Talk Of Nuclear Winter Hits North Korea -- March 14, 2017

Talk Of Nuclear Winter Hits North Korea


March 27, 2018: North Korea sending huge delegation to Beijing by train -- Kim Jung Un might be among the delegation -- this would be the Asian communist pre-summit meeting prior to the US-NOKO summit in May, 2018. This is really quite incredible Regardless of how this plays out, it appears, that at least for the moment, Trump has managed to shake things up in Asia. At the end of the day, China needs to keep its billions of adolescent males employed.

March 26, 2018: Kim Jung Un making unprecedented visit to Beijing -- going by train. Unprecedented. Going to Beijing. Some suggest that Kim Jung Un is serious about denuclearization. This will incredibly interesting if an announcement of this nature is announced before summer -- one wonders if the mainstream media will even cover the announcement.

March 18, 2018: talk about a turn of events. Through South Korean intermediaries, North Korea has invited to meet one-on-one with President Trump, suggesting they are ready to talk disarmament. Congress has lets NoKo know that they will not let Kim Jung Un "play" Trump.

September 22, 2017: NK threatens to test H-bomb over the Pacific Ocean.

September 15, 2017: NK launches another missile over Japan. 

August 8, 2017: President Trump's most recent verbal response is clearer than ever

July 30, 2017: Less than a month ago, the dovish South Korea president did not want US THAAD (anti-missile protection); now that NOKO has launched two ICBM missiles in the past 48 hours, now he wants his own nuclear missiles. What a naive politician. Finally sees the light.

July 28, 2017: NOKO launches an ICBM with a range that can hit the US. Within 24 hours, a political hack is fired as Trump's chief of staff, and replaced by a retired US Marine general.

May 14, 2017: NOKO launches another ballistic missile. Goes 500 miles. For NOKO: war is an existential event. For the US: war is a military exercise.

May 1, 2017: Japan dispatches its largest warship since WWII to protect US supply ship from Kim Jong-un's missiles; supply ship apparently resupplying the USS Carl Vinson off Korean peninsula. 

April 4, 2017: NOKO fires missile into sea off east coast of South Korea. Meanwhile, USA has warned that the "clock has run out" on North Korea. Chinese President XI to meet with President Trump this weekend. Can anyone say "Chinese fireworks?"

March 28, 2017: NOKO could be in final stages of nuke test; Japan pre-emptive strike?

March 17, 2017: no links; stories everywhere. Rhetoric rising. SecState Tillerson says diplomacy has failed. Says all options -- including nuclear weapons -- in SOKO, Japan -- are on the table. To the best of my knowledge this is the first the US has confronted NOKO mano a mano, instead of easing sanctions. 

 March 14, 2017: Trump losing his patience ... after only 54 days. LOL.

Original Post 
This too may pass but the increasing number of stories on NOKO, SOKO, Japan, China, US could suggest to someone that the narrative in Washington, DC, is about to change. My hunch is the US, Japan, and SOKO are having some serious discussions.

"Boost phase interceptor" is the new catchphrase.
