North Korea, Iran, Venezuela are targets in “compassionate” America’s war on the “wicked few.” It’s almost as though Washington felt its hegemony threatened
by Pepe Escobar for the Asia Times
This was no “deeply philosophical address”. And hardly a show of “principled realism” – as spun by the White House. President Trump at the UN was “American carnage,” to borrow a phrase previously deployed by his nativist speechwriter Stephen Miller.
One should allow the enormity of what just happened to sink in, slowly. The president of the United States, facing the bloated bureaucracy that passes for the “international community,” threatened to “wipe off the map” the whole of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (25 million people). And may however many millions of South Koreans who perish as collateral damage be damned.
Multiple attempts have been made to connect Trump’s threats to the madman theory cooked up by “Tricky Dicky” Nixon in cahoots with Henry Kissinger, according to which the USSR must always be under the impression the then-US president was crazy enough to, literally, go nuclear. But the DPRK will not be much impressed with this madman remix.
That leaves, on the table, a way more terrifying upgrade of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Trump repeatedly invoked Truman in his speech). Frantic gaming will now be in effect in both Moscow and Beijing: Russia and China have their own stability / connectivity strategy under development to contain Pyongyang.
The Trump Doctrine has finally been enounced and a new axis of evil delineated. The winners are North Korea, Iran and Venezuela. Syria under Assad is a sort of mini-evil, and so is Cuba. Crucially, Ukraine and the South China Sea only got a fleeting mention from Trump, with no blunt accusations against Russia and China. That may reflect at least some degree of realpolitik; without “RC” – the Russia-China strategic partnership at the heart of the BRICS bloc and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) – there’s no possible solution to the Korean Peninsula stand-off.
In this epic battle of the “righteous many” against the “wicked few,” with the US described as a “compassionate nation” that wants “harmony and friendship, not conflict and strife,” it’s a bit of a stretch to have Islamic State – portrayed as being not remotely as “evil” as North Korea or Iran – get only a few paragraphs.
The art of unraveling a deal
According to the Trump Doctrine, Iran is “an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed and chaos,” a “murderous regime” profiting from a nuclear deal that is “an embarrassment to the United States.”
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted: “Trump’s ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times – not the 21st century UN – unworthy of a reply.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov once again stressed full support for the nuclear deal ahead of a P5+1 ministers’ meeting scheduled for Wednesday, when Zarif was due to be seated at the same table as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Under review: compliance with the deal. Tillerson is the only one who wants a renegotiation.
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has, in fact, developed an unassailable argument on the nuclear negotiations. He says the deal – which the P5+1 and the IAEA all agree is working – could be used as a model elsewhere. German chancellor Angela Merkel concurs. But, Rouhani says, if the US suddenly decides to unilaterally pull out, how could the North Koreans possibly be convinced it’s worth their while to sit down to negotiate anything with the Americans ?
What the Trump Doctrine is aiming at is, in fact, a favourite old neo-con play, reverting back to the dynamics of the Dick Cheney-driven Washington-Tehran Cold War years.
This script runs as follows: Iran must be isolated (by the West, only now that won’t fly with the Europeans); Iran is “destabilizing” the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, the ideological foundry of all strands of Salafi-jihadism, gets a free pass); and Iran, because it’s developing ballistic that could – allegedly – carry nuclear warheads, is the new North Korea.
That lays the groundwork for Trump to decertify the deal on October 15. Such a dangerous geopolitical outcome would then pit Washington, Tel Aviv, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi against Tehran, Moscow and Beijing, with European capitals non-aligned. That’s hardly compatible with a “compassionate nation” which wants “harmony and friendship, not conflict and strife.”
Afghanistan comes to South America
The Trump Doctrine, as enounced, privileges the absolute sovereignty of the nation-state. But then there are those pesky “rogue regimes” which must be, well, regime-changed. Enter Venezuela, now on “the brink of total collapse,” and run by a “dictator”; thus, America “cannot stand by and watch.”
No standing by, indeed. On Monday, Trump had dinner in New York with the presidents of Colombia, Peru and Brazil (the last indicted by the country’s Attorney General as the leader of a criminal organization and enjoying an inverted Kim dynasty rating of 95% unpopularity). On the menu: regime change in Venezuela.
Venezuelan “dictator” Maduro happens to be supported by Moscow and, most crucially, Beijing, which buys oil and has invested widely in infrastructure in the country with Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht crippled by the Car Wash investigation.
