Europe Prepares for War with China

The scriptures tell us that a New Europe of ten nations will arise organized as a modern Holy Roman Empire system and will dominate the western world after the collapse of the Judeo, Anglo American dominating system.

And after two years, during the third year the new Europe will turn against and attack the Asian nations.  The main nations of Asia are now coming together in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

The struggle over Syria and Iran is only a part of this larger geopolitical struggle between East and West and the Anglo Judeo American establishment has been working since they enticed Iraq to try and re-assimilate the breakaway province of Kuwait.

This whole series of Middle East wars is designed to take as much energy producing areas and pipeline routes as possible by the West; to place them in the best possible position for a fight with Asia.

Very soon now the West will succeed in overthrowing the Assad government in Syria and effecting regime change in Iran.  A regional peace deal will be agreed with Israel and other nations, as the New Europe rises; a peace deal that will be sabotaged by the Extreme Settler Movement on Israel resulting in the occupation of Israel and the collapse of the United States and Britain.

the new Europe will then take over the assets and the push to war with Asia.

The seeds of this post America war are already sown and both Asia and nations soon to come together in Europe are on a collision course.

Dan 11:40   And at the time of the end shall the king of the south [Israel and Egypt] push at him: and the king of the north [Europe, scripturally Babylon] shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.41 He shall enter also into the glorious land [modern Israel] , and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north [Asia] shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

The Asian nations shall absorb the blow and strike Europe with destruction; the leaders of Europe will escape to Jerusalem where they shall marshal their remaining armies; only to have both the European and Asian armies destroyed by the coming of Messiah to save humanity.


A Ring of Fire Around China (II)

