    Kim Jong Nuke must not be so patience, must fire all the nukes at Japan & Seoul ASAP. NK submarines endurance is not as good as Russians, wasting time means losing war. Push the button now! Too long then US Navy may had found and track NK subs already. Regardlessly, Ang Moh Trump is SCARED for sure. Unlike where he played cowboy with Syrian and ISIS.

    A sudden surge in number of new missiles and ICBMs at the parade this week, may indicate that my recent proposal for Beijing to supply Kim Jong Nuke with retired old version of Chinese arsenals to conduct business with USA, had indeed been implemented. The missiles are hidden inside container tubes in transporter erector launcher (TEL) you can not see them, but the TELs looks all of similar with Russian / Chinese styles. Shocked the West to shit their pants. Media identified and analyses similarities with Chinese DF-26 & DF-31 missiles in these parade photos.

    I won't post the videos and photos because there are too many. If you want to see, pse click the URLs I pasted here:

    Amid regional “military hysteria,” North Korea has marked the 105th birth anniversary of its founding leader Kim Il-sung with a military parade in Pyongyang, where it for the first time publicly showcased its submarine-launched ballistic missiles as well as what appears to be a new type of ICBM.

    The country’s hereditary leader Kim Jong-un, wearing a black suit and white shirt and a tie, welcomed his country's bravest as he addressed thousands of soldiers who took part in the parade honoring his grandfather.

    Under the clear sky and to the sound of the military band, dozens of military vehicles and an entire army of soldiers passed through the country’s biggest square named in honor of Kim Il-sung, whose 105th birthday is being celebrated on Saturday.

    State TV showed images of the Pukkuksong-2 submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) on trucks for the first time as the country continues to pursue an aggressive military and nuclear deterrent policy.

    North Korea in February claimed that it successfully test-fired a surface-to-surface “medium long-range ballistic missile” known as the Pukkuksong-2, which is potentially capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

    North Korea also paraded what appeared to be a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

    "It's presumed to be a new ICBM. It seems longer than the existing KN-08 or KN-14 ICBMs," South Korean military official told Yonhap.

    Choe Ryong Hae – believed to be the second-most powerful official in the country – in his address to the soldiers during the parade, blamed Donald Trump for "creating a war situation" in the Korean Peninsula promising to respond with all out war to US aggression.

    "We will respond to an all-out war with an all-out war and a nuclear war with our style of a nuclear attack," Choe warned, according to AP, during the parade.

    The country's biggest national holiday called the "Day of the Sun" came amid growing speculation that Pyongyang could conduct its sixth nuclear test. Amid growing tensions with the US President Donald Trump who promised to "take care" of North Korea, the communist officials told foreign journalists on Tuesday that a “big and important event” is expected to take place.

    But on Thursday amid much hype and secrecy, the North Korean leader surprised the press by showcasing a new skyscraper-lined street in Pyongyang.

    "Ryomyong Street is an accomplishment that the North wants to promote on the economic front," an official at Seoul's unification ministry, told South Korean Yonhap news. "It may hope to show something to display its nuclear and missile capabilities."

    Ahead of Saturday’s festive parade, Pyongyang urged Washington to stop its “military hysteria” and come to its “senses” – or otherwise face a merciless response in case of any provocations against North Korea.

    As tensions heighten in the peninsula, China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, warned that confrontation between the US and North Korea had escalated to such a point that “a military conflict may start at any moment.”

    North Korea displayed what appeared to be new long-range and submarine-based missiles on the 105th birth anniversary of its founding father, Kim Il Sung, on Saturday, as a nuclear-powered U.S. aircraft carrier group steamed towards the region.

    Missiles appeared to be the main theme of a giant military parade, with Kim's grandson, leader Kim Jong Un, taking time to greet the commander of the Strategic Forces, the branch that oversees the missile arsenal.

    A U.S. Navy attack on a Syrian airfield this month with Tomahawk missiles raised questions about U.S. President Donald Trump's plans for reclusive North Korea, which has conducted several missile and nuclear tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions, regularly threatening to destroy the United States.

    Kim Jong Un, looking relaxed in a dark suit and laughing with aides, oversaw the festivities on the "Day of the Sun" at Pyongyang's main Kim Il Sung Square.

    Goose-stepping soldiers and marching bands filled the square, next to the Taedonggang River that flows through Pyongyang, in the hazy spring sunshine, followed by tanks, multiple-launch rocket systems and other weapons.

