U.S. vs. China: “Years of classified Pentagon war games strongly suggest that the U.S. military would lose that war”

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

If China decided to invade Taiwan and the U.S. intervened, who do you think would win that war?  Of course most Americans would assume that the U.S. would easily win such a conflict, but according to a report that was just put out by Yahoo News, “years of classified Pentagon war games strongly suggest that the U.S. military would lose that war”.  The Chinese have been preparing for an invasion of Taiwan for decades, but meanwhile the U.S. military has been focused on other priorities.  As a result, the balance of power in that region has dramatically shifted, and the U.S. is at a clear disadvantage.

The War that Lies Ahead

by Hugo Salinas Price, Plata:

Are World Wars a thing of the past?

Will there never, ever be a Third World War?

From recent news, it appears that Russia has developed new, monstrous weapons of inconceivable destructive power, to be delivered by intercontinental missiles. It certainly doesn’t sound like the Russian government regards war as a thing of the past.

Russia has only one potential enemy – the USA. The USA is the only candidate as a victim of Russian weaponry – and for good reasons.

“Biden Has Had More Attacks on Syria than He’s had Press Conferences” – Rep. Matt Gaetz RIPS Joe Biden, Suggests Transition to Kamala Has Already Begun (VIDEO)

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures earlier today.

In the interview Gaetz blasted President Joe Biden for not holding a press conference since entering office. Biden is the first US President NOT to hold a press conference in his first 30 days.

9 Signs That Chess Pieces Are Being Moved Into Place For A Major War In The Middle East

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The American people are really going to regret putting the warmongers back in control.  Joe Biden has been in the White House for less than two months, and the warmongers that Biden has surrounded himself with have been feverishly setting the stage for the next war in the Middle East.  I do not believe that it will start within the next week, but I do believe that it is inevitable.  While President Trump was in the White House for four years, the U.S. didn’t start any new conflicts, but now the Biden administration is quite determined to start projecting “American influence” all over the globe once again.  Most Americans don’t understand the bigger picture, but the truth is that this is going to have very serious implications over the next few years.

Pentagon Could Use Some Cancel Culture

by William J. Astore, Consortium News:

Cancel culture is a common, almost viral, term in political and social discourse these days. Basically, somebody expresses views considered to be outrageous or vile or racist or otherwise insensitive and inappropriate. In response, that person is “canceled,” perhaps losing a job or otherwise sidelined and silenced. In being de-platformed by Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites, for instance, this country’s previous president has, it could be argued, been canceled — at least by polite society. More than a few might add, good riddance.

The Vested Power Brokers Are Making Putin Public Enemy No. 1

by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:

It came to me like a bolt from the sky. The reason nothing ever changes is because powerful forces want things this way. In chaos and crisis, I mean. It’s been right there in front of us, all along. But it took an interchange in 2018 between Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, and American journalist Megyn Kelly to smack me awake. What’s interesting, is how easy it is to see who these “forces” are, and who is creating the narrative that fuels today’s fearsome reality.

Bipartisan Group of Senators Introduce Legislation to Strip Joe Biden of War Powers

by Joshua Caplan, Breitbart:

A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators — led by Todd Young (R-IN) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) — introduced legislation Wednesday that would strip President Joe Biden of war powers by repealing both the 1991 and 2002 authorizations for the use of military force (AUMF) in the Middle East.

The move comes in response to Biden’s recent airstrikes in eastern Syria, which were launched without congressional approval. The decision to launch the strike followed the shelling of an Iraqi military base that houses U.S. troops. The rocket attack left one civilian contractor dead and nine others wounded. A U.S. service member was among those hurt.

Is Biden Reenlisting in the Forever Wars?

by Pat Buchanan, Townhall:

Thursday, in its first military action, the Biden Pentagon sent two U.S. F-15Es to strike targets of Kataib Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Iraqi militia just inside the eastern border of Syria.

The U.S. strikes were in retaliation for a missile attack on a U.S. base in Irbil, capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, which killed a contractor and wounded a U.S. soldier.

“We’re confident that the target was being used by the same Shia militia that conducted the strikes,” said Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

Biden’s Syria Attack: An Actual Impeachable Offense

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Last Thursday President Biden continued what has sadly become a Washington tradition: bombing Syria. The President ordered a military strike near the Iraqi-Syrian border that killed at least 22 people. The Administration claims it struck an “Iranian-backed” militia in retaliation for recent rocket attacks on US installations in Iraq.

As with Presidents Obama and Trump before him, however, Biden’s justification for the US strike and its targets is not credible. And his claim that the US attack would result in a “de-escalation” in the region is laughable. You cannot bomb your way toward de-escalation.

Reports: Biden Regime Setting Up New Military Base in Syria

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

The Biden regime is setting up a new Coalition military base in northeastern Syria at the Iraq-Syria-Turkey triangle, according to reports.

If true, this would explain why Biden sent a large military convoy to northeastern Syria just one day after taking office.

The Saudi-funded, London-based paper Asharq Al-Awsat broke the news on Monday:

If America Splits Up, What Happens to the Nukes?

by Ryan McMaken, Mises Institute:

Opposition to American secession movements often hinges on the idea that foreign policy concerns trump any notions that the United States ought to be broken up into smaller pieces.

It almost goes without saying that those who subscribe to neoconservative ideology or other highly interventionist foreign policy views treat the idea of political division with alarm or contempt. Or both.

They have a point. It’s likely that were the US to be broken up into smaller pieces, it would be weakened in its ability to act as a global hegemon, invading foreign nations at will, imposing “regime change,” and threatening war with any regime that opposes the whims of the American regime.
