Failed Nation, Failed Diplomacy.


Once again, DPRK just launched a ballistic missile to threaten not Japan as such but the Trump administration in the States. Once upon a time, even DPRK tended to argue she never launched a “missile” but just tested a rocket launch for scientific research. The time has dramatically changed recently and the North officially announces the “strategic success” of ballistic missile launch. Long-range ballistic missiles made by DPRK are said to be able to directly reach the US territory. When the event had happened 100 years ago, it were a sufficient reason for US to declare a “defense war” against Pyongyang. However, even D. Trump still hesitates to do so. Instead, the US President fired his closest political and military staffs and continues his lonely war of words against Kim Jong-un. The time has been passing.

The reason why D. Trump should declare a “war” in the Korean Peninsula and can’t do so yet is clear: In lack of sufficient official budget, the US administration can’t plan any war to win. For deployment of warships, submarines, fighters and bombers, and rapid mobilizations of all the US soldiers, D. Trump urgently needs enough budget which he unfortunately doesn’t have. Why? The American democracy doesn’t allow him to do so. His any attempts to break its tradition has failed so far. A series of his presidential executive orders were refused by US courts. Only the room left for D. Trump is twitter, where he’s just sued by some users for inappropriate tweets.

As far as I analyzed, the Trump administration invited his Chinese counterpart to jointly declare a “legitimate” war against DPRK to establish a new order in the Far East. However, the Xi administration is clever enough to understand it could be politically endangered if it would rely on D. Trump, who’s obviously not backed by the nation under the above-mentioned circumstances. This is exactly why PRC suddenly changed its friendly approach to D. Trump and de facto refuses to join his original plan to fight against Kim Jong-un.

The only way out for D. Trump is ironically to ask his enemy, Kim Jong-un, to take much harder measures against his citizens: Once all the three US citizens, who still remains captured in Kim Jong-un’s hands, will be sent back to the states in a coma like the US student, Otto Warmbier, D. Trump will be authorized by the US public opinion to declare a “defense war” unilaterally against DPRK. Mere ballistic missile launches to the EEZ of Japan, one of the closest US ally, can’t persuade the people on the street in the states to get rid of their love for peace. Someone must be sacrificed, after all the diplomatic means turn out to be both ineffective and useless.

To warp up, I would say, whether the leadership of budgetary failed nation led by D. Trump would succeed to militarily attack Pyongyang or not really matters. If D. Trump would do so, the conventional “nation state” system would manage to survive. In this case, any “legitimate” wars always follow diplomacy, which is done only for gaining a time to convince the public of joining the wars against enemies. In the modern nation state system, diplomacy is just a tool for either opening up a one-way to military attack or ending war, even though the diplomacy as such pretends as if it aims only at (re-)establishing peaceful order. The historical fact is nations states always need wars to rebalance supply and demand gaps, while their diplomacy is totally dependent on such a tendency of nations states. If D. Trump will fail to declare the Second Korean War as soon as possible, the US as a nation state will immediately turn out to be failed. The traditional diplomacy will also end there.

I’d say, only about 40 days are left for D. Trump’s final attempt to attack Pyongyang unilaterally. Other things being equal, September 8 of this year will be the next target date. Well, let’s see whether his possible failure to follow the conventional rules of nation state will eventually open the door to the next world order. Stay tuned.


How Happy You are.


Basically, I’m very negative when it comes to both “digitalization” and “internet”. They do not create genuine added values at all. Instead, they just make us virtually meet those who can’t meet us without digital devices. All the IT-companies such as Uber and Airbnb follow the same business model. They enable us to dramatically expand our own human network, which can be sometimes monetized. However, again, the end of this story must come soon, since the number of the world’s population is limited, and the digitalization is being drastically accelerated towards the singularity. Once the moment of truth will have come, this business model will immediately come to an end and can never be revitalized again. Meanwhile, almost everyone tries to do the same business, so that it’s commoditized in an accelerated manner. In short, digitalization as such doesn’t matter. It’s all the human beings that will decide the world’s destiny.

