Because of North Korea's close ties with Iran, supplying missile and nuclear technology, conflict there could light a short fuse to the Middle East.


With tensions rising daily between America and North Korea, the US has finally had enough and is sending B-52 Nuclear Bombers to South Korea. Some analysts believe the move could lead to opening shots in a war with North Korea.

Secretary of Defence James Mattis said the US “remains steadfast in its commitment” to the defence of the South, according to Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt Jeff Davis.

Captain Davis said Mattis "further emphasised that any attack on the United States or its allies will be defeated and any use of nuclear weapons will be met with a response that is effective and overwhelming.”

The trigger for this build-up was North Korea’s firing of four ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan. The Japanese do not have a serious army due to agreements after World War 2 and rely heavily on the US East Asian Security Umbrella. With tensions rising, some Japanese lawmakers wanted to amend their constitution to allow for a more aggressive army.

Will There Be War?

With the Trump administration willing to serously bolster up its forces in South Korea, the theory is that North Korean President Kim Jong-un is a paper tiger who will back down because his own generals do not want to “commit suicide” against the United States.

On the other hand, it could that North Korea's personality cult, essentially deifying Kim Jong-un and his father, has poisoned the minds of the country's upper staff to the point that they are all willing to die.

Because of the real possibility of direct conflict, the USA is sending F-35B stealth fighters from its marine corps base in Japan to South Korea. These fighters jets can easily evade North Korean radars to deliver devastating strikes on the North.

Connection to Iran

Most analysts and observers admit that Iran and North Korea have been working very closely together for some time. North Korea develops the technology that Iran uses for its ballistic missiles and nuclear programs. Iran then fine tunes the technology for its needs.

It is no accident that Iran just launched its own ballistic missiles test in the last few days. With this in mind the looming North Korean conflict may develop into something far larger, which is why Trump and his team want to give a quick knock out blow to the Northern regime.
