North Korea may be planning October Surprise, study says
Mon October 3, 2016


If history is any guide, provocative actions from North Korea can be expected around the time of US elections, a new study says.

Over the past 60 years, North Korea's leaders have attempted to incite tensions around the time of American elections -- especially in recent years, the study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies says.

For example, North Korea conducted a missile test and then a nuclear test shortly after President Barack Obama was elected.

"Doing a major test would be a way of trying to intimidate the incoming president," said Victor Cha, one of the study's authors. "North Korea chooses particular windows that they know will gain maxmum attention from the world, and the US in particular."

"It could be a sixth nuclear test, it could be launching of their rocket which put a satellite in orbit," Cha added.

The study is scheduled to be published this week on the CSIS website Beyond Parallel.

But some analysts see a shift in North Korea's provocations, from symbolic actions to concrete military tests, since Kim Jong Un took power after his father's death in 2011. These analysts see a decrease in deadly provocations that are primarily symbolic, such as the 2010 shelling of the disputed South Korean island Yeonpyeong, or the 2010 sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan with a torpedo.

Only one has occurred recently -- the placing of land mines in the demilitarized zone, which injured two South Korean soldiers last year.

"Nothing as aggressive as we saw under his father," said Ken Gause, who analyzes North Korea's leaders for CNA Corp. "Kim Jong Un, with the exception of the August crisis of last year, he has pretty much restricted his provocations to missile tests, nuclear tests, and cyber attacks."

Is it that time of the year already? Art of the Arms deal by the Peach Panther himself.
Both Russian and US arms dealers hit the phones.


Hong Kong (CNN)Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was thousands of miles away from home, but Kim Jong Un's message was loud and clear -- think twice before getting too cozy with the new US President. Abe, who is visiting the United States, and Japan were likely the main audience for North Korea's Sunday missile launch. "Considering the launch was immediately after the Japan-US summit meeting was held, this is a clear provocation to Japan and the region," Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.

...

"This is clearly directed at Japan," said Carl Schuster, a professor at Hawaii Pacific University and former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center.
Though South Korea worries about any developments in Pyongyang's missile and nuclear capabilities, experts note that the rhetoric from the North has been much quieter and less hostile since the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.

Expert Claims North Korea May Use Submarines For Attacks


As North Korea marks the 105th anniversary of the birth of state founder Kim Il Sung on Saturday, fears of an impending military attack from Kim Jong Un’s regime during the “Day of the Sun” have begun to emerge.

One particular cause for concern, a security expert has revealed, are the North Korean submarines which went off radar two years ago.

It is feared that Kim Jong Un may be ramping up his military’s underwater force, with plans of modifying the “missing” vessels to be able to launch nuclear missiles from underwater.
