The United States government and its complicit media always chalk N. Korean threats up to saber rattling or “bellicose rhetoric“. Yet, the United States themselves is involved in nearly the same exact behavior, on N. Korea’s front door.
One the one side of their mouth, the U.S. government says that all North Korea’s talk is all bluster, and there isn’t much to be worried about. Out of the other side of their mouth, they say they are taking the threat very seriously.
It looks like we are all being spun in circles to keep us occupied, while World War 3 gets closer and closer.
I’m not really sure which way this N. Korea nuclear situation is going to go, but it isn’t looking good so far. Kim Jong Un recently rescinded the 1953 armistice between the two Koreas, readied his troops, and declared the war back on. The south of course, responded in kind; not a sign of peace or progress.
The U.S. and South Korea have been holding joint military drills, with nuclear armed bombers along N. Korea’s border. If that isn’t saber rattling, it’s at the very least provoking the N. Korean government.
The United States Navy is now in the process of moving a radar platform closer to N. Korea. This will only provoke the DPRK even further, and could possibly escalate this entire, stupid mess into a shooting war, again.
We shouldn’t be too eager to see this escalate, North Korea is a nuclear armed nation, after all. No matter who “wins” a nuclear war, the results are devastating to the civilian population. Just ask the Japanese.
It is beginning to look like there are going to be multiple fronts on the war path the US seems to be on. Israel is reportedly preparing for a war on multiple fronts, and it seems the US is preparing in the same manner by sending warships to the Asia-Pacific.
There has been an ongoing dispute with China (and other Asian countries) regarding the ownership of the South China Sea, and the tensions keep growing while the US seems to add more fuel to the fire, even going so far as to send decommissioned warships that direction.
What would cause the US government to act this way? Wouldn’t we want good relationships with China considering the potential economic ramifications alone of a major dispute? The answer, in my opinion is here:
That’s because the area may hold oil riches that rival Saudi Arabia’s, a prospect that is stoking tensions in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes
I still think there is more behind the issue than oil or staggering profits from shipping lane control. China and Russia have been the most vocal opponents of sanctions on Iran. Both Russia and China also have strategic interests in the stability of the Iranian leadership and don’t want to have their national or economic interests upset. I think the US is stoking the flames in preparation for what is coming (war with Iran); although for the life of me I can’t figure out why!
I do know that the Chinese leadership is seeing what is coming and it looks like they are enabling North Korea more than in the past. Could this be any part of the situation? I hope not. I do know that when the conflicts begin, watch the South Pacific again as there will be action on that end also. So far, much of this has stayed under the radar, but keep an eye on the news coming out of this part of the world; I really think we’ll see another combat theater over there.
I really think the US needs to tread very carefully here…can we really afford all of the costs of a conflict (of any size) with China?
When we watch documentaries of historical events it is important to keep in mind that the video has to squeeze years and years worth of notable information in a very small window of time (around 2 hours). Therefore we must also realize that the events which led up to war took many years to put in place.
We need to realize that all of the seemingly isolated incidents may not be as isolated as we’d like. To me, all of the pieces are starting to fit together for a global confrontation of some sort; LaRouche claims it will be a thermonuclear confrontation.
Pieces being put into place
There were reports in the last few weeks that the U.S. Navy would be sending more ships
to the Persian Gulf. After that there were reports that Russia too would be increasing their military presence
in the area by sending warships. Turkey also seems to be joining in on the fun
The road to war in Iran runs through Syria. The U.S. and Israel (along with a few U.N. buddies) have been barking for war with Iran for quite a while now. So far they have been unsuccessful in their provocation and have turned their eyes to Syria because they have a mutual defense pact
with Iran. So, if Syria gets pulled into an armed conflict, Iran is obligated to join in to help their ally.
Today, I read that China is now moving warships
through the Suez Canal and possibly on their way to the Syrian coast.
When the time is right
I don’t know what will kick it off, but right now is a very precarious time on a global level. At the time of writing this, there are many, many, conspiracy theorists who claim something will go down at the London 2012 Olympics
. If anything were to happen the powder keg may just go off!
Resist an attack made on (someone or something);
Regardless of splitting hairs on the issue, Israel hasn’t taken military action off of the table; for that matter the U.S. itself still has all the options on the table too (whatever that means)…there is something terrible in the air and it may get ugly very fast.
