Tensions have been growing between US and China recently. You might remember, at the beginning of the month, internet giant Google accused China for hacking into Gmail accounts belonging to high ranking US officials.
This came weeks after Pentagon, for the first time, developed a cyber strategy, determining cyber attacks as acts of war that could merit a military response by the US.
China was outraged by the accusation and said that Google may be punished for it.
Is this just a coincidence, or a strategic game played by the United States?
A story was published on The Telegraph with the headline reading “US ready to arm Philippines against rise of China”:
Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario, on a visit to Washington, said the Philippines hoped to lease equipment to upgrade its aged fleet and called for the allies to revamp their relationship in light of the friction with China.
“We are determined and committed to supporting the defence of the Philippines,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a joint news conference when asked about the hardware wish-list from the Philippines.
Mrs Clinton said the two nations were working “to determine what are the additional assets that the Philippines needs and how we can best provide those.” She said del Rosario would meet Defence Secretary Robert Gates and other Pentagon officials.
Tensions in the strategic and resource-rich South China Sea have escalated in recent weeks, with the Philippines and Vietnam alarmed at what they say are increasingly aggressive actions by Beijing in the disputed waters.
“We are concerned that recent incidents in the South China Sea could undermine peace and stability,” Clinton told reporters, urging “all sides to exercise self-restraint.”
Del Rosario, with Mrs Clinton at his side, said: “While we are a small country, we are prepared to do what is necessary to stand up to any aggressive action in our backyard.”
The Philippines has announced the deployment in disputed waters of its navy flagship, the Rajah Humabon. One of the world’s oldest warships, the Rajah Humabon was a former US Navy frigate that served during World War II. (Read Full Article)
Here is another example of United States provocations against China. Last year US and South Korea launched numerous joint military drills in Korean Peninsula despite China’s protests:
Plans by the U.S. and South Korea to conduct military exercises in the Yellow Sea aimed at North Korea, despite China’s strong objections, are ratcheting up tensions between Beijing and Washington, already at loggerheads over sensitive regional security issues.
Chinese officials warn that the exercises threaten a crisis on China’s doorstep by provoking North Korea, and could inflame public opinion in China.
“There’s a real danger things could get out of control—and that would be a real threat for China’s national security,” a senior official said.”The very fact that you have such a strong military presence in the Yellow Sea at this particular moment could hardly be interpreted as a friendly gesture by the Chinese public,” the official said.
“This is really a political signal the United States is sending to the Chinese public, so I think a high degree of restraint is very much in order.”(WSJ)
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya puts it very well in his article “The “Great Game” and the Conquest of Eurasia: Towards a World War III Scenario?”:
The chess pieces for a colossal geo-strategic project are being put into place and coming together. The ultimate goal of this project is the encirclement and control of Eurasia through the jackboots of an ever expanding military machine.
While these developments are barely covered by the media, the fate of humanity literally hangs in the balance. It is because of this project to conquer Eurasia that Russia, China, and Iran have moved closer towards one another and pushed for a united Eurasian front against America and its cohorts.
All three Eurasian nations are encircled by a ring of U.S. military bases, military alliances dominated by the U.S. and NATO, and hostile governments supported and armed by both the U.S. government and military.
We need to be watching current geopolitical events very closely. There is a hidden agenda behind every step United States and its allies take. And this agenda is NOT one of peace.
