Our models seem to be right on target for the escalation of military threats from North Korea. We gave our two targets for the opening of this window for a conflict on our war model with North Korea to watch were August 12/13, 2017 and September 11/12, 2017. We must be on guard for this is the prime period where a confrontation could emerge.
This time he fired a missile over Japan. True, he could hit South Korea and Japan before they could launch any counter-measure. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the “most serious and grave” threat to the country. There is no question he is doing this to show strength to retain control. There are always people within a government who would assassinate him if he appeared weak. Such is the fate of dictators.
We expect tensions to rise into the next target September 11/12th.
