Base Naval en Isla Jeju - amenaza directa a las costas Chinas por Occidente

Mensaje por Rogersukoi27 el 17/8/2013, 4:09 pm

Si se busca estar cerca de la costa de China, y ubicarse entre China y Japón, para controlar su trafico de suministro de Petróleo por mar, y vigilar los movimientos de sus 32 bases navales de China, la ISLA DE JEJU, al sur de Korea del Sur,  paraíso con una biosfera y áreas coralinas que constituyen patrimonio de la humanidad nombrada por la UNESCO,  es la posición ideal para una base naval estratégica del mundo occidental.

Con las bases de Japón y Korea del Sur, sumadas a las que posee en la Isla Guam, la Armada de E.U. tiene posiciones alejadas de las costas Chinas.
 Este movimiento de ajedrez, significa estar a la puerta de cualquiera de sus bases, y provee un Caballo de Troya entre China y Japón.

 Desde la perspectiva KOREANA, un grupo numeroso de ciudadanos que desean y aspiran a mantener el progreso y la paz en dicha isla, han presentado diferentes protestas ante el gobierno Sudkoreano, y su respuesta, es: llamen a la Naval de E.U.  y díganle que no construyan esa base en la isla.
 Según esta nota,  el contrato de la construcción de la BASE NAVAL, se le concedió a la Corporación  Samsung de Sudkorea.
 
Jeju Island Naval Base- A Threat to the South Korean Island of World Peace
| January 4, 2013

Known for its incredible biodiversity, God’s Creation and people on Jeju Island in South Korea are threatened with plans to build a military base that will most likely destroy the fragile coral reef ecosystem, contaminate food and water sources in the Gangjeong community, and harm their local economy and livelihoods.Pollution from toxic chemicals, destruction of fragile ecosystems, and a large presence of military personnel are the biggest concerns. Gangjeong, the site of the proposed base, is surrounded by a biosphere reserve and three UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to the ecological significance of the region. Big interests from corporations, foreign and domestic militaries, and politicians have high stakes in seeing this project going forward. Already construction has begun and the environmental and social damage is beginning to appear.
Father Pat Cunningham
Columbans, in particular Fr. Pat Cunningham, have been involved with this struggle for some time now- as have other Catholic orders, faith traditions, environmentalists, and peace activists through the Save Jeju Now Coalition. The coalition has been organizing the last six years to oppose the naval base construction.
Since 2011 roughly 130,000 police officers have been based on Jeju Island. The police have arrested more than 690 villagers and peace activists, imprisoned 22 people, and took indiscriminate judicial disposal on more than 480 people. Among the imprisoned, Jesuit Fr. Lee Young Chan was recently released on December 26, 2012 after 63 days in captivity for climbing on top of a cement truck. In January 2012, twenty nuns and a priest were arrested for praying for peace outside the gates of the naval construction. On December 28, 2011, 13 Catholic priests were on trial for holding a peace mass and sit-in protest. Catholics and other faith groups regularly organize prayer vigils and masses to protest the base.
The Save Jeju Island Coalition is using creative tactics such as a satirical music video in the style of Korean pop star Psy’s “Gangnam Style” to show scenes from the protest movement including a Jesuit priest, and building relationships with Robert Redford to call attention to their movement. We will continue to share news from Jeju through Fr. Pat Cunningham. He encourages everyone to visit the Save Jeju Now Coalition to learn more. Check out photos from their New Year’s celebrations focused on opposing the base:http://savejejunow.org
The rest of the article will highlight some of the vested interests in the base construction and the opposition movement’s current efforts to stop it.
Military Interests

The Jeju island is strategically located in the Strait of Korea. It is widely believed that the site will be used for the U.S. ballistic missile defense program and that the United States is pushing for the base construction to expand its military presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
Residents of the island fear that the strategic location will leave them more vulnerable to attacks from North Korea, Japan, and China. They are also concerned that the presence of thousands of military personnel on the island would change the local culture and create a greater presence of bars and prostitution, which could harm the traditional community and public health. Already the large police presence causes unease and challenges in the the community. 
Corporate Interests

