‘China Must Be Destroyed’

There’s an old story from Roman history about Cato the Elder trolling the peaceniks in the Roman Senate by dropping figs on the floor.

The hook was that the figs were from Carthage, Rome’s rival for supremacy in the Mediterranean.

And the figs were fresh, because Carthage was only three days’ sail from Rome.  And they were magnificent, because Carthage had survived its century of confrontation with Rome to become both bigger and wealthier than Rome.

This displeased Cato the Elder, who wanted Carthage to remain in an eternally submissive status to Rome.

So, he ended every speech in the Roman Senate with the statement, “Carthaginem esse delendam” : “Carthage must be destroyed”.  And guess what: because of Cato’s determination, and the fig stunt and, the fact that Carthage was the main center of agricultural and economic wealth in the Mediterranean not yet controlled by Rome, Carthage was destroyed in 146 B.C.

The Roman armies razed Carthage to the ground, sold the surviving population into slavery, annihilated its written culture…and Rome got a few more centuries at the top of the heap!

Well, today it’s Sinisem esse delendam: China must be destroyed.  Instead of Cato the Elder, we got Marco Rubio.  Instead of figs, we got Huawei smart phones.  And we’ve got Indo Pacific Command thirsting for another couple decades as top dog in the western pacific.

And we have increasingly open and unambiguous calls for the PRC to be destabilized both from the so-called left and right wings of American politics…which are pretty much all right wing nowadays.

The last few days have seen open calls for China destabilization by George Soros, the activist patron of liberal internationalists in the Democratic Party, and William Kristol, the deep thinker of the GOP establishment who gave us Sarah Palin.

And the fulcrum for the U.S. effort is, as always, Huawei, the cutting edge Chinese telecommunications company.

The China war is real.   We’re now in the Cold War phase and it’s going to get hotter and hotter.  Count on it.  It’s the plan.

Special China Watch reports on Korea

Perhaps no foreign affairs issue in recent history has been so thoroughly misunderstood as the backstory of U.S. engagement with North Korea.  That’s because U.S. machinations relating to North Korea are about as dirty, unsuccessful, and embarrassing as can be imagined.

Here’s your chance to understand the context of U.S.—North Korea relations: a trio of special reports I have prepared on the untold story of U.S. duplicity and failure on North Korea.  Unknown, that is, to Western observers who rely on the selective historical memories of American policy makers and pundits; but deeply known and felt reality to North Korean and Chinese policymakers for whom U.S. bad faith and betrayal is the default setting in Korean affairs.

The Deep State Plan to Sabotage Korean Peace (full episode available on Youtube)

John Bolton’s presence on the White House staff is a red flag to Chinese and North Korean policymakers.  That’s because John Bolton’s core competency is sabotaging the stated and perhaps genuine intentions of the President of the United States to pursue peace on the Korean Peninsula, and substitute “active measures” to promote regime change. 

One of the most consequential failures in modern U.S. diplomacy (or anti-diplomacy) if you prefer, was a disastrous foray into financial secondary sanctions targeting North Korea during the George W. Bush years when John Bolton ruled the North Korea regime-change roost.  The sanctions gambit—targeting a tiny, China affiliated bank in Macau—backfired and literally birthed North Korea’s first atomic bomb.

It’s history that the Chinese and North Koreans know deep in their bones, even as the U.S. government tried to deny and ignore the reality of the fiasco.  To understand the deep distrust and reflexive caution of Kim Jong Un and Xi Jinping in dealing with the United States, you need to know about the Banco Delta Asia gambit of 2005.

My Asia Brief audio report on the history Americans don’t know… but drives current events on the Korean peninsula.  Resentment at the sacrifice of Korea to U.S. Cold War ambitions and the Japanese alliance runs deep…and Koreans in the North and South are finally able to do something about it.

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.
