Tensions rising in the Pacific

I’ve written on this blog about how I see the big players lining up for the next World War, and this latest news story is more posturing, or political theater, in order for us to keep China in our minds as a nemesis. Take for example this article the AFP just released a little while ago. Here are a few key ideas that caught my attention:

A car carrying the Japanese ambassador to China was targeted in Beijing on Monday by a man who ripped off the vehicle’s Japanese flag, a foreign ministry official said. The ambassador […] was not hurt in the attack.

I had to stop right there…there was (to me) a logical inconsistency. A man stops and rips off a flag from a car. That’s it!? The story goes on to say that the ambassador wasn’t injured in the attack? This doesn’t seem like an attack, more like an act of vandalism.
The words that are used to paint a picture can very easily sway public opinion without their knowledge. I think this is another case of media manipulation in order to control the way we think about our international neighbors to further a hegemonic agenda. Keep an eye on the news in the near future to demonize China and Russia. These two governments are increasingly at odds with the US global agenda and could quickly become more involved with the US government’s global escapades…