South Korea contracted Samsung, the largest and most successful company in South Korea, to build the naval base. In Korea Samsung not only produces electronics but they also build roads, oil rigs, and amusement parks. Ironically, in the fall of 2012, Samsung sponsored the World Conservation Congress (WCC) on Jeju Island. The WCC is a global gathering of environmentalists committed to protecting biodiversity. The Gangjeong community was not allowed to attend the event and share about expected destruction of Jeju’s fragile marine ecosystem. Columbans joined other religious leaders, peace activists, environmentalists, and Gangjeong villagers to protest the naval base construction at the WCC.
Samsung is very influential in South Korean politics and was in fact started with government funding. They wield great influence in politics. As a result, South Korea ranks poorly among corruption rankings for democratized countries.[ii] This worsened under the outgoing President Lee Myung-bak. In 2009 he pardoned a former Samsung executive, imprisoned on financial charges, so that he could lobby for Pyeongchang to successfully obtain the Summer Olympics in 2018. He also happens to sit on the International Olympic Committee.[iii]
All eyes should watch what role Samsungs’ lobbyists play in garnering votes for the proposed $200 billion naval construction budget in the coming days and weeks ahead.
Political Atmosphere
The relationship between companies and the South Korean government have been very cozy since the dictatorship of Park Chung-hee in the 1960s when this model of starting large companies with government funding was first born.
His daughter, Park Gueng-hee was just elected president in December 2012.While public opinion’s now mostly negative view of Samsung and other big companies did prompt the presidential candidates to suggest they would make efforts to reign in big companies,[iv] it is unlikely that Ms. Park will put a stop to the base construction. Columban Father Pat Cunningham, who directs JPIC ministries in South Korea, had this take on the elections:
“On the face of it her election as the first female president seems like a milestone in a very male-dominated culture. While breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling for women could indeed be a golden opportunity for her to improve the standing of her fellow countrywomen- let’s wait and see! However, for the younger generation she embodies a throwback to the old days of her father, the notorious military ruler Park Chung-hee and the two military rulers who succeeded him.
Their regimes are dominated by stories of human rights abuses, imprisonment, torture, and in some cases, death sentences for people they saw as threats to their authority.
President elect Miss Park is known for her infamous remark of wanting to turn Jeju Island- “the island of peace” into another Hawaii. But Hawaii was so badly contaminated by a naval base that it had to import all its food from the mainland. The villagers clearly don’t want another Hawaii, but Miss Park believes that the future of the village must be sacrificed at the altar of national security interests undermining the local community and destroying the deep and sacred connection the people have with the local environment. She has never visited the village or offered any semblance of support or sympathy to the people in their herculean struggle to save their traditional way of life and preserve their natural environment.”
Currently the biggest issue for the opposition movement is putting a stop to the $200 billion earmarked for the base construction. Father Pat described some of the activities underway:

“The most pressing pre- and post-election issue is getting the $200 million budget  earmarked for the base construction in 2013 cut, or at least cut to the point of stalling the 24-hour breakneck pace of construction work. Before the election a number of activists including Fr. Mun Jong Hyen, the Mayor of Gangjeong, and a number of Jesuit Priests participated in a fast and head shaving ceremony outside the National Assembly and in Gangjeong. They are condemning the way the ruling Saenuri party (New Frontier Party- the party of Ms. Park) members of the national defense budget committee unilaterally railroaded the 2013 budget through the preliminary phase without any debate or consultation with opposition party members.

The final decision rests with the 50 members of the Budget and Balance Committee in the National Assembly, which is dominated by the Saenuri party with a 27 to 23 margin. This crucial decision that could decide the fate of the base and the future of the villagers and the coastal environment is due any day soon.  Activists and village leaders have been doing peace bows in front of the National Assembly, Seoul, since December 24thand with the final day of talks (December 29th)  having come and gone, the nervousness will continue into next week.”

Al menos, los planes de E.U. de responder al rápido poderío militar de CHINA , no esta oculto.
 Con claridad, se proponen hacer alianzas con países de  Sud-asia y en el Norte con Corea del Sur y Japòn, el objetivo es tener 6 flotas navales (6 portaaviones) en dicha zona, y evolucionar algunos armamentos, (casualmente, todos con impulsos electrónicos), que será sin duda UN TALON DE AQUILES, sino preparan contra-medidas para neutralizar armas de impulso electrónico de sus contrarios.




