Steve Pieczenik: Trump Admin Needs To Get FULL Credit For Korea

 

From Wikipedia:

Pieczenik was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry KissingerCyrus Vance and James Baker.[2] His expertise includes foreign policy, international crisis management and psychological warfare.[7] He served the presidential administrations of Gerald FordJimmy CarterRonald Reagan and George H. W. Bush in the capacity of deputy assistant secretary.[8]

In 1974, Pieczenik joined the United States Department of State as a consultant to help in the restructuring of its Office for the Prevention of Terrorism.[1]

In 1976, Pieczenik was made Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for management.[1][4][9][10]

At the Department of State, he served as a “specialist on hostage taking”.[11] He has been credited with devising successful negotiating strategies and tactics used in several high-profile hostage situations, including the 1976 TWA Flight 355hostage situation and the 1977 kidnapping of the son of Cyprus’ president.[1] He was involved in negotiations for the release of Aldo Moro after Moro was kidnapped.[12] As a renowned psychiatrist, he was utilized as a press source for early information on the mental state of the hostages involved in the Iran hostage crisis after they were freed.[13] In 1977, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Mary McGrory described Stephen Pieczenik as “one of the most ‘brilliantly competent’ men in the field of terrorism”.[14] He worked “side by side” with Police Chief Maurice J. Cullinane in the Washington, D.C. command center of Mayor Walter Washington during the 1977 Hanafi Siege.[15] In 1978, Pieczenik was known as “a psychiatrist and political scientist in the U.S. Department of State whose credentials and experiences are probably unique among officials handling terrorist situations”.[1]

On September 17, 1978 the Camp David Accords were signed. Pieczenik was at the secret Camp David negotiations leading up to the signing of the Accords. He worked out strategy and tactics based on psychopolitical dynamics. He correctly predicted that given their common backgrounds, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin would get along.[2]

In 1979, he resigned as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State over the handling of the Iranian hostage crisis.[3]

In the early 1980s, Pieczenik wrote an article for The Washington Post in which he claimed to have heard a senior U.S. official in the Department of State Operations Center give permission for the attack that led to the death of U.S. Ambassador Adolph Dubs in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1979.[16]

Pieczenik got to know Syrian President Hafez al-Assad well during his 20 years in the Department of State.[2]

In 1982, Pieczenik was mentioned in an article in The New York Times as “a psychiatrist who has treated C.I.A. employees”.[17]

In 2001, Pieczenik operated as chief executive officer of Strategic Intelligence Associates, a consulting firm.[18]

Pieczenik has been affiliated in a professional capacity as a psychiatrist with the National Institute of Mental Health.[19]

Pieczenik has consulted with the United States Institute of Peace and the RAND Corporation.[20]

Pieczenik began mentorship of Drew Paul, founder of Blabor.com.[21] Blabor.com is now the production company responsible for Pieczenik’s web and media releases.[22][23]

As recently as October 6, 2012, Pieczenik was listed as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).[24] According to Internet Archive, his name was removed from the CFR roster sometime between October 6 and November 18, 2012.[25]Publicly, Pieczenik no longer appears as a member of the CFR.[26]

Pieczenik is fluent in five languages, including Russian, Spanish and French.[1][2][3]

Pieczenik has lectured at the National Defense University.[7]

Trump’s Russia Tweets From APEC Trigger Verified SJW Doctor And Liberal Click Bait Fake News Propagandist

The Libtards have been in an uproar (what’s new), after President Trump was seen shaking hands with Vladimir Putin at this years APEC meeting. God forbid the leaders of the worlds super powers meet and have discussions on Geopolitical matters!

What really got these idiots in a frenzy was the Tweets President Trump dropped while in Vietnam.

trump_russia_apectweet

This immediately triggered Libtards that have nothing better to do with their time than to go on twitter rampages on every single one of President Trump’s tweets. Some of these verified accounts wouldn’t have views unless they were attacking the President. Lets take a look at two of the most prominent frequently offended SJW’s.

trump_russia_apectweet_libtardreplies

Here we have SJW Twat Eugene Gu, MD. He somehow finds enough time in his, what I imagine should be a busy day, to Tweet attacks at every single Tweet President Trump posts. Claims he’s been blocked by President Trump, however if that was true he wouldn’t be able to see the President’s Tweets let alone reply to them lol.

Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) _ Twitter

If he is blocked by President Trump, as this twat-waffle claims, how does he see Trump’s Tweets? Did Twitter give him some sort of special access to see and reply to Tweets even though he is banned? I don’t think so, I’m calling total BS on this.

Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) _ Twitter (1)333

Now on his profile it says he is the President of Ganogen Inc., lets take a look at that Twitter account.

Ganogen (@Ganogen_Inc) _ Twitter2

This guy is constantly making claims that he has been targeted for harassment in his workplace, 90 percent of the time these types of claims from SJW’s are complete bullshit. Many times these mentally ill morons will fake supposed hate crimes to garner attention. They will literally say anything to make themselves look like victims because we all know the Left is obsessed with professional victim-hood.

This guy also claims he gets a ton of death threats from Trump Supporters, yet I have yet to see him post any real evidence of this.

I still can’t believe BBC had this asshole on T.V.

Just so you know he thinks anyone that voted for President Trump is a white supremacist, you know because apparently only white people voted for Trump. The ignorance is strong in this one.

eugenegu_whitesupremacist

The fun doesn’t stop there! We now move on to Bill Palmer and his “Palmer Report” Twitter account.

Palmer Report twitter page

This waste of viable sperm literally has built an entire “Honest Political Journalism” site of nothing but attacks on President Trump. Like literally every story is a hit piece on President Trump! I’m not kidding, check out the page for yourself .

Palmer Report

The Palmer Report is literally a complete waste of a domain name, 16 ARTICLES IN ONE DAY! ALL OF THEM ATTACKS ON THE PRESIDENT. 100 percent click bait every single time. Either this Bill Palmer and his staff of writers are obsessed with President Trump, to the point of mental illness, or someone is getting some of that David Brock “Shareblue” money.

Palmer Report 2

You see what I mean? I wasn’t kidding, the entire website is Liberal Trump Derangement Syndrome click bait. Every. Single. Post.

You know, I don’t go around claiming I am some unbiased professional journalist, I don’t try to hide the fact that I am right-leaning in my coverage of stories. Bill Palmer on the other hand sells himself as an honest political journalist when in fact he is another Leftist Propagandist making ad money from a click bait website.

I’m guessing he’s taking a play out of the CNN playbook and hoping that his constant attacks on President Trump might bring some SJW traffic to his rather sad website.

Which brings me back to President Trump’s Tweets and the marvelous Trolling that triggered these asshats to begin with.

trump_russia_tweet2

I mean honestly, if President Trump was the “fascist” the Left has declared him to be, why would he be actively trying to engage China and Russia to seek a peaceful resolution to the North Korea situation? Wouldn’t he have started a war already? It’s not enough to send diplomats and hope they can hash something out, sometimes it is far more effective to meet with people face to face and have an open dialogue. That’s how you solve a problem without having to resort to military force. If Trump is a fascist, he is the worst fascist I have ever seen.

trump_russia_restartbuttontweet

This particular Tweet made me laugh, mostly because I remember how much of an embarrassment it was!

Yeah, lets reset relations with Russia by claiming that they hacked our elections and then proceed to threaten them with military force over imaginary cyber attacks that never happened. Lets spend the bulk of 16 months attacking Russia and Vladimir Putin ad nauseum and pushing fake news talking points of “Trump-Russia Collusion” to cover up our own corruption. Yeah that was so cool.

War With North Korea A Very Real Possibility

As North Korea announces that it has successfully tested its first hydrogen bomb, the situation on the Korean peninsula is approaching the point of no return. Lets just recap some facts here.

China has warned North Korea that it will not come to its aid if it launches the first strike.

North Korea launched a missile over Japan to prove it can strike Guam.

North Korea has stepped up missile tests and has been launching tests every few weeks.

North Korea has 100,000 pieces of artillery aimed at Seoul, South Korea.

The United States has been running drills practicing using tactical nuclear weapons along the DMZ that separates North and South Korea in response to the nuclear threats coming from the North.

North Korea has plans to detonate a nuclear warhead over the West Coast of the United States causing a massive EMP blast that would collapse the entire electrical grid of the west coast.

North Korea is constantly defying China and the United Nations.

It is in my estimation that China has lost control over North Korea and that a war with the North is a very viable possibility.

President Trump is moving to put serious financial pressure on China.

