Korean war drums are still beating...

Yeah guys, the hits keep coming.  This is going as I predicted.  The news is becoming more and more focused on N. Korea and the possibility of war.  It's really a classic psyops campaign being run against the American people.

First you expose the problem to those that haven't been paying attention.  Second you saturate the news that you're doing everything possible to solve the issue peacefully.  Third you tell the people that those efforts have failed and that it might take "more forceful" means to ensure a safe world.  Last, you tell the American people that their safety is threatened by this activity and that it is essential that this threat be removed from the board.

We've seen it play out the same way in every war type situation we've been faced with since Desert Storm.  For a short time they played up protecting women and children of other nations but that has played out and the American people aren't buying it.  So they modified it to make threats on the other side of the planet seem like threats to our mainland.

But I digress.  Check out these articles.  via Daily Beast.
Several media outlets have reported that Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said over the weekend that war with North Korea was not “unimaginable.” What has gone unreported is that he also suggested the administration is giving diplomacy only “a few more months.”
Dunford’s comments, sure to be heard in Beijing and Pyongyang, come as the Trump administration is hinting, with various degrees of subtlety, that it is willing to kill Kim Jong Un, the North Korean despot.

Then this via New York Times.
North Korea will be able to field a reliable, nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile as early as next year, U.S. officials have concluded in a confidential assessment that dramatically shrinks the timeline for when Pyongyang could strike North American cities with atomic weapons.

The new assessment by the ­Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), which shaves a full two years off the consensus forecast for North Korea’s ICBM program, was prompted by recent missile tests showing surprising technical advances by the country’s weapons scientists, at a pace beyond what many analysts believed was possible for the isolated communist regime.

Finally this last story isn't exactly about a possible Korean War but an indication (at least to me) that they believe it will be a bloody affair and that we might need to entirely reconstitute our Army and Marine Corps.  via Military Times.
Restarting the military draft after more than four decades of an ­all-volunteer force would be complicated.

But it could be done.

One plan calls for young conscripts to have a choice: two years on active duty or six years in the reserves.

Either way, they’d first have to ­undergo basic training and job training.

If draftees want to go to college first, they must participate in a Reserve Officer Training Corps program and then serve.

If they fail or quit ROTC, they must then enlist.

Whichever option they choose, their obligation is fulfilled with a single combat deployment.
Those are some of the details ­proposed by retired Army Maj. Gen. Dennis Laich, one of the nation’s most aggressive advocates of abandoning the all-volunteer force in favor of a return to the draft.
Story here. 

I'm just the messenger but I really believe that the drums of war are beating hard on the Korean Peninsula.  You decide whether or not you agree but I believe I'm puzzling together separate articles that point to what many refuse to see.  It might not happen but the Pentagon is prepping for war.
