Korean Reunification amidst new realities and Korean interests
After the Korean War, nearly 70 years have gone by and many leaders have come and gone. The North Koreans are seeing a third generation of leaders led by the grand son of Kim Il Sung while the South has seen many leaders served and departed. The leaders of both Koreas are of a very different generation from the Cold War days and are coming to terms with the new realities of a 21ts Century world and a new generation of Korean people on both sides of the 38 parallel.
War is increasing becoming irrelevant to settle differences between people of a country, of the same nationality, race and culture except for the evil Empire. The Germans have reunited. The Vietnamese have reunited. The Chinese are working to be reunited but with a long trajectory without wanting to force the issue unless the Taiwanese seek independence. The reunification of Taiwan is a matter of time, a matter of when. There is no hurry as the two people and economy get to fuse and intertwined more closely and become more interdependent.
North and South Korea would also be reunited in a matter of time. They are one people and would not be separated forever. The issue is how to go about this reunification. The new reality is to bring about a reunification peacefully. The two halves of Korea could start by agreeing on some fundamental principles like China and Taiwan, that there is one China and the reunification will be by peaceful negotiation. And they shall not be pressured by time, that the reunification must take place within a fixed time frame. Let the future generations, if necessary to settle the reunification issue if needed be as long as the One China principle is not threatened. There could even be a gray period of one country two systems to gradually integrate and merge the two into One China.
North Korea and South Korea could adapt the Chinese model, agree that there is one Korea and reunification will be by peaceful negotiation without a fixed time frame and they could even live with a one country two systems for a long gestation period till the two people and govts are ready to be reunited as one Korea. The denounciation of war would remove the main reason for the Americans to justify continuous war games to provoke the North Koreans.
When there is agreement that war is no longer an option and both agree on the eventual reunification of the two Koreas by peaceful means, both govt and people could start to work more closely, cooperate with each other, share and help each other as they progress along without being forced into a war by the evil Empire.
South Korea should also exert its independence and not be coerced to conduct provocative war games with the Americans to threaten North Korea. All acts of hostility should cease and replace by acts of cooperation and good will. These would pave the way to the eventual reunification of the two Koreas peacefully, in 30, 50 or 100 years. Let the Korean people be reunited as one people again without going to wars, without having to be in a hurry.
Keep the foreigners out of the equation and settle the differences among the Koreans themselves, with both sides pledging not to go to war. The Koreans must decide their own fate and not be dragged into a war by the evil Americans and Japanese. They must treasure their independence and unity as a proud people living in peace like the Vietnamese now, after driving out the foreign forces in their land and reunited as one people to charge their own destiny.
There is great hope that the wise leaders in Kim JongUn and Moon Jae In would be able to bring their people and country together. The Americans and Japanese are still working desperately to bring the two Koreas to a war instead of reunification. Only the Korean people can avoid this calamity to their people and country by seeking peace through negotiation.

Americans are the darlings of Asean leaders



The Americans are in hot pursuit of Najib's crime in the 1MDB case. The Indonesian govt has helped the Americans to seize the hundred million dollar yacht, Equanimity, supposedly owned by Jho Low and with everyone knowing who is the real owner. The hounding of Jho Low is just a distraction from the main victim, Jho Low is only a front runner for you know who.

I am not sure why the Indonesians would lend a hand to do the dirty work for the Americans as if it is abiding by the American Law, that it is also a state of the USA, against the interest of fellow Asean leader.

The Americans are also deeply involved in the overthrow of the Duterte regime and many Pinoys are listening to their colonial masters and sharping their knives to stab into Duterte's back.

Aung San Suu Kyi is also on the hair cross of the Americans. Her removal is only a matter of time. She is a hot target in Canberra when the Asean leaders met with the self appointed white Sheriff of SE Asia.

