Meanwhile In Beijing: "For The Respect Of The Motherland, We Must Go To War With Japan"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Anti-US protests sweeping across the entire Muslim world (which are continuing today), besieging, attacking and burning down US embassies, are not the only thing that the central banker policy vehicle known as "the markets" have to ignore in the coming days and weeks. Cause here comes China: "Thousands besiege Japan's embassy in Beijing over Tokyo's assertion of control over disputed islands in East China Sea." And China is not happy: "For The Respect Of The Motherland, We Must Go To War With Japan." Sure enough, where would the US be if the focal point of this escalation in militant anger - the Senkaku Islands - was not merely the latest expression of Pax Americana, and America's national interests abroad.

We already discussed the inevitable implications of the meaningless populist agitation over the contested Senkaku Islands. Here it is playing out in real time:

Protests in China are growing over Japan's assertion of control of disputed islands.

 

Thousands of Chinese besieged the Japanese embassy in Beijing on Saturday, hurling rocks, eggs and bottles with protests reported in other major cities over the territorial dispute in the East China Sea.

 

Paramilitary police with shields and batons barricaded the embassy, holding back and occasionally fighting with slogan-chanting, flag-waving protesters who at times appeared to be trying to storm the building.

 

"Return our islands! Japanese devils get out!" some shouted.

 

One of them held up a sign reading: "For the respect of the motherland, we must go to war with Japan."

 

The protests were not confined in Beijing. In Shanghai, streets around the Japanese consulate, in the were cordoned off on Saturday even as hundreds of police allowed a small groups of people in at a time to protest.

 

"The Chinese government has not done much to quell the inflamed passions of its citizens," Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reported from Hong Kong on Saturday.

 

Protesters are also calling for a widespread boycott against Japanese businesses and products.

 

Liu Gang, a migrant worker from the southern region of Guangxi, said: "We hate Japan. We've always hated Japan. Japan invaded China and killed a lot of Chinese. We will never forget."

 

Japanese media are also reporting that large anti-Japan protests were held in the Chinese cities of Xian, Changsha, Nanjing and Suzhou.

 

Kyodo news agency said protesters attacked a dozen Japanese restaurants in Suzhou.

 

Sino-Japanese ties have long been plagued by China's bitter memories of Japan's military aggression in the 1930s and 1940s and present rivalry over resources and regional clout.

 

Relations between the two countries, whose business and trade ties have blossomed in recent years, chilled in 2010, after Japan arrested a Chinese trawler captain whose boat collided with Japanese Coast Guard vessels near the Japanese-controlled islands of Senkaku, called Diaoyu in China.

 

Anti-Japanese sentiment surfaced anew in the last few weeks after the Japanese government purchased the islands from their private owners.

 

Though Japan has controlled the islands for decades, China saw the purchase as further proof of Tokyo's refusal to negotiate.

 

In response to Japan's purchase, China on Friday sent six surveillance ships into what Japan says are its territorial waters.

And that's how "escalation" always begins.

They don't *have* to export.  They can unpeg from the usd and in a flash, Wall Mart's slogan goes from "Everyday low prices" to "Premium assortment of imported Chinese goods". 

 

And war with China?  Are people insane?  All that accomplishes is having China & Russia responding to every agression in the same strong force.  Except they won't be nuking cities (at first).  They would be nuking the slow-moving navy fleets, which are obvious military targets.

Chink hatred for Nips is real and visceral. Back when I had a few, ahem...social engagements...with Rhett (that's right, Rhett) Chang, one of 2 daughters of then Taiwan ex-Ambassador to UN. Once, just once, I mentioned Japan....and she vented the worst torrent of genocidal venom I have ever heard. Chinese would love to nuke Nipponese. All of them.

My grandfather served in the Pacific theater.  The Japanese were very inhumane and ruthless.  They took no prisoners, be them military or refugee.  Saw many polaroids of the bodies of captured people that the Japanese used as live dummies for bayonet practice.  This was one of the first things they did so that their new recruits could get over the issue of killing, those who refused were executed on the spot.

America's history books have never been accurate.

The failure that's been repeated is to not formally ask for forgiveness.  I'm borrowing from the religious spectrum, but it does have merit.

The US kills and then demands payment!

Given the that US is off killing more people than anyone can possibly know, it is clear that claiming to be a "peaceful nation" ain't enough.

Japan knows that it's over for them, they're just looking to be swept under the US umbrella...  You know, consolidation of warlords...

China better be careful. The Japanese perfected the 'Sneak Attack."

 

The attack on Pearl Harbor (called Hawaii Operation or Operation AIby the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters (Operation Z in planning)and the Battle of Pearl Harbor) was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on the morning of December 7, 1941.

The attack came as a profound shock to the American people....

All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four being sunk. Of these eight damaged, two were raised, and with four repaired, six battleships returned to service later in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded.

Yep, and don't forget Japanese torpedo boats somehow attacked our destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin! No hits were scored nor were any torpedo boats actually seen, but we were pretty sure it's a good reason to start a war.

