Victory is Always the Goal of War

Russian and Chinese military doctrines rely on willingness to sacrifice millions of their own citizens, for the sake of victory. Their generals obviously have to consider the possibility of war with the Western nations. Russia and China have to work with the understanding of their specific conditions, and their conditions dictate that a victory means using nuclear weapons, since using only conventional weapons is unlikely to result in a quick and decisive victory. The overall propensity of Eastern weapons' systems to use fewer electronics; the high probability of using nuclear weapons on the tactical level; and the fielding of direct-energy weapons; give Eastern militaries an advantage over the Western nations. Russian military doctrine is very explicit about using nuclear weapons. Russian weapons' systems (which are typically copied by China) are designed for nuclear war, which means relying as little as possible on electronics, because of the EMP-effect of nuclear weapons. Western weapons' and logistics' systems have become increasingly dependent on electronics, since the end of the Cold War, making them more vulnerable to nuclear and direct-energy weapons. Russia is also actively fielding weapons designed to specifically target electronics, like those used to disable the USS Donald Cook. The military advantage afforded to Russia and China by using nuclear weapons; combined with the fact that these nations have already decided the human costs of such a war to be acceptable; mean that the risk of nuclear confrontation, in response to Western aggression, is increasing.

Massive Chinese computer espionage network uncovered

A mystery electronic spy network apparently based in China has infiltrated hundreds of computers around the world and stolen files and documents, Canadian researchers have revealed.

The network, dubbed GhostNet, appears to target embassies, media groups, NGOs, international organisations, government foreign ministries and the offices of the Dalai Lama, leader of the Tibetan exile movement. The researchers, based at Toronto University's Munk Centre for International Studies, said their discovery had profound implications.

"This report serves as a wake-up call... these are major disruptive capabilities that the professional information security community, as well as policymakers, need to come to terms with rapidly," said researchers Ron Deibert and Rafal Rohozinski.


Here is the researchers' summary; a full report, 'Tracking "GhostNet": Investigating a Cyber Espionage Network' will be issued this weekend."

China: `We feel like we are serving prison sentences', say factory workers for Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Lenovo, Microsoft and IBM

“I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tools we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user...The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.” -- Bill Gates

You are being lied to about pirates

Who imagined that in 2009, the world's governments would be declaring a new War on Pirates? As you read this, the British Royal Navy – backed by the ships of more than two dozen nations, from the US to China – is sailing into Somalian waters to take on men we still picture as parrot-on-the-shoulder pantomime villains. They will soon be fighting Somalian ships and even chasing the pirates onto land, into one of the most broken countries on earth. But behind the arrr-me-hearties oddness of this tale, there is an untold scandal. The people our governments are labelling as "one of the great menaces of our times" have an extraordinary story to tell – and some justice on their side.

Espionage Against Pro-Tibet Groups, Others, Spurred Microsoft Patches

Computer intruders targeting pro-Tibetan groups, U.S. defense contractors and government agencies slipped in through previously unknown security holes in Microsoft Office, prompting Microsoft to issue a flurry of patches to the popular software suite in 2006 and 2007, according to computer security experts.

These attacks, which appeared to have originated in China, began in early 2006 when the attackers started sending e-mails to victims with booby-trapped Word documents and Excel spreadsheets attached.

"We are seeing more and more spying done with Trojans, a shift that has happened in the last two years," Mikko Hyppönen, the chief research officer for software security vendor F-Secure, told RSA conference attendees Thursday morning.

The Pentagon and pro-Tibet groups have previously acknowledged the intrusions, but Hyppönen is the first to link the cyber espionage to a series of patches that Microsoft pushed out without explanation. Microsoft did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Hyppönen's colleague Patrik Runald notes that from 2005 through early 2006, Microsoft issued few patches for its Office suite. But soon after there was an explosion of patches for critical bugs that could be used to infect a computer, including a record 26 patches in October, 2006, that fixed four critical bugs in Microsoft Office applications....

In 1999, Colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), published an obscure volume detailing the many methods China and other countries hostile to the US may use in combination or independently to wage total war against the US or the North American continent entirely, many which involve non military methods.

"Unrestricted Warfare," initially received little attention by western nations despite author Qiao Liang’s premise that, "the first rule of unrestricted warfare is that there are no rules, [with] nothing [is] forbidden."

The Next Phase of the Middle East War

Israel's war on Lebanon is an integral part of a US sponsored "military roadmap". 

The war on Lebanon, which has resulted in countless atrocities including the destruction of the nation's economy and civilian infrastructure, is "a stage" in a sequence of carefully planned military operations. 

