"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.

You guys are just being fooled by this TV station sponsored by Fa Lung Kong. It only showed the picture of Zhang without the vedio clip of his talk in the interview. Since most guys here don't understand Chinese, it's a good way to mislead. If Zhang really said that, the word would be all over the Chinese blog space now.

Our government is such a corrupt collection of military and financial scum puppets that no one has a clue as to what might be the truth...  Those who oppose are labled commies or terrorists...  We need to clean up our own act before we start ragging on others... but... since China is screwing us and Iran is run by religious nut-jobs, I am long the new hyper-sonic missiles.

China always bluffs and the west never picks it up. So they will start WWIII with a cruise ship refuirbished as an aircraft carrier, a couple of 'stealth' fighter jets, and a questionable number of missiles, tanks and other? As it is, China does not pose a threat, if it is left alone it can become a threat. However I think that inflation will bring enough social stability that the politburo will be more focused on calming social unrest than declaring WWIII.

We should take Michelle Bachmann's advice and close our embassy in Iran...seriously...she fucking said that.

This bitch belongs in the stupidity hall of fame. The only people more stupid than her and the fucking dolts supporting her for President of the US fuckin A. This bitch isn't qualified to be president of the local PTA in Buttfuck Idaho.

But what really pisses me off is that ABC News called this "Her oops Moment". Oops? Really? How about her " I'm proving that I'm far more stupid and unqualified than anybody ever even imagined I was" moment? It would be more accurate.

Here's the story...:
US Embassy in Iran? Michele Bachmann’s ‘Oops’ Moment

China has been preparing to flex it's might for decades.It's ridiculous how dependent the US has become on China. The instant the US attempts to take a stand against China there will be thousands of corporate lobbyist descending on  senators and congressmen to back down.

You can guess how many of those in the government or those standing to make a profit would send their sons or daughters into a conflict. Their usually the first to send others. Let the Senators, congressmen and cheif executives send thier sons and daughters first.

What a load of shit. Has either China or Russia vetoed sanctions against Iran, nope. Has Russia given Iran the S300, nope. Has China made Iran a full member in the SCO, no. 


This is some pissant piece of shit who probably gets hard at the prospect of ww3.

Yeah but ultimately they will back the sanctions, they wont vetoe them the US does with Isarel, after watering them down (they get what they want while looking like the good guys to the third world).

china will have no choice but to go to war to protect its access to Iran's oil.


China will soon be Iran's only customer


china's propeganda has created a nationalistic mindset in its young male population and they are itching for a war to prove their country is a force in the world; it is now difficult to control this mindset they have created in their people.


No one is really sure who control's china's military, really. They may do what ever they want


China is on the run from SE Asia, E Asia, S Asia, EU and USA because of its aggressive behavior; they reached too far too fast but they cannot admit that without losing their precious face. Look for them to adopt the same "everyone is out to get me" mentality as the iranians.

Iran is not a rational state, it is a facist theocracy. The very first act of the revolutionary government after the fall of the Shah was to lower the age of marriage to nine years. You cannot underestimate the irrational mindset of these shiite islamists. These are a people who believe they will usher in the end of the world and return of the last prophet, blah blah blah. You cannot apply game theory to these people.


Iran believes it is their religious duty to exterminate the jewish people, according to their own statements and shia teachings.When Iran gets a small nuclear bomb they will not hesitate to use it on israel when the time is right. Israel knows this and that the West does not or if it does, doesnt seem to care. Israel will strike first in order to save itself.


2012 could be very interesting year. Or nothing could happen at all. We shall see.

Could Iran destroy Israel with its curent weaponary (including biological and chemcial weapons) yes so whats stopping it from doing it? Self preversation. Now how does Iran having nuclear weapons change that equation?


Why doesnt Iran start with the 25k Jews in Iran who will not leave to go to Israel even with the lure of a 10k stipdend.

No, Israel's air defense and civil shelter program is too advanced and Israel woudl retailiate with conventional or nuclear weapons.


Now how does Iran having nuclear weapons change that equation?


If you dont know how having nuclear weapons changes the math for Isreal you really should not be posting on this subject.


Why doesnt Iran start with the 25k Jews in Iran who will not leave to go to Israel even with the lure of a 10k stipdend.


There are over 40,000 jews still remaining in Iran, not 25,000. This down from 140.000 at the turn of the century.


Jews have been in Persia for over 2700 years, long before the Arabs invaded and brought their new "religion" Islam to Persia. Jews will continue to live in Iran as long as possible to maintain their historical place in the country and preserve what is left of the architecture and gravesites, etc.

Ignore China, they can spit and sputter and cause chaos in the UN along with the Rooskies and generally spout whatever propaganda gets them off, if anybody goes after Iran they'll sit on the sidelines.  If they try to interfere whats a few less ChiCom's? This article isn't worth getting your panties in a wad over!

China - all bark and no bite.  If they had any stones they would use the veto on the UNSC first.  This is propaganda to placate the Iranians.  They will not go to war, they can barely maintain internal order.

Well if I am to believe that some ignoramous is threatening a third world war, first of all I am not suprised given the social mood over the past three years. A little more pain of the global populations and they will be ready to fight just about anyone or for that matter blame anyone but themselves for their problems. After all isn't that how WW1 and 2 began. Rhetoric that turned into all out threats then action.

   Why else do you think Britain pulled out its embassey people. If this takes place you will likely see a western movement against the BRIC's minus Brazil and perhpas India. In that western configuration sits Israel too which will use all weapons to anhilate its enemies.

     I do not like war aof any sort but sadly as a race we are due.

All the US would need to do is stay out of Israels way and quit telling them how to handle things. They are much more able to handle Iran than we are.  We might get a chance to see Israel show Iran why nuclear weapons in the middle east are such a bad thing!
