History is a funny thing. It can teach or it can kill. The trick is remembering and by doing so exposing the motivation lurking ever so darkly behind the facade of all the news that’s fit to print.
The lessons of the lies that took us into Iraq are forgotten while loved ones still grieve, soldiers still die and veterans still take their lives at a record pace.
The lessons of the lies that destabilized and bombed Libya, Yugoslavia, Syria and Nicaragua are forgotten while death squads still roam the streets and the tortured and mangled bodies pile up in the gutters and streams.
The lies that took us into war with Vietnam and Korea are forgotten while the tragic deaths of millions of Laotians and Cambodians and Vietnamese haunt our troubled vets every night in their dreams.
Choe Sang-Hun and David E. Sanger of the New York Times are spinning again and the blood of Koreans and our troops alike hang in the balance when the liberal mask comes off and the paper-tiger warmongers steel themselves to betray the truth in service of the ruling class.
When money and status is at stake, the “journalists” of the Times will toss anyone’s children into the fire but their own. No externality is too great for us to pay for their privilege. And all you have to do to pay it is forget history and swallow their lies.
Over at the “liberal” New York Times, they’re warmongering again. Not uncharted ground for the storied publication to be sure. They’ve been here before, many times. But today they’re offering up one lie after another about the recent history of North Korea surely with malice in their hearts and regime change on their minds. The only way to succeed in a corrupt and demonstrative world is to pluck out one’s own eyes and forge heroically ahead in the self-imposed darkness side by side with your Vichy colleagues .
And honestly, it seems almost like the Times is putting forward what would amount to a not-so-veiled threat of future violence and the promise that it will be unquestioningly blamed on North Korea .. again.
The article is called “Pynongyang Blusters and U.S. Worries About Quieter Risk” and from start to finish it’s loaded with deliberate lies… lies that are proven deceit, if you only know the history of the world we live in.
LIE 1 from the New York Times:
“This week, North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jung-un, ordered his underlings to prepare for a missile attack on the United States. He appeared at a command center in front of a wall map with the bold, unlikely title, “Plans to Attack the Mainland U.S.” Earlier in the month, his generals boasted of developing a “Korean-style” nuclear warhead that could be fitted atop a long-range missile” CHOE SANG-HUN and DAVID E. SANGER
Even the Times writers themselves have to later admit this is a complete lie;
“But the missile systems that figure in Mr. Kim’s blitz of threats and orders do not yet have the range to approach American shores. There is no evidence his nuclear weapons can be shrunk to fit atop a missile.”
“Then on Friday, photos released by the North’s state media, which also showed signs of digital manipulation, featured Mr. Kim huddling with his top generals during a midnight meeting to approve “plans to strike the mainland U.S.” CHOE SANG-HUN and DAVID E. SANGER
Articles from the New York Times set the precedent of propaganda. They are picked up and republished and heavily quoted across the globe. While understanding this, the “journalists” start off with the lie and then later expose it as such, knowing full well the qualifiers will be omitted by others, leaving only the lies.
Kim Jong-un did not sit in front of a group of military leaders with a map behind them titled “Plans to Attack the Mainland U.S.”. The writers of this piece know that full well in so much as they admit that the image was “manipulated” and they don’t have such weapons in the first place. Had this been a ploy by the North Koreans, they simply would have printed up such a map and taken pictures of their leader looking at it and going over it. They didn’t. So the manipulation came afterward, by someone else.
When you read between the lines, the identity of that someone else seems quite obvious:
““We’re all trying to put him on the couch,” said Jonathan D. Pollack, a North Korea expert at the Brookings Institution. “A year ago the U.S. and the Chinese saw at least the possibility that you could do business with him. But he has steadily reverted to form,”
“To North Korea experts in Washington and Seoul, there is something familiar in the country’s threats…”
“South Korean Defense Ministry. “We believe that by revealing it to the media and publicizing it to the world, North Korea is playing psychology.” CHOE SANG-HUN and DAVID E. SANGER
You see, when a leader like Kim Jung-il dies, someone who has had the audacity to successfully keep our hot-money speculators and globalist corporations out of their country when profits are to be made neoliberalizing it, an organic regime change is automatically on the table.
The new leader, if he chooses to follow in his predecessor’s footsteps, must be made to understand the weight of the crown swiftly while his moral compass is still in it’s developmental stage and he hasn’t acquired a history of successful resistance to our imperialist virus. Before his immune system gathers the necessary strength to fight off the infection of American free market “freedom”.
They thought they could “do business” with him at first but it turns out he doesn’t want American and British banks owning his country like they do ours and he doesn’t want to make his people debt-slaves to the IMF and World Bank, so of course, action must be taken to initiate the new king to the world of at all costs globalization.
LIE 2 and 3 from the New York Times:
Carefully hidden in the next two lies is a threat. And that threat is a warning from two lying writers to the educated and awake leaders of other countries, not just North Korea.
