    Paul Craig Roberts writes article after article about his disappointment with Putin. Yet he didn't write a single word about Xi Jinpings Taiwan backdown.

    Considering Covid and the war in the Ukraine and sanctions on Russia effecting the price of energy, it will be interesting to see what a bloated military budget will do to a stagnating economy like that of Japan...

    Japanese weapons tend to be very top line in terms of electronics and are generally based on American designs but the improved quality and electronics often mean double the price... in terms of bang for buck they don't do well, but they have very professional men who will not give up easily.

    This is of concern for Russia because a significant military build up and then a general western economic crash could lead to western piracy becoming more open and obvious...

    Would also be an obvious concern for China in terms of cargo trade they rely on and shipping routes to the rest of the world, but I think Chinas warship production programme means Japan would have an uphill battle there... not just numbers but the Chinese ships have modern SAMs and Anti Ship weapons.

    https://www.tasnimnews.com/en/news/2022/12/11/2819626/fm-reasserts-iran-s-sovereignty-over-persian-gulf-trio-islands

    The stance adopted by China , runs against the territorial integrity of Iran . China makes a grave mistake in thinking that it has Iran cornered economically , and that Iran is militarily weak or politically unable to respond , perhaps because they have been listening to CNN too long . This stance is very serious , and if an official stance by China , is definitely a declaration of war . Iran in response can :

    ( 1 ) Stop all joint exercises with China navy in North Indian Oceon .

    ( 2 ) Stop all China navy / trade movement in Indian Ocean .

    ( 3 ) Stop all Belt and Road initiative by China in central Asia .

    ( 4 ) Provide support to oppressed Muslims in China .

    ( 5 ) Provide support to oppressed Tibet people in China .

    ( 6 ) Help India to cut China from Pakistan .

    ( 7 ) Help Vietnam reclaim the South Vietnam Sea from China .

    ( 8 ) Aim a few Nukes at the Chinese Dog eaters in Peking !


    Until the Chinese government apologises and reversed policy , then China remains a threat to territorial integrity of Iran , and is considered an enemy ! Now China can do this , or alternatively figure out more delicious recipes to Cook Dog ! My guess is that , they will review their policy on how to Cook American Hot Dog ! Yes , multi-million dollar multi - nationals of the world unite , they have nothing to loose but smaller nations sovereignty ! Another economic policy , instead of political economy . I hope The Chinese choke on their American Hot Dog . Dog eaters both of them .

    The solution for smaller nations , with smaller economies , that want to remain free and independent is twofold :

    ( 1 )  Nuclear weapons with ICBM pointed at every f***ker in the world . Like North Korea .

    ( 2 ) A self - sufficient economy , independent of trade .

    Either Iran takes the final step and goes nuclear , and abolished the fatwa , and makes sacrifices economically  that are difficult , such as reduced population and economic growth , it will not remain free and independent . Both steps need fresh political forces internally . The world powers , in time will have no choice but to either accept the status quo or get lost . Their choice .

    Xi Jingping is smart, he is bypassing the actors & clowns and talking to the ones that hold the real power in the US, the ones that decide who will be the next US president & actors.
    The big corporations and US elites have become China's interlocutors.
    Give those big corporations a bit of China's market and things might get smoother.
    Never forget that Western leaders have no power, ultimately globalist elites dictate the West's policies.
    So why Xi should talk to the middle man, to the servants ? Better talk to the bosses directly

    It looks like they r slowly getting ready to invade Taiwan.

    Hilarious... and their preparing militarily of course has nothing to do with US military organisations like AUKUS Intended directly to counter China in the asian region... where China is.

    Bit of a self fulfilling prophesy... the US gathers together allies to oppose China and sails through Chinese waters and provokes them by flying near their air space but when China holds conscription... presumably something it does every year... China the aggressor... China the monster.

    I hope China is careful to mainly sink US ships and subs because they are the creator of these problems around the world.
