Anyone watching or reading the news will have noted a significant ratcheting up of the rhetoric regarding North Korea, with recent reports declaring things like Hawaii would only have "eight to 12 minutes of notice," of notice before a nuclear strike from North Korea, or that Alaska is "concerned" about a North Korean missile, or any number of other blaring headlines over at Drudge and elsewhere.
THEATRICS ARE PART OF A PATTERN
Before starting this segment of the article, let me be very clear: North Korea or more specifically, the little thug running things there, Kim Jong un, is dangerous, not because of their "capabilities," but because much like his father, he is bat-crap crazy, where the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) that has always worked as a deterrent for nuclear powers, means diddly to him.
With that said, historically there has been a pattern in dealing with North Korea, sanctions are followed by a lot of threats and rhetoric from them, the U.S. pushes back with our own rhetoric, the international community steps in to "calm" everyone down, the sanctions don't work so more are implemented... wash, rinse and repeat.
All of which we are seeing right now play out in the news, new sanctions were just implemented, NK predictably responded with threats, President Trump promised "fire and fury," and China and Russia are telling everyone to calm down.
This pattern was further highlighted by Senator Lindsey Graham as he played his part by warning "Trump will attack 'unless the world can stop North Korea', as he warns "China should have two options: deal with the nut job in your backyard or realize there will be a war in your backyard."
While not a fan of Graham or his side-kick John McCain, whom I often refer to as frick and frack, everyone has their part to play with the sole goal of "containment." Contain the little thug of North Korea, and stop his nuclear ICBM missile quest.
DEEP STATE JUST UPPED THE ANTE
Does everyone remember the sheer freakfest over Syria where everyone was screaming it was going to cause a war with Russia? That was the warmongers in the intelligence community's intent, they want a war, they have been pushing for war, but cooler heads that do not want to see an all out nuclear world war, which would just so happen to give the depopulation crowd exactly what they want, prevailed.
So, in the midst of the pattern that we have seen time and again play out in regards to North Korea, the deep state decides to up the ante, by way of a "leak," to the Washington Post, breathlessly reporting "North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment." (Archive is link to that article)
Although more than a decade has passed since North Korea’s first nuclear detonation, many analysts thought it would be years before the country’s weapons scientists could design a compact warhead that could be delivered by missile to distant targets. But the new assessment, a summary document dated July 28, concludes that this critical milestone has been reached.
Anyone else think the timing of this "leak" is a little bit off, and gives us a clue as to what those intelligence members that are part of the deep state are perhaps setting us up for a major false flag?
While we have stated and published articles on the dangers of North Korea, the level of response to Wapo's "leaked" report has been over-the-top throughout the MSM, and it seems prudent to remember how many "bombshell" reports over the last months, coming from "leaked" reports and anonymous sources within the intelligence community in regards to Russia, have been "dead wrong," as was confirmed by former FBI director James Comey in front of congress.
One of the most egregious examples was when Washington Post's "sources" informed them that Russia had hacked the U.S. power grid, which even Forbes called them out for their "fake news," when Wapo had to issue a correction, then days later published an article stating Russia didn't hack the U.S. power grid.
Whether the report is real, or whether just selective portions were leaked, the intent of the deep state within the intelligence community, using their puppets over at Wapo, was to give Americans a reason to support an all out war against North Korea, which considering Kim's instability may be something that can't be prevented in the long run, as we have documented here by experts previously, but that time is not yet here.
DIFFERENT THREAT LEVELS
For example, North Korea's threat against Guam is something to take heed of because a strike against Andersen Air Force Base designed "to send a serious warning signal to the US " is doable, because that is one of two of the closest bases on US soil to North Korea.
North Korea’s state-run news agency KCNA said Tuesday that the government was looking at an “operational plan” that would send numerous medium- to long-range strategic ballistic missiles toward the US-owned Pacific island to counteract the bombers positioned there and “send a serious warning signal to the US.”
Specifically, the country claimed they would be firing Hwasong-12 rockets at “Andersen Air Force Base” — where US strategic bombers currently are waiting.
That is a legitimate threat, one that would undoubtedly bring about some "fire and fury" from President Trump by way of some very targeted and strategic strikes, most likely backed by Congress and the majority of the international community, but that is also a far cry from all out nuclear war, which is the only type of event that would take out enough of the world's population to satisfy the depopulation crowd.
The threat by North Korea that it could "could 'turn the U.S. mainland into the theater of a nuclear war', on the other hand, is not something experts think they have the capability to do yet, and that is what all the theater has been about, preventing the crazy little thug from getting to that threat level given how verbal he has been about his desire to attack the United States.
ARE THEY PREPARING US FOR A FALSE FLAG EVENT?
The incendiary language used by the Washington Post in stating North Korea has reached a "critical milestone," could have been deliberately leaked at a critical moment in order to set us up for a false flag attack to push America into a war with North Korea, which in turn would force the international community to choose sides.
If North Korea is crazy enough to attack a U.S. base in Guam, that would most likely be a real attack, he used his state run media to make the threat, so it isn't something our intelligence service is just claiming or using anonymous sources to "leak" to the press.
On the other hand, if an imminent nuclear attack occurs, say against Hawaii, who has been in the news recently as preparing for an attack from North Korea, given their current capabilities, then no matter the media spin, that will most likely be a false flag attack.
All eyes should be on North Korea right now because "anonymous sources" within the intelligence community have just upped the ante in an attempt to make this spiral out of control.
We are sitting on a powder keg right now thanks to the deep state and their puppets in the media.
