A nuclear test just conducted by North Korea is blowing up in the media, with the war profiteers and their media in full swing fear-mongering about the event.
CNN live updates are being offered, the stock value of Raytheon and Lockheed Martin (“defense” contractors) are probably rising right now, and everything is working out perfectly for the US government.
North Korea recently claimed to successfully test a hydrogen bomb for its intercontinental ballistic missile. This is their sixth ever nuclear test, and the first since Trump took office.
According to mainstream media, it is the most powerful weapon the country has ever tested.
According to CNN:
President Donald Trump said North Korea’s actions were “hostile and dangerous.” South Korea said it will seek to “completely isolate” North Korea, while China urged Pyongyang to stop taking wrong actions.” Russia said the test “deserves the strongest condemnation.
In a hydrogen (thermonuclear) bomb, “heavy” isotopes of hydrogen are forced together to release a much bigger impact — hundreds or even thousands of times more powerful than the A-bombs dropped by the US.
There is no possible way to see the North Korea issue in its correct context without understanding the Korean War.
In the Korean War (1950- 1953) right after World War 2 when the US and allies were flexing their hardest trying to maintain supremacy over the Soviet Union and opposing interests, they set out to maintain their power in Asia, starting with the Korean War and ending (although there is never an end) with the Vietnam War.
In the Korean War the US massacred civilians, killing an estimated 20% of the population of North Korea.
Why do you think Kim Jong-Un and his predecessors had so much success convincing their people that the US government is evil? It’s because they massacred about 20% of their entire population not very many decades ago. The US government’s indiscriminate slaughter of North Korean civilians in the Korean War is the real origin of this conflict, yet almost nobody is aware of this.
U.S. planes dropped 635,000 tons of bombs, and 32,557 pounds of vicious napalm on the Korean peninsula in the 3 year Korean War. That is more than the entire Pacific campaign against Japan during WWII.
Over 3 million civilians were believed to have been killed during the war, as the US literally burned every town possible to the ground in North Korea with napalm. They destroyed hydroelectric facilities and irrigation dams, flooding farmland and destroying crops.
The US even considered using nuclear weapons on China and North Korea: in the early 1950’s. The US has been plotting on nuking North Korea for over half a century.
According to an article from the Intercept titled “Why Do North Koreans Hate Us? One Reason — They Remember the Korean War.”:
How many Americans know that “over a period of three years or so,” to quote Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay, head of the Strategic Air Command during the Korean War, “we killed off … 20 percent of the population”?
Twenty. Percent. For a point of comparison, the Nazis exterminated 20 percent of Poland’s pre-World War II population. According to LeMay, “We went over there and fought the war and eventually burned down every town in North Korea.”
Every. Town. More than 3 million civilians are believed to have been killed in the fighting, the vast majority of them in the north.
For more info, research the Korean War and make sure to find some sources who don’t support the mainstream narrative.
As far as this hydrogen bomb test goes, a hydrogen bomb is definitely a massively dangerous thing, but people must understand that hyped up danger is a goldmine for the military industrial complex, and they 100% need this kind of threat to justify the amount of money that is spent on the military. They need this hype.