The stakes in Venezuela are extremely high. In early November, Brazilian and American forces will be deployed in a joint military exercise in the Amazon rainforest, at the Tri-Border between Peru, Brazil and Colombia. Call it a rehearsal for regime change in Venezuela. South America could well turn into the new Afghanistan, a consequence that flows from Trump’s assertion that “major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell.”
For all the lofty spin about “sovereignty”, the new axis of evil is all about, once again, regime change.
South America could turn into the new Afghanistan, a consequence that flows from Trump’s assertion that “major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell”
Russia-China aim to defuse the nuclear stand-off, then seduce North Korea into sharing in the interpenetration of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU), via a new Trans-Korea Railway and investments in DPRK ports. The name of the game is Eurasian integration.
Iran is a key node of BRI. It’s also a future full member of the SCO, it’s connected – via the North-South Transport Corridor – with India and Russia, and is a possible future supplier of natural gas to Europe. The name of the game, once again, is Eurasian integration.
Venezuela, meanwhile, holds the largest unexplored oil reserves on the planet, and is targeted by Beijing as a sort of advanced BRI node in South America.
The Trump Doctrine introduces a new set of problems for Russia-China. Putin and Xi do dream of reenacting a balance of power similar to that of the Concert of Europe, which lasted from 1815 (after Napoleon’s defeat) until the brink of World War I in 1914. That’s when Britain, Austria, Russia and Prussia decided that no European nation should be able to emulate the hegemony of France under Napoleon. In sitting as judge and executioner, Trump’s “compassionate” America certainly seems intent on echoing such hegemony.
This is a very dangarous situation. I do not see any possibility for Russia and or China to avoid a direct confrontation with the US, in spite of the enormous efforts to avoid this, specially by Russia in Syria and the Ukraine.
Vassal BBC has this mind-softening piece of watered down pap on the UN speech:
How the world reacted to Trump’s UN speech
The clip may have been taken out of context by the BBC otherwise the Colombian journalist just doesn’t seem to get it. And it hardly represents the world. Time to take those CIA/MI6 blinkers off Beeb.
Pepe as usual is ahead on the shape of things to come, and apt with the historical parallel in his final para: 100 years of peace in Europe by rejecting “the hegemony of France under Napoleon”.
It is indeed salutary to be reminded of what Napoleon said after tackling Russia: “Able was I ere I saw Moscow”. A salutary lesson for The Man of Manifest Destiny”, a lesson which was echoed by a later hegemony monger. After Hitler saw the hegemony of Germany under Hitler shattered by the shock of tackling Russia, the Leader of Exceptional People bitterly reproached himself: “My genius was wasted, l should have led the Russians: they are the Master Race”.
If Pepe’s historical parallel is correct, then I look forward to 100 years of world peace after an end to the hegemony of the USA. Trump may be the one to precipitate the smash, or some other power drunk nobody in the Oval Office, but the forthcoming line up does not look good for Uncle: the USA pitting itself (together with Israel, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi) against Russia, Iran and China. Forsooth!
That matchup is in play already in Syria. And will also be seen in Iraq before this is over. And it is playing out in Lebanon. (Hariri in Moscow last week). And it is influencing the Kingdom in Jordan. He is a staunch ally of US and Israel but he is a realist. Thus all the concessions to Syria along his border via Russian diplomacy-military talks.
Though it always sets up as a military confrontation, take full note of how much talking is done by Russians. Deconfliction, de-escalation, reconciliation, humanitarian, and then the ‘silent talk’ of Intel chiefs and General Staffs. Only then come the purposeful air strikes by jet or Kalibr.
Russia is masterful. Don’t lose heart. Mother has many strong weapons to wage peace as well as war.
Putin once told a telling story about a Russian military intelligence person in Afghanistan during the war. Putin said that the military man judged his success not by the number of missiles he fired, but by the number he didn’t – ie use force as the last resort then go all in.
@Larchmonter. Like mother Russia, Mother Iran knows also how to wage peace. While Trumpetty Trump trumpets warr-to-warr! against-Irran! the conservative UK Telegraph announces that UK investment is set to build world’s largest solar farm in Iran.
“Not only is this positive news for us [the investment firm], but also fantastic news for the UK, representing a major milestone for trade relations with Iran. Iran is seeing unprecedented levels of investments since the lifting of international sanctions, and we are proud to be leading the UK’s push into this market,” he said.
Yes, Iran is using its market and its money (purchasing from EU) as the honey. Being a “new” market for the big EU corporations is just too much for them to go backward in relationship with Iran.
