If I were president………….

I would be very clear, not “clear” like Mr. Let Me Be Clear While I Lie Through My Teeth To You, but truly clear, especially to other nations.

To North Korea I would say, this. The next threat you issue towards us, or our allies will be taken seriously, and will result in your country losing a major military installation of our choosing. A second threat will result in, well, you might not want to even think about that.

To Hamid Karzai I would say. We are leaving, you are on your own, you will not place our military at a disadvantage with moronic rules of engagement that favor terrorists. 

To Mexico I would say simply that we are going to seal our border and control who enters. Any group caught smuggling drugs into America will be found and eradicated by any means within our power to bring to bear. Also those drug cartels, which pose, in my view, a threat to Americans living in border states, will be dealt with by YOU, or I will confer with my military leaders and discern the most effective way to eradicate that vermin. And we will do so, and you will stay the Hell out-of-the-way.

To Iran a simple note would suffice. If you continue pursuing nuclear weapons, and thus posing a grave threat to us and our allies, I will not only support Israel in taking your capability out, but the United States military will be taking full part.

To China just this. Dear Chicoms, we will fly our fucking planes where we want WHEN we want, end of discussion! Oh, and about Taiwan, and Japan, do not even think about it.

Finally to the UN just a few words. Get you building the Hell out of America, YESTERDAY!

 

Your Daley Gator Iranian Nuclear Nightmare Update

Iran Deal: Myths Vs. Facts – Big Peace

According to the wisest members of the left, including President Obama, the new deal with Iran will stifle Iran’s nuclear program. President Obama pledged, in his Saturday night address to the nation, that “we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program,” and added that “key parts of the program will be rolled back.” On Monday, Obama told a crowd in San Francisco, “We cannot rule out peaceful solutions to the world’s problems. We cannot commit ourselves to an endless cycle of conflict.”

.

The deal is, according to The New York Times, a no-brainer: “no one can seriously argue that it doesn’t make the world safer.”

The problem is this: the deal that the Obama administration and its allies in the press are presenting to the world is a mythical one. Here, then, are the major deal points, and the flaws in them:

“The goal for these negotiations is to reach a mutually-agreed long-term comprehensive solution that would ensure Iranˈs nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful.”

Myth: The agreement is a step forward in that it bars Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Fact: The agreement explicitly allows Iran to develop nuclear capabilities in violation of United Nations resolutions, giving Iran the leeway to lie about its use of fissile material.

“From the existing uranium enriched to 20%, retain half as working stock of 20% oxide for fabrication of fuel for the TRR. Dilute the remaining 20% UF6 to no more than 5%. No reconversion line.”

Myth: This rolls back the existing Iranian nuclear weapons program to a significant degree.

Fact: The difference between 20% enrichment and 5% enrichment is relatively minute. There is no verification mechanism to ensure that the watered-down stuff is not reconverted.

“Iran announces that it will not enrich uranium over 5% for the duration of the 6 months. Iran announces that it will not make any further advances of its activities at the Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant (1), Fordow (2), or the Arak reactor (3), designated by the IAEA as IR-40.”

Myth: This significantly hampers Iran’s nuclear development capabilities.

Fact: Not only does the agreement’s verification provide only weak checks on facilities the west knows about, it completely ignores the Parchin facility near Tehran.

“Provision of specified information to the IAEA, including information on Iranˈs plans for nuclear facilities, a description of each building on each nuclear site, a description of the scale of operations for each location engaged in specified nuclear activities, information on uranium mines and mills, and information on source material. This information would be provided within three months of the adoption of these measures.”

Myth: This gives the west brand new information about Iranian nuclear facilities.

Fact: This gives the Iranians three months to fabricate information about their nuclear facilities.

“Daily IAEA inspector access when inspectors are not present for the purpose of Design Information Verification, Interim Inventory Verification, Physical Inventory Verification, and unannounced inspections, for the purpose of access to offline surveillance records, at Fordow and Natanz.”

Myth: This is serious surveillance.

Fact: This is deeply unserious surveillance. Inspectors may not show up unnaounced to check out design information, physical inventory, or interim inventory. Unannounced inspections are only allowed under the agreement “for the purpose of access to offline surveillance records” at two of the nuclear reactors, but not at Arak or Parchin at all. The most important type of nuclear verification is monitored by the Iranian government, including “managed access” to centrifuge assembly, uranium mines and mills, and centrifuge rotor production workshops and storage facilities. In other words, all the important information gets filtered by the Iranian government.

