Why is North Korea an American Problem? – Former Diplomat

  • Published on May 15, 2017
    After a series of failed launches, North Korea recently carried out its most advanced missile test to date, shocking and unnerving the world. While it suggests Pyongyang may be capable of far longer-range missiles than was previously believed, it is unclear whether it will be able to effectively weaponize them. Former diplomat Jim Jatras joins “News with Ed,” bringing his insights and expertise.

Why all the secrecy? And why deny Japan info? North Korea is controlled opposition. Kim Jong Un is a Illuminist puppet of the west. NKorea is used to control South Korea and Japan. To prevent them from joining China and allow the deployment of US military bases for the encirclement of China and Russia. Click on image to goto article.

Germany and NATO: Preparing for a Fascist Repression in Europe?

WW3 is near?

  • Germany and NATO – Preparing for a Fascist Repression in Europe?
    by Peter Koenig, http://www.thesaker.is/
    While Washington is in turmoil, Trump’s firing of FBI’s Director Comey being hailed by some, condemned by others and questioned with innuendo by yet another group of critics, it looks like the U-turn The Donald has supposedly made a few weeks ago, is fizzling out – into a cloud of confusion and chaos. And who are the beneficiaries of this chaos? – The Neocon-Zion-Democrats, who else?


    Is Trump becoming, or has already become a Banana Republic dictator? Should he be tried as war criminal along with Obama, Bush, Clinton and their illustrious predecessors, all the way back to JFK and beyond, including those who instigated world wars and conflicts around the globe for the last 200 years? Sadly, there is no justice left in so-called international courts of justice today. They have all been coopted by the hidden bloody fingers, pulling the strings on Washington and Brussels.

    Is Trump’s government about to collapse from the pressure of the Neocon-Zion-Demo-Division of the Deep State? Speculations no end, with emerging suggestion that the controversial President had already committed enough unconventional deeds to be impeached; and Russiagate, one of them, is just not going away, despite all logic to the contrary. It is another reflection of the idiocy of the presstitute media. But they get away with it, as long as brainwashed masses still swallow the mass-media’s lies and deceptions in their comfortable armchairs. The swamp in Washington is steaming – and about to swallow politicians from all walks.

    Will there be a nuclear war? Who will strike first? Western war-mongering Pentagon and NATO generals hope – that the US will launch a pre-emptive strike against Russia and /or China. It would most likely be triggered by a false flag. For example, North Korea is made believe having launched a (nuclear) attack on Japan. Speculations to this effect have already circulated.

    But what if Russia’s early warning system which is based on top-notch technology, detects such an intended first strike and reacts instantly? An atomic WWIII – with full destruction and almost no survivors? All these realistic ideas are tossed up and down – leaving a public on either side of the Atlantic in fear. And we know that fear and confusion are the best weapons to panic and stalemate a population.

    Who will survive? – Who will be next? And some even go as far as speculating, who may replace President Trump? – Most obviously, his Vice President, Mike Pence, who fits the neocons’ gambit very well. After all, they were the ones who chose him on Trump’s behalf.

Russian Lt. General: US Wants to Nuke Russia, China And Use Missile Shield to Prevent Retaliation

WW3 is near?

  • Russian Lt. General: US Wants to Nuke Russia, China And Use Missile Shield to Prevent Retaliation
    by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation, via http://www.infowars.com
    Of course, it’s completely psychotic to want to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia or China.

    According to Russian Lieutenant General Viktor Poznikhir, the US is surrounding Russia and China with missile defense systems in order to launch a “sudden nuclear strike” and prevent any retaliation.

    The US has said recently it’s installing anti-ballistic missile systems in Poland and Romania to prevent Iran from attacking Europe and in South Korea to prevent North Korea from attacking South Korea and Japan.

    Poznikhir is suggesting the real reason for these systems is to allow the US to launch a nuclear strike on Russia or China and prevent either nation from retaliating, as their own nuclear missiles would be shot down by the US government’s ABM systems — at least in a best case scenario.

Washington NeoCons Believe that the US Can Win a Nuclear War Against Russia and China with Minimum Damage

World War 3 is near?

  • Washington NeoCons Believe that the US Can Win a Nuclear War Against Russia and China with Minimum Damage
    by Paul Craig Roberts, http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/
    Sauron Rules in Washington
    “The problem is that the world has listened to Americans for far too bloody long.”  — Dr. Julian Osborne, from the 2000 film version of Nevil Shute’s 1957 book, On the Beach 

    A reader asked why neoconservatives push toward nuclear war when there can be no winners. If all die, what is the point? The answer is that the neoconservatives believe that the US can win at minimum and perhaps zero damage.

    Their insane plan is as follows: Washington will ring Russia and China with anti-ballistic missile bases in order to provide a shield against a retaliatory strike from Russia and China. Moreover, these US anti-ABM bases also can deploy nuclear attack missiles unknown to Russia and China, thus reducing the warning time to five minutes, leaving Washington’s victims little or no time in which to make a decision.

