#trade war, #dollar, #treasury note, #bond, #US, #China,

Trade War has begun and the combatants are trying to outsmart their respective opponents [1,2].

1. China is no more the largest holder of US treasury notes.

Japan is. [3,4,5]

2. China and Russia had quietly (using straw men) sold off most of their US treasury notes.

Now they can thrash the US economy with no harm to themselves.

3. The Shanghai Security partners now form a gold-plus-oil based trading block.

They have a robust trading system based on REAL money which are gold and oil.


4. China has found other markets for their (low grade) consumable products.

China’s other markets are The Shanghai Security block (Russia, China, former Soviet Republics, Pakistan), Asian, African countries, EU, their raw material suppliers (Australia, Brazil, Pacific Island Nations).[6]

China does not need to keep its currency low relative to US dollars to preserve its outlet in the US, especially after most of US manufacturing industries have moved to China.

5. Soon there will be an about face on China/US exchange rate.

China will force US dollars down after US had LOST all manufacturing CAPABILITIES and NEED to buy Chinese products (This strategy had been previously applied many times in Chinese-Vietnamese trade). That is why tariff and import/export control are ALWAYS NEEDED.

Forcing US dollars down also increase the perceived Chinese national wealth and let China buy more foods and more raw materials.

6. The dollars will lose their massive international reserve-currency holdings.

After they lose their privileged position they will be more volatile relative to US annual budget deficits. There will be more countries dumping US dollars as reserve-currency holdings. The cycle will feed on itself until the dollars reach their real commodity based value which is suspected to be much less than the present value.

… U.S. dollars were convertible to gold. In France, it was called “America’s exorbitant privilege” as it resulted in an “asymmetric financial system” where foreigners “see themselves supporting American living standards and subsidizing American multinationals”. As American economist Barry Eichengreen summarized: “It costs only a few cents for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to produce a $100 bill, but other countries had to pony up $100 of actual goods in order to obtain one.” In February 1965 President Charles de Gaulle announced his intention to exchange its U.S. dollar reserves for gold at the official exchange rate. He sent the French Navy across the Atlantic to pick up the French reserve of gold and was followed by several countries. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exorbitant_privilege)

7. US banning of processing of transactions involving US sanction’s targets quickens de-internationalization of US dollars.

US fiat dollars also suffer from US banning of processing of transactions involving US’ targets.

The Belgium-based SWIFT financial messaging service said on Monday it is suspending some unspecified Iranian banks’ access to its messaging system in the interest of the stability and integrity of the global financial system. (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-iran-sanctions-swift/swift-says-suspending-some-iranian-banks-access-to-messaging-system-idUSKCN1NA1PN)

8. Less people will be willing to buy US treasury notes.

US interest rate will shoot up like those in third world countries after every undisciplined budgetary plan promoted by American (In Name Only?) lefties.

Two crucial questions Putin may ask Trump.


Two crucial questions Putin may ask Trump

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

(Blog No. 150)

At the Helsinski summit, Russian leader V. Putin may ask American leader D. Trump two crucial questions the answers to them may drastically bring peace to the World.

Two crucial questions Putin may ask Trump.

#Russia, #US, #summit, #Helsinski summit, #Putin, #Trump, #question,

1. The two crucial questions.

a. Putin may ask if Trump knows that Crimea belonged to Russia until Krutchev transferred its administration to Ukraine in 1954 just for the sake of administrative efficiency. At the time of the transfer, both Russia and Ukraine belonged to the USSR.

b. Putin may ask if Trump is aware that after the dissolution of USSR, US nationals robbed national wealth of former USSR republics. Those US nationals abused the primitive administration processes of these newly formed ex-communist countries to line their own pockets.

2. Honest answers may bring an end to the current Cold War.

If there is an agreement between them on the answers and solutions to these two questions then there is no more reason to keep the Cold War.

The lobbyists and war profiteering bankers in US may try their best to stop the leaders’ attempt at scaling down the Cold War.

about, like Bush’s connection to the Rockefellers and his membership in the CFR & TriLateral Commission!), we may eventually cite Bush’s back-stabbing of a disintegrated Soviet Union and the new Russian state. It was the Bush / Council on Foreign Relation gang that dispatched an army of economic hit men to begin the rape of Russia which would then intensify during the 8-year reign of Kill & Killary Clinton. — But now is simply not the time to even bring up such matters….

