Mad Dog America Determined to Start WWIII

international / peace/war / other press

There are many disturbing aspects to criminally hijacked America today, not least of which is the very clear attitude the UNREPRESENTATIVE, minority Banker and Corporate ruling elite have toward the rest of the world. Modern criminal America has proven emphatically that it does not wish to share or enter into any equitable arrangement with any other nation or people in any regard whatsoever.

Lloyd Blankfein, CEO Goldman Sachs
Lloyd Blankfein, CEO Goldman Sachs

The Balkan intervention marked the beginning of a pathologically aggressive nation hell-bent on taking everything it wanted by deceit and force of arms, as its continuous war policy proves today. In contrast China, a nation that has far more resource needs than America, has done what it's always done; 'doing peaceful business' with other nations for the commodities it requires, and yet military America views non-aggressive China as a threat and is now attempting to encircle it with bases and nuclear capable, naval and air forces! We should emphasise that China does not have ONE military base outside its own borders -- this is policy for any peaceful nation. In contrast paranoid and criminally aggressive America has a staggering nine (900) hundred military bases established in occupied nations around the globe, including occupied Australia -- does that simple fact inform readers of a particular REALITY?

Indefinite detention, legal assassinations and complete dispossession of its own population offers incontrovertible PROOF that totalitarian America not only steals anything it wishes by brute force and thuggery it has absolutely no respect for the sovereign rights of any nation, culture or person. With a civilian killing record that Hitler, Stalin and Mao would be proud of, America has become the undisputed leading terrorist nation in the world today -- FACT!

The criminal psychopaths that have hijacked American democracy live in dread of everything including their own genitally groped and dispossessed population, such is the very revealing fearful attitude the American ruling elite display to the entire WORLD!

No other nation competes with America militarily (at this stage) yet pathological America views competing PEACEFUL nations as military threats and has engaged in CONSTANT provocation around the borders of both Russia and China. It is FACT that a nuclear advantage is created by military installations/weapons that are geographically closer to targets than those of opposing nations!

With the above well known military fact in mind America has offensively positioned its naval and military forces within easy striking distance of China's and Russia's capital cities, imagine if the situation were reversed!

It is not enough that America alone is the most aggressive military nation on earth, it now provokes superpowers that are capable of reducing the entire American continent to ash! If anyone required proof that America is currently ruled by psychopaths and is determined to wreak havoc on a relatively peaceful world then simply refer them to the map below.

Report from 4th media follows:

The Jeju Naval Base Another US Base in Korea: Strategic Threat to China
by Kiyul Chung

Emergency Report: The Entry to Jeju Island by 3 American members of “Veterans for Peace” on March 15th were denied, detained & forcibly deported by S. Korean authorities.

Check the VfP’s official press release for their Public Protest against South Korea’s pro-US, authoritarian, dictatorial and facist Lee regime in Seoul; “U.S VETS REFUSED ENTRY INTO SOUTH KOREA: Protest Friday at South Korean Consulate in New York” http://www.4thmedia.org/2012/03/16/u-s-vets-refused-entry-into-south-korea-protest-friday-at-south-korean-consulate-in-new-york/

I

As well-known already in the region and some other parts of the world as well, from the very beginning of the idea to contstruct a naval base in Korea as another US naval base which is only about 200 miles away from China’s southeastern areas, the Jeju Naval Base has not been a Korea-US issue only.

Instead it’s been precisely the issue of Northeast Asian region since China is automatically drawn into this geopolitically and militarily intertwined issue in terms of further intensified militarization of both Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia region, particularly in the context of “America’s strategic naval base as a direct military threat to China.”

However, in fact, the Construction of Another US Naval Base in Jeju Island, Korea is not only regional but also global military and power struggle issues as well.

For there are four major global powers like US, China, Russia, Japan, of course, both Koreas in the region, too, whose national security and geopolitical interests are automatically intertwined each other in the issue of Jeju US military base.

