Incheon, South Korea (CNN) -- The USS George Washington sailed toward volatile waters off the Korean peninsula Wednesday for planned military exercises with South Korea in a show of force designed to deter a further escalation of hostilities with North Korea.
The exercises were billed as defensive in nature and were a more measured response than the retaliation initially urged by South Korea after North Korea's shelling of a South Korean island Tuesday, the most serious act of hostility since the end of the Korean war.
"It is a long-planned exercise," said Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The world wipes the slate clean every 50-75 years and starts again. It's a cycle that has happened frequently in history. The last time of course was in 1939-1945. 60-100 Million people died while most of the world map was redrawn. There was a new financial system and 2 new super empires took to the stage. There is 10 times more debt in the world than all the money ever created. This world is running out of resources and simply cannot sustain 2 or 3 or 4 Billion people who want to live like North Americans.

WW3 is going to start in Korea and bring about the clash between the 2 World Super-powers, the USA and China. I believe the US is going to walk into a terrible trap in North Korea as it finds it's superior technology suddenly mediocre. As the tensions in Korea mount look for other hot spots to erupt... Iran, Syria, North Africa, Pakistan, the Balkans. So many places are powder kegs ready to explode and China via North Korea has just lit the match.

The ROK-South Korea is a preparing one of the most massive military preemptive strikes in the history of modern warfare. They intend to destroy the huge array of artillery and rocket placements within 50km of the border. In will be a very dangerous move on their part, but if the ROK avoids directly targeting  the leadership regime in the North the hope is that North Korea will back down and not escalate the conflict into a full blown war. The 500 or more South Korean combat aircraft would have to fly into one of the most heavily armed air spaces in the world. North Korea has more than 10,000 anti aircraft weapons plus 1700 older fighters. It is believed that if South Korea does not launch a full blown land invasion that North Korea would not use WMDs. South Korea has little choice but to respond to the latest attack which was the first attack on ROK soil since the Korean War ended in 1953.

China warns US against military action on the Korean Peninsula ~ linkDay by day, we move closer to WWIII on multiple fronts.  Stirling 
China has warned the United States against going ahead with any military adventurism on the Korean peninsula following the recent exchange of fire between the two Koreas.The US and South Korea are scheduled to start the planned drills on Sunday.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement on Friday that Beijing was against military activity near its coastline.  "We hold a consistent and clear-cut stance on the issue. We oppose any party to take any military actions in our exclusive economic zone without permission," Lei said in a statement.

Tensions are running high on the Korean Peninsula after deadly clashes between the two Koreas.  The Yellow Sea border island of Yeonpyeong was heavily shelled by North Korea on Tuesday. Each has blamed the other side for starting the skirmish.  South Korean military said on Friday more explosions and the sounds of artillery fire heard off the Yeonpyeong Island were from the North Korean side, but no shells landed in the South.

North Korea earlier warned the US and South Korea against going ahead with their plans to conduct joint naval drills.
This is while US officials in Seoul say the nuclear-powered USS George Washington carrier strike group, which carries 75 warplanes and has a crew of over 6,000, left a naval base south of Tokyo and will join exercises with South Korea. Pyongyang said the war games are provocative and will push the Korean peninsula closer to the brink of war. 

Pentagon flexes muscles in Korea: US Threatens China and North Korea ~ link
In July, the Pentagon was forced to cancel planned exercises in the Yellow Sea due to its proximity to the Chinese shore. It now appears to be flexing its muscles against both North Korea and China. Immediately after the Yeonpyeong shelling, Washington stepped up pressure on Beijing to exert influence on Pyongyang. But China’s reaction was pretty much restrained. It seems that the role of being an arbiter between the two Koreas doesn’t at all appeal to Beijing. Pavel Leshakov, head of the Center for Korean Studies in Moscow, gives his view.

North Korea has always accentuated its independence as an antipode of the South, which in the minds of North Koreans have always been associated with a puppet regime. In Soviet times, North Korea was trying to balance its way through problems between Moscow and Beijing, following a largely independent policy and even reaping some dividends.

