China China China

Here, there is grounds to worry…

 

That’s the top of the Drudge Report.  — I don’t do fear-mongering or click-baiting by screaming the sky is falling quickly —— but this growing Trade Dispute with China is something to take note of…

Because the Chinese gon’t think like we do…  The East Asian mentality is different.  It’s a different world…  I’ve spent about 8 years in Korea and have studied the history in the region…  They don’t see things like we do.

More correctly put — they don’t have the pulse of the American psyche —- and we don’t have theirs.  We can’t imagine how they process things by considering how we’d react…

I’ll cut this short:  Americans don’t want war with China…  We wouldn’t have before 9/11 and a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, but we certainly don’t now…

—- I don’t know or claim to know if the Chinese do right now —- but I know they have long been raised to think China is right on the verge of taking its rightful place among the Big Boys…..  to claim its rightful place among the Super Powers —— which the last two or three decades has meant — stand up to the Lone Super Power – the United States…

and if that means military conflict — so be it….

I don’t know if the Chinese military thinks its ready for a series of skirmishes or proxy wars in an Asian nation or a more direct military confrontation, but it has been preparing for that for a few decades…

And China ALWAYS has North Korea right there as an easy trigger to pull…..because North Korea CANNOT SURIVIVE without China’s aid…

Lastly, any student of History knows wars usually begin over Trade Issues….

This is something to keep an eye on for the next couple of years….

I watched a lot of people who should know better claim Pres. Trump lobbing missiles at a Russian airbase in Syria was a “bold” signal to North Korea (and others). —- How can they be that fucking blind…?

Dictatorships that don’t mind killing their own people (which is all of them that I can think of) view Limited Military Response as —- Weakness.

I’ll cut this short.  I know Korea.  I know Pyongyang will view Trump’s move as —— a wonderful window of opportunity.

Watch —- Within weeks — 3 months tops — North Korea will fill some bodybags somewhere in a bold attack it expects will draw global attention and put pressure on the US and other concerned nations like Japan and China and South Korea…

Just wait and watch…
