“Uncle” – Russia’s Vladimir Putin Calls For “Talks” With North Korea…

More Bigly winning.  This announcement must be contextualized with timing and prior knowledge of discussions between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.   Remember, the BRICS group (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) just held their economic meeting.

(link) 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for talks with North Korea, saying sanctions are not a solution.

Putin made the remarks Wednesday after meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Vladivostok, Russia.  North Korea says it detonated a hydrogen bomb in its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.

Putin, speaking in China on Tuesday, had condemned the nuclear test as provocative, but said that Russia views sanctions on North Korea as “useless and ineffective.” (link)

During last week’s BRICS forum, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin agreed with the larger principle that “denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsular was now an acceptable goal for China and Russia.  However, the U.S. didn’t flinch on announcing the possibility of UN Security Council sanctions beyond the DPRK, specifically targeted toward North Korea’s economic enablers (Russia and China).

That Trump administration approach puts Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin in a precarious position on the world stage.  They don’t want to be seen voting against sanctions placed upon North Korea – it would remove their enabler masks.  They cried “unfair”.

Adding to the economic pressure, after the BRICS meeting India’s Prime Minister Modi essentially stated he was exiting the assembly due to significant geopolitical conflicts with China.  President Trump and PM Modi have been forming an economic alliance as the U.S. looks to leverage India as a possible economic replacement trade partner for China.

Again, the request by Xi Jinping for “six party talks” (China, Russia, N-Korea, Japan, S-Korea and the U.S.) is the signal everyone should be looking for to determine when China finally acquiesces to the geopolitical economic pressure President Trump has artfully assigned.

This announcement today by Russia’s Vladimir Putin, after meeting with South Korea’s Moon Jae-in, is a strong indication Putin and Xi Jinping have discussed and are likely to make that announcement.  Beijing knows such a call by their President would indicate weakness, and it makes sense China would utilize Russia to break the ice and allow the appearance of their failed economic strategy to fall under the guise of diplomacy.

Accept this call by Russia for what it is, Russia and China crying “uncle”.

President Trump winning.

Remember, China is seeking conquest through economic power. China must be confronted economically. China must be defeated economically. The moment China sees economic defeat, it will act differently. China will eventually call for six party talks.

Communist Beijing has boxed themselves into this inescapable trap.  The reason they keep authorizing Kim Jong-un to take action is simply because China has no alternative leverage to use against President Trump.  China has nothing in their economic arsenal they can use to hit back against President Trump, so Beijing keeps using North Korea in an attempt to create leverage.

However, President Trump doesn’t play along with the bluff, he knows every card China is holding. Trump knows China has no substantive economic leverage against the U.S., and Trump also knows China has boxed themselves into this cycle.  It’s a ridiculous three step process.

¹China tells DPRK to do stupid thing.  ²DPRK does stupid thing.  ³Trump hits China with economic punishment for stupid thing.

This cycle has been ongoing for months now, yet the media apparently doesn’t notice it. Each time Kim Jong-un does a stupid, Donald Trump slaps Xi Jinping.  The only way out of this cycle is for Beijing to concede and lay the DPRK defeat at the feet of Kim Jong-un.  The conceding will evidence itself when Beijing inevitably calls for ‘Six Party Talks‘.

President Trump can play out this action/response dynamic as long as it takes to reach economic victory. There is no substantive downside in the economic battle for the U.S.

Everything is proceeding according to the intensely predictable plan:

AUGUST 13th […]  So we can safely predict that sometime in late fall, most likely before the ASEAN visit timeline in November, President Trump and Rex Tillerson will be engaged in a new round of Six Party Talks, initiated by request of the increasingly desperate China.

China will structure the DPRK talking points to set up the meetings.  This is a part of how China is allowed to save face and sets up the magnanimous Panda narrative.

The six party talks will be essentially a Marshal Plan of sorts for North Korea.  Japan, South Korea, The United States, China, Russia and North Korea will enter into a set of negotiations publicly sold as engaging in diplomacy and reducing tension.

President Trump is going to win this geopolitical battle against China/N-Korea through the effective use of economics as geopolitical leverage to ensure national security objectives.  Trump will also position Xi Jinping as magnanimous panda as part of the plan.

However, the funny thing is, the media, having paid no attention to how President Trump has utilized economic leverage for months, will be oblivious to how this victory was actually achieved.

