China and America WW3 in worming up !!!
The warning lights and the alarm bells have been going off for some time now. It is well established that there would be some conflict or a deterioration of relationships between the two powers. Around 2009 it was unmistakable and this prompted some firm policy adjustments in America; in Washington DC.
President Obama believed that this kind of global realignment was a natural historical progression. He argued that while America might “sunset” in various areas, China could be “managed” in such a way as to derive a kind of “partnership” where both the United States and China would win and profit in a kind of “give and take” international relationship.
For a while, it appeared that the Thucydides Trap was avoided.
Donald Trump ran for President. His policy platform was MAGA, which means “Make America Great Again”. His chief rival target was China and he pledged to  bring back American jobs (from China),  stop the dependence on imported products (from China), to  rebuild and increase the size of the military, and  re-work and realign relationships with other nations for American self-interest.
Once Hitler came to power he wanted to make Germany great again. His chief villains were the Jews. And his actions were all about eradicating the Jewish treat to Germany.
It's not that I am equating Trump with Hitler. That meme is so 2015. It's just that all nationalistic movements require an enemy to galvanize the people against. In the 1930's it was the "Jews against Germany".
Today it is China against America.
So Trump is in office, and he’s realigning all sorts of issues into his vision for the “perfect” world order.
Americans, tired of the social and economic onslaught and minimizing behavior of their leadership for the last three decades flocked to him. They attended rallies where he would proclaim that he would make America great again, put Hillary Clinton behind bars, and bring jobs back to America.
He won the election.
Once taking over the reins of power, he staffed his administration with “neocons”, individuals with a particularly warlike views and ideas.
Basically a word synonymous to names like John Bolton, Pompeo, Dick Cheney, Elliott Abrams, Robert Lighthizer, Peter Navarro etc. A small, but constant clique in the US administration that is responsible for most of the recent US military invasions around the globe. To quote neocon Pompeo: 'I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole'
In sort order, once he won the 2016 election, he immediately, from day one, started his program of MAGA. He did not waste time. He did not pause. he did not relax.
America was (from the top down) full-on MAGA.
Key to that program was the suppression of China. Much of which involved actions and activities that were NOT reported in the American press.
Donald Trump “hit the ground running”. He wasted no time in building up his team, staffing it with aggressive neocons and working on a strategy to suppress China. It’s an implementation of his campaign promises; Make America Great Again.
Unlike President Obama, Donald Trump embraced (or fell into) the Thucydides Trap.
The goals were simple;
Reclaim American “greatness” in all fields, in all areas.
Establish dominance in the Geo-political arena.
Suppress China in such a way that they would always be “under the control or authority” of the United States.
Do whatever is necessary to accomplish the above.
In so doing there were some issues that needed to be addressed and some resources that he had access to.
There were things that China was involved in that were threatening the level of control that America had over China. Trump needed to collapse or mitigate those issues quickly. If he did not, China’s rise would pass the point of no-return. In the collective minds of the neocons, it was now or never.
The primary issues at stake were…
Relationships in Africa. China was building relationships based on jobs, trade, and social improvements. The time-honored American technique of providing wads of cash to third-world dictators was no longer effective. This was giving China unique mineral and resource access, that America was denied.
Belt and Road Initiative. As long as the only way that China could maintain trade was via the sea-lanes, the United States could threaten the sea-lanes and completely collapse the ability of China to conduct trade. This threat has been real and substantive. The Belt and Road Initiative would be a land trade route. Completely bypassing the sea-lane trade routes, and rendering the American Naval threat moot.
Taiwan. Taiwan is a client state of China. Yet the American media presents it as an independent nation in the hopes that once China is weak, an American invasion of Taiwan can occur. The reason why this is so critical is that the United States needs a “safe haven” from whence to launch ground forces. Taiwan is the perfect staging location. Make no mistake, an invasion of China is a long-term dream of the neocon cabal.
Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a financial and technical hub, not to mention a gateway to the rest of Asia. As long as Hong Kong is stable, Europe will continue to conduct business with China. Therefore creating a unstable Hong Kong would effective disentangle Europe from China.
Work on a plan to suppress China, for certain, was formulated prior to President Trump’s inauguration.
