Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 17, 2018

They are just saying what all the little Bolton’s in Washington tell them to say.

As news of the statement by the North Korean vice minister for foreign affairs Kim Kye Gwan spread, the usual suspects could hardly contain their glee: Trump’s vaunted Korean peace initiative had been a fraud all along! The summit was off! The North Koreans had been faking it, and Mr. Art of the Deal had been taken for a ride! Hurrah! Hurray! From Nicholas Kristof to Bill Kristol, the celebration was loud and the Twitterverse resounded with unrestrained gloating: finally the President’s enemies had earned the right to say “We told you so!”

Or so they thought. There’s just one problem, however: the celebrants are wrong… Read the rest of this entry »

North Korea threatens to CANCEL nuclear summit with Trump because it believes ‘provocative military ruckus’ of joint U.S.-South Korea drills are rehearsal for invasion

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 16, 2018

War games before a peace conference! Isn’t that special!

What other nation would have this as part of their foreign policy?

I see visions of McCain, Bolton, Lindsay Graham and McDonnell Douglas at work. Trump is not in complete control, that is for sure.

North Korea‘s government says it is considering calling off a planned nuclear summit between dictator Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Kim’s regime said through state-run news agency KCNA that ongoing ‘Max Thunder’ joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea are actually a ‘rehearsal for invasion’ of the North…

The Message America Sent to North Korea by Nuking the Iran Deal

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 12, 2018

Written by

(ANTIMEDIA) U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent decision to completely pull the plug on the 2015 Iranian nuclear accord, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), will likely have a major effect on the upcoming summit between North Korea and the United States. Even as the president was making his announcement, newly appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was reportedly on his way to North Korea to prepare for Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un.

Bloomberg reported prior to the decision that North Korea was watching Trump’s announcement on Iran, with China’s current envoy to the U.K. warning that if Trump walked away it would “set a bad example.”

South Korean Intel Services Say North Korea Strongly Committed to Denuclearization – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 28, 2018

Not if John Bolton has his way.

One might think SK would know what it is talking about but then we in the US are not used to that.

South Korean MP Young Chin and North Korean official Ri Jong Hyuk meet in Geneva

The bigger news was in South Korea, however, where the National Intelligence Service (NIS) offered a report to the National Assembly on the peace process, saying they believe “North Korea is strongly committed to dialogue and also committed to denuclearization.”

Bolton Wants Preventive War Against North Korea | The American Conservative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 23, 2018

First Bolton should ask himself why we keep getting beaten by barely out of the stone age countries ever since 1950. Has war made us better off? S

Always ask yourself cui bono. It usually isn’t you or me.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/larison/bolton-wants-preventive-war-against-north-korea/

By Daniel Larison

John Bolton defends preventive war against North Korea, but he won’t call it by that name:

Pre-emption opponents argue that action is not justified because Pyongyang does not constitute an “imminent threat.” They are wrong. The threat is imminent, and the case against pre-emption rests on the misinterpretation of a standard that derives from prenuclear, pre-ballistic-missile times.

The concepts of preemption and imminent threat have been so thoroughly warped by the Iraq war debate that their proper meanings have been all but lost. Preemption means striking before an impending attack occurs, but there is no such attack being prepared by North Korea. If the U.S. strikes North Korea first under these circumstances, our government would be committing an act of aggression pure and simple. There would be no preemption, because there would be no attack to preempt. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump agrees to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 9, 2018

First thought. Would Hillary have met Kim over over a table rather than the battlefield? What do you think?

https://nypost.com/2018/03/08/north-korean-leader-kim-jong-un-invites-trump-to-meet/

By Joe Tacopino

President Trump has agreed to sit-down with his North Korean nemesis Kim Jong-Un sometime in the next two months to discuss stripping the hermit nation of its nuclear arsenal, it was announced Thursday.

The historic meeting was brokered by the South Korean government, which delivered the invitation to the White House and divulged the details outside the West Wing…

Intelligence That Neither Hears Nor Sees – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 28, 2018

On February 13, the American intelligence community issued its Worldwide Threat Assessment. It is a frightening document to read. On North Korea, the agencies that hear everything cannot seem to hear anything North Korea has said; on Iran, the agencies that see everything cannot seem to see what they have long known.

Yes, the United States Used Biowarfare on North Korea

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 22, 2018

Koreans have a long memory, at least compared to US. It is no wonder they want to develop a nuclear counter threat.

Oh ya, we still use napalm in the ME. Israel uses white phos, does the same job as napalm just not as messy. Chemical weapons.

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2018/02/yes-united-states-used-biowarfare-north-korea.html

It’s sort of silly that it matters. The United States bombed North Korea flat with ordinary, non-bioweapons bombs. It ran out of standing structures to bomb. People lived in caves, if they lived. Millions died, most of them from regular old non-scandalous but mass-murderous bombs (including, of course, Napalm which melts people but doesn’t give them exotic diseases). North Koreans to this day live in such terror of a repetition of history that their behavior is sometimes inexplicable and bewildering to Americans whose knowledge of history comes from watching game shows.

Make Sports, Not War – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 10, 2018

Washington does not want a lessening of tensions between the two Koreas. And much less, talk of potential reunification. If the two Koreas came to peace, what justification would the US have for keeping powerful air, land and naval forces in strategic South Korea, often called ‘America’s unsinkable aircraft carrier.’ Japan is no more favorable to a united Korea.

The highlight of the games was the arrival of Kim Yo-jong, the younger sister of North Korea’s ruler, Kim Jong-un. This was the first time a member of North Korea’s ruling Kim dynasty had come to South Korea. Her handshake with South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in was a historic and welcome moment.

But not for US Vice President Mike Pence, who was sent by Trump to give the Olympics the evil eye. He even refused to stand for the joint marchers in a surly act that spoke volumes about his role. Whether he meets President Moon or Kim Yo-jong remains to be seen. Even a cup of tea between Pence and Kim could end all the crazy talk about nuclear war. Does anyone in Washington know that North Korea lies between China and Russia?

South Korea’s able president Moon is moving heaven and earth to prevent a war in which his nation would be the main victim. Some 2-3 million Korean civilians died in the 1950-53 Korean War. All North Korea and much of South Korea were bombed flat by US air power. Now, as tensions surge, US heavy bombers and nuclear weapons ring North Korea, ready to flatten the north and make the rubble bounce.

North Korea’s thousands of heavy guns dug into mountains just north of the DMZ (I’ve seen them) could flatten all of South Korea’s capitol, Seoul, north of the Han River, killing millions, not counting nukes and poison gas. South Korea, the world’s eleventh industrial power, would again pay the terrible price for a new war on the peninsula…

War with N Korea would cause horrible destruction no matter whom attacked whom. Half a million US troops, poison gas, biological weapons, nukes, Seoul GONE- MCViewPoint
