I was writing an article related to this same subject, from a different angle and will finish it, but before I do, I just want to put into historical perspective what is going on in the headlines.
Global capitalism cannot function without waging endless war. Marx and Lenin wrote about this truism and they were absolutely right.
In the United States, by 1940, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s ambitious New Deal economic plan was losing steam and the country was falling back into a deep recession, after barely limping out of the oligarchic gangster bankster asset harvest during the Great Depression, when millions of small, medium sized businesses and people’s homes were scooped up by the 1% for pennies on the dollar, not to mention forcing every citizen to sell their gold to the federal reserve at $15/ounce, then the oil banking elites turned around and made a windfall profit, by repricing it at $25 for the same stuff.
By 1941, America’s dictatorial owners were desperate for a war, in order to start another cycle of harvesting the country and its people. What to do? Why of course, push Japan to declare war on the USA, by seizing all Japanese assets in-country, on 26 July 1941, which were very substantial. Then, the following month, Uncle Sam blockaded exports to Japan for petroleum, steel and scrap iron, almost all of which were being bought from America. That essentially spelled the end of Japan’s industrial production. These are diplomatic declarations of war and Japan did exactly that four months later in Hawaii. As Pearl Harbor as smoldering, Japanese diplomats burned all the documents inside their soon to be closed embassy in Washington, DC, pictured above.
Does this look familiar? It should. We can go back to 1949, when Eurangloland declared war on newly founded, communist-socialist People’s Republic of China, via sabotage, blockades, sanctions and cutting off one-fourth of humanity from conducting commerce and finance around the non-communist-socialist world. As I have researched and written on the West’s Korean and Southeast Asian genocidal wars, they were first and foremost about containing communist-socialist China, along with nonstop attempts at color revolutions in Tibet, Xinjiang and Hong Kong, while using puppet Taiwan as an advanced guard.
But from day one, communist-socialist China continued its steady march of progress, development and people’s democracy into the 20th and 21st centuries, gaining from strength to strength. You would never know this behind the Great Western Firewall, so read The China Trilogy (below) for all the fascinating, blow-by-blow details.
DPRK in 1953, Cuba in 1959, Vietnam in 1975, Iran in 1980, Venezuela in 1992 and Russia in 2000 also gaining their freedom from global capitalism’s brothel of vassal whores, has truly exposed Eurangloland for what it is: a gangster system of piracy, rape, theft, plunder, genocide, occupation and war (as well as a number of other free countries – https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/07/02/my-next-to-the-last-covid-swansong-article-looking-back-what-i-think-has-happened-and-what-is-going-on-today-china-rising-radio-sinoland-200702/).
Like Japan in the 1940s, China is an existential threat to Eurangloland’s dictatorship over all the non-communist-socialist-anti-imperialist world, thus we see history is repeating itself. As China has gotten wealthier, more advanced and successful around the world, Western postwar hopes of turning it into another balkanized Indonesia, Congo or Columbia are getting more and more delusional.
Not counting Eurangloland’s routine, 24/7 efforts to destabilize China with psyops, subterfuge, propaganda, fake news and color revolutions, here is a short list of what the prior has recently done to the latter, in hopes of destroying the Chinese people’s communist-socialist way of life. Notice the rapid acceleration as time goes on.
Timeline of Eurangloland’s recent casus belli against China
- 1992-2014: seven deadly attacks in China, by US trained terrorists being sent in from Waziristan, Pakistan and after 2001, from Afghanistan, in support of the West’s ongoing color revolution to split Muslim Xinjiang Province from the PRC.
- 2003: Likely US bioweapon SARS hits China. Hundreds killed and thousands sickened.
- 2006-present: thirteen Chinese scientists and researchers have mysteriously died or been arrested in the United States (https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/px8CoQqZ7JBqIKMk_h0H1A).
- March 2008: The CIA organizes a terrorist attack in Tibet, right before the Beijing Olympics, to try to get countries to boycott the Games, like the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. It failed.
- 2011-present: Obama’s and Hillary’s laughable Pivot to Asia begins nonstop, imperial rooster strutting, with US warships sailing and aircraft flying right up to China’s territorial waters in the South China Sea, ongoing.
- 2014-present: Eurangloland begins its “Umbrella” color revolution in Hong Kong, to destabilize China. It slowly petered out and lied dormant until 2019 (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/08/26/baba-beijing-is-sick-and-tired-of-the-west-using-hong-kong-to-overthrow-the-cpc-china-rising-radio-sinoland-170821-2/).
- 12 August 2015: Tianjin Port was most assuredly attacked using two miniature nuclear bombs, with the goal of taking out China’s main supercomputer center nearby. If you don’t believe me, read my well-researched exposé (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2015/08/19/tianjin-port-explosion-shuts-down-chinas-tianhe-1-supercomputer-44-days-radio-sinoland-15-8-19/), as well as these photos of the explosions (https://www.veteranstodayarchives.com/2015/08/26/the-nuking-of-tianjin-frame-by-frame-analysis/). Baba Beijing did not take the bait and hushed up the likely truth, to avoid a hot war.