The rest of the agreement constitutes goodies the west will give to Iran, including “No new nuclear-related UN Security Council sanctions,” “No new EU nuclear-related sanctions,” and suspension of US and EU sanctions on “gold and precious metals,” as well as Iranian petrochemical exports.

There are multiple other problems with the Iran deal text, including the fact that Iran is allowed to continue centrifuge production, supposedly to “replace damaged machines” – but, as mentioned, inspection of centrifuges is monitored by the Iranian government under “managed access.” So Iran’s centrifuge production can continue wholesale under the guise of replacing damaged materials no one can inspect.

It is no wonder the Iranian government is so thrilled with this deal. They gave up virtually nothing, and gained six months during which Israel is completely isolated internationally – a period during which they can speed along their path toward a nuclear weapon. And anyone who thinks President Obama is humble enough to declare this deal a failure in six months, no matter how much of a failure it is, has never seen this egotistical Commander-in-Chief in action.

Charles Krauthammer Absolutely Destroys Iran Nuke Deal: ‘It’s The Worst Deal Since Munich’ – Downtrend

Charles Krauthammer made his usual appearance on the Special Report All-Star Panel last night to discuss the deal concerning Iran’s nuclear program. He pulled no punches in his criticism of the agreement.

“It’s really hard to watch the President and the Secretary of State and not think how they cannot be embarrassed by this deal,” he said.

Krauthammer went on to say that the U.N. Security Council, on no less than six occasions, has passed resolutions stating that Iran stop all enrichment otherwise there would be no change in the sanctions. That means that China and Russia, both countries on the Security Council, agreed to stick with sanctions against the regime.

But now, he said, the U.S. has basically capitulated on the issue of sanctions and granted Iran permission to continue with enrichment.

“What do we get in return?” Krauthammer asked. “I just heard the Secretary of State say we’re going to get a destruction of the 20% uranium. That is simply untrue. What’s going to happen is the 20% enriched uranium is going to be turned into an oxide so it’s inoperable. That process is completely chemically reversible which means Iran holds on to its 20% uranium and can turn it into active stuff any time it wants. This is a shame from beginning to end. It’s the worst deal since Munich.”

AP Buried Story Of Secret US-Iranian Talks For 8 Months – Truth Revolt

Hidden in its reports about the P5+1 deal with Iran was AP’s revelation that it learned about secret talks between the United States and Iran back in March but didn’t report them until eight months later, when the deal was signed on Saturday evening:

The AP was tipped to the first U.S.-Iranian meeting in March shortly after it occurred, but the White House and State Department disputed elements of the account and the AP could not confirm the meeting. The AP learned of further indications of secret diplomacy in the fall and pressed the White House and other officials further. As the Geneva talks between the P5+1 and Iran appeared to be reaching their conclusion, senior administration officials confirmed to the AP the details of the extensive outreach. They spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss by name the secret talks.

Words are important, especially in journalism. Notice the article says “the White House and State Department disputed elements of the account.” It does not say they disputed the story itself. The AP also states it “learned of further indications of secret diplomacy in the fall.” Nowhere in the report does it say the administration asked them to keep things secret.

This begs the question, why didn’t the Associated Press publish the story in the spring without the disputed details? If the reporters weren’t comfortable with the information they had, why then did they keep the news to themselves when they discovered new information about the talks in the fall?

In the context of its history of liberal bias, the behavior of the AP in sitting on this story also raises the question: If the President whose administration was having secret talks with Iran were a Republican, would they have sat on the story?

Iran, North Korea Secretly Developing New Long-Range Rocket Booster For ICBMs – Washington Free Beacon

Iranian missile technicians secretly visited North Korea as part of joint development of a new rocket booster for long-range missiles or space launchers at the same time nuclear talks took place in Geneva, according to U.S. officials.

Several groups of technicians from the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group (SHIG), a unit in charge of building Iran’s liquid-fueled missiles, traveled to Pyongyang during the past several months, including as recently as late October, to work on the new, 80-ton rocket booster being developed by the North Koreans, according to officials familiar with intelligence reports.

