US Wants To Unite Japan And South Korea Into Alliance Against China: Report

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The US wants to unite Japan and South Korea into an alliance against China and North Korea, but “history is in the way,” according to a South China Morning Post analysis from January 12th.

The author, John Power, claimed that a “long coveted strategy” in US foreign policy circles is a trilateral alliance with Tokyo and Seoul to present “a united front against common security concerns, including China’s growing influence.”

That plan is faced with an issue:

“South Korea and Japan just cannot seem to get along. Relations between Tokyo and Seoul, long strained by historical issues stemming from Japan’s 1910-45 colonization of the Korean peninsula, have soured further as the sides stumble from one controversy to the next.”

Most recently, Tokyo and Seoul clashed over an encounter between their militaries in international waters. Tokyo accused a South Korean vessel of locking onto one of its patrol aircraft with its targeting radar, a preliminary step before firing at an enemy. This prompted a response from Seoul and since then the rift has deepened and has turned into a public war of words over who’s wrong.

Historically, the issue of Korean forced labourers and “comfort women” pressed into sexual slavery during the second world war remains.

“The United States has long hoped that its two allies in Asia would work more closely together, bilaterally and trilaterally, with the United States to address and combat regional security threats,” said Brad Glosserman, the deputy director of Tama University’s Centre for Rulemaking Strategies in Tokyo. “There’s no opportunity for the system to snap back. It’s just one blow after another.”

The relationship between South Korea and Japan appears to be a continuous gauntlet of issues, which both sides seem keen on causing for each other.

On January 9th, a South Korean court seized the assets of a Japanese company to compensate victims of forced labour, following a related Supreme Court decision that Taro Kono, Japan’s foreign minister, called “totally unacceptable.”

Furthermore, a 2015 deal which settled the issue of “comfort women” was undermined in November 2018, when Seoul announced it would disband a compensation fund that was the base of the agreement. The deal was opposed because some survivors criticize that it does not sufficiently assert Japan’s responsibility for its war crimes.

“The bottom line is that these two countries need each other and have diametrically opposed views in the function of their national identity,” Glosserman said.

In terms of things in common both South Korea and Japan are democracies and host US troops. Importantly, they appear to share the US view of order in Asia. “More importantly, both governments see North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes as a threat, and regard the prospect of Chinese hegemony in Asia with trepidation.”

“When it comes to security issues in international politics, usually when there’s a common threat that is extremely acute, that’s when you can get two sides to partition or segment different issues,” said Andrew Yeo, an associate professor of politics and director of Asian Studies at the Catholic University of America.

Domestic political pressures in both countries impede them from further cooperation.

“Last year, the Asahi newspaper reported that Seoul was sharing little military intelligence with Tokyo despite the countries signing a related pact in 2016. That agreement provoked a public backlash in South Korea, where memories of Japanese colonisation remain raw. Around the same time, Seoul knocked back a US proposal for three-way military drills involving Tokyo.”

Notwithstanding, the US has exerted great diplomatic efforts trying to bring the two sides closer. It is questionable how successful that has been.

“The US has done a great deal of work, but quietly, in ways that would antagonise neither side and be able to allow them to accuse Washington of taking sides in the dispute,” Glosserman said.

In 2014, Obama brought South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe together for their first face-to-face talks at the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague. The former POTUS praised the meeting as an example of common cause between the US, South Korea and Japan.

President Donald Trump has distanced US foreign policy from alliances abroad. “Yet it seems that Washington’s longer-term objective is still for Japan and South Korea to put aside their differences and cooperate on shared strategic goals.”

“The logical thing is it seems like they should be closely aligned,” Yeo said. “I am optimistic in the long run that these differences, even if they cannot be resolved, can be managed so that you can have all three countries working together to address security issues in East Asia.”

    This must surely mean that the US does not want North and South Korea to reunite, as North Korea would not agree to hostilities with China..

