Only 100 nuclear bombs needed to cause catastrophe around the world

Only 100 nuclear bombs needed to cause catastrophe around the world

Scientists believe the United States and Russian Federation should have no more than 100 nuclear weapons each - the optimal number to maintain world peace.

Given North Korea's record going back on agreements, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says the onus is on the rogue nation to prove this time they're genuine. Einhorn, who sat across the table from North Korean negotiators during previous talks on restraining the country's missiles program, said the elimination of the North Korean nuclear threat had occurred so far only within a "parallel universe" inside the president's mind. China, which fought the USA on behalf of the North in the 1950-53 Korean War, wants a stable, independent North Korea as a buffer with South Korea and the thousands of US troops stationed there.

Speculation that China is allowing more trade across its border with North Korea has grown recently, based largely on media reports citing anecdotal evidence.

China says the United Nations should consider easing or lifting the sanctions against North Korea.

This is at least the assessment of a new scientific study, which considers that the basic objective - the prevention of an attacker - is greatly achieved by the 100 nuclear.


A few hours ahead of his historic summit with Donald Trump - the first encounter between a leader of the isolated, nuclear-armed North and a sitting US President - Kim took a break from preparations for a waterfront stroll. "And I think we shouldn't be moving too fast with the resumption of inter-Korea cooperation projects and all these exchanges will have to wait until we're absolutely sure North Korea is taking substantial steps toward denuclearization". "Their long game is not to lose the short game - and that means everything they do can be viewed through the prism of regime survival".

Given Trump's announcement on Tuesday, it would appear Beijing has reason to be cautiously optimistic about United States power in the region, especially in regard to the South China Sea.

Another important problem is the United States' refusal to ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty and apparent intent to restart nuclear tests on its territory. After the USA invasion of Iraq in 2003, North Korea feared it could be the next target for regime change.

"Any improvement I think in the bilateral relationship for the US and North Korea, China could potentially see as a loss for China", said Paul Haenle, a former China director at the White House National Security Council in the Obama and George W. Bush administrations. They've achieved a lot due to their nuclear program.
