While the world seems preoccupied with events unfolding in the middle east a potentially greater threat is beginning to take shape in the form of a new or heightened
relationship between North Korea and Iran with the tensions at already high levels over North Koreas last missile test. It seems that the resolve of the U.N. will be tested at even greater lengthens by countries seeking nuclear arms. The big question is whether the U.S. will stand firm in it's stand against North Korea and Iran or seek a path of tougher resistance.
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea has been working closely with Iran to develop its long-range ballistic missiles, possibly using Chinese technology, and is building large bases to prepare for their deployment, a South Korean state-run think tank said.

Communist North Korea is also building new sites near the Demilitarized Zone border for short-range missiles and is deploying missiles with improved precision that can strike most of Japan, the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security (IFANS) said in a report.

"The development of Taepodong-2 is conducted jointly with Iran, and it is possible China's technology is used in the development of the Taepodong-2 engine," said the IFANS report, which Reuters obtained on Thursday.

The collaboration is part of an international network, including Pakistan, that made it possible for the impoverished North to develop and deploy missiles despite scarce resources and limited testing, the study said.

North Korea fired seven missiles on July 5, including the long-range Taepodong-2, which U.S. officials said failed seconds into its flight and fell into waters between Japan and the Korean peninsula.

Christopher Hill, the top U.S. envoy to talks on the North's nuclear program, said last month one or more Iranians watched the North's missile launch, deepening concerns about the ties between two countries with troubling nuclear capabilities.

Some say that the North Koreans don't have a solid enough technical base to develop long range intercontinental ballistic missiles, but with the help of technologies from china we could possibly see a change in the quality of their weapons.

It's no secret that Iran would jump at the chance to further it's technical abilities where weapons are concerned, The question is how much has been done without U.S. knowledge by china to help Iran in it's quest to develop better weapons?

I say let them have their weapons. So long as we do not try and pre-empt them, they will sit idle and suck out funding from their coffers for decades.

I doubt it.

Here's what I see happening within the next few years...

The attacks on Iraq, and the future attacks on Iran and/or Syria, will trigger the entire Middle East into fiery inferno, as it pretty much already has.

Once the United States is firmly entrenched into the Middle East with the majority of its Armed Forces, North Korea will to attack South Korea, as it has been posturing to do so.

Then, with America's forces stretched well beyond the limit, China will invade Taiwan and possibly Japan.

This will usher in the start of World War Three.

And for those that read the bible, you'll find that this follows Revelation 17:12-17.

For those who follow Nostradamus, he said that WWIII would start "Seven and fifty years" after WWII, which the invasion of Iraq stared in 2003, which is 57 years, 6 months and 18 days after the end of WWII.

And for those that follow the Illuminati, or the Neo-Cons, you'll find that that this follows their "plan" as well.

Elderban, I think that your senario could be the way it happens, it sounds pluasible anyway, people think that just because china is so entrenched in trade with the U.S. that they would not think of upsetting the balance will be shocked when it happens....

The thing of it is that if China stopped shipping stuff to us, it would hurt us more than it would them. Think of all of the things that are sold in the US that are made in China. Prices at Wal-Marts, Targets, and other stores like them would skyrocket!

Not one single VCR or DVD player is made in the US, most of the memory in the computer you use to access the internet is made in China, even the COMPUTER you are using that has the memory in it was probably made in China as well.

Heck, if you think about it, China has us, as the saying goes, "by the balls".

Not to mention China finances 33%, if not more, of the US Deficit.

So, if China were to invade and take over Japan, they would then become the #1 country in the world, and with a flick of a pen, the United States would become a third world country. And China wouldn't have to even launch an attack on the United States to make it happen either.
