse.” The NUAC also called for a comprehensive scheme to overhaul the impact of international sanctions against the communist state such as by creating a new expert group here apart from the UN mechanism. If Pyongyang carries out further provocations, additional steps should be taken to bar civilian trade and the dispatch of workers overseas as well as expand the blacklist of individuals and entities, it said.

Presided over by the president, the council writes a quarterly paper to be submitted to Cheong Wa Dae, which contains a set of policy suggestions drawn up through discussions and deliberations among experts. The latest report was handed over late September, officials said. Later on Thursday, Park met with 530 international members of the panel from 92 countries, who were gathered in Seoul for a four-day conference. A focal point is whether she will look at the proposed ideas afresh, despite having reaffirmed Seoul’s commitment to a nuclear-free peninsula. Since Pyongyang’s fourth and fifth nuclear tests this year, some senior lawmakers and analysts have been calling for the allies to bring tactical nuclear weapons here, if Seoul is not to take the path toward its own nuclear armament.
Choi Kang, vice president of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul, said that any armament move would face extreme difficulty in gaining acceptance worldwide and could also bring political, diplomatic, economic and military repercussions to Seoul. “South Korea should constantly emphasize that it will not need to build nuclear weapons if the US guarantees its extended deterrence in a more concrete and practical manner, but if not, it will inevitably be placed in a position (of having) to pursue its own bomb-making capabilities,” he wrote on the think tank’s blog Thursday. “Meanwhile, South Korea may argue for the redeployment of tactical nukes starting with the hosting of dual capable military assets.”  –Korean Herald

    Asking for and getting are two different things. US ships off the coast no doubt carry special weapons and if needed could be deployed. Tensions will get worst and this suggestion may cause North Korea to make a military move.

    If I was to deploy such weapons, Pusan Area would be where I would look.

  2. tonic says:

    The US and Uk are not someone I would like to cross, re. nuclear weapons. Full stop.

  3. Dennis E. says:

    Oh yes! South Korea having its own nukes. Bad idea.

    Obviously, anyway a Utopian event is anylized, assuming the pretense “not if, WHEN?”, collateral damage rule’s, and realizing the “Herd Mentality” is reality, only the few who have a “self preservation mindset” will be sustainable while sh’t reins down hell. Its a very fine line of a belief in a higher power, I call GOD, superior firepower & basic fight or flight. That combined option is not necessarily in order, and always be literate of your reserves. The main instinct of defensive posture as taught to us as, brainwashed into us from a baby is bullhockey. A man has got to know his teams limitations, and must execute all options without hesitation, or your teams delay to respond, game over. My opionion of The country, AND the world at this point in time is at critical mass, perhaps it was destiny that edged out that biatch to support Trump, personally, we had no choice, voted Trump all in. Everybody leverages everybody, the sooner that is realized and used to advantage is when the losser cries, f’ckn bleeding heart liberals need termination w/ extreme predudice, and wont be hard to do since they took away their own guns. Stupid Kalifornia Politicians, shame on you, and dont worry about surrendering all the high cap magazines, AR weapons, etcetera, trust me, “seriously” we will comply!!
    LOL Biatches, you can have them when you pry them out of my bloody dead fingers, and my family fingers! AND all of the Law Enforcement Fam, not the politician side, talkin the Forces, will be way ahead of the masses, the herd and EVAC just about the time you need us!!
