An Insider’s Look at North Korea

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Of the literally hundreds of emails I receive every week, one grabbed my attention this week.  I do not know the author, nor his viewpoint, but in his lengthy post he had a number of valid points regarding North Korea.  He said:

“Either way, war is inevitable in the Korean peninsula and Kim Jong Il managed to get himself into a win-win situation. Even if North Korea is completely destroyed in a war with the USA, South Korea and Japan, it is still a win-win situation for the North Korean regime of that time.

And why is that? Because their definition of victory is different than ours. They wouldn’t mind losing their country if they could destroy the USA and the rest of the world.

North Korea is a war-minded nation, built and maintained for war and with a war economy. A boxer training for a fight won’t rest until he gets into the ring. He wants to make use of his training in real combat. He doesn’t believe he will lose the fight and he will put all his might, training and hard work of several months into that single fight.

The same happens with North Korea but the difference is that their preparations for war didn’t take months. It took decades!

The goal of North Korea is not economic prosperity or real social justice. The only single goal of that nation is to go to war against the USA, South Korea and Japan.

To those who don’t believe this I tell them that for someone to understand the enemy’s goals, one must think like the enemy and put himself in his position. People in North Korea, with absolutely no knowledge of what really happens in the rest of the world, are eager and desperate to go to war. The day North Korea goes to war is the happiest day in their lives: the day that their great leader will conquer his enemies.”

The author has struck on very important Eastern concepts which Western leaders tend to forget:

  • Planning is typically done over generations, not weeks or months ahead;
  • Since their value system is totally different to the West’s we will often not understand their motivation for doing things.

Naturally our Western leaders will not take any account of this when considering actions against North Korea.  Read more…

World War 3 Elements

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

I am often asked “How will we know World War 3 has begun?” or something along those lines. This is simply a brief refresher on what I believe to be the prerequisite elements for WW3 to officially be declared the next World War. (I notice incidentally that Bush has been using the term recently. Of course, he was spouting irresponsible garbage about 9/11, but interesting that he used the term World War 3.)

There are three important elements of WW3. Until all of them are in play, we cannot call the current disparate skirmishes a true World War, using my definition based on the coverage of WW1 and WW2:

A World War is a military conflict spanning more than 2 continents, in which at least 20 major countries participate in an attack against a common enemy.

The obvious missing ingredient in the current skirmishes underway is “a common enemy”. According to Pike’s apparent letter predicting three World Wars, WW1′s enemy was the Russian Czar’s; WW2′s enemy was Nazism; and WW3′s enemy will be both the Arabic World and political Zionism. Of course for any political leader to announce this now would be suicide, so a more nebulous term has been created: The War on Terrorism.

Of course for any political leader to announce this now would be suicide, so a more nebulous term has been created: The War on Terrorism.But back to WW3. Here are the elements required:

  • Act 1The Middle East. Widespread conflict to bring the entire region into the flames of war, possibly triggered by Iran or militants in Pakistan using North Korean supplied nuclear arms. The first Scene in this Act is the US Invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003.
  • Act 2Israel at War — Against her Arab neighbors, possibly Palestine. A Palestinian State will be established, so that all Israelis will be fully separated from Palestinians (listen out for mention of a 7-year treaty to be confirmed by a World Leader – probably Bush), only for Israel to viciously attack Palestine shortly thereafter.
  • Act 3Far East — “Hair-raising nuclear confrontation that threatens mankind’s existence” – Peter Lemesurier, author of The Armageddon Script, p. 223, written in 1981. Includes China invading Taiwan and a nuclear eruption on the Korean Peninsula.
  • Act 4Erosion of Confidence in ‘The System’ so severe citizens will be panicked into giving up liberties and Constitutional form of government. The plan calls for the dissolution of the US Constitution, triggered by a significant enough ‘terrorist’ attack. The ultimate intent is to introduce a global government and one-world religion.
  • Act 5The collapse of the US, and other Western economies and morals.
  • Act 6Significant population reduction using natural and man-made disasters.

In recent weeks there has been an escalation in activities in the Middle East and the Far East, indicating that, once again, elements for a planned WW3 are falling into place.

“The aircraft carrier Eisenhower, accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio, guided-missile destroyer USS Ramage, guided-missile destroyer USS Mason and the fast-attack submarine USS Newport News, is, as I write, making its way to the Straits of Hormuz off Iran. The ships will be in place to strike Iran by the end of the month. It may be a bluff. It may be a feint. It may be a simple show of American power. But I doubt it.” Read more…

This report and many others, seem to confirm that we will see a war with Iran within the next few weeks. Interestingly, many commentators seem to link an Iran war with the end of the Bush administration, meaning this will be Bush’s last invasion before being replaced. Rest assured that a Middle East invasion has zero to do with the incumbent President – they will be invaded irrespective of who occupies the White House. This must be accomplished to achieve the grander plan of a One World Government.

In a further development, A Korean-Japanese scholar who is considered North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s unofficial spokesman said:

“If the Bush administration makes more provocations, both New York City and Tokyo will be blazed.” Read more…

The same report concludes that “Kim is not trustworthy, and his claims should be ignored”, but more and more the feeling in North Korea is that any further pressure on them will simply result in a nuclear attack against their would-be oppressors. They have nothing to lose.

With these two developments on the Middle East and far East fronts, it is clear that the drum rolls for WW3 are becoming louder.
