China Announces Unidirectional Neutrality Position Regarding Military Action With North Korea…

There is a considerable amount of debate surrounding how much pressure Chinese President Xi Jinping is receiving from the hard-line communist party apparatus.  Some believe Xi Jinping is actually in conflict with the party apparatus and most of the old guard of Hujintao.

There is a line of logic that states the current Chinese rhetoric is not Xi Jinping’s outlook, but rather the position of the communist party controlling the narrative and trying to reassert itself to cause diversion from the tenuous economic position of the Chinese economy.  Whichever perspective might be true, China just officially announced a position that is rather concerning.  According to the latest official communist party position:

♦If North Korea strikes first, China promises to remain neutral.
♦If The U.S. strikes first, China promises to fight on the side of the DPRK.

CHINA – […] Beijing is not able to persuade Washington or Pyongyang to back down at this time. It needs to make clear its stance to all sides and make them understand that when their actions jeopardize China’s interests, China will respond with a firm hand.

China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the US retaliates, China will stay neutral. If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.

China opposes both nuclear proliferation and war in the Korean Peninsula. It will not encourage any side to stir up military conflict, and will firmly resist any side which wants to change the status quo of the areas where China’s interests are concerned.

It is hoped that both Washington and Pyongyang can exercise restraint. The Korean Peninsula is where the strategic interests of all sides converge, and no side should try to be the absolute dominator of the region. (read more)

One thing is increasingly obvious. China has full control over North Korea and is using the DPRK as an offensive weapon to keep the United States and all Western powers from an influential economic footprint in the region.  It is time for Western media to drop the charade and admit China has full control over North Korea.

The DPRK is China’s most valuable trade/economic weapon.

This is why President Trump needs to economically confront China now; with severe and punishing trade and economic sanctions, urgently. It needs to happen sooner rather than later. The U.S. should move to cripple the red dragon before Xi Jinping is able to select the economic timeline and geography to drop the mask and instruct North Korea to pull the trigger of hostilities.

President Trump can force the panda mask to fall from the red dragon if he hits the Chinese economy quickly and substantially. If he doesn’t, the mask will eventually fall at a time chosen by the communist regime in Beijing.  The mask will fall because the Chinese economy is on a natural path to contraction.

If President Trump doesn’t trigger the Chinese economic contraction, it will contract naturally at a later date – and with that contraction the deployment of North Korea’s aggression will begin, bigly.

Remember in China the outlook is not Western.  They have an entirely divergent way of looking at conflict.  They accept no alternate position; you either think “their way” or your thinking is wrong.  You either acquiesce to “their terms” or there are no terms.  When dealing and negotiating with China everything is a zero-sum outlook.

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.

Delaying the economic conflict serves no value.  Take them head on and let’s go…

    Immediate and heavy economic sanctions on China. Don’t give them time to put a plan in place. Nuke ’em now w/hell and fury economic sanctions. The “war” will be over quickly once they realize they will be unable to sell their “made in china shit” anywhere else.

    That’s what my foreign friend said, when N. Korea starting acting up again under the Trump administration. He said it isn’t North Korea’s missile program, it is China’s program in North Kprea.

  5. If North Korea gets deliverable ICBM nukes, whether by covert help from the Chinese or their own internal development efforts, China would be able to overcome the MAD doctrine that kept the Soviets in check.

    Kim Jong Un rules over a starving Potemkin village of a country and obviously cares nothing about his own people. If he is controlled by the Chinese and gains a credible nuclear ballistic missile arsenal, he can launch first and get on a plane without a second thought. While his whole country would be turned to ash by the counter-strike, it would be a minor loss to the Chinese against the potential gain of wiping out, or gravely injuring its only major competitor (the USA).

    This is all about the MAD doctrine now. It needs to be made clear that the DPRK = China, and anything the DPRK does with any nukes is China policy. The MAD doctrine needs to be re-established.

  7. What is implicit in the following is important:

    ♦If North Korea strikes first, China promises to remain neutral.
    ♦If The U.S. strikes first, China promises to fight on the side of the DPRK.

    Implicitly this means let the status quo continue until Kim has his nukes.

    And so it is rather easy to deduce what the Chicoms really want, and why they keep that desire hidden. They will say what everybody wants to hear – denuclearize the Korean peninsula, mutual dialogue, etc. etc. and appear ambivalent toward NK. But they are really just trying to buy Kim time. Once Kim’s regime has a credible nuclear arsenal, the Chinese can threaten First Strike against the US through him (albeit with the usual theatrics and pretending not to really be in control) and actually be able to carry it out – the counter-strike would turn NK to glass but the loss of NK would be worth it to the Chicoms if a fatal blow is dealt to the US. In short, China is laying the groundwork to defeat the MAD doctrine so that they can dictate terms to the US when it comes to trade and regional influence.

