If the author
is in any way correct North Korea already has intercontinental
ballistic missiles carrying multiple nuclear weapons.
The leadership of North Korea would be more than happy to absorb a
nuclear counterstrike that would kill off the millions of starving
civilians as the price to pay for a victory against South Korea, Japan,
and the USA-three nations that psychotic regime hates.
Even if North Korea only has a "few" ICBMs they have the world's
largest special forces capability and they are quite competent. They
could-have-infiltrate the US and S. Korea as there are a large number
of Korean-Americans and sabotage our nuclear plants.
"Al Qaeda"? I'd find a way to defuse the situation now.
The North Korean regime is deeply entrenched, the people totally
brainwashed and submitted; any peacable revolution is impossible. Worse
they are committed to unifying Korea under their government and will
NOT accept terms.
A decapitation strike? Enough of the leadership would survive to
order the start of World War Three. Their army will stream south and
even without nuclear weapons would level Seoul in a matter of hours
with the largest artillery barrage in history, and use the shock and
awe to push further south.
Sanctions have only starved the North Korean people, the
leadership and the army always have enough and to the regime that's all
Appeasement? The North Koreans are masters of brinksmanship and
any concessions given are used as a platform to build more demands.
When sanctions and threats are made the North Korean regime has shown a
willingness to take things to the next level and as stated before
couldn't care less about consequences.
So, the only path to resolution to the Korean War is the one the
North wants. Get your bomb shelter ready, shield your computer, car and
files in faraday cages, download all the survival how to information
you can, get all the 19th and 20th century how to information you can,
you will be responsible for helping rebuild after the war. God help us!
Nuclear war is
Kim Jong-il's game plan
By Kim Myong Chol
"Our military first policy calls for an eye for an eye, a tooth
for a tooth, retaliation for retaliation, ultra-hardline for hardline,
war for war, total war for total war, nuclear war for nuclear war." -
TOKYO - A little-noted fact about the second nuclear test
conducted on May 25 by the Kim Jong-il administration of the Democratic
People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is that it was a highly successful
fission trigger test for multi-megaton warheads.
These types of warheads can be detonated in outer space, far above
the United States, evaporating its key targets. This is a significant
indication of the supreme leader's game plan for
nuclear war with the crippled superpower and its allies, Japan and
The North Korean Foreign Ministry on April 29 announced its plan
to test-fire what it termed a long-awaited "intercontinental ballistic
missile" (ICBM), the first public ICBM test after numerous missile
tests, short-range, medium-range, and long-range, were conducted
On March 9, the General Staff of the nuclear-armed Korean People's
Army had begun preparing to launch simultaneous retaliatory strikes on
the US, Japan and South Korea in response to their act of war.
Although no appropriate test site for a thermonuclear bomb is
available on the Korean Peninsula, North Korean scientists and
engineers are confident, as a series of computer simulations have
proved that their hydrogen bombs will be operational. The North Korean
message is that any soft spots of the US, Japan and South Korea's
defense lines will be used as the testing grounds for their
The Korean Central News Agency said on May 25 that the underground
nuclear test was carried out at the request of nuclear scientists and
engineers and reported:
The current nuclear test was safely conducted on a new higher
level in terms of its explosive power and technology of its control and
the results of the test helped satisfactorily settle the scientific and
technological problems arising in further increasing the power of
nuclear weapons and steadily developing nuclear technology.
John Pike, the founder and director of globalsecurity.org, told
the Weekly Standard on October 19, 2006, that the North Korean nuclear
test that year may have been a test of a "trigger device" for a much
larger hydrogen bomb. Writing in the New York Times on April 7, 2009,
he revealed that "North Korea's low-yield nuclear test in October 2006
did "coincide with the sub-kiloton tests of the fission trigger for a
hydrogen bomb". He added, "possibly North Korea's hydrogen bombs can be
easily fitted on missiles".
The Kim Jong-il administration has developed its global nuclear
strike capability primarily as a deterrent to US invasion to keep the
Korean Peninsula out of war. Secondly, it needs operational nuclear
missiles targeted at US and Japanese targets in the event of a DPRK-US
The North Korean state-run newspaper, Minjo Joson, vowed on June 9
to use nuclear weapons in war as "merciless means of offense to deal
retaliatory strikes" against anyone who "dares infringe upon the
dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK even a bit".
Scenario for nuclear war
After shifting to a plan B, Supreme
Leader Kim Jong-il has put in place a nuclear game plan as a part of
the plan's military first policy to deal with nuclear rogue state
America and its allies South Korea and Japan. (See Kim Jong-il shifts
to plan B, Asia Times Online, May 21)
The nuclear game plan is designed firstly to militarily prevent
the US from throwing a monkey wrench into the plans of the Kim Jong-il
administration for economic prosperity by 2012 - the centenary of the
birth of founding father Kim Il-sung - in a bid to complete its
membership of the three elite clubs of nuclear, space and economic
Its second aim is to win the hearts and minds of the 70 million
Korean people, North, South and abroad, and leave little doubt in their
eyes that Kim Jong-il has what it takes to neutralize and phase out the
American presence in Korea. This will hasten the divided parts of
ancestral Korean land - bequeathed by Dankun 5,000 years ago and Jumon
2,000 years ago - coming together under a confederal umbrella as a
It is designed to impress upon the Korean population that Kim
Jong-il is a Korean David heroically standing up to the American
Goliath, that he can lead the epic effort to settle long-smoldering
moral scores with the US over a more than 100-year-old grudge match
that dates as far as the 1905 Taft-Katsura Agreement and the 1866
invasion of Korea by the USS General Sherman.
Third, Kim Jong-il has described the shift to plan B as a stern
notice for the governments of the US and its junior allies that they
cannot get away with their hostile behavior any longer, unless they are
prepared to leave their booming economies consumed in a great
conflagration of retaliatory thermonuclear attacks.
The game plan assumes that the US is unlikely to shake off its
aggressive behavior until it is wiped off this planet. The Barack Obama
administration has not taken much time to reveal its true colors, which
are no different from the George W Bush administration. There have been
four compelling signs:
First, the March 9-20 Key Resolve (Team Spirit) joint war games
between the US and South Korea.
Second, the US-led United Nation Security Council's (UNSC)
condemnation of an innocuous April 5 satellite launch.
Third, the rehashing of counterfeit money charges that the US has
failed to produce compelling evidence to support. As Newsweek wrote in
its June 8 issue, "The Treasury Department couldn't find a single shred
of hard evidence pointing to North Korean production of counterfeit
Fourth, the presence of Bush holdovers in the Obama
administration, such as Stuart Levy, the architect of Bush-era
financial sanctions intended to criminalize the DPRK.
Four types of hydrogen bomb raids
The game plan for nuclear
war specifies four types of thermonuclear assault: (1) the bombing of
operating nuclear power stations; (2) detonations of a hydrogen bombs
in seas off the US, Japan and South Korea; (3) detonations of H-bombs
in space far above their heartlands; and (4) thermonuclear attacks on
their urban centers.
