Nov 18 - South Korea Ditches The US, Signs Defense Agreement With China
 

 
The defence ministers of South Korea and China have agreed to develop their security ties to ensure stability in north-east Asia, the latest indication that Washington’s long-standing alliances in the region are fraying.

On the sidelines of regional security talks in Bangkok on Sunday, Jeong Kyeong-doo, the South Korean minister of defence, and his Chinese counterpart, Wei Fenghe, agreed to set up more military hotlines and to push ahead with a visit by Mr Jeong to China next year to “foster bilateral exchanges and cooperation in defence”, South Korea’s defence ministry said.

Seoul’s announcement coincided with growing resentment at the $5 billion (£3.9bn) annual fee that Washington is demanding to keep 28,500 US troops in South Korea.

That figure is a sharp increase from the $923 million that Seoul paid this year, which was an 8 per cent increase on the previous year.

An editorial in Monday’s edition of The Korea Times warned that the security alliance between the two countries “may fall apart due to Washington’s blatantly excessive demands”.

Mr Trump has previously threatened to withdraw US troops if his demands are not met, with the editorial accusing the president of regarding the Korea-US mutual defence treaty “as a property deal to make money”.

The vast majority of Koreans agree, with a recent survey by the Korea Institute for National Reunification showing that 96 per cent of people are opposed to Seoul paying more for the US military presence.

There is also irritation at the pressure that Washington is applying to the South to make Seoul sign an extension to a three-way agreement on sharing military information with the US and Japan.

The General Security of Military Information Agreement is due to expire at midnight on November 23 and South Korea insists that it will only agree to an extension if Japan cancels restrictions on exports of chemicals critical to the South’s microchip industry.

Japan is widely believed to have imposed the restrictions as the latest incident in its troubled relationship with South Korea, which includes the issue of compensation for labourers put to work during Japan’s colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula.

The two nations' defence ministers held discussions with Mark Esper, the US defence secretary, at the weekend but hopes that a breakthrough might materialise came to nothing.

Just days before an agreement designed to protect the allies from North Korean belligerence runs out, Tokyo and Seoul merely reiterated their long-held positions.


The US demanded in July that Japan pay $8 billion a year to keep 54,000 US military personnel in the country, Foreign Policy reported late last week.

Tokyo currently contributes $2 billion a year to US military costs in Japan.

“This kind of demand, not only the exorbitant number, but the way it is being done, could trigger anti-Americanism”, Bruce Klinger, an analyst at the Heritage Foundation think tank, told Foreign Policy.

“If you weaken alliances, and potentially decrease deterrence and US troop presence, that benefits North Korea, China and Russia, who see the potential for reduced US influence and support for our allies”.


Daniel Pinkston, a professor of international relations at the Seoul campus of Troy University, was more blunt in his a*sessment.

“It’s just extortion”, he told The Telegraph. “It’s little more than a mob boss going around and demanding protection money. The numbers that the US is demanding are politically impossible for Seoul and Tokyo to swallow and that is just fuelling resentment."

Japan already separated their troops from the US in the Middle East. The foreign policy that trump is pushing is making the US irrelevant. Surrendering Asia to the Chinese and the Middle East to Russia. There was also the announcement today that the US is given up moral authority to Israel to decide the fate of Palestinians in the West Bank.

Today is only Monday.

One day not too long from now after this current presidentency has been succeeded and everyone has had time to reflect on the last several years, we'll all look back to this presidency as the turning point in history when American hegemony in the global community ended.

He is, but (just) his stupidity isn't what we're witnessing right now.

In addition to what bro above us said, I want to add that when we look back on this moment we will view Trump less as a human president, and more of a projectile weapon purposefully aimed at Washington that (with specific intent) was sent to destroy laws, norms, cabinet positions, international ties, and politicians themselves.

The Trump presidency is not JUST illegitimate, but also a literal ATTACK on the country. I believe we will view it on the same level as any other foreign attack on our soil.

Holy sh*t if this is true. Hate it or love it your way of life in the US is because of military presence and financial influence around the world.

You're a fu*king idiot. Trump is destroying our country from the inside out, benefiting our adversaries and you're still stuck on stupid, straight denial. Can't believe people are this fu*king stupid.

The empire usually crumbles within....... these elites have been living the fat cat life and it’s coming to a close. Foreign policy has been disastrous for years, not just recently. Democrats and Republicans have fu*ked the American people over to live good. Other countries are saying no more, no more carrot or stick. We can go play by ourselves and you can keep your stupid ball.

Lol right?

Our intelligence determined Russia meddled in the election

Every meeting with Putin is closed door with no record

He publicly sided with Putin over US intelligence at Helsinki

He talks sh*t about anyone except Putin

What he did with Ukraine was to the benefit of Russia

What he did in Syria was to the benefit of Russia

Russians just took over our vacant base there

Trump has done business with Russia since the 80's

He lied about having an active Moscow tower deal during the campaign

He said Crimea should belong to Russia

He gave classified info to Russian officials in the WH

He called the sanctions on Russia unconstitutional

He keeps sh*tting on NATO

He invited Putin to the White House and the one reason it didn't happen was Putin's choice not to

His campaign staff and administration had a sh*t ton of Russian connects

This all started with Trump saying he has NO Russian ties and his administration had NO communications with Russia

Be this real or fake. The real know. The Un-united states of memerica has been a complete joke for nigh a decade now. The rest of the world making power moves. Meanwhile Everyone back west is arguing and tweeting about comicbook movies, oushing their agendas on others, stunting for social media, and all around just hating eachother more than ever. My prayers are with yawl!

So Trump loses our ally South Korea to China

North Korea is longer going to have any relationships with the US

Trump deads the Iran nuclear deal that they were abiding by and now are nuclear arming up

Trump abandons our Kurdish allies and now they've joined Russia

The Trump Admin. has gifted Russia with everything they've wanted internationally

The only thing Russia hasn't gotten is our Obama sanctions dropped which Trump attempted the first day he got into office

Trump has beefed with all our European allies other than the other Russian agent, Boris Johnson

Soooo.. when do we start winning?
