  1. Crazy, North Korea’s leadership may be, but I wonder if it’s truly suicidal. As stated, it’s all alone in its belligerence and is attempting to behave as something it’s most definitely not. North Korea does not have the capability to threaten anyone for any length of time and short work would be made of it should it attempt anything of this nature. Surely, they know this.
    Should their leadership attempt anything this foolish, they might find themselves the victims of their own military out of self preservation.
    One also has to wonder at the shear stupidity of the NeoCons and their attempt to start a war with two nuclear powers, both with large, well equipped militaries, at the same time. A war of this nature on two fronts, half a world apart, at the same time, makes absolutely no common sense. What on earth are these people smoking? Do they actually believe that is a winnable scenario?
    The globalists are truly mad, but are they that insane? Do they believe they can survive it unscathed?

    1. “Do they actually believe that is a winnable scenario?”

      The last politicians who were actually in a REAL war (WWII) are either dead or out of the power structure. Everything since then has been ‘powderpuff’ wars. Look up how many soldiers died on both sides in A WEEK at Kursk. Or, how many civilians died in the ONE NIGHT firebombing of Tokyo. And, all that was with ‘ordinary’ weapons.

      The (younger) people in power now have no gut-feel what a real, no-holds-barred war is like. So, indeed, they are like the politicians who thought America’s Civil War would be over in months. Or, Europe’s WWI would be over in months. No idea of the real costs.

      So yes, from lack of real-war experience, some of them DO believe in a winnable scenario…

  2. I’m not sure Russia was threatening North Korea. It sounded to me more like they were warning North Korea that the US and South Korea would be justified in a strike against North Korea for such foolish threats and that neither Russia nor China would or could interfere if that were to happen. The west may be ready for a war with Russia and China and are trying to goad Russia and China into a trap from multiple fronts and weaknesses such as Ukraine, Syria, and now North Korea. I heard the west wants a war but it wants Russia and China to strike first so it can pretend to have the moral high ground.

  3. I think Joseph is right in the Russian ‘warning’ being in the wider geo-political sense:

    Locally, Russia is NOT warning that North Korea could get ‘invaded’ because of its nuclear-bombing rhetoric. Russia IS telling them to stop-it because it could lead to preemptive strikes on anything nuclear bomb related or long-range missile related. Pre-justified.

    Globally, Russia is concerned because – and this is the wider geo-political sense – a strike of this nature on North Korea would lower-the-threshold to a similar strike on Iran. A certain rogue Middle Eastern country is still pushing for that to occur. With a North Korea ‘precision strike’ precedent, it would be easier to implement the Iran strike and then just proclaim that Iran was being provocative in some way. The controlled press would then spin-it that way, the truth be damned. “Mission accomplished.”

    So, in my opinion, Russia is trying to head-off the initial, precedent-forming ‘precision strike’ on North Korea. “Cool it, guys…”

  4. Once again the commissar objected to my reply. I mistakenly, forgot about all the self-censorship hurtles I had to jump to avoid the trip wires. The more you write, the more hurtles you may inadvertently trip.

    Is it worth it?

    Only if you comply
    with a short and sweet,
    closely scripted reply.

  5. I don’t know whose crazier; Israel’s leaders, or North Korea’s?

    In regard’s to sovereignty; a country without it’s own issued currency, at zero interests, is sovereign – otherwise it is not. Russia, China, and other BRICSAs realize this, and want to loosen those internationally financialized anaconda like coils from their own nation states.
    The USA has had them throughout its history, and fought the American Revolution to break free. Only to have Alexander Hamilton, and other ideologues, welcome back those comforting sinewy holds on their upstart revolutionary brothers.
    All nations need to chase the money cartel’s serpents out from their state capitals, churches, institutions, and the like – if they desire to chart their own beliefs and/or course.

  6. How could you ever figure out what the North Korean’s will do with that NUT CASE running the joint. Every time the North Korean’s get “itchy”, China steps in and tells them to back off. So if Russia is sending messages to NK, then the Chinese must have been consulted, by Russia in the dialogue. Any way you slice it, NK is a lonely child, and there’s not a country anywhere who will support it. Just an small leftover country with a communist ideology, that is now just a draconian dream.

  7. Pyongyang also has a case there has been no treaty ending the Korean war. What we have is sixty three year armistice the UK-USA have refuse to sign a peace treaty ending this war. Also China and Russia would like North Korea to get it’s act together and behave itself but then Korea abuse by it’s child Japan for centuries hasn’t help either. One wonders what plans Moscow and Beijing might have for regime change in Pyongyang they’re keeping under raps.

  8. Maybe people should not get their pantys in a twist for relative small countries with “bonkers” leadership. But more about the one big great country with equally bonkers leadership playing mercantilism thru war and slavery on most of the world stage with their big armies and coopted armies.

  9. Frankly, there is a simpler explanation. Arthur C. Clarke, in the View from Serendip, describes (as well, given his understanding of libel laws, as he could) an attempt by North Korea during the sixties to foment international revolution which would install friendly governments throughout Asia. It’s worth thinking about in this context. It is also worth considering that their alleged kidnapping of even foreign nationals is more recent than acknowledged.

    Evidence suggests the North Korean government is genuinely crazy. This has never been a secret – except to them, and why the Russians would consult Japan on this is unclear. They would presumably know how Japan would react.

    I’m also somewhat baffled by the reference to the Sunni alliance, given North Korea’s alliance with Iran which apparently survives the current “warming” of relations with the latter (I met too many Iranians in the immediate aftermath of the revolution to trust that country. I could tell stories which frankly would brand me as racist in some eyes. Therefore I do believe the worst of this and that this will continue). Saudi Arabia etc. do not like North Korea either. It is that simple. And I have a hard time imagining they would see anything but – fractures they would prefer to see.
