Is China Mobilizing For A War With Japan?

Tyler Durden's picture


We don't know if it merely a coincidence that a story has emerged discussing a Chinese mobilization in response to the ongoing territorial feud with Japan over the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands (and the proximal massive gas field) the very week that China celebrates its new year (and days after news that a Chinese warship was very close to firing on a Japanese destroyer). We don't know how much of the story is based in reality, and how much may be propaganda or furthering someone's agenda. What we do know is that the source of the story: offshore-based, Falun Gong-affiliated NTDTV has historically been a credible source of information that the China communist party desperately tries to censor, such as breaking the news of the SARS epidemic in 2003 some three weeks before China publicly admitted it. Its motto is "to bring truthful and uncensored information into and out of China." If that is indeed the case, and its story of major troop movements and mobilization of various types of military vehicles and artillery into the Fujian and Zhejian provinces, bordering the East China Sea and closest to the Diaoyu islands, is accurate, then hostilities between China and Japan may be about to take a major turn for the worse.

Fujian and Zhejian provinces highlighted below:

The clip that NTDTV released late yesterday covering the news is presented below.

As for the accompanying commentary, we recreate it below in its entirety so nothing is lost in translation (original source).

NTDTV February 8, 2013 News - the continental network transmission, Fujian and Zhejiang troops for several days active. Plus before the news that Chinese warships radar has repeatedly aimed at the Japanese ships and planes, therefore, the media have speculated that China may "prepare for war" Diaoyu Islands .


According to friends broke the news: February 3, Nan'an, Fujian Highway 308, artillery units practical exercise for several days.


February 3 to 6, Fujian, Xiamen, Zhangzhou, Huzhou, a large troop movements, nearly 100 vehicles of various types of military vehicles, armored vehicles, artillery filled the entire road, endless, Xiamen and even the scene of a traffic jam 10 kilometers.


In addition, on February 3 in Shiyan, Hubei, a large number of tanks, wheeled military base from Shiyan room counties is delivered to the coastal areas. Many local residents of the tense situation of some concern.


Prior to this allegation, January 15 and 30, the Chinese navy guided missile frigate, twice the fire control radar lock frigates and ship-borne helicopters of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force, is also considered to enter a combat state.


According to mainland media quoted the "People's Daily" front-page article claiming that China will not change in point of view on the issue of the Diaoyu Islands , and have to prepare to win the war.


The international media alleged that China has purchased from Russia 239 engine, used in the manufacture of the H-6K. Combat covering the Diaoyu Islands, in this model, the engine can also be used to manufacture transported -20 transport aircraft purchased.


If the engine assembled, will greatly enhance China's military power.


Integrated these signs and reports, people have come to a startling conclusion: Day might want to go to war.


According to military experts, the Sino-Japanese war in the Diaoyu Islands, Fujian and Zhejiang provinces, is the most important logistical base. If the war to expand, at any time, will spread to the provinces of Fujian, Zhejiang.

The translation is correct for the black banner across the middle.

The largest two-character signs say, "Defend Diaoyu," and the prominent signs at top say, "Diaoyu Islands are part of Chinese Territory."

BTW, this picture is from Tiawan, which of course has it's own island disputes with both Mainland China and Japan.

I think Chinese leaders are more worried about unrests in their own country than Japan.  There is zero possibility Japan attacks China first over the islets, since Japan is in control of the rocks.  Besides if China wants to go to war with Japan, building up troops behind Taiwan does not make any sense.  They should be moving north.

"Shame half the  USN carriers are overdue multi year refits."

Shame we spent to much money on useless wars, over 900 military bases, and thousands of mercenaries that are being readied to go to war against the American peoples. No mas denero senor to fight your stinking wars. All this is well planned to drive the country into the poor house. The poor are easier to control and kill off without resources to do battle against the beast that seeks to kill everyone off. Where is that stratfor report showing the locations of our naval assets now? Are they all home getting ready for the next big lu-lu of a world war? Hummmm...maybe.

Sorry, but NTDTV is not a credible news source re. China. Rather it is a propaganda arm of Falung Gung cult set.

However, there is a huge military mobilization going on in China according to reports from other Chinese sources, mostly air and missile forces, right in the eve of Chinese New Year.

From the tone of official news agency, I don't believe there is an imminent military action, rather a saber rattling to a new degree.

