Globalresearch is an anti-"Western" website that can't distinguish between serious analysis and discreditable junk — and so publishes both. It's basically the moonbat equivalent to Infowars or WND.

While some of GlobalResearch's articles discuss legitimate humanitarian concerns, its view of science, economics, and geopolitics is conspiracist — if something goes wrong, the Jews West did it! The site has long been a crank magnet: If you disagree with "Western" sources on 9/11, or HAARP, or vaccines, or H1N1, or climate change, or anything published by the "mainstream" media, then GlobalResearch is guaranteed to have a page you will love.

The website (under the domain names globalresearch.ca(link), .org(link), and .com(link)) is run by the Montreal-based non-profit The Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG) founded by Michel Chossudovsky, a former professor of economics at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

Whenever someone makes a remarkable claim and cites GlobalResearch, they are almost certainly wrong.

Truth is that Kim is approaching a threshold of his own making,


: China moves 150,000 troops to North Korea border as US ready to strike
A MASSIVE army has been moved towards the North Korean border as the world braces itself for the outbreak of war.

China sent the huge contingent of military might as well medics in preparation for a possible attack on the country by the United States.

Chinese officials are reportedly worried that a strike on the hermit state could spark waves of refugees flooding over the border.

President Donald Trump's decision to bomb Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical attack by its leader Bashar al-Assad is apparently what prompted the move.

China is said to be worried about Trump's gung-ho attitude to military action in other countries, fearing Syria was him "warning" of an attack on NK.

Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met last week where they reportedly discussed Kim Jong-un's obsession with nuclear weapons.

Following the Syria bombing – a North Korean ally – Kim threatened to reduce the US "to ashes" in retaliation.

Trump has sent the Carl Vinson Strike Group to the Korean peninsula, with the US literally ready to launch an attack at a moment's notice.

Reports first emerged that troops were on their way to North Korea on Chinese social media this weekend.

A photo shared online claimed it showed lines of military trains travelling through Shengyeng – a city close to the border.

A giant submarine fleet is also said to have arrived nearby.

The mainstream Western media is anti anyone not Western or under the thumb of Western powers. Neither side's biases necessarily make the reporting to be automatically correct or incorrect. You just have to read a bit of everything before drawing your own conclusions.

One attribute of websites like Global Research which gives them credibility is that they continually challenge by asking to see the PROOF for claims made in Western media on claims such as Assad done it or Putin done it, something that Western media used to do but rarely does now.

Yes I accept that alternative media sources are also full of claims lacking proof but not all of it is and to open our minds to alternative possibilities is better than spending one's life as an ignorant bigot denying everything that doesn't fit the carefully tailored image that has been designed for us.

Pressured by Trump, it looks like China may do something about North Korea's nukes

Alex Lockie

After a Chinese envoy arrived in South Korea, the two sides have agreed to take "strong action" against North Korea if the North continues to test nuclear and ballistic missiles, according to VOA News. 

Joel Witt, the cofounder of 38 North, a website that brings together experts on North Korea, told Business Insider that the country's progress in developing nuclear and ballistic missiles had appeared to rapidly increase over the past year.

With each test, North Korea gets closer to its goal of creating an intercontinental ballistic missile that could threaten the US mainland. US President Donald Trump's administration has been clear it is open to taking military action to try to prevent this.

Trump, in an interview with the Financial Times before his meeting last week with Chinese President Xi Jinping, said "if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will."

It remains to be seen whether South Korea and China's vision of unacceptable behavior matches the US's, as the US has signaled growing impatience with the North's nuclear posturing. 

Now, with the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and strike group redirected to the Korean Peninsula, South Korea and Chinese diplomats seem to have struck an agreement on handling the North Korean missile threat that does not involve a US strike. 

North Korea called the Vinson's deployment an "outrageous act" and said it was "ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US."

While the US certainly sent a message with a recent salvo of 59 cruise missiles directed at a Syrian air base, it faces far more limited options in striking North Korea, which has an array of missile launchers and artillery that could effectively level Seoul, South Korea's capital of 10 million people.

Experts have told Business Insider that while China disapproves of North Korea's nuclear threats, it has a much deeper interest in preserving a North Korean state as a buffer against Western influences, fearing a strong, united Korea complete with democracy and US military installations.

Furthermore, the Chinese appear to have been spooked by a recent deployment of advanced missile defenses to South Korea, which the US put in place after a particularly provocative missile test from the North. 

Trump reportedly discussed the north Korean issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday, with the two reaffirming their commitment to denuclearizing the peninsula and adhering to all UN sanctions against the Hermit Kingdom.
