The US sees Russia’s operation in Ukraine as a blessing in disguise: Does China see it as a blessing for action against Taiwan?

The United States is now at war with Russia.

Each country in NATO’s military alliance supplies billions in anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to the Ukrainians (of course, each country in the NATO alliance is owned by the United States, which recently hosted $ 850 million for the cause). Along with these weapons, the alliance has nodded its approval to the world mercenaries to come down on Ukraine to get free passage into western Ukraine and transit through countries directly bordering Ukraine. Privatemilitary.org lists all the private military contractors who are likely to explore their options in Ukraine.

This is also good news for the West’s defense contractors, who manufacture anti-tank / aircraft, handguns, landmines, grenades, artillery, radios; in short, billions in profits will be earned on the war in eastern Ukraine: there never seems to be a downside to their business.

With Russia, the world’s 11th largest economy, essentially cut off from the globalized world, the level of pain for Russian citizens will surely increase over time. But if there are any people whose tolerance for pain is high, then it is the Russians. It shows their history. Yet one astonishing aspect of Russia’s peacekeeping operation – which would prolong a war – is its efforts to occupy the two most populous cities in Ukraine: Kiev and Kharkov. These are the two places where mercenaries will arrive, which inevitably prolongs Russia’s efforts and the economic difficulties of its citizens. As I mentioned in a piece posted on Counterpunch on February 4th, Scenario of a war in eastern UkraineThe Grozny experience in Chechnya must still linger in the veterans of the epic siege and defense.

What’s happening to China?

So what does China think? Their political-military leadership must certainly look at the scene in Ukraine with great interest. A good guess would be that principals of the People’s Liberation Army-Navy-Air Force discuss military operations against Taiwan, which Beijing has always claimed as part of greater China.

Could there be a better time for a Chinese move in Taiwan? With the US / NATO totally focused on Russia and Ukraine, they would be hard pressed to raise much resistance against Chinese military forces moving towards Taiwan. If the Chinese did this, how would US-NATO and Asian allies react.

Taiwan is already fluent in high-tech American weapons: air defense, aircraft, artillery. The United States has trained its military. Re-supplying the island nation during conflict would be difficult at sea or in the air. U.S. naval forces and Taiwan’s naval forces are likely to be severely damaged by land-based ballistic missiles.

Cutting China off from SWIFT and excluding all US Western companies from doing business in China would be a disaster for the citizens of US Europe, who have no tolerance for economic pain. Companies like Walmart and Boeing are so entrenched in the Chinese economy that they could not possibly extract themselves without massive financial support from the US government. Any and all companies doing business in China would ask the US government to get money to support out of the country.

The United States will be in an economic and military two-front conflict with China and Russia, for which it is not prepared. Tactical nuclear weapons are likely to come into play.

It seems that it is time for the world elite and their citizens to watch and listen attentively The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara by Erol Morris. McNamara quotes Nikita Khrushchev, who spoke with John F. Kennedy’s administration during the Cuba crisis. His insight is ignored on the danger of the world:

“We and you should not pull at the ends of a rope that you have tied the knot of war. For the more we two pull, the closer the knot becomes tied. And then it becomes necessary to cut that knot, and what that would mean must I do not explain to you. I have participated in two wars and know that the war ends when it has rolled through towns and villages, everywhere and sowed death and destruction. For such is the logic of war. If people do not show wisdom, they will clash. like blind moles, and then the mutual annihilation will begin. “

Media

Military Information Support Operations (MISO) are in full swing throughout the mainstream media and the World Wide Web. Who to believe? It gets tougher as alternative news sites like Sputnik News and RT News are censored by the West. Any support sent by anyone in the West to the Russian position is mocked and ridiculed by pro-Western experts. For example, the US coup in Ukraine, which overthrew and elected the government there in 2014, no longer exists or does not matter. Nor the long litany of American wars of aggression against; well, choose a nation: Guatemala, Iraq, Vietnam, etc., etc., etc.

One thing is for sure: self-censorship from Western media will only get worse.

The only way to form an opinion is to see as much from Russian and Western sources as is humanly possible. Examples are Newsfront, Southfront, Tass, Pravda.ru, Interfax News, Al Jazeera, and the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, CBS, Center for Strategic and International Analysis. Apps like Telegram and Twitter sometimes contain comments and footage from Ukrainian combat zones.

Relying on one source is not intelligent.

The gloomy horizon of the future

“Therefore, I ask myself, can the apocalypse be averted or mastered? As the term anthropocene suggests, it is already too late. ‘They have planted the wind and will reap the whirlwind,'” the Bible says. have an irreversible and self-defeating character; they tend to expand their effects and tend to eliminate possible countermeasures. are the two distinct forms of existence of our time: neurototalitarianism and global civil war are the life forms that threaten the horizon of the future. ” Franco Berardi, Breathing: Chaos and Poetry, Semiotic Text (s), MIT Press.
