Major Developments Strongly Suggest the End of Unipolar World Order

With Moon Jae-In’s victory in South Korea, the period of tension on the Korean Peninsula is likely to end. With the rise to power of the new president, South Korea can expect a sharp decline in hostilities with North Korea as well as a resumption of dialogue with China.

By Federico Pieraccini

An expected and highly anticipated victory was confirmed in South Korea on May 9, with candidate Moon winning South Korea’s presidential race over his rivals Hong Joon-pyo (Liberty Korea Party) and Ahn Cheol-soo (People’s Party). After the resignation and arrest of former President Park Geun-hye over an immense corruption scandal, public opinion turned away from her party in favour of the main opposition representative, a center-left lawyer specializing in humanitarian issues.

Moon (picture on the right side) spent several years in the opposition party advocating for greater cooperation in the region and dialogue with Pyongyang as well as with Beijing, representing quite a contrast to Guen-Hye’s pro-Americanism. Along the lines of Duterte in the Philippines, Moon intends to resume dialogue with all partners in order not to limit his options in the international arena. Such an approach reflects the essence of the multipolar world order: cooperation and dialogue with all partners in order to achieve a win-win outcome.

Looking at the situation in the region, the victory of a politician who seems to have every intention of negotiating an agreement rather than supporting military escalation seems to provide for a hopeful future for China and her neighbors. The level of cooperation and trade between South Korea and China is fundamental to the economy of both countries, so a return to the negotiating table over the issues surrounding the deployment of THAAD are a hopeful sign that the business communities of China and South Korea value deeply.

Duterte Strategy

The United States is again faced with a Filipino-like scenario. Historically, South Korea and the Philippines have always been two fundamental US allies, more concerned with Washington’s interests than their own national political agendas. Over the last few decades, both countries have been governed by politicians careful not to upset the sensibilities of US policy makers. South Korea and the Philippines are at the heart of the political strategy Obama called the Asian Pivot, more explicitly, a policy aimed at containing China and its expansion as a regional hegemon in Asia.

Following the Trump administration’s focus and threats against North Korea in recent weeks, war has seemed more likely on the peninsula. But with Moon’s victory, it has probably been permanently excluded as a possibility. In several interviews weeks prior to the election, Moon stated that a war between the US and the North Korea would constitute an impossible burden for South Korea to sustain. Moon is very realistic about the conventional deterrence that North Korea possesses, maybe even more so than the nuclear development.

Even though Trump has said he is willing to meet with Kim Jong-un, most of his decisions seem to depend on the hawks surrounding him. Looking at the first hundred days of the Trump administration shows a remarkable departure from electoral promises, with the influence of generals he nominated, leading to various escalations in the hot regions of the world. Bottom line is, Trump’s intentions and words matter to a certain extent as US posture in the region seems to be guided by military generals and inner circle family members. Fortunately for the world, the tentative moves in Syria and Afghanistan have not amounted to much, such as with the bombing of the Shayrat airbase or the show in Afghanistan involving the MOAB.

THAAD to Divide

The deployment of the THAAD system continues as part of a belligerent attitude towards North Korea. The strong and firm rhetoric of Pyongyang is justified and not surprising given the context and the threats facing the country in wake of US provocations. The deployment of THAAD has had consequences, such as increasing tensions between South Korea and China. Moon’s victory goes contrary to the goal of the US policy-makers in Washington to isolate China. In this light, the hurried deployment of THAAD before the South Korean election obliged the probable winner, Moon, to be faced with an accomplished fact. This first step makes it clear what Washington’s attitude towards the new South Korean president will be.