Regardless of this fact, I sometimes enjoy “synchronicity”, which sometimes emerges thanks to the digitalized world in my life and makes my mind overflowing. An encounter in the internet I personally experienced recently is one of the typical examples for such phenomena.

Anja (*pseudonym) mistakenly clicked my wall on LinkedIn (in English version) and sent me a “request” to be added in my friends’ list. Because she lives in the southern part of Germany (Bayern) and works as music teacher in a school, I spontaneously accepted the request and responded to her with a short message, even in German. She was extremely shocked to find my message, because she was aware of her mistouch and actually didn’t want to become “my digital friend”. Furthermore, she was positively surprised by my message written in not English but German, so that she replied. That was the very beginning of our conversation online.

Anja kindly explained why she’s now living with her husband and children in Bayern, although her mother tongue is not German but Russian. “Well, Takeo, to be honest, I’m Russian emigrant with my husband, who is ‘Spaetaussiedler’”, she told me. Having written the phrase, she gradually got started with telling me the long story of her journey so far.

She and her husband (to be) grew up in a tiny city in the eastern part of Kasachstan, very near the border to China. When she was 14 years old, she fell love with him and decided to get married with him. However, the collapse of the then Soviet Union abruptly hindered them from doing so easily. The local people, who had been very kind to the Russian citizens, declared the independence of the state of Kasachstan, while she and her families felt threatened because of their Russian ethnicity. Her husband (to be) made a decision to emigrate to Germany because of his German origin. Thanks to Helmut Kohl’s strategic diplomacy, all those who had German origin in the former Soviet Union were entitled to get German passport without any difficulties.

Anja felt extremely troubled. Of course, she joined him to get married in the new promised land, “Germany”, on the one hand. But on the other hand, her parents obviously opposed to her wish, based on the fact her grandfathers and -mothers died in the Great Patriotic War against Nazi-Germany. Anja, a young lady who really wanted to study Psychology, was forced to leave their lovely parents and live her entirely new life in Augusburg, Germany. That was just the very beginning of her hardship.

Without money and sufficient German language skill, she didn’t know whether her decision was correct or not. All most all the day, she either worked or learned to become music teacher while giving up her dream to study psychology. She couldn’t help feeling loneliness overwhelmingly, since she and her husband (to be ) couldn’t afford to live together in lack of money.

“But in this period of my life, I’ve got a lot of foreign residents in Germany, who also struggled to survive and could share my feeling as friends”, Anja wrote. Now, her surroundings seem to be very stabilized and secured, and she enjoys her own both private and professional life. “How about you, Takeo? Tell me a little bit about your own life”, she’s asking.

Having written Anja’s story, I spontaneously contemplated what “happiness” means for our life. At least, as for me and other Japanese people, we have never experienced such a hardship as Anja was forced to overcome, thanks to the stabilized society and national wealth of our country. Nevertheless, who knows whether our own country would repeat the historical mistakes we did before the end of the WWII and automatically face the same hardship Anja experienced after the collapse of the former Soviet Union?

Now, you may wonder how happy you are. At least in this regard, the digitalized world is meaningful from my viewpoint. The encounter with new foreign friends in the internet sometimes makes us deeply think about fundamental issues in our life such as happiness, dream and solidarity. Well, how about you? How happy are you?

The B Side of USA.


Democracy is based on mutual trust among those who take part in the game. Whoever doesn’t know what “mutual trust “actually means, shall not be entitled to get involved. Obviously. Donald Trump is the one who is to be excluded from the game in this regard.

The Asahi Shimbun, one of the leading newspapers in Japan, reports today’s morning, D. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, took the seat in the G20 Summit meeting in Hamburg, while her father had to go out just for a while. According to the conventional rule in the “G” Summit meeting (G7/8 and 20), the leaders are “personally” supported by Sherpas and Subsherpas, who are both top and talented bureaucrats with sufficient knowledge and experiences. Whenever the leaders can’t attend the Summit meeting, it’s only their Sherpas who are allowed to even physically serve as a proxy of the bosses. However, Ivanka Kushner (former Trump), isn’t obviously not D. Trump’s “Sherpa”, but mere “unpaid Assistant to the President”. By making her take his own seat, the US President made one more new “legend” in the world history.

