    Yes. They should set up a fund and let Najib be in charge of it. Six months later everyone will be so confused where all the fund disappeared to that everyone will forget about any brewing military conflict. World peace restored!

    Don’t count on Russia to get rid of Assad

    By Philip Gordon April 11 at 10:05 AM

    Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, shakes hands with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad at the Kremlin in Moscow in a photo made available in October 2015. (Pool photo by Alexey Druzhinyn/Ria Novosti via European Pressphoto Agency)

    Philip Gordon is a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. From 2009 to 2013 he was assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, and from 2013 to 2015 he was special assistant to the president and White House coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf region.

    The Trump administration’s Syria policy continues to evolve in remarkable, even head-spinning ways. In the past two weeks alone, President Trump has pivoted from resolutely opposing U.S. military intervention to ordering missile strikes, and from acceptance of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remaining in power to a renewed focus on getting rid of him.

    Now a third shoe may be about to drop. As Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives for his visit in Moscow, the administration is signaling that Trump may be preparing to pivot from an approach that prioritizes working with Russia in Syria to one that presses Moscow to help with Assad’s removal. This was the strategy spelled out by top administration officials over the weekend, with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley explaining that we would not see peace in Syria or the region “with Assad as the head of the regime” or “with Russia covering up for Assad.” On Monday, a spokesman for British Prime Minister Theresa May put out a statement asserting that May and Trump had agreed that “a window of opportunity now exists in which to persuade Russia that its alliance with Assad is no longer in its strategic interest.”

    Getting rid of Assad is a desirable goal given the horrors he has inflicted on his population and the region, and getting Russia to split with him would help accomplish that goal given Assad’s dependence on Moscow. The problem, however, is that there is almost no prospect that Russia will go along with U.S. pleas for such assistance, no matter how much pressure Tillerson seeks to exert. The reality is that if Washington wants to get rid of Assad, it’s going to have to do so over Russia, not with it.

    This conclusion should be obvious from years of painful U.S. experience that carries lessons for Trump. As the assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, I joined then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for countless meetings with her Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, focused on getting Russia to drop its support for Assad. The closest we came was at the U.N.-sponsored Geneva talks in 2012, when we succeeded in getting an agreement on a transitional Syrian government whose leaders would be chosen by “mutual consent.” For the United States and our European and Arab allies, that phrase meant only if the opposition agreed, and so Assad had to go. But Lavrov quickly claimed that “mutual consent” meant that Assad also had to agree, which meant he was staying.

    Clinton’s successor, John Kerry, faced similar Russian obstructionism when trying to win Russian support for getting beyond Assad. Even as U.S. support for the opposition increased, the civil war dragged on and the costs of Russia’s support for Assad mounted, Moscow always rejected the argument that Assad’s policies were producing the very sort of Islamist extremism that it claimed to be fighting. Russian officials continued to tell us they were not Assad’s protectors, but quickly and more importantly added that it was not up to us to choose Syria’s government and that they had no intention of pushing him out.

    Those who put faith then in the hope that Moscow would come around — or who may now be thinking that is the way forward — overlook the depth of Russia’s perceived self-interest in keeping Assad in power. First, the very concept of regime change is anathema to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Whether in Iraq, Georgia, Ukraine or Libya, Putin has vehemently opposed the notion that if local populations did not like their governments they could take up arms against them until the United States and its allies — Russia’s geopolitical enemies — came to their rescue. Putin’s hostility toward Clinton — and part of the reason he intervened in the U.S. elections to ensure her defeat — was due to his paranoid fear that regime change was what she had in mind when she criticized Russia’s flawed parliamentary election in December 2011. Putin will do everything he can to ensure that Syria does not set a precedent that might invite others in the region — or even someday in Moscow — to use violence to overthrow their rulers.

    The second reason Moscow is so hostile to regime change in Syria is that it believes — in this case not without merit — that it would not result in a stable, pro-Western regime (“bad enough” from Moscow’s perspective) but rather, that it would lead only to more chaos, instability and extremism. On this point, Russians are probably sincere when they say that they have no love lost for Assad but that they vastly prefer him to the Sunni extremists they are certain would take over Damascus — or at least fight each other for control — if Assad actually fell.

    In interviews over the weekend, Tillerson said he hoped Moscow was “thinking carefully about its continued alliance with Bashar al-Assad.” National security adviser H.R. McMaster expressed his hope that “Russia could be part of the solution” if it could “reevaluate” what it is doing.

