Will Washington Risk WW3 to Block an Emerging EU-Russia Superstate

  • Will Washington Risk WW3 to Block an Emerging EU-Russia Superstate
    by Mike Whitney, http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/
    The relentless demonization of Vladimir Putin is just one part of Washington’s multi-pronged strategy to roll-back Russian power in Central Asia and extinguish Putin’s dream of a “Greater Europe”. Along with the attempt to smear the Russian president as a “KGB thug” and “dictator”, the media has also alleged that Moscow intervened in the US presidential elections and that Russia is a serial aggressor that poses a growing threat to European and US national security. The media onslaught, which has greatly intensified since the election of Donald Trump in November 2016, has been accompanied by harsh economic sanctions, asymmetrical attacks on Russia’s markets and currency, the arming and training of Russian adversaries in Ukraine and Syria, the calculated suppression of oil prices, and a heavy-handed effort to sabotage Russia’s business relations in Europe.  In short, Washington is doing everything in its power to prevent Russia and Europe from merging into the world’s biggest free trade zone that will be the center of global growth and prosperity for the next century.

    This is why the US State Department joined with the CIA to topple the elected government of Ukraine in 2014. Washington hoped that by annexing a vital landbridge between the EU and Asia, US powerbrokers could control critical pipeline corridors that are drawing the two continents closer together into an alliance that will exclude the United States. The prospect of Russia meeting more of the EU’s growing energy needs, while China’s high-speed railway system delivers more low-cost manufactured goods, suggests that the world’s center of economic gravity is shifting fast increasing the probability that the US will continue on its path of irreversible decline. And when the US dollar is inevitably jettisoned as the primary means of exchange between trade partners in the emerging Asia-EU free trade zone, then the recycling of wealth into US debt will drop off precipitously sending US markets plunging while the economy slips into a deep slump. Preventing Putin from “creating a harmonious community of economies from Lisbon to Vladivostok” is no minor hurtle for the United States.  It’s a matter of life and death.

    Remember the Wolfowitz Doctrine:
    “Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.”

China to Japan: Don’t Meddle in South China Sea

  • Published on Mar 16, 2017
    The Chinese Foreign Ministry has warned Japan that Beijing will give a firm response should Tokyo interfere in the South China Sea. Hua Chunying made the remarks after media reports suggested that Japan is planning to dispatch its largest warship to the South China Sea. She also called on Tokyo to act cautiously. The Chinese Foreign ministry spokeswoman demanded that Japan reflect on its disgraceful past invasion of Chinese islands. This came amid simmering tensions in the strategic sea. Beijing claims sovereignty over almost all the South China Sea. Japan does not have any claim to the body of water, but has a separate maritime dispute with Beijing in the East China Sea.

“The Biggest Show Of Force Since World War II”: Japan To Send Its Largest Warship To South China Sea

Japan Maritime Self Defense Force’s helicopter carrier Izumo

  • Why is Japan getting involved militarily in the South China Sea where they do not have any territorial disputes with China? They have been ordered to do so by US-Pentagram. It is provocation to ignite the Greater Asia War as part of WW3. Japan is a colony, a vassal state, of the western Illuminati.
  • “The Biggest Show Of Force Since World War II”: Japan To Send Its Largest Warship To South China Sea
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    The tension over the disputed territory in the South China Sea is about to escalate to another level: according to a Reuters report, Japan is preparing to to dispatch its largest warship on a three-month tour through the South China Sea beginning in May, in “its biggest show of naval force in the region since World War Two.”

    The 249 meter-long (816.93 ft) Izumo is as large as Japan’s World War Two-era carriers and can operate up to nine helicopters. It resembles the amphibious assault carriers used by U.S. Marines, but lacks their well deck for launching landing craft and other vessels.

    While China claims almost all the disputed waters despite the regular complaints of other nations in the region, and its growing military presence has fueled concern in Japan and the West, with the United States holding regular air and naval patrols to ensure freedom of navigation, so far Japan’s territorial claims have involved the Senkaku island chain in the East China Sea; that however appears to be changing as Japan seeks to stake a military presence in the contested region.

