Has nuclear missiles. Will use them.

That’s bottom line.

North Korea has 70 submarines. Most of them are antiques but a few, according to news report, may be capable of launching missiles equipped with nuclear war heads. There is no doubt that they pose considerable threat to South Korea and Japan. Some may cruise along the west coast of the U.S. as well.

And the U.S. too?

Two bullies with no brain between them is a very, very dangeous combination.  

I only wish cool heads prevail.

Beware taking on Kim’s death cult

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4403418/Beware-taking-Kim-s-death-cult-writes-MARK-SEDDON.html


Dangeous confrontation, unpredictable outcome and deadly results. 

One hardheaded egomaniac with no foreign policy experience who back tracks many of his campaign promises. 

One determines on taking over South Korea, hates Japanese, eliminates DMZ and has means to carry it out in short order.

DMZ, Seoul, Tokyo  and where else? How many submarines does North Korea have?

The worst possible combination forAmerican soldiers, Koreans, Japanese and people of the world.

Iran, are you watching what’s going on here in northeast Asia? Have you learned anything? You took a hit before, didn’t you?

The fisherman on the sideline benefits without doing a thing.

In Chinee, it means:

鷸蚌相争,魚翁得利。

Pictures are worth a thousand words. 

You’ll know who is the crane and who are the clams.
You’ll have to guess who the fisherman is.

The U.S. wants Assad out. America is building another nation. It just can’t stop messing around with other nation’s business, can it?

Trump apparently wants to start two regional wars, one chemical and one nuclear, at the same time. 

Now, how many Koreans are there in the United States and how many of them are from the North of the 38th parallel?

What will North Korea do? 

What will Trump do?

What will Russia do? Back to “Cold War” again?

Iran played Obama liked a clown July 18, 2015

Clinton, a democrat, kind of dispatched Carter, a democrat, to North Korea to negotiate a nuclear weapon freeze treaty with Kim Il Sung. After months of talk, North Korea and the U.S. signed a so-called Agreed Framework by which North Korea would freeze its nuclear weapon development program in exchange for aids. After Carter briefed Clinton on the agreement at the White House in 1994, Carter proudly declared: “I personally believe the crisis is over, and I personally believe Kim Il Sung wants to be sure that the crisis is over.” (Source: Los Angeles Times; June 20, 1994)

Practically, the minute Carter left Pyongyang, North Korea resumed its nuclear weapon development program and today North Korea is a nuclear nation with ballistic missile technology. South Korea, which is protected by U. S. troops, faces a real threat of total destruction from its neighbor to the north.

North Korea played Clinton and Carter like a pair of clowns.

Fast forward to 2015.

Obama, a democrat, dispatched Kelly, a democrat, to negotiate a nuclear weapon freeze treaty with Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani.

After months of negotiation, Kelly in March 2015 said that Iran and essentially the U.S. would sign a deal ‘inshallah” which was Arabic for “Allah willing.”

Source: Laura Rozen, http://www.teaparty.org/john-kerry-nuke-deal-iran-allah-wills-91978/

A few days ago, a deal between Iran and the United States was reached and the two nations will be friends again. Iran will stop the development of its nuclear weapon program in exchange for $150 billion of foreign assets frozen by the U.S. and its allies and other relieves most notably its export of crude oil to the world market. Iran is said to have to stop the program development for some 10 or few years and there will be no “anytime, anywhere” inspections because Kelly and Obama believe that this kind of inspection is not feasible. Iran can have weeks to prepare for IAEA inspection if Iran feels like it.

Things look real good, isn’t it?

But wait, Hassan Rouhani isn’t in charge. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is. Here is what Khamenei has to say about Iran’s dealing with the U.S.:

Obama wants a deal with Iran. He got a great one from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Obama wants a deal with Iran. He got a great one from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

I think Ayatollah Ali Khamenei played Obama and Kelly like a pair of clowns.

 

North Korea signed a deal with the U.S. in 1994. It took North Korea 8 years to become a nuclear nation.

