    "We don't want a unified Korean peninsula ... We [also] don't want the North Koreans to cause more trouble than the system can absorb."
    —Hillary Clinton, 2013, speech to Goldman Sachs

    This is the thing, the current situation suits the US, the NK know this and they sabre rattle as a negotiation tactic. They will be very unlikely to do anything too rash and so will the US, it is a balance of sorts that suits all players... for now.

    IS NORTH KOREAN NAVY REALY DANGEROUS ? || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Apr 28, 2017
    In the event of a war with on the Korean Peninsula, North Korea’s naval forces might prove to be nuisance to allied forces if they are operating close to shore, but the threat is manageable.

    Nonetheless, U.S. and South Korean naval shores need to keep on their toes—otherwise, they could find themselves ambushed—and suffer the fate of ROKS Cheonan (PCC-772). The Pohang-class corvette was sunk by a North Korean mini-submarine armed with CHT-02D wake-homing torpedoes on March 26, 2010 in an unprovoked attack.

    Get with the 'Program' guys. With China giving indications that will employ energy sanctions against NK, there's no way that Kim san can do anything except talk big if he wants to persist. The rest is just Doom Porn, which as many seem to have latched onto, can be sold by the bucket load in the US.

    What I'm finding really interesting, and as mentioned in Zed's post above, is that US policy wants to see NK remain as it is. Seems to be saying that the prospect of NK and its potential productive capacity, assuming it would rival that of SK, is something to be discouraged.

    Pea shooter against a battleship, with or without power. JMHO. All talk and IF the talking ever turns to serious action then NK will be a crispy crunchy in minutes.... but then, the contagion could be painful as China reacts. Also no place for a land war, tech against shear numbers would make it Iraq on steroids... JMO.

    If you make a reasonable assumption that the people of NK are no more, or less stupid than any other people on the planet. Then it may also be reasonable to assume that were China to severely restrict the energy import of the already energy poor country that NK is, that Kim San would face his own Ceaușescu moment in short order ?

    I'd be willing to bet that even now, groups of the upper echelons in NK are plotting to give the Kim guy the bums rush. I'd guess that he even realises that it'll be no good to keep the motor running, for the simple reason nowhere would take him in.

    NORTH KOREA: THE MILITARY OPTIONS || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on May 23, 2017
    The Trump administration claims “all options are on the table” for dealing with North Korea’s nuclear-weapons program—from using military force, to pressuring China to cut off economic relations with North Korea, to Donald Trump negotiating directly with Kim Jong Un. But what do those options look like? And what consequences could they have? This series explores those questions, option by option.

    South Korea Military Fires "Warning Shots" At Unidentified Object Flying From The North

    [​IMG]
    by Tyler Durden
    May 23, 2017 6:09 AM


    The South Korean fired warning shots Tuesday at an "unidentified object" flying across the heavily fortified border from North Korea Tuesday afternoon according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The military detected the object traversing the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) southward in the Chorwon area in the eastern province of Gangwon at around 4 pm.

    [​IMG]
    South Korean army's K-55 self-propelled howitzers fire during the annual
    exercise in Paju, near the border with North Korea on Monday, May 22.

    According to Yonhap News, a defense source said the military fired more than 90 K-3 machine gun rounds, adding it may have been a drone. The South's military is analyzing the object and its route and has beefed up its air defense posture, said the JCS. The incident added to already-high tensions between the Koreas following the North's continued ballistic missile launches.

    In January last year, a North Korean drone flew over the MDL into the western section of the demilitarized zone. The South opened machine gun fire on it.

    South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that the South Korean military bolstered its air surveillance and broadcast a warning to North Korea in response to the object. It provided no other details.

    The Koreas face off across the world's most heavily armed border, and the two sides occasionally clash. In 2014, they traded machine gun and rifle fire after South Korean activists released anti-North Korean propaganda balloons across the Demilitarized Zone that bisects the Korean Peninsula, but no casualties were reported. Attacks blamed on North Korea in 2010 killed 50 South Koreans.

    Colonel Tony Schaeffer said yesterday, that he believes the NK fried Otto's brain by administering sodium pentathol (sp) repeatedly. Look for video taped confessions, with all kinds of wild scenarios coming down the road possibly. I think Kim may have shit in his mess kit this time.

    Our Attack Sub Commanders would have a field day hunting down Kim's subs. It would be good live training anyway. Like shooting fish in a barrel I would imagine. That's if the NK's had enough fuel to go anywhere. Gotta refuel at some point, when all you have is diesel, and surfacing to clear systems, etc. periodically would be their demise. How would you like to be a NK on one of Kim's subs, when he orders you out to see, to take on the Americans?

    U.S. President Donald Trump will speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday, calls that come as frustration builds in the White House over North Korea's nuclear program and overcapacity in the steel market.

    The talks come ahead of meetings he will hold with both leaders on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7-8 where trade practices are expected to be high on the agenda.

    Trump, who pledged a hard line on trade during his campaign for office, has been weighing new quotas or tariffs on steel imports for national security reasons and plans to discuss his concerns at the G20.

    The White House said the phone calls were scheduled starting at 8 p.m. EDT (0000 GMT Monday).

    Trump, who met with Xi in April in Florida, had said he was willing to work with China on trade issues but wanted to see Beijing use its economic leverage to force North Korea to scale back its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, which are a threat to the United States and allies South Korea and Japan.

    But Trump has become frustrated that China has not done more to pressure Pyongyang, and has been considering moving ahead on trade actions.

    Trump also called for a determined response to North Korea after talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday in Washington.

    North Korea and the rich, democratic South are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. Pyongyang defends its weapons programs as necessary to counter U.S. hostility and regularly threatens to destroy the United States.

    HOW WAR WITH NORTH KOREA COULD START AND WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Jul 9, 2017
    Often dismissed as wild rhetoric, that nightmare scenario has become significantly more likely after the country's successful test launch on Tuesday of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

    Analysts have devised a number of scenarios of how tensions might develop into a conflict that would devastate the peninsula and, potentially, neighbouring countries such as Japan.
