Freedom of navigation a threat to who?
Who is afraid of Virgina Wolf, not the silly lamb of course. Who is afraid of lack of freedom of navigation in the South China Sea? China is the biggest trading nation in the world and should be the most afraid of lack of navigation. Would China impose restriction on freedom of navigation on others and affect is trade with the world and its reputation and its national interest? Only fools would cut their nose to spite their own face.
Why would China want to cause such friction and mess up its relations with its neighbours? Did China mess up its relations with the countries sharing common borders with China? No. China needs good relations with its neighbours to show to the world that it values peace and good relations with its neighbours and countries around the world. But the Empire, the ex colonial masters are conning their silly former colonies that they must fear China and not them, and the silly colonies believe in the lies.
Who is really afraid of freedom of navigation being curbed? Actually no one would do such a thing in this era. What would or could China do, or what would be the likelihood of China’s presence in the South China Sea? This is what the Americans are afraid of. Today, the Americans sail their navies all over the world to challenge and threaten countries it tagged as enemies or called Axis of Evil. What the Americans are afraid is that China would install military surveillance in the SCS, include anti carrier and naval ship missiles that would pose a threat to the Americans that till now, could do what it likes without being challenged and untouchable. With China’s military presence, the Americans would be watched, monitored and could be challenged and sunk if they misbehaved or tried to bully other countries.
Is this not good for small countries in the region? What have small countries got to fear when they are not in contention for military power and domination in the SCS? They are being silly to think that China would be bothered with their little warship in SCS. China only has eyes on the world hegemon , the warmonger in the USA that have been threatening every nation with their military power.
The Americans would not want China to be able to threaten their military. It could nothing to do with small nations. This is the crux of the problem on freedom of navigation. The freedom of navigation of American naval fleet, aircraft carriers, would be monitored and could be threatened by China’s anti ship missiles.
To the rest of the Asean nations, please, don’t think silly and think so highly of yourself, that China would be bothered with your little naval craft. China got no time for you. Do not fight the fight for the Americans. Freedom of navigation is between the big powers, between China and the Americans and other pretenders.
Go home and have a nice sleep and stop pretending that freedom of navigation in the SCS would affect you if you are a little nation. In fact China would court your friendship and would make things better for you to win your goodwill. China would protect and ensure freedom of navigation for everyone to promote trade and exchanges.
Stupidity cannot be cure.

Can misquoting or misrepresenting the UN to mislead be sued?

The western media have ceased to add the prefix of ÚN backed' to the Permanent Court of Arbitration or The Hague Tribunal. The PCA or The Hague Tribunal has always been referred to as such as what it should be rightfully called until the PCA acted on the farcical case of the Philippines in its claims on some South China Sea islands with China. The Aquino govt thought it was 'legally'a right thing to do, with the backings of the USA and Japan to force China to agree to an arbitration that China had the full right not to participate. The whole ordeal was as good as what you could get of a kangaroo court in action. But with a blank face, the western media intentionally added the prefix ÚN backed' when referring to The Hague Tribunal to deceive their readers that the PCA/Hague Tribunal was indeed a ÚN backed' institution when it was NOT. And everyone, including govts who are part of the conspiracy to fix China, would sing the same chorus, that the PCA/Hague Tribunal, was ÚN backed' and insisted that its nonsensical rulings were legal and binding and telling China to comply and abide by it.


Today, this farce has been exposed, and failing to convince the people of the world that the PCA/Hague Tribunal is a ÚN backed' organisation, they have all but dropped this pretence. Western media and those crony govts have stopped using the misleading prefix ÚN backed' when reporting and referring to the PCA/Hague Tribunal.


The question is why? Have they found out that the truth is that the PCA/Hague Tribunal was not UN backed? Or did they come to the realisation that their lies could not hold water, that no one believes in their lies and thus have to abandon telling the lies all over again?


Or has the UN stepped in to stop the western media and crony govts to stop using the prefix to mislead the people of the world or be sued by the UN for abusing the good name of the UN?



For those who are still confused, the simple point, the PCA/Hague Tribunal is an independent organisation that serves the interests of willing parties who voluntarily seek its assistance to arbitrate on their disagreements.



The PCA/Hague Tribunal is NOT a UN Backed organisation with the equivalent stature and authority as an UN organisation. Period. Its rulings are only legal and binding on the the willing parties that sought its arbitration and judgement.

