Trump warns senators ‘looking to start World War III’

By Christopher R Rice Underground Newz

America’s alert status has been upgraded to Defcon-2, listed as the “next step to nuclear war” with “armed Forces ready to deploy and engage in less than six hours”.

How anyone can claim we aren’t at war today is completely ridiculous. This is the next step to World War III and it’s unbelievable anyone anywhere is unaware of it at this point.

Donald Trump just launched 'World War III'

Trump and his team see U.S. trade deficits, concentrated in Asia, as draining America’s wealth and threatening its national security. Trump claims he is out to redefine U.S. economic ties to Asia’s major economies.

Trump deployed the first Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) units to South Korea, which can purportedly intercept North Korean warheads.

It appears Trump is playing on these moves to seek more Japanese and Korean investment in the United States. He also wants understandings on currency valuation and more balanced bilateral trade.

With China—a major economic partner, but not an ally—Trump aims to leverage U.S. military power and other coercive levers to wrest trade and monetary concessions.

To this end, Trump seeks to increase pressure on China by expanding America’s regional military posture. There are 30,000 U.S. soldiers in South Korea today.

Trump's Scorched Earth Policy

If Trump wanted to solve the Korea problem, he would pursue what China proposed last week: dual track diplomacy aimed at “denuclearizing the peninsula on the one hand and establishing a peace mechanism on the other.” Initially, this would entail “suspension for suspension.” Pyongyang would halt its weapons tests; Washington and Seoul would stop joint military exercises.

Parties could then negotiate more comprehensively. America and its allies would seek a Korea without nuclear weapons. For Pyongyang and Beijing, denuclearization would be joined with a regional “peace mechanism” and a U.S.-North Korean peace treaty.

But the dual track would commit America to a cooperative approach to Asian security. And that would not help Trump pursue his economic goals. In a stable Asia, how would Trump leverage military power to extract economic concessions from allies or from China?

This will continue raising risks that conventional conflict on the Korean peninsula escalates rapidly to nuclear war.

If Trump keeps building what China sees as a more robust and ultimately offensive regional military posture, Beijing will respond.

China will leverage its own economic and political ties to U.S. allies in Asia to constrain and undermine Trump’s strategy.

De Stabilizing the World for Corporate Profits 

President Donald Trump issued an executive action, the order instructs Defense Secretary James Mattis, in the words of the Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the order prior to its formal release, “to examine how to carry out operations against unnamed ‘near-peer’ competitors, a group which US officials typically identify as China and Russia.” And it commands the Pentagon and the Office of Management and Budget to develop a “military readiness emergency budget amendment” that would increase military spending in the current year and increase the budget for 2018 and thereafter—increases to be offset by cuts to social spending.

A move by the Trump administration to implement a $1 trillion upgrade in the country’s nuclear arsenal, the expansion of the Navy to 350 ships, the Air Force to 1,200 fighter and attack jets, the Marine Corps from 24 to 36 divisions, and the Army to more than a half a million soldiers.

The US currently spends approximately $600 billion on its military annually—excluding expenditures on the intelligence agencies and Veterans Administration— more than the next nine largest military spenders combined. American “defense” spending accounts for, by itself, over one third of all global military spending, and it consumes the great majority of the federal discretionary budget.

Increases in military spending, coupled with Trump’s promises to drastically lower taxes on corporations and the rich, must inevitably be paid for by cuts to education, health care and infrastructure, and by plundering Social Security and Medicare.

A high-ranking Army general, Lt. Gen. David Barno, told NPR’s Morning Edition that far more US soldiers will be deployed into Syria.

An escalation in Syria is also prefigured by Trump’s anti-immigrant executive order, which, with the express aim of blocking refugees from fleeing the crisis, envisages the creation of “safe zones” run by the US military—in blatant violation of Syrian sovereignty and international law. Under the plan, Syria’s refugees would be placed in what would be, in all but name, US-administered camps, overseen by the US military.
