The Obama administration is furious at China supposedly for cyber attacks (see link below).
But China has done this forever and no one ever complained. Why now?
Here is the secret no one in msm will mention, and it is obvious:
Russia (which the US has started a Cold War with over Ukraine, even though the Kiev distrubances were made in USA and EU) and China just signed a huge gas deal for around $400 billion under a gas supply contract. This is designed as a stopgap measure in case Europe decides at some point to stop buying Russian gas. The West sees it as a threat to their economy.
But it’s worse: China and Russia have long been planning to dedollarize, and a look at the shambles the Fed has created and especially at the QEs, the insane issuing dollars in the trillions with no backing, will help you understand why they see this as necessary. Recent reports do not state whether this big gas deal that was just signed will be in a currency other than the dollar, but most likely the contract will be denominated in the yuan or the ruble.
THIS is the true source of the anger in Washington, but anger is hardly the right word. Call it fear.
Well, folks, the US government could have reined in the NGOs (incl Soros’ Open Society Foundation) in Ukraine and it didn’t have to spend $5 billion (as admitted by Victoria Nuland) on destabilizing Ukraine via USAID. And it didn’t have to send the ancient lunatic McCain to meet with a known Nazi in what must have been a deliberate provocation of Russia, a country that lost millions of its people and millions of dollars worth of infrastructure to the Nazis. to the average Russian, there is nothing more hated than a Nazi, andwith good reason. And now we are schmoozing with Nazis in Kiev.
No one made the US government accept the Wolfowitz doctrine of encirclement of Russia. Russia had traditional economic and diplomatic ties to every country surrounding it and there was no rational motive for trying to harm it economically as long as it was cooperating with the US, as it was. It was deliberate provocation.
Now ask yourself. If you told your teen not to go out to the bear cave and taunt the mother bear by stealing her cubs, what would you expect? And would your teen be blameless if he failed to heed your warning?
We were at peace with the Russian bear. Now that peace is troubled. It didn’t have to be this way. If a war breaks out, it must be between the political and corporatist class in the West and We the People, not between us and a scapegoat country.