Duterte telling Abe go fly kite
Abe went to the Philippines and wanted to sell submarines and missiles to Duterte. Yasay said the submarines too expensive and politely turned down the offer. Duterte simply told Abe no one is going to attack the Philippines. No need for the missiles. Philippines do not want a Third World War on its islands.
This is a piece of wisdom that Duterte could teach the rest of the stupid Asean countries. Why keep on buying weapons and pay hard currencies for war machine just because the Americans hyped that China and North Korea are going to attack them? The sillies and unthinking in little Red Dot believe in these threats whole heartedly and everyday worrying that China and North Korea are going to attack the Red Dot. Go look at all the countries neighbouring China, anyone worrying about China attacking them? The only country that is claiming that and building ICBMs is India, just like the West, hyping that China is planning to invade India when China was there and pulled back without staying a day longer after they defeated the Indian Army in the 1962 border war. What, China want to attack or invade India? What for?
This is the 21st Century. Conquering or invading another country is no longer acceptable, permissible or the thing to do. Colonialism is no longer feasible as the Americans have proven many times, that they could not conquer and rule a country by force anymore. But the Americans have not learnt their lessons well and still stationing Americans troops all over the world thinking of war.
Who would be the most likely aggressor country to conduct and engage in wars? China, Russia or America? Who have military bases and troops all over the world? The Americans have been accusing Russia, China and North Korea as the threat to peace when the real threat to world peace are the Americans. They are the trigger happy gangsters that have been engaging and still engaging in wars everywhere.
China going to attack Singapore, North Korea going to attack Singapore or the Philippines? Stupidity has no cure. Let Duterte teach them how to think clearly. Duterte is going to send all the American troops back to the USA. The American troops are in the Philippines to defend against who, or to hold on to the Philippines as a semi colony, like Japan and South Korea? Die die also would not leave.
The Americans are hyping all the threats to frighten the silly Asian countries to allow them to station their troops in their countries as semi colonies of the American Empire, to control them and to buy more American weapons. Can understand that?
Stupidity has no cure.
PS. The Philippines filed a mild protest to China for putting anti aircraft and anti missile weapons in the SCS islands. The Americans were hoping to drive a wedge in the warming relations between the Philippines and China. The Pinoys are not stupid. These are defensive weapons, not offensive weapons like aircraft carriers, tanks and nuclear bombers. They would only be used against anyone who intrudes into Chinese territorial waters to challenge the Chinese. And the likely intruders would be the Americans or maybe the Japs and the little sheriff in Australia.
The defensive weapons are not to attack the Philippines, but to defend Chinese islands. What is there to protest?

Tension rising again in the South China Sea
The devil would not go away. The Americans have returned with a nuclear powered aircraft carrier Carl Vinson to patrol the SCS as if it is their private swimming pool in the name of freedom of navigation. China has stood firm and warned the Americans not to challenge China’s sovereignty in the SCS. The gloves are off. After failing to get the Philippines to be the point man to provoke China to stake its claim in the SCS, after failing to get other little USAs in Asean to take over from the Philippines, the Americans have no choice but to challenge China without the veil that it is an innocent bystander. The latest developments in Asean are saying that the little USAs are active again to get Asean to go against China.
Here comes the first batch of trouble makers in the SCS and more would follow suit. The Americans are thinking that they have superiority in bigger and more aircraft carriers and naval ships. So they can bulldoze their way in the SCS with no resistance from China.
The Americans forgot that this is China’s little pond guarded by many batteries of anti ship missiles in the mainland. The SCS is within the range of China’s anti aircraft carrier missiles and every aircraft carrier and big battleship would be tracked and locked on by these missiles a few thousand miles away. This would be a game of picking out the sitting ducks in the pond.
Did the Americans really think that they have superiority in numbers with their aircraft carrier facing a few Chinese coast guard patrol craft? Just be careful not to touch one of these patrol craft or the missiles will come down for target practice. And don’t forget the Chinese submarines are all over the SCS. China may have only one refurbished aircraft carrier, but any war in the SCS would be raining missiles of which China has hundreds or thousands waiting for the Americans to fire the first shot. Would the mad cowboys dare to pull the trigger? They would not know what hit them for the Chinese would be playing their computer games in the mainland, pushing buttons away. There is no need for any Chinese ship to engage the American fleet.
What the Americans can hope to achieve is to hold their pricks and wave around to show the whole world they are in the SCS. The Chinese patrol crafts would watch them from near distance to see how long they could keep their boys and girls holidaying in the SCS before they get homesick.
Tension no doubt has returned to the SCS with the presence of aggressive and offensive American naval ships. The Americans did not name their warship as aircraft carrier strike group for nothing. They are offensive war machine made to conduct wars, to attack enemies anywhere. When would the tinder box blow up? Would any little USAs still want to be part of the plot to attack China with the Americans? Shouldn’t have asked this question. In the latest Asean foreign ministers gathering they are already showing their hands. No one needs to ask the little USAs to say what they are up to. They just do it.

PS. Some of you may ask when am I saying these about the evil American Empire? It is necessary for if no one is saying it, some jokers may think since no one is complaining that all the American actions are right. The Americans have been doing these things for decades, branding Iran, Iraq, especially now the North Koreans as the Axis of Evil and Kim Jong Un as a mad man. In fact Kim's father and grandfather were also branded as mad men. The sad think is that many jokers after reading such fake news daily really believe so without thinking and without questioning.

The Americans must protect international law? How silly! Everywhere the Americans are present they are the one that is breaking international law but the stupid just would not want to see it.

