Red Dragon Phase – China Begins Omnidirectional Messaging Preparing Economic Trade Crisis…

Nuance and subtlety is everything in China.  Culturally harsh tones are seen as a sign of weakness and considered intensely impolite in public displays between officials; especially within approved and released statements by officials representing the government.

Historic Chinese cultural policy, the totalitarian control over expressed political sentiment and diplomacy through silence, is evident in the strategic use of the space between carefully chosen words, not just the words themselves.

China has no cultural or political space between peace and war; they are a historic nation based on two points of polarity.  They see peace and war as coexisting with each other. China accepts and believes opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.  Flowing between these polar states is a natural dynamic to be used -with serious contemplation- in advancing objectives as needed.

Peace or war. Win or lose. Yin and Yang. Culturally there is no middle position in dealings with China; they are not constitutionally capable of understanding or valuing the western philosophy of mutual benefit where concession of terms gains a larger outcome.  If it does not benefit China, it is not done. The outlook is simply, a polarity of peace or war.  In politics or economics the same perspective is true.  It is a zero-sum outlook.

Therefore, when you see China publicly use strong language – it indicates a level of internal disposition beyond the defined western angst.  Big Panda becomes Red Dragon; there is no mid-status or evolutionary phase.  Every American associated with investment, economics and China would be well advised to put their business affairs in order accordingly.

REUTERS […] Asked about calls from the United States, Japan and others for China to put more pressure on North Korea, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said it was not China ratcheting up tension and the key to a resolution did not lie with Beijing.

“Recently, certain people, talking about the Korean peninsula nuclear issue, have been exaggerating and giving prominence to the so-called ‘China responsibility theory.’

“I think this either shows lack of a full, correct knowledge of the issue, or there are ulterior motives for it, trying to shift responsibility.” “China has been making unremitting efforts and has played a constructive role, but all parties have to meet each other half way, Geng said.”

“Asking others to do work, but doing nothing themselves is not OK.” “Being stabbed in the back is really not OK.”

Geng told a daily news briefing, without naming any parties. (more)

Prepare your affairs accordingly.  President Trump will not back down from his position; the U.S. holds all of the leverage and the issue must be addressed.  The President and his team are entirely prepared for this.  We are going to economic war with China!

The Olive branch and arrows denote the power of peace and war. The symbol in any figure’s right hand has more significance than one in its left hand. Also important is the direction faced by the symbols central figure. The emphasis on the eagles stare signifies the preferred disposition. An eagle holding an arrow also symbolizes the war for freedom, and its use is commonly referred to the liberation fight of righteous people from abusive influence. The eagle on the original seal created for the Office of the President showed the gaze upon the arrows.

The Eagle and the Arrow – An Aesop’s Fable

An Eagle was soaring through the air. Suddenly it heard the whizz of an Arrow, and felt the dart pierce its breast. Slowly it fluttered down to earth. Its lifeblood pouring out. Looking at the Arrow with which it had been shot, the Eagle realized that the deadly shaft had been feathered with one of its own plumes.

Moral: We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.

    Apolgies in advance, but economics was never my strong suite: I’ve been told by a number of individuals who would know to think about steering investment $$ to “emerging markets.” Is that code for companies that do business in China? Or more generally in Asia? If we do a trade war with China, how would that impact emerging market investments? Thanks in advance, Treepers, for furthering my education….

      emerging markets are generally referred to anything not a developed country i e first world.. however the main ones would be the BRIC nations…. brazil, russia, india, china and

    Trump’s comments on China during the first debate were one of the main things that perked my ears up about him. I’d been waiting for decades for an American politician to say what he said: “The Chinese Businessmen are great people who make great deals that take care of their own people, and it’s time Americans do the same.” Well, that’s a paraphrase but the basic gist of it.

    Time for these ridiculous one-sided “deals” with China to end. Chinese are fabulous negotiators, we need to quit being losers and be fabulous, too.

