Bannon’s Gone…But China War Is On!

This week on Newsbud’s China Watch with Peter Lee: Bannon’s gone…but China War is on!  Goodbye ethno-nationalism, hello economic nationalism.  And it looks like lawfare is out-- and warfare is in--as the uniformed military looks to apply its gray zone conflict toolkit to China.   And look out Australia!  There’s a new threat from China and it’s down under…Down under!

    I guess the Chinese are getting fed up with all these ship collisions too. http://gcaptain.com/chinese-paper-says-us-navy-hazard/

    • Peter Lee says:

      They’re pretty happy to see the USN screw up I think. So happy people are floating the idea that the collisions might be the result of some Oriental deviltry

    Indeed, Lawfare was always out and Warfare in, in the US foreign policy of “nation building” or creating military dictatorships in the 3-rd world ever since WWII and before [Smedley Butler: war is a racket].

    In my view, Trump supporters who gave victory to Trump in Ohio, Wisconsin and Pensylvania during the national election, were impoverished middleclass americans, nowhere near white-lifes matter. They wanted jobs. Brannon is an unimportant figure in my view.

    Trump’s protectionism will hardly work, since the EU, Merkel wont go along with buying expensive US LNG.

    Anti-paraphrasing Hitler : No guns, but butter (for the US middleclass). So a jobs policy from Trump. Where’s the 1 Trillion infrastructure investment? Or do as China: have the FED fund research in antarctic ice; Or else, restart the Apollo program and create robotized colonies on the moon to dig for oil!
    Anything , but unproductive military.

    You cowboys: stop being scared by small people!

  3. Argentina have 13 bases on Antarctica. Why wasn’t I warned when they sneaked those in? Is it because the US only has 5 and if China got another one that would be EQUAL with the US? Australia has 3. Russia has 9, so why aren’t we panicking about that? It’s obviously a plot to invade the US via the back door.

    While we’re making sure China invades in an eco-friendly manner let’s discuss the pollution left behind by all the other nations. Too soon?

    Where did all the adults go?

    Great…Thankyou Peter Lee,….So many Win;Win possibilities here ….& seems we only hear this Lose:Lose stuff ….perhaps good for MIC et al?…..Really so much to do on Planet Earth & Money to be made from badly necessary development ….& a needed detente & yet still US want’s to militrily “contain” Russia & China & ?…??…It’s ridiculous…China & Russia are now more “pro Enterprise” than the West & that will not change….My view is perhaps the Military is looking at the wrong “threats & targets”…perhaps ought be looking at Elites in USA Central Banking (…Fed/IMF/WB..)…They created the The China Miracle & destruction of USA Economy by their ridiculous “Free Trade” agenda/mantra…..& they are still at it…It’s a new world & their is no US Military solutions with more “Bases Militarism”…..If Bannon is saying USA “Economic policies/issues” is a or THE problem he is 100% right… Seems if things remain the same China will soon Economically, Scientifically & Militarily eclipse the US……Then also perhaps “the Globalist Oligarchs/Bankers might well change sides & shaft all of us too!