American strategy for world hegemony
Trump is no difference from other US Presidents. He has been sold the same idea that the war industry is the most profitable American industry of all industries. All the Americans need to do is to create troubles around the world, raise tensions, provoke wars, and all the silly nations would come crawling to buy more weapons to kill each other in the name of defence. The American war machine is the biggest in the world, its nuclear arsenal could wipe out all life forms with many to spare. But the Americans are not contented. Trump is going to increase the budget for the American military, to build more advance weapons, for PEACE. From US$600b to US$650b. You believe that?
After one month in office, Trump has been convinced by the war merchants that the only industry that is keeping America going and paying enough taxes for the good life is the war industry. And Trump is sold. All the ministries’ budget would be cut to give more money for the military to spend. This is not just about hegemony but also about making money. It serves a dual purpose, keeping the world busy quarrelling and fighting among themselves and making the Americans not only rich but in control, in charge, as the self appointed policeman of the world, creating troubles so that it has a job to police the world.
But there is a cheaper strategy to dominate the world, to keep the American Empire as the only hegemon. This is simply done by pointing fingers. Yes, the Americans has used this strategy all the time and very successful. All the Americans need to do is to brand someone or country as evil, accuse them of all kinds of crimes, war crimes, currency manipulation, dumping, freedom of navigation, human rights violation, a threat no matter how ridiculous it is, and the silly unthinking people of the world would believe so and start to echo what the Americans and the western media are saying, without wasting a moment to ask if it is true. This is especially true among the bananas in Asia, particularly in Sin City.
By branding and attacking other people or country, and with all the unthinking and silly people believing in it, the victims or countries would be kept busy trying to defend themselves and explain that they are not what the Americans claimed they are. And they would have no time to accuse the Americans of their evil deeds. Every silly bugger would forget to look at the real devil in the Americans for creating wars everywhere, violating international laws, committing genocide of the innocents and calling them war collaterals. Many heads of state were murdered, their countries invaded and ran to the ground by the Americans, but no one is asking or accusing the Americans of these war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The strategy is so simple and so effective, accuse, brand, shout, scream, use the western media, point the finger and the result is the same. Every silly asshole would just listen and behave accordingly as the Americans want them to be. And the evil hegemon would just rule them like their angel, like their God, so magnanimous, so kind, so generous, so peace loving. The evil hegemon just simply said this country is bad, is the enemy, is a threat, and the sillies would go crazy saying aye, aye sir. Please come and protect us.

USA, the solution or the problem?
The USA has been meddling with the Middle East and the Palestinian/Israelis problem since the end of WW2. Till today, it is still claiming that it is the only country able to resolve the Palestinian/Israelis conflict and the state of Israel/Palestinian. Until today, 70 years after the USA created the State of Israel in the heart of Palestinian and Arab land, it is still pretending that it is the solution to the problem when it is the problem from the very beginning.
Read this state from the American Office of the Historian to understand how it all started. The Americans, against the wishes of the Palestinians, created the present state of Israel by transporting millions of displaced and stateless surviving Jews from Europe after WW2 to where it is today.
‘Creation of Israel, 1948
On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel. U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized the new nation on the same day.
Although the United States supported the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which favored the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had assured the Arabs in 1945 that the United States would not intervene without consulting both the Jews and the Arabs in that region. The British, who held a colonial mandate for Palestine until May 1948, opposed both the creation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in Palestine as well as unlimited immigration of Jewish refugees to the region. Great Britain wanted to preserve good relations with the Arabs to protect its vital political and economic interests in Palestine.
Soon after President Truman took office, he appointed several experts to study the Palestinian issue. In the summer of 1946, Truman established a special cabinet committee under the chairmanship of Dr. Henry F. Grady, an Assistant Secretary of State, who entered into negotiations with a parallel British committee to discuss the future of Palestine. In May 1946, Truman announced his approval of a recommendation to admit 100,000 displaced persons into Palestine and in October publicly declared his support for the creation of a Jewish state….’

The Americans planted the seed of conflict and division in the heart of the Middle East and in the pretext of negotiating for the two conflicting parties, grew the seed to an impenetrable military fortress know as Israel today. The several wars fought over the years were not just wars between the Arabs against Israel but wars against USA/Israel with the full military might of the Americans at the disposal of the Israelis. There is no way the Israelis could withstand a combined attack by the Arab world alone or even an attack by Iraq or Iran or Eygpt. It was the Americans fighting on the side of Israel that kept the Israelis invincible.
And the farce of being neutral and playing the neutral negotiator in the dispute was only accepted by the militarily weak and divided Arab nations that could not do anything about it. And periodically the Americans would close an eye to allow the Israelis to attack and destroy any Arab states that have built up a strong enough military force that could threaten Israel. The Arabs are not stupid that they did not know what was happening but their inability to unite as a force to face a common enemy and without the military clout, they could only swallow the pretentious act of the Americans, to be dominated and controlled by the American/Israeli alliance and to keep the status quo going, with the state of Palestine forever a fleeting dream that would not come true as long as the American Empire is ruling the world.
The farcical fight against the ISIS after the devastating destruction of Iraq, Eygpt, Libya and nearly Syria with the creation of the ISIS by the Americans is the biggest wicked joke of the century. It was like fighting the ISIS and feeding it at the same time to keep the game going endlessly and the Arabs being the sacrificial lamb and the Palestinians forever a homeless, weak and disintegrated people, without the resources to determine their own future.
Without the intervention of the Russians, the ISIS would be growing from strength to strength and with more fighters from all corners of the world believing that ISIS was really a rising force in the Middle East, without knowing that its existence was the grace of the Americans, financed, kept alive and fed and armed to keep the Middle East in flame, in conflict, at war till kingdom comes, to secure the security of the state of Israel.
Now that the Russians are in the game, the fake military prowess of the disorganized make shift ISIS force became apparent and real. It is only a matter of time before the ISIS be destroyed and become history once the American’s hand behind the whole game of treachery is exposed.
The Americans were the main problem to the Palestinian/Israelis conflict from day one and it is their intent and in their political and military strategic interest to keep the Arab world in constant and unending turmoil, to keep the Arab nations forever hapless and unable to challenge the little state of Israel, the thorn in the heart of Arab land.
The game is up for the evil Empire. The truth has surfaced, that the Americans are the problem and never the solution to the Palestinian/Israelis conflict and the creation of the state of Palestine and peace in the Middle East.
Game over for the Americans is around the corner.