By the way, many Koreans already call the Jeju Naval Base ”Another US Naval Base.” They also call it now, therefore, the “US Pirate Base” as well.

II

According to not a small number of South Korean (both some conservative and most progressive) media outlets, the “thoroughly pro-US, pro-Japan to the bone” (a direct quote from President Lee’s own older brother who’s been the most powerful political figure last 4 years in Korean politics) Lee regime seems to mark “the unprecedented, therefore, probably the worst case of extreme flunkeyism” in the entire Korean history of a half a millenium.

As a result, due to his unimaginably disastrous and ruinous 4 years of most corrupted power, not only the whole-Korean peninsula but also China and the whole Northeast Asian region have been continually and forcibly thrown into a constant state of further intensified military tensions.

It’s been no wonder why, during the most shameful and tragic presidency in modern Korean history, the entire South Korean society has been extremely torn apart into many different pieces with unbelievable degrees of social, cultural, economic, political, ideological and religious division most Koreans might have never experienced before.

Neither have the North-South relations last 4 years during his blindly antagonistic, destructive and reactionary policy toward the other half of Korean peninsula gone into the endless collisions repeatedly over and over and over again.

By the way President Lee’s not been ”flunkey” only!

But, as the absolute majority Korean population have courageously challenged, condemned and denounced his pernicious rule, he’s been also “the most horrendous antinational traitor.”

Also, even if he’s been talking about the “green movement” all the time, he’s been however destructively “anti-The Nature,” too, including the destruction of one of the most beautiful spots in Korean peninsula, the Jeju Island which “contains the natural World Heritage Site, Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes.” (Wikipedia)

However, the Jeju Island is not only a precious natural treasure in Korea but also it’s a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site as well.

The immediate area where ”Another US Military Naval Base” is going to be constructed has “three UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites and nine UNESCO Geo-Parks” also. The park is also a “UNESCO-designated Global Biosphere Reserve.”

In addition to that UNESCO background in terms of its preciousness, uniqueness, and irreplaceable worth as human natural resource, the Jeju Island has been also called as “The Island of World Peace” as well. On January 27, 2005, South Korean government under the Lee’s predecessor late President Roh Moohyun “designated Jeju Island as the Island of World Peace based on Article 12 of the Special Act for the Jeju Free International City” (http://www.peace.jeju.kr/eng/html/sub1/sub1.htm).

That island of world peace is now about to be turned completely upside down as another warmongering, aggressive and strategic US military naval base which clearly aims its already “publicly and repeatedly pronounced prime target,” China.

III

After four years in power, Lee’s political catch phrase of that so-called green movement has been turned out to be a series of flat lies.

For example, from the very inception of one of the most deceptive and destructive but extremely lucrative business idea for his corrupted cronies, the so-called ”Saving 4 Rivers Project” has been also adamantly opposed by a great majority Korean population.

One of the grandest projects of this scale which has taken already more than 12 trillion worth of national resources is well-known for the astronomically multiplying wealth, at the expense of The Mother Nature, of his own family members, his hometown (“Young-Po”) businesses, particularly his highschool, called “Dongji Sanggo”-graduate “construction businesses.”

Last 4 years, it’s been a so much divisive issue for South Korean society. As a result, this project, from the very beginning of its inception, has earned not any genuine sense of respects or supports.

Instead it’s earned harsh critiques, condemnations and strong oppositions from all walks of life.

Even globally-recognized and broardly respected foreign natural scientists, specialists and experts even from German government on the river questions have voluntarily visited those “dying 4 rivers” in Korea.

Eventually, therefore, his project has earned a very cynical but tragic nickname, ”The 4 Rivers Destructin Project” or “The Killing 4 Rivers Project.”

IV

Lee’s very much confrontational, antagonistic “anti-North” policy as known the so-called “absorption policy” like the case of Germany is considered by most “the worst in Korea’s division history.”

