Speaking at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States had never sought war with North Korea.
“If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday,” she said. “…and if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.” – Reuters
It’s very contradicting at one point she claims that she never tried to justify a war against North Korea, but a few minutes later she goes ahead and basically tells all of North Korea (or at least those who have a working television near the South Korean border) that if the war breaks out it will be a bloodbath. It must be really reassuring for the whole international community – or at least for the representatives of those countries which actually care about the future of the region and its people.
Let’s be real here, Haley is lying and trying to hide that fact. Numerous speeches and comments of hers did nothing but impaile regional relations between the U.S. and North Korea – while it must also be added that many South Koreans look at the situation as frightening quite understandably. Still to this day meople living in South Korea has relatives and family members who lived or who are living in North Korea.
Many people care from South Korea about what happens with North Korea and vica-versa. Obviously that narrative cannot be mentioned, because then an “utter destruction” of half a nation by the other half could be seen as a vile and senseless resolution of the current international issues. One must realize that the current situation could not improve because the constant meddling in there affairs by other countries. As of today the United States and its de facto vassal, South Korea refuses to sit down at a table with North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un who is also the world youngest statesman after Austrian prime minister, Sebastian Kurz and spent his university years within a western university system, in Switzerland. As of today there is no good measure to evaluate Kim Jong Un and his past decisions since most situation reports were compiled by individuals who did not set foot in North Korea at all and the North Korean government is still running multiple propaganda campaigns . However we know according to many doctors that North Koreans have nutritional issues, suffer from widespread poverty and there are serious problems in hospitals and other medical facilities due to the lack of supply of medicine, chemical sterilization liquids and surgical instruments. Launching an all-out offensive against the country would surely deprive the citizens of North Korea of their safety and it would massively impact their life standards (in a bad way), even possibly causing famine and starvation in the country. The latter reason is why China and Russia wants to avoid sanctions which would impact the North Korean food industry and their food imports.
North Korea and Afghanistan
You might think that there is no connection between 2001’s Afghanistan and2017’s North Korea, but you would be gravely mistaken.
The Wealth of North Korea and Afghanistan
As many journalists pointed out before, North Korea is sitting on about $3 to $6 trillion of rare earth minerals which are essential in the manufacturing of computer chips, mobile phones, electric vehicles, new-generation weapon systems, drones, lasers and several different objects which we take for granted today. China explicitly expressed in the last year that it will quit exporting rare earth materials to other countries due to the great environmental costs of refining such elements. In the last decades the extraction and refinement of such elements costed Chine greatly by creating wastelands within the country. As of today countries such as the United States buy all of their rare earth materials from China which for the before-mentioned reasons wants the practice to be confined.
The situation of Afghanistan was similar to North Korea’s. The Afghan government estimated that the country has approx. $3 billion of rare-earth materials waiting to be exploited. After the occupation of Afghanistan by the U.S. coalition the U.S. government through the United States Geological Survey and Department of Defense Task Force for Business and the Stability Operations organizations has funded a project which has mapped the geographical positions of such metals using hyperspectral imaging, which “measures the reflectance of material on the Earth’s surface simultaneously across a continuous band of wavelengths broken up into 10 to 20 nanometer intervals”. A USGS study, which was completed in 2011, confirmed that at least $1 billion worth of said minerals, which translates to more than one million metric tons.
Possible scenario if war breaks out
If war breaks out it’s most likely that China and Russia won’t stand idlywatching CNN. But for the sake of the example let’s leave Russia and China outand let’s pretend that they will do nothing. Of course, that makes the whole examplevery improbable, but the point of using this examplein the first place is to clarify what the U.S. and its “allies” (de jure:allies, de facto: vassals) really want to do with North Korea.
As always behind the perhaps delightful claims of spreading freedom and democracyand fighting “dictators” all around the globe there are quitedifferent reasons in the background, which are much more beastly, which don’t care about the political system of a given country or the freedoms ofthe citizens. It’s money, because in North Korea for many rich Americans,Europeans and people of all creed and color is simply an opportunity for serious money to be made.And not just any kind of money. We are talking about returns on investmentsanywhere from 500% to 3000% across different economic sectors and industrieswithin a dozen years. North Korean labor is cheap even when somebody offerswell-paying jobs according to the country’s standards.
So, it is really easy: the U.S. goes in, makes the North Korean statea “democratic” one then proceeds to change its laws and regulations toeasily accommodate large foreign global corporations. They would hugelybenefit from the rare-earth minerals which can be found in the country, makinghuge profits while looting the country and stripping it from its resources.
Most of all: North Korean people themselves unknowingly would help these corporations(which were set up according to the unwritten rules of crony capitalism)looting their own country while working under slave labor conditions for years.Everybody (who is close to the fire) would get a nice slice of thefreshly-backed pie that is a North Korea under U.N. occupation. Of course, theliving standards would improve after the first couple of years of livingwithout running water, proper sanitation, schools, hospitals (after all NikkiHaley always keeps her promises if it’s about completely annihilating acountry), in 10-15 years it would be looking just as South Korea – although it is yet unknown how much environmental damage the refinement of those rare-earth metals would do to the country. Properinfrastructure, one of the best telecommunication networks in the world, good healthcareand of course, you guessed it: one of the highest rates of corruption. Some people in the mainstream media just love politicians receiving bribes and hush money, don’t they?
USS Liberty once again?
Does somebody remember what happened with the USS Liberty and its sailors?
On June 8th, 1967 at 1400 hours the USS Liberty was attacked by multiple torpedo boats and jet fighters. It was a deliberate and 45-minute long attack perpetrated upon the orders of the Israeli supreme command. In the said attack 34 men were killed and 178 others were wounded. The aim of the assault was that to blame it on Egyptian naval and air forces to gain a casus belli on Egypt, and also to get widespread support from the media and the people of the United States for a
military intervention War against Egypt.
Is it theoretically possible that if the North Korean army will not provoke the United States and South Korea harshly enough, as a consequence some groups within government and/or military need to get creative and prepare a false flag? That false flag would be the provocation itself which the U.S. government needs to set foot in North Korea, and which will sway public opinion greatly in favor of an all-out NATO invasion of North Korea. They have so much minerals to loot after all.