Why would anyone want to fly United Airline?

Additional officers placed on leave over United passenger removal

Why would anyone want to fly United Airlines after seeing what happened in this video? Or shall I say why would any Asians want to fly United Airlines?

Why would anyone want to buy an airline ticket, paying good money, to be treated like a terrorist, to be bloodied because the airline fouled up by being over booked? Whose fault was it, definitely not the passenger. And why would passengers going on holiday or looking for a peaceful and pleasant flight home be treated or exposed to a violent and horrifying experience inside an aircraft?

Other than the victimised passenger that was brutalised, should not all the passengers filed a lawful for the frightening and upsetting ordeal that they did not pay for it and should not be made to sit through it? It was very upsetting for adults and children to be put through the ordeal. The shock, the emotional turmoil and psychological impact on the passengers must be compensated. It cannot happen in a civilized country, in a plane run by a civilized people.

I would never fly in this airline in my life.

End of brinkmanship
The Americans are still screaming their heads off over North Korea. Mike Pence arrogantly said American’s policy of strategic patience is over. Trump said the biggest armada is sailing towards North Korea while Tillerson and Matthis were blowing their own horns at North Korea and also Iran.
The Americans are ratcheting up for war with North Korea and now it seems that they are also going after Iran. Fooling around and kicking Arab and Muslim asses when they have no nuclear power and unable to hit back is one thing, trying to kick asses with nuclear powers like Iran and North Korea requires more deep and careful thoughts. There is no room for mistakes or miscalculation. The Americans cannot afford it, cannot afford nuclear weapons landing on American cities.
Threatening Iran and North Korea is not a game for fools. Both countries are watching the Americans every move and a wrong reading could see them pulling the trigger in a no choice situation. The Americans have to be very very careful not to give the wrong signal or push them into a corner when they would just slam back at the Americans.
Despite all the hot air, it is apparent that the Americans too are getting cold feet. For Carl Vinson to be turning away from the Korean Peninsula there must be a good reason for so doing. In a Reuter report it said that the order to sail Carl Vinson to North Korea was by a Japanese Commander, Harry Harris. Putting Harris staring down at Kim Jung Un is the most dangerous scenario for the Americans, with Harris a sure cock to push the button at the slightest excuse while Kim Jung Un is still an unknown element. Kim is still new and could be just as hasty to push the button at the slightest news of Americans firing off their cruise missiles.
With these two facing each other, the risk of a miscalculation is exceptionally high. Maybe this is the real reason why Washington overturned Harris order for Carl Vinson to head to North Korea but ordered to sail to the Indian Ocean. There cannot be any wrong move and as much as the Americans could not trust Kim, they equally could not trust the trigger happy Japanese Harris in Command, with Pearl Harbour and Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the back of his mind.
Sensible heads must have ruled the day. In a critical time like this, cool heads and wisdom must prevail to avoid a war by mistakes, miscalculation, or by other motives. Yes there will be no winner in a nuclear exchange. Kim at this moment must be just as highly energized and edgy and could push the button. This must be very worrying time for the Americans.
Perhaps it is better that the two sides sit down quickly to develop a protocol similar to the CUES adopted by China and the US to minimize a war by accident. The Americans and the North Koreans must sit down to work things out as not doing so would be hazardous and unacceptable. Both sides need to wind down and work out some confidence building measures to lower the tension and avoid an accidental nuclear war. War is not an option for both sides as nuclear weapons could fly over the skies at the slightest misjudgement and there will be no turning back the clock. Both sides must be worrying themselves sick that an accident must not happen that would lead to immeasurable destruction on both sides.
No more ratcheting for wars, no more mind games, just simply sit down to work things out. The Americans in their desperation to keep painting the North Koreans as bad, as enemy, forgot that there is such a thing called confidence building measures to keep both sides sane and not too hasty to push the button. It is time the Americans rethink their hostile policies towards North Korea, to engage North Korea like they engaged China and lower tension and move away from the brink of total war.
For the sake of the American people, the Japanese and the South Koreans, the Americans must accept the new reality and make peace with North Korea instead of shouting for war. The Americans cannot win and will suffer untold damages and destruction in this war, if it ever happens.
Americans should read this to have an idea what they are meddling with:
By Ju-min Park
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean state media warned the United States of a "super-mighty preemptive strike" after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear programme.
U.S. President Donald Trump has taken a hard line with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who has rebuffed admonitions from sole major ally China and proceeded with nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of U.N. Security Council sanctions.
The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party, did not mince its words.
"In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists' invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes," it said.
Reclusive North Korea regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and the United States and has shown no let-up in its belligerence after a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang.
"We're reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which we can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang to re-engage with us, but re-engage with us on a different footing than past talks have been held," Tillerson told reporters in Washington on Wednesday.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, on a tour of Asian allies, has said repeatedly an "era of strategic patience" with North Korea is over.