However, this isn’t a news anymore. It’s also well known for those torturous four years.

His notoriously well-known ultraright Christian fundamentalist ideology, just like the G. W. Bush, seems to have made him so blind ideologically, i.e., anti-communism in general, anti-north in particular.

That could be why his logic is terribly illogical first and foremost. Therefore his talking style is completely out of touch thereby horribly arbitrary again just like that of the W Bush.

It’s been like a daily torture for many Koreans to see him on TV, internet and newspapers. His hate-filled or hatemongering anti-North mentality in particular, “the red complex” in general goes beyond imagination.

As we’ve seen last four years, his blindly pro-US but anti-North and now even seemingly anti-China mentality seems to have made him even more deeply troublesome throughout the whole region.

Now it seems he stands high not only in Korea as “the worst troublemaker,” but also in the NEA region as ”Regional Troublemaker.”

By earning that shameful and disgraceful nickname, it’s like he’s put his own fellow Koreans from all walks of life relentlessly down to the ground so much.

He himself is such a tragic failure. He’s been such a misfortune for the whole Koreans in north, south and overseas.

Many have argued, however, his anti-China rethoric is essentially due to his politically embattled upcoming battle: the April General Election.

A politically new factor here in terms of Northeast Asian regional politics is the sitting South Korean president Lee, however, probably for the first time, has even used the China [anti-communism] Card for the purpose of his own political survival first and then for his faithful service of the US’ national interests.

To many, he often looks like he even doesn’t mind or care about the nation he supposed to serve and work with the regional friends, i.e., his immediate neighbors such as China and Russia which nations he supposed to relate well with good wills based upon those universally-upheld principles of “non-interference in other’s internal affairs, mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and co-prosperity.

However, as well-known now, the reality last four years has been both unbelievably and unimaginably the complete opposite.

V

According to South Korean media reports from all political ends including even some diehard conservatives, he seems acting as if he’s been trying to throw both the whole nation and the region into a nonstop whirlwind situation.

This tragic situation, of course, has been constantly accompanied by multiple crises both for the Korean peninsula and the whole region. Why?

Many have persuasively argued through which he’s been attempting to possibly get away from his insurmountable corruption, embazzelment, tax evasion charges and other numerous still legally-pending cases such as the most infamous “BBK” scandal with more than ten some other financial and legal scandals on the question.

As also well-known, he even seems to have dared to put the whole nation into a full scale war with the North.

In this deadly serious and most dangerous business, he seems doesn’t even mind to revive such a dangerous moment as he and the US both instigated at the end of 2010 when both sides of Korea physically exchanged live artillary fires.

As well-known, too, it was, after the semi-ending of Korean War in July 1953, for the first time the both sides physically engaged in a “limited war.”

It’s not a news anymore the worst pro-US flunkey Lee regime has continued to allow and join the US-led ongoing military drills on Korean soil, sea and sky all year round.

However, it’s been also not a news anymore the major and key characteristics of those US-led military drills have been intentionally aggressive and provocative against DPRK either.

Again, as many South Korean scholars and experts pointedly argue, these dangerous war games are undoubtedly intended to first divert people’s attentions from his numerous criminal scandals and thereby to survive from the embattled upcoming elections both in April and December.

However, many also argue Lee in fact doesn’t have any choice of his own in regard to the military issues on his own soil/land where he is supposed to be the “commander in chief” which is only in dream but not in reality.

This sort of argument, too, does have large supports as well in Korean politics.

After all, no matter how flunkey, cunning, vicious he’s been, it seems there has never been such a, as many claim, “insane” politician/personality in Korea’s division history to use both North and China Cards simultaneously for his own political survival.

Unbelievable and unimaginable!

