Last week the reports quoting ”anonymous senior officials” couldn’t have been more wrong; China did not end up endorsing the Hilary Clinton pro-war talking point that North Korea was responsible for sinking the Cheonan. Perhaps we should stop quoting the lies of our anonymous “senior officials” before we let them start another war for profit.
Last week, senior U.S. officials said after holding talks in Beijing that China is likely to gradually endorse the view that North Korea should be held accountable. They spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the discussions. Fox News May 30 2010
China made it very clear that they would not support any nation who attacked and sank the PCC-772 Cheonan on March 26, killing 46 ROKS sailors. Today it is being reported that after the weekend trilateral talks with Japan and South Korea, China is all-but rejecting the findings of the American led investigation that faulted North Korea for the attack based on what has been readily proved to be rather flimsy and probably fraudulent evidence.
Russia has also made it clear that they do not support those findings. Neither country, China or Russia, seems to be willing to support submitting a resolution for sanctions to the United Nations blaming North Korea for the sinking of the Cheonan and at least in one case they point out that doing that before the Security Council would “bring more questions (about the incident) than answers”. That says a lot.
One article goes so far as to suggest even the South Korean president, President Lee, may be taking a different stance on this issue, at least while he is with the Chinese and the Japanese delegations.
China’s premier said Sunday that tensions over the sinking of a South Korean warship urgently need to be diffused, but did not join other key nations in blaming longtime ally North Korea and gave no indication he would support U.N. sanctions. MSNBC May 30th 2010
President Lee said South Korea will take appropriate steps to address the naval tragedy in close partnership with China and Japan. However, he stopped short of blaming North Korea. The Korea Times May 30 2010
China’s premier said Sunday that avoiding conflict between the Koreas over the sinking of a warship is most urgent, but did not express support for a bid by South Korea and Japan to condemn North Korea at the United Nations for allegedly carrying out the attack. Fox News May 30 2010
“Even if this issue is introduced for a UN Security Council decision, it [the council] will be reserved,” another expert on Korea, Georgy Toloraya, said, adding that the issue would not involve international sanctions. “Introducing this issue to the UN Security Council for discussion will bring about more questions than answers,” Leshakov added.

Though the situation is certainly far from being defused, with the looming threat of U.N. sanctions apparently now “off the table” due to the two Security Council veto holding nations rejecting Hilary Clinton’s “overwhelming” evidence, perhaps the U.S. instigated tensions on the Korean peninsula can start to subside. Hopefully we will see North and South Korea begin a speedy stand-down from their war posture before a silly incident provides War-Monger Clinton another opportunity to beat her familiar drums.
This is very good news for people all over the world, not just in Korea. Though we are seeing some smattering of news reports on this issue here in the U.S., what we aren’t seeing, what we should be seeing, is an internal investigation into how the Secretary of State of the United States of America came away from her own observations of the “investigation” with such a convoluted conclusion that is being widely rejected world-wide.
What we should see is a real investigation into the sinking of the PCC-772 Cheonan in order to determine who was really responsible for the taking of 46 South Korean lives.
What we should see happen in this country is an investigation into Hilary Clinton’s involvement in the South Korean investigation and all of her subsequent war-mongering that has taken place afterwards.
How can any U.S. citizen feel comfortable knowing that such a loose cannon is running around the world, representing our nation, looking to provoke open war-fare with such little regard for human life and the truth in general in our name?
That is what should happen in the United States, but I am afraid it won’t. The Clintons own the Democratic Party and they rule it with a corrupt iron fist of biblical proportions.
As an American with a conscience, all I can say to the people of South and North Korea is the same thing I say to the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Honduras, Columbia, Mexico, Palestine, and Haiti… I’m sorry.
