What would you do to avoid a nuclear war with China?

If you could sacrifice 200,000 Americans to prevent a world-wide nuclear
holocaust, would you?

What would you do to prevent Chinese world dominance?

How far would you go to maintain US hegemony?

Is the US empire more valuable than a few hundred thousand American lives?

Can you think intelligently, like the empire's intelligent community?

Well, punk, can you?

In the Los Angeles Times, the military analyst William Arkin describes a
secret army set up by Donald Rumsfeld, similar to those run by Richard
Nixon and Henry Kissinger and which Congress outlawed. This
"super-intelligence support activity" will bring together the "CIA and
military covert action, information warfare, and deception". According
to a classified document prepared for Rumsfeld, the new organisation,
known by its Orwellian moniker as the Proactive Pre-emptive Operations
Group, or P2OG, will provoke terrorist attacks which would then require
"counter-attack" by the United States on countries "harbouring the
terrorists".

In other words, innocent people will be killed by the United States.

Pompeo said the choice for the world was “between freedom and tyranny.”

“This is not a rivalry between the United States and China,” “This is
for the soul of the world. This is about whether this will be a world
that operates … on a rules-based international order system, or one
that’s dominated by a coercive totalitarian regime like the one in China.”

Trump’s video address from Walter Reed
Mearsheimer calls out the Bush administration on four falsehoods: Iraq’s
possession of WMDs, the notion of a link between Iraq and al-Qaeda, the
implication of an Iraqi role in the Sept. 11 attacks, and the suggestion
that the administration was still seeking peace even on the eve of war.

Mearsheimer also points to President Lyndon Johnson and the infamous
Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, which Johnson used to escalate the war
in Vietnam; as well as to President Franklin Roosevelt’s lying about a
1941 skirmish between a German submarine and the U.S.S. Greer, an
American destroyer — an event that FDR hoped would propel America into
World War II.

It is no coincidence that these are all freely elected leaders.
Democratic regimes are more likely to fearmonger, Mearsheimer concludes,
because, unlike dictators,

they need public opinion on their side to go to war.

So Common … There’s a Name for It

The use of the bully’s trick is so common that it was given a name
hundreds of years ago.

“False flag terrorism” is defined as a government attacking its own
people, then blaming others in order to justify going to war against the
people it blames. Or as Wikipedia defines it:

False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments,
corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if
they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from
the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of
a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to
war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time;
for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.

The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would
hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship. Because the
enemy’s flag, instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking
ship, was hung, it was called a “false flag” attack.

Indeed, this concept is so well-accepted that rules of engagement for
naval, air and land warfare all prohibit false flag attacks.

“I think that we shouldn’t put aside the possibility that there would be
some kind of staged or alleged terrorist act, which can change the
country instantly,” Chomsky said in an interview with AlterNet's Jan Frel.

In Chomsky's opinion, once things start to go wrong, Trump will have to
find other targets to point the finger at, so he will say “‘Well, I’m
sorry, I can’t bring your jobs back because these bad people are
preventing it.’ And the typical scapegoating goes to vulnerable people:
immigrants, terrorists, Muslims and elitists, whoever it may be. And
that can turn out to be very ugly.”

The American diplomat’s willingness to meet with allies in Asia,

China’s rise.
Linguist, political dissident and author Noam Chomsky says that if Trump
continues to fail at blaming immigrants and Muslims for the country's
problems, the next logical step would be for the Trump administration to
stage an "alleged terrorist attack."

"People will understand he's not bringing back jobs, he's not going to
recreate the partly illusory, partly real picture of what life was like
in the past with manufacturing jobs, and a functioning society where you
can get ahead -- he's not going to create that."

"So what happens at that point, something has to be done to maintain
control. The obvious technique is scapegoating. Blame it on the Muslims,
on immigrants, on somebody. But that can only go so far. The next step
would be, as I said, an 'alleged terrorist attack,' which is quite easy,
almost normal. Like Condoleeza Rice's 'Mushroom Cloud.' It is easy to
construct alleged attacks," he said.

What did the U.S. military know about the disruptive and deadly effects
of COVID-19 and when did they know it? In April, the Pentagon denied a
report that the National Center for Medical Intelligence was concerned
about a potential pandemic as far back as last November. But there may
be more to the story. On Wednesday,

Gen. Robert Ashley, who runs the

Defense Intelligence Agency — NMCI’s parent agency —

said that the agency “did what we were
supposed to” and that a bigger story would come out eventually.

“Over the coming months and years, that will get unpacked in probably a
much more public way, not for this particular venue. But one of the
things we have done, and we have done it early on, is we have looked at
everything we knew, who we told, when we told them, and when we knew it,
and what leader did that get to,” Ashley said at an INSA event.

