What Kim Jong Un Knows is really at stake


Provocation and Effect (Desperation)

North Korea's foreign minister accuses President Trump of declaring war after Trump said the regime "won't be around much longer." That gives the rogue regime "the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers even when they are not flying in North Korean airspace", Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York.


If North Korea attacks the U.S. military, China will standby as the U.S. retaliates. Naive U.S. citizens cringe in fear at such a horrible, though non-nuclear, prospect.  


Members of North Korea's military have been preparing for a coup since before Jong Un's father died.  As Kim orders more unpopular executions to scare his military for any suspected disloyalty, as food stocks dwindle and oil supplies are tightly rationed this coming winter, a military coup will become more popular with ordinary citizens. His own actions have only sped the inevitable coup that Kim Jong Un has always feared. 

And "Rocket Man" [a Trump appellation] Kim fears South Korea has 'spotters' following his every movement, as well as spies in DPRK's ArmyBy now Kim must assume that there has to be at least one Chinese informer among his leadership cabinet. 

Trump's provocations are not over. Their impact has been calculated to escalate gradually. Kim's time is running out. Western news has been covertly getting in, and if Kim survives another 12 months he wins  -- becoming almost invincible in a non-nuclear chess strategy as a formidible future nuclear threat.  This will not happen; either an internal coup takes him out, or he will disappear from public view forever after an ostensible visit to China, a hospital, or a vacation retreat.  

The countdown for Rocket Man is at about this stage: 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 3, 1, 0.  

Submarines are always silent and strange.
