Chinese navy flexes muscle in South China Sea
Since both China and Russia have both stated publically that any military action taken against Iran would be considered action against them, it is very little wonder we are seeing the demonization of China unfold.
The South China Sea dispute has been growing more intense lately, and China has allegedly fired on a Vietnamese fishing vessel, in addition to the increase in military drills in the area.
Just recently we were pointing the finger at China for all of the cyber attacks going on lately, and lamenting their handling of North Korea.
We are at dangerous times, with another World War right around the corner. Pay no attention to the MSM, as they’ve been proven to lie in the past and the present to manipulate your perception of current events.

Chinese navy flexes muscle in South China Sea
Vietnamese Foreign Ministry said in a statement on the 25th, the fishing vessel fishing in the disputed waters in the Xisha Islands in the 20th in the country by Chinese ships “shooting”, “strong protest and demanded compensation. The statement said the fire led to the Vietnamese fishing fire.

Upon seeing the Chinese ships stopped chasing.
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…
It is beginning to look like there are going to be multiple fronts on the war path the US seems to be on. Israel is reportedly preparing for a war on multiple fronts, and it seems the US is preparing in the same manner by sending warships to the Asia-Pacific.
There has been an ongoing dispute with China (and other Asian countries) regarding the ownership of the South China Sea, and the tensions keep growing while the US seems to add more fuel to the fire, even going so far as to send decommissioned warships that direction.
What would cause the US government to act this way? Wouldn’t we want good relationships with China considering the potential economic ramifications alone of a major dispute? The answer, in my opinion is here:
That’s because the area may hold oil riches that rival Saudi Arabia’s, a prospect that is stoking tensions in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes
I still think there is more behind the issue than oil or staggering profits from shipping lane control. China and Russia have been the most vocal opponents of sanctions on Iran. Both Russia and China also have strategic interests in the stability of the Iranian leadership and don’t want to have their national or economic interests upset. I think the US is stoking the flames in preparation for what is coming (war with Iran); although for the life of me I can’t figure out why!
I do know that the Chinese leadership is seeing what is coming and it looks like they are enabling North Korea more than in the past. Could this be any part of the situation? I hope not. I do know that when the conflicts begin, watch the South Pacific again as there will be action on that end also. So far, much of this has stayed under the radar, but keep an eye on the news coming out of this part of the world; I really think we’ll see another combat theater over there.
I really think the US needs to tread very carefully here…can we really afford all of the costs of a conflict (of any size) with China?

There were multiple theaters in WW2, and the next world war will be no exception. It seems as if the United States knows this too and is preparing another area of the globe to strike from.
I’ve been watching with interest how China has been reacting to the issue of Iranian sanctions, or the issue in Syria. So far, they have kept quiet, however that doesn’t imply agreement or complicity.
China is now making more and more news lately. The tensions rising regarding the South China Sea have been going on for quite a while and China (from what I’ve seen) has been trying to use diplomacy to settle disputes. It seems the United States is trying to provoke China recently and the relationship between the two is growing colder day by day.
“The US is helping the Philippines to modernise [sic] and improve its military capability in the face of a growing confrontation with China over supremacy in the South China Sea.”
Just as in Syria today, we are using
allies proxies to do our bidding in the South China Sea. It looks to me as if the major players are setting up their pieces for a much larger “conflict” than we’ve seen in Afghanistan, Iraq, or Libya.
The US has transferred to its Pacific ally two decommissioned coastguard ships. The first, the Gregorio del Pilar, arrived August 2011 and replaced a second world war vessel as the Philippine navy’s biggest and newest ship. The second is expected to arrive this year.
It’s not just the South China sea topic where we should tread carefully. Hillary Clinton kicked off her tour of Africa recently with (thinly) veiled insults directed at China. I think it is a mistake to provoke China this way. Not only is their economy doing much better than ours, but they could very easily kill or severely cripple our economy quickly.
Don’t think China can’t see the writing on the wall concerning the middle east. China will be looking out for itself, and any more military conflicts could cause China to enter the scene and that could be a very big problem for the U.S. Chinese warships were reported to have been moving through the Suez Canal, so we can surmise they are trying to maneuver for what looks inevitable.
I think we are at a tipping point in our history; not just the U.S., but for the entire globe. Think of the implications of another world war. This one probably won’t last as long, but could be more tragic than the previous wars combined. We are now facing a possible thermonuclear war, which could be the worst thing mankind has ever seen! For what!? Oil can’t be the reason, can it? World domination doesn’t make sense either. There will be drastic depopulation going on with a thermonuclear war so there won’t be much to dominate?
I can’t think of any other reason…
I predicted a little while ago that tensions with China would get worse and it seems they are. Hillary Clinton recently took a passive-aggressive stab at China when she was speaking in Africa last week. China took offense to her comments and retorted that “her trip was part of a hidden agenda.”
We’ve seen Chinese warships in the Suez canal recently also, which is very troubling as we all know that trouble is brewing in the area. I would certainly not like to see China engaged with the U.S. in the middle east conflict, but I think that is where all of this demonization and antagonizing of China is heading.
So we have the off handed comments by Hillary Clinton, and ongoing provocation by the U.S. in the South China Sea. I really think the U.S. needs to pay closer attention to what they can really do with a failing economy and infrastructure that is falling apart. I’m afraid the time for that has passed, and all we can do now is pay attention and hold on…it’s gonna get bumpy!
