THE REASON FOR WAR: NORTH KOREA SITTING ON $7 TRILLION WORTH OF MINERALS

The total value of the untapped minerals in North Korea is said to be enough so that if shared out among the seven billion people on Earth, everyone would receive a share that was more than $1000. 
NORTH KOREA IS HOME TO MORE THAN 200 MINERALS WORTH MORE THAN $7 TRILLION 
The secluded nation is home to huge deposits of over 200 minerals and this is said to include copper, magnesite, zinc, molybdenum, gold, limestone and iron that in total is worth more than $7 trillion. 
While there is a vast array or riches lying under the bedrock of North Korea, being able to take full advantage of them is something that has been very difficult. Thanks to the fact that North Korea lacks the mining machinery and equipment that would be needed to get at some of the rarer minerals, along with sanctions that make it illegal for private enterprises to put up drilling sites, it is impossible to extract the rarer minerals. 
MINING MAKES UP 14% OF NORTH KOREA`S ECONOMY
 Even with the limitations in place i…

ISRAELI DEFENSE MINISTER: TEL AVIV WILL NOT ALLOW IRAN TO BUILD MILITARY BASES IN SYRIA

(Photo credit should read MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images) On Thursday, Israeli Minster of Defense, Avigdor Lieberman said during a press conference at the Israel Institute of Energy and Environment that Israel will not sit and watch how the Iranian influence growing in Syria. “Iran, via its Revolutionary Guard, is trying to create a new reality in the region with Iranian air force and naval bases in Syria, with Shiite militias numbering thousands of mercenaries and by manufacturing precise weaponry in Lebanon,” Lieberman said. “Israel does not intend to resign itself to these attempts and will not act as onlooker from the sidelines.” Although Iranian presence in Syria is indeed growing Iran isn’t building any naval or air bases in Syria. Moreover, many experts doubt that the Iranian Air Force can handle a real deployment in Syria. However, Iran has mutliple facilities used as logistic bases across the country. In turn, Israel is likely trying to create a pretexts that it may use lat…

UN Issues Rare "Early Warning" - Signals Potential Civil Conflict In America

By Tyler Durden
United Nations Committee tasked with combating racism on a global scale has issued an ultra rare "early warning" for the United States citing "alarming racism" trends. As StockBoardAsset.com notes, this rare signal often preludes the potential for civil conflict. In the past 10-years, the early warning has been issued in Burundi, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria. The United Nations Committee on the Eliminations of Racial Discrimination has called on high-level politicians and public officials of the United States to condemn “racist hate speech and crimes in Charlottesville and through the country”. Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) said: We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred As per UN News Centre: In a …

Pentagon Makes a 20-year Plan, While Washington Outsources Its Color Revolution

By Scott Humor & Kulak
Trump’s new commitment to continue the war in Afghanistan comes as a shock, after all the Americans had voted to stop Washington’s wars around the world.  As a punishment, they are being treated to an artificially created civil conflict, while the deep state continues to use the US infrastructure, financial and human capital and military to pursue its doctrine of perpetual war. Reading from the teleprompter, Trump not only unveiled plans for open-end war, he also promised to stop revealing any future US plans. It makes sense to look at the plans they have revealed so far to see what to expect. After all, we all have witnessed working of the plan revealed by the general Wesley Clark in 2007 to take out seven countries in five years.
In August 2012, TRISA-Threats published “Operational Environments to 2028: The Strategic Environment for Unified Land Operations”. In this publication, TRADOC G-2 identified potentially contentious OEs and missions the US Army could f…

Korea, Afghanistan and the Never Ending War Trap

While the US-backed 'Hunger Games' in South Korea plow on, a 'new strategy' for Afghanistan is really all about business. But China is already there

By Pepe Escobar

There are more parallels between an unfinished 1950s war in Northeast Asia and an ongoing 16-year-old war in the crossroads between Central and South Asia than meet the eye. Let’s start with North Korea. Once again the US/South Korea Hunger Games plow on. It didn’t have to be this way. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov explained how: “Russia together with China developed a plan which proposes ‘double freezing’: Kim Jong-un should freeze nuclear tests and stop launching any types of ballistic missiles, while US and South Korea should freeze large-scale drills which are used as a pretext for the North’s tests.” Call it sound diplomacy. There’s no conclusive evidence the Russia-China strategic partnership floated this plan directly to the administration of US President Donald Trump. Even if they did, the propo…
