Top Israeli Officials Agree With Celente’s Trends Journal ! Attacking Iran is The Stupidest Idea!

Why is genocidal madman Netanyahu screaming for war with Iran? It is all about the global petrodollar hegemony!

  • The people in power/control in Zionist ‘666’ Israel are Illuminists. They want to execute their plan for a Satanic World War 3.

    Top Israeli Officials Agree With Celente’s Trends Journal ! 
    By Gerald Celente! via
    KINGSTON, NY, 10 MAY 2012 — Trend forecaster Gerald Celente, writing in the Spring Trends Journal, was virtually alone in his assessment of an Israeli/United States military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities as an act of folly that would have catastrophic consequences.

    Now, weeks after his warning ­ which noted the irrationality of Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak’s determination to strike Iran ­ his conclusions are being echoed by some of Israel’s most prominent public figures: Bombing Iran is “the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Anyone attacking Iran needs to understand that it could start a regional war which will include missile fire from Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon.” Former Mossad director Meir Dagan:

    “They [the Netanyahu administration] talk too much, they talk too loud. They are creating an atmosphere and a momentum that may go out of their control. There is no reason at this time … to initiate an Israeli military strike.” Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
    Iranian leadership is composed of “very rational people” who will not decide to build nuclear weapons. General Benny Gantz, current Israeli Army Chief of Staff

    “I don’t believe in a leadership that makes decisions based on messianic feelings . . . one of the results of an Israeli attack on Iran could be a dramatic acceleration of the Iranian nuclear program.” Yuval Diskin, former chief of the Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency Despite the public misgivings of these current and former highly placed Israeli authorities ­ who call into question the judgment, honesty, and even the sanity of Israeli leaders ­ the United States and its leaders remain united in their unwavering and unquestioning support.

    Celente contends that should the US join Israel in an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, not only will it find itself embroiled in yet another losing war, but this time it will be a war without borders … World War III.

    Moreover, he asks, “In light of the accusations and threats made by American leaders who ardently insist that ‘all options are on the table’ regarding bombing Iran, why are there no highly placed American authorities castigating America’s war hawks for being messianic, stupid and deranged?”

    Trends in the Making? Can these ominous warnings by prominent Israelis lead to a shift in Israeli policy? If so, would it mitigate America’s otherwise unconditional support for Israel? Can anything impede the march to war with Iran, or is war inevitable? What role will the US Presidential elections play in this critical unfolding scenario?

What is all the BS about Iran being a nuclear threat? It is pure propaganda and outright lies by the Zionists!

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

The 2 Billion Dollar Loss By JP Morgan Is Just A Preview Of The Coming Collapse Of The Derivatives Market !

  • The Illuminist plan is for a global economic, financial and monetary collapse. Financial derivatives are the financial weapon of mass destruction of choice for this coming take down! The financial derivatives market is anywhere between US$700T – US$1,500T! There is no way this massive financial black hole can be plugged. Massive creation of money out of thin air to bail out the banksters’ derivatives exposure will result in a global currency crisis! Hyperinflation!!!

    The 2 Billion Dollar Loss By JP Morgan Is Just A Preview Of The Coming Collapse Of The Derivatives Market! 
    When news broke of a 2 billion dollar trading loss by JP Morgan, much of the financial world was absolutely stunned.  But the truth is that this is just the beginning.  This is just a very small preview of what is going to happen when we see the collapse of the worldwide derivatives market.  When most Americans think of Wall Street, they think of a bunch of stuffy bankers trading stocks and bonds.  But over the past couple of decades it has evolved into much more than that. 

    Today, Wall Street is the biggest casino in the entire world.  When the “too big to fail” banks make good bets, they can make a lot of money.  When they make bad bets, they can lose a lot of money, and that is exactly what just happened to JP Morgan.  Their Chief Investment Office made a series of trades which turned out horribly, and it resulted in a loss of over 2 billion dollars over the past 40 days.  But 2 billion dollars is small potatoes compared to the vast size of the global derivatives market.  It has been estimated that the the notional value of all the derivatives in the world is somewhere between 600 trillion dollars and 1.5 quadrillion dollars.  Nobody really knows the real amount, but when this derivatives bubble finally bursts there is not going to be nearly enough money on the entire planet to fix things.

