誰が戦争を乞う?

Who Is ‘Begging for War’?
TEHRAN (FNA)- US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley claims North Korea’s tests of increasingly sophisticated nuclear weapons and missiles amounts to “begging for war.”

In response, North Korea has said if nuclear weapons are a threat to humanity then how come the United States and other nuclear weapons states have built so many, brandishing weapon after weapon after weapon for the past 70 years?

Indeed, it doesn’t take a strategic mind to realise who is begging for war and who is insisting on peace. The War Party in Washington has been showing it over and over again in places like Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan. It is beyond pitiful, but that is what the Trump White House is. They will not change, even when it comes to committing themselves to international peace talks, much less international deals. You wouldn’t be hard pressed to think of one:

1- Recent US behaviour in the Middle East tends to reinforce questions over whether the United States is really a factor for stability. One recent example: the Trump administration has announced a ‘surge’ of troops in Afghanistan and Syria, only simultaneously to announce its intention to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

2- The Trump administration has announced the United States’ return to Asia, and some old allies in the region welcomed renewed attention from Washington. But many nations suspect the United States’ return really means engaging in a form of containment of China. Some even say that since the Taiwan Strait has become calmer, the US is turning to the South China Sea as a new pressure point to keep China in check.

3- The same is true about the Korean Peninsula. Here the nuclear detonations map must now be extended to include the H-Bomb detonation in the DPRK. It is hard to believe the Trump administration could not clearly see that the mock invasions of the DPRK called Team Spirit didn’t single-handedly agitate the tensions on the Korean Peninsula, until you consider that the Military Junta in Washington DC is also going to sell billions of dollars more to South Korea in weapons now that things are getting hot.

4- The Trump administration has just blamed Pakistan for its failure in the longest war on Afghanistan. Expect President Trump soon to be waging a new wave of disturbing assassination campaign in Pakistan that eclipses all that came before it in scale and brutality.

5- The Trump administration has overseen a projected fivefold increase in drone strikes in Yemen while also expanding ground operations to support the Saudi-led war against the poorest country in the Arab world. British bases help US drones find their targets, while British intelligence officers draw up kill lists of targets for drones to strike. Thousands of civilians have been killed this year and many more innocent people stand to lose their lives if this criminal campaign continues unchecked by the United Nations.

6- The US is hardly alone in waging its vicious and unaccountable war on Syria. Saudi Arabia and several other Persian Gulf Arab states are a compliant co-pilot in the regime-change program. The program is being undertaken with the full cooperation of ISIL and Al-Qaeda terror proxy forces.

7- Ambassador Haley claims Iran has violated the spirit of the 2015 nuclear accord and that President Trump is likely not to certify Iran’s compliance with it next time. There is no legitimate reason for such a step, but if Trump – who must certify compliance every three months – takes it, he would almost certainly set in motion another nuclear crisis side by side with the one with North Korea. Two basic facts are before us: first, that the nuclear accord is very much in the interest of all parties, the US in particular; and second, that the IAEA confirms Iran is not in violation of the agreement. In fact, it is the US which has on several occasions violated the deal by imposing new sanctions on Iran.

All this and more should have made it clear by now who is begging for war and who is insisting on peace: The Trump administration is simply looking for a pretext to launch a new war somewhere and scrap the Iran nuclear accord come what may. And there may well be enough votes in the Senate to bring those about if Trump chooses to make a clean break.

In the prevailing circumstances, it’s a waste of time to argue that rather than keep begging for an imminent war with a sovereign nation – a path already shown to be totally unproductive with North Korea – the US ought to be thinking about how to improve relations with the international civil society.

戦争が始まれば敵味方、国民同士では憎しみを煽られやがて感覚が麻痺し憎き敵国に対しては極悪非道の残虐行為も躊躇わなくなりますが先の大戦を見れば枢軸国、連合国の指導者・支配者はみんなグルで民族同士憎しみを駆り立て戦争ビジネスを行い、侵略占領した国からは金銀宝石を奪い、形だけのとある永世中立国に資産を預けますね。
現在の世界中での戦争を見てもそうなのですから予定されているであろうWW3でもそのようなスタイルになるはずですね。愚の骨頂です。
未だに先の大戦において日本人は誰のせいで戦争が起きたのか戦争の目的は何なのかわかってない人が多過ぎます。また、触れてはいけないタブーとされる物が何故か儲けられているので原因がわかっても声高に発言出来ないでしょう。先の大戦の総括が出来ていないのだから残念ながらまた日本人は戦争に再び巻き込まれます。
果たして、勝って新国際連合の悲願の常任理事国に日本はなれるでしょうか。

日本人のルーツ、歴史、隠された出来事があるので関ヶ原の合戦での東日本、西日本の対立、古くは征夷大将軍や源氏、平氏の対立、明治維新、東京裁判でなぜA級戦犯に海軍がいないのか、731部隊はなぜ裁かれず戦後日本の重要ポストに就いたのか。
私はこういったことに疑問を持ち独自に調べて考えていました。恐らく現在の日本がなぜこんな国になったのか、関係があると思っています。
映画監督、伊丹十三氏の父親万作氏は「戦争責任者の問題」という文章で騙されて知らず知らずに協力した国民が悪い、と発言しています。的を射た発言だと思います。
2011年以降指導者や目立っている人物に隣国を過度に敵視する人間が多いですね。賛同する人間も残念ながら多いです。日本の経済力も弱まっていますね。戦争の下地は充分整って来ています。加えて放射能で被曝した人間の「処分」にも戦争を有効活用しようとしている節があるのがこれまでと違う点ですね。

私は、第二次世界大戦はヒットラーの政治目的の戦争だと思います。彼の目的は、第二次世界大戦に勝利して世界の旧支配体制を破壊し、超大国ドイツ帝国とドイツ人による新しい世界支配体制を構築する事でした。しかしドイツ帝国の工業力(国力)が弱く、失敗しました。成金トランプ大統領は、GDPが米国の1000分の1で核ミサイル持つて石器時代のような生活をしている土人の北朝鮮に、かかわるのをやめたと思います。なんの利益もないですよ。

初めまして西さん。以前から西さんのコメントが大変参考になると思って拝見しておりました。
北朝鮮にアメリカが手を出さないなら暫くアジアは形だけは平和でしょうか。
無意味極まりない戦争は避けられるならありがたいですがそうなるとまたどこか別の地域でアメリカの戦争ビジネスが始まると思うので暗澹たる気分になります。
