Editor’s note: this article is perfectly framed by listening to Jeff’s interview with guest Godfree Roberts, conducted earlier this week: http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/04/09/xi-v-trump-the-real-story-of-their-florida-meeting-with-godfree-roberts-china-rising-radio-sinoland-170409/

Then check out the follow-up to this article, for a full historical understanding of the situation which is playing out in Korea: http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/04/15/the-xi-trump-kim-waltz-is-twirling-across-the-historical-geopolitical-dance-floor-china-rising-radio-sinoland-170415/

 

I was very disappointed that China only abstained in yesterday’s United Nations Security Council resolution to persecute Syria and its president, Bashar Assad, for the likely false flag perpetrated by the West’s proxy ISIS army http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1042215.shtml. There were surely discussions between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his good friend and Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, before the vote, with Russia vetoing it.

I think several factors are at work here. Chinese President Xi just got back from his “Citrus Summit” with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, Florida http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/04/09/xi-v-trump-the-real-story-of-their-florida-meeting-with-godfree-roberts-china-rising-radio-sinoland-170409/ . There were surely some quid pro quos promised. Syria is in Russia’s home court. Korea is China’s. Vetoing with Russia may have violated an agreed quid pro quo. Korea is hot right now, with the North continuing to test their missiles and the US installing THAAD.

Also, for Russia, the demonization, hysteria, propaganda, Orwellian media lies and outright hatred of all things Slav cannot get any worse. Thus, I think the Russians told the Chinese that it was not necessary to burn a diplo-chip, when the West is so fanatically and rabidly insane anyway.

Bolivia also joined Russia in the no vote and China, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan abstained. That is essentially five of the 15 Security Council members not voting with the West. Just six weeks ago, China joined Russia to veto another Western kangaroo court UNSC resolution, demanding that Assad step down as well as against sanctions, on February 28 https://www.yahoo.com/news/russia-pledges-veto-un-sanctions-resolution-syria-050054387.html. These two brothers in arms also vetoed a third Western Monty Python resolution in December https://www.rt.com/news/369274-russia-china-unsc-aleppo-resolution/. They have been jointly vetoing Western propaganda resolutions going back to the beginning of the Western instigated civil war in Syria https://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/feb/04/assad-obama-resign-un-resolution.

So, the Chinese’s abstention to this week’s Syrian vote has to be put into proper, historical perspective.

And just today, no joke, Trump is threatening to attack North Korea https://www.rt.com/news/384554-us-armada-china-korea-menace/. Xi is continuing to play it lowkey http://en.people.cn/n3/2017/0413/c90000-9202075.html. But with Trump changing his words and deeds like the wind, who knows? Yesterday’s quid pro quos may be old promises after just one week, which is very un-Chinese, indeed. Let’s also hope that Trump get the story straight about the Chinese supposedly amassing troops on the North’s border, which is the kind of psyops propaganda that the CIA excels in http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1042177.shtml. The situation on the Korean peninsula has gone from dull to exceedingly dangerous in a hurry. Xi cannot afford to be distracted by Syria right now, which is Russia’s core interest, nor give Trump any pretext to bomb North Korea.

Here is my hopeful scenario. Like the bogus charade US bombing of the Syrian airbase this week, that was set up to make Trump look imperial and in charge http://thesaker.is/a-multi-level-analysis-of-the-us-cruise-missile-attack-on-syria-and-its-consequences/ & http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/04/12/trump-xi-syria-and-gold-guest-jeff-j-brown-on-rory-halls-the-daily-coin-170413/, the same Kabuki theater could be playing out in a ménage-à-trois with Trump, Xi and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un following a carefully scripted choreography. North Korea has just announced to the West to “expect something big” https://www.longroom.com/discussion/427702/foreign-journos-in-north-korea-told-to-expect-something-big-as-china-issues-warning-to-pyongyang. Japan is doing its bit part as Colin Powell at the UN, holding up a vial of talcum powder, claiming it was a nerve agent, which ushered in America’s failed invasion and occupation of Iraq, except now it is Prime Minister Shinzo Abe barking about sarin gas tipped Kim missiles http://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-usa-japan-idUSKBN17F0HJ. You can’t make this stuff up. Trump just announced that he is now backpedaling on one of his big campaign promises, to declare China a currency manipulator http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1042239.shtml. There one half of a quid pro quo.

We could have a repeat of the US bombed Syrian airfield stunt, where North Korea has plenty of time to vacate a military target, Trump lobs some missiles into the Potemkin targets, becoming a national hero for standing up to those menacing red gooks north of the 38th parallel. Kim pounds the drums of war, scaring the bejeezus out of the whole region, while bolstering his standing with his citizens. China plays the white hat and rides to the diplomatic rescue, to calm everything down and prevent a war. America can convert more golf courses in South Korea into military bases, and occupy even more land. All three countries get to satisfy their hawks by signing rafts of military arms contracts.

All this, to make Trump look like a global Caesar, saving the “free world” from crazy commies. As Xi would say, it’s win-win-win.

Don’t laugh. This is not as farfetched as it seems. False flags are how humanity has been manipulated and controlled for thousands of years. But as in the past, it is fraught with danger, since the slightest deviation from the script could see it all unwind into a serious conflagration. If true, I have full confidence in China’s end of the bargain and its control over North Korea http://www.greanvillepost.com/2017/03/19/china-north-korea-and-the-upcoming-international-sanctions-china-rising/. That makes two out of the three dancers pirouetting with safe hands. The US? That’s the crazy wildcard nut job partner we should all be worried about. Unlike Xi and Kim, Trump is not in control of his military.

Then again, maybe Trump is enthralled with all his new killer military toys and drunk with the power of the American presidency. We will find out one way or the other, sooner than later. Time to button up yer bungholes for an anus-clenching false flag or geopolitical (mis-) adventure. Ye-haw! Ride ‘em cowboys!