Part II The Jeju Naval Base Another US Base in Korea: Strategic Threat to China

http://www.4thmedia.org/2012/03/22/the-jeju-naval-base-another-us-military-base-on-korean-soil-a-strategic-threat-to-china-ii/


Piece by Fidel Castro, former leader of Cuba:

The Burial Of Our Species -- The Road to Disaster

This Reflection could be written today, tomorrow or any other day without the risk of being mistaken. Our species faces new problems. When 20 years ago I stated at the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro that a species was in danger of extinction, I had fewer reasons than today for warning about a danger that I was seeing perhaps 100 years away. At that time, a handful of leaders of the most powerful countries were in charge of the world. They applauded my words as a matter of mere courtesy and placidly continued to dig for the burial of our species.

It seemed that on our planet, common sense and order reigned. For a while economic development, backed by technology and science appeared to be the Alpha and Omega of human society.

Today, everything is much clearer. Profound truths have been surfacing. Almost 200 States, supposedly independent, constitute the political organization which in theory has the job of governing the destiny of the world.

Approximately 25,000 nuclear weapons in the hands of allied or enemy forces ready to defend the changing order, by interest or necessity, virtually reduce to zero the rights of billions of people.

I shall not commit the naïveté of assigning the blame to Russia or China for the development of that kind of weaponry, after the monstrous massacre at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ordered by Truman after Roosvelt’s death.

Nor shall I fall prey to the error of denying the Holocaust that signified the deaths of millions of children and adults, men or women, mainly Jews, gypsies, Russians or other nationalities, who were victims of Nazism. For that reason the odious policy of those who deny the Palestinian people their right to exist is repugnant.

Does anyone by chance think that the United States will be capable of acting with the independence that will keep it from the inevitable disaster awaiting it?

In a few weeks, the 40 million dollars President Obama promised to collect for his electoral campaign will only serve to show that the currency of his country is greatly devaluated, and that the US, with its unusual growing public debt drawing close to 20 quadrillion, is living on the money it prints up and not on the money it produces. The rest of the world pays for what they waste.

Nor does anyone believe that the Democratic candidate would be any better or worse than his Republican foes: whether they are called Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum. Light years separate the three characters as important as Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King. It is really unheard-of to observe such a technologically powerful nation and a government so bereft of both ideas and moral values.

Iran has no nuclear weapons. It is being accused of producing enriched uranium that serves as fuel energy or components for medical uses. Whatever one can say, its possession or production is not equivalent to the production of nuclear weapons. Dozens of countries use enriched uranium as an energy source, but this cannot be used in the manufacture of a nuclear weapon without a prior complicated purification process.

However, Israel, with the aid and cooperation of the United States, manufactured nuclear weaponry without informing or accounting to anybody, today not admitting their possession of these weapons, they have hundreds of them. To prevent the development of research in neighbouring Arab countries, they attacked and destroyed reactors in Iraq and Syria. They have also declared their aim of attacking and destroying the production centres for nuclear fuel in Iran.

International politics have been revolving around that crucial topic in that complex and dangerous part of the world, where most of the fuel that moves the world economy is produced and supplied.

The selective elimination of Iran’s most eminent scientists by Israel and their NATO allies has become a practice that motivates hatred and feelings of revenge.

The Israeli government has openly stated its objective to attack the plant manufacturing Iran’s enriched uranium, and the government of the United States has invested billions of dollars to manufacture a bomb for that purpose.

On March 16, 2012, Michel Chossudovsky and Finian Cunningham published an article revealing that “A top US Air Force General has described the largest conventional bomb – the re-invented bunkers of 13.6 tones – as ‘fantastic’ for a military attack on Iran.

“Such an eloquent comment on the massive killer-artefact took place in the same week that President Barack Obama appeared to warn against ‘easy words’ on the Persian Gulf War.”

“…Herbert Carlisle, deputy chief of staff for US Air Force operations […] added that probably the bomb would be used in any attack on Iran ordered by Washington.

“The MOP, also referred to as ‘The Mother of All Bombs’, is designed to drill through 60 metres of concrete before it detonates its massive bomb. It is believed to be the largest conventional weapon, non-nuclear, in the US arsenal.”

