Let’s look at the Communist Chinese game board as of July 2023.
China’s Communists believe, that for the first time in China’s history, it can now project beyond its land and rule the world. One blood, one master race, one destiny. Their population is being educated to believe that it is their manifest destiny to rule the world for their own glory and greatness. The “one belt one road” sales pitch is a perfect fit because they know that one road will lead to China. This is what they state as China’s national policy time and again. That is a strong motivation. As strong as the national socialist motivation was in Germany in the years leading up to WW2, and the Soviet motivation in Russia.
To rule the world China must own and control the Pacific because it lacks the natural resources it needs for its factories on its own land. They have formed alliances with other authoritarian governments around the world, and secured natural resources worldwide. They have hooked their factories into pipelines coming down from their partner Russia above them, and intend to feed the raw materials into their factories from the Pacific below them. Being communists there are no property rights barriers to taking other people’s lands and property, or personal rights because people exist for the State. The Pacific is rich in natural resources to feed their factories and ambitions.
The Chinese Communist Party has made it clear that it intends to take over Taiwan as a first step to expanding throughout the Pacific.
America might be the only larger nation standing in their way.
The game board comprises the Pacific Ocean and the moves will necessarily be similar to those in World War 2.
Taiwan is 80 miles from China, but it is 9,800 miles from the US. As an understandable reference point, Cuba is 100 from the U.S. The geography presents a short heavy lift and sustainment for China, and a long heavy lift and supply line for America is it defends Taiwan.
There are about 1,425,600,000 Chinese. There are about 23,000,000 Taiwanese.
There are about 340,000,000 Americans.
China has 2,035,000 active duty, 510,000 reservists, 2,921 aircraft, 86 ships, and 59 submarines. Taiwan has 169,000 active duty, 1,660,000 reservists, 474 aircraft, 26 ships, and 4 submarines.
Without opposition or consequence, China took control of Hong Kong.
Without opposition or consequence, China has built up military facilities on all the small islands in the South China Sea to use as steppingstones against Taiwan and elsewhere in the Pacific.
China engages in ever-tightening war exercises around Taiwan, until the day it is not an exercise and Taiwan will have no useful reaction time.
China has shown the world that America cannot protect itself against their invading its territory with spy balloons and other military technology, i.e., that it is weak and they are strong.
The manner American leaders selected to flee Afghanistan presented the world with an image of an inept military that will leave its people and friends behind.
America’s leaders have steadily transferred our latest military technology to China by abandoning samples of its best military equipment to the enemy in Afghanistan, allowing their spy balloons to scrape its communication networks, and “losing” drones to them whereas we usually go to great lengths to blow up downed drones.
America’s commander in chief just told the world that we are out of ammunition. We lack the manufacturing capacity to timely replenish. China is full, and has the capacity to quickly replenish.
Our Secret Service just told the world we can’t even secure the West Wing against basic threats. The Chinese command is secure against our intrusion.
China has secured billions of dollars of acreage adjacent military bases within the US. The US has no such military assets in China.
They have flooded operatives in through America’s unprotected borders. We have moved few or none into their tightly-policed nation.
Their factories are fully tooled, and by law organized wide and deep to instantly switch from everyday products to military products. Ours are not.
They have many of our military secrets. We have few of theirs.
They have deeply penetrated our computer networks. We have not done so to theirs.
The Chinese people are working hard every day. Our leaders put our people on welfare, unemployment, and marijuana. Large swaths of our people spend most of their time uselessly prattering on social media, and have little to no practical skills useful for manufacturing or interacting with the real world environment.
Morale matters. Chinese schools teach their kids that they and their nation are great and good. That they are one blood, one master race, destined to rule the world. This month
they started indoctrinating them to prepare themselves for war. American schools demoralize and tell the students they are sick, personally evil, the wrong sex in their bodies, and that they carry the shame and guilty of a nation that is evil and destined to fail.
Chinese school kids graduate skilled in language and math and most when are asked what they want to do they express things like be an astronaut. America’s schools graduate students that are illiterate, unskilled in language, math, world history, and when asked what they want to do so very often say they want to a social influencer in social media pratter.
Chinese schools and media have been training their population with skills, national pride, and a focus on cooperation and a practical mission to be achieved. Americans schools and media have done to us what God did with the tower of babel -- reduced us to the inability to communicate with each other using defined and known terms so that we are ineffective and unable to work in concert to accomplish a common practical goal.
The communists have indirectly paid our key leaders, compromising them. Once a cop takes the payoff there’s no going back. They have infiltrated our government organs, media, tech industries, critical infrastructure, and educational system. They use this to gradually reframe our national philosophy, weaken our beliefs and resolve, fracture us against each other, and affect in their favor key decisions made by our key leaders.
