Over the last few weeks, you have been bombarded by news coverage of the brewing, looming crisis with North Korea. This potential military conflict between South Korea, North Korea, Japan, the United States, and most disturbingly China has the very real possibility of being the catastrophic Black Swan Event of the decade.
Just this past weekend on April 29, North Korea engaged in yet another defiant ballistic missile test. Although this one and the prior one from April 16th failed, the North Koreans are learning more with every attempt. Pyongyang’s astonishing arrogance in the face of international pressure is sobering. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gravely expressed what is at stake if the situation escalates any further in his United Nations special meeting warning:
“All options for responding to future provocations must remain on the table. Diplomatic and financial leverage or power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action, if necessary.”
You can be sure that the new administration means what it says when President Trump and his cabinet members and generals declare that they will not allow the pariah state of the Korean peninsula to become a nuclear power that possesses an intercontinental ballistic missile nuclear warhead delivery capability. Despite this fact, the North Korean regime is threatening to conduct their sixth nuclear test at any time. Consider what one high level North Korean official just said, “As long as America continues its hostile acts of aggression, we will never stop nuclear and missile tests.”
President Trump has consistently warned that he is not about to let North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un succeed in his stated goal of mastering the complex technology necessary to put a nuclear warhead atop an intercontinental missile that could reach American territory even as far away as the East Coast of the U.S. He reiterated this promise Sunday with, “We have a situation that we just cannot let — we cannot let what’s been going on for a long period of years continue.”
President Trump has continuously refused to rule out the threat of military action preemptively against North Korea and now has completed the movement of the USS Carl Vinson Aircraft Carrier Battle Strike Group to the Korean Peninsular waters. When reporters asked him for what his message on North Korea and possible military action against the rogue state was on his 100th day in office, he responded “You’ll soon find out, won’t you? You’ll soon find out.”
This is no laughing matter when you are talking about a rogue state regime that possesses over 1.2 million armed and fanatic soldiers backed by armored vehicles just across the border (and only 30 miles from the most densely populated in the world capital city of Seoul) from economic powerhouse South Korea.
Between their 20,000 artillery pieces, 4,000 artillery guns on rail, 400 missile and patrol boats, 70 submarines, 563 fighter and bomber aircraft, 1,000 short to medium range missiles, and 10 tested and working plutonium-based nuclear warheads, any sneak attack launched on South Korea and Japan would be absolutely devastating.
Is Your Retirement Portfolio Protected by Gold Against Possible Korean Peninsular Conflict?
The United States left the Korean Peninsula mess unfinished when the armistice that halted the Korean War began in 1953. Now nearly 65 years later, it appears the North Koreans are willing and ready to attempt reunifying the Korean Peninsula under their iron-fisted leadership. The difference between then and now is that today they have nearly a dozen highly destructive nuclear weapons ready to deploy.