So is Hun Sen. The Australians are using the Meeting to attack Asean leaders that are not little USAs or American cronies using human rights as the weapon. Why aren't the Asean leaders counter attack the Australian white Australia policies that are still in force under different guises? The Australians have been practising racism against Asians for centuries to keep Australia white and the natives in their black hole.

Aung Sang Suu Kyi, Najib and Hun Sen should also skip the submit unless they are willing to be slammed by the white supremacists in Australia acting as the agent of the evil Empire.

With the American hands everywhere meddling with the domestic politics of Asean countries, would Singapore also do their bidding to gang up against the North Koreans? Singapore has not made any official statement on this but the Americans have already said so.

What is certain is that these foolish Asean leaders would go on their bended knees to have a chance to be invited to the White House to have a meal with the Emperor and would be so happy and proud of the invite. Even Najib would be very pleased if the Emperor were to send him an invitation and he would go ga ga and forgot about the 1MDB persecution and the millions he has lost. And all his merry men would be hysterical if invited to an aircraft carrier and would do anything the Americans told them to, even thinking of starting a war with China.

The silliness of the Asean leaders for not being able to tell a devil standing in their face is in their DNA. The Americans could screw them everyday and they would still go running when the Americans say fetch. When would Najib or his deputies be like eager beavers queuing to be invited to the White House? When would the Pinoys be bowing down to the Emperor and offering their land as American bases again, to be the colony of the Americans? When would Thailand and Myanmar do the same? When would the Indonesians also crawl to the White House when beckoned?

Oops, I for got to include Thailand's Ocha also being attacked by the Americans for his military rule. The Americans have forgotten that Thailand provided them the military bases to attack Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Come to think of it, only two or three Asean leaders are not being attacked by the Americans and its cronies.

Why would Asean think it appropriate to have a bilateral meeting with a country with a population less than Malaysia as if it is really a big power? This is really disgraceful.

Sergei Skripal – The Russians did it?
The evidence is crystal clear, beyond any doubt. The Russians did it. This is just like the sinking of the Choeonan, the killing of Kim Jong Nam, the sarin gas used by Assad. It is like the murderer deliberately left behind the murder weapon with his name carved on it.
The clearer and more obvious the evidence, the more smelly is the plot. Are the Russian intelligent agents so amateurish, fumbling and did not know how to wipe their mouths after eating? These are professionals, highly trained killers. Only the West, in this case the British, would want the world to believe the Russians are fools and committed a murder in broad daylight with evidence to tell the whole world they did it.
How many of you really believe that the Russians did it? How many of you believe Kim Jong Nam was murdered by the North Koreans? How many of you believe Assad would use sarin gas to attack his own people when the Americans and the West are putting him under a microscope? How many of you believe the Choeonan was sunk by the North Koreans and not by the Americans?
This is standard black ops 1.0. But not to worry, many of the unthinking would jump to conclusion without knowing that the ideas were planted in their simple minds to believe in what they read in the reputable media, with clear cut evidence that the Russians did it, the North Koreans did it, Assad did it. The reputable main media never print fake news, only the truth after many rounds of checks and confirmations!
Talking about fake news? Who is producing fake news? Remember WMD in Iraq, with information from the world’s top intelligent services in the USA and UK and France. And with their Presidents and PMs all believing in them and telling the whole world to believe in them. Then what was the truth eventually? Many dafts still insisting that Saddam Hussein had WMD and would not believe in this American and western lie. They refused to talk about it.
Who fabricated the false information on WMD? No, it is true? Saddam Hussein had WMD!
Sergei Skripal was a double agent that was exchanged for other Russian agents caught by the British. His score was settled, many decades back. There is no reason for the Russians to want to kill him any more. The plot was to kill him, after all he is no longer useful to the British anymore, oops, at least for one last time, to be killed and to put the blame on the Russians.
Strange, not true? What is benefiting from this wicked hoax and who is the victim? Russia or Britain? Did the British lose anything other than a useless Russian double agent? What has the Russians to gain from this killing of a historical non entity and with their names carved on the murder weapon?
Think, don't take things at face value, especially fake news from the main media and govt sources.

