North Korea, Iran, Cuba-Why are They Still A Problem After More Than 50 Years Of US ‘Diplomacy’?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 1, 2017

Sixty some years of chances to make peace with North Korea. Fifty some years to make peace with Cuba. Iran? Even before the CIA overthrew their government in ’53 the US had been messing with them.
Why do they still pose a threat after all this time? Perhaps these quotes from General Smedley Butler’s ‘War Is A Racket‘ can help explain.
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

Ron Paul Fears False Flag Looms, Urges Americans To Resist Deep State Push For War On North Korea | Zero Hedge

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 28, 2017

We are goading NK into war with words and constant military exercises on it’s border.  Watch for something that won’t be easy to disprove, like an SK or Japanese (never a US) ship that suddenly sinks.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-27/ron-paul-fears-false-flag-looms-urges-americans-resist-deep-state-push-war-north-kor

We are seeing now in regard to North Korea a replay of the type of campaign the deep state and the media used in 2001 through 2003 to stir up the American people to support the invasion of Iraq. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump at the UN: The Politics of Rodomontade – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 21, 2017

http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2017/09/20/trump-un-politics-rodomontade/

What will go down in history as the “Rocket man” speech underscores the confusion, the contradictions, the dangers, and even some of the virtues – however attenuated – of the Trump presidency.

Despite the flamboyant rhetoric – or, perhaps, because of it – it’s hard to take Trump’s threat to “destroy” North Korea seriously. Trump knows, as his generals surely do, that the destruction of Pyongyang would be accompanied by the annihilation of Seoul – a city of over ten million people. Read the rest of this entry »

North Korea Says It Might Negotiate on Nuclear Weapons. But the Washington Post Isn’t Reporting That.

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 7, 2017

https://theintercept.com/2017/09/05/north-korea-says-it-might-negotiate-on-nuclear-weapons-but-the-washington-post-isnt-reporting-that/

NO NORMAL HUMAN being should ever have to read the Washington Post’s op-eds and unsigned editorials. But the Post’s words have a huge impact on the hive-mind of America’s foreign policy apparatus — and hence where we’re going to war next — so it’s important that someone normal pay attention and report back.

So as a quasi-normal person, I recommend you pay close attention to this, from a recent column by the Post’s deputy editorial page editor, Jackson Diehl, about North Korea: Read the rest of this entry »

Libertarian response to latest North Korean missile launch | Libertarian Party

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 31, 2017

https://www.lp.org/libertarian-response-latest-north-korean-missile-launch/

Libertarian foreign and defense policy derives from the common-sense ideas of a vigorous defense of our own country against foreign aggression, coupled with refraining from interference in the affairs of other countries, and free trade with all.

Most Democratic and Republican politicians are at the beck and call of the military/industrial/security/intelligence complex and their K Street lobbyists.  Read the rest of this entry »

Why Didn’t the US Shoot Down That North Korean Missile?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 30, 2017

My guess is fear of failure.

So much for defending Japan. One of the many excuses for having military spread all over the planet.

http://www.defenseone.com/technology/2017/08/why-didnt-us-shoot-down-north-korean-missile/140620/?oref=d-river

North Korea launched another medium-range missile on Monday, this one right over Japan. Despite Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ threats to shoot down missiles aimed at Guam and President Donald Trump’s Pyongyang-aimed bluster, the United States and Japan let it fly. Why?   Read the rest of this entry »

Everyone Is Wrong About North Korea — Here’s Why

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 22, 2017

http://theantimedia.org/everyone-wrong-north-korea-why/

Written by 

(ANTIMEDIA Op-ed)  Imagine a world where one country – country X – is bombing at least seven countries at any one time and is seeking to bomb an eighth, all the while threatening an adversarial ninth state – country Y – that they will bomb that country into oblivion, as well. Imagine that in this world, country X already bombed country Y back into the Stone Age several decades ago, which directly led to the current adversarial nature of the relationship between the two countries.

Americans once carpet-bombed North Korea. It’s time to remember that past.

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 15, 2017

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/aug/13/america-carpet-bombed-north-korea-remember-that-past

It was 64 years ago that North Koreans emerged from this war into a living nightmare, after three years of “rain and ruin” by the US air force. Pyongyang had been razed to the ground, with the Air Force stating in official documents that the North’s cities suffered greater damage than German and Japanese cities firebombed during World War II.

We decimated the population. They didn’t surrender, we didn’t win. Sound familiar?

Guam Fliers Aim to Prepare Islanders for Nuclear War – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 13, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/08/11/guam-fliers-aim-to-prepare-islanders-for-nuclear-war/

The sad fact is an empire building attack is what NK, Russia and any enemy du jour, on the other side of the planet, surrounded by US military bases has to live with. Now we are getting a taste. 

Most victims, Russia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, never attacked US. Saudi Arabia did attack us and we shower them with arms and support. 

Follow the oil sales money.