Lebanon constitutes a strategic corridor between Israel and North-western Syria. The underlying objective of this war was the militarization of Lebanon, including the stationing of foreign troops, as a precondition for carrying out the next phase of a broader military agenda. 

Formally under a UN mandate, the foreign troops to be stationed on Lebanese soil on the immediate border with Syria, will be largely although not exclusively from NATO countries. This military force mandated by the UN Security Council is by no means neutral. It responds directly to US and Israeli interests. 

Moreover, the timely withdrawal of Syrian troops, following the February 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri has contributed to opening up a "new space". The withdrawal of Syrian troops served Israeli interests. The timely pullout was of strategic significance: it was a major factor in the timing and planning of the July 2006 IDF attacks on Lebanon. 

In the aftermath of the Israeli bombings and the "ceasefire", UN Security Council Resolution 1701, drafted by France and the US in close consultation with the Israeli government, has paved the way for the militarization of Lebanon, under a bogus UN mandate. 

The Next Phase of the Middle East War

Confirmed by official statements and military documents, the US in close coordination with Britain (and in consultation with its NATO partners), is planning to launch a war directed against Iran and Syria. US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton has already initiated the draft of a UN Security Council resolution with a view to imposing sanctions on Tehran for its alleged (nonexistent) nuclear weapons program. Whether this resolution is adopted is not the main issue. The US may decide to proceed in defiance of the Security Council, following a veto by Russia and/or China. The vote of France and Britain, among the permanent members has already been secured.

Mandarin being taught in public schools

To Whom it may concern,

I hope this finds you all well and in good spirit.

Last night I tuned in the nightly national news on ABC. I rarely do this but, with things developing as quickly as they are, I am starting to consider monitoring the mainstream news more closely. We are being "noticed"/warned.

For months I had been hearing/reading about the trouble in which General Motors finds itself. Last night, ABC reported GM will be closing 9 plants which will effectively evaporate 30,000 jobs. Workers at the OKC facility were in shock as was Oklahoma's governor. Three more plants are to be closed in Canada. Reportedly GM has lost billions this past year and their credit is now "junk".

The report continued saying, Ford will be making similar announcements, soon, also. How far behind will be Chrysler announcements?

This, of course, was/is disturbing news as it was once said, "As General Motors goes.., so goes the country." Lee Iacocca [former president of Ford Motor Co. and former CEO of Chrysler] said of GM.., "it is so large, it is a country unto itself." [Iacocca has recently come out of retirement and has been seen doing national TV commercials for Chrysler/Daimler.]

Like a footnote.., it was added; old, established companies [paying high wages to long-term employees and massive retirement/pension plans {including medical}] CANNOT compete with the new companies [that do not have these debt/burdens -{ never mind foreign economies}].

But more disturbing to me was ABC's report at the end of the broadcast regarding China.., specifically what is being taught in public schools.

China Preparing For War And Few Notice


By Chuck Baldwin
9-22-5

Ever since President Richard Nixon entered into détente with the communist regime in China, America has doggedly assisted in the commercial and military buildup of the Marxist nation. Both Republican and Democratic administrations have mollycoddled the Red Chinese to the point that now they have grown big enough to cause serious concern.

We Are Surrounded

By Craig Roberts

Or How Well Do You Speak Chinese?



Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese military philosopher who is oft quoted in our military institutions, wrote "One who is not acquainted with the designs of his neighbors should not enter into alliances with them."

This quote surfaced in my consciousness as I walked the aisles of a new Dollar-type store yesterday, picking up items and turning them over to see where they were made. I counted 20 items, of which 19 were made in "China," and one in Pakistan. As a WWII baby boomer who grew up during the 50s and 60s, I could not help but shudder in the fact that I was holding items that were made by an avowed enemy, one that along with the former Soviet Union, forced me and my classmates in elementary school and junior high school to practice "Duck and Cover" and quick response to air raid sirens. In those post-war days we had a Civil Defense organization, were encouraged to prepare for a nuclear strike, build fallout shelters, and be ready in case Russia, China, or even Castro came over the horizon. Those days have faded away, but living through the Cold War and the ever-present threat of "the bomb" will remain with us forever.

Now there is no Civil Defense Corps, the fallout shelters are empty or used for storage, and we are told that the Soviet Union has collapsed, and the Red China is now our trading partner (and Taiwan never mentioned), and the only Barbarians at the Gate are North Korea and certain countries in the Middle East that support terrorist organizations.

However, as a student of history, and a former intelligence analyst, I see another world growing up around us. One the media ignores, the politicians refuse to recognize, and one of which the American people remain ignorant. It is a world in which we are surrounded, being infiltrated, and readied for invasion.
