Can Kim trust Trump?

All it would take would be some pretext alleging that Pyongyang is up to no good, and suddenly the deal could be off with the articulation of Trump’s pen
by FRANK SELLERSJune 13, 2018, 06:40
US President Donald J. Trump actually followed through on his meeting with Korean leader Kim Jong Un, despite the on again off again track record of talks between the two leaders. Not only that, he actually didn’t just get up and walk out, as he had threatened to do, if his gut didn’t signal to him that the discussions were going to bear fruit. But as we know, Trump loves the shock and awe factor, and that’s part of how he operates. He likes to create conditions of suspense so that everyone sits on the edge of their seats wondering what he’s going to do, so that whatever he does is like a bolt from the blue. And that’s sort of what happened here. But the story hasn’t concluded yet. The meetings were surprising in that they occurred, in and of themselves, but the outcome isn’t as much surprising, largely because there wasn’t a whole lot of room for legitimate and meaningful progress towards any actual goals being accomplished on such an initial meeting.
When the French President Emmanuel Macron travelled to DC to butter up Trump in an effort to secure the preservation of the nuclear non proliferation deal with Iran, not much was accomplished, except for the usual ‘maybe, maybe not’ routine, although it’s not as though, even if Trump were indeed willing at some point to take that path, that Trump would have actually committed to sticking with the deal because of the relations between the two leaders, which were apparently improved considerably by their meetings, so that he would sign on to something meaningful in renewing the agreement. Although in the case of North Korea here, we do at least have Trump’s signature on a statement of intent to push forward with negotiations to iron out a peace agreement, an apparent end to America’s provocative activities on the peninsula, and the eventual full denuclearization of the North Korean regime.

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.
President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and sincere exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S.-DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula. President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.-DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:
1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

SP -- Manlio Dinucci -- El Arte de la Guerra -- Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea riñen pero están juntos contra Rusia y China


Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea riñen pero están juntos contra Rusia y China

En este periodo de cambios acelerados en las posiciones internacionales, es importante no dejarse cegar por tal o mas cual elemento y mantener una visión de conjunto de todo lo que va aconteciendo. Observando simultáneamente lo que sucede en el G7, la OTAN y la Organización de Cooperación de Shanghai (OCS), el geógrafo italiano Manlio Dinucci muestra la dirección que han escogido las potencias occidentales.

Reunidos en Bruselas, el 8 de junio de 2018, los miembros de la OTAN se dotaban de nuevos medios para contrarrestar el desarrollo de Rusia. Mientras el general francés Denis Mercier y el secretario de Defensa estadounidense James Mattis (en la foto) se saludaban en Bruselas con este apretón de manos, en Quebec los líderes del G7 protagonizaban una riña sobre aranceles.
Mientras el G7 parece a punto de estallar por cuestiones de derechos de aduana, las mismas potencias occidentales que reñían en Quebec cerraban filas en Bruselas reforzando la OTAN y su red de asociados.
La proposición táctica de Donald Trump de reinstaurar el G8 –incorporando a Rusia en un G7+1… y separándola de China– fue rechazada por los líderes europeos y por la propia Unión Europea, que temen verse traicionados más tarde por algún tipo de arreglo de Washington con Moscú. El único que aprobó inicialmente la proposición fue el nuevo primer ministro italiano, a quien Trump calificó enseguida de «buen muchacho», antes de invitarlo a la Casa Blanca.

The Art of War 

The USA and the EU quarrel, 
but remain united against Russia and China 

Manlio Dinucci 

While the G7 is fissuring over the war on customs duties, the same conflicting actors are regrouping to reinforce NATO and its network of partners.

Trump's tactical proposal to restore the G8 - aimed at harnessing Russia to a G7 + 1, thus separating it from China - was rejected by European leaders and even the EU itself, who fear being overridden by Washington-Moscow negotiations.

However, the proposition was approved by the new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Trump called him a “good boy” and invited him to the White House.

Nonetheless, this remains a communal strategy. This is confirmed by the latest decisions taken by NATO, whose main members are the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Great Britain and Italy, plus Japan as a partner – in other words, all the powers of the G-7.

