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

UN Sanctions Forbid North Korea Hockey Players Getting Hockey Sticks – Antiwar.com Blog

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 8, 2018

All because Washington fears peace will break out.

Notice how people are affected but not government. That is how sanctions are supposed to work. The downtrodden, who are made to suffer even more, will rebel.

Hasn’t worked in N Korea so far. Never worked in Cuba. Didn’t work in Iraq. Won’t work in Iran or Russia.

https://www.antiwar.com/blog/2018/02/07/un-sanctions-forbid-north-korea-hockey-players-getting-hockey-sticks/

When the US and UN try to impose new sanctions on North Korea, as they do every few weeks, the question that inevitably rises is: what’s left to sanction. The Winter Olympics are underscoring just how far this has already gone.

Just participating in the hockey event is a challenge. North Korea is forbidden, by UN sanctions, from buying hockey sticks, because they’re “recreational sporting equipment.” In past events, North Korean participants have had to borrow all sticks, and return them before leaving.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. North Korea also has to find a third party to supply uniforms for them, because the uniform sponsor, Nike, is afraid that doing business with them will violate US sanctions…

Samsung is giving all the Olympics participants Galaxy Note 8 phones, but some are claiming they count as “dual use” because of their processing power and GPS capabilities. The suggestion again is North Korea might be forced to give phones back at the end of the event.

Kissinger: ‘Temptation to Deal’ with North Korea ‘with a Pre-emptive Attack is Strong’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 2, 2018

As Henry should know, any US military intervention is likely to turn out badly for everyone. We study history then ignore what it tells us.

The current North Korean trajectory, Kissinger continued, could lead to nuclear proliferation throughout Asia, as he believes South Korea will not accept being the only Korea without nuclear capability. Japan will follow suit, he said.

The trajectory is due to fear of being attacked. These guys aren’t stupid. They know if they go nuclear we are more likely leave them alone.

They also know US promises not to attack if nuke programs are stopped are lies. They remember Iraq, Libya. That history thing again.

Gabbard: Trump should talk to North Korea ‘immediately’ after Hawaii false alarm – POLITICO

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 15, 2018

Gabbard speaks the truth and has foreign policy common sense. It is a wonder McCain and the pentagram have allowed her to stay in office. 

Don’t hold your breath for any denuclearization. NK will remain nuclear because of what happened to Iraq and Libya after they agreed with US to forego nuclear development.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/14/hawaii-false-alarm-gabbard-trump-korea-340293

 “Our country’s history of regime change war has led countries like North Korea to develop and hold on to these nuclear weapons because they see it as their only deterrent against regime change. And this is what’s important for President Trump to recognize,” she said.

“It is critical that we end our policy, the regime change wars, to provide that credible guarantee that the United States is not going to go in and topple the North Korean regime so that these conversations can begin toward denuclearization.”

Little Rocket Man Wins the Round – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 13, 2018

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/01/patrick-j-buchanan/little-rocket-man-wins-the-round/

 For the American Imperium, our system of alliances, is held together by a credible commitment: If you attack any of our scores of allies, you are at war with the United States.

From the Baltic to the Black Sea to the Persian Gulf, from the South China Sea to Korea and Japan today, the costs and the risks of maintaining the imperium are growing.

With all these promissory notes out there — guarantees to go to war for other nations — one is inevitably going to be called.

And this generation of Americans, unaware of what their grandfathers obligated them to do, will demand to know, as they did in Iraq and Afghanistan: What are we over doing there, on the other side of the world?

America First is more than a slogan.

North Korea Is Walking Back War – And Pundits Are Strangely Disappointed – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 11, 2018

Why make agreements when you can bomb them back to the stoneage, make them a puppet and make $Billions for the MIC?

But as the pentagram continues to re-learn, once the shooting starts the plans go all to hell.

http://original.antiwar.com/feffer/2018/01/10/north-korea-walking-back-war-pundits-strangely-disappointed/

In talks this week at the DMZ, South Korea welcomed the participation of North Korea in the upcoming Winter Olympics. The two countries also discussed restarting reunions of divided families and reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula. Earlier, both sides reestablished their hotline.

All of this adult conversation is a welcome change from the war of epithets between the “dotard” president of the United States and the “little rocket man” in Pyongyang.

Strange, then, that a politically diverse set of pundits in the United States has been worried only about how North Korea could use these talks to drive a wedge between South Korea and the United States…. Read the rest of this entry »

Dealing With North Korea – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 1, 2018

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/01/walter-e-block/dealing-with-north-korea/

 If I were President of the United States, or, more realistically, if Ron or Rand Paul were, and they appointed me Secretary of Defense, or Secretary of State, this is how I would deal with Kim Jong-un and the North Korean situation.

First, realize that Un’s theatrics are, from his own point of view, perfectly rational. He is not stupid. He looks at what happened to Muammar Gaddafi of Libya; murdered by mobs after kow-towing to the Great Satan. He notes the demise of Saddam Hussain of Iraq, another country that got on the wrong side of our imperialist nation; a similar dismal end befell him, too. It does not take much brain power to realize that Un’s only hope of escaping a similar fate would be, roughly, the one he has adopted: belligerence, nuclear armament, bellicosity, etc.

Here is what to do about the situation….

America, Mind Your Own Business – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 12, 2017

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/12/patrick-j-buchanan/what-should-we-fight-for/

 How did Israel gain title to East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Golan Heights? Invasion, occupation, colonization, annexation.

Those lands are the spoils of victory from Israel’s 1967 Six-Day War.

Is Israel being severely sanctioned like Russia? Not quite.

Her yearly U.S. stipend is almost $4 billion, as she builds settlement after settlement on occupied land despite America’s feeble protests.

 If so, we are committed to a goal we almost surely are not going to achieve. For, short of a war that could go nuclear, Kim Jong Un is not going to yield to our demands.

For Kim, nuclear weapons are not an option.

He knows that Saddam Hussein, who had given up his WMD, was hanged after the Americans attacked. He knows the grisly fate of Moammar Gadhafi, after he invited the West into Libya to dismantle his nuclear program and disarm him of any WMD.

Kim knows that if he surrenders his nuclear weapons, he has nothing to deter the Americans should they choose to use their arsenal on his armed forces, his regime, and him.

North Korea may enter talks, but Kim will never surrender the missiles and nukes that guarantee his survival. Look for the Americans to find a way to accommodate him.

Heaven Forbid Peace Should Break Out Between the US and North Korea!

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 5, 2017

https://antoniusaquinas.com/

As long as the US Empire can be funded and maintained on the backs of its taxpaying public, the chance of de-escalation of tensions not only on the Korean peninsula, but throughout the world are practically nil.  And, as long as the nation’s current interventionist ideology holds sway, it will only be through a financial meltdown that the US’s role as global policeman will come to a much-needed end.
