Hillary Clinton was trotted out by the global elite today with task in-hand — war with the authoritarian state of North Korea.
“U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that North Korea’s sinking of a South Korean warship has created a ‘highly precarious’ security situation in the region and that the Obama administration is working to prevent an escalation of tension that could lead to conflict,” reports the Associated Press. “We are working hard to avoid an escalation of belligerence and provocation,” Clinton said. “This is a highly precarious situation that the North Koreans have caused in the region.”
Back in March, when the 1,200 ton corvette Cheonan sank in the Yellow Sea, there was scant evidence North Korea had anything to do with the disaster.
“Initial reports of the sinking had provoked fears that North Korea had attacked the ship, possibly with a torpedo, however South Korean military authorities have now said there is no evidence so far that North Korean forces were to blame,” the Daily Telegraph reported on March 27. “Speculation is now turning to the possibility that the Cheonan, which would have been carrying torpedos, suffered an accident or had perhaps struck a sea mine that had broken free from its mooring.”
In order to blame North Korea and set the stage for the possibility of a war that will conveniently displace the daily horror show of the engineered global economic implosion, a “joint civilian-military investigation group” of military and civilian experts was cobbled together.
“Investigators on Thursday presented fragments of a torpedo, which they said sank the vessel on the night of March 26 near the disputed West Sea maritime border between the two Koreas,” CNSNews reported on May 20. “The evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that the torpedo was fired by a North Korean submarine,” said Yoon Duk-yong, co-chairman of the joint investigation team. “There is no other plausible explanation,” he added.
On cue the script-reading corporate media chanted the mantra that the evil North Koreans had sunk the military ship and wantonly killed South Korean sailors, thus attempting to rationalize the mass murder that may or may not soon unfold.
Lew Rockwell hit the nail square on the head. “In the most recent Korean incident, did the North’s navy sink a ship of the South’s navy? Only one thing is for sure: it is none of the US’s business, which should immediately end its long occupation of the South,” he writes. “But since the empire seeks to rule the world and beyond, everything is its business, and it looks as if the chickenhawk Obama may be about to launch a second Korean war.”
Naturally almost the entire nation is under a government and corporate media induced voodoo trance on the stage-managed issue. According to the official version of history, North Korea crossed the border at the 38th Parallel and mercilessly attacked South Korea as reunification negotiations were underway. The Chinese and Soviets supported North Korea and the United States and the United Nations supported South Korea.
Establishment historians mark the Korean War as the first significant armed conflict of the Cold War. Nearly a million and a half people lost their lives, including more than 55,000 U.S. soldiers.
Establishment history books omit a few inconvenient facts about the Korean War. As early as 1949, South Korean troops were launching incursions into North Korea, actions that ultimately led to the support from communist China and the Soviet Union. President Harry Truman’s secretary of state, Dean Acheson, announced in 1950 that the United States had little interest in Korea because the country had no geopolitical significance and yet John Foster Dulles is said to have worked behind the scenes with the leaders of Taiwan, South Korea and the U.S. military-industrial complex to set the stage for war.
As the Col. L Fletcher Prouty documents, the Cold War was a wholly manufactured phenomenon. Prouty was an insider who spent nine of his 23 year military career in the Pentagon — including a stint as a liaison officer between the CIA and the Air Force for Clandestine Operations — and wrote two books detailing how the elite systematically plan and execute wars and conflicts around the world. “The Grand Strategy decision to create a new bipolar world had already been made in 1944-45,” writes Prouty in JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy (p. 12).
British researcher and author Atony Sutton has documented how the global elite financed and supported the Soviet Union from its inception and provided the communists with military assistance (see Sutton’s The Best Enemy Money Can Buy). “The United States financed the economic and military development of the Soviet Union. Without this aid, financed by U.S. taxpayers, there would be no significant Soviet military threat, for there would be no Soviet economy to support the Soviet military machine, let alone sophisticated military equipment,” Sutton wrote in 1986 before the planned implosion of the Soviet Union.
“It is not much of an exaggeration to say that the U.S.S.R. was made in the U.S.A.,” notes Gary Allen. “Remember that for over 150 years it has been standard operating procedure of the Rothschilds and their allies to control both sides of every conflict. You must have an ‘enemy’ if you are going to collect from the King.”
It helps, as well, to have “enemy” that you admire, as David Rockefeller admires communism, specifically the murderous version created by Mao. “Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history,” Rockefeller told the New York Times on August 10, 1973.
“In Korea we have direct killing of Americans with Soviet weapons,” Sutton writes in the concluding chapter of his book. “The 130,000-man North Korean Army, which crossed the South Korean border in June 1950, was trained, supported, and equipped by the Soviet Union.” Soviet tanks with U.S. parts, artillery tractors that were direct metric copies of Caterpillar tractors, trucks from a Henry Ford-Gorki plant in Russia, and airplanes built in plants with U.S. Lend-Lease equipment were used to kill U.S. soldiers in Korea.
Nearly two decades later, the U.S. would still be selling military technology to the Soviets. “Who were the government officials responsible for this transfer of known military technology? The concept originally came from National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger,” writes Sutton. Kissinger was (and is) “a paid family employee of the Rockefellers since 1958 and has served as International Advisory Committee Chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, a Rockefeller concern.”
In regard to North Korea’s nuclear threat, this too was made in the U.S.A. Donald Rumsfeld, the former U.S. Secretary of Defense and high-level globalist operative, made it possible for North Korea to possess nuclear technology.
In early 2000, Rumsfeld was involved with Swiss-based ABB when the company secured a $200 million contract with Pyongyang. The ABB contract was to deliver equipment and services for two nuclear power stations at Kumho on the North Korean east coast. The ABB contract followed a 1994 deal between the U.S. and North Korea allowing construction of two reactors in exchange for a freeze on Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program, a deal North Korea subsequently violated (or so we are told) as it continued to develop a nuclear weapons program.
North Korea initiated a missile program in the early 1960s with the assistance of China and the Soviet Union, that is to say with technology introduced by the United States, as Sutton has documented. Thousands of missiles are currently aimed at Seoul, the capital of South Korea.
North Korea, under the authoritarian cult of personality leadership of the psychotic Kim Jong-il, has vowed to unleash these missiles and his military machine against South Korea if it retaliates for the sinking of the Cheonan. “If (South Korea) tries to deal any retaliation or punishment, or if they try sanctions or a strike on us … we will answer to this with all-out war,” North Korean naval spokesman Col. Pak In Ho warned on Thursday.
“The U.S. and South Korean militaries will undergo two new training exercises in light of last week’s finding that North Korea sank a South Korean navy ship, killing 46 sailors, a Pentagon spokesman announced today,” the American Forces Press Service has announced. “Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, on a pre-arranged diplomatic trip to Asia, today said U.S. and South Korean military leaders are working closely to ensure readiness in the region,” in other words possibly preparing for armed conflict.
“President Obama has directed his military commanders to coordinate closely with their Korean counterparts to ensure readiness and to deter future aggression,” Clinton said. “As part of our ongoing dialogue, we will explore further enhancements to our joint posture on the peninsula.”
In remains to be seen if these “further enhancements,” coupled with North Korea’s avowed declaration of “all-out war” in response, will result in hostilities.
If war ensues, not only will Lindsay Lohan be swept off the front page, but so will the economic crisis that is bearing down menacingly on the world with each passing day.
