It absolutely is theatre as distraction from Trumps failures as a president.

Its coming up to a year in power and a reasonable size of the populatuon has realised all hes done is take away millions of peoples healthcare.

I remember reading in the bourgeois press when Trump air striked Syria, journalists were fawning over him "becoming president".

The US has been at war 222 out of 239 years of its existence. We all know capitalism needs to flood over the globe and use battering rams to open new markets and investment.

America works best (for global capitalism) when its under a kind of martial law like it was under George W Bush. The simplistic narrative of hollywokd trash that passes as contemporary culture helps to position America as good guys and bad guys.

It is a feat of propaganda that the US considers itself the 'good guy's' given its history of overthrowing democracies and expropriating other countries natural resources, labor and land.

The really perverse thing is that the propaganda works so well that even non Americans buy into American exceptionalism.

Everything on the news is bread and circuses. Except they figured out fear and hierarchy is more effective at keeping us docile.

^this. It's all a spectacle to distract people from the soul-crushing nature of capitalist modernity.

I've lived in Korea for 9 years and have studied the Korean situation for even longer than that.

My professional opinion is that this has more to do with China and possibly even Russia then North Korea.

North Korea is about the size of Pennsylvania and the fact that they may or may not have one or two nuclear weapons doesn't really mean much of anything at all.

In fact there is evidence that suggests that the nuclear device that was tested in 2009 was purchased from South Africa and that the country does not have the capability of making its own weapons.
