EXTRA: ISLANDS, PROTESTS, AND DEAD AMBASSADORS

You may have heard by now that Japan nationalized a disputed chain of islands between that nation and China, causing “outbreaks” of “protests” in China against the Japanese action. And, following on the wake of last week’s death of the Japanese Minister of Fiance, the new Japanese ambassador to China collapsed and died:

Japan’s ambassador to China dies amid rising tensions

There’s all sorts of ways one could play this, but first, let’s dispense with the idea that the protests in China are entirely spontaneous. While I can readily imagine and grant the feelings of Chinese especially in the memory of what their country suffered during the Japanese invasion in World War Two, I don’t for a moment believe that the protests are entirely spontaneous. Might that point the finger of blame to China for the ambassador’s all-too-convenient death? Maybe, but, here again, I doubt it.

What may really be going on here is what I find more disturbing; for as readers of this site know, I have entertained suspicions about the Fukushima disaster coming in the wake of an important, landmark Japanese election, and in the wake of that new government’s attempts to curtail the American military and political influence in that country, and to make some overtures to mainland China. You’ll recall that US Defense Secretary Robert Gates delivered a “warning” to the Japanese government about the course it was embarking upon, a warning that could be seen as scarcely more than an unveiled threat.

Now we have this absurdly provocative move by Japan in nationalizing disputed islands… Now, I grant you, Japanese governments are not known to be particularly sane (remember the government of Hideki Tojo?). But such a direct provocation of China does not, to my mind, suggest the actions of a completely independent government…someoneelse, in my opinion, “strongly suggested” that move… the geopolitics have changed again, for the move of Japan toward the BRICS nations has been momentarily stalled, but, I suggest, not permanently halted.

See you on the flip side…

  1. I agree with Dr. Farrell that the decision of Japanese government might be very well “strongly suggested” by someone else. It is possible that this new stirred trouble to atract China there and cut some support they give to Iran, as i read some opinions somewhere.

    In the same time it is too maybe a containment of Chinese expansion in south, forcing them to look up north, to Siberia. Or even joining a possible alliance directed against Russia. Russians just revealed a huge diamond site there, the biggest in the world, and the full of resources Siberia might be an “El Dorado” for many “big powers” if the Russian Federation (still an empire) will fall apart. Beside some unknow resources under the oceans floor or some still untouchable ones in space, Siberia is the big prize, but still hard to get

    China have anyway a “love and hate” relation with Russia, who grabed quite some lands from China in previous centuries (starting i think with “opium wars” period). And China, sooner or later will be forced to expand for resources and even space for her huge population. And Siberia looks very appealing.

    Interesting is that China reacted by revealing its second “generation 5″ fighter plane, a prototype which looks like a F-35 mixed with a Mig-29 in my opinion, adapted for aircraft carrier use. Chinese supposedly stole a lot of datas (if not the entire project) of F-35, through cyber-espionage but nobody knew if that was put on work until now

    The pressure seem to grow more in Middle East and some might want to clear a little the “play field”.

    In the same time Russia’s Gazprom giant face some troubles in EU, its main client, being accused of bad practices or something. So maybe this is a signal for Russia to back off from supporting the “bad guys” from Middle East, or the contracts with EU countries may suffer.

    I suppose the more active phases of action there will begin after US presidential election when things will be clear who’s in charge and electoral campaign will not count anymore.
    And until then the “attackers” want to clear a bit the “field”.

    I read somewhere that the sabotage campaign in Iran is going well, with some power supply lines for Iranian nuclear sites being blow up.

    I think the most important thing who keep Assad in power (beside loyal troops better prepared then Gadaffi ones) are his chemical and biological (if he have this too) weapons and Israel proximity to Syria. This protect Syria from now from those air support the rebbels received in Lybia for ex.

    Israel army start some big maneuvres too, in Golan heights area, probably as a training preparation, just in case Hezbollah get some new weapons and try to attack them on behalf of Syria, or even if Syrians will attack them directly.

    On another news, the European Comission just approved the money (few hundreds of millions of euro) for the building of most powerful lasers ever build until now (200 petawatts, if i understand correct, i am not too good at physics).
    There will be 3, one in Czechia (called “Beam lines”) used to study diverse materials and life science (whatever they means by that), one in Hungary (called “Attosecond Facility”) used to study same materials structure and medicine applications, and one in Romania used for studies in nuclear physics mostly.
    The lasers build in Czeckia and Hungary will work only in visible light but the one from Romania will work both in visible and invisble light (like gamma rays).
    Some applications might be reducing the radioactive life of nuclear waste or so, but in the same time i read about astrophysics studies, with that laser replacing the huge particle accelerator from Geneva (the one with neutrins faster then speed of light and the “God particle”) in studies related with “Cosmos/Universe misteries”.

    Like ripping the fabric of space (and time) and see whats behind that or see whats about with that “dark matter” or something like that, if you want to believe the rumors.

    So if in few years from now you will see strange things in Europe, just know it was us opening a new dimension or teleporting something somewhere hehe.

    Or maybe is something like a weapon, in the sense of Dr. Farrell “Death Star” hypothesis, for the allien invasion yet to come

  2. I came here searching for info about this subject. I’m a first time poster here and hope you don’t mind if I offer my 2 cents:

    The US navy is being set up for a double ambush–one in the eastern Pacific and one in the Persian Gulf. Currently an armada of US and British naval vessels are heading to the Gulf to be sitting ducks for Iran with assistance from Russia. I don’t know what’s happening with the US fleet in and around Japan. No doubt they’re at least on alert.

