The Korean War May Never End

Tales of the American Empire | July 21, 2022

The Korean War that began in 1950 is technically ongoing because only an armistice was signed in 1953, rather than a peace treaty. American warmongers argue the United States must spend $8 billion a year to keep 30,000 troops there at a dozen bases until the war ends. This is only because the United States refuses to even discuss an end to the war because it will lose control of South Korea’s military if American Generals leave. In addition, part of the justification for the Pentagon’s massive annual budget is to defend South Korea, and those who profit off the perpetual American presence spend millions of dollars each year to lobby American congressmen to keep their racket going. The South Korean military is five times stronger than the North Korean military, and there are no Russian or Chinese soldiers based in North Korea. South Korea has twice the population and forty times the GDP of decrepit North Korea and has fortified its mountainous border. American troops are not needed there but powerful interests protect the status quo. Withdrawing just half the American troops would save the United States over three billion dollars a year and may allow a formal peace treaty to be signed.

    • I’m intrigued but do not have the focus or mentation to “look into.” Please at least give us a hint of elucidation!

      • China has been building enclaves in South Korea by bribing officials/politicians. The people living there come from mainland china. The Idea is that if someone lives long enough in Korea they become eligible to vote.
        And with this they will get politicians in power which will shift south Korea towards positive relations which china and negative with America.

        China is just playing the long game.

        • Thanks! Along another track, I’ve heard that “a lot” of the younger generation of SK simply don’t care about reunification with the DPRK. There are many currents and undertows in play, but — if I can dare make this metaphor — I consider the US to be the “riptide” that just won’t give up “ripping.”

          China sure is the master of the long game. Iran a reasonably close second? And, IMO, worldwide Zionism is the really-true ideology “gamer” intent on roiling the waters to its advantage and “full-spectrum global dominance” benefit…. To be crude, I keep hoping that Zionism will step on its circumcized d*ck…and, principally, reduced to being required to give the Palestinians surcease….

          • I call this an informed guess. But it looks like America is a in difficult position and is overextending its resources. In time something is going to give in and than the power balance will change. The repercussions of this event is not going to be pretty.

            If there is one aspect that china is get good in is. Social engineering trough social media etcetera/ While the majority to the world has abandoned god with reason of their own(Someone who says they are religious but are not practicing it is no different than someone who doesn’t believe). China is on its way into creating a Digital overlord. It will has access to so much information it will know you better than you do you. Because while the USA and Europe are restricted in their laws of doing things like this. China is not. At a certain point we will get into a position. Where a Digital overlord will tell you what to eat, drink, study, spend your time., And because it knows you better you will feel sated and ore open to manipulation. I personally don’t understand why anti-usa / anti-zionism are so over the top about China. But at this point it is going to be a matter of learning the hard way. The sentence I am expecting. “This is worse than when USA is in power, how could have let this happen. There were already signs about this.. ; We hated America more than we hated China, that is why we are in this situation.”

            And to get back to the main point I wanted to make with the paragraph. People who don’t care, or don’t have a strong opinion are “maleable”, China knows that and will use its resources to make South korea his.

            China does not have a sufficient track record call it “the master of the long game”, Zionism however does and Iran does come after that. For me Israel/Zionism and Iran have a symbiotic relationship. They can’t survive without having each other. And they both work together to hinder Turkey, for them nothing is more limiting than turkey establishing an hegemony in the region.

            • Very interesting! — thank you. I had a few moments of disquiet as I read along, but in the main, you’re…very interesting. (As just one “disquiet,” I believe it’s well established that the current virulent “political/militant Zionism” took root in 1897, only about 150 years ago and just a few years before the Bolshevik/Jewish revolution in Russia. Hitler/the “Holocaust” became simply a convenient, opportunistic tool along the way of Zionism’s invasion of the Middle East that, inter alia, took off in earnest via
              the Balfour Declaration, 1917. Thus, I can’t subscribe to a “long game” view of Zionism…China, on the other hand, has a 5,000-year history — interrupted tragically for about 200 years of western colonialism in the 18-1900s — that has resumed its “long march” of late. I wish I had the research/archival skills to find and post in this space the link to a wondrous historical review of China I came across about three years ago. It was the literal “eye opener” to ignorant me….)

              [BTW, Edgar Snow’s (1963?) “Red Star Over China” was another ‘moment’ for me….]

              Cheers!

              • I get where you are coming from. But I would say that Communist China and the Zionist movement are both new starting points of their new era. They both have thousands of years of historical experience behind them.

                However the experiences of theirs is different.
                The Zionist historical experience is nudging the authority figures in their favor to have a better standard of living and securing themselves, trough whatever means necessary.
                The Communist China historical experience is when weak or still building up its own army is to disturb alliances which are against him, by using bribes of whatever kind. Inciting the enemy to fight among themselves and than finally sweep them up and secure its dominion over them.

                As far as I am concerned. This was their modus operandi then and so far I see it still is.

                (btw I would like your comment if I could. But not using a WordPress account )
