For a President who initially promised an ‘America First’ policy during his election campaigning, Trump has shown that US Imperialism is alive and well.

Examples include his threat to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran, the continued interference in Venezuela, where a desire to get American hands on their oil reserves is a key motivation, his recent promise to put more troops in Afghanistan and his aggressive threats towards North Korea.

North Korea understands only too well the dangers from the US. Painted as a paranoid, evil country by the western press it is worth remembering what the US did to it during the Korean war. By the time of the armistice in July 1953 there had been an estimated 1.3 million military and civilian Korean casualties out of a population of about 9.6 million before the war. Its entire infrastructure, including the greater part of its towns and cities, had been obliterated.

Much of the destruction was caused by aerial bombardment. The US Air Force dropped 635,000 tons of explosives, more than the entire Pacific Theatre of WW2, including 32,000 tons of napalm.

Not surprisingly North Korea prioritises national defence in its constitution, having a policy of ‘songun’ or ‘military first’. They understand only too well that even countries which give up their nuclear ambitions, like Libya, will still be attacked. For this reason they consider their nuclear programme to be a defence ‘in the present world where the law of the jungle prevails’ (statement by the North Korean Foreign Ministry).

That the government is using Huawei technology, is a sign of independence. We don't want to be trussed up and handed over to a new neoliberal trade deal with the US, just as we got out of the neoliberal EU. Farage is pushing US interests.
No to US sanctions.
No to US bullying.

The ugly truth is that China has bought and paid for the UK establishment. Our elite has been captured yet again. https://www.newsweek.com/huawei-boris-johnson-conservative-rebellion-churchill-farage-1488582

Cuba is the safest destination for tourism, because of its people's hospitality. SOCIALISM.

Meanwhile many countries and Amnesty international have warned about violence to tourists in the USA. RAMPANT CAPITALISM.
