SCARED OF ASSASSINATION: Kim Jong-un Fears Trump Administration
Think President Trump doesn’t affect world politics?
Then why is North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un running scared?
According to The Telegraph UK, Kim is nervous about being assassinated.
As well as being fearful of an attack by gunmen on the vehicles that he uses to travel around the country, Mr Kim is also constantly worried about an airstrike, officials of the National Intelligence Service told a restricted session of the South Korean parliament on Thursday, Yonhap News reported.
“Kim is engrossed with collecting information about the ‘decapitation operation’ through his intelligence agencies”, said Lee Cheol-woo, an opposition politician who attended the meeting.
Ask yourself if Kim and the media ever reported on such worries during the Era of Obama.
Kim constantly provoked Obama, who dismissed Kim and his nuclear missile arsenal as a mere nuisance.
Then comes President Trump. We wrote earlier of Kim’s “chirping”:
North Korea blustering is humorous now that America has a real president.
Kim Jong-un’s threats remind me of a Chihuahua chirping at a Mastiff.
North Korea escalated tensions with the White House recently by vowing to “ruthlessly ravage” U.S. troops if President Trump decides to strike.
For those wondering, ruthlessly savage is two levels above regular savage.
The menacing boast came as a U.S. aircraft carrier group headed for the region amid rising fears the secretive state is on the verge of another nuclear weapons test.
The tough talk continued,
“Our toughest counteraction against the U.S. and its vassal forces will be taken in such a merciless manner as not to allow the aggressors to survive,” the military statement said, according to the North’s state-sponsored KCNA news agency.
The language used by North Koreans correlates to what Obama would say when he threatened. And I’m sure our adversaries had the same laugh we share now on Kim Jong-un.
During the campaign, he said he would have the Chinese handle Kim.
I suspect the Chinese are doing their job on the inside.
And as the article suggests, the U.S. now takes decisive action:
He added that Mr Kim has taken to travelling at dawn; switches between different subordinates’ cars instead of always travelling in his own Mercedes-Benz.
Mr Kim’s concerns have soared since it was reported earlier this year that the US and South Korea are setting up a special forces unit that would be tasked with eliminating the North Korean leadership in the event of war breaking out on the peninsula.
In March, members of the US Navy’s Seal Team Six – which carried out the raid in which Osama Bin Laden was killed – took part in exercises with South Korean special forces, along with elements of the US Army’s Rangers, Delta Force and Green Berets units.
The US made it clear that the units were training to carry out a “decapitation operation” designed to kill the North’s leaders and destroy the regime’s ability to continue fighting.
Special forces play a support role.
So one has to believe that infiltration is occurring within the North Korean ranks.
You know there are people in North Korea who can’t wait for the Kim dictatorship to fall.
The article continues,
In May, Pyongyang claimed to have foiled a CIA plot for a North Korean who had been “ideologically corrupted and bribed” to assassinate Mr Kim with a “biochemical substance” and accused the US of conducting state-sponsored terrorism.
Other signs point to regime change in North Korea.
Admittedly, I’m no diplomat, nor do I know the inner workings of the CIA.
However, I have watched enough spy thrillers, read enough Clancy to know that something is afoot.
According to intelligence sources in South Korea, Kim stepped up his security in March 2013. They claim that armored vehicles are deployed close to his personal residence in Pyongyang.
Further, at Kim’s public events, troops armed with automatic rifles lined the streets and mobile phone signals jammed.
Prediction: things will get worse for Kim, as will his paranoia.
North Koreans will call this the Trump effect. Wouldn’t it be ironic if President Trump brought down North Korea without firing a shot? Sounds rather Reaganesque.
