>Communist Bloc Military Updates: North Korea’s top general confers with Cuban counterpart; South Korea: Armed forces on “highest alert” for G20 summit

>Pictured here: On November 3, 2010 South Korean police officers inspect the Han River, prior to the upcoming G20 Summit in Seoul. South Korea’s police chief has raised the prospect that North Korea may attempt to disrupt the November 11-12 gathering of world leaders. Some 50,000 police will be deployed throughout the event.

The single-party communist dictatorships that terrorize Cuba and North Korea are closing ranks in the area of military cooperation. Last Friday, Vice Marshal Ri Yong Ho, a senior military leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), arrived in Havana for an official visit. Ri, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army, and his entourage are scheduled to meet with senior officers of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba and visit military schools and units. Last April in Pyongyang, Ri held talks with a military delegation from Cuba, both praising the development of bilateral ties.

This is the first trip to Cuba by Ri, who was promoted to the post of vice marshal as part of a September leadership reshuffle that will probably pave the way for a hereditary power transfer in the reclusive state. Ri was also named, along with Kim Jong-il’s youngest son and heir apparent, Kim Jong-un, to the country’s powerful Central Military Commission.

Cuba’s retired dictator Fidel Castro has been a vocal supporter of North Korea, which was created in 1945 under the aegis of Soviet occupational troops. After an international investigation into the March 2010 sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan found a North Korean torpedo attack responsible, Castro branded the findings a “strange fabrication.”

In a related story, the chief of the Republic of Korea’s National Intelligence Service contends that North Korea has a force of 1,000 computer hackers who can be deployed to engage in cyber warfare. Addressing lawmakers in a parliamentary audit last Thursday the country’s spymaster called North Korea’s cyber skills “remarkable.” The red regime in Pyongyang also maintains hacking networks in the People’s Republic of China. Over the past year North Korea was believed to have instigated several cyber attacks on key government offices in Seoul.

Earlier this week, South Korea’s National Police Agency claimed to have found evidence that North Korean hackers were collecting information on sewage and traffic systems around the upcoming G20 summit site. However, the South Korean government has assured foreign dignitaries that security at the summit will be unprecedented, with the armed forces going on their “highest alert.” G20 leaders will converge in Seoul on November 11 and 12 to discuss the global financial system and the world economy. South Korea is the first non-G8 nation to host a G-20 Leaders’ Summit.

Invading South Korea during the G20 summit would be an ideal opportunity for the Communist North to potentially wipe out a number of Western leaders, but this would no doubt precipitate the Fourth World War. In June 2009, the 27-year-old Kim Jong-un reportedly travelled to Beijing where he secretly presented himself for the approval of the Communist Chinese leadership.
