INTRIGUING NEWS FROM CHINA: WERE THE RECENT MILITARY EXERCISES TO ...

There's news from China, and it's rather intriguing, and if true, significant at that. It was shared by a regular reader here, Mr. S.D., and, while lengthy and in a somewhat clumsy English translation from the Chinese, is worth pondering:

China May Have Undergone Some Kind of Coup

There are so many intriguing possibilities suggested by the article that one scarcely knows where to begin, the reference to "old man politics" being one, a reference dimly recalling the disastrous period of early 20th century Chinese history and the dominance of the warlords, the final emergence of the Khoumintang under Chiang, and their defeat by the Communists and Mao. Or, similarly, it also suggests the predominance of certain clans throughout Chinese history, the deal-making and peddling of the Chinese Central Committee and Politburo, and so on.  But whatever dragon is lurking behind the prose, the article does suggest there are serious factional divisions and interests in the powerhouse of the Orient, and that the massive military exercises were designed in part either to forestall a coup, or possibly cement a counter-coup.

As you might guess, this fuels some high octane speculation. The current Chinese premier, Mr. Xi Jinping, has been quite active in the promotion of China's role within the BRICSA bloc, and such a vigorous foreign and international financial and trade policy - the most recent example of which is China's agreement to trade with Argentina in yuan - can speak either to a domestic weakness, or for that matter, to a domestic strength on Xi's part. And this vigor, in concert with Russia's determination under Mr. Putin to avoid further Western rape of that country, has solicited the inevitable calls for "regime change"  - and hence more covert operations shenanigans - in Russia itself.

The implication here is that such "regime change" might be on the table for Xi Jinping's China, particularly since that nation seems determined to adhere to (1) its national sovereignty over its currency and (2) its use of what is essentially debt-free money. It is China's successful ability in promoting its currency to international use that constitutes a serious threat to the monetized debt-money system of Western privately-held central banks. In other words, if there is one nation just begging to become the target for western "nation building" and "regime change," then it is Mr. Xi's China, and this could be based or fostered upon exploitation of conventional Chinese factional interests and divisions. Mr. Xi, by holding such exercises, appears determined to negate any influence of that Western system via the Shanghai bankers.

That promotion of the yuan on the international stage is being supplemented by something else, and the article suggests what it is, and this one had to have had the alarm bells and claxons sounding loudly in usual corridors of the Western Anglosphere power elite. Here it is:

"This series of military exercises began during a time of a relative relaxation of tensions in East Asia. Compared to some recent periods, the South China Sea and East China Sea were relatively calm. China’s drilling platform 981 retreated from off Vietnam’s shore. Since last December, the activities conducted by Chinese ships and military planes in the waters off Diaoyu Islands (called Senkaku Islands by Japan) were substantially reduced.

"Following the two incidents in which Chinese fighter jets flew “unusually close” to Japanese Self-Defense Force airplanes in May and June this year, the conflict between China and Japan has not escalated.

"In late July, China invited Yasuo Fukuda, former Japanese prime minister and former president of the Liberal Democratic Party, to secretly visit China. Fukuda also met with Chinese Communist Party (CCP) head Xi Jinping to discuss how to improve Sino-Japanese relations, aiming to achieve the goal of holding a summit attended by the heads of China and Japan. (It is expected that they can meet as early as November this year when the APEC summit is held in Beijing.)"

In other words, there are still people very highly placed in both countries that are seeking some way to ease the tensions between China and Japan, and to attempt to bury the hatchets and heal the many wounds left over from World War Two.

