Not Good — Trump Warns of “A Major, Major Conflict with N. Korea. Absolutely”


(Matt Agorist) For more than a decade, North Korea has been unsuccessfully attempting to prove its military might to the world through a series of failed missile launches, nuclear proliferation, and threats to anyone who attempts to come near their border. And for more than half a century, the US has enabled it. In spite of threatening nuclear war on the world, most countries have never acted. However, the Trump administration appears to want to change that.

In 2003, North Korea withdrew from the Non-Proliferation Treaty and began acquiring weapons-grade plutonium. In spite of this move, even warmongering George W. Bush never brought military action against North Korea to the point that it’s at now.

As each year passed, North Korea continued to unsuccessfully launch missile tests, make threats, and claim to be able to attack America. But that never happened.

However, fast forward to 2017, with VP and notorious neocon, Mike Pence at the helm, and all that changes as the US military are now being maneuvered in such a way as to provoke the tyrannical regime.

“Storm clouds gather on the horizon…..North Korea is the most dangerous and urgent threat to the peace and security of the Asia-Pacific,” Pence said last week as he addressed the military in a manner in which no VP has ever done.

Just to put North Korea into perspective, here are a few details. The socialist dictatorship is roughly the same size as Pennsylvania. Its Gross Domestic Product, however, is less than half that of Mississippi — the poorest state in the US.

It’s important to point out, though, that as the US saber rattling increases, so does the proliferation of Kim Jong Un’s nuclear arsenal.

The idea that this regime could sustain a conflict against the US, Japan, South Korea, and possibly China, is inconceivable. However, there is a very real threat from even one nuclear missile being launched, and diplomacy should be at the very forefront of all approaches to avoid such a disastrous outcome.

But, with Pence leading the way and the war hawks in the deep state puppeteering Trump, diplomacy is increasingly looking like a fleeting memory.

“As President Trump has made clear to the world, the era of strategic patience is over,” Pence declared last week.

And now,

this week, the threats of provocation and war are even more grave.

In an exclusive interview about his first 100 days in office, President Trump told Reuters that he’d like to use diplomacy but that it doesn’t seem like it will happen.

“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely,” Trump told Reuters in the interview.

“We’d love to solve things diplomatically but it’s very difficult,” he said.




This ominous warning comes after decades of US meddling in the region. The fact is that we had no business jumping into a conflict between two dictatorships in 1950 and we have no business there now. What’s more, it’s our very presence in the region that has fostered and provoked the situation in which we find ourselves today.

As David Stockman points out for the Ron Paul Institute:
The fact is, the seven decade confrontation on the 38th parallel is an artifact of empire, not a necessity of homeland security. It is the handiwork of a Warfare State served by a permanent political class that derives its power, purpose and resources from the faithful pursuit and stewardship of an American Imperium.

Stated differently, American soldiers are provocatively stationed on the 38th parallel—where on the other side of the line they have kept the Kim family tyranny in business for seven decades—-because Imperial Washington, like Rome, needs purportedly imperiled frontiers to justify its rule and heavy draft of military and economic resources.
Now, instead of realizing this series of brutally ignorant mistakes, which could lead to a nuclear war, and correcting them, the Trump administration seems hellbent on bringing it to a head.
