Will Globalists Use North Korea To Trigger Catastrophe?

Will Globalists Use North Korea To Trigger Catastrophe?

Whenever discussion over North Korea arises in Western circles, it always seems to be accompanied by a strange mixture of sensationalism and indifference. The mainstream media consistently presents the communist nation as an immediate threat to U.S. national security, conjuring an endless number of hypothetical scenarios as to how they could join forces with al-Qaida and attack with a terroristic strategy. At the same time, the chest puffing of the late Kim Jong Il and the standard fare of hyper-militant rhetoric on the part of the North Korean government in general seem to have lulled the American public into a trance of non-concern.

In the midst of the latest tensions with the North Koreans, I have found that most people are barely tracking developments and that, when confronted by the idea of war, they shrug it off as if it is a laughable concept. “Surely” they claim, “The North is just posturing as they always have.”

The high-focus propaganda attacking North Korea on our side and the puffer fish methodology on their side have created a social and political atmosphere surrounding our relations with the Asian nation that I believe places both sides of the Pacific in great danger. North Korea has the potential to become a trigger point for multiple economic catastrophes, and there are people in this world who would be happy to use such crises to serve their own interests.

The mainstream view being espoused by globalist-minded politicians and corporate oligarchs with an agenda is that North Korea is a nuclear armed monstrosity ready to use any subversive means necessary to strike the United States. The idea that the North is working closely with al-Qaida has been suggested in everything from White House briefings to cable news to movies and television. The concept of pan-global terrorist collusion and the cartoon-land “axis of evil” has been prominent in our culture since the Administration of George W. Bush. It has even been making a resurgence lately in the MSM, which presented countries like Iran, Syria And North Korea as the primary culprits behind the failure of the U.N. Small Arms Treaty.

Of course, what remains less talked about in the mainstream is the fact that these nations refuse to adhere to the treaty because carefully placed loopholes still allow major powers like the United States to feed arms into engineered insurgencies. Why would Syria or any other targeted nation sign a treaty that restricts its own sovereign ability to trade while giving teeth to internal enemies trained and funded by foreign intelligence agencies?

The establishment brushes aside such facts and consistently admonishes these countries as the last holdouts standing in the way of a new world order, a worldwide socioeconomic cooperative and pseudo-Utopia. The path to this wonderful global village is always presented as a battle against stubborn isolationists, non-progressives who lack vision and cling desperately to the archaic past. The values of personal and national sovereignty are painted as outdated, decrepit and even threatening to the newly born world structure. The image of North Korea is used by globalists as a kind of straw man argument against sovereignty. North Koreans’ vices and imbalances as a culture are many; but this is due in far larger part to their communist insanity, rather than any values of national independence. It is their domestic hive-mind collectivism we should disdain, not their wish to maintain a comfortable distance as a society from the global game.

As far as being an imminent physical threat to the United States, it really depends on the scenario. The North Koreans have almost no logistical capability to support an invasion of any kind. The nation has been suffering from epidemic famine for well more than a decade.

To initiate a war outright has never been in the best interests of the North Koreans, simply because their domestic infrastructure would not be able to handle the strain. However, there is indeed a scenario in which North Korea could be influenced to use military force despite apprehension.

With the ever looming threat of famine comes the ever looming threat of citizen revolution.  When any government is faced with the possibility of being supplanted, it will almost always lash out viciously in order to maintain power and control, no matter the cost. Sanctions like those being implemented by the West against North Korea today, at the very edge of national famine, could destabilize the country entirely. I believe the North would do anything to avoid an internal insurgency scenario, including attacking South Korea to acquire food stores and energy reserves, as well as other tangible modes of wealth.

North Korea’s standing army, obtained through mandatory conscription, is estimated at about 1.1 million active personnel, very close to the numbers active in the U.S. armed forces. But North Korean reserves are estimated at more than 8 million, compared to only 800,000 in the United States. If made desperate by economic sanctions, the North Koreans could field a massive army that would wreak havoc in the South and be very difficult to root out on their home turf. Asian cultures have centuries of experience using asymmetric warfare (the kryptonite of the U.S. military), and I do not believe it is wise to take such a possible conflict lightly, as many Americans seem to do. It is easy to forget that the last Korean War did not work out so well for us. At best, we would be mired in on-ground operations for years (just like Iraq and Afghanistan) or perhaps even decades. Like North Korea, we also do not have the logistical economic means to enter into another such war.