  5. Thanks Mr Lee, I love your style of presentation and a view point from “Ground Zero” so to speak.

    AS A TRAINED PUBLIC SPEAKER I HAVE A DEEP APPRECIATION FOR THOSE WHO PRACTICE THE TEXT OF WHATEVER DIALOGUE THEY PLAN TO DELIVER AND THEN DELIVER SAID TEXT IN A DIALOGUE WITH WORDS THAT ARE CLEARLY SPOKEN, USING PROPER SENSE STRESS WITH VOICE MODULATION, AND AN EMPHASIS ON EFFECTIVE AND PROPER USE OF PITCH TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF CONTEXT AND [ANY] HUMOR. PETER LEE WAS/IS/REMAINS THE REASON FOR WHY I SIGNED UP TO SIBEL’S ODDLY-MANAGED, FUNDS-STARVED, POST GOVERNMENT CAREER-CENTRIC NEWS “ORGANIZATION”. NEWSBUD (NB) HAS IT’S FLAWS ON THE BACK END, IT IS A START-UP, BUT IT IS THE ONLY [AND I DO MEAN ONLY] OPERATION OF ITS KIND OFFERING IN DEPTH ANALYSIS AND COVERAGE, OF THE ALL THE GLOBE’S NEWS, THAT’S ALIVE AND IN BUSINESS TODAY. I IMAGINE IT HAS ANGERED SOME DETRACTORS, THAT FACT THAT YOU’VE NOT SUCCUMBED TO EXTERNAL PRESSURE(S) AND ARE STILL BUSY AS EVER, THAT THEIR EFFORTS TO STIFLE NB HAVEN’T SUCCEEDED. IT CAN BE A BIT FRUSTRATING AT TIMES; LIKE NOT REACHING FUNDING GOALS & MAYBE FEELING LIKE YOU’RE BEING “PUT IN A CORNER” BECAUSE OF YOUR UNWILLINGNESS TO PARTICIPATE IN AND/OR INVOLVE NB W/THE STANDARD/TRADITIONAL [SELL-OUT] CHARLATAN REVENUE MODEL(S) WHICH THOSE WHO, PURPORTEDLY ARE, IN THE SAME BUSINESS HAVE LONG SINCE ABANDONED THE TRUTH FOR. IT’S NOT EASY TO SEE MONEY FLOWING TO THE LIKES OF THOSE WHO [TO BE KIND] ARE NOT THE LEAST BIT DESERVING (WHOSE “SHOWS”/PROGRAM(S) DO NOT CONSTITUTE ACTUAL NEWS AT ALL, LIKE “TYT”) AND, ALL THE WHILE KNOWING THAT NB ONLY REQUIRES A FRACTION OF SUCH FUNDS TO RAPIDLY IMPROVE/EXPAND ITS OPERATION, IS, EVEN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF AN EXTERNAL OBSERVER, A COMPOUNDING ANNOYANCE . HOWEVER, ALL OF THIS NOT WITHSTANDING, “CHINA WATCH” BY MR. LEE IS AN ABSOLUTELY ‘SECOND TO NONE’, INTELLIGENTLY COMPOSITED, HISTORICALLY ACCURATE, NOT [EVER] BIASED, CONCISE AND ENTERTAININGLY DELIVERED ACCOUNT OF THE GOINGS ON IN THE FAR EAST [CHINA] WITHIN THE CONCURRENT CONTEXT OF THE SOCIOPOLITICAL DYNAMICS WITHIN THE 20TH & 21ST CENTURIES. UNCOMPROMISING IN QUALITY! PETER! YOU ARE A GEM! YOU ARE DOING AN AMAZING JOB. YOU ALSO HAVE A GREAT VOICE, VERY CALMING. IN FACT, WHEN I HEAR THINGS SUCH AS ” KIM IS GOING TO …NUKE GUAM! OH NO!” FROM HAVING LISTENED TO SATELLITE RADIO, WHILE IN MY CAR, AND THE HAIRS ON MY NECK BEGIN TO RISE- TO GET THE REAL SKINNY I GET HOME AND CHECK YOUR NEWS FEED FOR UPLOADS SO I CAN GET THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER! I FIND MYSELF WISHING THERE WAS MORE THOUGH… FROM YOU AND FROM ALL YOUR COLLEAGUES AT NB. PERSONALLY, I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED, AND I WISH THAT PETER COULD/WOULD RETURN TO, THE 22-30 MIN. SEGMENT LENGTHS “CHINA WATCH” USED TO ENJOY. I AM SO APPRECIATIVE OF YOUR EFFORTS AND EVEN IF NOBODY ELSE EVER SAID SO, WHICH I KNOW THAT THEY DO, PLEASE REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE HELPED AT LEAST ONE HUMAN BEING ON THIS PLANET DEVELOP AN INTEREST IN EAST ASIAN AFFAIRS, CULTURE AND HISTORY. THE MORE WE COME TO KNOW, THE MORE WE REALIZE WHAT WE DO NOT KNOW. I AWAIT WITH EAGER ANTICIPATION, YOUR NEXT SUBMISSION! THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS. REALLY.