No one knows the true extent of the planning, or any details of the discussions involved. However, we can pretty much recognize that the people who helped formulate this war-suppression-strategy were…
All of these people advocate for military intervention to accomplish United States objectives.
The only snag in their desires is military. You see, the thing is that every single simulation where the American military tries to take on China, the United States loses. Often, depending on the scenario, quite badly. They cannot ignore this fact.
So a direct military campaign was not the first choice of the “task team”.
Instead they had to come up with a scenario or a plan that would be suppress China and meet all the criteria as discussed, while at the same time avoiding armed military conflict with a HEALTHY VIBRANT China. The Trump administration was faced with a “first”. Just how to suppress China, without using any overt military resources that might result in a nuclear response?
They sat down and came up with an idea.
The basic plan
If China could be “broken” with all sorts of internal strife, starvation, misery, distress, and trouble, China would weaken. As a result, the United States could capitalize on that situation. This would, if properly handled, result in forward staging bases on Taiwan, with a naval harbor there.
Create uprisings and strife at the two gateways for the Belt and Road Initiative.
Create Chinese starvation by decimation of all pork, chicken, wheat, and grain industries.
Offer CIA “incentives” in African nations.
An anti-China propaganda campaign would galvanize Americans against China and it’s products.
“Incentivize” American companies to bring factories back to America.
An anti-China technology campaign would destroy existing business relationships in Europe and across the globe.
A pandemic that would suppress China, but would ignore America.
Then prep for a hot war with the establishment of staging bases on Taiwan.
This is an eight-year plan, and assumes two complete terms as President for Donald Trump.
Additionally there is the possibility of a successful successor that could implement successive states in a complete global realignment to fit the long-term neocon plan.
This plan of course is secret / confidential. It’s not advertised. Though, it was moving forward with great rapidity throughout the first term of Donald Trump in office.
I’ve covered all the elements in other posts in far greater detail. There you can see the details. Links are as provided herein.
This is just an overview.
Create strife in HK. The “pro-democracy” protests were implemented by NED / NID insurgents under the guise of being “journalists”. <HERE><HERE><HERE>
Create strife in Xinjiang. Radicalized and CIA trained Muslim insurgents creating “fifth column“ activities. <HERE>
Forced Starvation. Destruction of the pork industry via drones and aerosol viruses, destruction of the chicken industry, the wheat and rice industries, and multiple waves of germ attacks. <HERE>.
African Incentives. This is ongoing. Though lately a number of nations are demanding that China pay billions of dollars to them for COVID-19 damage. I cannot help but see a CIA hand in all this.
Incentivize American Businesses. Enormous amounts of money has been handed to American companies throughout trumps first term of office, the greatest amounts came during the 2020 “COVID bailout”. However, no companies have shown any interest in returning operations to America.
Anti-China propaganda campaign. This is hot and heavy. Apparently it’s working a full 30% of Americans hate China and blame it for all the American ills.
Anti-China technology campaign. Well the arrest of the Huawei President and the suppression of 5G technology is only the tip of the iceberg. <HERE>.
A Pandemic that would suppress China but ignore America. This is the highlight of the plan and really interesting. Three strains. A, B, and C. All unleashed on the world. Lethal strain B is for China. It is dangerous and lethal. However, Americans get the A virus. This virus is mild and safe. It self inoculates (or was intended to). It is designed for Americans to have “Herd Immunity”. <HERE>
Establish American Bases on Taiwan. Ongoing and not public.
If things went as planned…
If things went as planned, China would be a poisonous stew of conflict with all sorts of internal troubles, starvation, insurrections and conflicts. The workers would be sick and dying and the anti-China propaganda campaign would scare companies from trading (or continuing to trade) with China. No hot war would ever be necessary.
The COVID-19 germ bio-warfare released at the most vulnerable time for social communicability on CNY eve, would completely turn China into a basket case.
Hospitals, civil services, and all government would be overwhelmed. People would be clamoring for peace and stability, and that would open up an opportunity for the United States to begin harassment in the area around Taiwan. HK would be in turmoil. Military actions would fracture Xinjiang, and alliances would crumble.
If you recall, in February and March 2020, two carrier battle groups were being sent to that area…
… up until they had to make emergency stops at Guam for COVID-19A lethal outbreaks.
