Kim Jong-Un May Meet Putin Prior to Russian War ‘Games’ on 9/11

Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a letter to Kim Jong-Un of North Korea by way of a Russian diplomat, as reported on 9/8/18 by RT News. Here’s an excerpt:

Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko gave a letter from President Vladimir Putin to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during a Russian delegation’s visit to Pyongyang.

The North’s leader wishes to visit Russia after receiving Putin’s message on Saturday. The time and venue for such a meeting will be discussed by the countries’ diplomats, but Kim does not want to put it off, Matvienko said.

Interesting. Also very interesting is the fact of the upcoming Vostok 2018 military exercises coming up on September 11 and lasting a week or more. This will be the largest military exercise conducted by Russia since Zapad 81, an exercise conducted in 1981 with approximately 150,000 troops. Vostok 2018 will feature joint military maneuvers (naval, air, and ground) between Russia and China. Sergei Shoigu, the Russian Defense Minister has characterized the event (scheduled for 5 days) as a “Snap” drill. On April 8, 2014, U.S. Joint Staff J5, Vice Admiral Frank Pandolfe gave a briefing to the House Armed Services Committee that defines Snap Exercises, as such:

“…the Russian military adopted doctrinal change, placing greater emphasis on speed of movement, the use of Special Operations Forces, and information and cyber warfare.  They instituted ‘snap exercises.’  These no-notice drills serve the dual purpose of sharpening military readiness while also inducing strategic uncertainty as to whether they will swiftly transition from training to offensive operations.”

The point to keep in mind is that (as evidenced with the seizure of Crimea in 2014) a Snap exercise can transform into a real operation at any time. For the size and scale of this exercise (the largest ever conducted in Russia), here is an excerpt from an article by Business Insider on 8/28/18:

Over 1,000 aircraft, almost 300,000 servicemen at almost all the training ranges of the Central and Eastern Military Districts and, naturally, the Pacific and Northern Fleets and the Airborne Force will be fully employed. Russian forces will not be the only ones taking part this time around. Chinese and Mongolian units will also take part, with Beijing reportedly sending more than 3,000 troops, 30 helicopters, and more than 900 pieces of other military hardware.

Meanwhile things are precariously balanced in Syria without much being reported on it. The U.S. weighs in quietly, however, and as is evidenced by this excerpt from Sputnik News on 9/8/18, the country is still a major “sticking point” between U.S. and Russian relations:

The Russian Defense Ministry stated earlier that terrorists in the rebel-held Syrian city of Idlib have almost completed their preparations for a provocation involving chemical weapons. The US is ready to put forward its own plan to effectively fight terrorism in Syria and it is not going to cooperate with Russia on the issue, the Pentagon said in a statement. According to Gen. Joseph Dunford, he has not spoken with his Russian counterpart, Army General Valery Gerasimov, since the crisis in Idlib began and that he does not plan to communicate with him yet. The Pentagon spokesman has also reported that, according to estimates, about 20-30 thousand terrorists have entered Idlib to “hide among hundreds of thousands of people” who have fled violence in other areas of Syria.

And why would the U.S. cooperate, as ISIS was a creation of the State Department, and the policy has not changed toward deposing Assad? The U.S. cannot cooperate with Russia on the issue, as they would be fighting the very insurgency they created. This did not originate under the President’s watch, and it is another key indicator that holdouts in Congress, the State Department, and the military command structure are still well-ensconced in positions that determine U.S. foreign policy in such matters.

Also on the table is the fact that from an economic perspective, Russia and China have been dumping a substantial amount of U.S. debt in the form of Treasury securities. The President has been making a lot of headway, but it is difficult to overcome the eight years under Obama in a short period of time. Add to that the fact that our foreign policy is truly undefined. North Korea quietly slipped away from the spotlight: after the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un, the “North Korea Must Denuclearize!/CARTHAGO DELENDA EST! mantra has quieted and almost vanished.

