Không chỉ riêng dân Âu Mỹ Úc bị báo chí chính qui lừa phỉnh, mà ngay dân Nam Hàn “nạn nhân” trực tiếp nếu có chiến tranh xảy ra tại bán đảo này, cũng bị Mỹ lừa hổng cẳng.

Như chúng ta đều biết nhà nước Mỹ và báo chí chính qui đều hùng hổ loan tin chiến hạm Mỹ đến Nam Hàn để  bênh vực bảo vệ Nam Hàn và “dạy chú Ủn” mộtba2i học….

Thế nhưng  hôm nay, 19-4-2017 tin chính thức cho biết sự thật “hạm đội tiến công” (Strike group) này chẳng đến Nam Hàn mà còn đi ngược hướng về phia Ấn Độ Dương, cách Nam Hàn cả hàng ngàn dặm! Nghĩa là mấy ngày qua từ thằng hề xì Trum tổng thống cho đến loa đài các xứ tay sai như Úc Anh Đức v.v to mồm hù dọa nhưng thật sự chúng chẳng biết gì về cái hạm đội này chẳng hề có mặt!!! Cũng có nghĩa đây là màn “đôi bên giả vờ” để hù dọa quần chúng mà thôi.

Moon-Jae-in-1250x650Dân Nam Hàn thuộc giới “ngụy ngục” vẫn thần tượng quân đội Pak Chung Hee vừa đau điếng qua vụ tổng thống “phe ta”, con gái tên quân phiệt Pak Chung Hee, tay sai Mỹ- vừa bị dân chúng tống ra khỏi dinh thự “nhà xanh” , nhân cơ hội này hùng hổ ủng hộ Mỹ khiêu khích Bắc Hàn với mong ước để làm màn ngáo ộp đe dọa tạo thế căng thẳng cho “quân đội phe ta” tiến lên trong cuộc bầu cử tổng thống Nam Hàn đang đến, mà trong đó ứng viên phe đối lập Moon Jae-in có chủ trương  dân chủ ôn hòa và chính sách đàm thoại với Bắc Hàn đang thắng thế.

Thực chất  màn to mồm hung hăng của Mỹ chẳng qua chỉ để “tăng điểm” cho tên hề chèo to mồm Xì Trum đang dần lộ mặt nạ mất uy tín với dân “ngục Mỹ”  từng ủng hộ hắn- và cũng là thủ đoạn đe dọa ứng viên đối lập Moon Jae-in có khuynh hướng ôn hòa hợp tác với Bắc Hàn trong hướng giải quyết vấn đề nội bộ dân tộc Hàn với nhau. Hiện nay theo thống kê thăm dò dư luận, đa số dân Nam Hàn đều muốn người Hàn tự giải quyết mâu thuẫn Nam Bắc hơn là để Âu Mỹ chủ động. Dĩ nhiên đám Hàn ngục vẫn hung hăng thờ Mỹ như đám ngụy ngục của giống dòi đậu phỏng đỏ: Chúng chỉ muốn quyền lực và chiến tranh!

SEOUL, South Korea — Just 10 days ago, when news broke that the Trump administration was sending the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson to the Korean Peninsula, many South Koreans feared a possible war with North Korea. Others cheered for Washington, calling the deployment a powerful symbol of its commitment to deterring the North.

On Wednesday, after it was revealed that the carrier strike group was actually thousands of miles away and had been sailing in the opposite direction, toward the Indian Ocean, it left South Koreans feeling bewildered, cheated and even manipulated by the United States, their country’s most important ally.

“Trump’s lie over the Carl Vinson,” read a headline on the website of the newspaper JoongAng Ilbo on Wednesday. “Xi Jinping and Putin must have had a good jeer over this one.”

“Like North Korea, which is often accused of displaying fake missiles during military parades, is the United States, too, now employing ‘bluffing’ as its North Korea policy?” the article asked.

The episode raised questions about whether major allies of the United States, like South Korea and Japan, had been informed of the carrier’s whereabouts, and whether the misinformation undercut America’s strategy to contain North Korea’s nuclear ambitions by using empty threats.

American aircraft carriers regularly visit waters near the Korean Peninsula as part of annual military exercises with South Korea and Japan. But when the United States Pacific Command said on April 9 that the Carl Vinson had been ordered to leave Singapore and return to the Western Pacific, the decision was considered highly unusual, as it had been in exercises off the Korean Peninsula just last month.