Cynical Investor – Meng Seng doesn’t know his Chinese history
‘Our very own Wu Sangui (Silence of Goh Meng Seng) who wants us to kowtow to Xi because China’s a peaceful nation doesn’t know his Chinese history because he doesn’t know how China was created: by emperors who waged war. And he was from a Chinese-language school?’
The above was written by Cynical Investor rubbishing Goh Meng Seng for not knowing Chinese history, implying that China was not a peaceful nation and also implying that the American and European Empires were peaceful countries. OK he did not write this last part but from where he is coming, China is or was a belligerent state compares to the USA and other European countries. He ended by asking this,
‘Or he is a lackey of Xi?’
Shall I ask Cynical Investor is he an American or western lackey? Did he know the history of the USA and the western colonialists? Did he know how the Europeans massacred the native Americans by the tens of millions to take over their land? Did he know that the then Europeans continued to conquer and took over the land belonging to the Mexicans and other natives to make what the USA is today? Did he know that the Americans have been on a war path since the end of WW2, fighting wars everyday, Korean War, Vietnam War, wars in Middle East, in Eastern Europe, in Latin America, in Africa, in Central Asia? Did he know anything about the British Empire, the Dutch Empire, the Spaniards, Portugese, the French and the Germans and the Japanese Empires?
As for China, after the defeat by the British in the Opium War in 1840s, China was a disintegrated country until 1949, a victim of Western colonialism and Japanese Imperialism? And until today, modern China had only engaged in three defensive wars, in the Korean War to drive the Americans from the Yalu River to the 38th parallel, the 1962 Sino Indian Border War after the Indians attacked Chinese border positions to seize Chinese territories, and the border war with Vietnam to force the Vietnamese to withdraw from Laos and Cambodia at the request of Asean countries, especially Thailand.
Some idiots are digging out the thousand years of Chinese history to condemn China as a warring state. How relevant was this ancient history of China to modern China against the warmongering Americans and Europeans today?
Shall I call Cynical Investors our very own modern day Japanese traitor stirring hatred against modern day Chinese and China. Did he want the Chinese to kowtow to the Americans and the Westerners? Agree? Did he know Chinese history?
From the Yuan Dynasty, the Qing Dynasty, China was actually invaded and conquered by the Mongols and the Manchus, ruled by these foreigners. The fact that these foreigners eventually were assimilated by the Chinese Civilisation did not make their aggression and invasion of other states an act of Chinese aggression and expansionism.
China was a victim of invasion and occupation by hostile foreign forces, not the aggressor that these ignoramus made China to be. From 1271, the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty, the Chinese as a civilisation was never an expansionist people, conquering and invading other countries. This is about 800 years of Chinese history, and longer if the Song Dynasty was included, that China and the Chinese Civilisation was not the belligerent state that the stupid want to make it to be.
Many parts of Chinese territories and islands are still occupied by the invading foreigners till today.

PS.
Shashi Tharoor is author of “Inglorious Empire: What the British Did to India.” He chairs the Indian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee.
“History,” Winston Churchill said, “will be kind to me, for I intend to write it myself.” He needn’t have bothered. He was one of the great mass murderers of the 20th century, yet is the only one, unlike Hitler and Stalin, to have escaped historical odium in the West. He has been crowned with a Nobel Prize (for literature, no less), and now, an actor portraying him (Gary Oldman) has been awarded an Oscar....
Dealing with unrest in Mesopotamia in 1921, as secretary of state for the colonies, Churchill acted as a war criminal: “I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against the uncivilised tribes; it would spread a lively terror.” He ordered large-scale bombing of Mesopotamia, with an entire village wiped out in 45 minutes.
In Afghanistan, Churchill declared that the Pashtuns “needed to recognise the superiority of [the British] race” and that “all who resist will be killed without quarter.” He wrote: “We proceeded systematically, village by village, and we destroyed the houses, filled up the wells, blew down the towers, cut down the great shady trees, burned the crops and broke the reservoirs in punitive devastation. … Every tribesman caught was speared or cut down at once.”....
Churchill’s beatification as an apostle of freedom seems all the more preposterous given his 1941 declaration that the Atlantic Charter’s principles would not apply to India and the colored colonies. He refused to see people of color as entitled to the same rights as himself.

