Everyone but the US is getting ready for war. Well ok, you could add the EU to that list.
Must be a pretty big mobilization if 100 military vehicles are on a road.
After what the Japs did to the Chinks during WWII - Turn around is fair play.
See how the Japanese would like having the table turned on them.
If China is gearing for war it is against India and Russia. Japan is about in a same position as it was Britain against Hitler. Looks like an easy pick but not so easy in reality.
A test of US resolve may be in the offing. Sun-Tzu and Mao-Tse Tung used the correlation of forces as a war strategy and it may be in the PRC’s favor with The US postponing the resupply of a carrier group. If they see us back off, the defense treaty with Japan and the ROC is toast, and so is East Asia.
Zero Hedge is occasionally amusing for its financial conspiracy theories. Geopolitics is where it goes off the deep end. ZH’s Tyler Durden is a lot like the character in the movie - mildly retarded. Except the movie character had an excuse - it’s the natural consequence of being hit in the head repeatedly.
Isn’t that where two opposing forces are fighting?
China’s next move will be to squash and control Taiwan.
The U.S. will do nothing.
The Chinese are building cities inland, hundreds of miles from the coast. They are stockpiling tons of rice. They are being provocative around those Jap Islands.
There are a ton of reasons why they might be doing all of this. Not many of them are good.
The best part about China vs Japan is the end of the BS Free Trade fiasco. Can’t wait until a Nip sub sinks the first Chink Container Ship.