    Single-engine propeller-powered planes flew in a 105 formation overhead.

    Unlike at some previous parades attended by Kim, there did not appear to be a senior Chinese official in attendance. China is North Korea's lone major ally but has spoken out against its missile and nuclear tests and has supported U.N. sanctions. China on Friday again called for talks to defuse the crisis.

    Weapons analysts said they believed some of the missiles on display were new types of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM).

    The North has said it has developed and would launch a missile that can strike the mainland United States but officials and experts believe it is some time away from mastering all the necessary technology.

    "EARLY DAYS"

    North Korea showed two new kinds of ICBM enclosed in canister launchers mounted on the back of trucks, suggesting Pyongyang was working towards a "new concept" of ICBM, said Melissa Hanham, a senior research associate at the U.S.-based Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California.

    "However, North Korea has a habit of showing off new concepts in parades before they ever test or launch them," Hanham said.

    "It is still early days for these missile designs."

    The Pukkuksong submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM) were also on parade. It was the first time North Korea had shown the missiles, which have a range of more than 1,000 km (600 miles), at a military parade.

    Displaying more than one of the missiles indicates North Korea is progressing with its plan to base a missile on a submarine, which are hard to detect, said Joshua Pollack, editor of the Washington-based Nonproliferation Review.

    "It suggests a commitment to this program," said Pollack. "Multiple SLBMs seems like a declaration of intent to advance the program."

    North Korea, still technically at war with the South after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce but not a treaty, has on occasion conducted missile or nuclear tests to coincide with big political events and often threatens the United States, South Korea and Japan.

    Choe Ryong Hae, a close aide to Kim Jong Un, addressed the packed square with a characteristically bellicose warning to the United States.

    "If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with annihilating strike, and we will respond to full-out war with full-out war and to nuclear war with our style of nuclear strike warfare," he said.

    PENCE TO VISIT SOUTH

    State news agency KCNA said the Trump administration's "serious military hysteria" had reached a "dangerous phase which can no longer be overlooked".

    The United States has warned that a policy of "strategic patience" with North Korea is over. U.S. Vice President Mike Pence travels to South Korea on Sunday on a long-planned 10-day trip to Asia.

    China has also stepped up economic pressure on North Korea. It banned all imports of North Korean coal on Feb. 26 under U.N. sanctions, cutting off the North's most important export product.

    China's national airline, Air China, weeks ago canceled some flights to Pyongyang due to poor demand but it has not suspended all flights there, it said on Friday, denying a report by Chinese state broadcaster CCTV that all flights run by the airline between the two cities were to be suspended.

    China's Global Times newspaper, which is published by the People's Daily, the Communist Party's official paper, said North Korea must have felt the shockwave from the 11-ton "mother of all bombs" dropped by U.S. forces on Islamic State-linked fighters in Afghanistan on Thursday.

    "It would be nice if the bomb could frighten Pyongyang, but its actual impact may just be the opposite," it said in an editorial.

    North Korea on Friday denounced the United States for bringing "huge nuclear strategic assets" to the region as the USS Carl Vinson strike group with a flag-ship nuclear-powered aircraft carrier steamed closer.

    In Dandong, China's main border post with North Korea, hundreds of North Koreans gathered at a cultural center carrying floral displays.

    With the men wearing pins adorned with photos of Kim Il Sung, and the women in brightly colored traditional dress, crowds lined up to bow to portraits of their state founder before touring an exhibition of photos and North Korean paintings.

    KCNA was gushing in its praise of Kim Il Sung, recalling the time he met former U.S. president Jimmy Carter in 1994.

    "Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was so fascinated by his personality as to say that Kim Il Sung is greater than that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln put together, eulogizing him as the great sun god of human destiny." it said.

    Analyzing North Korea's Missile Parade: Prescription For Fear, Dose Of Reality

    An unprecedented number eyes were focused on Pyongyang yesterday for this year's Day of The Sun military parade. Largely this was because the rhetoric between the US and North Korea has never been so hot, and there has been real posturing to go along with it. Intelligence agencies and journalists alike watch the display closely to see what new military capabilities the Kim regime will put on display, and as a result you probably woke up to headlines like "North Korea shows off sinister new ICBM" and the like.