The sanctions Trump may want to reimpose will not have China and Russia behind them again. And it sounds like the EU officials (eg., Federica Mogherini) are adamant that Iran will not be sanctioned based on Trump’s view of things.
Israel cannot wag the EU dog like it can Washington.
But, they can fashion a false flag. Bibi and the IDF are very anxious and want war (led by US).
Iran has to be very cool and not take the bait. They are winning.
“My genius was wasted, l should have led the Russians: they are the Master Race”.
it starts on 0:25.
This is the fully renovated Trump, torn down and remodeled after 6 months of Deep State cleansing.
We can rebuild him… we have the technology…
More Thoughts on Trump’s UN Declaration of War Against Iran and North Korea
+1 for Six Million Dollar Man reference. ;)
When I think of the prototypical spook, the Oscar Goldman character comes to mind. He was head of the fictional “Office of Strategic Operations” (OSO), not to be confused with the real-life Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI), the part of the CIA that studied Soviet science and technology during the Cold War.
Re Iran in the crosshairs:
There’s an interesting article by Phillip Giraldi, who is no slouch
around US Politics at:
If this is correct, – he names names and gives dates, I would expect Iran to
rise to the top of the ‘Destroy’ agenda. Every Hasbara manual I have seen
since year 2000 features Iran as an existential threat to Israel.
With omminous assertions ; Zero evidence.
And regrettably, likely to be self fulfilling prophecy.

A comment from out esteemed ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) on an article white-washing Trumps vomit
‘Finally some reality check for the UN from the briliant US President.So refreshing that after years of the Obama waffling the reality is clearly presented and the world starts listening. Well done Mr Trump…’
,,,,, and beside that article on Trump (which, when you think about it, threatens nuclear war) the really important hot topic in Australia at the moment …..’Should the law be changed to allow homosexuals to marry”
….. and a picture of two homosexual men kissing
As one of my favourite pollies said on the subject “get out of my face!”
I think I will go outside and do some gardening …. I must be missing the point somewhere
Trump didn’t threaten nuclear war. He threatened genocide of 27 million humans in North Korea.

“General Kelly had his head in his hands, face down.

Likely both were bored. No doubt kelly had imput on the speech and heard it hashed over multiple times. Melania probably sat through several delivery practice runs by “dear leader”, IE: “yes dear, that was very nice. Can we go shopping at Tiffany’s now?”
@I think I will go outside and do some gardening
Good on ye, mate! There are years I resist the urge to go outside (not to do gardening, but to throw up) when watching the crap spewed on a regular basis by the ‘Aunty’ (duly imitated by all the excreting channels of OzTV).
Do you remember a “Dave Allen Show’ of the late 80s when Dave was quipping: “I leave (the beautiful UK) before homosexuality became compulsory”? We all heartily laughed. We don’t anymore. Especially since the ‘Knight of the round Table’ (aka Rhodes Scholar) Mr. Turncoat (or Turntable?) was assigned the task to preside over it (“Lucy and I are voting ‘yes’. And we ABSOLUTELY are voting ‘yes’ and I encourage others to do so. But above all I encourage everyone to vote”). Gosh, ‘I love Lucy’, don’t you?
“Thanks Mr Turnbull… thank you say hi to Lucy”.
Of course, I vote No.

There is something horribly psychotic and dissociative in the phrase “wipe off the map” . The psychotic blithely utters it and the listeners, clueless, discount its meaning. Trump just abused the whole planet.
What gives this man, any man, the right to trash talk annilhilation like that? This is the ultimate hate speech. Does everyone realize that in the nuclear desert which will ensue the only thing able to move will be mechanical devices? That is why this is feasible to these monsters, these enemies of humanity.
Trump has sold his soul to the worst of the worse. And he did it for free.
The words “wipe off the map”, in quotation marks in the article, are the article’s author’s. The U.S. President’s actual words were “totally destroy”, equally evil, but less colorful. The author’s exaggerated color was useful if it got you to write your wise comment.
hilarry used ”we’ll obliterate” iran….
what’s the difference’?
From the people who work so assiduously against ‘hate speech’.
There are no words.