    • Barba_Papa

      I don’t see much chance of that happening. Language aside the two countries are basically two completely alien cultures. East and West Germany had more in common and even that reunification is still causing problems to this day. The two Koreas are separated for much longer and North Koreans have been subjected to far more intense indoctrination and a far more intense and brutal regime then the East Germans were. East Germany did not let millions of its own citizens starve. And East Germany at least worked, of sorts. The only thing that seems to be working in North Korea is the army and the nuclear program. Also, West Germany basically assimilated East Germany, its rulers not having much say in the matter. How could totalitarian North Korea with its hereditary Kim dynasty form any sort of realistic political union with South Korea? There is literally nothing to gain for the Kim’s in Korean re-unification, unless it were by conquest of the South by the North. Which is realistically impossible, other then by act of Hollywood plot.

      And even if it were to happen a united Korea would be offline to the rest of the world for at least several decades, as whichever Korea takes over the other will be busy assimilating the other for countless generations. Just like Germany was basically offline during the 90’s.

      As for Seoul and Tokio unable to work together in an alliance against Japan, this is where Japan’s refusal to admit it did anything wrong in WW2 comes to bit it in the arse. Just like the US not doing anything to force the Japanese in that regard has come to bite them in the arse. Nobody in East Asia who has had the good fortune to enjoy the presence of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy is keen to have a repeat visit. In that sense China might be scary, but at least those countries have never had the PLA utterly rape them as the Japanese did.

      • FlorianGeyer

        If we only consider the experiences of North Korea,Vietnam and Japan as well I suppose, few in East Asia are keen to have the US visit them either.

        Korea has a much longer history of being united that separated.
        As the Olympics showed they understand that the US seeks to re-ignite the war “against communism” at their expense, so the US has an excuse to attack China.
        Slowing China’s re-emergence as the world power using Korea and/or Japan as proxies is the all to obvious plan. Korea will reunite because it is the will of those peoples, just as Vietnam, just as Syria.

      • Mike

        Opinion stemming from an alt-right necon lunatic, you wall street shill.

  • Jesus

    South Korea will stay aligned with China given their common goals economic and political goals, Korea carries a lot of baggage from the Japanese occupation from WW2 and before.
    Korean and China conduct direct trade in yuan and won.
    If Korea, Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia lean towards the Eurasian multipolar system, seeking good relations with China and Russia, US will have few allies in Asia.

    • You can call me Al

      Don’t forget what Japan did to China, very similar in a way to South Korea.

      • verner

        and what the most demented states of A did to korea – bombed it to smithereens and then some dumber than dumb moron from the other side of the pacifics get a 500m$ reward for someone who kicked the friggin bucket in a nk prison but the friggin demented states of A haven’t paid a penny towards the reparations of north korea to the tune of 100s of billions of $$ when the koreans rejected sung man rhee as the new head of the korea as pushed by the more than dumb morons of washington dc. nothing much to say really – just plain stupid and the question is why does countries listen to something so utterly beyond common sense or what have you that makes people/organizations/countries just plain friggin stupid.

    • Justin

      I TOTALLY disagree!
      South Korea’s greatest threat is China! In fact it was the Chinese that were fighting in the Korean war on the side of the North!
      Australia is in a similar situation as South Korea! We were both attacked by the Japanese, we both have close economic ties to China BUT you can bet your life that the treaties we have with the USA (BECAUSE THEY SAVED US!!!!) are solid as a rock! We buy and use US weapons, we train with them and we have their bases on our lands! WHY??? BECAUSE THEY SAVED US!!!!

      You think South Korea and Japan dont thank God every day that they were defeated by the USA? Look at their lives and freedoms! Both nations are 3rd and 4th strongest economies in the world!

      What kind of freedoms and political ideologies would exist in South Korea if China were to e their masters? huh?

      Why do people keep FOOLING THEMSELVES into believing that China would be a better partner?? Why are people like you so stupid and blind!

