Opinion – North Korea fires missile over Japan in sharp escalation of tensions | The Japan Times – John Gelmini

Kim Jong Un will continue to test America and Donald Trump for as long as the latter remains in office or until the bluff is called.

What is perhaps required is a demonstration of the HAARP device, ideally focussed on causing a massive earthquake in the North Korean capital followed by floods of great power? Making the sea boil at a decent sized port, as happened with a demonstration to the Iranians a few years ago, might concentrate minds without triggering an attack on Seoul just 40 miles to the South of the North /South Korean border.

Dr Alf who has travelled extensively throughout the world and in the Far East, in particular, knows first hand the importance of “face” and how the perceived loss of it in the minds of the North Koreans and the mercurial Donald Trump could spiral out of control and lead to catastrophic events. North Korea does not want to feel bullied and in its position I would not give up my nuclear weapons based on the real life examples posed by the purported fate of Saddam Hussein, the brutal murder of Ghadaffi and what is happening in Iraq and Syria now.

The West should contain Kim Jong Un, shoot down all his missiles and give him a demonstration of brute power in the form of controlling the weather with HAARP.

Then we should work out where he is and where he seeks solace with his various mistresses.

America has fully cloaked craft and has had invisibility suits since 1974. We should then use this capability to terminate him with extreme prejudice, using special forces people equipped for the job with “Ironman suits” and silent weapons. His replacement (our henchman or woman) should be waiting in the wings ready to take over. American troops would not be in a unified Korea sitting on the Chinese border but would stay where they are, something China would prefer to a unified Korea.

Opinion – ‘Strong indications’ Trump won’t recertify Iran nuclear deal – CNBC – John Gelmini

Let me start by restating Dr Alf’s, namely:

What is not clear is how US decertification will be received by other parties to the agreement, namely Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the United Nations. Of course, there is also the reaction from Iran.

The answer depends on the toughness of the sanctions, how effective they are and whether Russia, China and others are successful in circumventing them. Then, of course, there is the possibility that Israel will want the sanctions toughened against the wishes of Russia and China. Donald Trump may, in the time that it takes to apply sanctions, find himself out of office which then means we are probably looking at President Pence and what he will do with Iran, given America’s need to keep selling arms to Saudi Arabia and keep Israel happy. If the sanctions are effective and damage the Iranian economy, Russia and China will see the precedent being set and will use their leverage which in China’s case is considerable, both in terms of controlling mineral wealth in Africa and their ownership of American debt.

In the end, Russia will be fundamental to reigning in Iran in Syria and Iraq and to helping prevent the rise of a new Ottoman Empire, so I predict an uneasy stalemate. ISIS is now in Afghanistan and operates globally, representing an even bigger long term threat than does Iran. Russia will be needed to contain this threat on their Southern border, China will do so on its borders and in those provinces where Uighurs live and the spirit of jihadism is being fanned by President Erdogan.

The situation is very complex and could easily lead to World War III, which is what the Neocons want, reasoning that they can escape to underground cities already built all across America and ultimately to Mars in future years.

One hopes that sanity prevails.