The booster is believed by U.S. intelligence agencies to be intended for a new long-range missile or space launch vehicle that could be used to carry nuclear warheads, and could be exported to Iran in the future.

Recent U.S. intelligence assessments have said that both North Korea and Iran are expected to have missiles capable of hitting the United States with a nuclear warhead in the next two years.

The Iranian cooperation reveals that the nuclear framework agreement concluded Sunday in Geneva has not slowed Tehran’s drive for missiles that can deliver a nuclear warhead to intercontinental range.

One official described the new booster as a thruster for a “super ICBM” or a heavy-lift space launcher.

“It is completely new from what they have done so far,” the official said.

The official said the missile cooperation was disseminated in multiple intelligence reports over the past several months. The official suggested the reports were suppressed within the government by the Obama administration to avoid upsetting the talks in Geneva.

“Why does the administration want so much to negotiate a nuclear agreement with Iran if they know full well that that country is building nuclear delivery vehicles?” the official asked.

State Department and White House National Security Council spokeswomen had no immediate comment. A Defense Intelligence Agency spokeswoman declined to comment.

Additional intelligence reports based on satellite imagery reveal that North Korea is developing a larger missile or space launcher than its previously known rockets. The indications include a launch tower at one facility that is substantially taller than other known towers spotted at North Korean launch sites.

The blog 38 North, part of the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, disclosed last month that satellite photos showed a expansion at a North Korean launch site for a larger rocket.

Both North Korea and Iran are believed to be hiding their long-range missile programs, part of space-launcher development, as a way to avoid international sanctions.

Meanwhile, the State Department’s special envoy for North Korean nuclear affairs Glyn Davies said in Tokyo on Monday that Pyongyang could be hit with additional sanctions if the regime fails to show a willingness to give up its arms program.

“If we do not see signs of North Korean sincerity, if they do not act, demonstrate that they understand they must fulfill their obligations, give up their nuclear weapons, then there’s more pressure that will be brought to bear on them,” Davies told reporters, Kyodo reported.

The reports of a new North Korean rocket booster coincide with the emergence of a key official within the North Korean regime last September. The official, Pak To Chun, surfaced in public after a mysterious four-month absence from the public eye. Pak is a member of the powerful National Defense Commission and a key official in charge of North Korea’s long-range missile and space launcher programs.

North Korea and Iran announced plans to develop closer relations, including defense, science and technology ties, in September 2012 when Kim Yong Nam, a senior North Korean official, visited Tehran. Kim met with Iran’s supreme leader Sayed Ali Khameni. Both sides said at the time that they would cooperate against the United States.

The Iranian company SHIG, part of the Aerospace Industries Organization of Iran, has developed all of Iran’s liquid-fueled missiles, including the Shahab series that is based on North Korea’s Nodong medium-range missiles. The company was sanctioned by the United Nations for its role in illicit missile transfers in 2006. The U.S. government has also sanctioned it for illicit missile exports.

SHIG experts were known to have visited North Korea previously in 2009 to take part in a missile test launch that year of a Taepodong-2 (TD-2) missile.

A report published in July by the National Air and Space Intelligence Center stated North Korea is continuing to build TD-2 long-range missiles and space launchers.

“Continued efforts to develop the TD-2 and the newly unveiled [mobile] ICBM show the determination of North Korea to achieve long-range ballistic missile and space launch capabilities,” the report said.

The report also said Iran has carried out several launches of a two-stage Safir space launch vehicle and in 2010 unveiled a new larger launcher called the Simorgh.

“Iran will likely continue to pursue longer range ballistic missiles and more capable [space-launch vehicle], which could lead to the development of an ICBM system,” the report said, noting that “Iran could develop and test an ICBM capable of reaching the United States by 2015.”

Disclosure of the Iran-North Korean missile cooperation could upset China’s efforts to restart the stalled six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear program.

The United States and South Korea are opposing a resumption of the nuclear talks until North Korea demonstrates that it is willing to dismantle its nuclear facilities.

A State Department cable from 2009 made public by Wikileaks stated that North Korea’s Amroggang Development Bank worked with the Korea Mining Development Corporation (KOMID) in the past in selling missiles and technology to SHIG.

Another cable on Iran’s Ballistic Missile program from 2009 states that “Iran has the largest and most active missile program in the Middle East.”

