Surprisingly, I do not write of Millwall Football Club and their admirable bunch of fans; although much can and has been written about that massed adoration society. Instead, I write about NorK, their build-up and acquisition of both nuclear and missile technology.
It is rumoured that all NorK wants is to be acknowledged as a fully-fledged member of the Nuke/Missile club, to be invited to negotiate with America as equals, and let the stupid, silly liberal West feed the starving millions while the Norks continue their military build-up.
The latest missile test, again fired over, well over, the Japanese island of Hokkaido, is typical of NorK’s reply to a virtually impotent and frustrated West’s anger and annoyance. The UN Security Council is called into emergency session once more, but whatever they call for, China will not turn the oil taps off, because the Chinese fear two things above all. Chaos and revolution in NorK, followed swiftly by a mountainous flood of refugees heading China-wards, and a emboldened South Korea heading northwards, assisted and egged on by an America whose troops would stop only at the Chinese border: or a desperate throw by NorK with whatever he has in his armoury, nukes and all, in the hope that America will back away from Armageddon.
China cannot afford to chop the oil off, because the power stations will run down, the population, downtrodden and fearful though they may be, might, just might, try and take out the real reason for their nation’s pariah status, chubby Kim himself, and remembering that all the NorK army has family, and they just might demur from doing a Tiananmen Square routine on their brothers, cousins and ordinary NorKs.
Sanctions from the rest of the world mean nothing, but if China acts, prepare for the fastest obliteration of cities, armies and L’il Kim as well!
