It’s All Going According to Kim’s Plan
Trump Must Not Become A Coward

Abraham Magnawa /

Ever since North Korea’s participation in the Pyeongchang Olympics in February, the global situation has been moving according to Kim Jong-un’s plan.

After the games, Kim has met with government leaders of various countries.

In late March he travelled to China to meet President Xi Jinping, and he recently invited U.S. Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo to meet with him in North Korea. In late April he plans to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in and, in May or June, with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump vowed to suspend military action while negotiations are going on between North and South Korea, and Kim is now using this to his advantage to create a situation where the U.S. is unable to take the military option. Trump will find it even harder to move as he nears the midterm elections in autumn.

It is all going to plan for Kim.


The U.S. has Missed the Opportunity to Strike

Predicting this course of events, Master Ryuho Okawa, founder and CEO of Happy Science, stated in April last year that, were he the U.S. President, he would have already taken military action against North Korea.

Postponing the strikes means giving more preparation time to China and Russia, which will make the coming Second Korean War even more chaotic. In other words, the prime opportunity to strike North Korea was in May 2017.

Trump postponed it, however, and so the Liberty Magazine has continued to push for a decision from the President to bring an end to the Kim Regime.


Weakening Resolve

In the beginning Trump had a firm stance against North Korea.

“They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” he declared. And in the 72nd Session of the U.N. General Assembly he said, “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea”.

After some time, however, Trump’s fire and fury rhetoric started to weaken. He adopted an affirmative stance towards talks with North Korea and has kept postponing his decision in regard to military action.

It seems like he wants to avoid media criticism and is looking to get concrete results ahead of the midterm elections.

If we give North Korea any more time, however, the U.S. and Japan will soon be too preoccupied to do anything about the nuclear problem. In 2019 Japan will be dealing with the difficulties associated with the Emperor’s abdication, and in 2020 there are the Tokyo Olympics and the U.S. Presidential Election.

In contrast, Kim Jong-un is dictator for life. As soon as Trump’s term ends in January 2021 he will recommence his nuclear and missile tests. Then the U.S. will be powerless against them.

It is only a matter of months before military action becomes impossible.


Japan Must Independently Counter North Korea

Within the last year, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has announced a pointless amendment to Article 9 of the Constitution and has relied completely on Trump in terms of diplomacy and security.

In his talks with U.S. leaders in mid-April, he made mention of the North Korean threat but reduced it to a mere “abduction problem”. What he should have done was to encourage Trump to strengthen sanctions and military pressure on North Korea.

In order to get Trump to take action, Japan must act independently in preparation for a military confrontation with North Korea. More precisely, this would include announcing the acquisition of nuclear weapons to counter those of North Korea, introducing cruise missiles that can directly threaten Kim, and the reinforcement of the Special Forces to recapture abducted citizens.

All of this comes down to amending Article 9, which currently binds the country against military action. The U.S. will not move unless Japan shows a willingness to fight alongside them.


Japan Is on The Eve of a Revolution

The current situation in Japan can be compared to the night before the Meiji Restoration. The revolutionaries faced the Western powers that were threatening to colonize their country and turned the tide for the better amid dangerous situations.

One of the key motivators behind this move was the intellectual Shoin Yoshida of the Choshu domain. The Choshu domain pushed for the Restoration and contributed significantly to the creation of a new era. In his historical novel “Ryoma Goes His Way” writer Ryotaro Shiba likens Yoshida to a religious leader and an irreplaceable figure in an age of chaos, saying:

“The Choshu domain was a place of religious group hysteria, where fanatics danced furiously with their leader . . . But Ryoma knew that in times of great tension, these fanatics are more needed than prudent old men.”

These Shochu fanatics embraced the spirit of Shoin Yoshida, which became the catalyst for a peaceful revolution.

This fanaticism, however, does not stem from folly. Yoshida was highly educated, and had made an accurate assessment of the global situation. Yoshida was a conservative man of deep faith and patriotism. So his end, though self-sacrificial, was hysterical in the right way in that it was directed toward the happiness of the future world.


We Must Bring an End to the Kim Regime

After the Meiji Restoration, the Yoshida Shoin spirit eventually led to the Heihachiro Togo’s victory in the Russo-Japanese War, and to Japan becoming the most successful democratic country in Asia. Without Yoshida, there would have been no Meiji Restoration, and no acceptance of the values of democracy within Japan.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration, and we now face similar circumstances: there is a clash of civilizations between those countries that prize freedom and democracy, and those that uphold materialism and totalitarianism.

American and Japanese leaders must not be distracted by the current circumstances, but must look towards the peace and prosperity of the world 50 years, 100 years into the future. That is the place where all decisions must stem from.

Japan must rekindle the Yoshida Shoin spirit, and do everything within their power to destroy the devil-inspired Kim Regime. Only then will Trump revive his anti-Kim fanaticism.
