South Korean President Moon has said that S. Korea will veto a preemptive US strike on N. Korea:
http://news.antiwar.com/2017/08/15/sout ... rth-korea/

A question is whether a S. Korean veto would prevail

Recall that Dubya asked the UN for permission to attack Iraq and when it wasn't granted he unleashed Shock and Awe, anyway.

The link below contains fake news in he first paragraph:
https://news.antiwar.com/2018/05/22/aid ... adrs-bloc/

The US did in fact have something to do with Mookie al-Sadr.

First, General Petraeus tried to kill him by bombing his alleged whereabouts a couple of times, just as all emerging resistance leaders in the Mid-East are killed by helicopter or drone-fired rockets, and then Petraeus invited him in for a friendly chat, which Mookie refused.

So, it seems a little late to try to make nice with him.

I get the Korean peninsula confused with the Crimean peninsula, but at least I know that they are part of the Alaskan peninsula bordering the US territories of Iran, Yukon, and Syria and that Sarah Palin can see them from her kitchen window.

The North and South part of Korea have suspended war games\, but I don't know if the East and West have.

Again, your idiocy and general ignorance is on display.

1) The USA does not have anyone in Idlib to do this.
2) The Russian claim was that the rebel White Helmets carried out the previous chlorine /sarin attack to force NATO to intervene, which the UK, France and USA did, through cruise missiles.
3) The White Helmets left Syria, for Jordan, through Israel in July 2018.


http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-07-24/s ... n/10028326

I have no opinion if the Syrian government or rebel white helmets were responsible for the chlorine or sarin attacks or if rebel stock piles were inadvertently hit by Russian missiles. I do know that poison gas does not work in rapid movement warfare and Syria is expecting to rapidly take Idlib.

Matt, perhaps you aren't familiar with the term "false flag."

This dialogue from The Princess Bride is self-explanatory:

Inigo: What is that you're ripping?
Vizzini: It's fabric from the uniform of an Army officer of Guilder.
Fezzik: Who's Guilder?
Vizzini: The country across the sea. The sworn enemy of Florin. [slaps the horse's rump] Go! Once the horse reaches the castle, the fabric will make the Prince suspect the Guilderians have abducted his love. When he finds her body dead on the Guilder frontier, his suspicions will be totally confirmed.
Fezzik: You never said anything about killing anyone.
Vizzini: I've hired you to help me start a war. It's a prestigious line of work with a long and glorious tradition.

I am very familiar with the activity known as a false flag. It is idiotic, Trump supporters, like youself who don't know what it means.

The anti-Syrian government factions in Idlib are about to be assaulted by the entire re-grouped and refitted Syrian army in a mobile assault. As Israel has closed the borders, after letting their Israeli allied factions escape, anyone remaining in Idlib will be at the mercy of the Syrian Army. This means, unlike Ghouta, and as there will be a fluid front, any use of sarin or chlorine will harm both the anti-government factions and the Syrian army.

I'd ask you to set out your "false flag" scenario, but you don't know where Idlib or Syria is and you can't actually name one of the factions in the Idlib pocket. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Let's be fair, here. He's trying to say that the US often engages in false flag operations.

I'm sure it does and I don't support it.

But I don't think the answer is to turn America into Somalia, which is literally what libertarians want.

The things government does are sometimes bad, therefore have private security companies who work for specific people instead of police whose job is at least to serve all. That'll work wonders.

Every country uses False Flags. However the USA isn't in Idlib in Syria.

The irony is that Tom Palven is claiming the USA faked the chlorine and Sarin attacks, in Syria which is Tom Palven giving a false flag to an activity by Syrian anti-government forces.

Tom Palven is doing exactly what he says is wrong to do........because he is a total idiot.

You knowingly lied and claimed that the USA would create a false flag chlorine attack in Idlib, according to the Russians. The Russians never said that, The Russians said it was the Syrian White helmets. Additionally, there are no Americans in Idlib. You lied on purpose to spread your false propaganda.

I've stated over and over that I accept the Wikipedia definition of Deep State:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_within_a_state

I don't have proof that the US intelligence community steering committee constitutes a deep state, but I have provided lots of evidence over and over, which you ignore and then claim I never answer your question. A couple of pieces of evidence are:

1. Barack Obama was in favor of the Arab Spring democratization, but even as Commander-in-Chief he had no control over US CENTCOM overthrowing the newly elected democratic parliament in Egypt and funding its military dictator before, during, and after the coup.

2. Trump said that he had no control over the CIA refusing to hand over the remaining thousands of secret documents relating to the Kennedy murder. (Remember that I predicted that the CIA would never hand over those documents despite being mandated to do so by law?)

3. Your heroes Clapper and Brennan would still be lying their asses off before Congress if they hadn't been outed by people like Snowden, Manning, Greenwald, and Assange.
