 Inevitable War with China

Unless Both U.S. and Chinese Political Leaders Decline to Carry Out Counterforce Strategies, the Ability of Either State to Control the Ensuing Conflict Would Be Greatly Impaired

  • Both sides would suffer large military losses in a severe conflict. In 2015, U.S. losses could be a relatively small fraction of forces committed, but still significant; Chinese losses could be much heavier than U.S. losses and a substantial fraction of forces committed.
  • This gap in losses will shrink as Chinese A2AD improves. By 2025, U.S. losses could range from significant to heavy; Chinese losses, while still very heavy, could be somewhat less than in 2015, owing to increased degradation of U.S. strike capabilities.
  • China's A2AD will make it increasingly difficult for the United States to gain military-operational dominance and victory, even in a long war.

Conflict Could Be Decided by Domestic Political, International, and Economic Factors, All of Which Would Favor the United States in a Long, Severe War

  • Although a war would harm both economies, damage to China's would be far worse.
  • Because much of the Western Pacific would become a war zone, China's trade with the region and the rest of the world would decline substantially.
  • China's loss of seaborne energy supplies would be especially damaging.
  • A long conflict could expose China to internal political divisions.
  • Japan's increased military activity in the region could have a considerable influence on military operations.

How the U.S. Could Lose a War With China
Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum last week, Admiral Philip Davidson, who oversees U.S. military forces in Asia, called China “the greatest long-term strategic threat to the United States and the rules-based international order.” He described China’s rapid military buildup in nearly every domain—air, sea, land, space, and cyber—and said that while China’s capabilities don’t outnumber America’s in the region for now, it’s possible they could overtake the United States’ within the next five years.

But the sheer number of ships, missiles, planes, and people doesn’t tell the whole story. What already gives the Chinese the advantage is geography.
Dr. Allison points out most Westerners have a fundamental misunderstanding of China. The country is not like us. It is based not on the principles of Western Civilization – namely Judeo/Christian/Greek/Roman traditions but rather on the much older philosophy of Confucianism. Confucius stressed order, authority, compliance and conformity. Chinese President-for-Life Xi Jinping agrees with that philosophy, especially with himself as the top authority figure. While China no longer is oppressed by “foreign devils,” most Chinese carry a chip on their shoulder from years of colonialism and invasion and want their nation to be recognized (and treated) as a world leader. Ironically, China’s slogan could easily be “Make China Great Again,” according to Dr. Allison. 

Washington’s fears of a rising China were on full display in January with the release of the 2019 Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community, a synthesis of the views of the Central Intelligence Agency and other members of that "community." Its conclusion: "We assess that China’s leaders will try to extend the country’s global economic, political, and military reach while using China’s military capabilities and overseas infrastructure and energy investments under the Belt and Road Initiative to diminish U.S. influence."

To counter such efforts, every branch of government is now expected to mobilize its capabilities to bolster American – and diminish Chinese – power. In Pentagon documents, this stance is summed up by the term "overmatch," which translates as the eternal preservation of American global superiority vis-à-vis China (and all other potential rivals). "The United States must retain overmatch," the administration’s National Security Strategy insists, and preserve a "combination of capabilities in sufficient scale to prevent enemy success," while continuing to "shape the international environment to protect our interests."

China’s Secret Military Plan: Invade Taiwan by 2020

China has drawn up secret military plans to take over the island of Taiwan by 2020, an action that would likely lead to a larger U.S.-China conventional or nuclear war, according to newly-disclosed internal Chinese military documents.

The secret war plan drawn up by the People's Liberation Army (PLA), the Chinese Communist Party's armed forces, calls for massive missile attacks on the island, along with a naval and air blockade that is followed by amphibious beach landing assaults using up to 400,000 troops.

The plans and operations are outlined in a new book published this week, The Chinese Invasion Threat by Ian Easton, a China affairs analyst with the Project 2049 Institute, a think tank.


The Coming War on China is John Pilger's 60th film for ITV. Pilger reveals what the news doesn't - that the world's greatest military power, the United States, and the world's second economic power, China, both nuclear-armed, are on the road to war. Pilger's film is a warning and an inspiring story of resistance.