“We’re sending an armada,” President Trump said 10 days ago.

On Wednesday, the South Korean Defense Ministry declined to comment, other than to say that the United States and South Korea do not discuss the details of their joint strategy to deter North Korean provocations.

But critics accused the ministry of fanning jitters among South Koreans before a May 9 presidential election in which North Korea’s behavior has been a central issue — as have Seoul’s close military ties to Washington.

“There is no way for South Korea not to have known that the Carl Vinson would not be in Korean waters last Saturday,” said Kim Dong-yub, a former navy officer and defense analyst at the Institute for Far Eastern Studies at Kyungnam University in Seoul. “Still, they kept mum, doing nothing to ease the anxiety when security was a key election issue.”

“What they did was nothing short of trying to influence the election,” Mr. Kim said. “The whole episode is a reminder of how fettered South Korea remains to its alliance with the United States.”

Shin In-kyun, a military expert who runs the civic group Korea Defense Network, said that Mr. Trump appeared to have used the Carl Vinson as a feint aimed at preventing North Korea from conducting a nuclear test.

“It would have been very awkward for the South Korean military to come out and clarify when they knew that Trump was bluffing,” Mr. Shin said. “The bluffing worked, in fact. North Korea didn’t do a nuclear test last Saturday.”

Coupled with Mr. Trump’s order to strike a Syrian air base with dozens of missiles, and repeated warnings from his senior aides that “military options” were not off the table in dealing with North Korea, news of the Carl Vinson rushing back to Korean waters stirred anxiety in South Korea.

The fear was that if North Korea were to conduct a nuclear or long-range missile test on Saturday to commemorate the 105th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-sung, the North’s founding president and the grandfather of Kim Jong-un, the Carl Vinson would be in Korean waters by then to launch a pre-emptive strike.

North Korea, never one to be outdone in tough talk, accused the United States of bringing war to Korea and vowed to respond with nuclear attacks at American military bases in South Korea and Japan. This week, it unveiled a video depicting its missiles engulfing an American city in flames, shown as a backdrop for the Kim Il-sung celebration.

In South Korea, all major candidates for the presidential election issued statements warning that a pre-emptive American strike would set off a full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula. They intensified their bickering over who was best suited to keep the peace on the peninsula.

Kim Ky-baek, who runs the nationalist South Korean website Minjokcorea, expressed fears that the Carl Vinson episode would damage Mr. Trump’s credibility among South Koreans.

“Trump may say this was part of his smoke-screen tactic,” he said. “But the impression we get is that the Trump administration still doesn’t know what it is really trying to do with North Korea, and has no clear and efficient line of communication.”

When the chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga, the Japanese government spokesman, was asked about the issue at his daily news briefing on Wednesday, he declined to address the misreported itinerary directly.

“It’s an operational matter for the United States military,” he said.

But Hideshi Takesada, a professor at the Institute of World Studies at Takushoku University in Japan, said it was inconceivable that the Japanese military was unaware of plans for the Carl Vinson’s deployment.

“When it comes to matters that concern Japan, the two militaries communicate essentially in real time,” he said.

By allowing misconceptions about the strike group’s location to persist, he added, the Trump administration had ratcheted up pressure on North Korea. Officials in Tokyo effectively cooperated by not speaking out.

“Whatever the case, whether it was deliberate misinformation or a miscommunication between the Pentagon and the White House, it’s quite serious,” said Narushige Michishita, a specialist in international security at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies in Tokyo. “It undermines the credibility of U.S. leadership.”

The United States continues to adopt a muscular posture toward North Korea, however, with Vice President Mike Pence promising during a visit to Japan on Wednesday that Washington would give an “overwhelming and effective” response to the use of conventional or nuclear weapons.

The Carl Vinson is now actually headed to the Korean Peninsula and is expected to arrive in the region next week, Pentagon officials say. April 25 is another major anniversary in North Korea, the birthday of the Korean People’s Army, and some analysts say the North might try to celebrate with a major provocation.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Rear Adm. James W. Kilby, commander of the Carl Vinson carrier strike group, said its deployment “has been extended 30 days to provide a persistent presence in the waters off the Korean Peninsula.”