      Tell me, did u like Soviet Russia? (because the Russian’s didnt)
      Do u like communist China with its social credit system? (dont dare say the chinese like it)

      I do not love america of today but america of the past was a great nation!
      You need to understand the words u write on this site!
      Globalists took over the USA and Nationalists are trying to take it back!

      Nationalists took back Russia (thank God)

      China is to be the Globalist Ruler and here you are CHEERING THEM ON!!!!
      YOU FOOL!

      China has no chance, NO CHANCE of defeating the USA and its allies! Why do u think Taiwan (so close to China and speak chinese) want nothing to do with China! HUH??? WHY?? answer that question!!

      China cannot even navigate the south china sea without USA’s say so!
      Who confronts the Chinese INFERIOR navy in the South China Sea??
      Guess who?

      USA, South Korea, Japan, Australia, UK, Malaysia, Philipines, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand etc etc!

      China has FUCK ALL navy!
      So stop talking absolute BULLSHIT!

      I’d be speaking Japanese if it were not for the USA during WW2!
      South Korea wuld be speaking Japanese or chinese if it were not for the USA!

      And now they BOTH are free and rich!

      And lets not forget that the USA saved China also from the Japanese!

      (I am an Australian and i support Russia and Syria in the syrian war, but i do not defend bullshit like you just wrote)!

      • lovethemapples

        You seem to be way too angry for someone that doesn’t believe in geopolitical predictions on Asian future with Chinese dominance.
        If you believe in that prediction, your comment doesn’t make sense. If you don’t, why are you angry mate?

        • Justin

          These predictions are terrible!
          If u think these US allies jump ship to China u are crazy!
          if u think its due to an incoming US dollar collapse then u are even more crazy!

          Because people who KNOW what replaces the US dollar know that the USA stay number 1!

          The yuan will not be the reserve currency!
          Everyone knows that the incoming IMF SDR’s that China signed up too will be the new replacement!
          And within each SDR is a currency!
          The US dollar, the euro the Yuan, the Stirling/ pound etc etc!
          Guess who gets the biggest cut of the SDR?
          The USA!
          6 years a go the USA had a 40% cut and the Chinese have a 30% cut! The rest is divided between the others! But as of 2018 things have changed! China’s economy has shrunk by over 30% and the US economy has risen by over 25%!

          Guess where the SDR’s stand at now??
          USA has a 60% cut of the SDR!

          So even if the global economy collapsed, the US would still be the economic leader!

          This is one of the reasons why the military industrial complex backed Trump in the US election and likely won him the presidency! He has taken back US companies and made tariffs on China! So the former US globalists have lost their plan to enrich China and the US nationalists have taken their country back!

          Look up IMF SDR’s! Then make a NEW prediction!

          USA still wins in a global economic collapse!

          At the moment people are investing in the USA because its booming! China is going down a hole! That is why the Chinese President announced to “prepare for war” because they know they have lost! Likely they will try to take back Taiwan but it wont be successful!

          Note as soon as China made this announcement to “prepare for war” Trump immediately ordered the removal of Troops from Syria!

          So u want geopolitical predictions??

          There u have it!

          Nobody on this site knows jack shit!

        “it was the Chinese that were fighting in the Korean war on the side of the North! ” – thats right, and thankfully so. It was the South that had a US puppet regime in place to help murder Korean citizens. The US military is a whore for US corporations and israel, and thats why all US wars are initiated and fought. Vietnam and the Korean war was no exception. At least the North have their pride in tact. The South has been bending over for uncle sam ever since. What the world needs is the US to be cut down to size then punished with nuclear warfare for the millions it has genocided globally in its wars for Israel and US corporations. I’m hoping the NK-China-Russian alliance can teach the US that lesson.

        • Justin

          Ewan there is a difference between USA of the 1950’s and the USA of 2018!

          Plus the korean war was a proxy war between the soviet union and the USA and its allies!

          Communism vs Democracy!

          Neither are perfect but im glad democracy won!