    Sadly, a lot of mainstream news reports are not even using the word “derivatives” when they discuss what just happened at JP Morgan.  This morning I listened carefully as one reporter described the 2 billion dollar loss as simply a “bad bet”.

    And perhaps that is easier for the American people to understand.  JP Morgan made a series of really bad bets and during a conference call last night CEO Jamie Dimon admitted that the strategy was “flawed, complex, poorly reviewed, poorly executed and poorly monitored”. The funny thing is that JP Morgan is considered to be much more “risk averse” than most other major Wall Street financial institutions are. So if this kind of stuff is happening at JP Morgan, then what in the world is going on at some of these other places?

    That is a really good question.
    For those interested in the technical details of the 2 billion dollar loss, an article posted on CNBC described exactly how this loss happened….

JPMorgan Chase Loses Big in Derivatives Gamble!

This is what is coming up for the world economy!

  • This might just be the start of the global derivatives collapse. JP Morgan has anywhere between US$90T-US$110T of derivatives exposure. Jim Willie seems to think that it may be alot higher ie. US$800T. He is of the opinion that JP Morgan’s loss is closer to US$18B and not US$2B. Anyway, when US$90T-110T of derivatives collapse, it will bring down the global economy and the financial system. Global GDP is only about US$60-65T. My guestimate is that the collapse will start around Aug-Oct 2012. But what do I know?

    JPMorgan Chase loses big in derivatives gamble! 
    by Reuters /AP, via
    The biggest bank in the US has squandered $2 billion (1.54 billion euros) in an investment aimed at profiting from the eurozone debt crisis. The mistaken gamble has thrust the regulation question back into the spotlight.

    The huge loss had emerged over the past six weeks in an investment portfolio originally designed to help the bank control financial market risks, JPMorgan Chase announced late on Thursday.

    Admitting that there were “many errors, sloppiness and bad judgment” involved in managing the portfolio, JPMorgan’s Chief Executive Jamie Dimon told a hastily scheduled news conference that the investment “proved to be riskier, more volatile and less effective as an economic hedge than we thought.”

    “We will admit it, we will learn from it, we will fix it, and we will move on,” Dimon said, adding that the bank would seek to unload the portfolio in a “responsible manner” to limit damage to its shareholders.

    However, analysts told the AP news agency they were skeptical that the investment had been designed to protect against financial market risks, and that the bank appeared to have been betting for its own profit.

    A case of casino capitalism
    According to an article in the Wall Street Journal last month, JP Morgan was heavily invested in an index of so-called credit default swaps (CDS), which are products to ensure against default by debt issuers.

    In addition, Bloomberg News reported in April, that a single JPMorgan trader in London, known in the bond market as ‘the London whale’ was moving prices through exceptionally large trades. Chief Executive Jamie Dimon admitted that the loss was “somewhat related” to that story.

    Presumably in connection with the Greek debt swap completed in April, the CDS index had lost value, forcing JPMorgan to sell its investments at a loss. “These instruments are not regularly and efficiently priced, and a company can wake up one day, and find out they’re in a terrific hole,” Michael Greenberger, a professor at University of Maryland, told AP news agency.

    The announcement of the loss has led to mounting calls for tougher regulation to monitor banks’ trading activities. “The enormous loss is just the latest evidence that what banks call ‘hedges’ are often risky bets that so-called ‘too big to fail’ banks have no business making,” US Democratic Senator Carl Levin said Thursday.

    JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is one of the staunchest critics of tighter US trading rules which come into force in July 2014, and which would have made this loss “less likely,” as Michael Greenberger told AP. The bank’s shares fell 6.7 percent in after-hours trade, pulling fellow banks down with it.

US Fears Israeli Attack on Iran at ‘Any Moment’!

