The Coup against PM Harold Wilson


The FACT Alluded to by the drama, "A very British Coup" .....which was a little bit more optimistic because the Labour leader played by the Irish actor Ray McAnally prevails and does not resign or succumb to the Deep State.

The British Deep State, and the CIA were not happy with Harold Wilson, as they considered him a Soviet Spy.

So they destabilised and removed him from power.

These sort of things happen in the criminal UK State, along with elite Paedophilia and satanism.

Somebody in the UK is desperate.

Vote Labour, and things will not be so bad as they have been with 7 years of Tory rule.....though the crimes of the elite will of course continue even under Labour.

The Coup against Wilson, resulted in 4 conservative administrations.(defato one party dictatorship)

Rod Rosenstein is Bruno....the weasel fifth column in the Trump administration.

Trumps likes Jews

Image result for Jews

Trump likes extremist peculiar Jews.....like Stephen Miller, and others.....who looks and acts sociopathetic, not affable, and Gobbels grandsonesque.

Go on........have fun speaking with Stephen Miller, sitting down in a quiet room (it will be pure entertainment.)

Steven Bannon.......our resident what???? Grim Reaper/Ewok? Go on........have fun speaking with Bannon, sitting down in a quiet room (it will be pure entertainment.)

Maybe it is to do with his fragile ego that he cannot surround himself with more perfect Indo-European males from the American masses.

Image result for John Stockwell cia

No, he prefers failed obscure Jews like Joseph Lieberman( Lover of people in German-Yiddish) who is going to head the FBI.....that should be fun.

His wife Melania, whose parents may be Jews from Eastern Europe, and Communists (The first lady's parents are Communists)

His son in Law is an Orthadox Jew, as is his favourite daughter, and they are purportedly the secret back seat drivers of his administration, and President Jared Kushner is linked to George Soros loans, debt and connections.

For Trump, proven TRUSTED long term friends aren't worth considering for his adminsitration  unlike most Presidents who bring in their private gang to run the country. In the case of Dubya, it was his fathers gang.

No, for Trump what counts are his FAMILY, quisling swamp insiders and billionaires, and Deep State Generals.....the last his greatest threat.

Not Roger Stone, Rudy Guiliani, Mike Cernovich, Robert Steele or Alex Jones..........and other diehard Trumpers......and you wonder why he fails!

He has appointed another Jew named Rod Rosenstein to the Justice Department, who with perfect timing appointed Robert Mueller to head a new Witch Hunt against Trump just a few minutes after Trump fires Pizzagate Howdie Doodie Comey.

Fuck.....Fuck......how much cock sucking of the Jew does Trump like?

From Mike Whitney: 

"Let’s say you own a big US corporation but need help managing your domestic accounts. So you hire a bright, young man named Bruno who just graduated from Harvard Business School with a Masters in corporate finance.  And the first day on the job, you discover that Bruno has secretly employed a private detective who has obtained subpoena power to dig through all of your business accounts, all your investments past and present, all your taxes going back decades, and any personal transactions you might have made in the last 20 years or so.  And, oh yeah, and he also has the authority to interview anyone he chooses, including people who might have a grudge against you or who lost money on one of your dodgy real estate deals or who simply doesn’t like the way you comb your hair. 

And, of course, Bruno knows that the information he gathers is going to be deliberately tweaked to look as suspicious as possible, then it’s going to be leaked to the press and splashed across the headlines, then it’s going to be presented as evidence to a Grand Jury, and then, finally– after months of excruciating testimony and nonstop mud-slinging– it will be used in criminal proceedings that will lead your removal as CEO of your corporation.

How would you feel about that?  

Would you feel like your new employee had betrayed you? 

Would you think that Bruno was a back-stabbing scoundrel who was secretly working for your enemies?"

When a president makes an appointment, like Deputy Attorney General, the assumption is that the appointee is going to play for the home team. That doesn’t mean that Rosenstein was expected to do anything dishonest or illegal. Not at all. He was simply expected to be moderately loyal and defend the administration against politically-motivated attacks. That’s it. But that was too much for Rosenstein whose first big decision as Deputy AG was to pull the rug out from under his boss, betray his team, and sabotage the administration’s entire political agenda. He blew up the whole damn operation with one sweep of the hand. Kaboom.
By appointing a Special Counsel, Rosenstein not only destroyed any chance Trump had at achieving his policy objectives,  he also effectively rolled-back the results of the 2016 presidential election.
Not bad for a day’s work, eh?
We can now be 100 percent certain that Trump’s political agenda will never get off the ground. His tax plan, his infrastructure plan, his health care plan; all of them have gone up in smoke thanks to Rosenstein. Which is good, right, since the Trump’s “pamper the rich and screw-the-working-man” plan was crappy policy anyway? So, good riddance.
But was that Rosenstein’s decision to make? Is that how democracy is supposed to work? Does one unelected, meddlesome lawyer at the DOJ get to overturn the results of the election and bring the government to a screeching halt?

