I have the feeling that it will blow over. North Korea knows that they don't stand a chance against America. NK is just trying to provoke SK & America to strike first, but they won't. Dear God, I pray that the rising tension in NK does not escalate and that a peaceful solution can be found. Amen.

History would suggest that this will indeed blow over.

NK has spent decades rattling sabers when it wants attention or it is trying to shore up some kind of domestic position.

The big danger is that some day their internal political situation might become so dicey that a weak leader sees an actual shooting war with an external enemy as a way to secure their own position.

An imperfect example would be the Falklands Islands War. The Argentine government did not go into that crisis planning on an invasion, but desputes on S. Georgia Island spiraled out of control and the Junta eventually became more scared of not launching an invasion than it was of going to war with GB.

I don't really think anyone in NK really wants a war, but the scary scenario is one where they are more afraid of their domestic situation than in slugging it out with SK and the U.S.

We could ask the same of all those here on CM who are just fine with attacking Iran on behalf of our "ally"- unprovoked. The difference as I see it is Kim Jong Un is unstable and actually threatened the US. I believe there is only one conflict since WWII that can be justified, and that is Afghanistan. Un does not respond to reason and neither did his father and grandfather.

I think the Korean War and the Gulf War (mind you I'm talking about the one in the 90's here) are at least as justifieable as Afghanistan.

Yeah...London and Wall Street are the real world empire and their ancestors go back to the banking families of Florence, Genoa, Venice and other Italian city-states. It's has been incredibly difficult for countries to try to break free of this empire. A major difficulty is that most people don't even know that such an empire exists. US foreign policy isn't American at all. China and Russia should be major allies, but in the realm of geopolitics they're threats to the empire of London and lower Manhattan.


That's right.When people don't understand something,they call it a conspiracy and write it off,or label you as crazy.