North Korea: Headlines Largely Ignored By The Mainstream Media

The American Mainstream Media would like to paint President Trump in a negative light when it comes to dealing with North Korea, however the President is faced with a lingering and festering problem that has been ignored and allowed to metastasize for decades. One would be surprised to learn that many Southeast Asian countries have also had enough of North Korea’s provocations.

The Korea Times:

“Southeast Asian and Asia-Pacific countries are “arm-in-arm” in pressing North Korea harder, as seen from the statement released at the end of the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), analysts said Wednesday.

The experts speculated the ASEAN nations especially played a role in pushing internationally isolated Pyongyang to observe U.N. resolutions in the ARF Chairman’s Statement.

It summarizes the highlights of the annual security forum held in Manila, the Philippines, where foreign ministers from 10 ASEAN member nations and 17 Asia-Pacific countries gathered from Sunday to Tuesday.

The ministers “expressed their grave concern” over North Korea’s two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests on July 4 and 28, as well as its two nuclear tests in 2016 and shorter-range ballistic missile launches,” according to the statement.

It read that the ministers urged North Korea to “immediately comply fully with its obligations” under the relevant U.N. Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. They include Resolution 2371 approved on Aug. 5 to punish Pyongyang’s ICBM tests in July.”

North Korea has stepped up its saber-rattling, claiming it will have plans drawn up to launch a warning shot at U.S. Forces in Guam.

The Korea Times:

“In a tit-for-tat of bellicose rhetoric, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said its strategic force is “seriously examining” the plan for an “enveloping strike” at Guam with four Hwasong-12 missiles “in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”

It said in an English statement that the missiles will cross the sky above the Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi prefectures of Japan and fly 3,356.7 kilometers and land 30 to 40 km away from Guam.

The North’s military will finalize the plan by mid-August and report it to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and await his order, the report said.”

I must admit to my dismay, that my own personal technical assessments of North Korea’s ability to miniaturize its Nuclear Warheads may have been wrong. A report from the Defense Intelligence Agency state that North Korea can now make nukes small enough to fit on its Hwasong weapon platform, however I still maintain that they have not yet demonstrated the technical capabilities to produce a reliable atmospheric reentry vehicle for its warheads.

In my opinion, a more immediate concern should be the current threat posed by North Korea’s chemical weapons arsenal. It is estimated that North Korea currently has a stockpile of around 2,500 to 5,000 tons of different weaponized chemical agents, which can be delivered via aircraft, artillery shells, and ballistic missiles.

38 North:

“Chemical agents currently reported to be in the KPA inventory include, but are not necessarily limited to: adamsite (DM), chloroacetophenone (CN), chlorobenzyliidene malononitrile (CS), chlorine (CL), cyanogen chloride (CK), hydrogen cyanide (AC), mustard-family (H, HD or HL), phosgene (CG and CX), sarin (GB), soman (GD), tabun (GA) and V-agents (VM and VX).[5] It is important to note that, according to KPA defectors, the DPRK produces a total of 20 different chemical agents for use in weapons. It is believed that the KPA has concentrated upon sulfur mustard, chlorine, phosgene, sarin and the V-agents.”

I would not doubt that such weapons would be used by the North on populated centers inside South Korea and Japan and U.S. military installations in the region.

South Korea has been stepping up its rhetoric also, warning North Korea that any strike against South Korea or U.S. Forces would have dire consequences.

The Korea Herald: 

“South Korea’s military warned Thursday that North Korea will pay a harsh price for an attack on the South or its ally the United States.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff issued the strongly worded message in response to the North’s continued war rhetoric, including a threat to fire ballistic missiles toward Guam.

Should the North ignore the warning and provoke, it will face “the allies’ strong and resolute retaliation,” Army Col. Roh Jae-cheon, the JCS spokesman, said in a statement.”

North Korean ICBM’s Still Can’t Hit New York Or D.C.

Lets take a moment from all the heavy breathing and fear mongering going on in the Mainstream Media. The truth is that although a North Korean missile might have the range to strike targets deep inside the United States, it is still a few years away from developing the technology for warhead reentry.

Payload re-entry is still a technical hurdle that the North Korean’s are going to have to tackle before they could potentially pose a threat to the U.S. Mainland.

Don’t believe me? 38 North is also having doubts, as the latest Hwasong-14 missile test failed in its re-entry phase. 

It is not to say that these missiles don’t pose a threat, they absolutely do, however it is still going to be another 2 or 3 years before North Korea has the technical capability to miniaturize its nuclear warheads and make it over the re-entry hurdle. What good is a warhead if it wont survive re-entry into the Earths atmosphere?