- 2016: American THAAD missiles were installed in occupied, puppet South Korea, pointed at DPRK and China, as well as Russia.
- March 2017: ZTE is fined $1.2 billion for bogus charges of violating the United States’ illegal sanctions against Iran and DPRK.
- With Donald Trump being selected by the oligarchic deep state to ascend to the White House in January 2017, they had the perfect demagogic actor to pound the war drums. The global stage is set to ramp up causus belli against China.
- February 2017: a new strain of H7N9 bird flu hits China, devastating its poultry industry and it has to buy US poultry products to make up for the shortfall.
- January 2018-present: Trump declares a trade war and unilaterally slaps billions of dollars of tariffs on Chinese imports. More threats and sanctions are piled on over the ensuing months (https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/13/timeline-of-trump-china-trade-war-and-trade-deal.html).
- February 2018: A new strain of H7N4 avian flu hits China, crossing over to humans, sickening thousands and killing 600 citizens. China again has to import large quantities of US poultry goods, due to the shortfall.
- June 2018: H7N9 strikes China again, unnaturally in the summertime. Millions more of the national flock die or has to be killed, forcing China to buy even more US poultry products.
- August 2018: China is hit with African swine flu, the same strain that started in Georgia, where it then spread through anti-imperial enemy Russia. Tbilisi, Georgia is where the United States has its big Lugar Bioweapon Laboratory (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/02/10/pentagon-bio-weapons-by-dilyana-gaytandzhieva-www-dilyana-bg/). This flu spreads like wildfire across the country, very unnaturally, wiping out 40% of the world’s largest swine industry. China is forced to import huge quantities of pork products from the US to make up for the losses.
- September 2018: USA sanctions China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), for buying Russian jet fighters and missile systems.
- 1 December 2018-present: US uses its puppet vassal Canada to kidnap Huawei CFO Meng Wenzhou, based on bogus charges of violating unilateral, illegal sanctions against Iran. She is also the daughter of Huawei’s founder – communist, Mao Zedong-adoring Ren Zhengfei (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/05/14/ren-zhengfei-founder-of-huawei-says-my-mentor-is-chairman-mao-zedong-im-not-surprised-are-you-china-rising-radio-sinoland-200515/).
- December 2018-present: USA begins its pathological attempts to globally sanction and blockade the leading telecommunication and 5G giant, Huawei, measures that are spiraling upwards as I write. Scores of other Chinese tech companies, business and government leaders are also sanctioned, and ongoing.
- March 2019-present: The West’s color revolution is taken to a new, violent level in Hong Kong, with massive destruction of private, public property, thousands of citizens attacked and the economy wrecked – aided and abetted by puppet Taiwan (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/12/25/taiwan-hong-kong-ukraine-color-revolutions-are-swastika-sunflowers-shoved-in-your-face-china-rising-radio-sinoland-191225/).
- May 2019: China has an unnatural, massive infestation of armyworms, across 14 provinces, causing huge crop losses. It showed all the classic signs of entomological warfare (EM). China has to increase its purchase of US agricultural goods to make up for the losses (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/05/02/coronavirus-bio-warfare-cuba-by-thomas-powell-www-bioweapontruth-com/).
- 5 August 2019: US declares China is a currency manipulator, an imperial sledgehammer used to extort countries.
- October 2019: US sanctions 28 Chinese tech companies for doing business in the Chinese province of Xinjiang.
- December 2019: Likely a US bioweapon attack, coronavirus hits China, causing huge economic losses for the people, thousands dying and many more sickened. The Western Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM ) moves into high gear to tar the Chinese with the virus (Trump’s Kung flu ad nauseam), even though all evidence points to it beginning in the US and/or Europe (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/03/07/its-all-here-the-china-rising-radio-sinoland-covid-19-chemical-and-bioweapon-file-film-and-tape-library/).
- January 2020: Hunan Province, where the coronavirus was first detected in China, is struck with a new strain of H1NI bird flu, causing flock losses and forcing it into more poultry purchases from the US.
- January 2020: Taiwan’s re-elected president, Tsai Ing-wen, is emboldened by the US ignoring its treaty obligations with the PRC, going back to Nixon’s history changing visit there in 1972. She pushes even harder to secede, risking a crippling response from Baba Beijing.
- April 2020: Australia loudly pushes for an investigation into the origins of coronavirus, while strongly pointing towards China as the culprit. Always ready to bend over 24/7 and happily take Uncle Sam’s imperial member in the backside, Aussies risk their economic wellbeing by precipitating a trade war, since 33% of its exports go to China.
