Former PM Nominee Wants S. Korea To Acquire Nuclear Technology

Article from Daum:

Former Prime Minister appointee Moon Chang-geuk was forced to withdraw his nomination on June 14th amid scathing public criticism after he said in a church lecture that the colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula by Japan was God’s will. President Park Geun-hye made his appointment on June 4th after the Prime Minister offered to resign over the the government’s lax response to the Sewol ferry incident, which resulted in more than 300 lives lost and several still missing.

Former Premier Nominee Said, “South Korea should Possess Nuclear Arms Technology.”

He claimed, “The issue of whether to pursue the reunification of two Koreas needs to be put to a referendum, bearing in mind the possible conflicts within South Korea.”

Moon Chang-geuk, a former prime minister appointee, said in Washington on Oct. 20th (local time), “Though South Korea needs to adhere to its international pledge not to possess any nuclear weapons, it should not renounce the attempts to seek the acquisition of technology to produce nuclear arms.

The former journalist made his remarks when he attended a seminar titled “President Park Geun-hye’s Case for Reunification and South Korea-United States Relations.” He added, “North Korea won’t relinquish its nuclear arms, and South Korea is placed just under Pyongyang’s nuclear paws.” The seminar was hosted by Washington-based thinktank Korea Economic Institute (KEI).

The former journalist, Moon Chang-geuk was tapped for prime minister by President Park Geun-hye.

The former journalist, Moon Chang-geuk was tapped for prime minister by President Park Geun-hye on June 10th, 2014. But the nominee was known to have said in a 2011 church lecture something to the effect that Japan’s colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula was the will of God–a comment that drew extensive public criticism and resulted in the withdrawal of his nomination 14 days after Park made the appointment.

North Korea will not be able to pose nuclear threats to us if we are capable of making nuclear arms in a matter of several months in the event of an emergency situation, as Japan now can,” He added, “South Korea should become a “technological nuclear power.”

“In pushing for reunification, the government needs to put it to a national vote. To capture an opportune moment for the reunification of two Korean, they should keep in mind the need to avoid any South-South discord in the nation,” Mr. Moon noted.

The divided Korean Peninsula is a destabilizing factor for South Korea, China and Japann, while a reunified Korea will make it possible for us to overcome limitations imposed by geopolitical economic dynamics in the region and establish peace among the three neighboring countries,” He added.

Comments from Daum:


Even though the man who lost public trust says something right, it sounds like bullshit after all.


Doesn’t his claim that the nation should become technically capable of developing nuclear arms sound right?


He goes before the god you like, and spits out your nuclear claim.


He should have said so before.


His remark is a rarity. He would have become prime minister without a hitch if he had made his remark before.


Pro-Japanese guy makes his comeback. He seems like he’s begging for a penny. [The commentator appears to see his remarks as a bid for renomination to the prime minister.]


I think Mr. Moon souds insensible. He claims South Korea needs to possess the technology to develop nuclear arms in several months time in the event of an emergency. His claim is only feasible in a fairytale. First, if there is ever a war on the Korean Peninsula, we will all be dead shortly, and it won’t take months for it to happen. And, how we could make nuclear weapons on this small territory?


This is the idea he has come up with after several months of racking his head? Hey, Octopus head, you first need to show whether this idea is from God or him.


Now this guy seems to crawl into the world again.