Having said that, I’m already excited to see how the US public opinion will react on this affair in terms of the global governance. Even this single issue clearly shows how Donald Trump thinks about conventional rules of politics and democracy. He prefers “nepotism” to democracy, because he can believe only his own family members. No one but his daughter may serve as his proxy, since D. Trump can’t help feeling continuous anxiety vis-à-vis all the non-relatives.

Facing such a silent death of the American democracy, the Japanese mass media harshly criticizes the misconducts of Donald Trump and urge USG to revise the failed politics under his political and economic leadership. Nevertheless, some prominent global strategists such as Isao Kubota, President of the Nishi-Nippon City Bank, do not agree with the criticism and remind the Japanese public of the “B Side” of the American political tradition. For example, Isao Kubota referred to this point in his article published in “Kinyu Zaisei Business(金融財政ビジネス)“ as follows:

“It’s remarkable that a built-in mechanism to let the country go to the right direction works in spite of such a leadership as Donald Trump in US. While seeing a series of turbulence on the surface of US, I’m now rather feeling the traditional “toughness” in the US politics, which can be never found in any other developed countries.” (Tentatively translated by the author)

Taking various examples of what the D. Trump’s administration has done so far (the Russian gate and the controversial border control against the Islam etc.), we always recognize there must be the “B Side” of the country, which succeeds to correct the wrong directions of the presidency.

In my own word, it’s the fundamental human network called the “Kokutai(国体)” that governs all the countries in the last moment, while the democratically elected leadership, the “Seitai(政体)“ is always the pseudo-mechanism which usually believe to work. However, once the latter fails to govern, the former is automatically turned on to do the right things.

From my viewpoint, it also the case for my country, Japan, and it’s the high time for the Japanese “Kokutai(国体)” to do the right thing: Tomorrow (July 10, 2017), a special session of the Japanese Diet is to be held to intensively discuss how seriously the anti-democratic nepotism of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his clan harm the sound development of the Japanese society. It must be the final call for Shinzo Abe to resign and we’ll welcome the new political leadership in Japan.

Let’s see whether the “B Side” also works here in Japan successfully as it has done in the States. Sometimes, songs on the “B Side” become much popular than ones on another side. Within a couple of days, we, the Japanese, seriously feel who truly controls the country as the “Kokutai(国体)“ in depth. Stay tuned.

Eventually Released: “Pax Japonica”, My New Book.


Hereby, I proudly announce my first book written in English is just published at first in London, UK. The title is, as I mentioned beforehand, “Pax Japonica. The Resurrection of Japan”.

Having heard that, you may now wonder what this exactly means. Facing the realities in various sectors in Japan, she seems to never reach such a historical stage as “Pax Japonica”. The Japanese politics remain extremely troubled, while the economy hasn’t fundamentally recovered since 1990 at all. Regardless of the surprising fact that the Japanese economy is (still) the third largest one in the world, almost all the Japanese don’t know any more what their traditional “pride” is. Instead of that, their younger generations particularly tend to rather on the “here and now” and become introvert in an accelerated manner. Why “Pax Japonica” now?

In order to answer this legitimate question you may have, you have to knock the door to the classified parallel world which has been actually backing the realities we can see with our own eyes. The point is it’s the so-called “off-balance sheet assets” that really matters in this regard. And all the off-balance sheet assets fundamental classes in countries and regions such as kings, queens and their family members, have traditionally merged with each other and are now controlled collectively. The most remarkable fact we should pay attention is the Japanese Imperial House is given an opportunity to control the system as its “signer”.

With this capacity closely related with tremendous amount of historical off-balance sheet assets, the Japanese Imperial House led by the Emperor of each period is about to generate the new world order. However opaque their decision are, all the essential framework for the future world from now on is either indirectly or directly backed by the secret assets the Japanese Emperor controls for the sake of the whole world.

