What’s a time! Every day we have a new great hoax. Now another rumor is spreading at the Net that the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Mexican Gulf was actually torpedoed (!) by the North Korean ‘cargo vessel’ Dai Hong Dan:
“…the North Korean “cargo vessel” Dai Hong Dan believed to be staffed by 17th Sniper Corps “suicide” troops left Cuba’s Empresa Terminales Mambisas de La Habana (Port of Havana) on April 18th whereupon it “severely deviated” from its intended course for Venezuela’s Puerto Cabello bringing it to within 209 kilometers (130 miles) of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform which was located 80 kilometers (50 miles) off the coast of the US State of Louisiana where it launched an SSC Sang-o Class Mini Submarine (Yugo class) estimated to have an operational range of 321 kilometers (200 miles).
On the night of April 20th the North Korean Mini Submarine manned by these “suicidal” 17th Sniper Corps soldiers attacked the Deepwater Horizon with what are believed to be 2 incendiary torpedoes causing a massive explosion and resulting in 11 workers on this giant oil rig being killed outright. Barely 48 hours later, on April 22nd , this North Korean Mini Submarine committed its final atrocity by exploding itself directly beneath the Deepwater Horizon causing this $1 Billion oil rig to sink beneath the seas and marking 2010’s celebration of Earth Day with one of the largest environmental catastrophes our World has ever seen…”
To complete the picture, the ‘source’ of this ‘information’ is emphatically Russian: “A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that…”
So what is the objective of this ‘bomb’?
Let’s have a closer look on the Korean issue.
The destruction of North Korea and access to the border with China is a magnificent goal of American policy. Similarly, the preservation of North Korea is a major objective of Chinese policy. According to official data, about 28 thousand American soldiers are stationed in South Korea. The actual number is higher. And they have nuclear weapons.
There are no Chinese forces in North Korea, but they will appear there if North Korea is threatened with destruction, as happened during the Korean War. It is important to understand that we are discussing strategic concerns, not an ideological confrontation. China cannot allow American forces closer to its borders, and the United States does not want to cede China both Koreas.
All exacerbations of the situation are reflections of the conflict between the United States and China. And nothing else.
Why does North Korea want nuclear weapons? To guarantee its security. Only the threat of a nuclear attack on U.S. bases in South Korea would suspend a hypothetic attack of the ‘Empire of Good’ on North Korea. The Chinese, who are not at all interested in defending the weird Pyongyang regime, also need such a guarantee. That is why China helped the Koreans to develop the bomb.
Nowadays Washington’s mission is to portray North Korea as an aggressor. But it is laughable. Who has it attacked? Who has it threatened? A leak from an underground site with a reference to non-existent Russian source is ridiculous. Since the war 1950-1953, which was essentially a civil war, neither North nor South Korea has waged war with anyone. And how many times has the United States engaged in war since the 1950s? Who has used nuclear weapons against civilians, Korea or the United States?
So facing a real threat, the desire to protect themselves from the ambitions of the “Empire of Good” is what actually drives all nations attempting to acquire nuclear weapons. If it were not for the threat from the United States, Korea would not need the bomb! The more closely Americans focus on Pyongyang, the harder North Korea tries to develop nuclear weapons and the more energetically it tests them!
As a matter of fact, the Koreans have no nuclear missiles. They do have “devices”, about 5-10 of them. But they have not yet developed carriers capable of delivering them. Pyongyang, of course, is not going to be the first to use them, simply for the sheer fun of it. They ask only to be left in peace. And China wants the same thing.
What does the Washington establishment want? They want the exact opposite. They need war. Since America will face a war with China if it intervenes in Korea, it will not get involved itself. Their goal is to get North and South Korea to fight it out; China would probably be drawn into the conflict, which would have the effect of weakening it. The nuclear countries of India and Pakistan are not far away. Pakistan, which is in the process of disintegrating, is China’s principal ally in Asia. A beautiful game is taking shape. If India is drawn into the war as well due to deeply rooted problems with both China and Pakistan – spectacular fireworks in Eurasia are emerging! A local use of nuclear weapons would not undermine American ecology, but the United States would solve a wide range of problems:
• China would be weakened and it would be isolated internationally;
• The most densely populated regions of the Earth will be significantly chopped;
• By using the potential nuclear war as a pretext, the dollar would be sharply devalued or a new currency introduced, and China’s currency reserves would depreciate, thus solving the problem of the astronomical U.S. debt.