It must be stated that North Korea does possess the capability to strike the United States with a nuclear weapon, and it has the capability to launch an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon against us. We need to keep a close eye upon these military exercises by Russia, China, and Mongolia, and remember the potential for them to “go live” at a moment’s notice. The meeting between Putin and Un could be related to this, and let it not be forgotten that these nations have a tendency to strike on significant dates, such as 9/11…the planned commencement of the military exercise.

        North Korea’s Missile Tests Are Garbage

        NK’s current missile program poses a Kim-Jong-unrealistic threat

        by Korvin Kennington

        August 2, 2017, 5:43 am

        Escalating tensions between reclusive North Korea and the rest of the world have been dubbed by many as the “New Cold War”—wherein the viability of peaceable negotiation has long since been abandoned. No doubt, the prospect of the aptly named “Rogue Nation” to launch nuclear warheads onto American cities is alarming, and the overstated capabilities of the regime by media sensationalists does little to accurately estimate their true capability. {{{{ However, there is currently no concrete evidence for North Korea’s ability to successfully launch anything but a local missile strike.}}}

        And:
        So-called media experts and talking heads often push the narrative that an ICBM threat to the U.S. is imminent, while neglecting to emphasize that none of these missile tests have yet been successful. The latest Hwasong-14 ICBM lacks re-entry technology, meaning their current technology is only capable of launching a cylindrical tube into space and not much else. Their recent and most “successful” test saw the disintegration of the missile as it re-entered the atmosphere. Not only that, but it’s highly doubtful that the North Koreans even have the technology to guide and detonate a missile capable of actually hitting the U.S, should re-entry technology be developed.

        So JJ, you are a Freaking Scumbag Flat out Liar.

    • TharSheBlows says:

      HERE IS ANNOTHER FLAT OUT LIE BY JJ: HE NEEDS TO BE BANNED FROM THIS SITE FOR LYING TO SHTFPLAN READERS.

      “The point to keep in mind is that (as evidenced with the seizure of Crimea in 2014) a Snap exercise can transform into a real operation at any time. For the size and scale of this exercise (the largest ever conducted in Russia), here is an excerpt from an article by Business Insider on 8/28/18:”

      FACTOID: CRIMEA WAS NOT SEIZED BY RUSSIA. NOR WS IT SEIZED UNDER ANY SORT OF MILITARY EXERCISE. IN FACT RUSSIA HAS A 40 YEAR LEASE IN CRIMEA TO HOUSE THEIR NAVEL BASE IN THE BLACK SEA. WHEN THE ATTEMPTED COUP BY WESTERN FORCES INTO CRIMEA, RUSSIA MOVED SLOWLY INTO CRIMEA WITHOUT FIRING A SINGLE SHOT, SECURINNG THEIR NAVEL BASE SO IT WAS NOT OVER RUN AND SEIZED MY WESTERN INVADERS. THOSE LIVING IN CRIMEA ARE WAY MORE RUSSIA FRIENDLY THAN WITH THEN WEST AND VOTED YES TO BE ANNEXED TO RUSSSIA. AND IGNORAMOUSES LIKE JJ CANT STAND THE TRUTH AND LIES TO CREATE A FALSE REASON FOR MORE WAR.

      SO HOW MANY COUNTRIES HAS THE US SEIZED WITH SECURING THEIR 1000+ MILITARY BASES WITHIN OVER 200 COUNTRIES?? LOOKS LIKE THE US IS ALSO TRYING TO SIEZE AFRICA WITH MORE MILITARY BASES OPENING UP THERE, ACCORDING TO JJ.S STADARDS. RUSSIA, NOR N KOREA NOR SYRIA IS A THREAT. MORE BS BY LYING SCUMBAD JARHEAD JHNSON IGNRAMOUSS WAR MONGERING POS SCUMBAG.

      Crimea

      Ukraine crisis: why Russia sees Crimea as its naval stronghold

      Recent events

      On Thursday, Crimean ministers held a vote in their regional parliament to join the Russian Federation and secede from Ukraine, and to organize a referendum on the issue for 16 March. The move comes as international tensions continue to mount over the presence of Russian troops in the peninsula, which reportedly now number 30,000.

