I think that is the thing no one, even media, wants to openly speculate about. Yeah. North Korea and Iran have cooperated extensively. I got a ton of
stuff on that while making my recent 3pt Korea series but it wouldn't have fit there without being absurdly drifting around topics.
It's disturbing because it IS what makes Kim's behavior logical. If he drew short straw to be the guy to take the U.S.'s first direct focus as a
distraction or split of forces we literally can't afford to split anymore, then we're about to get one of those surprises they write a chapter in war
history books about. Not a pleasant one, by any means.
The thing that makes it remotely plausible is that Obama is, very generally speaking, a weak foreign policy President. He goes along to get along and
the US hasn't had one do that since 1979. It's not about how we see Obama but how everyone else does. Some may think this is their best and perhaps
only shot to make that kind of move.
What we don't know from either country is what do they have up their sleeve. One is very, very good at keeping secrets and the other is werry, werry,
good as well.
I have no idea what is up there sleeve if in fact anything is apart from their arm. Let us just pretend that their brightest scientists did come up
with ..... say a mach 8 coil gun with self directed ammunition using China's GPS system for guidance control. (without China's consent wink wink,
Something like this would be a complete surprise to the West and no one could point the finger at China or Russia because these two would just shake
their heads while laughing behind their hands. Well, Russia would, the Chinese would laugh internally like the inscrutable people that they are.
It does not have to be a coil gun or a rail gun. It just has to be anti air and able to reach as high as any aircraft can fly. Remember back when
the US lost its first U2 to a backwards USSR that could not possibly have a missile that could shoot one of those babies down, could they.
The moment that NK can have some control over her airspace, she will attack and Iran and hell, anyone that wants to join in will join in and av a go
It could be a rail gun, a laser system, a new missile anything that provides a reasonable air defense capability and they may just start something.
You better hope it is not a rail gun, the US Carriers would be very vulnerable. Not so much laser tech. You could fire the most powerful laser on
the earth at a Carrier and it would just blister the paint. Of course Kim might think it fun to write his name on the side of a Carrier, "Kim was
here" would be good, but then he could photoshop that with less trouble.
No so funny if it was a particle beam weapon especially if they managed to steal the plans for one of those or if some other countries scientist
suddenly gets very rich. These countries can make anything given the plans, even if they can't engineer it themselves. They can certainly smuggle
circuit boards over China's borders.
