Trump Attack On North Korea & Decline of American Empire

While the world commemorated the 72nd anniversary of the racist, unnecessary atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 by the United States, the raving lunatic, totally unfit to be president, Trump threatened annihilation of North Korea with the “fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
While the world commemorated the 72nd anniversary of the racist, unnecessary atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 by the United States, the raving lunatic, totally unfit to be president, Trump threatened annihilation of North Korea with the “fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

This attack on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is nothing new; the United States murdered 4-5 million Koreans and 1 million Chinese in 1950-1953 in its war of anti-Communism, clearly with a planned attempt to destroy China, which had a socialist revolution in 1949.

“Every US President Makes Unilateral Nuclear Threats. It's an American Tradition: A Black Agenda Radio Commentary” by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon, https://www.blackagendareport.com/every-us-president-makes-unilateral-nuclear-threats-its-american-tradition


As Richard Becker states in his August 9, 2017 article, “Trump Threatens The Nuclear Annihilation Of North Korea, But DPRK Will Not Blink” at https://www.liberationnews.org/trump-threatens-the-nuclear-annihilation-of-north-korea-but-dprk-will-not-blink/,
Trump speaks for a section of the ruling capitalist class.

The attacks on North Korea by Trump were preceded by sanctions, an act of war, against North Korea, Russia and Iran on July 27, 2017 at 6:02 pm Eastern Time, 98 to 2, with Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders voting no. Sanders' opposition was not due to the sanctions on Russia but the sanctions on Iran. See http://thehill.com/policy/international/russia/344221-senate-sends-russia-sanctions-bill-to-trumps-desk

The House vote on HR 3364, Roll Call 413, may be seen at

and the text of the bill may be read at:

The House vote was 419 to 3, with 3 Republicans voting no. San Francisco’s Congressperson Democrat Nancy Pelosi voted for sanctions against North Korea, Russia and Iran.

The outcry against the latest ravings of this illegal, unfit president were protested by an August 10, 2017 letter to Secretary of State Tillerson, signed by over 60 Congresspeople. See the press release on Rep. John Conyers’ website at https://conyers.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/letter-members-congress-reject-trump-statements-north-korea and the letter linked to this press release at https://conyers.house.gov/sites/conyers.house.gov/files/documents/Members%20of%20Congress%20letter%20to%20Tillerson%20081017_0.pdf
San Francisco’s Rep. Nancy Pelosi did not sign this letter.

One of the many achievements of North Korea is socialized medicine. In North Korea, it is free. South Korea also has socialized medicine. The countries that have some form of socialized medicine, including but not limited to Medicare for All, are:
All of Europe, Israel, Cuba, Canada, Venezuela, Chile, Costa Rica, China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand.

The one major industrialized country that does not have socialized medicine is the USA, accounting for this country having the highest infant mortality and lowest life expectancy in the industrialized world. There is an effort to pass an Improved and Expanded Medicare for All bill, HR 676, originally sponsored by Rep. John Conyers, which is at https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/676/text There are now 116 co-sponsors; Rep. Nancy Pelosi is not a co-sponsor of HR 676.

Like most Americans, Trump has no idea as to the geography of North Korea, a country of 25 million people bordering China to the north, with a small northeast border with Russia near Vladivostok, and to the South, at the 38th parallel north of the Equator, is South Korea. San Francisco is also at the 38th parallel north of the Equator, on the other side of the Pacific Ocean. For more on the proximity of North Korea to South Korea, and the impact of American nuclear weapons on both, see:

Pres. Trump cannot remember what he said in the previous hour and he claims to have made phone calls that never occurred. He is now bringing the world to the brink of a nuclear holocaust, which no one survives, with his ravings. Yet the Congress, filled with Democrat-Republicans, refuses to impeach him and refuses to invoke the 25th Amendment. Trump is clearly a very unstable, utterly reactionary, sick old man who is unfit to hold any office, and that was obvious during the campaign. It is now life threatening to all of us.

North Korea needs to be told that the US war machine is destroying this country and it should hold its fire since the raving lunatic Trump has to be ignored for now, and removed from office soon. The proof that the US war machine, supported by the Democrat-Republican Parties, is destroying this country is:
1. A totally unfit person is sitting in the president’s office illegally installed by a desperate ruling class that only sees war as a solution,
2. While this country spends a trillion dollars a year on war, we have 50% poverty and 80% living from paycheck to paycheck, including the 50% in poverty, and it is getting worse daily, with all commercial areas filled with beggars and homeless people.

You can do your part to change the course of this country by supporting the only 2 pro-peace, pro-labor, pro-environment parties on the California ballot, Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party. You can register online for either one of these 2 parties at https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US
