It’s easy to dismiss Kim Jong-un as a madman. But there’s a long history of US aggression against the North, which we forget at our peril. Donald Trump was having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on February 11 when a message arrived mid-meal, courtesy of Pyongyang: North Korea had just tested […]

However slim the chance may be for a political deal to materialize, new breakthroughs in the Middle East and Korea have been emerging one after one since early May. The first breakthrough was President Donald Trump’s indication on May 1 that he is willing to have a direct talk with Kim Jong Un, the supreme […]

Amid the North Korea crisis and stepped-up tensions with China, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced on May 3 plans for revision of Japan’s postwar Constitution for the first time since its inception 70 years ago. A revision of the Constitution with a rephrasing of the Article 9 (憲法第9条) peace clause is to come into effect by 2020, the same year as the Tokyo Olympics. Reflecting the 1964 Games when Japan re-emerged as Asia’s leading industrial power, the country will present itself just three years from now in a new light as a “normal” nation entrusted by the international community with a global security role, or in the Japanese mind as an Empire reborn. The sanitized public-relations exercise, however, ignores the looming potential for Japan to engage more forcefully in resource-driven military actions as its “peacekeeping” missions have done in oil-rich Iraq and South Sudan. More ominously, Japan’s offensive posture in the ongoing Korean crisis, along with preemptive statements about hosting refugees from the North, is indicative of the ambition for yet another intervention in the Korean Peninsula, perhaps similar to how the NATO powers dismembered the Republic of Yugoslavia.

Loosely based on an interview with Press TV Background: BERLIN, May 6 (Reuters) – German government officials have proposed giving Britain access to the European Union’s single market in return for a fee, Focus magazine said on Saturday citing a Finance Ministry report. The 35-page report on the potential costs of Brexit to Germany said […]

Photo: Strategic Culture Foundation North Korea was not the first power on the Korean peninsula to pursue the acquisition of nuclear weapons. That distinction goes to U.S. ally South Korea under the dictatorship of Park Chung Hee. Ironically, as the U.S. corporate media joins the Pentagon in ratting war sabers against North Korea, the daughter […]

Donald Trump has said that under the «right circumstances» he would be «honored» to meet with Kim Jong Un – a «pretty smart cookie» as the President called the North Korea’s leader. «If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it», he told […]

The North Korean “crisis” is a Washington orchestration. North Korea was last at war 1950-53. N. Korea has not attacked or invaded anyone in 64 years. …. …. So what is the demonization of N. Korea by the presstitutes and Trump administration about? It is about the same thing that the demonization of Iran was about. […]

“The problem is that the world has listened to Americans for far too bloody long.” — Dr. Julian Osborne, from the 2000 film version of Nevil Shute’s 1957 book, On the Beach A reader asked why neoconservatives push toward nuclear war when there can be no winners. If all die, what is the point? The answer is that the neoconservatives believe that the US can win at minimum and perhaps zero damage. Their insane plan is as follows: Washington will ring Russia and China with anti-ballistic missile bases in order to provide a shield against a retaliatory strike from Russia and China. Moreover, these US anti-ABM bases also can deploy nuclear attack missiles unknown to Russia and China, thus reducing the warning time to five minutes, leaving Washington’s victims little or no time in which to make a decision.

Even as President Donald Trump sends an overture for peace talks with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, the Pentagon and Japan’s intelligence agency are running black operations to launch false-flag operations against Asian capitals as a pretext for war on the Korean Peninsula. Already, covert teams are pinning targets for black ops planners at the Pentagon. Meanwhile, Japan’s carrier-borne helicopters are getting ready to transfer nuclear bombs onto US Marine Corps F-35B Lighting attack jets off Shikoku, the small Japanese island that fronts the Inland (Seto) Sea. In mid-January, the defect-plagued F-35s were forward-deployed to the Marine Corps Air Station at Iwakuni in Yamaguchi, the home prefecture of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Soon, these troubled aircraft will be launching World War III.

This is the transcript of a recent email interview I did with Dr. Bruce M. Z.

When in the 18th and 19th Century African slaves did not ’behave’, they were cruelly beaten sometimes to death as a deterrent for others. They were deprived of food for their families. Their women were raped. They were traded to even harsher white masters. Their lives were worth only what their labor could produce. They […]

This week the Kiev regime went into rogue overdrive when it cut off electricity supplies to some three million people in the self-declared Lugansk republic of eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian energy ministry under the control of the Kiev regime said it was because the breakaway province was in arrears over bill payments. That’s rich coming […]

America’s renewed desire to escalate military tensions is a front for America’s continual financial war, this time directed at North Korea, Syria and possibly Iran. This is likely to be the opinion of China’s strategic advisors. We analyse the geopolitics and economics behind America’s war strategy from China’s perspective, concluding that it is entering its […]

In case of war with North Korea, the US would face a military challenge as perhaps never before in the last seventy years. This is why a conventional deterrence is actually more important than the nuclear one if we break down a realistic war scenario. The downside is that the DPRK is fully aware that […]

There is a great deal of propaganda and deliberate misinformation about North Korea, which the public should know. While neocons, a cheering corporate media, and Deep State, rush to war with North Korea, information is the ultimate weapon. For example, did you know that North Korea, China, and India, are the only three nations who […]

French and British military forces aboard the helicopter-carrier Mistral arrived to the Sasebo naval port in Nagasaki, near the Tsushma Strait entrance to the Sea of Japan/East Sea, in exactly the same time-frame as the USS Carl Vinson’s entry into those waters along the east coast of the Korean Peninsula for naval exercises aimed at intimidating the DPRK leadership. The simultaneity of arrival and entry was no coincidence, since this convergence of western naval power was planned as early as six months ago when Hillary Clinton was expected to win the U.S. presidency. This well-coordinated show of force against Pyongyang, and its allies Russia and China, discloses how Shinzo Abe (安倍 晋三) was the shrewd mastermind behind President Donald Trump’s abrupt decision to dispatch an “Armada” against the DPRK. Different presidents, same White House ploy.

In the end, there was hardly a reset; rather a sort of tentative pause on Cold War 2.0. Interminable days of sound and fury were trudging along when President Trump finally decided NATO is “no longer obsolete”; still, he wants to “get along” with Russia. Just ahead of meeting US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson […]
