This is from a blog post commentator named D city so nice Dey named it twice, posted below this article:

The only ones who are not afraid are the ones stupid enough not to be.

There’s a lot of truth in that simple statement.

And of course we are talking here about the daily escalation happening between North Korea and, well, the entire Western world. Because that is how this line in the sand will parse out if North Korea makes a bold move. That’s the real cause of concern – not a war with North Korea, but the war that would quickly develop after North Korea is already a smoldering heap of ashes.

I don’t mean to say that North Korea should be taken lightly, or that they have no capability to deliver a grievous blow. I just know that if they do deliver that strike, they will summarily cease to exist in short order.

Already there is this story about how two of its subs have left a naval base and disappeared. They’ve also recently relocated some mid-range missiles to the east coast of their country with the capability of striking Japan.

There’s so many ways this thing could go it quickly overwhelms any attempts to map it out.

For instance, what if North Korea is not acting independently – what if they are being dictated to by China? Still fresh in the news is China and Japan’s growing hostility over the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands. Many have speculated that that conflict could easily explode into a wider war. And if that were not serious enough, enter North Korea with it’s declaration of war against South Korea and threats to strike US targets with nuclear weapons. Is it conceivable that China is using North Korea as a catalyst to spark a wider war and to suffer the brunt of the initial response?

Because, if that is conceivable, it sure looks like the big players are rearranging their chess pieces in preparation for what might follow such an opening salvo. The US has flown nuclear-capable B2 bombers into the theater, and has also beefed up it’s anti-missile shield defenses in the Pacific.

China is also moving personnel and equipment rapidly into position along its North Korean border. Do they take North Korea’s threats more seriously than even the pundits in the US seem to, based on their remarks? Don’t listen to what they say, watch what they do, and what both China and the US seem to be doing, is preparing to go to war, at least to my eyes. Never mind that it might be North Korea that sets the game into motion. That’s just the opening act.

Fear is not useful in dealing with these new developments, but sobriety and wakefulness certainly is. It could be possible that everyone is a lot closer to eternity than they realize right now. Make your peace with God – he’s in control of all that we’re seeing unfold. For me, that’s the only thing that keeps me from soiling myself on a daily basis in light of this kind of global insanity. Shalom.

Aggressive posturing is not new for North Korea, but this is starting to sound a bit more desperate and serious than what’s preceded it. Who knows – at some point you would think they would have to back up their rhetoric with some action or risk losing all credibility (if they haven’t already). Dangerous times…

The Extinction Protocol

March 26, 2013NORTH KOREANorth Korea stepped up its aggressive rhetoric on Tuesday, ordering its rocket and long-range artillery units to be combat ready and on the “highest alert” and issuing new threats against U.S. bases on Hawaii, Guam and mainland America. Pyongyang warned that U.S. facilities would be “reduced to ashes and flames the moment the first attack is unleashed,” according to a military order issued by the pariah state’s military “supreme command.” It comes in response to joint military drills by U.S. and South Korean forces which began in the area early this month and which have seen U.S. bombers flying sorties threatening the North. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects an army landing exercise on Monday. South Korea’s defense ministry said it saw no sign of imminent military action by North Korea Tuesday, according to Reuters. The announcement marked a further increase…
