Kim Jong-Un v. Trump: The Dynamics and Statics
Recent media drama centered around North Korea's mandatory celebration of its founding leader's 105th birthday with the ususl parade of military armanents and expectation of yet another nuclear test and/or missile launch. The drama was conveniently described as a clash between two hardliners, Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump. Kim even threatened nuclear devastation to South Korea, Japan and the U.S. mainland. The media covered their entire week-long, fake news drama.
REALITY #1: Would Vice President Pence visit the DMZ amid the hazardous strife portrayed by the news media? No, he conducted routine policy visits with our allies.
REALITY #2 "Why Did Trump's 'Armada' Sail in the Opposite Direction?"
As a distraction? No. To avoid provoking Kim to attack? Yes.
Are Kim's threats hollow? No. Are Trump's warnings to Kim bluffs? Right now, who knows?
Will trump succeed in de-nuclearizing North Korea? Yes. How? The stage has now been set for a coup d'etat in North Korea after Kim loses major face with his military. When will that happen? As failures in his ballistic launch capabilities proliferate, which will only be quickened by his promise of frequent tests and launches. No fortune tellers here, that is all on Kim.
Kim's military recently boasted it can devestate the U.S. in its own way. NK's populace are familiar with the boast. Should it prove hollow, Kim would be humiliated and high-ranking military officers will be capriciously executed. Some already are not completely loyal to Kim and are ready to support a leader who does not import luxuries for his personal consumption as so many countrymen starve. Some are also undercover spotters for South Korea, keeping regular tabs on movements of high-ranking officials. A very few of them are highly ambitious in their own right and have been awaiting a better opportunity to form a new government with help from mainland _ _ _ _ _.
Kim Jong-un is the last in his dynasty. Wait and see things unfold against his regime.
Be patient, remember that executions in North Korea do not filter through global news without time for the North Korea public to thoroughly digest the internal cover stories that will result.
We envision the loss of another North Korean submarine sometime sooner.
Submarines are always silent and strange.
