Get On the Trump Peace Train! – Antiwar.com Original

There’s never a dull moment with the Trump administration, which means: never a moment of rest for the War Party. Trump keeps throwing fast balls at the pundits and assembled “experts,” and they keep striking out, bigtime, as the ball whizzes past their heads and lands, with a thwack!, in the catcher’s mitt.

“Steee-rike one!”

First it was the meet up with Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The media and their attendant policy wonks weren’t ready for Singapore, where the President gave Kim a glimpse of what his country could achieve if it would only come in from the cold and allow the warm embrace of the international community.

An Elite Coalition Emerges Against a Trump-Kim Agreement – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on June 22, 2018

How do these countries expect an empire to survive by asking to be left alone and live their own lives?

They just want to be free to live life as they please like any US citizen…err…ahh…I would like to retract that comment but it is already in NSA’s giant Utah data center.

…But media coverage of the Singapore summit shows that something much bigger and more sinister is now in play: a consensus among foreign policy and national security elites and their media allies that Trump’s pursuit of an agreement with Kim on denuclearization threatens to undo seventy years of U.S. military dominance in Northeast Asia…

The real concern of the opposition to Trump’s diplomacy, therefore, is no longer that he cannot succeed in getting an agreement with Kim on denuclearization but that he will succeed… Read the rest of this entry »

Trump Confounds the Pundits

Posted by M. C. Fox on June 17, 2018

I wish someone would just get the oil and gas pipelines built from Qatar through Iraq, Syria and Turkey. That is what this perpetual warmongering is about.

But then someone always finds a reason for war, like money, power and doing other county’s (the ones neocons bow down to) dirty work.

Did I mention money and power?

What will come out of this week’s summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un of North Korea remains to be seen, and one must hope for the best, but the bullets are already beginning to fly in the US media with The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof declaring impulsively somewhat implausibly that Trump gave away the store by canceling military training exercises with South Korea and in legitimizing Jong-un’s rule by meeting with him without getting anything substantive in return.

Lost in the flood of news coming out of Singapore are Trump’s positive comments delivered at the earlier G-7 meeting in Canada, which may have opened the door to a possible meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and a return of Moscow to a reconfigured G-8. One hopes that China will soon also make it into the ultimate insiders’ club, which will have to be renamed G-9.

Washington’s most important relationship is with Moscow Read the rest of this entry »

Trump’s Historic Gamble – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on June 15, 2018

Do you think we would be even close to this point with “We came, we saw, he died” Hillary?

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/06/patrick-j-buchanan/trumps-historic-gamble/

President Donald Trump appears to belong to what might be called the Benjamin Disraeli school of diplomacy.

The British prime minister once counseled, “Everyone likes flattery; and when you come to Royalty you should lay it on with a trowel.”

At his Singapore summit, Trump smartly saluted a North Korean general and then lavished praise on Kim Jong Un as a “strong guy” with a “good personality” and a “great negotiator.” “He’s funny, and … very, very smart … and a very strategic kind of a guy. … His country does love him.”

Predictably, Trump is being scourged for this… Read the rest of this entry »

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Trump/Kim Meeting Shows Value of Policy Over Politics

Posted by M. C. Fox on June 14, 2018

Their biggest fear is that peace may break out and they are doing everything to prevent that from happening. Conflict is their livelihood

When President Reagan met with Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland, on October 11, 1987, it helped put into motion events that would dramatically change the global system. A line of communication was fully opened with an enemy of decades and substantive issues were on the table. Though the summit was initially reported as a failure, with the two sides unable to sign a final agreement, history now shows us that it was actually a great success that paved the way to the eventual end of the Cold War and a reduction in the threat of a nuclear war.

A year later Gorbachev and Reagan met in Washington to continue the dialogue that had been started and the rest is history. Success began as a “failure.” Read the rest of this entry »

US Bellicosity – LewRockwell

U.S. threats to crush Iran and North Korea may yet work, but as of now neither Tehran nor Pyongyang appears to be intimidated.

Repeated references by NSC adviser John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence to the “Libya model” for denuclearization of North Korea just helped sink the Singapore summit of President Trump and Kim Jong Un. To North Korea, the Libya model means the overthrow and murder of Libya strongman Col. Gadhafi, after he surrendered his WMD. Read the rest of this entry »

The Korea Story: Why Is the Media Getting It So Wrong? – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. 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 M. 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.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5732893/North-Korea-threatens-CANCEL-Trumps-nuclear-summit.html

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 M. 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.”
