Yes, the Trump administration is lying about North Korea. In fact, the US has been lying about North Korea since the beginning of time. The Trump administration is just following the lies that its predecessors had relentlessly repeated.
Bush branded North Korea (along with Iraq and Iran) an “axis of evil” in 2002 and repeated the mantra in 2008, five years after he literally created chaos in Iraq and sent a six-trillion dollar bill to the American people who were still trying to feed their families. Many of those people have lost virtually everything, largely due to the economic collapse that followed the Iraq war. Bush didn’t give a flip about those people.
According to the “Bush doctrine,” North Korea, Iraq, and Iran were deliberately starving their citizens, exporting terror virtually all over the world, and covertly collecting biological, chemical and nuclear weapons in order to bring about complete destruction in the Western world and indeed the Middle East.
“I will not wait on events while dangers gather,” Bush said then, “I will not stand by as peril draws closer and closer. The United States will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.” Bush said during his State of the Union address:
“North Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction, while starving its citizens.
“Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror, while an unelected few repress the Iranian people’s hope for freedom.
“Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror. The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax and nerve gas and nuclear weapons for over a decade. This is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens – leaving the bodies of mothers huddled over their dead children.
“By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.”
In 2013, the Telegraph even published a ridiculous article saying that Kim Jong-un intended to invade Washington, California, Hawaii, and even Texas! We can ignore those people for now.
At any rate, Bush, who also had Syria in mind when he uttered the “axis of evil” phraseology, obviously didn’t come up with that term, despite the fact that it was played over and over in the media. Bush got it from the Israeli regime, which posited ad infinitum that Iran and Iraq in particular were enemies of the whole world.
Things have recently gotten a little complicated for New World Order agents. They have been postulating that North Korea is not only a regime that needs to be expunged, but it has been building nuclear weapons—and America, of course, must respond.
Sure, North Korea has been making a lot of noise, but does that give America a license to start a war? And, as Bruce Cumings of the University of Chicago has pointed out, don’t we all know by now that America has been provoking North Korea since the beginning of time?
At any rate Reuters, a largely Zionist outlet, blew everything out of proportion when they reported:
“U.S. experts who have been forecasting an imminent North Korean nuclear test said on Tuesday they were surprised when they viewed their latest satellite images of the country’s nuclear test site and saw volleyball games under way.
“With tension mounting between Pyongyang and Washington, analysts had thought they would see activity suggesting preparations for an underground explosion at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site and were not expecting what the photos, taken on Sunday by a commercial satellite, revealed.”
Volley ball game at a nuclear site? Are North Korean officials that stupid? Or is the New World Order dead wrong again about North Korea? It is not rational at all to say that North Korean officials are allowing people to play volleyball at a nuclear site.
One must conclude that New World Order agents have been so aggressive about regime change all over the world that they cannot construct a coherent argument. They have become pinheads. And pinheads are all over Washington now. For example, Lindsey Graham is now conniving with Trump and saying that “I am like the happiest dude in America right now.” Why? Graham says that Trump is now one of them:
“We’ve got a president and a national security team that I’ve been dreaming of for eight years. In 80 days he’s done more to correct the world, President Trump, than Obama did in eight years. We sent a letter to our good buddy, the Ayotollah. ‘Hey, knock it off. You’ve got this Iranian nuclear deal, you may be complying with it, but you’re also destroying the Mideast. You’re the largest state sponsor of terrorism. You captured our sailors against international law, humiliated them. You’re firing missiles in violation of U.N. resolutions that even the Russians voted for. So we’re putting you on notice.”
For those of you who still think that Trump is about “America First” and keeping American soldiers out of the Middle East and around the world, then I have one thing to say to you: keep dreaming. Trump himself would agree with me here. With respect to the so-called North Korea’s aggression, Trump responded:
“We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier, that I can tell you.”
How is that for “America First”? Trump again twitted: “North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.”
Trump wouldn’t solve the problem through dialogue and diplomatic solutions. He would solve it by annihilating North Korea altogether. And that again is entirely consistent with what the Neoconservatives have been saying for years.