Military build-up in Indo-Pacific region: US “pivot” to Asia threatens war with China
By Peter Symonds
Global Research, June 06, 2012
World Socialist Web Site 6 June 2012

Region: Asia
Theme: US NATO War Agenda

  

     
 

  



The Obama administration’s “pivot” to Asia is a comprehensive military build-up throughout the Indo-Pacific region, greatly heightening the danger of war with China.
US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta announced in Singapore last weekend that by 2020 the greater part of American naval forces—including six aircraft carrier battle groups as well as a majority of the navy’s cruisers, destroyers, Littoral Combat ships and submarines—will be stationed in the Asia-Pacific.
Panetta also made clear that [size=24]the Pentagon intends to maintain its “technological edge” and ability to “rapidly project military power” through the development of “an advanced fifth-generation fighter, an enhanced Virginia-class submarine, new electronic warfare and communications capabilities and improved precision weapons.”[/size]
The US is also investing in “new refuelling tankers, a new bomber and advanced maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft” to boost the capacity of US forces “to operate over the Pacific’s vast distances.”
While Panetta denied that this vast expansion of US military forces in Asia was “some kind of challenge to China”, there is no other plausible explanation. The Pentagon’s own strategic documents, including its annual report on the Chinese military, all identify China as the US’s number one target.
In his speech, Panetta reviewed the strengthening of military ties over the past three years with virtually every Asian country—except China. Washington is surrounding China with US allies and strategically located military bases and sowing the seeds for world war.
In North East Asia, the US is refashioning its military forces with allies South Korea and Japan, and, in partnership with Japan, transforming Guam into “a strategic hub” in the Western Pacific. Washington has extended its basing arrangements with its ally, Australia, and is seeking to do the same with the Philippines and Vietnam, enhancing the ability of the US navy to block Chinese shipping of vital energy and raw materials through South East Asian waterways.
In South Asia, the Obama administration has strengthened its key strategic partnership with India, while seeking to undermine Chinese influence in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Burma and Nepal. A decade of neo-colonial occupation of Afghanistan has transformed that country, which borders China, into a key US base of operations in Central Asia.
US imperialism’s consolidation of a network of military alliances has a relentless logic of its own. It compels China to seek its own allies, heightens competition, rivalry and tensions throughout the region, and poses the danger that one of the many regional powder kegs can trigger a conflict that rapidly assumes global proportions.
There is no clearer expression of the irrationality of capitalism as an international social order than this: the world’s largest trade partnership, between the world’s two largest economies US and China, also threatens to become the world’s most dangerous military confrontation. The slide towards war is driven, not by the intentions of political leaders, but by the objective contradictions of the capitalist system: between world economy and the outmoded division of the globe into nation states, and between socialised production on a global scale and the private ownership of the means of production.
US imperialism depends on China as a vast source of cheap labour, yet China’s economic expansion threatens to challenge the imperialist world order that the US has dominated since the end of World War II. Over the past two decades, Washington has recklessly plunged into one war after another in the Middle East, the Balkans and Central Asia in a bid to offset its historic economic decline. Obama’s “pivot” to Asia has dramatically raised the stakes, by making clear that the US considers its main target to be a nuclear-armed power, China.
The working class in Asia, America and around the world confronts the danger of war amid a relentless assault on its living standards and social position. The capitalist classes have exploited the globalised character of production to depress living standards in both the advanced and developing countries. Since the eruption of the global financial crisis in 2008, these processes have accelerated markedly. Mass unemployment in Europe and the United States is being translated in China into falling demand for exports, a slowing economy and downward pressure on pay, conditions and jobs.
The international working class is the only social force on the face of the planet that can abolish the evils of war, mass unemployment and social misery. Chinese and American workers, along with their class brothers and sisters internationally, share a common class interest in abolishing the outmoded and anarchic capitalist system that serves the profit requirements of the wealthy few at the expense of the vast majority of humanity.
The working class is the bearer of new and higher productive relations—a planned socialist world economy. Under capitalism, globalised production only results in the never-ending drive for international competitiveness by rival capitalist nation-states, the relentless destruction of jobs and living standards in every country, and the drive to war. Placed under public ownership and the democratic control of the working class, the planned use of the same productive forces could provide a secure future and a decent standard of living for the whole of mankind.
That is the perspective of socialist internationalism for which the International Committee of the Fourth International and its sections in every country fight.
