If there's one sure way to infuriate the North Koreans, it's to talk of "regime collapse" and "contingency planning". As far as Pyongyang is concerned, such speculation is proof positive of United States-led plotting of a "pre-emptive strike".
Against this background, one should not be surprised if the North Koreans see a study conducted by Rand Corporation analyst Bruce Bennett and Dartmouth College scholar Jennifer Lind as the most conclusive evidence to date that the planning is in an advanced stage. Considering Rand's contracts with the U.S. defense establishment, one has to perceive the study as a scenario for an invasion of the North that would plunge the Korean Peninsula into a second Korean War. Lind offers specific estimates of what it would take to seize North Korea's nuclear facilities and disarm the entire North Korean defense establishment as if the collapse of the North Korean regime were almost certain and the U.S. had to lead the charge to fill the vacuum. The study offers a raft of figures on the exact number of troops needed to subdue North Korea 400,000 seems to be the operative figure with six brigades of troops dispatched right away to address the "paramount problem upon the North Korean collapse" "the prevention of loose nukes".

Massive air drop leaflets stating that two container ships filled with reefer boxes full of steaks await off the coast once they disarm.
Secondary freighters are bringing in the mesquite & potatoes for the BBQ.
Well.....technically the first one never ended.
The Rand Corp report would seem to be part of the psyops campaign. There are contingency plans made and updated for every situation hat can be imagined. They are normally not made public.
On June 26th, it will be 60 years since the star of the Korean War.
And it is not over yet.
The Norks are way past due for their beatdown. We keep kicking the can down the road, whiole they export arms and terror weapons that will be used against us.
The whole situation is beyond ridiculous.
They’re gonna air drop massive containers of reefer with steaks?
Whoa, cool, dude! I just knew this administration was gonna be the BEST party like EV—ERRRR!!!!!!!!!!!
Umm...can somebody make us a whole s**tload of steak pizzas?
Oh, and some brew-skies, too.
I have no doubt it is a real study. What makes it different and probably psyops is its release.
