In early December 2019, Kim Jong Un promised the United States and its people a “gift”. Interestingly, the nature of that gift was left unspecified. Many experts speculated that the “gift” would be some type of intercontinental missile launch or nuclear warhead explosion. However, no such “gift” of that kind occurred.
As I scanned the news reports, I was struck by the lack of curiosity about the nature and purpose of the “gift”. In only one instance was the prospect that the “gift” might in some way be connected to the Chicom coronavirus pandemic noted. What did Kim know? What did he do? What did the Chicoms know? What did they do? Is this all just a horrible mistake or an act of unspeakable evil?
The relations between the Chinese government and the North Korean government is one of big brother and little brother. There are extensive cross border political, cultural, economic and military interactions. (Notably, the Korean War involved millions of Chinese troops sacrificing to defend what is now North Korean territory. North Korea may be a nation, but it is not independent of China.)
The contagion is recorded as having started in the Wuhan area of China where there are bioweapons, health and virology facilities. The South China University of Technology released a paper on the origins of the coronavirus, and concluded that the disease was probably created by the Wuhan Center for Disease Control (WCDC) and/or the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The Wuhan Center for Disease Control is located near the Wuhan Seafood Wholesale “Wet Market”, and is near the local hospital. But what if it didn’t start there?
The relationship between Iran and North Korea is well known and involves an extensive weapons trade. Iran was the first country in the middle east to experience contagion “hot spot” status. China as well as North Korea have substantial business relationships with Iran. Significantly, China’s business activity generally involves oil while North Korea’s is political survival. Did the Chinese or North Korean folks inadvertently spread the coronavirus virus to Iran?
Most “experts” have concluded that this pandemic involved either a bioweapon research accident or an unfortunate release of a natural deadly coronavirus that evolve in the Wuhan wet market. But what if it wasn’t a mistake? The Chicoms have no compunction about sacrificing large numbers of their Chinese subjects. Mao dispensed with over 70 million of them during his reign of tyranny. The sacrifice of a few hundred thousand or even millions is of little consequence if the overall China supremacy objective is furthered. (So far, the Chicoms have managed to thoroughly destabilize the economies of the Western world and the United States in particular.)
But what if this was Kim’s doing? It is highly doubtful that the Chicoms would sacrifice their key pawn in the region. And, if by some reason treachery was discovered, it could be blamed on Kim. (Best to keep him in reserve and quiet while all of this plays out. Kim is so quiet that there is literally nothing coming from North Korea regarding the Wuhan coronavirus or anything else.)
The Chicoms have effectively admitted their culpability and are now busily trying to shift the blame through a propaganda blitz. Significantly, the Chicoms have banned all investigation into the origin of the coronavirus. They have kicked out Western news organizations and disappeared their own doctors. They have stopped reporting on pandemic cases and deaths.
But here is my quandary – what about the “gift”?