No. That’s not how the system is supposed to work. The president is supposed to set the agenda because, well, because he’s the president and that’s what the people voted for. It’s called democracy. But Rosenstein doesn’t like democracy, he’d rather do the work of his paymasters who want to see Trump drawn and quartered before he’s given the boot."

Interesting to find out which bastard advised Trump to hire him in April.

USA War Crimes in Korea


The Korean Atrocity: Forgotten US War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity

By Yves Engler at 4th Media and Global Research

After the Communists took control of China in 1949 the US tried to encircle the country. They supported Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan, built military bases in Japan and backed a right-wing dictator in Thailand. One of Washington’s early objectives in Vietnam was to “establish a pro-Western state on China’s southern periphery.” The success of China’s nationalist revolution also spurred the 1950-53 Korean War in which eight Canadian warships and 27,000 Canadian troops participated. The war left as many as four million dead.

At the end of World War II the Soviets occupied the northern part of Korea, which borders Russia. US troops controlled the southern part of the country. A year into the occupation, a cable to Ottawa from Canadian diplomats in Washington, Ralph Collins and Herbert Norman, reported on the private perceptions of US officials: “[There is] no evidence of the three Russian trained Korean divisions which have been reported on various occasions … there seems to be a fair amount of popular support for the Russian authorities in northern Korea, and the Russian accusations against the conservative character of the United States occupation in civilian Korea had a certain amount of justification, although the situation was improving somewhat. There had been a fair amount of repression by the Military Government of left-wing groups, and liberal social legislation had been definitely resisted.”

Noam Chomsky provides a more dramatic description of the situation: “When US forces entered Korea in 1945, they dispersed the local popular government, consisting primarily of antifascists who resisted the Japanese, and inaugurated a brutal repression, using Japanese fascist police and Koreans who had collaborated with them during the Japanese occupation. About 100,000 people were murdered in South Korea prior to what we call the Korean War, including 30-40,000 killed during the suppression of a peasant revolt in one small region, Cheju Island.”

In sharp contrast to its position on Japan and Germany, Washington wanted the (Western dominated) UN to take responsibility for Korea in 1947. The Soviets objected, claiming the international organization had no jurisdiction over post- WWII settlement issues (as the US had argued for Germany and Japan). Instead, Moscow proposed that all foreign forces withdraw from Korea by January 1948. Washington demurred, convincing member states to create the United Nations Temporary Commission on Korea (UNTCOK) to organize elections in the part of Korea occupied by the US. For its part, the Soviet bloc boycotted UNTCOK. Canada joined UNTCOK even though Prime Minister Mackenzie King noted privately “the [US] State Department was simply using the United Nations as an arm of that office to further its own policies.”

The UN sponsored election in South Korea led to the long-term division of that country and Canada’s involvement in a conflict that would cause untold suffering. On May 10, 1948 the southern part of Korea held UNTCOK sponsored elections. In the lead-up to the election leftwing parties were harassed in a campaign to “remove Communism” from the south. As a result leftwing parties refused to participate in elections “wrought with problems” that “provoked an uprising on the island of Cheju, off Korea’s southern coast, which was brutally repressed.”

After the poll Canada was among the first countries to recognize the Republic of Korea in the south, effectively legitimizing the division of the country. External Affairs minister Lester Pearson sent Syngman Rhee, who became president, a note declaring “full recognition by the Government of Canada of the Republic of Korea as an independent sovereign State with jurisdiction over that part of the Korean peninsula in which free elections were held on May 10 1948, under the observation of the United Nations Temporary Commission.” Conversely, Ottawa refused to recognize the North, which held elections after the South, and opposed its participation in UNTCOK reports. For Pearson the South held “free elections” while those in the North “had not been held in a democratic manner” since the Soviets did not allow UNTCOK to supervise them. After leaving office Pearson contradicted this position, admitting “Rhee’s government was just as dictatorial as the one in the North, just as totalitarian. Indeed, it was more so in some ways.”

The official story is that the Korean War began when the Soviet-backed North invaded the South on June 25, 1950. The US then came to the South’s aid. As is the case with most official US history the story is incomplete, if not downright false. Korea: Division, Reunification, and US foreign Policy notes: “The best explanation of what happened on June 25 is that Syngman Rhee deliberately initiated the fighting and then successfully blamed the North. The North, eagerly waiting for provocation, took advantage of the southern attack and, without incitement by the Soviet Union, launched its own strike with the objective of capturing Seoul. Then a massive U.S. intervention followed.”