The meeting of 29 Defense ministers (for Italy Elisabetta Trenta, 5 Stelle), on June 7, unanimously decided:
Ø  to strengthen the anti-Russia command structure by more than 1,200 personnel;

Ø  to set up a new Joint Force Command for the Atlantic, based in Norfolk (USA), against «Russian submarines that threaten maritime communication lines between the United States and Europe»;

Ø  to set up a new Logistics Command, based in Ulm (Germany), as a "deterrent" against Russia, with the task of "moving troops faster across Europe in any conflict".

"Military mobility" is at the heart of the NATO-EU cooperation, which will be strengthened by a new agreement next July.

By 2020, NATO will deploy in Europe, 30 mechanised battalions, 30 air squadrons and 30 combat vessels, ready to use within 30 days or less against Russia.

To this end, as requested by the US, the European allies and Canada have increased their military spending by 87 billion dollars since 2014 and are committed to increasing it even more. Germany will take it in 2019 to an average of 114 million Euros a day and plans to increase it by 80% by 2024.

Germany, France, Great Britain, Canada and Italy, while they quarrel with the US at the G7 in Canada about customs taxes, in Europe are participating under US command in the Saber Strike excercise which mobilises 18,000 soldiers from 19 countries. The excercise was scheduled between 3 and 15 June in Poland and the Baltic, close to the Russian territory.

The same six members of the G7, plus Japan, will be participating in the Pacific, still under US command, in RIMPAC 2018, the largest naval exercise in the world, aimed at China.

In these 'war games', from Europe to the Pacific, Israeli forces are participating for the first time.

The Western powers, divided by contrasting interests, are composing a united front in order to hold on, by any means necessary – war and more war - to their imperial domination of the world, which is threatened by the emergence of new state and social subjects.

At the same time as the G7 was splitting on the question of customs duties in Canada, China and Russia signed new economic agreements in Beijing. China is Russia’s biggest trade partner and Russia is China’s largest fuel supplier. Trade between the two countries will increase this year to around 100 billion dollars.

China and Russia cooperate in the development of the New Silk Road through 70 countries of Asia, Europe and Africa. The project - which contributes to "a multipolar world order and more democratic international relations" (Xi Jinping) - is opposed by both the US and the European Union - 27 of the 28 EU ambassadors in Beijing (with the exception of Hungary) claim that the project violates free trade and aims to divide Europe.

It is not only the G7, but the unipolar world order imposed by the West, which is under threat.

DE -- Manlio Dinucci -- Die Kunst des Krieges -- USA und EU im Streit aber vereint gegen Russland und China

Die Kunst des Krieges

USA und EU im Streit 
aber vereint gegen Russland und China

Manlio Dinucci

Während die G-7 als Folge des Zollkieges zerbrechen, finden sich die Beteiligten wieder zusammen, indem sie die NATO und ihr Partnernetzwerk stärken.

Trumps taktischer Vorschlag, die G-8 - durch Einbinden Russlands in eine G-7+1 - wieder herzustellen und Russland so von China zu trennen, wurde von den europäischen Führern und der EU selbst abgelehnt, die befürchten, dass sie durch Verhandlungen zwischen Washington und Moskau übergangen werden.

Stattdessen genehmigte dies der neue italienische Premierminister Conte. Trump nannte ihn „einen guten Jungen“ und lud ihn ins Weiße Haus ein. 

Jedoch bleibt die übliche Strategie. Dies wird durch die jüngsten Beschlüsse der NATO bestätigt, deren wichtigste Mitglieder die Vereinigten Staaten, Kanada, Deutschland, Frankreich, Großbritannien und Italien sind, sowie Japan als Partner, d.h. alle G7-Mächte.

Das Treffen der 29 Verteidigungsminister (für Italien Elisabetta Trenta, 5-Sterne-Bewegung) hat am 7. Juni einstimmig beschlossen, die Kommandostruktur in der Anti-Russland-Funktion zu verstärken und den Stab um mehr als 1.200 Mitarbeiter aufzustocken; ein neues gemeinsames Kommando für den Atlantik in Norfolk (USA) gegen "die russischen U-Boote, die die Linien der maritimen Kommunikation zwischen den Vereinigten Staaten und Europa bedrohen", einzurichten; ein neues logistisches Kommando in Ulm (Deutschland) einzurichten, als "Abschreckung" gegen Russland, mit der Aufgabe, "die Truppen in jedem Konflikt schneller durch Europa zu bewegen".