The THAAD has also been deployed to antagonize the most frustrating point between Seoul and Beijing: North Korea. The measure was intentionally taken by Washington to pressure Seoul. THAAD has all the characteristics of a Trojan horse. Placed to reassure an ally (Seoul) against a fake-threat (Pyongyang), it becomes a weapon against China that puts in place a system, only a few hundred miles from its border, potentially able to affect China’s strategic nuclear forces. The US military accelerated the deployment of THAAD in the knowledge that this would immediately place the future president in a difficult situation, in that removing THAAD would not be easy in the face of huge American pressure. This may perhaps be Moon’s first challenge; to use the dismantling of THAAD as a means of exchange with Beijing to return to a normal relationship of co-operation. If Beijing wants to believe Moon’s goodwill in eliminating the THAAD system, it may begin to loosen some of the measures imposed on Seoul as retaliation for the deployment of the US system.

Multipolar world to the rescue

In this scenario, one must not make the mistake of believing that Moon’s victory means that a major US ally will cease its support for Washington. As always, in this era of transition from a unipolar to a multipolar world, the pressure that Washington will decide to apply to South Korea will affect the nature of the US-ROK alliance. The United States will have to abandon the warlike posture so dear to Mattis, McMaster and Admiral Harris (the commander of the US Pacific Fleet). In this Tillerson as a realist might be the right man at the right place to negotiate with Moon. Potentially it could be possible to solve the problem in whole by dealing with North Korea, although that seems unlikely given the pressures the deep state will put on the administration to continue using North Korea to create instability in the region.

This is why much of the region’s future will remain subordinated to potential negotiations between Beijing, Pyongyang and Seoul on the Korean peninsula, especially after Moon’s victory. If these three nations succeed in finding common ground on which to set upon a path of reconciliation, the region will benefit greatly. Of course, in this context, the one most likely to lose influence is the United States. If Washington wants to remain relevant, it should abandon the Chinese containment plan through the Korean peninsula by exploiting North Korean problems. If they instead decide to try to sabotage any peace agreement in the peninsula, this will only push Seoul and Pyongyang even closer together, to Beijing’s great pleasure.

Recent years have seen a mounting showdown between the old world order configuration based on chaos and destruction and led by Washington, and the new multipolar order that focuses on win-win opportunities, dialogue and sincere cooperation. If Washington decides not to accept the new rules of the game, where it can no longer dictate the law, it will end up producing more damage against itself than any foreign country could actually do, in actual fact accelerating the formation of the multipolar world and putting to bed the unipolar world order for good.

  1. “Game Theory” – Geopolitical Overview – Monday – May 15, 2017

    [https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vHJQfhOxPTA/WRnddZ0O3SI/AAAAAAAAOsI/xplurpUayLI5N_t_TCeR44zDuJAwHIj1ACLcB/s400/image1.jpeg]

    Chinese Elders have surrounded Israel and are now choking off its resources that fuel its economy and military force, including and especially its only super power ally the United States of America (Trump).

    This means squeezing their entire economy which is 2% agriculture, 16% industry (products mostly high tech) and 82% services.

    Now because over 98%of their economy relies on either foreign currency or imported goods to survive, the Elders have simply eliminated both and basically rendered Israeli’s economy obsolete.

    Ukraine too. Oh my.

    So where’s their leverage?

    They believe it is in their unified chaos–insane yes–but that’s what they’re choosing to go with. It’s the nature of scorpions.

    And their strategy rests in the perception of the world no longer tolerating anti-Semitic behavior. That’s their whole game theory.

    As a result, the world has chosen to impose sovereign restrictions and sanctions on Israel or Ukraine, and ignore being demonized as anti-Semitic–when in truth the real demons are Netanyahu, Poroshenko and yes Donald J Trump, who are collectively attempting to hold the world hostage by denying the new financial system–as they know too all must go or none go.

    What’s the solution?

    Time and pressure. It’s the only way to wear down hard rock.

    But the NPTB are done waiting out the Zionists, who are literally down to 3 individual men at this point and the cowardly political and business groups they represent.

    The pressure is too much to bear now and they have been forced to surrender by publicly resigning.

    But they didn’t! And the deadline to surrender has come and gone as of today 00:00:01am EDT.

