    Hey BB,

    Thought provoking stuff, but IMO, what really matters has little to do with the timing of the long-engineered US vs NK conflict.

    Fire and Fury sounds like a hastily scripted WWF matchup, LOL!

    China pulls the strings, while Russia will be right on cue with plenty of advisors and indirect support.

    As we recall historically from the Korea and Vietnam UN police actions, China provided troops, and Russian provided weapons and training.

    History rhymes, and if we keep pointing at NK, we are likely to forget who is really calling the shots:

    North Korea is a proxy for CHINA.

    As history also rhymes for us:

    Economic warfare monotonously precedes mortal combat, and the losers are ALWAYS the low-caste civilians and ground troops.

    CHINA has SERIOUS economic and internal social issues, but (no)thanks to the GREAT FIREWALL OF CHINA and the reprehensible MSM Aparachik, we don't know that, do we?

    If you think I killed your thread then just ignore me, but keep in mind that I have been actively studying Asian martial tactics for half my life, whilst simultaneously correlating said tactics with business/economic tactics.

    And all of that years and years after U.S. Army training which directly related to preparation for war with NK.

    I am starting to sound like numbers...

    IMO, the whole thing has been scripted for over 40 years.

    As for dates, I am calling August 21st.

    The quote of the week comes from William Gibson in an interview by Abraham Riesman at Vulture:

    "What I find far more ominous is how seldom, today, we see the phrase “the 22nd century.” Almost never. Compare this with the frequency with which the 21st century was evoked in popular culture during, say, the 1920s."

    If China and the U.S. go hostile do we still pay them interest on the U.S. bonds they own? Or do we buy them back?

    I think you're all wrong and here's why:

    US Warns That North Korea May Be In Possession Of A Godzilla – Waterford Whispers News


    US Warns That North Korea May Be In Possession Of A Godzilla

    [​IMG]THE United States have issued a stark warning to North Korea about the level of retaliation they will face if they attempt to attack US citizens or bases with any form of gargantuan mutated monster, following intel from Pyongyang that the DPRK has come into possession of a Godzilla.

    “We have received a dossier that North Korea may be about to unleash a Godzilla, or possibly a Rodan on US naval warships in the Pacific Ocean,” stated President Donald Trump, clearing his schedule from any investigations into irregularities with his administration so that he could properly address the developing Kaiju crisis.

    “The American people will not stand idly by and allow a dictator such as Kim Jon-un to threaten our way of life with a massive, city-stomping, fire breathing lizard creature, okay? Everybody, we need to concentrate all our attention on this. The entire west coast is at risk… have you seen the size of these things? Huge. Trust me”.

    The statement was met with scepticism from many opponents of the trump administration, who stated that Godzilla was a creature who was more connected to Japan, not North Korea, and that the North Korean administration had neither the capacity nor the resources to create a Kaiju of their own, even a shit one like Baragon or Megaguirus.

    Nevertheless, Trump pledged to divert huge amounts of funding into the US Space X and Mechagodzilla program, promising to meet any North Korean Kaiju attack with ‘massive firepower’ the likes of which the world hasn’t seen since Destroy All Monsters.

    Quite literally NK poses zero threat to the west, so something post WWII irregular is occurring. The thought occurs to me that it may be related to eugenics experiments, which appears to be driving immigration & ethnic diversity, etc.. The reunification of E & W Germany comes to mind. W Germany was by itself becoming "THE" EU's major economic powerhouse, what better way to stifle their progress then to reintroduce & reunify with E Germany. E Germany under the USSR had their gene pool severely restricted for 50 yrs.. On the other hand W Germany may have also needed the additional newly introduced labor & consumers provided by reunification.

    Look at the recent economic expansions of S Korea, their KIA automobile brand & various electronic production, etc. that have entered & now compete in the global economy. Like W Gemany, S Korea must expand both its gene, labor & its domestic consumer pools to remain competitive in the global market place.

    I for one dont buy into NPRK being a major threat to the Western military powers & the propaghanda surrounding the desire to reunify Korea is ad absurdum! Guam with a pop of 168k coming under attack when the NPRK borders the US vassal state of S Korea? Come on, what b.s. is the deep state Trump-eteering to raise a consensus to attack the NPRK? Trump may be a salesman, but selling this one is akin to selling the Inuits an iceberg....

    Of course I would also presume China & Russia for various military geographical & market competition wouldnt want to observe for obvious reasons a reunification of Korea.

    Of course a reunification opens up a newly reunified Korea for dollarization & new investment for London & Wall Street, etc..

    ^^^ What you are saying is "follow the money"? When the petro dollar is coming to it's end? To keep the dollar significant? When others are starting to use work arounds to the dollar, metals, rigged markets?

    Its a system, systems are akin to civilzations, etc., they either expand or they tend to collapse from entropy.

    The greater a population becomes educated, sophisticated & skilled, that population will not willingly toil @ menial unskilled tasks. This is a problem created by technical progress, complexity & education. Skilled labor wont empty garbage cans or toil in the mundane employment of lower paying unskilled monotinous assembly line production. These tasks can only be filled by the uneducated or lower skilled workers.

    Note that E Germany led by the now defunct USSR provided only minimal living standards, education & working skills to the E German population. This effectively held & maintained half of the German labor pool in a surplus. A surplus labor pool that could be exploited @ reunification. The former E Germans would not complain about working conditions & low wages after their previous subsistence living standards under the management of the USSR. The E German was politically & ideologically indoctrinated to a scarcity of food staples, transportation, clothing, energy & health care, etc. for most of their lives. Their low standard of living insured that both skilled & unskilled E German wage labor upon reunification would fully obey, adhere, adapt & almost worship their new masters politically, financially & economically. Considering daily life under the USSR, reunification was like entering the garden of Eden for the E Germans....

    The ? therein lays if this is the model for reunifying South & North Korea??? S Korea is growing economically & financially, opening new domestic labor & consumer markets to the peoples of the North fits perfectly in the model.... if it is in fact a centrist planned model.

    Note that when consumption & living standards are depressed, the people will toil without objection to raise their standards of living. This has been very effective even with the political oppression in China. The subjugated peoples of the NPRK would make the perfect slaves for the vassal state of S. Korea, for they have been indoctrinated to absolute political & economic servitude for over 60 yrs. In essence they are already trained to be fully obedient when orders from authority figures are given.

    S. Korea as a modern educated economic state is effectively finding itself with a scarcity of low cost unskilled menial labor. The only logical answer other than importing immigrants from outside of their culture & civilization is to reunify the country.

    Remember, in todays modern automated factory system, scarcity is not the problem, overproduction & servicing usury are the greatest concerns of the global financially based economic system. Theres only one means to conquer the disequalibrium, which is to expand into new markets. This is exactly what I believe is occurring, S. Korea must expand its domestic consumer base to suck up its excess production thats not sold & exported. They prolly require unskilled low paid wage slaves to remain globally competitive & also perform menial domestic activities that skilled labor wont perform such as construction, garbage collection, agrarian activities, etc....

    The U.S. as universal empire & protectorate is essentially charged with creating the regime change & reunification scheme.

    Of course I'm just guessing, yet its logical to me as this scheme has been played out over history many, many time over thousands of years. The names change, but the schemes remain the same....

    NK, China, Islam are all preparing to fight and die in order to impose their will. The West is learning how to Twerk and how to "feel" like they are making a difference by changing their facebook profile pic and that "gender fluid" is a real thing.

    Creation, creative destruction and reunification must be an old play book scheme for the masses to gobble up. BB must be spot on with all the clamour to tear down India-Pakistan wall and make them consumers of some supranational currency.
