has many ways to infiltrate the mind, body and soul. One
technique is to burrow deep into the marrow of the earth, creating
nefarious tunnels that form conduits for Fear, Intimidation and
Complacency. The North Koreans have been digging such
tunnels for decades, preparing for an invasion of South Korea.
See how the Beast works, gnawing at ways to infiltrate nations, states
and human minds with its venoms. Learn how to bury the Beast of
Terror in his own Tunnels of Terrorism.

How To Bury The Beast of Terror In His Tunnels of Terrorism
Editor, New York City Combat Correspondent News
GROUND ZERO, New York City, Jan. 21--Deep in
the soil that separates North and South Korea tunnels dug as deep as
220 feet exist below the surface, capable of moving 15,000 North
Korean soldiers an hour undetected into the heart of South Korea.
Some are large enough for vehicles to traverse, filled with supplies,
weapons and other tools of war. They are the secret passageways
for the Beast of Terror.
Korean passageways prepared for the Beast of Terror
The earliest reports of tunnel
building go back to September 25, 1971, after Kim Il-sung issued the
Combat Readiness Order. He ordered the
digging of infiltration tunnels, saying, "blitz tactics are the only
means to enable North Korea to liberate South Korea, and one tunnel
must be regarded as effective as 10 nuclear weapons."
with son Kim Jong Il
Kim Il-sun, the chief of state
of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea from 1948 until his death
in 1994, passed the leadership of his country to his son, Kim Jong Il,
upon his death. Kim Jong Il is currently defying the world by
manufacturing nuclear weapons in violation of the nuclear
non-proliferation treaty. Apparently, the son of the
father believes that nuclear weapons plus infiltration tunnels magnify
Intelligence gatherers estimate
at least 21 tunnels exist in a variety of forms. Only four have
been exposed, (see below), and each discovery creates extreme denial from the North
that they have anything to do with their construction.
North Korea, wracked with
famine and economic discontent because its military consumes over 50
percent of the nation's revenues, poses a constant threat to its
prosperous lower half, South Korea.
Intelligence pundits argue that
the North is preparing for a confrontation with the South, to tap into
its riches by exercising Terrorism's greatest negotiating tools--Fear,
Intimidation and Complacency.
The 21 tunnels are examples of
its belief in a first-strike policy. Few question that if military
force is used to thwart the rebuilding of North Korea's nuclear bomb
making capacity that it won't launch Korean War II by attacking South
Korea and any country which supports military actions against it.
The issue of the infiltration
tunnels is symbolic of how the Beast of Terror works to undermine the
stability of a nation and, in the case of North Korea, upset the world
Terror gnawing into the hearts of South Koreans
For thirty years the
tunnels have been under construction. Like a cancer
gnawing deep under one's flesh, the host was either unaware of the
growing danger or Complacent about acting to treat the illness.
No one knows how many
tunnels and how far they extend, but the best guesses are they empty
in strategic locations that could bring hoards of North Koreans into
the heart of South Korea's major cities like termite ants popping out
of the ground.
I had some
experience with the tunneling impact of the enemy. In Vietnam
the Viet Cong successfully used them to operate beneath our feet.
Many villages were mazes of tunnels, offering the enemy quick escapes
when we passed through, and allowed them to pop up and snipe at us and
then retreat to the underground mazes.
Such tunneling is
an example of the long-term thought into protecting the offense of any
nation. The earth is the great treasure chest, protecting
those within from detection as well as offering a safe haven for
storing weapons and supplies.
suspected that tunnels in Iraq and underground facilities similar to
those in North Korea contain the weapons of mass destruction that
Saddam Hussein is allegedly guarding from U.N. weapons inspectors.
Finding them is as difficult as finding Osama bin Laden, who also is
suspected of living in a cave somewhere.
tunnels of North Korea are more than mere examples of preparations for
war. They are symbols of how the Beast of Terror works
within us all.