“Iran has accelerated its work toward developing a domestic space program,” the report said.

The Safir space launcher “has demonstrated several capabilities necessary for longer-range ballistic missiles: staging, clustered engines in the second stage (although these were small), and gimbaled engines for control of the second stage, a more advanced technique than the jet vanes used in the first stage,” the report said.

“Iran currently appears focused on increasing the capability and range of its ballistic missiles,” the report said. “Although Iran is unlikely to deploy the Safir SLV as a ballistic missile, the Safir, and the development and test of the two-stage Sajjil [medium-range ballistic missile], has provided Iran with much of the technology and experience necessary to develop and produce longer-range ballistic missiles, including ICBMs.”

“Tehran could attempt to develop and test much of this technology under the guise of an SLV program.”

Remember the promises of Communism are sweet, the realities evil

90 Miles From Tyranny takes us to one of the places where Communism showed its evil head, Cambodia. Amazingly, despite the lessons of Cambodia, China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, East  Germany, and many other “Communist Utopia’s” so many on the Left still say Communism just has not been implemented correctly. So many on the Left refuse to grasp that many of the ideals they embrace are Communist in nature. They refuse to see that embracing Communism in any form is like knocking down that  first domino. What is that they say about those who forget history? Yeah, you know the rest

This organization is remembered especially for orchestrating a Genocide, which resulted from the enforcement of its social engineering policies. Can You guess? No, It is not the Obama genocides (not yet anyways), it’s our cute commie friends the Khmer Rouge or Red Khmers.  The Khmer Rouge wanted to eliminate anyone suspected of “involvement in free-market activities.” Suspected capitalists encompassed professionals and almost everyone with an education.  Now who would want lots of people with poor education?  Oh, that’s right, Democrats.

The Khmer Rouge believed that parents were tainted with capitalism, so they separated children from their parents and indoctrinated them in communism.  And That would be happening now in where?  You got it, common core classrooms, in the good ole USSA.

The post is long, but you should read it, and if possible, get a Liberal friend to read it. Here is a bit Mike Miles linked from another blog

We are not the first to arrive here, and at first I cringe at the bus loads of well-fed tourists mulling about with their headsets on. They are listening to an audio-tour, no different than a day out at an art museum and the contrast to the starvation and suffering on these grounds 30 years ago was too much to handle for me.  But within a few minutes of listening in, I realize how important it is for people to come here and learn about the genocide unleashed on Cambodia by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.

In school, we learn about Nazi Germany under the pretext that genocide must never happen again, yet no mention was made of Cambodia, where the Khmer Rouge killed anyone who was educated or spoke foreign languages, while others were forced to work in labor camps. Over 25% of the population, or 2 million people, were killed from 1975-1979, in order to create the all-agrarian society Pol Pot believed was necessary in order to free Cambodia and make it independent of outside influence.
Visualizing how the ground bubbled up as gasses from the 20,000 buried bodies were released. Seeing the clothes that had rotted off the victims still scattered on the ground, partially exposed by wind and rain. Standing in front of the Killing Tree, against which Khmer Rouge soldiers bashed babies and their mothers like sacks of potatoes until they died; the price of bullets too precious to waste.
Stop 18, the last stop on the walking tour, brings you to the massive pagoda, the center point of what is now a memorial park. Over 9,000 skulls are piled inside this 17-storey structure, along with bones and more piles of clothing. Witnessing this makes the scale of the killing truly tangible. As at other points of the tour, I am immediately sick; nausea mixes with a piercing pain in my temples and an angry fire in my heart and my stomach too hard to explain.
We learn at our next stop, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, that of the 20,000 people who were tortured at this former prison, only seven people survived. Around the country there was a much higher rate of survival, but here at S-21, just stepping through the doors meant sentencing to months of torture before eventual death.
Before we stepped through the doors, however, we were confronted by a legless blind man begging for money outside. I decide he is, no doubt, a victim of the regime, who now spends his days outside one of the darkest locations in Cambodia’s history.
Passing through the doors, thousands of fearful eyes stare back at us, in the form of black and white photographs. Head shots of every single man, woman and child brought to this detention center were taken, methodically documented their arrival. I stare at photograph after photograph choking back tears, knowing that if I let one fall, I won’t be able to stop.
I worked with a girl a few years ago who was Cambodian, her name was Sineath, she was beautiful, and very sweet. If I had been 15  or 20 years younger, I might have fallen in love with her. Her parents came to the US before she was born, but she knew the history of Cambodia. So I did some research into Cambodia, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. It was heartbreaking, especially those pictures they spoke about. The bastards in the Khmer Rouge kept detailed records of their evil atrocities, and the worst, by far were the pictures. Especially those pictures of children, all slaughtered in the name of the foundation of Communism, the common good.
I write a lot about Individualism and Collectivism. Cambodia is a glaring example of where Collectivism leads. Such horrific suffering and evil is the natural end to Collectivism because Collectivism seeks to eradicate every last vestige of individual liberty. Once those liberties are sacrificed upon the altar of the common good, well, let tens of million Russians, Chinese, Cambodians, North Koreans, Cubans, and Eastern Europeans answer that.