    The neoconservatives think that Washington’s first strike will so badly damage the Russian and Chinese retaliatory capabilities that both governments will surrender rather than launch a response. The Russian and Chinese leaderships would conclude that their diminished forces leave little chance that many of their ICBMs will be able to get past Washington’s ABM shield, leaving the US largely intact. A feeble retaliation by Russia and China would simply invite a second wave US nuclear attack that would obliterate Russian and Chinese cities, killing millions and leaving both countries in ruins.

    In short, the American warmongers are betting that the Russian and Chinese leaderships would submit rather than risk total destruction. There is no question that neoconservatives are sufficiently evil to launch a preemptive nuclear attack, but possibly the plan aims to put Russia and China into a situation in which their leaders conclude that the deck is stacked against them and, therefore, they must accept Washington’s hegemony.

    To feel secure in its hegemony, Washington would have to order Russia and China to disarm.

    This plan is full of risks. Miscalculations are a feature of war. It is reckless and irresponsible to risk the life of the planet for nothing more than Washington’s hegemony.

    The neoconservative plan puts Europe, the UK, Japan, S. Korea, and Australia at high risk were Russia and China to retaliate. Washington’s ABM shield cannot protect Europe from Russia’s nuclear cruise missiles or from the Russian Air Force, so Europe would cease to exist. China’s response would hit Japan, S. Korea, and Australia.

Japan Deploys Warship To Support US ‘Armada’, Authorizes “Necessary Use Of Weapons” For First Time Since World War II

  • Japan Deploys Warship To Support US ‘Armada’, Authorizes “Necessary Use Of Weapons” For First Time Since World War II
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    In a post-World War II precedent-setting move (under the country’s expanded military doctrine), the Japanese Navy has reportedly deployed a helicopter carrier (and authorized it to use weapons, if necessary), to escort and protect a US supply vessel.

    Defense Minister Tomomi Inada ordered the Izumo Maritime Self-Defense Force helicopter carrier to protect a US Navy supply ship, which is heading towards the Pacific to resupply the American armada sent by Donald Trump to keep North Korean nuclear ambitions at bay, sources told Kyodo news.

    The Japanese helicopter carrier is set to depart Yokosuka port in Kanagawa Prefecture to Monday to escort the US Navy supply ship from waters off the Boso Peninsula, near Tokyo, to the area off Shikoku, one of the four main islands of Japan. Japanese media reports that the US ship could be delivering supplies to the aircraft carrier – the USS Carl Vinson striking group, that is now conducting a joint exercise with South Korea’s navy in the Sea of Japan. To ensure success of their escort mission, the Japanese seamen have been authorized the “minimum necessary use of weapons,” to deter any attacks amid North Korean threats to sink US ships, the Japan Times reports.

    As RT notes,
    Monday’s Izumo deployment will set a new milestone for the Japanese Navy which has not escorted any military vessels, outside of troop exercises, since the adoption of a pacifist constitution following Japan’s defeat in World War II.  In 2015, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the ruling Liberal Democratic Party passed legislation to allow the country’s military to participate in foreign conflicts, overturning its previous policy of fighting only in self-defense. Since the Japanese constitution only allowed Japanese armed forces to act in self-defense,
    the legislation reinterpreted the relevant passages to allow the military to operate with overseas allies in “collective self-defense.”

Japan Is Dumping A Record Amount Of Foreign Bonds: Here Are The Implications

  • Japan Is Dumping A Record Amount Of Foreign Bonds: Here Are The Implications
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    Back in February, around the time Bloomberg caught up to what we had been discussing for the past year, namely the historic dumping of US Treasurys by offshore official investors (such as central banks and reserve managers, just as the selling had in fact reversed and foreigners had resumed buying once more) we noticed that it was not China but Japan that had emerged as one of the most aggressive sellers of Treasuries following material Mark-to-Market losses on existing TSY holdings, prompting the foremost ex-Fed shadow banking expert Zoltan Poszar to declare the selling “a deer in the headlights moment”.

    Fast forward two months, when according to the latest update from Deutsche Bank, Japan’s revulsion to fixed income products has accelerateed, and the Pacific island was a net seller of foreign bonds again in the past week, divesting another $12bn worth of securities. It was not only the third straight week of selling out of Japan, according to MOF data, but more remarkably, the the year-to-date divestment of $66bn in foreign bonds YTD is the biggest since 2002, the first full year of such data is available.

It’s Time to Stop Pretending North Korea Is a Threat to the United States

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).

  • The real war is between: US vs China. North Korea is really the hook to trigger it. Emphasis mine:
  • It’s Time to Stop Pretending North Korea Is a Threat to the United States
    by , http://theantimedia.org/
    (ANTIMEDIA Op-Ed) North Korea is a threat, goes the narrative. And we, as loyal Americans, should fear the potentiality of that fact. 

