We've already seen how desperate the Western oligarchs are today, from their actions and rhetorics. This is fundamentally due to the failure of their attempts at starting a war somewhere far from their golf courses, and the breakneck successes of the Eastern Alliance in laying down the hardware, i.e. economic infrastructures, for a multipolar world of peace and harmony among countries willing to join them.
Some of these hardware constructions are being ridiculed upon by Western conscript media like Bloomberg when it said that China "repeats West's mistakes" in Pakistan, because the latter announced in 2015 that it would pump out $46 billion worth of investments into that country.
China Repeats West's Mistakes in Pakistan By Mihir Sharma May 3, 2017 9:07 PM EST
When President Xi Jinping announced in 2015 that China would pump
$46 billion worth of investments into Pakistan, the recipients of his largesse seemed less surprised than one might have expected. The military and political elites of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan have long extracted aid from outside powers in return for keeping a lid on things at home. As far back as April 1948, barely eight months after independence, Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan assured Pakistani military commanders that three-quarters of the new nation's budget would be devoted to defense — fully expecting that the U.S. would underwrite the pledge.
Xi will no doubt tout the Pakistan investments — which include a network of road, rail, power and port projects that are collectively known as the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, or CPEC — at his massive "Belt and Road" conference
later this month. The Chinese argue these projects won't just link China to markets and suppliers from Europe to Southeast Asia, but also promote stability and development in the countries on its periphery. Indeed, even the International Monetary Fund hopes
that China's billions will ease Pakistan's chronic supply-side constraints and perhaps reduce the pressure on the country's development budget.
That, however, reflects the sort of blind optimism to which Pakistan's U.S. sponsors have succumbed for decades. If the Chinese aren't careful, they, too, will find that their money has bought them little more than headaches.
After seemingly showing some level of sympathy for the Chinese investors, Bloomberg resumed to malign China itself.
… China usually struggles
to live up to such big promises, of course. But the numbers being bandied about have already seized Pakistan's imagination. Sectors like cement
have started growing in response, boosting the Karachi Stock Exchange, which was the world's best-performing last year. Real estate prices have increased
Incoherence is one characteristic of trolling for sowing intrigue between parties seeking peaceful collaboration. To complete the recipe, Pakistan needs to be maligned also in the eyes of China.
Don't ignore Pakistan's domestic politics. Already the whole program has become tangled in an internal tug-of-war…
The second lesson is to beware of the Pakistan army. Decades of foreign support have only further entrenched the military at the center of not just Pakistan's state, but its economy and society.
Pakistan is noisy and disputatious enough to make Chinese planners wonder whether the army might not make a better partner
than the civilian government or the private sector. Already, CPEC has exacerbated
civil-military disputes in a country that saw its first peaceful democratic transfer of power only a few years ago. …
Pakistan's reputation must be destroyed as well for having betrayed Washington by talking to China, nowadays. Washington DC is so good, but has fallen victim to these pesky Pakistanis.
The pattern is familiar to many in Washington: Money sent to Pakistan has a habit of winding up further bolstering the army's power. Meanwhile, the civilian government is quietly but rapidly losing enthusiasm for CPEC projects, …
The stronger the army, and the weaker the incentives for the civilian government to open up the economy to countries other than China, the less likely Pakistan is to prosper in the coming decades. There's no question a more stable and prosperous Pakistan is vital for South and West Asia, for China and for the world. But it's far from certain that CPEC will produce one.
Who are these people criticizing what China is doing, as if their own track record could suggest that they know any better?
It's pretty clear that the goal of the Bloomberg article above is to plant the seed of doubt and sow political intrigue between China and Pakistan. The article's incoherent conclusion does not jive with what is happening on the ground in Eurasia, and in what we understand to be the primary purpose of the "One Belt, One Road" — which is an international revival of the ancient Silk Road, which actually did not result into wars and conflicts 2 thousand years ago, but foster the peaceful exchange of goods, culture and arts.
It's the West that has broken, more often than not, every promises it has made with its supposed allies everywhere, and not China. What the West has been doing is use these allies abroad as a leverage for bleeding everyone dry, i.e. US taxpayers sending "aid" to countries, only to flow back to Western companies managing the projects yet actually performed by the locals at a much lower cost.
In exchange for such "favors," these Western companies and governments will then ask for more concessions to further their interests in the targeted region. This is every evident in post-invasion Iraq.
This is the reason why the Western population believes that they have the moral authority to militarily intervene because they truly believe that they have assisted these countries advanced over the years, when in truth and in fact, both parties, i.e. Western taxpayers and the Third World population, have all fallen victims to the whole Globalist charade.