China Warns of Nuclear First Strike in Response to THAAD Deployment

  • China Warns of Nuclear First Strike in Response to THAAD Deployment
    by  | http://www.Infowars.com
    China warns that it is reconsidering its policy not to use nuclear weapons against South Korea in response to the U.S. deploying the THAAD missile system and sending B-52 bombers to protect its ally.

    THAAD is being deployed to shield South Korea from North Korean ballistic missiles after several tests by the Stalinist state in recent months. Beijing is furious because the system will also be capable of detecting and tracking missiles launched from China.

    It was also reported yesterday that the U.S. will send B-1 and B-52 nuclear bombers to South Korea in order to display a stern show of strength.

    300,000 South Korean troops and 15,000 US personnel have also started their annual Foal Eagle military exercise. The USS Carl Vinson nuke-powered aircraft carrier will join the drill – carrying dozens of fighter jets.

    An article in the Global Times, which is widely regarded as the voice of the Chinese government, says that Beijing will respond to America’s “strategic provocations” by actioning a “rapid increase in the number and quality of China’s strategic nuclear weapons” and that China isn’t worried about starting a limited “arms race”.

    Asserting that “the US must pay the price for the THAAD deployment,” the piece goes on to warn that, “If the US further intensifies its anti-missile attempts and strategic containment, China may reconsider its pledge of not being the first to use nuclear weapons.”

    In other words, Beijing is signaling that it would be prepared to use nuclear weapons against South Korea in the event of a conflict.

    In a related development, China’s second aircraft carrier is moving closer to completion while China vows to use its “first class navy” to intercept any “intruding aircraft” within its region of control.

    Last month, Beijing warned the Trump administration that the People’s Liberation Army is “making preparations” for war after the deployment of the nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson to patrol the South China Sea.

    Meanwhile, columnist Pat Buchanan warns that a new “Korean missile crisis” could be on the horizon.

    “New tests by North Korea of missiles or atom bombs for an ICBM could bring U.S. strikes on its nuclear facilities and missile sites, igniting an attack on the South,” he writes, adding that China would then be forced to defend its ally.

Donald Trump Set to Send B-52 NUCLEAR BOMBERS to South Korea After North Fires Missiles at Japan And US Warns of ‘Overwhelming’ Response

  • North Korea is a vassal state of the western Illuminati controlled via the CIA. It is used to control South Korea and Japan, to allow for the deployment of US military bases in both countries: ie. maintaining US hegemony and surrounding both China and Russia.
  • The serpents are playing some kind of deadly game. They intend to sucker China into a Asia wide war using North Korea. How they are going to do so remains to be seen. China, IMO, will not bite when the US-Pentagram (South Korea & Japan) launches air and ICBM attacks on North Korea. Ie. China will not go to the defense of North Korea. The problem really starts (for China) when the US alliance launches ground invasion into North Korea. US troops on North Korean soil is a ‘NO GO’ for China. They will be at China’s doorstep.

Why all the secrecy? And why deny Japan info? North Korea is controlled opposition. Kim Jong Un is a Illuminist puppet of the west. NKorea is used to control South Korea and Japan. To prevent them from joining China and allow the deployment of US military bases for the encirclement of China and Russia. Click on image to goto article.

Realist News: Central Banks & Gold — A SEA CHANGE Is Coming

  • Central Banks & Gold: A SEA CHANGE Is Coming
    by ALASDAIR MACLEOD, https://wealth.goldmoney.com/
    The very near future is likely to see a sea-change in central bankers’ attitude to the gold allocation in their reserves. The failure of G20 monetary policy since the financial crisis is causing a general rethink, which may eventually lead to a new policy direction.


    For now, that is undecided, beyond a growing acceptance that today’s monetary policy does not work and the assumptions of recent decades, that gold as money should be phased out, might have been a mistake.

    The idea, that Western central banks could banish gold from the monetary scene over time, has been disrupted by the persistence of Asian demand, fuelled by the remarkable economic progress of ex-communist states embracing capitalist methods. Western financial markets have hardly begun to grasp the wider implications of the shift in economic power from the heavily-indebted welfare economies, to China, Russia and other members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, and their consequences for gold.

    The welfare-driven states rely on money and credit expansion to conceal the true costs of their escalating government spending. They have been motivated to deny gold’s fundamental role as sound money, because it is superior to their unsound money. The increasing prosperity of Asians of all races, who still value gold for its ability to retain its purchasing power, ultimately undermines Western monetary policy, as well as the propaganda that goes with it.