That is essential. The Wall Street needs war. War and Chaos. Everywhere. Preferably a limited nuclear war. Preferably fought by others. That is the essence of what is happening today. And the United States will start it wherever it can. It will provoke North Korea; it will provoke South Korea. Then terrorists will detonate a bomb in India, with a well-defined trail of evidence leading to Pakistan…
This is exactly why Russia and China sign joint declarations with the West condemning Pyongyang. We cannot allow a slightest pretext for escalation.
This is why a vague ‘mystical analysis’ web-site WhatDoesItMean.com specializing in ‘revelations’ from the ‘Russian sources’ desperately invents such pretexts. (*) They also need to crack the trust inside North Korea-China-Russia trio of the ‘Korean sextet’.
Let us wish North Korea stamina and courage. They will be subject to extreme provocations.
Let us wish the leadership of South Korea wisdom and intelligence to understand Washington’s intent, and that unification of Korea at such a price is unacceptable. Seoul will also need stamina—they will also undergo pressure and provocation. Otherwise, a second Korean war is just around the corner. And it will be the Asian Nuclear War…
(*) By the way, abundant details about the North Korean vessel in the article – I cannot exclude that she really was present at the area during the mentioned period – make me suggest that the US Maritime Domain Awareness program is already returning investments…
ORIENTAL REVIEW thanks Russian blogger and historian Nikolay Starikov for some of his ideas on ‘Korean issue’ that were used while preparing this post.
This is outstanding work. Thank-you so much. You not only make Russia proud, but me as well.
Very interesting thoughts, specially the economic one regarding China’s currency reserves and solving the US debt problem. Pakistan is disintegrating and its only a matter of time before it does so. Give it another 12 to 18 months and it’ll be occupied.

Wow. So much wrong information, so many unsupported assertions. This is parody right? Who have the Norks attacked? Um, a South Korean naval vessel last month, did you miss that? The US has nuclear weapons in S. Korea? The voices in your head tell you that?
“Let us wish N Korea stamina courage”? You’re a traitor to the human race and a supporter of a totalitarian regime that operates death camps. You should be dragged into the street and beaten with sacks of doorknobs.
Seek help, you are experiencing a paranoid breakdown.
Thanks for appreciation :) Let’s put emotions aside. Imagine the ‘truths’ you ‘know’ about N. Korea are as reliable as my ‘lies’. Just look at facts. First. Attack on South Korean naval vessel (it happened in March actually). No one proved that they were N.Koreans who committed the attack. The accident took place during maneuvers of SK Navy with the US forces. The area was thoroughly monitored by surveillance equipment. No one reported the presence of a NK submarine any other object inside the area during the maneuvers. The ‘part’ of ‘NK missile’ was presented almost two months after the ‘attack’. Looks like the ‘evidence’ was forged. Who bought this ‘revelation’? Nobody. Russians sent a special investigation team to Seoul to dig out the truth. They’ve prepared a report. No doubt the experts found the accusations absolutely baseless.
Second. I reread my article twice and found no statement that there are US nuclear weapons in SK. Everyone knows that they were withdrawn in 1991.
Third. Rob, I’m not a supporter of ‘NK totalitarian regime’. I’m opponent of the Wall Street totalitarian regime being imposed on your mind and billions of others. And unfortunately it is not a paranoid breakdown. “Let those who have ears to hear!”
Wow you provided a lot of information there. About, specifically why America is interested in South Korea as an Ally and China in the north. I really didn’t,t think of it like that good in sight.
Answer: The same other nations need nukes for.
An informative piece indeed.
Let us not forget that Israel Lobby is tightening Washington’s screw on China for later’s good relations with Iran, Pakistan and Sudan – which are considered threat to Zionist-regime’s existence.
I really appreciate this article. I think it sheds light on things that are purposefully left out of the American lamestream media. Many great investigators who are friends on FB have told me many times to always follow the money and you’ll find the rats. Wall Street is full of corruption and traitors as is congress and the whitehouse. We even have traitors in the Armed Forces. I am also of the mind to know that the zionist pigs are deeply involved here as well. Anytime you find something that stinks you’ll always turn up israel. Just look back, any doubters, and you will find all of the information about how the US is going back and forth with China about currency and Washington demanding that they increase the value of their money and the US always playing dirty games to hinder China. It’s high time the good people of the world unite and oppose all of the evil regimes on this planet and as an American I feel it is our duty to fully oppose our own perverse gov’t before we worry about anything that anyone else is doing.
