For some time I've been watching the geopolitics of the western Pacific basin with some interest, because it has seemed highly implausible if not highly improbable that the major powers of that region would simply sit idly by, watching Communist China arm itself to the teeth, and do nothing, and rely on such a dubious ally as the USSA and its now almost fully woke "military" for their defense. Indeed, I argued that under former Japanese premier Shinzo Abe, that Japan was launching out on its own course of rearmament and diplomacy, but doing so under the guise of being a better ally to America.  In my opinion, this "narrative" or spin is exactly that, something that is being said to quell American fears, while privately acknowledging what everyone knows: America is in irreversible decline, its woke military cannot win anything, and it is at best an unreliable ally, willing to defend other allies - like the Ukraine - to the very last Ukrainian. Publicly, there is of course an endless chatter of support for the USSA and its policies; privately the chatter cannot overcome what is self-evident: the political leadership in charge of the USSA and the West - principally Europe - is just plain nuts and suicidal.  For allies like Japan, India, or Taiwan, this state of affairs cannot persist, and has been recognized for a long time.

Which is why I found the following article shared by K.M., with whom I've had many discussions about this new geopolitical reality particularly with respect to Taiwan, so relevant:

Taiwan’s Missiles Can Strike Beijing, Three Gorges Dam, Island’s Politician Says

I found this article intriguing, because it is open public confirmation of a speculation I have publicly advanced in recent months, namely, that Communist China would be opening a Pandora's Little Box of Horrors if it attempted to invade Taiwain, because the Taiwanese had a target-rich environment to choose from to complicate life for Communist China, and could do so without any resort to nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction:

A top politician in Taiwan warned that the island’s government had missiles capable of targeting Beijing, and that it would defend itself from an invasion by China’s communist regime.

You Si-kun, president of Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan, said that Taiwan had supersonic cruise missiles capable of striking Beijing should China’s communist regime invade.

The Yun Feng series of missiles are domestically produced in Taiwan. They were first publicly acknowledged in 2012 and entered mass production in 2019.

You, who served as premier of Taiwan in the early 2000s, said that he was not previously allowed to reveal the full capability of the missile to the public. Now that it was mass-produced, however, he said that its range was sufficient to reach China’s capital city of Beijing, as well as the Three Gorges Dam, which is the world’s largest power station.

Moreover, he said, Taiwan must not depend on the nations of the world to save it. Instead, it must prepare to fight to the last bullet. “Self-help,” he said, was vital to showing the world that Taiwan was worth saving, as was demonstrated by the resistance against Russian aggression in Ukraine.

The messaging here is not subtle, neither to Communist China, nor to the USA, nor is it meant to be subtle. To the USA the message is clear: you're not reliable (not-agreement-capable as the Russians say), and therefore, we're not going to rely on you, and will develop and deploy our own deterrents. To the Communist Chinese, the message is also clear: invade us, and say good bye to the Three Gorges Dam, and the vast flood plain below it, a flood plain impacting tens of millions of people. That blow alone would so impair and cripple the Chinese infrastructure that logistical support of an invasion of Taiwan might be, at best, impaired, and of a general war effort, severely impaired.

But there are also implied messages here, and Taiwan is simply being the messenger. These other messages are equally clear. They're the messages primarily from New Delhi, and Tokyo, namely, "if Taiwan can do it, we can hit Beijing and the Three Gorges Dam too, and like Taiwan, we do not need nukes in either case."  That is to say, the chances are very unlikely that Taipei made this announcement entirely on its own, without cluing in Tokyo and New Delhi.

But I rather suspect that the principal target of the messages was not Beijing in this case, but Swampington DC, and again, the message is clear: Good luck, but it's time for us to go our own way, because you and your friends are making such an awful mess of just about everything...

Thank goodness the USSA has a few good allies and friends left, like Monaco, Andorra, Lichtenstein...

See you on the flip side...