          You exposed yourself! You’re a commy lover! You love karl marx, the Bolshevik JEWISH revolution (stalin was a part of it and was a Georgian Jew)!

          Soviet Russia was a Jewish takeover! Wake up and smell the shit u shovelling!

      • Sinbad2

        China and Korea have been neighbours for a long time, and have lived in peace for 1400 years.
        The only threat to peace on the Korean peninsula is the USA.

        You are a victim of propaganda, you think China and North Korea are the aggressors, but the aggressor is and always has been the USA.
        The USA has been attacking Korea since 1866.

        • Justin

          OK Sinbad…..

          If i go to korea as a journalist and i put a microphone in a South loreans face and i ask them “China or USA” who do u think they will say?

          Did the USA not fight off the soviets and the chinese?
          did they not save them from the japanese?

          Who is china friendly too? North korea or South Korea?

          Who’s proxy would u prefer to be?
          China’s proxy (north korea)
          OR
          Americas proxy (south korea)?

          ANSWER!!!!!

          Look at japan! They fucking bombed australia, fucked up korea and china, bombed the USA! They were finally defeated and now look at them! KICKING ASS! And they been kicking ass ever since the end of that war!

          So if americacan defeat a country WHO ATTACKED THEM FIRST and set them almost free, then why the fuck would a dumbass like u say that South korea prefers China to the USA!

          U must be on drugs to say that!

          Youre gone mate! youre off your rocker!

          Go to korea and ask someone “China or usa” and watch what happens!

          Youre an idiot!

          • Sinbad2

            “Did the USA not fight off the soviets and the chinese?
            did they not save them from the japanese?”

            First off, the Russians were already in Korea when the Americans arrived.
            The Americans offered half of Korea to the Soviets, but they declined and withdrew once the Japanese had been defeated.
            The Americans refused to leave the South Korea that Dean Rusk had created claiming that the South Koreans were communists.
            That is why the North Koreans tried to rid their country of the American invaders.

            Calling someone an idiot, when you have obviously never read a book in your life is a bit rich.

          • Justin

            After WW2 it quickly became the Soviets vs the USA and Western Allies!

            So for someone like u who see’s it as an invasion but the soviets werent invading?

            The Soviets were spreading like wild fire! Communism vs Democracy!

            i’m starting to think u prefer Communism!! Do u?

            Sinbad…. DO YOU PREFER COMMUNISM? YES OR NO?

            Do u prefer China to be the world leader rather than the USA?

            here u are trying to explain ur reasons but they just fall off a cliff every fucking time!

            Shall we read history Sinbad? Shall we?
            Stalin 40 million russians
            Mao 80 million chinese
            Stalin “president for life”
            Xi “president for life”

            Im not saying america is innocent but u are saying China and russia is pure!

            Get off ur fucking high horse dude!
            China is a piece of shit nation! U have no idea that most of the corruption within the USA is due to China! and its being eradicated now! you should be celebrating! The chinese were the ones trying to rig the US elections!

          If u mean facebook etc then yes! But its not a govt policy to spy on people, its a corporate policy! And people are fighting against it! The USA and the west have LAWS regarding privacy in their constitutions where as China have the opposite! In china have zero privacy!

          So if u support China being a world leader then u are a fucking moron!

            Obviously u have no idea what u are talking about!

            FVEY (the five eye nations who spy on each other to get around privacy laws)
            yes we have privacy laws and thats why we need our partners to spy on us!

            China doesnt need partners it just openly does it and thats that!
            What we do is illegal and its about to end and u know why its about to end?
            BECAUSE IT WAS THE NSA WHO EXPOSED IT!

            So what ure telling me is YOU DONT KNOW!

            It was the CIA spying on the people (the Five eye nations) and NOT the NSA!

            The NSA was spying on its allies INCLUDING THE CIA!
            yes Sinbad, since u dont know whats going on let me tell u!