    While we are at it, let’s call it what it is. The Chinese communist government is an illegitimate regime that came to power by force and stays in power by force, and their revolution is an abject failure. Raising a country’s overall standard of living by murdering one third of the population is nothing to boast about.

    Politicians the world over contort words to such a degree they no longer have meaning. There is nothing at all ‘neutral’ about saying you will stay on the sidelines if one side attacks, but come to their aide if they are attacked instead. That position is hostile to the United States and it’s allies, and puts the lie to any notion that China was seriously attempting to help end this conflict.

    I don’t know where the weak spots are, but I bet in the upcoming China election, China Central Committee members business interests would be a good place to put pressure on.

    I also bet putting pressure on European allies who have signed up for the A.I.I.B, China’s new and competing bank to our World Bank, would be a good target as well. Maybe calling out the OBOR strategy and the threat of collapsing value on the AIIB in a small trade war would send a message? I don’t know. It’s very complex.

    Having threatened Guam, we now have to assume that ANY missile launch from North Korea is a threat. No more test missiles. Who can take a chance? Any launch will logically be met with a devastating response. KJU just checkmated his own missile test program! The US needs to make this a clear policy.

    I think Trump believes NK needs to be dealt with, but I also think he needs an American populace supporting him in a trade war with China where Wal-Mart prices suddenly ratchet up as a result. I think NK gives him the leverage to do what he needs to do to bring manufacturing back home, and get congress moving on his tax agenda to encourage it. I bet he wants more deals like Foxcon. Pull back capabilities to make us less dependent. He is a guy who thinks in terms of infrastructure remember.

    The easiest way to neutralize China is:

    1. Go after their food source. A million+ Army has to be fed!

    2. China and their nationals already in the US, who own large swaths of real estate, own shares in several national companies, (see Hollywood) and banks. With one stoke of a pen China would stand to lose more at devastating levels never seen before in any time in it’s history which would be crippling to their economy. China depends on imports for a lot of their food staples, not to mention they are not stupid to risk such a catastrophe. Then again, humans are a pretty unpredictable so the saying goes, Prepare for the worst and hope for the best applies.

    Other factors to consider:

    Most of China’s military weapons is stolen US technology. Thank you Bill Clinton!
    Their Navy and their history as a country is no where near the history of the US, In fact the last time China engaged in a naval battle was against Japan where their entire navy was wiped out by a ferocious storm dating back to the Qing dynasty = Disadvantage China
    Their Airforce is also extremely inexperience in terms of war and would not fare well against a much more experienced Military such as the US.= Disadvantage China

    Their Army is surely by the numbers. Any ground invasion is a serious calculation, and would be suicide as only a herculean effort by a Multinational coalition force would make it possible of succeeding. = Advantage China

      You can’t target the food source because the people will be the main victims.
      Also, there won’t be a ground invasion and I doubt missiles will be used against NK.
      The USA doesn’t need to fire missiles to create fire. Remember the STUXNET attack?
      U.S. technology is so advanced that much damage can be generated from afar while evading suspicion and blaming NK incompetence.

      As to China, SUNDANCE is correct. Accelerate their economic demise; their people won’t be happy when they lose their jobs and I doubt Trump will be blamed since it is all their leaders’ doing.

    I call BS on this statement from China. A few things:

    First, China is trying to reinforce the charade that Nork and China are separate. “If we order Nork to nuke Guam (or if Kim does something stupid before we can stop him), and the US responds by turning North Korea into a readioactive desert, China will not respond.” That is what they are really saying.

    The reason they are saying this is that of course they won’t respond. China can’t hit us, and they are trying to hide that they can’t hit us behind a fake act of restraint.

    Furthermore, the statement announces that the communist Chinese regime are cowards. They stand Kim and the North Koreans up in front, and then announce beforehand that if Kim follows China’s orders and attacks the US, China will then disavow Nork and sacrifice them.

    The appropriate response from the US is to announce that we will hold China and the Chinese mainland fully responsible for all acts against the US and US territories by North Korea. Let them ruminate on that a while.

    Economic sanctions against China is a good strategy at this point since nothing else seems to work. We really have nothing to lose as we are trying to fight back against bullies who will never quit until they get a bloody nose. BTW, all these liberals, leftists, and globalists better shut up their yap right now and go back to the end of the bus. They are responsible for this escalation, so they should thank their lucky starts and enjoy their bus ride at the back and let the real responsible adults and leaders deal with the mess that they have created.

    Great piece; in essence, China and America are two superpowers who are opposed to each other like Yin and Yang. Right now, both countries need each other to survive, but there will likely come a time when one country’s power overwhelms the other. I enjoyed the way you made it clear that President Trump needs to do something sooner rather than later. It’s dangerous to assume that everything will work out for the U.S. in the end. That’s how great nations get into hot water when the citizens of that nation think they’re “above” the rest of the world. North Korea certainly is a potential stepping stone into a larger issue (war, famine, more political disputes, etc.). Keep up the good work informing people what’s happening in the world!
