VLADIMIR PUTIN is reinforcing his border with North Korea by relocating troops and equipment, according to reports today.

The move comes as tension remains high despite revelations that a Donald Trump naval armada is not – anyway yet – in position off the Korean peninsula.

A video purports to show one of three trains loaded with military equipment moving towards the 11 mile-long land frontier between Russia and the repressive state.

Another evidently highlights military helicopter movements towards the North Korean border and manoeuvres across rough terrain by army combat vehicles.

Other reports suggest there have been military moves by road as well.

South Korean Paper Reports China Has Deployed 150,000 Troops To North Korea Border

Things are getting very interesting in Asia, to say the least. What to make out of this event is yet to be seen, but we could guess as to what’s going on, assuming a war is about to break out:

  • Donald Trump and Xi Jinping made a deal to solve the North Korean threat once and for all.
  • China is reacting to an ultimatum by President Trump to solve the problem, or America will.
  • China is acting on its own in a race against America to take out North Korea and occupy it before an American attack is feasible.

Whether it’s teamwork or sabre rattling against the West or North Korea, we’ll find out soon. One thing is for sure, though, and that is to say China doesn’t want America to unite the peninsula. That would mean land-wise, America has more options (than South Korea, Japan, et al) to contain China.

 

While the catalyst is unclear, it appears the market dropped as headlines of further sanctions against Russia appeared and reports of China deploying 150,000 troops to its North Korea border.
