Breaking: China Now Planning To Invade North Korea
China will invade North Korea if they believe North Korea has developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can be placed atop a ballistic missile.
Trunews reported: According to a DIA official assigned specifically to monitor North Korea, the secret "working" agreement was negotiated as an unofficial understanding between the two superpowers, and could result in a Chinese invasion of the Korean Peninsula between now and September 11th.
The source, who spoke to TruNews Correspondent Edward Szall through a proxy on Sunday night, and must remain unnamed due to his official capacity as a veteran member of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), said both the U.S. and China are actively investigating the claims made by North Korea on Sunday, that they have successfully tested a miniaturized nuclear device and possess the technology to effectively mount it on a ballistic missile.
The source noted that if the Chinese are convinced the warhead North Korean state media showed Kim Jong-un inspecting Sunday at the “Nuclear Weapons Institute” is indeed a miniaturized homemade hydrogen bomb, they will launch an invasion of North Korea and annex it within the next week.
"If China rolls their army into North Korea, and annexes the country in the next week, we know he [Kim Jong-un] had miniaturized nukes,” the DIA source said.
Pressed about the timing of China's prospective attack, the DIA official said ominously: "You'll know in the next week."
The DIA is an external intelligence service of the U.S. government which answers directly to Secretary of Defense James Mattis, and is responsible for approximately twenty five percent of all intelligence content that goes into President Trump's Daily Brief.
On Monday South Korea’s defense chief Song Young-moo told lawmakers that the military suspects North Korea may have secured technology to produce miniaturized nuclear warheads that weigh less than 500 kilograms.
During a UN Security Council emergency meeting Monday in New York, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Kim Jong Un was "begging for war" as she urged the unelected body to adopt the “strongest sanctions measures” possible to stop Pyongyang's nuclear program.
China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang responded Monday that China had made “stern representations” with North Korean diplomats following Sunday’s sixth and largest nuclear test at Pyongyang’s Punggye-ri site. He also said that all parties should “refrain from further escalating tensions”.
Neither China nor the U.S. have independently confirmed North Korea’s Hydrogen bomb claims, but a Chinese seismic research team led by Wen Lianxing of the University of Science and Technology of China announced Monday that they had measured Sunday's nuclear test at 108.3±48.1 kilotons, making Pyongyang’s device up to eight times more powerful than the nuclear bomb the U.S. dropped on Nagasaki, Japan in 1945.
The DIA source noted that America’s only leverage against China in this situation is the “complete and utter destruction” of North Korea, which the Chinese do not want.
The source explained that China wants North Korea’s territory in one piece to preserve the nations untapped mineral resources, which they plan to extract, utilize and profit from.
"They do not want the U.S. to nuke North Korea, and want to be given the option to intervene before the situation reaches that flash point."
In September 2016, South Korea’s state-run Korea Development Institute said that the mineral trade between North Korea and China remains a “cash cow” for Kim Jong-un despite UN sanctions, and that it accounted for 54% of Pyongyang’s total trade volume to China in the first half of that year.
In 2015 alone China imported $1 billion in coal from North Korea, as well as $73 million in iron ore, and $680,000 worth of zinc.
This also explains why China opposes a full international trade embargo of North Korea, a move the Editor-in-Chief of the state-influenced Global Times said would make Beijing the primary target for North Korean retaliation, and allow the U.S. and South Korean alliance to shift responsibility of the nuclear issue to China.
North Korea’s rare earth mineral reserves, which include large quantities of iron, gold, magnesite, zinc, copper, limestone, molybdenum and graphite, all necessary for the production of smartphones and other high tech products, are estimated to be valued between $6 trillion and $10 trillion.
INVASION SOUTH WOULD FAIL
The DIA source said Sunday that the Chinese and the U.S. both believe an invasion of North Korea by China from their border in the North would force civilians, North Korean military and government officials southward to the DMZ, and even into South Korea itself, where they would be rounded up and detained by prepositioned U.S. and South Korean military units.
Regarding the North Korean military, which is estimated to have almost a million soldiers, the source said they are in horrific shape, and that as an offensive force, North Korea is currently "ineffective". Check out our source here.