China has the strongest influence on North Korea but doesn’t like to show it off for fear of hurting its ally’s sovereignty. At the same time, Beijing is throwing all its weight to prevent a unification of the two Koreas under the aegis of Seoul and Washington. On Friday, news agencies quoted a Chinese official, whose name was not disclosed, who said: “North Korea is our Eastern Germany. Do you remember what happened when Eastern Germany fell? The Soviet Union collapsed”.

China works to ease North-South Korea tension ~ link 
Pyongyang said the drills were pushing the region to "the brink of war". The US and other powers have repeatedly urged Beijing - Pyongyang's only ally - to use its influence to defuse the crisis.

On Friday, China's Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi met the North's ambassador in person, and spoke on the phone to his US and South Korean counterparts, according to a statement carried by the state-run Xinhua news agency. "The top priority now is to keep the situation under control and to ensure such events do not happen again," the statement said. Few details of the conversations were released, and the US state department has not yet commented.

The Korean Crisis and US carrier diplomacy ~ link
The USS George Washington in Manila, the Philippines - 4 September 2010 
The USS George Washington has experience in the waters off the Korean peninsula

In a time of growing strategic competition between the United States and a rising China, the US carrier force in the Pacific is an important symbol. It is a signal of US determination to maintain a presence. At the same time, there is a heated debate over the significance of China's moves to develop a ballistic missile designed specifically to target carriers.

It also explains why there was consternation in Washington when a Chinese submarine unexpectedly surfaced close to a US carrier strike group on exercise south of Japan in 2007.

Analysis: US carrier visit a dilemma for China ~ link ~
In this Wednesday Nov. 24, 2010 photo, the U.S. ...
The USS George Washington, accompanied by escort ships, is to take part in military drills with South Korea following North Korea's shelling of a South Korean island Tuesday that was one of the most serious confrontations since the Korean War a half-century ago.

It's a scenario China has sought to prevent. Only four months ago, Chinese officials and military officers shrilly warned Washington against sending a carrier into the Yellow Sea for an earlier set of exercises. Some said it would escalate tensions after the sinking of a South Korean navy ship blamed on North Korea. Others went further, calling the carrier deployment a threat to Chinese security.

Why border hot-spot is Korean War relic ~ link ~  

These islands are now something of a strategic albatross round South Korea's neck, for the ships and ferries which supply them are literally in the gun sights of North Korean coastal artillery, anti-shipping missiles and patrol boats. But though they may be defensively ill-sited, they do provide South Korea with a useful balcony from which to spy on the North Korean coast, and during the war, offshore islands were frequently used as staging areas for partisan operations and raids.

Today, while they have small populations of civilians, largely engaged in fishing, they are heavily garrisoned by South Korean marines - the elite of the South's tough military. Seen in this sense, they could provide staging bases for flanking amphibious attacks into North Korea if South Korea ever takes the offensive.

North Korea has 180,000 Special Forces Ready to Cross into the South ~ link

North Korea operates 40,000 special forces troops, including the 11th or "Storm" Corps whose mission is to infiltrate South Korea and create havoc in case of war. It also has around 10,000 naval special forces and around 5,000 air force soldiers who can cross the border if a war breaks out.

Kim said the Storm Corps, which has been trained to stir up confusion behind enemy lines, is composed of four light infantry, seven airborne and three sniper brigades. And the 4th Corps special forces, stationed on the Ongjin Peninsula close to South Korea's Baeknyeong Islands in the West Sea, consists of 600 scout troops, 600 naval reconnaissance soldiers and around 1,800 naval forces.

US Exploits Korean Clash to Step Up Pressure on China ~ linkNow the US administration is escalating the pressure on China. On Tuesday, Obama called on China to tell North Korea “that there are a set of international rules they need to abide by”. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley declared yesterday: “China does have influence with North Korea and we would hope and expect China would use that influence.”

For China to “influence” North Korea would mean moving to cut off aid to its already impoverished ally and force it to meet US demands. Pyongyang has suffered from decades of sanctions by the US and its allies. China is North Korea’s largest aid provider and investor, and is actively seeking to open up the country for Chinese companies to use as a cheap labour platform.

