Red alert over bizarre North Korean plan to attack G20 summit with balloons filled chemical weapons
Daily Mail ^ | Friday, November 12, 2010 | James Chapman

Posted on 11/13/2010 8:36:03 PM PST by SunkenCiv

A bizarre plot by North Korea to attack the G20 summit using balloons filled with biological or chemical weapons emerged last night.

The claim that ageing tyrant Kim Jong-Il will attempt to disrupt the gathering -- attended by David Cameron and other world leaders -- has been taken seriously by Western diplomats.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has asked China, North Korea's chief ally, to rein in Kim. And security is now at red alert for the conference in the South Korean capital Seoul.

Kim Jong-Un, Kim's third son and expected successor, is thought to have been ordered to find ways to overshadow the meeting.

His father's secretive regime has acted aggressively in the past at times of internal change, external tension or when the rival South is the focus of world attention.

In 1987, North Korean agents planted a bomb on a South Korean plane, killing all 115 people on board, a year before Seoul hosted the Olympics.

In 1983, they carried out a bombing during a trip to Burma by the South Korean president, Chun Doo-hwan.

South Korean websites quoted claims that the North had considered sending 20 different deadly biochemical weapons attached to balloons and parachutes across the border.

The campaign is said to be led by General Kim Kyok-Sik, who commands the North's frontline corps, at the orders of Kim's heir apparent.

Other possibilities were said to include sending floating mines into South Korean waters.

Although China's presence at the summit is expected to deter the young pretender from launching a direct attack, diplomatic sources said some show of strength was possible.

Among the most likely are a symbolic incursion into South Korean territorial waters or testing a missile in nearby airspace.

Oh..I guess it’s the guy behind him. His hand is visible where Hussein’s elbow should be and it makes his right arm look odd.

The U.S. attacked the summit by sending its Buffoon in Chief.

who cares? We should pull out of Korea. Maybe the Koreans will be interested in buying some American goods if they have to defend their border without us. Same goes for Japan as far as I’m concerned.

The G20 people, smiling and thinking they are so clever and worldly, haven’t a clue.

The rest of the world, and who can blame them, is going to turn it’s back on the U.S. and the Dems out of control spending and let us sink.

They'll continue to trade with us, so long as we're willing to pay the higher prices, or they are willing to devalue their currency.
OPEC Has Already Turned to the Euro
GoldMoney Alert
February 18, 2004
...The source for the euro exchange rate is the Federal Reserve, and I have calculated the euro's average exchange rate to the dollar for each year based on daily data.

US Imports of Crude oil
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
(6)
Year
Quantity (thousands of barrels)
Value (thousands of US dollars)
Unit price (US dollars)
Average daily US$ per € exchange rate
Unit price (euros)

2001

3,471,066
74,292,894
21.40
0.8952
23.91
2002
3,418,021
77,283,329
22.61
0.9454
23.92
2003
3,673,596
99,094,675
26.97
1.1321
23.82
We can see from column (4) in the above table that in 2001, each barrel of imported crude oil cost $21.40 on average for that year. But by 2003 the average price of a barrel of crude oil had risen 26.0% to $26.97 per barrel. However, the important point is shown in column (6). Note that the price of crude oil in terms of euros is essentially unchanged throughout this 3-year period.

As the dollar has fallen, the dollar price of crude oil has risen. But the euro price of crude oil remains essentially unchanged throughout this 3-year period. It does not seem logical that this result is pure coincidence. It is more likely the result of purposeful design, namely, that OPEC is mindful of the dollar's decline and increases the dollar price of its crude oil by an amount that offsets the loss in purchasing power OPEC's members would otherwise incur. In short, OPEC is protecting its purchasing power as the dollar declines.

I am not sure OPEC has that kind of pricing power, and I’m not sure why you didn’t show beyond 2003.

To me it proves the dollar has fallen vs oil and the Euro, whereas, at least until 2003, the Euro was holding its own and preserving it’s value.

What I found interesting about the G-20 was that Obama ran for President criticizing President Bush and alienating our allies and he went to the G 20 summit alienated our allies and defended going it alone on economic policy!!!

Eventually this could harm our national defense and invite aggression.

Translation: Bad world economy via U.S. = WW3

What it shows is, OPEC prices in Euros, which OPEC is perfectly powerful enough to do; the article came from 2004, so there’s no data after 2003.

The USD has fluctuated against the Euro (nothin’ new about that); the Euro’s sudden fall during the various deficit and banking system crises over a year ago was good for oil prices in the US, but now those have crept back toward triple digits. Which reminds me, I’ve gotta gas up today.

Zero wasn’t a convincing candidate, not credible in any way; just goes to show how blind and ignorant leftist (and for that matter, “rightist”) hatred was toward GWB and toward Pubbies in general.

The only risk of WW3 imv is a precipitous rise in oil prices; that is only likely to happen due to a real or perceived lack of supply, even if it’s only short term. China doesn’t have the capability to meaningfully intervene in the Middle East if (well, when) Iran starts the next war, but Iran has some sort of alliance or near-alliance with Iran, part of the competition between Russia and China as they vie for influence.

It is in Iran’s interest to delay its beginning until it has accumulated as many advantages as it can, and while it obtains as many of the fruits of war (without actually fighting it) as it can. Zero’s concentration on Yemen’s new civil war is due to the growing threat of an out-of-control wild every-man-for-himself shootout in the Kingdom.

Iranian missiles also shadow the shipping route through the Red Sea, and those will have to be removed — and they should have been removed, with or without warning, as soon as they’d arrived.
