CHINA’S EXPERTISE – PLAYING THE SHELL GAME

When it comes to lip service put China at the head of the class. We have observed their expertise for decades, they have perfected the ins and outs at playing the shell game; also known as 3 card monte. They have run with it ever since the first DVD was pirated. Always agreeing to prevent copyright and trademark violations while producing millions upon millions of knock-offs. When confronted with penalties they parse words, but it never stops.

In fact the seizures seen on TV are a public relations gimmick. Most of the pirated stuff is sold through various internet channels; it is impossible to stop them, let alone shut down their manufacturing operations. Moving at night from one factory to another is how the game is played. Look there and it is gone, a whack a mole operation for sure. However, to be more serious they have leveraged their know-how into the more dangerous political arena.

North Korea has become front and center. The boy dictator, the one with the zipp-do0, has followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. Both of them sucked the G-7 dry with promises of everlasting peace. You see how far appeasement has gotten them. Sweet deals for the one man mega maniac is like taking chocolate from a baby; this only emboldens them more. We can go on and on, but what is the use? For now is the time to put up or shut up. The ball is in China’s corner. Don’t be shocked if they sit on their hands and watch Trump sweat bullets, only to find out that he will not bluff.

The message sent to Assad is only a primer – expect North Korea to receive a more fatal blow. Trump is patiently assessing the situation while waiting for the next provocation and it will surely come. What we don’t know is when and where. Expect a wayward missile to hit dry land, maybe South Korea. This will set off a chain reaction – the keys to the response are many fold. Will the United States take out the Boy Wonder’s capability in on fell swoop, will there be an invasion, will conventional weapons enter the fray.

At this point the Commander in Chief’s plans are top secret, but the Syrian operation gives us a sign of things to come. Although the dynamics of war constantly change, the North Korean theater will be swift and resolute. The Trump MOAB hit on Syria was a wake-up call for those who instigate war. We would not be a bit surprised to see twenty Mother of All Bombs dumped on the boy buffoon.

Oh China, they will watch the fireworks display from afar. Trump knows the shell game all too well, seen it played many times on the streets of New York. You bet he is ready willing and able to shut down the Chinese operation. 

CHINESE CHECKERS – RUSSIAN CHESS ANYONE – BOMBS AWAY

Both China and Russia are very good at their game, they have perfected every counter move surreptitiously sucking in their prey. The United States, starting from the drubbing they took from Uncle Joe, to the playing of Obama like a cheap violin are in good hands with Rex Tillerson; don’t expect him to fall victim to the Chinese or Russian ruse.

China for instance has global ambitions of which no stone will be unturned.  We turn your attention to the Spatly Islands for example proving that words do not overcome might. Chinese mandarins have not shot their way into the controversy; what they have done is dared others to stop them – of course no one wants to pick a fight in which they would inevitable lose. So Japan, Viet Nam, Philippines and Thailand in reality are paper tigers without the wherewithal to wage battle.© Fabian Hamacher

The Russian bear resorts to military force, as in the Crimea takeover because for them power is only exercised at the point of a gun. Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are in their sight. Keep in mind that the Baltics constantly look over their shoulder for an attack by a wild bear; a real possibility. Testing others in the ramp up to battle is a time honored technique. How far can the bravado go without any push-back is the true measure of their bravado.

Under Obama there seem to be no limit for an aggressor. Bashar al-Assad proved his meddle with Russian backing. Red lines were only words, powerless without force. For now the Russians and Chinese find themselves in intractable positions. But a new man in town does not so easily bend at the knees. The President of the United States Barack Obama greets King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

Trump is no pushover like his predecessor. He is a hard nosed businessman whose learning curve in the ways of the powerful elite are much quicker than one expected. For example, Syria and Russia were sent a swift message via airmail destroying 20 of Assad’s aircraft. And a MOAB was unleashed in Afghanistan that targeted the ISIS underground network of tunnels. The GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, sometimes grimly called the “Mother of All Bombs” or “MOAB” because of its acronym, was loaded onto a pallet, flown in a C-130 cargo plane, then dragged out the back of the plane — pallet included — by a parachute.Preliminary results indicated dozens of ISIS fighters meeting their maker, dead and buried for good.

Next on the agenda is North Korea – Trump’s military are standing by, a red alert has been issued. Any moment now we expected North Korea to take one from the home team. One MOAB won’t do the job because Pyongyang has numerous assets on land and sea ready, willing and able to go into action. However, Trump will endeavor to destroy the Chinese puppet masters in an all-out surprise attack. This will be coming to a theater near you. We know it will happen soon because the Boy Leader is egging for a fatal engagement. Trump, we are certain gave Xi the ultimatum, stop nuclear ambitions of Kim Jung-un.  Don’t expect this to happen on Trump’s watch. Threats do not intimidate a psychopath. So let it be written, let it be done is Trumps counter to Xi. Kim Jong-Un Photorealistic-Sketch.jpg

Waiting in the curtain is IRAN and TURKEY.
