#3 Control of militarily strategic border areas that also happen to contain ancient Temple plexes.

* PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM > THAI PM VOWS TO BACK ARMY IN DEFENSE OF TERRITORIES.

* NEWS KERALA > THAILAND DENIES CHEMICAL WEAPONS [75-105mm Arty Shells]USED AGZ CAMBODIA, as per new border clashes.

----------

ION REGIONAL

* PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM > [Lowery Institute poll = under 1/2 of Aussies surveyed] AUSSIES FEAR
THREAT OF WAR WID CHINA, circa Year 2030+? ala desire by China for AUS Land + Resources.

OVERWHELMING MAJORITY = believe any outbreak of US-China War in Asia-Pacific will inevitably involve Australia on the US side; FAVOR SUPPOR SOUTH KOREA [+ US] IFF ANY WAR BREAKS OUT ON THE KOREAN PENINSULA.

* DAILY TIMES.PK > NORTH KOREA DIPLOMACY AT A CROSSROADS: TALK OR TROUBLE?

Gonna be a "near/tricky thing" as Churchill once said.

Again, SOKOR has a vested interest in ensuring that China does NOT take over NOKOR for any reason, ee War or Econ Collapse = Attrition. KIMMIE WANTS THE SAME THING BUT IDEALLY NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF DYNASTIC RULE + POWER, OR MAJOR CHANGES TO NOKOR-STYLE SOCIALISM.

IMO the JAPAN "FUKUSHIMA" CRISIS is diverting China's attention away from the Kimmie agenda - iff Japan is ultimately abandoned by Japanese due to excessive radiation-led environ destruction, or otherwise becom milpol dominated + suborned under mainland China, NOKOR WILL NO LONGER RECV PRIORITY IN CHINA'S EYES WHICH WILL NOT DO FOR KIMMIE + DYNASTY-REGIME.

Remember, the KIM CLAN + NOKOR COMMIES had promised, among other, that the DPRK = COMMIE UNIFIED KOREA will be a "GREAT POWER/NATION" again one day under their Leadership.

Kimmie is NOT like Uncle Muammar in Libyuh as per National Progressivism, but IMO he is like Muammar in that, in the absence of international concessions/kowtowing, Kimmie will choose to fight to the death to preserve His + Dynasty's political power.

IMO KIMMIE WILL HAVE NO QUALMS ABOUT STARTING A MAJOR US-CHINA WAR [incl. use of Nuke Weapons] TO PRESERVE PERSONAL, DYNASTIC POWER, OR IN THE ALTERN ENSURE THAT NO ONE HAS POWER [mutual destruction].

IOW, KIMMIE = GADDAFI = ITS FOR SOKOR + UNO + US, OTHER ALLIES TO CONCEDE, NOT HIM.