Just before the morning ringing, it’s usually the darkest outside. The situation where Japan is now located is quite similar to this darkness. Almost everything in the Japanese society collapses and falls continuously, as if that would never stop forever. Nevertheless, moment of the truth will sooner or later, while the situation around Japan will change itself dramatically from a certain point and move forward to the “Pax Japonica”. The rest of the world will be unconsciously involved into this process.

To effectively evoke the atmosphere of the morning ringing in the very near future, I published the above-shown new book even in English. So that all the humankind will realize how our common future will be shaped, wherever they are. Take a look at my new book and don’t miss the opportunity to get involved in the genesis of the new world order.

From the G-Zero (G0) to Pax Japonica (GJ).


Recently, Ian Bremmer, the guru of Eurasia Group, published an article based on his famous thesis called “G-Zero” in Nikkei Asian Review. He repeatedly pointed out how vulnerable and uncertain the future can be in the global community as follows:

In short, the number of global flashpoints and “problems without borders” continues to grow, and there are no credible cooperative plans to manage them, much less to solve the problems that have created them. For now, the G-zero order looks here to stay.

Well, from my viewpoint, such a statement of Ian Bremmer sounds a little bit like “wishful thinking”, since his company “Eurasia Group”, which was successfully endorsed by the Japanese METI, will be able to do good business, as long as the world will stay volatile. For the company, it’s essential to make the ordinary people believe that the future would be uncertain and never promising.

With this thesis “G-Zero”, Ian Bremmer is frequently invited to international conferences and for a, where he always speaks out as an evangelist of the “leaderless” world. The audience seems not to oppose to his proclamation, while he and his company enthusiastically distributed a thesis paper like this to the global readership.

As I will show in my new book entitled “Pax Japonica” to be soon released on June 29, 2017 from LIDpublishing, London/UK, this “G-Zero” thesis unfortunately does not reflect the reality of the global governance, which has been traditionally executed by the genuine world leadership for a couple of centuries. And it’s rather Japan, my mother country, that will play the most significant role to save the world, which Ian Bremmer intentionally disregards. Without referring to this emerging fact, any geopolitical thesis fails to lead us to move forward to the right direction. I’m terribly fearing that Ian Bremmer makes the big and irreversible mistake.

To correctly understand the above-mentioned new thesis, “GJ (Governance by Japan=Pax Japonica)” instead of “G0 (G-Zero)”, you are urged to remind yourself of “design thinking”. Yes, the international community has been getting troubled in an accelerated manner. To overcome the historical difficulty, all of us urgently need to “think outside the box”, and seek any appropriate measure to be taken over the conventional framework of nation states. The system of off-balance-sheet assets, which exists beyond each one of governmental budgets, is the program which is now being executed by the traditional world leadership including the Japanese Imperial family. The massive amount of the off-balance-sheet assets are being poured into the world society to enhance innovative humanity. It’s not well-known “leaders” in mass media such as Donald Trump and others who are to take initiative in this regard. They are still hidden but will emerge within a couple of months.

Because the role of this system’s signer is given to the Japanese Imperial family at this historical moment in the human history, Japan will have to lead the whole world. She will show how to survive in the age of total deflation due to both accelerating irregularity of solar activities and irreversible climate changes, by putting forward a series of brilliant technological innovations such as cold fusion and transmutation. The rest of the world will follow it, since it knows only “war economy” for recovery of the world economy from lasting recession as we’re facing right now. Instead of such a conventional mean, Japan will present a completely different way for the future, which will be backed by the historically kept off-balance-sheet assets and automatically penetrate into the rest of the world.

Ian Bremmer mentions in his thesis “weaponization of finance”. Japan is now entitled to “weaponize” the off-balance-sheet assets with a good faith to save the whole world. While all the other nations will get troubled with more and more economic, financial and political hardship, only Japan will soon be able to get rid of it thanks to unforeseen technological innovations with global impacts.

