There are a lot of things this could be about, that we’re simply unable to see given our limitations. It is likely that the blockade by the Navy to
search all ships for WMD is seen by North Korea as a declaration of war (because technically it is). My guess is that North Korea already has enough
fissile material to construct at least one more device (if it isn’t already constructed and awaiting deployment). The incoming material they seem
to be looking for may not actually be incoming at all, in which case they are boarding all of these vessels as an intimidation tactic.
When it comes to these shipments, I know our government uses satellites to track all vessels inbound and outbound in the region. They know where they
came from and they know where they are going well before they ever get there. Ships can only travel so fast, after all. If North Korea is shipping
weapons, we know where they are going because we follow them (you don’t think all of those satellite techs spend all their time peaking through
bedroom windows from 300 miles up do you?).
There are a lot of things this could be. This could be North Korea during the opening days of it’s “last hooray”. It could be North Korea
deliberately providing a distraction for something else going on. This could be another one of Kim Jong-Il’s bluffs. This could be many things.
Knowing that, what do we know for certain?
1. We know that North Korea has constructed all on it’s own, and detonated two nuclear devices. This has been confirmed.
2. We know that Japan is significantly nervous about the rocket launches that have been occurring, to include the last satellite test (and don’t
think for a second that there wasn’t a US sub out there retrieving that wreckage the second it hit bottom to see what it really was).
3. We know that foreign governments are looking to test President Obama, and everyone is watching how he handles this.
4. We know that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is currently in China for climate talks (most likely as a decoy for other talks).
Keep in mind this is taking into account that I’m specifically avoiding tying this to any possible collusion between North Korea and Iran.
There’s no solid evidence that I’ve seen to indicate it’s going on. But it might be.
I have a sinking feeling that June is going to be a rough month if the information in that OP link is factual.