No, only Iran and Russia are in American sights. The yanks created N Korea for the same reason the Soviets created East Germany- a perpetual excuse for keeping a nation split. If the yanks left tomorrow, Korea would be unified the day after, and attacked by Japan the day after that. The situation in the Far East is as American designed it to be after WW2- and the status quo serves American interests by serving Japan’s interests. Hell will freeze over before Trump goes ‘to war’ with N Korea
Venezuela is to the USA as Zimbabwe is to the UK- a constant ***mock*** whipping boy that the sheeple are always told is on the verge of being attacked, but never is. In reality Z and V have the regimes that the UK and USA really desire.
Look, what happened while Trump was promising war on Iran? Two major things. The Morgan Freeman “Russia is at war with the USA” video produced by infamous hollywood liberal jew Rob Reiner. And the recent massive attack on Russian forces in Syria by CIA proxies- so disgustingly blatant Russia has actually called out America over the incident (BTW our side won and wiped out a massive USA sponsored terrorist brigade in possibly the biggest one day defeat in American history in Syria).
You see it was noted that Trump didn’t attack Russia in his UN speech- but that’s because his handlers knew the above two moves were imminent. Russia was attacked by deed not word. And this is the escalation too many on our side are still trying to deny.
The last gasp action by the US terror gangs at Idlib mark the effective end of ‘traditional’ US sponsored actions in Syria. The US generals want to pull out- accepting that Russia’s unstoppable short term will will give Assad full control over the whole of Syria. Turkey is currently ***pretending*** to be Russia’s friend, and the ‘kurdish issue’ has all the regional players in full-blown anti-kurdish-independence mode. The kurds are on a hiding to a truly historic setback if they continue playing the American game- and their leaders just aren’t that stupid. The best America could do is expend the lives of a ton of dumb kurdish kids to no purpose, but the parents of those kids would then hate America for generations to come.
The Idlib attack was truly the last gasp of the thicker war hawks on Team Clinton. Now the smarter war hawks will have exclusive access to Trump’s ear- and their song is “only Iran matters at this time”.
We are thus moving into a massive propaganda phase where the demonisation of Putin/Russia will increase exponentially. The UK plans to take the World Cup (football) away from Russia- and without a doubt they will succeed, striking a killing blow to Russia’s reputation and morale. The hate-o-meter must be pushed to max for both Iran and Russia. In the short term, Russia may well make it impossible for America to terror attack Iran in Syria or Iran proper, so ‘words’ will be used instead.
But ‘words’ are not going to be enough for the Deep State. While waiting for the hate-o-meter to move into the red for Iran, allowing the USA to declare war when public support is great enough, the Deep State must cause actual physical events that shake the world. This could be a much increased bout of false-flag terror across the West. When it comes to idiot extremist islamic patsy children the cups of the intelligence services of Germany, France, Uk and USA floweth over. The ‘terrorists returning home from Syria’ meme will be all the excuse needed to explain away the surge.
But simple terror won’t be enough either. The Deep State needs enduring ‘spectaculars’, ideally directly involving Russia in and around Russia itself. With Syria done, all the low hanging fruit is gone. NATO would love to ferment revolt on Russia’s borders- but Ukraine does tend to demonstrate the limits of this tactic. However the Deep State is always one step ahead of us because it never need to be rational. 911 came out of the blue. Getting Saddam to invade Kuwait came out of the blue. The invasion of Iraq seemed an impossible nonsense, since Saddam was gagging to meet any commercial demand of the West re:Iraqi oil. The destruction of Syria, when Assad had been such a servile puppet of Tony Blair, could not have been predicted- likewsie the destruction of Libya ***after*** Gadaffi became the lapdog of Tony Blair.
It is the Deep State’s ability to be truly ‘crazy’ that ruins any hope of Putin preempting it. Crazy and ruthless. But the Deep State always lists its ultimate goals well in advance. Iran is going down- nothing in this life is more certain. And the public will learn of America’s declaration of war against Iran ***after*** the first round of tactical nuclear strikes delivered by America, France and the UK- that have given the Human Race its first taste of the ‘new’ way the West will now be conducting its wars. 70+ years of nuke weapon research finally going live as a battlefield option- and six months later most people won’t even be bothered that now the West’s laser guided bombs frequently have nuclear warheads. The BBC will have shown too many videos of ‘brave’ RAF pilots nuking ‘evil’ Iranian facilities with far greater success than traditional explosives could ever have had.