South Korea calling the USA bluff


For a few decades since the end of WW2, the Americans have been conning their daft allies that the American military forces and bases are there to protect these daft countries. This myth would have continue and gone unchallenged if Duterte has not become the President of the Philippines. Duterte was the first Asian leader to call the American bluff by telling the Americans to pack up and fuck off. The Americans panicked and begged for the Special Forces to be allowed to stay, presumably to help to fight the Muslim insurgency and the Abu Sayaf. Incidentally the American Special Forces have been in the Philippines for ages and the Muslim insurgency seems to grow in strength despite the presence of the Special Forces, just like the growing power of ISIS in the ME. And rightly Duterte was asking whether the Special Forces were in the Philippines to fight the insurgency or there to breed, arm and train the rebels.


The myth that they were there to help the Philippines was exposed when they refused to leave. Their main purpose is to protect the interest of the American Empire. And rightly Duterte is demanding that the Americans must pay for being allowed to be present in the Philippines.


Then came this greenhorn Donald Trump who really believes that the American military bases overseas are there to protect those countries and started to demand that these countries pay for American protection. Their adamant and persistence to locate the THAAD system in South Korea and Trump's demand for a payment of US$1b have hit the wall. The South Koreans refused to pay and the Americans have to back out and have agreed to pay for the THAAD deployment. Why not, the THAAD systems were there to protect the American Empire, not really to protect the South Koreans. And rightly the South Koreans called the American bluff as they knew that it was the Americans that wanted the THAAD to be in the Korean Peninsula.

The South Koreans should demand that the Americans pay for the privilege to have bases and THAAD deployed on their soil. And more, for risking the destruction of South Korea and the Korean people as they would be primary targets should war breaks out.


Now, who will be next to call the American bluff and refused to pay? Abe has been under pressured by Trump to pay and so is NATO countries. If only these countries tell the Americans to go packing by refusing to pay, Trump and the Americans would be red faces, not wanting to leave and unable to collect a cent. Why don't these countries demand that the Americans pay for the right to have bases in their countries to protect the American Empire and expand their influence and military power?



What about silly Asean countries begging the Americans to stay and willing to pay? Some of these little USAs are so dumb and could not see that they are paying to support the American Empire when it should be the Americans that should be paying for the privilege of having a military presence in the region. As they said, suckers are born everyday and some are willing suckers without knowing why.

Donald Trump - Would he be the number One villian in human civilisation?


As the Washington rakes up the tension of war in Korea, the Americans are chuckling in glee as if they are about to watch another Hollywood war movie when the Americans would turn out victorious and the victims wiped out forever. And they could pop champagne and bath in the glories of more war heroes. The rest of the world is watching silently with disinterest as if it is a non event, it does not involve them, does not affect them and their lives will go on as per normal. This did not prevent AFP from another report to demonise North Korea with the heading, "N Korea the 'greatest threat' faced by US" or should it be "USA the 'greatest threat' to N Korea and human civilisation'?


The war hawks in Washington are shouting war, beating the drums of war. But do they know what this war means? The weapons available to both combatants are unthinkable that no sane men or women would ever think that the damage would be bearable and acceptable. Each nuclear bomb on a major city could wipe out tens of millions of people in a scale never before seen or experienced in human history. Imagine the world without Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, without Seoul, without Pyongyang, without New York, Washington, LA, Chicago and many big cities in the countries engaged in this war. And this is only a conservative estimate of the destruction. Should China and Russia get into the picture, the USA, Russia, China and Europe could go up in smokes.


What is the reason, the unacceptable and intolerable reason that makes this war unavoidable? No, the North Koreans are not threatening to attack anyone with nuclear weapons. The North Koreans are developing their own nuclear weapons for their own defence, to be able to retaliate should the Americans attack them. The North Koreans are in no position to go to war with the Americans and hope to survive a holocaust. The North Koreans are not mad and stupid to want to do that, to invite their own destruction. They are trying their best to develop a little insurance against the daily threats of an American invasion.


The really mad and warlike monsters are those in power in the White House and Washington and in Tokyo. These people think it is ok, alright, reasonable, acceptable, to start a nuclear war with the North Koreans, that the destruction and potential loss of tens of millions of lives, even threatening the existence of human civilisation just to stop the North Koreans from developing their small defence capability against an attack by the Americans and Japanese is worth it.


They believe in their own madness, that the Korean leaders are mad people and wanting to attack the Americans and it is right and good to destroy the Korean people now, even risking losing tens of millions of Americans, Japanese and South Koreans. This is the real madness, the real threat to the killings of millions of people on a false belief and assumption by a few mad people.


Would Trump really want to do this and become the greatest villian in human history and civilisation? Does he appreciate how serious and destructive is this war out of nothing but an imagined and self created fear of a straw man? When the nuclear button is pushed, there is no end to how many nuclear bombs would be fired and how many cities would be no more.


How sane or insane are those people in Washington and the White House? Should they be locked up forever before they destroy this world and this civilisation all because of a red herring? Tillerson spoke at the UN urging the world to act against the North Koreans before catastrophic consequences happened. He is now rounding up the stupid Asean countries to help the Americans to destroy North Korea, a standard trick used over and over again against small countries. Would the Asean leaders be smart enough to see through this devious strategy and be aware that they too would one day be demonized just like North Korea?

The reality is that catastrophic consequences would happen if the Americans attack the North Koreans now. If not, no catastrophic consequences will happen and the status quo will remain, the world will stay in peace. It is the Americans that are going to start a mad war of unimaginable consequences. Who would be there to stop these mad men and women in Washington? Who is there to stop Donald Trump from becoming the number one villain of human civilization?

