"China Will Not Hesitate To Protect Iran Even With A Third World War"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Fast forward to 2:08: "It is puzzling to some that Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, a professor from the Chinese National Defense University, said China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third World War... Professor Xia Ming: "Zhang Zhaozhong said that not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs...." And don't forget Russia, which recently said it is preparing to retaliate against NATO and has put radar stations on combat alert: "Russia is another ally of Iran, with similar policy to that of China. Toward Iran." Watch, and please forward the entire video, for an explanation of how China is approaching the situation not only in Iran, but a perspective of how they view the western "threat", as well as what tensions they face domestically.

For those who are not familiar with General Zhang, he is not a serious military figure but a TV personaility. Because of his many wrong predictions during the 2nd Iraq war, he became a laughing stock, a Chinese version of Baghdad Bob.

Party bosses let Zhang run his mouth to please the ego of conservative audience and give Chinese government a macho apperance. He is a tool and a clown, nothing more.

China isn't going to war any time soon, even if/when we do insanely attack Iran.  This is more about heightening rhetoric on all sides.   It needs to sound really dire so that the sheeple in each respective country unite together and stop being dissonant.  That's what this truly is about.  That's why we have a war every ten years.  Support the President dropping bombs on Iranian children or you don't support our troops and are anti-American!

Iran will get a nuclear weapon one way or another eventually no matter what we do, but if there's anything that's going to prompt them to try to use it, it's going to be to get revenge on countries that think it's OK to bomb or invade them for pursuing military technology that many other countries already have.  It's ridiculous.  But the reality is that Iran doesn't want nukes to use them, Iran wants nukes so they can come sit at the adult table and don't get treated like a child.  They aren't going to use them because it would be suicide, and they know it.  Even the insane leaders of radical movements that advocate suicide bombing always get some other poor schmuck to volunteer and do it for them, ever notice that?  These guys aren't interested in dying.

Aggression fuels aggression.  More destruction is not going to solve this.  But of course it's not intended to solve anything.  War, by and large, is a means by which control is reasserted and power consolidated.

China is building spare cities because they can!  They are using the dollars they have and they are building huge unoccupied cities.  And if it sounds like I am about to channel Trump I am not.  Trump should applaud China for investing in America for the last 50 years.  I do too, because a good investment shows. 

But if China stays invested, they will lose all of their money.

How funny is it that China went along with Fed policie today?  Tied at the hip, I tell you.  And guess what?  All falls down.

China's central planners see Western market economies as a means to their ends, i.e., learn and copy the technology developed from "free societies", then use it to efficiently destroy us and dominate the free world.  They don't care about anything but power and control, and those willing to believe otherwise are useful stooges as they pursue their global designs at our expense.

The "Old Enemy" never went away, it simply changed it's camouflage:

Note that last bit in the Chinese news report above: "Russia is another ally of Iran, with similar policy to that of China toward Iran."

This is key.

"The failure of U.S. policymakers to comprehend the veiled aggressiveness and hostility towards the United States inherent in Sino-Soviet strategy and the belief that the political and economic reforms in Russia and the partial introduction of capitalism in China have foreshadowed these countries' development into real democracies, have eroded the effectiveness of U.S. policies in the foreign affairs, defense, intelligence and counter-intelligence fields.  U.S. policymakers have recklessly accepted the premise that Russia and China are no longer enemies, but are rather potential allies and partners fully deserving of U.S. support.  Only countries like Iran, (pre-2003) Iraq and North Korea - which (ironically, in this context) work secretly with Russia and China - are still considered potential adversaries." - KGB DEFECTOR ANATOLIY GOLITSYN, THE PERESTROIKA DECEPTION, 1995, P.230

Im hoping this is sarcasm, if not its pure stupidity from an idiot who knows nothing about weaponry.  Their rifles arent are actually quite reliable, there are many thousands of rifles in the US imported from China in the 90's which are good solid rifles.  I like my Chinese milsurp SKS alot, it never ever malfunctions and is an excellent semi auto carbine. Their AK's are also quite good. Norinco screwed up and got busted by the FBI for offering to sell real heavy weaponry in the US or alot more would be over here, but it is a great mistake to think that they build rifles for their own military as haphazardly as they do goods to sell to Western suckers.

The Chinese want us to start a war so we can bomb their new empty cities.  This will allow them to rebuild newer empty cities.  Our bombs will take down the new buildings before the shitty construction takes them down fairly soon.

Our endless B-52 strikes will help revive their constructions sector and reinflate their property bubble.  Caterpillar will sell them new CAT's graders and bulldozers.  Endless war is good for business.

Chinese nukes ride atop missiles whose guidance systems were improved thanks to Raytheon, whose technology for missile guidance was sold to the Chinese due to a waiver the Clinton administration provided....just about the time CEO Michael Schwartz, having been refuse waivers for so long, wrote a big check to the DNC.   As with the young Medal of Honor winner who recently sued BAE Systems, we have to ask ourselves this question: Why should we ever let our sons get involved in a war which will have them facing the technical wonders we paid for with our defense research appropriations.  When we have to sell high-end defense technology to our most obvious military rivals just to keep our economy going, we've got a problem.  We're going to have to make a law mandating that the CEO's children or grandchildren have to be on the front line of any such war.  Maybe that will get their consciences going?  "Never happen!" you say?  Thanks for making my point.

