Shades of 1950-1953 on the 38th parallel

Let’s establish a few things right off the bat, as they say: First, the Korean War, that began in June, 1950, never actually ended.  There is no formal treaty, no truce, simply an armistice, the same kind that ended World War One.  The Korean War never ended, but actual hostilities were curtailed under a cease-fire on July 27th, 1953 at 10:00 AM local time. Second, North Korea, which calls itself the “Democratic Republic of Korea,” is obviously neither democratic, nor a republic.  It is, in fact, a monarchy.  The “founder” of North Korea, Kim Il-sung, was a Soviet puppet and delusional Stalinist who actually believed his own prevarications and propaganda, as he believed that of his mentors, Stalin and Mao.  He passed power, without input from “the people,” directly to his son, Kim Jong-il, who, in turn, passed it to his son, Kim Jong-un, who is the sabre-rattling ruler in Pyongyang today, the problem child of the current situation.  Called a “leader” by Western media, he’s actually a “ruler” since nobody has the option to question his fiats. Next, since communism cannot feed itself, North Korea is starving…literally.  Any north Korean who complains is sent to a “political re-education” prison, and many are never heard from again.  Widespread famine and food shortages have claimed the lives of several million of the Kim family’s subjects since the 1990s. Which is probably why Kim Jong-un is threatening war against South Korea, the U.S. and anybody else who isn’t starving.  Some points to consider include the fact that no large-scale troop movements have been observed in North Korea, which would be a necessary precursor to any actual invasion of the south. China, however, is reported to be massing troops on its border with Kim’s workers’ paradise.  Maybe Peking is getting tired of them too.  Moreover, Kim has moved some of his missiles to their east coast, obviously positioning them to more readily strike Japan, Guam and, presumably, North American targets. What has the Obama/Hegel/Kerry cabal done about this?  Actually, they’ve done a few things that should, ostensibly, meet with the approval of most Americans.  A few things, but not as many as they should do. With not a peep from the liberal media, the U.S. has moved additional SDI assets to protect this continent, Guam, Hawaii and the Aleutians from a NorKor missile attack.  These are the same anti-missile defense systems that the American left declared “physically impossible” and “destabilizing” in the 1980s and was determined to stop.  Clearly, the more vulnerable to attack America is, the better the domestic and international left likes it. Kim has warned foreign embassies to leave South Korea and drills his troops with paper photo targets of South Korean and American soldiers.  Lovely. What would be a totally appropriate and reasonable response if he “tests” another missile?  Shoot it down before it leaves North Korean airspace, of course.  Blow it up at an altitude of less than 10,000 feet so those poor, starving, brain-washed and imprisoned wretches can see it.  Next, publicly declare an end to any and all forms of aid or donations to those communist tyrants…and make sure the North Korean peasants know it by (literally) floating balloons with leaflets over the north. Of course, Obama and his leftist fellow-travelers will not do any of these things because they’re too busy reading Mao’s Little Red Book, wetting their beds and planning a strongly-worded letter to the UN Security Council in case Kim is able to take out Anchorage or Walla-Walla. Kim is the worst kind of bully: He thinks he’s tougher than he really is and picks on the schoolyard’s weaker kids while threatening all the other ones.  And as everyone instinctively knows, the only thing a bully understands is a broken nose, a couple of knocked-out teeth and some broken ribs.  The best thing we can do is to make sure his own people understand the utter impotence of their dictator while forcing his hand…one way or the other. One will note the recent spate of footage of various military parades in Pyongyang with Kim standing as overlord.  But note that virtually none of the spit-and-polish, goose-stepping “people’s army” are actually carrying rifles in those Stalinist reviews.  This means that either they don’t have enough rifles for everybody, or they don’t trust their own troops to be armed when the ruling fascists are within range, up close and personal.  Either way, North Korea needs to be put out of its own misery, and the sooner, the better.

    Yes, it is. Iraq was actively working on building nuclear weapons, and the Left still won’t admit it. The Prime Minister of Niger told the US State Department in official documents that an Iraqi delegation was in Niger trying to buy uranium under the table, outside of UN inspections.

    As for North Korea, the question is whether we have any human assets inside North Korea. We don’t.

    The level of prosperity of a country does not determine whether we have spies inside their society. North Korea is a giant cult. So who are you going to know what went on inside North Korea?

    Consider this: I started to write a sequel to my spy novel Cold Peace, actually conceived as a 3rd book. This is loosely related to several long chapters I wrote for the 3rd planned book, I was thinking of calling “THE FOOLS.”

    Let’s say Falcor is made Secretary of the Interior in the Hillary Clinton Administration. Falcor is driving along I-95 near Newark, listening to Al Mascitti on WDEL read from the Communist Manifesto and call for the workers of the world to unite.

    Suddenly Al Mascitti’s radio broadcast is interrupted by an ear-piercing screech. (I resist the temptation for a cheap joke at this point.)

    You see in the direction of Philadelphia a brilliant flash on the horizon, too far away to be blinding, but still causing a noticeable brightness on the horizon. Shortly a very small but distinct mushroom cloud — very far away — just pokes up slightly on the horizon, dimming from white-hot, to red with time.

    There is no announcement. No claim of responsibility. No statements. Just totally out of the blue.

    The President, VP, and her entire Cabinet were attending a gay wedding at Catholic Church in Philadelphia, forcing the ceremony on an unwilling diocese.