Die “militärische Mobilität” steht im Mittelpunkt der Zusammenarbeit zwischen der NATO und der EU, die durch ein neues Abkommen im nächsten Juli verstärkt wird.

Die NATO wird bis 2020 in Europa 30 mechanisierte [Panzer-] Bataillone, 30 Luftgeschwader und 30 Kampfschiffe stationieren, die in höchstens 30 Tagen gegen Russland einsatzbereit sind.

Zu diesem Zweck haben die europäischen Verbündeten, wie von den USA gefordert, ihre Militärausgaben seit 2014 um 87 Milliarden Dollar erhöht und sich verpflichtet, sie weiter zu erhöhen. Deutschland wird es 2019 auf durchschnittlich 114 Millionen Euro pro Tag bringen und plant, dies bis 2024 um 80% zu erhöhen.

Während sie in Kanada beim G-7-Gipfel mit den USA über Abgaben streiten, nehmen Deutschland, Frankreich, Großbritannien, Kanada und Italien in Europa unter US-Kommando am Saber Strike-Manöver teil, das 18.000 Soldaten aus 19 Ländern mobilisiert und vom 3. bis 15. Juni nahe dem russischen Territorium in Polen und dem Baltikum stattfindet,.

Dieselben Länder, sowie Japan, die anderen sechs Mitglieder der G-7, werden im Pazifik, ebenfalls unter dem Kommando der USA, am der RIMPAC 2018 teilnehmen, der weltweit größten Anti-China-Marineübung.

An diesen Kriegsübungen von Europa bis zum Pazifik nehmen erstmalig israelische Streitkräfte teil.

Die Westmächte, gespalten durch gegensätzliche Interessen, bilden eine gemeinsame Front, um mit allen Mitteln – mehr und mehr Krieg – die imperiale Herrschaft der Welt aufrecht zu erhalten, die durch die Entstehung neuer staatlicher und sozialer Themen in eine Krise geraten ist.

Zur gleichen Zeit, als die Frage der Zölle die G-7 in Kanada spaltete, unterzeichneten China und Russland in Peking neue Wirtschaftsabkommen. China ist Russlands größter Handelspartner und Russland ist Chinas größter Energielieferant. Der Handel zwischen den beiden Ländern wird in diesem Jahr auf ca. 100 Milliarden Dollar ansteigen.

China und Russland kooperieren bei der Entwicklung der Neuen Seidenstraße durch 70 Länder in Asien, Europa und Afrika. Das Projekt, das zu „einer multipolaren Weltordnung und demokratischeren internationalen Beziehungen“ (Xi Jinping) beiträgt, wird von den USA und der EU abgelehnt. 27 der 28 EU-Botschafter in Peking (außer Ungarn) bemängeln, dass das Projekt den Freihandel verletze und Europas Spaltung zum Ziel hat.

Nicht nur die G-7 sondern die unipolare Weltordnung des Westens ist in der Krise.

Thierry Meyssan -- Why is Washington pressuring Jordan?

Why is Washington pressuring Jordan?

Are the Jordanian demonstrations a sign of a new episode of the Arab Spring, or, on the contrary, are they a means of pressuring King Abdallah II to accept the US plan for Palestine ?


JPEG - 47.7 kb
At the beginning of June, Jordan was shaken by a week of peaceful demonstrations against a project for a fiscal law which planned for a rise in taxes of between 5 % and 25 % for all persons with an annual salary of more than 8,000 dinars ($11,245). The demonstrators, whose quality of life had suffered greatly from the consequences of the Western war against Syria, demanded, and obtained, the resignation of the Prime Minister and the withdrawal of the project for law.
In reality, the Kingdom hardly had a choice – the plan was in conformity with the engagements taken in 2016 during the subscription for a loan from the International Monetary Fund. It had been rejected several times because of the war, and had only been presented when Parliament was closing. Its modification would have supposed a complete change of economic policy, which is not on the agenda. The only solution would be to obtain financial support from Saudi Arabia in order to reimburse the debt.


At midday on Friday 5 February, 2016 Julian Assange, John Jones QC, Melinda Taylor, Jennifer Robinson and Baltasar Garzon will be speaking at a press conference at the Frontline Club on the decision made by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention on the Assange case.