    The problem is that Russia knows exactly what it is doing, and it is highly determined to keep on doing it. As the Trump administration looks to change Moscow’s calculus, it had better understand that it will take a lot more than a single set of missile strikes to do so.

    North Korea readies for war? Kim Jong-un orders evacuation of Pyongyang
    12.04.2017

    North Korea readies for war? Kim Jong-un orders evacuation of Pyongyang. 60263.jpeg
    AP photo

    North Koreaт leader Kim Jong-un ordered 25 percent of Pyongyang residents to leave the city immediately.

    In accordance with the order, 600,000 people should be urgently evacuated. Experts note that the evacuation will most likely be conducted due to extremely strained tensions in relations with the United States of America.

    Reportedly, Pyongyang's bomb shelters will not be able to accommodate the entire population of the North Korean capital. Therefore, 600,000 people - mostly individuals with criminal records - will have to leave Pyongyang to let others use bomb shelters.

    It was also said that one modified Ohio type rocket carrier carrying 154 Tomahawk type missiles on board joined the US Navy deployed near the coast of the Korean Peninsula. The missile carrier is expected to arrive at the port of registration on April 18.

    Meanwhile, according to South Korean media, residents of the DPRK say goodbye to each other, to their homes, to their places of work, to forests and fields, to the sky, rivers, etc as if the nation prepares for a large-scale war. At the same time, it is forbidden to say goodbye to officers of law enforcement agencies. It is also strictly forbidden to mention the names of national leaders in words of farewell.

    Chinese social media said a couple of days ago that auxiliary troops and doctors were heading to the border of North Korea. One of the photos showed a chain of military trains moving around Shenyang - a city about 200 miles from the North Korean border.

    About 150,000 Chinese soldiers were mobilised in an anticipation of North Korean refugees who may flee the country in the event of an American air strike.

    Lieutenant-General H. R. McMaster, in turn, said that his commander-in-chief ordered to deploy an aircraft carrier strike group of the United States in the region. McMaster believes that the decision to deploy US Navy ships in the Sea of Japan was "reasonable," taking into consideration the North Korean "model of provocative behaviour."

    North Korea condemned Trump's attack on Syria, calling the cruise missile attack of the United States an act of "intolerable aggression."

    Noteworthy, China refuted the news about the deployment of 150,000 troops to the border of the DPRK.

    Experts believe that tensions may aggravate further after April 15, when the DPRK may conduct another test of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    At the same time, Russia's well-known Orientalist, Professor Andrei Lankov, who has been living and working in Seoul for many years, said that if the United States attacked North Korea, Pyongyang's retaliatory strike would pose an immediate threat to the lives of 25 million residents of Seoul as the city sits very close to the border between the Northand the South. Another Korean war would be inevitable, the expert believes.

    It has been reported that Japan prepares to evacuate its citizens from South Korea as well in connection with growing tensions around North Korea, NHK reports with reference to Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.

    If war breaks out in North Korea, the victims will be South Korea, Japan and China. It's be projected that US will take out North Korea's air power within minutes and bombarded all known land batteries. After which, they may send in land troops from South Korea. However, it will not stop North Korea from sending missiles into Japan and South Korea (potentially nuclear). In addition, the other challenge is North Korea's sleeper agents and submarines that will probably disappear but continue to wreck havoc for a very, very long time.

    US is trying to create another Syria in Asia to destabilized the region. Start the war and leave the others to clear the mess. China will be pissed, Japan and South Korea will bear the biggest brunt of it. That being said, the war will be swift and probably over in a matter of hours but the danger will linger on. I doubt China will allow this to happen. If anything, they will probably be the ones to lead the preemptive strike instead of US. Kenna its force by Trump the bully.

    North Korean missiles may be capable of delivering sarin nerve gas, says Japan’s prime minister amid concerns that the hermit state may respond to the US naval buildup in the region ahead of the 105th birthday of its late ruler Kim Il-sung.

    Speaking to lawmakers, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said there is possibility that North Korea already has the capacity to equip missile warheads with sarin projectiles, according to Nikkei Asia Review.

    He maintained that Pyongyang is rapidly improving its nuclear and missile technology, urging the international community “to stay united and make a drastic change in the way North Korea moves towards a dangerous road.” Abe said the Japanese Self-Defense Force has no emergency plan in that regard, but stressed “the deterrent of the US-Japan alliance.”

    Later in the day, chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga said North Korea possesses “large stockpiles” of chemical weapons as well as industrial facilities to produce them, according to TASS.

