China Slams US "Hypocrisy", Tells Obama To Stop "Inspiring Militancy"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Tensions between China and the U.S. continue to grow. On Wednesday, Beijing called U.S. Secretary remark about "provocative behavior" of China in the South China Sea "inspiring militancy," and insisted that the U.S. "stop encouraging the provocation" of the Philippines and Vietnam. As China Daily reports, China has expressed the view that the U.S. must abandon the "hypocrisy" and stop publicly support Vietnam and the Philippines in territorial disputes with China.

As RIA reports, Tensions between China and the U.S. continues to grow, experts say. On Wednesday, Beijing called U.S. Secretary remark about "provocative behavior" of China in the South China Sea "inspiring militancy," writes China Daily .

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a telephone conversation with John Kerry that China insists that the U.S. "stop encourage provocation" of the Philippines and Vietnam.

 

According to analysts, so China has expressed the view that the U.S. must abandon the "hypocrisy" and stop publicly support Vietnam and the Philippines in territorial disputes with China.

 

Earlier it was reported that the Philippine government to seize the Chinese fishing boat and 11 crew members on charges of catching endangered sea turtles in the territory disputed waters of the South China Sea. Shortly before that, Vietnam demanded that China stop drilling for oil in the South China Sea.

 

Tensions between China, Vietnam and the Philippines began to increase after last week, President Barack Obama signed a new military agreement with the Philippines, which aims to persuade Asian allies of American support in case of conflict with Beijing.

 

According to experts, the reason why the conflict risks becoming much more serious than just a territorial dispute is because Philippines quickly became embroiled in the geopolitical rivalry between the U.S. and China, while the two powers are fighting for strategic dominance in the western Pacific Ocean, says Al Jazeera article "Strategic Dilemma of the Philippines, between the eagle and the dragon."

 

Professor at the Chinese Institute of International Relations Dan Dzhankun believes that the U.S. is fully engaged in the problems encountered in the Asia-Pacific region because of its relationship with China. However, Washington's aggressive behavior in the territory of South-East Asia is unlikely to stabilize the situation. "The Obama administration is moving away from a century of U.S. diplomatic tradition in maintaining the balance between the other two countries," - said the expert, noting that "sabotage relations between the south-eastern countries may have important implications for the situation in the region and even the world. And fatal mistakes in strategy, which adheres Obama can not be ignored."

Seems like the potential for "costs" are growing...

Which is why I don't expect war tomorrow.  Maybe next month, maybe next year, but not until even bolder moves against the USD are made, and our ability to import oil is severely hampered.  Then, there may be no need for war with a foreign country, as we will be crippled, and may be experiencing a war amongst ourselves.  Shit is only just starting to get serious.  There is still quite a bit more economic escalation that can happen, and I expect that it will happen.  If you look at it from a purely logical standpoint and throw ethics out the window, if the US truly wants a war, it needs to fire the first shot, and it needs to do so soon.

Obama understands he needs to get some new money into the economy fast or as G W Bush famously said... "This sucker will be going down".

With the need to inject new dollars and/or debt into the economy before everything including precious corporate profitability implodes... the ONLY thing both NeoCon parties can agree on at this time is WAR SPENDING.

For all intents and purposes this is a "Now or never" moment for the struggling American Empire...

One, they're all in this together. Two, even if they weren't, the US could just refuse to honor them. What is China going to do then? It is already a trade war at that point. Three, they have plenty of their own debt to manage and I imagine those treasuries are some of the premium collateral they hold.

Germany twice lost major wars trying to fight on two fronts simultaneously.

Now, a community organizer is conducting US foreign policies fighting against Russia and China simultaneously. It appears that Obama's puppeteers, the Zionist Banking Mafia, became totally intellectually bankrupt getting Napoleonic mentality. These puppeteers still do not understand that they cannot afford any more feebleminded and community organizers as leaders of the Western world.

As for Vietnamese and Philippines, it is not smart on their part to get involved in somebody else wars. There is no anymore Soviet army to defend Vietnamese from China as it was in 1970s.

The lesson the American people are going to have to "relearn" over the next 2-10 years, may be too much for most to be able to live with! THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FOREVER IN THIS WORLD, there never was and there never will be! 

They can issue 200 billion at a time for a minute or two, but when the price of "real stuff" becomes two or three times more expensive then it is now, someone WILL pay the piper eventually!

Arius is correct in what he said, the Fed/ECB/etc. can simply buy up the excess UST's and, from a nominal value standpoint, there would be a Hillary-esque "what's the difference!"  The consequences of this action are similar to what we've already been experiencing via QE (stealth inflation).  Literally the only thing that matters is whether we can still obtain oil for dollars, and it is somewhat uncertain whether we could in the wake of such a UST dump.  We could probably handle no longer buying shit from China, but if we can't get oil from Saudi Arabia, that's the mad max scenario.

Of course, the "funny" part is that Saudi Arabia probably does not have more than 10 years left at anywhere close to current production levels.  Think through he implications, if we improbably don't hit a snag based on petrodollar issues beforehand.

It won't matter to China, If the West wants to dig their own grave and then jump in it, China won't go down with them!  Russia is on its way to "decoupling" as we speak, China is too, by the way they are buying everything with gold in it, on it, made of it, and looks like it! There mistake will be waiting too long to unload, not if they unload. 

China has the biggest. most powerful economy and growing, Russia has the MOST undiscovered natural resources on the planet AND the infrastructure and will to export them. India has the biggest emerging economy opportunity on the planet, Latin America hates America for more reasons then we have time to go into, ALL OF THEM WANT OUT FROM UNDER THE US DOLLAR!

