The chief responsibility for creating this explosive tinderbox in North East Asia is the Trump administration. Far from North Korea “begging for war,” the US is systematically goading Pyongyang into making a move that would create the pretext for, in the words of US Defence Secretary Mattis, a “massive military response” that would result in the country’s “total annihilation.”

Think!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

One thought on “The US faces off against China and Russia over North Korea

    Trump and his Cabal may not frighten Kim Jong Il but in the name of Humanity he certainly frightens the Planets 7B People faced like August 1914. Costing the lives of 20M people. Nuclear War would evicerate half of mankind taking decades to recover. The DPRK borders not only China but Russia too. These decaying parasites in the White House must be stopped!

    Nikki Haley is just another yapping wind up phonograph which when turned on repeats how the USA will eviscerate any one, or any sovereign country which refuses to give up their land, wealth, minerals to the USA. These things are called ‘USA’s Interests! NIKKI Haley is the ‘FACE’ of Deep State.

    Despite the clearly belligerent rhetoric coming from Trump, at the UN, Haley seems to work not only at a different speed than the White House, but also apparently prodded by the Deep State to generate, instead of implementing foreign policy. On several occasions, she has taken positions opposed and in contradiction to the actions of her boss Tillerson, begging the question, who runs the State Department? No wonder rumors indicate the discomfort, disappointment and possible resignation of Tillerson.
    That seems to indicate that the same forces backing Clinton, also have a hold on the Trump administration, in sum, not only evil intent but chaos and confusion at an unprecedented level in the US government.
    Obviously Russia and China have to up the ante, and stop these actions in a more energetic manner, these people only understand brute force, nothing else. At the end of the day, calm voices within the Pentagon might save the day, opposing the suicidal tendencies of these Looney Tunes characters.

    The Ambassador to the UN is not an agent of the Secretary of State, but the President. US foreign policy is run by the President, with the Secretary of State, the UN Ambassador, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs, the theater commanders, the director of the CIA, the national security advisor, the national security director, the Secretary of Homeland Security and sometimes the staffs of designated bureaucratic entities such as the National Security Council acting to provide advice…but they all ultimately act as agents of the President, or they lose access, and influence.

    This is by the way why the decision to declare Hilary Clinton the author of the Libyan war is just a way to let Obama off the hook, blaming a courtier instead of the king.

    Russia and China need to veto any attempt by the US to have the UN sanction or attack North Korea, Venezuela, Iran, themselves, or any other country for that matter. The sole purpose of any US activity in the UN is to provide diplomatic cover for crimes against humanity. It’s been that way since the day the UN was created in San Francisco, and the fact it is housed in New York tells you it is a wholly owned subsidiary of USA Inc.

    It was the failure of the USSR to veto the US resolution to attack North Korea that provided the diplomatic cover for the last Korean war.

    Russia and China, themselves victims of US sanctions and other aggression, should instead bring a resolution to sanction, fine, and blockade the US for it’s invasion and continuing occupation of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yugoslavia, Panama, Diego Garcia, Grenada, and South Korea, to name a few recent examples. While the US and its criminal crony NATO puppet states would veto such a resolution, the debate would expose the sanctimonious hypocrisy that is the hallmark of US Imperialism.