(Own report) – Berlin’s main think tank for military policy has announced “war game exercises” for military confrontations with China. This year’s “Trier China-Dialogue,” to be convened in Berlin at the beginning of June by the Federal College for Security Studies, will focus on analyzing the “combat capabilities” of the Chinese armed forces. The forum will be concluded with two “hypothetical practical tests,” to learn whether the Peoples Republic of China’s military can “take over” and “hold onto” Taiwan or islands in the South China Sea. The conflict with Taiwan, as well as that over various islands in the South China Sea, impinges upon China’s vital interests. In both cases, the USA has adopted the position of China’s adversary as its own, therefore, in the case of armed conflict, NATO – and therefore, the rest of the West – could become directly involved. A supplementary objective for the “war game exercises” is the West’s rapidly expanding military presence in east and Southeast Asia. In the wake of the stationing of US troops, Germany is also strengthening its military cooperation with China’s potential adversaries in Southeast Asia and intensifying arms exports into the region.
China’s Fighting Power
The Federal College for Security Studies (BAKS) has announced its next “Trier China-Dialogue” to be held June 6. This will be the third time – following 2009 and 2011. The name is derived from cooperation between BAKS and the former junior political science professor at the University of Trier, Martin Wagener, who, last October, has transferred to the Federal University of Applied Administrative Sciences in Munich. Wagener is considered an East Asia specialist and will participate also this year in the symposium, which is co-parented by the CDU-affiliated Konrad Adenauer Foundation and Trier University’s Political Science Alumni Association. The theme of the symposium is: “Fighting Power: How Capable is China’s Armed Forces?”
Arming Its Rivals
According to BAKS, the constant growth of the Chinese defense budget is the reason for selecting this theme. As a matter of fact, for years, the People’s Republic of China has been increasing the rate of military expenditures, corresponding approximately to the country’s economic growth. BAKS writes that China plans a further increase of its 2013 defense budget to US $114.3 billion. However, for the foreseeable future, the country will not keep pace with western expenditures. NATO countries spend just under US $1 trillion per year – not counting NATO’s allies, including those in eastern Asia and the Pacific realm. Yet, according to BAKS, it can be seen that, over the past few years, the Chinese armed forces have accomplished a remarkable modernization. In January 2007, for example, they shot down their own weather satellite. This means, according to BAKS, that “in the event of war” China is the only country, other than the USA and Russia, that can “neutralize the adversary’s satellite supported intelligence and navigation systems.”[1] In addition, Beijing has “radically modernized” its naval forces and now even has an aircraft carrier. Since some time, China’s naval units have been participating “in anti-piracy missions at the Horn of Africa.” This provides the military leadership with important experience in covering great distances, allowing an optimization of perseverance.”
China’s Objectives
Back in 2010, the East Asia specialist Martin Wagener described the main features of the Chinese military strategy, wherein the function of the Chinese armed forces is to protect the “vital interests” of the People’s Republic – above all, its territorial integrity. This concerns particularly its regions, such as Tibet or the West Chinese Xinjiang province. The military must also be able to ward off eventual aggression against them, as against the former European colonies of Hong Kong and Macao. For Beijing, the question of territorial defense is at issue in the Taiwan question, as well as in disputes over islands in the South and East China Seas, being claimed by various other countries. In 2010, Wagener also explained that Beijing places emphasis on being able to “protect and maintain the autonomy of China’s maritime routes,” including passage via the Straits of Malacca, through which a large portion of its trade with Europe, the Middle East and Africa transits.[2] For years, observers have pointed out that the People’s Republic of China has been promoting the construction of ports along the Indian Ocean coastline (the “String of Pearls Strategy” [3]) to protect its maritime routes. According to Wagener, this strategy also has the objective of “militarily deterring the USA.”[4] A while back, Washington proclaimed its “Pacific Century,” and within its framework, began increasingly orienting its military engagement toward East Asia – from China’s perspective, clearly a threat. This is understandable also in light of repeated discussions in the establishment in Washington of the possibility of going to war with the People’s Republic of China.[5]
The Fulda Gap of the 21st Century
During the course of the preceding “Trier China-Dialogue,” Martin Wagener emphasized the extent of – anti-China – expansion of western military presence into eastern Asia. In the summer of 2011, he was quoted saying that US military presence has come to resemble “a preventive ‘ring of fire’ around China, which Washington is ready to activate in a conflict situation.”[6] The Straits of Malacca example demonstrates that this is not merely an abstract but a concrete threat to China’s interests. German specialists recently drew the conclusion that, as “the most important transit route” between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the straits is not only economically, but even of such military strategic “importance, that it can justifiably be called the ‘Fulda Gap of the 21st Century’.” Already today, “a permanent US presence in Singapore,” – directly at the Straits of Malacca – must be taken into account. The US proximity makes “the presence of the Chinese in the Indian Ocean” and ultimately, therefore, its supply of raw materials, as well as China’s exports to Europe and Africa “dependent upon whether the USA (…) tolerates Chinese transit.”[7] However, the specialists avoid mentioning Germany’s role. Berlin is systematically expanding its cooperation in military policy with Southeast Asian countries, particularly those along the Straits of Malacca and is increasingly supplying various kinds of armaments – from warships to battle tanks.

Hypothetical Practical Tests
Western military presence in China’s direct vicinity is one of the reasons for this year’s “Trier China-Dialogue’s” preoccupation with China’s military forces. Presentations and discussions will elaborate on the military policy of the new Chinese leadership and the capabilities of the most advanced Chinese weapons systems – from its aircraft carriers to its J-20 stealth fighter jets. The symposium concludes with two “war games,” which BAKS calls “hypothetical practical tests.” BAKS formulates the problems: “Is China capable of taking over Taiwan or of occupying individual islands in the South China Sea and (!) holding onto them?”[9] Washington has assured China’s adversaries of its support in a conflict, reinforcing this with joint maneuvers, as well as supplies of combat equipment – and Germany is participating, to a growing degree, in the latter. If a conflict erupts, the West will be directly involved. With BAKS’ “war games” Berlin is preparing for this eventuality.