    Not to trivialize things, but I wonder if an invasion leads to mass immigration to the US, which leads to more and better Chinese restaurants. After the Covid thing. the ones around here took a nose dive.

      You trust food from China? I avoid the Chinese operated ones after hearing about how bad exported food producing conditions could be.

    I would imagine that Taiwan has also put in place the means to destroy its chip manufacturing infrastructure as soon as it became apparent that the CCP was about to take over the island.

    If China were able to shoot down the Tiawanese missiles before they reached the 3GD, then perhaps the US would unleash the Rods of God to complete the mission?

    Don’t forget they also have Lithuania Joseph… at least for as long as Lithuania will exist on the map, of course.

    That’s some interesting geopolitical news and reality. Civilization seems a tad shaky at this moment in time. When you think about a smaller power taking out the the Three Gorges Dam, or a solar flare taking out even a portion of the electrical grid, all bets are off.

    And along those thoughts, when will the EU turn-the-wheel on its game of chicken? They need to establish new supplies of oil and retrofit the supply lines and refineries. Likely impossible in the six month time frame. When they come to their senses, will it be too late? Does Russian prefer China/India as customers?

    I’m more confident forecasting the image of a kaleidoscope.

      “When they come to their senses, will it be too late? ”

      The cyborgs that have been placed at the head of the european countries will not come to their senses for a simple reason : cyborgs don’t have senses.
      They only will stop destroying Europe when they are physically forced to flee.

    I know Dr. Farrell recently poked fun of the John Titor material on a Dark Journalist interview, but for me, over recent years I continue to be reminded and refer back to the material for refreshers. The similarities to the current state of affairs are striking…

    This is the public Kabuki theater what are the shadow deals between Taiwan, China, Japan, and India out of sight. As for the West, it is undergoing another of its self-lobotomy that happens every few centuries routinely.

      Fausti is Jesuit, who brings Jesuit poison cup, as Cantarella culling, orchestrated by Pope Satan, who is Nero-Caligula playing theater, in loony bin called papal Christianity.

      For centuries, apron-Jesuits have been spawning communism around the globe, and all threads lead back to the spider in the Vatican:

      Khazarian papacy and Khazarian royalty have been rubbing shoulders for centuries, and modern globalists are just mouthpieces, heralding a new Khazaria.

      Khazaria is new Assyrian empire, that eight-legged Scythians encountered, and defeated by skull drinking, in Last Supper cranial cup:

    It’s clearly a message to the [bully] in the region as well as to any other would-be-aggressor in proxy form. It’s also a liability the Party of the east by going west cannot ignore nor its tenuous partners.

    The US / Taiwan standing between the two nations was hit hard in the 70’s when it was determined that mainland China and Taiwan were recognized as one nation by those elected at the time. Since then, diplomacy has hinged on that arrangement. The Bully just got bigger as a result of vane arrogance in D C. Sort of like today.

    In some ways, there are those who suggest that the big Western guy of the West by going east from Taiwan and the rest over there can’t handle insults when agreement capabilities are concerned. Meddling in another’s backyard is awkward and remains a compromise in many forms. The arsenal may tender neat toys to impress but has limits by whom they will be released or shielded against. For those that insist on boasting of their prowess in battle with sword in hand may as well be Klingons sharpening their teeth before battle the day they chose is a good day to die.

    And then there are the Callahan type who’d like the aggressors who feel lucky to make their day in unison.

    Chairperson (Bi)den (he/him) of Wokington DC would probably not know the difference between Taiwan and Taipei without a cheat sheet.

    As an aside on delusions as to the reality of geopolitics, somebody replied to one of my twt posts saying that “Lithuania has defeated Russia, and if necessary will defeat both Russia and China together”.

    • Richard on June 24, 2022 at 7:43 pm

      That deserved a chuckle or two out loud. Lithuania, essentially, brought a whopping big stick with them.

