Biden Regime Wants to Use South Korea & Japan as Sacrificial Lambs Against China

At a summit at Camp David, United States President Joe Biden announced a “new era of cooperation” with allies such as Japan and South Korea. 

On August 18, 2023, Biden met with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol at Camp David to discuss plans of bolstering the three countries’ strategic partnership in the face of an ever erratic North Korea and an ascendant China.

Historically speaking, Japan and South Korea have had relatively tense relations due to Imperial Japan’s previous subjugation of the latter. However, those previous tensions are appearing to go away now that Japan and South Korea face common challenges from North Korea and China. 

Biden has pursued efforts to build stronger ties with allies in the Asia-Pacific region in an effort to contain China. This is part of the “pivot to Asia” strategy the US is employing to confront China. 

When asked about the trilateral meeting on August 18, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Wang Wenbin declared: “No country should seek its own security at the expense of other countries’ security interests and regional peace and stability,” adding the Asia-Pacific region shouldn’t be “turned into a wrestling ground for geopolitical competition.”

In a statement published after the summit wrapped up, the three leaders revealed a new “commitment to consult,” a three-way hotline, a commitment to carry out annual military exercises, share intelligence, and hold a new annual trilateral summit.

“Mr. President, Mr. Prime Minister, this is the first summit I’ve hosted at Camp David as president – I can think of no more fitting location to begin the next era, our next era of cooperation, a place that has long symbolized the power of new beginnings and new possibilities,” Biden declared.

In the joint statement, Biden, Kishida and Yoon touted the three countries’ trilateral partnership as a necessary tool to have during “a time of unparalleled opportunity for our countries and our citizens, and at a hinge point of history, when geopolitical competition, the climate crisis, Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, and nuclear provocations test us.”

“This is a moment that requires unity and coordinated action from true partners, and it is a moment we intend to meet, together. Japan, the Republic of Korea, and the United States are determined to align our collective efforts because we believe our trilateral partnership advances the security and prosperity of all our people, the region, and the world,” the statement added.

In the joint statement, the three leaders additionally manifested “concerns about actions inconsistent with the rules-based international order, which undermine regional peace and prosperity,” while specifically calling out “the dangerous and aggressive behavior supporting unlawful maritime claims that we have recently witnessed by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in the South China Sea.” 

With respect to North Korea, the three leaders “reaffirm our commitment to the complete denuclearization of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in accordance with relevant UNSC resolutions and urge the DPRK to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.”

“We strongly condemn the DPRK’s unprecedented number of ballistic missile launches, including multiple intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launches and conventional military actions that pose a grave threat to peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and beyond,” the statement highlighted. “We express concern regarding the DPRK’s illicit cyber activities that fund its unlawful WMD and ballistic missile programs.”

From the looks of it, the US is going full steam ahead with its effort to contain China. Japan and South Korea appear to be one of the few sacrificial lambs the US will use in this anti-China campaign. For US foreign policy elites, countries are mere pawns on the geopolitical chessboard. We’ve already seen this in Ukraine, as the US has armed Ukraine to the teeth in an effort to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian much to the detriment of the Ukrainian nation. 

It will likely do the same with East and Southeast Asian nations as the US consummates it pivot to Asia. Hopefully, there are strong leaders in Asia who exercise some degree of realism and restraint and don’t comply with the US’s militaristic agenda. 

If not, change will most definitely have to come from within the US, as America First nationalists take control and re-orient US foreign policy back to its southern border with Mexico and the Western Hemisphere.