The skeptics argue that we will never get to this point, though, because North Korea has brandished and blustered many times before, all resulting in nothing. I see recent events being far different and more urgent than in the past, and here’s why:

  • The West needs to realize that North Korea is under new leadership. The blowhard days of Kim Jung Il are over, and little is known about his son, Kim Jong Un. So far, the young dictator has followed through on everything he said he would do, including the multiple nuclear tests that the West is using as an excuse to exert sanctions. To assume that the son will be exactly like the father is folly.
  • Many people claimed that North Korean threats to abandon the Armistice in place since 1953 were empty, yet they dropped it exactly as they said they would at the beginning of March.
  • The North has begun cutting off direct communication channels to the South, including a cross-border hotline meant to help alleviate tensions through diplomatic means.
  • The North has officially declared a state of war against the South. This has been called mere “tough talk” by the U.S. government, but the speed at which these multiple developments have occurred should be taken into consideration.
  • At the beginning of this year, silver purchases by the North from China surged. For the entire year of 2012, the government purchased $77,000 worth of precious metals. In the first few months of 2013, North Korea has already purchased $600,000 in silver. The exact size of the North’s precious metals stockpile is unknown. Though seemingly small in comparison to many purported metal holdings by major powers, this sudden investment expansion would indicate a government move to protect internal finances from an exceedingly frail economic environment.  Metals are also historically accumulated at a high rate by nations preparing for war or invasion in the near term.

Again, all that is needed to instigate an event on the Korean Peninsula are tightened sanctions. The establishment knows this, though another Gulf of Tonkin incident (an openly admitted false flag event) may be on the menu as well.

Given that the chances of a shooting war are high if sanctions continue, it might be wise to consider the consequences of conflagration in Korea.

Dealing with a large army steeped in asymmetric and mountain warfare will be difficult enough.  In fact, an invasion of North Korea would be far more deadly than Afghanistan, if only because of the sheer number of maneuver elements (guerilla-style units) on the ground. But let’s set aside North Korea for a moment and consider the greatest threat of all: the dollar collapse.

As I have discussed in numerous articles, China, the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, has positioned itself to decouple from the American consumer and the dollar. This is no longer a theoretical process as it was in 2008, but a very real and nearly completed one. Mainstream analysts often claim China would never break from the dollar because it would damage their export markets and their investment holdings. The problem is, China is already dumping the dollar using bilateral trade agreements with numerous developing nations. It isn’t just talking about it; it is doing it.

The development of a decoupled China is part of a larger push by international banks to remove the dollar as the world reserve currency and replace it with a new global currency. This currency already exists. The International Monetary Fund’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR) is a mechanism backed by a basket of currencies as well as gold. The introduction of the SDR on a wide scale is dependent on only two things.

First, China has been designated the replacement consumer engine in the wake of a U.S. collapse. They have already surpassed the United States as the No. 1 trading power in the world. However, they must spread their own currency, the Yuan, throughout global markets in order to aid the IMF in removing the dollar. China has recently announced a program to sell more than $6 trillion in Yuan denominated bonds to foreign investors, easily fulfilling this need.

Second, China and the IMF need a scapegoat event, a rationale for dumping the dollar that the masses would accept as logical. A U.S. invasion of North Korea could easily offer that rationale.

While China has been playing the good Samaritan in relations with the United States in dealing with North Korea and has supported (at least on paper) certain measures including sanctions, China will never be in support of Western combat actions in the Pacific so close to their territory. The kind of U.S. or NATO presence a war with North Korea would generate would be entirely unacceptable to the Chinese, who do not need to respond using arms. Rather, all they have to do to get rid of us would be to fully dump the dollar and threaten to cut off trade relations with any other country that won’t do the same. The domino effect would be devastating, causing U.S. costs to skyrocket and forcing us to pull troops out of the region. At the same time, the dollar would be labeled a “casualty of war” rather than a casualty of conspiratorial global banking designs, and the financial elites would be removed from blame.