          With the death of the Soviet Union Russia no longer has any specific interest in North Korea other than as an immediate neighbor.

          However, North Korea has been a communist Chinese puppet state since the 1950’s and part of a Chinese security strategy. As Sundance has said China will save face by having Russia do the call for peace talks. Concerned and magnanimous Panda China will waddle into the talks and save humanity.

          Also another angle to this is perhaps that China is using North Korea to conduct nuclear weapons testing because China hasn’t tested a nuke for something like 40-50 years if I’m not mistaken. I don’t believe for one second that the nuclear technology is organic to North Korea.

              Not that, strategically speaking for us, the use of nuclear weapons by North Korea would in any way above ground be a bad thing (I said strategically). Once the Norks actually use a single nuke, we are basically entitled to the following laundry list:

              – unlimited invasion of North Korea, which just happens to be on the Chinese border

              – unconditional surrender

              – total occupation

              – use of nukes on North Korea itself in any way we want

              – creation of a fully nuclearized military firebase ON CHINA’S BORDER, which can defend itself against Chinese invasion by nuking its own territory.

              The list goes on. As you can see, North Korea using nukes against us basically puts China in their much-hated spot of No. 2 for the rest of Earth’s history. It is the ultimate weakness of the North Korean sock-puppet play. China’s use of a part of “itself” to attack us, opens itself up our takeover of “part of China”.

              Strategically speaking, therefore, any use of nukes by the North is automatic serious trouble for China. The return for us on that mistake is endless.

              THAT needs to be in the public consciousness. The fact that we would want to instantly use any SERIOUS Nork provocation to basically put down China – somewhat peacefully
              – for a million years.

              This is why I don’t worry about the North. They want to give us gifts? Please. Give us the biggie of nuclear world domination and bases on China’s border. And remember.

              Just shooting a nuke at us (or maybe that even LOOKS like it was pointed at us) that we knock down, not going off, counts.

          Spread the word yourself. All of us are the new media. “Word of mouth” used to be the most reliable way to get information, and now because of the corrupt corporate media it is agajn. That’s why they tried to label social media as “fake news,” they don’t like the competition. But social media has become our main source for information precisely because people can see the MSM is fake.

          All you need to do is point out what is happening, and people see the truth. Even the moon bats who keep arguing with you see it, they just won’t admit it. But that seed has been planted, and it may eventually bear some fruit.

          There are baby boomers in my family who have woken up after decades of being brain dead Dems. I’m working on my parents and my siblings. One of my sisters is already on the Trump Train after spending her youth as a rabid liberal.

            I was in my old college town last weekend expecting the worst. The college kids I came across seemed like they were almost entirely unaffected by MSM propaganda. Nothing at all like what we read about, with safe space snowflakes and such.

            Conservative? Maybe not really, Trump doesnt really consider himself “conservative” either. But all the kids that I talked to reject MSM talking points like it would be unnatural to accept them in the first place.

            It might be rose colored glasses on my part, but I think there is a cultural shift that we are only beginning to see. The kids mouthing “FAKE NEWS!” in the background of the CNN broadcast was my first hint.

            The destruction of discourse that unfortunately started with my generation is being mended by these kids. Let me explain: you could see the nasty divisiveness of the radical left take steps in the late 80s, when I was in college, to completely discredit any slightly conservative-thinking person as inhuman. This was a few steps past the regular crap. I am not so self-referential (or reverential) to think that this type of discord started with my generation. I will say, however, that the PC insidiousness was the next-generation push that all the 60s radicals that were then our professors were using to “finish the job” they started.

            It is backfiring. Kids are not just getting one perspective, and they are savvy enough, even at young ages these days, to see the strings attached. My daughter has a group of kids that eat lunch together and share memes: they call themselves the conservative corner. You would be amazed at what they are doing and thinking and they engage their peers in non-hysterical discussion. You can think I am guilty of being an over-proud father and you’d be right, but these kids are WAY ahead of where we were on this issue. I have more than hope, I have conviction about the coming generation.

          One experience always stood out. Certain coaches had a way of making winning, or something very close to it, out of very difficult situations when it appeared there was no hope. And certain players had ways of getting on base and making base running thrilling when the chips were down.

        Great movie line. One of my favorite movies. Actually stole a line from it, and it worked!

