Well, in 2020 Trump decided to go to a “hot” war with China. he sent 7 – 8 assault battle carrier groups to the South China Sea, and an undisclosed number of submarines. I’ve discussed this issue before HERE. And we now know that no “disclosed” fighting actually occurred. The flotilla steamed back to the United States “empty handed”, and the Admiral and his staff were fired immediately when they arrived back in Washington DC.
No word or information is provided as to why the Admiral(s) refused to engaged the Chinese, or attempt the take-over of some “minor” outlying islands. We all, in the Western readership” are all oblivious to it. But the fact is that something actually “spooked” the Naval brass (leadership) in charge of the operation. What was it?
We will never know.
But what we do know is that China is decades ahead of the West in certain technologies such as directed energy weapons and electronic suppression systems. Indeed it would be a sorry day for an entire submarine with 100 – 200 crew and all sorts of multi-million dollar munitions to sink softly to the bottom of the South China Sea when nothing works. It would be a scene out of the Foundation Trilogy.
China will soon confirm that its population has dropped for the first time since it started recording the figure in 1949, the Financial Times reports. The new Chinese census was completed last year and its release was expected this month but has been mysteriously delayed. The headline figure will reportedly show that the nation’s population has declined below the 1.4 billion mark recorded two years ago, even though Beijing has relaxed most of its notoriously strict family-planning policies. Huang Wenzheng, a fellow at Beijing think tank the Center for China and Globalization, said the census release will be “handled very carefully” because it could have “a huge impact on how the Chinese people see their country and how various government departments work.” He added: “The pace and scale of China’s demographic crisis are faster and bigger than we imagined… That could have a disastrous impact on the country.”
A senior Australian security official warned staff members that the country should brace for the “curse of war” as tensions grow with China, causing other government officials to be wary of such strong language.
“In a world of perpetual tension and dread, the drums of war beat—sometimes faintly and distantly, and at other times more loudly and ever closer,” Department of Home Affairs Secretary Mike Pezzullo said in a message to staff that was shared with Australian media on Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.
“Today, as free nations again hear the beating drums and watch worryingly the militarisation of issues that we had, until recent years, thought unlikely to be catalysts for war, let us continue to search unceasingly for the chance for peace while bracing again, yet again, for the curse of war,” Pezzullo added.
Russia’s Aerospace Force successfully test-fired a new anti-ballistic missile (ABM) that can reach speeds in excess of three km/s or more than four times the speed of a bullet fired from the current version of a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
“The combat team of the Aerospace Force’s air and anti-ballistic missile defense troops conducted another successful test-launch of a new missile of the Russian anti-ballistic missile defense system at the Sary-Shagan proving ground (the Republic of Kazakhstan),” the Russian Ministry of Defense ministry said in a statement, according to a report from Tass. The ABM system was developed …
An April 8 document titled “Statistical Table of Adverse Reactions of COVID-19 Vaccines” issued by Laishui County’s community health center in Baoding City in northern China’s Hebei province shows that local people injected with Chinese-made vaccines have experienced various adverse reactions, such as rashes, fever, nausea, diarrhea, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.
Another document issued by the office of Baoding Municipal Leadership Team for Response to the Epidemic on March 3 recorded a case of a local resident who was quarantined by the authorities for 47 days after he was fully vaccinated.
According to the document, Sui, a resident in Lianchi District of Baoding City had received two doses of a Chinese-made vaccine in December 2020. Afterwards, he traveled to Germany in January. When he returned to Baoding on Jan.11, 2021, he was put under centralized quarantine.
Afghanistan is strategic to China’s economic and military expansion in the Middle East, Eurasia.
China is considering sending troops to Afghanistan after the planned U.S. military withdrawal in coming month. “China may send peacekeeping force to Afghanistan after US troops leave,” the Hong Kong daily South China Morning Post reported Friday, citing senior Chinese national security experts.
The report comes after this week’s announcement by President Joe Biden to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan. According to the plan, 2,500 U.S. servicemen and a further 7,000 allied NATO troops will leave the country by September 11, 2021.
Following the Biden White House announcement, China raised the alarm about the security situation in the Taliban-ridden country close to its western borders. On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian warned that “terrorist forces” may take over Afghanistan once the U.S. pulls out.
Forget about China, or Russia, being an alleged threat. They are in actual fact an “opportunity” for NATO and U.S. imperialism.
In an unguarded moment, NATO’s secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg let the cat out of the bag when he described the rise of China as both a challenge and “an opportunity”. What he was admitting unintentionally is that a confrontational policy toward China gives the military alliance some badly needed new purpose.
Stoltenberg was giving an exclusive interview to Deutsche Welle to mark the first ministerial NATO summit attended by the Biden administration. The two-day summit held on March 23-24 at NATO headquarters in Brussels involved in-person participation of U.S. secretary of state Antony Blinken as well as other foreign ministers of the 30-nation military alliance.
Josh Sigurdson reports on the rise of the technocratic Chinese style cashless society as vaccine passports are mandated worldwide and the US dollar continues to collapse. Not only will the US dollar be replaced by the Chinese Yuan, but the technocratic system of China which the US government helped build will be implemented worldwide. From Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Trilateral Commission to the creation of a social credit system that stopped people from traveling in China many years ago, all of these ideas are now being pushed forward on a global scale today. Vaccine passports will be tied to a social credit score and have the same essential effect of social credit in China, the world’s most totalitarian state.
With the US and Japan all but officially teaming up in trying to encircle China in the Pacific, Beijing has made the most significant military display yet, sending an aircraft carrier group between Japanese islands and Taiwan.
On Monday morning, China announced it sent an aircraft carrier group through a location known as the Miyako Strait, an island chain which bridges the gap between the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea. The area largely consists of Japanese waters and has several strategic islands such as Okinawa, the disputed territory of the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands, and bridging down to Taiwan itself. As Beijing sent the Liaoning steaming through this location, Tokyo sent a destroyer to monitor it. The Global Times later posted a triumphant article stating that China intends to do more of these exercises, and that its naval capabilities will only continue to grow.