Korea was Canada’s first foray into UN peacekeeping/peacemaking and it was done at Washington’s behest. US troops intervened in Korea and then Washington moved to have the UN support their action, not the other way around.
The UN resolution in support of military action in Korea referred to “a unified command under the United States.” Incredibly, United Nations forces were under US General Douglas MacArthur’s control yet he was not subject to the UN. Canadian Defence Minister Brooke Claxton later admitted “the American command sometimes found it difficult to consider the Commonwealth division and other units coming from other nations as other than American forces.”

After US forces invaded, Ottawa immediately sent three gunboats. Once it became clear US forces would not be immediately victorious, Canada sent thousands of grounds troops into an extremely violent conflict.

Two million North Korean civilians, 500,000 North Korean soldiers, one million Chinese soldiers, one million South Korean civilians, ten thousand South Korean soldiers and 95,000 UN soldiers (516 Canadians) died in the war. The fighting on the ground was ferocious as was the UN air campaign. US General MacArthur instructed his bombers “to destroy every means of communication and every installation, factory, city and village” in North Korea except for hydroelectric plants and the city of Rashin, which bordered China and the Soviet Union, respectively.

New York Times reporter, George Barrett, described the scene in a North Korean village after it was captured by UN forces in February 1951:“A napalm raid hit the village three or four days ago when the Chinese were holding up the advance, and nowhere in the village have they buried the dead because there is nobody left to do so. This correspondent came across one old women, the only one who seemed to be left alive, dazedly hanging up some clothes in a blackened courtyard filled with the bodies of four members of her family. The inhabitants throughout the village and in the fields were caught and killed and kept the exact postures they had held when the napalm struck — a man about to get on his bicycle, fifty boys and girls playing in an orphanage, a housewife strangely unmarked, holding in her hand a page torn from a Sears Roebuck catalogue crayoned at Mail Order No. 3,811,294 for a $2.98 ‘bewitching bed jacket — coral.’ There must be almost two hundred dead in the tiny hamlet.”

Canadian troops denigrated the “yellow horde” of North Korean and Chinese “chinks” they fought. One Canadian colonel wrote about the importance of defensive positions to “kill at will the hordes that rush the positions.” A pro-military book notes dryly that “some [soldiers] allowed their Western prejudices to develop into open contempt for the Korean people.”

Cold War Canada summarizes the incredible violence unleashed by UN forces in Korea: “The monstrous effects on Korean civilians of the methods of warfare adopted by the United Nations — the blanket fire bombing of North Korean cities, the destruction of dams and the resulting devastation of the food supply and an unremitting aerial bombardment more intensive than anything experienced during the Second World War. At one point the Americans gave up bombing targets in the North when their intelligence reported that there were no more buildings over one story high left standing in the entire country … the overall death toll was staggering: possibly as many as four million people. About three million were civilians (one out of every ten Koreans). Even to a world that had just begun to recover from the vast devastation of the Second World War, Korea was a man-made hell with a place among the most violent excesses of the 20th century.”

But, it was all worth it, according to the Conservative government. After all South Korea has given us ‘Gangnam Style’.


Julian Assange is innocent

Swedish prosecutors drop rape investigation involving WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange

By Ellen Whinnett of News Corps Australia.

JULIAN Assange has given a clenched-fist salute as he welcomed a Swedish decision to drop a rape investigation against him as “an important victory”.
Ecuador urged Britain to “grant safe passage” out of the country to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after Sweden dropped a warrant that drove him to take refuge in Ecuador’s London embassy.
“The European Arrest Warrant no longer holds. The UK must now grant safe passage to Mr Julian Assange,” Minister Guillaume Long wrote on Twitter.
Swedish prosecutors earlier announced that had dropped a seven-year rape investigation into Mr Assange.
But the WikiLeaks founder says his legal fight is not over and he cannot forgive the “terrible injustice” done to him across the last seven years of his life.
Appearing on a balcony of the Ecuadorean Embassy in London on Friday the 45-year-old told supporters and a large media throng he had been detained and slandered as his children grew up without him.
“That’s not something I can forgive, it’s not something I can forget.” Mr Assange been holed up in the embassy since mid-2012 when he sought asylum there to avoid extradition to Sweden to face accusations he raped a woman in 2010 in Stockholm.
Earlier, Swedish chief prosecutor Marianne Ny said at a press conference in Stockholm this that she believed, “based on the evidence, that probable cause for this crime still exists.’’
But she concluded that Mr Assange would not be returned to Sweden with co-operation from Ecuador, in whose London embassy Mr Assange has been holed up since 2012.
“My assessment is that the transfer cannot be executed in the foreseeable future,” Ms Ny said.
Mr Assange tweeted his anger at being “detained for seven years”.
“Detained for 7 years without charge by (sic) while my children grew up and my name was slandered. I do not forgive or forget,” he wrote.
Detained for 7 years without charge by while my children grew up and my name was slandered. I do not forgive or forget.
The decision also angered the lawyer representing his alleged rape victim.
Lawyer Elisabeth Fritz told the independent: “It is a scandal that a suspected rapist can disregard the judiciary and thus avoid trial.
“Proof of evidence in the case is available and that evidence should have been tried in court the wait has been long."