And never forget how those Japs blew up the Maine.

And swarthy Japs destroyed 3 buildings with their patented Kamakazi attacks in NYC. They're so damn good they got 3 buildings with 2 planes!

Of course they saw it coming.

The Japanese,according to Yamato's flag leftenant,were inspired by

the royal navy's surprise attack on the Italian fleet at Taranto in the spring

of 1941.That battle, in a supposedly secure harbour ,too shallow(they thought) for

torpedo's,and an early Sunday morning attack from carrier aircraft.

Pear Harbor was a carbon copy of what then ,was a very publicised victory,

Caught by surprise ?Only if you could not read a newspaper.

But the Japanese really came for the aircraft carriers but these were -coincidentally?- sent to sea out of reach of the Japanese fleet. Although the attack may have been a shock to the American people, it did not come as a surprise. Around that time, there was a lot of talk about a attack by the Japanese. However, radar was ignored and so were warnings by allied nations which followed the Japanese fleet. Also strange was the fact that alhough there was a threat of a possible attack by the Japanese, many US sailors and soldiers were sent on leave.

Drivel on all sides. At 1:35 PM GMT, 26 November 1941, a German listening station on the Dutch Coast intercepted and descrambled a transatlantic radio-telephone call between Churchill and Roosevelt. Brits had Jap Naval code partly cracked, and WC gave Roosevelt info on upcoming Japanese strike on Pearl Harbor, including targets, date, and composition of attacking force. WC then talked FDR into letting matters proceed. For document and discussion, get a copy of Gregory Douglas, GESTAPO CHIEF: THE 1948 OSS INTERROGATION OF HEINRICH MUELLER (San Jose, 1995), Vol. I, pp. 42-55, 246-54. Later that evening, Roosevelt's co-conspirator at Navy Dept., Adm. Stark, cut prelim orders to get Enterprise and Lexington carrier battle groups out of harbor via bogus air reinforcement missions to Wake and Midway. No question Roosevelt committed High Treason to back-door US into WW II though, from a certain viewpoint, he might receive a few brownie points for getting the ships that mattered most out of harm's way.

I think we can all agree this should be limited to an infantry only battle, to take place exclusively on the island itself.

Finally, Iwo Jima the reality TV series can become a realized dream!

If it becomes too one-sided, it is only honorable for both sides to agree to having unarmed one-on-one single combat, one at a time, at the highest point on the island, to the death. The victor is declared when the other side runs out of volunteers.

Charlie Sheen doesn't know his own Jewish roots so how could you?

 

“My mom is Jewish. Here’s where it gets confusing — we don’t know who her father was,” Sheen said in the phone interview. “But she is, in fact, Jewish. So I guess that would make me Jewish, and my children Jewish.”

 

Hi ex-wife and their kids would appear to be of Ashkenazi descent based on her surname.

 

“And Brooke [Mueller], my ex-wife is Jewish. So I guess I should’ve rolled all that out too.”

Of all the hundreds of members who have commented on Zerohedge over the years, you have always been my candidate as the one with the lowest IQ.  Considering the competition, that's quite an achievement.  Your comment today does nothing to disbuse me of that belief.  In the Female Division, the only competition you might have had was velo babe, but hers probably was just a substance-induced ditzy.  Yours is cerebral.  I'm guessing there's more free space up there than in a Detroit strip mall.  Just don't lay it on too thick, because when it comes time to bet, I'd like to keep the odds in my favor as much as possible.  Keep writing like you did here, and you'll be carrying Secretariat-into-the-Belmont Stakes odds.

Anti-Semitism is never pretty, and it doesn't wear well with age.  It probably isn't anything you want to take with you into the hereafter.  Don't know how much time you have, but if you are as ugly as I suspect, you better get started on cleaning the soul.

Is this a good enough "junk" for your ignorant views?  You asked for it in more ways than one.

"Cosi, why are you being so mean to this nice old lady?

This is not the first time she has pulled the "I'm just a loveable granny, but I can't help myself.  I just hate them nasty scheming Jooos."

It isn't cute, lynnybee.  You think your grandchildren "just love" that part of your character?  You think they might not be ashamed when they are old enough to understand?  I know nice old ladies.  Maam, you're no nice old lady.

Nice normal people?

Perhaps in your world racist morons are normal, but fortunately that is not the world the rest of us live in, or should not be.  Hating a people simply because of their race or creed is not to be tolerated by the civilized.   On too many occasions in human history we have sadly let hate rule the day against the Jews, Armenians, and others.  lynnybee may be just an old coot and not a threat to anything except good taste and decent society, but her attitude is what allows genocide to take place.  "Never again" is a good motto, even though she hates the ones who adopted it.

I don't care if lynnybee believes herself to be a nice old grandma;  she's an asshole and will die an asshole. If she hates others for being something they did not choose to be, and are what they are merely by birth, then it is more than fair to ridicule and dislike her for being something she freely chose to be.

