China has been in a trade war with the west since Nixon and Carter. It's about time we are waking up to this menace. Thanks and kudos to Donald Trump.

Top officials and intellectuals in China are “awed’ by President Donald Trump’s “skill as a strategist and tactician,” according to co-founder and director of the European Council on Foreign Relations Mark Leonard.

Writing in the Financial Times, Leonard reports that on a recent trip to China many of those he spoke to said “that Mr Trump is the US first president for more than 40 years to bash China on three fronts simultaneously: trade, military and ideology.”

The Chinese see Trump as rejecting the idea that U.S. leaders should be managing the relative decline of the U.S.

U.S. Investigating AT&T and Verizon Over Wireless Collusion Claim

esides Wednesday’s live-fire naval drill in the Taiwan Strait, the PLA has been flying fighter jets and bombers close to the self-ruled island - possible signs of a coordinated battle plan, experts say

Recent patrols by China’s air force in and around Taiwan appear to be part of a coordinated strike plan across different branches of Chinese military that will encompass the entire area - possibly as preparation for military conflict with the self-ruled island, experts say.

The air force conducted several “island encirclement” patrols in and around Taiwan in recent days, the People’s Liberation Army said on Thursday - one day after the mainland’s navy carried out a live-fire drill in the Taiwan Strait.

Song Zhongping, a former member of the PLA’s Second Artillery Corps, said that although the live-fire drill appeared smaller than expected, that was probably because it was part of a wider mission.

“It seems like the exercise near Fujian was relatively small, but actually, there were several joint operational drills happening in different areas around Taiwan at the same time [on Wednesday],” he said.

“The comprehensive, joint operational drills suggest the PLA is not just targeting one area, but the whole region.”

Navy Intel Officer Warns of Future China Conflict

Fanell

HONOLULU—China’s ruling Communist Party is “rejuvenating” and preparing for a military conflict in Asia, the outgoing intelligence chief of the Navy’s Pacific Fleet is warning.

“The strategic trend lines indicate the Communist Party of China is not only ‘rejuvenating’ itself for internal stability purposes, but has been and continues to prepare to use military force,” Navy Capt. James E. Fanell said on Saturday during his retirement speech Saturday at Pearl Harbor.

China’s Secret Strategy Exposed

China launched a secret 100-year modernization program that deceived successive U.S. administrations into unknowingly promoting Beijing’s strategy of replacing the U.S.-led world order with a Chinese communist-dominated economic and political system, according to a new book by a longtime Pentagon China specialist.

We can blame US policy that has, since WWII kept Japan from rearming themselves by guaranteeing their protection.  Japan's militaristic threat is just as worrisome now, as in 1930, and that is what MacArthur understood.  By our stupid policies towards an aggressive China, we are responsible for a coming blood bath - and it will NOT be Japan that takes the worse of it in the end, it will be the Chinese, whose policies are as stupid as ours!

We knew this was coming. Thanks to the USA not listening to Gen MacArthur!
Many today do not know this, but the Japanese Constitution was mainly written by Gen MacArthur and staff...The most important reform carried out by the American occupation was the establishment of a new constitution to replace the 1889 Meiji Constitution. In early 1946, the Japanese government submitted a draft for a new constitution to the General Headquarters, but it was rejected for being too conservative. MacArthur ordered his young staff to draft their own version in one week. The document, submitted to the Japanese government on February 13, 1946, protected the civil liberties MacArthur had introduced and preserved the emperor, though he was stripped of power. Article 9 forbade the Japanese ever to wage war again. This establishment of a Japanese war department was presented to the General by the prime minister, who said, "we can never again suffer Hiroshima and Nagasaki"--- to which MacArthur said that he would do everything possible to fulfill that wish.....  Today we are allowing this militarization to happen again and WAR in Asia will be the result.

General Douglas MacArthur warned us:  "
Men since the beginning of time have sought peace. Various methods through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations. From the very start workable methods were found in so far as individual citizens were concerned, but the mechanics of an instrumentality of larger international scope have never been successful. Military alliances, balances of power, Leagues of Nations, all in turn failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter  destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative. We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and more equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door."

Is World War Three about to start... by accident? Max Hastings asks whether rising tensions between China and Japan could boil over

How the forces measure up

The cost and the threat of nuclear escalation is so horrendous that reason argues that nothing remotely resembling the 20th century's vast global clashes can ever happen again.

I will make a prediction... China's STUPID aggression in Asia will lead to a re-armed Japan which will get the bomb and threaten China's very existence.... And Putan's STUPIDITY will cause the re-arming of EUROPE UNDER GERMANY, which will lead to the formation of a giant BEASTLY EU, called the Kingdom of the North in the Bible....  It is not just American leaders who are dumber than dirt!

Here are articles pointing toward this....


Chinese military lashes out at Japanese defense documents

BEIJING, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Chinese military on Friday accused Japan of using the pretext of safeguarding its own national security and regional peace for military expansion.

The Japanese government approved its first national security strategy on Tuesday. Based on it, new defense program guidelines and a mid-term defense buildup plan were also adopted.

"China is firmly opposed to Japan's relevant actions," said Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng in a statement.

He said the three documents aimed at playing up the "China's military threat", increasing regional tensions and using the pretext of safeguarding Japan's own national security and regional peace for its military expansion.

On the one hand, Japan claimed that it is a peace-loving country, and that it adheres to a defensive defense policy and will not be a military power. On the other hand, Japan is peddling the so-called "proactive pacifism", said Geng.

In its new defense program guidelines, Japan gave up the policy of building of a moderate self-defense force and proposed to revise the "Three Principles on Arms Exports".

Japan also planned to purchase advanced armament like F-35 stealth fighters, surveillance drone fleet and Aegis destroyers and tried to form a fast-response-amphibious unit, said Geng.

Where is Japan's military and security policy going? Geng questioned, adding that it causes great concerns from Japan's Asian neighbors and international society.

On the one hand, Japan claimed that it respects freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law, but on the other hand, it repeatedly denied its history of aggression during the Second World War, challenged the post-war international order and hurt the feeling of the people of the war-victim countries, he said.

As a nation that can not reflect on its history, what qualification does Japan have to speak about freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law? How can the country make contributions to the world peace? Geng said.

Japan has on the one hand claimed to strengthen international coordination, safeguard peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, and make efforts to ensure security and prosperity of the international community, but on the other hand it sticked to the Cold War mentality and beefed up military alliance with relevant countries, he said.

Japan also tried to woo other countries to create regional confrontation and roil the regional situation, he said, noting that Japan's actions run counter to the trend of the times featuring peaceful development and win-win cooperation, said the spokesman.

"We urged Japan to make deep introspection on its history, honor its commitment to peaceful development, and try to improve its relations with Asian neighbors with concrete actions, so as to play a constructive role in safeguarding regional peace and stability," Geng said.