            The NSA’s spying tools were exposed because they were spying on other intel agencies! But the CIA and the UK, NZ, Canadian and Aussie spy agencies were spying ON THE PEOPLE!

            This is why Snowden was pushed from the CIA to the NSA in order to expose the NSA’s spy tools because the CIA was spying on citizens!

            So guess what Sinbad…… the NSA was spying on the bad guys!

            Thats why they were caught spying on Merkel’s office! etc!

            Snowden exposed this because Snowden is a “pretend good guy”!

            Snowden was a lacky for the CIA who exposed the NSA because the NSA was exposing the CIA!

            1. NSA (mainly a military intelligence agency)
            2. CIA (a govt intelligence agency started by jews) truth!

            As soon as Trump was elected, Admiral Rogers immediately went to Trump to tell him hat the CIA was spying on his campaign!

            There are 2 kinds of intelligence agents:

            The NSA is saving us! the CIA is a Mossad sister agency!
            This is why there is an intel war happening i the USA right now!
            U see this every day on the news when u hear about “russian collusion”!

            The CIA has embedded journalists in the main stream media!
            The NSA is exposing this NOW!
            Why the fuck do u think Paul Ryan resigned?
            Why the fuck u think the media dont want Trump and putin meeting each other!
            Why the fuck u think the LEFT msm wants to stay in syria?

            Look at this picture below and it will explain it to u!
            The NSA is killing the CIA because the CIA is spying on us! Thats why those NSA spy tools were made and why they were exposed by a former CIA agent!

            U think china didnt help Snowden get out of China?
            The CIA helped Snowden whilst the NSA were trying to capture him!

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6214c99c935f432eba6ffcb64084aab34099db20f607370d5f422cbfc23eec0f.jpg

            Ask yourself, why is the media against Trump no matter what he does!
            Why is the military supporting Trump?
            Why did the media and the Dems go after Michael Flynn (former DIA director)?

            Sinbad, u dont know what u are talking about! All u have are talking points! u have no idea whats going on!

            CIA and NSA are enemies of each other!
            U show how much u dont know!

            Stop hating on USA, its different now that Trump is in!

      • Sinbad2

        ABC news is like the BBC, it’s a Government propaganda outlet.

        • Justin

          Yes and its corporations who dictate govt policies!

          Do u know the difference between a govt dictatorship and Corporatism / fascism?

          China = Extreme Govt dictatorship (president for life)
          Australia = Corporate takeover over govt due to corruption!

          China = govt writes laws to spy on you and thats that!
          Australia = law states the right to privacy so they must secretly ILLEGALLY spy on us

          So to finish my comment, we can end our situation via exposure of corruption but its damn hard when the media is batting for them and when an independent journo is censored! but still, we can fight back and win! (example yellow vests in france, tommy robinson in the UK, Qanon in the USA)

          But in China, its fucking law! They can lawfully and legally spy on u!

          Do u understand the difference sinbad or do i need to draw u a fucking picture so u can understand??

            Dude im more pro Russian and Syrian than u are!
            i have fought off more pro american, pro sdf, pro israeli, pro FSA supporters than u have!

            i just dont accept bullshit when people on this site decide they will support and prefer China to the USA!

            Would u have said the same thing in 1989??

            No!

            The USA was infiltrated and peolpe like u dont understand! Well guess what, since January 20th 2017, the GOOD USA is back! its back and its fighting off the jewish, mossad cabal!

            UK and Australia spied on President Trump’s campaign because these ELITES u and i both hate were trying to get Hillary to win!

            Thats why the Left wing globalist media has spun this Russian Collusion shit!

            Well guess what, its being exposed NOW!

            Guess who the CIA and the Clinton campaign were working with?? CHINA!
            Guess what they gave to China when Clinton was Sec of State? Military secrets and commercial secrets! What about the trade deals which forced US companies (even aussie companies) to China?

            And here u are with ur thumb up your ass thinking that China is the good guy!