        My daughter is a competitive Hunter/Jumper (horses jumping fences). Several years ago, a rider (maybe 8 yrs old) from the same barn was at her first show and was nervous as a crook in church. She had huge alligator tears welling up as her group was about to go in. As she was sitting in the saddle, I was holding the horse. Everyone was talking to her at the same time. Coach couldn’t get her settled, mom couldn’t, older girls from barn couldn’t, everybody tried but she was having none of it. Only response was a head shake “No” and more tears. You could see she was in that moment where you see it all, everything is going a million miles an hour and you can’t process it but you do see one tiny thing so crystal clear in slow motion it’s unexplainable.
        I tapped her on the leg, she turned to look down at me and I simply said, “Hey, sweetie, you know what? You get to ride a horse today.”
        She smiled just enough to see it through the tears, didn’t say anything, turned back to her mom, wiped her face with her jacket sleeve, nodded “yes” to her mom and went in, big puffy eyes and all.

        Her mom smiled and thanked me. I told her to watch “The Rookie,” and said she would know it when she saw it. It was a good day. 😎

This is actually a threat to Congress, get your act together or I will put on the squeeze. (Probably with help of a lawsuit from state AGs)

      At this point DACA people, unless criminal are on the backburner. Trump already say he would start with the criminals and toss them out first so there is really no change in his policy just the usual YSM playing with semantics.
      …………………

      Remember that the REAL GOAL of the Yellow Stream Media is to separate Trump from his supporters so it is safe for the Elite to have him removed. This is why President Trump has attack the honesty of the YSM from day one.

      As long as Trump keeps his ACTIVE supporters enthusiastic, moving against Trump is VERY DANGEROUS. Unlike when Kennedy and Nixon were ‘removed’ this time there is a wide awake electorate who KNOWS who the string pullers are and who aids them. With the Doxxing of CNN by 4-chan and this, there are probably some rather nervous people out there.
      *****************

      As some have said were are in the middle of a civil war.

      Here is the Communist Game Plan:
      The job of the YSM is to make the people lose confidence in our elected leader. The resist movement and ANTIFA’s job is to Orate and harangue. To play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Arouse the anger of the normal citizen. (Protests, Violence, attack statutes, symbols, Christian religion….)

      One hundred years ago William Russell** was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:

      The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

If I read the previous Russian/China words correctly on calling for more talks, Russia/China preconditioned those talks on ending the U.S./South Korea war games. To my knowledge, that is what precipitated Haley’s last words on these proposed talks as being “insulting.”

          The question is, has Russia/China dropped this precondition? Have not yet found that answer, but will keep looking.

            The issue is the different points of view of the various parties. The Korean War has never officially ended, the fighting stopped due to an Armistice Agreement which has been in effect since the 50’s. There has never been a peace treaty official ending the war.

            The United States believes it is okay to transport troops thousands of miles to conduct war games on the borders of Russia, North Korea, or China, sometimes based on offensive scenarios rather than defensive ones, with our allies. We call this legitimate training activities. However, if one of the above parties conduct their own military activities that they believe to be prudent responses to ours, we call them provocative.

            Both sides need to stand down before a mistake is made and thousands of people are killed.

            I don’t believe the U.S./South Korea war games are an issue at this point as they have ended for the year. However, conducting simulated attacks against North Korean command targets is hardly helpful.

            I would post the links, but it would only cause more disturbances here at the CTH, but you might try looking at some of the articles over at The Saker or The Unz Review. I believe you will find some interesting point of views, even though you may not agree with them.

              Have read Saker, Unz, and several others for quite some time. Just yesterday listened to a 2-1/2 hour interview with the Saker. Fascinating man.

                Yes the Saker is indeed a fascinating fellow. He makes many valid points that Trump is no longer his own man, but has been captured by the deep state and explains why he believes that. I thought about posting the link to these articles, but his vitriol towards Trump would make some heads explode here.

                The following article is excellent in that id lays out how BRIC is bypassing the U.S. on the economic front.

                Also, Putin hasn’t been sitting on the sidelines but has been on the offensive on the diplomatic and economic fronts.

                I wish more here at the CTH would follow your example and read and explore a wider range of opinions and stop calling everything that they disagree with “Fake News.”

                  Interesting articles, thank you, had missed those. I have found The Saker in particular, but many others in general, to be not quite correct in their assessment of Pres Trump, imo. Pres Trump, imo, like many of us, is too old and too set in his ways to be swayed by too many outside opinions, but unlike some (many?) is still open to new ideas and willing to try something else. Pres Trump is far from perfect, though, and is carrying much baggage.

