The first question is whether or not that CIA and South Korean National Intelligence Service really did conspire to use a biochemical agent to assassinate North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un in 2014? If the answer is yes, then will the US and South Korea turn over those involved in the assassination plot to North Korean officials as they are demanding.
Last week, North Korea made a fairly sensational allegation: that in 2014, the CIA and South Korea’s National Intelligence Service conspired to assassinate Kim Jong Un with a biochemical weapon.
In vivid detail, the North Korean Ministry of State Security described how U.S. and South Korean officials “ideologically corrupted and bribed” a North Korean citizen working in Russia. The plan was as follows: The alleged agent would return home to North Korea, wait for a public event, then use some kind of poisonous substance on top regime officials. Pyongyang suggested that South Korean agents provided satellite communication equipment and money to this alleged would-be killer. The United States, according to this account, provided a biochemical substance — a delayed-action radioactive or “nano poisonous” gas.
North Korea did not offer any evidence or specifics on how the alleged plot was foiled. The suspect was identified only by his last name — Kim, which is a fairly common last name on the Korean Peninsula…
Hopefully, President Trump will not comply with the North Korean demands. If North Korea dares use the four Americans currently being held hostage as some kind of pawns in the deal, I hope Trump still does not cave in to the demands. We all know how North Korean law works – executed as charged regardless of evidence.
