It’s Time to Stop Pretending North Korea Is a Threat to the United States

China will not allow American forces on North Korean soil. I believe they will allow an attack on North Korea using missiles but not a ground invasion. This is part of China’s security policy. Any attempt to do so by America and its allies will bring in Chinese forces into the war to protect Chinese interests (ie. not North Korean interests).

  • The real war is between: US vs China. North Korea is really the hook to trigger it. Emphasis mine:
  • It’s Time to Stop Pretending North Korea Is a Threat to the United States
    by , http://theantimedia.org/
    (ANTIMEDIA Op-Ed) North Korea is a threat, goes the narrative. And we, as loyal Americans, should fear the potentiality of that fact. 

    That’s why U.S. aircraft carriers, accompanied by fighter jets and warships, are currently steaming toward the Korean Peninsula. That’s why the best soldiers the United States military has to offer are currently in South Korea, training — goes the narrative — to take out Kim Jong-un.

    That’s why Japan, staunch U.S. ally, is considering deploying troops to South Korea — in preparation for the time when that evil dictator from the north will try to harm Japanese nationals in the south. Conveniently, if Japan does deploy those troops — and, let’s be honest, they will — that will put the coalition of Japan, South Korea, and the United States together on the Korean peninsula.

    Consider that for a moment. They actually want us to believe that it would take the combined military might of the U.S., Japan, and South Korea to take out Kim Jong-un. There literally is no other way to look at it.

    As in all cases when it comes to geopolitical analysis, it helps to look at a map. North Korea is sandwiched between a U.S.-occupied territory to the south and a global superpower, China, to the north.

    In what universe does it make sense that Kim Jong-un would think attacking an “enemy” in the region would be beneficial? On Monday, Anti-Media reported on the fact that former Pentagon chief William Perry told CNN in November that North Korea would never strike first because, very simply, Kim doesn’t want to die.

    “I do not believe the North Korean regime is suicidal,”
    he said. “Therefore, I don’t believe they’re going to launch an unprovoked nuclear attack on anyone.”

    That’s because Kim has certainly applied to the situation what the mainstream narrative would like you to discard — common sense. With just a dash of it, any logical being can look at the events unfolding and see that North Korea poses no threat, to any surrounding nation, period.

    Which poses an immediate question: Why the military buildup in South Korea?

    China, incidentally, reportedly just deployed 150,000 troops to its border with North Korea. Much like Japan, the reason given was preparation. Preparation for war was the message between the words.

    But it wouldn’t be war with North Korea. That tiny strip of land is merely the buffer between two military juggernauts, the United States and China. That’s World War III, friends, and it has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un.

  1. The assessment is interesting, from a Real Politic analysis:
    North Korea is a desperate failed state. Since 1980 the majority of their population consumed between 440 calories and 750 calories per day.
    The DPRK has a Stalinistic Nomenklatura- an Communist Intellectual power elite which consumed 2300+ calories a day. The results have created a body politique which is socio-genetically brain damaged.
    The Power elite has decided on Nuclear blackmail or National suicide. The USA and the World conceded in 1976, 1993 and 2009. The 2017 POTUS and the NCA will not become a Neville Chamberland .
    Region Conventional war will be adverted only through Real Politque
    and a return to MAD Mutual Assured Destruction in CYBERWAR,
    Strategic Economic Warfare and Direct Action Special Operations Asymmetric Warfare. Nuclear War by the DPRK is committing strategic Suicide and a guaranteed place in a one sided tactical nuclear war in which CHINA (PRC) will just pick up the geo-economic pieces from
    4.7 million DPRK dead. The Trump Doctrine will work only with the direct intervention by the PRC the UN and others in the Diplomatic Community. With out the UN — Regional Conflict is a high probability.
