Theory is that the Iran payments were made in pure cash so that it funds the NK nuclear programs
If you read the Q graphic and think about it this makes sense
Also, NK is said by Q to be secretly controlled by a power that's so shocking that the American people would riot if they found out.
So my bet is it's not china or Russia controlling NK since that wouldn't cause riots too large. Q also asked stuff about people leaving NK and belonging to the USA. Some things I've seen indicate the deep state controls the Kim dynasty as some kind of weapon they own to distract and terrorise Americans.
Q also said that the mountain collapse was likely the good guys.
All in all it's a deep state versus USA the military and the good guys.
Trump recruited SA monarch to the good guys hence their purge of the DNC tied elements (Godfather III) and him trying for the last few months to solidify his son as the next in line ruler (over brothers who inherit traditionally). His son seems to be in with the good guys.
China is apparently kind of in the same boat. They're also recruited by trump recently.
NK was allegedly offered some type of deal.
Now what remains is to crush the deep state. To do that you need to get the various global factions to deal and come on board with you.
SA is key to their finances and thus we saw the November 4 antifa rallies fail.