1. “The Highway of Death” — fleeing Iraqi troops and civilians were mass slaughtered in the most cowardly fashion. // 2. Working with the traitor Gorbachev, Bush laid the foundation for the coming rape of Russia — a period of immense suffering and humiliation for Russia, in advance of what was supposed to be the final conquest of Eurasia for The New World Order. // 3. George Bush getting chummy with arch-Globalist gangster, David Rockefeller. The Bushes and the Rockefellers go back a long way.

The journey back to North Korea of Kim Jong Un

The journey back to North Korea of Kim Jong Un

(Blog No. 142).

The method to return back to North Korea by Kim Jong Un may speak about future relationship with America.

The journey back to North Korea of Kim Jong Un.
#North Korea, #US, #summit, #Singapore summit, #Kim Jong Un, #Trump,

Figure 1: Map of China and Asia on Chinese made glass Globes.

1. The trip from North Korean to Singapore.

Mr Kim Jong Un took a China Airline as North Korea has no international carrier. There seems to be precaution against something [1].

2. The return trip from Singapore to North Korea.

If there is an agreement with Donald Trump that is unfavorable to China [2], Mr Un would have to hesitate using China Airline on his return trip. He may have to use Singaporean Airline or some Swiss Airline under escort by US and Japanese Airforces.

The incident to Lin Biao cannot be ignored [3].

Sonic weapons are real

Sonic weapons are real

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 141).

#sonic weapon, #secret weapon, #US, #embassy,

Sonic weapons are real.

1. Theory

When you send to sound beams at 200,000Hz and 203,000Hz onto an object, that object WILL hear the beat frequency of 203,000Hz – 200,000Hz = 3,000Hz.
This is caused by the non-linear response of most materials, including the earlobes of the unsuspected victims.

The principle is familiar to radio amateurs and is known as demodulation using ring diodes to produce Intermediate Frequency from higher received and local oscillator’s frequencies.

2. Why should an attacker use two ultrasound beams.

Using two beams of ultrasounds avoids the appearance of obvious assault by loud noises, which is illegal in most country. Each ultrasound beam is also undetectable by ordinary people!

Furthermore, each beam is highly directional, with a wave length of only 300÷200,000 = 1.5mm.

The ears of the victim is the non-linear medium producing the beat frequency right inside the ears of the victim.

3. Possible counter-measures.

Earmuffs equipped with ultrasound sound meters may be effective.

Cancellation of USA and North Korea summit.

Cancellation of USA and North Korea summit.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 134).

#North Korea, #US, #summit, #cancellation,

The cancellation is absolutely no surprise to anyone familiar with Chinese and East Asian politics.

Figure 1: Map of China and Asia on Chinese made glass Globes.

1. From North Korean point of view.

a. The Nuclear and Thermo-nuclear capability is a three generation heritage of the Kim dynasty. It has sacrificed everything to achieve that and it will not trade that “heritage” for anything. The Kim dynasty is proud of its “heritage”.

b. The achievement by N.K. can be counted as an example called by Westerners as “Chinese patience”. (In old Chinese literature translated into Vietnamese it is known as Ngu Công Phá Núi).

c. The most N.K. may do is to slow down the deployment of their new weapons in exchange for some economic cooperation.

d. A summit is an opprtunity for N.K. to internationally declare its membership to the Nuclear Club.

e. A summit is also an opprtunity to officially end the Korean War and maybe to reunite Korea.

2. From American point of view.

a. The US has tried to make N.K. lose its face by claiming that N.K. asked for a summit due to American economic pressure.

b. US unrealistically expected that N.K. would unilaterally denuclearize itself as a precondition to the summit.

c. U.S. National Security Adviser Bolton and then U.S. Vice President Pence had provoked N.K. close to the summit date by threatening that N.K. and Kim would suffer the fates of Lybia and Gaddafi if the summit fails.

3. From S. Korean point of view.

a. A summit is an opportunity to officially end the Korean War.

b. A summit is an opportunity to achieve non-aggression agreement and reunification (maybe following the German model).

c. Unilateral denuclearization by N.K. is NOT a crucial point.

4. From Chinese point of view.

a. China is only supporting N.K. economically to avoid having a social disaster next door.

b. China can be both an ally to or an enemy to N.K: If N.K. goes to war against U.S., China may support N.K. but if N.K. goes into a Nuclear stand-off against U.S., China may ally with the U.S. to disarm N.K. and occupy it (U.S. attack from the sky while Chinese PLA overrun NK).

c. China needs N.K. to distract U.S. from South China Sea while it deploys its Navy there.

d. China pretends to be the intermediary to obtain benefits in its expansion in South China Sea and in its economic war against the U.S.

