Washington takes into consideration every single issue we wrote on N.Korea!

081205-F-5195D-0987

We don’t want to be misunderstood and thus characterized as “glory hounds” willing to make things up, for a couple of more viewers! That is why we have decided to tell you the facts one by one and compare them with what you have already read in DefenseHorizon and its affiliated website, Focus Dynamics Research Center. Let’s kick off then.

Washington, all of a sudden, has made a U-turn on the North Korean issue. We honestly do not understand what could have happened in four days, which made Washington realize the threat it is under, but after watching ABC News today, we saw all the evidence that we had been writing about. You can also view ABC’s coverage by following this link.

So apparently, the new US Defense Minister, Chuck Hagel, took a decision to bolster the US missile defense capabilities in Alaska “in response to irresponsible and reckless provocations by North Korea”, which threatens to bomb Washington by using nuclear weapons. Undoubtedly this is the correct decision taken by Hagel and should be endorsed for that, however why now? How long has it been since North Korea threatened to unleash its fury against the US? North Korea has been provocative in terms of using the same rhetoric since it performed its third nuclear test. Washington’s first reactions, except of facilitating the new UN measures against the DPRK, were way beyond today’s ones. First of all, they took it as a joke. “Don’t worry we are fully capable of defending ourselves”. If so, why Bolster Alaska’s defenses in times of severe crisis? 

The most extraordinary measure, though, was the cancellation of the third phase of the ABM shield in Poland. Again we had covered the story and we had mentioned the problem, which was Romania’s geographic position rendering it incapable of intercepting any missile coming from Iran, once those projectiles re-enter the atmosphere. You can read the full analysis here. Now, what matters is of course the inappropriate placement in terms of operational capability of a projectile interceptor along with its entailed financial costs and of course last but not least Russia’s superior missile defense capability, which the Russians, verbally at least, were willing to use in order to “wipe off” the project.

However, according to Chuck Hagel and as ABC news correctly puts it, what gave the ultimate “push” was the realization that the DPRK indeed has the means to unleash a nuclear attack against the US’s West Coast. Thus, the third phase was scrapped and instead ABM systems are to bolster the already existing ones in Alaska. This is not the end of the story, though. An analyst, Col Stephen Ganyard , USMC (ret) former Deputy Assistance of Secretary of State, appears on the news, claiming that the missiles have not actually been tested under real conditions and it is not certain whether or not they can intercept “The kind of missiles the North Koreans would shoot”!!!

How did the tables turn from “We can fully protect ourselves” to “We don’t know what kind of missiles the Koreans are gonna shoot at us?” Those people, supposedly live in the “Stone era” of modern weaponry, according to former statements, so why the panic? Why now? We believe that the US has realized who it’s dealing with. And it’s not the North Koreans only, it’s Chinese Dong Feng missile technology along with Chinese know how regarding the nukes. In other words WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WRITING ALL ALONG, ALL THIS TIME!!! In addition, regarding the anti-ballistic capability of the US, we had pinpointed the Achilles’s heel by mentioning that on the one hand the US is pursuing to build fighter jets with mounted lasers, on the other, they have not paid attention to their missile defense program. That was evident when the Patriot PAC-3s were installed in Turkey and Putin himself said that, although they can be a threat to Russia, the incorporated technology makes the projectiles easily interceptable.

And now it’s all here in front of us. North Korea’s aggressiveness, which is supported by China, thank God the Americans realized that the DPRK would not even dare launch a kite without China’s authorization. Second, the way China is pursuing the “right here right now” war in the Pacific. The latest incident, whereby an Iranian Phantom plane tried to intercept the Predator drone, shows that the alliance we have been talking about, China-Iran-N.Korea has been activated and they just check on the last responses in the Middle East region.

Last but not least, it does not matter if China does have the scientific savvy in order to produce a Plutonium bomb and mount it on a projectile, there is no need to do that anyway. As already mentioned numerous times, they can mount anything even a Jar of Marmalade and launch it on the West Coast, just to provoke the US response, so that China can engage the contingents in situ. At the same time in the Middle East, Iran will become more belligerent and more pro-active against Israel by launching a Shahab missile for example, again just to provoke Israel. Israel will respond via its Air Force, but this is not going to end up well because Iran is a huge country, plus they do have all the necessary ballistic capabilities (made in China as well) to cope with both the F-16 Sufas and the F-15 Raams (The Israelis have no B-2 Spirit, no stealth planes at all! Their first ones were supposed to be the F-35s but they will have to wait even longer as things stand with this plane).

So, we repeat, in that case the US will be compelled to fight in a war of two fronts and most importantly China does not bother wasting millions of lives in the battlefield, in contrast to the US and in general Western countries, which value human life. Only the number of abortions in the last year in China is equal to 40 times the population of the UK. Those people will stop at nothing in order to solidify their hegemony in the Pacific. They even consider the nukes to be as easily deployable as simple bullets, again contrary to nuclear powers such as the US, Russia, France and the UK, who consider nuclear weapons as the means to deter the enemy from attacking, not unleash them on any given occasion en mass, in order to maximize the casualties on the Battlefield.

Again, on such occasions we pray we are wrong, but so far we haven’t because our mentality is to follow the enemy’s logic and the Chinese were the first to invent the so called “Stratagems”. Thus, henceforth Washington should be focused on being safe rather than sorry.
