Pyongyang, June 23 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Friday released the following statement over the fact the U.S. administration authorities are heating up the anti-DPRK smear campaign by abusing the humanitarian measure taken by the DPRK as an inhuman act, concerning the death of Warmbier, an American citizen: Warmbier is clearly […]

Bull’s eye! “They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice … You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!” The Donald has never spoken truer words but also has never sunken lower into abject victimhood. Indeed, what is he waiting for­– handcuffs and a perp walk? Just to be clear, “he” doesn’t need to be the passive object of a “WITCH HUNT” by “they”. If Donald Trump had any kind of presidential strategy and propensity to take command, he would have had all the intercepts of Russian chatter gathered up weeks ago. He would then have had them declassified and made public, even as he launched a criminal prosecution against Obama’s hit squad­-John Brennan, Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett for illegally unmasking and leaking classified information.

GR Editor’s Note This incisive list of countries by William Blum was first published in 2013, posted on Global Research in 2014. In relation to recent developments in Latin America and the Middle East, it is worth recalling the history of US sponsored military coups and “soft coups” aka regime changes. In a bitter irony, […]

The corpses pile up like sandbags along the planet’s geopolitical borders. “Perhaps his condition deteriorated and the authorities decided it was better to release him in a coma than as a corpse.” So said an expert on North Korea recently, quoted in the New York Times following the death of 22-year-old Otto Warmbier, six days after he had been released in a comatose state from a North Korean prison. He had been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor a year and a half ago because he had taken a propaganda poster off the wall in his hotel. He had been with a tour group. Oh Lord. The shocking wrongness and horror of this young man’s death — the absurdity of his arrest, the razor slash of his tears — is all over the news.

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Terrorism supporters in Washington and Riyadh close ranks against Qatar The United States has been using lies to go to war since 1846, when Americans who believed in manifest destiny sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean at the expense of Mexico, acquiring by force of arms California and what were to become the southwestern […]

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 […]

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 […]

Is Russiagate an investigation of foreign meddling into US elections or retaliation for Washington’s stunning defeat in Syria? The opening of the Russiagate investigation closely coincides with the Battle of Aleppo, which was the turning point in the 6 year-long Syrian War. In July 2016 –the same month the FBI reportedly began its Russia hacking […]

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).

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.

On a scale not seen since the ‘great’ world depression of the 1930’s, the US political system is experiencing sharp political attacks, divisions and power grabs. Executive firings, congressional investigations, demands for impeachment, witch hunts, threats of imprisonment for ‘contempt of Congress’ and naked power struggles have shredded the façade of political unity and consensus among competing powerful US oligarchs. For the first time in US history, the incumbent elected president struggles on a daily basis to wield state power. The opposition-controlled state (National Public Radio) and corporate organs of mass propaganda are pitted against the presidential regime. Factions of the military elite and business oligarchy face off in the domestic and international arena. The oligarchs debate and insult each other. They falsify charges, plot and deceive. Their political acolytes, who witness these momentous conflicts, are mute, dumb and blind to the real interests at stake.
