Why start another war, a much bigger one that the out of control, tyrant Obama knows he can't afford?

There's things we know we know which are known as known knowns.  Then there's thing we know we don't know which are known as don't knows.

 --  Donald Rumsfeld.


From the article

"Some reporting has taken great liberal licence with his comments and taken him completely out of context," Colonel Jonathan Withington, of the public affairs office of US Forces Korea, said in a statement.

"No US or ROK (Republic of Korea) forces have parachuted into North Korea," he said. "Though special reconnaissance is a core special operations force mission, at no time have SOF forces been sent to the north to conduct special reconnaissance.

That's what they're going to do to everyone who visits this site when the NWO finally gets its act together.
We have the word of "Brigadier General Neil Tolley, commander of US special forces in South Korea" versus "Colonel Jonathan Withington, of the public affairs office of US Forces Korea".  For God's sake, the official denier isn't even general staff.
"The entire tunnel infrastructure is hidden from our satellites," Gen Tolley said. "So we send (South Korean) soldiers and US soldiers to the North to do special reconnaissance."
How do you take that out of context?

I don't believe the US would take the risk. Not because they "don't want to start another war" but because they can have ROK do the job for them. The US has a long history of using their allies for highly dangerous intelligence missions: Taiwan operated U2's for CIA over Maoist China, well after SAM made the missions borderline suicidal, the RAF carried out the first overflight of the Soviet nuclear faility at Kapustin Yar and Taiwanese were chosen to carry out an extremely sensitive wiretapping operation in North Vietnam to provide intelligence during the Paris peace conference. In the latter the Taiwanese proved "completely unsatisfactory" during training and were replaced by CIA air crews and Laotian commandos.

God only knows what has been going on in Korea for past sixty years: the few things that were made public (for example the kidnapping of Japanese citizens by the DPRK) are already shrouded in secrecy and don't sound like the whole story. God only knows what will stay buried in the archives for decades or what will never be known.

Together we go unsung... together we go down with our people