We will see.

those fn chinese inscrutable motherfuckers. does anyone really think the usa will come to the aid of the japanese as per the security pact(or the south koreans for that matter)? does anyone think the japanese will wage a war with the chinese alone? the chinese have the usa and the japanese(and the south koreans) boxed.  this could even be in response to the iran rhetoric with kerry starting off his new job with another threat to iran. russia has signalled they will not sit idly by by reminding the japanese of their claim on the ryukyu islands. the usa has to show their hand. will they support japan at the expense of trade? leaving japan(and south korea) with no choice but to side with china(and russia) against the usa? effectively making the usa a client state of china. or will the usa engage in a shooting match they can't possibly win simply as a mathematical exercise?

so if the usa decides to escalate into iran the chinese attack the senkakus with russia taking the ryukyus and the usa holding it's pud to protect it from getting it whacked off by the dragon lady while japan and south korea start telling the chinese how wonderful the peking duck and dim sum is while dancing like a bunch of cossacks..

Taking one thing with another, China appears to have the capability of landing about a division of troops at maximum effort - and that is if all their transports are working.  But it is a long body of water to cross and the Japanese Navy is strong enough to enjoin a great deal of caution - in short, unless China gains pretty much absolute command of the sea, it would be suicidal to attempt a major landing (just in the Harpoon-equipped Japanese submarine force you have a lot of reasons for the Chinese to keep their fleet in port).  Dropping a few troops off on a surprise mission is, of course, possible.

There is absolutely no point to land any troops on that island for either side. The supply requirement alone will prove to be disasterous.

Your computer just phone home to foxconn to report all your passwords and banking transactions.

Make sense to have all hi-tech made in China why would we want to retain that ability when we can save millions of dollars by outsourcing.

Chinese made routers,with builtin packet sniffers and back doors, guess what happens when the war starts? Owning the enemies comms is what led to our fast victory in Iraq version 1. That and destroying there air force by shutting down their Radar.

What happens when our enemies make our radar and comms? Maybe that block of epoxy on your circuit board isn't insurance against reverse engineering, but instead is C4 waiting for a signal to detonate.  Every cell phone becomes a bomb with built in webcam and GPS. Targeting people becomes easier by the day.

From a few years ago..

For example, seven years ago Chinese based hackers attacked several Department of Defense computer networks and, even though discovered, got away with a lot of valuable material. Among the victims was the U.S. Navy War College which, in response, had to shut down its computer network because the Naval War College servers had to be scrutinized to see what was taken, changed, or left behind. Why attack the Navy War College? Mainly because that's where the navy does a lot of its planning for future wars. The strategy for the Pacific war during World War II was worked out at the Navy War College, and that planning tradition continues.

So... yeah.

America lies dying from self-inflicted wounds. Drones,wiretaps,torture,posing the dead, millions on psycho-active meds, time bombs waiting to detonate. An economic system clearly cleaved into haves and have nots, and the nots outnumbering the haves by legions more each day.

It doesn't have to be like this, but it is. Ask yourself who benefits from this chaos and despair?

"Military people are not renowned for their intelligence."

While we may exercise compassion, as well as the pen, let us do so and know that compassion is the answer because as with us all, we only become products of our environments from our first fear filled breath. Like most human beings on the planet, we only know what we know. Were all military people and all souls on board taught from childhood that there is more to life than the material side they mostly only know, things would be different. If they were taught from a hearts perspective, then certainly the military might not even exist in a near perfect world based on the power of Love and true beneficial righteous Light to help people, not kill them. Love thee one another as you love yourself would be embedded in a do unto others as you would have them do unto you world. The words Live, Allow, and Accept would be mainstays in the mindset of every loving being from the beginning of life. If they were taught to grow organic vegetables, instead of how to kill each other for some materialists gains, educated properly as most here on ZH are, then we would see a different kind of beautiful spiritual being having a grand and prosperous human experience. All pretty simple really. Can you say Love comes from the Heart, and not the easily fooled mind?

Operation Tomodachi

Oops! I thought it's Operation Tamagotchi


70,000 US Service Personnel Exposed To Radiation: Operation Tomodachi 3/11

Operation Tomodachi was a humanitarian mission conducted in Japan after the 9.0 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster that began March 11th, 2011 and lasted 80 days. 70,000 US servicemen & women from the Navy, Airforce, Army & Marines delivered food, blankets & water in areas of devastation. What they didn't know was the severity of radiation exposure they received since TEPCO refused to acknowledge the extent of what was happening at the Fukushima plant.

