Intelligence Insider Warns of Imminent War and the Public May Not Understand the Seriousness of the Looming Threat

It's normal to be fearful of the future, especially knowing there's an unpredictable and dangerous ruler in North Korea. Many Americans have begun to plan for the worst by building bunkers or purchasing them and it turns out they may have good reason to do so. Check out what some government officials are saying below:

Having worked closely with U.S. intelligence agencies over the last two decades, James Rickards was once asked to simulate asymmetric economic attacks on the U.S. financial system. He is an expert at escalation scenarios and end games, and in a recent article at The Daily Reckoning he warns that the geopolitical situation on the Korean Peninsula will soon come to a head.

The most important financial or geopolitical issue in the world today is a coming war between the U.S. and North Korea, probably in the next twelve weeks.

How can I be so sure about the timing? The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency told me.

In a private conclave in Washington DC on October 20, 2017, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told a small think tank group (including me) that it would be imprudent to assume it would take North Korea more than ‘five months’ to have a reliable arsenal of nuclear-armed ICBM missiles. These could strike U.S. cities and kill millions of Americans.

Five months from October 20, 2017 is March 20, 2018. That’s an outside date but the war will likely begin before then.

That would create an element of surprise — and avoid the surprise of a faster than expected deployment of strategic weapons by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Some have suggested that Kim may be bluffing, but what if he isn’t?

The Trump administration has made it crystal clear that they are prepared to call the bluff and a nuclear armed North Korea, especially one with ICMB’s capable of striking major U.S. cities, will not be allowed. Rickards continues:

We relied on deterrence, containment, sanctions, diplomacy, and eventually arms treaties to avoid a nuclear war. Why not do the same with Kim?

President Trump’s National Security Advisor, General H. R. McMaster answered that question at our Washington conclave also.

He said acceptance of a nuclear-armed North Korea is ‘unacceptable’. The U.S. will stop North Korea from acquiring its nuclear capability in the first place rather than learning to live it.

The general public may not understand the seriousness of the threat, but it appears that someone out there does.

China, Russia, the United States and North Korea are all mobilizing for a coming war.

From what you've read and heard in the news, do you feel a war is imminent? We never know what may happen in the future, but if government officials are saying there's an indication that a war is coming we must be on our toes. That's why so many of us plan ahead for a SHTF situation — we want to be ready for whatever comes our way. And yes, even a war with North Korea is one potential catastrophe we may have to deal with.

    What wouldn’t the public understand about the Korean War? It’s been going on for over half a century. Elementary school kids know what the Korean War is.

    Fun Fact

    Iranian President Ahmadinejad, on television, publicly stated that Iran would aid North Korea’s missile program

    We lifted sanctions on Iran

    North Korea had a sudden leap in missile technology

    … yes… out of mother #%$&ing “magic”. You got it. Here’s a cookie.

    As anyone thought why these$#%&!@*hole countries are launching these missiles and not having re- entry codes? That’s right. Because a EMP is detonated high above our atmosphere over our country causing way more damage than if it exposed a few thousand feet above the intended targets.

    Please, stop terrorizing people with these war doomsday$#%&!@* The US and their closest allies already have the means to intercept ballistic missiles, and the US already has LASER weapon systems capable of engaging and destroying targets in mid-flight.

    And if it’s the case that the US is striken with nuclear arsenals, there would be automatic retaliation in the same form (but a few times fold). No would-be agressor(s) would want to take that risk.

    Also, if a full out war actually breaks out, it will more than likely be fought in foreign soil, or at worst in Alaska and/or US unincorporated territories. The collateral demage to the US would be near insignificant compared to that done against any agressor(s)…