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • All the talk about an out of control, independent, rogue … Zionist Israel attacking Iran are just a charade. The idea that Zionist ‘666’ Israel will attack Iran without consulting and informing America and getting the approval of the Anglo-American western power is nonsense. It is political theatre to set up the coming Satanic World War 3 – Greater Middle East War.
  • The Illuminists want to use Zionist ‘666’ Israel for this role and in the process destroy this nation. If US and NATO were to get directly involve in the attack on Iran, Russia and China will engage immediately. Ie. Nuclear WW3! By employing Zionist Israel independently, the major forces will fight the war via their proxies ie. Zionist ‘666’ Israel vs Muslim World.
  • Keep in mind that Russia and China will in all likelihood crash the USD to take down America. Once the USD collapses, America’s military might will largely be curtailed. There will be too much problem on American soil for America to continue its wars. It is easier for Russia and China to attack America using a USD collapse than an all out nuclear war!

    US fears Israeli attack on Iran at ‘any moment’! 
    The State of Israel may launch a military strike on the Islamic Republic of Iran any time now, reports Israeli television network Channel 10 News.

    Channel 10, a decade-old broadcasting network with international distribution, reports that authorities in the United States are rushing this week to discuss an impending Israeli attack on Iran. The reports have developed in recent days following news that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has formed an alliance with Shaul Mofaz, the leader of the nation’s largest opposition party.

    Speaking of the deal between the two, PM Netanyahu has said the newfangled alliance will stabilize the country’s government. Reporting from Jerusalem, the UK’s Independent adds that the relationship installs “a commanding mandate” for Netanhau, “should he choose to strike against Iran.”

    In the United States, many have feared that it would only be a matter of time before such a strike occurred. Only now, however, are top US officials reportedly trying to find a way to prevent an immediate attack. Israel National News reports that the strike could be carried out at “any given moment.”

    Channel 10 adds in their report that undisclosed sources with ties to the US government say authorities in Washington, DC fear that the Netanyahu/Mofaz alliance brings together two influential party leaders that would both favor an attack on Iran. Speaking together on Tuesday this week, both men said they have much common ground between them when it comes to issues that include Iran. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is also reported to be in favor of a strike on Iran more likely sooner than later. With an attack seeming imminent, US officials are reportedly scurrying to strike a deal that will prevent a war from breaking out in the coming weeks.

    Earlier this year, the plans for the US/Israeli joint missile exercise were pushed back, in turn causing much speculation over if and how both nations would cooperate with one another if an attack was waged on Iran.In February, Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lieutenant General Ronald Burgess told reporters that, if a war erupted, it was most likely to be initiated by Israel.

    “Iran could also attempt to employ terrorist surrogates worldwide. However, the agency assesses Iran is unlikely to initiate or intentionally provoke a conflict,” Burgess said.

    Weeks earlier, it was reported at a US Defense Department briefing at the Pentagon outside of Washington, DC that authorities were readying the deployment of a massive US Navy “mother ship,” the USS Ponce, towards Iran’s Strait of Hormuz. When RT covered the news when it first developed, it was reported that the ship could be sent overseas as early as May 2012.

    Earlier this week, US Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) told lawmakers on Capitol Hill that he rejects the notion of continuing US support to Israel through military aid, saying that doing so “will lead to war.”

Professor Juan Cole: Why India is Ignoring U.S. Pressure And Continuing To Trade with Iran!

Iran war to trigger World War 3?

  • The western Illuminati is losing their grip on the petrodollar and the global monetary hegemony. Apparently, an alternative to the SWIFT banking network is in the works by an alliance of Eastern countries and Russia! It is to replace the USD as international trade settlement currency and side step any actions by America to use the SWIFT system as a weapon of economic war.

    Why India is Ignoring U.S. Pressure and Continuing to Trade with Iran! 
    By Juan Cole,
    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in India on Monday that New Delhi can reduce its oil imports from Iran further, pressuring that country to fall in line with unilateral US sanctions and Washington’s virtual blockade on the sale of Iranian petroleum. India, however, pushed back, saying it would maintain its trade ties with Iran. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh offered an offset to his disappointing message to Clinton, however, pledging that he would open up ownership of retail businesses to foreign firms (at the moment retailers have to be 51% Indian-owned). US retail corporations are eager to get into the Indian market. I apologize for citing the tabloid Daily Mail here, but actually its story is much better and more thorough than most American outlets, who don’t mention that Singh told the Secretary of State “no” on Iran. The USA Today actually spoke about Iran’s “nuclear arms program” (which Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says does not exist).