The lawyer said prosecutors should not have “given up the case” before it reached court and accused Mr Assange of deliberately obstructing the judicial process because he was “afraid”.
Juan Branco, a lawyer representing Mr Assange, said he would now seek political asylum in France, though did not elaborate on how he planned to get there without being arrested.
It is still unlikely Mr Assange will leave the Ecuadorean Embassy, where he has been holed up for five years, because the US remains interested in charging him over the release of secret documents.

Trump learns to bow down very low to shill for ISIS/'al-CIA-duh'

More Obummer 'Change we can believe in'

And yet another 'Peace prize' for the POTUS, this time from the Saudis, the most PEACEFUL nation on earth......don't you know?

Here’s to all that “CHANGE” you voted for. Same as it ever was, same as it ever was… same..as..it..ever..was.

For $350 billion worth of arms, yes I do know.

And it would not be complete without the usual elite occult Satanic symbolism.

Whats on the menu?

As Trump relishes Obummers role, and so he divorces himself from his base for 2020.


ISIS and 'al-CIA-duh' get a massive arms boost from the USA

Well nobody is perfect....I thought that the deal would be around $100 billion, but it turns out that the real figure over 10 years will be around $350 billion, according to USA government sources.

I am going to guess and say that that is far more than the lend-lease the FDR USA government gave to the UK, under attack from the Nazis....1940--1945 (The greatest military machine on earth up until 1943). Others with more time and RESOURCES can do the research.

Again I am going to guess and say that this is WAY MORE than the USA has ever given Israel in aggregate since its creation.

Whats going on?

Is Saudi Arabia about to be invaded by ......................................?

Saudi Arabia has invaded Yemen....using USA support, and is about to starve the country to death.

Saudi Arabia has invaded some Gulf monarchies, disguised as 'police action' to prevent popular people power protests.

Saudi nationals continue to be the top foreign terrorists in Iraq, since the USA invasion and destruction of that country from 2003.

Saudi Arabia countinues to be the prime sponsor of ISIS.

Saudi Arabia continues to sponsor the ever waning 'al-CIA-duh' from the 1990's and Osama Bin Laden the Saudi national

15 Saudi nationals allegedly and magically participated in 9/11(its impossible because to fly a modern fully computerised plane you need 3 fully qualified highly trained people in their 40's and 50's----a lone Arab with a little bit of Cessna training in his 20's can't just hop into an USA cockpit and do it even magically) 

The 28 pages redacted from the 9/11 Commission report is about Saudi Arabia.

What these little headlines tell us is that the CIA has USED Saudi Arabia as its butt buddy to commit state terrorism by the USA, for the USA in the Greater Middle, SE Asia, East Asia, Central Asia, Russia, Europe, Africa and North America.

So the CIA wins here.....and in return the CIA and its dogs will cease hounding Trump with wild accusations of being a Russia puppet. The death grip is taken off as long as Trump complies with CIA/Deep State wishes of continued Islamist Jihad. Professor Alan Dershowitz of the Deep State/Democrats, and the premier legal mind from Harvard can go on Fox news and tell the audience with a straight face that Trump is unimpeachable. Joe Leibermann will now head the FBI, with permission from the Deep State to round up all Trump critics once in for all.....Gestapho style.

The Jew will back Trump even more.

But this is not good for Saudi Arabia, or the USA.

To be 'set up' by the CIA is to be had by the CIA.

For Saudi Arabia to have the pretensions and expenditure of a 'Great power' and to posture as such is dangerous and haram. It contains 23 million Arab people......and a not too great military. What is worse is that the Saudi State is in permanent Jihad with its Muslim brothers and sisters on the orders of the CIA. To fight a religious sectarian war on the orders of the CIA is indeed sad. To rely on foreign mercenaries to extensively conduct its wars is sad. The keepers of the two most holy places on earth, behaving in such a way is sad.

Most of the arms will rust in the desert, as have previous huge purchases such as the $150 billion al-Yamamah arms agreement with the UK state in 1985. Such huge waste, of that which will not be used by ISIS.