    Enough pressure was applied over the years to indicate their intentions. And now the NPTB are moving on in a variety of ways via import and export restrictions, currency restrictions, banking restrictions, raw good restrictions, political pressure, legal pressure, world media pressure and even straight up blackmail and arrest by military guard for treason.

    There are also some covert ghost assassinations on going, but we will leave those for another blog–or never post.

    Everything amnesty deal that was on the table is now off and the table has been taken away too. These last 3 hold outs are on their own and no longer getting to pick their own ending.

    Progressive growth terms for each country have already been worked out with alternative leadership who now no longer must wait patiently in the wings.

    This includes our own Republic. And this is the week it begins.

    As for the Ukraine they have no leverage on their own–Russia has long eliminated their entire economy and supply lines (China has done the same with North Korea many years earlier).

    But there are still two game theory scenarios left for the world’s last remaining geopolitical sovereign nation problem … Israel:

    1) Netanyahu will be forced to resign and accept the international compromise of a two state solution and return to pre-1967 boarders, as well as recognize Palestine as a nation state (Israel is recognized too btw), returning Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Palestine.

    Or…

    2) Netanyahu refuses to exit and is arrested and tried for treason in an international war crimes court, with Israel ceasing to exist as a nation state–forcing all current Jewish inhabitants to live either under Palestinian control or immigrate back to Europe (primarily Ukraine the native Khazarian homeland).

    At this time we don’t know which option he’s taken. But we believe Netanyahu will resign, as will Poroshenko and Trump in tandem–as they all agreed to resign already.

    But as of Monday morning they have not — publicly — which is the key.

    So finally the world is moving forward without the Zionists, and that is occurring right now, quietly, as all Paris Agreement governments have stopped buying and selling goods and services to any country or leader not in good standing with the new Chinese financial system (asset backed) as of Monday 12:01am EDT May 15, 2017.

    This effectively ends the cabals rule over humanity because it cripples there’s economies and no leader can keep the peace within their own political bodies or populations without money.

    See the current Trump Administration for a clear example of that. Trump’s executive orders are just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

    Currently, every country is on board with smoking out these misbehaving rogue sovereign exceptions: Israel (Netanyahu), Ukraine (Poroshenko) and United States of America (Trump).

    (*North Korea was long ago isolated by China and deemed militarily controllable. They are seen as a nuclear threat only to their own population at this stage.)

    Yet these last 3 desperadoes have decided to negotiate in a single pack instead of as individual nations because they create more leverage together than apart–what’s interestingly is that all three leaders are related by birth to one another (children of the cabal).

    Now the entire pack will be taken down in a matter of hours at some point this week, as none came to an agreeable renegotiated public exit over the weekend.

    Such negotiations with the cabal have now stopped we are told. Finished. Over.

    This is what one gets when deciding to permanently wrestle with Yahweh.

    So let the political fireworks begin and Yeshua’s wealth flow out to the masses. Sobeit.

    God is with us.

    1. From the depth of my heart, hope the above is right and not more empty blarney. The free and genuinely committed, to a common global future community– the billions who dearly desire a world of cooperation, geared on peace and through productive cohesion, journey our world to prosperity– must start winning somewhere– and if there’s one country in the position to and applying a wealth of its philosophical wisdom to boot — it is China.

      Let us hope the scenario becomes the familiar “Win-Win” one President Xi is so fond of using and with such quiet aplomb. China naturally is backed by Russia– only that China has more room to manoeuvre at this point.

      Read a very interesting essay– written in 2012, but even more current today than back then– and really recommend it as a worthwhile read … A contribution on Graham Hancock’s website– if you’re interested, you should read it with attention, because even if it initially is a slow read, the way it unfolds for the future of humankind, is mighty interesting. It is about the four Yugas and where we find ourselves at this point and will shortly be moving to … And for sure we’ll need a together world for that!