    Also yesterday, a major Iranian trade delegation was in India, seeking to boost Iranian imports from India to $6 billion a year. Some Indian firms are afraid, but many see a rare opportunity here to expand their exports to Iran, filling the vacuum created by the increasing US and European Union trade boycott with that country. Those that are oriented in their trade to domestic markets or the rest of Asia might be especially bold in this regard.

    Indian state-owned insurers are also stepping up to help insure the Iran-India oil shipping in the face of reluctance on the part of Western insurers.
    So as to avoid having to use the international banking system, which the US Departments of State and the Treasury are bullying into declining to handle Iranian oil sales, Iran will accept rupees for much of its oil exports, and then recycle them back into India to purchase imports. The two are talking about trade in “agro and allied products, pharmaceuticals, engineering, shipping, banking, petroleum products polymer, textile, as well as e-commerce.”

    Biased Western news outlets keep trumpeting that Iranian exports have fallen, presumably to shore up support for the unlikely idea that the US can unilaterally wish extra millions of oil onto world markets. Few bother to mention that they have fallen in the first two quarters of 2012 primarily because of an Iranian dispute with China over payment terms, delaying Chinese imports. But that dispute has been resolved. China’s oil imports are expected to rise 5% this year, and China will be back to importing a lot of Iranian petroleum soon. The Chinese are also about to deliver a new supertanker to Iran, the first of 12, which will increase Iran’s delivery fleet. And, Iran will accept Renminbi in payment for oil imported by China.

    Alok Bansal has an excellent overview of Iran’s importance to India, and explains why Clinton’s pressure on PM Singh will almost certainly largely fail.

    1. Iran is India’s gateway to Afghanistan, Central Asia, the Caspian Basin and the Caucausus since it is otherwise geographically blocked from these areas by Pakistan and China, its longstanding rivals. Some of these regions are resource rich, some are potential markets for Indian goods, and some are geostrategically important to India, a rising Asian power.

    2. India’s Shiite Muslims and even Sunni Muslims reject the US boycott of Iran, and the ruling Congress Party has Muslims as one of its constituencies

    3. India is growing rapidly economically and has very little in the way of hydrocarbons itself, and so is very thirsty for Iranian oil and gas.
    Note that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are already pumping an extra 2.5 million barrels a day over what they were doing last year, and prices, while softening a bit on US and European slowdowns, are still historically high, suggesting that it will be very difficult for China and India to replace Iranian petroleum. The Sudan crisis has taken some supply off the markets and it could last a while.

Top U.S. Officer: Stop This ‘Total War’ on Islam Talk!

General Tommy Franks flashing the Devil’s Horn!

  • By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.
    – Dr John Coleman, Muslim Brotherhood created by British Intelligence
  • Two steps forward, 1 step back. When they are exposed, the Illuminists will take 1 step back. It is political theatre for sheeple consumption. Ask yourself this: if they are not caught and exposed, do you think they will stop the psyop against the Muslim people. I don’t think so! This is simply propaganda, psyop, brainwashing of young Americans via fear and hate: “You must kill them first before they kill you, your family, country…!”. Do not be taken for a ride. After the noise, protests .. clamor have died down the Illuminists will restart the psyop to brainwash the sheeple again. It is all about the Satanic World War 3 Plan.
  • Muslim terrorism/radicalism is owned/controlled by western Illuminist intelligence agencies: CIA, MI6, Mossad … the same snakes who are fomenting fear and hate against the Muslim people. The Illuminist tactic is: they control/own all sides in a conflict. Al Qaeda, Osama bin Lade (Tim Osman) are CIA creations/assets. 9/11 was an inside job planned by the Illuminist US shadow government and executed via the CIA and Mossad. The people in control/fomenting terrorism are Illuminists-Satanists. They are in the western ruling elites.

    Top U.S. Officer: Stop This ‘Total War’ on Islam Talk! 
    By ,
    America’s top military officer condemned in the strongest possible terms a Defense Department course that taught troops to prep for a “total war” on Islam using “Hiroshima”-style tactics.