Ian Bremmer’s blind spot is, besides his lacking reference to the off-balance-sheet assets in the traditional world leadership over the “democratically” elected leaders, the fact that decisive technological innovations, which never expressively speak out by themselves, are always capable of changing the world order. Because Japan is about to take such a both technological and innovative initiative fully backed by the off-balance-sheet assets, she will automatically get started with totally changing the world. Society, Economy and even politics are determined to follow technological innovations. This is exactly what I mean to say by mentioning “GJ (Governance by Japan)” or PAX JAPONICA.

As I met Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan privately on January 2, 2015, he expressively regards me as a Japanese version of Ian Bremmer. Well, dear Prime Minister, you’re completely wrong. I’m not a puppet of exitless propaganda such as the “G-Zero”, but a warrior for the forthcoming reality such as “GJ”, who himself actively leads the process toward PAX JAPONICA, the inevitable future of the whole world.

In short, let’s say good-bye to Ian with his fantasy around the “G0” and welcome instead the new reality towards “GJ”.

Israel and Ctyprocurrency in Japan.


After having soared dramatically, Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, suddenly fell yesterday night. We can easily imagine a lot of Japanese retail investors got anxious and couldn’t sleep well. Now that the first scene of the cryptocurrency theater seems to have come to an end, I do recommend that you should wait a little bit to join the market again. Until when? Well, I would say, until the abrupt breakout of the second Korean war in the middle of the forthcoming July.

Having said that, I do not exclude cryptocurrencies will rocket again in the short term. As long as I’ve been informed of the latest results of quantitative analysis on the global market, their prices will rather go up again meanwhile, as they did in the latter half of the last April. However, based on the current development around the cryptocurrencies in Japan, I remember the following aphorism the ancient Chinese wise men wrote: “ Better be the head of a pike than the tail of a sturgeon.”

What we’re urgently urged to pay attention to is the intention of someone who continuously stimulates the Japanese public and leads the Japanese ordinary people to join the cryptocurrency theater. From my viewpoint, the highest time when you had to get in to the cryptocurrency market was April in the last year, 2016. After the Chinese retail investors sought a safe haven in Bitcoin since then, its price accelerated to rise up. Compared with its price in April 2016, it became tripled in the very beginning of this year. That was really the initial “honey” phase you can enjoy in terms of emerging new products in the financial market.

It’s the Japanese big companies that abruptly begin to make the local retail consumers and investors pay much more attention to cryptocurrencies. Particularly, the megabanks in Japan have been competing with each other to bring their own cryptocurrencies to the market and will launch them one after another in the autumn of this year. The point is they do not develop the core technologies they essentially need for their cryptocurrencies by themselves, but totally rely on their Israeli partners. The Japanese megabanks have been dispatching their huge delegations to Tel Aviv repeatedly, so that they agreed on win-win collaborations with the Israelis. The Israelis kindly accept the request from the Japanese friends in the market, and don’t hesitate to disclose high technologies they confidentially developed to the Japanese megabanks.

At this juncture, all we need is to carefully think about the strategy the Israelis are seeking vis-à-vis the Japanese. The leadership of the Jewish state consists of the Ashkenazim, whose traditional strategy to survive in the world history is “mounting”. They carefully pick up those who are rich but not aware of such a selected position in the world, and secretly approach to them by offering something the latter want. Once the latter entirely accepts the offer, the Trojan horse of the Ashkenazim is being switched on. Eventually, it completely destroys the targeted state. What’s left after the operation is the completely different state we did see until recently. In the targeted state, its leadership is dominated by the Ashkenazim, who immigrate from the previous Jewish region. While the “original” local people lose their own sovereignty and are governed by the new leadership of the Ashkenazim. We can see this type of successful stories of the Ashkenazim strategy, for example, in Russia, Canada and Israel.

Now, Japan, my nation, is obviously locked on. All the leaders never seem to fear of such a “mouting” strategy of the Ashkenazim, who will soon be forced to endure “diaspora” from Israel due to the total war in the middle east by 2020. Whether Japan can remain genuinely “Japanese” or not, totally depends on the possibility the Japanese will fully become aware of this creeping crisis. Be careful of the cryptocurrencies, even if they are to be introduced by the Japanese esteemed companies. The enemies always stand behind the door. Stay tuned.

