5 "Tells" that the Stock Markets Are About to Reverse

Trump US North Korea First Strike Smoke and Mirrors, China is the Real War Target!

Politics / China US Conflict Apr 17, 2017 - 02:16 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

There is growing speculation in the mainstream media and BlogosFear that the Trump regime following blasting of an mostly empty Syrian air-field with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles and then dropping a MOAB on caves in Afghanistan is next set to launch a pre-emptive first strike against the North Korean rouge state's nuclear and missile infrastructure before it manages to achieve its objective of being able to put nukes onto missiles.


Fears rise of U.S. strike on North Korea- Daily Mail

The US refused to rule out a pre-emptive strike on North Korea last night .... Mr Trump said China was 'working with us' on the issue – the first ...

However, the mainstream media's journalists that masquerade as analysts are making the most fundamental of errors, which is that they fail to understand that North Korea is a Chinese proxy. Kim Jong Un is not just the dictator of North Korea but also a puppet of the Chinese Empire i.e. just as an Oscar winning actor as Donald Trump was for his portrayal of Mr BrExit during the last US Presidential election campaign.

Therefore, if the press fail to get this fundamental fact then everything else they write is pretty much gibberish. North Korea is a basket case where at least 90% of its soldiers would fail to even fight for the Kim 'God' dynasty, instead would likely celebrate the demise of their Dear 'Fat' Leader.

For as my in-depth analysis in the Trump Reset series concluded before Donald Trump took office that the US was inevitably trending towards War with China and therefore to understand why events such as the bombing of Syria and a bellicose North Korea are happening one needs to look through prism of the world’s TWO global military and economic super powers. The United States as the defacto global super power, and the emerging Chinese super power that ultimately seeks to displace the United States with its own Empire.

The Trump Reset - 2 The Putin Doctrine

Therefore the only reason why North Korea has nuclear weapons is because the Chinese want them to so that they can be used to put the United States and its Asian allies under pressure which the United States military fully understands hence why the US long term strategy is for the military encirclement of China. In respect of which have a North Korean rogue state that openly threatens the United States is in China's strategic interests. And thus all of the noises coming out of China regards North Korea can be taken with a huge mountain of salt for China WANTS THIS version of North Korea to exist.

Whilst US seeking to confront North Korea is in terms of sending a message to China as North Korea as merely a stepping stone towards the containment of China. Thus an attack on North Korea would amount to degrading Chinese military power in the region.

And as my article BEFORE the US missile strike on Syria illustrated that the primary objective for such an attack was not to send a message to the Russians, for Trump firmly remains as Putin's Manchurian candidate. Instead it was to send a message to the emerging CHINESE EMPIRE! As was the MOAB attack on Afghanistan and now as is the threats to North Korea which are a ruse for the United States Empire to tighten its noose around China as evidenced that whilst Trump was having dinner with the Chinese dictator Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, a US strike fleet was upping anchor and setting sail for the South China Sea at full speed.

07 Apr 2017 - Trump to Fire 50 US Cruise Missiles To Erase Syrian Chemical Attack Air Base, China Next?

This would appear to be a win-win situation for the Trump regime, by attempting to kill two birds with one stone. Firstly to crush the narrative that Trump is working in the interests of Czar Putin who backs the Assad regime, and secondly to deflate calls from America's deep state neo-con elite who seek regime change in Syria, who have been using their deep state CIA and NSA infrastructure to undermine the Trump regime. Also such a large strike would likely also result in russian military causalities, which will be seen as being the icing on the cake for the Trump regime. Which I am sure Trump would soon propagandise in a twitter torrent of "How can be working for the Russian's when I just killed Russian military on the ground in Syria"...

However, this is all just a side show for the main event which is Trump's meeting with the Chinese dictator. In fact the timing of a large missile attack will be just as much a shot across China's bow than a calculated warning to Russia.

So whilst the mainstream press pundits in advance of the visit are busy painting a lovey, dovey friendly picture of what is likely to transpire, which is completely ignorant of Trumps 'China raping America' rhetoric during the election campaign. Then I think they are in for a rude awakening as my in-depth analysis and series of videos in "Trump Reset - War with China" illustrates:

The bottom line is that the US firmly remains on a trend trajectory towards War with China, and the growing armada of US warships in the South China Sea are not there for dealing with North Korea but China's island land grab underway in an attempt at displacing the US from Asia, which is the REAL flash point, a military confrontation between Chinese and US war ships that escalates into war.

And neither should be forgotten the other two nuclear weapon proxies in the region, India for the US and Pakistan for China.
