China is dead in the water. Why do we even have to talk about it?
Chinese economic performance continues to degrade, with the middle-income trap taking hold. Since nearly one billion Chinese citizens never benefited much from the boom (their income being less than $3500 in comparable purchasing power to an American), there is a massive number of citizens who desire political change and who regard themselves as having been marginalized and victimized by coastal elites, mostly Han Chinese.
Now add to this the fact that Japan has secured the right to go to war with China on the open sea in the vaunted Air-Sea Battle scenario that we drew up nearly ten years ago. Consequently, Japan with its superior technology in air and sea battle, not only has the right to come to the aid of its allies, but has the military might, strategy and resolve to destroy the PLA on land and sea. China, however, cannot attack Japan itself but only Japanese forces in the East Sea and in the South Sea.
This is a brilliant chess move. Why? Japan is free to protect the Philippines and every other of its allies from Chinese ships and planes that open fire on Japanese allies. They are now covered by Japanese air and sea power. All that China can do is battle the Japanese on the open sea and in the air over water, not over Japanese territory, since this would involve the US coming to the aid of Japan. Japan is thus free to militarize for a dramatic confrontation with and victory over China, where the samurai spirit will destroy all of the PLAN and PLAAF, scheduled for the Battle of the Senkakus in 2017.
The brilliance of this strategy, as you should now understand, is that China cannot "ever" attack the Japanese homeland, not even the Senkakus, without the US declaring war on China, ensuring China's faster devolution into new nations for its various colonies and dissolution into the Yellow River Federation, the Yangtze People's Republic and the Oriental Pearl for its Han citizens. You know this is in the works already, with PLA officers and provincial governors, administrators and business men already laying the groundwork for these three new Han countries, comparable to Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan as they were prior to PRC belligerence.
Consequently, at the beginning of the war, Japan will immediately sink the Laoning as proof that the PRC's military might is just so much fluff. It will be done by one man alone with shoulder-weaponry, showing how easy the aircraft carrier was sunk by one man. Yes, it's political theater; but it sells across the globe. The Chinese citizenry will itself doubt the PLA's ability as a bulwark against invasion and occupation. Caught in this new paradigm of dealing with Japan strictly in the proscribed Air-Sea Battle (note battle, not war), China will restrict its weakened forces to combating with and succumbing to the Japanese Imperial Forces on the open sea and in the air.
As this is all coming about, China will feel a no-fly zone over its northern and western borders while knowing that its ships are being blockaded by Japan's ships and allies, with the US interdicting food and fuel ships headed for China as well, without actually doing so as part of Japan's war effort, at least not until Japan is actually attacked. The effect will be the same, however, with no food or fuel entering China.
China starves in 21 to 23 days with fuel being allocated strictly to the military-industrial complex. Riots begin from the slums in the cities. Revolution comes from the countryside to the cities. Civil war breaks out inside the PRC while the remnants of the PLAN and PLAAF are used against the Chinese citizenry. It's the end of the PRC and the beginning of global peace and prosperity under the PAX Americana...with Asia re-balanced into small and better managed countries.
Whether the PRC dissolves peacefully before 2017, as the Soviet Union did when faced with similar internal circumstances and external pressures or whether the Air-Sea Battle is required (to accomplish Tibet's freedom, Inner Mongolia's reunification with Outer Mongolia, East Turkmenistan's independence, Manchuria's liberty, Macau and Hong Kong's return to independent status and Taiwan's return to the United Nations), there can be no peace for the Han in China, not ever.
Just admit it. China is dead in the water. Why do we even have to talk about it?

As Wulfe N. Straat said: The Chinese have 1.1 billion people living on less than 3 dollars a day. There is no internal market for expensive computers or cell phones or TV sets in China because the people can't afford them. If the US stopped buying Chinese goods and made it impossible for Europe to buy Chinese goods, the Chinese economy would collapse. Add Japan to that mix, and the die is cast.
For that reason, the default in the US is simply a loaded gun at China's head. As long as the default keeps Americans scared of buying at Walmart, money doesn't flow out of the US into China. Soon enough, the workers in China have to be laid off or fired. In China, no work means starvation. Massive unemployment means famine on a grand scale...which leads to revolution and the dissolution of the PRC.
This is what the Republican House in Congress has decided to do to China in order to break it up into its seven constituent elements. The default is simply another financial weapon employed by the US to ensure that China will never win the Battle of the Senkakus in 2017, because a Japan that goes to war against China and beats that monstrosity will then become a greater threat to world peace.
The default is simply an end-run so that Japan will not militarize any further and become the dominant military force in all of Asia.

Well, since Japan will sink the PLA Navy and down the PLA Air Force in 2017 during the Battle of the Senkakus, the American marines will no longer be needed in Okinawa by 2020.
Sounds like good reasoning and a win-win for us all.

