Tensions between the US and North Korea are rising again today, at a UN Conference on Disarmament, as both sides played up the threat posed by the other, and the necessity of preparing a response to the other’s “aggression.”
US Disarmament Ambassador Robert Wood was eager to emphasize the “growing threat” of North Korea, vowing that the US would use “the full range of capabilities” at its disposal to deal with North Korea, which he declared a top priority for the US.
North Korea’s own envoy insisted that their efforts to develop a nuclear deterrence was fully justifiable in the face of “apparent and real threats” from the US, noting that the US had made “constant nuclear threats” against North Korea.
Wood and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggested tha the US also saw a possible opening for “dialogue” with North Korea, with Tillerson praising North Korea for not having launched any missiles since August 5. He did, however, insist the US “need to see more on their part” before talks were possible.

Is the US disarming its nuclear weapons? If not their representative should have no opinion to offer on nations that don’t have any.
You’re absolutely right in asking if the USSA’s disarming its nuclear weapons .. The answer to that is a definite NO, and the idiotic lunatic representing the USSA at the UN shouldn’t have any opinion on nations that don’t have any nukes, such as Iran.
I’m still waiting on Donald Trump to fire that former Waffle House waitress (Nikki Haley) from the post of US Ambassador to the UN. How much longer do we have to put up with this idiotic banshee? Send her back to the Waffle House, at least she’s done a very good job there and got well with the customers and her fellow employees .. At the UN she’s been nothing but a total embarrassment to both the UN and to the USSA delegation.