But what we will see in good time will be the propaganda methods used to get enough people hating the Iranians first. I’d ‘follow the money’. Tony Blair has forced Israel loving propaganda into all British Schools, and the same has happened in France. There’s more anti-nazi propaganda taught in schools today than in the decades that followed WW2. It all stinks of a Deep State intention to have a 911 scale false flag in Israel itself blamed on Iran. “oh no, the poor jews are at risk again- we must all rally together and do wahtever it takes to save them”. However if they do go this route, the time between the false flag and the nuclear decapacitation strikes in Iran will be measured in days.
Sadly I know that second guessing the Deep State is nigh-on impossible. All the pre-propaganda work has been done for the false flag in Israel play. But its this very reason I suspect they’ll go another way.
A massive diplomatic escalation against Russia is also possible. The Entire West expelling all Russian diplomats and ending all trade with Russia. The propaganda has been laid down for this option as well- the old “we can’t beat Russia in a fight but we can certainly isolate Russia as a planetry pariah”. Putin’s terrible weakness as an Empire Leader tempts the Deep State to go down this unthinkable route more than they should in a sane demonic world.
In the mid-term Trump is a key factor. Why is the Deep State now grooming Trump for a second term (and they most certainly are by having the democratic party self destruct before voters eyes in the States- witness Hillary Clinton being allowed to stir up powerful factional hatreds in that party this month)? The Deep State now thinks Trump is better than anyone who might replace him next time.
Trump wants ‘spectaculars’ but only if they are guaranteed to work out. So we know with total certainty that Trump’s Deep State handlers are using this desire of Trump to get Trump to authorise massive actions behind the scenes- almost certainly actions deemed as required for the road to war with Iran- but maybe something else really terrible in the interim. I’d say maybe this is budget increases- but tjhe Deep State already has more funds than it knows what to do with. The stockpile of tactical nuclear warheads for Iran has been finished long before Trump’s time.
It could be Trump authorising the removal of all people against war with Iran – because believe me in the Deep State Human Machine are an astonishing number of well appointed people in all fields dead against nuking Iran. But they are mostly ‘old’- people who started to rise ***before*** Tony Blair’s time. The young in the Deep State, however, are all 100% ‘Common Purpose’ Blairites (whether in the UK, USA or Europe). The people with the ‘wrong’ opinions cannot be easily removed by their peers, or the ‘youngsters’, because of how hierachies work in the West. The ‘culling’ can only really be done by the ‘king’.
Anyhoo we all speculate, because that is all we can do. I never speculate by foolishly taking on the ‘talking points’ of the zionist/Soros media because I’m not stupid. But knowing the historic reasons why N Korea is in no risk of an American War- indeed why that is totally nonsensical by definition (yet I’ll admit the First Gulf War on Iraq was likewise nonsensical by definition- yet that happened for reasons we only understood many many years later) doesn’t really help spot what will happen. All I know with 100% certainty is that the demons of the Deep State need to win the hearts and minds of the general population. Without the support of the people the demons cannot act powerfully. Convincing the people to become pro-war is possibly Blair’s greatest achievement yet.
Whether we like it or not, the anti-war sentiment held by the general population for decades after WW2 has been converted into the very opposite. Some here will confuse an ever present hatred of friendly casualties for a hatred of war- wrong, so very very wrong. Indeed a smart monster like Tony Blair builds pro-war sentiment on the back of people hating ***their*** soldiers dying on foreign battlefields. And the nihilism Team Tony Blair has seeded amongst a key segment of the young is also fertile ground for pro-war feelings.
The spreading of aggressive wars is the common factor of the Deep State. War is the very lifeblood of our current Deep State. The Orwellian poisoning of all major Earth societies is the fertiliser for war. Religious extremism and hatreds. And attack on all personal freedoms, and making people feel like a cog in the machne. An attack on fundamental Human dignity- especially war on the conventional family, and despite aimed at ‘white males’ for the ‘crime’ for having successfully built and invented things that benefit the entire world.
Notice how the Deep State (in its public facade) is a ‘rainbow coalition’. Ever really wondered why? Why perverting liberal values is so useful?
No enlightened person ever believed in ‘race’ (it is the most trivial science to prove all Humans belong to a single race), or felt people should be persecuted for their ***private*** sexual preferences. Likewise no enlightened person was against the idea of equality of ***opportunity*** or Freedom of Conscience (the individual’s right to chose their own spiritual beliefs).
So the Deep State Rainbow Coalition, that has won the hearts and minds of almost all of our children, co-opts the opinions of the enlightened in an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” fashion. Black is white, up is down. And gays ‘deserve’ to be given the prize of children (via ‘adoption’) torn from their mother’s breasts by economic circumstances the same gays have helped to manufacture, as a ‘reward’ for what they do with their private parts. The USA has the most astonishing rate of adoption, because the war on mothers was a key plank in the very formation of that nation.
