JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: U.S. NAVAL FORCES IN EXERCISES OFF EASTERN CHINA   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY FRANK CHING IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Someone who thought a little more deeply than Frank Ching would know that the United States has absolutely no business in these waters and that over time its presence can only be dangerous.

Much like its continued presence in Korea, this is nothing more than an expression of global imperialism and, in a very real sense, an insult to the peoples of this part of the world who are perfectly capable of settling their own international affairs.

The United States, time and time again, has pushed the limits there in Cold War fashion.

Recall the American spy plane under the great idiot Bush that was brought down in China.

The previous new government of Japan was elected wanting to remove America’s ugly presence in Okinawa – ugly because it includes nuclear weapons aboard ship – but American pressure brought the new leader down.

And readers should know that there is no definitive proof that that South Korean ship was sunk by the North Koreans. It may have been nothing but an accident aboard the ship, afterwards used to stoke up feelings a la “Remember the Maine!”

Indeed, many of North Korea’s extreme behaviors are responses to American provocations never admitted.