    Speaking of Liechtenstein, an Air Force veteran and I used to joke that Liechtenstein was the sort of place you and your buddies conquered over the weekend with a few rifles. Then, after a few drinks, you give Liechtenstein its freedom back go home and think about doing it again on your next vacation.

      Donald Trump made warp speed cattle vaccination deal, and approved a second US stampede of Iceland.

      When Donald Trump has his tender lips pressed towards the wailing wall, he must be thinking about Mr God.

    The “Secret” is leaked w/the: good, bad, and ugly misguided info[like silent silos themselves?].

    Thanks to this site, Japan, was armed in my geo-political map; along w/the rest of “the quad”.
    Indeed, the only thing you could count on w/the USSA is a knife in the back; whether it be into the citizenry’s back, or any of her friends. Because, in gangster lingo: it’s just busine$$. America may be more concerned w/unarming her own citizens; while militerizing zee Fatherland security, or is it Homeland Security? I don’t know whose being spied on more, the foreigners or the “born in the USA” citizens?
    The Ukraine is an outstanding laundry machine and military/industrial/executive-congressional/ all-you-can-steal gold mine, of the highest priority – next to the CIA drug/globalized selection biz.
    Indeed, Taiwan[and others in Indo-China’s theatre] have a target-rich environment.
    But, do you remember those alleged UFO’s that threatened to launch WW111? Certain party’s: terrestrial[state & non-state actors]; off-world actors; extraterrestrials[this solar system?]; AI; interdimensional AI]; and perhaps even some players, inside the beltway swamp; all of them, may have – at best – dubious morals, when it right down to it. Not a place for itchy hair-triggers; to rule the day, regardless of where the nuclear footballs are – all across the globe.
    Throw in the insanity of leaders; the uncertain autonomous AI’s; and all the above? Your looking down the barrels of some smoking trouble just ready to explode – accidently?
    Plus, there are those wannabe gods that are already using weather warfare & other exotic weapons, as-we-speak; on ALL players. What could go wrong?

        With all of Europe sending their militairy equipment to the Ukraine will give the European “Leadership” the perfect excuse when Turkey steps in to restore order from the current chaos.
        Another use of sending the weaponry to the Ukraine is that I see the Ukraine as a perfect pivot table where the weaponry will end up elsewhere in the world in the wrong hands. It is a conduit like the Netherlands is the pivot table for business profits to avoid taxes.

    I find that I am increasingly becoming unconcerned, so it’s good that I don’t write a blog – it would be damned boring. I’m unconcerned about the weather – I’ll look outside and and see what’s happening and dress accordingly. I’m in an area where the sirens aren’t reliable, so I rely on my senses and vast experience with tornados and inclement weather to guide me, manipulation or not. I’m unconcerned about politics and possible nuclear war – I could cower in the corner and walk around with dread waiting for the signal to “duck and cover” – or I can just be surprised. The play-by-play is not anything I can do anything about, so I check a few sources that keep me reasonably informed and then I turn it off because anything further is duplication and obsession. Depending on what happens and where I find myself in the event of war, I’ll cope with whatever is presented to me and simply do my best. It’s not that I’m unconcerned about the economy, but I’ve downsized and prepared within my means and I trust that I’ve done my best and it will suffice – if not, I’ll cope. I can’t really take advice from people who have more means, more community or have had years longer to prepare because there is no parity. Everything comes to an end and then there is a new beginning – I’m unconcerned about the cycle because I have faith in it and know that I am here and can be nowhere else, so I’ll do the best and try to make today count for something. The only thing I’m concerned with is being present, being right within myself, being right regarding my actions with others and being a witness of these times. Being prepared and unconcerned means I have purpose and more time to play and enjoy that bird singing outside my window.

      Hamlet held San Pedro’s apparition,
      in colorful veils of aspiration,
      dancing with Ophelia
      in psychedelia,
      through doors of perception.

    knowing how to set sailing course.