Demons hate the traditional family and demons hate mothers, not to ‘celebrate’ ‘alternative’ lifestyles (which everyone should have the option to choose), but to weaken all of us. I was raised in an extended family which was normal for me and thus taken for granted, But across the years I have been shocked to my core at the number of people I knew who later told me how much they envied my old school family, and how they tried to create the same for themselves as they grew older.
The Rainbow Alliance is all about locating the successful foundations of Humanity, and taking a sledgehammer to them- in the name of ***false*** enlightenment. Russia is big on traditional values, and Russia’s heart is in the right place. Russia’s humanitarian efforts in Syria that follow Russia military wins show this admirably. Will Putin finally wake up, join us, and begin a real war for the Soul of Humanity?
@The yanks created N Korea for the same reason the Soviets created East Germany…
Better have the facts in historical ‘light’ than in any ‘twilight’.
In actual fact the Yanks created South Korea (I suspect that there is a typo):
“August 15, the Republic of Korea formally came into existence”.
“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) was proclaimed on September 9, with Kim as premier”
“The Federal Republic of Germany was established after World War II in the zones occupied by the United States, United Kingdom, and France (excluding Saarland) on May 24, 1949”
“Five months after declaration of the western Federal Republic of Germany (better known as West Germany), on October 7, 1949, the DWK formed a provisional government and proclaimed establishment of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany).
“West Germany joined NATO on 9 May 1955”
“On 14 May 1955, the USSR and other seven European countries “reaffirming their desire for the establishment of a system of European collective security based on the participation of all European states irrespective of their social and political systems” established the Warsaw Pact in response to the integration of the Federal Republic of Germany into NATO declaring that: “a remilitarized Western Germany and the integration of the latter in the North-Atlantic bloc […] increase the danger of another war and constitutes a threat to the national security of the peaceable states; […] in these circumstances the peaceable European states must take the necessary measures to safeguard their security”.
Worth remembering that:
“In March 1954, the USSR, fearing the restoration of German militarism in West Germany, requested admission to NATO.
The Soviet request to join NATO arose in the aftermath of the Berlin Conference of January–February 1954. Soviet foreign minister Molotov made proposals to have Germany reunified and elections for a pan-German government, under conditions of withdrawal of the four powers’ armies and German neutrality, but all were refused by the other foreign ministers, Dulles (USA), Eden (UK) and Bidault (France)”.
Putin is not ” with us” ?
Is he with anyone?
” the first round of tactical nuclear strikes delivered by America, France and the UK- that have given the Human Race its first taste of the ‘new’ way the West will now be conducting its wars. 70+ years of nuke weapon research finally going live as a battlefield option”
Wrong. It has already happened. Quote Gordon Duff:
“…both Baghdad and Tora bora were nuked. They worked so well that they are here to stay. Any future battle will use them. The joint chiefs of staff stated after the battle of Baghdad that if we had used these in Vietnam we would have won. Never again will we ever lose with weapons like this in our arsenal. Mini and Micro nukes are here to stay so get use to it.”
When he says ‘nuked’ he means dialable neutron bombs that can go below 0.01KT. Google Chris Busby finding refined uranium in Iraq (NOT DU) and the Russians telling Sue Arrigo that not only were they aware that the yanks neutroned the Republican Guard, but they even know the serial numbers of the weapons used.
My hair is standing straight up now, because if I remember correctly, during the presidential campaign Mr. Trump made a comment to the effect that “if you have nuclear weapons, WHY NOT USE THEM?” Maybe it was just a nightmare I had…….Someone throw me a lifeline! –maybe I am wrong, confused, deluded in my opposition to endless wars, drowning in “inconsequential” issues and concerns facing the rest of humanity, and our home planet. America is being destroyed by severe weather events, and all these dotards can talk about is endless wars. …. the wars are actually on multiple fronts against we, the people, right here, right now….. no need to go looking for wars overseas.
The Rainbow Alliance is all about locating the successful foundations of Humanity, and taking a sledgehammer to them- in the name of ***false*** enlightenment

Japan Moves Missile Interceptor Under Flight Paths of North Korean Missiles
“Japan on Tuesday relocated an anti-missile battery to its Hakodate Base on the northern island of Hokkaido, near the flight paths of the ballistic missiles recently launched by Pyongyang.
Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera described the move as a precautionary measure against the growing threat from North Korea, which has recently been restlessly exhibiting its growing military strength.
“[North Korea] may launch ballistic missiles that would fly over our nation again in the future,” he told reporters Tuesday, the Japan Times reports. “To prepare for an emergency, we would like to make every effort possible to protect the people’s safety.”
The deployment was apparently necessary due to the PAC-3’s range of roughly 20 kilometers.
Japan relocated four more PAC-3 units to prefectures in western Japan in August after North Korea threatened to fire missiles toward the US territory of Guam.”
This is a pr stunt for propaganda, and a gay one at that. Patriot sam can only hit a missile at the end of it’s flight, missiles flying over the Patriot battery on their way to a target much further beyond would still be at too high an altitude for the Patriot sam to reach it.
My theory is that Trump made an over the top speech in order to throw off the warmongers in Washington.
Laying out the policy so starkly and crudely will make it harder to implement it.
Hence the body language of Trump’s Chief of Staff while listening to the speech (face palm etc.).
It’ s not a bad theory. I like it.
Maybe Trump can now pick up the phone and call Iran: see if they want a deal. :-)
Trump will get the Europeans and Russians to talk to the Iranians.
I suspect he will send one or more of the 3 generals to convince the Europeans to convince them to follow the US policy. And watch them fail.
It all comes down to this simple summation.
Jews, of the international variety, want to dominate and subjugate the entire world. Along with their Zionist-Christian lackeys, they will not stop trying even if it comes to a total and most destructive world war.
Time is not on the Jewish/Zionist side, for they must deal with Iran, break apart Russia and then be free to finally deal with China, who would then be isolated and made to kneel to the ‘chosen ones’.
This is why these nefarious folks hate Putin so much. Because he came and rained on their party. Just in time too.
This said criminal, genocidal syndicate are merely bluffing, but then again, world history has taught us that they nearly always over-extend themselves and major war, death and destruction almost always occurs to stop their inherently racist , supremacist, ideological quest for domination of us all.
Astute people all over the world know who the trouble makers are. So its ridiculous to think that Putin, Xi, Rouhani , Maduro, Nasrallah, Kim, et al don’t know that this international Jewish/Zionist syndicate is behind all the strife, war, poverty and unnecessary human death, misery and suffering.
The Russians and Chinese are making all the necessary plans and moves are being made. You see, Russians and Chinese, along with Iranians are usually quite, calculating and cunning.
The Jews, yes, I said it, Jews…are very arrogant. Its their trademark. Thus when on the high horse, they have a long distance to fall. This has happened over and over again in world history. They never fail to bring the ire and vengeance of humanity down upon themselves, then whine . As always eternal whiners, because they cant have their way.
When one considers other humans as mere beasts at best, its easy to start war, genocide and ethnically cleanse.
These said diabolically inspired folk are the most clear, present, pressing and imminent danger to the human race and peace, prosperity on earth.
Or we can be patronizing and pretend we cant talk like this because its not appropriate or nice, or anti-Semitic (sic).
There is a solution. Do what the Byzantium empire did, but enact it strictly all over the world. The laws. 1- No Jews in government 2- No Jews in finance 3- No Jews in education.
Tough times call for tough measures. Its high time to ‘act the fool’ with these people.
“There is a solution. Do what the Byzantium empire did, but enact it strictly all over the world. The laws. 1- No Jews in government 2- No Jews in finance 3- No Jews in education.”
4 – Do we give them Hollywierd? Maybe limit them to super hero fantasies? Kinda let them have their own comic book cult of superiority.
they don’t seem to have anything interesting to say despite all the $$ Hollywood has. Compared to French or Argentinian movies (which usually have something interesting to say), Hollywood movies are made top down- with neither an interesting story to tell nor any actors/writers who have lived sufficiently interesting/authentic lives to be able to convey anything authentic. So they just add ‘celebrities’ they manufacture, lots of expensive cars, special effects etc – but the story is still not there so such crap is painful to watch. I saw a movie few days ago while flying to Buenos Aires (Snatched – with Goldie Hown- it was completely crap, boring, fake…like most other Hollywood movies these days.
Actually, most French movies these days seem to be partly financed by the EU one way or another. In order to get this money, the film-maker has to promote one of these themes:
1- The suffering of Jews in occupied Europe during WW2 – without ever mentioning that the British and Americans did not want to accept them as immigrants.
