26 May 2018. Trump Lies About American Military “Power”

Russian and Chinese troops at a joint exercise… the USA is overmatched and outgunned… why does Trump boast so?

March of the Volunteers (English subs)


Trump boasted about American military “power”. That’s a lie, especially, in the Korean context. The PRC backs the DPRK… the PRC has the largest army in the world, over three times the size of the US ground forces (USMC and US Army combined). In 1950, the Chinese Peoples Volunteers whipped the racist Anglos and their ROK accomplices. China accepted the human cost involved in fighting an opponent with more firepower then they had. However, China had better infantry, skilled in infiltration and night attacks, with the motivation of defending the motherland (the DPRK IS next-door to the PRC). Today, the Chinese troops are as skilled and motivated as their grandfathers were, and they’re far better equipped than the 1950 force that kicked the shit out of the Americans. China would deploy a modern mechanised force to repel an American invasion of the DPRK. That is, the Yanks would be on the receiving end of artillery, MRLs, and airstrikes… all of which they haven’t had to deal with in their dirty little imperial wars.

The USA is overextended and has no forces to spare, yet, Trump issues bombastic threats. Trust me, it doesn’t impress Xi, Putin, or Rouhani. The danger is that Trump could order a military action in an attempt to rescue Republican chances in November. There’s nothing in the cupboard… nothing but some understrength and not fully equipped reserve forces that really aren’t ready for the big time. Imperial adventures bog down US forces in Afghanistan and the Middle East, with further troops tied down in Europe… along with penny-packets scattered in Africa and Latin America. Trump can’t withdraw anything and he’s stuck like a fly in a spider web. Russia and Iran are peer forces, which means that the USA has to keep its troops in Europe and the Middle East at current levels. Trump has no conventional forces to apply.  That makes the danger of Trump using nukes too high for comfort. God willing, Mattis and the generals will keep Pompeo, Haspel, and Bolton in check (the generals aren’t as anywhere near as hot for war as the political figures are). If not, we’re in the deep kimchi and no one knows how that’d end. We’re all stuck on the rollercoaster and a smirking and impulsive juvenile has the controls.

6 May 2013. A Picture of the Nefarious DPRK… Watch Out for the Kid with the Balloon!

00 DPRK. Korea. Pyongyang Metro. 06.05.13


This is a family on the Pyongyang Metro… the image was taken by Russian tourists. It sure doesn’t look like the shit peddled by Washington, Langley, the Washington Times, and Fox News… what’s the kid gonna do? Hide a bomb in the balloon? Let’s keep it simple… the leadership of the DPRK noticed that the Americans leave people with “the bomb” alone. Ergo, they built some bombs. Look, the DPRK doesn’t have the industrial or financial oomph to build more than a few weapons. However, that’s all that they need. The Americans don’t want a nuke coming down on one of their bases in Japan or the ROK… and there’s no practical defence against modern MRBMs.

America is doing its best to demonise the DPRK. It’s not getting ready to go to war… however, can we say the same of Washington? After all, the corporate oligarchy’s failing, and wars in foreign parts are a classic dodge of clueless ruling classes. It’s a dangerous time… on the banks of the Potomac, not the Korean peninsula. Jim de Mint, one of the most feral of the American Right, recently resigned his Senate seat, commenting that the GOP couldn’t count on “angry white men” for much longer. That means that the Right’s in the deep kimchi… that’s dangerous. They won’t shuffle off quietly into the dark night. They’re the rouges, not the DPRK… God do help us.

In late March, the DPRK said that relations between the two Koreas are now on a “war footing”, and Pyongyang would react accordingly in the case of “hostile provocation”, which could escalate into war… even a nuclear one. In early March, the DPRK protested against the holding of joint American/ROK military exercises, saying that it cancelled all agreements with the ROK on nonaggression and denuclearisation, and terminated the Armistice Agreement signed to end the Korean War. Besides that, the DPRK threatened to launch a nuclear attack on the USA.

What’s behind it all… a possible war on the Korean peninsula, its probable origins, and what are its possible consequences? It might look like a conflict between the DPRK and the ROK, but what positions might the USA, China, and Russia take in the event of such an eventuality?