If US didn’t nuke China or N. Korea in 1953 because of Russia’s alliance with China and Russia’s nuclear capacity to respond against Western Europe, what makes you think the next Korean war will use nuclear weapons at all?
Because N.Koreans didn’t have NWs then :) I still support the thesis that Wall Street seeks some kind of shocking strike against US interests to justify dollar collapse. Now the ‘perpetrator #1’ is Gaddafi, N.Korea is considered as a ‘reserve option’.
Wow.. I don’t mean to criticise your opinions. I feel that your article is making poor uneducated people worse off.. I can see you have your opinions, but it is just feeding the minds of those who seek revolution for the thrill of it. You clearly wrote that South Korea had nuclear weapons in your article. “The actual number is higher. And they have nuclear weapons.” You are giving the wrong impression with the wrong information to the people who read your article, especially to those who do not exactly have their own stance, or knows enough about the situation to make one. South Korea does NOT have nuclear weapons. How can you even say that????
I respect that you have your own stance in things. However I am sorry but you will need to get your facts right. North Korea need nuclear weapons as a easy barter to fix up the lack of food in their country. This is due to the lack of money that had flown into Juche North Korea, the lack of resources in the country, lack of market, general bad luck, and FAMINES****. The separation of the two Koreas is too sad, an inevitable leftover of the Second world war. However hundreds of people did not have to lose their homes and families at 2010, just because North Korea wanted to go on a rampage for losing massive food aid, due to South Korea’s change of policies during our presidential change. Also they wanted to create a big BANG of a show, to show WE CHANGED OUR LEADER, BUT WE STILL HAVE POWER!
Do you know why they are releasing a new satellite this year? It’s to hinder in the South Korean elections. It’s to scare the people in the other side.. Sigh. Do you not realise that letting North Korea in hold of nuclear weapons, gives them the OK-sign to barter with Russia as well? It is an immediate danger for all countries, especially for Japan, South Korea, Russia and the US. Just sayin’ dude.
Perhaps you should focus on something you actually know about. You are not impartial, you yourself is moved in the ideas and emotions of others.
It’s great that you are taking a stance, however next time you write an article like this: you need actual real information, and some general knowledge of politics.
I suppose your ‘Wow’ is a typical speech introduction of an ‘educated’ officer of the US State Department. Mrs. Clinton is a good teacher :)
What you call ‘education’ is the liberal indoctrination in essense. Indoctrination that does not let you understand more than three conseсutive lines. Below I’m reposting the whole paragraph you have referred to:
“The destruction of North Korea and access to the border with China is a magnificent goal of American policy. Similarly, the preservation of North Korea is a major objective of Chinese policy. According to official data, about 28 thousand American soldiers are stationed in South Korea. The actual number is higher. And they have nuclear weapons.”
I clearly wrote about the US troops. And I meant US nuclear weapons. Indeed, the land US nuclear launchers were withdrawn from SK in 1991. But can you insist that the US does NOT have sea-borne nuclear capabilities targeting Pyongyang? Moreover the story of American decades-long compromises with ‘nuclear-free’ Japan is well-known. You can read e.g. this detailed and quite impartial report by the Nautilus Institute on the matter: “Japan Nuclear Umbrella” (http://www.nukestrat.com/pubs/JapanUmbrella.pdf).
But I would honestly agree with your opinion with regard to psychological motives of the new NK leader to establish himself internally and externally. That’s quite understandable, isn’t it? Moreover taking into account the amount of the US food aid to NK :)
Da fuq.. Let’s just stop this nautical nonsense.. My own but may not so humble opinion: Develop tourism come on this is a new era. No war, the world is already in its deep slumber when it comes to war.. do not wake her up instead lets advertise or should I say encourage tourism.. Seoul is a good place.. think of the sports Boxing: Manny Pacquiao? Soccer in africa come on guys.. think of the innocent lives that may be fuq.. :) God..?
After the recent escalation in its rhetoric, the NK may have exhausted all the tricks it has in its bullying tactics.
It seems it is likely to face a situation where it would lose face when it is ignored by all others.
The international community should not resume or even consider to resume any talks with NK until it backs down by itself totally and completely.
China should reduce its trade and particularly aid with NK each time the NK plays bully, to make NK’s life more difficulty to send signals that its wayward bully will not work in its own interests but only the contrary.