2- The heroism of the refugees who cross the Mediterranean and seek lowly jobs in the EU.
3- Alternative (i.e. gay) lifestyles and the suffering of these unfortunates.
In Australia, we can watch for free on SBS movies which come from the EU and these themes dominate.
“European Commission. Supporting and promoting Europe’s audiovisual sector”
You will find that the same policies apply to subsidies to movies from all over the EU.
I’m all for vigilance.
One of the things to be vigilant about is a bully puffing his chest out and swinging “a big dick”. Or nuclear or financial blackmail “club”.
Pepe and most everyone here is alert to that situation, and not taking it lightly. So far, so good.
Another thing to be vigilant about is the assumption that you or I or Trump or Putin or Xi individually are all good or all bad.
To varying degreesPutin and X and even Trump have good in them. None are completely free to act like perfect little gods. All have rich and powerful people inside and outside their nations that constrain their actions. All are dealing with cultures and ways of thinking inside and outside of their nations that are both beautiful and flawed.
The same goes for each of us. Including in regard to our capacities of assessing Trump’s UN speech. Those alert on the vigilance of bullying and fearmongering may not be so alert in making sure they don’t miss something possibly MORE IMPORTANT than North Korea (which actually includes North Korea!!!) in what Trump said:
“If we are to embrace the opportunities of the future and overcome the present dangers together, there can be no substitute for strong, sovereign, and independent nations — nations that are rooted in their histories and invested in their destinies; nations that seek allies to befriend, not enemies to conquer; and most important of all, nations that are home to patriots, to men and women who are willing to sacrifice for their countries, their fellow citizens, and for all that is best in the human spirit.”
Now, many of you, anxious to get to the nitty gritty of threatening bullies and psychopathy therein (more so in the neocons you are convinced have captured The Donald 100%) probably react to the above paragraph LIKE A NEOCON:
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! Yada yada yada yada!!! Fluff! Filler!! NO ADRENALINE THERE! Yawn. Now, let’s get REAL: Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!,
More emotional and intellectual subtlety, please.
Of the sort that jiri provides in his short but apt (IMHO) insight a few comments up:
jiri: “My theory is that Trump made an over the top speech in order to throw off the warmongers in Washington.”
The vigilance of gross mind control bludgeoning is apt.
But so is the vigilance to catch the subtleties and implications in that paragraph of Trump’s speech others (including I…..and maybe jiri??) noticed and regard as equally if not MORE important than the part about North Korea that EVERYONE noticed, like spectators in a stupid rigged piece of theater called “professional wrestling” ……or “Politics for Dummies”.
I believe we all agree that the fairly single-minded group of Geo-Political advisers surrounding Trump never will be beneficiary for the inhabitants of this planet.
Unknown to most, is the two individuals (hardly ever seen in public) that has the utmost influence on Mr. Trump’s foreign policy.
Here they are.

It all makes sense now, doesn’t it??
The horrible rhetoric from North Korea wrecks the situation. USA has obligations with Japan. Sorry, but North Korea needs to be tamed!
Mr. Escobar, firstly, the Joint Committee met in Vienna in July 2017, and certified Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA. The Joint Committee is: the EU, Germany, France, England, Russia, China, and The United States. The second mechanism is the UN Security Council. A member of the Joint Committee may notify the Security Council that Iran is in non-conpliance, following which a vote of the UNSC must be held to affirm continued relaxation of the various resolutions of sanctions. It must be remembered that part of the JCPOA has the IAEA report regularly and on request of the UNSC regarding Iran’s compliance, and the IAEA holds that Iran is in compliance. Therefore the only option for The Unites States is to inform the UNSC that Iran is in noncompliance and face a vote in the UNSC. Needless to say, after The United States has signed the Joint Committee statement this would put the US in an absurd position, up against the IAEA, France, Germany, England, Russia, and China. Of course, The United States could simply veto the resolution and the sanctions would be re-imposed, but that would mean Iran could go ahead and build a nuclear device, and The United States would not only look doubly absurd but be a world pariah.
The incoming joint manoeuvers in the Brazilian-Peruvian-Colombian tri-border area are small scale exercises that cannot be seen as a real move against Venezuela, for the simple reason that any kind of aggression against this country, even – and specially – by the US armed forces, would entail an immediate gathering of most of the currently infighting Venezuelan parties against the invaders (and the Bolivarian militias are indeed a force to be reckoned with). Not to mention an automatic reaction from all South American countries, their internal troubles and relations to Venezuela notwithstanding.