Is this still the same nation of USA?

Is this still the same nation of USA?

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No.105).

#Foreign Affairs, #war, #US, #Deep State, #ally, #Middle East, #Japan, #Korea, #Philippines, #Military-Industrial Complex,

Is this still the same nation of USA?

1. A changed nation after the two World Wars.

Ever since the first World War, USA nation has transformed itself into a war powered empire. Wars are then needed to collect oppressive reparations from the losers.[1,..3]

Wars are needed for consumption of weapons to enrich the influential owners of Defence Industry and to maintain their social status. These influential owners of defence industry and their allies can make or break most Presidential, senatorial and Congressional candidates (The Military, Industrial, Congressional Triangle or Complex). The campaign paid, successfully elected officials are then to repay their election campaign financial donors by instructing the Pentagon and the CIA to engender (create), engage and escalate in all possible wars [4,..13].

2. A corrupt political system against the founding constitution of the nation.

USA has now become corrupt and hijacked by an unelected Deep State. Even an elected president is under daily threat of Impeachment while people of the Deep State are always exonerated from every type of charge [14,..28]..

3. A war seeking nation.

USA is then engaging in creating new enemies (against US interests) out of potential friends . Some examples are:
Russian people had been waiting for US aids after the collapse and dissolution of the Soviet Union. Russian people expected temporary humanitarian aids as well as help to set up a genuine free market system for their country. Those aids never came. Instead, there were only American con men coming to rob Russia out of its national wealth. Current Russian President V. Putin became a Russian hero when he reorganized Russia and took back many robbed wealth. This was well documented by Western news outlets at that time.[29,…35].

4. An ambition to be a nuclear monopoly.

The ambition of the American Empire to monopolize nuclear weapons and to make a show case against any non-submission by small countries such as India, Pakistan, North Korea. The US wants to play North Korea for fools. It wants North Korea to surrender its hard-won Nuclear Power achievement.[36].
The threat of 1992 war against NK with US nuclear weapons ready.

The criticism against Pakistan, India on nukes while supporting nuclear weapons for Israel [37,..40].

5. An abuser of International Cooperation spirit.

USA has attempted to use UN selectively for its own aim. USA uses the UN label when it suits its purpose and denounce the UN when it is against US [41,..43].
USA has created Israel using the UN [43], then ignored and veto every UN resolution on Israel.

Calling UN a house of lies.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had promised to reject the results of the vote, calling the UN a “house of lies”.
Afterwards he said in a statement: “Israel thanks President Trump for his unequivocal position in favour of Jerusalem and thanks those countries that voted alongside Israel, alongside the truth.”


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dubbed the United Nations a ‘house of lies’ on Thursday, ahead of a General Assembly vote on a resolution rejecting US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.


JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the United Nations as a “house of lies” ahead of a vote on Thursday on a draft resolution calling on the United States to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

US attacked Iraq without any UN authorisation.

US threatened to attack North Korea without any UN’s authorization.

6. USA harbours an ambition to occupy and redraw the maps and rewrite histories of the whole Middle East.

The ambition to occupy and dominate all Middle East and Muslim countries by some groups of lobbyists in the US. They want to extend the Balfour plan. They plan to use American war against North Korean to kick-start an American war against Iran for their own advantage.

First they played God by forming countries by drawing their fingers across the map, robbing lands from some local populations like Palestinian, while leaving many like Kurdish population without any country [47,..53].

They have no problem sacrificing their US servicemen [54,..55]

The ruthlessness of this group is well demonstrated by their orchestrated actions to sacrifice a long time small ally of USA which was South Vietnam. In doing so they destroyed US credibility for their (not American) benefits.

The loss of Vietnam war caused by news anchorman Cronkites, Jane Fonda [60].

7. USA has already lost its reputation as a global ally.

Consequently, USA has ceased being a reliable global ally to any ideology

But the United States did not keep its word. Is an American’s word reliable these days? (Nguyen Van Thieu)

The United States did not keep its promise to help us fight for freedom and it was in the same fight that the United States lost 50,000 of its young men. (Nguyen Van Thieu)

You ran away and left us to do the job that you could not do. (Nguyen Van Thieu)

“In December 1974, the Democratic majority in Congress passed the Foreign Assistance Act of 1974, which cut off all military funding to the South Vietnamese government and made unenforceable the peace terms negotiated by Nixon. Nixon… had resigned his office.Gerald R. Ford, Nixon’s vice-president stepped in to finish his term on August 9, 1974. The new president vetoed the Foreign Assistance Act, but his veto was overridden by Congress. … (Embassador) Martin pleaded with the U.S. government to send $700 million in emergency aid to South Vietnam in order to bolster the Saigon regime’s ability to fight and mobilize fresh military units, but it was to no avail.”