Although the North Korean’s have their hands on American warhead designs, it doesn’t necessarily mean they can reliably replicate these highly sophisticated pieces of equipment.

In my opinion, I think this another ploy to draw the Trump Administration into a situation it may not be able to back down from. The establishment would rather see this country fail than see the Trump Administration succeed.

 

 

North Korea: Long Range Threat Analysis

Truth be told, there is a lot of conflicting information out there concerning North Korea’s actual Nuclear Strike capability against the United States.

Let us not turn our attention to the mainstream medias bullshit. We should instead look to 38 North, a website dedicated to the study of North Korea by the US-Korea Institute at John Hopskins SAIS.

In a recent report by John Schilling, an aerospace engineer with over 20 years of experience in his field, titled “What is True and Not True About North Korea’s Hwasong-14 ICBM: A Technical Evaluation”, he breaks down the actual threat posed by this weapons platform.

Schilling writes:

“After the frenzy of technical speculation over the successful launch of North Korea’s Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the dust seems to be clearing and the emerging reality is that the North has an unreliable missile that can reach Alaska or Hawaii with a single nuclear warhead, and would be lucky to hit even a city-sized target. However, with a year or two of additional testing and development, it will likely become a missile that can reliably deliver a single nuclear warhead to targets along the US west coast, possibly with enough accuracy to destroy soft military targets like naval bases. In perhaps five years, North Korea may be able to incorporate a modest suite of decoys and penetration aids to challenge US missile defenses. Let’s hope US missile defenses are up to that challenge.”

Which in plain terms means that currently, North Korea has the capability to strike a number of our allies and our assets in the region. Even in its current stage of development, this missile could potentially strike a number of military installations and population centers across South Korea and Japan.

Whether or not that kind of strike would be successful is questionable. With the extensive missile defense capabilities of the United States currently deployed in the theater consisting of the THAAD Missile Defense Shield in both South Korea and Alaska, and the rather hefty supply of Patriot Anti Missile systems and AEGIS cruisers, I highly doubt any North Korean strike wouldn’t be intercepted.

Schilling writes:

“Contrary to the assertions of some analysts that the missile is currently capable of carrying several warheads, not just one, it may eventually be able to carry a modest suite of decoys or penetration aids, though probably not for several years. A multiple warhead capability, while theoretically possible, would require a very lightweight warhead, which will require a lot more nuclear testing and is probably a decade in the future at best.”

It makes me wonder if North Korea is crazy enough to put these missiles into production, giving themselves the ability to launch an armed Hwasong-14 alongside several conventional warheads to create a wave of decoys, in hopes that the nuclear payload is able to make it through any missile defense systems in the area and to its intended target most likely inside South Korea or Japan. This is most likely why both countries are currently running evacuation drills of potential target areas. 

In conclusion, our allies and forces neighboring North Korea are all within their current Nuclear Strike range, the Hwasong-14 could delivery both nuclear and conventional payloads of varying sizes onto South Korean and Japanese targets. North Korea would need to launch a barrage of decoy missiles alongside the actual Nuclear payload to effectively bypass American anti-missile shield, at current technical levels the Hwasong-14 can only carry one warhead per ICBM.

A strike by North Korea would most likely target US military targets inside South Korea or even Seoul itself. US forces in Japan and heavily populated civilian centers would also be high on the list of potential targets.

In 5 years North Korea will have the ability to strike the United States West Coast. By 2030 we could see Hwasong-14 missiles carrying multiple nuclear warheads.

China’s Trade With North Korea Raises Questions As U.S. Ambassador To China Prepares To Settle In

I’m guessing President Xi is keeping his word to President Trump that China would take a more hard-line stance with North Korea.

We all know that China hasn’t been buying Coal from North Korea, however Chinese customs are reporting that overall China is importing less goods from the hermit kingdom.

Chinese importation of North Korean goods fell 31% in May compared to the previous year.  ($123.75 Million)

March was even worse, North Korea saw a 51.7% drop in exports to China compared to the previous year. ($114.55 Million)

Chinese imports from North Korea have dropped almost 10% overall since January and will most likely continue to drop as long as Kim Jong-un defies calls for de-escalation with the United States and its Allies.

All these things sound great, however this is what I don’t understand, and I suspect may be a power play to try to influence North Korea.. Chinese exports to North Korea have risen 32% since May of last year. I’m guessing this is going to be used as leverage at some point.