 

The promises of Communism are sweet, the realities are bitter and deadly

There has never been, and will never be a greater evil than Marxism and its bastard offspring, Leninism, Maoism, and Stalinism among others. For those who doubt, a study of history is on order. Mao killed over 60 million Chinese, Stalin’s death toll in the USSR is in the tens of millions, the killing fields of Cambodia, I could go on, but you could also consider much more recent events in the Stalinist Hell that is North Korea.

The atrocities in North Korea reached another peak on November 3, as roughly 80 people were publicly executed in seven different cities for crimes such as watching films made in South Korea, dealing in pornography or possessing a Bible.

The executions were the first mass executions of the Kim Jong-un regime, according to JoongAng Ilbo. Approximately 10 people were murdered in the cities of Pyongsong in South Pyongan, Wonsan in Kangwon Province, Chongjin in North Hamgyong Province, and Sariwon in North Hwanghae Province.

Wonsan’s executions were carried out by binding a group of people to stakes, putting white sacks over their heads and blasting them to pieces with a machine gun in front of thousands of witnesses at a stadium, among whom were many children. Families of the executed victims were sent to prison camps along with the victim’s accomplices.

Many of the victims were condemned for some connection to South Korea, such as watching their films. Others were condemned for sexual corruption. There were reports from South Korea that Kim Jong-un ‘s wife Ri Sol-ju, who used to sing in the state-run Unhasu Orchestra, may have participated with orchestra members in being filmed having sex and selling the films as pornography, a crime which resulted in the execution of 9 orchestra members in September. Unhasu members reportedly told North Korean officials, “Ri Sol-ju also loved to play like us.”

As I said, Communism, in all its forms is or eventually leads to brutality, torture, and murder by the State. Yet, there are many who are still seduced by the promises of Communism. They have either never learned or forgotten history. Whatever the case, they ignore a basic truth of life. Communism requires that we surrender our individualism, including our individual liberties, for the “common good”. But once liberty is surrendered, the State becomes an all-powerful and fearful master, and we become nothing more than a number. A number that can easily be erased by the State. Never forget this my friends.

 

Obama Regime Continues To Ignore Beijing’s Illegal Transfer Of ICBM Launchers To North Korea

Obama Administration Continues To Ignore Beijing’s Illegal Transfer Of ICBM Launchers To N Korea – Washington Free beacon

The Obama administration is ignoring China’s transfer of mobile nuclear missile launchers to North Korea as Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday applauded China for announcing new export controls on Pyongyang’s arms programs.

.

Six Chinese transporter-erector launchers (TELs) were sold to North Korea in 2011 and were first revealed carrying new intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) during a Pyongyang military parade in April 2012.

The launchers are now part of North Korea’s newest and most-lethal road-mobile nuclear KN-08 missiles, which are capable of hitting parts of the western United States.

In addition to United Nations sanctions against North Korea, the missile launcher transfers violated the 2000 Iran, North Korea, Syria Nonproliferation Act passed by Congress requiring sanctions to be imposed on states that supply goods restricted for export under the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) to Iran, North Korea, or Syria. The MTCR prohibition covers missile delivery systems.

Rick Fisher, a specialist on China’s military forces, said both the U.S. and Japanese governments have known about the Chinese government’s role in supplying the KN-08 missile launchers to North Korea for years.