    “It was totally objectionable, against our values and it wasn’t academically sound,” Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters at a Pentagon press conference on Thursday. The instructor responsible for the course, Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, is “no longer in a teaching status,” Dempsey added — but he is still employed at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va.

    Dempsey’s comments were prompted by a Danger Room report on Thursday that described Dooley’s course in detail. For at least a year, Dooley taught an optional course at the college for lieutenant colonels, colonels, commanders and Navy captains that proposed taking a war on Islam “to the civilian population wherever necessary,” which he likened to the bombardment of Dresden and nuclear destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Guest lecturers in the course encouraged those senior officers to think of themselves as a “resistance movement” to Islam.

    Dempsey and his deputy for military education, Marine Lt. Gen. George Flynn, pulled the plug on the course last month. The general said he was “quite thankful” for an unnamed military officer who brought word of the anti-Islam material to his attention. Dempsey and his staff launched an investigation into “what motivated that elective to being part of the curriculum,” as he put it on Thursday, and the general also sent a letter to the heads of every military service and regional command instructing them to jettison any similar material, as per a White House directive issued last fall.

    The inquiry, conducted by Army Maj. Gen. Frederick Rudesheim, is scheduled to conclude on May 24. Any disciplinary action against Dooley; the college’s commandant, Maj. Gen. Joseph Ward; or any other officer is contingent on its findings.

    “Final judgment should await General Rudesheim’s findings, but it’s not too early to say that these excerpts are offensive (though that word may be a bit mild here),” e-mails Douglas Ollivant, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and Iraq veteran who has taught at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. “Further, presentations like this do real harm to those trying to carefully distinguish extremism and support for it from otherwise admirable religious devotion.” The harm perpetuated on student officers “who accepted the implied authority of the instructor,” Ollivant added, “is obvious.”

U.S. Military Taught Officers: Use ‘Hiroshima’ Tactics for ‘Total War’ on Islam!

Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley’s Joint Staff Forces College presentation on “A Counter-Jihad Op Design Model” (.pdf) calls for violent measures in a war against Islam. (emphasis added)

  • Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley’s Joint Staff Forces College presentation on “A Counter-Jihad Op Design Model” (.pdf) calls for violent measures in a war against Islam. (emphasis added)
  • The ruling elites in the west are Illuminists-Satanists (and in the Pentagon too!). They are moving the world to their Satanic World War 3 plan. Do not fall for their psyops against the Muslim people. They want the Christian, Jewish sheeple to kill the Muslim sheeple and vice versa. The God of the Bible and His Beloved Son Jesus Christ never taught me to hate and kill Muslims, Iranians, Palestinians … or anybody. We are to love. Always to love, absolutely to love, even our enemies. The Muslim people are not our enemies. Do not serve in the military to fight in any of these Illuminists generated wars. Resign from the military, stay home, look after your family … and preach the Gospel.
  • Even though I do not agree with Islam as a religion, I have never heard a Muslim use the name of Jesus Christ as a curse/swear word. They respect Jesus Christ as a very important prophet. I only hear the name of Jesus Christ used as a curse/swear word in so-called Christian or westernized countries. Why is it so? It is because Hollywood, the entertainment industry, the MSM .. are controlled by the Synagogue of Satan. A Muslim when he bows his knees and prays, bows his knees to the God of Abraham. Do you know that!? They believe in the God of Abraham, same as Christians. It is the Synagogue of Satan which is fomenting conflict, war, death, genocide … against our fellowmen.

    Albert Pike’s Satanic World War 3 Plan
    The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…

    We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

    Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4
  • U.S. Military Taught Officers: Use ‘Hiroshima’ Tactics for ‘Total War’ on Islam! 
    By , 
    The U.S. military taught its future leaders that a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims would be necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists, according to documents obtained by Danger Room. Among the options considered for that conflict: using the lessons of “Hiroshima” to wipe out whole cities at once, targeting the “civilian population wherever necessary.”

