    On top of overtly genocidal threats, the Trump Administration has announced new terms: that they "will never accept a nuclear North Korea." But, the Democratic Peoples' Republic of Korea already has nuclear weapons. Does that mean a war is imminent?

    While the bipartisan warmongering is receiving no push-back from the mainstream media, Abby Martin interviews Tim Shorrock--journalist and expert on US-Korea relations--to learn what is left out of the debate and the potential cost of a new war.

    North Korea is continuing to expand its nuclear research center

    Satellite images of North Korea's Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center show that "improvements to the infrastructure ... are continuing at a rapid pace," analysts from the 38north website said. After President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met earlier this month in Singapore, they issued a joint statement agreeing to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," without sharing any details on when and how this will happen. 38north founder Joel Wit said he does not "find it surprising at all" that work is ongoing at the site, since "we don't have a deal yet, we just have a general commitment." 38north's report concludes that uranium enrichment appears to be underway at the site, which currently makes enough material to produce two or three bombs every two years.
