In his recent Asia Times op-ed, Brandon J. Weichert warns, “When fear, honor, blood, interest and ambition are on the line, do not expect reason to win the day.”
Brandon J. Weichert sat down with Steve Schiller of the Steel on Steel radio program to discuss the ongoing Shadow War between the United States and China. Bottom line: whatever Trump does, the Chinese threat is not going away. Listen in for more details.
“In fact, President Woodrow Wilson had made clear his antipathy to all forms of empire. Rather than merely sending American doughboys to end the war in the entente’s favor, Wilson insisted on fighting to end all war while simultaneously ending empire itself. Wilson envisaged a postwar order that forced all European empires to abandon their overseas colonies, embraced free trade, and made their markets open to American goods while opening their polities to American ideals. Essentially, Wilson wanted a postwar scenario in which all empires lost.”
Clearly, history has returned to Europe. And with the return of history has also come the return of geopolitics and the need for traditional military force. If France and Germany want to build their combined military force to balance against the Americans, let them. If Berlin and Paris want to try to make nice with Moscow, let them try that, too.
“For the first time in decades, the United States is competing against a rival whom, in many respects, it has fallen behind. First, American leaders must fully acknowledge the threat. Then the U.S. must move to do what the Spanish failed to do to the rising United States: challenge it early enough to head off any real threat.”
“Japan is America’s ace-in-the-hole when it comes to China. The United States should encourage Japan to take greater levels of active defense of their homeland, and to become a normal country with a military force again. After all, Japan’s military and not China’s is the most advanced and capable military in the Asia-Pacific today. Fully normalizing their country’s armed forces could solidify this fundamental truth and put the Chinese back on their heels, buying America much-needed time to solidify its own global dominance, and to keep China back.”
“In The Weichert Report’s forthcoming EBOOK ‘Strategies for Countering the Real Russian Threat In 2018,’ you will be given an in-depth assessment on Russian capabilities and intentions in all four of these threat areas. More importantly, you will see that Russia is far from being a monolithic juggernaut, and that the United States has the means to counter and rollback these Russian threats outside of the military realm.”

In this new article on the Chinese and Russian alliance (a.k.a Chussia), I posit that it is neither as strong nor as durable as many mainstream Western analysts claim (the same analysts who have missed every major global event these last few years). In fact, this article outlines why the Sino-Russian relationship is weakening and how the next couple of years are a pristine opportunity for America to cleave Russia away from China.
Turkey has just accused the United States of supporting terrorist groups in Syria. I explain how they are wrong and why I find this claim not only absurd and laughable, but also disgustingly hypocritical.