Sections of the US media have called on the White House to accuse Beijing of being culpable for North Korea’s “provocations”. A Washington Post editorial on Tuesday declared: “The United States and its allies should hold Beijing responsible for putting a stop to Mr. Kim’s [North Korean leader] dangerous behavior.”

Israel Erases Palestinian Village of Abul Ajaj from Map ~ link ~ These are human beings that are being ethnically cleansed from their land and homes.  In the view of the Israeli extremists, it is OK because they are only two-legged soulless animals.  To 99.9% of the human race that sounds like extreme racism, but not to Netanyahu and his Cabinet/band of nuts.  Stirling   

'Israeli bulldozers under heavy military protection demolished Wednesday morning the village of Abul Ajaj in the northern Jordan valley region as a prelude to expanding the settlement of Metsuwah that was established on Palestinian lands. Eyewitnesses said that more than 30 Palestinian structures belonging to the family of Al Doais were totally removed from the area, adding that the Israeli troops have imposed a military cordon on the area since the early morning hours, while the family refused to leave their hometown.

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) had handed the residents of the village orders to evacuate their homes, which were attacked earlier more than once by extremist Jewish settlers. 

In another incident, the IOF stormed in the morning of the same day the village of Bani Hassan in the Palestinian city of Salfit, and embarked on knocking down Palestinian homes and bulldozing agricultural lands.'

More Than a Bribe: Obama Surrenders Palestinian Rights ~ link ~ The Middle East policies of US President Barack Obama may well prove the most detrimental in history so far, surpassing even the rightwing policies of President George W. Bush. Even those who warned against the overt optimism which accompanied Obama’s arrival to the White House must now be stunned to see how low the US president will go to appease Israel – all under the dangerous logic of needing to keep the peace process moving forward.

Mind-boggling. US generously hands Palestinian rights to Israel on a silver platter, and the far-right mentality, which now governs Israeli mainstream politics and society, still finds it unacceptable.  

But aside from this arrogant Israeli response, and the US media’s attempts to find the positive in Obama’s latest scandal, one question must be raised. What happens now that Obama has finally shown he really is no different from his predecessors? That the United States has lost control of its own foreign policy in the Middle East? That, frankly, Netanyahu has proved more resilient, more steadfast, and more resourceful than the American president?

Fuel loading completed at Bushehr reactor in Iran ~ link ~ Any successful attack on the reactor now will result in millions of deaths in Iran and downwind for a thousand or more miles.  Stirling

The reactor head of the first unit at Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant was successfully installed on 23 November, according to Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), as reported by the Iranian Students News Agency. This marks the completion of fuel loading activities, which began on 26 October. Previous reports have indicated that the unit will be grid connected in February 2011. 

Fresh heavy snowfalls and ice warnings in place for the United Kingdom ~ link ~
Car struggles to climb the hill on Penrhiwfer Road, Tonyrefail, Wales  
This change in weather patterns for the UK and Europe continues after the terrible summer that we just had.  The Jet Stream continues to behave abnormally because the North Atlantic Current is itself abnormal due to the total death of the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico; both are parts of the Thermohaline Circulation System that regulates the world's climate.  The Loop Current died because of the BP Oil Disaster and because the Obama Administration allow BP to use millions of gallons of dispersants to sink most of the oil.  The oil below the surface cannot be cleaned up with existing technology and it destroys warm water currents in the Gulf (the Loop Current) which feeds the Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Currents.  These in turn effect the high level Jet Stream which is what is bringing much colder conditions to much of the UK and Europe.   Stirling 

Environmental catastrophe in the Gulf: The spilled oil has settled on the ocean floor ~ linkThe oil is still there, sitting at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and causing damage to the environment, a Florida State University professor who studies greenhouse gases, oceans and energy said Tuesday.

Professor Jeff Chanton compared natural oil seepage in the Gulf of Mexico to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. About 1,000 natural ocean-floor leaks combine to trickle about 400,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf each year, Chanton said, but scientists estimate as many as 60,000 barrels of oil poured into the Gulf each day of the spill.

