Thanks for the thread, OP.
This is interesting at several levels.
The very fact that they have those maps on display and allowed the image to be released tells us quite a lot. Or at least, it should.
They are aware of how the MSM works in the west and also are aware that a fair percentage of the population who get their news only from the MSM
actually believe a lot of what it tells them, without even analysing it. You know what I mean. The "I saw it on Fox / CNN so it must be true" sort of

scared by such things. But the ones in the US and allied military who have to make decisions on battle plans and deployment of assets are not going to
be fooled by it. More than ever, they'll now be trying to figure out what NK's potential move might really
And I'll bet my bottom dollar that whatever it is, it won't be shown on any map that they'll publish for the international media to study and
