Developing Korea Conflict Could Go Nuclear ... Russia Preparing

Personally, I'm not climbing into the bunker yet. Those North Koreans play a different brand of rock and roll and this just seems to be the same bluster, higher volume.

But I find it interesting that Russia has publicly declared a nuclear warning. Not surprised, I guess though, because it could in the end benefit Russia to ratchet up global fears. One obvious result might be a bit higher oil prices. We won't go into the possibility of certain commisars and siloviki actually hoping for tensions to erupt into an expanding hot war.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia is taking security measures as a precaution against the possibility tension over North Korea could escalate into nuclear war, news agencies quoted officials as saying on Wednesday.


Interfax quoted an unnamed security source as saying a stand-off triggered by Pyongyang's nuclear test on Monday could affect the security of Russia's far eastern regions, which border North Korea.


"The need has emerged for an appropriate package of precautionary measures," the source said.


"We are not talking about stepping up military efforts but rather about measures in case a military conflict, perhaps with the use of nuclear weapons, flares up on the Korean Peninsula," he added. The official did not elaborate further.

Here's another interesting report on Russia very much worth reading: "The new Cold War is over energy resources"
