Why You Can NOT Believe The Media On North Korea

11 Apr

From the Dollar Vigilante we learn that – exactly like the fabricated “rumour of the century” putting words in the mouth of Iranian President Ahmadinejad – the political parrots in the media are now telling us massive porkies about North Korea too –

One could be forgiven for thinking that some high-ranking Western sociopaths want to lay the “public opinion” groundwork for another dramatic, live-on-TV, all-out military conflict – a la Iraq – in another instalment of the so-called “War On Terror”.

Must be getting boring for them, working behind the scenes with drones, and sponsoring “insurgents” in “popular uprisings” against their leaders in Egypt, Libya, Syria, et al.

And of course, the media are always happy to oblige, by reporting whatever cut-n-paste press release comes across their desks from on high.

Only one organisation in Australia is viewed, statistically speaking, as totally untrustworthy: the media. The scoop in the 2010 Australian Election Survey, published this week, wasn’t so much that the messenger finished last but that the gap between us and the political institutions we are supposed to hold to account was so wide.

Only 17 per cent of voters polled at the last election had confidence in the press…

    Is the word democracy to be taken from Greek or Latin?
    The word Democracy comes from Ancient Latin democratis meaning “absolute, total fascist rule” and then backward engineered in the 16th Century CE to appear sourced from Ancient Greek from Latin demos meaning “remove, withhold, take away” and –cratis meaning “right of rule; sticks of even size used to mete corporal punishment; official name of fasces (bundle) of bound sticks and axe representing power of rule under Roman law”.
    The above statement may be correct.
    demo, demere, dempsi, demptus
    take away from
    take/cut away/off,
    cratis, cratis
    bundle of brush, fascine
    framework, network, lattice wickerwork

    The trouble with a business owned media is that it is not divorced from propaganda to either get its own way (for the benefit of its wealthy owners) or the government for reasons unknown. What we can all depend on is that the media is NOT INDEPENDENT and often acts as a propaganda machine rather than an independent observer. The Gulf War and non existent “weapons of mass destruction” should make this assertion crystal clear to all of us.

    Why do you qualify it with the Korean debacle? Nothing from the media can be taken at face value, but the trick is determining what is real, what is not and what the agenda is. Justifying a war in the court of public opinion is always considered important by governments in order to get “buy-in” from the citizens. In this case it’s hard to get a feel for the agenda, as North Korea has nuclear weapons.

    Also, it’s hard to see where this fits in with the misnomered “arab spring” (only if you are a wannabe islamic fundamentalist tyrant could it be called a spring). The arab spring appears to be a lefty version on the war on terror, but North Korea is a more traditional enemy. I suspect that the arab spring is a manifestation of the left’s alliance made in hell with islamists, overturning the traditional opinion that an allied despot is better than islamic fundamentalists. I fear Obama is helping unleash the beast that will not easily be put back in its cage.

    Going to war with North Korea is a dangerous game, and i don’t the current lot of world leaders are up to a challenge such as this.

    The Obama administration has adopted a policy of provocation and escalation when it comes to North Korea, Brian Becker, the director of the anti-war coalition ANSWER told RT, the ultimate goal of the approach is not war but regime change.

    RT: North Korea continues to maintain it’s on the brink of war with the South. How close are we now to a nuclear show down?

    Brian Becker: There is no place in the world that’s more militarized and more of a tinder box than the Korean Peninsula. The US has 25,000 troops there, the US has brought in the B-52 nuclear capable planes to simulate the bombing of N. Korea. The US, two weeks ago brought the B-2 bomber which can drop 30,000 pound bombs as well as nuclear bombs. It just gave 200 bunker buster bombs to South Korea. It’s changed the military shape of its alliance with S. Korea in a way making it more ominous to N. Korea.

    And every time N. Korea does anything to show its determination to defend itself or to make the perception at least that it can defend itself, then the US treats N. Korea as the ultimate provocateurs. So both sides have climbed the escalation ladder in a very tense part of the world and I think we’re at a very dangerous point. Right now anything could trigger some limited military conflict which could quickly escalate.

    RT: Who’s responsible for the situation ending up where it is now?

    BB: I think we can see, and I think the American people don’t know it, because the thorough going propaganda campaign has been quite effective in the United states, but the Obama administration, unlike the Clinton administration in the last months of the second term where it tried to normalize relations with Korea, sent Madeline Albright then Secretary of State there to meet Kim Jung-il. There seemed to be a thaw. The Obama administration has taken the Bush administration policy of provocation, escalation, increased tensions to a whole new level…….”

    The Western Banking Military Industrial Oligarchs have shares in all the major media, military,oil,chemical, pharma, banks, and resource Corps.We are the modern serfs.They control our Govts and our money supply.

