Tidslinje: Den nordkoreanska robotkrisen

Det här är en tidslinje för den nordkoreanska robotkrisen som började tidigt förra året. Datumet jag har valt som ”inledningen” till den här krisen är ett tweet som USA:s dåvarande president-elect Donald Trump skickade den tredje januari, alltså någon vecka innan han installerades i Vita Huset.

”North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won’t happen!”

Jag är öppen för att revidera den här tidslinjen. Det finns många andra rimliga startpunkter att utgå ifrån, men jag valde den tredje januari eftersom det var då den inkommande amerikanske presidenten deklarerade en s k ”röd linje” att USA inte skulle tolerera att Nordkorea har förmågan att slå mot USA:s territorium.

Eftersom den här tidslinjen skapas mer än ett år efter krisen började kommer det ta ett tag innan den är helt komplett.


3 jan 2017:

POTUS-elect Trump twittrar ”North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won’t happen!”

Kort därefter twittrar han också ”China has been taking out massive amounts of money & wealth from the U.S. in totally one-sided trade, but won’t help with North Korea. Nice!”