USA unleashing the devil
For its own strategic interest to remain as the top dog in the world of hegemony and empire, the Americans have unwittingly and willingly unleashed the biggest devil of the past and allowing the devil to rearm to the teeth to do damage once more to civilisation and to the Americans one day. China is seen as the number one enemy of the Americans not that China is going to start a war with the Americans, but by virtue of its size, its population, the energy release from an industrious and educated population, organised as a nation, to be able to surpass the Americans in all fields. The rate the Chinese people are climbing the industrial, scientific and technological ladder, at a blinding speed that it is only a matter of days before China would be number one in everything. This is an undeniable and unstoppable fact, without having to go to war. It is just a natural historical development of human civilisation. And this is seen by the Americans as a threat to their world dominance and must be stopped at all costs.

The fear of being number two to China is driving the Americans bonkers. They are doing everything they could, dropping their defensive instinct to protect themselves, by allowing the Japanese to rearm to it former military strength to create another diversion, another area of concern for China. How far would the Americans go to cut the leash on Japan to become another mighty military machine? Have the Americans forgotten what Japan did to the rest of Asia and SE Asia? Have the Americans forgotten Pearl Harbour? Maybe, maybe the Americans think this is history. The Japanese of today, in their businessmen suits, are very nice and respectable gentlemen, very polite people, unlike their barbaric parents. The DNAs have changed..

Have the Americans forgotten about the two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the carpet bombing of Tokyo and other Japanese cities? Perhaps, when the Americans are not the victims, they could and would forget. Would the Americans forget 911? Never, because the Americans were attacked and were the victims. This same pattern of thoughts would apply to the Japanese. Would the Japanese forget Pearl Harbour? Never, because that was the biggest military victory of the Japanese against the Americans. Nevermind if it was a sneak attack without warning, without declaration of war. The Americans got themselves to be blamed for sleeping on the job.

Would the Japanese forget the bombing of Japan and the two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Never. They are holding annual rituals to remember the days when Japan were obliterated by the Americans. They are also remembering their murderous soldiers in the Yasukuni Shrine. They are very proud of these soldiers for their conquest of Asia and their sneak attacks against the Americans.But they would forget their atrocities across Asia and South East Asia.

What would these memories mean to the Americans and the Japanese? One day, the debt must be settled. The Americans must pay for the bombing of Tokyo, for dropping two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for keeping Japan as a semi colony of the American Empire until today. Yes, the Japanese are still bowing politely to the American warlords. But did the Americans see the glint and hatred in their eyes when their heads are bent, starring at their feet?

The Americans and the Japanese have a long history of aggression, rivalry and hate. Pearl Harbour could have its origin when Commodore Perry opened up Japan by force. It could also originate from the American's effort to deny access to natural resources from Japan.

The history and relationship between China and the USA were less acrimonious. There was no invasion and war between the two countries. The only war they fought was on opposite sides in the Korean War. And during the WW2, China was on the side of the Americans, and many Americans fought with the Chinese against the Imperialist Japan. The souring of relationship was political, the Cold War and anti Communism. Such wounds are easily healed as they did not drive too deeply into the psyche of the two people. China would not be harbouring vengeful thoughts of retaliating against an American nuclear bombing of Chinese cities. There were none to talk about. Though there were many occasions when the Americans were flirting with the idea of a preemptive nuclear strike against Chinese nuclear bases in Lop Nor, these did not happen.

China and the USA were political enemies but no unforgiveable and unbearable acts of aggression between the two countries. Now the Americans are choosing to unleash the devil in Japan in their military strategy for world dominance against China. Is this a wise thing to do? Would the Japanese turn against the Americans one day when the Americans were fighting China and deal another more horrendous attack than Pearl Harbour? The Japanese have all the reasons to do so, for their national pride and their militaristic ambition to be another super power.

What Harry Harris had done, by jumping at the slightest opportunity to want to start a war with China in the South China Sea and in the Korean Peninsula are signs of what he and the Japanese have in the back of their minds. The only way for Japan to be the top super power once again is for the destruction of the USA, China and Russia. If Japan could get these three countries to destroy each other, Japan would be number one again by default.

While the Americans are obsessed with the rise of China, let they not forget the bigger devil lurking behind, in bed with them. Harry Harris is a dangerous man. But the more dangerous one is Abe. Would the Americans really want to unleash this devil that has an axe to grind against the Americans? Who is the real enemy against the Americans, China or Japan? By virtue of the relative size, America will be number two to China in a matter to time, no need for war. It is a natural process of human civilisation. For Japan to be number one, it has to see to the destruction of China, Russia and the USA. How could Japan achieve this goal? Are the Americans aiding the Japanese to this end game?