Churchill must be one of the greatest western heroes of Cynical Investor. I only hope Cynical Investor is not Indian, but I am sure he is a coloured person.

Kim Jong Un, the statesman extraordinaire
Praises and accolades are pouring in to acknowledge the achievements and abilities of Kim Jong Un as a maverick statesman to bring North Korea to where it is today. Under his able leadership, North Korea has stood up to all the American aggression and traps to bring the country to its knees. Not only has Kim Jong Un survived the daily military threats of war, the economic sanctions and the threats of a preemptive strike and regime change, he has singlehandedly turned North Korea into a nuclear power, a status that made the Americans hapless and no longer able to threaten him with war with impunity. The possession of nuclear weapons that could reach the USA is the sole factor that now offered Kim Jong Un and his North Korea peace of mind.
With his new stature confirmed, Kim is now on a charm offensive, visiting China and agreeing to meet up with the presidents of South Korea and the USA. Kim has out manoeuvred and out foxed the Americans and gained great respect from leaders around the world. This young man is no easy push around, not even by the mightiest evil Empire. Trump would have to meet him and negotiate with him, no more, no less, on equal terms, on Kim’s terms.
The rise of Kim Jong Un must have taken a hit on the silly unthinking critics that gobbled up all the nonsense and negative remarks fabricated by the Americans to discredit Kim. No longer is anyone going to talk about the rocket man or using other derogatory labels against Kim. The Americans would have to treat him just like another leader of a nation, with respect. Yes, Kim knew how to talk tough with the Americans, not by words, but by the language that the Americans understood, by possessing nuclear weapons, to be able to hit back.
Kim did not get this respect the easy way. Many leaders would have buckled under the daily attacks by the Americans. Saddam and Gaddafi were good examples of leaders that could not stand the pressure of the Americans and could not live to see another day. They were murdered by the Americans. Kim would be around for a long time. Trump and his hawks would quietly be saying to themselves that Kim is a worthy opponent in his own right. Making silly remarks about Kim is not going to be useful anymore.
Kim has gained great stature as a national leader that stood up to the Americans and survived and be respected by the Americans and the world.

Would Singapore invite China into CPTPP?




The anti China TPP, conceived with one specific purpose, to isolate China, went ahead without the Americans and formed a half past six grouping under a modified name called CPTPP. The non participation of America in such a trade grouping would have effectively rendered it a no go proposition. What is there left without the American market?

Under normal conditions, the remaining participants would go around hunting for an equivalent big economy to replace the Americans. The obvious choice was China. But the obvious choice was that China was the main enemy and should not be the choice. Grudgingly they went ahead, on a limb, to sign a trade pact that is as good as a non pact. The persistence of some members in the grouping not wanting to give up is understandable. Without China is the key agenda and going ahead without China is still like half a bird in the bush is better than none. China was excluded and they have achieved what they set out to do.

Hsien Loong is in China to attend the Boao Forum and would follow up with a working visit to China to meet Wang Yi and to discuss areas of cooperation. The test balloon floated, oops, oops, wrong choice of word, the main agenda is to invite China to join the lame duck CPTPP. At least this what I perceived from the statements he made in the media.

In Channel News Asia it was reported that "Mr Lee highlighted the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which was renamed after the withdrawal of the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which is a proposed FTA spearheaded by the ten ASEAN member states and involving six major trading partners, including China....that these two agreements will boost economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region and promote a seamless flow of goods, services and business that will benefit all countries.

