    N Korea prepares for 'fourth nuclear test'

    North Korea is showing "signs" of preparing a fourth nuclear test, South Korean Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-Jae has said, with reports of stepped up activity at its main atomic test site.
    The daily JoongAng Ilbo on Monday had cited intelligence reports showing a sharp increase in activity at the North's Punggye-ri nuclear test site since last week.


    "We are closely monitoring the ongoing situation, which is very similar to the situation seen ahead of the third nuclear test," the newspaper quoted a senior government official as saying.


    "There are such signs," the unification minister told a parliamentary committee hearing when lawmakers asked him to confirm the reports, but declined to elaborate.

    Not a lot is being reported other than they are showing signs of actions they have done in the past before nuclear tests.

    Same pattern as always: Escalation followed by Accomodation

    Hopefully the US ICBM cancelation can be seen as enough of a gesture.

    Re: N Korea prepares for 'fourth nuclear test'

    This Quote by UK Defence Secretary William Hague sums it up quite well:

    "What is going on is what we have often seen throughout history… this is a regime that has to justify the intense militarisation of their society."

    765. How to justify a nuclear attack? (4/1/2013)

    There is a lively stage show in Korea Peninsula in recent days. North Korea had its third nuclear test in February. US and South Korea had a military drill in March. US sent B-52 in the drill then showed off with B-2 bombers there. N. Korea upgrades the threat almost everyday. US media is full of the topics such like: “North Korea said it would attack U.S. military bases on Japan and the Pacific island of Guam if provoked.”, “North Korea threatens to 'settle accounts with the US'”, “North Korea says enters "state of war" against South”…… But that war only exists in the mouth not in reality. It is actually a sale’s advertisement. The commodity is the nuclear weapon.

    Renewed nuke sale fear after recent NKorea test
    By FOSTER KLUG | Associated Press – 3/19/2013

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea's nuclear test last month wasn't just a show of defiance and national pride; it also serves as advertising. The target audience, analysts say, is anyone in the world looking to buy nuclear material.

    North Korea’s Lesson: Nukes for Sale

    By GRAHAM T. ALLISON Jr. Published: February 12

    Who could be interested in buying a weapon for several hundred millions of dollars? Iran is currently investing billions of dollars annually in its nuclear quest. While Al Qaeda’s core is greatly diminished and its resources depleted, the man who succeeded Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has been seeking nuclear weapons for more than a decade. And then there are Israel’s enemies, including wealthy individuals in some Arab countries, who might buy a bomb for the militant groups Hezbollah or Hamas.

    Bush started Iraq War with a un- existed “WMD”. US won’t make similar mistake again in Iran war. So they directed a puppet show. In this show, N. Korea bangs the drum: “I have nuclear bomb. I’m enemy of the US. My nuke bomb is on sale if you are hostile to US. Come to pick up a bargain.”

    So don’t be surprise that US and its Western allies would be attacked by “nuclear terror bombing” next time. Even none “potential customers” attend this “nuke sale booth”, the seller will create one. At that time, the “suicide bomber” could never tell truth. Just like those 911 hijackers, London 7/7/2005 bombers, Madrid bombing perpetrators and Adam Lanza and his mother in Sandy Hook shooting, they were all arranged to be dead. Of course, the Feds could gave you evidence from “damaged hard disc” (in Sandy Hook shooting) and “self claimed Mastermind” confession from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (911 case).

    You can view the two news information I referred as a psychological opinion direction from the Feds- a justification for the coming terror attack.

    766. China is a member of fraud gang (4/6/2013)

    In this soap opera, N. Korea and US are the main actors playing war game show to the world audience. Another important actor is China. China is the major supporter of North Korea, without its aid, N. Korea couldn’t survive. So when China approved the resolution of U.N. to sanction on N. Korea, it causes big surprise. China used to veto any resolution in U.N. if it is anti the “friendship of China and N. Korea”.

    China voted for new North Korea sanctions. Will it enforce them?

    By Peter Ford, Staff Writer / March 8, 2013

    Beijing-When the UN Security Council imposed new and harsher sanctions on North Korea yesterday to punish it for its most recent nuclear test, one big part of the story was the fact that China had gone along with the resolution.

    China voted for new North Korea sanctions. Will it enforce them? (+video) - CSMonitor.com
    Don’t be blinded by this action of China. It’s only a stage performance – a gimmick to lure Iran to the hook. To show that N. Korea is really helpless. Even its long time ally has abandoned him. So North Korea is eagerly to sell his treasure – the atomic bomb, at a bargain price.

    One purpose of sanction is to inspect the cargo shipment by force. If Iran falls into the trap, it will be easy for US to intercept the “evidence”. The inspector could be China if necessary. He joins U.N. sanction. Bush’s “WMD” lie scandal won’t repeat in Obama's regime.

    China is a secret collaborator of US. The regime is famous for its corruption. It will do anything – if the bribe is big enough. The Feds is to create big events to distract a framed case. One big event is “terrorist nuke attack”, you have seen my revelation. The other one is a “natural disaster” – a pandemic of bird flu.

    Re: N Korea prepares for 'fourth nuclear test'

    they want :

    a. the world to coddle them and give Un back his access to luxury cars, as well as more aid for the people so that they don't end up revolting.

    and / or

    b. a preemptive strike.

    my guess is a.

    we should provide him with none of the above.

    Re: N Korea prepares for 'fourth nuclear test'

    I don't think anyone can really explain what is currently going on right now. I doubt this is entirely based on extracting services from the international community. My guess is that this has much more to do with internal politics than foreign relations.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    US officials made two secret visits to Pyongyang in 2012

    Former US officials confirmed the visit but the US government has neither denied nor confirmed it. The April trip was meant to prevent the launch of a long-distance rocket. North Korea went ahead anyway but the test failed. A similar successful test was carried out in December, showing North Korea had the capability of hitting Japan.

    The April trip was led by Joseph DeTrani, an expert on North Korea who then headed the National Counter Proliferation Centre in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which co-ordinates US intelligence agencies.
