No not WW111 all China has to do is Blockade us sink 1 or 2 ships and thats the blockade complete we have 90 days of fuel and food left and military supplies. The Americans coming to our aid i think not it will be under the bus for Australia.All our Strategic Fuel foods spare parts and munitions are stored in the US so that will be interesting.Australia is already divided on paper and the Govt will happily give half of Australia away.For mine i just carn’t see what the Australian Politicians where thinking in the first place,fancy destroying your… Read more »

They are going to need to find WAY more “minorities” to fight that war for them because this white male is not only not fighting any kind of war with China for others, nor is anyone I can help and protect from dong so. On a side note, Australia is really mouthing off quite bigly, for being all out in the open middle of nowhere far away from the USA and Europe, a hop skip and a jump from China. Let’s also recall that Australia has a mere 25M people, surely many white males of which are also sick and… Read more »

Agree with your comment, someone. As a veteran who did, at one time believe our Government, during my service I discovered our Government and politicians LIE, on a major scale. I also discovered there are people within the military, who are more than happy to agree to anything the Government requests of them, to allow them to climb the ladder and increase their lucrative retirement conditions. As I’ve said in my earlier post, on a World scale of militaries, Australia is like a flea on an elephants back, tiny and of no consequence. It would appear there are people who… Read more »

The current China “problem” – much like most of US/western “problems” was created by the Western powers themselves, pushing their Neoliberal policies. These policies go back to the Reagan/Thatcher administrations, and were heavily pushed under the Clinton and Obama administrations, pushed by corporate greed. The result, the creation of a global superpower, has been foreseeable for many years. If China now appears to look like a threat, it is the consequence of US aggression against China, and not the other way around. I haven’t seen Chinese warships off the California coast, but the US navy routinely invades the waters off… Read more »

Which nations are the ones who continually build military bases surrounding nations that refuse to bend the knee to them, and insist on self government ??

The Chinese people deserve to live in freedom and peace. Under the CCP, they will continue to endure the most oppressive regime on the planet. Do you condone this? The CCP has demonstrated that they have little if any consideration for its neighbors and the broader world and therefore, has clearly shown that it is not a responsible global citizen. Containment is what is needed and with that containment must come the dismantling of the CCP and the return of China to a nation of people that have freedom of speech and liberty to live without fear of brutal recrimination.… Read more »

The Chinese people are in fact quite happy with the direction their country is headed and with their governments policies. The distrust of China apparently runs so deep that scores of countries have signed onto the BRI, seeing an important opportunity to advance and uplift their own populations. Your comment reels of CIA propaganda, based on a geopolitical model that must go.

It is not up to YOU, or anyone else to DICTATE to the Chinese people, the system of Government they want. That is entirely THEIR decision and choice. I can well imagine what YOU would do if another nation decided our system of Government was not to their liking, and decided to do something to change it.
Sounds a lot like your being hypocritical.

baker, stick to baking bread. You didn’t grasp a word a said. It started with Neoliberalism, but you probably have no clue what that is and what it did, to both the US and to China. Trump attempted to reverse the process, but too little, too late, and 4 years wasn’t enough. FYI, I voted for Trump, not the demented sniffer.

It’s next to impossible to get a balance accounting from The Duran on anything pertaining to China. Australia is an obedient lapdog to the US and that is who is behind all these current issues. What did Alexander think the Chinese government should have done when the Australian government started attacking them some months ago? Roll over and offer more trade concessions due to the belligerent behavior of Australia rather than doing what they did and reduce their imports of Australia good? The Australian & British military are a complete joke with their thinking and actions towards China & Russia.… Read more »

Quite so. Both China and Russia are merely reacting/responding to Western aggression and provocations. What does the West expect from them? To roll over and submit? Not only that, but to add insult to injury, the West then accuses them for having been the aggressor and provocateur.

What Australia needs badly is to get that turkey Morrison out of power. Even when he is gone the Australian government will still be a US tool, however hopefully another party may have the common sense to realise that China is it’s bread and butter and the fallout from this is affecting the economy and businesses of Australian companies. There’s no word go describe the stupidity of these actions. Australia is a sitting duck for the Chinese. The US of course, won’t be fighting on their own soil, and won’t blink an eye at sacrificing the lives of Australians. If… Read more »

It would appear, many Australians have very conveiniently forgotten the FACT, that it was Australia, who first stood up and made allegations without any substantiations regarding the 5 G network. Claiming it was spying on us, and not a shred of evidence ever surfaced to support such claims. Whereas we all KNOW who IS doing the spying on us, try Google, Facebook Twitter and all the rest of them, making no secret of their spying on us which is apparently O.K. with most Australians, as no one objects to these actions by American companies. Then of course came the Virus,… Read more »

A “divorce” between the U.S. and China is not the solution. The real issue is that governments like the U.S. sell their debt to financial markets and buy it back at compound interest. As Michael Hudson explains, the problem isn’t governments spending money into the real economy of production and services and then taxing back enough of the profits to gradually eliminate the debt (thus preventing asset inflation), but the inflation of asset prices in a rentier economy which is NOT based upon production and services, thus encouraging speculation. Whereas public ownership of banking and key sectors of the economy… Read more »

With a population of almost 1.5 billion people to fend for, the CCP espouses a system which keeps track of its citizens and allows them only slightly less freedom than western societies. CCP also realises that without a capitalist economy, it is not going to be able to feed and ensure the safety of every single person. People talk about human rights abuses in China, how many have actually seen this first hand? Does everyone believe everything that western media chooses to show its audience?

Yes the western powers have always enjoyed putting sanctions on countries without blowback. Well both Russia and China are retaliating with their own sanctions. The West just needs to suck it up and get used to it.
As for a war with China the West will also have to fight Russia, so it will never happen.

This is frankly infantile non-adult garbage – but it is dangerous garbage. The West needs to grow up fast or it will find on the losing end of a conflict which they are not equipped to deal with.

Too many accumulating scores to settle. If war’s started with China, Russia will take the opportunity to rid itself of its western annoyances and if war’s started with Russia, China will do the same.

So, NATO’s only solution, since diplomacy is anathema to it, is to start a two front war and die quickly, minimizing its pain.