By the time the end of the Summer rolled around, American intervention in Taiwan would be in action. Success would flood the airwaves, whether true or not, and trump being a “War President” would take complete control of the government with landslide victories in both Congress and the Senate.
Then with a solid control of the Washington apparatus, the subsequent phases of action could proceed. Which would of course mean military troops, on the ground, to “liberate” the Chinese yearning for “freedom” and “democracy”.
Things didn’t go as planned
No, things did not go as planned.
They never go as planned.
Someone should tell these neocons that you have to have a few “projects” “under your belt” first before you try implementing them. Things never go according to plan and if you go ahead and kick a dog, expect him to snap at you and bite your arm. China will not watch while all this happens and not train, prepare, plan and take action.
While all this was going on, China knew what the neocons were planning. China and Russia shared intel data, and combined saw that America was an active and real threat. If China collapses, Russia would be next. If Russia collapses, China would be next. So what did they do?
Russia and China signed military self-defense treaties. They also watched with some degree of hope that the intel information was incorrect.
But it wasn’t.
Trade. The “Trump Trade Negotiations” were all a “smokescreen”. No one in the Trump administration wanted any kind of agreement. None. Not at all. <HERE><HERE>
Factories Returning. Well, no factories are returning to America. America is over regulated, the wages are too high, the quality of worker is too low, and the corruption at the state and local levels are absurd. <HERE><HERE><HERE>
Famine. The attempt to destroy the Chinese food supply proceeded as planned. It’s just that the image of what China actually is was completely out of alignment with what the Trump advisors expected. So even though the assaults went as planned, the were unable to induce a famine. <HERE><HERE><HERE>
Africa. Africa is still in play.
Propaganda. The Anti-China propaganda campaign seems to be working, though it’s giving everyone fatigue. On more than one occasion I have seen people complaining. They say “Get this shit off my feed. Heck you need waders to plow through all the muck.”
Technology. The Anti-China technology campaign is hit and miss. Certainly the drums are beating and there are skirmishes. Huawei, however is still in business, and many non-American companies, and nations are moving with the Chinese 5G model.
COVID-19. It is the pandemic where China decided to stop playing “defense” and go on the “offense”. And the Trump administration did not expect China to be so aggressive, and proactive. Let’s talk about this…
The COVID-19 bio-weapon attack
So America launches a very dangerous bio-weapon attack on Chinese New Year eve. The timing was such that it would have spread like a fire inside a bone dry barn filled with hay. If China did not take immediate action, the entire nation would have turned into a complete “basket case”.
But that is not what happened.
China went on full military alert. It went DEFCON ONE on CNY eve. Everything went under lock-down, and then China took aggressive action on an entire slew of areas. Obviously the Chinese intel knew something was up, and had more information about what was going on than what we have been led to believe. China killed the pandemic and stopped it right in it’s tracks.
But that is only part of the story.
The entire time while China was under lock-down, people were dying, and the anti-China propaganda campaign was reaching a fever pitch, China took action.
COVID-19B Lethal – For Chinese to get sick and die from.
COVID-19A Safe – For Americans and their allies to build up “herd immunity” to.
So, China made a dangerous version of the virus.
A virus based on the safe version that the Trump neocons wanted to infect all of America with. A virus that was/is being disseminated all throughout the United States thanks to Trumps advisory that everyone does not need to wear masks, or use social distancing. Don’t you all think that it was weird that he would insist on no one wearing masks? Don’t you think that he wanted groups of people to conjugate together? Don’t you think this was strange when there were just terrible videos out of China?
China took action. They turned the “immunization” virus lethal.
COVID-19A Lethal – Non-immunization version, lethal, sent back to America.
And that is what is unleashed in America today.
Yes. We are in World War III
Today the world is wracked with three strains of a bio-weapon designed, concocted in America and unleashed by the neocons in the Trump administration.
COVID-19A – Mild. Designed to grant immunity to Americans.
COVID-19B – Lethal designed to kill Chinese.
COVID-19C – A variation of B, designed to target Iran and North Korea.
Oh, and by the way. none of the viruses in the COVID-19 family grants immunity. Once you get a mild strain, you are more prone to get a more dangerous strain.
The world is FUCKED.