Julian’s New Mission.

Julian Assange

Yesterday, the Swedish prosecutors dropped Julian Assange rape investigation, which forced him to seek a safe haven in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, UK. Finally, Julian Assange, the self-proclaimed leader of “Wikileaks” triumphs. Now that the prosecution in this regard won’t be realized, he’ll immediately get out of the embassy and re-activate his fight against “injustice” in the global world. In short, the second round of “Wikileaks” has just started.

As I once wrote in my book on the dramatic disclosure of US diplomatic cables by Wikileaks in Japanese language, we should focus on the totally classified intention of someone who’s been both financially and physically supporting all the activities of the Wikileaks. Since the online entity got started with releasing the cables obtained from Chelsea Manning to the public on November 28, 2010, the previous world order has been continuously shaken and urged to change. All the conventional authorities have lost their powers step by step, whereas nobody knows yet what alternative will eventually emerge to save the world. Edward Snowden followed Wikileak’s revolutionary attempt. Thanks to their endeavor, all of us know the governmental authorities always hide something significant from the public eye.

What I mean to say here by is quite simple as follows: In the early summer of 2010, the most credible and closest source to me in US Sephardic elites informed me in advance something terrible would take place very soon, which would kick off the total revision of the world order. “Tell me, what do you exactly mean?”, I asked while staying in a room of St. Regis in Osaka. “Sorry, but I may not tell it to you, Takeo, at this juncture. However, believe me and don’t forget we’re now heading to a terrible age”, she replied. After five months, the Wikileaks officially declared its fight against USG.

Based on this personal but essential experience which only “synchronicity” enabled me to have, I firmly believe Julian Assange is given a new mission right now by being released from the fear of prosecution. Because he’s well punished so far, he can’t help obeying such a command from someone behind the door. Besides the latest campaign on “Vault 7” to leak confidential documents of CIA on its secret advanced hacking program, the Wikileaks must have “obtained” other classified documents and will release them to the public once for all, so that the world order will be so transformed that all the human kind will eventually reach the next phase.

As I repeatedly announce recently in public events here in Japan, summer in this year won’t be the same we had until the last year. The summer ahead will be so “hot” both physically and politico-economically, that we won’t forget it. Well, let’s see Julian’s new mission. He’ll soon show us the next door to the future, which will never be the same our wishful thinking used to tell us. Stay tuned.

The End of Digitalization.


More than 100 countries on the globe were reportedly attacked by a ransomware, which is closely related to the US National Security Agency. In UK, the NHS suffered from the attack and totally paralyzed. As for my country, HITACHI, one of the leading company from Japan, was heavily affected by this affair in terms of its factory located in UK. In short, the internet abruptly turned out to be a digitalized WMD.

Facing the globalized disaster, some experts may urge us to accelerate the development of a new technology called “blockchain”. However, this can be never an ultimate “solution” for the current digital disaster in the age of “IoT” and “Industrie 4.0”, since even “blockchain” basically needs the same network as the conventional one the internet has been utilizing.

Even though the ransomware seems to be quite hazardous, this is only the very beginning of the whole story: The digital network our globalized society totally depends on is essentially supported by just four “servers”, while one of them is located in the Shonan Fujisawa Campus of Keio University in Kanagawa prefecture. If someone intentionally switches off all these four servers in the same time, the internet as such is blacked out. No one can will make use of the internet anymore, and the whole human society and economy will be also blacked out.

Again, experts of the internet will argue such an incident will never take place. Well, guys, how about the above-shown ransomware? It clearly shows us that there is nothing impossible in the age of the total digitalization. How should we exclude the possibility “terrorists” equipped with highly developed digital weapons will target the four key servers?

Again, this is just the very beginning of the whole story we’ll face step by step until 2020. Only those who have been carefully following what Julian Assange (Wikileaks) and Edward Snowden allegedly have leaked to the public, are able to understand how vulnerable the world has become due to the accelerated digitalization. I suppose the newly released media “Wikitribune” will tell us much more, while its editors team sent me the following message on May 12, just before the incident:


Thank you so much for your interest in supporting Wikitribune.