When war comes home
The blast at Ariana Grande’s Concert, the 22 dead and many wounded, were a grim reminder of how painful and destructive war is to the victims. The victors, those doing the killings, went home smiling and honoured, knighted as heroes for killing other people. The faces of victims, children and woman folks often draw sympathetic emotions from the readers. Yes, the horrors of war must have hurt many innocents, and now 22 dead and 59 wounded and suffering in pains.
The Europeans have been conducting wars of terrors, called conquest, colonization, occupation in other people’s land all over the world, from the Americas to Asia and Africa, for more than 5 centuries. How many innocents and children had they killed and maimed? Must be hundreds of millions! Even the invasion of Iraq, Libya and Syria in recent years, in each of these countries several hundreds of thousands were killed and maimed. Did the heroes of these invading countries, ie USA and UK and Nato countries care a dime about these deaths and incapacitated victims? Surely there were more than 22 babies and mothers and innocents killed by these bastard invaders. No, they went home to celebrate their bombings and killings with their citizens, telling their gruesome war stories like bedtime fairy tales.
The Europeans and Americans have been invading and conquering other countries, starting wars everywhere and everyday like having fun. Now the war is coming home. Little by little, more Americans, British and Europeans are going to feel the pain and horrors of wars at home that their victims felt over more than 5 centuries of European brutality. Would they then understand how the victims of their wars felt, how they suffered, how their lives and countries were ruined?
I don’t think so. When the victims are the Asians and Africans, it is ok. But not when the victims are Americans or Europeans. Their lives are more valuable than the Asians and Africans.
The Americans and Europeans better braced themselves up for war is coming home to roost, maybe just next door down the street. They used to go conquering the world. The world is coming to the US, UK and Europe, to conquer them in their homeland. The tide is changing. With so many former colony people emigrating into Europe and the USA, all victims of colonization and conquest, what could the Americans and Europeans expect from them, serving them tea and breakfast?

ISIS has saved the American Empire
After the disastrous and inhuman invasion of Iraq and Libya and the murder
of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, the Americans have no further reason
to stay on in the two countries. A big thank you to the Hillary Clinton and
Obama, better known as the mother and father of ISIS, the Americans now
have a good reason to remain in these countries and in several other
countries like Afganistan, Pakistan and also the Philippines, claiming to
be fighting the ISIS.


If there is no ISIS, what other reasons would the Americans cooked to keep
their soldiers and military weapons in these countries? ISIS is giving the
Americans a reason to put troops everywhere, and for the countries to buy
more American weapons to fight them.


With ISIS, the Americans can continue to conduct wars in the name of
fighting ISIS. And with ISIS, with wars, the killings of civilians become
part and parcel of the American wargame. Jim Mattis was proudly quoted in
the media that “civilian casualties ‘a fact of life’” And there are calling
more of their allies to commit more troops to occupying these countries,
telling the govts of these countries that they have to be there to fight
ISIS. Did the govts of these countries ask the American soldiers to fight
ISIS in their homeland? Did these govts consent to the Americans sending
troops into their soil?


No, the Americans just told them they are there to fight ISIS whether they
like it or not. And the American war industries are laughing all the way
to the bank, selling more weapons to fight ISIS.


Of course if there is no ISIS the Americans would create other threats like
Iran and North Korea. The North Koreans testing their missiles becomes a
threat to the Americans and even to the Japanese and is good reason to talk
about war and more wars. The belligerent and warlike Japanese, never learnt
from their bitter defeat in WW2, are itching to want to go to war with the
North Koreans, thinking they could occupy and colonise the Koreans one more
time. They forgot that the major cities like Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka etc are
within range of North Korean missiles and a hit would be disastrous. But
the mad Japanese are still aggressively trying to provoke a war with the
North Koreans, threatening to respond to the North Korean missile tests and
thinking their big cities would be safe.


The American Empire is still flying its flags everywhere. And now there is
more reason for the American Special Forces to remain in the Philippines,
to fight ISIS. Soon there will be American forces in Indonesia and
Malaysia, to fight ISIS. Has the recent rise is ISIS militarism in the Philippines got to do with the USA trying to topple the Duterte regime?


Thanks again to Hillary Clinton and Obama, for the birth of ISIS.

Mattis showing contempt to Asia.

In his opening address at the Shangri La Dialogue, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis showed contempt and disrespect to the Asian leaders by lying that North Korea is a 'clear and present' danger to Asia. How could this man think that the Asians are fools and could not see the total irrelevance in his haste and gaffe to lead the Asian leaders by the nose to toe the American line? What threat do the North Koreans present to the rest of Asia, a hermit poor nation with barely 26m million people? Does Mattis think that the Asian leaders are so silly to believe in his lie?

The only threat the North Koreans present is to be able to launch a nuclear strike against the Americans should the Americans attack their country. And the Americans hate that. Once the North Koreans have enough nuclear warheads to strike the American homeland, the Americans would not be able to threaten the North Koreans anymore and would be unable to do a Saddam Hussein on them.

No Asian countries in their right mind would think of attacking the North Koreans. They have no reasons to do so and neither have the North Koreans any reason to want to attack another Asian country. I stand corrected here when Little USAs are concerned. They will treat the North Koreans as enemies when their American masters said so. Those that participated in the invasion of Iraq and the murder of Saddam Hussein have not shown any remorse or regret for killing the innocent Iraqis and turning that country into hell because of an American lie.

Oops, Japan is an exception. It invaded and colonised the Koreans and the Japanese are harbouring the same dream of ruling the Koreans once again. And should North Korea ever be a threat to any Asian country, it must be Japan, the country that colonised them and rule them like slaves.

The Americans as usual are using the Shangri La Dialogue to peddle their war agenda and picking on China on North Korea and the building of defensive structures in Chinese islands in the South China Sea issues. War, inciting war and provoking war are always on the Americans' top agenda. In 2015 alone, the Americans conducted 175 military exercises and war games, 15 more than in 2014. The numbers for 2016 are likely to be more.

