The Fire This Time: Trump’s Scorched Earth Diplomacy Burns Asia

Boom!  Trump’s China techwar takes out ZTE, as the major Chinese telecom equipment supplier is crushed by US penalties and closes its doors.  Boom boom!  Wut?  Trump dumbfounds the US punditocracy by offering to walk those ZTE penalties back.

The good news is there’s an explanation for the craziness.

The bad news is that Trump’s craziness on China looks like bad news for Iran, the European Union and the world…and is as American as apple pie.

America has been cocooned in comforting myths concerning its Korea and Iran non-proliferation strategies.

But for America to get what it wants…and thinks it needs…on the Korean peninsula and in Iran requires a lot of betrayal, dirty work, a short memory, and a complete regard of long term consequences.  That’s Donald Trump’s skill set.  And it’s embarrassing to admit it, but that’s pretty much the way America usually does its foreign policy.

The reality of our intentions, methods, and goals is misunderstood and ignored by the same pundits and media outlets paid to explain it.

But China, Iran, and the Koreas haven’t forgotten, they see history repeating itself, and they’ve spent billions on strategies to neutralize the nonstop US quest for hegemony.

We’ll find out in the next few months how that’s working.

General MacArthur’s Conspiracy to Start a War with China! New Documentary Release & Interview! For purchase at Newsbud Store or for Purchase or View via Amazon or Vimeo

The Korean War was a desperate and dubious battle in which the US was ready to try anything and everything to overcome its strategic and tactical disadvantages.  Biological weapons, nuclear weapons…and Douglas MacArthur’s plans for a strategic breakout via escalation of the Korean conflict to a regional war.  Everything was on the table.

Douglas MacArthur made the first US attempt to parlay a Korean crisis into an existential confrontation with the People’s Republic of China.  With the US milsec establishment, his ideas are more popular—and dangerous—than ever.  My documentary uses first hand testimony and declassified archives to finally reveal the truth behind this long-suppressed event.