    So you are now the President.

    What do you do?

    Remember: There is absolutely no clue who is responsible. One day Philadelphia is there. The next day Philadelphia is erased from the face of the Earth. You have no other information. So whom do you bomb?

  2. And obviously there was no missile. These days, only a foolish enemy would fire a missile, which can be traced back to its point of origin. Why use a missile when you can just sail a stolen power boat (recreational fishing boat) up the river from the ocean?

  3. Jon what in the hell are you even talking about 2 posts up? You’re just lost at this point… Just lost.

  4. Falcor, you are used to thinking about these things (as most people do) from the standpoint of watching a movie, when they tell you in the movie who did it.

    In real life, if tomorrow at 2:00 PM Washington DC just ceased to exist — no claim of responsibility, no comment, no statement, nothing.

    You would just start firing nuclear missiles randomly at various countries indiscriminately?

    The name of the game in modern nuclear warfare is to leave no fingerprints.

    WORSE still is attacking the USA while making the USA believe it was someone else who did it.

    Why is North Korea going bonkers?

    What if China or Russia is feeding North Korea (false) “intelligence” showing that the USA is about to attack North Korea?

    Adolf Hitler feed Josef Stalin false intelligence suggesting that various Soviet Generals were conspiring against Stalin. Stalin reacted by shooting most of the leadership of the Soviet military and instilling fear and chaos in the rest.

    That contributed to Hitler’s ability to roll across the Soviet frontier with only token resistance from the almost leaderless Soviet army.

  5. “The name of the game in modern nuclear warfare is to leave no fingerprints.”

    The most modern nuclear warfare ended in 1945.

    “You would just start firing nuclear missiles randomly at various countries indiscriminately?”

    That sounds an awful lot like something up your alley Strangelove.

    “Falcor, you are used to thinking about these things (as most people do) from the standpoint of watching a movie, when they tell you in the movie who did it.”

    It’s pretty amusing to be told by somebody who has never served that I get my information on the military from movies.

    “Why is North Korea going bonkers?”

    They aren’t, they are acting the way you do any time you can try to spin some silly ass political point… by acting like children who want attention.

    “What if China or Russia is feeding North Korea (false) “intelligence” showing that the USA is about to attack North Korea?”

    This would destroy their economies so….

  6. The Prime Minister of Niger told the US State Department in official documents that an Iraqi delegation was in Niger trying to buy uranium under the table, outside of UN inspections.

    WH concedes Iraq nuke threat was bogus

    Side note, one way to get the main stream media to do their jobs to some extent despite the fact that they may as well be controlled opposition*… vote Republican.

    *I.e. they’ll only operate as opposition to Red Team within certain parameters**. And that’s probably why you don’t hear about the fusion of religion and militarism or the “crusades” in Israel like you would if there were tanks with crosses or Muslim symbolism on them driving around in the Mid East, etc. Who says that the modern West is against “religious” crusades?

  7. Falcor, you are used to thinking about these things (as most people do) from the standpoint of watching a movie, when they tell you in the movie who did it.

    With respect to the main stream media and moovies… the terrists would be suggested or presented to people and a list of countries to attack as a result might be presented in main streams of media on very the day of the attack… if 911 is any measure.

  8. In other news:

    The Australian dollar is set to become only the third currency to trade directly with the Chinese yuan — a move that will help internationalize China’s currency and smooth transactions between the major trading partners.
    Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the deal Monday during a trip to Shanghai.
    “Australia’s banks, superannuation funds and financial houses will be even better placed to help in the growth of China’s service economy,” Gillard said. “This is good news for the Chinese economy and good news for the Australian economy.” CNN

    You have to love the way that CNN reports that. Still waiting on seeing how they may report on more and more nations dropping the dollar as the entertainer in chief keeps Honey Boo Boo America entertained for now.

    Was that an Asian pivot… from the Mid East and Africom or whatever? Uh oh. Is it time for some more hopium and change or more entertaining ideas about “gay rights” yet? (After all, it’s not as if we should be building a natural gas infrastructure based on “shovel ready” jobs IN REALITY, etc.)

  9. Contrast “main stream” CNN/CIA reports with this:

    Why is this so very critical? For the simple reason that the free lunch the US has enjoyed ever since the advent of the US dollar as world reserve currency, may be coming to an end as other, more aggressive alternatives – both fiat, and hard-asset based – to the USD appear. And since there is no such thing as a free lunch, all the deferred pain the US Treasury Department has been able to offset thanks to its global currency monopoly status will come crashing down the second the world starts getting doubts about the true nature of just who the real reserve currency will be in the future. Thanks, World Reserve Currency, But No Thanks: Australia And China To Enable Direct Currency Convertibility

    In any case, at least the DHS has a lot of ammo, a lot of AR-15s and 2700 tanks if the dollar does need to be done away with by the banksters. I.e. DHS seems to be “prepping”* to keep everyone safe after the banksters are through with THEIR/OUR “federal reserve notes.”

    *(By happenstance, because the idea that banksters and their corrupt politicians don’t care about us and our health and wealth at a local level is just one big “conspiracy theory”… etc.)

    Meanwhile:

    On Meet the Press this morning, California Senator Dianne Feinstein said she was planning to introduce a bill that would ban “weapons of war” on American streets.

    Hey, wait a second…. apparently that doesn’t apply to the DHS?