    After North Korean Missiles Fly, THAAD Missile Defense Suddenly Arrives By Tyler Rogoway Posted in The War Zone

    It seems like many are quick to forget that this event happens on parade grounds, not a military technology testing and proving ground. Parades usually have floats, and big ominous looking missile canisters, and even missiles themselves, can be just that—elaborate displays—and nothing more.

    Here's video of the whole parade:

    We know what missile capabilities the North Koreans have actually tested, and what remains on their wish list. The War Zone was among the first to warn of Kim's changing missile development strategy, and we have followed every major launch very closely since.

    There is no question North Korea has gained incredible momentum towards a true intercontinental ballistic missile and submarine-launched ballistic missile capability over the last year, but that doesn't mean rolling a big transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) with a massive missile canister on top proves that there is anything inside.
    AP

    The event featured a bizarre but unsurprising mix of imagery.

    It is best to think of this event as a place at which Pyongyang can make their end-game aspirations a brief but synthetic reality—a blank canvas for which to paint their most deadly hopes and dreams.

    So no, just because it rolls through Kim Il Sung Square does not make it real—at least not real yet. But that also doesn't mean that it is all fake—far from it. Once again, many of these systems are actually in testing, and outgrowths of their original designs are both logical and expected.

    With these key caveats in mind, here is our breakdown of the parade's technological highlights:

    Here is a good cheat sheet to remind you of North Korea's various ballistic missiles, there is even a more expansive list at the link to CSIS's Missile Threat website posted on the tweet below:
    KN-11 Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile

    For the first time, North Korea publicly showed off its KN-11 "Polaris" sub-launched ballistic missile. This is a real system in development that has been successfully fired from the country's only Sinpo class submarine. The missile is thought to use solid fuel as a propellant and is in the medium-range class. Being submarine launched, it would be able to be fired outside the engagement zone of THAAD.
    AP
    AP
    AP
    KN-11 MRBM

    This tracked transporter-erector-launcher is a familiar system that carries another real missile system that is currently in testing—the medium-range, solid fueled KN-15. The missile is a land-based version of the KN-11 seen above, and was tested successfully just last February. Its tracked TEL would allow it to hide in many places, even far off-road, and its fairly mature state makes it one of North Korea's most credible emerging missile threats.
    AP
    Scud SRBM with active maneuvering control surfaces

    This Scud adaption that uses what looks like an early Scud-tracked TEL is interesting in that its nose section appears to have maneuvering fins. This would be an indication that North Korea is working on, or has, a maneuvering variant of the popular short-ranged ballistic missile.

    The ability to make hard maneuvers during its flight makes intercepting the missile much more challenging, especially during the terminal phase of flight. Also, North Korea has long shown interest in anti-ship ballistic missile technology to counter US, South Korean, and Japanese naval power. Adapting the Scud to go after nearby threatening ships would seem like a logical, if not reaching move for the DPRK, especially since the capability is now proliferating to multiple countries, some of which are very friendly with North Korea (Iran).
    AP
    Tractor-trailer mystery TEL

    This massive missile canister hauled by a simpler tractor-trailer TEL is for an unknown missile, although it could be for the liquid-fueled KN-14 ICBM that has been in development for some time. The missile is thought to be an outgrowth of the KN-08, but with a shorter, blunter ablative nose cone and featuring two instead of three stages.

    The configuration is similar to that used by China for its DF-31 TELs. Currently the KN-14 may be North Korea's most credible ICBM program as components of the missile have been seen mocked up as a whole, and in storage at key North Korea's nuclear and missile sites. Still, there is no indication the missile has actually been successfully flight tested as of yet, although there are indications that a failed test may have occurred in October of 2016.
    AP
    AP
    North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile?

    These impressive TELs, which we have seen in past April 15th parades, were seen this year carrying imposing launch canisters, and were the highlight of the display for many. Their appearance also resulted in plenty of news outlets proclaiming North Korea was showing off a new massive solid-fuel ICBM.

    Once again, we are only seeing a canister and a pre-existing TEL here, and the canister it carries could have no intended occupant—and least not yet. On the other hand, it could show the intended configuration for an operational KN-08, which is longer than its KN-14 cousin having three distinct stages, or a missile based on it but having adopted solid propellant as a fuel source for even just one or two of its stages. The KN-08 missile, North Korea's largest (by length) land-mobile ballistic missile design, has been in development for years and has even been displayed on the same TEL but without a canister in the past.

