SHOCK: Obama’s former spy chief said the denuclearisation option will not be viable

Former Director of US Intelligence James Clapper said he doesn’t foresee a situation where Kim would be willing to give up his missiles.

“I’d love to see it, but I don’t think that’s in the cards,” Clapper said on Sunday.

Clapper, who served as US spying top dog while Barack Obama was President, said the denuclearisation option was a “non-starter”.

He said the North Korean government views its nuclear weapons program as its “ticket to survival” and will not give it up under any circumstances.

“Ideally I would love a denuclearised North Korea,” Clapper told CNN.

“But as I learned when I went there an had some pretty intense dialogue with them, that is a non-starter for them.

“I don’t see any way they are going to give it up.”

The former top spy also blasted Donald Trump’s bombastic rhetoric, arguing his response to the crisis needed to be more measured.

“Many people, myself included, would argue for more temperate language than the ‘fire and fury’ kind of thing,” Clapper said.

Last week the President said North Korea would experience “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it were to attack US territory.

Trump has warned North Korea that the US military was “locked and loaded” for war.

While Pyongyang has angrily accused Trump of warmongering and pushing them to nuclear war.