Let me elaborate further.

The CIA may say to me that I am the new Persian King Cyrus the Great; or Jesus or a super-natural alien from outer space. Such CIA whispers may flatter me and gain the attention of my enemies, thus serving their agenda of conflict and conflict management between two rival parties.

But it would be FOOLISH and DANGEROUS for me to believe that I am any of them, even if I throw some old bones at such rumors to please the CIA.

For me to believe the dangerous conspiracy rumours of the CIA about me, of what I am really capable of achieveing in life, and false claims of greatness would be ultimately dangerous to me.

I must judge myself of what I am, and not be lectured to by the CIA.

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

“Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.”

A beggar was in the habit of sitting on the side of the road. He had been doing so for the past thirty years. One day, a stranger passed him by. The beggar stretched out his hat and muttered to the man: “Give me some of your loose change.”

The man said to the beggar: “I have nothing to give you, but what is that thing you are sitting on?”

The beggar replied: “It is nothing. It is just an old box that I have been using as a seat for a long time.”

The man asked: “Have you looked inside?”

The beggars shrugged: “No. Why should I? There’s nothing in it.” “Look inside,” the man urged. 

The beggar thought about it and then he got up and lifted the lid. To his astonishment, the box was full of gold. 

You need to look inside the “box” that is yourself. You possess a great treasure inside. You are special person, a unique and honoured creation, distinct from everyone else. You should not stretch out your hand to others and neglect the great treasures that you possess within. 

Your identity is ruined by begging others and belittling yourself before them. It not only affects your public identity, but also how you see yourself.

Like Sufyān b. `Uyaynāh said: “Whoever knows himself is at ease.” Those who are at peace with themselves live easier lives. 

Yahyā b. Mu`ādh al-Rāzī said: “Whoever knows himself, knows his Lord.” This is because knowing yourself is a step on the path of faith. 

This is why Allah says: “And on the Earth are signs for the certain in faith. And in yourselves. Then will you not see?” [
Sūrah al-Dhāriyāt: 20-21

It is dangerous to believe that Saudi Arabia is a great military power that must intervene in ALL countries, and EVEN threaten Russia with terrorism....under the guidence of the CIA.

When you have a population of just 23 million unremarkable uneducated people of the Third World.

When you have such a small military, filled with foreign mercenaries.

When many Saudi men do not do any work, but leisure and pleasure in London and the West.

When there are so many poor people in Saudi Arabia.

A conversation between a Sudanese Shepard and a Saudi SUV driver on his way to Las Vegas.

Do not attempt imperial over-reach, just before the inevitable collapse....when you are not even an Empire in the first place.

YOU love America, and you want to show your love and closeness to America.......they are your best buddies....ALL your petrol money is in their banks and Europe. You all have vast investments in the USA, and palaces and girlfreinds and sports cars.......and you send your children over there to finish their education. That is fine.....it is good to stand with a great empire, like a pleasing subservient vassal...but $350 billion with the coded numbers is dangerous for you.


Decade-Long Deal Largest in US History

Image result for weapons rusting in the desert

by Jason Ditz, antiwar.com
After weeks of figures being thrown around on the deal, the White House has announced this weekend that the US has finalized what is expected to be a $350 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia, the largest arms sale in American history, which they say will provide jobs and enhance “the security relationship” between the nations.
The arms deal will see an immediate purchase of $110 billion in weapons and equipment by the Saudis, and it will continue to grow with service and parts agreements that will bring the overall figure up to $350 billion within a decade, according to most estimates.
Indeed, it’s likely the payday will be bigger than that for US arms makers, as there is already talk of given Israel some additional military aid on top of their already record aid package compensatory for arming the Saudis, and meant to ensure Israel retains an advantage over the rest of the Middle East.
While Trump is eager to tout the economic impact of the arms deal, it also raises questions, as during the campaign, he argued Saudi Arabia had “mastermind 9/11,” and now appears comfortable selling them literally as many arms as they are willing to buy.

Top Lawyer and Democrat--1. Collusion with Russia to win the presidential election is not a crime (No evidence it existed ANYWAY---unless a super fantastic conspiracy was hatched by Hillary corruption, DNC corruption, Comey's investigation timings of Hilary, and Wikileaks dumps of the above....ALL somehow coordinating with each other!!!!!! WITH THE 3 DIMENSTIONAL CONSPIRACY OF THE RUSSIANS-----aren't they so clever these russkies....guess that is why McCain calls Russia a gas station with some ballistic missiles)  2. firing Comey......because he is a no good Obummer appointee??? Is the President obligated to keep him unitil Comey decides to wrap up his Russian investigations in 2050??? Indefintely???? Is the President of the USA, lawfully and constitutionally elected by the popular vote, supposed to hold his domestic and foreign policy in suspenion until the Obummer appointee finally clears him in 2050???

