North Korea: The war of the two million dead
President Donald Trump will begin this weekend his first visit to Asia in a journey dominated by the increasingly tense struggle being waged by Washington and Pyongyang. Trump's trip will take him to Japan - where he will arrive on Sunday after a stopover in Hawaii. , South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. The tour begins in the midst of a new dialectic scuffle between the two countries as a result of the attack practices carried out on Thursday by two American B-1B bombers escorted by South Korean airplanes in the area of the Peninsula, which North Korea said they had aim to reproduce "a surprise nuclear bombardment".
"The US imperialists are making the last efforts to stop the dynamic advance of North Korea, through the deployment of its strategic weapons, but our army and our people are not frightened by such movements," the North Korean official agency KCNA said. Security Advisor Trump, HR McMaster acknowledged that same day that during his stay in South Korea, the president will discuss with his local counterpart possible military options against the northern nation and defend his policy of "maximum pressure" towards Pyongyang. McMaster said it would be "irresponsible" not to analyze that possibility. "The reason why this issue has to be on the agenda is the behavior of this rebel regime and the threat posed by Kim Jong Un," the official told reporters from the 5 countries that the president will visit.
"The president (Trump) recognizes that we are running out of time," he added, and even set the limit that the White House has already set: "a few months." "We have to be a little patient for a few months to see what we can do as well as China," he said. The arrival of the president is stirring uncertainty about its unpredictable nature, in a region where forms are a basic element of social relations and policies. A spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying, alluded to precisely this misgivings and referring to the Korean crisis called on "all parties" -not quoted Trump directly- to "monitor their words and actions to alleviate the tension instead of aggravating it ". Trump will not go to the Demilitarized Zone In this regard, Washington announced that Trump will not go to the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two Koreas, a recurrent trip among the heads of state of the United States that have arrived in the southern nation. Since Ronald Reagan appeared in that sensitive enclave, where the separation of both armies is only a matter of meters, all the American leaders who succeeded him except George HW Bush have come to that place.The official version is that there is "no time" -according to an American spokesman- as the president will move to the military base of Humphreys, located about 90 kilometers south of Seoul.Anticipating the trip of the president, Beijing has launched a diplomatic offensive to approach both Seoul and Pyongyang, with which they maintained serious differences, in what seems a nod aimed at further eroding the influence of the American nation in this region. After the pact between China and South Korea announced this A week that aims to put an end to the dispute over the presence of the Thaad anti-missile shield in the latter country - a measure that caused a significant campaign of commercial and economic pressure against Seoul by China - the official agency Yonhap announced the next visit of the South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to the Chinese capital to influence this new dynamic. Almost coinciding with the time, the official media Chinese officials reported on the unusual and conciliatory message sent by Chinese President Xi Jinping to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday, saying that his country "would like to make efforts together with North Korea to promote relations between the two and achieve a solid relationship and stable development, and thus contribute positively to defending regional peace and stability and common prosperity. "The text was a response to the congratulations that Xi Jinping had received last week signed by Kim Jong Un himself on the occasion of the Chinese Communist Party congress, in which the latter wished him "a great success" at the head of the Asian nation This is the first exchange of communication of a personal nature that the two leaders have maintained since July 2016 and occurs just as Beijing and Pyongyang were going through a period of extreme uncertainty in their bilateral relations. US military spokespersons informed a group a few days ago. From reporters who traveled to Pearl Harbor with the joint chief of staff of the United States, General Joseph Dunford, China's growing military strength is already emerging as a challenge far superior to that represented by North Korea. The uniformed said that a confrontation with North Korea is a battle that "can be won" but with respect to China they simply explained that "they are worried about how things are happening. "The military revealed that now" it is very common for Chinese planes to intercept Americans "and even that Chinese strategic bombers" are carrying out practices to attack Guam ", approaching the island and testing their system defense.Dunford himself admitted that "China is the main long-term challenge in the region." "There are some who want to establish a narrative that says we will not stay in the Pacific, our message is that we are a power in the Pacific and we are going to stay," the general added. A hypothesis that several analysts like Carl Thayer are already questioning, who wondered in the publication 'The Diplomat' if "November 2017 will mark the moment in which the USA ceded the leadership of the Asia-Pacific region to China" in the face of "Trump's lack of experience" and his inability to think of " strategic way ".
