2019 Storyline:

“South Korea is a whorehouse, where the imperialism of the United States and its allies procreate in the loins of outsourced industry and globalization. Our mores and venerated traditions are corrupted and sold in the back alleys of Seoul by vendors of capitalism. The glorious legacy of Korea, built on the backs of freedom fighters is burdened by the scourge of American colonialism upon our world.”
- KCBS Voice of Korea, Pyongyang

North Korea and China Sign East Compact Alliance

   After a successful meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and Chinese General Secretary Xi Jinping in Phnom Penh, the two leaders have agreed to form the East Compact Alliance, further solidifying the political and military relations between the two nations. The multinational meeting included representatives from Laos, Russia, Iran, and Kazakhstan, all weighing in on the continuing conflict on the Pacific coast of Asia. The battle for control of the Korean Peninsula and neighboring regions of China has been ongoing since 2006, with North Korea initially firing artillery and short range missiles at the South Korean capital of Seoul. The People’s Republic of China entered the conflict in 2011 with the build-up and further deployment of combat troops supporting North Korea. The agreement which outlines the military strategy between the two counties along with the cohesion of their prospective forces.
   The resulting conflict has left large parts of the region decimated and nearly uninhabitable. Most major utilities not limited to electric, water, and sanitation systems have also been badly crippled. An estimated more than 500,000 residents have been displaced and have been shuttled to various refugee camps around South Jeolla Province and two on the eastern coast of Australia. A mounting amount of human rights abuses have been reported by militaries on both sides of the strife. With allegations ranging from mass executions and abductions, to looting and murder being reported by Human Rights Watch and the UN’s World Food Programme. The World Health Organization has warned of a dire humanitarian crisis caused by a lack of proper sanitation and access to clean water.

Vietnamese Navy Torpedoes Two Austrialian-American Ships

   In a move reminiscent of the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident, a Vietnamese submarine has targeted an Austrialian-American destroyer and transport ship, sinking one and badly damaging another. The transport was almost sunk because of two direct hits from Vietnamese torpedos. The destroyer was badly damaged by the initial attack, but the hits hit ammunition caches in the vessel, causing massive secondary explosions and the resulting sinking of the ship. The destroyer began to sink and list to one side quickly, allowing only about 50 to escape the vessel on lifeboats. The survivors were quickly rescued by an American destroyer and evacuated back to the mainland. By international standards, a sudden and surprise attack by one foreign power to another is considered an act of war and by some to be a war crime.
   The bold move by the Vietnamese Navy illustrates the growing military importance of the Navies between the conflicting countries. The nearby Spratly Islands in the South China Sea has been seen as a vital area within the conflict. The Islands which are claimed by several sovereign nations including China, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines have been a source of animosity between the various countries. Since 2013, the Chinese government has been engaging in large scale land reclamation by dumping sand and cement on the coral reefs and building structures and bases on the newly formed islands. The islands consist of various military structures, runways, seaports, and anti-aircraft systems.

United States Outrage Over China-Iran Arms Deal

   In a White House statement Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounced an arrangement for Iran to purchase weapons from the People’s Republic of China. The agreement between Tehran and Beijing will allow more than $200,000,000 worth of arms and munitions to be delivered to Iranian territory. The specific details of the agreement remain unknown and are considered state secrets. Analysis agree that more than likely the Iranians have purchased mobile land-based missile and anti-aircraft systems along with mobile intermediate ballistic missile launchers. The agreement comes at a time when tensions between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran are at an all time high. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia that is already engaged in a proxy war with Iran has expressed concern over suspected Iranian attacks on ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz. Support from the United States to Saudi Arabia in the on-going civil war in Yemen has only inflamed tensions further.
   Other major world powers including most members of NATO and several European and Central American countries have condemned the arrangement calling it a “dangerous and irresponsible” move by the Chinese government. The People’s Republic of China that has been embroiled in an ever growing conflict on the Pacific coast of Asia for several years now. It’s suspected that Beijing is offering arms to strategic partners around the globe in order to subvert and minimize American influence in the region. One of the few dissenting opinions came from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who lauded the arrangement between Beijing and Tehran calling it “a responsible way to enforce peace within the region.”