Iran signed a deal with the U.S. in 2015. It will take Iran fewer than 8 years to develop a nuclear weapon unless Israel does something about it.

She wants to ‘empathize‘ and ‘show respect‘ to America’s enemies.

Let’s count American’s enemies for Hillary then:

China, Iran, Iraq, IS, Al Qaeda, Hezbolla, Hamas, Boko Haram, Mujahidin, PLO, Abu Nidal Organization, North Korea, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia, The Palestinian Authority, Israel, Yeman, Sudan, Egypt, Cuba, Venezuela and Bolivia. There are at least 20 other terrorist groups not named here. Chinese say: ‘族多不繁載也.’

Don’t believe my list? Check out Gallup poll done since 2001.

Hmmm…, many on the list want to kill Americans. Several have done so already. Some want to win the economic war against America. Several have been bombed by American fighters jets, drones and cruise missiles with thousands innocent civilians killed by American’s military machine. A few have long range nuclear missiles aimed at American cities. Several have been bullied by the US. A few more have been sanctioned by the US for years if not decades.

Let Hillary tell us how she empathizes these nations, organizations or groups?

She must feel sorry for these people because of American bulling over the decades in the past?

Because of America’s past misconduct, Hillary wants to respect people of
these nations and groups for what they stand for: kill American people?

I don’t know whom Hillary wants to please: tertorists or her liberal base in the US?

I don’t know what Hillary wants to do with her ’empathy’ and ‘respect’ when facing these people on the battle field: send them flowers or offer them her right cheek?

United State’s new enemy – China December 2, 2010

The American’s war machine under the Department of Defense (DOD) has found a new enemy because it has to justify its enormous budget of more than $700 billion every year.

Just about how big is American’s defense spending every year? How about 46% of the total defense spending in the world.

Of course, the new enemy is China via North Korea.

Now that American combat troops have left Iraq, the top brass in DOD looked around the world and didn’t like what they see in China because China is threatening US’s standing in the world even though China’s defense spending is about 1/10 to 1/8 of what US spends every year.

The DOD get together with the State Department and devise a plan to open a new battle ground to block the expansion of China along the Pacific Ocean and India Sea, stretching from South Korea all the way to India.

The United States conducted several naval exercises with Korea navy in Japan Sea and East China Sea after the sinking of Cheonan. The United States deployed aircraft carrier USS George Washington to Korea and threatened to conduct a naval exercise in Yellow Sea.

Due to the tension between North and South Korea and the threat projected from China, Japan also beg the United States to intervene.

Taiwan has long been willing to be a small pawn in the US-China competition and its president has elevated the rhetoric of begging US to sell more advanced attacking weapons to Taiwan. The US has long been using this as a bargaining chip in dealing with China for more than a decade now.

The State Department also look at other disputes in Asia and decided to  make new friends with Vietnam and India with high level visits by Clinton, Obama and battleship. Of course, the sole intention of their visits was to further isolate China.

The United States could not compete with China on foreign trades. China will not raise the value of Renminbi according to US’ terms and China owns a big chunk of American’s foreign debt. About the only things US can do is to show its military power in order to intimidate China and to put China in a corner with the help of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and India.

The line in the sand, or sea, has been drawn by the US against China. The US has started another war,albeit a cold war, to justify its defense spending.

Of course, China is not a 省油的灯 “sheng3 you1 de1 deng1,”

好戏还在后面呢。”hao3 xi4 hai2 zai4 hou4mian4 ne1。”

欲知后事如何,”yu4 zhi1 hou4 shi4 ru1 he1,”

请听下回分解。 “qing3 ting1 xia4 hui1 feng1 jie3。”

 

Second Cold War has Begun: U. S. vs China August 1, 2010

The United States has found a new enemy after Cold War with Soviet Union: China and it is doing all it can to block China’s expansion.

South Korea

The sinking of a South Korean warship has given the United States a perfect excuse to step up its military presence in Far East.

On the face, the target of the joint military exercise with South Korean around the South Korea Sea is Kim Jong-il of North Korea. But everyone knows that the primary target is China.