    On the other hand, sure, this could be designed to carry a massive, totally new solid fueled ICBM akin to Russia's road mobile configuration of its Topol ICBM. But really, that is unlikely in the near term, and like we discussed in the opening of this post, this TEL configuration is more likely a "blank slate" aspirational piece of propaganda and disinformation than a real system that will be entering into testing in the near term.
    AP
    AP
    Stretched BM-25 Musudan IRBM

    This missile is puzzling, to say the least. At first glance it almost appears to be a new version of the KN-08, but without its distinctive three-tier layout. Instead it seems that the missile is nearly un-tapered at its second stage joint, and its nose section has been completely remodeled. Upon closer examination it really seems more plausible that it is a lengthened BM-25/HS-10 Musudan IRBM. It is even being hauled around in a Musudan's TEL. Not just that, but it matches the black and white paint job of Musudan missiles that have been test fired over the last year.

    Even though its success record remains poor, the Musudan has been successfully test fired, and this new and improved version would be a threatening development for the region. There is also the possibility that this new version could use solid fuel for its upper stage.
    AP
    AP
    New coastal defense system

    The inclusion of what appears to be a coastal defense system built around a land-based version the Kh-35 anti-ship cruise missile was also a major point of intrigue during the parade. It was fairly recently discovered that North Korea had received the type from Russia in the mid-1990s. North Korea has since put its own knock-off into production, which it has also exported. Now it looks like they put the missile to use in this system. The TELs tracked configuration would allow it to rove rugged areas of the North Korean coastline, making it exceptionally hard to target and kill.

    Like the aforementioned Scud with potential anti-ship aspirations, the existence of this coastal defense system is another tell that North Korea is working to, or at least wanting to, build out an anti-access/area-denial strategy to a greater degree than it ever has in the past.
    AP
    Upgraded Pokpung-ho main battle tank

    North Korea's indigenous Pokpung-ho main battle tank appears to have been upgraded with some sort of remote anti-aircraft turret housing a pair of SA-16 Igla man-portable air defense system (MANPADS) missiles. It is unclear how target acquisition would work, but one would think it has a camera to lock onto low flying enemy aircraft, namely US and South Korea attack and reconnaissance helicopters.

    On the right side of the turret (as pictured) there is also what appears to be two anti-tank missiles, likely the locally built and somewhat archaic "Firebird" system, which itself is developed from the generations old 9K111. Supposedly the system recently received a laser-guidance upgrade.
    AP
    New ground-mobile point defense system?

    This ground mobile point air defense system appears to be new, at least to my eyes. It is unclear what type of missiles it uses, although some sort of indigenous command-link guidance and boosted variant of the SA-16 is possible. Still, those strange looking nose elements of whatever is inside the launchers are odd. Also it is unclear how the system would search for targets. Maybe that is a radar array above the left side launch canister that pops up and rotates.
    AP
    AP
    Tricked out special ops

    North Korea's special operations forces looked pretty spooky during their march. They were wearing some pretty cool camo, sporting night vision goggles, and toting Type 88s (local AK-74 derivative) with top-folding stocks and helical high-capacity magazines which store at least 100 rounds.

    These soldiers have the primary mission of infiltrating behind South Korean lines via tunnels, submarines and An-2 biplanes to wreak absolute havoc on the South Korean populace during a time of open warfare between the two estranged countries.

    Last but not least, here is a good look at the S class armored Mercedes limos that port around Kim Jong Un and his top staff.

    Intercontinental ballistic missile-sized canisters among bevy of new missiles
    Display comes as tensions on the Korean Peninsula have spiked to alarming levels

    (CNN)North Korea put its adversaries on notice Saturday, when it showed off a bevy of new missiles and launchers at its annual military parade.
    Pyongyang showed off two new intercontinental ballistic missile-sized canisters as well as displaying its submarine-launched ballistic missile and a land-based version of the same for the first time, according to analysts.

    If North Korea has ICBMs, it could give it the ability to strike targets in the mainland US and Europe. The shorter range ballistic missiles displayed Saturday, meanwhile, are a threat to countries in the Asian region.
    North Korea's display comes as tensions on the Korean Peninsula have spiked to alarming levels.