“The Pentagon is planning a process of wide destruction of Iran’s infrastructure and massive civilian victims through the combined use of tactical nuclear bombs and monstrous conventional bombs with mushroom-shaped clouds, including the MOABs and the larger GBU-57A/B or Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) that exceeds the MOAB in destructive capacity.

“The MOP is described as ‘a powerful new bomb that aims straight at subterranean Iranian and North Korean nuclear facilities. The giant bomb –longer than 11 persons shoulder to shoulder, or more than 6 metres from end to end’.”

I ask the reader to excuse me for this complicated military jargon.

As one can see, such calculations arise from the supposition that the Iranian combatants, numbering millions of men and women well-known for their religious zeal and their fighting traditions, surrender without firing a shot.

In recent days, the Iranians have seen how US soldiers occupying Afghanistan, in just three weeks, urinated on the corpses of killed Afghans, burned copies of the Koran and murdered more than 15 defenceless citizens.

Let us imagine US forces launching monstrous bombs on industrial institutions, capable of penetrating through 60 metres of concrete. Never has such an undertaking ever been conceived.

Not one word more is needed to understand the gravity of such a policy. In that way, our species will be inexorably led towards disaster. If we do not learn how to understand, we shall never learn how to survive.

As for me, I harbour not the slightest doubt that the United States is about to commit and lead the world towards the greatest mistake in its history.

complete dominion
by breaker Saturday, Mar 24 2012, 10:19am

America's military installations in S. Korea and elsewhere targeting China prove that the FIVE full scale bases demanded by Washington and unquestionably granted by lackey Oz PM Gillard are not necessary on Australian soil; however, in the same way as genital groping and airport scanners are really designed to psychologically intimidate and oppress the population, American bases on the soil of other sovereign nations are a symbol of America's complete dominion over subject governments and nations!

It remains to be seen how the Oz public will react when they wake to the dangerous and appalling reality their treasonous and INEPT governments have UNNECESSARILY placed them in.

N. Korea's missile tests aimed at Australia for the first time are clearly at the behest of Beijing - make no mistake about that! Non-aggressive China has been provoked to the extreme and is now reacting to American threats -- the least said about the shameless and COWARDLY subservience of Canberra to Washington the better!

simple and unavoidable solution
by sol Saturday, Mar 24 2012, 10:32pm

The American people have had over a decade to rout the Wall St and Corporatist rot that has infected their entire government/nation and State institutions.

Their failure to remove unrepresentative minority Zionist and other elite elements leads to the obvious conclusion that the majority of Americans are party to the criminal pursuits of its ruling elites, which have been conducting an illegal criminal campaign of invasive warfare since the Balkan invasion -- to hell with sovereign nations and their people. Today's America is a murdering thug and a plague on all civilised societies, NO DOUBT!

The world has now lost patience with the civilian killing terrorists of America and its system of gangster rule.

It is clear the State has become a totalitarian nightmare; the last three executive orders/laws are testimony to the fact!

Little CHOICE remains for the free world at this stage but to OBLITERATE the threat before it continues to wreak more havoc and destruction on the WORLD.

However, a more surgical approach from WITHIN is PREFERABLE; but the only force able to effect change from within is the CONSTITUTIONALLY EMPOWERED, but unfortunately completely subjugated, beaten and ineffective American population.

So it leaves no choice for the free world -- the entire nation must be razed to the ground as a matter of NECESSITY. Consider the consequences if this 'disease' is NOT stemmed now? A far worse calamity would befall the planet. America is now in the hands of sick madmen and 'fried' sociopaths that seek peace in the substitute orgasmic thrill of total annihilation (including themselves) -- believe it!

At great cost to the rest of the world America and her pathetic puppet allies must be COMPREHENSIVELY DEFEATED/DESTROYED if peace is to have any chance in the future.

Failure to act now would result in a far worse hell in the future!
