China’s Xi Says The Task Of Building A Strong Navy “Has Never Been More Urgent”

 

While most of the world remains fixated on Syria and Russia, China’s PLA Navy is in the midst of an unprecedented provocation in the South China Sea as a fleet of Chinese warships conducts its 3-day combat war drills in the waters south of Sanya, the southern tip of China’s Hainan Island.

With China’s presence in the waters off its southeastern coast growing increasingly threatening, President Xi Jinping declared on Thursday that the task of building a strong navy “has never been as urgent as present”. His remarks were part of a speech made during the country’s largest fleet review since 1949. Continue reading

China Reveals Largest Defense Budget In Three Years

 

China’s government has been relatively vocal in transforming itself into a serious threat against the West — by modernizing its military in anticipation of future wars with Washington. It it therefore not surprising when the official Xinhua news agency reports that China will increase its defense budget by 8.1 percent in 2018, up marginally from last year’s 7 percent.

China has undoubtedly given America’s military-industrial complex and clueless politicians in Washington a stern message, by increasing its defense budget to the highest levels in more than three years, even as the country insists it does not mean harm. Continue reading

World War III Has Begun — Paul Craig Roberts

The Third World War is currently being fought. How long before it moves into its hot stage?

Washington is currently conducting economic and propaganda warfare against four members of the five bloc group of countries known as BRICS—Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. Brazil and South Africa are being destabilized with fabricated political scandals. Both countries are rife with Washington-financed politicians and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). Washington concocts a scandal, sends its political agents into action demanding action against the government and its NGOs into the streets in protests. Continue reading

Russian General Warns Of World War 3, Russia’s Nuclear Weapons Plans For The World

Did you also hear the one about Russian nuclear missiles being brought back to Cuba? It’s likely not if you were watching the usual Fox/MSNBC/CNN/BBC propaganda outlets, or following the KarTrashians.

Also, we see proof of targeting the U.S. oil supplies as a means to cut the lifeblood out of the American military. This was discussed in a previous post regarding Russian front companies in the United States.

Do you not see that a sword is coming to America? Because it really is.

 

Russian General Warns Of World War 3, Russia's Nuclear Weapons Plans For The World

 

A new Cold War is the talk of international politics in 2015, but a former Russian general is warning that the world stands on the brink of a “hot war,” not Cold War 2. In addition, it’s “jokingly” claimed that keeping the “U.S. territory at gunpoint” by threatening World War 3 may be the most effective method of combating the United States.

In a related report by the Inquisitr, Vladimir Putin recently signed and enacted a new Russian military doctrine which proposes that Russian nuclear weapons defense systems near Europe will be expanded, based upon joint defense projects with China, India, and other countries. Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev also warns that the Ukraine crisis may transform into World War 3, claiming that a nuclear war between Russia and the U.S. is possible.

Iran to send 4,000 troops to aid President Assad forces in Syria

Washington’s decision to arm Syria’s Sunni Muslim rebels has plunged America into the great Sunni-Shia conflict of the Islamic Middle East, entering a struggle that now dwarfs the Arab revolutions which overthrew dictatorships across the region.

For the first time, all of America’s ‘friends’ in the region are Sunni Muslims and all of its enemies are Shiites. Breaking all President Barack Obama’s rules of disengagement, the US is now fully engaged on the side of armed groups which include the most extreme Sunni Islamist movements in the Middle East.
