North Korea: Next War
It won’t be today or tomorrow you have a little while to do as you please, or wish (perhaps this letter is for Seoul, more so, than anyone else; it would be wise for Japan and Twain also to read it, the more I think about it). The North is still too prosperous the way things are going. Their nuclear factories are at near capacity, why would they fight an all out war as long as money can still be made without. So Seoul can go about business as normal or as planned—go home at nights and watch television, go to the ball games, drink until you pass out, enjoy the liberties at hand, that were fought for so long ago, for whoever has a dollar or a yen, or euro—spend it while you can. But sooner than you think, after all this now, is settled (the irritation, and war movements going on) the real fighting will be in the minds of the North, and it will surface. Then what will take place? Both sides will draft their young men and women into this profitless war! The powers that represent this side of the world, the invisible checks will come. The North and South are incapable of fighting a war, long lasting war, on its own; they will drag in the world. No matter how gradually it is America and China and all the countries thereabouts will be on Red Alert, into a war status.
As we can see already, the mismanagement of North Korea has made their currency inflated to worthlessness. War may bring them a temporary prosperity, and a permanent ruin. But as it has been said, and done in the past— both are a: “Refuge for political and economic opportunists.”
No Asian country is our friend (or friend to the USA, believe what you want, but that is a most true statement, and as straight as I can put it, in a like manner there really is not one country in Asia worth fighting for; the same goes for Europe, although perhaps England may be the exception). This country should never be put in such a position. Just like no Middle East country is our friend, to include Israel, and we should not be over there yet, allowing our youth to be sitting ducks for the Arabs.
So the question comes up: can we avoid war?
Let’s be honest—whatever we give to another country, we never receive back. On the other hand we are a country that lives under a cloud of pretense. We lie better than most countries. We overlook our treaties, declarations; our intentions coincide with our whims. We are a cynical nation, armed to the teeth. Our ambitions shift, like the tides in the sea. And our politicians play on the admirable patriotic hysteria of the young, to fight the wars of the day, such as South Korea has recently done with their youth, and North Korea has in the past done. The real enemy is China and Russia—let our hopes be in that they sit out the next Korean Conflict, if they don’t, God forbid what will come out of it.