That kind of mob chicanery is now being threatened by the Eastern Alliance's Great Eurasian Project, which is slated to provide more equitable opportunities for its peoples. "Western countries' assistance to Africa is based upon plunder of its wealth. But China's assistance is one of helping the countries' economy."– Julius Nyerere Former Prime Minister of Tanzania
Shockingly for the imperialists, these plans are already being made real for the last 10 years, and they are not in control of its outcome.
Who would have taught that Ethiopia would one day be able to rise from being a mere perennial recipient of Western assistance, i.e. if NGOs are to be believed that they are honestly doing [read: False Philanthropy
by Clinton Foundation], into a vibrant economic hub in Africa?
But critics as they are, they will always find negativity even from positive actions of their pre-classified enemy. So they will sow intrigue by saying that eventually China will control that country from the inside, which is really not the experience of those who are at the receiving end of China's goodwill. But even so, isn't this a lot better than being given weapons of war to kill its own citizens and have its natural resources exploited wantonly?
For helping Ethiopia, China will certainly gain the respect of the Ethiopian population and they will finally see the differences between the Eastern paradigm and that of the West. But this doesn't mean that China will exert undue influence in these countries, according to empirical data.
This is the primary reason why China shifted its mode of providing assistance from an outright dole out like they did with the railroad linking Tanzania and Zambia, where they sent thousands of workers and engineers in 1960s and 1970s, a repeat of what they did in the early years of the US republic, to public-private partnerships, or PPPs.
To put it simply, even the Chinese government saw the danger of allowing its companies to abuse its recipient as it will eventually come back home to roast, as is the experience of its Western counterpart, where the corporations have become so powerful, it's now effectively in control of the US government itself.
So, it's not a complete surprise that the mainstream media outfit like Bloomberg and others…
… have reduced themselves to trolling on what the BRICS are trying to do,
… while the armed component of the Empire is also planning to bomb the hell out of the two biggest protagonists, China and Russia.
Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China Paul Craig Roberts
Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.
In previous posts in recent years I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington's demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion.
It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done.
Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, Deputy Head of Operations of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington in pursuit of global hegemony is implementing an anti-ballistic missile system that Washington believes can prevent a Russian nuclear response to a US pre-emptive attack. http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/04/us-forces-preparing-sudden-nuclear.html
Careful studies have convinced the Russians that Washington is investing in and arranging components that have no other function than to devastate Russia and cripple the country's retaliatory capability. In short, Washington is preparing to launch a nuclear war. https://www.rt.com/news/386276-us-missile-shield-russia-strike/
As I explained previously, the theory behind this insane scheme is that after America's preemptive strike Russia will be so devastated that Russia would not retaliate with any remaining forces out of fear that Washington would launch a second major strike. Washington also plans to use agents in place to assassinate as many members as possible of the Russian government, thus leaving the government in confusion without leadership.
Yes, the insane American/Israeli neoconservatives are this determined to exercise hegemony over the world.
Yes, Washington is sufficiently criminally insane to risk the destruction of life on earth based on the supposition that Washington's offense will work perfectly and Russia and China's capabilities will be so degraded that no retaliatory response will occur.
One might hope that the American and Western populations would be outraged that Washington is so power-crazed that Washington is subjecting all life to such risks. But there is no sign of an anti-war movement. The Western leftwing has degenerated into Identity Politics in which the only threat comes from white heterosexual males who are portrayed as misogynists, racists, and homophopes. The Western leftwing is no longer war-conscious. Indeed, the leftwing has become diverted into such silly irrelevancies as transgender rights to toilets of their choice. The impotence of the Western left is so overwhelming that the left might as well not exist.
Where then is the hope? Russia and China cannot simply sit there and await America's preemptive nuclear strike.
Possibly Washington does not intend a preemptive strike, but only to convince Russia and China that Washington's preparations give Washington so much predominance in a conflict that Russia and China will submit to Washington's hegemony. But this interpretation of Washington's intention implies no less risk. Why would Russia and China wait for Washington to complete its preparations for war, preparations that permit Washington to turn Russia and China into puppet states?
The US military/security complex has clearly prevailed over Trump's intention to normalize relations between the US and Russia, and anti-Russian venom continues to pour out of NATO and Washington's European vassal states. The majority of the American people seem to have accepted the propaganda that Russia is the number one threat to the United States. With propaganda controlling the explanation, Washington's aggressive actions are explained as defense against a threat and not as a policy that will end life on earth.
