A friend of mine suggested I start following Vipin Narang on twitter. He is an Associate Professor of Political Science at MIT and a member of MIT's Security Studies Program studying mainly N Korea. So far I am impressed.

Here is a couple of tweets he retweeted.

Thanks from imaginethat, Camelot and leekohler2

Kim plans to be an exporter of nuclear weapons/technology to Russia/China-approved regimes. I feel that more strongly every day.
Thanks from Hollywood and leekohler2

Isn't complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization what we've been told is the goal?

Meanwhile, Kim's nuclear facilities are humming along.

As we should have expected...considering the screwballs Trump has in his close inner circle of advisers, the prospects of peace with North Korea will vanish like a mirage....just hope all of you centrist, missile-lovin Democrats are happy now, since the Democrat mouthpieces in the NY Times, WaPo and Politico were so alarmed about the prospects for peace in Korea a couple of months back!

The only thing that can prevent the inevitable showdown and the resulting annihilation of the entire Korean Peninsula...and possibly worse, is if the South Korean president- Moon, has enough control over his government now to force his generals to back down, and tells Trump and the US to step aside also, as the Koreans take it among themselves to end the War that has been ongoing since the armistice was signed in 1953.

But it's been okay for the US to export nukes and nuclear weapons technology to their allies: Israel, South Africa(under apartheid) and Pakistan!

What is basis of the story that North Korea is exporting nukes and nuclear technology? Cause records from the former apartheid government in South Africa show how Israel and the US set up their nuclear program prior to the end of apartheid, and the need for a rapid relocation of that secret program before Nelson Mandela took over.

If there is a clear example of a nation developing a nuclear program to deter foreign threats, it's North Korea! They would have already been subject to a friendly regime change operation if they didn't have them. So if Trump or any future US government is honest about its intentions, North Korea has presented their security requirements before they will end their nuclear programs.

Of course they will give a nice flowery statement to justify their selection. What else would they say? Gee, we're in love with the guy because we the committee being the politicians that we are are going to give him that award to strengthen him?

Geir Lundstad - Secretary of Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize Committee for 25 years, employee of Nobel Institution, professor, historian.

Voting Committee Members - Five politicians selected by the Norwegian Parliament.

You seriously gonna fall on your sword on the words of a statement by politicians over that of a scholar that served the Nobel Institution for 25 years and whom has no skin in the game other than explaining the rationale behind Obama's selection?

---------------

Obama: I have almost 30 honorary degrees and I did get the Nobel Peace Prize.

Colbert: Really, what was that for?

Obama: Well, to be honest I still don't know.
