Trump Jr. to deliver foreign policy speech during business trip to India
249 norwso > South Korean President Moon Jae-in has dismissed the possibility of deploying nuclear weapons in his country, warning it could "lead to a nuclear arms race in northeast Asia." > "I do not agree that South Korea needs to develop our own nuclear weapons or relocate tactical nuclear weapons in the face of North Korea's nuclear threat," he told CNN Thursday in his first televised interview since North Korea's sixth nuclear test. > Though he was not supportive of deploying or pursuing nuclear weapons, Moon said South Korea "needs to develop our military capabilities in the face of North Korea's nuclear advancement." A recent Gallup Korea poll found 60% of respondents were in favor of South Korea having its own nuclear weapons, with 35% opposed.
188 jlitwinka There already is a nuclear arms race in Northeast Asia. South Korea just isn't a part of it
25 steiner_math South Korea doesn't need nukes because they have the US backing them. If anyone uses nukes on South Korea, the US would likely retaliate with nukes.
49 Highlandpizza The moment South Korea has nuclear weapons on it's soil as well as a missile defense system you better believe that China will respond with building more nuclear weapons and increasing it's military capacity to counter South Korea. A build up China will result in a build of Japan and India. Which will lead to China building up even more weapons. And don't be surprised if countries like Japan and Vietnam start to develop their own nuclear weapons program. A build up India will mean a counter build up by Pakistan. This general build up will result in a build up in almost the nations involved in the South China dispute.

5 TXGuns79 Why would SK need to spend time, money, or the bad PR developing, building and storing nuclear arms? There are a couple of US "boomer" subs sitting on the ocean floor carrying enough to melt all of NK and half of China. The world knows that the US holds the nuclear deterrent for SK, Japan etc. Like South Africa - you don't need your own when you have a solid, larger allie holding enough to go around.
