na.

just what is China up to?

that of course is the mystery debated by the empire’s

current administration,

as it no doubt will be the next,

regardless of what figurehead is in the oval office---

with a rising military budget,

projected to exceed that of the US in less than 50

years,

moving from a current $160 billion this year to that of

$1.8 trillion in 2050,

the policeman of the world is frightened---

having already lost control of their purse strings,

all they have left is the

baton.

 

will mr. obama or the puppet that follows him

be as brilliant as george w. was in 2002

when he referred publicly to “the Republic of Taiwan”

making it clear that the empire would do more than

send over

two groups of aircraft carriers, like we did in 1996,

into the Taiwan Strait,

or will our fabulous figureheads learn to think before

they read their

scripts?

 

after developing a military foundation, then comes

mechanization &

then, informatization,

all meant to intertwine usage of technology in both the

arena of weaponry,

as well as communication, so as to link it all up &

prepare for deployments---

it’s estimated that this kind of build up will be

completed by 2020 in China---

so where does that leave the aging, dying, weakening,

empire?

 

when China uses its military might to keep Taiwan

from formally declaring its independence &

attempting to secede in the coming years,

will the US spread itself even thinner than it already

has &

send over forces to start

the first China war?

 

 

 

 

it’s all a matter of time.
