North Korea Could Be Sat On Trillions of Dollars Worth of Mineral Reserves
Over the past week tensions have increased between The United States and North Korea, with President Trump threatening North Korea with ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen before’. This threat came after reports that North Korea had again launched an ICBM missile. The Korean Central News Agency reported, soon after these threats were issued from Trump, that Noth Korea were “seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”
With tensions ever rising it’s important to remain focused on the bigger picture in play here. There is little doubt that North Korea is under a dictatorship and regime that needs to come to an end, it’s clear there are countless human rights violations happening within the country and that the North Korean people are oppressed, however last month we published an article titled: What You’re Not Being Told About The Recent North Korean ICBM Tests and in that article we outlined how the United States are using old information and intelligence to report it as new and significant threats.
To state that America and it’s allies simply want to help the North Korean people as a selfless act is not true. There are legitimate reasons why America has reason to fear North Korea, it would be unwise to suggest that we known the mind of Kim Jong-Un. With that being said we have to analyse what we known from previous conflicts with other countries. It can now be said with certainty that the recent war in Iraq was based on lies and false information, it’s also clear that the plentiful oil reserves and resources in the middle east certainly played apart in the West’s agenda to occupy Middle Eastern countries.
The Independent this week published an article, detailing how North Korea could potentially be sat on trillions of dollars worth of untapped mineral resources. These resources include coal, iron ore, magnesite, gold ore, zinc ore, copper ore, limestone, molybdenite, graphite and tungsten, all with potential for the development of large-scale mines. It is thought that 54 per cent of North Korea’s total trade volume to China is related to mineral trade.
This information is important to keep in mind, if we learn from history it is clear that a countries natural reserves do play a significant role in deciding on what wars western governments choose to pick. It is clear that America have an ambition to remain the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world and that does not come without conflict over time. It is worth remembering this when the United States tried to feed a false narrative as they have done in the past to justify war in other countries.