                  That said, for consideration as regards to North and South Korea – station Russian and/or Chinese soldiers with the North Korean soldiers on the 38th parallel. Begin Russian and/or Chinese war games with the North Koreans. Install Russian S300 or S400 missile defense systems, or whatever equivalent the Chinese have, on the North Korean side to match our THAADs on the South Korean side. Remove North Korean nukes and begin IAEA/UN inspections, similar to the Iranian inspections.

                  Concurrently, begin talks to achieve a peace agreement between North and South Korea to end the Korean War.

                  Eventually, the entire world unites to fight the alien space invaders. Ok, strike that last, I know there are no aliens.

    While the art history major pundits scream and whine, let’s look at the real numbers of a trade war like President Trump would, being the pragmatist he is.
    If ALL American imports from China equal 800 billion, that’s still an amount equivalent to less than 4% of our total GDP of 20 trillion.
    Do you think we could easily find another source for Smithfield Ham, Tyson Chicken, and bath towels OTHER than China? I bet we could.
    If we cannot export to China, we lose about 300 billion annually and in the short term, which amounts to a 1.5% blip in our economy. Most of our exports to China are agricultural and every country wants FOOD.
    On the other hand, if the Chinese economy is 9.5 trillion, the 800 billion in exports + 200 billion (estimated) in back door imports to Mexico/Canada, is about 10% of China’s economy. Bigger number. AND the exports FROM China are largely from coastal manufacturing cities, whose economies are geared toward manufacturing exports. It would bring Chinese factories and the export cites of Shenzhen, Xiamen, JuiJiang, and Shanghai, to a standstill.
    It’s all about the leverage.
    Go Trump Go!!!

      Won’t back check your numbers but I remember President Trump saying during the campaign that we had all the cards. I believe he has been saying that for years.

      Another thought occurs to me. One of the problems we had in the steel and textile industries as they migrated offshore is our factories and infrastructure was very out dated. Many dating back to WWII or older. China and others ate our lunch with not only cheaper labor but new more efficient facilities which are now showing their age. Now as these businesses move back on shore now we will have the modern, automated highly efficient facilities. Those that can’t economically retool may very well remain off shore.

        And with lower energy costs, those factories will cost less to run on a daily basis. Which means that buying American will not necessarily cost more. or not that much more. BUT I would gladly spend more and have done so when I know that it benefits the US. It’s why I buy Bob’s Red Mill and King Arthur Flour as often as I can even though it costs more

        This is what Trump had to say about China in his first campaign speech:

        “We have all the cards, but we don’t know how to use them. We don’t even know that we have the cards, because our leaders don’t understand the game. We could turn off that spigot by charging them tax until they behave properly.”

        President Trump knows every card China has and every card we have. He knows we will win. The plan is intensely predictable because it’s the same plan Trump has been talking about for years. It’s plain to see for anyone without anti-Trump blinders.

  30. If this strategy fails and North Korea’s threats escalate, President Trump will eventually do what President Kennedy did to the USSR during the Cuban Missile Crisis. That is to say any military action taken by North Korea against the USA or it’s allies will be considered an action taken by China.

    All of this stuff from Muh Russia to Mueller to the incident in VA to Lucifer’s last stand is nothing but White Noise! What our President is about to accomplish with NK will be studied for the next 100+ years.

    This proves to me that China has accepted their faith! Our President is talking with President Xi again today. I have a funny feeling that he will reiterate to Xi that if this nonsense with NK doesn’t end, he will destroy them economically through sanctions on their banks and restricting trade with the US. Xi realizes that for President Modi (from India) to walkaway from BRICS, he is inching closer and closer to finalizing a MAJOR trade deal with the US.

    Xi will once again ask if our President will be coming in November/December for the visit. Our President will say yes if the issue with NK is resolved. Xi knows that the trip to China doesn’t occur without NK being settled. We will see China take the necessary steps to do what our Lion has asked of them.

    President Trump will be going into the history books as the man that ended the 64 year old Korean War. China will also agree to hundreds of billions of dollars of Coal and LNG to offset the trade discrepancy. It will be a win-win for both countries since China needs to purchase energy for their 1.7 billion people.

    Better to buy from America and allow our Lion to brag about our ENERGY DOMINANCE!
