What If North and South Korea Went to War? The Query Has No Answer, Because the Answer is Too Terrible to Consider.

The query presented in the first video below is rolled about, and facts are stated by the narrator for the record, but the query is never actually answered in the video clip. It cannot be answered. There are too many unthinkable, yet entirely plausible possible scenarios which could rapidly unfold in response to even the first two or three days of a war between North and South Korea. Millions upon millions of precious innocent souls could die during the first 24 hours of a war between North and South Korea.

The list of possible ‘unthinkables’ regarding North Korea are almost too numerous to even attempt to consider. The recent Clinton / Obama era foreign policy response tactic of “ignoring” North Korea has proven to be a complete failure, resulting in the morbidly obese growth of Kim Jong Un’s nearly psychotic hubris, until we have now come to the next unthinkable moment – the possibility that North Korea may have detonated a small hydrogen bomb underground on January 6th 2016. Ignoring the crazy little fat man is no longer working, and it was never the right way to handle the threat.

There are also too many other potential dire unintended exploding political chain reactions from hell which could also begin to cascade rapidly into the picture, once war broke out, which really cannot be answered adequately, as only God knows how those options might play out. Any war between North and South Korea would very quickly escalate into a most terrible yet proxy confrontation between China and the USA, an utterly awful and soul debilitating scenario, which has already played out once before in lesser form, during the Vietnam War era from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. We all know how that ended. It was an absolute fiasco for our country. 58,000 American men and women died for nothing, absolutely nothing, other than the foolish hubris of 3 consecutive American presidents who did not know how to finish what had been started, and feared losing face on the world stage more than they cared about those precious American lives. Not to mention the tens of thousands of innocent South Vietnamese who died in vain.

I see NO SCENARIO where North and South Korea go to war which would NOT escalate into US involvement on the South Korean side, since we are their committed allies. North Korean backer and prime ally China would be pulled into the conflict almost inevitably. With four nations now involved, possible escalations could array themselves in any number of scenarios. Iran is an ally of North Korea. So is Syria. Saudi Arabia is a sworn foe of Iran and Syria, but a close friend of Turkey. India hates Pakistan and Pakistan hates her back. Both are nuclear armed nations. ISIS psychosis sits squarely in the dark hole center of the Mideast, ready to be armed by black market nukes smuggled in from North Korea. Turkey secretly arms Syrian rebels and hates Russia. Russia is furious with Turkey and supports Assad and wants to rule the Mideast and own her oil. Turkey is in the way. EVERYONE wants the Mideast oil. China needs it badly. ISIS wants to invade Great Britain. They have already terrorized France. Mighty little David vs. Goliath Israel sits squarely in the middle of all this mess which is ready to ignite at any moment. We live in a hair-trigger world, often nearly deranged by the ongoing stress of it all.

And so it goes and so it goes. Funny. The video clip didn’t mention any of that. That’s because it’s a question that cannot be answered, and no amount of studying the pieces on the chessboard can solve the riddle. It’s a prepper’s nightmare for all of us, all over the world. Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly.

#BREAKING: North Korea Claims to Have Detonated a Hydrogen Bomb: 5.2 Artificial Earthquake Recorded

hbomb-nk

1.6.2016

A hideous ‘Happy New Year’ from the lunatic regime in North Korea came late on the evening of 1.5.2016, as the fascist hermit kingdom made claims aired on state television of having detonated their first hydrogen bomb underground, causing serious alarm around the world. US officials were quick to cast dispersion upon the announcement, stating it was doubtful the detonation had actually taken place. Such comments make many US citizens wonder whether their own government now have their collective  heads placed so deep in the sand that they may as well be dead, since they behave as if the event did not happen.

Meanwhile, back in actuality, a 5.2 Richter Scale “artificial earthquake” has been detected in North Korea, as discussed by citizen journalist and high tech patriot weatherman DutchSinse in the first video below. Notwithstanding the far-reaching political and destabilizing implications of such a reckless act, the sheer worldwide environmental and health ramifications resulting from detonating such an enormous device might take years to fully understand.

It is my urgent hope that world leaders will cease their ineffective but typical tactic of “ignoring North Korea” as a containment policy and begin fully embracing the fact that the regime of Kim Jong Un represents a dire threat to world peace, much more so than ISIS ever will.