Ultimately, we should take North Korea seriously not because of the wild-eyed propaganda of the mainstream media and not because they are “doing business with terrorists” or because they are a “violent and barbaric relic of nationalism,” but because a war in North Korea serves the more malicious interests of globalization. No matter what happens in the near future, it is important for Americans to always question the true motives behind any event and ask ourselves who, in the end, truly benefited.

    Even with the domino effect, America has vast reserves of oil, gas and coal and other natural resources like “FOOD”, nomatter what effect the dollar demise or PetroDollar demise — America must be neutralized, or China cannot assure itself a permanent place at the top.

    IMHO China will sacrifice North Korea to achieve a EMP type strike from the coasts east, west, gulf using NK weapons and ships. America is a country of people that can rise up to almost any proplem and solve it, recover and return even stronger, esp from something like a monetary collapse — they must do something more.

    We “Americans” must be utterly destroyed, not the land, not the resources, they want those for the future, just the people must be destroyed and or subdued.

    An EMP strike from NK will do the trick, within 1 month millions will die, one year it is estimated 70%.

    • James

      It is little known that China is developing a huge cavalry – that’s right, horse soldiers. Taking a cue from Ghengis Khan. The plan is if that an EMP strike wipes out high tech weapons and communications, they will have the largest and most mobile military on the Eurasian landmass.

      They claim it’s just for ceremonial purposes, though.

      As for the leader of N. Korea, that chubby little twerp with a bad haircut couldn’t even get a date in any other country. Dennis Rodman called him “humble”… right… that’s why he had thens of thousands parade in honor or his birthday. Comparisons to Nero and Caligula are not too far off. Where is a gladiator like the one who knocked off emperor Commodus when the world needs him?

      N. Korea is not a Republic, but an empire ruled by sociopaths who inherit power. There brainwashed population lives in a fantasy world of their leaders making.

    Eventually will have to go war against these North Korean [comment has been edited]. Don’t want to make peace with us. We have to support our allies and the South.

      Tough guy1, what you say is exactly what we were told about the Russians during the cold war! “There is no way we can avoid war with Russia! They are evil and they will attack us” So people dug up their back yards for bomb shelters and all they got was a drainage problem! You can see the same mentality in the desert today where the preppers have dug their holes and are teaching their children to shoot at evil imaginary neighbors!

        I do not believe the author of this article is trying to scare us into buying his prepper props although doing so would be a proper proposition to propound. We have many real and scary reasons to lack confidence in our life style of sitting in tiny houses, surrounded by millions of other tiny houses, with our lifeline dependent on transportation using filthy monopolized fossil fuels and connected to the outside world by electronics which can be accidentallly or purposefully cut off at any moment: volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, solar flares, meteorites, tsunamis, nuclear power plant radioactivity from failures,the collapse of the dollar, etc. Little old No. Korea ranks rather low on the list of reasons to want to be off the grid and able to produce most of our own food and pump our own clean water. If you pay attention, you will see the government bigwigs have a suitcase packed to head for the holes in them thar hills (Holes they had dug at taxpayers expense by the way) at the drop of a hat, so to speak They have a cost over run of at least $4 billion at the Denver Airport with underground transportation connections to facilities under granite mountains where some pretty bitter struggles can be imagined when supplies start running low.

      • speedle

        Well, nc. What would be your take on the pot bellied Korean dwarf? You seem to draw a parallel with the cold war and the Soviets. Do ya think that might be a bit of a stretch given the capabilities of the Russians vs. the capabilities of N. Korea? Maybe you think we should bribe them with cash and beg them not to lob a nuke on Alaska. Or maybe you think we should just ignore them like a barking dog in the neighbor’s yard.

