To paraphrase that Bob Dylan song, Something is happening here and you don’t know what it is…Do you, Uncle Sam?
Asia is following its own path. And before America can catch up, it has to understand what’s going on. That’s going to be tough for a superpower laser focused on denying its decline and obsessed with sustaining sixty years of hegemonic glory.
US-Korean peace talks creep along while that Asia for the Asians (and Eurasians) thing gets fast-tracked.
The Pentagon is probably watching with some interest and perhaps concern as its wayward ally, the Republic of Korea, reaches out to Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin while bestie friend in East Asia, Japan’s Shinzo Abe wanders off to talk with Russia…and Iran.
It’s not just Asia love driving Shinzo Abe. There’s also fear. There’s a hundred billion dollar reason why Shinzo Abe fears peace with North Korea. And you’ll only learn about it at China Watch.

General MacArthur’s Conspiracy to Start a War with China! New Documentary Release & Interview! For purchase at Newsbud Store or for Purchase or View via Amazon or Vimeo
The Korean War was a desperate and dubious battle in which the US was ready to try anything and everything to overcome its strategic and tactical disadvantages. Biological weapons, nuclear weapons…and Douglas MacArthur’s plans for a strategic breakout via escalation of the Korean conflict to a regional war. Everything was on the table.
Douglas MacArthur made the first US attempt to parlay a Korean crisis into an existential confrontation with the People’s Republic of China. With the US milsec establishment, his ideas are more popular—and dangerous—than ever. My documentary uses first hand testimony and declassified archives to finally reveal the truth behind this long-suppressed event.