    The alarming news comes amid a massive US military build-up near the Korean Peninsula, the largest for several years. Previously, US President Donald Trump threatened to take unilateral action against Pyongyang with or without support from regional powers, ordering the aircraft carrier group ‘USS Carl Vinson’ to execute a show of force near North Korean waters.

    This week, the White House issued another bellicose statement, saying US military assets in the region are not limited to the surface fleet. During a telephone conversation with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday, Trump told Xi he should inform North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that the US “doesn’t just have aircraft carriers, but also nuclear submarines,”according to Wall Street Journal.

    “You cannot allow a country like that to have nuclear power, nuclear weapons,” Trump said. “That’s mass destruction. He doesn’t have the delivery systems yet, but he will.”

    In turn, North Korea warned on Tuesday it would retaliate to any sign of American aggression with any means available.

    “If the US dares opt for a military action, crying out for ‘pre-emptive attack’, [Pyongyang] is ready to react. We will hold the US wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions,”said North Korea’s Foreign Ministry, as cited by AP.

    North Korea is currently preparing for its biggest national holiday, the 105th anniversary of the birth of state founder Kim Il-sung, grandfather of the current leader, dubbed the ‘Day of the Sun’.

    Pyongyang officials have already told foreign journalists on Tuesday that a “big and important event” is expected to take place, according to Reuters. Last April, North Korea test-fired its Musudan intermediate-range missile on the occasion of Kim Il-sung’s 104th birthday.

    In the meantime, South Korea urged calm and called upon the US to consult Seoul if it was considering military action against the North. “Under the South Korea-US alliance, any important measure on the North is taken under consultation with the South Korea government and it will continue in the future,” Yun told a parliamentary hearing, as cited by Reuters.

    Notably, South Korean officials said on Thursday there were no new signs indicating that North Korea is preparing a nuclear test was more likely, although they also said the North has maintained a state of readiness to conduct such a test at any time, Reuters reported.

    South Korea has always been wary of any coercive actions against its reclusive neighbor, even though its 600,000-strong armed forces are believed to be among the most capable and well-equipped militaries in the region. Seoul, a densely-populated metropolis of 10 million people, lies within reach of North Korean long-range artillery and rockets amassed along the demilitarized zone (DMZ), and any unprovoked aggression against Pyongyang could set off a catastrophic retaliation causing multiple civilian casualties.

    Russia and China, two world powers bordering North Korea, also advocated peaceful solution to the crisis. On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow is increasingly concerned about mounting tensions on the Korean Peninsula, urging Washington to get to the table and refrain from coercive measures.

    The Global Times, a Chinese state-run newspaper, wrote in an editorial that Beijing is ready to give Pyongyang security guarantees if it “complies with China’s declared advice and suspends nuclear activities.” US threats to Pyongyang are “more credible given its just-launched missile attack at an airbase in Syria,” the paper warned.”The Korean Peninsula has never been so close to a military clash since the North conducted its first nuclear test in 2006.”

    ‘Riskier than striking Syria’: Beijing warns US against attacking North Korea

    China has warned the US against using military force against North Korea, after a surprise redeployment of an aircraft carrier group. Washington’s regional allies said they expect it to consult with them before any action.

    Tension is mounting in the region as US President Donald Trump said he would solve the “North Korean problem” with or without China’s help. The warning came amid the diversion of the aircraft carrier group ‘USS Carl Vinson’ to the Korean Peninsula and a week after Trump ordered the US Navy to fire a barrage of 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase as punishment for an alleged chemical attack in Idlib province.

    Responding to US belligerence, Beijing called against using force against Pyongyang.

    “Military force cannot resolve the issue,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Beijing. “Amid challenge there is opportunity. Amid tensions we will also find a kind of opportunity to return to talks.”

    An editorial in the influential newspaper Global Times, which is published by the Chinese Communist Party’ People’s Daily, said the situation on the Korean Peninsula could not be compared to that of Syria.

    “Taking military actions against North Korea is much more risky than launching a missile strike on Syria. Pyongyang is able to deal a heavy blow to South Korea. Regardless of Pyongyang's nuclear capability, a radiological dispersal device, or a ‘dirty bomb,’ if thrown on the South, will cause nuclear pollution, which will be unbearable to this US ally,” the newspaper warned.

    The paper said Washington needs to accept the reality that it “has no power to put global affairs in order at the moment” and work with other leading world powers on the Korean situation through the UN Security Council, a body that the US has shun by the unilateral attack against Syria.