            CHINA IS THE BAD GUY!!!! Clintons, CIA, Directors of the FBI, etc etc were colluding because the globalists WANT CHINA to be the new power!

            The USA military intelligence fought back!

            U have no idea do u!

            CIA bad guy!
            NSA good guy!

            Edward Snowden Bad guy
            Julian Assange good guy

            But u believe the shit dont u?? u bought into the Snowden thing like a good little boy!

            Well u were schilled by the CIA!

            Wake the fuck up and KNOW what u are talking about!

    • Justin

      you said “US will have few allies in Asia”!
      Thats the most stupid thing i’ve seen someone write on this site in a long time!

      • Mike

        Stupid is what you pretty much type, neocon shill.

      • Ewan

        The US already has its asian “alies” jumping ship.

        • Justin

          name them!

        • Justin

          So the Chinese economy has shrunk y over 30% and the US economy is up over 25%!
          The IMF SDR’s (that replace the reserve currency in a global collapse) favours the USA with a 60% share! China has a 28% share!
          People who know economics and know military capabilities and know who they back and are experienced in war will be all with the USA!

          Only an extremely dumb person wants China to be the new global empire! And t make the prediction they defeat the USA and its allies is absolute rubbish!

          And dont assume that Russia will be on the side of the Chinese in such a war! If u assume that then u really do show ur geopolitical naivety!

          Russia has always been on the US side in a world war! China will not be a proxy war!China is more of a threat to Russia than any other country simply because they share a border and russia has land and resources! Eventually, if china were to become a great power, Russia would be swallowed up!

          Everyone knows Putin wants to be a part of Europe! But he was forced to partner up with China (something they never wanted to do) when Sanctions were laid upon them after Crimea!

          My prediction, after 2020 and the arrest of many corrupt politicians in the USA over the next 2 years, Russia and the USA will become allies!

          Thats a prediction and a bold one!

          Qanon quote:
          (note: “Enemies are allies”)

          f you are smart (stupid) you know what just occurred at the meeting in Russia.
          Attempts to frame Russia / POTUS (optics) are failing and will soon be exposed.
          [Objective] to keep POTUS away from PUTIN failed.
          Bolton + PUTIN should scare you.
          Enemies are allies.
          EVIL has no place here.
          America is no longer for sale.
          The age of taxing our citizens across the World while entry to our markets is FREE is OVER.
          The WORLD will UNITE in this cause (G v E/R v W).

      • Sinbad2

        Exactly, the US has had no allies since the Korean war.
        The US has vassals, and every one of those vassals would sink the knife in, if they thought they could get away with it.

        • Justin

          So youre saying that South korea would ally with China if they had the opportunity? So too India and Australia?
          Seriously, is this what u are saying?

          Do u know anything about the battles in the coral sea? did u know the USA did not need to fight for us? UK didnt fight for us they preferred to save India!

          The USA did not need to defend Australia yet they did and this was the cause of the ANZUS treaty!
          So youre saying, we will ally with China for economic reasons? thats what youre saying here? That money talks and treaties, ethics, friendship, being saved doesnt count?

          Im ashamed of you!

          Youve been sucked in by this website! Brainwashed!
          Yes its good to support Russian and Syria here but the USA saved us dude and u are preferring China!

          Shame on you!

          • Sinbad2

            I am so fed up with the BS that America fought for Australia.
            America fought for America, when Australia asked for American troops, because ours were fighting for Britain, the US REFUSED.

            When Australia arranged to buy nuclear armed Bloodhound missiles from Britain, the US got the deal stopped.
            When Australia was going to merge West Papua with East Papua to rejoin New Guinea, the US vetoed it. Why, because the US wanted the gold, but didn’t want to pay for it. Australia is the largest exporter of LNG, the Americans pay us $10 million a year. The second biggest producer of LNG, Qatar earns $40 billion a year.

            If you bothered to read real history, instead of the Hollywood version of history you would now I speak the truth.