I suspect that as the months go on, and President Trump’s Ambassador to China Terry Branstad settles in, we will see even more moves from China to clamp down on North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Apparently former Iowa Governor Terry Branstad has known Chinese President Xi for a long time and the two men respect each other, Now that Branstad has been appointed Ambassador to China, we might see some real progress on the North Korean front.

 

 

May Updates On North Korea 5-27-17

May 25, 2017. Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces in South Korea defended the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system, citing the latest missile tests conducted by North Korea.

The deployment of THAAD has been met by local opposition which claim that the system may be seen as a threat by China. They have voiced concern that China may scale back trade with South Korea due to the deployment. China would rather not have such an advanced system so close to Beijing. China’s capital is a little over 500 miles away from the THAAD installation. China’s concern is mostly over the advanced radar and electronic espionage systems which typically accompany the THAAD system.

May 24, 2017. Russian President Vladimir Putin has voiced his willingness to mediate talks between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States. This would not be well received by the American Mainstream Media as they are still pushing their “Russiaphobia” headlines. They have not given up their “Russians hacked the election” narrative, despite no evidence whatsoever of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia.

May 21, 2017. North Korea successfully tests the Pukguksong-2 missile which is estimated to have a striking range of 1,200 miles. Kim Jong-un has approved this missile system for mass production and deployment, further raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

May 23, 2017. An apparent Drone (unmanned aerial vehicle) was spotted flying out of North Korea over the demilitarized zone that separates the two Korea’s.

North Korea – New Developments

Here’s some of the latest news on North Korea that the mainstream media will completely ignore. At least for a few days anyway 🙂

In a move to expand on the ground human intelligence, US Elite military intelligence group is being moved to  South Korea this coming October.

North Korea is expanding its missile launch sites in latest satellite images. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, they are going to continue to defy the international community.

Trump sends former officials to meet with Senior North Korean Diplomat in Europe. This is a good step, I find it interesting that there will be no Chinese officials at this meeting.

North Korea attempting to manipulate South Korean Elections. Now here is an actual legitimate case of foreign election manipulation. lol

Seoul denies NIS, CIA targeted North’s leader I am on the fence with this story lol, I mean the CIA did try to poison Castro, right?

 

 

China is Bitch Slapping North Korea

It appears that President Trump’s talks with President Xi of China have really paid off. China seems to be taking a much stronger stance on North Korea and it has Lil Kim in Pyongyang fuming.

Beijing is having doubts about renewing its 56 year mutual assistance treaty, while North Korea’s state-run news agency “Korean Central News Agency” is running statements saying that “China is disloyal” and says that China has crossed the “red line”.

The statements aired were disguised as comments by a private citizen of North Korea. They also included:

“will never beg for the maintenance of friendship with China, risking its nuclear program which is as precious as its own life, no matter how valuable the friendship is” Kim Chol

China has been intensifying its efforts to rein in North Korea by pushing for new sanctions while simultaneously attempting to set the stage for diplomatic talks.

In an effort to cut down on any money and illegal smuggling into North Korea, China has stepped up customs inspections of all cargo trucks entering and leaving North Korea. Typically only a small number of these trucks are inspected, going forward ALL cargo trucks will be inspected by customs agents.

Word is that the sentiment inside the Chinese government is pushing towards ending the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty.

As I had previously predicted, President Donald Trump’s gamble on President Xi is absolutely paying off.

N.K. hackers freely accessed S.K. military networks for 20 days

Original Article From: Donga.com

The South Korean military authority has decided to discipline 26 people involved in the case that presumably North Korean hackers penetrated South Korea’s military intranet and Intranet (military network) and robbed en masse classified military information, including materials containing the South Korea-U.S. allied forces’ wartime operation plans, for the first time in military history in September last year.

The military prosecution announced on Tuesday the results of investigation that they conducted by forming a task force in December last year. According to the results, the 26 people to be disciplined include six field officer and officer-level officers from the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Special Warfare Command that provided a cause for the leaks of military intelligence. It is suspected that they failed to follow the security regulations when preparing documents on classified military information. Those against whom disciplinary actions are sought included Byun Jae-seon, commander of the Military Cyber Command, and head of the Defense Integrated Data Center, who allegedly provided “interface” that allowed the hackers to spared malign codes into even the defense network by intermixing the Internet and the defense network.
