This is a lie being forced on the people by the corporate-owned Western media”, said Putin during an emotionally charged Q&A session in Sochi.
“They know they can easily provoke the North Koreans and they will react, but the story that they are a threat is false.””I will tell you the facts about North Korea:
They don’t have nuclear bombs. They don’t have Western-controlled banks. They don’t depend on the US dollar. What they do have is a land full of wealth in unmined minerals.”
According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, President Putin has “had some time away to reflect” on the US-North Korean conflict and believes that the situation has “gone too far”.
Putin went on to say that Kim Jong-un “would never launch a real attack, it’d be suicidal. Pyongyang knows this and so does Washington”.
At an event on Tuesday on the topic of Americans over-using opioids, Donald Trump said: “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
President Trump made the comment in response to an article in the Washington Post that stated: North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment.
The analysis, completed last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency, comes on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country’s atomic arsenal.
The United States calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.Up to now, the only real evidence of North Korea having weapons of mass destruction is what is being pushed in the mainstream media.According to Mr. Putin, it’s “the same thing that happened in Iraq and Libya”.
In the situations with both Iraq and Lybia, both countries were invaded by the West and their leaders were executed for war crimes without any real proof.
What Putin has stated about the real reasons for attacking North Korea also ring true.
Their banking system isn’t controlled by the IMF and they don’t have a Rothschild-controlled world bank, nor are they dependent on the US dollar.
It’s also reported that the country has between $6-10 trillion in untapped natural resources.
According to Quartz, below the nation’s mostly mountainous surface are vast mineral reserves, including iron, gold, magnesite, zinc, copper, limestone, molybdenum, graphite, and more—all told about 200 kinds of minerals.
Also present are large amounts of rare earth metals, which factories in nearby countries need to make smartphones and other high-tech products.
Estimates as to the value of the nation’s mineral resources have varied greatly over the years, made difficult by secrecy and lack of access.
North Korea itself has made what are likely exaggerated claims about them.According to one estimate from a South Korean state-owned mining company, they’re worth over $6 trillion.
Another from a South Korean research institute puts the amount closer to $10 trillion.
