Biden's Seppuke (hara-kiri) Diplomacy in East Asia(상)


Sound of Biden's War Drum is getting louder threatening Korea and China with the support of Japan


Dr. Joseph H. Chung, Ph.D. (정희수) Professor of Economics, Quebec University in Montreal




East Asia had the opportunity of witnessing the diplomacy of one of the most seasoned diplomats of the United States. Joe Biden, President of the U.S. He spent five days in Korea and Japan from May 20 to May 24.


The world was expecting to see real professional diplomacy which did not seek only the interests of the U.S.; the world was hoping see a diplomacy which promoted also the interests of the partner countries, especially, Japan and Korea.


However, to the great disappointment of many, Biden was repeating Washington's old foreign policy determined by the warmongering CIA, the National Security Council and the Department of State.


As a matter of fact, Biden came to East Asia with the chilly wind of war and for the recruitment of soldiers who will fight for Washington.


This paper discusses two outcomes of Biden's East Asia visit, namely, the intensification of regional security risks and the recruitment of countries which will be asked to conduct proxy war against China.


1. Intensification of Regional Security Risk


The regional security risk had increased due to the following decisions of Biden: the North Korea Policy, the trilateral military alliance Japan-ROK-the U.S. and the Biden's declaration of American military intervention in the possible Taiwan-China war.


Biden's North Korea policy offered nothing new. Instead, he has made two commitments which will surely further intensify the North-South tension; it may bring even possible armed conflict.


First, he accepted the request of the new conservative government of Yoon Suk-yeol to beef up the striking power of the ROK army by promising the deployment of strategic military assets such as, for instance, the strategic nuclear weapon.


Second, Biden reiterated Washington's favourite nuclear rhetoric:"If Kim Jung-un denuclearizes North Korea, the U.S. might engage with Pyongyang for peace!" What he was really saying is this: "We have no intention of establishing peace on the Korea Peninsula."


These two declarations of Biden have further alarmed North Korea which had been quite annoyed by Yoon's previous declaration of his intention of pre-emptive attack against North Korea.


Now, the Japan-Korea-US trilateral military alliance (JKUS military alliance) means in fact Japan-Korea military alliance.


The military relation between Korea and the U.S. is more than a military alliance, because Washington can command ROK army in case of war. In fact, South Korea is a part of American armed forces as long as Washington has the OPCON (the right of Washington to command the ROK armed forces in war involving South Korea)


What is worrisome of the Japan-Korea military alliance is the possibility of the presence of Japanese army on the Korean soil.


For Koreans, such possibility is a nightmare, because, they know that the Japan's ambition of ruling Asia again-especially Korea-is still alive. In particular for North Koreans, such military alliance means the possible participation of Japanese army in the attack against North Korea.

North Korea is already reacting violently. Recently, it launched 13 missiles including 4 missiles simultaneously to show that it can hit several targets at the same time. These missiles are of short-range or medium -range missiles threatening South Korea and Japan.


There is no doubt that the election of Yoon as president representing the anti-North Korean pro-Japan South Korean conservatives combined with the warmongering Washington establishment and the Japanese ambition to restore the glory of the Meiji Era are enough to threaten North Korea.


Under such circumstance, North Korea might decide to join the Russia-China bloc in global East-West shooting war and the reunification will be no more; South Korea will meet its death. Yoon will remain the worst traitor to the Korean race.


What is even more terrifying thing is Biden's declaration of militarily intervene in the possible Taiwan-China war. This is surely an intervention into China's internal affairs.


The world knows that the U.S. has recognized the One-China policy by virtue of the three joint statements (1972, 1979 and 1982) and the Taiwan Relation Act (1979). In fact, Biden admitted the One-China policy only few months ago.


However, Washington has been violating the One-China principle for decades through the policies of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT). In accordance with the 1982 Agreement with China (the 6 Assurances of Ronald Reagan), Washington can provide only "defensive weapons" to Taiwan. But I wonder if there is such thing as defensive weapon. For decades, Washington has been pouring billions of dollars worth of weapons. Donald Trump gave every year 4 billion USD to Taiwan. Can we believe that all these weapons are only for defensive purpose?


In a way, the contradictory Taiwan policy of Washington is understandable, for Taiwan is in fact the American fixed aircraft carrier threatening China at its front door.


It is said that if U.S. loses Taiwan, its regional interests in East Asia will be seriously damaged. This is the worst kind of imperialist attitude. How can a country claim its interest by arming a part of a foreign sovereign country?


But, for China, a Taiwan armed to the teeth is intolerable theat. So, Washington is provoking the collision course with China. To force People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) to invade Taiwan, Washington can break one of the conditions which can justify such invasion


There are five conditions which allow Beijing to invade Taiwan:


•Taiwan's declaration of independence,

• Internal turmoil in Taiwan,

• Taiwan' military alliance with foreign country,

• Taiwan's acquisition of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) such as strategic nuclear weapon and

• Violation of the Taipei-Beijing Consensus for One-China of 1992.


Washington can ask Japan to provoke a situation in which one of these conditions can be broken even without the declaration of Taiwan independence. The easiest thing to do is to send a Weapon of Massive Destruction (WMD) to Taiwan such as strategic nuclear weapon or organize internal turmoil within Taiwan or form Japan-Taiwan military alliance.


Japan will be happy to accommodate such request of Washington, because it is the dream of the Neo-Meiji Restoration Group (NMRG) led by Shinzo Abe to beat China with Washington's help and become once again the ruler of Asia, if not the world.


Thus, to be sure, Biden was successful in making the war dram to sound lauder in East Asia. (다음 호에 계속)
