BATTLEFORWORLD – December 22, 2017: The plan is now crystal clear and obvious, and so by trickery and deception, using lawyer’s tongue, The United States UN envoy Nikki Haley, by orders from the elite establishment, plans to exhaust the sanctions option on North Korea into the phase of final military attack on the country. The timeline given is 24 months – ending in the year December 2019. This will be a unilateral decision by the United States Establishment, giving the orders – if they are brave enough, because obstacles are in the way.

New UNSC resolution slashes oil & petroleum supplies to N. Korea over missile launch
RT – December 22, 2017: The UN Security Council has unanimously imposed a new round of sanctions on North Korea following its latest ballistic missile test launch. The resolution seeks to ban nearly 90 percent of refined oil product exports to Pyongyang.
The new resolution was drafted by the US in response to the most resent ballistic missile test conducted by Pyongyang on November 29. The final document did not incorporate the harsher restrictions sought by the US, which included a total ban on exporting oil products to North Korea, as well as freezing all the international assets of the country’s leadership.
North Korea said it was a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile, the Hwasong 15, which can hit all of the US mainland. The US military dismissed the claim, with Defense Secretary James Mattis stating, “It has not yet shown to be a capable threat against us right now.”
“It (the resolution) sends the unambiguous message to Pyongyang that further defiance will invite further punishments and isolation,” Nikki Haley, the US envoy to the United Nations, said following the vote. Link: Read Complete Article
US Using Pyongyang Issue as Pretext to Continue Militarizing Asia-Pacific – SC
SPUTNIKNEWS – December 26, 2017: The Russian Security Council secretary has explained why Washington strives to deploy global missile defense systems in the Asia-Pacific.
“It’s no secret to anybody that the DPRK nuclear missile problem is, in fact, being used as a pretext for continuing the militarization of the Asia-Pacific region in the interests of containing Russia and China,” Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said in an interview with “Argumenty i Fakty” (Arguments and Facts) newspaper.
According to him, Washington “consistently realizes its plans to deploy elements of its global missile defense system in the countries of the region.”
Patrushev went on by saying that in case of war on the Korean peninsula, the United States would have to respect the lives of US citizens living in South Korea.
“As history shows, the US is not accustomed to respecting the lives of citizens of other states to achieve its goals. However, Washington will certainly take into account the fact that there are 250,000 Americans living in South Korea,” Patrushev said, adding that in case of large-scale military operations on the Korean peninsula, their lives will be under threat.
“And such losses in the language of the military of all countries of the world are deemed unacceptable. The positions of missile systems with operational and tactical missiles, barrel artillery and missile systems with the volley fire of North Korea are at a distance of some 50 kilometers from Seoul,” he stated.

MATTIS: ‘Storm clouds gathering’ over Korean Peninsula
APNEWS – December 22, 2017: “Storm clouds are gathering” over the Korean Peninsula, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis declared Friday. And as diplomats try to resolve the nuclear standoff, he told soldiers that the U.S. military must do its part by being ready for war.
Without forecasting a conflict, Mattis emphasized that diplomacy stands the best chance of preventing a war if America’s words are backed up by strong and prepared armed forces.
“My fine young soldiers, the only way our diplomats can speak with authority and be believed is if you’re ready to go,” Mattis told several dozen soldiers and airmen at the 82nd Airborne Division’s Hall of Heroes, his last stop on a two-day pre-holiday tour of bases to greet troops.
Mattis’ comments came as the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved tough new sanctions against North Korea, compelling nations to sharply reduce their sales of oil to the reclusive country and send home all North Korean expatriate workers within two years. Such workers are seen as a key source of revenue for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s cash-strapped government. Link: Read Complete Article
To the Brink: New UN Sanctions Seen as Ineffective to Halt DPRK Nuke Development
SPUTNIKNEWS – December 23, 2017: As Pyongyang digs in its heels and Washington continues its threats, global experts suggest that new UN sanctions against North Korea will not have the desired effect, only increasing the possibility of nuclear conflict in the region.
Following Friday’s unanimous United Nations Security Council (UNSC) vote to place additional sanctions on the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (DPRK), global security experts have noted that previous actions have not been successful, as Pyongyang nuclear weapon and ballistic missile development continues unabated.
Korean expert Zhao Tong with the Tsinghua Carnegie Centre in Beijing suggested that any new sanctions only serve to increase the rhetoric of war in the region.
“The US has said that it won’t acknowledge Pyongyang as a nuclear power,” he pointed out, adding, “if the negotiations and sanctions fail to work and neither side backs down, war is inevitable.” Link: Read Complete Article