“Yet, nearly two years after the transfer of these TELs, the administration has not issued one sanction against a Chinese company or made one public protest to China,” said Fisher, a senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center.

A State Department official told reporters that Kerry met on Thursday in New York with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi. The two officials discussed China’s announcement this week that it has adopted new export controls designed to curb North Korea’s nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction programs.

“The secretary acknowledged the importance of the step China has recently taken to issue an export control list, and they discussed both the significance of that particular step symbolically and practically as well as other steps that are within the power of China and others to take that would push in the same direction,” the senior official said of the breakfast meeting in New York between Kerry and Wang.

The official said Kerry and Wang did not discuss details of the implementation of the new controls. However, “there was an exchange between Secretary Kerry and Foreign Minister Wang on additional steps that potentially China could take,” the official said, without providing details.

A State Department spokeswoman had no immediate comment when asked whether Kerry discussed the ICBM launcher transfers and why no action has been taken to punish China for the sales.

A spokesman for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which oversees the State Department, had no immediate comment. A House Foreign Affairs Committee spokesman did not respond to an email request for comment.

China’s Ministry of Commerce on Tuesday issued a list of dual-use, civilian-military items now banned for export to North Korea amid concerns the items could assist North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction programs.

It includes equipment and technology that could be used to make missiles and nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.

The 236-page list does not include vehicles that could be used with mobile missiles.

The release of the list was viewed by many analysts as an indication Beijing is giving in to international pressure to abide by U.N. sanctions imposed on North Korea for its recent nuclear and missile tests.

China for decades has been a major supplier of technology and military-related goods for North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, U.S. intelligence officials have said.

The ICBM launcher transfer is viewed as one of the most militarily significant arms proliferation activities in recent years, comparable to China’s supplying Pakistan with nuclear weapons designs and technology in the 1980s.

Pentagon officials said the sudden emergence of the KN-08 missile atop the Chinese launchers led to a major Joint Staff reassessment of missile threats to the United States that was carried out earlier this year.

That assessment in turn prompted a major shift in U.S. strategic defenses. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced in March that the Pentagon would add 14 long-range missile defense interceptors to the missile defense base in Fort Greely, Alaska. The new interceptors are being added in direct response to the North Korean mobile ICBM threat, officials said.

A U.N. panel of experts who examined North Korean sanctions implementation revealed in a June report that Chinese officials had admitted to providing the six off-road vehicles that Beijing asserted were illegally converted to ICBM launchers.

U.S. officials discounted the Chinese explanation and asserted that China has a long-time covert relationship with North Korea in supplying missile technology going back three decades.

A CIA-drafted report to Congress on arms proliferation published in February said North Korea continues to procure missile-related goods from foreign sources. China also is a major arms proliferator and continues to engage in weapons of mass destruction-related activities, including missile transfers to “states of concern,” the CIA report said.

The U.N. report said a panel of experts “considers it most likely that [North Korea] deliberately breached the end-user guarantee that it officially provided to [China’s] Wuhan and converted the WS51200 trucks into transporter-erector launchers.” The report was dated June 11.

China told the world body that the missile launchers were sold as “lumber transporters” despite being manufactured by China’s Hubei Sanjiang Space Wanshan Special Vehicle Co.

The U.N. analysis stated that the launchers’ “fronts and sides, the fenders, the exhaust systems, fuel tanks and tires of the vehicles seen on parade exactly matched those of the WS51200 series advertised by Wanshan.”

The report also said the vehicles were built by the Ninth Academy of the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp., the Chinese military’s primary manufacturer of mobile-missiles.

Fisher said the new Chinese list of controlled exports to North Korea was alarming, considering that the weapons of mass destruction products on it are only now being restricted.

The list of goods is “all you need to get into the nuclear and biological weapons business,” he said.

“It’s all well and good for Secretary Kerry to acknowledge the ‘symbolic and practical’ value of China’s new list of banned items for sale to North Korea, but it has to be said: This list is 24 years too late,” Fisher told the Washington Free Beacon.

Fisher said the list makes no mention of vehicles that can carry or transport nuclear weapons, including the KN-08 missile launchers transferred from China to North Korea in late 2011.

“North Korea is making nuclear weapons, the missiles to carry these nuclear weapons and is believed to have one of the world’s largest stockpiles of chemical and perhaps biological weapons,” he said.

