Inner-Korean talks resumed in Panmunjom on Saturday amidst a brawl over recent North Korean missile tests, artillery duels and a joint US-South Korean air-force attempt to brandish military might as motivator for the talks. Kim Kwan-jin, the national security adviser to President Park Geun-hye and Unification Minister Hong Jong-pyo are participating in the talks, representing Seoul. Participating as representatives of the Democratic […]

George Soros pretends to be a progressive, but he invests in and finances nazis. That’s not “Nazis” as in National Socialist Party of Germany, which was outlawed after WW II, and whose racist obsession was against Jews. Instead, it’s “nazis” as in any racist fascist ideology (any ideology of racist fascism, instead of a political […]

First published in July 2015. Of utmost relevance to the ongoing debate on the agreement with Iran pertaining to its nuclear program. On July 3, 2015, presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an “existential threat to Israel… I hope we are able to […]

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has hit out at American and European Ukraine policy, saying it ignores Russia’s relationship with its neighbor, and has called for cooperation between the White House and the Kremlin on the issue. “Breaking Russia has become an objective [for US officials] the long-range purpose should be to integrate it,” the 92-year-old told The National Interest in a lengthy interview for the policy magazine’s anniversary that touched on most of the world’s most pertinent international issues. “If we treat Russia seriously as a great power, we need at an early stage to determine whether their concerns can be reconciled with our necessities.”

The August 16, 2015 attack on a market in the Syrian town of Douma, just outside the capital Damascus, has caused international outrage. Condemnations of the Syrian government have poured in from seemingly all corners of the globe as President Assad and the Syrian military have been declared responsible for the attack, convicted in the […]

A best-known and globally respected conscientious intellectual on the absurdity of American opposition to the Iran deal. This post first appeared at TomDispatch. Throughout the world there is great relief and optimism about the nuclear deal reached in Vienna between Iran and the P5+1 nations, the five veto-holding members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany. Most […]

Truce on the First Anniversary of the US-Led Coup (First published in February 2015) Seeing through the Official Lies on Ukraine  “We can no longer find any willingness on the part of Poland to conduct serious negotiations with us. These proposals for mediation have failed because [of ] – – Polish mobilization.” (Adolph Hitler, 1939)  […]

Dear President Obama: We at the Korea Policy Institute urge you to act swiftly to seek a peaceful resolution to current hostilities on the Korean peninsula. Avenues exist to replace saber-rattling with diplomacy. The United States-led United Nations Command in Korea and the South Korean military have concluded that injuries suffered by two South Korean […]

The full war USGov aggression against Korea from 1950 to ’53, waged under the false colors of the United Nations, was an entirely criminal exercise in mass murder, successfully undertaken via the misguidance of all-time boss war monger Bernard Baruch, the Second King of the Jews, with the purpose of jump-starting the permanent war economy […]

Yemen has been the target of a brutal U.S.-backed war led by Saudi Arabia. While ordinary civilians are suffering horrific violence and starvation, there is deafening silence from the U.S. and others who claim to be defenders of human rights. The situation is so bad now that nearly every major global human rights organization has […]

See: Third-Reich-sur-Seine: the French collaborationist tradition “You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour, and you will have war.” (Statement of Winston Churchill, after the Munich Agreement, denouncing the abandonment of Czechoslovakia by France and UK.) The obscene project of the celebration of the terrorist state of Israel on the banks […]

From Regional War, “Regime Change” to Global Warfare 2015 has become a year of living dangerously. Wars are spreading across the globe. Wars are escalating as new countries are bombed and the old are ravaged with ever greater intensity. Countries, where relatively peaceful changes had taken place through recent elections, are now on the verge of civil wars. These are wars without victors, but plenty of losers; wars that don’t end; wars where imperial occupations are faced with prolonged resistance. There are never-ending torrents of war refugees flooding across borders. Desperate people are detained, degraded and criminalized for being the survivors and victims of imperial invasions.

Now major nuclear powers face off in Europe and Asia: NATO versus Russia, US-Japan versus China. Will these streams of blood and wars converge into one radiated wilderness drained of its precious life blood?

Russia’s new Richag-AV radar and sonar jamming system can be mounted on helicopters, ships and other military equipment to jam potential adversaries’ weapons systems from distances of several hundred kilometers away; it has been hailed by developers as having no analogue anywhere in the world. At a presentation for journalists in Kazan on Wednesday, Russian radio-electronics firm Radio-Electronic […]

For those interested in that sort of thing, 20th August 2015 has been a fascinating day in the markets. Oil has plunged, Kazakhstan and Vietnam have both floated their currencies, the Kazakh currency has fallen by 20% in a single day, and what are politely referred to as the currencies of the “emerging market economies” – which include the rouble – have all fallen in unison. In Russia the rouble has tracked the fall in the price of oil, with Economics Minister Ulyukaev saying that because oil is likely to continue its fall, the rouble is likely to fall further.

The paradox in the question of who wins in a currency war presupposes that any participating combatant can actually claim victory. If winning means ending up with the most cash, when the value of the money as a store of tangible wealth is debased, it is doubtful anyone can be declared the victor. The absurdity […]

Japan’s embrace of American militarism in Asia-Pacific directed at China is perhaps the ultimate litmus test of Japanese sincerity about its past violations. The differing response from the United States and China to Japanese premier Shinzo Abe’s wartime “apology” speech is revealing. The American White House “welcomed” Abe’s statement of remorse for Japan’s war record, while China was far from placated. Chinese media rebuffed Abe’s “smart words” and “linguistic trickery” as not going far enough to make amends for Japanese crimes committed during the Sino-Japanese War and its overlapping Pacific War.

Stories about cyberespionage–like the data theft at the US Office of Personal Management believed but not officially stated to have been carried out by China–are weird. For one thing, they include quotes about how “we need to be a bit more public” about our responses to cyberattacks–delivered from White House officials who speak only on condition […]

It is late July 2015, and the media is abuzz with the news that Turkey will allow US jets to use its bases to bomb Islamic State (ISIS) targets in Syria. There is much talk about how this development is a “game-changer,” and how this is a clear escalation of the much ballyhooed, but more […]

Here’s your US foreign policy puzzler for the day: When is regime change not regime change? When the regime stays in power but loses its ability to rule. This is the current objective of US policy in Syria, to undermine Syrian President Bashar al Assad’s ability to govern the country without physically removing him from office. The idea is simple: Deploy US-backed “jihadi” proxies to capture-and-hold vast sections of the country thereby making it impossible for the central government to control the state. This is how the Obama administration plans to deal with Assad, by making him irrelevant. The strategy is explained in great detail in a piece by Michael E. O’Hanlon at the Brookings Institute titled “Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war”. Here’s an excerpt:
