" the Korean Central News Agency said paraphrasing Kim during his visit with North Korean engineers working on the project "If the US imperialists infringe upon the Democratic Peoples Republic of Koreas sovereignty and right to existence with nuclear weapons it will never hesitate to make a preemptive nuclear strike at them" Given North Korean secrecy the claim is impossible to verify But in light of North Koreas inexorable push to develop a nuclear-carrying intercontinental ballistic missileand the bizarre cult-of-personality dynasty that runs the Hermit Kingdom starving millions and jailing thousands of political prisonersthe obvious question is simple: should the US take the lead in taking down Pyongyangs nuclear menace by force Nuclear experts have been saying for years that North Korea might be able to shrink a nuclear warhead Thats critical because a smaller warhead translates into longer range The non-profit Institute for Science and International Security said in 2013 that North Korea still would need "to conduct missile flight tests with a re-entry vehicle and mock warhead increase the explosive yield of the warhead possibly requiring its further miniaturization and improve the operational reliability of the warhead and missile" to be sure its missile would work While that may be the path followed by most nations North Korea is hardly a normal country Corner-cutting especially if the nation perceives itself as threatened could accelerate that process With the US and South Korea now conducting a huge military exercise and new sanctions recently imposed on North Korea its no wonder that Pyongyang is feeling beleaguered Only hours after North Korea announced its alleged miniaturization breakthrough a US artillery brigade launched a barrage of rockets close to the border town of Cheorwon something bound to jangle North Korean nerves even more The US has built a missile shield in Alaska and California dedicated to the threat posed by North Korean rockets The Pentagon voiced confidence Tuesday in its ability to down any incoming North Korean warheads "The United States has not seen North Korea demonstrate a capability to miniaturize a warhead" Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said shortly before the North Korean claim that it had done so "We still feel confident that we can deter and respond to a missile threat from North Korea" Taking out North Koreas two major nuclear sites with air strikes would be dangerous but probably not too difficult US officials say The possibility of North Korean retaliation against Seoul South Koreas capital of 10 million and only 35 miles from North Korea would be a complicating factor they concede Yet the more advanced North Koreas nuclear arsenal becomes the tougher it will be to dismantle peacefully Its slow but steady progress on the nuclear front is something that the US and the rest of the world has been unable to stop "Our policy right along" Defense Secretary William Perry told TIME in his flying stateroom over the Atlantic 22 years ago "has been oriented to try to keep North Korea from getting a significant nuclear-weapon capability" That effort has failed In fact in 2006 Perry and Ashton Carterthe current defense secretaryargued that the US should attack a North Korean missile before it could be launched The US didnt attack and the missile test failed Somewhere down the road Americans might not be so lucky Write to Mark Thompson at [email protected] must be election season because the chimera of ‘EVM tampering’ has surfaced again This fake narrative based on wild allegations has grown to become an indispensable feature of elections since the Narendra Modi government came to power It duly emerges during election time and depending on whether BJP wins or loses either escalates or vaporises into thin air For instance EVMs were alright when Arvind Kejriwal’s party swept Delhi in 2015 EVMs became "tampered" when AAP lost MCD polls two years later The peddlers — a motley crew of Opposition parties and a section of the media — either have no memory of elections in pre-EVM days or worse still they do and that’s exactly why they want to turn back the clock They have not even an iota of evidence to back their charge but who needs proofs when accusations are a self-serving mechanism If even a fraction of the young and first-time voters who weren’t born during those paper ballot days of large-scale rigging and booth-capturing are taken in by the nonsense their objective will be met Representational Image: PTI At the heart of this fake narrative is a clever conflation between machine malfunction and manipulation This conflation seeks to tap into our unawareness and insecurities over technology and trigger doubts about the fairness of an election process conducted by the Election Commission of India — an independent and autonomous constitutional body The frolic of fakery isn’t just mudslinging It is a calculated and cynical attempt to undermine a robust public institution by lowering people’s trust in it Be it the judiciary ECI and/or other autonomous bodies it has been the Opposition’s standard operating procedure to weaken institutions through machinations and illogic to feed their narrative that Modi government is "destabilising institutions" It is a classic syllogistic fallacy where deductive reasoning is inverted to suit the cause BJP’s dominance may have led the frustrated Opposition to explore these deranged options but they have been aided in their mission by a section of the media who shares their visceral hatred of Modi This cabal’s hatred for Modi’s political dominance has reached such obsessive proportions that it would rather spin fantastic conspiracy theories and level outlandish allegations against public institutions than see the absurdity of it all These fake outrages could be temporal but little by little they serve to harm institutional credibility in a democracy which already suffers due to theweakness of its institutions Did machine malfunction take place during the byelections on Monday Yes it did In some Lok Sabha and Assembly seats such as Kairana in Uttar Pradesh and Bhandara Gondiya in Maharashtra the ECI had to replace 208 percent and 1922 percent of all VVPAT machines respectively That is an unusually high number Does that mean there was manipulation No Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat pointed out that last instance of "a large-scale VVPAT malfunction" was witnessed during Punjab Assembly polls "In one constituency it was as high as 35 percent In most constituencies that went to bypolls today VVPATs were used for the first time" he was quoted as saying by The Times of India Incidentally Congress formed a government in Punjab after beating BJP and its ally “Many VVPATs malfunctioned due to failure of polling staff to take training seriously which led them to place machines under direct source of light causing malfunction Faulty VVPATs were checked by engineers who set them right or had them replaced with reserve VVPATs”. with 2, blend in with the students as they escape and walk free for an hour before
