China is at War, Almost By James Reed
Get ready for war, because China is all set to go in the South China Sea:
“China announced on Friday that it has begun landing bombers on the artificial islands it created in the South China Sea, in preparation for the Battle of the South China Sea. The announcement appeared on China’s Ministry of Defense website: A division of the Air Force’s aviation division has recently organized multi-model multi-bombers such as the -6K to carry out training on islands and reefs to take off and land in the southern seas, tempering the ability to “reach all regions, conduct full-time air strikes, and strike in all directions.”
The aviation division equipped with the H-6K and other multi-type bombers, keeping in mind the strategic requirements of “ideological and political should be strong, have good skills to fight and must be strong in fighting style”, are fully committed to advancing training in the new era and are preparing for the West Pacific and the Battle of the South China Sea.”
The United Nations Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague has ruled that all of China’s activities in the South China Sea are contrary to international law:
The recent victory of the Philippines over China, has enraged the Chinese. Here is some official feedback to give some idea of China’s imperialist mentality:
“Here are some excerpts from China’s Foreign Ministry statement: “First, the South China Sea arbitration is completely a political farce staged under legal pretext. ...
Its purpose is clearly not to seek proper settlement of disputes with China, but to violate China’s territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests and put peace and stability in the South China Sea in jeopardy. The arbitration was conducted according to unwarranted procedure and application of law, and was based on flawed evidence and facts. Such as it is, it will never be accepted by the Chinese people. Nor will it be recognized by anyone in the world who stands on the side of justice. ...
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China solemnly declares that the award is null and void and has no binding force. China neither accepts nor recognizes it.” China’s Global Times contained a bitter, vitriolic editorial: “If the award were to be followed, China would be left with only a few isolated spots in the Nansha [Spratly] Islands without entitlement to any EEZ and could even be deprived of sovereignty of the waters surrounding the islands and islets. The majority of the Nansha Islands waters would be taken up by the EEZs claimed by the Philippines and Vietnam. Besides, China could not continue with its island construction.
The existing facilities might be dismantled by these two countries if they could. With the related resources being owned by Manila and Hanoi in the future, China would have to withdraw its business and other activities from the area. This not only outrageously denies China’s historic rights in the Nansha area and its legitimate maritime interests, but also overthrows the state of de facto control in the region including the Huangyan Island waters. This is ridiculous. The verdict has brazenly violated China’s territorial sovereignty and maritime rights.”
The South China Sea, a vital world trade route is set to become a World War III flash point. We now that this is going to happen and that our phenomenal good luck for peace will one day run out. It would be immoral not to look this reality squarely in the face. Doing so may give individuals some chance of survival. The wise will study what the Deep State did to ordinary people in the last world war, and start prepping for family and maybe local community survival. Think preserving the basics, because Australia could be subject to an EMP attack. John Steele knows more about this that me, so I will direct you to his EMP article.
