Russia and North Korea May Engineer Pre-Election Military Shock

 May 24, 2024

As the clock ticks closer to the U.S. presidential elections, the Biden administration braces for a pro-ruse by Russia and North Korea.

According to the New York Post, the supposed military cooperation between Russia and North Korea might peak with a strategic disturbance during the critical time of U.S. elections.

Growing concerns center on a deeper military partnership between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Strategic indicators suggest that Putin’s forthcoming visit to North Korea could culminate in significant agreements enhancing Pyongyang’s military prowess.

Technical Assistance and Global Concerns

Officials from the U.S. intelligence services have highlighted an anticipated spike in provocative actions from North Korea, potentially influenced by Russia. This pre-election period could see North Korea equipped with advanced military technology, including nuclear submarines and ballistic missiles.

Victor Cha, Senior Vice President for Asia and Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, emphasized the intricate nature of this evolving alliance. “2022 tightening the military alliance between Russia and North Interactions between the two have become highly complex and are expected to shake the geopolitical landscape,” he detailed.

A notable shift has been the increase in suspected activities at North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear facility, signaling possible preparations for another nuclear test. This development could see enhancements in North Korea’s missile technology capabilities, specifically in hypersonic and long-range ballistic missiles.

Escalation and Preparedness

Given these developments, a high-ranking official in the U.S. acknowledged the difficulty in monitoring these advanced technological exchanges. “The higher-end Russia technical assistance comes in forms that are very difficult indeed to monitor,” the official stated, underscoring the covert nature of these transactions.

Additionally, the exchange is not one-sided. North Korea might support Russia with munitions for the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. This mutual back-scratching intensifies the stakes as the U.S. presidential race heats up.

Despite ongoing diplomatic efforts, interaction between the U.S. and North Korea has remained minimal. Recent attempts by the U.S. to establish dialogue have been outright ignored by North Korean authorities, compounding the challenges in de-escalating tensions.

International Reactions and Election Implications

The broader global political climate is tense, with connections between major international players influencing outcomes. Concerning the potential provocations by North Korea, a U.S. intelligence official remarked, “We do not doubt that North Korea will be provocative this year. It’s just a matter of how escalatory it is.”

The friction is further exacerbated by anticipation of Russia aiding North Korea in developing its first nuclear-armed submarine, a significant leap in military capabilities. Such developments could potentially alter the regional security dynamics, affecting the Korean Peninsula and the broader international community.

With the potential for these countries to influence the impending U.S. elections, experts like those at Beyond Parallel have pointed out, “Both the United States and South Korea have assessed North Korea as having completed all the required preparations for conducting a seventh nuclear test from the tunnel.”

To conclude, as election day approaches, the specter of international military collaborations hangs over the U.S., posing a national security threat and potentially influencing electoral outcomes. The situation remains fluid, and the global community watches closely, hoping for stability in these turbulent times.