Japan

In addition to the closer ties with South Korea, the United States also found a perfect reason to keep its military bases in Okinawa despite objections from local residents stemming from among other reasons rapes of Japanese girls and killing of local residents by US soldiers. In the midst of this particular conflict, the obvious victim was the former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama who resigned because he broke his campaign promise of moving US air bases away from the Okinawa Island. Besides two air bases on Okinawa Island, the United States has three other air bases, two naval bases and an Marine base in other parts of Japan. Moreover, the Seventh Fleet of the United States is permanently stationed in Yokosuka including  50–60 ships, 350 aircraft and 60,000 Navy and Marine Corps personnel.

Taiwan

Although Taiwan under President Ma is making closer contacts on the economic front with China, the United states is not going to give up its friendly relationship with this island nation even though the US recognizes it as part of one China. In the end, I think the United States will sell F-16C/D fighter jets to Taiwan as a way to enhance the blockage of China on the eastern front. Although Taiwan becomes a pawn in this continuing struggle, the United States has an upper hand because Taiwan does not want to unify with China yet.

Southeast Asia

Diplomatically, Hillary Clinton last week visited Hanoi to attend a Ministerial meeting and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Regional Forum. This is the second time she has attended these meetings. Clinton said that the United States is committed to being an active partner in the region and advancing shared interests and values. The United States is looking into more opportunities to maintain a closer economic and if warranted military ties with Southeast Asian countries such as Philippines, Indonesia and four lower Mekong River countries: Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. Here, the potential sticky point is the development of South China Sea where exploration and production of hydrocarbon has created some hotly debate

Iraq and Afghanistan

The circle is almost complete with the American military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although Obama wants to reduce American’s troops in Afghanistan starting 2011, the fact of the matter is that the US will be there for a long time because Afghan is America’s second Vietnam.

Now that the US has shown its hands, the next move is China’s.

China’s Move

And I have no doubt that China will answer with further expanding its military power and continuing technology development in the ares of fighter jets and air carriers. At this moment, China is no match against the US militarily. However, China has money and the will to develop its military and space technology while the US is buried under back bending deficits and national debt. China’s economy is growing at 10% per year while the US is experiencing anemic recovery and nearly 17% unemployment rate.The United States has dismantled NASA and changed NASA’s mission to making Arabs happy while China is plotting to send a man to moon in 10 years’ time. The United States has put the Mars program on back burner but China is determined to make China a force to be reckoned with. As Chairman Mao famously declared 55 years ago that:

“我们不但要有更多的飞机大炮,而且还要有原子弹。 在今天这个世界上,我们要不受人家欺侮,就不能没有这个东西。

“Not only do we (China) need more air planes and artillery pieces, we also need the atomic bomb.” “In this world today, to avoid being bullied, we cannot be without it.”

Today, in the mind of current Chinese leaders, “这个东西” is space technology and a strong naval force: air carriers and submarines.

In ten years, China’s military force will still be no match to US’s military might. But China will make enough progress to challenge United States’ dominance.

The second Cold War has begun.

Double Standard June 23, 2010

Tony Hayward was criticized by the White House and liberal media  for attending a yacht race on Saturday because that damn hole wasn’t plugged.

Obama got a free pass from liberal media on his golf game on Saturday and Baseball game on Friday night. But on the day of “top kill”, Obama was implying that he was responsible for plugging that “damn hole.”

At last count, Obama also has the following thorny issues to deal with:

  • North Korea’s sinking of a South Korean battle ship.
  • Detection of high radiation levels of Uranium near the boarder of North Korea on May 15th, 2010.
  • Iran’s Nuclear weapon program.
  • Wars on Afghanistan and Iraq.
  • Domestic terrorist attack.
  • Gaza naval blockade by Israel.
  • Turkey turning its back on the U.S.
  • High unemployment rate.
  • Lousy economy.
  • Mounting deficits.
  • Soaring national debt.
  • Double dip on the housing market.
  • Arizona Illegal Immigrants law.
  • Cleaning up oil spills from beaches in LA, MS and FL.

Would you call that a “double standard?”