The list of possible ‘unthinkables’ regarding North Korea are almost too numerous to even attempt to consider. The recent Clinton / Obama era foreign policy response tactic of “ignoring” North Korea has proven to be a complete failure, resulting in the morbidly obese growth of Kim Jong Un’s nearly psychotic hubris, until we have now come to the next unthinkable moment – the possibility that North Korea may have detonated a small hydrogen bomb underground on January 6th 2016. Ignoring the crazy little fat man is no longer working, and it was never the right way to handle the threat.

In the world of “most heinous” possible scenarios, should North Korea decide to sell such arms to Iran or ISIS, the probability that WW3 will become a reality may coalesce a little bit more. Now is NOT the time to continue to “ignore North Korea.” I can only pray our world leaders fully grasp that fact.

The UN Security Council quickly condemned North Korea’s actions and called an emergency session to discuss the development, if the event did actually occur. People on the street in South Korea who were interviewed expressed grave concerns, understandably. A hydrogen bomb detonated in South Korea could potentially kill or maim millions. The US military also keeps a permanent security force of about 20 to 30,000 forces stationed in the region. I’ve been scrambling to aggregate reports on this event all morning. Here’s what I have thus far:

North Korea Prison Gulags: “They Beat You All Night Long”

I’m sick of having to post videos like this. But it’s all I know to do in response to what little the world knows about the miserable torture and abuse of North Korea’s people by their own government. These outrages call out for a solution, for justice, and for these people to be liberated from the living hell they are experiencing. How bad will it have to get before the world forms a coalition and does something to end the suffering of the North Korean people? We risk losing our own humanity by not taking action to put an end to the wickedness and sadism of the regime of the Kim family, the latest preposterous installment being that of Kim Jong Un. Please: for God’s sake – do something to end this hideous cruelty. Let’s find a way to bring this monstrous evil to an end.

Kim Jong Un Executes His Uncle and Former Mentor, Jang Song Thaek

In a sudden development that is one of the most public “purges” in North Korea since the 1950s, chilling international ‘North Korea watchers’, Kim Jong had his own uncle and former political tutor / mentor, Jang Song Thaek, arrested during a general meeting of North Korean leaders, taken away and executed by firing squad on December 12th 2013.

“Although high-ranking leaders, including members of the Kim family, have been deposed before, we haven’t seen anything this public or dramatic since Kim Jong-un’s grandfather Kim Il-sung purged his last major rivals in the late 1950s,” said Prof. Charles K. Armstrong, a North Korea expert at Columbia University and the author of “Tyranny of the Weak: North Korea and the World, 1950-1992.”

Charges were announced by top North Korean officials in the DRNK that Thaek had been planning a military coup against the Un regime, which is doubtful at best. A long laundry list of allegations were made by the DRNK against Thaek to justify his execution to the general populace, including the bizarre allegation that Thaek often “failed to applaud with enough enthusiasm” when in the presence of North Korean leadership.

The indications from this action are that Kim Jong Un intends to assume sole dictatorial and executive authority in North Korea with an absolute iron fist.  Instilling fear and terror into his remaining advisors and military leaders, some of which are blood relatives, had to also have been a motive in the sudden and especially cruel action by Un.

Thaek had been the second most powerful man in North Korea and mentored the youthful Un in his new role as dynastic heir and leader of the North Korean nation. The White House has condemned the brutal execution.

Cited: “The trial took place yesterday and the death sentence was carried out immediately, the official Korean Central News Agency reported today. Jang was arrested at a ruling party meeting last week on charges of factionalism and graft.

The blitzkrieg-style execution shows the North is determined to wipe out any potential source of dissidence,” Koh Yu Hwan, a professor of North Korean Studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, said by phone. “More purges are expected.”

Jang has now been airbrushed out of all existing photos and videos, another sign of old school “Josef Stalin style” hardline purges, indicating renewed brutality and the strict over-control of all historical record keeping and official documentation of the new regime of Un.

Cited from the NYT news website: “If Kim Jong-un was sure of his control of power, he would not have needed to execute his uncle,” said Lee Byong-chul, a senior fellow at the Institute for Peace and Cooperation in Seoul. “There will be big and small bloody purges, and at a time like this, desperate extremists may lash out. Pyongyang is no longer safe.”