Although we have almost all of the natural resources we need located within our own land, our leaders have forbidden us to use them and instead compelled us to transfer most of our wealth to our adversaries and enemies to get our basic resource needs. We have unnecessarily mortgaged our nation like a beggar to others to meet those needs, which hobbles our ability to do big things or take on a peer adversary. They have intentionally weakened us and strengthened our adversaries. To the world it appears they are drilling as many holes as fast as they can in the bottom of the American ship of state
For their moves, the Chinese go around the world presenting a nice orderly picture of strong leadership and progress in order to sign up allies.
For America’s moves, its leaders are aflutter with windmills, batteries, sex, child mutilation, policing words that offend, sex shows, child porn, offensive feelings, job racialy training setting workers against each other, destabilizing and reducing and setting their own people against each other in every manner possible. Its leaders present the image of inept, senile puppets implementing plans provided by others. They have delivered our adversaries images of a former President and officials being arrested and harassed and hounded by little things all around the country portraying us as a volatile little unreliable backwater nothing, instead of an epic, noble nation to be emulated, or at least be feared.
As a result, the Chinese have signed up raw material suppliers and alliances with other authoritarian governments around the world that naturally respond to strength and order not silliness and ineptitude.
Within the last year:
· Australia’s authoritarian socialist regime which rounded up its population’s weapons, and announced that it will do nothing when China invades Taiwan.
· France’s Macron has announced he would like to align with China.
· Brazil and several other countries have formed an economic alliance replacing the dollar and going with China.
· Honduras has ditched Taiwan and adopted communist China as their chief ally.
· China’s capabilities are built and are expanding in Cuba.
· Perú is on fire, under attack from the internal Communists because China had slowly and carefully bought off politicians and teachers to set the tone and prepare the land, enabling them to acquire copper industries key to the nations survival and independence.
China has picked up large swaths of African resources for its factories. American has let them go.
Central America and South America are following the power and money and pivoting to the Chinese.
China rightfully feels the momentum is in their favor, that this is their time.
Knowing that the game’s battlefield comprises the Pacific Ocean and the moves on the gameboard will necessarily be similar to those in World War 2, the Chinese communists have developed hypersonic missiles and other means of sinking our ability to project force over the huge expanse of the Pacific water. They have constructed full-sized plywood mockups of our mainline aircraft carriers in remote desert areas and tested their sighting apparatus on them. That I know of, we have not.
To prep for their moves they repeatedly encircle Taiwan firing their cannons and invading its airspace with jets gradually tightening the noose and asserting a massive threat of violence and control. One nation cannot possibly send a clearer message to another that “I own you and can take you any time I want unless you capitulate.” At best America occasionally sails a ship through the international waters between China and Taiwan to assert philosophical belief in open seas and free commerce.
China’s Communist leaders are mission-focused and purpose-driven, and they are organizing and directing their population in that direction. Their population is being educated to believe that it is their manifest destiny to rule the world for their own glory and greatness.
Americans have historically believed the world is not ours. In fact we saved it twice and then just came home.
Draw a line down the middle of a piece of paper and list what each side has going for it in this game down each side. Theirs is long. Ours is short.
Therefore, China’s motivation for a battle in that area is much greater than ours. And the reason we battled in that area during World War Two was that we were directly attacked and were pursuing our attacker. China’s communists know all they have to do is not to directly attack America. We have made everything dependent on a single thing – the internet. Therefore China can hobble us indirectly interfering with the operation of the Internet in a way not traceable to them, disrupting power supply, everyday communications, and the flow of the daily necessities of life, causing internal chaos and blocking our ability to react effectively. By the time things are back up and running they will have Taiwan. It is doubtful the American population will be up for sending the blood of our young into that part of the world to undo something. WW2 showed that taking islands back costs an extreme number of lives. And besides, we no longer have any national treasure with which to fight a war. The concepts are too remote for our people to understand and get behind and nobody has educated them on why it might be important enough to go to war over. With another nuclear power. So if we are not directly attacked, we will do nothing. Our leaders will as usual fill the airwaves with silly babble to service the people’s need to hear something and protect their positions.
But large segments of the American population have been slowly piercing the veil of internal censorship and oppression, finding out what has been going on internally and internationally, and reacting to it. At many levels America is waking up and starting to remember who it is, reorganize itself, recover its knowledge of where it came from, what it stands for, and what it should be doing. Fear of assault and destruction by liberals and the government is receding and people are finding their voices.
A strong man who will not go down in the fight is running for President. He intends to set it all aside, and the American people are increasingly gathering around him.
Therefore the momentum China currently has may well be reversed in November 2024.
That approaching event with its unknown outcome can have a large impact on China’s carefully laid plans and affect its decision about when to make its next move in the game.
If you were them when would you make your move? When your target’s chief likely protector is weak, or when it is strong?
