RT – November 30, 2017: The US has been consciously provoking North Korea to take action, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov alleged after Pyongyang’s latest ballistic missile test. Moscow suspects the US wants a pretext to attack North Korea, he said.
Commenting on the latest developments, Lavrov said it seems that the US wants North Korea to resume the tests. “The latest US action seemed to be directed towards provoking Pyongyang into taking some rash action,” he told journalists on Thursday. The foreign minister called the missile test “an adventure,” but said that Washington has apparently been trying to goad North Korean leader Kim Jong-un into it.
“The Americans should start with explaining their intentions to us all. If they are really looking for an excuse to destroy North Korea, as the US envoy to the UN said at a Security Council meeting, let them spell it out clearly and let the US leadership confirm it. Then we will decide how to react,” Lavrov said.
The US has been demonstrating to North Korea its military might by staging a number of exercises in the region, some jointly with its allies South Korea and Japan. The escalation in tensions came as a disappointment for Moscow, which is advocating a ‘double freeze’ approach, in which North Korea halts missile and nuclear tests and the US stops its military maneuvers.
Sergey Lavrov said, “in September the American colleagues hinted that the next exercise may not come until spring , which may give North Korea a pause and make it refrain from any rash action… We were hopeful about the approach, but then they stage [an] unscheduled exercise in October, then in November, and now they have declared they will have [a] large-scale unscheduled exercise in December.”
The US policy of ramping up sanctions on North Korea to force them to roll back the missile and nuclear programs is not working, according to Lavrov. The potential for the pressure “has essentially exhausted itself” he said, adding that Washington should stop ignoring the calls from other countries, including Russia, which ask it to open direct negotiations with Pyongyang.

Little Rocket Man rocket fuel for the American economy
BATTLEFORWORLD – US media original air date November 29, 2017: During a speech in St. Charles, Mo., on November 29, President Trump referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “Little Rocket Man”…
Little Rocket Man rocket fuel for the American economy. He’s a sick puppy. (Editor: Is that euphemism for psychologically wounded by media and ready to be slaughtered? Think Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yugoslavia, etc. how the media psychologically prepared the public.)
Trump shutdown threat puts Washington, economy on uncertain course
WASHINGTONPOST – November 30, 2017: Government funding negotiations between President Trump and congressional leaders fell apart before the parties could even get in the same room on Tuesday, moving the federal government a step closer to a partial shutdown and setting up the growing economy for a potential shock in the final weeks of 2017.
Trump, in a Twitter post Tuesday, suggested disagreements with Democrats over immigration, crime and taxes could lead to a partial government shutdown beginning on Dec. 9. He was scheduled to meet several hours later with Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Link: Read Complete Article
The Reason Behind The United States Mischief With North Korea – America-China Financial Wars
BATTLEFORWORLD – April 29, 2017 (updated August 13, 2017): Why is the United States being mischievous in South East Asia? Well, the truth is that Donald Trump during his US presidential campaign was very vocal leading up to the election, saying that it was always about China, China, China, but after the election he realized that China did not swallow the bait in the way that he had anticipated. And so Trump has decided (or rather the Ruling Elites have decided for him in foreign policy) to move onto North Korea, Iran and Syria, starting war conflicts and bellicose fearmongering, to panic the holders of US Dollars back into the United States Treasury Bond Market, to keep the interest rate low, so that the financial Ruling Elites can continue their Ponzi scheme (Wall Street speculative bubble markets, etc.). This is the United States cleaver way of earning ghost money…into the treasury to continue with business as usual.
China and Russia are well aware of what is going on, and that the United States is a big paper tiger. And so China and Russia will at some future time bring their gold plan online (and this is the pending endgame) to neutralize the US mischief making of terrifying others into supporting their dollar Ponzi scheme at the barrel of a gun.
And so people, do not fall for the news media fearmongering campaign about Kim Jong-un of North Korea itching to start nuclear war. Because the United States is very scared to start World War III, and it knows that if it does, a catastrophic earthshaking moment awaits.
Max Keiser (10:58mins into the video): The question is, with all that issuance, how come that there is not more of inflation (in the United States)? And the answer is that, when the United States create their trillions of dollars worth of debt, they also LINK IT TO ACTS OF FOREIGN POLICY AGGRESSION, to scare people out of other economies into the U.S. Dollar Security, like the U.S. Treasury Bond. This is why the U.S. invaded Iraq, (wanting) to bomb North Korea perhaps; this is why the U.S. is hostile toward Iran… They (the U.S.) want to get all these dollars that are overseas (to) PANIC into coming into dollars, coming back into the U.S., to keep the U.S. Treasury Rates low. And with low interest rates you can issue more debt, more debt, more debt, etc.
And here’s an article from the New York Times: The Market Is Betting Trump Will Bring Higher Inflation and Interest Rates – “And on Wednesday, bond markets sent one signal loud and clear: The Trump years are likely to feature higher inflation and higher interest rates than have prevailed in recent years.” That is because during his election campaign he was backing out of foreign policy nation building war schemes, and that meant lots of monies would have dried up. President Obama continued the sham economic war policy and Hillary Clinton knew that she also would have to if elected; and what Trump was saying during the election campaign was not realistic with how the financial markets operate. And if Trump was to keep his promise about abandoning foreign wars and put America first (the people’s America), then he was not acting presidential. And that’s the reason why the corporate media gave him such a difficult time and will continue to do so if he decides not to follow the war path – hiding the collapsing US economy from the people.
And much of the financial markets in the West have become usurious into the realm of speculation, thief, etc. And economists who are aware knows that President Trump is not properly informed in this area and will have to be quickly updated that different rules (like fearmongering, war, hype, speculation, etc.) now drive major areas of the financial market.
