Christopher Coke Against the US, or the Global Elite and Narcotics

The Conundrum of the South Korean Corvette (I)

"Seoul has unveiled the results of the investigation into the sinking of the Cheonan corvette in the Yellow Sea on March 26. According to the report put together by a commission of South Korean military and unnamed experts from the US, Canada, Great Britain, and Sweden, Cheonan was sunk as the result of an external underwater explosion caused by a torpedo made in the DPRK. Considering that the blast was allegedly caused by a torpedo carrying a net explosive weight of 250 kg, investigators must have been remarkably lucky to find the right fragment with the marking implicating North Korea. The simple marking “№ 1”, which is the sole indication of the country of origin of the torpedo, possibly could write in the same manner on a South Korean torpedo too. The spin-off of the version offered by the report commenced immediately upon its being circulated, and there is a distinct impression that the developments are following an a priori blueprint..."

Kim Jong-il In China (I)

"Kim Jong-il's “unofficial” tour across China's northern provinces early this May was loaded with symbolism. It was his fifth visit to the country which in fact acts as the DPRK's only remaining partner in international politics... Western watchers are convinced that Kim Jong-il's younger son – 27-year old Kim Jong-un who has been nominated to key posts in the Communist Party and the National Defense Commission over the past several months– is already being orbited as his father's successor..."

Unrevealed Aspects of START III

"It became known almost immediately after the new START treaty was inked that the US had successfully tested its X-31 unpiloted spaceplane which would in the future serve as a space platform for high accuracy delivery vehicles carrying non-nuclear (or, potentially, nuclear) munitions. The system – an aero-ballistic capsule - is supposed to minimize the flight time during an attack against Russian strategic forces (!) and thus should definitely be regarded as a destabilizing weapon..."

Obama reportedly instructed his war cabinet last month that it might be time to start negotiations with the Taliban, overruling the assumption that peace talks should be deferred until McChrystal degraded the Taliban militarily..."
