Russia and China Versus the West on North Korea

By Stephen Lendman, September 05, 2017

Russia and China urge diplomacy to resolve a deepening crisis. They want tensions defused.

 The Need for US-North Korea Peace Talks: Jimmy Carter. “They Want a Peace Treaty to Replace the [1953] Ceasefire”

By Jimmy Carter, September 05, 2017

During all these visits, the North Koreans emphasized that they wanted peaceful relations with the United States and their neighbors, but were convinced that we planned a preemptive military strike against their country. They wanted a peace treaty (especially with America) to replace the ceasefire agreement that had existed since the end of the Korean War in 1953, and to end the economic sanctions that had been very damaging to them during that long interim period.

The Beggars for War: The US, North Korea and Bankruptcy

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark, September 05, 2017

The method of forcibly starving a country of its oil and other necessaries has a good precedent for encouraging, rather than discouraging war. The United States was very much in the position of provoking conflict when it came to dealing with Japan in 1941. The rhyme of history is a strong one.

The People of North Korea. Vilified Nation, What is the Truth

By Eva Bartlett, September 05, 2017

Pyongyang, and much of North Korea, was leveled in the 50s by US bombings, with reportedly just one or two low-level buildings standing. After destroying and murdering in DPRK, America slapped sanctions on the country. How the people have continued, and made huge advances, is worthy of respect.

By Patrick Henningsen, September 05, 2017

This wouldn’t be the first time North Korea exaggerated its WMD credentials. Last January they exaggerated claims of a successful ‘H-bomb’ test. Despite their dodgy record, the western media, and politicians who are fed by defense contracts – are lapping up Pyongyang’s latest pig’s breakfast.

What the Media Isn’t Telling You About North Korea’s Missile Tests. The DPRK has No Plans to Nuke the West

By Mike Whitney, September 05, 2017

What the media failed to mention was that,  for the last three weeks, Japan, South Korea and the US have been engaged in large-scale joint-military drills on Hokkaido Island and in South Korea. These needlessly provocative war games are designed to simulate an invasion of North Korea and a “decapitation” operation to remove (Re: Kill)  the regime.

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, September 04, 2017 

Annihilation was the objective of the Korean war (1950-53). and “Mad Dog” James Mattis was responsible for the annihilation of Fallujah (Iraq)  in 2004. 

“Mutually Assured Destruction” (MAD): Deterrence Believers Should Cheer the North Korean Bomb

By Craig Murray, September 05, 2017

How did we get here? In the 1950s the USA dropped 635,000 tonnes of bombs on North Korea including 35,000 tonnes of napalm. The US killed an estimated 20% of the North Korean population. For comparison, approximately 2% of the UK population was killed during World War II.