  • Maynard

    This is another beautifully written, insight filled article by Brandon Smith. I am not knowledgeable about the NWO, but I do agree that economic turmoil provides a sure impetus for governments to seek war as a distraction or panacea – which it never is. It makes sense that No. Korea looks to their most vulnerable neighbor, So. Korea, as a place to fight off their famine. Of course, they also would like to reunite the Korean people under their form of government.
    The US response to their recent bellicosity has been surprisingly muted and Brandon’s article explains why. China is in the equation and our traitorous corporations that have sent good, profitable companies to work under the slave labor conditions permitted there in order to wring out a bit more profit, have placed us in an ever more vulnerable position.
    In the final analysis, it is our economic strength that made us preeminate not our military machinations. Yet we have sacrificed the former for the latter. Our military has drained our wealth for the aggrandizement of the wealthy who have then squandered it or sent it abroad. Mitt Romney is a perfect example. Kill good industry and jobs here, such as happened in Freeport, Il, this fall. Place your profit in banks abroad, and try to get political power to accelerate the process.
    To me, a simple, Christian-like tactic would be to assure No. Korea that they will not starve. Send them food. Christ taught us to love our enemies. but the act of loving anyone, let alone our enemies has long since been eschewed by the egotistical, greedy gang who sees money as power and power as money. Nevertheless, this food for peace program could be presented as a strategy to forestall No.Korea’s strongest motive for aggression.

      In many ways Kim Jong is a Nero. He looks at his people like the Emperor Caligula looked at his subjects. “If I am man, then my subjects are something else. If they are men, then I must be something more”. His people are nothing but things to feed his ego with. In his country he is a god, to die for if necessary. Lenin and Stalin thought like he does, and I’m ihclined to believe Obama does to.

      Not in the “Grand Plan” but certainly an added bennie as far as a nuclear N. Korea goes. There are only 3 reasons to own a nuclear weapon…

      1) You’re going to use it- Use would most certainly elicit a response. Despots of the Kim Jung clan don’t have a crazy jihad mentality, looking for excuses to nuke infidels, and are cowards at heart. They want their personal gravy train to “keep on rollin’”… the citizenry be damned… and they will not jeopardize their acquired life-style.

      2) It’s a deterrent- Don’t look now, but I don’t see anyone looking to invade the country or loot N. Koreas’ resources.

      3) For blackmail purposes- This is the only logical explanation. Payoffs, protection money, and foreign aid to keep a starving populace from uprising.

    N. Korea reminds me of my little brother when he tried to tag along when we were young. He was always trying to force the older boys to pay attention to him and let him be part of the group. And he wanted to play whatever we were playing and WIN. He couldn’t understand why we ignored him all the time.

    To tell the truth, I’m not particularly worried about those there. I seriously doubt if they can afford a protracted war and I doubt if they have the ammo, etc. to handle one. I believe they have a treaty with China that obligates China to help them IF we shoot first … but not if they do. So they beg for us to shoot at them first so they can get China (the big brother) to help. As long as we continue to ignore them, I don’t really think we need to worry about them. And so they do shoot a missile at us. We have too many launchers able to shoot down what they try to use on the USA. I don’t think anything will reach us … unless our own politicians want it to do so.

    Obama is sending 90,000 troops over there including reserves doing their one month a year training. Then we send bombers over head dropping practice bombs in the area holding the largest ever training with the south. This sets us up for the north’s first strike in the south killing our troops (who will not shoot at Americans) and giving Obama the reason he needs for military law, taking our guns, bank accounts and safety deposit boxes via DHS who told the banks they have the right to our safety deposit boxes just the other day. Or so they think, but I have yet to meet anyone that will willing turn over their arms, let them take their money, gold, silver or anything else without a fight.

    And when one cannot repay their debts, they sometimes get very aggressive. And no, I’m not referring to N. Korea. One question. Over the past five years, would you say the “west” has become 1.) stronger or 2.) weaker? And “martha” the answer of course is, SDR’s are not a venereal disease, however you keep your focus on “womens rights”, “gay rights”, “gun control”, “illegal immigration”, “white supremacy groups” and all the rest of the “progressive travesty’s” currently afflicting Amerika. The rich are getting richer and the poor? Well, they’re expendable. Just like the so called “blob” of cells in their womb. When history looks back on the “amerikan progressive era”, it will be called mankinds biggest failure. Out of the ashes will come a new day and new Patriots will emerge because Freedom will once again take “center stage”. Under the NWO, possibly the “Patriots” may begin to surface in North Korea.

    From the first “conservative” president post WWII we have this problem. However, because America is used to forgetting what these Aholes do to us, we will probably have to go to war again.