    The shift of physical demand from West to East has been widely chronicled, ever since the Shanghai Gold Exchange became a conduit for escalating physical demand. Inevitably, the West’s desire to demonise gold has accelerated the process, and we are now at the point where control of the gold price could suddenly shift from Western capital markets, trading in futures, deferred settlements and unallocated accounts, to the markets supplying bullion in Asia.

The US and China on the Doorstep of War — Trump Challenges Beijing — Who Will Blink First?

Spratlys_Islands_Map_boundaries

  • The US and China on the Doorstep of War — Trump Challenges Beijing — Who Will Blink First?
    by Dave Hodges, http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/
    President Trump and Defense Secretary Mettes(Mattis) are not backing down to the Chinese. As I write these words Carrier Task Force 1, has sailed into the South China Sea as America calls the bluff of China to stay out of the region.

    South China Sea Tensions Resurface
    After months of relative calm, the events in the South China Sea are, again, heating up and are threatening to bring chaos and war to the South China Sea and perhaps the planet.

    The major players in the territorial dispute are China, Vietnam and the United States. At issue are the Spratly Islands in which China has constructed artificial Islands and militarized them as they lay claim to the area. This is a dispute that has both the US and Vietnam up in arms.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said that tensions in the waters have stabilized, due to the hard work of Beijing and Southeast Asia countries. However, he warns, the US should cease patrolling the South China Sea as it belongs to China. He further elaborated that the US will respect the current situation by not taking “any actions that challenge China’s sovereignty and security,” according to Reuters. And now we have the fertile ground of a stand0ff and the potential for World War III.

    A Review of the Surface Nature of the Dispute
    The following map encapsulates the territorial disputes between several nations. China has claimed the South China Sea as its own which is in direct violation of international law.

Carrier Strike Group USS Carl Vinson Begins Routine Patrol In South China Sea

  • Published on Feb 19, 2017
    Breaking News – Carrier Strike Group USS Carl Vinson Begins Patrol In South China Sea Update

    SOUTH CHINA SEA (NNS) — Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 1, including Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 1’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108), and aircraft from Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2, began routine operations in the South China Sea, Feb. 18.

    Prior to their operations in the South China Sea, ships and aircraft from within the strike group conducted training off the islands of Hawaii and Guam to maintain and improve their readiness and develop cohesion as a strike group. The strike group recently enjoyed a port visit to Guam and after departing the Marianas, conducted operations in the Philippine Sea.

    “The training completed over the past few weeks has really brought the team together and improved our effectiveness and readiness as a strike group,” said Rear Adm. James Kilby, commander, CSG 1. “We are looking forward to demonstrating those capabilities while building upon existing strong relationships with our allies, partners and friends in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.”

    Vinson last deployed to the Western-Pacific in 2015 and conducted a bilateral exercise with the Royal Malaysian Navy and Royal Malaysian Air Force in the South China Sea. Vinson first operated in the South China Sea in 1983 and in total, has operated there during 16 previous deployments over its 35 year history.

    While deployed, the Carl Vinson CSG will remain under U.S. 3rd Fleet command and control, including beyond the international dateline, which previously divided operational areas of responsibility for 3rd and 7th Fleets. Third Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets. This operational concept allows both numbered fleets to complement one another and provide the foundation of stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

    CVW-2 includes the “Black Knights” of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 4, the “Blue Hawks” of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 78, the “Bounty Hunters” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 2, the “Blue Blasters” of VFA-34, the “Kestrels” of VFA-137, the “Golden Dragons” of VFA-192, the “Black Eagles” of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 113, the “Gauntlets” of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 136 and the “Providers” of Fleet Logistic Support Squadron (VRC) 30.
  • Published on Feb 19, 2017
    A fleet of supporting warships is accompanying the U-S-S Carl Vinson aircraft carrier. This comes days after China’s Foreign Ministry warned Washington against challenging its sovereignty in the region. Shortly after taking office in January, U-S President Donald Trump vowed to prevent China from taking over territory in international waters in the South China Sea. Beijing claims most of the South China Sea. Other claimants are Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.
