Another indication war drums are beating in N. Korea. China ramps up its defenses along the border.

Thanks to PNWCommando for the link!

China has ramped up its defenses along its border with North Korea to ready itself for a potential crisis on the peninsula, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The newspaper reported Beijing has increased surveillance of the border region as well as a "combat readiness-level big data disaster recovery center." The military has also conducted drills and transferred units from other regions, the Journal reported.

The Journal said that these measures parallel President Donald Trump's comments that he is considering military action to curb Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions and that Beijing should do more to handle the matter

Consider this another piece of information when you think about whether or not war is being planned for N. Korea.

So let's get this straight.

First the president of the United States comes out and says that military options are on the table...he expresses regret that the Chinese weren't able to solve it...and he holds sidebar meetings with the Japanese prime minister almost constantly but those meetings are overshadowed by the Russia mania.

Second, we have Hawaii throwing a shit fit talking about how they need additional civil defense funding...the Japanese running drills to evacuate their towns and them telling their civilians that in case of a ballistic missile attack they might have minutes to react.

Last, we have the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs pushing back against those that say there can be no war in N. Korea because the casualties would be so horrific.

Step out of your normalcy bias!  War drums are beating in N. Korea and everyone seems to be ramping up.  The S. Koreans will be the last to act because it will affect their society the most.  They're probably taking steps in the military realm but if it became public then you would have panic, Seoul would damn near shutdown and business in the country would grind to a halt.

Take S. Korea out of your indicators.  Look at the other players...the US, China and Japan (Russia is probably laughing their asses off....the Neo-Cons are about to get us into another shit fest....that area is sparsely populated and they can always fly in paratroopers or Marines before it kicks off to control illegal immigration).

This thing might not happen but understand this.  We aren't living in ordinary times.  A war IS possible and we're seeing baby steps toward that nightmare scenario.
