Welcome to the China War

The War Against China Kicked Off Last Week…Did Anybody Notice?  Well, China did.  So did North Korea, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan… As American media and public opinion continue their obsession with Trump, Trump’s generals have cleared the decks to confront China across Asia, and China hawks are cranking up the witch hunt against China doves.  More and more it looks like peace in Asia is unpatriotic and undesirable when it comes to America’s anti-China mission.

  1. THIS IS WHY I LOVE CHINA WATCH: “…CALL IT ‘DUAL MEE’AH’…” PETER, YOU ARE AWESOME!!!! THE FACTS AIN’T BAD EITHER…

  2. PETER, DO YOU NOT THINK THE U.S. IS ALSO MAKING WAR W/IRAN A CONSIDERATION/FACTOR IS THEIR DECISION TO SEND MORE TROOPS TO AFGHANISTAN? THAT IS, NOT A NUMBER WHICH MAKES IT SUCH A DUBIOUS MOVE, BUT ENOUGH TO BUILD ON QUIETLY AND SLOWLY, AS POLICY BUILDS IN THAT PARTICULAR DIRECTION?

    More really great China Watch Analysis from Peter Lee, along with a hint of humor – very nice and very informative.

  4. America and their existential threats that become self-fulfilling prophecies…..I can barely keep up with whose turn it is this week.

    Peter, your humour befits the lunacy.

    How odd! It won’t load on my iphone.

    Anyway, w/o seeing it, did you mention the twi little “oops, so sorry I bumped (read: rammed with intent to sink) two of your prized destroyers in the past three months, aka acts of war”. i hope so, because the Navy know what is going on and they have too much egg on their face to admit they got caught flat-footed. Two simikar collisions under similar circumstances are no accident. This might have the hawks flapping their wings a little bit. It’s China explaining to the US that if anyone is going to “push anyone around” it will be China pushing the US. There’s a new empire in town, China. Get used to it, US.

    • CHINA CAN SAY WHATEVER IT WANTS TO MAKE ITSELF FEEL BETTER, BUT, THE FACT REMAINS: CHINA WILL NEVER PLAY ANYTHING OTHER THAN SECOND FIDDLE TO THE RUSSIANS WITH RESPECT TO WHO OCCUPIES THE ROLE OF PRIMARY ADVERSARIAL OPPONENT TO THE US IN TERMS OF [EAST ASIAN] FOREIGN POLICY; CHINA CANNOT EVER BE A WORLD POWER IN THE SAME MANNER THAT THE US IS/WAS. THE REASON FOR THIS, AS I AM SURE YOU MAY ALREADY BE AWARE OF, IS THAT CHINA SHARES THE CONTINENT WITH TWO OTHER SIGNIFICANT GEOPOLITICAL POWERS WHO, BY THE WAY, ALSO HARBOR “LIKE” AMBITIONS ALL THEIR OWN; ONE OF THE TWO BEING THE AFORE MENTIONED RUSSIA AND THE OTHER, OF COURSE, BEING INDIA (A COMPETITIVE/CHALLENGING NEIGHBOR ALREADY). A SECOND, MAJOR, FACTOR, IN MY CALCULATION, IS THE TERMINALLY ILL (AND THE CHINESE KNOW IT) FINANCIAL SYSTEM CHINA HAS ENGINEERED FOR ITSELF. IT’S ACTUALLY WORSE (IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT) THAN WHAT THE U.S. HAS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE U.S. AT LEAST IS ABLE TO SUMMON THE ELASTICITY OF THE WORLD’S BANKING INFRASTRUCTURE PER ITS OWN CLOUT/INFLUENCE(S) TO SUPPORT IT, WHEREAS, THE SAME CANNOT BE SAID FOR THE CHINESE. IF PETER COULD DEDICATE ONE INSTALLMENT OF “ASIA BRIEF” TO THE ECONOMICS OF CHINA AND FOCUS ON, IN PARTICULAR, THE SYSTEM OF LENDING THROUGH THE CHINESE CENTRAL BANK(S) AND THE LARGEST BUILDING PROJECT THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN [BALTIC DRY INDEX] I BELIEVE IT WOULD DO A GREAT SERVICE FOR HIS VIEWER BASE. IT WOULD FURTHER AID THOSE OUTSIDE OF [FINANCE AND/OR] CHINA WITH UNDERSTANDING EXACTLY HOW/WHY THIS IS SUCH A MASSIVE PIECE OF THE [POLITICAL] PIE; IT CERTAINLY WOULD IMPROVE UNDERSTANDING OF RELEVANT CONTEXTS RELATED TO THE GOINGS ON WITH/IN CURRENT EVENTS.

    • John Miranda-

      The issue with those two ship collisions is that in both cases the US Navy was at fault. Although the John McCain has not had its details of the investigation revealed, the USN has admitted that their steering gear system failed underway three minutes prior to the collision. I am a licensed US Merchant Marine and an O3 in the USNR. Long story short in both of those issues, the USN will be found to be at fault, and the USS Fitzgerald investigation has basically already admitted to guilt and canned the Captain, Executive Officer, and Senior CPO/Navigator. In addition to the McCain and Fitzgerald incidents, the USS Antietam, and USS Lake Champlain also had separate incident in January and May respectively. The Antietam ran aground near Yokosuka, Japan and the Champlain crashed into a South Korean fishing vessel, and capsized it. Both of those two vessels are guided missile cruisers. The issue with the Navy is based on utter incompetence of the Officer Corps at large. The US allows for officers to have humanities degrees with no maritime background or maritime degree field to command vessels. As a result they drop in people who have no business operating let alone being on an active US warship to take command of a navigational watch or command of a ship altogether.
