    "Choose North Korea Or The US": White House Releases Details On Latest N.Korean Sanctions
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...orea-sanctions


    Earlier, when we discussed Trump's latest executive order launching new sanctions on North Korea,
    we got a big picture of the crackdown but not the details.
    Moments ago, however, the White House unveiled the full breakdown of what Trump's latest crackdown on North Korea will involve.

    Among other things, not only will the latest crackdown on NKorea include
    sanctions
    "on any foreign financial institution that knowingly conducts or facilitates any significant transaction
    on behalf of certain designated individuals and entities"


    but also on trade,
    "issues a 180-day ban on vessels and aircraft that have visited North Korea from visiting the United States"
    and
    "also targets vessels that have engaged in a ship-to-ship transfer with a vessel that has visited North Korea within 180 days."


    Ultimately, the White House says,
    "foreign financial institutions must choose between doing business with the United States
    or facilitating trade with North Korea or its designated supporters."


    * * *

    The full statement:

    FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS: The E.O. provides the authority to impose sanctions on any foreign financial institution that knowingly conducts or facilitates any significant transaction on behalf of certain designated individuals and entities, or any significant transaction in connection with trade with North Korea, on or after the date of the E.O.

    Under this new authority, the sanctions measures can be either restrictions on correspondent or payable-through accounts or blocking sanctions.
    The E.O. also provides the Secretary of the Treasury additional authority to block any funds originating from, destined for, or passing through accounts linked to North Korea that come within the United States or possession of a U.S. person.
    Foreign financial institutions must choose between doing business with the United States or facilitating trade with North Korea or its designated supporters.

    TRADE: The E.O. directly targets North Korea's shipping and trade networks and issues a 180-day ban on vessels and aircraft that have visited North Korea from visiting the United States. This ban also targets vessels that have engaged in a ship-to-ship transfer with a vessel that has visited North Korea within 180 days. North Korea is dependent on its shipping networks to facilitate international trade.
    The E.O. also authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to impose sanctions on persons involved in:

    Industries: The construction, energy, financial services, fishing, information technology, manufacturing, medical, mining, textiles, or transportation industries in North Korea;
    Ports: Ownership, control, or operation of any port in North Korea, including any seaport, airport, or land port of entry;
    Imports/Exports: at least one significant importation from or exportation to North Korea of any goods, services, or technology.

    * * *

    In conclusion,
    it is clear that this move is aimed at another crackdown on Russia:
    with media reports already suggesting that Russia has been "feeding" North Korea by ship,
    we estimate that within a week,
    "news" will emerge that Russia has broken Trump's executive order,
    and that will serve to block out one or more Russian financial institutions,
    perhaps growing to "SWIFT" out the entire Russian banking system
    as Trump slowly but surely follows the MIC's escalation script to a tee.

    I love how "sanctions and diplomacy" vs. "war" makes sense to people.

    Sanctions are war. They are siege tactics. You starve the enemy within its walls, hoping the people, forced to eat their pets and starving children will overthrow the leader.

    Koreans will eat grass and locusts, $#@! in buckets, and sleep in bunkers and still think Kim Jong-Un is a God. They don't care. Paper tiger, couch potato Americans on the other hand, would probably lynch the entire political establishment and their families, if gasoline went up $2 and EBT cards got shut off.

    Anyway, everyone knows this is proxy war with Russia/China just like it was 60 years ago. Trump probably thinks he's a martyr having to "lie to us to protect us". Since he's all "enlightened" now with the secret knowledge of "what's really happening".

    Same boring old story.
    What now?

    The South said it aimed to send $4.5 million worth of nutritional products for children and pregnant women
    through the World Food Programme
    and $3.5 million worth of vaccines and medicinal treatments through UNICEF.

    “We have consistently said we would pursue humanitarian aid for North Korea
    in consideration of the poor conditions children and pregnant women are in there, apart from political issues,”
    said Unification Minister Cho Myong-gyon.