A registry was created to track subsequent health problems by the Department of Defense, but that program was recently abandoned. As many servicemen and women have already begun to exhibit severe health issues a lawsuit was filed in San Diego Federal Court against TEPCO by Environmental Law Attorney Paul Garner, to establish a medical fund for the servicemen & women who were involved in this operation as well as their families in Japan. We speak to Mike Seybourn about what it was like to work in a highly radioactive environment and what the future may hold for he and his family in terms of health. Paul Garner also joins us to discuss the lawsuit, dealing with TEPCO, and what kind of problems his clients are having."


READ THE ENENEWS, they have more breathtaking stories on this disaster... Report: Many U.S. servicemembers’ kids in Japan developed medical issues after 3/11 — “My son went on a vomiting fit of about 3 months… 15-20 times a day” (VIDEO)

No nonsense guide to international redevelopment.  (controlled demolitions as the byproduct of war) p53
The basic principle of 'urban renewal ... involves the leveling of an area that has been condemned by the authorities, and the construction of a new development to take its place... In a local community urban renewal program the 'leveling' job is carried out by a demolition crew
To make a killing on 'urban renewal' projects internationally, it is necessary for the 'developers' to send in demolition crews at no cost to themselves, and have them level the prime portions of the target areas, so that these may be picked up inexpensively when the countries are defeated and inundated with war debts. Internationally, these demolition 'jobs' are engineered and brought to fruition by means of war... The international 'developers' then step in to seize control of the blighted areas for a pittance, and launch massive redevelopment projects without having paid a cent for the use of the demolition crews. The profits on such international projects are astronomical. The highly financed and immensely profitable 'urban renewal projects' that have taken place on the international scene since the beginning of the 20th century have been staged in 'theaters of war'. ... Is there one group that has truly prospered in the midst of all this diabolical mayhem? Yes, there is such a group - international bankers. They finance and stage these bloodletting extravaganzas, and reap the blood-soaked profits as they move towards the accomplishment of their plan to enslave mankind in a New World Order.

Get real. That is not "a large troop movement", but a tiny one. Even a small country like Finland typically has hundreds of vehicles out when having war games or a field exercise. Even a thousand vehicles is no cause for concern. Moreover, it is Air Force and Navy China needs, if they want to grab Senkaku/Diaoyu.

Just came out of nowhere and blew away Japan's enemies. Japan doesn't appear on any list of countries with nuclear weapons because they don't officially have any - thy just have a couple of hundred piles of parts which will take, oh, maybe an hour or two to make into a couple of hundred fully operational nukes.

americanspirit, you're right! 


Beginning in 1991 reporters for the National Security News Service undertook an investigation into a covert Japanese nuclear weapons program. Our work has continued over the years. It gave NSNS unique insights into the reasons for the misstatements and secrecy that surround the ongoing tragedy at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. This story represents the work of a team of current and former reporters, fellows and interns for NSNS.

How Japan ended up in this nuclear nightmare is a subject the National Security News Service has been investigating since 1991. We learned that Japan had a DUAL USE nuclear program. The public program was to develop and provide unlimited energy for the country. But there was also a secret component, an undeclared nuclear weapons program that would allow Japan to amass enough nuclear material and technology to become a major nuclear power on short notice. That secret effort was hidden in a nuclear power program that by March 11, 2011– the day the earthquake and tsunami overwhelmed the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant – had amassed 70 metric tons of plutonium.

A Chinese invasion of the disputed islands or of Taiwan would be just what the US MIC ordered. Another proxy war to establish US hegemony in Asia, a good excuse to default on its Chinese held debt and a false belief that war will kick-start the US economy.

And of course anyday now we will have an interview with someome on tv discussing "how our economy will react" to all of this. LOL.  That's how fucking stupid they are.

The elite will spend the rest of their lives in underground bunkers sitting on top of a pile of gold the size of most peoples houses and trying to figure out how to get out of the bunker and steal the gold in some other guys bunker 10,000 miles away without getting radiated.

Kets consider what happens when  a rich bich loses all there money, they jump out of the 50th story window, they cant go back to living on peanut butter and bread, do you think these same rich fuckers want to go live in an underground bunker for the rest of there lives. Do they really want to blow up there factories in china or kill there consumers in the US. You want someone to finally "push the button" give me a man who doesnt give a shit anymore, Give me the big red button and I would launch the nukes all over the world, cities outhouses and inhouses without batting an eye