In April, ABC News reported that the

NCMI had assessed the potential for COVID-19 to flare into a major and
particularly devastating pandemic as early as November of last year.

Ashley didn’t go much further, but his comment suggests that the
Pentagon’s April statement didn’t tell the whole story.

The purpose of America’s military is to protect the United States. That
requires imagining all manner of potential dangers. And in the
Pentagon’s eye, the People’s Republic of China is moving from
theoretical to serious military threat.

The “2020 China Military Power Report” is the 20th such document from
the Department of Defense. When the first issue appeared, America had
little reason to worry.

In the intervening two decades, China’s economy has exploded. Today,
China is second only to the U.S.—first if you base it on purchasing
power parity—and has created a modern, high‐​tech society. As a result,
Beijing has acquired enormous economic and political influence abroad.

The CCP has taken advantage of the torrent of new wealth

and steadily increased military outlays. Although Beijing still lags
behind America militarily, the gap has closed substantially. China is
not a power to be trifled with and its ambitions have expanded accordingly.

As this year’s report details, the PRC has marshalled the resources,
technology, and political will over the past two decades to strengthen
and modernize the PLA in nearly every respect. Indeed, as this report
shows, China is already ahead of the United States in certain areas.

Unsurprisingly, given the rapid growth and transformation of the PLA,
there remain “major gaps and shortcomings,” according to the Pentagon.
However, Chinese officials are seeking to address such weaknesses.
Defeating China would be no cakewalk.

Yet projecting power is also

expensive for an

America with little money to spare.

How should Washington proceed?

For a United States used to the status of dominant power, China’s
transformation poses a particularly daunting challenge.

What would you do to avoid a nuclear war with China?

If you could sacrifice 200,000 Americans to prevent a
world-wide nuclear holocaust, would you?
What would you do to prevent Chinese world dominance?
How far would you go to maintain US hegemony?
Is the US empire more valuable than a few hundred thousand
American lives?
Can you think intelligently, like the empire's intelligence community?
Gen. Robert Ashley, who runs the
Defense Intelligence Agency — NMCI’s parent agency —
“Over the coming months and years, that will get unpacked in probably a
much more public way, not for this particular venue.
The purpose of America’s military is to protect the United States.
That requires imagining all manner of potential dangers. And in the
Pentagon’s eye, the People’s Republic of China is moving from
theoretical to serious military threat.
For a United States used to the status of dominant power, China’s
transformation poses a particularly daunting challenge.
The Trump administration declined a request to tour the facility and
interview its leaders.
The NCMI would have been monitoring the virus' beginnings in Wuhan, China.
Spying on coronavirus: A little-known U.S. intel outfit has its most
important mission yet

No public threats hearing has been held in 2020, in part because
intelligence officials badly want to avoid speaking truths they know
will offend President Donald Trump, multiple current and former
officials familiar with the matter told NBC News.

Exactly what the NCMI is now saying about the global risks of
coronavirus, the possible economic impacts and the potential death toll
is not something the Trump administration is prepared to make public.

China and America at war?

It’s a global contingency that Pentagon planners are now studying more
than ever before.

In some ways, the U.S. and China are already at war, said Rick Lamb, a
retired Army Special Forces command sergeant major.


Where are the special operators?

The role of special operators in a fight against a highly advanced
adversary like China would be limited at best, according to experts who
spoke to Military Times.

Tier-one units are not designed to take on peer competitors, while Green
Berets, as an example, are trained to work with indigenous forces to
build up their capabilities and conduct unconventional warfare.

Votel told Military Times that “certainly some SOF could be used for
reconnaissance, select targeting, limited direct action and partnership.”

A weapon against its own people

When the US used nuclear weapons during World War II, bombing the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, conservative estimates suggest 250,000 people died in immediate aftermath. Even those horrified by the bombing didn’t realize that the US would deploy similar weapons against its own people, accidentally, and on a comparable scale.

And the cessation of nuclear testing helped save US lives—”the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty might have saved between 11.7 and 24.0 million American lives,” Meyers estimates. There was also some blind luck involved in reducing the number of poisoned people: The Nevada Test Site, compared to other potential testing facilities the US government considered at the time, produced the lowest atmospheric dispersal.

The lingering effects of these tests remain, as silent and as troublesome as the isotopes themselves. Millions of Americans who were exposed to fallout likely suffer illnesses related to these tests even today, as they retire and rely on the US government to fund their health care.

BREAKING: Trump on Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen Milley allegedly warning China of an attack:

"If it is actually true, which is hard to believe, that he would have called China and done these things and was willing to advise them in advance of an attack, that's treason"