Around April 1st, 1975 (the final month before South Vietnam surrendered to North Vietnam), even the ship bringing US military aids to South Vietnam was ordered by a US Congress woman to turn around to bring the shipment to Israel instead!

8. Other nations have not and would not overlook these factors.

The Philippines is now at acute risk of being traded for some US interest (Nuclear war against NK) or non-interest (Nuclear attack on Iran and occupation of the Middle East). Philippine President Duterte may face a difficult choice when betting on an unreliable ally (who was thrown out of the Philippines after its abandonment of South Vietnam).

South Korea and Japan have to learn to be self-reliant militarily. They may need nuclear parity against their neighbours. Reliance on the US to be abandoned (like South Vietnam and Ukraine) is not good policy.

Despite the objection from USA, detente talk between North and South Korea and their cooperation in the 2018 Olympic are encouraging signs.

Truman found, to his dismay, that the CIA had ranged far afield.

For some time I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas.

I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. Some of the complications and embarrassment I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue—and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda.

The article appeared in the Washington Post’s morning edition, but not the evening edition.

And President Kennedy, as the enormity of the Bay of Pigs disaster came home to him, said to one of the highest officials of his Administration that he “wanted to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.”

So did Kennedy say it? Possibly. The only attribution we have is an anonymous source from the Kennedy administration by a New York Times reporter three years after Kennedy was assassinated. I’ve found no record that pre-dates 1966. It’s not exactly like he said it in a public speech or even to a reporter directly.

“Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.”

“It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.”

During an interview with the Chicago Tribune on February 15, 1931, Germany’s elected President-Chancellor was forthright:

“The USA has become a state as a result of liberal ideas and various other factors, through financial monopolies too. But they will never be a nation: they will always be the scene of internal disturbances, ideological, religious, ethnic and religious rivalries. The USA will be overtaken by events.”

An opinion poll published June 28, 2018, reveals that a second Civil War is looming in the United States. This finding is based on the gloomy predictions of almost a third of American voters.

Understanding the Concept of Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours.

Contrary to Westerners’ impression, China is not ruled by successive descendents of an Empire founder for thousands of years. Actually, there are many successive empires in China, each killing all eligible inheritors and most officials of the previous empire to grab its power and to prevent its resurgence. The new empire then restored and continued to use most Citadels built by the previous empire.

Except for a short period of the Zhao dynasty (who ruled by being virtuous but was therefore bullied by their own followers), whatever empire occupying the Central Citadel always practice Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours.

1. The central empire state and its surrounding vassal states.

The ruling Emperor always has to award his contributing followers while keeping them under control.
The empire is carved into many vassal states (each is a miniature copy of the central state but having to pay annual tributes to the Emperor) awarded hereditarily to the contributing followers of the emperor. The vassal states sometimes wage wars among themselves, their boundaries are not fix but always change due to wars/feuds between their rulers. Sometimes the Emperor has to intervene to stop wars among his vassal states.

The ancestors (in name, but not biologically) of the founder of the Qin Empire were followers of the Zhao emperors and had been awarded the vassal state of Qin, but they successfully bullied the Zhao Emperors to gradually rob their land and their throne.

2. Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours (within the empire).

The desire is understandable. Chinese history has shown many stories of rebellion by trusted officials to steal the Emperor’s throne and wives.

On a national level, each emperor let his most trusted generals be the rulers of distant non-prosperous vassal states. The distant governors have no chance of becoming more powerful than the Emperor, but they can be recalled to subdue any rebellious official in the Emperor’s court.

3. Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours (on international level).

There are times when the central state of the empire is threatened by another stronger empire/nation (for examples the Huns Nomades, the Jin Dynasty, the Mongolian Empire of Ghanghi Khan, the Manchurian Empire.)

Figure: The (Southern) Song Dynasty allying to the distant Mongolia to defeat its immediate neighbour (Northern) Jin.

In that case, the Enperor will pretend to find new markets and send trade emissaries to third (and maybe fourth and fifth) countries behind the back of the undesirably strong neighbour. Trade talks with those countries may soon become secret talks of alliance for double thronged attacks on the undesirably strong neighbour ! The spoils of wars will be divided among “allies” according to their contributions.