    I’ve seen this sacrificial destruction of the US navy coming for the past few years because it’s the only obstacle left in their path. America’s army and Marines have been demoralized and effectively destroyed. American soldiers and sailors are steadily being replaced with foreigners, criminals, low IQ incompetents, women and queers. “Suicides” of active duty and veterans are at an all time high. Returning vets are demonized and labeled as potential domestic terrorists by Homeland Security.

    Consider all the US military technology and hardware that’s been given to China. The deliberate build up of the Chinese economy at the expense of US economy which has provided Communist China the finances for unprecedented military development.

    I could go on but I think you get the picture.

    The Japanese recently elected a potential ‘game changer.’ He’s now onboard and the plan, as always, is carried out by the ‘hidden hand.’

    With the navy out of the way, the US will be sacked and plundered by invading hordes.

    • Thanks for the “1st time poster”.
      This is what I love about this site:
      the outside the box thinking.

      This is an angle I didn’t see.

      Thanks again, roman

    • Local Currencies in the past were plentiful & worked very well for the local economies. It’s the King’s gold that decimated those local economies for all(by outlawing them); but favored an elite crowd that kowtowed to the King.

  3. a rumor from a not very reliable news source Veteran’s Today:

    “a combined fleet operation between the US and China has been going on, a full combat operation against what we are told is a “highly unfriendly extra-terrestrial threat.”

    Giza website wouldn’t accept the article.

    I believe the writer, Gordon Duff, to be of sound mind, intelligence and integrity. Either he is being fed this (dis)information by powers that want to make the (internet) world believe there is a war taking place between ETs and humans or their really is a war taking place. It certainly plays to the Hollywood script of Battleship.

    Possibly the landlubbing Earthlings now feel technologically powerful enough to evict the the Earth denizens living below the Pacific or those same Ocean bottom dwellers have had that Humphrey Bogart moment in Casablanca when they realized they must finally participate in the fight against this evil spreading its tentacles across the globe and possibly into the sea. Maybe this has something to do with the submarines as well.

  4. Seems like the Russian German parallel, advanced economy with technical expertise (Japan) and an under developed economy with raw resources (China).

    The two should be obvious allies with benefits to both parties but it shows you how easy it is for a third party to drive a wedge. All you need is to court crackpot nationalists on one side, create the dialectic in the other and voila, you have created enemies.

    The script is so old that it has become passé.

    • The 33 invasion into manchuria….the start of ww2.

      Odd that fact was disputed by a few trolls on this site.

      And a little comedian with a funny mustache gained power of Germany that year….such coincidences…almost seems magical.

  5. I hope you can take some constructive criticism because I find your posts a little lightweight intellectually lately.

    The Diayou (Senkaku islands to the japs) are much closer to china than japan. Japan would not have made this move to exacebate its biggest trading partner without higher authority (there are 165 countries with Rotscum & Co. Central banks). The jap elite are the same right wingers who waged their imperialist wars of conquest throughout the 1930s. Thy have been following orders forever, including the 1985 Plaza Accord. This aggressive move fits in with all the encouragement the US gov has given Vietnam and the pihilipines in their maritime border disputes with china. The Chinese have been dumping US bonds for tangible wealth like gold.

    Now this:

    Now, anybody can read a headline but I thought we were here for incisive commentary. Connecting the dots and speculating in the overall strategy unfolding before us what would be more ineteresting.

    For instance, Japan is a truly hobbled economy so what’s the endgame here? Japan has only had a bit of economic growth over the last decade because of the chinese market. They’re willing to risk hundreds of billions in trade for a barren piece of rock? Yes, it might have oil but even then, risk an economic depression over it instead of say going 50/50 on it ? Doesn’t make sense. Especially with japan’s other two largest export markets (US and EU) in the toilet. China was the future for their export oriented economy. Now what?

    My take? War.

  6. No doubt an example has to be made again, & again, and again.
    An example to those wh DARE to act in their own country’s best interest. In the peoples’ interest. Deception that is read, …all too well by those in the know.

    (Great to be back…
    Will be catching up with the posts.)

  7. Just when you think things couldn’t be getting worse for the Japs. Mt. Fuji ready to explode:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/experts-predict-mount-fuji-will-erupt-soon-2012-9

    Or is this a threat? If you wanted to drive Japanese people into an end time frenzy, this would be the way to do it. Asian Apocalypse Theater.

    Here’s a thought– what if those vacant Chinese newly built cities are the future internment homes of the remnants of the Japanese population after the majority are killed off slowly or quickly? It would be just like the Chinese to think up a sadistic trap like this for their enemies. And like a Chinese friend of mine once told me: there is no forgiving what the Japanese did to the Chinese in WWII. There is only revenge.

    My second guess– Chinese cities will be the future home of the world’s jews after the next war and proceeding diaspora. Sort of a backup plan if everything goes wrong.

    • History shows that the benificent western powers came to the rescue of Nanking and halted the Nazi death camps… oh, they didn’t? Never mind.

      Probably not wise to inflict horrors on old cvilizations with lots of very, very smart people and long memories. Who think in terms of millennia.

      Unlike us Americans who figure that if it happened before I was born, it’s irrelevant. In fact, if it happened more than 5 years ago, it’s irrelevant.
