Data on Sending 150,000 Chinese Troops to North Korea Border ‘Fabrication’ – Beijing

  • In war, truth is the first casualty. The official Chinese statement may be correct ie. they are not denying the deployment of troops to the North Korean border, just the 150,000 figure. It may turn out to be less or alot more than 150,000. No military will reveal their deployment of forces truthfully in a time of war.
  • Data on Sending 150,000 Chinese Troops to North Korea Border ‘Fabrication’ – Beijing
    China’s Defense Ministry denied on Wednesday information on the alleged deployment of an additional 150,000 servicemen of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to the border with North Korea, saying the data was fabricated.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) – Various media reports alleging the deployment of troops have emerged since Monday. “The information is a total fabrication,” the Defense Ministry said, when asked if China had sent an additional contingent to the border with North Korea.

    On Saturday, an US naval strike group led by aircraft carrier Carl Vinson was sent to the Korean Peninsula. North Korea warned Tuesday of the possibility of a response to the US “aggression.”

    Earlier in the day, the Chinese Defense Ministry called on all parties involved in the situation on the Korean Peninsula to refrain from irresponsible actions.

    Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have escalated ever since North Korea carried out a number of missile launches and nuclear tests, one of the latest being a launch of four missiles in the direction of the Sea of Japan conducted March 6. The launches are considered to be in violation with the corresponding resolution adopted by the United Nations. In addition, North Korea reportedly launched on April 5 a ballistic missile from Sinpho, in the South Hamgyong province.

BREAKING: China Puts Troops on Nationwide High Alert Over North Korea

  • BREAKING: China Puts Troops on Nationwide High Alert Over North Korea
    by  |
    China has put its military on “nationwide alert” while ordering 25,000 more troops to prepare to be sent to the North Korean border as tensions build.

    Citing the Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, a nongovernmental organization in Hong Kong, the Oriental Daily News reports that Beijing has ordered troops from all five of its military regions to be on high alert due to the escalating crisis in the region.

    “Armored and mechanized infantry brigades in the provinces of Shandong, Zhejiang and Yunnan received the state mandate,” reports UPI.

    Around 25,000 troops of the Chinese military’s 47th group army of the Ninth Armored Brigade have also been told to prepare to travel long distances close to the North Korean border, while other troop divisions may also have been mobilized.

    The new maneuvers follow earlier reports that China deployed 150,000 troops along the North Korean border on Sunday.

    Yesterday, an editorial in the Global Times, which is widely seen as a mouthpiece for the ruling Chinese Communist government, let slip that Beijing was prepared to carry out its own strike on North Korea’s nuclear facilities if the Stalinist state crossed a “bottom line”.

    The editorial was subsequently deleted, almost certainly on the orders of government officials.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping urged President Trump to pursue a peaceful resolution to the crisis during a phone call between the two leaders earlier today.

    South Korean expert Cheong Seong-chang says that the United States could launch a retaliatory strike against North Korea’s nuclear reactors if the Hermit Kingdom conducts its sixth nuclear test, which could take place over the next two weeks.

    The USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group is currently steaming toward the western Pacific Ocean in a massive show of force, while reports also suggest that Seal Team 6 could be training to take out Kim Jong-un.

    The U.S. Air Force has also reportedly deployed WC-135 “nuclear sniffer” planes that specialize in detecting radioactive debris after the detonation of a nuclear device to Okinawa, Japan.

This is a good political move by China to distance itself from the warmongering KimJongUn. It also signals to the international community that they are not opposed to a air missile attack on North Korea. But Not a ground invasion. Click on image for article.

Whose side is North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on? It is the western Illuminati’s side ie. US-Pentagram. Click on image for article.

China Tells Military to be Ready to ‘Move’ to North Korea Border

China will not allow American forces on North Korean soil. I believe they will allow an attack on North Korea using missiles but not a ground invasion. This is part of China’s security policy. Any attempt to do so by America and its allies will bring in Chinese forces into the war to protect Chinese interests (ie. not North Korean interests).

  • Who do the Chinese fear the most? Not North Korea but USA. The Chinese have now created the pretext they need to deploy troops (ie. invasion) in North Korea. China is seriously concern with an American invasion force in North Korea.
  • China Tells Military to be Ready to ‘Move’ to North Korea Border
    by Elizabeth Shim,
    April 12 (UPI) — China has ordered its military to be on nationwide alert, in addition to areas near the North Korea border, as tensions escalate on the peninsula.

    The Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, a nongovernmental organization in Hong Kong, said Beijing has ordered troops at all five military “regions” to maintain preparedness because of the situation in North Korea, according to Oriental Daily News in Hong Kong.

    According to the NGO, China’s armored and mechanized infantry brigades in the provinces of Shandong, Zhejiang and Yunnan received the state mandate.

    About 25,000 troops of the Chinese military’s 47th group army of the Ninth Armored Brigade have been instructed to be ready to move long distances, close to the North Korea border, the Hong Kong-based organization said.