WHAT DOES AMERICA HAVE.................trillions in debt, an undereducated population, overtaxation, entitlment run wild, an aging baby boom population, and ARROGENCE enough for the whole world x2

and before we start with the military nonsense....America has a professional Army, which means they get PAID to fight and take orders, when the pay stops coming or can't put food on the tables of their families, then talk to me about all the fancy equipment, etc etc  

No petrodollar = No Professional Military

China has the same debt issues the US has, their military is strong on land, weak at sea. Russia is incapable of extracting resources without US- European technology. Latin America is impotent. Africa is genocidal. The US is just the biggest tyrant is a room filled with tyrants. The combined US-EU economies dwarf the BRICS and the BRICS are export driven- no exports, no BRICS.

The hard truth about economic and generational cycles is, there has to be a beginning and there HAS to be an end!! America is at the end of the cycle, the BRICS are at the beginning!!

"The BRICS have all the dynamics for a consumer driven growth cycle, especially China!"

The BRICs are export-driven.  Pretty much everyone except Russia is broke (and Russia is going to hid a hard spot here as they transition from EU markets to Chinese ones- can't switch overnight and the EU is going down fast).

"The hard truth about economic and generational cycles is, there has to be a beginning and there HAS to be an end!! America is at the end of the cycle, the BRICS are at the beginning!!"

You're making a BIG assumption here, that this is just some regular cycle occurring.  This is the end of a super-cycle, a super-cycle based on a vast accumulation of nature's treasures- oil.

Brazil - are you kidding me?

Russia - yes, it DOES has resources (but if the game is wealth generation/creation then you need trade, and the ROW, except China, is dead-ass broke.

India - are you kidding me? (no resources, they've got 750 million people living on $0.50/day)

China - they've peaked.  The don't have resources (key being energy).  They'll just be spending down their accumulations of wealth as internal frictions heat up (promises made, promises foresaken).

South Africa - Someone made this shit up...

Again, Canada, Russia and the US will be the last ones standing.  Paper will burn, books thrown out.  It then comes down to REAL stuff, and these countries have the largest collections of physical/natural resources to at least be a level above stone-age (for a while).

We are slouching back towards another recession within this depression, and this is with NIRP and the FED printing (we will not monetize the deficit) around 100 billion a month.

Milk is $4 a gallon and so is gas.  We have a cool trillion in student loans because there are too many unemployed and using school to pretend they are "switching careers" and about a third of these loans are in default.

Can someone please tell me where the silver lining is here?

pods, I suspect what you and others do: this is deliberate. 

Shoeing horses is painful (for the horse).   If you don't distract them, they get annoyed, and they are strong.  So humans developed this thing called a "nose twitch": essentially a cinch that you hook over a big flappy piece of horse nose, and then twist good and tight until the horse is cross-eyed, fixated on what the heck is (painfully) going on with it's nose.    Occupies their attention while you dive metal spikes into their hooves.

Iran, Syria, Ukraine, China; the US seems to be desperate for a nose twitch.   Nails r comin'.

Telling Ukraine's government that using the military against protestors was a criminal act, and now a few months later saying the use of military aginst protestors is an obligation of Ukraine's government. Now, I leave it to you to sort out the hypocracy in those statements.

* RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

Corporate Europe Observatory has just released a critical report on the record of the European Commission over the last five years. The report sums up the record of the outgoing Barroso II Commission and how it has interacted with big business lobby groups during its term.

The critique of the Commission in the report is damning. The Commission has pursued a corporate agenda, with little regard for other interests in society. Moreover, the Commission has fought tooth and nail to avoid effective regulation of lobbyists, including by opposing a mandatory register and avoiding serious reform of its advisory structure, with its so-called expert groups dominated by big business representatives in many areas.

Who would buy them?   And supposing they found a buyer, what would they do with the money?   They'd just be exchanging one debt that pays interest for another that doesn't.

To see any value in the transaction you'd have to buy hard assets with the proceeds, but that's a lot of money to spend all at once which would drive the price of whatever they bought (oil for example) much higher.

Better to tip-toe quietly out the back door, which I believe is what they and Russia are already doing.

Putin pointed this out a while back: everything is connected.  Move one piece and it affects all the others.   That's Globalism, AKA  Mexican standoff.

I think that the "leaders" of the three countries might realize that declaring "war" would be the best way to write things off and present shutdoors to keep a bunch of folks (big business?) from trying to keep the losing game going on any longer.  This is all going to end anyway.  I don't believe that "war" will end up involving actual bombs and bullets: TPTB across the globe don't want that as everywhere would be a target.  And when wars are declared there's the rally-around-the-flag thing (internal oppression ramp-ups are "good").

'Why do we tolerate the threat of another world war in our name? Why do we allow lies that justify this risk? The scale of our indoctrination, wrote Harold Pinter, is a "brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis", as if the truth "never happened even while it was happening"

"Every year the American historian William Blum publishes his "updated summary of the record of US foreign policy" which shows that, since 1945, the US has tried to overthrow more than 50 governments, many democratically elected; grossly interfered in elections in 30 countries; bombed the civilian populations of 30 countries; used chemical and biological weapons; and attempted to assassinate foreign leaders.

In many cases Britain has been a collaborator. The degree of human suffering, let alone criminality, is little acknowledged in the West, despite the......"

Then I figured out that I should be the one issuing the bonds based on the full faith and credit of my screen name.  The underlying asset would be gold and silver but I would never cough that up.  I would just print out some paper and hand you a slip.
