The deep purpose of our approach with North Korea
may be to cause a small nuclear war that will
deter the economic expansion of China.
It has been argued that WWI & WWII were permitted, even encouraged to occur, by those “powerful forces” who would gain from the war; and who would not be effected by the losses. There are those who gain from every war, and would do so again, even considering the losses of others. For some, war is a tool.
Perpetrators of False Flag actions bear the cost, but they are done for a much greater gain – for themselves.
China’s global economic expansion may fail, and internally China may collapse. China’s political/economic systems are different, but not necessarily better (in the long run) or worse than the USA’s systems. China and the USA will be in greater and greater competition.
A limited nuclear exchange, wiping out both Koreas, would be like a global 9/11 False Flag. Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) kept the nukes at bay during the cold war. Talk by some of the Deep State planning preemptive nuclear attacks on Russia (and China) is mad, and conflicts the the logic of MAD. MAD would avoid a nuclear holocaust after the destruction of The Koreas (and possibly some of Japan). Even a nuke attack on one USA city would be “worth the cost” of preserving USA dollar hegemony.
Trump’s rants against North Korea are playing into this game, but Trump is not the architect and may not be in on the intent. Who are Trump’s real handlers, that is the primary question? North Korea won’t start it – their actions are strictly defensive, via MAD. A false flag event, blamed on NK, would be an excuse to attack them, and NK would return fire, destroying SK.
The primary purpose of this would be the destabilization of China, blocking China’s further globalization and forcing China to withdraw from many of their global adventures. MAD would keep China and the USA from exchanging nukes. Specifically how this would weaken China remains the weak link in this speculative scenario. Radioactive fallout on China might be catastrophic and might trigger internal revolts.
This plot may not be fully successful for the plotters in the USA. But, in their limited ideological thinking, they may not anticipate failure.
In the late 1950s, I published an article in The Minority of One journal, titled: “War with China, Now or Later?” This was my take on the USA’s increasing interest in SE Asia (before the official start of The Vietnam War). I was wrong, then. I hope I am wrong now.
A False Flag Happening Elevates Trump to “Dictator”.
The Donald will not be in on the planning, but may be informed of it shortly before it happens. The Donald is but a tool of his handlers (who are NOT most of those around him in the WH and DC). The Donald will be a figure head (to keep his large base active). He will continue to be disruptive, so long as his disruptions enable his handlers to do as they had planned. When The Donald is of no more use to his handlers he will be “removed” in a way that will not anger his diehard supporters.
Pundits, of the political spectrum from Alt-Right to Progressive, all think in the context of continuing processes within the current institutional systems of the USA, with some variations. Today, the “talk” is about GOP challengers to Trump in 2020. I can’t imagine Trump remaining POTUS nearly that long. How he leaves or is removed, has many options. Nor, will (weak) hopes that “all will return to normal” likely to happen.
The FRAGMENTATION (well beyond polarization), reinforced by the siloing potential of the new media, is destined to continue. Many talk about expecting “things happening”, where there are no longer
mechanisms/process/structures needed for those things to happen.
Pundits focus on the polls that ONLY 1/3 of Americans STRONGLY support Trump. I wager very, very few of polled encounter negative information about Trump that they don’t immediately classify as fake or fraud. 1/3 ideologically blind followers is a SCARY FORCE. The militias and the emergent Alt-Right organizations are there to organize and train the “new troops”. I expect there are already systems to organize this 1/3 into a revolutionary force, should Trump be impeached or assassinated, or other wise removed from office. They may have local and state police forces behind them. The military will be divided. The USA, as we know it, will cease to exist. Much is already gone.
We cannot assume that Mueller’s Investigation, or the congressional investigations will eventually remove Trump, or that the GOP will lose control in the next elections. There are no hard and fast rules, anymore. The courts are rapidly being packed. What might be the consequences of a cyber attack shutting down our electrical grid? Could Trump (and handlers) be stopped declaring an emergency and assuming top executive powers? There is nothing in our Constitution for “Restarting America”.
It is now clear the the 911 downing of the twin towers catalyzed the many changes in the USA since. If one examines ALL the reports about 911, there can be only one conclusion: it was a False Flag to produce the changes in the USA that followed. The details of the “plotters and players” have yet to be worked out. The plotters weren’t any formal parts of the USA; thus not an “inside job”, in the normal sense. But, persons who worked in USA orgs were part of the plot, as well as global participation. The coverup was part of the plot. Many of these persons are still alive, and their conspiratorial organizations still in existence. However, the current “plotters and players” remains unknown – related to the neocons and neoliberals. A competitive “plotters & players”, behind The Trump Phenomenon, may be [BRICS+] .
WHEN? Any time. As long as the plot is “winning” (according to their expectations) the false flag event will probably be delayed. An approaching impeachment might or might not trigger the false flag. It depends on Pence and other criteria – such as how the military and intelligence agencies would “swing”. They could live with, even benefit from another 911. What is coming is too uncertain. There would be parts of the military and agencies that would resist.
I don’t know how Pence and most of the GOP fit into this story. Pence may be made an offer he couldn’t refuse.
WILD CARD. The military execute a peaceful coup and organize a new election.
Climate Change Denial (CCD)
is more dangerous than Nazis, Mafias, Serial Killers
for the WHOLE OF HUMANKIND.
Climate Change Denial quite literally threatens the future life of humanity and is ensuring massive suffering. The behavior of human backers of CCD (Deniers, persons who participate in the societal phenomenon: Denial) may be more “civil” and less “crude” than the “evil killers of persons” of the past. Indeed, “civilization” depends on the “civility” of elite leaders in their cooperation and coordination in suppressing and exploiting “the masses”. Yet, assassinations and coups were frequent.
CCD KILLS POPULATIONS.
CCD makes populations suffer.
CCD denies humankind
the THRIVAL it has earned.
Populations rose up to defend themselves against viscous enemies before. Why are those who fear the catastrophic effects of Climate Change so damn passive? And, here I include myself.
I treat DEATH, my own and that of most others, as NOT EMOTIONALLY REAL. The threat is not immediate – except for those trapped in disasters, but they experience a flood. No one EXPERIENCES Climate Change. Climate Change – as a long-term PROCESS – cannot be EXPERIENCED.
If CCD hadn’t existed, and humankind had begun taking measures a few decades ago (when CC became a scientific reality) MANY deaths would have been avoided, many trillions of dollars saved, many disasters lessened, fewer displaced persons, and probably a more peaceful planet. Life would still be a major challenge.
Climate Change isn’t the kind of phenomenon that directly “causes” specific happenings, such as floods. Floods and CC are different classes of phenomena. But, CCD and the collective impact of CC on Earth are of the same class. CCD is the cause of many human deaths, much human suffering, great economic loss, tragic environmental destruction and literally threatens the extinction of humankind.
We have the obligation to STOP CCD in its track, with any viable means. How, is our challenge. NOTE: this is distinct from stopping CC and recovering. This is a human-human challenge, with the same seriousness as if your house were invaded by ISIS recruits or you were kidnapped for ransom.
These are not evil persons; but they commit evil acts. They must be stopped, but not with vengeance or hatred. Every human behaves consistent with their experienced wrld, and believe their actions are justified. White supremacists believe in their “scientific evidence” for the inferiority of non-white “races”and feel justified defending themselves. Climate Change Deniers experience wrlds where their “evidence” confirms that Climate Change Activists are part of a deep plot, and it is their obligation to defend their world against these hoaxers.