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely and the world is on the cusp of total financial collpase leading to WW3.

    China initially allowed our banks into their country but they still create 80% of their new money via their Govt banks.This is one of the reasons why China can grow at 12% while we are lucky to get 2-3%.

    In 2008 China was expected to roll over and totally open up,but refused.This is why China was demonised as it strengthened the BRICS alliance and deepened Military ties with Russia and Iran.

    The real reason the West wants North Korea is to surround China and eventually make them heel to their Western debt based monetary system.Both Paul Keating and Malcom Fraser have warned us about this containment policy of the West who have admitted to their objective of Global Governance via their ” New World Order” on many occasions.

    Having all the energy ,resources and money supply in fewer hands will mean less competition and higher prices for us.JD Rockerfeller,” Competition is a sin.”

    North Korea Informs UN of Impending Danger of Nuclear War on Korean Peninsula
    Western media have been peddling a fake line of spun news which is designed to make the USA look peaceful and the DPRK (Democratic People`s Republic of North Korea) look like a crazy nuclear aggressor.

    In the western media and diplomatic commentaries North Korea’s statements have been played down as “little new” while in fact there is much new to the current situation that heralds grave danger and an increasing chance of nuclear war by the hour.

    One does not have to be a fan of North Korea nor of the USA to decipher the reality of the current situation and in fact those who are fans of neither parties are in a good position to be realistic.

    North Korea is governed by a tight system mixing cultural, national and racial superiority with claims to socialist and communist values, in reality creating probably the world’s largest cult around the figure of the Supreme Leader, who is also the world’s youngest Head of State, Kim Il Jong, who was educated in Switzerland.

    The United States of America is governed by a banker – corporate conglomerate profit-first state-capitalist system with a foreign policy and media under the tight control of a fanatical elite and which is actively preparing for direct war on its citizens as this article reveals.

    The U.S. regime which represents these elites and has little to do with the American people. In order for it to bring about the direct fascist rule by decree under “emergency laws” for which its various agencies have been beefed up to extreme levels as revealed in the above-mentioned article, it must bring about another “9/11″ type event……………………”.

    Does Julia realise what is going on?

    India, which has served as chair of IOR-ARC since 2011, will turn over the chair to Australia in 2013. Under India’s chairmanship, the United States became a dialogue partner, and with close U.S. military ally Australia in charge from 2013-2015, IOC-ARC cooperation with NATO can be expected to grow even closer. The other IOR-ARC dialogue partner is China, and the politics behind America’s entry into Indian Ocean regional bloc politics can only be seen as a further attempt by Washington and its allies to resurrect the old George F. Kennan Cold War-era anti-Soviet «containment» policy and apply it to China.


    The Yellow Sea has been historically the gateway to Chinas heartland (Beijing and Tianjin) and the military drill area chosen by the US and South Korea is a just about 300 miles from Beijing. As the US adds the 400-mile combat capability of the U.S.S. Washington, its easy to understand Chinas security concerns. Would the US allow a similar military operation to take place off the Atlantic coast, 300 miles from Philadelphia, Boston and New York? Not likely! But patience is a great virtue mastered by both the Chinese masses and the ruling government in Beijing.

    Those who think and/or proclaim that any verbal or physical aggression by North Korea could serve to strengthen the economic-military bond between China and the United States know little about China, or the wisdom the Chinese have added to their culture through millennia. Chinas ascendancy to the apex of the power pyramid will be a two-sided coin, one economic, the other military. And following through one of
    Kong Qiu (Confucius) Analects, To lead the people to war without having taught them is to throw them away, Beijing knows that its time has not yet come but that its close. It will soon be seven decades since the start of Maos consolidation of power in China. And, as Kong Qiu stated twenty-five centuries ago, when a good man has taught the common people for seven years [decades would be applicable here],they should be ready to be employed in war. So, for now, Beijing knows that patience must hold.”

    “By using the new atheist exile politics they [the Zionists] provoked and increased anti-Semitism in Europe which led to the Second world War. . . The worldwide boycott against Germany in 1933 and the later all-out declaration of war against Germany, initiated by the Zionist leaders and the World Jewish Congress. . . ” — Rabbi Schwartz, New York Times, Sept. 30, 1997
    On April 27, 2002 an article in the Arizona Daily Star carried a report with a statement by Ra’anan Gissen, a senior adviser to Ariel Sharon.
    WWIII Is Coming ‘Whether They Like It Or Not’ – Top Sharon Aide

    “We’ve been fighting a war for the past 18 months, which is the harbinger of World War III. The world is going to fight, whether they like it or not. I’m sure”. [Gissen stated]
