More Than a Rumor of War
There remains an historical unresolved impasse with North Korea from the perspective of the US mindset. However, North Korea cannot be construed as being any kind of an imminent threat to Israel, except perhaps through the supply of weapons to Israel’s enemies. Consequently, I see no real physical threat to North Korea from the US and their allies anytime in the next several years -- at least until the Aegis anti-missile system has been replaced with the new system (which is predicted to be completed within just a few short years). After which, I expect that unless North Korea has gone through the proper international protocol for making such a launch, that any missile North Korea tries to launch will be immediately shot-down.|
Meanwhile, Japan finds excuses to build a military, the US trains and trains in Croatia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq and beyond; a relationship with China becomes more and more integral to the interests of the US and the West while the omnipresent potential for internal upheaval in North Korea (which would create a whole shift of power in the region) persists. But the War on North Korea simmers in North Korean isolation, sanctions and squeeze.
Hovering over the little peninsula Nation is a big guy’s Navy and guns, spies and intrusions, just watching, waiting and studying – looking for weaknesses, opportunity and excuse.
I have no good real sense of what the nasty US and Western power brokers will do beyond a few years and I think there are too many variables to see with much clarity very far ahead. But I do see an opportunity!
I see an opportunity for North Korea to take advantage of what China has to offer, and not just in China’s guidance and experience, which can provide North Korea with a real genuine working infrastructure, an international market, finances, improved productivity and yield, as well as things like alternative energy technology, etc., but because China is the new big guy in the region! China has the resources critical to the region, and soon enough, the clout to make or break any of their neighbors, financially, including Japan!