We are so excited about this project and will be in touch over the following weeks with ways in which you can be involved.

Many thanks

Wikitribune Team”

To wrap up, I would say, “Be prepared in advance for the total shut down of the digitalized network. Don’t forget to buy a shortwave radio, which is almost forgotten but can deliver essential information on global affairs even without being digitally “get connected””. Stay tuned.

At the Dawn of the Second Korean War.


Because Mike Pence, US Vice President, recently failed to pay a “surprise” visit to Pyongyang for the final “diplomatic” negotiation with Kim Jong-un, USG obviously made up its mind to step forward to its “PLAN B”: The second Korean War. Kim Jong-un isn’t well-educated so that he couldn’t understand why Mike Pence visited the Far East this time. It’s not D. Trump but the US Vice President who’s actually entitled to say the last word in terms of the off-balance-sheet assets to change the world order. Kim Jong-un should take advantage of Pence’s recent visit to the Far Ears and invite him to Pyongyang for the final negotiation. However, the poor pseudo-dictator didn’t know what to do in this context and never changed his “bad” behavior. By the time of the Pence’s visit to the Far East including Japan, my institute supported the analysis that the accelerated tension in the Korean Peninsula would be abruptly swept up thanks to the above-mentioned “surprise” visit of Mike Pence to DPRK. Because he failed to do so, it’s rather the high time for US Armed Forces to attack the pseudo-dictatorship, I think.

Having said that, the question is not “Whether the second Korean War will be break out or not”, but “When will the war break out” and “How should we prepare for the war”. What do you think? Let me tell you my personal opinion as a professional analyst of both global-macro and geopolitical risks briefly as follows:

On the first question of “timing”: We should always stick to the reality that a war can be done only if enough money is prepared. If you don’t have enough money, you can never declare a war to enemies, since you have to pay money to both soldiers and buy a series of weapons. The “allied forces” headed by USG will take the current opportunity to make a war against Pyongyang happen, because they can’t help doing so due to the lasting difficulties in the world economy since 2008. They urgently move on to a new war economy, so that enormous demands will be raised to save the global economy. For this purpose, someone must be sacrificed. It’s the poor North Koreans who are to be selected to play this role. Anyway, as soon as US will succeed to raise enough money, its armed forces suddenly begin a “Blitzkrieg” vis-à-vis Kim Jong-un to show him the fact “This time is completely different from previous games”. The moment of the truth in this context will come between now and the first half of July 2017, my “adaptive unconscious” tells to myself.

On the second question of preparation for the coming war in the Korean Peninsula, some significant factors have to be taken into account: It all depends on another question “How long will the battle be done this time”. If the “allied forces” led by USG will succeed to completely gain supremacy over Pyongyang within a week, what we should prepare as ordinary citizens particularly in Japan is only buying gold bars and selling it once for all, as soon as the gold price is to soar during the war ahead. In this scenario, you don’t need to be concerned about potential involvement in warfare, since all the military high-technologies of US, Russia and PRC will be utilized this time to totally destroy the old-fashioned weapons produced by Kim Jong-un. In short, “Take a little time in advance, and buy gold bars as much as you can”.

Even based on all the things I touched upon so far, I don’t mean to say any single chance will be left for poor Kim Jong-un to achieve a partial victory during the coming war. If we could successfully launch a series of ballistic missiles simultaneously, even US Armed Forces wouldn’t be able to attack all of them. If the war as such will be done as a kind of “covert actions” of US intelligence agencies, some of the ballistic missiles would be controlled by the US side and attack one of its armed forces’ camps located in Japan, for example, in ZAMA, Kanakagawa Prefecture. Even by launching just one ballistic missile without an effective warhead in this way, Japan will be totally shocked and wake up both politically and militarily after having “slept” more than 70 years since the defeat in the WWII. The real and new game towards “Pax Japonica” proclaimed by me will finally get started.

To wrap up: Don’t book flight tickets and reserve rooms in hotels for your summer vacation 2017, before the second Korean War will suddenly and eventually break out. Stay tuned.