- 1 July 2020: American puppet vassal UK offers three million Hong Kong residents British citizenship.
- 6 July 2020: US sanctions Xinjiang officials and the provincial police department.
- 6 July 2020: Trump administration issues an order to revoke the visas of all foreign students who are only taking online courses, due to the imposed coronavirus lockdown. This was clearly meant to target Chinese students, since they are more numerous than the next six nationalities combined (https://www.statista.com/statistics/233880/international-students-in-the-us-by-country-of-origin/). The negative reaction of US universities was so vitriolic, that it was rescinded days later.
- 14 July 2020: Trump is given power to sanction all Chinese officials who supposedly “limit Hong Kong’s autonomy”, after Baba Beijing legally passed a security bill that the city never did for the last 23 years, and for which it was treaty bound to do so.
- 14 July 2020: Trump signs an order to remove Hong Kong’s special trade status.
- 14 July 2020: US toady lapdog Britain orders all Huawei 5G equipment to be ripped out the country’s IT infrastructure, delaying cutting edge telecommunications for years, while costing businesses and citizens billions of pounds in increased costs. Go figure. It’s pure imperial genius!
- 16 July 2020: Trump & Co. begin discussing banning any member of the Communist Party of China (CPC) from traveling to the United States, almost 90 million Chinese citizens.
- 20 July 2020: Yankee step-and-fetch-it England cancels extradition treaty with Hong Kong, making the UK a haven for HK criminals.
- 21 July 2020: US Congress passes a law to ban the Chinese social media app Tik Tok, from all government equipment.
- 21 July 2020: US sanctions 11 Chinese companies for doing business in the Chinese province of Xinjiang.
- 22 July 2020: US government gives Baba Beijing 72 hours to close down China’s consulate in Houston, Texas, a major city with a huge ethnic Chinese population to serve, as well as across Southwest USA. Diplomats there are being forced to burn all internal documents, to keep them from falling into Uncle Sam’s hands. This has not happened in the US, since Japan had to do the same thing, when the US declared war in December 1941.
- 22 July 2020: Chinese embassy in Washington, DC receives bomb and death threats. Trump announces he may close more consulates.
- 23 July 2020: Just as I was about to hit the “publish” button, joining Yankee puppet vassals UK and Australia, imperial whore wannabe France just announced that it too will commit telecommunications suicide, by removing all 5G Huawei gear (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-huawei-5g-security-exclusive/exclusive-french-limits-on-huawei-5g-equipment-amount-to-de-facto-ban-by-2028-idUSKCN24N26R), proving the French know how to destroy themselves for the 21st century. Chapeau, mes compatriotes!
This is by no means a complete list.
Friends, fans and followers of China Rising Radio Sinoland, imperial Eurangloland has extorted and attacked the Chinese people with far more than what the United States did to Japan in 1941. Western global capitalism has been declaring war in China since 1949, but the unprecedented level of aggression is spiraling upward at an alarming rate, especially during the Trump administration.
The only reason Baba Beijing has kept its Confucian-Daoist-Buddhist-Communist cool is the last thing it wants is a hot war, which would only hurt this defiant, independent nation of 1.4 billion citizens, and their long term objectives for the 21st century. Japan was already an expansionist, colonial-imperial power and had no choice but to go to war against the US, in a calculated, Hail Mary attempt to remain Asia’s regional hegemon. China has no colonial or imperial DNA in its historical blood and will avoid a military conflict at all costs, for the safety and progress of its people.
Nevertheless, global capitalists clearly realize that they cannot compete fairly and honestly with communist-socialist-anti-imperialist countries. This has been true since the Russian Revolution in 1917 and explains why the prior has spent trillions of dollars/euros, and caused endless wars and occupations to destroy the latter since then, ongoing.
China is the reigning heavyweight champion of this group, getting stronger and building win-win bridges of cooperation with anti-imperial and Western ally countries alike, via the visionary Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), BRICS Bank, etc. What we are seeing, including the global and likely Western oligarchs’ planned Covid hysteria, is a final, desperate lunge by Eurangloland to push China into a hot war, because war is the one economic model that capitalism needs to survive.
Ultimately, after 500 years of rape, plunder, theft and genocide, we are witnessing the final paroxysm of Western colonialism, flailing like a wounded, lupine vampire.
When down, humanity’s 1% have always been able to keep up their tyrannical dictatorship over us, by pulling violently on the levers of war. Will it work this time around? Only China, Russia, Iran, DPRK, Venezuela and all the other free and independent anti-colonial peoples of the world can stop Eurangloland.
Will global capitalism continue to resort to germ-entomological-chemical and nuclear weapons to maintain its tyrannical dictatorship? Shudder the thought.
Based on the spiraling trend upwards, it looks like a cataclysmic confrontation of civilizations, between Western evil and anti-imperial goodness, may be coming to a head sooner than we think.
