Are We On The Cusp of A Golden Period of Korean Reconciliation?

(Don’t worry “real Americans”… our glorious leaders will snatch war from the jaws of peace soon enough)

from Eurasia Future

DPRK leader Kim Jong-un has praised the hospitality of Southern officials who hosted a large DPRK delegation celebrating the opening of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. He further stated that he seeks to continue to boost ties with Seoul in what looks to be the dawning of a new Sunshine Policy that could eclipse the last period of attempted North/South rapprochement in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

There are several factors at play in fomenting a new golden period of Pyongyang-Seoul relations…

Not Fit to Lead: Mike Pence ‘Takes a Knee’, Shows His True Colors Pyeong-Chang

(Scumbag Pence & wife sit during unified Korean anthem played at opening ceremony of this year’s Olympic games. Like a pouting little child who didn’t get the war he wanted, Pence sulked as he represented all of us back here in the “Shining City on the Hill”. His neocon buddies and that tired old war-monger Hillary Clinton would be proud. For the rest of us? Not so much)

by Patrick Henningsen, 21st Century Wire

This has to be one of the most disturbing scenes imaginable in modern politics. It was revealing, and it showed a level of shallowness which is almost unprecedented for any world leader in living memory, east or west.

Yesterday, as American Vice President Mike Pence was basking in the international spotlight, he made the puzzling decision not to stand when they played the Unified Korean anthem.

Undoubtedly, this was a very important moment in history, when North and South Korea entered the Olympic Stadium during the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony in Pyeong-Chang, South Korea, as the two countries proudly marched in the Parade of Nations – under one Unified Korean flag.

And what did the US high representative do? He did a Kaepernick. He took a knee…

Aegis Ashore Missile Test Fails Again: Looks Like Hawaiian Scare Drill Was for Naught

by Scott Creighton

A couple of weeks ago I reported on the Hawaiian missile scare that sent fathers out into the streets to lower their kids down to the relative safety of the resort island’s sewer systems (“It“, “C.H.U.D.” and “Flukey the Fluke-worm” not withstanding)

It was my hypothesis that the “accident” was caused by a test of the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense System being run for the benefit of a certain Japanese high ranking military official who was here at the time of the “accident” evaluating that system for potential purchase by the Japanese government. Since it was a hard sell to the people of that country (they kind of balk at the thought of building up a huge military after that whole “Hirosima and Nagasaki” thing you know) our paid-off puppets in their military had to come over here and watch a demonstration of the product in order to go home and give it his per-ordained seal of approval.

I guess everything went okay with the test except for the couple hundred thousand Hawaiian folks who stained their shorts and that one little girl who was most likely torn to pieces by competing interests in the sewer tunnels that day. Hope she put up a good fight.

But the way the Pentagon looks at it, she was merely collateral damage… “greater good” and all that, don’t ya know. “National security”… “freedom and democracy”… she had to be dumped in the sewer “over there so little white girls aren’t dumped in the sewer over here”… pick your marketing cliches as you will.

The Aegis Ashore deal is worth about 2 billion dollars and since our military is run by contractors like Lockheed Martin these days, it made sense to me to take them at their word. I mean, after the Global Banking Cabal and our Big Energy/Oil Cartel, they are our most important “national interest” are they not?

Tokyo “hoped to confirm the system’s performance” so “Lockheed said it plans to conduct missile engagement simulations and live tracking demonstration in the first half of 2018.”

So yes, Lockheed announced plans to run a simulation on behalf of the buyer and then do a live tracking demonstration to show their client-state client just how wonderful this system is in terms of knocking down those dreaded North Korean missiles we’ve all heard so much about this past year (since the new leadership in South Korea didn’t want THAAD and had to be convinced he did)

And guess what? Here we are in the “first half of 2018” and Lockheed Martin (the public/private entity formerly known as the “U.S. military”) made good on their promise. Unfortunately, you can’t say the same for Aegis Ashore:

A live-fire missile defense test conducted early Wednesday in Hawaii was unsuccessful, Pentagon officials acknowledged Thursday.