“North Korea has likely obtained all the items on China’s list that it needs to make nuclear armed missiles, so China has in effect achieved its goal.”

Fisher said through both direct and indirect means in the past 20 years China has enabled North Korea to become a direct nuclear missile threat to the United States.

“Beijing expects this will vastly increase its leverage over Washington and Tokyo, not to mention Seoul,” he said.

Vice Adm. James D. Syring, director of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, said North Korea’s KN-08 missiles are one reason the United States is shifting its focus from European missile defenses to protection of the continental United States.

According to slides used by the admiral during a speech to a missile defense conference in Alabama last month, U.S. missile defenses are being reoriented due to “the emergence of North Korean road mobile ICBM[s].”

Iran also will have the capability of flight-testing a long-range missile in two years, he said, noting the plan to deploy 14 additional Ground-Based Interceptors in Alaska.

“We are taking these steps to stay ahead of the challenge posed by Iran and North Korea’s development of longer-range ballistic missile capabilities,” Syring noted in one of the slides.

Rand Report: North Korea Headed For Near Certain Collapse

North Korea Collapse “Imminent” – Downtrend

According to a new report by the Rand Corporation, collapse in North Korea is not a question of if, but when.

.

The situation under current leader Kim Jong-un hsd become more desperate and unstable, accelerating timetables for complete economic and social ruin in one of the last remaining communist-dictatorships in the world.

None of the scenarios in the 342-page report is positive. Everything from civil war, a nuclear attack on regional players (including the US) to a massive humanitarian crisis is detailed.

“The current North Korean government, led by Kim Jong Un, has showed signs of instability for some time and most experts agree that a collapse is likely,” said Bruce Bennett, the study’s author and a senior defense analyst. “It is more a matter of ‘when’ than ‘if’ it will occur.”

When Eastern Europe suddenly collapsed, the West faced similar issues, but nothing on this scale. Not only is the DPRK more economically impoverished than the former Soviet Bloc countries ever were, but the brainwashing and isolationism that North Koreans have endured will likely increase the chance of some sort of deadly military conflict with South Korea and the American forces helping to guard the Demilitarized Zone.

To make matters worse, China has a vested interest in North Korea – long a steady ally. A sudden collapse could send millions of refugees swarming across the border.

The report states that while there are cracks in the 50-plus years of isolationism, the vast majority of the population believe North Korea is a “paradise on earth,” and will vigorously defend their leadership, especially Kim Il-sung’s 30-year-old grandson, who has shown no signs of letting up on his family’s legacy o death camps and starvation.

North Korea has the largest military organization on earth, with 9,495,000 active, reserve and paramilitary personnel – essentially every citizen between the ages of 20 and 45. In addition, they have a vast stockpile of chemical and biological weapons and have recently announced the completion of at least two nuclear weapons.

Again, the United States negotiates from a weak position

Good Grief!

Secretary of State John Kerry flew to China on Saturday and sought to elicit China’s help in dealing with an increasingly recalcitrant nuclear armed North Korea by saying that American missile defenses could be cut back if the North abandoned its nuclear program.

Mr. Kerry’s trip to China, his first since taking office, is part of an intensive three-day push to try to calm tensions on the Korean Peninsula that have threatened to spiral out of control and rattled world leaders.

In a news conference, Mr. Kerry suggested that the United States could remove some newly enhanced missile defenses in the region, though he did not specify which ones. Any eventual cutback would address Chinese concerns about the buildup of American weapons systems in the region.

China has zero to fear from US missiles, unless they try something they should not, and China knows it. Here is how I handle this. I tell the Norks that ANY attack on us, or South Korea or Japan, will be met with an overwhelmingly violent response. Further, I let them know that continued threats will be taken seriously, and that we WILL strike them the very next time they issue a direct threat, PERIOD! I tell China that they know, and we know that our missiles will ONLY be used in defense, so we have absolutely no plans to cut anything back.

Call it the Hagin Doctrine. We walk softly, we will carry a big stick, and if we are ever forced to use that stick, we will use it with such devastating force that no one will ever even want to think about screwing with us or our allies again. Of course if I were president John Kerry would not only not be in any position of authority, he would not even be allowed to shovel Rino dung, but that is another post altogether.
