The Black Alliance for Peace is resolute in its opposition to United States-led imperialism, no make a difference which nations might be amongst the targets. We contend no justification exists for U.S. federal government interference in the affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), much better identified as North Korea.
President Donald Trump differs from his predecessors only with his intemperate language, threatening “fire and fury” and asserting that the U.S. armed service is “locked and loaded.”
The corporate media may perhaps lampoon his option of words, but they do not oppose the premise that this nation has the right to explain to North Korea and just about every other sovereign nation what it can and are not able to do.
Like the United States, North Korea has the suitable to examination and establish as several weapons as it chooses. North Korea does not will need an additional country’s authorization to greatly enhance its arsenal. Given the United States’ historical past of aggression, it would appear clever to do so. Any region deemed an enemy of the United States that does not have a powerful protection is in hazard of ending up like Iraq or Libya—invaded or wrecked by other indicates.
The U.S. armed service is the finest danger to environment peace. With extra weapons—nuclear and conventional—than any other nation in the world, the United States is armed with the capacity for full worldwide destruction multiple situations over.
The finest threat stemming from North Korea’s missile program comes from American reactions to it.
The war celebration is created up of Democrats and Republicans who were nearly unanimous in passing a monthly bill requiring financial sanctions not just towards North Korea, but in opposition to Iran and Russia as well.
These countries are guilty of only one particular factor. They assert their suitable to exist and to resist American hegemony.
It is the United States that escalates pressure with war video games that simulate an invasion of North Korea. At the very same time that North Korea is labeled a hazard, the Terminal Substantial Altitude Air Defense (THAAD) process is staying installed in South Korea. The THAAD poses a extremely real threat to peace in the location.
North Korea is not the only state focused by the United States in this most current disaster. The saber rattling is also directed in opposition to China, which like the relaxation of the earth, has terrific rationale to defend alone versus Trump and the war celebration duopoly. When the media assists the United States frighten the American general public unnecessarily, none of them will converse straightforward real truth. The reality is the United States does not have to do everything about North Korea. The us is not remarkable, nor is it indispensable. It should not have a lot more legal rights than other nations and should really not be allowed to threaten the entire world with destruction.
One would not know it from examining key American newspapers, but voices of cause exist close to the world. Most American reporters and op-ed writers feel to see North Korea as a problem to be solved rather of as a country to be engaged in a really serious and respectful manner. They intentionally obscure the heritage of America’s around destruction of North Korea from 1950 to 1953 and the truth that the truce hardly ever ended the war between the north and south on the Korean Peninsula.
North Korea is regarded as a bogeyman irrespective of whether it assessments missiles or not. It has been accused of everything from hacking into the Sony company personal computer techniques to building new malware viruses. Its president, Kim Jong-un, is dealt with like a joke or a demon. He seems to have picked what looks to be the only protection he has at his disposal—to make America consider 2 times about attacking his place.
The media may perhaps contact North Korea a “rogue” country, but that designation belongs to the United States. The United States has additional than 1,000 armed forces services around the world. It spends additional funds on defense than any other country and has additional conventional and nuclear weapons than any other nation. This should really not be normalized. Yet it is.
This monstrous scenario did not commence with Donald Trump. It has been creating for decades as the United States turned the world’s only superpower. Just about every American president exceeds the violence committed by predecessors and there is consensus amid the politicians and punditry that “might can make proper.” That is a patriarchal-white-supremacist-capitalist logic embodied in a national id. The goal may possibly be North Korea or China or Russia or Iran or Iraq or Syria or Somalia. Irrespective, the apparent objective of the United States’ worldwide coverage is for Full Spectrum Dominance, a doctrine which brings horrific conflict nearer to fact.
Trump’s rhetoric may well be far more dangerous, but he is just the hottest American president to make unilateral threats of nuclear assault.
Still, the United States is not the only one that can assert its strength. The Chinese govt has produced very clear that it will not stand by and allow the United States to attack North Korea. China’s capability to protect its ally is actual. The pundits and politicians who utter words and phrases just as unsafe as Trump’s are similarly culpable in bringing the earth to the brink of multi-national conflict and casualties.
Folks who say they want peace, claim to be anti-fascist, and communicate from white supremacy and patriarchy, have to stand with North Korea from threats from the United States. The Black Alliance for Peace joins with persons of conscience all about the entire world in condemning America’s aggressions and threats of aggression in opposition to North Korea and each and every other nation.

America’s hegemonic job in the article 9/11 period is the “Globalization of War” whereby the U.S.-NATO armed service device —coupled with covert intelligence functions, economic sanctions and the thrust of “regime change”— is deployed in all key locations of the environment. The threat of pre-emptive nuclear war is also utilised to black-mail international locations into submission.

This “Long War towards Humanity” is carried out at the peak of the most really serious financial crisis in fashionable background.
It is intimately relevant to a process of international financial restructuring, which has resulted in the collapse of national economies and the impoverishment of massive sectors of the Environment population.
The final goal is Environment conquest under the cloak of “human rights” and “Western democracy”.
“Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the most reasonable of all overseas policy commentators. He is a product of integrity in examination, his ebook provides an straightforward appraisal of the extreme risk that U.S. hegemonic neoconservatism poses to daily life on earth.”
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury
““The Globalization of War” contains war on two fronts: those people nations around the world that can possibly be “bought” or destabilized. In other cases, insurrection, riots and wars are used to solicit U.S. military services intervention. Michel Chossudovsky’s e book is a will have to study for anyone who prefers peace and hope to perpetual war, demise, dislocation and despair.”
Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defence
“Michel Chossudovsky describes globalization as a hegemonic weapon that empowers the fiscal elites and enslaves 99 p.c of the world’s populace.
“The Globalization of War” is diplomatic dynamite – and the fuse is burning quickly.”
Michael Carmichael, President, the Planetary Motion
