Although this blog is supposed to be about Palestine and Israel, I just want to mention how sickening CBC coverage is of the current North Korea coverage. It is just repeating US nonsense, and thus warmongering like the US Government. This does not serve world peace or Canadian interests.
There is no North Korean threat separate from US provocation. North Korea is like a mouse, and the US an elephant. All this media nonsense about a North Korea threat is just warmongering hype, and CBC is repeating and echoing it.
Look at this headline today:
North Korea will have Guam attack plan ready by mid-August, military statement says
'Americans should sleep well at night,' Rex Tillerson says, as Trump boasts about nuclear arsenal
The Chinese have told the US that the problem can be solved if there is a "Freeze for a Freeze". That is if the US stops its constant threats and provocations against North Korea, that North Korea will freeze its nuclear activities. But the US keeps insisting that the Norh Koreans should render themselves helpless, before the US will talk to them. This is a nonsensical negotiating position.
CBC should be highlighting the "freeze for a freeze" proposal, not just ignoring it, in favour of the nonsense coming out of the US.
This is Canada, not the USA, and we need to reduce the level of warmongering, not echo it.