“The CPTPP, which was recently signed, is an open and inclusive agreement. We welcome China, and others, to join the CPTPP when they are ready,” Mr Lee said....

Singapore will continue to support China’s constructive participation in the regional architecture as well as the international system,” Mr Lee said."

The last two sentences are as good as Singapore taking an initiative to invite China into the CPTPP. anyone reading it as otherwise? This trip to China could be ground breaking in Singapore China relationship. In a way the term test balloon could be quite appropriate in the sense that Japan would never agree to have China in the CPTPP. Did Hsien Loong speak to Abe and had his concurrence to brood this matter with China? If not, the suggestion is as good as cheap talk. Japan would definitely throw its weight down to oppose China's entry. China is not just a historical enemy of Japan, its admission into CPTPP would mean that Japan would no longer be the undisputed leader to call the shot and to drive the CPTPP against China's interests.

Not only that, there is the big bad wolf lurking in the dark corner, not in the CPTPP does not mean that the Americans have no say in China's entry into the CPTPP. The Americans would use their veto card to stop China and all the American cronies and little USAs would not be able to say no.

Would Singapore take a lead against the interests of Japan and the USA to invite China into the CPTPP? Does Singapore have the heft and influence to make this happen? Or would it be a case that Singapore has done its best but were blocked by other interested parties to keep China out of the grouping?

Let's see what comes out of this China trip.

In today's news, it was reported that Hsien Loong has inked a couple of MOUs with Li Keqiang on the BRI and to promote cross cultural cooperation. There was some mention of the RCEP but nothing about the CPTPP. Perhaps my reservations on Japan not going to agree to China's entry and the USA, though no longer a party, would also not permit China to be admitted to the CPTPP. The vacuum cannot be filled by China. Any other country will do but not China. So looks like Singapore is not going to be able to do a thing on this.

The despicable evil Empire strikes
After Israel struck at Syria, the despicable evil Empire and two rogue allies, the UK and France, followed suit. More than 100 missiles were fired at Syria. The latter claimed to have brought down 71 out of a total of 103 missiles entering Syria. Was it a consolation or a grandstanding that they were able to bring down so many of the attacking missiles with minimal damages?

On another note the Russians did not fire a shot as their bases in Syria were not attacked. Putin called for an emergency meeting at the UN to condemn the evil Empire and its rogue allies.

The whole picture is pathetic. The evil Empire and its rogue allies attacked and Syria and Russia only defended their positions. They did not strike back. In sum, Syria has presented itself as a punching bag, no more no less. It could not hit back or afraid to hit back. The message is very clear. The evil Empire can strike at its leisure with impunity. They can hit Syria any time they like without fear of being hit or a counter strike by Syria or Russia.

Such inaction on the part of Syria and Russia only encourages the evil Empire to be more trigger happy. The UK and France too would be more tempted to strike again. It is great fun to strike at the enemy with no fear of being hit back. Given such a state of affair, Syria can expect to be hit again and again and more rogue nations would be encouraged to join the evil Empire to practise target shooting from a safe range. And Israel would be sneaking in to bomb the daylight out of them when they feel like it.

This is the sad fate of a weak nation with no ability to hit back. Weakness is a cause for aggression. Weakness invites aggression. And the evil Empire and its rogue allies would not be kind or embarrass when the enemy is hapless. They would be most happy to keep the enemy as their punching bag.

Putin and Russia have proven that they could not protect their allies from attacks by the evil Empire and the wolf pack. Syria would be doomed and Assad would not last long as they are now sitting duck, on their own against the full military might of the evil Empire and its rogue allies.

What is the point of an emergency meeting at the UN? Even a condemnation for the UN would not mean a thing and would not save Assad. The evil Empire has spoken. To hell with the UN and the nations of the world. It would attack any country it deems fit with its rogue allies and the UN and the rest of the world could not do anything about it.