    US allies in the region, South Korea and Japan, have both asked Washington to consult with them before taking military action against Pyongyang. Both countries station thousands of US troops on their territories.

    The escalation comes as North Korea prepares to celebrate the birthday of its late leader Kim Il-sung on Saturday, which is a state holiday called ‘Day of the Sun’. Pyongyang has a record of timing demonstrations of military strength to the date, as many observers say it might to so this year to test Trump’s resolve.

    A Washington-based think tank, 38 North, claimed on Wednesday that satellite images of the North's Punggye-ri nuclear test site indicated an imminent new test. South Korean officials disagreed, saying no new activities were evident, but added that a sixth test may be conducted at any time.

    Japan scrambles jet fighters at record pace as Chinese military activity rises

    Posted 13 Apr 2017 15:15 Updated 13 Apr 2017 17:25

    TOKYO: Japan's air force scrambled fighter jets to chase away foreign aircraft at record pace in the year to March 31, government figures showed on Thursday, as Chinese military activity in and around the East China Sea escalated.

    Japan worries that China's probing of its air defences is part of a push to extend its military influence in the East China Sea and western Pacific, where Japan controls an island chain stretching 1,400 km (870 miles) south towards Taiwan.

    "Recently we have seen Chinese military aircraft operating further south and that is bringing them closer to the main Okinawa island and other parts of the island chain," Japan's top military commander, Admiral Katsutoshi Kawano, told a briefing in Tokyo.

    Okinawa is home to the biggest concentration of U.S. Marine Corp forces outside the United States, hosting the bulk of the roughly 50,000 U.S. military personnel stationed in Japan.

    Japan's Air Self Defence Force reported its fighters scrambled 1,168 times over the 12 months, up from 873 last year. A record 851 jets headed off approaching Chinese planes, or 280 more instances than in the corresponding period last year.

    The new figure was also well above the previous high of 944 incidents in 1984, when Russian, rather than Chinese, aircraft triggered most of the scrambles.

    The uptick in Chinese activity has contributed to rising tension in East Asia since the start of the year as North Korea pushes ahead with ballistic missile and nuclear bomb tests that have stoked fears in Japan, the United States and elsewhere.

    Japan's navy plans joint drills around the East China Sea with the U.S. Navy's Carl Vinson carrier strike group, as it steams towards the Korean peninsula, two sources told Reuters.

    Encounters with Russian aircraft, which are often bombers flying from the north that skirt around Japan's airspace, rose 4.5 percent, to 301 scrambles.

    Beijing Warns Rodrigo Duterte Not to Meddle in the South China Sea
    By Eleanor Ross On 4/13/17 at 12:58 PM

    World
    Asia
    Duterte
    China
    South China Sea
    Islands

    Towards the end of 2016, Rodrigo Duterte’s Philippines said goodbye to the United States—and hello to China, its new suitor.

    Duterte made much of the pivot away from America, a long-term ally, but also sounded a warning to Beijing: “I am no lapdog of any world power,” he said.

    A few months on and it may be that Duterte did not realize what being friends with one of the world’s largest superpowers entailed.

    Last week, Duterte said he would take control of territorial matters in the South China Sea by planting a flag on land claimed by the Philippines on their independence day, on June 12.

    His plan had been to head to Thitu, one of the disputed islands in the Spratlys, which are claimed by China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Brunei and Malaysia.

    “I have ordered the armed forces to occupy all—these so many islands, I think nine or 10—put up structures and the Philippine flag,” he told reporters. “And in the coming Independence Day of ours, I may go to Pag-asa island to raise the flag there. Even those that are vacant, let us habitate there. ”

    But just days later he canceled his plans in the face of a warning from Beijing.

    “Because of our friendship with China and because we value your friendship I will not go there to raise the Philippine flag,” Duterte said in a speech before the Filipino community in Riyadh. “They said: ‘Do not go there [...] please. I will correct myself because we value our friendship with China.”

    Around $5.3 trillion in trade passes through the South China Sea every year and the Council for Foreign Relations has suggested the risk of conflict over ownership of its islands is “significant”.

    But despite bidding farewell to the U.S., Duterte hasn’t completely abandoned Washington as a partner. The country recently accepted a weapons delivery from the U.S. in February, which contained 400 grenade launchers, 85 sniper rifles, and three unmanned aerial vehicles, which were given by the U.S. to help fight terrorism.
