Shh. Trump sends “armada”, doesn’t know what happened to last armada.

Call it a fleet, a flotilla, an aircraft carrier strike group, or what it is, a belligerent embarrassment of gunboat diplomacy, but to invoke the archaic “armada” is to overlook Admiral Nelson of Trafalgar Square. Trump might as well dub his flagship Titannic. Go on Trump, do it.

Who spends so much on weapons that they can’t feed or house their people?

North Korea’s leader as a mere toddler -that’s rich. Kim Jong Un is the preeminent adversary of our Pentagon. This New Yorker cover is wishful thinking I suppose if also insulting to our own sense of shame. The New Yorker depicts junior Kim’s military success as child’s play, though he continues to hold Western gunboat diplomacy in abeyance. The old saw is that North Korea has been starved of economic prosperty owing to its regime’s unfettered militarism. Sound more like someone else you know? The US can’t house its poor, can’t feed its children, can’t rebuild its infrastructure, nor provide safe drinking water to disfavored urban populations. The US spends more on war than everyone else put together. It can’t provide healthcare. Even Kim Jong Un can do that. Likewise Un doesn’t start wars, or expend ordnance to require the manufacture of more. North Korea’s war footing isn’t our capitalist sinkhole for weapons industry profiteers. That baby with the warheads would be better played by an average American preadolescent, shortly to be a PTSD’d amputee.

Bomb a Hiroshima plus a Nagasaki if you want the world to fear your nukes

APPARENTLY, nuclear club initiates have to demonstrate their bombs on real victims to convince other nations that their WMDs are real. How unfortunate for North Korea that its hydrogen bomb detonation was only a test. Naturally a bully like the US can taunt its pipsqueak adversary, asserting it doesn’t believe Piongyang’s claims of a successful nuclear blast. The US can find credibility in hoaxes like yellowcake, WMDs, or centrifuges, but a real hydrogen bomb, they have to see to believe. In WWII, Japan’s Kamikazi pilots and suicide Banzai charges were the pretext for immolating the civilian city of Hiroshima with an Atom Bomb. Americans are told it was to teach Japan the futility of resistance. The real reason we dropped the bomb of course was to show our Communist rivals that the United States of Capitalism had innovated a weapon of unimaginable power and look what it can do! Americans like Show & Tell, not just tell. We bombed Nagazaki because we had made two bombs.

Little bully Colorado Springs tries to incite war with North Korea

Belligerent pip-squeak Colorado Springs is doing all it can to rouse our nation to attack North Korea. First our ignoble congressman Doug “Tar Baby” Lamborn leaks a Defense Department document that announces North Korea has nuclear capability enough to strike the continental US, which most of the intelligence community denies, then it’s announced that four US cities are being targeted, among them COLORADO SPRINGS, and get this, they point out, it’s marked in the wrong place on the map. North Korea doesn’t even know where Colorado Springs is, these warmongers laugh, as if anyone in the world, least of all North Korea, cared.

The head up its own ass Empire USA has well earned getting itself nuked by North Korea

images-42— Let’s see now? The US government ignores threats from a country it has waged war against continuously now for 6 and 1/2 decades and so do the American people themselves??? Are we collectively stupid or what? It is the all brainwashed, head up its own ass Empire USA versus the ‘Hermit Kingdom’, as the corporate war mongering US press likes to call North Korea. And Dennis Rodman seems to be the only person with half a brain about him in this potentially highly radioactive basketballed out fiasco! We are a comic book Empire on the flop. images-43

I don’t know about you, but I think that the North Korean Head of State might just be about to demand an end to the endless war the American people and their multiple governments have waged against his people. It all started way back when the US beat Japan in WW2 and then immediately put the Japanese occupiers of Korea in charge of the US puppet government set up by the US military on that peninsula for the already enslaved Koreans. Seems like Americans couldn’t speak Korean but some of the Japanese mass murderers could, so that meant the world to our US ‘boys’ back then. Boy were we really democracy promoting folk???? Hardly. ‘Our’ troops were into PERMANENTLY occupying the Korean Peninsula though we have never belonged there even one second at all.