And so, it’s all a complete FUBAR. Yup. That’s just exactly how and why you know that it is an American military operation. Name one American military operation that was not FUBAR. Name one!
Military slang from WWII, fubar is an acronym for "fucked up beyond all recognition ". " the house was completely fubar."
-Urban Dictionary: fubar
It’s a military operation. That is for certain.
No it is not yet “hot”, but it sure is “warm”. People are dying and more people have died so far in America that during the Vietnam war. Just because nuclear weapons are not yet in play does not mean that it is not going to happen.
These neocons do not give up. They have a near religious vision of the world where America controls everything and everyone. Where American law is obeyed everywhere and where “American greatness” defines the human race.
Many of Trump's followers view his role as near religious. They believe that God and Jesus are blessing all of his actions and that he can do no wrong.
Many of Trump’s followers view his role as near religious. They believe that God and Jesus are blessing all of his actions and that he can do no wrong.
They even made a coin to commemorate this event, or at least to keep the Wuhan bat-eating Chinese narrative alive. What? You don’t think that this is all part of a long-term, well-thought-out plan?
What can I say?
The coincidences in America during this period of COVID-19 coronavirus are astounding!
As I have mentioned before, the various world-lines are all interconnected with rapid trans-reality communication. This leads to some odd and strange phenomena. Nothing is more poignant than when it is associated with a global situation or catastrophe. As is the case with the COVID-19, coronavirus.
The time-table is still in play.
Trump is right now, according to news reports, making “arrangements” for a transition of power if he were to lose the election. I have no idea what that means, but if the players like Pompeo are still in office, then that means that the situation will only get worse. They will continue their plans.
I expect things to go “hot” around 2023.
This is for certain if Trump gets a second term of office, and a 50% chance of certainty with someone else in office.
I also predict that it will not go as any one expects, and that America will be devastated, the globe would we completely turned on it’s head, and China would suffer.
Let’s hope that this prediction does not transpire.
Or, I could just have an over active imagination. Right?
To paraphrase some of the responses I have read…
Everyone knows that America would never even contemplate such a thing. After all, it’s currently fighting eight wars, has 800 military bases and 14 carrier battle groups. America is way too busy to devote time and effort to fighting China. Why fight China when it’s much easier to fight in Somalia, Yemen and Syria?
And Trump and his advisors are fine God-fearing folk. Pompeo and Bolton would never advocate a war against China. The idea that a neocon wants war is well…silly.
There is no such thing as The Thucydides Trap.
Trump wants a fair trade arrangement where everyone wins, and the Chinese are just evil, bad and eat bat soup. They are filthy foul liars. They steal and a scourge of the planet.
With my personal duty out of the way of attacking the trolls and hopefully driving them back under the bridges from whence they came, I would like to ask if there is any way to "strip a country of its sovereign immunity" without a war? I mean, isn't that the whole point of wars? To eliminate or protect a nation's sovereignty? Isn't trying to eliminate another country's sovereignty by just passing a law kinda like trying to simplify math by passing a law to make π=3 ? If you want your sovereignty-stripping law to have any meaning, then you have to enforce it, and that enforcement will look a whole lot like a war, regardless of what you want to call it.
Unlike Americans the Chinese are not stupid. They have long known of the approach of the obligatory scene of the Thucydides Trap and have been preparing for it as best they can (which happens to be some quite good preparations).
I'll let the empire's trolls in on a little secret: The Chinese can lose every single ship they send to the "Battle of the Xisha Islands" and still win the war. That's because industrial capacity is important in a major war.

Yes, the USA can take their itemized list, and pencil off the playing field. And China will sway in the wind for a while. But you know what?
China owns the ball the bat, the gloves, the players, the field, the dugouts, and the fencing. While the USA is so proud to have control over the score, it will be China that will control the game. And no wishful thinking is going to change the reality that you need people, factories and skills to make things.
Thinking that you are accomplishing something by writing about it, comparing it in a spreadsheet, or endlessly debating it on social media is meaningless in the overall scheme of things. Real productive nations make physical things.
Ya, I do hope that you enjoyed this post. I’m gonna place it in my China Index, My Trump Trade Wars Index, and my SHTF Index. You can access these indexes directly here…
