The US is going to take unilateral action against North Korea, and behind this unilateral action would be the Japanese, all wanting to get the two Koreans to kill and destroy each other. And the South Koreans are just as eager to do the necessary, and the Americans and Japanese are so glad that this would be so, and there will not be any Koreans left on the devastated Korean Peninsula after an open conflict.
On paper, superficially, the South Koreans are just as mad as the North Koreans, so happy and eager to kill the North Koreans for the Americans and the Japanese. How real is this? Are the two Koreans really so mad to want to destroy each other for the benefits of their Number One enemy, Japan? Sensible and reasonable people would not think so. The two Koreans could not be so mad and stupid to want to do so. But all the sabre rattlings are pointing to an eminent war of unimaginable proportion that would see to the end of the Korean Civilisation.
The Americans, in command of the South Korean armies, had just flown two B1 bombers armed with nuclear bombs over the Korean peninsula as a show of force. Hopefully Kim Jong Un would be really mad and fire at the B1s and scatter the nuclear radio active waste all over the Korean peninsula and across the Sea of Japan. Unfortunately Kim Jong Un is not that mad to do so. But if an accident like a trigger happy Taiwanese NCO pulling the trigger, and all hell would break loose.
The Americans are trying to use force against the North Koreans, while talking about peace. God bless the two Koreans, for they may not be around after such a war. Would they have the wisdom to avoid killing themselves or would the Americans and the Japanese decide their fate and existence as a Civilisation of Korean people?
War is not funny when nuclear weapons could be use. Would anyone be able to stop the Americans from starting another war in Asia? All the silly American allies must be happy to have a war in Asia so that they can have more dead heroes to brag about. For sure this time the Philippines would not be involved under Duterte. He remembered the massacres of hundreds of thousands of Pinoys by the Americans in the early 1900s and would likely be asking the Americans to pay for compensation and reparation for the slaughtering of Pinoys during the invasion and colonization of the Philippines. He has started to ask the American soldiers in Mindanao to go home. He has cancelled joint sea patrol with the Americans in the South China Sea to deescalate tension with China.
Duterte is very clear in what is best for the Philippines. He would not allow the Philippines to be used as a sacrificial lamb to serve American interests. He would not allow the Pinoys to die for the American Empire and turn the Philippines back into another American colony. There is national pride in this man.
Duterte must be very careful for his safety for antagonizing the Empire. Be prepared for a military coup to topple him or an assassination bullet. There are many Pinoys, among the drug lords that could be easily persuaded to do the job for the Americans or a false flag event to knock him out. This is the risk for defying the Dark Side.