After waging war on Koreans for all this time killing millions of them, perhaps we might take seriously that some Koreans might just be beginning to now be getting a little bit pissed off about what we enabled the US government to do, and that they might even actually send some nuclear bombs to Seoul and Tokyo, huge US government allied populations, and maybe even send a nuclear warhead or two to Honolulu and Seattle just for ourselves… perhaps? I would take this possibility much more seriously than the US public seems to be doing, as American sheeple are always in the lead to not noticing a thing about current events in the world we all inhabit together.

How to solve the Korean-US governments nuclear standoff? It is simple. Just stop waging war on Korea, Americans. Go figure…. but it’s simply the right thing to do. Get on board a little gun control, Dopehead America! Don’t let your guns do you in.

That’s no mystery woman, that’s my wife

Curious the class distinction made with media persons of interest. Mrs Kim Jong Un is appointed an air of notoriety by nature of having been previously unidentifiable to the West. There’s not much mystery to a retroactive mystery. So what about every other North Korean? Mystique surely does not apply to anyone not already on the media’s social register. But that surely says something about the “made” personalities of celebritydom. If the corporate media doesn’t know their provenance, say, back to their apprenticeships at Disney, then those potential loose canons will remain without celebrity title until their personalities are known entities ie bondable to the system’s image of itself. Conversely, look at the treatment of the otherwise scandalous Tetra-pack heir melodrama.

Unfamiliar to the general public, a billionaire Tetra heir lost his wife, her body went undiscovered for five days, remember that headline? Eventually we learned she was lost to drugs. The billionaire heir ignored her body after her overdose, himself still on a binge, but you wouldn’t get to that side of the story until five paragraphs into it. Even though the police only came upon the scene because the heir addict had been interrupted driving erratically. If the couple hadn’t been philanthropists, the headline would have told of billionaire addicts, given their names where not household variety. Their chief interest in philanthropy was to support an addiction recovery program, it turns out obviously a kind of tithing in lieu of quitting drugs themselves. So their philanthropy was a whitewash as much as the obit and police blotter was in the end.

A sort of obituary for Kim il Jung

So the right wing retards who run the Gazette, KOAA and of course FOX news are saying that the “whole world’ had been terrified by Mr Kim’s nukes. Here’s another take: We had a senile B-movie actor who was so eaten up with Alzheimers dementia that he actually believed that he was a war hero even though he had never served in the military… with his paws on the keys to Nuclear Hell. Replaced by a professional liar named George HW Bush, between the both of them made the declaration that the U.S., which has more nukes and, incidentally, more chemical and biological weapons than the rest of the world COMBINED and has the record of being the only nation on earth to have used all three classes of WMDs in war AND are the only government which has used both biological (smallpox) and chemical weapons against Americans… had the sole discretion to declare war including the use of WMDs against any country on earth.

Their disciples still call that “nationalism” only, nationalism by definition has a built in recognition of the sovereignty of every other nation, even and especially those who don’t have a chance of taking on the “Great Powers” in full-out war. Nations like Iraq and North Korea. National sovereignty for only one nation and its Vassal States (Britain, South Korea, Taiwan, the New Iraq, Israel and all the other puppet dictatorships) is properly called “Imperialism”.

Then throw in a recent Regime nominally headed by GHW Bush’s retarded son and namesake, also a chickenhawk, and a whole slew of right wing lunatics who believe that God, Himself, gave them a mandate to either conquer the entire world or burn it to a cinder.

I’d suspect that even with the Right Wing Puppet News organizations like Fox and KOAA and the Gazette having given themselves the authority to speak for “the entire world”, most of the world would be more worried that the U.S. will start another unprovoked war of conquest and subsequently destroy the entire world.

It’s not like they haven’t given themselves the Might Makes Right “authority” to do so.

Right Wing running with scissors on the Accidental Missile reports.

