Well….this isn’t a good development. We are all probably across the fact that there has been an escalating fight happening between Donald Trump and North Korea, with threats flying willy nilly.
So far, the only reassuring thing about the whole thing has been that Australia has not specifically been called out in the conflict. But in bad news, that has now changed, with North Korean news agency KCNA releasing a statement specifically focusing on grievances with Malcolm Turnbull’s government.
According to a spokesman from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, NK is extremely unhappy with the Australian Defence Force joining in on Monday’s military exercises with U.S. and South Korean forces, even though it is an event they have participated in since 2010.
Not long after the Australian prime minister had stated that they would join in the aggressive moves of the US, even referring to ANZUS which exists in name only, the Australian military announced that they would dispatch their troops to the aggressive nuclear exercises of the US. This is a suicidal act of inviting disaster as it is an illustration of political immaturity unaware of the seriousness of the current situation.
This follows Turnbull’s recent comments saying that Australia would support the U.S. if they came under attack, which were singled out.
Australia followed the US to the Korean war, the Vietnamese war and the ‘war on terrorism’, but heavy loss of lives and assets were all that it got in return. The Australian government had better devote time and energy to maintaining peace of its own country, instead of forgetting the lessons learned in the past and joining the US in the moves for nuclear war.
This was all wrapped up with a pretty intense and clear message.
“Countries like Australia that join the military adventure against the DPRK, blindly following the US, will never avoid the counter-measures of justice by the DPRK.”
This is fine.