Intimidation and Complacency have sharp teeth. Each likes
to burrow into our minds and to take command of our thoughts.
North Koreans, the Triad of Terrorism--Fear, Intimidation and
Complacency--gnaws its way into our thoughts and feelings.
It creeps up on us, slowly, secretively, insidiously. The
goal of the three elements of Terrorism is to go unnoticed,
have pangs of Fear or shirk from problems in the shadow of
Intimidation, or, we resign ourselves that we can't overcome the
oppression of our situation and fall Complacent, we are letting
ourselves fall victim to the Termites of Terrorism. They
chew through our Courage, Conviction and Right Actions, weakening our
constitutions, making us feel "less than," or "impotent," or
"victimized," until they have consumed us totally, brought us to our
knees where we shout, "Live Sucks!" or some variation thereof.
where the Pledge of Vigilance comes to our rescue.
Pledge is not unlike a Terrorism Tunnel Detector.
scans our underpinnings for flaws created by Fear, Intimidation and
Complacency. It is our intelligence gathering system,
sniffing like a bloodhound for the scent of the Beast of Terror, who,
like a badger, claws at the earth beneath our skin, burrowing into our
dark thoughts in an attempt to suffocate our Courage, Conviction and
Right Actions from within.
Beast of Terror is not different from a cancer in us. It chews
at our resolve to stand up for what we believe. It makes us think we
have no Voice in our lives, and if we do, what we say or think falls
on deaf, uninterested ears. The Beast of Terror likes to
crisscross and weave its tunnels through our Confidence and Self
Worth, shaking our foundations and making us see the dim light of the
future fading and snuff the sunlight of Hope that our lives will
become better, that we will be able to escape the rut we have dug for
ourselves where it seems there is no escape.
The Pledge of
Vigilance can be our surveillance satellite
But if we look to the Pledge of Vigilance as our surveillance
satellite, scanning the earth below and detecting the rumblings of the
Beast of Terror as he tunnels within us, carving our Self-Esteem into
bits and pieces, chewing on our Self Worth and Self Actualization as a
viable, growing human being with the ability to rise above our
deficits, we can battle the Beast and crumble the tunnels he burrows
with the intent of attacking us at will, rendering us helpless to his
tunnels in North Korea serve as an example of Complacency.
For three decades knowledge of the tunnels has existed, yet a
concerted effort to find and destroy them has failed. The
result is the growth of the North Korean Beast of Terror to a critical
Not only is
South Korea threatened from above the ground, but it sweats out the
thought of thousands of North Koreans per hour rushing through the
tunnels and popping up in the midst of their cities, threatening the
populace, the women, children and the children's children's children.
We need to
take the example of North Korea's Beast of Terror Tunnels to our own
hearts and souls, and ask ourselves: "Am I letting the Beast of
Terror dig Terror Tunnels in me?" And, if I am, what am I
doing to stop their extension and proliferations?
Beast with the light of Vigilance
A fast and
expeditious way to counter the Beast of Terror Tunnels is the Pledge
of Vigilance. If you read it each day, and imagine that inside you is
the Beast clawing and digging its way at the foundations of your
strength, you can shine the light of discovery on the Beast.
He hates the Light of Knowledge. Your spotlight will
frighten him. He will run the other way when he realizes
Courage, Conviction and Right Actions are his obstacle, for he knows
he cannot combat them and win. The Beast only wins through
surprise attacks, through hitting hard and fast and running, like all
You can fight
the Beast by simply vowing your Vigilance. He will hear
your words and know you know he is within, trying to carve you into a
thousand pieces of Fear, Intimidation and Complacency. He
will run when you state your Vow of Vigilance for his tunnels will
collapse. They will be filled with granite of your
convictions, and the resolve of your purpose to stand tall in the face
of Fear, Intimidation and Complacency.
Take the Pledge of
Bury the Beast of
Terror in his own Tunnels of Terrorism.