 Lawyers will never
administer legal justice

The law is too important to be left to attorneys. Any objective observer of the existing legal system would conclude that allowing lawyers and judges to police the profession is a total sham. Politicians and public officials, who are members of the bar, owe their allegiance to a privileged and entitled fraternity of overseers. Their function directly destroys the real meaning of the law, which is based upon the intrinsic and permanent value of the individual, not the relative whims of governments. Justice is not achieved by state authority. Thus, knowing the nature of process is crucial to understand the proper relationships.

Clinton Foundation Bribes
for Weapon Deals

“Crooked Hillary” is not just a nickname; it is a way of life. For the latest generation of indoctrinated millennials, who were educated in the black hole of Clinton’s actual political conduct for decades, the notion of selling out real national security for funding her family slush fund may be hard to swallow. For hard core Clintonistas, the practice of trading favors for money is politics 101, taught in the book from “Chinagate”. Lest you forget, “the transfer of America’s most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, apparently in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee”, is a family tradition.

Do you think those chants of “Send Her Back” at President Trump’s recent rallies are an aberration? They’re not. They’re a sign of the future. White people and conservatives of every color don’t care anymore. And because they don’t care anymore, they’re boycotting Gillette, Burger King, and Major League Baseball. They’re canceling their Netflix and […]

Three years after the narrative we call Russiagate was framed and incessantly promoted, it crumbles into rubble as we speak. The mini-empire of allegations, presuppositions, fallacious syllogisms, leaps of logic, imagined connections and mis– and disinformation marshaled to support charges of Russian interference in the 2016 elections is more or less a ruin. The total […]

After 48 hours of prevaricating, the mainstream media is finally acknowledging that the Dayton mass shooter was a left-wing extremist. As we previously highlighted, Connor Betts described him self as a “socialist,” praised and expressed support for Elizabeth Warren amongst many other indications that he was a far-left radical. After NBC reporter Ben Collins falsely claimed that […]

If you have been wondering when the twenty Democratic aspirants for the presidency will begin a serious discussion of American foreign policy in the Middle East, where Washington has been bogged down in both current and impending wars, you are not alone. With the honorable exception of Tulsi Gabbard, no one seems keen to touch […]

It was two days of contrast that tell us about America 2019. In El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, following the mass murders of Saturday and Sunday morning, the local folks on camera — police, prosecutors, mayors, FBI and city officials — were nonpartisan, patient, polite and dignified in the unity and solemnity of their […]


Ms. Gillibrand also said Mr. Trump is “inciting” violence and hate.

“If I was president, I would use my Department of Justice to actually investigate white supremacy, to make sure that we knew what these groups were doing,” she said. “I would make sure we’d infiltrate these groups to make sure we [could] stop these kinds of terrorist attacks.”

“This is what domestic terrorism looks like, and we should be using our resources, the Department of Justice, our investigative arms with the FBI to actually root out this kind of terrorism at home,” she said.

President Trump tweeted about former President Barack Obama Tuesday morning, using quotes from the hosts of “Fox & Friends” to respond to what was perceived by some as Obama’s rebuke of Trump.

Trump first tweeted a sentiment attributed to host Brian Kilmeade: “‘Did George Bush ever condemn President Obama after Sandy Hook. President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running for Pres.'”


FBI Wants Tech To Track Social Media For Criminals And Terrorists Before They Act
 The Federal Bureau of Investigations aims to acquire access to a “social media early alerting tool” that will help insiders proactively and reactively monitor how terrorist groups, foreign intelligence services, criminal organizations and other domestic threats use networking platforms to further their illegal efforts, according to a request for proposalamended this week.

Russia Calls on US to Give Up on Plans to Deploy Short- and Mid-Range Missiles
"If the United States starts to deploy its new systems in Asia, then relevant steps aimed at balancing these actions will be made ... This is equally applicable [to the situation when the United States deploys its missiles] in Europe," Ryabkov added.

Any further steps in the field of arms control should take into account, among other things, the nuclear missile capabilities of France and Great Britain, Sergei Ryabkov added.

Pro-Trump lawyer launches project to fight censorship of conservatives

Attorney Robert Barnes, a vocal Trump supporter and Constitutional Law expert, has launched the Free America Law Center, a subscription-based advocacy group that vows to fight censorship of conservatives.

On its website, the Free America Law Center says its aim is to “democratize the law by arming our members with the right to choose the legal battles our constitutional experts wage against suppression.”
