"U.S. policy for dealing with the North Korean situation is inadequate because it focuses on North Korea in isolation as a rogue state, and naively seeks help from the Russians and Chinese to solve the problem. The North Korea situation and any future nuclear incident, wherever it occurs, must be seen against the background of Sino-Soviet 'convergence' strategy: the interaction of Russian and Chinese policy and the moves they make to derive strategic gains from critical situations should be closely studied."
- Anatoliy Golitsyn, the highest ranking KGB defector to the West, The Perestroika Deception, 1990, p.46
Going way back, I have been warning of the possibility that a second Korean War might be ignited as part of the East starting World War Three with the West. From my 1998 "Korea Alert":
As I've been warning, igniting the Korean Peninsula may be a strategic diversion planned by Moscow. By having North Korea attack South Korea early-on in, or maybe at the beginning of, world war three, Russia can divert a sizeable proportion of U.S. military forces into the Far East. In this way....the Middle East (is) left under-defended and vulnerable to Russia's "Last Dash to the South"...
Indeed, it may be tell tale that the DMZ separating North and South Korea is the final battle line in the struggle between Communism and Capitalism, tyranny and democracy, East and West. What's more, I think it's symbolic that the key city that will initially come under seige is called "Seoul" since I believe ultimately what the world is experiencing is a battle for man's soul between the forces of Evil and the forces of Good.
In light of this, developments concerning North Korea should be carefully watched. The sinking of the South Korean Cheonan warship in March has the region on edge, so it won't take much to trigger a full-scale war. In fact, one of the Kremlin's main propaganda mouthpieces, Pravda (which means "truth" in Russian), is running an ongoing special news section dubbed, "Large-scale War Possible On Korean Peninsula", to spell out to the West the looming conflict.
In recent days there have been some suspicious developments that have caught my eye suggesting that Pyongyang may be staging some sort of bogus power struggle that could be a precursor to a second Korean War.
This would make some sense given that the DJIA is flirting with a reversal from the psychologically important 10,000 mark into the Grand Supercycle crash portion of the Apocalypse Wave.
Other signs that Russia is in the final stages of concocting the West's thermonuclear defeat:
