Hello NK. Just follow the blueprint of East-West Germany unification. We are talking about the same country and people. 1. Army gets sick and tired of supporting a family’s luxurious lifestyle while people are starving to death and gives them the door. 2. Border guards get tired of keeping their own people apart and throw away their guns and walk south. 3. People from both sides of the wall break it down. 4. NK politicians could even join a United Korea as one of the political parties anyone can vote for and keep their wealth if that’s what is hindering a peaceful unification. 5. Create a new economic miracle in Asia.

Sounds a lot better than starting a war or toying around with nuclear bombs with the wind blowing into China doesn’t it.

The moron really doesn’t understand what he is doing. He grew up listening to his dad spewing out all kinds of B.S. Un may actually believe he can win or have “limited action” like the Japanese believed about Pearl Harbor. Things can get out of hand very quickly. The US has formally asked China to rein-in their petulant child. If China does not do something to reduce tensions the SK and US may get (secret) permission from China to take limited action of their own.

That delusional megalomaniac fatboy obviously needs psychiatric help.

Alternatively, China could step in, and induce a peaceful regime change in their small, tormented neighboring country, and by doing so get rid of a constant crisis.
That would also contribute something to improve China’s image as confused and clueless power.

“U.S. policy for dealing with the North Korean situation is inadequate because it focuses on North Korea in isolation as a rogue state, and naively seeks help from the Russians and Chinese to solve the problem. The North Korea situation and any future nuclear incident, wherever it occurs, must be seen against the background of Sino-Soviet ‘convergence’ strategy: the interaction of Russian and Chinese policy and the moves they make to derive strategic gains from critical situations should be closely studied.” – KGB Defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn, “The Perestroika Deception”, March 1989, p. 46.

Not a year goes by that another prediction by Golitsyn doesn’t come true!

Now you know why Russian military aircraft still have the hated Communist Red Star on their wings/tail fin, and why NEW Russian naval vessels have the hated Communist Red Star placed on their bows. That hated Communist symbol represented the 74 years that the minority Communist Party of the Soviet Union (representing no more than 10% of the adult population) persecuted majority population, and would have been immediately removed from all such military hardware if the collapse of the USSR were legitimate.

For those not clued-in, the collapse of the USSR was a disinformation operation under the “Long-Range Policy” (LRP), the “new” and more suble strategy all Communist nations signed onto in 1960 to defeat the West with. The next major disinformation operation under the LRP will be the upcoming fraudulent collapse of the Chinese Communist government, subsequent to which Taiwan will be politically stymied from not joining the mainland.

For more on the LRP, read KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn’s 1984 book, “New Lies for Old”, available at Internet Archive or your public library.

On the 2nd March 1969, a combined arms Red Army battle group, consisting of a squadron of T62 MBT’s, at least one company of infantry and supported by perhaps two batteries of medium artillery, engaged PLA border troops at Zhenbao Island (Damansky Island as it is known in Russian) on the Ussuri River in a prolonged fire-fight. The news flashed around the world: The Soviets and Chinese were at war! There were even rumours of nuclear exchanges. And when Kosygin, the Soviet prime minister attempted to telephone Mao at the height of this crisis, the Chinese switchboard operator told him in no uncertain terms: ‘You are a revisionist, and therefore I will not connect you’. From here on, things went down-hill to the point that Brezhnev polled Kissinger in May 1973 on the possibility of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on China’s nuclear facilities. Rumours of a looming pre-emptive strike on China were so rife that during a meeting between Kosygin and Zhou Enlai in an airport in 1969 (no more state banquets here) Zhou started the talks by asking Kosygin about the rumour.

So tell me… do you not also think that Golitsyn should lay off the vodka before 10:00 in the morning. Try this: a Red Star on a tail fin does not a conspiratory communist dictatorship make.

Get a history lesson. Reagan didn’t say those famous words until after the wall started being demolished. Second, Reagan had nothing to do with the unification of Germany, despite what the worshipers might say.

What if we are all wrong? That this third generation mutant actually is a true believer. North Korea has always placed a great emphasis on the divine status of their leader and the third generation also has special significance (political prisoners children cannot re-enter North Korean society until the third generation). What if this crazy country believes it can win a nuclear war because of some divine intervention. They may not have a nuclear capable missle, but they surely can load one of their crude nukes on a passenger jet and be over Seoul in less than 5 minutes after leaving North Korean airspace. What if one of their only allies, Iran, is telling them Allah wishes it? When you are on the outside looking in, it is crazy. But history is replete with examples of where entire countries go crazy. Hitler, Pol Pot, Idi Amin are recent examples. What if the country blindly follows the only fat guy in the country? What if he believes all the hype? If he asks a General what would happen in the event of a war, does the general lie and say they would win easily, thus keeping his head? If he said they would kick our arses, would he and his family be shot for failing the great leader? I am reminded of David Koresh and the Branch Davidiots. We all thought that seige was stupid, that the crazy guy would eventually give up, but you know what, they torched themselves because they believed he was God. What if this is a God syndrome on a apopolyptic scale?

Do not need a history lesson, I was there. Were you? Or the ones that gave your history lesson? Yeah, thought so. Germany would not have had a unification at that time without Reagan’s work along with Thatcher and Kissinger. It would have been much latter if at all. It was not about the wall, or a divided nation, it was about the fall of totalitarian communist rule. Without Ronald Reagan it would not have happened…and the democrats in power now are letting it return-if not helping. FACT!. I LIVED IT!

The DPRK has not mobilized its army because it is waiting for a US and/or Israeli attack on Iran. Bush’s 2002 Axis of Evil policy threatened regime change for Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. The illegal US attack on Iraq started 14 months later, and the Bush regime began lies about Iran to prepare for the 2nd US war crime. The DPRK knows that it is next, so Kim Jong-il made nukes in 2006 and 2009. The Obama regime continued to prepare aggression against Iran, so a new missile and a 3rd nuke came in 2012 and 2013. The US should sign a peace treaty to end its 63 year war. The Cold War ended in 1990, so the US has had 23 years to solve the problem. Instead, the US wastes fuels, man hours, and other resources when it has a continuing economic crisis that it made for itself.

Binary,

how is it you’re not aware that the “Sino/Soviet Split” was a disinformation operation under the “Long-Range Policy”? KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn relayed this information soon after his defection in late 1961. In fact, Golitsyn’s predictions concerning Communist strategy are 94% on-target. In other words, the USSR/East Bloc nations were doing exactly what Golitsyn was predicting they would do, meaning the Communists are still in power in the not-so-former USSR/East Bloc!

We now know that (1) approximately 270,000 PLA troops assisted Moscow’s ally North Vietnam during the American phase of the war, AND (2) that most of the NVA regiments Americans were fighting in South Vietnam were PLA regiments, where the PLA were attired in NVA uniforms. So much for the “Sino/Soviet Split”, as Golitsyn predicted.

You really should keep up with recent history!