The chances are high that life on earth is approaching its end. The responsibility lies heavily on the American people, whose success, due to the mistakes of others, made Americans think that they are exceptional and privileged. Unaware of the inhumane threat to all life that is embodied in the neoconservative claim that Americans are exceptional and indispensable, the self-satisfied American public is unaware of the consequences of such hubris. Hubris is leading them, and the entire world, to slaughter in thermo-nuclear war.
The neoconservative claim of American exceptionalism is the identical claim made for Germans by Hitler. If Americans are indispensable, everyone else is dispensable and can be "bombed into the stone age" as one US government official put it, or nuked as Washington intends to do to Russia and China. The claim of American exceptionalism is not accepted by Russia and China. Therefore, the insane, crazed monsters who rule over the West in Washington are bringing life on earth to an end.
And there are no protests. The idiot British, the idiot Germans, the idiot French, Italians, Canadians, Australians, Belgians, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, rally behind the insanity that is Washington.
And so apparently do the American people, a population stupid beyond all belief. Paul Craig Roberts is an American economist, journalist, blogger and former civil servant. He is best known as a journalist specializing in economic affairs from an anti-establishment, liberal conservative perspective.
Fortunately for us, China and the ASEAN bloc continue to employ wisdom in their treatment to the North Korea-US saber-rattling in the Korean Peninsula.
Earlier, China called on its citizens in North Korea to begin packing as war is imminent between the US and the latter, while ceasing all civilian flights to the country.
The ASEAN, on the other hand, has ignored the request of Kim Jong Un for the bloc to issue a statement of condemnation to US aggression in the Korean Peninsula. Instead, Duterte advised Trump during the latter's call to just ignore Kim Jong Un's ballistic missile tests because the kid could not be intimidated anymore.
What this means is, North Korea will eventually reduce its missile tests and temper its rhetoric against the US, knowing that China may not come to its aid at the onset of such a war.
In the meantime, the Deep State will continue, as they always have, to pursue their sinister agenda to start a nuclear exchange, while settling for the minimum atmosphere of conflict
to generate more funds for the military industrial complex.
To deter this scenario, both China and Russia have continued their offensives in the industrial sector by manufacturing their own commercial airliners to compete with Boeing's. Considering the size of the BRICS market, it is easy to forecast that the Western dominance is now compromised.
So, the Western media will continue with their myopic, negative opinions. They simply would not consider that when more people are engaged constructively, and only in economic terms, the less likely they'll go to war. This is akin to the internet where everyone is starting to know each other, and is far more united than ever. This is what these talking heads are wary about — they are being made irrelevant by the minute.
Surely, the established hegemonic control system is crumbling. But to further seal the fate of Western kleptocracy, Russia just flaunted its RS-28 Sarmat ICBMs that is superior to any Western ballistic missiles by at least 15 years.
Russia's RS-28 Sarmat ICBM: Hypersonic Disaster for US Missile Defense Shield 21:44 04.05.2017
Russia is 10-15 years ahead of the US with its cutting-edge heavy liquid-propelled RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Alexei Leonkov, a military expert and commercial director of "Arsenal of the Fatherland" magazine, told Radio Sputnik
It was previously reported that the Krasnoyarsk Machine-Building Plant — the manufacturer of the sea-based ICBMs — is ready to start mass production of super-heavy thermonuclear armed Sarmat missiles (NATO codename name: SS-X-30 Satan 2).
Sarmat missiles are due to enter into service in 2018 replacing the powerful RS-20V Voyevoda ballistic systems (NATO reporting name SS-18 Mod.3 Satan) which have been the backbone of Russia's strategic nuclear forces for more than 25 years. The SS-18 Mod 5 ICBM (NATO reporting name: Satan), GRAU designation R-36M2 «Voyevoda»
The military expert emphasized that Sarmat will serve as a reliable deterrent.
"Let them call it what they want. The [Sarmat] missile system which is about to enter into service is a fifth generation system. Its characteristics are so impressive that our opponents have reason to be afraid of it. According to some estimates, the missile's striking range is up to 18,000 kilometers [11,184.6 miles]. It also has a large number of divided parts, from 10 to 15 warheads, each with a capacity of up to 750 kilotons. They will fly to their target at hypersonic speeds performing maneuvers so that the existing American missile defense system would be incapable of intercepting them," Leonkov said.
But all weapons of war have their own limitations, e.g. nuclear missiles can't be used domestically.
We can accelerate the Deep State's demise if only the so-called Special Forces Patriots, who have learned their fighting skills from the best…
… will finally use what they've learned to eliminate all of the already identified Scourges of the Earth and free the Western population from its despicable and deceptive dogmas, and not just use those ancient fighting skills for the movies…
Why are we advocating for some surgical assassinations?
It's the only feasible and decisive measure to prevent an extinction level event.