  • Maynard

    Dear Mr. Warrior, your assertion that we have been in the throes of Progressivism is laughable. Do you consider Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and the Bush’s Progressive? Do you consider Obama who has signed off on the Police State measures prepared for him on a BIPARTISAN basis PROGRESSIVE? You have got to be kidding!
    The most used evidence you can point to is Obamacare and that will save our economy from funneling more and more cash into the Health Conglomerates coffers. It will cut medical expenses by making them more efficient. Instead of relying on the emergency room for routine care the more economical managed care will take its place. Guess who pays for the emergency room treatments the patients cannot pay? The good old middle class taxpayers.
    On foreign affairs, secrecy in government, advancement of the Police State, Obama has been right their with your roly-poly Lindsey Graham-Cracker, your Israel-Firsters like Lieberman, your gun-grabbers like Weinstein.
    As a liberal, I assure you it was not conservatives who wrote our Bill of Rights. It was radical revolutionaries who despite being wealthy themselves, demanded the same basic freedoms because “All men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. Among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Do you see any reason why ALL MEN should exclude gays, women, minority groups, the disabled or the poor? Any doubts that the founders may not have included some of those groups should have been cleared up by additional amendments to OUR Constitution long, long ago.

LBJ was a Democrat and he was the guy who created the “Gulf of Tonkin” incident so his wife/himself could make $$$$ off of their majority ownership of Bell-Huey shares.

    nc, you are delusional and live in your own fantasy world.

    Progressives were fought every step of the way to maintain individual freedom and responsibility. Real Americans in the private sector grew this country because they had freedom to ” build the greatest nation the world has known.” Government built nothing and created nothing, but taxes and debt.

    Progressives have done everything possible to take this country BACK to a “Feudal State” where the modern equivalents of” feudal lords” own everything and the masses are enslaved. Progressive doctrine is nothing but the destruction of the free world. Progressives are “retros, throwbacks” to a time when there was no individual freedom or wealth.

  • The Christian American

    Kim Jong was schooled largely in Switzerland and was known as a playboy. I loves the dainties in life. When he replaced his father as leader his view on life didn’t change. He looks at the US with contempt but he’s not stupid but cunning. When he can get under the skin of the US he’ll do it and thouroghly enjoy it. The same goes for South Korea. For America he’s a nuisance because he has nothing to contribute to it’s road to world empire. If he had oil things would be different. China on the other hand will contain him. The Chinese don’t want war with anybody. Their war is fought with economics. He’s a nuisance to them as well. America thouroghly believes “Might makes right” and tries to use it on Kim Jong. He knows how far he can push buttons. He knows the mind of America and in some ways knows it better. Read “The art of war” by Sun Tzu. He makes headlines to feed his ego. Don’t look at Syria and Iran, look at me. America, because of the agenda of the people running it, they’re totally motivated by fear, even fear of their own people. Osama bin Laden was a student of Sun Tzu’s teachings and knew how we would react to “The horns of Satan” being knocked down. In his mind, Kim Jong is the lion tamer armed with a whip and we’re the lion.

  • Maynard

    Reagan was not a conservative and after the assassination attempt was a mere figure-head spokesperson. The fact that Bush’s oil tycoon, campaiign supporter’s son was the shooter could not have escaped his attention, even though Bush told a whopper when he claimed he did not know the family.
    As to Kennedy, did you know Bush showed up as having a meeting with Hoover the day after JFK was slaughtered? It is proven by a memo. At this time also, Bush lied claiming it was some other George Bush. There is a photo with a man who looks just like him that was taken outside the Dallas School Book Depository right after the killing.
    Bush is the first to use the term New World Order and he only did it once, publicly.
    Eisenhower warned us against the military-industrial complex, which are controlled by the bankster-gangsters. JFK stood up to them when they wanted a false flag operation called Operation Northwoods to kill Americans in Miami and D.C. and blame it on Castro as an excuse to invade. He also wanted to return to the Constitution and have the Treasury print our money instead of paying the privately owned Federal Reserve. He also signed a decree to bring our personnel home from Vietnam by the end of ’63. All powerful reasons he was offed and the conspiracy covered up.
    What a positive difference it would have made if the Progressive JFK had lived!

