I haven't posted on it but I've been monitoring several reports that indicate a decapitation strike on the little fat man might be what the preemptive/retaliatory strikes talked about if the N. Koreans test a nuke weapon this weekend are really about.
What the fuck am I talking about? Check this out from the Diplomat (Jan 10, 2017)...
The South Korean government argues a swift targeted operation against North Korean leadership will serve as a prepared retaliatory strike against any North Korean provocation, doubling as a deterrent to North Korean nuclear ambitions. The thinking goes, “Cut off the head of the snake and the whole regime falls apart.” The logic is clean, simple, and completely idiotic. This kind of thinking is fortune cookie wisdom masquerading as strategic thought.This this from Sputnik (Aug 10, 2016)....
"Some Chinese scholars and policy makers began to talk about supporting ‘surgical strikes’ and decapitation’ by the US and South Korea as one policy option," said the esteemed professor. "More radical proposals indicate that China should change the leader, send troops across borders and station in DPRK, force DPRK into giving up nuclear and beginning opening up and reforming."Then this from USA Today (yesterday)...
The Trump administration has reportedly been drawing up contingency plans for solving the problem before millions of American lives are at stake. National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster said Sunday that deploying forces in the region was prudent and that President Trump has asked for “a full range of options to remove that threat to the American people and to our allies and partners in the region.” The Trump administration isn't the first to consider preemptive military action against North Korea. Defense secretaries from the Obama and Clinton administrations made the case in 2006. But active counterproliferation against North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs — which is to say, destroying them — has always been risky because of the threat of millions of North Korea troops swarming south.I was wrong.
However, there may be a solution that at least lowers the risk. During last month’s combined exercises in South Korea, U.S. forces participated in a simulated decapitation strike to take out North Korea’s leadership.
Think Tanks, Neo-Cons and the National Security establishment have been planning this type of action for quite awhile.
Looking at things in this light (sorry I didn't remember this sooner tribe members) it seems like a well laid plan is being carried out. The meeting with the Chinese President MIGHT (pure speculation) have been to hammer out a few details. The strike in Syria might have been a way to "acclimate" the American people to sudden military action (as was the dropping of the MOAB in Afghanistan yesterday).
If we see missiles fly this weekend, it was because this shit has been planned for at least 6 months or more.
How about a little sauce for the goose? Check this out from Business Insider...
The annual Foal Eagle military drills between the US and South Korea will include some heavy hitters this year — the Navy SEAL team that took out Osama bin Laden, Army Special Forces, and F-35s — Korea JoongAng Daily reports.Using open source materials we can put together a pretty circumstantial but in my eyes convincing argument that China, S. Korea, the US, and Japan are all in this and that the "war package" is already assembled.
South Korean news outlets report that the SEALs, who will join the exercise for the first time, will simulate a "decapitation attack," or a strike to remove North Korea's leadership.
Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Gary Ross later told Business Insider that the US military "does not train for decapitation missions" of any kind.
Yet a decapitation force would fit with a March 1 Wall Street Journal report that the White House is considering military action against the Kim regime.
The SEALs boarded the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and should arrive in South Korea on Wednesday, Joon Gang Daily reports.
They did this in the open and we all missed. I again apologize. I should have seen this sooner.