“While natural seepage is a normal process, what happened this summer was totally overwhelming,” Chanton said.
The professor said he thinks most of that Deepwater Horizon oil — as much as 70 percent to 79 percent of it —sank to the ocean floor, where it remains, sucking up oxygen and inhibiting life.

Secret 'Trigger' & blueprint for emergency domestic military crackdown plan revealed ~ link ~ Digital presentations posted on an Army Corps of Engineers server, about military operations in a giant FEMA-simulated earthquake drill called National Level Exercise 2011, inadvertently reveal crucial new info about another 'Secret' Pentagon plan, Northcom CONPLAN 3502, including the “trigger” for domestic military 'Civil Disturbance Operations.' CONPLAN 3502 and CONPLAN 3501, 'Defense Support of Civil Authorities,' are the two main military plans used to design the Pentagon's 'footprint' at National Special Security Events like the 2008 Republican National Convention.
Exactly as the Pennsylvania National Guard took over the G20 protester jail operation, other docs show 'Secret' CONPLAN 3502 specifically plans for military-operated detention and search operations within our country. In context, the new material is the most troubling I have ever discovered, and proves anew that underneath Constitutional limited government, a more brutal martial framework is secretly, constantly, extending its reach. DHS/FEMA doesn't like it at all when NLEs get publicized so check it out right away. Full URLs below.
Such a Well Behaved Herd of Sheep - TSA thanks you for allowing them to violate your rights and to assault you ~ link ~ If ever there was an indicator of just how apathetic and well trained the American public truly is, it must be this situation with TSA.  Like a herd of bedraggled sheep, thousands of you forfeited your 4th and 5th amendment rights and allowed the government to irradiate you and view your virtually naked body, or allowed yourself to be subjected to an enhanced pat-down…nothing short of a sexual encounter.  And for what?  This is a training and conditioning exercise you fools! This has nothing to do with making us safer, national security or protecting America.  It has nothing to do with making your flight safer.  It has everything to do with conditioning you to accept a full body assault as long as the persons doing it are wearing a government badge.  You are being trained to submit and comply.
We have a border that is wide open and anyone and everyone from far away places such as Uganda, China, North Korea, and even Afghanistan have crossed that border at will, without any trouble, and millions of people from Mexico, El Salvador, Ecuador, and various and sundry other South American country’s have also entered and Homeland Security has absolutely no plans to secure that border or to deport any of those individuals caught here illegally. With this in mind……how concerned do you think Homeland Security is about terrorism or terrorists?  

Who is it Homeland Security views as terrorists?  YOU.

For all of you who claim, “I don’t mind….they are just trying to keep us safe”….may you be the first to be loaded on a truck to the FEMA camps.  As submissive and compliant as you are, most likely you will drive yourself there.  And don’t forget to get your fake flu pandemic vaccine on the way!  In fact…take mine!  And just for good measure, why don’t you present yourself to the nearest Fusion Center and have yourself facially imprinted, have your iris scanned and your finger prints taken so that when you walk down the street all those spy cameras that are being installed in every city, can identify you and record where you were and what you were doing. 

How damn stupid are you people going to get?  

Thanks to all of you compliant jerk-offs out there, there are now plans afoot in several locations to install these porno scanners in the entry to courthouses, train terminals, subways or virtually any location that people might opt to use for travel.  Thanks to you mindless sheeple, we will all now be subjected to this invasion of our persons.  And why?  Because you might be a domestic terrorist if you opt out!  After all, so many others compliantly obeyed and allowed this invasion of their person to go on unchallenged. So, if you are objecting to these rights violations and don’t want to be sexually assaulted by some pervert with a TSA badge, that must mean you are a  domestic terrorist.

I have news for all of you:  The domestic terrorist in this situation is the guy/gal with the TSA badge on.    

Of course the plans to install the porno scanners in the subways, train stations, courthouse, and wherever else they are going to appear, is not just a sudden event.  This was the plan all along.  Homeland Security, the agency charged with defending the government from you, has just taken a giant step forward in exposing itself as the police state agency that it was created to be. 

