US Congressmen: we WILL be at war with China within five years!
The permanent war machine has its next target set.
In the Western world, there’s a growing fear and loathing towards China. This is entirely appropriate, since China is bad and evil: she keeps invading and bombing other nations and setting up military bases all over the world. China has no regard for freedom or democracy, and consistently infringes on human rights, especially those of Uyghur Muslim population. In the West, we are nothing if not extremely keen on the human rights of Muslim populations.
We know how bad China is because our media dutifully informs us about it: every day, all the time. Here are a few recent examples:
For many long years, most bad things in this world were Russia’s fault. However, as West’s gambit to collapse Russia failed, now all bad things are China’s fault. The relentless demonization has had its effect:
As we can see, the same Communist China was more or less OK until 2018, but from that point on it went bad and kept getting worse.
China and COVID 19
Covid pandemic has been perhaps the most fertile ground for growing Sinophobia. It has allowed western ruling oligarchies to project their own totalitarian inclinations onto the evil "CCP." When Sky News Australia published a story about the totalitarian overreach of the Australian Government during the Covid 19 pandemic (Sunday, 6 Jun 2021), titled "Police in Victoria 'crossed a very dangerous and scary line'," the report opened with these words: "This weekend marks 32 years since the Chinese communists ruthlessly crushed the student protests at Tienanmen square, massacring the lives of many and the hopes and dreams of millions of Chinese people."
The massacre at the Tienanmen Square never happened the way it was reported by Western media. But so long as they can still stir Sinophobia into any news story, deflect attention from the real enemies at home and build up a new mass-formation psychosis that could pave the way to a new war, who cares about the details? The report concluded the way it opened: with another reminder about whom we must fear.
China, China, China!!!
It may be that the Australian government has gone totalitarian, but always remember: China, China, China... And it is all true!! Indeed, the whole reason why the lockdowns reeked of authoritarianism in the west is because our governments, in their earnest endeavor to save lives and safeguard freedom and democracy, merely followed China's example. It's a true story, just ask the Brownstone Institute! They're a think tank that's wholly devoted to telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, just like our mainstream media.
Sure, the media may have lied about Iraq's WMDs, about the madman Ghaddafi killing his own people, the madman Assad killing his own people, about Russiagate, a few lies here and there about the pandemic, the masks, the vaccines, the PCR tests, social distancing, etc. Well, they have to do that sometimes, but only for our own good. When it comes to China however, it's all truth and only truth. All our fears are therefore justified, based on cold, hard facts dug up and explained by the West's myriad fearless, independent journalists and truth-telling think tanks.
Chinese-style this, Chinese-style that…
Thus, when WEF grandees at Davos plan digital IDs, individual carbon tracking and total surveillance within the confines of 15-minute cities, everyone dutifully repeats the phrase, "Chinese-style social credit system," even if they've never seen any such system in China. When the British and EU leaders call for censorship so they can protect democracy and freedom of speech, the commentariat decries the "Chinese-style censorship."
And when governments intervene in our free market economies and push trillions into sustainable, net-zero investments, and the total surveillance grid, libertarians lament about "the creeping CCP-style socialism," infringing ou our free world. In short, all things bad derive from China. If only we all could come together and kill China already, freedom and democracy would flourish once more.
They are preparing for it!!
Please excuse my sarcasm, but this is how I felt after viewing Tucker Carlson's interview with Marjorie Taylor-Green (MTG) yesterday. In the last few minutes of the interview, this exchange takes place:
Tucker: Do you think we could wind up in a war with Iran?
MTG: Yes, absolutely. We could easily end up in a war with Iran.
Tucker: What's the appetite for that among the Republicans in the House?
MTG: They all have a strong appetite. I don't know, the ones that I talk about it, they'd rather fight China. I hear that more than Iran.
MTG: Yes, China.
Tucker: It makes ALL of our antibiotics, so how long is that war going to last? I mean, they make everything.
MTG: … All the lessons we learned from COVID, you would have thought that one would have stuck? Maybe we would bring back the manufacturing to our country, at least make life-saving medicines. No, we're going to depend on China.
Tucker: But there are Republicans who want to go to war with China?
MTG: Yes! They are preparing for it. We have to build our military, we have to fund it, we have to build up our manufacturing… Because they say this: we are going to be at war with China within five years.
Tucker: They say that out loud, or they think that at night?
MTG: They say it out loud in our meetings.
Tucker: We wouldn't win that war, that's insane!
MTG: Obviously. Well, I think that's rational thinking that's speaking, but…
Tucker: Sounds like endorsement of China?
MTG: Nope, nope…
Tucker: They really say that, huh?
MTG: Yes, they say that. Out loud.
I found this exchange shocking. Why should even the supposedly conservative representatives of the American people talk about going to war against China? Given that the US is supposedly a democracy, are the voters demanding this war? Did they demand any war at all? Clearly, they did not. And given that the Pentagon knows for sure that the US would lose that war, where does the Congressmen's certitude come from?

War’s real target are the American people
As I wrote here a few months ago, I believe that the real target of any such war would be the American people themselves. A democracy may not need a foreign enemy, but an oligarchy always does. This has been well understood since Roman times. The leading "Neocon" of his age, Marcus Tullius Cicero appreciated that, "In times of war, the law falls silent." This is why Rome’s financial oligarchy invented the “barbarians at the gates” ruse to deflect the people’s rage and send men off to war.

Closer to modern times, George Orwell, who was close to the British ruling establishment, wrote in his novel, "1984" as follows:
"War, it will be seen, is now a purely internal affair... The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of war is not to make or prevent conquest of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact."
Orwell was only partly right: control of resources and colonization of resource-rich territories has always been imperative - as important as preventing social uprisings at home. But his writing is important as it captures the ruling establishment's mindset, which wasn't limited to his fictional novel but had roots in reality.
One of the western occult oligarchy's visible exponents, George Soros wrote about this in his paper, "Toward a New World Order: the Future of NATO," published in November 1993. Soros said that the world order that had prevailed since the end of World War II has come to an end. It was based on two superpowers vying for world domination where, "internal conflicts within each camp were kept frozen by the external threat."
In a multipolar order, a republic based on democratic principles might not have its "internal conflicts" frozen quite so conveniently for the ruling oligarchy. An enemy is therefore essential, and a war would be advantageous to the oligarchy, even if a defeat is all but guaranteed. As Madeleine Albright might put it, "the price, we believe, is worth it."
