The West Still Doesn’t Understand North Korea

“The Kim regime’s entire existence is wedded to the idea that only that family can remake Korea whole and protect it from the outside world. Deals with the West buy North Korea time, and are wholly one-sided. Inevitably (and sooner than anyone thinks), the North will strike out with nuclear weapons, and we are entirely unprepared for that day.”

North Korea’s Nuclear Program and the Cone of Uncertainty

“What is certain that, at present, the North will have a working nuclear arsenal that can threaten anywhere in the world no later than 18 months from now. What is also certain is that, the longer that the Trump Administration delays decisive action, the more likely that the United States will have to say “goodbye” to one of its prized cities, and will still be forced to defend South Korea from a probably invasion from the North (and/or retaliate against the North for likely attacks against Japan).”

The Case for an American Space Corps

“The Air Force is institutionally incapable of fully resourcing space operations, and will always view space as a secondary function to their primary mission of air dominance.”

America Needs Space Weapons–Now

“By placing a reliable missile defense system in orbit; by potentially placing non-nuclear offensive weapons in orbit, American deterrence would be assured, and our competitors would be put on their heels. A missile defense system in space would neuter the threat that nuclear weapons pose, and offensive strategic weapons in orbit would hold our rivals hostage, in much the same way that nuclear weapons held the world hostage in the Cold War—minus the risks to our people.”

Don’t Panic (Yet): North Korea Remains Predictable

“The only thing that can be done is to give America a proverbial ace up its sleeve; without it, we will be in a crushing war in North Korea that will likely break the American economy; destroy our fighting forces; and ratchet tensions between the U.S., China, and Russia to untenable levels. America must develop and deploy a space-based missile defense system with due haste.”

How War with Iran Strengthens Russia

In this lecture, geopolitical analyst, Brandon J. Weichert, details how the increases in volatility in the global energy market (thanks to greater tensions with Iran) will disproportionately benefit the Russian Federation, which is almost entirely dependent on the price of fossil fuels being high, in order to make Russia strong.

It’s Time for Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship with Russia

“However, much like how the British and French Empires of old managed to keep relative peace and prosperity between their two countries, the United States and Russia must learn to balance each other peacefully–and work together more often and more amicably.”

The Haze of Peace: North Korea, Trump, and the Art of Deterrence

“Once the President returns home from his trip, the American naval forces will return to their normal operations, and the North Koreans will lie low for the next handful of months until they are confident in their ability to threaten the United States with nuclear weapons. Once that happens, all bets will be off. If I were making predictions, I’d say to be focused more on Iran in the medium-term and less on North Korea at this point.”

Predictions on North Korea

The Trump Administration will make a deal with North Korea. But, this deal will not last more than 18 months because Kim Jong-un IS unstable.