    Our greatest enemy isn’t on the other side of the world. Our economy isn’t gowing dowhill because of attacks from foreign countries. Both the Republican and Democrat parties have chosen to allow a flood of Mexican immigrants to pour into our country. Both parties are lying about the purpose of this. What kind of great assets do they have? They don’t have high tech training for our high tech jobs. And contrary to what we have been told by the government, only about 10% actually provide labor for farm work. About 38% go directly onto welfare & 90% receive free medical coverage. They don’t have to pay high medical insurance premiums. They don’t even have to pay a co-pay or a deductible. Many Republican politicians are pressuring Obama to back down on his campaign promise to not lower Soc. Sec. benefits to the American elderly. The purpose of this isn’t to help the national deficit, but to use the money to provide free benefits to the Mexicans. The Mexicans don’t have to pay any taxes into Soc. Sec. before they receive govern. benefits. While elderly Americans have paid into the system for 40 or 50 years. We’re being scammed by our own government. So what are the real reasons for allowing millions of Mexicans to flood into our country? There are 2 reasons. One: It helps big business keep down wages. Two: Since 80% of all Mexicans are Catholics, the Catholic politicians want them here to please the Pope. Also, once the Catholics become a large percentage of the U.S. population, it will help the politicians vote Catholic policies and teachings into law. And what will be the result of all this? It will cripple the economy. It will create a huge welfare group. It will cause the elderly to suffer. It will drive down wages while house prices will go up. But it won’t hurt the Mexicans because they will be able to get free housing thru HUD. Property taxes will soar in order to provide free benefits to the Mexicans. Americans will pressured to conserve our natural resources while the flood of Mexican immigrants will put a huge strain on our natural resources and cause shortages and high prices. And worst of all, when Catholic policies are voted into law, we will lose our religious freedom. Once religous freedom goes, everything else will go.

    Gods Word speaks of the End Times and gives great detail of the players. Unfortunately the United States is NOT listed in the Bible, the ONLY authoritative writings in history. When it comes to prophecy the Word Of God is 100% correct and has not missed a single one . China, Iran , Russian ,Egypt, Ethiopia , Lebonon, Turkey and Israel are all mentioned in the final war but NOT America Nor either North or South Korea, as a Nation we need to repent and God will honor His Word in 2 Chronicles He will heal our land and forgive our sins…but We must turn from our ways and return to Him.

    What is going to happen when Muslim and Athiest policies are voted into law? Oh, I forgot, the Supreme Court has already taken care of those.

  • Whats it matter

    Totally correct Bernie, now if we can convince all of the people in America to return to God and repent. But, as you stated, America isn’t mentioned in the Bible, so what does that tell you? How about America no longer existed by the time of the great war and the second coming of Christ and the only ones to receive eternal life were the ones that did repent. The problem here is that the Illuminati believe Christ is chained to a boulder in hell and when God returns they will be strong enough to defeat him and satin will win. Any guess who is behind almost everything going on in the world today? Do I believe they’re right, No. All we can do is continue to spread the word, pray and hold on to your sword to defend your family. Blessings.

    Could it possibly be that only countries that were in existence were written about in the Bible? Gee, what a concept! The contributors to the Bible only were able to write about what they knew. IF the Bible were correct, would there not be allusions to countries not yet discovered? I never thought about that before, but it’s a good argument against Biblical predictions.

  • S.C.Murf

    Karolyn America IS talked about in the bible, we are seen as satans military power, but we are not brought up in the final war because satan is finished with us by then and we are no longer a nation of power

    Proud of what Darwan? Exactly what have they done in their history to be proud of? Are they proud to be under the thumb of a tyrant that keeps them ignorant and submissive as if they were personal pets? Are they proud that half their population is starving while their government spends all its assets developing warfare capabilities? Maybe they are proud of the fact that they are envious of their South Korean cousins who have created one of the worlds leading economies. Yep, they have a lot to be proud of.

  • GALT

    What have YOU got to be proud of?

    They would like to continue to exist…..( shot in the dark assumption )

    21 people died in snowmobile accidents in Wisconsin this winter…


    How about the five people killed by a drunk driver outside of Las Vegas on Sunday? I did not hear anyone screaming about needing more laws about drunk drivers, like the gun control nuts do after a shooting.

    Dear nc,

    The technical team is performing some maintenance which is causing glitches to appear in the system. I’ve been assured these should be corrected soon. In the meantime, you may have trouble accessing some articles and could see comments disappear for a short time, but all should reappear in proper order.
