The International Bolshevik Tendency condemns Washington's outrageous threats to use its massive nuclear arsenal against North Korea. We demand an end to the UN sanctions and the removal of all U.S. forces from South Korea. The United States, the only country ever to drop an atomic bomb on people, has staged provocation after provocation against North Korea and China. As Marxists, we recognize the right of North Korea and China to defend themselves against imperialist aggression, including through the possession of nuclear weapons. At the same time, we have no confidence in the bureaucratic dictatorships that govern these deformed workers' states – our perspective is one of proletarian political revolution to sweep away the Kim regime and its patron in Beijing and open the road to socialist transformation in East Asia. Only workers' revolution on a global scale can bury the threat of nuclear annihilation at the hands of imperialist predators.
