So similar to how Germany is dependent on Russian oil. Taiwan has no microchip industry without China. That this technology cannot be returned to it’s owners seems naïve at best. You want to play with America? Not with our ball!
Taking their companies off the gambling casinos we call stock market seems like a major step, irreversible?
Keep thinking the arrogant Empire must have a major trick up it’s sleeve, but it’s starting to look like maybe it’s just a patch that slowly dribbles out some less than magical thing they think is a vaccine.
I think the Empires cunning plan is to jump into another dimention, leaving the known reality behind.
The plan is to double down until the US is pushed into a corner and then launch a nuclear war. The oligarchs in charge of the collective west are eugenicists and depopulationists so it all fits the MO.
Looks like the Deep State has finally met their match with China and Russia 😂
Wow! Extremely well played. I wonder if any of the banks on the NYSE are required to be audited, and which set of books that would entail. This is truly the “you can swim in your own sewer” moment.
Strategically, it is brilliant: hit them where they are strongest, and least prepared, and thus very weak, while completely circumventing a military component. The constant military preparations around Taiwan show that the Chinese cannot be confronted there directly,and while the U$ was watching the military maneuvers, and expecting a military response to the shenanigans of the U$ politicians, the financial weapon was silently used. Everyone who has studied how the U$ operates knows what they expect: sanction and blockade Japan, and you get Pearl Harbor. One direct threat elicits a direct response. Invite the Indians for peace talk, and slaughter them. Simple and brutal direct action. That’s what the West knows. This move by the Chinese is well beyond the strategic capabilities of the western leaders.
Correct. USA forced and goated Japan to attack Peal Harbour via decades of planning and subversion which always results in sanctions; energy, food, finance etc. Japan after the Meiji Restoration was set to become an Asian powerhouse. Just like the Weimar Republic (Germany), the Anglo’s (Britain/USA) needed to defeat and conquer any and all competitors. China, Russia etc…it’s all rinse and repeat.
You pointed to the significance of constant military preparations around Taiwan. Yeah, this could be a big deal. It could achieve some important “corollary” implications. A military blockade and strangulation of Taiwan is no different from same deployments on Ryukyu (Okinawa to some), or the mouth of Tokyo Bay (Yokosuka to some), Guam, Oahu, or, ooops! Diego Garcia? Tasmania? New Zealand? There is one 5-eye sore off the western coast of Europe (also known as called UK or something, to some), could that place also be in the purview while exercises on Taiwan are being staged??? I think it should; after all, some 150 years ago, boats from that eye-sore came all the way to Asia to inflict great pain upon a sickly China.
Nothing should be off the table, now that China wants to set records straight. They are building enough 055C and 052D destroyers, silent nuke submarines, and 3 or more 100K class carriers to do such errands, and they are doing them like cooking Jiaozi (dumplings) and deploying them into the ocean right now. I think by the end of this decade, both hardware and software to pull off such endeavors will likely be ready.
Beijing should really step up its co-operation with Moscow even more with these actions & commitments:
*Share all of its microchip R&D and manufacturing with Russia (presently Russia is doing this independently) in exchange for A-235 manufacturing. In fact, China should throw in high speed rail & its latest Type 055 destroyers in exchange for jet engines & Zircons as well.
*Open consulates/embassies in Sevastopol, South Ossetia, and Abkazia, under a new policy of “Supporting Reunification Movements.” This new policy should also apply to the reunification of the Koreas, & a united Ireland.
*Invite Roscomos to join the Chinese space station currently under construction.
*Introduce UN security resolutions calling for anti-terrorism measures against Ukraine
*Declare NATO a terrorist organization.
*Issue bounties on heads of states.
*Nuke arm Iran.
*Hundreds of RS-28 operational, like yesterday.
Just few things to get shit going…
The Wicked Respect Death, Only.
Forget “the heads of states.” They aren’t the ones in control, but mere puppets. It’s their Financial Masters who are all multi–billionaires who control all Western politicians and “heads of state.”
Sun Tzu would approve. 👆🏻
The West is trying to break up Russia and exploit it the way they tried to do with China in the 19th Century.
China and Russia will always be neighbors and if the West manages to cause the Russian state to break apart, not only will China’s closest ally’s chaos spread but China will be the next country targeted for collapse.
Hopefully, China’s soft blockade will convince the voters in Taiwan to vote back into power the Kuomintang Party (which also favors a One China re-unification policy) so peace and normal trade can resume.
If China wants to prosper with the BRICS and SCO Blocs they need for Russia to remain stable, strong and have a growing economy.
After the terrorist attack that murdered Darya Dugina, China should join Russia in demanding the UN investigate and find out the culprits who were behind that crime whether it was Ukrainian spooks or a combination of them and MI6 as has been rumored.
In the past, Ukraine (which is part of Russia) was used as a route for invaders from the West just as Taiwan (which has been part of China since the Qing Dynasty) was used by Japan as a staging ground for it’s invasion of China. So, both countries share legitimate national security interests.
It has gotten so crazy, that Germany must buy fancy Molecules of Freedom, and Taipei is selling Democracy Chips!
(I did not make this up – it is a direct quote!)
I’ll take a helping of Freedom Molecules with a portion of Democracy Chips – what’s the damage?
$9 billion dollars and counting.
Loss of appetite anyone?
That sounds like illicit dealings on the part of these Chinese companies. I am thinking missing trillions as per what Catherine Austin Fitts is talking about. Modern China is a brainchild of Western technology transfers, GATT and illicit investment from stolen Western treasuries. They might just want to bail with the loot.
