The publication called Business Insider is carrying a story promoting a US first-strike attack on North Korea. The article includes a quote from the Wall Street Journal that reads, “An internal White House review of strategy on North Korea includes the possibility of military force or regime change to blunt the country’s nuclear-weapons threat, people familiar with the process said, a prospect that has some U.S. allies in the region on edge.”

The BI article also states:

Military action against North Korea wouldn’t be pretty. Some number of civilians in South Korea, possibly Japan, and US forces stationed in the Pacific would be likely to die in the undertaking no matter how smoothly things went.

Talk about an understatement. A US first-strike attack on North Korea would likely escalate quickly into a full bore war that would consume the entire Korean peninsula. China and even Russia (both have borders with North Korea) could easily be dragged into such a war.

In fact the war, behind the scenes, has really already begun. The New York Times reports in an article entitled Trump Inherits a Secret Cyberwar Against North Korean Missiles the following:

Three years ago, President Barack Obama ordered Pentagon officials to step up their cyber and electronic strikes against North Korea’s missile program in hopes of sabotaging test launches in their opening seconds.

Soon a large number of the North’s military rockets began to explode, veer off course, disintegrate in midair and plunge into the sea. Advocates of such efforts say they believe that targeted attacks have given American antimissile defenses a new edge and delayed by several years the day when North Korea will be able to threaten American cities with nuclear weapons launched atop intercontinental ballistic missiles.

At this very moment US and South Korean military units are holding their annual war games that practice a decapitating strike on North Korea. How does the North Korean government know if this time the ‘war game’ is for real or not?

American peace activist and Korea expert Tim Shorrock notes:

DPRK [North Korea] tests also in response to massive military base structure established by the US in South Korea and remilitarized Japan, all aimed at North Korea.

Add to all this the current Pentagon deployment of the very controversial THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) ‘missile defense’ system on board a C-17 cargo plane.
