As this great article from The AntiMedia points out, North Korea is not in any way a threat to the United States:
In what universe does it make sense that Kim Jong-un would think attacking an “enemy” in the region would be beneficial? On Monday, Anti-Media reported on the fact that former Pentagon chief William Perry told CNN in November that North Korea would never strike first because, very simply, Kim doesn’t want to die.
“I do not believe the North Korean regime is suicidal,” he said. “Therefore, I don’t believe they’re going to launch an unprovoked nuclear attack on anyone.”
That’s because Kim has certainly applied to the situation what the mainstream narrative would like you to discard — common sense. With just a dash of it, any logical being can look at the events unfolding and see that North Korea poses no threat, to any surrounding nation, period.
The article goes on to point out that what the U.S. is really doing is setting its sights on China:
China, incidentally, reportedly just deployed 150,000 troops to its border with North Korea. Much like Japan, the reason given was preparation. Preparation for war was the message between the words.
But it wouldn’t be war with North Korea. That tiny strip of land is merely the buffer between two military juggernauts, the United States and China. That’s World War III, friends, and it has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un.
While Kim may not be a threat to the U.S., is he a threat to U.S. allies South Korea or Japan? Much more so than the U.S., certainly, but Kim is not an idiot. He knows that any first strike he launches will be his last AND gives the U.S. its desired casus belli. THAT’S the real threat–that S. Korea or Japan will be hit be some missiles and we will be told that Kim did it, and it will be untrue. Remember the Gulf of Tonkin—the second attack of August 4, 1964 did not happen, even though it was the second attack that was used to pass the Tonkin Gulf Resolution that resulted in the escalation of the disastrous war in Vietnam. We should be very wary of a similar situation happening now, especially in light of the very real questions over the intelligence regarding the alleged gas attack by Assad that led to the cruise missile attack on a Syrian airfield earlier this month.
