https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-northkorea-missiles-engine-idUSKBN19D2RC North Korea has carried out another test of a rocket engine that the United States believes could be part of its program to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile, a U.S. official told Reuters on Thursday. The United States assessed that the test, the latest in a series of engine and missile tests this year, […]

Contrary to what the US government and corporate media have conditioned us to associate only with North Korea, a Korean in the South finds herself subject to prosecution for violating the South’s National Security Law because she seeks to move to the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea [DPRK]. Kim Ryon-hui, 48, a North Korean, kept […]

There is a small courthouse from the ‘British era’, standing right in the center of Hong Kong. It is neat, well-built, remarkably organized and some would even say – elegant. Earlier this year I visited there with an Afghan-British lawyer, who had been touring East Asia for several months. Hong Kong was her last destination; […]

If North Korea Didn’t Exist US Would Create It … James R. Lilley puts it succinctly when he says: “At the end of the Cold War, if North Korea didn’t exist we would have to create it as an excuse to keep the Seventh Fleet in the region.” … IN its latest move early June […]

Otto and the Warmbier family are victims not of the North Koreans but of American officialdom, which failed to intervene on his behalf and, if the unpleasant truth be told, wanted him silenced. … The gaping holes in the story of Otto Warmbier, the American university student who suffered a severe brain disordered while imprisoned in North Korea, are a source of public puzzlement since it seems utterly irrational for a tourist to be imprisoned for theft of a mere banner from a tourist hotel wall. The actual issues behind his arrest have been covered over by the Western media and a matter of silent confusion on the Korean Peninsula. The undercover role of this ambitious recent college graduate has been swept under the rug, a routine response of denial from the manifold nexus of U.S. intelligence agencies and a Zionist-influenced Treasury Department.

The last thirty days have shown another kind of world that is engaging in cooperation, dialogue and diplomatic efforts to resolve important issues. The meeting of the members of the Belt and Road Initiative laid the foundations for a physical and electronic connectivity among Eurasian countries, making it the backbone of sustainable and renewable trade development based on mutual cooperation. A few weeks later, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in Astana outlined the necessary conditions for the success of the Chinese project, such as securing large areas of the Eurasian block and improving dialogue and trust among member states. The following AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) meeting in ROK will layout the economical necessities to finance and sustain the BRI projects.

There’s little chance that you could come across a geopolitical analyst these days who would disagree that a “behind-the-scenes power” is driving the worsening geopolitical situation, with Qatar becoming a primary target for all of its former allies. We’ve also seen a new terrorist attack in London, Therese May losing popular support and then the […]

The most important change over the last days was the Syrian government forces move (red areas and arrows) in the south-east towards the Iraqi border. The original plan was to retrieve al-Tanf further south-west to secure the border crossing of the Damascus-Baghdad highway there. But al-Tanf was occupied by U.S., British and Norwegian invaders and some of their proxy forces (blue). Their airplanes attacked Syrian army convoys when they approached. The U.S. plan was to move from al-Tanf north towards the Euphrates river and to thereby capture and control the whole south-east of Syria. But Syria and its allies made an unexpected move and prevented that plan. The invaders are now cut off from the Euphrates by a Syrian west-to-east line that ends at the Iraqi border. On the Iraqi side elements of the Popular Military Unites under the command of the Iraqi government are moving to meet the Syrian forces at the border.

Qatar chaos sends ripples of economic anxiety across the region China’s cardinal foreign policy imperative is to refrain from interfering abroad while advancing the proverbial good relations with key political actors – even when they may be at each other’s throats. Still, it’s nothing but gut-wrenching for Beijing to watch the current, unpredictable, Saudi-Qatari standoff. […]

In the process of strengthening its influence, China is developing cooperation with its neighbors, seeking to bind all the small states in the surrounding region to itself economically. Chief among these smaller states are the ASEAN member countries. To achieve economic integration with these countries and ensure its continued presence in them, China is setting […]

On 2 June 2017, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2356 on the extension of sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The resolution was initiated by the United States in response to North Korea’s continued missile launches. Everyone who took part in the vote noted that adopting the resolution demonstrates the unity […]

[Reposted from the Moscow-based Strategic Culture Foundation site: https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/06/05/kim-jong-un-isnt-crazy-and-china-doesnt-have-solution.html] Admittedly no one should expect linear thinking from President Donald Trump. Still, it was a bit jarring to hear him go from calling North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un a “pretty smart cookie” and “gentleman” who the president would be “honored” to meet to a “madman with […]

Imperialism is worried that China’s huge global infrastructure projects could challenge the U.S.-led world order The People’s Republic of China hosted a summit May 14 called the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, also known as the New Silk Road project. Twenty-nine heads of state and representatives of 130 countries attended from across Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe. Seventy countries signed agreements with China to participate. The “Belt” refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt. It encompasses land route development from central China to Central Asia, Iran, Turkey and Eastern Europe. The “Road” refers to the Maritime Silk Road. This involves ports and coastal infrastructure from Southeast Asia to East Africa and the Mediterranean.

In a series of articles posted on www.paulcraigroberts.org, we have proven to our satisfaction that the prices of gold and silver are manipulated by the bullion banks acting as agents for the Federal Reserve. The bullion prices are manipulated down in order to protect the value of the US dollar from the extraordinary increase in […]

The Dangerous Tone of US Media  Often, when people are first becoming personally acquainted with me and my political views, I will be asked point-blank: “Do you support North Korea?” I always respond, “No, I don’t support North Korea. I support all of Korea.” Among average Americans and even many who consider themselves activists and […]

The abuse of power in global politics leads to problems like the situation around North Korea, adding that Pyongyang defends itself from external pressure, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — Force used by the West with regard to some countries in the Middle […]

The anti-ballistic missile interceptor system called THAAD is one of the many snake heads of the Pentagon that claims it is designed to protect us under its umbrella. Be wary because its dark shadow is not the cooling shade of the sacred 9-headed Cobra that kindly sheltered the Buddha. The snake head called THAAD has two poisonous fangs. These are First, the deceptive Pentagon claim that a “kinetic” missile tip can make a direct on hit an incoming ballistic missile. In the science of ballistics, this is like swinging a baseball bat against a bullet. It might be possible inside the strike zone at home plate, but don’t try it in the outfield. What I mean is that shooting an ICBC from Vandenberg onto Kwajalein island is pitching over home plate, with all factors under control. Try doing it, say, anywhere over French Polynesia and the batting average will drop to triple zero and it will be a strike out for Tahiti.
