The Russia-Ukraine conflict is very similar to the Chinese-Taiwan conflict. NATO and the EU in Ukraine are a big threat to Russia. The same can be said about Taiwan. NATO in Taiwan will be a threat to China. So, this is the next big problem for the United States.
The tension is rising, and China is building up its military bases and have 14 warplanes in Taiwan`s air-defense zone.
President Biden said yesterday in a speech in Tokyo that he vows to intervene militarily if China invades Taiwan. «We have a commitment to do that,» Biden said. But that is not an official U.S policy. Is Biden trying to change U.S policy?
The U.S officials walked back Biden`s comments quite quickly and said this after his speech: «As the President said, our policy has not changed. He reiterated our One China policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.»
The Taiwan Relations Act obligates the U.S to enable Taiwan to maintain a sufficient self-defense capability, and maintain the capacity of the U.S to resist any resort to force. But despite U.S weapons sales to Taiwan, the U.S has been ambiguous about whether it would intervene militarily, and the U.S acknowledges that all Chinese on both sides of the Taiwan Strait maintain that there is one China, and Taiwan is a part of China, as Biden reiterated yesterday.
In a speech in Japan yesterday, president Biden said; «We agree with the one-China policy. We have signed on to it and all the attendant agreements are made from there. But the idea that it can be taken by force, will dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine. And so it`s a burden that is even stronger.»
China`s reaction to President Biden`s comments on Taiwan came very quickly: «China will take firm actions to safeguard its sovereignty and security interests. We mean what we say.»
What China wants is reunification. So, China is right now threatening Taiwan militarily.
The U.S policy dates back to December 15, 1978, when Jimmy Carter restored relations with Beijing and ended formal ties with Taipei (capital of Taiwan). Taiwan is a big chip-maker, and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said intense economic talks with Taiwan will take place in the weeks to come.
Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Wang Wenbin said this yesterday:
«The US has been racking its brains to play with words when it comes to the one-China principle. I want to remind the US side that no forces, the US included, can hold back the Chinese people’s endeavor to reunify the nation. Also, no forces, the US included, can change the fate of the “Taiwan independence” forces who are doomed to fail.
Reneging on its promise on the Taiwan question, the US has obscured and hollowed out the one-China principle, and publicly or stealthily incited and endorsed “Taiwan independence” separatist activities. If the US continues to go down the wrong path, there will be irretrievable consequences for the China-US relations and the US will have to pay unbearable price.
Our stern warning to the US: There is but one China in the world, Taiwan is part of China’s territory and the government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China. This is a consensus of the international community and a commitment made by the US to China.
The one-China principle is unshakable, China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity cannot be violated and the red line of avoiding creating “two Chinas” and “one China, one Taiwan” must not be crossed.
China has full confidence and capability and is fully prepared to firmly stem the “Taiwan independence” separatist activities, foil all external interference and resolutely uphold its sovereignty and territorial integrity. I’d like to advise the US to listen to a well-known Chinese song with these lyrics: “For our friends, we have fine wine. For jackals or wolves, we welcome with shotguns.”
It is 20 years since the worst terrorist attacks on the United States of America on morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Ordinary people doesn`t buy the official story and believe that the government are hiding the truth.
Let`s take a look at the official story first, and then look at another conspiricy theory.
The Septemmber 11 attacks, often referred to as 9/11, were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the militant Islamist terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States of America on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
On that morning, four commercial airlines traveling from the northeastern United States to California were hijacked mid-flight by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. The hijackers were organized into three groups of five hijackers and one group of four.
Each group had one hijacker who had received flight training and took over control of the aircraft. Their explicit goal was to crash each plane into a prominent American building, causing mass casualities and partial or complete destruction of the targeted buildings.
The first plane to hit its target was American Airlilnes Flight 11. It was flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center comples in Lower Manhattan at 08:46 am. Seventeen minutes later at 09:03 am, the World Trade`s Center`s South Tower was hit by United Airlines Flight 175.
Botth 110-story towers collapsed within an hour and forty-two minutes, leading to the collapse of the other World Trade Center structures including 7 World Trade Center, and significantly damaging surrounding buildings.
A third flight, American Airlines Flight 77, flown from Dulles International Airport, was hijacked over Ohio. At 09:37 am, it crashed into the west side of the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, causing a partial collapse of the building`s side.