          • Justin

            Mate, the UK REFUSED to allow our trained troops to go back home from Europe to defend our homeland! thats what happened!

            Thats why we celebrate those on the Kokoda trail! BECAUSE THEY WERE ARMY RESERVES!!!!

            They were just normal working people and not well trained soldiers yet they believe because they were from different fields of life is WHAT SAVED THEM because of their tactics (extremely non-military) that won the day!

            So the kokoda trail along with america’s help in the coral sea saved us!
            They couldnt take new guinea and setup a forward base!

            America took back Guam and were able to help! They took what they had remaining after the japs bombed pearl harbour (which was their aircraft carriers) and helped us with 2 vs 3 of the japs carriers!

            Yet they could have used those carriers in the battle of midway which they were outnumbered there too! They risked a lot for us! and idiots like u forget!
            “We shall NEVER forget”!
            Fucking traitor!

            Bloodhound missiles were developed HERE in Woomera by the Brits but the US missiles were better and cheaper! So there goes another one of ur fake news comments!

            As for the spoils of war! Thats why they say “the spoils of war”! someone needs to take the winnings otherwise whats the point in fighting in the first place! Remember, the USA was attacked first pre-emptively! And so were we! OR DID U FORGET???

            “AUSTRALIA IS THE LARGEST EXPORTER OF LNG”!
            BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!

            PROVE IT!!!!!!!!

          • Sinbad2

            “Fucking traitor!”
            I served from 1969 until 1975, how about you, ever put your money where your mouth is?

            I mean how old are you?
            You sound like your entire history education is made up of movies and BS.

          • Justin

            read carefully! “LNG”!
            The “L” means “liquified”!
            Transported by ship!

            OF COURSE AUSTRALIA TRANSPORTS GAS BY SHIP YOU IDIOT!!!!
            WE ARE AN ISLAND U FUCK WIT!!

            We are NOT the largest exporter of Natural Gas! Not even close!

            Also, when u send a link via reuters, u are sending a Rothschild link!
            Do u like quoting the Rothschilds?

            So if u are bragging about Australia being a big liquid gas exporter its because we have to traverse oceans to get it to our customers! Because we are a continent! Would Russia need to do it? Saudi? Venezeula? USA? (who will beat us for sure soon) Baku? They send theirs in pipelines as a gas!

            No need to brag u idiot hahahaha!
            Qatar ships far more gas than we do via pipes! Thats why this war in Syria is taking place! Do u know how much more expensive it is to ship gas via sea going vessels? this is nothing to brag about! The ONLY reason people buy our gas is because they want to diversify (not be so dependent) on a single nation so that the nation who sells it doesnt gain political power over them! Which is why Europe was backing the Qatar pipeline (ISIS) and started a coup in Ukraine (Russian pipelines)

            As for ur service……well done!
            As for referring China over the USA i still say that u are a fucking moron and u need to see a Doctor!

            I will never forget u said this!

            “During the course of the war, these two geographically isolated nations faced the threat of direct attack for the first time in their histories as modern states. As the Japanese expanded south into the Pacific Ocean, mainland Australia and especially the city of Darwin suffered frequent Japanese air raids in 1942 and 1943. After the sudden fall of the strategically important British colony of Singapore to the Japanese on February 15, 1942, the Antipodean nations expressed concern that the British Government was too focused on the war in Europe to protect its colonies properly and they began for the first time to look to the United States to help ensure their security.”

            UK abandoned us and wouldnt let us bring our troops back from Europe!
            So we used Reserves! (accountants, farmers, carpenters etc)

            US had far less carriers and ships because the japs bombed them!
            YET THEY CAME TO SAVE US!

            And YOU, you rat fuck support the Zionist globalist controlled nation of China who has a TERRIBLE human rights record AGAINST THEIR OWN FUCKING PEOPLE AND A PRESIDENT FOR LIFE!