Is this how USA Democracy works??

Trump is a political genius who proceeded to hire swamp beltway insiders into his administration, along with his children.....after his victory.

Not one noticeable Trumper was put into any position of responsibility, save for Steve Bannon who was a Johnny come lately representative of the billionaire Mercers, not necessarily a long term proven Trumper.( In an advisory role)

Then there is Steve Miller, a Jew with a controversial ultra right Gobbels like track record......in an advisary role.

Trumpers are NOT actually running anything in the administration.

Then he becomes surprised by betrayal, and leaks from his admistration which causes a lot of trouble.


Mike Pence sets up a Super PAC, hedging a Trump impeachment?



If President Donald Trump is contemplating talking to the North Korean leader some time in the future, then the South Korean leader MUST talk to him first, before.


 -  More than four decades ago I went to lunch with a diplomatic historian who, like me, was going through Korea-related documents at the National Archives in Washington. He happened to remark that he sometimes wondered whether the Korean Demilitarised Zone might be ground zero for the end of the world. 

This April, Kim In-ryong, a North Korean diplomat at the UN, warned of ‘a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment’. A few days later, President Trump told Reuters that ‘we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea.’ How is it possible that we have come to this? Both the North Korean leader and President Trump come not only to hold the peace of the world in their hands but perhaps the future of the planet. 

We have arrived at this point because of an inveterate unwillingness on the part of Americans to look history in the face.(USA Deep State)
North Korea celebrated the 85th anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People’s Army on 25 April, amid round-the-clock television coverage of parades in Pyongyang and enormous global tension. No journalist seemed interested in asking why it was the 85th anniversary when the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea was only founded in 1948? 

What was really being celebrated was the beginning of the Korean guerrilla struggle against the Japanese in north-east China, officially dated to 25 April 1932. 

After Japan annexed Korea in 1910, many Koreans fled across the border, among them the parents of Kim Il-sung, but it wasn’t until Japan established its puppet state of Manchukuo in March 1932 that the independence movement turned to armed resistance. Kim and his comrades launched a campaign that lasted 13 difficult years, until Japan finally relinquished control of Korea as part of the 1945 terms of surrender. This is the source of the North Korean leadership’s legitimacy in the eyes of its people: they are revolutionary nationalists who resisted their country’s coloniser; they resisted again when a massive onslaught by the US air force during the Korean War razed all their cities, driving the population to live, work and study in subterranean shelters; they have continued to resist the US ever since; and they even resisted the collapse of Western communism – as of this September, the DPRK will have been in existence for as long as the Soviet Union. But it is less a communist country than a garrison state, unlike any the world has seen. Drawn from a population of just 25 million, the North Korean army is the fourth largest in the world, with 1.3 million soldiers – just behind the third largest army, with 1.4 million soldiers, which happens to be the American one. Most of the adult Korean population, men and women, have spent many years in this army: its reserves are limited only by the size of the population.

The PEOPLE in WHITE---"세상은 알아야합니다."
The story of Kim Il-sung’s resistance against the Japanese is surrounded by legend and exaggeration in the North, and general denial in the South. But he was recognisably a hero: he fought for a decade in the harshest winter environment imaginable, with temperatures sometimes falling to 50° below zero. Recent scholarship has shown that Koreans made up the vast majority of guerrillas in Manchukuo, even though many of them were commanded by Chinese officers (Kim was a member of the Chinese Communist Party). Other Korean guerrillas led detachments too – among them Choe Yong-gon, Kim Chaek and Choe Hyon – and when they returned to Pyongyang in 1945 they formed the core of the new regime. Their offspring now constitute a multitudinous elite – the number two man in the government today, Choe Ryong-hae, is Choe Hyon’s son.
Kim’s reputation was inadvertently enhanced by the Japanese, whose newspapers made a splash of the battle between him and the Korean quislings whom the Japanese employed to track down and kill him, all operating under the command of General Nozoe Shotoku, who ran the Imperial Army’s ‘Special Kim Division’. In April 1940 Nozoe’s forces captured Kim Hye-sun, thought to be Kim’s first wife; the Japanese tried in vain to use her to lure Kim out of hiding, and then murdered her. Maeda Takashi headed another Japanese Special Police unit, with many Koreans in it; in March 1940 his forces came under attack from Kim’s guerrillas, with both sides suffering heavy casualties. Maeda pursued Kim for nearly two weeks, before stumbling into a trap. Kim threw 250 guerrillas at 150 soldiers in Maeda’s unit, killing Maeda, 58 Japanese, 17 others attached to the force, and taking 13 prisoners and large quantities of weapons and ammunition.
In September 1939, when Hitler was invading Poland, the Japanese mobilised what the scholar Dae-Sook Suh has described as a ‘massive punitive expedition’ consisting of six battalions of the Japanese Kwantung Army and twenty thousand men of the Manchurian Army and police force in a six-month suppression campaign against the guerrillas led by Kim and Ch’oe Hyon. In September 1940 an even larger force embarked on a counterinsurgency campaign against Chinese and Korean guerrillas: ‘The punitive operation was conducted for one year and eight months until the end of March 1941,’ Suh writes, ‘and the bandits, excluding those led by Kim Il-sung, were completely annihilated. The bandit leaders were shot to death or forced to submit.’ A vital figure in the long Japanese counterinsurgency effort was Kishi Nobusuke, who made a name for himself running munitions factories. Labelled a Class A war criminal during the US occupation, Kishi avoided incarceration and became one of the founding fathers of postwar Japan and its longtime ruling organ, the Liberal Democratic Party; he was prime minister twice between 1957 and 1960. The current Japanese prime minister, Abe Shinzo, is Kishi’s grandson and reveres him above all other Japanese leaders. Trump was having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Abe on 11 February when a pointed message arrived mid-meal, courtesy of Pyongyang: it had just successfully tested a new, solid-fuel missile, fired from a mobile launcher. Kim Il-sung and Kishi are meeting again through their grandsons. Eight decades have passed, and the baleful, irreconcilable hostility between North Korea and Japan still hangs in the air.

