On 24 November, just one day after the exchange of artillery
shelling between two Koreans, a border conflict provoked
by the South by entering a disputed territory and opening
fire in the water, the Obama
administration immediately moved to exploit the situation
by escalating the tensions further.
On 26 November, just two days after Obama announced to send
nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Washington along with five
warships to the
Yellow Sea to play war games in China’s front gate, Obama’s
genetically-powered crop-seeds carrier Monsanto along
with Beachell-Borlaug International Scholars Program entered
Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Wuhan and handed
cheque to 25 Chinese students pursuing Ph.Ds in GM
wheat and rice breeding.
The deputy chief of the CASS Liu Xu was terribly grateful
for US GM businessmen’s generosity and promised to hold more
GM summit meetings, to carry out more joint research projects,
to establish more shared laboratories and to scale up full
collaborations between American GM company and Chinese GM
players with a collective business objective which is to
force-feed 1.3 billion Chinese with GM rice, and beyond.
By “beyond”, it means to achieve an ultimate goal of feeding
GM crops to the world-wide population. In so doing, Monsanto
will be the god to control everybody’s food, and the life,
and with the help of their Chinese collaborators, like deputy
chief Liu Xu, like Professor Zachary Burton’s watchdog Shi-min
Fang, the most fanatic promoter of GM food in China.

– in laboratory or in office – to play innocent regarding
China GM research's close association with Monsanto)
On 28 November, just two days after US Monsanto brought
GM rice related cheques to China’s Academy, US troops brought
nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and related warships to
China’s front yard, and fired, and bombed, and are still
firing and still bombing, and threaded Chinese, alleged by
South Korean media, that if China dares to fight back (go
to the war), US will make China go back 100 years.
It is said that South
Korean President Lee Myung-bak has prepared to sacrifice
100,000 South Korean lives to unite two Koreas by force.
If history is any guide, 60 years ago, another South Korean
president Lee had already put this war-business plan into
practice but ended up with American
troops experiencing a spectacular defeat first time in its
And if surveys produced by South Korean authority could
also be any guide, we do have one conducted by it just shortly
before the military conflict on the peninsula.
The study questioned 2,400 primary and high school students
in South Korea, China, Japan and
United States in terms how proud they feel of their country.
China scores the highest with 84.2 percent responded positively
while South Korea and Japan are at the bottom, with only
62.9% and 55.3% giving a positive hint. When inquired how
willing they are to fight for their country, again, Chinese
youths top the charts with 74.8 percent replied yes,
while among the American youths, more than half declined
to help their country (only 49.7% said they will). The situations
are not any more promising in South Korean and Japan, with
only 56.3 and 29.3 said yes respectively.
In 1950, General
Douglas MacArthur’s promise of “home by Christmas”
ruined not only his next 14 Christmases but the myth of
US military invincibility. In 2010, a former US commander’s
vow to make China go back 100 years may result America
itself slipping back 500 years to a pre-White-colonial
era when native Indians freely
lived on their own land.
But hang on! We may need to think again over the whole scenario.
And again, if history is any guide, 60x3-10 years ago, Mr
Obama’s maternal ancestors in Britain sent gunboats to fire
at China’s water gate as a measure of military support for
British businessmen inside China selling opium to Chinese
with the help of corrupted local scholar-officials.
Is history really a guide?
Will the next military confrontation between China and the
United States be the second Korean
War or the third Opium War?