It is known that 2000 years ago, China has reached distant countries like Persia, various non-united nomadic countries in Siberia. The purpose was not purely for trading. It was to keep open the possibilities for alliance against immediate neighbours of the empire.

4. Applications.

Vietnam (Annam in Chinese history) was never a Chinese land and has revolted against Chinese occupations. China used to ally itself with the Southern neighbours of Vietnam (Champa some 400 years ago, and Khmer Rouge recently) for many plans for double pronged attack on Vietnam.

India is a Southern neighbour of China. The method calls for an alliance with Sri Lanka and provoking wars between the two harmonious neighbours India and Sri Lanka.

Burma has a common boundary with China. Its national cohesion is declining. The country would be a suitable candidate for application of China’s all three policies of Forever Expanding, Strike-then-Consolate, Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours. A suitable ally for China would be some revolting Minorities in the South (see [5]).

North Korea is a neighbour of China but historically had fought against China. Its is always on guard against China surprise overrun (Tibet typed operation). China makes pressure on it by opening trade with its Capitalist opponent South Korea. China may also ally with the US to attack and occupy North Korea at some convenient time. Territorial gains would have to be kept by China as the huge occupation army would logically be Chinese. (This whole paragraph was written before 05 April 2017 and publish before the meeting between US and Chinese leaders in 06 April 2017. Events after publication date now unfold almost exactly along these predictions.)

#Chinese expansionism, #China, #expansion, #war, #US, #Japan.

This blog explains to Westerners the politics of East Asia which seems incomprehensible to them but not that incomprehensible to East Asians.

1. Origin of policy of Forever Expanding.

Since Han’s time (200+ BC), at his Coronation, every Emperor of China must swear to forever expand the territories of the Chinese Empire (in direct contrast to the pledge of non-aggression of Western Empires).

The Forever Expanding policy is called Silkworms Eating the Berry Leaves since the Qin Dynasty (preceding the Han Dynasty) (see reference [1]).

The vast area of current China is the result of such Forever Expanding policy starting from a Zhou dynasty (1046BC-256BC) with an area only comparable to Japan.

The Zhou empire had two powerful nominally vassal states Chu and Qin (one of Qin’s successor kings usurped the Zhou’s last emperor to become Emperor Qin Shih Huang De).

2. Methods of upholding the pledge.

2a. The Chinese Emperor is expected to carry out overt aggression on any unprepared neighbour. No causis bellum is required. There is no place for Morality in Chinese Foreign Affairs policy: The winner is the Moral Authority! Winning the unprovoked war is the highest objective of “Chinese Morality (or Immorality?)”.

2b. If overt aggression has no chance to succeed, the Emperor has to subvert to weaken his neighbours with corruptions and unfair trade practices (economic sabotage and graftings are standard practice).

2c.The Chinese Emperor declares that he is the sole Son of Heaven and communicates all sovereign matters to Heaven. All neighbours have to communicate through him. He will abuse this role to aggravate internal wars on successions in neighbour countries. He will then use his “Representative Authority of Heaven” to stage occupation wars on neighbour countries under the pretext of upholding Heavenly Order.

The revered, 2000 years old manual “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu is always practiced by China. It considers military attacks, foreign affairs and trades as only different facets of one single thing. (This is not much different from the view by Clausewitz[3])

3. Application of the “Forever Expanding” policy.

Strategically China IS at perpetual war with every of its neighbours (including Russia) and distant powers (including USA). Technically, China try NOT to declare or be declared at war!

Its strategy is to wear down opponents psychologically with successive alternating cycles of military threats, propaganda, then trade wars and then offers of “mutual cooperations” until any one of its opponents is psychologically worn out, weakened enough for singling out, isolated and over-run with a surprise attack by its huge army. The strategy is more than 2000 years old but is still effective.

Its offer of “mutual cooperations” (such as currently to the Phillipines) is actually part of an attack plan, as it wears down the opponent with chaos and loss caused by continual reorientations.

Western leaders DON’T know that strategy but Japaneses and East Asians know it well. China is more worried about a half-armed Japan than about a fully armed US! (Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it._George Santayana).

They were found by a Chinese team that was led by Professor Zhaoyu Zhu of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and included Professor Robin Dennell of Exeter University. The tools were discovered at a locality called Shangchen in the southern Chinese Loess Plateau. The oldest are ca. 2.12 million years old, and are c. 270,000 years older than the 1.85 million year old skeletal remains and stone tools from Dmanisi, Georgia, which were previously the earliest evidence of humanity outside Africa.