Nixon opened China and began an era of US support for China's economic rise, which naturally has led to a military rise. Nixon was doing the corporations bidding, they wanted China as the new non-union workshop for corporate America to boost profits, destroy union shops and eliminate the US middle class. Mission accomplished! Mr. Clinton was nothing but a Nixon want to be and a sex addict who worshiped that thing in his pants.

Along the way Clinton learned that to be the president meant courting corporate America, a thing he did to perfection. I belive corporate America enjoyed the Clinton years even more than the Bush years. Bush/Clinton, so what was the difference?

All China has to do would be to tell walmart they are cutting off shipment.

American underclass shoppers would go crazy when they find out they can't buy the latest junk on TV and will finally riot on the capital hill.

 

Plus the oligarchy who profit off of offshored manufacturing would go all out Koch bros on politicians to stop the "war".

China has those too.

Any way you look at it, China has counters to your toys, factories and has maintained better relations with suppliers.

You're usually capable of rational thought, round eye. Your insecurity in the face of Chinese domination in conjunction with anglo saxon failure is showing.

Even if China can't take on America alone (which it can, because China will not be fighting in the west; the battlefield will be Eurasia. Think American Revolution, supply lines, and other such logistical thoughts), China won't be fighting alone, and I'm certain you understand just how deadly ze germans are.

In a conventional war, the Chinese might do a lot better than you think.  (I use the term "think" loosely).  China the largest standing army in the world, and the factories to back up their military.  The US has no mfg base compared to WWII where we essentially won the war by being able to produce twice as many tanks, ships and airplanes as could Nazi Germany

 

Iran, the next Vietnam, only a bit more global in scale.  I predict disaster for the USA if they try to attack Iran.  Gas will be rationed and will cost at least $10 a gallon, for one thing.

Not to mention that whenever central banking is at the core of problems with a global financial crisis, there tends to be a big distraction aka world war so that a 'Bretton Woods' type agreement can be made amongst the new creditor nations.

Even the jasmine revolutions are having an adverse effect as protests within developed nations have increased. The beast may have many heads (or squid may have many tentacles whatever you prefer), but will soon find it can not defend itself from the concept of inevitability.

The days of manipulation and schemes to move the markets/focus is coming to an end.  Those (all current central planners) who don't learn from history suffer the peril of repeating history-- and being on the wrong side of it.

Demand change within our government, cleanse the democratic process, end the fed, IMF, and Worldbank, and let's start fixing our damn economy already.

old game buddy

 

it was always about controlling trade routes and raw materials.

 

in a hierarchy in monkey society, the alpha males are always stressed out (higher blood pressure) from challenges from younger monkeys and younger monkeys always had to fight for their right to mate.

 

The most benefits go to aloof monkeys who don't give a shit and female monkeys who just mate whoever is in power.

 

No wonder US spends half of taxes on war (superpower paranoia), younger monkeys fighting for their status (China and Russia), the most benefits go to aloof monkeys like Luxemburg and female monkeys like Tahiti.

Since (my guess- 25%?) of the productive Americans (the Americans who are productive) already support multiple redundant armies of parasites:

1- Actual Military or Foreign legion

2- Police state apparatus.

3- Those beaurocrats who are unarmed=  paid by the .gov who pretends to work and does not carry a gun.

4- Welfare State which means those paid by the .gov who do not have to pretend to work

5- Our overseas masters and their little oasis.

So considering 25% of Americans can support multiple layers of harmful parasites and themselves, I think they could support America itself, if they suddenly had to. (like they don't already?)

Zorg: Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Now take this empty glass. Here it is: peaceful, serene, boring. But if it is destroyed 
[Pushes the glass off the table. It shatter on the floor, and several small machines come out to clean it up
Zorg: Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by causing a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business.

Zorg is championing the broken window fallacy perfectly non?

The act of breaking a glass or window, actual loss is the only result. After all the robot maids dance, the only result is productive robot time wasted and a perfectly good item, a glass, is lost.

Digging holes and refilling them would be better, only wasting time (like government work lol) but causing no actual harm. (Of course I'm wrong on that last point)

Zorg is a total idiot and 100% wrong. Destruction, disorder and chaos bring poverty famine and death. If people who think like him would smash their own head that would be the only destruction that actually helps the world.

Work labor and toil build roofs to cover heads from the rain and grow crops that feed hungry mouths.

Have you even read 1984? It was Orwell's scathing indictment of what he saw as the emergence of totalitarian societies throughout the world and how he envisioned the world in the year 1984 (written in 1949). Believe it or not Orwell was not advocating for the dystopia he portrays in his novel. 1984 is didactic rather than exemplary.

Publish the following article:

Macro Economic Aspects of when a person wins two Nobel prizes in Econ will basically save the world.

Chapter 1. I retire
