He’s already reckless - terror-bombing Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, risking nuclear war on the Korean peninsula, threatening Iran, saber-rattling in the South China Sea, and antagonizing Russia.
Neocon/CIA-connected WaPo editors want him to push China harder on Pyongyang, asking is he “driving toward a new outcome with China or the same old dead end?”
His “strategy is to crank up pressure,” negotiate through China for “denuclearization…look(ing) for a non-military solution.”
Demonizing Pyongyang’s government is a virtual cottage industry - even though it never attacked another country in its entire history, threatens none except in self-defense, and eagerly wants rapprochement with the West.
Apparently, New York ‘Progressive’ and Jewish activist, Bill Weinberg, thinks that I am “not welcome in NYC”. Over the last ten days, Weinberg has worked tirelessly, trying to cancel a panel discussion on 30th of April at Theatre 80 NYC, related to my forthcoming book ‘Being in Time’. Theatre 80’s owner, Lorcan Otway, has made it very clear that he won’t surrender to any calls for censorship, but still, Weinberg doesn’t seem to give up. He believes that it is he who will decide who is, and who is not, “welcome in NYC.”
Who trusts the U.S. government and American news media nowadays? Only dupes possibly can. Just look at the recent history, for the evidence on that:
The U.S. Government and ‘news ’media lied us into invading Iraq in 2003, and hid their coup that overthrew the democratically elected progressive government in Iran in 1953, and lied to say that the CIA wasn’t behind the overthrow and ’suicide' of Salvador Allende in Chile in 1973 — and now they’re lying us into war yet again, this war against Syria (where we, and our allied jihadists who are fighting to overthrow Assad, have already destroyed the lives of the people). (We’re doing this, mind you, on ‘humanitarian’ grounds.) It’s also a war against Syria’s defenders Iran and Russia, which war against Russia would be World War III — goodbye to all our dreams. And for what? All this destruction, for what? Will Trump actually take us that final mile, to Armageddon? He’s got a Congress and ‘news’media that are almost 100% supporting his reversal of his previous foreign policy by his outright bombing of Syria — bombing the government that’s fighting against the jihadists — exactly the opposite of what he had been promising to do when he was a candidate for the Presidency.
Endless US-instigated conflict in Syria rages in its seventh year - near-term peace prospects virtually nil.
Trump made a bad situation worse, deploying hundreds more US combat troops illegally to northern Syria - on the phony pretext of combating ISIS America created and supports.
Attacking Syria’s Shayrat airbase in response to a likely CIA-orchestrated Khan Sheikhoun CW attack shows the lengths Washington will go to wage endless aggression - wanting Syrian sovereignty destroyed, its leadership ousted, pro-Western puppet rule replacing it.Since 2012, Washington undermined Russia’s consistent good faith efforts for conflict resolution. Sergey Lavrov blasted the Trump administration for sabotaging peaceful solutions, saying:
“(I)llegal and aggressive (US) strikes on an airbase in Syria…exacerbated the situation and hindered, maybe on purpose, the search for a political settlement.”
In Tokyo during his East Asia tour, Pence told Prime Minister Shinzo Abe America is with Japan “100 per cent” in challenging Pyongyang.
Saying “all options are on the table,” he demanded denuclearization of the Korean peninsula - what Kim Jong-un and other government officials won’t ever accept as long as America remains an existential threat.
Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol said his government will “be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis” - threatening “all-out war” if Washington launches aggression.
On Wednesday aboard the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier in Yokosuka, Japan, home of the Pentagon’s 7th Fleet, Pence called its “steel deck” symbolic of America’s “ironclad alliance…with Japan, and…enduring commitment to the Asia-Pacific.”
Daniel Goldhagen blamed the Holocaust on “the Germans” (by which he meant the German people), and said that they perpetrated the Holocaust because they positively enjoyed murdering “the Jews.” But, as has long been well understood by historians (except when they fail to point to it as being a disproof of Goldhagen’s bigoted and indefensible anti-German thesis), Hitler had to work long and hard in order to bring about a consensus, first amongst his own leadership group, and then in the population as a whole, favoring the extermination-option. Hitler, Der Fuehrer, “The Leader,” clearly was the catalyst turning the chemical mixture into the chemical reaction known as the Holocaust. Without Hitler, it would not have taken place. Thus, the issue that has always been failed by ‘historians’ is not why “the Germans” did it (which Goldhagen botched), but why the Nazi leadership did it, and ultimately why Der Fuehrer did it.
Allied with Venezuelan anti-government fascists, Washington long sought regime change. So far, coup attempts and other destabilization efforts failed.
Perhaps Trump plans toppling its government, supporting tyranny over Bolivarian democracy, wanting another sovereign independent government eliminated, along with gaining control over Venezuela’s huge oil reserves, the world’s largest, including its heavy oil. In early April, violent anti-government protests erupted, similar to earlier ones, an orchestrated imperial plot, wanting Venezuela’s sovereignty undermined, Bolivarian fairness eliminated.
Before Sunday’s constitutional referendum, Erdogan repudiated democracy, freedom and rule of law principles, governing as a tinpot despot.
Manipulated results officially empowered his iron-fisted rule. Criticism of his rogue regime is considered treason.
Opponents are targeted for elimination. He’s at war with Kurds domestically, in Iraq and Syria. Press and academic freedom are considered heresy. He’s ruthless and unforgiving, a regional menace, Turkey a launching pad and safe haven for ISIS and other terrorist groups, providing them weapons and other material support, treating their wounded, pretending to oppose the scourge he backs, wanting northern Syria annexed, Assad ousted.
On April 18th, Washingtonsblog received from MIT’s Dr. Theodore Postol a detailed scientific analysis of the source-material for the White House Report on the gas-attack that occurred in Syria on April 4th. In it, he essentially accuses the Trump White House of having perpetrated a fraud so as to ‘justify’ its bombing of the Syrian Army’s air base. His article (along with a brief introduction about Dr. Postol’s background in the subject) can be found here: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2017/04/67102.html
My summary of it by excerpts from it, highlights certain passages with boldface type, in order to expedite a reader’s understanding Dr. Postol’s analysis.
The cover-letter of his full analysis states:
This analysis contains a detailed description of the times and locations of critical events in the alleged nerve agent attack of April 4, 2017 in Khan Shaykhun, Syria – assuming that the White House Intelligence Report (WHR) issued on April 11, 2017 correctly identified the alleged sarin release site.
On Sunday, Turkey’s deplorably weak democracy died. Erdogan’s power-grab succeeded, ending it.
The constitutional referendum lets him declare emergency rule and govern by decree, including dissolving parliament and calling new elections if he wishes.
An OSCE observer mission monitoring the referendum campaign and Sunday’s vote raised serious questions about its legitimacy.
Procedures “fell short” of international standards, it said. Numerous irregularities occurred. On April 17, an OSCE press release said in part “The 16 April constitutional referendum in Turkey was contested on an unlevel playing field, and the two sides in the campaign did not have equal opportunities.”