“In fact, it is the abilities that Mr. Kim is not showing off that have the Obama administration most worried. The cyberattacks on South Korea’s banking system and television broadcasters two weeks ago were surprisingly successful, as was the torpedo attack three years ago this week on the Cheonan, a naval corvette, that killed 46 South Korean sailors. The North has never acknowledged involvement in either — though the South believes it was responsible for both and so do American experts.” CHOE SANG-HUN and DAVID E. SANGER
The cyber attack two weeks ago was exposed as coming from inside South Korea itself after they blamed the Chinese and that story was spread around the world by “news” publications like the New York Times. It was a false flag event designed to demonize China and North Korea both.
The Washington Post said the attack actually came from an IP address of one of the same banks that was “attacked”
Imagine that: a new form of terrorism coming from a financial institution. What a shock, huh?
Still, “experts” say they blame North Korea. Certainly they would rather than say it was clearly a false flag. Journalists are supposed to see through baseless self-supporting claims like these but I suppose Choe Sang-Hun and David E. Sanger of the New York Times are some other form of journalist with other forms of motivations.
The Cheonan incident has been exposed as an accidental sinking caused by the vessel running aground and damaging one of it’s propellers and then not being able to avoid one of the mines set by our forces in a joint operations drill that was taking place.
The “experts” that Choe Sang-Hun and David E. Sanger of the New York Times cite as saying it was North Korea were only SOME of the “experts” brought in by Hillary Clinton when she rushed over there to take advantage of the tragedy to put blame on the North Koreans. The panel of investigators she put together were all from NATO aligned nations who she expected to follow her lead in framing up the North. They did with one exception, the Swedish team members, who would not sign off on the conclusion reached by the other members of Hillary’s neoliberal team. Swedish Members of JIG Appear to Reject Critical Aspects of the Official Report on the Sinking of the Cheonan
Investigations by the Russians and Chinese both came to a different conclusion that the frame-up team of Hillary Clinton. They said what I said and what MANY unofficial investigators said, it was a horrible accident and the Obama administration was determined to take advantage of it.
I myself proved the the Clinton investigation team used a diagram of a North Korean torpedo and claimed the “evidence” they “found” matched it but in fact it did not. My comparison was widely distributed across South Korea and eventually a Defense Ministry official went on South Korean television to try to debunk what I wrote. Two days later the Clinton team had to admit they made a mistake and used the wrong diagram, thus proving me right. My article was called “The Sinking of the Cheonan: We are being lied to”
In a blow to conclusions that are already under attack from leftwing politicians and activists, a team of experts that investigated the sinking of the Navy corvette Cheonan have admitted showing a diagram of the wrong North Korean torpedo when they presented their findings at a press conference on May 20.
When queried by journalists about discrepancies between the CHT-02D torpedo that attacked the Cheonan and the one depicted in the diagram, investigators said Tuesday that the pictured torpedo was of the model PT-97W and that the error was due to “a mix-up by a staff member while preparing for the presentation.” Chosun IIbo , June 30, 2010
The vast majority of South Koreans came to understand that they were being lied to about the sinking of one of their ships and the deaths of so many of their sailors. They did not like the Clinton propaganda machine using their personal and national tragedy to ratchet up the region for more war and death for the sake of greedy oligarchs and the sycophantic writers that serve them.
“… Many South Koreans are also skeptical. A survey by Seoul National University’s Institute for Peace and Unification Studies showed that only three in 10 trust the findings of the international inquiry.” JoongAng english
During this tenuous time, the JIG investigation is understood to have Photoshopped some evidence. And here we are talking about Photoshopped evidence of an attack plan.
The evidence is overwhelming that the Cheonan was an maritime accident which the West tried to use to demonize North Korea.

While reviewing the evidence, it began to appear to me that the most likely cause of the Cheonan’s sad fate was having had the misfortune to inadvertently sail into the path of a sea mine, and this feeling has only been strengthened by the reports of the Russian investigation team’s findings.” Gregory Elich
One of the first South Korean investigators assigned to look into the sinking of the Cheonan came to the conclusion that it was not sunk by a North Korean torpedo. He was persecuted for that and writing a letter to Hillary Clinton saying as much.
So there are the lies from Choe Sang-Hun and David E. Sanger of the New York Times. They are plain to see if you only look. And it seems that even these two writers know that they are presenting lies as truth to their readers when they use qualifiers like “some experts say’… yeah, some “experts” also say the Holocaust never happened and the earth is only 6,000 years old, but I don’t expect the Times to be citing them unquestioningly anytime soon.
Where then is the implicit threat?
“In fact, it is the abilities that Mr. Kim is not showing off that have the Obama administration most worried”
What they are saying is that there is going to be yet another false flag event on the horizon because clearly the two things they cited as events caused by North Korea weren’t and in fact one of them clearly comes from South Korea and the other, AT BEST was globalist opportunism and at worse, a false flag attack in the vein of the U.S.S. Liberty.
It’s a plethora of deceit and not so subtle threats from the liberal New York Times and a couple of hack “journalists” looking to ingratiate themselves in the vile system they so dutifully serve.