We are being maneuvered into a full police state.  Thanks to all of you who complied with this police state action, the rest of us will pay the price.  You forfeited your rights just so you wouldn’t be inconvenienced and forfeited everyone else’s at the same time.  Why?  Because standing up for what is right might have delayed you?  

How pathetic is that? 

TSA Forces Woman to Cut Off Her Nipple Rings With Pliers ~ link ~ Only in America, sad to say.  Stirling 

The Stench of the Police State at US Airports ~ link ~
As tens of millions of Americans travel during the busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend, they will come face to face with the new regime instituted by the federal Transportation Security Administration. More than 70 major airports have installed full-body scanners, where randomly selected passengers are compelled to undergo the electronic equivalent of a strip search. Travelers who decline that scan will be subjected instead to an extremely invasive body search that includes an open-palm patdown of the genital area.

There are already reports of gross invasions of privacy and abuse of passengers. A flight attendant was forced to show her prosthetic breast during a patdown. An 8-year-old boy was forced to remove his shirt in Salt Lake City, although children under 12 are supposedly not subject to the intensified searches. A retired special education teacher from Lansing, Michigan was humiliated and left covered with his own urine after a TSA screener broke the seal on his urostomy bag while patting him down.

The new measures, introduced by the TSA November 1, constitute an assault on core constitutional rights. The random full-body scans and/or patdowns are a systematic, across-the-board violation of the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures in which all those who are traveling are treated as potential terrorist threats.

Such methods have a logic of their own. If it is necessary to search any passenger on a plane in the most intrusive manner possible, similar justifications will be found for other forms of mass transportation—trains, buses, subways—as well as other venues where large numbers of people congregate, including malls, movie theaters, or any sizeable workplace. The result is the creation of a police-state environment for the entire society.

None of the increasingly absurd and outrageous procedures instituted at airports have anything to do with making the population more “secure.” Rather, they are part of a massive increase in the power of the security apparatus, the framework of a police state in the US. From 9/11 on, first under Bush, now under Obama, the “war on terror” has been used as a catch-all justification for expanding domestic spying; instituting indefinite detention without charges; justifying executive assassination of anyone around the world, including US citizens; and employing torture. The climate of fear and intimidation cultivated at the borders and at the airports is part of this.

Both big business parties, Democrats and Republicans, are committed to expanding the power of the capitalist state, in its most overtly repressive form, the “armed bodies of men,” in Marxist terms. Ten years of bloody warfare since 9/11 have brought about an increasing brutalization of American society itself, as the American government now brings home the methods of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, violence and humiliation, for use against the American population.

These police-state methods are not directed against “terrorism,” but at any opposition to the increasingly unpopular policies of the financial aristocracy. The more farsighted sections of the ruling class understand very well that their policies of impoverishing the working class and ripping up social programs will lead to mass opposition, for which they have no answer but mass repression.

Moreover, police-state measures at home are a critical component of the preparation for new wars and imperialist adventures abroad. Each “terror scare” is tied to the promotion of the interests of American imperialism in key regions of the world, generally those that sit on top of vast quantities of oil and gas or straddle critical shipping routes.

In the final analysis, the increasing reliance of the US ruling elite on police-state methods, abroad and at home, demonstrates the impossibility of combining imperialism and democracy. American society is being ripped apart by profound social contradictions. Never has the gulf been so wide between the enormous wealth of the privileged elite, and increasing misery for the broad masses of the population.

Afghanistan is About Perpetual War ~ link ~ But George Orwell’s 1984 -- now updated with important new books -- illuminates the bigger picture: "continuous warfare" is the key to social control.

It keeps the public frightened and dependent.

And it keeps "the wheels of industry turning without increasing the real wealth of the world. Goods must be produced, but they must not be distributed."

Better to destroy them in a ritual slaughter like Afghanistan, and wherever is next.

For a truly prosperous society, educated and secure, cannot be ruled by the few. Poverty, ignorance and fear are the three pillars of authoritarian control. Without war, they all disappear.

Thus Afghanistan. Before it: the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, central America. After: whoever else is handy.
