The Norks have Nukes because of the Grenada Invasion

So says the Washington Post.

Washington Post wrote:

Kim Il Sung knew that just as Grenada’s military could not match the powerful United States military in battle, neither could his military stop a U.S. invasion. He knew that he needed a far greater deterrent to keep the Americans at bay and protect his regime. Thus, three years after the U.S. invasion of Grenada, the North Korean leadership established a Ministry of Atomic Energy Industry, which formally declared Kim Il Sung’s intention to develop a nuclear weapons program.

The North Korean media still regularly refers to the “illegal” invasion of Grenada as evidence of Washington’s ambitions to dominate the world. This event, and others like it, influence how North Korea negotiates with the United States.

North Korea will never abandon its nuclear weapons program, because it believes that without it, nothing would deter an American invasion aimed at regime change. North Korea will not even establish a dialogue with the United States if the Trump administration insists on Kim Jong Un dropping his nuclear weapons program.

If only the Revo had nuclear weapons, the RMC will still be running things in St. George's.

Read it all.

Re: The Norks have Nukes because of the Grenada Invasion

Now it is the Washington Post, and I should not ask questions about that story, but it have me shaking me head.  How can little Grenada, have anything to do with NK and America?

I have never heard of any assistance from NK to the Grenadian revolution. If I remember correctly not ah thing was done on the stadium under the Bishop regime.

As a solider in the early stages of the PRG, not once did I hear from the PRG about any help from the North Koreans.  I heard Russia, Nicaragua and Cuba.

In me early days as a revo person I did believe in the None Align movement or what the hell it was.  I do not even think Nk was in that movement.

Honestly ah think that story is ah bunch ah BULLSHEET.  That Trump like in North Korea, was not even born yet during the Grenada Revolution, and the American invasion that Nut case was not even born.

Excuse me but ah must question, if that story has any legs, ah really doh think so

Thanks for posting this! I had not heard of the N. Korea connection either. Unfortunately, this is just one more reporter that sees the Invasion as pure American aggression.