The fourth, and final flight, United Airlines Flight 93, was flown in the direction of Washington, D.C. This flight was the only plane not to hit its intended target, instead crashing in a field near Shanksville, Pennesylvania at 10:03 am.
The plane`s passengers attempted to regain control of the aircraft away from the hijackers and ultimately diverted the flight from its intended target. Investigators determined that Flight 93`s target was either the White House or the U.S Capitol.
This is the reason why so many speek about Flight 93 and the hero`s on that plane.
The attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. It remains the deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 340 and 72 killed, respcetively.
The destruction of the World Trade Center and nearby infrastructure seriously harmed the economy of New York City and creataed a global economic recession. Many countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded the powers of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to prevent terrorist attacks.
The U.S and Canadian civilian airspaces were closed until September 13, while Wall Street trading was closed until September 17. Many closings, evacuations, and cancellations followed, out of respect or fear of further attacks.
They said Bin Laden orchestrated the attacks. He initially denied involvment, but later raecanted his false statements. Al Jazeera broadcast a statment by him on September 16, 2001: «I stress that I have not carried out this act, which appeaars to have been carried out by individuals with their own motivation.»
In November 2001, U.S forces recovered a videotape from a destroyed house in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. In the video, bin Laden is seen talking to Khaled al-Harbi and admits foreknowledge of the attacks. On December 27, 2001, a second bin Laden video was released. In the video he said:
«It has become clear that the West in general and America in particular have an unspeakable hatred for Islam…. It is the hatred of crusaders. Terrorism against America deserves to be praised because it was a response to injustice, aimed at forcing America to stop its support for Israel, which kill our people…..
We say that the end of the United States is imminent, whether Bin Laden or his followers are alive or dead, for the awakening of the Muslim ummah (nation) has occurred…. It is important to hit the economy (of the U.S), which is the base of its military power…. if the economy is hit they will become reoccupied». – Osama bin Laden.
It must be something wrong here, because in my recent article, I wrote about Afghanistan. Right after the Soviet invation, the US President Jimmy Carter said that the Soviet can now control much of the world`s oil supply, and that was a big threat to peace.
The U.S supported Mujahideen with money and weapons, and US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brezezinski appeared to Afghanistan`s religion pride in 1980 when he visited Pakistan. One day, he said; «you will take your country back because God is on your side.»
Mujahideen, or mujahidin, is the plural form of mujahid, an Arabic term that broadly refers to Islamic guerrillas who engage in jihad, interpreted by some Muslims as the fight of behalf of God, religion or the community.
You see? The US supported Mujahideen on the right side, and they both went to war against the communists that took control in Kabul together with the communists from Soviet on the same team.
The communists on the left side doesn`t believe in God. Nor do they like any religion at all. Just take a look at the communists in China. They send all the Muslims in «training camps.»
Author David Icke has a different story, and he claim he knows the truth in his book «The trigger.» The lie that changed the world. He claim that he know who really did it and why they did it.
He believes that with freedom being deleted by the day that someone has to have the courage to call out those transforming human society into a global prison camp in which only the «right» opinion and iformation are allowed.
It is a fat book and I spent most of my time reading it this summer, and the central theme of this book «the trigger» is what happened on 9/11 and the force that was really behind those attacks. No, it`s not 19 «islamic extremists» who somehow flew big commercial jets with fantastic skill while being dubbed incompetent by flying instructors in one-enigne «puddle-jumpers».
«The trigger» , however is not only about 9/11. In exposing the network that orchestrated and covered-up the horrific attakcs, Icke reveals the force that is dictating your life in increasingly fine detail and leading the world along a dark and dangerous road to total Orwellian global control.
Let me put it this way: 9/11 was an attack on the democracy. They attacked WTC, but flight 93 saved the White House. Right after that the Intel started a war on terror. But the war on terror was a war on ordinary people. This is why some people believe it was an inside job.
The same happened on January 6th this year. People stormed Capitol Hill, and that was also an attack on the democracy. We all know that the police in D.C helped people to storm the Capitol. Some of the people who stormed the Capitol was former military personel.
Right after they stormed Capitol Hill, they started a war on ordinary people. Again. They say it is a war on terror, but the war on terror is a war on ordinary people.
9/11 is still an open case and the whole world is waiting for the truth.