As much as you would like to have it your way, Zerohedge is not an echo chamber.  It is Fight Club.  Your "ilk", has had free run for a long time, driving away most of the sane and rational.  It's time to level the playing field.

If you have "said before that (I) waste too many words and paragraphs", then let me say that you have wasted your time trying to get me to behave according to your rules.  You and those of your addled-brain belief system have pretty much had the run of the place, so a little room---even if it is more than you care to concede---is fair play.  Sorry to fart in your echo chamber.  Deal with it.

lynnybee may be just an old coot and not a threat to anything except good taste and decent society, but her attitude is what allows genocide to take place.  "Never again" is a good motto, even though she hates the ones who adopted it.

I adopt the phrase "Never again", to use against you now.

Never Again will I let you fuck up my life and ruin my country.

Never Again will I let you wage war on my "White" family and my carrier.

I take away your right to use the word "WHITE", because it is a derogatory racist word you use to marginalize me and White people.

Honestly, I think this is a result of China's hard landing. There is no better distractor than 'righteous war'.

Plus, of course:

1. Japan isn't exactly in top shape for the fight.

2. The US isn't exactly in good fiscal condition for a world war.

3. A minimal war gives the US a reason to cancel all those debts to China. (And if they switch sides at some point, the Japanese debts too!)

4. Factories in the US and Europe would get busy again.

1. Japan's Self Defence Force is not weak or a pushover.  Just because they don't go around starting wars doesn't mean they can rain hell down on aggressors.

2. There will never be another true "World War" as the concept of total war is obsolete with the invention of the atom and hydrogen bombs.  The worst it can really get now is proxy wars in non-nuclear armed nations that are not explicitely protected by the nuclear deterrent of other nations and perhaps naval fighting that doesn't include exchange of territory.  Attempts at blockade could easily be met with naval nuclear retaliation.  This type of war isn't any more expensive than simply maintaining a navy, until you have to start replacing ships or the nukes actually start flying.

3. Cancellation of debts with China would likely lead to a prohibition of export of Chinese goods to the west, which would make many things from consumer goods to machine parts totally unavailable.  Remember, we deindustrialized, while relying on their growing industrial base to supply us with goods.

4. Factories in the US will only get busy if regulations on their operation are lifted.  This is independant of any war.  Als remember that since there will be no total war, very few factories will retool for military purposes, and as such, the regulations on them are unlikely to be lifted as they were in WWII.

Yellowhoard, I think you are on to something. I do not expect China to stand by quietly while NATO and America bomb and then conquer Syria and Iran and then set up air and Naval bases along with permanet ground troops at border bases.

Surely Russia and China have seen NATO expand and expand and open new missile bases. What is worse, is Libya was being set up as the CIA training and staging area for Muslim extremist terrorists. Once trained, the terror groups would be ferried into border regions of Russia and China to act as a central force for local Muslims to gather toether with and form really serious Muslim terror operations.

Libya has backfired as some of our former allies have turned against their leaders. Meanwhile NATO uses Libya to funnel trained Muslim extremists into Syria which is in a full blown civil war between a secular government and a population leaning towards Muslim extremism.

But as to CHina and Russia, they are waking up to the NATO game plane, this is why they veto western UN resolutions attempting to open the way for bombing and then ground invasion of Syria. In the case of Iran, I expect Russia and China to move to a stronger support position of Iran. Afterall, once NATO has turned Iran into an oil cash cow for weatern oil companies, and have built air bases and stationed a few armored divisions in Iran. both Russia and CHina will be in a much weaker position. Given the NATO advances, it must be dawning on both nations that everytime they give, NATO will take more.

Tensions would be sky high if the west, via Israel, or the west via NATO began a bombing campaign against Iran, Followed by an invasion of oil producing areas.

CHina has not failed to note the US claim that they are shifting the bulk of the US Navy into their waters to counter any Chinese extension of power outside Chinese borders. The Pentagon has clearly marked China as an enemy, and is shifitng forces to obtain a good attack position.

Once a war kicks off on Iran, there is no telling what will happen.

"few quality jobs out there"

Depends on what you qualify as "quality."  Most labeled that way by TPTB trace to pure BS (like iCrap) or "defense."

REAL quality has to do with that which is applicable to the true fundamentals: Food, Shelter and Water.

"seeing through our propoganda"

what I mean by quality jobs is good income and benefits, until around 2000 anyone could pick up post office jobs, also UPS seemed easier to get; state, county, city, fed jobs.  Now I am not saying Govn jobs are needed, most are just welfare, however the pay, hours, benefits allowed people with no college degree, or crappy college degrees to get jobs.  Also like you say many manufacturing jobs at defense industries, also car companies were attainable.

Now what I see and talking with young people is - if you are on time, dress well, speak well, work well with customers - they are diamonds, small, medium companies desperately need to keep them.  The rest  cannot find a job or keep one, and they are the ones who are permanently unemployable, probably on disability, food stamps for life, medicare etc.  The problem is they are the vast majority.
