US and Europe Conceal Their Bankruptcy with Hostility to Russia

The real threat to the world is economic collapse and poverty.

Without any solutions and in fact only exacerbating these problems, the US and European leaders are hiding behind a false agenda of non-issues, such as security, and in particular alleged «Russian aggression».

US President Obama was joined by European leaders last weekend in trying to turn the G20 summit in Australia into a forum for baiting Russia, rather than dealing with the more onerous problem of a failing world economy.

Korea and US to Host Largest Military Exercise in History: Simulation of NK Invasion

The South Korean military began its annual war exercise involving all branches of service on Monday to bolster its defense posture against potential threats from North Korea, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.

This year’s 12-day Hoguk exercise involving the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps “will focus on ways to establish supreme military defense capabilities against (North Korea’s) possible regional provocations and all-out war,” the JCS said in a statement.

The exercise was to be conducted across the nation, the JCS said, adding that the programs include joint landing drills, maritime infiltration defense drills and those to defend the northwestern islands on the Yellow Sea. Some U.S. military forces will also join some of the drills, according to the JCS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

300,000 military in a drill that will last about two weeks?!?

This is very, very significant; and the larger, and longer, an exercise like this takes place, the larger the chance of some error, "accidentally" triggering a North Korean military response, and Chinese involvement on the North Korean side.

North Korea to Bar Foreign Tourists Over Ebola Fears

North Korea has announced that it will not accept any foreign tourists beginning Friday because of fear of the Ebola virus, three agencies that take tourists to the isolated country said on Thursday.

The news came as the country said it was stepping up inspections and quarantine measures at its airport, borders and ports to guard against the spread of the deadly virus, which has killed thousands of people in the latest outbreak.

“Three days ago, they said that anybody who’s been to West Africa would have to provide a doctor’s certificate stating that they don’t have Ebola,” said Gareth Johnson of Young Pioneer Tours, a travel operator based in China. “And then today, they just said no foreign tourists at all.”

S. Korea deploys more weapons to border regions to deter N. Korea

The South Korean military said Monday it has deployed additional weapons to islands near the tense western maritime border to better deal with North Korea’s growing threats.

The disputed sea border remains a powder keg with the two Koreas fighting bloody battles there in 1999, 2002 and 2009. In the latest incident, both sides briefly exchanged fire last week as a boat from the North violated the Northern Limit Line (NLL).

Drawn by the U.S.-led United Nations Command at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War, the NLL acts as the de facto sea border between the two Koreas, but Pyongyang does not recognize the border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that cooler heads on both sides of the DMZ will prevail, and that they will take every step possible to ratchet down tensions here.

The American Establishment Combats Resurgent “Isolationist” Threat

It had become apparent in 2013 that the American people had grown averse to America’s involvement in wars, and this was given empirical confirmation by a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center in November 2013, which revealed that 51 percent of Americans believed that their country’s military involvement was excessive.[1] Once again the bugaboo of isolationism entered the mainstream spotlight, the derogatory label being attached to those who would like to cut back America’s global intervention.[2] Opposition to the alleged resurgent isolationism united all sectors of the mainstream establishment–liberals, moderates, and conservatives, the ultra-interventionist neoconservatives and the more moderate traditional foreign policy establishment.

US, South Korea to create a combined army unit to destroy North Korea’s nukes

South Korea said Thursday it would create a combined army unit with the United States, reportedly tasked with destroying North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction in the event of an all-out conflict.

The mechanised unit led by a US major general will be set up in the first half of next year, the South’s defence ministry said, as part of elaborate preparations for any future war between the two Koreas.

“It will be the first combined ‘field combat’ unit to carry out wartime operations,” a defence ministry spokesman said without elaborating on its mission.

If war breaks out, the unit would be tasked with eliminating weapons of mass destruction in the nuclear-armed North, Yonhap news agency said.

The contingent would have a joint office of US and South Korean staff in Uijeongbu, north of Seoul, where the US 2nd Infantry Division guards a strategically important area as a deterrent to an invasion by North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could South Korea and the US government POSSIBLY telegraph, more loudly, that they are looking at starting a war with North Korea next year?!?!?

This very public announcement will NOT ratchet down tensions on the Korean peninsula at all.

I am reposting Claire's video as the US invades Iraq for the third time, Kiev fakes an invasion by Russia, Libya's US puppet rules are driven from office, and a new flood of TV commercials hits the corporate media networks reminding all 18 year-olds that they MUST register for selective service.

Kyrie Eleison - Anti-War Music Video - CLAIRE K. RIVERO

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting Claire's video for two reasons. First, this is a message that needs to get out to the world about how war is cilling innocent children.

Second, the latest revelations from Edward Snowden include confirmation that the NSA "tinkers" with view counts on YouTube videos to keep videos contrary to the war agenda from going viral.

Fuckers!