      Why does Russia have a naval base in Crimea?

      • Geographic limitations and ambitions: Russia’s capacity to reach the sea is limited by geography, so ports in the north and south seas, leading to larger waters, are crucial.

      As the map below illustrates, Sevastopol is a strategically important base for Russia’s naval fleet, in addition to being Russia’s only warm water base. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a 1997 treaty with Ukraine allowed Russia to keep its Black Sea Fleet pretty much intact (with 15,000 personnel currently stationed) and lease the base at Sevastopol (extended to expire in 2042).

      MAP- ht tps://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/07/ukraine-russia-crimea-naval-base-tatars-explainer

      • Projecting power: Sevastopol has been an important hub to project Russia’s naval power on a global platform. The Black Sea Fleet has seen a flurry of activity since 2008: during the war with Georgia that year, the fleet staged blockades in the Black Sea. The Russian navy was actively engaged with Vietnam, Syria and Venezuela (and up until March 2011, Libya) “for logistics and repair services in their principal ports”. It has also been alleged that Sevastopol has served as the main source in supplying the Assad regime during Syria’s civil war and proved useful with Russia’s role in dismantling Syria’s chemical weapons last year. After Syria’s civil war forced Russia to stop using its naval base in the Syrian port of Tartus last year, Sevastopol became even more crucial.

      **SO YOU SEE FOLKS THIS LAYING SCUM JJ COMES ON HERE AND SLINGS OUT THESE PHONY NARTIVES LIKE WE ARE STUPID, AND WHAT WE NEED TO DO HERE IS US SHTFPLAN READERS BAN TOGETHER AND ASK MAC TO BOYCOTT JJ LYING SCUMS PHONY ATICLES. JJ LIES HIS ASS OFF, AND NOW IS FOLLOWING THE NEOCON WAR MONGERING AGENDA TRYING TO POLLUTE THE MASSES WITH HIS FABRICATED PRO WAR PROPAGANDA. TIME TO KICK THE CAMEL OUT OF THE TENT. WHAT IS JJ HIDING BY USING THIS FAKE JERAMIA JOHNSON NAME? HE IS A FAKE WRITER, USING A FAKE NAME POSTING LIES. WE DESERVE BETTER MAC. BAN THIS LIAR A-HOLE.

  2. Maranatha says:

    The least expensive way for China to deal with Kim is disappearing him or declaring he died of a sudden illness. Then install a new puppet.

    Russia may not go along with it. They want those Rare Earth minerals as much as China.

    What they may elect to do is encourage Kim to act provocatively like send infiltrators across the hidden tunnels of the DMZ. Then they expose it and backstab Kim and trigger a coup, then Russia can’t say much. Have them with germ warfare weapons having an “orgy of evidence”.

    This would not be difficult though North Korean loyalist soldiers are liable to be fanatical as that’s how they afford to live.

    I would either before open warfare. That gains nothing for China and they need to recoup their investment.

  3. aljamo says:

    DR…That would be common sense, something the US controllers do not have in mind. The American people are highly complacent, out of sight and out of mind. Every lie left unchallenged the American way.

