Once a year throughout the world, the biggest and best showcase their armed forces.
Rightly or wrongly I look at them and think Oh S H I T ! !! !! !!!!!!!!!!!!
Have you ever watched the Youtube worlds armies showcase they aptly call HELL MARCH? All the leading contenders are on there.
Some more embarrassingly than others.
Now I’m not putting anyone down here but with so much military on show, by some of the most powerful armies in the world, why the hell would anyone want to start a punch up with forces that is numerically greater, technically more advanced, some who don’t give a shit about the niceties of the Geneva convention or probably worry about chucking a few crowd pleasing nukes round the place?
So when I see a foreign power like Russia and China displaying it’s worth, to me it’s a ‘gentle’ way of saying quite plainly “Don’t mess with us”. So why isn’t anyone listening?
As for taking on China?
Whatever is in the Pentagon tea, it needs changing, because it is inducing suicidal tendencies.
There are a number of theories been put forward for the US-Led NATO’s stance.
- You have to stand up to tyrants.
(Um, Just like Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein)
I’ll always remember the media clip where a man said “He (Hussein) was bad but at least the water flowed, now we have nothing.”
(The Taliban, the all new updated Mujahideen)
That wasn’t quite a retreat but like Russia found, they’ve never been beaten.
- If you show strength they will back down.
(Which sort of brings in Assad as a tyrant).
Russia. Really frightened and ignoring the ponces in the UN (and Obama) they stepped into Syria and whopped shit out of the terrorists (moderate or not). Their showcase of weaponry (whether NATO and hanger on’s admit it) scared the shit out of the ‘allied forces’. Their progress was (and is) fast and to the point.
- So to prove how hostile Russia was, NATO started surrounding Russia with bases which has started a dangerous game of move and counter move.
Only Russia plays chess to win.
- Hang on though, I’ve forgotten China.
They built an island. WRONG. They militarised it. WRONG and very WRONG.
They claimed a whole sea, somewhere called the South China Sea,
WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!
The US Navy started sailing past it. The Chinese diplomatically told them to stop.
They ignored that, and I’m betting the only thing that stopped attack was the Chinese thinking “Not yet, not quite, soon. Of course the US navy thought it a victory.
Still the games continued and with their best buddies the Russians they held dual NAVY maneuvers in the Black Sea. HUGE WRONG.
The US moaned a bit more so the best buddies did what comes naturally to superior forces, they just ignored the insects.
- NATO is all-powerful, everyone bows to their dictates.
- The West is all-powerful, we tell you what is right.
Now I’m pretty certain that the West’s role as police to the world is coming to the end.
Once thought of as a necessity it is now so woven with political nonsense and big business considerations, it has largely lost the respect of everyone.
Probably also because I can’t actually write down one time that their intervention has worked in modern times. They achieved their immediate goals is true enough, then they left. What happened then was what was left rapidly dissolved into anarchy.
Of course I could be wrong, so please tell me of one success story and I’ll amend my words.
So, back to Russia, seeing as though the Chinese aren’t ready to play.
The West has never understood their mindset.
They can’t match their touch round the world (which is curiously the same as China).
While some Western countries claim to be rich and scorn at Russia and China, that is not a measure of a country’s strength.
It can’t be as the combined national debt of NATO countries amounts to 33 trillion (plus loose change) in USD
While Russia’s national debt is 516 Billion USD
And China’s national debt is 5 ½ trillion USD
Combined 6 trillion USD.
All figures sort of right using CIA workbooks and world debt clocks.
Plus the darn figures keep on increasing too fast for me to type EXCEPT for Iceland.
Why is that I wonder?
Now right through this post you’ll notice a bias.
I don’t like NATO, they are dangerous as are the self-appointed meddlers in other people’s business. There is always a hidden agenda, usually big business, never truly altruistic.
As if we haven’t got enough troubles in the world why do these two combined ‘entities’ keep making more enemies for us (Joe and Jane Doe) to fight?
Currently, in my completely blinkered view, there are only three enemies and one is a religion so the normal rules of war can’t apply.
Between them they are killing my country as it will yours.
You want an enemy, a global enemy, take those ones on.
Only there isn’t a big enough business advantage to doing that is there.
Politics and religion.
Both are driven by big business and all three trying to take over the world.