A couple of linked together “patriot” and “minutemen” websites said “Mexicans launch missile off California coast.”
Nice racist touch, there, Bubbas!
They weren’t accusing the government of Mexico, either, just “mexicans” as in “anybody with swarthy skin and a Spanish surname/accent” This mirrors Lou Dobbs preposterous statements on the same websites and similar ones, that “mexicans” had shot his house while he wasn’t home, no witnesses, and no suspects. If they don’t know who if anybody did it, how would he know it was “mexicans”? There’s a lot of people who don’t like his racist bullshit. Cops aren’t investigating it as a shooting, just a “report”.
Then there’s the notion that Obama rigged the missile launch “accident” as part of a Socialist plot to disarm. Yeah, right.
First, O Stupid ones, Obama couldn’t pass for Socialist even compared to Republicans. Or some hippie peacenik, I mean, come the hell on, military spending and hostilities have INCREASED, which should delight the ChickenHawk squadron no end, but apparently not.
The only accurate observation they’ve made so far is that he’s darker skinned than Bush. Gee, nothing racist about that.
Then, there’s the “North Korean Submarine” angle, which would make sense, American warships have been test firing missiles in “international” waters just off the coasts of China and N. Korea, but only in a non-provocative way. If it WAS then what the Hell special right do the DumFoxer chumps have to get their knickers in a knot about some other Sovereign Nation running a missile test in international waters.

And why don’t they have their panties in a wad over Mr Bush and his demon-spawn extended family still spending blood money made when Grandpa Prescott Bush made a Faustian deal with the Nazi Regime, financing them and smuggling arms for them, even AFTER they sank the Reuben James in American Territorial waters?

Back to the non-existent Socialism, what, didn’t the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics also have a missile program? Aren’t they forgetting a few tiny details in their racist dumbass propaganda there?

Life follows art, “99 Luft-Balluns” and Seoul, ROK

This is what we’ve waited for, this is it Boys, this is WAR!
The balloons weren’t released from North Korea, but from a Korean version of Elementary School. Do Chiang. Which is also the name of a Tae Kwon Do school. That’s the only way I know it.

Apparently some folks witnessed what they thought were small parachutes drifting into the trees and panicked, dialed Nine-Eleven.

Media lets the photograph lie for itself

obama speaks against black vacuum
What is this for a photograph? Obama in the dark. Obama speaks in a vacuum. Facing nothing. Abandoned. An opinion of one. Actually, this is the composition which the NYT used to frame Kim Jong-il of North Korea addressing provocations by the South Korean navy. An opinion which the western media wants to suggest has no friends: Oh yeah? You and whose army?

Here’s the original photo. Put yourself in this manipulative frame. Do you look irrelevant? Hello? Where have you been, outer space?

North Korea reacts to tensions with South

Can Clinton charm Obama into freeing civilians falsely accused in Guantanamo?

You’d think the international community could have thought to do it. Ambassadorship 101: send convivial fat man to make entreaties. The US has enjoyed outrageous success springing its non-combatant innocent- trespasser media-propagandists from Iran and North Korea. The so-called axes of evil have granted special pardons to accommodate air-brained Americans, lest our public opinion start crying for blood. Evil has more grace than the US has shown for its innocent detainees in Guantanamo, which it force-feeds through hunger-strikes as they protest indefinite and wrongful internment. But when our enemies release their captives, we call it saving face.

Now of course Iran is faced with the capture of three more itinerants, hikers Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Joshua Fattal. And lo, Bauer is now revealed to be a journalist for New American Media. Easily confused with Laura Ling and Euna Lee’s “Current Media LLC?”

[UPDATE 1: NOW TWO of the hikers are known to be journalists, having reported about Genocide in Darfur and the Golan Heights, among other US State Dept approved stories.
UPDATE 2: NOW media mouthpieces are expressing fears that delicate information carried by Laura Ling and Euna Lee about North Korea escape routes was uncovered by their NK captors. Meaning… uh, Ling and Lee were actually working against NK interests after all?]

The three –how improbable– Berkeley grads were apprehended where the US military has long admitted to be operating special forces. Are we to expect that all US commandos do not have a media-ready cover? What are the Delta Forces but American recreation nuts, crazy for outdoor hardship and manly games with knives and balaclavas?

Only Burma stand obstinate, determined that Mormon-playing-idiot John Yettaw, is more a bumbling Hasenfus than an Aung San Suu Kyi groupie. The bumbling, epileptic ideologue archetype serves America well when its intelligence agents are apprehended. Was Yettaw trying to spring Suu Kyi, or was he there to trip the wires and send the iconic freedom worker to prison?