    Other troops may have been mobilized. According to Taiwan’s China Post, the Chinese government may have deployed about 150,000 troops along the North Korea border on Sunday, as U.S. and South Korea militaries conducted joint exercises in and around the peninsula.

    The country keeps missiles, including 12 Dongfeng-03 ballistic missiles and 24 Dongfeng-21 “Carrier-killer” missiles at the 51st rocket army station in Shenyang, Liaoning Province.

    China has become increasingly frustrated with North Korea’s missile threats.

    Following news of the U.S. deployment of the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson to the peninsula, state tabloid Global Times issued an editorial on Wednesday, saying more Chinese citizens want China to place heavier sanctions on North Korea. The Global Times English edition also issued an editorial saying China would “send out troops for sure” if military conflict is sparked on the peninsula.

    The editorial has since been removed from state websites, according to multiple sources.

Israeli Settler Runs Over, Kills Palestinian Child in West Bank

This photo provided by Arabic-language Ma’an news agency on September 10, 2016 shows slain 6-year-old Palestinian girl Lama Marwan Mousa.

This photo provided by Arabic-language Ma’an news agency on September 10, 2016 shows slain 6-year-old Palestinian girl Lama Marwan Mousa.

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Israeli Settler Runs Over, Kills Palestinian Child in West Bank
    An Israeli settler has run over and killed a six-year-old Palestinian girl on a road leading to an illegal settlement in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

    Local Palestinian sources identified the victim as Lama Marwan Mousa, adding that she was struck in al-Khader town, located 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) west of Bethlehem, on Saturday evening, Arabic-language Palestine al-Yawm news agency reported.

    Israeli ambulances were first to arrive at the scene and took away Lama’s body to an unknown location. She was declared dead shortly afterwards, according to Palestinian media.

    Local sources told the Palestinian Ma’an news agency that the girl was standing on the sidewalk in front of her house when a fast-moving vehicle approached and hit her.

    However, an unnamed Israeli police spokesman claimed that the girl was walking across the street alone when she was hit. The source said the driver had turned himself in, and that the police were investigating the incident.

    There have been scores of “hit and run” incidents targeting Palestinians in different parts of the occupied West Bank, with most of them largely going uninvestigated by Israeli authorities. Some of such events have even resulted in fatalities.

    On August 10, an Israeli settler, riding a motorbike, ran over 85-year-old Moussa Muhammad Salman near the city of Khirbat al-Marajim.

    Hasan Faraj, a relative of Salman, said the elderly man succumbed to the injuries he had sustained after he was admitted to al-Najah National University Hospital in Nablus.

    According to the latest figures released by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Israeli settlers have carried out at least 71 attacks on Palestinians and their property in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem al-Quds, so far this year, compared to a total of 221 such attacks in 2015.

    However, the perpetrators of such acts of violence are rarely punished, with Israeli police closing most cases without an indictment.

    This comes as the occupied territories have witnessed new tensions ever since Israeli forces introduced restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds in August 2015.

    Nearly 240 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces in the tensions since the beginning of last October. The violence has also killed at least 32 Israelis, two Americans, an Eritrean and a Sudanese.

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Is Trump Enlisting in The War Party? Gas Attack in Syria ‘Has the Marks of a False-Flag Operation’

  • Is Trump Enlisting in The War Party?
    Pat Buchanan: Gas attack in Syria ‘has the marks of a false-flag operation’
    By firing off five dozen Tomahawk missiles at a military airfield, our “America First” president may have plunged us into another Middle East war his countrymen do not want to fight. Thus far Bashar Assad seems unintimidated. Brushing off the strikes, he has defiantly gone back to bombing the rebels from the same Shayrat air base the U.S. missiles hit.

    Trump “will not stop here,” warned U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday. “If he needs to do more, he will.” If Trump fails to back up Haley’s threat, the hawks now cheering him on will begin deriding him as “Donald Obama.”

    But if he throbs to the war drums of John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio and orders Syria’s air force destroyed, we could be at war not only with ISIS and al-Qaida, but with Syria, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah.

    A Syrian war would consume Trump’s presidency. Are we ready for that? How would we win such a war without raising a large army and sending it back into the Middle East?

    Another problem: Trump’s missile attack was unconstitutional. Assad had not attacked or threatened us, and Congress, which alone has the power to authorize war on Syria, has never done so. Indeed, Congress denied President Obama that specific authority in 2013.

    What was Trump thinking? Here was his strategic rational:
    “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies – babies, little babies – with a chemical gas … that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line. … And I will tell you, that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me … my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much.”

    Two days later, Trump was still emoting: “Beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.”
    Assad is battling insurgents and jihadists who would slaughter his Alawite brethren and the Christians in Syria just as those Copts were massacred in Egypt on Palm Sunday. Why is Assad more responsible for all the deaths in Syria than those fighting to overthrow and kill him? Are we certain Assad personally ordered a gas attack on civilians?

