Has Kim won the "North Korea crisis"? Clear signs he may have done just that.

I wish I had the video for the "Wolf Blitzer Special Report on North Korea" (4/10/2013). Here is the evidence I gleaned from the report.

1) As had been reported earlier, the US announced it would NOT shoot down North Korean missiles being "tested," provided they were not heading for any populated targets.

2) "Reliable sources" reported that the White House is considering sending a high-level dignitary meet with Kim.

3) A War College "computer simulated attack on North Korea" demonstrated it would take up to two months to secure North Korea's nuclear sites and require more combat troops than those deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan COMBINED.

Also, there has been no more talk by either Secretary of State John Kerry or Pentagon officials that a nuclear North Korea is "unacceptable".

We may have dodged the bullet on this one. We should know within the next two to three weeks.

Computer simulated?

Oh like the man made global warming models.

The war college should focus more on economic models and how lobbyists can get more out of government lol

It is a distraction and also to facilitate TPP

Trans Pacific Partnership
"In addition to the United States, the countries participating in the negotiations include Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Japan has expressed its desire to become a negotiating partner, but not yet joined negotiation, partly due to public pressure to steer-clear.

The TPP would impose punishing regulations that give multinational corporations unprecedented rights to demand taxpayer compensation for policies they think will undermine their expected future profits straight from the treasuries of participating nations – it would push the agenda of Big PhaRMA in the developing world to impose longer monopoly controls on drugs, drastically limiting access to affordable generic medications that people depend on.

The TPP would undermine food safety by limiting labeling and forcing countries like the United States to import food that fails to meet its national safety standards, in addition to banning Buy America or Buy Local preferences." http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-trans-pacific-partnership-t...

Washington DC + Wall Street won

Those who create most of the disasters, including the 60 year stand off with NK, got what they wanted. A bunch of half wit Americans worried about a country that has less modern infrastructure than the old west did in the late 1800's.

People in fear do not react in rational ways. Long term solutions are invisible since an imminent threat clouds choices that are ALWAYS on the playing field.

A good remedy for this is to train oneself to focus on Midterm goals rather than immediate ones or long term. When focusing on Midterm Goals, the low hanging fruit and long term objectives work themselves out without being too near sighted or far sighted. It allows/forces one to examine issues at 80k Feet, 40k Feet, and 1k Feet.

Having multiple views of the same issue reveals the best route and whether your objective is reachable. Washington DC + Wall Street are adept at keeping US citizens and the World focused on tomorrow or next week, rather than next year and 5 years from now which is necessary to properly predict the outcomes of our individual actions.

They are in control so long as we are focused on them. Focus primarily on your place in Community and State, and the Federal and Household issues will work themselves out.

The Whole Thing Is Fake

Me thinks. Kim loves basketball not war.

skippy

Me agree...

what and who is to gain...that's what I am trying to sniff out.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Me thinks...

It is a Shell Game.

Agreed.

The whole North Korea thing seems like a good distraction from the goings in the middle east. Did the media completely forget about Syria and Iran, or is something going on that we don't need to hear?

Even Greenland knows what's going on!