A Sino-Japanese rapprochement would be the last thing the Anglosphere would wish to see occur, even if it only involved a friendly exchange of bows between Emperor Akihito and Mr. Xi, and hence, both countries would, in my opinion, seem to have become targets for "regime change." As I blogged during the Fukushima crisis, the attempts of the then-Japanese government to mend fences with China were rather rudely and abruptly brought up short, in a context that included threats from the then US Secretary of Defense. The current revelations of secret visits of former Japanese Prime Minister Fukuda would thus, if true, seem to put the current rearmament policies of Mr. Abe into a different light, for as I suggest, Mr. Abe is - like his counterpart in Berlin - having to walk a diplomatic tightrope, appearing to bow to Washington pressure, yet, position Japan into a more favorable position of strength should it ever become necessary to oppose Washington's dictats, while not alienating China while doing all the rest! A visit from fellow Liberal Democratic party member and former Prime Minsiter Yasuo Fukuda would seem, in context, to be an appropriate emissary through whom to communicate secret and personal reassurances from Tokyo to Beijing.

In other words, there's a delicate minuet being danced between Washington, Tokyo, and Beijing, and perhaps we are looking at the first indications of the good old "covert operations-regime change" card being played in China, or to put it more accurately, the first indications on China's part that it was aware of the game, and getting up from the table. Time, of course, will tell.

But as I keep trying to remind people: covert operations are a game that two can play, and the Chinese are capable players.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Although the source of this story, theepochtimes, a Falun Gong branch which is basically a CIA’s psychological operation against the Chinese government, i can still use it as a “valuable source” (as i do with the likes of Kerry Cassidy) to peek into the minds of Western intellegience operators behind these so called “Chinese dissendents”.
    For instance, i noticed (not surprisingly)that during the “Ukraine Crisis”, news outlets associated with Falun Gong display the same “anti-Russia” and “anti-Putin” attitude as those of the Western ones.
    Another intriguing example is, after the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, there were widespread rumors on the Chinese internet that the devastating earthquake was “caused by the three gorges dam”.
    The claim sounds “absurd” to me, so i did a digging on the internet to see where is this rumor “originated”, and i traced it back to an outlet associated with the Falun Gong, so i read the “original” article on how the dam was responsible for the earthquake, and the only “convincing evidence” according to that article is a famous Chinese hydraulic engineer once claimed that “the three gorges dam would cause earthquakes”, so i did a further digging on the hydraulic engineer to find out he did indeed he strongly opposed the three gorgoes dam project, but he had never made the claim that the dam would cause earthquakes. So, here is an example how Falun gong outlets usually mix truth with lies and twisted it in their favor.
    Yet, in another article from the same outlet, it was reported that the “nuclear explosion” in underground military facilities was the cause for the earthquake, the Falun Gong piece cited “a source” to point out that there are military facilities beneath the area hit by the earthquake, without naming who the “source” is. It even claimed someone in China have seen the shattered pieces belong to the underground facility now lying on the ground, because of this supposed “underground nuclear explosion”, yet without providing any photographic evidence of it.

    To me, its very suspicious to see that the possible causes for the 2008 earthquake alleged by Falun Gong outlet back in 2008 coincides with “potential military interests” on the part of China’s adversaries.
    Years later, i came across an article from “Veteran’s Today”, a website linked to U.S. military intelligence, the article not only hinted that the 2008 Sichuan earthquake was caused by space-based weapon system, but it had something to do with China’s underground nuclear facilities in the Sichuan province.
    Yet, such stake was already understood by the Falun Gong outlet back in 2008, i can’t help but wonder just who is really behind theepochtimes?

    Now i have voiced my observation on the “Falun Gong phenomenon”, with that background i would say
    @”Mr. Xi, by holding such exercises, appears determined to negate any influence of that Western system via the Shanghai bankers.”

    The recent PLA decision to ban GMO food coincides with the downfall of Xu Caihou, former vice chairmanship of the Central Military Commission. Xu was “Jiang Zeming’s man” in the military, the former Chinese leader represent what some scholars and observers call “elitist” faction within the ruling CCP, aka “Shanghai clique”. While former Chinese leader Hu Jintao and his premier are described as “populist” faction.

    After Hu Jintao became the Chinese leader the first thing he did to directly challenge the “Shanghai clique” is the releasing of a former Beijing mayor who was imprisoned and replaced by Shanghai clique, at the same time Hu arrested the mayor of Shanghai under his “anti-corruption” campaign, but the momentum of his “anti-corruption” campaign seemed to have lost during the later phases of his administration. And it is rumored after Hu arrested the former Shanghai mayor, he was assaulted during a tour of naval excercise, allegedly, a naval ship suddenly opened fire on Hu’s ship during the excercise, several soldiers were killed.