    For it makes no sense. Why would Assad, who is winning the war and had been told America was no longer demanding his removal, order a nerve gas attack on children, certain to ignite America’s rage, for no military gain?

    Like the gas attack in 2013, this has the marks of a false-flag operation to stampede America into Syria’s civil war. And as in most wars, the first shots fired receive the loudest cheers. But if the president has thrown in with the neocons and War Party, and we are plunging back into the Mideast maelstrom, Trump should know that many of those who helped to nominate and elect him – to keep us out of unnecessary wars – may not be standing by him.

    We have no vital national interest in Syria’s civil war. It is those doing the fighting who have causes they deem worth dying for.

    For ISIS, it is the dream of a caliphate. For al-Qaida, it is about driving the Crusaders out of the Dar al Islam. For the Turks, it is, as always, about the Kurds.

    For Assad, this war is about his survival and that of his regime. For Putin, it is about Russia remaining a great power and not losing its last naval base in the Med. For Iran, this is about preserving a land bridge to its Shiite ally Hezbollah. For Hezbollah it is about not being cut off from the Shiite world and isolated in Lebanon.

    Because all have vital interests in Syria, all have invested more blood in this conflict than have we. And they are not going to give up their gains or goals in Syria and yield to the Americans without a fight.

    And if we go to war in Syria, what would we be fighting for?

US Missile Strike on Syria ‘a Violation of International Law’

  • Published on Apr 12, 2017
    Almost a week after President Donald Trump launched nearly 60 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase, little attention has been paid to the legality of the strikes. Questions remain as to what legal framework Trump used to justify the attack. Thomas Jefferson School of Law Professor Marjorie Cohn tells RT America’s Simone Del Rosario that the president’s action was in flagrant violation of US and international law.

  • US Missile Strike on Syria ‘a Violation of International Law’
    The US has called its attack on an airbase in Syria “a strong signal” for the Assad regime. Legal experts, however, criticized the action. In an interview with DW, international law expert Stefan Talmon explains why.

    DW: Under international law, what are the conditions for a military attack?
    Stefan Talmon: An airstrike, like any other attack on a state, requires a mandate from the UN Security Council. According to the UN Charter, all five great international powers, must, as permanent members, approve of a military attack. Or in exceptional cases – if there is no UN mandate – a case must be made for self-defense.

    When can a UN Security Council authorization be omitted? Are there exceptions?
    “Humanitarian intervention” is often discussed in international law. This includes cases in which a state uses violence or inhuman practices against its own population. In this case, one considers whether other states are allowed to intervene to protect the population from its own state and government. This is one of the justifications stated for the NATO air strikes in 1999 against Serbia in the Kosovo conflict. At that time, several states cited humanitarian intervention as a reason. This justification was then rejected by the overwhelming majority of nations so that today, we can actually say that unilateral humanitarian intervention without UN Security Council authorization is not provided for in international law. The same is valid for the so-called institution of the responsibility to protect.

    The Kosovo intervention at that time violated international law but some states tried to change international law by displaying different behavior and waiting to see how other states would react. That is how customary international law develops. A state deviates from the existing legal rules through its actions but indicates that it would like to establish new official rules. Then it must wait for the reaction of other states.

    Would this type of procedure excuse the US action in Syria?
    At the moment, they are not covered by international law. If the US requested a change in law, it would have to proactively represent its interests. It would have to present this legal position to other states for discussion. The American side has not yet done this.

Gregory Mannarino: FedRes Deliberately Created Bubbles to Save Itself

  • Published on Apr 11, 2017
    Analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino says, “The Federal Reserve has re-inflated a housing bubble. So now, those ‘toxic assets,’ those mortgage-backed securities are worth something. Now, they are going to sell these at a profit. The profit should going to the poor people who were kicked out of their houses and lost everything. That is not going to happen. The Federal Reserve has deliberately created bubbles to save themselves. If the Federal Reserve allowed the markets to do it’s one and only job, and that is to determine fair value, we’d be out of the woods by now. We wouldn’t be facing another war right now. They refused to do this. The free market has been stolen. We really could be on the edge of a major event that would force people into the debt market. There could be huge amounts of cash coming out of the stock market because of all this fear. There could be massive amounts of cash going into suppressed assets like gold and silver. Housing could come under pressure. We could be staring at the next real Great Depression.”

    In closing, Mannarino says, “The global debt problem is going to get monumentally worse. Let’s see anyone argue that. Does anyone here believe that the global debt problem is going to get better? That should tell you what you need to do. This is like adding 2 + 2. This should be so simple for people to understand what they need to do. . . . If you want to hold those pieces of paper with numbers printed on them, they are unbacked liabilities being dispersed by bankrupted governments. If you want to hold that, good for you. I can promise you I am going to be taking the opposite side to that trade, and I will win.”