    A missile believed to be the Pukguksong-1, a submarine-launched ballistic missile.
    The US Navy dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group to the region last weekend, and US President Donald Trump has been tweeting this week that if China can't rein in North Korea's nuclear program the US will.
    "The Vinson was sent out to make a statement. North Korea responded by showing off the most new missile hardware we've ever seen in a parade before," said Melissa Hanham, senior research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in California.
    One of the biggest surprises of Saturday's military parade in Pyongyang was two mobile canisters that could contain ICBMs larger than anything North Korea has ever produced.
    "They both probably design concepts. We've never seen them in the wild," Hanham said.
    "We don't know what -- if anything -- was inside the canisters since North Korea hasn't publicly shown off or tested any missile of that size before," analyst Ankit Panda wrote on The Diplomat.
    "We can infer given the size of the canister and the fact that it was paraded on Saturday that Pyongyang wants the world to know that it is actively working toward at least two types of solid-fuel, canisterized ICBMs," Panda wrote.

    The fact that any new ICBM would be in a canister is important because it means those missiles would likely be solid-fueled, analysts said.
    Solid-fueled missiles can be deployed faster and hidden better from satellite detection than their liquid-fueled counterparts.
    And the large size also means the missiles could have a longer range.
    'A message to the United States'
    "It certainly appears to be a message to the United States that they're capable of threatening the US homeland. That's certainly their objective," Adam Mount, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, told CNN.
    Hanham said other land and submarine-launched ballistic missiles were shown in public for the first time Saturday. The land-based version is known as the KN-15, while Pyongyang's submarine-launched weapon is known as the KN-11 missile.

    A missile believed to be the Pukguksong-2, a land-based variant of the Pukguksong-1.
    She took special note of the launcher the KN-15 was on.
    "It uses caterpillar treads which means it can go off road more easily, which mean they can hide them more easily," Hanham said.
    North Korea has under 500 miles of paved roads, Panda wrote, and previous wheeled-launchers could risk damage to the missile operating off those.
    Hanham said the tracked launch vehicles were made in North Korea, which means Pyongyang did not have to break sanctions imposed by China to obtain them.
    Despite all the displays on Saturday, analysts cautioned against overreaction, noting that North Korea's missile tests have had a checkered record of success, and adding that a missile in a parade does not necessarily mean it's operational.

    None of those missiles actually work properly so Trump has nothing to fear. Another mother of a bomb and fatso will be history.

    媒体称朝鲜阅兵现中国卡车搭载导弹 外交部回应
    2017年04月18日18:22 外交部网站

      原标题:2017年4月18日外交部发言人陆慷主持例行记者会

      应俄罗斯联邦总统办公厅主任瓦伊诺邀请,中共中央政治局委员、中央书记处书记、中央办公厅主任栗战书将于4月25日至27日访问俄罗斯。

      中共中央办公厅主任和俄罗斯联邦总统办公厅主任2014年建立了磋商机制,并且保持年度互访。栗战书主任此次访俄期间,将会见俄罗斯联邦领导人,并且同瓦伊诺主任围绕保障两国元首交往、更好地推动落实两国元首达成的深化两国合作共识进行深入磋商和交流。

      相信栗战书主任此次访俄将进一步增进两国政治互信,更好服务两国元首交往,为中俄全面战略协作伙伴关系在高水平发展注入新动力。

      问:据报道,日本政府14日内阁会议确定了答复在野党民进党议员的答辩书,称教育机构可以在符合教育基本法的基础上,判断使用希特勒自传《我的奋斗》中“有益、适当”的内容。请问中方对此有何评论?

      答:《我的奋斗》是本什么样的书,全世界都早有公论。日本政府偏偏同意选择这样一本书的内容作为青少年学生的教材,在日本国内引起了高度关切,这完全可以理解。法西斯主义和军国主义思想是引发第二次世界大战的祸根,必须得到彻底清算和根除。在这一涉及大是大非的历史问题上,容不得半点暧昧和模糊。我们敦促日方深刻反省和汲取历史教训,以正确的历史观教育年轻一代,旗帜鲜明地警惕和反对战争有害思想,以实际行动取信于亚洲邻国和国际社会。

      问:来自韩国的朝鲜阅兵式相关图片显示朝方可能使用了中国卡车搭载导弹。中方对此有何评论?