    The course, first reported by Danger Room last month and held at the Defense Department’s Joint Forces Staff College, has since been canceled by the Pentagon brass. It’s only now, however, that the details of the class have come to light. Danger Room received hundreds of pages of course material and reference documents from a source familiar with the contents of the class.

    The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recently ordered the entire U.S. military to scour its training material to make sure it doesn’t contain similarly hateful material, a process that is still ongoing. But the officer who delivered the lectures, Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, still maintains his position at the Norfolk, Virginia college, pending an investigation. The commanders, lieutenant colonels, captains and colonels who sat in Dooley’s classroom, listening to the inflammatory material week after week, have now moved into higher-level assignments throughout the U.S. military.

    For the better part of the last decade, a small cabal of self-anointed counterterrorism experts has been working its way through the U.S. military, intelligence and law enforcement communities, trying to convince whoever it could that America’s real terrorist enemy wasn’t al-Qaida — but the Islamic faith itself. In his course, Dooley brought in these anti-Muslim demagogues as guest lecturers. And he took their argument to its final, ugly conclusion.

    “We have now come to understand that there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam,’” Dooley noted in a July 2011 presentation (.pdf), which concluded with a suggested manifesto to America’s enemies. “It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.”

    Dooley could not be reached for comment. Joint Forces Staff College spokesman Steven Williams declined to discuss Dooley’s presentation or his status at the school. But when asked if Dooley was responsible for the course material, he responded, “I don’t know if I would classify him [Dooley] as responsible. That would be the commandant” of the school, Maj. Gen. Joseph Ward.

    That makes the two-star general culpable for rather shocking material. In the same presentation, Dooley lays out a possible four-phase war plan to carry out a forced transformation of the Islam religion. Phase three includes possible outcomes like “Islam reduced to a cult status” and “Saudi Arabia threatened with starvation.” (It’s an especially ironic suggestion, in light of today’s news that Saudi intelligence broke up the most recent al-Qaida bombing plot.)

    International laws protecting civilians in wartime are “no longer relevant,” Dooley continues. And that opens the possibility of applying “the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki” to Islam’s holiest cities, and bringing about “Mecca and Medina[‘s] destruction.”

China Issues Warnings on Philippines!

  • China issues warnings on Philippines! 
    MANILA (AFP) – China told its citizens Thursday they were not safe in the Philippines and its state media warned of war, as a month-long row over rival claims in the South China Sea threatened to spill out of control.

    Chinese travel agencies announced they had suspended tours to the Philippines, under government orders, and the embassy in Manila advised its nationals already in the country to stay indoors ahead of planned protests.

    “Avoid going out at all if possible, and if not, to avoid going out alone. If you come across any demonstrations, leave the area, do not stay to watch,” the embassy’s advisory said.

    The safety alerts came as government-controlled media in China warned the country was prepared to go to war to end the stand-off over Scarborough Shoal — small islands in the South China Sea that both nations claim as their own.

    “No matter how willing we are to discuss the issue, the current Philippine leadership is intent on pressing us into a corner where there is no other option left but the use of arms,” the China Daily said in an editorial. “Manila is living in a fantasy world if it mistakes our forbearance for timidity.”

    Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said China was committed to a peaceful resolution. But the editorial echoed other warnings in recent weeks in the state-run media that China was prepared to use its massive military advantage to crush the Philippines’ challenge for the shoal.

    The two nations have had non-military vessels stationed at the shoal since April 8 in an effort to assert their sovereignty to the area. The dispute began when Philippine authorities detected Chinese ships fishing there. They attempted to arrest the crew, but were blocked by Chinese surveillance vessels that were quickly deployed to the area.

    The Philippines insists its claims to the area are backed by international law, as the shoal is well within its 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic zone. The shoal sits about 230 kilometres (140 miles) from the Philippines’ main island of Luzon. The nearest major Chinese landmass is 1,200 kilometres northwest of the shoal, according to Filipino navy maps.

    But China claims virtually all of the South China Sea as its territory, even waters close to the coasts of the Philippines and other Asian countries. Taiwan, Brunei, Vietnam and Malaysia also claim parts of the sea, which is believed to sit atop vast oil and gas resources. The rival claims have for decades made the waters one of Asia’s potential military flashpoints.
