North Korea Could be Planning July 4 Fireworks
China Confidential analysts say North Korea is preparing even more missile tests--including launching a Taepodong-2 rocket capable of hitting Hawaii and Alaska--and at least one more nuclear test.
The Stalinist/Kimist state--a virtual vassal of China--could also be planning a major provocation around July 4 in order to overshadow American Independence Day celebrations.
Another Korean war is possible. In fact, it is probable. With tacit Chinese approval, North Korea has set in motion a dangerous dynamic that could easily escalate into an all-out war on the Korean Peninsula.
The U.S. could attempt to shoot down the Taepodong-2, which could give North Korea the pretext for attacking South Korea.
The North has vowed to attack both the South and the U.S. if North Korean ships suspected of carrying weapons of mass destruction are stopped and searched.
The U.S. has 28,500 troops in South Korea and another 50,000 in Japan.
Analysts expect Iranian nuclear and missile experts to assist and observe all North Korean tests.
China Confidential is the only media outlet that correctly predicted both North Korean nuclear tests, including predicting the exact test dates. Using open source intelligence and an international network of volunteer stringers and analysts, China Confidential has consistently out-reported the mainstream media on the twin threats to world peace--nuclear-armed North Korea and nuclear-arming Iran.