There is the British condescension again – as if China, the most ancient culture, now the most advanced, is a mere colony like Hong Kong was.
Messing with Taiwan is a very bad idea, as ye are about to find out. Global Britain wants back in. Forget it.
“illicit investment from stolen Western treasuries” – When and how did the Chinese pull that up, and what trillions are missing where ? The US ?
Oh my, that’s all a good laugh !
First of all, I am as far removed from British condescension as a German can be and this is also not the point of this post. Both of you are uncritical when it comes to how the money works. So what do I mean? China simply did not invent the industrial technologies of the modern world. Ancient as a civilisation can be with a beautiful tradition, she simply did not invent modern industrial technology. Modern industrial technology is a brain child of a specific outlook on nature as a whole that has come to dominate European thought since the late 16th, early 17th century: abstract natural science, which is physics at its core, the reduction of natural phenomena to their quantifiable aspects. This was never China’s view on nature and the argument can be made that this even makes for better results in many areas, medicine for example. (Same holds true for India.) There is substantial and justified criticism to be addressed to the abstract sciences and their general disregard of quality in favour of quantity and their focus on machine modelling. This being as it is, they led to the development of automation and digitalisation and catastrophes like the atom bomb. So it is a rather unspectacular fact of history that someone intended for China to have automation and digitalisation that was not Chinese, which leads to the simple question of who that was and what was in it for them.
Well, one answer to that question is certainly cheap labour and fantastical profits although there is more. (My guesstimate: China was / is (?) intended as a technocracy petri dish.) The GATT treatises of the early 90ies allowed for the phenomenon of “locasian” to arise and to sideline the Western working classes. Western capital owners arranged for that allowing for the full globalisation of the labour market without which China would have had a much slower growth. Also there seems to be an interest in dragging every human culture into industrialisation in general and thereby annihilating true diversity of civilisational outlooks. Theoreticians of globalisation like PM Barnett differentiate between the globalised core and the unintegrated gap states, the latter primarily in Africa. Currently China has taken up the task of “bringing them up to speed” and integrating them in praxis into that same essentially European mental framework that brought about industrialisation in the first place with some Chinese characteristics.
As for the missing trillions you should go look at Catherine Austin Fitts’ work on the money disappearing from the pension funds, the DoD and HuD every year since fiscal 1998. Some of that money showing up in China bound hedge funds to set up factories and industries oversees. The perpetrators being Western oligarchy primarily. It is not that China was personally stealing although she has her fair share of shady business dealings and practices. You or I don’t know whose money is these companies and what exactly these audits intended to accomplish. I don’t buy neither the Chinese nor the American national myth as to what this is about but given what I know I do expect grift, corruption and all the rest.
So my comment is purely practical in nature. And no, China is not the most advanced country in the world, not even technologically, which is what you probably mean having completely absorbed the Western value system as to what constitutes advancement. But she has the potential to be if and only if she decides to shift her focus to the riches of her own proper culture.
China set the deal that if you want access to our markets and labor force then we want some of your technology.
Western companies could have said no, but they signed up in droves because they could make a boatload of cash. They’re the ones that handed over the keys to the castle. Don’t blame the Chinese because they were just a little bit smarter and had a horizon longer that the next quarter or election cycle.
Yes. the hard facts to deflate the claims of “decolonizing” liberals who constantly invoke Taiwan’s “right” to “independence”. It does not, and can not exist. Taiwan will either be the colony of an, essentially hostile, foreign power or it will join itself to the Chinese mainland and enjoy the benefits .
All my dough has been out of dollar based securities and currency for over a year, dedicated instead to commodity based investment. Would that I could invest in currency of Rubles and Yuan. But silver and oil and gas futures will hold and add to the value I need to live on. If the US government doesn’t steal it. Thank you for this video. And a lot of others.
Futures? Wont a peace treaty wipe out all your investments ?
My personal opinion is that USA at least have chance to survive. They have land to produce and energy a lot. When it comes to Europe they are doomed. And not just because lacking energy but because Europeans are dang stupid, just bunch of useful idiots owned by 600 Pounds Dollar Gorilla.
But Russia does not want to kill off Europe, if that was the plan, Russia can just stop everything. But Russia trickles energies to Europe and keeps it on life support. Think about it. IMO Russia wants to drive USA out of Europe and reestablish relations with new governments that will rise from pitchfork revolutions.
The problem with Europe (ie EU, not Russia) is their entire economy was built on plundering overseas colonies, especially Africa, of the vital resources. They tried to get China & other Asian countries to subsidise their “green energy” technologies by accepting “climate change” limitations on their industries in exchange for European “green tech.” They also plundered Russia during the Boris Yeltsin era. Ever since Vladimir Putin straighten out Russia, the EU no longer has any easy prey to exploit, with the (tragic) exception of Iraq & Libya.
At about the 1 minute mark of the video Ruslan Ostashko said, “After all even the much vaunted manufacturing chip companies located on the island have long been owned from the companies on the mainland China.”
The largest of the chip manufacturing companies in Taiwan and the world is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, or TSMC. It is listed on the Taiwan stock exchange. Companies on mainland China do not own significant numbers of its shares, if any.
According to some commentators, one of the aims of Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan was to make TSMC move to the US.
If armed conflict occurs between the USA and PRC, I can’t help but wonder if historians will refer to this as “The Pelosi War.”