    STOP SUPPORTING TERRORISTS AND TERRORIST STATES LIKE ISRAHELL
    The Netanyahu Regime Secretly Arming and Funding 12 or More Terrorist Groups in Syria
    Written by Stephen Lendman Date: 09-07-2018 Subject: IsraHELL
    Netanyahu Regime Secretly Arming and Funding 12 or More Terrorist Groups in Syria
    On September 6, FP discussed Israhell’s “secret program to back Syrian rebels” – code name for cutthroat killer terrorists, supported by the Trump and Netanyahu regimes, along with NATO, and anti-Assad regional states, including Turkey.
    Throughout Washington’s war in Syria, now in its 8th year, falsely called civil, the US and its imperial allies sought regime change – wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing Syrian sovereign independence, Iran isolated ahead of a plot to topple its legitimate government.
    That’s what imperialism is all about, seeking dominance over other countries, naked aggression a favored strategy.
    FP’s report was picked up by Haaretz, the Times of Israhell, and other Israeli media.
    According to FP, “Israhell secretly armed and funded at least 12 rebel groups in southern Syria that helped prevent Iran-backed fighters and militants of the Islamic State from taking up positions near the Israhelli border in recent years, according to more than two dozen commanders and rank-and-file members of these groups.”
    Fact: Iran has military advisors in Syria, not combat troops, aiding Assad fight US supported terrorists.
    Fact: The Islamic Republic threatens no other countries, not Israhell or any others. Claims otherwise are bald-faced lies.
    Fact: Israhell actively supports ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorist groups in Syria – in cahoots with Washington to topple Assad.
    Fact: By its own admission, Israhelli warplanes terror-bombed Syrian sites over 200 times in the last 18 months alone – allied with US aggression for regime change.
    Fact: Israhell gives aid and comfort to cutthroat killer terrorists, including by treating their wounded in a frontline field hospital.
    Fact: Israhelli support for terrorists in Syria continues. The same goes for Washington and its other imperial partners.
    According to FP, Israhell provided terrorists in Syria with weapons, monthly salaries, and other material support.
    The Netanyahu regime lied, repeatedly claiming Israhell is not involved in the Syrian conflict. It very much remains involved, especially ahead of what looms to be the mother of all battles in the country to liberate Idlib province from countless thousands of al-Nusra and other terrorists.
    Throughout much of the war, Syrian forces found foreign-supplied light and heavy weapons in liberated areas – including US and Israhelli ones.
    According to FP, Israhell supplied terrorists in Syria with assault rifles, machine guns, mortar launchers, and vehicles – increasing its support in recent months since last year.
    An unnamed terrorist cited and quoted by FP said anti-Assad fighters expected direct Israeli intervention to help and protect them, adding:
    Israhell’s failure to do it “is a lesson we will not forget…(The chewish state) does not care about…the people. It does not care about humanity. All it cares about it its own interests.”

    ***WE NEED TO DROP DOZENS OF NUKES ON THIS POS TEL AVIV REGIME. YOU WANT WORLD PEACE, DESTROY THESE FU@KERS ASAP, AND 90% OF THE GLOBAL PROBLEMS WOULD BE SOLVED.

    • Daniel Johnson says:

      Tharsheblows sounds like a real apologist for Russia’s misdeeds. We all know there have been plenty of those. J.J. has had some great articles on prepping with information we can use. Some times the tendency to blame Obama for every thing creeps into his articles. Other than that,I would say keep up the good work J.J.

      • TharSheBlows says:

        Daniel sounds like you are an apologist for the same lefty lying scumbag main stream media. All Fake and fraud. You and JJ will get along great. Politics an world affairs is not JJ’s strengths. He needs to stick to simpleton stuff like, making bread and feeding his 3 cats.

  9. Maranatha says:

    In a sense, the Mongols took over China in 1279. They intermarried with a variety of Asian people who live in China today. They dominated the Joseon whose descendantsmake up Koreans today.

    Not much has genuinely changed.

  10. Anonymous says:

    North Korea doesn’t have the ability to hit the United States and an “EMP” weapon would have to be so huge to overcome the inverse square law and remain effective anywhere except directly beneath it, if it was even very effective there, as to make the idea of using one on us to cripple the nation a joke (thousands of them used simultaneously maybe, but there is no reason to believe anyone anywhere has or can deliver that many).

    • Maranatha says:

      See shipping containers and the lack of inspections. Or EMP satellite platforms.

      Either could the issue. They lack adequate naval tech for a sub based EMP launch.

      Actually, the North Koreans had a long range ICBM in the eighties, just not many of them. Now they use an EMP payload.

      Technically you need three to blanket from high altitude and that would put the continental USA back to 19th century tech with 90% deaths in a year’s time due to famines, accidents, mortality from untreated chronic conditions, total lack of transportation, etc.

      Every urban zone would be a death zone to inadequate carrying capacity. Fleeing people would harm some small communities on the periphery of these.