            CIA is mossad! Globalist OWN the CIA and Mossad! (jews)

            Globalists (jews) plan is for china to be the super power!
            They want the world to be the same as china! (u fuckin idiot)
            They want the UN to be the worlds ultimate power (unelected, prints the money and controls all other unions such as the EU and the others which are to come)!

            So, since Jan 2017 Trump and Putin are allied! but the MSM is making it out to be “russian collusion) when in fact the the deep state wanted hillary to win and it was the CHINESE funding and colluding with the CLINTONS!

            u can hate the USA because the country has been MOSSAD owned for many decades! in modern times only 3 good presidents!

            JFK, Reagan, Trump!

            All assassinated or attempted! (Trumps airforce one had a missile shot at it just off the coast of Washington state and also near Hawaii)!

            So the BAD USA that u hate so much which was run by jewish Globalists WERE TRANSFERRING AMERICA’S EMPIRE OVER TO CHINA!!!!

            Now the GOOD old USA that SAVED US in WW2 is back! And it is fighting an intelligence war and a hidden war against China and the former CIA, FBI, DOJ, DNI and Mossad!

            Do u fucking understand??????//?????

            You and i are on the same side! the only problem is that you dont know that China is the bad guy who was working with Mossad and the CIA and globalist!

            like i said….. im on your side! BUT YOURE NOT!

    • Ewan

      And thats exactly what is already happening. The US as a superpower is waning in influence and the proof thereof is seen in the dissent by traditional client states like the Phillipines etc

  • You can call me Al

    The hostiry and long term effects of a brutal and vile war, can never be understood by the mindless cretins in the US, because they have never been attacked in their homes, cities and Country; they spew out ridiculous statements like this prick “Andrew Yeo, an associate professor of politics and director of Asian Studies at the Catholic University of America.” stating that South Korea and Japan can be and should be best buddies, because the US want them to be.

    China and both South Korea and Japan are making inwards towards a deeper friendship on their own, as is the South and North Korea…. my recommendation would be to keep the Yankers out of everything.

  • John

    South Korea could do itself the biggest of favors by settling things with North Korea. This would clear up any real security concerns. Japan is a security story that ended in 1945, in South Korea’s favor. My take. I wish well to all.

    • Sinbad2

      The Korea’s would have reunited decades ago, if the US had allowed it.

      • Justin

        You are correct here but what u dont know is that the CIA runs North korea!

        Why China, the CIA, Mossad ARE ALL ONE!!!!

        THINK!!!!

        DIGITAL, COMMUNIST, PRISON!!!

        Why did the Globalists choose China?
        Why did former American Presidents (Clintons and Obamas) create trade policies that forced companies to China?

        THINK!!!!!

    American stupidity. US bases are in South Korea only to protect them against Japan, seen from an Eastern point of view.
    Obama´s sick view that a rapist victim should meet with her rapist, talk it over and then they can just be friends, is typical liberal perversity.

    • Ewan

      US bases are in SK to ratchet up tensions in the region and sell weapons to SK and Japan by making China the next Bogeyman and lie about NK. Finally, a SK president is not that deep up Uncle Sam’s butt. Count on the US to sabotage the relationship soon.

    • Sinbad2

      The US bases are in South Korea to oppress Koreans and use them as cannon fodder against China.

  • Sinbad2

    South Korea is in a difficult situation, they would like to reunite with the North, but they rely on sales of over $40 billion to the US, that the US would embargo if the 2 Korea’s became one without the US ruling over them.
    Sooner or later one of Americas major colonies(Germany, Japan, Korea) will demand freedom, but nobody wants to make the first move and risk getting Iraq’d.

  • Ewan

    Uniting Japan and SK would require amazing diplomacy.The US is incapable of of this level of diplomacy – it has never needed diplomacy – its diplomats are just thugs in suits (Pompeo). NK outsmarted Trump diplomatically. Today NK and SK look toward a future alliance that will eventually squeeze the US out of the Korean peninsula for good. US power is waning.This is a limp dick effort to maintain dominance in that region. The losers will be Japan.
