Will There Be A War With China?

Unless you have been tuning out (which can be good), you may have noticed that the United States recently sent a warning of sorts to North Korea and vice versa. Here is another one involving China. Consider the source. Does Weapons of Mass Destruction mean anything to you?

I suspect this is a coordinated PR stunt in order to fan the flames. India and Pakistan did it in a big way last year. India falsely claimed Pakistan was behind the attack as a way to distract from its own internal problems and a haste attempt at starting another war. Fortunately, it didn't happen. But it could with the right conditions.

Wars are planned and coordinated. Sure, they are chaotic for the average person, but for the war-mongers and profiteers, it is a game. Poker, chess, Russian Roulette, pick your poison. How is it that the military can move massive amounts of equipment, material and soldiers in such a short amount of time when the average person on the street can't even give you the time of day? It takes coordination and planning to be able to do all that.

Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece?

Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Göring: Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

I wonder if the US has enough resources left to even PRETEND like it is going to go to war elsewhere...

In short, the USA does not. On top of war itself being a waste of lives, materials, and just about anything else, we are 11 trillion dollars in debt. But the powers that be will do their level best to start a war of some kind. It is up to us to not fall for their lies and call them on it.

Well it may seem that China and North Korea are undoubtedly seeking the attention of the new US adminstraion and as long as the US doesn't sit down with Pyongyang and the communist government of China, then threats will be made and war will be inevitable.

I personally just think its all a power struggle (as always),China knows its fast becoming a force to reckon with economically and military wise and it can get away with a lot - i.e human rights abuse, etc, and if the WEST in general don't make a point to engage in dialogue then we're all soon going to be living in fear - fear - fear, the worst fear is fear of the unknown.

Anyway back to your entry, i do believe that wars are planned and coordinated, it's a win win situation for those involved.

But how do the people retaliate against war so that governments can listen? That is what we need to ask ourselves as tax paying citizen of any country.

Besides, the government is meant to be for the people and by the people, right?

I am inclined to believe that governments exist so that certain people can govern other people i.e. tell you how to live your life yet those very people can't govern themselves.

I think after studying thousands of years worth of government, that they are in essence failures because they lead to chaos, death, war, and what have you.
