An Inevitable Headache: US Allies Sell Defense Technology to China

An Inevitable Headache: US Allies Sell Defense Technology to ChinaIf Edward Snowden’s revelations about the United States’ global surveillance activities taught U.S. allies anything, it’s that on the world stage, even your closest friends can’t be trusted. The United States has recently been feeling the sting in a similar way – not because of espionage, but because its allies are hemorrhaging valuable defense technology to China. Recent reports suggest that the United States’ European allies and Israel have exported or had made plans to export sensitive defense technology to China.

According to Reuters, “If the People’s Liberation Army went to war tomorrow, it would field an arsenal bristling with hardware from some of America’s closest allies: Germany, France and Britain.” Reuters substantiates this claim – Chinese advanced surface warships largely field French and German diesel engine designs under the hood; Chinese destroyers field French sonar technology, as do anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters and surface-to-air missiles; British propulsion technology and airborne early warning radars can be found in several PLA fighters, bombers, and anti-ship aircraft. Additionally, “some of China’s best attack and transport helicopters rely on designs from Eurocopter, a subsidiary of pan-European aerospace and defense giant EADS.”

Chinese aggression aimed at US

henry-gruver-russian-invasion-of-america-last-daysSWITZERLAND, Zurich — In the very near future, the Chinese military will launch an unprovoked wave of attacks—starting with the islands of Japan and Hawaii and ending with twin nuclear detonations in the U.S. cities of San Francisco, California and Seattle, Washington.

The Chinese will start their attacks in the East and make their way West with the use of a radar cloaking technology which will render their drones, planes, ships and submarines invisible to U.S. military defense systems. Once in the clear, Chinese subs will likely launch a pair of unmanned drones which will be outfitted to carry nuclear warheads to their respective targets.

The notion of a Chinese nuclear attack on the United States was openly flaunted on October 31, 2013, when the Chinese government released a nuclear blast map projection for the U.S. cities of Seattle and Los Angeles, after they were struck by Chinese nuclear warheads (see photo below). A few weeks later on December 17, 2013, a Chinese rover diorama showed Europe being nuked, another ominous sign that a Chinese nuclear strike against the Full Article Here

China’s gold import surge

December 20, 2013 Comments off

The Chinese state could be behind a surge in bullion imports that will see China overtake India as the world’s largest consumer of gold, according to one of the sector’s most influential investors.

Evy Hambro, chief investment officer of BlackRock’s Natural Resources Equity team, said the investment community had been surprised by the amount of gold flowing into China given its position as the world’s biggest gold producer.

“The total amount of gold being consumed in China is a gigantic quantum and you have to wonder where that gold is going,” he said in an interview with the Financial Times. “Is it going on to wrists, ears and necks or is it going into state reserves?”

The People’s Bank of China has not provided an update on its bullion reserves since 2009, when it reported a holding of 1,054 tonnes. But the suspicion among some analysts is that China’s central bank has purchased up to 300 tonnes of gold this year.

If there was “clarity” on imports, Mr Hambro said it could provide a prop for the gold price, which has fallen sharply this year.

“I think we will need some clarity and that will really set the tone for gold in China in 2014,” he said. ”If it does start to show that some of it has gone into state hands that will be very supportive for the gold market.”

Bullion has lost more than a quarter of its value this year, falling from

China Moon Landing A Military Threat

December 19, 2013 Comments off

americanthinker.com

China’s December 15th soft-landing of an unmanned spacecraft on the moon was celebrated by the Xinhua news agency as, “The dream for lunar exploration once again lights up the China Dream.” China’s neighbors saw the action as a nightmare demonstration of China’s ability to launch a Multiple Reentry Vehicle ballistic missile, whose payload can deploy multiple nuclear warheads aimed to hit a group of targets. China’s provocative moves are creating a muscular arms race in Asia.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace published a major report last May arguing China would be a “coercive power” in enforcement of its way with Japan, but emphasized that economic interdependence with the United States and the rest of Asia would prevent a major Cold-War style confrontation with China in the region. Carnegie claimed that despite hawkish rhetoric from Japan’s new Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan’s economic troubles and political paralysis would prevent it from countering China’s increasing military capabilities. Carnegie obviously failed to consider Japan’s last two decades of increasing militarization. When it comes to intimidation, Japan and an increasing number of Asian nations will aggressively confront China.

As I reported on December 3rd in “Energy Drives Asian Military Confrontation,” China and other Asian export economies are at risk of losing tens of millions of manufacturing jobs due to America’s huge advantage in energy cost from fracking more than offsetting Asia’s traditional labor cost advantage. China announced last month that it would begin enforcing an expanded offshore Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) as sovereign territory that would capture the  Full Article Here

U.S. Warns China Over East China Sea Maritime Grab

The Pentagon invoked a U.S. defense treaty with Japan and warned China on Saturday that its declaration of an air defense zone over the East China Sea is increasing the danger of military conflict.

Both Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel issued statements late Saturday expressing “deep concern” over China’s creation of the air defense identification zone, or ADIZ, that extends over Japan’s Senkaku Islands, which China claims as its territory.

“We view this development as a destabilizing attempt to alter the status quo in the region,” Hagel said. “This unilateral action increases the risk of misunderstanding and miscalculations.”

Hagel then reaffirmed the U.S. military commitment to the 1952 U.S.-Japan Mutual Defense Treaty.

“The United States reaffirms its longstanding policy that Article V of the U.S. Japan Mutual Defense Treaty applies to the Senkaku Islands,” Hagel said.

A reference to the defense treaty is the clearest sign that the Pentagon fears China will use the creation of a new air defense zone to block U.S. and Japanese aircraft or ships from passing through the zone that includes large areas of international waters.

Such actions could set off the use of force and a Read more…

China limits world’s highest foreign currency reserves

November 21, 2013 Comments off

Reuters / Kacper Pempel China’s central bank has said it no longer sees any benefit in increasing its $3.66 trillion foreign currency reserves – already the world’s largest. China will cap its purchases of US dollars in an effort to limit the depreciation of the yuan.

“It’s no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves,” Bloomberg quoted Yi Gang, a deputy governor at the central bank as saying Tuesday.

Decreasing the influence of the dollar and other currencies is a step closer to reaching China’s 2015 goal to “float” its currency and according to the People’s Bank of China will help the everyday Chinese citizen.

Between July and September 2013 China’s increased its foreign – currency holdings by $166 billion, boosting it to the world’s highest of $3.66 trillion. This is also more that the Read more…