While China is all about trade, economic progress and infrastructure developments, the Americans are all about military agreements, defence treaties, war games, selling of arms and threatening wars and engaging in wars. Countries that seek economic growth and trade are all marching to Beijing while countries that are aligned to the Americans are all preparing for war and wasting their limited financial resources in buying American weapons of war. The stark contrast in the motive and agenda of China and the USA does not need much effort to tell.

The Americans have been so used to set the agenda for the world, especially to the daft Asian countries and putting them on the defensive. The problems of North Korea and the South China Sea are hyped by the Americans as the Asian problems. It is about time China and the rest of the world, including Europe, set the agenda and demand the Americans to abide by international rules and laws. Europe has broken ranks with the Americans are have pledged to work with China instead in world matters.

To start with, the Americans are again behaving like a rogue nation, refusing to abide by the Paris Agreement on Climate Change to protect the world. It took hundreds of countries and several decades to hammer out an agreement to keep the temperature of the world safe but the Americans are walking away from the agreement in violation of the interests of the nations of the world. The Americans are saying that the rest of the world should abide by whatever rules and laws, but not the Americans. While the rest of the world are trying to reduce carbon emission and the temperature of earth, the Americans are saying that they can do as they like, continue to burn fossil fuel like they have been doing for several centuries at a rate no other country could compete. The Americans are the worst guzzlers of fossil fuels for several centuries, consuming more of the world's limited resources more than any other nations. Now they are going to do it alone, as they always do, and telling the world to be responsible and do the necessary to keep the world safe but not the Americans.

China, Europe and the rest of the world under the UN must start to get together to pressurise this rogue nation to follow the rules of law, of international norms and must not be allowed to get away scot free. There are other pressing issues that the rest of the world and China must pressurise the Americans like denuclearisation and nuclear disarmament, not just in Korea but the whole world. How can the Americans think they could amass the biggest and most lethal nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction while harping on what the North Koreans are doing that is a small fraction of what the Americans possessed? China and the rest of the world must also pressurise the Americans on limiting the sales of weapons all over the world that eventually ended up in the hands of ISIS and other terrorist groups. The Americans have been proclaiming that they are fighting ISIS but covertly have been training, feeding and arming ISIS and many terrorist groups around the world. What a neat formula, fighting and breeding terrorism at the same time and benefiting from it by selling arms and claiming to be the policeman of the world.

China and the rest of the world must also pressurise the rogue nation on free trade and not protectionism. China and the rest of the world must set the agenda for this irresponsible rogue nation to abide by instead of the rogue nation setting the agenda for the rest of the world in the interests of the evil Empire. The Americans should respect the rest of the world and not hold the world in disgust and in contempt. The real threat to the world, to world peace, the clear and present danger, is the USA.

Shangri La Dialogue – What’s new?
The Shangri La Dialogue came to a close after a two day session where the Americans set the agenda for the blind and daft to say aye aye. In yesterday’s media, Eng Hen gave a summary of the main issues of the Dialogue and as I asked, what’s new, he literally repeated the American agenda that North Korea and terrorism are the clear and present danger to the region. The big question, how many Asian countries feel threatened by the North Koreans or believe in this threat? The other big question is that how come none of the Asian countries could come out with alternative agenda on what are really important to the region and question the American slime that North Korea is a threat to the region? All happy and clueless coming to Singapore to have a holiday and to listen to the preaching of the Empire?
When Eng Hen repeated what Mattis said, does it mean that he or Singapore agrees with the American myth? It is difficult for Asians to think differently especially when the white man is from the most powerful country in the world and what he said must be right or at least not to be questioned. Or was Eng Hen just behaving like a gracious host, not to offend the most powerful nation in the world, Singapore’s staunchest backer in international affairs, and just has to repeat what the American said? Or is it due to the lack of an Asian view, an Asian agenda, that the rest of the Asian delegates were there making empty noises or talking nonsense or making no noise at all, so there is nothing to talk about other than the American agenda? Yes, what is new other then allowing the Americans to come all the way across the Pacific Ocean to tell the daft what is their problem and that the daft did not know.
Ok, to be fair to Eng Hen, I think he just gave lip service to Mattis by mentioning North Korea in passing while his main speech was all about terrorism which is the real threat to the region. His only mention of North Korea was in one sentence, if the media is quoting his full speech, and the rest of his address was all about terrorism. Can the daft see and understand the difference in saying something and let it pass as irrelevant and then concentrate on the real issue, ie terrorism?
Who cares about North Korea other than the Americans and those that were stirring the hornet’s nest? If no Asian country is taking a pole to poke at the North Koreans, the North Koreans would not bother of the country’s existence. The real threat to the region other than terrorism is from the world’s Number One Terrorist, the Americans and their provocation and agitation for war in the region. The Americans are still behaving like the rogues from Europe that raped the whole world in the colonial days, believing in might is right. Remove this monster and there will be peace and stability with only the smaller terrorist threat to deal with.
Get the picture? The Number One Terrorist is pointing the fingers at the North Koreans and others and all the daft forgot to look at the Number One Terrorist as the real threat. They just divert the attention to something else and the daft just look at where the Number One Terrorist is pointing to. When would the daft open their eyes to see the real terrorist in the region, in the whole world?
Stupidity has no cure.