It did not meet our objectives,” said Dana White, a Pentagon spokeswoman…

The Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Navy sailors manning the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Test Complex conducted a live-fire missile flight test using a Standard-Missile 3 Block IIA missile launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai, Hawaii, Wednesday morning,” Wright said.

Citing unidentified Pentagon sources, CNN reported the status of the test had not been announced in part because of the “sensitivities surrounding North Korea’s participation in the upcoming Olympic games and continuing tensions with leader Kim Jong Un.” Stars and Stripes

I wonder what they mean by “it didn’t meet our objectives”

I hope Malaysia Airlines still has all of their planes accounted for. Hate to have CNN spend another 6 months pushing another set of lies like they did to cover-up Flight MH370. 😉

BREAKING: North and South Korea uniting under one flag for Olympics

(Neoliberalism is a mental illness and it is high time we started to understand that very simple fact. Watch just how quickly these sociopaths try to scuttle the prospect of peace on the Korean peninsula with some false flag terrorism. It’s not a question of “if” as much as it is one of “when”)

from the Duran

With less than a month to go before the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea, leaders of the North and South have agreed to form a joint Olympic hockey team and march together at the opening ceremony under one unified flag, as reported by the AP…

Japan Terrorizes Their Population with “Incoming Missile” Psyop on Behalf of Aegis Ashore Deal

After Hawaiian terror psyop, Japan does the SAME THING with their own fake ‘incoming missile” alert. These are acts of STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM directed at their own people. Our people.

Two Koreas to talk PyeongChang on Wednesday, may march under ‘Korean Unification’ flag at Olympics opening

by Jung Min-kyung , from the Korea Herald

Kwon Hyok-bong, director of the performing arts bureau at the culture ministry and the North‘s chief delegate, left, and Lee Woo-sung, a senior official at the Seoul‘s culture ministry and the South‘s chief delegate, step into a meeting room in Tongilgagk in the northern side of Panmunjeom, for a working-level talks on Monday. (Yonhap)

South Korea has agreed to North Korea’s proposal of holding working-level talks Wednesday at the truce village of Panmunjeom to further discuss its participation in the PyeongChang Olympics, the South’s Unification Ministry said Monday.

Seoul’s sports minister also said if the two sides agree on a joint entrance at the opening ceremony, the athletes would march under the “Korean Unification” flag — a white flag with a blue shape of the Korean Peninsula in the center.

The North’s move, which came earlier in the day, came in response to South Korea’s offer Friday to arrange formal talks. Seoul said it would send a three-member delegation led by Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung. “South Korea has agreed to North Korea’s proposal to hold working-level talks at 10 a.m. at the Peace House (in Panmunjeom) on Jan. 17, through the South-North communication channel at 4 p.m.,” the ministry said in a statement.

The North will send a three-member delegation headed by Jon Jong-su, vice chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country, added the ministry. The CPRC handles inter-Korean affairs within the North Korean government…

Korean Reunification or Killing Sunshine: Part One – Flashback to Flight 858 and the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul

by Scott Creighton

(the following is part one of a two part series on the current reunification effort taking place in Korea formerly known as the Sunshine Policy.)

What’s old may be new again.

Representatives from South Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) have met and agreed to allow a delegation from the DPRK to attend the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea next month. It is being reported they also may have begun negotiations to reopen their shared free trade zone and start to allow relatives separated by the split between the two Koreas to visit one another again.

Representatives from the DPRK wanted to broadcast live the entire meeting between the two sides but the South Korean delegation apparently didn’t want that much transparency so they only opened part of the discussion up to the press.

This website (American Everyman) has a long history of supporting the renewal of the Sunshine policy in Korea and calling out the powers of the Deep State in their long standing efforts to keep such a unification from ever happening.

Today, with the prospect of peace breaking out on the Korean peninsula so near, it’s appropriate to look back at the Deep State’s history of destabilizing and sabotaging previous efforts in the past.

Because if we have learned one thing over the years it’s that the Deep State isn’t very creative and can always be counted on snatch war out of the jaws of peace whenever possible… where ever possible. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a neoliberal apologist for the Deep State voicing his opinion about how this will probably work out:

We know how this ends, even if that ending is so horrifying we dare not even think about it.

Unfortunately, if history is any indicator, we do know how this ends.
