Russia, China: “US-S Korea drills Must End”

by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor   … with  Press TV, Teheran

[ Note: The gamesmanship continues, with Trump making demands of N. Korea but ignoring what the NKs want. If talks could get started in Syria, after all the carnage that has gone on there in the past five years, why not N. Korea?

Maybe that’s because China’s sanctions on N. Korea did not work. They are never a quick fix anyway. But Putin and Xi Jinping have put a proposal on the table, a balanced one, asking N. Korea to end its nuclear and missile testing programs, and for the US and S. Korea to stop their war game exercises.

And they even asked for something they wanted, which was denuclearizing the Korean peninsula, plus getting the THAAD missiles out of S. Korea. That will be a tall order to get the US to do that, after all the trouble it went to get them there.

Better late than never for China and Russia to get involved as a team, as it is a regional major issue. They should have done this months ago, not waiting for a crisis, but taken the diplomatic initiative themselves with N. Korea.

At least now, what N. Korea wants will not get some publicity, as most in the West really don’t know, so they are just along for the ride on whatever their governments tell them. As for the UN resolution on no nukes for N. Korea, I am still waiting for them to tell that to Israel and the Likud terroristsJD ]

Russian President Vladimir Putin says Moscow and Beijing are working together to freeze Pyongyang’s military program but believe that Seoul and Washington must also put an end to their joint war games on the Peninsula.

Putin made the remarks while hosting his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping. The 2 leaders also said during a press conference on Tuesday that they’re considering different strategies of implementing their proposal. The joint plan was announced shortly after the North announced the successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The Russian foreign ministry has separately called on Pyongyang to abide by the United Nation’s resolution on missile testing. Moscow says nothing other than multilateral talks can help resolve the issue. Pyongyang stresses its missile program is merely defensive in nature.

    This piece by Jim Dean is laughable. Obviously, Mr. Dean knows little about history and international affairs. Let me point out that the North Koreans are illegitimate but the Israelis are not. Why?

    Because in the 1960’s North Korea signed an international treaty and made a pledge against using nuclear technology for making A-bombs. After that, they began receiving technical assistance for nuclear and atomic science from the West. But when the North Korean regime thought they had learned enough about nuclear technology from the West, they dropped out of the treaty and immediately went for making A-bombs. They hid and lied about their true intention and that’s why the West has every right to condemn North Korea and call them liars and bastards. It is illegal for North Korea to make A-bombs for any reason, defensive or offensive, using the very technology and assistance the West had provided to them under the treaty.

    Israel, on the other hand, has never signed such a treaty or made a false pledge. Thus, the UN has no legitimate basis against Israel’s nuclear technology. The difference is clear and crucial: North Korea cheated, while Israel did not. lol

    Phillip Haldane from facebook, you’re letting yourself get worked up by someone not thinking on your level. You’re going to drive yourself nuts in this blind and balkanized society if you keep letting it get to you.

    For such a short article, a must read.
    America’s sabre rattling needs to come to a halt. That and the propaganda campaign aimed at ignorant Americans.

    If the US withdrew from that area, the prostitution industry would collapse, and it is a LARGE part of the local economy. Each ‘madam’ supports numerous families. With some 200,000 US troops in the area to entertain, business is good.

    The big mouth at the UN is running her mouth again. Just imagine WWIII and all the electric power in the U.S. is OFF. Gas pumps won’t pump gas. No refrigeration. No lights. Grocery stores, banks, business, all closed. That would be fun wouldn’t it? Is your ammo dry? Have you cleaned your guns and rifles? How many guns can you handle at once? Can you shoot as well as Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook?

    Why should NK NOT have ICBMs and nukes of their own? After all there was never any peace treaty signed only an armistice and America has been at war with NK ever since. In fact all countries should have nukes of their own just to prevent America from bringing regime change,freedom and democracy to them. All small countries take note: if you don’t want the U.S. to invade and destroy your country , get some nukes of your own.
    Another observation is the increased aggression towards NK is being pushed by israel and its zio-neos in Washington simply because israel hates NK for its support of the Palestinian people and since America is israel’s bitch it will do what ever israel says.
    The last sentence of Jim’s editorial statement says it all.
