Quote: US Defense Secretary: South Korea Missile Defense ‘Going to Happen’
Insists Chinese Opposition Is Irrelevant to the Program

Speaking today at a seminar, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter insisted that China’s objection to the planned Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system being installed in South Korea would have no impact on US intentions, saying the system is “going to happen.”

Carter went on to say that the missile defense program “has nothing to do with the Chinese,” and that China should instead focus on harming North Korea’s ability to develop missiles. Carter began talking up the plan after North Korea’s satellite launch in February.

China agreed recently to impose sanctions on North Korea over its January nuclear test, but insists that the THAAD threatens to undermine their own strategic deterrent in the region, because its range is far beyond the Korean Peninsula, and extends deep into Chinese territory.

Like many of the pricey US missile defense systems, the ability of the THAAD to be an effective foil to a proper missile attack is unclear, though from China’s perspective uncertainty about it might oblige them to increase the size of their arsenal to retain the same strike capability
.
China does not want to take over America, but is not a sissy either. Never has been, and has never tried to take over the world.





Be cool Mr. Carter, or don't. That's up to you and yours.
He's works for the arms industry. He's one of these revolving-door appointees.
This has nothing to do with North Korea. Like with Russia in Ukraine and other Russian border countries... it is about giving the US first nuclear strike advantage over next door China. Putin is seen in an interview laughing hilariously about planned American missles around his borders being about nuclear missile defense against Iran. Putin has been publicly stating this, and by the same measure the US's intended South Korean missile... upset the nuclear balance that has kept the world world from WWW3 upnto this point. Americas goal is to at some point neuter Russa & China with a defacto survivable nuclear adavantage giving them near unchallenged control over west and east strategically.

I would not be surprised if the US was actually giving support to Kim Jogn-Un with his nuclear plays. This would be even better than their ISIS charade.

I suspect that's also why 'Obama' had tried to mend relations with Cuba. America's cabal doesn't want Russia back near America's border.

yes. i've been asserting this for years that NK is totally supported by proxy by Japan, US, South Korea as a type of east asian wildcard they can play in a multitude of ways. great for maintaining US troops in the region, selling weapons and also providing an excuse to install missile defense in this region

North korea is IMMENSELY helpful to the US war machine.

and very conveniently Park Guen Hye steps down after she took care of the most important business.. installing Thaad in South korea.

this puts SK in a very dangerous position. why piss off your next door neighbor like this? this is very dangerous for them. China may not be able to hit US easily with nukes, but they can definitely hit SK very easily. Very dumb move by Korea.

Park Geun Hye will go down as one of the most shameless leaders in Korean history