Ben Bernanke is our greatest Cool War warrior. He flooded the emerging economies with "Hot Money" to inflate and overheat China's economy with easy credit, which is now being taken away. (Check out what that means if you want a full understanding of how devastating a weapon this is, which was aimed at China and was fired at China and is now entering the body economic of China, as well as its body politic).
The Hot Money bullet Bernanke fired at China is now in the process of bursting the bubble of every emerging economy which China requires for its exports. When each of those dominoes falls and Japan further curbs its own economic support of China, Chinese workers will lose their jobs and find solace in blaming their government and toppling it...with the final intention being seven smaller new countries where once stood the PRC.
All hail, Bernanke, the greatest Cool War warrior!

Japan was fine until the PRC decided to play games over the sovereignty of the Ryuku Islands, which include the Senkakus, and Okinawa. Yes, the Chinese played games to wake "extreme nationalism" in the Japanese people. Now, the Chinese are afraid of what the finally awaking Japanese will do.
Yes, Just as the Germans who were defeated in WWI were able to revitalize their country in less than one decade and challenge the entire world in WWII, the Japanese are now on the same track after WWII to challenge China and whatever of its allies it can muster in WWIII.
The US and most Western nations and most South China Sea nations stand shoulder to shoulder with our Japanese friends to stop the arrogant PRC from dominating Southeast Asia. We are glad the Chinese decided to wake Japan's extreme nationalism in order to combat the arrogance of Chinese economic advancement.
In the Battle of the Senkakus in 2017, Japan will sink every PLA Navy vessel and down every PLA Air Force plane in order to free the region of this monster which has threatened the sovereignty of so many of its neighbors. YAY, Japan. Put China on a leash.

Well, two is a good beginning, but Japan needs at least three carriers of this size before war breaks out.
While I'm not against Japan having larger carriers, this particular size is better suited for the Battle of the Senkakus in 2017, after the reconstituted Japanese Imperial Army destroys China's onshore batteries and missile emplacements.
It's all pretty simple. China is going down in less than four years in order to "re-balance Asia" with seven new countries where once there was the PRC. Hang on, Taiwan. You'll never have to be part of that lumbering monster Mao created.

The Chinese refuse to see the new reality, that they have hit the economic wall of high expectation, because it is so different from what they see now. Everyone else knows that the PRC is doomed. Look at your water. Look at your air. Look at food that is homegrown. All poisonous. Look at your exports. Look at the corruption among the elites. Look at how many enemies you have made. I can't celebrate the fact of the PRC's disintegration, because of the social upheaval that it will cause in Uighur, Inner Mongolia, Tibet and Manchuria. But at least, they'll finally be free.
The end is nigh for the PRC, just as it was for the Soviet Union. This is good news for the rich coastal cities, which have had to share their wealth with the poor hinterlands, especially with Xi now pushing for more socialism at the expense of your newly rich capitalists. Just as the mayor of Moscow, Boris Yeltzin, became the president of Russia when it all fell apart, the mayor equivalents of the largest cities in the PRC will be the new leaders of the three new Han countries, based on the cultural watersheds of China's three principal rivers.
Yes, there will be PLA warlords who will try to topple these newly democratic countries, as they vie amongst each other to establish military dictatorships in the Yangste People's Republic, the Yellow River Federation and the Oriental Pearl. They'll succeed for a time, but history will return these seven new countries to democratic prosperity among friendly neighbors in global peace.

Poor Xi. He's the man who has to orchestrate the PRC's decline, now that China's economy has hit the Great Wall of unattainable expectation, since the Western World will no longer finance the Chinese economy. Nearly one billion Chinese live in absolute low-grade poverty with China's overall GDP per capita being equivalent of dirt-poor Dominican Republic. Sure, some 300 million Han Chinese live at the same level as the rest of the First World, but the extremely vast majority of the Chinese don't, with an income of approximately $1,700 a year. That is contemptible for a country building a large military and venturing into space. Take care of your poor first.
Now that the PRC's economic decline has begun, the major shift in the international order is already well recognized as the retreat of China's role in East Asia and in the South China Sea. China's ability to project military power in Asia has been substantially overestimated, especially by its people. Its geography limits its ability to project power in Eurasia, an endeavor that would require logistics far beyond China's capacity. And, now that the economy has turned, the Chinese will never acquire the naval might to project power significantly in the Pacific either.
In fact, its naval capacity is still rather limited when compared with Japan, which far surpasses Great Britain's own naval capabilities. The idea that the PRC will compensate for internal economic problems by genuine (as opposed to rhetorical) military action in the Senkakus or in the South China Sea is therefore unlikely. China has a genuine internal security problem that will suck the lifeblood out of the PLA, which remains a domestic security force. The PLA will continue flexing its muscles in actions of little value, as far as geographical expansion in securing its very suspect core interests in South China and East Asia.

