“….. Here is the prediction: China will turn North Korea loose soon. The alliance will dissolve, or become stale. There will be political upheaval in China. Not a coup and not a revolution. Within the inner circles of that which you call Chinese politics, there will be a re-evaluation of goals and monetary policy. Eventually, you will see a break with North Korea, allowing still another dictator to fall and unification to occur with the south. ….”

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Johannes Nugroho: Why Is Malaysia Pushing for Closer ASEAN Defense Ties?

Jakarta Globe, Johannes Nugroho, Mar 10, 2015

Ahead of the 9th ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting (ADMM) in Langkawi, Malaysia next weekend, Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammudin Hussein said last month that as chair, his country would push for the formation of an ASEAN peacekeeping force. The initiative, though not new, represents a step further in Malaysia’s attitude towards greater integration for ASEAN.

The peacekeeping force, if indeed established, will officially be designated for humanitarian operations in conflict zones and natural disaster sites. However, it will also be the first regional force through which member nations can work together in a defense framework. If successful, it has the potential to transform the nature of ASEAN member states’ engagement vis-à-vis China.

Malaysia’s sponsorship of the scheme during its chairmanship is important as, traditionally, Kuala Lumpur has preferred greater economic cooperation to defense with its ASEAN partners. In the past, Malaysia was also opposed to any ASEAN policy that could be interpreted as a “class action” against Chinese interests. Its caution was perhaps in line with the views of experts on South China Sea such as the Indonesian former top diplomat and academic Hasjim Djalal, who argued that the formation of an “ASEAN Unity” against China could be dangerously counterproductive.

So Malaysia’s past strategy was to deepen trade and economic ties with Beijing, thus increasing the stakes involved should a conflict develop. However, despite being China’s biggest trading partner within ASEAN, Malaysia was not immune to Beijing’s barrage of criticisms and rebukes after the MH370 incident. Clearly for Kuala Lumpur, the strategy was no longer working.

While abandoning lucrative trade with China would be a folly, Malaysia arguably now looks to the multilateral framework of ASEAN with new hopes. A regional peacekeeping force is far from being a defense pact like NATO but it will send out an unmistakable signal to Beijing that a united ASEAN response on security matters is plausible.

ASEAN countries with recent experiences of Chinese intransigence, such as Vietnam and the Philippines, will definitely welcome a more coherent ASEAN group response and the formation of a peacekeeping force. It is the other member states that will need to be convinced of the need of such a force.

Out of the seven remaining members of ASEAN, Indonesia’s acquiescence in the peacekeeping force will no doubt be crucial. As a founding member, as well as being the largest Southeast Asian economy, Indonesia’s participation, or lack of it, could either make or break the scheme.

Strategically, a multilateral security blanket like an ASEAN peacekeeping force coincides with Indonesia’s own interests. As a country prone to natural disasters, Indonesia could expect speedy relief aid from such a force. While, as the 2004 Aceh tsunami showed, the country can still rely upon humanitarian assistance from friendly neighbors like India and Australia, an ASEAN disaster relief task force in such a scenario makes more sense.

President Joko Widodo’s doctrine of maritime fulcrum could also be put into effect in tandem with such a regional force. Diplomatically, the country’s participation in the force may minimize concerns over excessive nationalism in Indonesia’s approach to border infringement. Indeed, the safety of the country’s maritime territory could be better served by cooperating with the regional force over issues such as illegal fishing. A general code of conduct over illegal fishing in ASEAN waters, for example, administered with the help of the regional force, could also keep skirmishes over the impounding of vessels between member states to a minimum.

However, despite the possible benefits, it remains to be seen whether Jakarta will support the idea of an ASEAN peacekeeping force. There are at least two indicators which may work against it.

First, since Jokowi took office last year, his foreign policy has been inward-looking. The current nationalist tone of Indonesia’s relations with the world may preclude such a regionalist move.

Second, there are signs that the current government will increase Indonesia’s economic engagement with China. With major infrastructure projects envisaged in the last election campaign, Beijing’s financial leverage may simply be too hard to resist. In the event of sizeable Chinese investments pouring into Indonesia, Jakarta may find its ability to support closer ASEAN defense ties compromised.

Malaysia’s championing of an ASEAN peacekeeping force is a marked departure from its previous policy on ASEAN cooperation. The strength of its determination to see it through, however, will be tested in the forthcoming ADMM. It will be interesting to see if Malaysia’s change of heart in its approach to ASEAN will be enough to persuade others to follow suit.