      答:我们在这里多次说过,中国和朝鲜两个邻国保持着正常交往,包括一些正常的经贸往来。同时,作为联合国成员国、作为安理会常任理事国,中国一向严格履行自己的国际义务,包括根据安理会决议所承担的国际义务。有关各方也必须清楚,除了安理会确定的一些义务外,对于任何其他单方面的制裁措施,中方原则上都是反对的,必须划清这个界限。

      问:4月25日是朝鲜建军纪念日,中方是否有派代表参加的计划?

      答:中朝一直保持着传统友好交往。具体有什么安排,我们都会及时发布消息。

      问:中国美国商会刚刚发布了年度报告,敦促美国政府进一步努力,促使中国创造公平营商环境。中方对此有何评论?

      答:这个问题我可以在这里作原则回答,你如果需要进一步了解具体的政策信息,可以向中国政府的主管部门去询问。

      关于投资环境问题,根据中国商务部统计,去年美国对华实际投资同比增长了52.6%。作为发展中国家,中国市场开放的速度和幅度有目共睹。中国已是最开放的发展中经济体之一。中国致力于进一步扩大对外开放,我们也欢迎各国来华投资,也将继续为外资企业提供越来越多的投资机会,营造越来越好的投资环境。我不知道你有没有注意到,今年1月17日,中国国务院印发了《关于扩大对外开放积极利用外资若干措施的通知》,也证明了中方在进一步扩大对外开放、创造公平竞争环境、加强吸引外资方面的决心和诚意。同时,我们希望其他国家也能为中国投资者打开大门,让彼此投资贸易合作能够在更加公平、透明、开放的环境里健康发展。

      问:关于朝鲜阅兵中出现中国卡车的问题,中方是否担心对朝出口的技术包括两用技术?也就是说中方公司可能认为他们出口的技术是民用,但其实被朝方用作军事用途?

      答:刚才我已经说过,作为联合国成员国,中国严格履行自己的国际义务,包括根据联合国安理会决议所必须承担的义务。与此同时,我们也同包括朝鲜在内的其他各国保持着正常的经贸往来。至于你说到的“两用物项”问题,第一,安理会决议本身对具体的“两用物项”哪些是管控物项、哪些属于禁运范围,是有明确规定的。只要是属于安理会决议禁运范畴的,中方都严格遵守有关规定。就中国自身的出口控制政策而言,随着我们的防扩散出口管制政策逐步到位,我们的政策也是基于清单管理的,所以这点你完全可以放心。

      问:第一,据报道,韩国还没收到过出席“一带一路”国际合作高峰论坛的邀请,分析认为主要原因是韩国将于5月9日,就是高峰论坛开幕前五天进行总统选举,现在无法确定出席人员。如果在这五天之内韩国决定愿意参加,在技术方面这是可行的吗?第二,朝鲜方面是否有高级别官员出席高峰论坛?

      答:我先回答你的第二个问题。今天上午王毅外长已经宣布了应习近平主席邀请,将出席5月14日到15日举行的“一带一路”国际合作高峰论坛的外国国家元首和政府首脑名单。

      关于你问的第一个问题,你刚才自己已经部分回答了这个问题。王毅外长上午已经介绍了对这次邀请的考虑和最终确定的名单。你可以上外交部网站查询。至于你提到的一个假设性问题,你知道我们在这里从来不回答假设性的问题。

      问:中国政府近期多次谈到朝鲜局势,能否介绍最新情况,你认为现在局势是趋于缓和了还是更加紧张了?

      答:从主观愿望上来说,我们跟你一样,也希望半岛紧张状态能够尽快降低下来,局势能够得到缓解,所有有关各方能够尽快回到谈判桌前,特别是能够营造出一个有利于通过对话协商妥善解决半岛核问题的氛围。这是中方长期以来努力的一个目标,也是不久前中方提出“双暂停”倡议初衷。但是你也知道,半岛核问题的起源并不在中方,症结也不在中方,最关键的当事方也不是中方。作为半岛近邻,我们当然有自身的安全关切和利益关切,也为解决半岛核问题作出了自己的努力。同时,我们真地希望所有有关各方都能够相向而行,共同作出这样的努力。

    中国的最大错误一直不 执迷不悟。就是盲目的《文明》。这是确凿的绝望的死路。一点都不实际。

    《现代文明》是贪婪无知愚蠢耗尽地球资源的全球集体大自杀蠢行。绝无希望可以80亿100亿人继续《和平共存》,地球即将耗尽的资源绝对无法供应这么多人生存的。