Sorry, we just can't allow a country of 1.32 billion people to have such an overpowering effect on the world. Once, China restructures into units no larger than 300 million under such names as the Yangtze People's Republic, the Yellow River Federation and the Oriental Pearl (commiserate with the cultural watersheds of China's three principal rivers), the future will be bright. Right now, the PRC is too large and has "unbalanced" the scales in Asia. So, we will re-balance Asia by forcing the PRC to devolve into six constituent democracies, three of which will be Han Chinese, as enumerated above.
The other three countries are the former colonies of the PRC, meaning
Tibet, Uighur, and Inner Mongolia (which itself will coalesce with
Outer Mongolia to reform the Mongolian nation). There is already some
indication that Manchuria may actually form a seventh new nation from
the tottering behemoth of the PRC. That's up to the Manchurians, and we
will support them in this, if they so choose.
So, as you can see, we're absolutely truthful with you when we say we
are not trying to contain China. No, our intention is to re-balance
Asia to create a more prosperous world less likely to drag us into
WWIII. For instance, the Yangtze People's Republic will be on a more
equal level, both militarily and commercially, in dealing with South
Korea and the Philippines and Vietnam and the Oriental Pearl in solving
territorial, financial, export/import matters than this "unbalanced"
monster called the PRC.
Just hang in there. It's all going to happen by 2017, following the Battle of the Senkakus.

And, to reciprocate, the US is training Japanese soldiers and sailors in San Diego. The drill, which ends June 28, will train Japanese troops to deploy swiftly to defend territory. Japan is sending three warships, about 10,000 service members and about four combat helicopters to the so-called Dawn Blitz exercise, Inoue said. Forces from New Zealand and Canada also will take part.
The troops will practice an amphibious assault on San Clemente Island, a naval training ground off San Diego's coast, as training for the Senkakus, and also conduct a mock beach invasion at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, as training for the Chinese mainland.
Japan's navy is among the world's best-equipped and best-trained, but its skills at storming beaches and other amphibious capabilities have been weak since its national defense force formed in the 1950s. Most Asian countries welcome a more capable Japanese force, that is also closely allied to U.S. forces, to counter Chinese belligerence in the South China and East China Seas.

Have you ever heard the expression, "Hot Money." Bernanke is one of our greatest warriors in dismantling Red China. We have recently convinced PM Abe to join us in forcing the BOJ into creating more hot money that will be pumped into Hong Kong and from there into the Chinese economy, creating massive inflation and seeming wealth.
After all, that hot money from Quantitative Easing by Bernanke is not creating inflation in the US, is it? Only in China. Now we need the BOJ to join us in creating more hot money that will not affect inflation in Japan but create a bigger asset bubble in the Chinese economy. Together, we'll blow the yuan to smithereens.
You remember that expression, the inscrutable mind. That's America, dude, not China. We are inscrutable, and you have no idea on how many fronts we are attacking China for daring to question the sovereignty of the Senkakus.

There can be no Chinese dream while the government exercises repression of free thought and expression. You know that!
The price of innovative thought is very high, because for each great human mind that invents the new Apple or Microsoft juggernaut for industry, at least one crazy is allowed to develop his own free thought and expression.
China can't allow that. Too many in China would go crazy with free thought and expression. Consequently, China cannot allow the next technological juggernaut to think freely, lest he also be a crazy man or woman.
In the United States, we are secure with who we are. We love our country for what it is. We bear the burden of allowing the crazies the same level of free thought and expression as our own juggernaut thinkers. It's the price of freedom.
America can afford free thinkers. China cannot. Until the PRC devolves into six constituent democracies, China cannot afford free-thinking individuals to innovate and create a future yet unforeseen. Until the PRC devolves, the Chinese must content themselves with stealing Western ideas, patents and copyrights, because China is restricted to picking the dead bones of capitalism.
We so pity China, which has so much potential to be a boon to mankind, because China's salvation is as simple as dissolving the PRC into manageable entities based on ethnic realities. Remember that China is "not" synonymous with the PRC; China existed before the PRC; The Chinese will continue to exist long after the PRC. Come join with us. The future is nigh!

You do know that this is just a ploy to get Japan to give up the Senkakus, right? By also claiming Okinawa, they believe they can scare Japan into a compromise where China will give up all claims to Okinawa in return for getting the Senkaku Islands. This is all so blatantly malicious and duplicitous that you should just LAUGH at how clumsy and juvenile the PRC is as a supposed world-class state.
We will all be better served when the PRC devolves into six constituent democracies, three of which will be Han Chinese based on the cultural watersheds of China's three principal rivers, meaning the Yangtze People's Republic, the Yellow River Federation and the Oriental Pearl.

es, we have to hype the China threat...because we're going to war in 2017. Mostly, the Japanese may do it all, because they will soon be capable of destroying the PLA navy and air force. Let's not forget that the Japanese military is already much larger than Great Britain's and far superior in technological warcraft to both Britain and the PRC.
With Abe re-militarizing Japanese industry, using the TPP as an economic support, 2017 is optimal for the re-conquest of China and the reformation of the PRC into six constituent democracies, three of which will be Han Chinese based on the cultural watersheds of China's three principal rivers, meaning the Yangtze People's Republic, the Yellow River Federation and the Oriental Pearl. The other three countries are the former colonies of the PRC, meaning Tibet, Uighur, and Inner Mongolia (which itself will coalesce with Outer Mongolia to reform the Mongolian nation).
Yes, we're hyping the China threat. There's nothing you can do about it. We intend war. The only thing that could stop it is the PRC itself breaking apart into its constituent elements. Then, of course, we'd have no pretext for war.