      My uncle was Downtown VP of agricultural chemicals for Australasia for 25 years, and lived in Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea during that time. At the end of his long stint, I asked him who he hated do business with, and he said that the ink would not be dry on the contract with the Chinese before they would be trying to screw the other party, and we’re utterly untrustworthy. This was also my experience with them when I went to HE DURING those years… Greedy, greedy, greedy.

        Infrastructure Technology, Corporate espionage, Buying US companies, etc, etc. Spend some time in China and you will see how different things are if one is either going to school or working there. Foreigners are watched carefully in terms of their internet activity and the organizations they are employed with. Contrary to popular belief, China still keeps close tabs on anybody who is a westerner. The US on the other hand are more open society in terms of who they employ and what companies reveal as trade secrets and so forth.

          Agreed! Don’t start with me on China. After working on the Great Wall Hotel and throughout the 90’s in HK, I can show you my war wounds.


  3. Jedi9 says:

    This is a reminder why China! Lets not forget that the conversations recently involving NK and China is no coincidence! Is it no wonder that the US Navy is being hush hush on this? There are too many inconsistencies with this incident to be deemed just a coincidence.

    Decades overdue, but better late than never! Is especially fun to see how a few tweets, backed by actual resolve, can improve our position for trade negotiations worldwide, increase manufacturing and investment in the US, and set the stage to make North Korea become China’s problem (not ours).

    Cancelling all student Visas would get China’s attention. All children of ruling class come here for college.

      Whereby they obtain a US address to open a bank account and transfer money from their parents to purchase real estate and other assorted goodies (luxury muscle cars anybody?) to park all that illicit loot. Want to tick off the Chinese ruling class? Start publishing lists of the ruling class and their foreign assets. Or do like Vancouver BC and charge a 15% surtax on foreign real estate buyers.

      So do their common citizens. I have a Chinese friend whose family owns an export business in Shanghai. Her husband is an American educated corporate attorney who works for her family. Because she had nothing better to do with husband in school in Nebraska and baby back home with mother in China some friends advised her that she could tour the United States for practically nothing if she were to take a job in a Chinese buffet restaurant. That she did and was horrified at what she found.

      Almost all of the employees were young women. They shared a completely unfurnished rental house or apartment that was rented by the restaurant owner who was not an owner at all but worked for some entity back on the mainland. These workers worked up to 12 hours a day almost every day of the week and were only paid for eight hours if that. They were not permitted to take any food at all from the restaurant when they left at the end of their shift. They were permitted one brief phone call back to China once a month and even that came out of their wages.

      This type of restaurant set up is no more than a pipeline for Chinese to go all about the country hooking up with other Chinese people, sharing food and expenses as they travel about the U.S. usually so spend time in large metropolitan cities like NYC. Other than exploitation for purposes of labor, and probably a fat initial fee from their poor parents back home my friend was concerned for some of the younger girls who were prostituting themselves too young Mexican boys who were part of the same restaurant pipeline. She also said that Chinese people think that American people can’t tell the difference between a Mexican and a Chinaman and so they take money from these young men and their families and let them go from restaurant to restaurant to restaurants pretty much undetected.

      Since my friend was not a common Chinese peasant but came from a wealthy family she was appalled by what she found and contacted the Labor Relations folks who said they knew of the practices but could do nothing about it because it was so commonplace.

        I’ve tried to start friendly conversations with a server at a few of these you will never see a manager/minder show up faster. It is time to end slavery and indentured servitude in this country at least this should be a no brainer.

    “I think this either shows lack of a full, correct knowledge of the issue, or there are ulterior motives for it, trying to shift responsibility.”

    He can’t really think this, can he? The only reason NKorea exists at all, is because of Chinese intervention during the war…and the only reason it exists now, is because China is pretty much their only trading partner. To think that China isn’t “responsible” in some manner is delusional.

      He has been told to believe it therefore it is truth and is not delusional. You on the other hand are delusional for talking in historical facts. Historical facts only live in the past ansd this is now.
      Later on I will be in the lounge speaking on Dem speak as well and why rhetoric is only violent when you say it./sarc