In the West, treatment of North Korea is one-sided and ahistorical. No one even gets the names straight. During Abe’s Florida visit, Trump referred to him as ‘Prime Minister Shinzo’. On 29 April, Ana Navarro, a prominent commentator on CNN, said: ‘Little boy Un is a maniac.’ The demonisation of North Korea transcends party lines, drawing on a host of subliminal racist and Orientalist imagery; no one is willing to accept that North Koreans may have valid reasons for not accepting the American definition of reality. Their rejection of the American worldview – generally perceived as indifference, even insolence in the face of overwhelming US power – makes North Korea appear irrational, impossible to control, and therefore fundamentally dangerous.

But if American commentators and politicians are ignorant of Korea’s history, they ought at least to be aware of their own. US involvement in Korea began towards the end of the Second World War, when State Department planners feared that Soviet soldiers, who were entering the northern part of the peninsula, would bring with them as many as thirty thousand Korean guerrillas who had been fighting the Japanese in north-east China. They began to consider a full military occupation that would assure America had the strongest voice in postwar Korean affairs. It might be a short occupation or, as a briefing paper put it, it might be one of ‘considerable duration’; the main point was that no other power should have a role in Korea such that ‘the proportionate strength of the US’ would be reduced to ‘a point where its effectiveness would be weakened’. Congress and the American people knew nothing about this. Several of the planners were Japanophiles who had never challenged Japan’s colonial claims in Korea and now hoped to reconstruct a peaceable and amenable postwar Japan. They worried that a Soviet occupation of Korea would thwart that goal and harm the postwar security of the Pacific. Following this logic, on the day after Nagasaki was obliterated, John J. McCloy of the War Department asked Dean Rusk and a colleague to go into a spare office and think about how to divide Korea. They chose the 38th parallel, and three weeks later 25,000 American combat troops entered southern Korea to establish a military government.

It lasted three years. To shore up their occupation, the Americans employed every last hireling of the Japanese they could find, including former officers in the Japanese military like Park Chung Hee and Kim Chae-gyu, both of whom graduated from the American military academy in Seoul in 1946.

(After a military takeover in 1961 Park became president of South Korea, lasting a decade and a half until his ex-classmate Kim, by then head of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency, shot him dead over dinner one night.)

After the Americans left in 1948 the border area around the 38th parallel was under the command of Kim Sok-won, another ex-officer of the Imperial Army, and it was no surprise that after a series of South Korean incursions into the North, full-scale civil war broke out on 25 June 1950.

Inside the South itself – whose leaders felt insecure and conscious of the threat from what they called ‘the north wind’ – there was an orgy of state violence against anyone who might somehow be associated with the left or with communism.

The historian Hun Joon Kim found that at least 300,000 people were detained and executed or simply disappeared by the South Korean government in the first few months after conventional war began. My own work and that of John Merrill indicates that somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 people died as a result of political violence before June 1950, at the hands either of the South Korean government or the US occupation forces. 