    Now, if the military had been hijacked by the interests of the Shanghai clique of which the likes of Xu Caihou is their representation, then it seems under Xi jinping’s renewed “anti-corruption” campaign, he is determined to achieve perhaps what Hu jintao wanted but could not have achieved.

    “Xu was expelled from the Communist Party of China on 30 June 2014.State media described Xu’s alleged crimes as abuse of power, accepting bribes directly or via family members in exchange for promotions, and advancing the interests of those close to him through the powers vested in his office.
    Xu’s downfall was unexpected because corruption investigations involving mid-tier officials are rarely publicly announced in the People’s Republic of China, let alone that of such a high-ranking general.”

    As i have hinted in my reply to “China pulls the plug on GMO rice and corn research”, that “Western GMO thumb” was probably also behind China’s decision to allow it in the first, meaning the Chinese government was possibly bribed, and somehow under certain influence of Western interests.
    Then, perhaps its no coincidence Xu Caihou’s downfall coincides with PLA’s decision to ban GMO, afterall, there is also the shadow of military intelligence industrial complex behind the GMO agenda, its only reasonable to assume someone in the Chinese military would have understand what’s at stake.

  2. More geopolitical stuff to ponder on, the “game” is being played now on a much lager scale, seems to me that China has been very quiet on global problems such as Ukraine and the middle east train wreck. However saying that, the Chinese know how the game is played, and they know where the western elites cross hairs are pointed at, but sitting on your hands just may be the right thing to do, ie see something and say NOTHING!!!

  3. The sanctions being imposed on Russia by the US/EU continue to accelerate the development of the energy as well as the financial infrastructure that is required to resist the western fiat/debt moloch. The Japanese need Russian energy in the wake of Fukushima and the Chinese have the wherewithal to finance that development. The worst case is that the Japanese were taken down via Fukushima for proposing to supply Iran with technology–nuclear material reprocessing?–and we can’t expect any rapproachement with China to be public until well after the fact.

  4. If we look at Chinese history all the Chinese dynasties names were family names. If the Anglosphere is planning regime change this roulette standard practice they have never given up on gunboat diplomacy just rearrange the deck furniture to make it look different.

  5. The Rothschild’s(representing private power) influence and backing of certain Chinese families has a history. So China, like other nation states, is continuing its battle in a private versus public war that is ancient in origin. Issuing its own currency maintains China’s sovereignty & independence. But the private power base is immense in its 31 trillion dollar off shore accounts alone(No doubt part of the breakaway civilization reserves).
    But humanity is better off in the long-run with “the people” rather than the current crew of Disneyfied-lemming elites. I’ll bank on the future in the peoples’ humanity(public power) verses the few whose hearts have become financiailized(PRIVATE POWER).

      1. Thanks Luso.
        By the way I’ve just finished watching Gaia Mars-hall video under Tidbit: A Russian article about Russian politics.
        It’s a knock-your-shock-off grand slam.

        Oh and I just want to point out for those that don’t know; Disney film makers faked the lemming scene, throwing them off the cliff. There is no evidence that blind compulsion ever moves lemmings in their natural habitats to commit suicide en masse. I used that as a symbolic metaphor of the power of corporate media to propagate myths(like 9/11) and present it as reality; a major factor in eviscerating democracies globally in favor of a TPP-style goverance.

  6. Epoch Times, the link

    Is run by the martial arts/yoga cult Falun Gong.

    I’ve had members, who speak and read Mandarin, insist that the Chinese Army newspaper celebrated the destruction of the World Trade Towers. (I guess, but why would any party be that stupid.)

    The point, the group is indeed suppressed by the Chinese government, but their stories can get a bit extreme–like the ones about mass forced organ harvesting of imprisoned Falun Gong members. (Which indeed could be happening, but strong evidence is lacking.)
