Why exactly should Korea matter to anyone else?

14 Apr

It’s a tiny little peninsula; South Korea is not a huge market; why should we care?

Let them do whatever. It really doesn’t matter.

Why should the world go to the brink of nuclear war over it?

This is brilliant 4D chess?

Bombing Syria was about this?

And it was a good idea?

You’d have to be a Mensa to believe something so fucking absurd.

    Hey, what about America First?

    Oh yeah; been forgotten already.

    I’ve been warning people about the fake ‘Korean Crisis’ and who’s behind it now for some time. This is article is more or less a summary of it:

    Talk about the ‘Deep State.’ I still think that China is going to intervene at the last moment. A US strike on North Korea’s nuclear facilities would spread radioactive fallout all over China; and the Chinese certainly don’t want an US occupation force on the Yalu River.

    Think of it as being in prison. You are the daddy, and some up and coming chump wants to be the daddy. You have to slap that bitch down.

    If “pork chop” gets away with this, he can then get away with anything.

    Soon, and if he gets his trotters on a real nuke, he can start raiding ships, kidnapping more people, fire off a few misses at the South – in general be a bad little piggy.

    And if one little piggy is bad, the other little piggies will all want to have a go…..

    China, North Korea, Pakistan, Turkey…….

    One possibility is that Japan, South Korea, Vietnam etc all come under the orbit of wannabe daddy China – an “Asian Alliance” and can and will shut their ports to U.S goodies.

    Most of the trade, and most of the money, will be in Asia this century.

    That is why it matters.

      But North Korea is an insignificant pipsqueak of a nation, and no doubt China would deal with them if China thought they were a threat to it. Why should America involve itself?

      As for China, they still want access to the Western markets, so they’re not going to shut out the West.

      I had hoped Trump was going to be about what makes sense for American interests, which surely is not to get involved in more wars, not more being Globo-Cop, wasting American dollars and lives on more stupid imperial adventures. I’m disappointed.

    Think of the U.S. as a former collegiate heavyweight boxing champion, a Mohammad Ali who was invincible in his prime, but who is now a palsied, overweight, beer-bloated slug who can barely get up out of his easy chair without stroking out, but who packs an AR-15 at his side to (what he thinks will) “give him an edge.” Yet this pathetic has-been, who doesn’t like that pesky thing called “reality” and thus works overtime to avoid it at all costs, talks a non-stop stream of belligerent smack to the younger, faster, stronger kids on the block while making threating gestures and waving and pointing his AR-15 indescriminantly. Pretty soon the new kids on the block –several of whom, incidentally, have their own AR-15s– are gonna tire of his demented belligerent bullshit, goad him into overreaching, and coĺlectively kick the shit out of him when, in his delusional arrogance, he finally decides he can get away with firing his AR-15 at the crowd.

      That’s exactly how I think of the bipartisan, imperial American leadership.

      And while I wish America the country, the people well, I look forward to the smackdown against the hubristic imperial regime. I hope to see it humbled in my lifetime. I would have preferred to see the regime change character, and embrace isolationism, but I guess that’s too much to ask, even for the Donald.

        That’s far too kind of you, Will. I cannot imagine anyone on the outside having any reason to wish us anything other than a slow, agonizing national death while suffering the destruction and agony we’ve caused so many other nations over the past seven decades with our endless imperial meddling. Far too many “little people” here have been enthusiastic cheerleaders for this evil. The only conceivable way to get them to change their way of thinking is for them to suffer what their government has for so long visited upon so many other countries.

        Don’t get me wrong; as a partisan of the Redcoats, I’d prefer for America to acknowledge the error of its founders’ ways, and petition to rejoin British North America, i.e. Canada. 😉

        But, as a second best option, I’d be happy to see America return to the ostensible ways of its founders, avoiding ‘entangling alliances’ and all that…

    I had hoped Trump was going to be about what makes sense for American interests, which surely is not to get involved in more wars, not more being Globo-Cop, wasting American dollars and lives on more stupid imperial adventures. I’m disappointed.

    Lesson Number One here is that The One Percent, the Deep State, is more firmly in control than anyone imagined and that resistance (i.e., taking them on from the inside) is futile. If a tough-guy billionaire like Trump can’t beat them, I’m hardpressed to imagine who else could either (sure as hell no ordinarily politico wannabe).

    Lesson Number Two, soon to be demonstrated: the Amoricon public is more stupid, gullible, and delusional than anyone imagined and, far from FINALLY learning how futile and what a scam voting and “democracy” are, will go back to the polls ONCE AGAIN in 2020 and either re-elect the guy who lied to them and stabbed in the back the first time, or throw their weight behind some other lying weasel who will just continue the status quo. It’s obviously over, there is no “government by, of, and for the People (and never has been),” but these brainless dopes would rather delude themselves and continue to be “led” into disaster than take responsibity for themselves and let the system collapse.

    In reality, they shouldn’t but our status as reserve currency and the wealth extraction of the elite depends on us playing hegemon

    Also The Norks have repeatedly threatened to nuke the US and apparently have the capacity to do do so with new ballistic missiles . Its not certain that us simply leaving now would put an end to that.

      In fairness to the Norks, their threats have all been conditionally phrased, something never reported in the western media. The “if you attack us…” is always left off. All we’re told is the “…we’ll destroy you” part.

      If one games it out, there is no set of circumstances wherein NK would start a war with the US.

      The farce of the “North Korean threat” has gone on for decades. The emperor has no clothes…

        Yep. However, the Marching Morons (a.k.a. the Amoricon public) don’t know that and don’t want to know that. Hence the Ministry of Truth (a.k.a. the lamestream media) get away with their lies and omissions.

        What I’d love to see made into a documentary: someone reprising a Jay Leno “Jaywalking” scenario by setting up in some public place a giant globe showing the borders of all of the world’s countries, but with no name labels. Then have random passers-by point to places like Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, and Syria (preferably after interviewing them and determining their level of jingoistic nationalist belligerence). The results would no doubt be HIGHLY entertaining, if horrifying.

      I doubt it. All the Norks want is to be left alone, far as I can see; they’ve never had designs on anywhere other than South Korea.
