North Korea: Detente or War?

The Korean War of the 1950’s saw North Korea, China and Russia against ‘everyone else’, it was the Communists vs the Nationalists.   The unit strength of the Communists dwarfed that of the Nationalists, military casualties vary from half a million to about 1 million with wounded well over 1.5 million.   Civilian deaths were over 2.5 million. It was brutal. What did it serve? It was a border war that ultimately gave South Korea freedom from the totalitarian rule that Kim Jong now covets.

Contrary to some mainstream reports that would have us believe that Kim Jong Un is an intellectual commander, he is more of a psychological narcissist .   More like a caricature from a James Bond movie, his education was rather a bleak barnacle… “having thousands of pounds lavished on his education at a top private school in Switzerland, he didn’t leave with even the equivalent of a single GCSE. When he was just 15 his father took him out of the costly International School Of Berne, where fees now run around £16,000 a year. He moved him to a nearby state school to save money but he was quickly put in the lower tier in class.”  

You see, Kim Jong Un wasn’t interested in war or being a leader, instead from a young age he was obsessed with Hollywood and preferred watching endless movies, pretending to act in a variety of roles for his classmates… while failing his classes. He left the Liebefeld-Steinholzi School near Berne without securing ANY exam results at all. His preference? Football, basketball – and porn.

Today the media is still weighted on Russia when the threat is North Korea. North Korea does not have the capacity to wreak worldly damage, but if it forced the hand of China, we would be in dire straits. Russia is no longer communist Soviet Union, and would most likely become an ally of the US as it has in every other war except the Korean War.

Right now the US is attempting to engage Russia’s help in defusing North Korea. The mindset that is important is “pride”. It is not about whether Pride is right or wrong, but how to deal with it in avoiding war. As long as the US makes threats, those threats have to be countered or Kim will appear weak to his people and lose the respect and fear that dominates his power if he doesn’t counter those threats. He is thus forced to respond with greater threats in order to maintain his ‘face’.

Sanctions too have proven to a worthless threat and serve only to enrage, not to diffuse.

Psychology tells us exactly how to act and react when confronted by a narcissist;   listen, offer praise, and diffuse defensiveness.   When attempting to create a diplomatic agreement; set boundaries thru compliments, focus on solutions, don’t threaten or challenge, and show them their benefit in the action.

While we are all narcissists by birth, we are not all narcissistic by disorder. Still, whether we are fighting a war, diffusing a war, or working on our own personal issues, these guidelines can be hugely beneficial (I personally stand convicted).

In the realm of North Korea, Putin and Xi seem to understand this delicate balance in dealing with Kim Jong Un, and I think that while the US wants to appear strong, sometimes strength is more visible in detante.

North Korea – Psychology of War

I’ve avoided the North Korea story for some time. But decided to enter into the fray from a somewhat ‘alternate’ perspective, much like all my perspectives.

US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, has joined the ranks of McCain in her assertion that retaliation and bombing ‘em will solve the problem.   If we look at the last 60 years, this mentality has repeatedly – failed and is pronouncement of a failed military intelligence.

Why?  Why have we repeatedly failed?

Multiple reasons, being too soft, not committing, affiliating with the wrong side, and the last agenda – saying one thing while actions speak an entirely different agenda or scenario, as in outright manipulation and lying.

North Korea’s, Kim Jong-un is no exception to the recent rule. We have taken a ‘one solution fits all’ scenario and every woman knows – that’s a bald face lie. Fashion has proven the lie over and over again…  I digress.

  1. Kim Jong Un flunked out of University, paid no attention to his studies and was instead obsessed with American Entertainment. Contrary to the media, he is not savvy, not intelligent, and not a military opponent. What he is – is a psyche. Like Hollywood, he craves attention, he thrives on a false reality, and he wants to be hailed as someone unique and special despite his short-comings.
  2. Instead of addressing this ‘psyche’ we have chosen a one size fits all agenda of either – sanctions or war.  Personally, I’m sick of both.

Kim wants the world to notice him. And if that means creating chaos, his psyche is willing to crumble to that level of narcissistic need. If he were a great leader, if he were truly a gifted, intelligent man, his country would be flourishing, his people would be wealthy, his wealth would be shared, and prominent businessmen would have made their mark in the world of industry, business and finance.

But that hasn’t happened.

He doesn’t want to die. But he wants to fell impenetrable. He wants to feel like he is on the playing board of world politics. He wants to feel important. And this is only way he knows how to achieve that result.

By threatening him with war, missiles, sanctions, destruction, we have failed to address the psychology of the man, and instead have embraced a slovenly, disassociated, inept solution. “When in doubt, bomb ‘em to annihilation”. Think – McCain.

Nikki Haley has joined the McCain ranks. And in so doing has exposed herself as either incapable, or an ally of the McCain/Soros cabal.

In fact, all Kim Jong Un wants is to feel counted, important, and a part of world discussions. We have absolutely nothing to lose in so doing – except maybe some pride. WWI was initiated because of ‘pride’. WWI took 15 million lives and countless million wounded, because a lone assailant took the life of one Archduke Ferdinand of Austria. One man died, and as a result 15 million were sacrificed. That is ‘Pride” at it’s height.

When Trump is willing to open dialogue, I imagine that is really what Kim Jong Un wants more than anything – recognition. Maybe he’s a dictator. Maybe he is heinous. Maybe Assad is heinous? I don’t know. But I don’t want to sacrifice my boys to find out.

Let Russia deal with Syria, let China deal with North Korea, let Venezuela deal with it’s own. We don’t need their oil. We don’t need their debt.   Kim doesn’t want to really bomb anyone, he just wants to ‘appear fearsome’ because he believes that ‘appearance’ will gain him a seat in the world order and countries around the world will thus respect him.

Just look how well our tactic worked in Syria. Perhaps the US wasn’t participating in the bombing so much, but we did use our sub-contractors to excess, including; Saudi Arabia, UAE, Turkey, Al Qaeda and ISIS. And they succeeded in the plan – to annihilate an entire country, create an immigration crisis, and destabilize the world in a manipulated chaos.

Setting our sites on North Korea, we only change the landscape, the result will be the same – if not worse.

Are these enemies real, or are they illusions in order to divert the truth and allow the wolf to devour the entire herd of sheep?

Making Kim Jong Un ‘feel’ powerful is wholly different than him ‘being’ powerful. And if our military Generals are really that weak minded, then maybe we need to find ones who actually ‘get it’ and have more than a tin-man brain. Because utilizing the same failed medications, sanctions, and war, is a lot like our pharma industry that believes that a pill with twenty side effects worse than the disease, is a cure.

War with North Korea is like treating cancer with Advil.  It ain’t going’ to make the world a better place – it will simply make it less populated and our resources, food and livelihood – much like Syria…  Is that what you want?
