If it looks like a fish, swims like a fish, and smells like a fish, chances are that thing in front of you isn’t a giraffe or an orangutan.
Likewise, when a nation looks like it’s preparing for war, acts like it’s preparing for war, and speaks like it’s preparing for war, it’s very likely that nation is anticipating a war in the very foreseeable future.
The People’s Republic of China, the PRC, that ancient land of 1.3 billion inscrutable people, hasn’t quite been speaking in warlike terms but every other indication is that it is readying itself for a cataclysmic conflict from which it alone will emerge still standing.
Realistically, the only opponent capable of taking China on is the only superpower left on the planet, the United States of America.
Am I predicting a coming thermonuclear war between the PRC and the USA? Yes. And I further believe our country is well aware of that future and is doing nothing substantive to prevent it from happening despite its probability.
Will China initiate that conflict, as in a Japanese-style sneak attack? I highly doubt that mainly because there’s no need.
China is now in a position to wait until we collapse economically and then gradually infiltrate itself into our affairs even more so than it already has.
If and when push comes to shove and the conflict evolves into a military face-off, the Chinese know they have two strategic advantages, their population which is quadruple ours and their land mass of 3.7 million square miles, a 700,000 greater square mile area than our lower 48 states.
Aside from what’s been in the news for the last few years, reports of China pouring billions of yuan into building up its military and developing its first viable navy in modern times, its stranglehold on America’s treasury and domination of our domestic product supply, its initiatives in Africa and Latin America, and its overt moves to displace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, two other recent developments have come to light that may clarify the Chinese intentions.
Military strategist and China expert Larry M. Wortzel testified before Congress last week and “set off alarms” with that testimony.
“Chinese researchers at the Institute of Systems Engineering of Dalian University of Technology,” Wortzel said, ”published a paper on how to attack a small U.S. power grid sub-network in a way that would cause a cascading failure of the entire U.S.”
The author of the paper “said he and his professor had indeed published “Cascade-Based Attack Vulnerability on the U.S. Power Grid” . . . But said he had simply been trying to find ways to enhance the stability of power grids by exploring potential vulnerabilities.
“We usually say ‘attack’ so you can see what would happen,” he said. “My emphasis is on how you can protect this. My goal is to find a solution to make the network safer and better protected:” http://nyti.ms/9ZmwuM
That presupposes that anyone would believe first, that any research conducted in China would be pure research free of government oversight and direction and second, that the researchers would be looking out for the safety and protection of America’s power grids.
Anyone believing that mishmash would be an excellent candidate for purchasing the Washington Monument.
Another development is RNHEF.
RNHEF is the stock symbol for Renhe Commercial Holdings Company Limited, a “cheap Chinese based stock in [Forbes] list of THE BEST STKS TO BUY FOR 2010. . . It builds air-raid shelters for Chinese gov. and has no debt and pays 6 % div. . . They have NO competition and get this. They use the air raid centers (all located UNDER major hwys for shopping malls and get 80% of stall/shop rents:” http://bit.ly/dpf1Xx
That Stockhouse analysis considers RNHEF “a no brainer” for purchase.
It’s also a no brainer for any thinking individual: Why would China be building a massive millitary strike force, extending its reach throughout the globe, manipulating the U.S. economy, plotting an attack on our electric grid, and building fall out shelters?
The Chinese may practice inscrutability but some things are far from mysterious.
