Via U.S. State Department: Joint Statement on North Korea

Joint statement on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (D.P.R.K.) by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats:

Past efforts have failed to halt North Korea’s unlawful weapons programs and nuclear and ballistic missile tests. With each provocation, North Korea jeopardizes stability in Northeast Asia and poses a growing threat to our Allies and the U.S. homeland.

North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons is an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority. Upon assuming office, President Trump ordered a thorough review of U.S. policy pertaining to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (D.P.R.K.).

Today, along with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford, we briefed Members of Congress on the review. The President’s approach aims to pressure North Korea into dismantling its nuclear, ballistic missile, and proliferation programs by tightening economic sanctions and pursuing diplomatic measures with our Allies and regional partners.

We are engaging responsible members of the international community to increase pressure on the D.P.R.K. in order to convince the regime to de-escalate and return to the path of dialogue. We will maintain our close coordination and cooperation with our Allies, especially the Republic of Korea and Japan, as we work together to preserve stability and prosperity in the region.

The United States seeks stability and the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We remain open to negotiations towards that goal. However, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our Allies.

U.S. Department of State

Every administration faces the challenges of having to engage in confronting missile proliferation threats by other state actors as well as non-state actors. When questioned by the people to justify such engagements, protecting our best interests no longer seems to be a legitimate enough reason. If one feels that we as a nation are selfish to think for our own interests and won't accept justification for national security, think of the ramifications for global security.

Via U.S. State Department: Statement missile non-proliferation

On its 30th anniversary, we recognize the importance of the Missile Technology Control Regime. The MTCR is an outstanding example of multilateral nonproliferation cooperation.

Thirty years ago on April 16, 1987, the United States and its G-7 partners (Canada, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom) announced the formation of the MTCR. The focus of this partnership is to restrict the transfer of missiles capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction and related technologies. Since 1987, 28 additional countries have joined the Regime, and many other countries have adopted export controls consistent with the MTCR standards. In 2016, the Regime welcomed India as its newest member.

While the missile programs and proliferation activities of Iran, North Korea, Syria and non-state actors are reminders that much work remains to be done, the MTCR has made it more difficult and costly for proliferators to produce or acquire missiles capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction than otherwise would be the case. The Regime’s success enhances America’s security and the world’s.

It is in the interest of the American people and the wider global community to oppose the spread of missile systems and technology to those who would misuse it. The United States looks forward to continued close cooperation with all members of the MTCR – and with states that are not members but have adopted export controls consistent with the Regime’s standards – to further promote missile nonproliferation and global security.

Damning revelations and shameless propaganda. ABC News also investigated the Syria hoax story and confirmed that it was promoted by a network of Russian social media accounts to 'validate' false-flag chemical weapons attack. The hoax was redistributed and published by extreme right personalities in the U.S. including Mike Cernovich, who touted the debunked 'Pizzagate' conspiracy theory.

The dissemination of misinformed fake pieces, incorrect information and conspiracy theories published in the wake of the Syria strikes promotes divisiveness in times of war. This is a great reference for fact checking what's been published out there.

Some Trump supporters called the chemical attack a hoax, and some critics said the airstrike was staged. Both sides have flimsy proof.

The Exhaustion of American Liberalism

Wow, read this excellent article over breakfast today and just had to share. Shelby Steele really hits the nail on the head. "Subsequently the American left reconstituted itself as the keeper of America’s moral legitimacy. (Conservatism, focused on freedom and wealth, had little moral clout.) From that followed today’s markers of white guilt—political correctness, identity politics, environmental orthodoxy, the diversity cult..."

Shelby Steele writes that white guilt gave us a mock politics based on the pretense of moral authority.
