Very interesting and well articulated presentation. ( Worth your time )Captain Jim Fanell, U.S. Navy (Ret.)—noted expert on the Chinese Navy, former Director of Intelligence for the U.S. Pacific Fleet, and frequent Proceedings c...www.youtube.com
I was skeptical about loaded headlines like 'US predict war with China in 2025'
But now, in the past few month after listening to similar observations concluded in multiple conversations by credible experts from military background I feel somewhat unsure.
We all saw the General Michael Minihan' s memo, which was kind of shocking.
@Gary @Nilgiri what do you guys make of these?
dude, im Azerbaijani and i can tell you that Azerbaijan has nothing to do with Iran. it made good connections to be able to purchase Israeli army technologies and political support against Armenians which whole Europe support even though it was Armenia occupied land.Here, Russian geostrategist Andrey Shkolnikov reports that China cannot stop because it has invested too much in expansion. If China stops, then it will face the destruction and collapse of the country into separate provinces. China will try in the coming years to annex Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia, countries with large Chinese populations. China has given $400 billion to Pakistan. Thus, China will surround India from two sides.
The expansion of China will interfere with the United States. The United States has made China its main adversary.
He also says that the recent terrorist attack in Peshawar was orchestrated by Pashtuns. The Pashtuns do not recognize the Durand line, which divides the Pashtuns into 2 parts between Pakistan and Afghanistan. They want a unified state. Also, if the Pashtuns secede, then the Balochs will also want to secede. In this case, Pakistan loses half of its territory. The Pashtuns and Balochs are close to the Iranians, are nomads, and other Pakistanis are Indian in origin.
The US will try to destabilize and neutralize Russia.
The United States through Israel and Azerbaijan will strike at Iran. Azerbaijan will seek to destroy Iran, because there are about 20 million southern Azerbaijanis in Iran, centered in the city of Tabriz, with whom they want to unite.
Then the land routes for the delivery of oil and gas will be blocked.
What China need is time.
Which makes me believe that the U.S will "engineer" some sort of Taiwan declaration of formal independence sometimes in this decade, which in turn will start a war and finally give the U.S the chance to stomp decades of China's navy progress (and its overall progress in socio-economic-politics) near Taiwan when they know (or believe) with an outmost certainty that they will win or have a more likely outcome of winning.
China has given $400 billion to Pakistan.
Most people doesn't realize China see Pakistan as its junior partner not its pet.What are you even talking about?
You do realise Pakistan is in a bind right now with the IMF for a reason?...specifically because China wont front them even a few billion (from their literal 3 trillion USD war chest too)?
Even CPEC (40 - 50 billion dollar investment plan based on loans and all forex-sink infra + real estate based....none of it forex earning factory based) is MOU based in "lets see as we go" kind of way.
Pakistan will likewise make its own decision on what to send to Ukraine in return for western financial assistance. The west calls the bargaining power shots there though given Pakistan's desperate economic state now and going forward for a long time.
The latter actually comes through on what you see is what you get terms which is why Pakistan is knocking on IMF door for a while now in lieu of Beijing's (given they were told a firm no by them clearly on current circumstance).