The Bodo League massacre was a massacre of alleged communists and suspected sympathizers that occurred in the summer of 1950 during the Korean War. Estimates of the death toll vary. According to Prof. Kim Dong-Choon, Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, at least 100,000 people were executed on suspicion of supporting communism. Historians believe up to 200,000 were killed by the United Nations-allied South Korean military and South Korean Police. South Korean civilian organizations believe there might have been up to 1,200,000 victims. The massacres were blamed on the communists for decades.

In her recent book Korea’s Grievous War, which combines archival research, records of mass graves and interviews with relatives of the dead and escapees who fled to Osaka, Su-kyoung Hwang documents the mass killings in villages around the southern coast. 

Rape and murder of Korean women In short, the Republic of Korea was one of the bloodiest dictatorships of the early Cold War period; many of the perpetrators of the massacres had served the Japanese in their dirty work – and were then put back into power by the Americans.

Americans like to see themselves as mere bystanders in postwar Korean history. It’s always described in the passive voice: ‘Korea was divided in 1945,’ with no mention of the fact that McCloy and Rusk, two of the most influential men in postwar foreign policy, drew their line without consulting anyone. There were two military coups in the South while the US had operational control of the Korean army, in 1961 and 1980; the Americans stood idly by lest they be accused of interfering in Korean politics. South Korea’s stable democracy and vibrant economy from 1988 onwards seem to have overridden any need to acknowledge the previous forty years of history, during which the North could reasonably claim that its own autocracy was necessary to counter military rule in Seoul. It’s only in the present context that the North looks at best like a walking anachronism, at worst like a vicious tyranny. For 25 years now the world has been treated to scaremongering about North Korean nuclear weapons, but hardly anyone points out that it was the US that introduced nuclear weapons into the Korean peninsula, in 1958; hundreds were kept there until a worldwide pullback of tactical nukes occurred under George H.W. Bush. But every US administration since 1991 has challenged North Korea with frequent flights of nuclear-capable bombers in South Korean airspace, and any day of the week an Ohio-class submarine could demolish the North in a few hours. Today there are 28,000 US troops stationed in Korea, perpetuating an unwinnable stand-off with the nuclear-capable North. The occupation did indeed turn out to be one of ‘considerable duration’, but it’s also the result of a colossal strategic failure, now entering its eighth decade. It’s common for pundits to say that Washington just can’t take North Korea seriously, but North Korea has taken its measure more than once. And it doesn’t know how to respond.

To hear Trump and his national security team tell it, the current crisis has come about because North Korea is on the verge of developing an ICBM that can hit the American heartland. Most experts think that it will take four or five years to become operational – but really, what difference does it make? North Korea tested its first long-range rocket in 1998, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the DPRK’s founding. The first medium-range missile was tested in 1992: it flew several hundred miles down range and banged the target right on the nose. North Korea now has more sophisticated mobile medium-range missiles that use solid fuel, making them hard to locate and easy to fire. Some two hundred million people in Korea and Japan are within range of these missiles, not to mention hundreds of millions of Chinese, not to mention the only US Marine division permanently stationed abroad, in Okinawa. It isn’t clear that North Korea can actually fit a nuclear warhead to any of its missiles – but if it happened, and if it was fired in anger, the country would immediately be turned into what Colin Powell memorably called ‘a charcoal briquette’.

But then, as General Powell well knew, we had already turned North Korea into a charcoal briquette. The filmmaker Chris Marker visited the country in 1957, four years after US carpet-bombing ended, and wrote: ‘Extermination passed over this land. Who could count what burned with the houses? … When a country is split in two by an artificial border and irreconcilable propaganda is exercised on each side, it’s naive to ask where the war comes from: the border is the war.’ Having recognised the primary truth of that war, one still alien to the American telling of it (even though Americans drew the border), he remarked: ‘The idea that North Koreans generally have of Americans may be strange, but I must say, having lived in the USA around the end of the Korean War, that nothing can equal the stupidity and sadism of the combat imagery that went into circulation at the time. “The Reds burn, roast and toast.”

Since the very beginning, American policy has cycled through a menu of options to try and control the DPRK: sanctions, in place since 1950, with no evidence of positive results; non-recognition, in place since 1948, again with no positive results; regime change, attempted late in 1950 when US forces invaded the North, only to end up in a war with China; and direct talks, the only method that has ever worked, which produced an eight-year freeze – between 1994 and 2002 – on all the North’s plutonium facilities, and nearly succeeded in retiring their missiles. On 1 May, Donald Trump told Bloomberg News: ‘If it would be appropriate for me to meet with [Kim Jong-un], I would absolutely; I would be honoured to do it.’ There’s no telling whether this was serious, or just another Trump attempt to grab headlines. But whatever else he might be, he is unquestionably a maverick, the first president since 1945 not beholden to the Beltway. Maybe he can sit down with Mr Kim and save the planet.