    That’s why U.S. aircraft carriers, accompanied by fighter jets and warships, are currently steaming toward the Korean Peninsula. That’s why the best soldiers the United States military has to offer are currently in South Korea, training — goes the narrative — to take out Kim Jong-un.

    That’s why Japan, staunch U.S. ally, is considering deploying troops to South Korea — in preparation for the time when that evil dictator from the north will try to harm Japanese nationals in the south. Conveniently, if Japan does deploy those troops — and, let’s be honest, they will — that will put the coalition of Japan, South Korea, and the United States together on the Korean peninsula.

    Consider that for a moment. They actually want us to believe that it would take the combined military might of the U.S., Japan, and South Korea to take out Kim Jong-un. There literally is no other way to look at it.

    As in all cases when it comes to geopolitical analysis, it helps to look at a map. North Korea is sandwiched between a U.S.-occupied territory to the south and a global superpower, China, to the north.

    In what universe does it make sense that Kim Jong-un would think attacking an “enemy” in the region would be beneficial? On Monday, Anti-Media reported on the fact that former Pentagon chief William Perry told CNN in November that North Korea would never strike first because, very simply, Kim doesn’t want to die.

    “I do not believe the North Korean regime is suicidal,”
    he said. “Therefore, I don’t believe they’re going to launch an unprovoked nuclear attack on anyone.”

    That’s because Kim has certainly applied to the situation what the mainstream narrative would like you to discard — common sense. With just a dash of it, any logical being can look at the events unfolding and see that North Korea poses no threat, to any surrounding nation, period.

    Which poses an immediate question: Why the military buildup in South Korea?

    China, incidentally, reportedly just deployed 150,000 troops to its border with North Korea. Much like Japan, the reason given was preparation. Preparation for war was the message between the words.

    But it wouldn’t be war with North Korea. That tiny strip of land is merely the buffer between two military juggernauts, the United States and China. That’s World War III, friends, and it has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un.

Fears Rise of U.S. Strike on North Korea: Trump’s National Security Adviser Says ‘All Options are on the Table’ as the President Sets His Sights on Key Targets

  • Fears Rise of U.S. Strike on North Korea: Trump’s National Security Adviser Says ‘All Options are on the Table’ as the President Sets His Sights on Key Targets
    by LARISA BROWN FOR THE DAILY MAIL, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/
    * After failed missile test Lt Gen HR McMaster said ‘all our options are on the table’ to try to ‘avoid the worst’
    * Frantic talks were taking place with allies including China to ‘develop a range of options’ regarding N Korea
    * Mr Trump and Lt Gen HR McMaster hope China would convince its neighbour to stop the crisis escalating

    The US refused to rule out a pre-emptive strike on North Korea last night as Donald Trump‘s national security adviser warned the situation was ‘coming to a head’. After the rogue state ran a missile test that failed, Lieutenant General HR McMaster said ‘all our options are on the table’ to try to ‘avoid the worst’. Frantic talks were taking place with allies including China to ‘develop a range of options’ in an attempt to quell tensions and calm fears of thermo-nuclear war.

    But, with a strike group of US forces already posted to the Korean Peninsula, the US President added further fuel to the fire, saying he had been forced to beef up his military. On Twitter, Mr Trump wrote: ‘Our military is building and is rapidly becoming stronger than ever before. Frankly, we have no choice.’

    Mr Trump and General McMaster said they hoped China would convince its neighbour, which depends on Beijing to prop up its trades and finances, to stop the crisis escalating.

    On Saturday dictator Kim Jong-un’s regime displayed its military muscle in a huge parade, before yesterday’s missile test which exploded within seconds. The medium-range missile – fired from a base in the Sinpo area – ended in farce because it ‘blew up almost immediately’, sources said. The US Pacific Command said it believed it to be a ballistic missile, which is initially powered and guided, but then uses gravity to fall to its target.

    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    Video has been released allegedly showing a mass military mobilization in Vladivostok, Russia, just eight miles from the border with North Korea, as the world edges towards war.

    As The Express reports, the dramatic move, unconfirmed by the Russian government, was spotted by residents in the border city and posted on social media.

    According to the reports, a military convoy of eight surface-to-air missiles, part of Russian Air Defence, were on the move.

    The S400 anti-aircraft missiles were moved to Vladivostok, where Vladimir Putin already has a major navy base. Furthermore, As the following footage shows (beginning at aorund 1:20 below) Chinese military assets are also being moved to the North Korean border… (video top of post)

    In addition to military forces, AP reports China and Russia have dispatched intelligence-gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is heading toward waters near the Korean Peninsula, multiple sources of the Japanese government revealed to The Yomiuri Shimbun.
