THOUGHTS ON “THE (UN)INEVITABILITY OF WAR BETWEEN CHINA AND AMERICA”
ravikal294 APRIL 13, 2015 AT 11:15 PM Hello JC, Been reading your articles for a while now. In this particular analysis above, I wonder why you think (or dont) that the US will not attempt to do another ‘fukushima’ style with NK, which will – a. help prove its point that NK was going to build the nuke bomb, and b. destabilise the region and show them “who’s the boss”!!
This, of course, is assuming that US(CIA) did the fukushima ‘thingy’ in the first place…
Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

speedspirit APRIL 14, 2015 AT 12:01 PM Very nice geopolitical analysis. Nice to have a break from the SDR stuff. Appreciate your continued work for everyone’s benefit.
Tao Dao Man APRIL 14, 2015 AT 12:44 PM Excellent piece. I spend 6 months of the year in S/K, am going back next week. When I tell people there will be normal relations between the two in 5 years.
They look at me like I am crazy. Kim Jung Un was educated in Switzerland, he is most likely diabetic and has gout among other things at a very young age. But he and the Generals are not suicidal.
Another possibility is that there will be an inner coup from his “mentors” Generals. China is looking to restart the 6 way talks. Putin has said he wants to play a major role. Talk is still there about a rail line going through N/K to S/K. S/K, Russia and China will have to take the lead.
Many still believe that the US is in S/K to contain China and Russia. And also to protect Japan not ROK. N/K needs everything from toilet paper to turbines.
And the capitalist countries are more than happy to oblige. In exchange for new open markets, cheap labor, and natural resources (minerals). China is the clue to peace on the peninsula, not the US.
Cedarforest APRIL 14, 2015 AT 7:59 PM JC, I’m a new reader of your blog, and I have many “newbie” questions. With regards to the post above,
1. What is your reason for considering the NK point of conflict only leaving out others, such as Taiwan, South China Seas conflicting territorial claims, Chinese naval expansion, friction and economic war between China and Japan, etc?
2. “The realignment of global governance structures is taking place as powerful international players grind and push against one another like tectonic plates.” Question: On several occasions, the risk of nuclear conflict has been high (Cuban Missile Crisis, etc.), and the potential for such remains high (possible nuclear arms race in the Middle East, possible conflict between India and Pakistan, etc.).
Are TPTB Russian Roulette players, as they direct the changes you discuss here, taking such risks, or is “the hidden hand” always maneuvering to keep things sane? Thanks, -CF

“In an article headlined “The five key questions facing the AIIB”, the state-run Outlook magazine said yesterday that the biggest unanswered question about the bank was what currency – or currencies – would be used for settlement. The article said there were three options: the yuan, the US dollar or an AIIB currency basket.” An AIIB basket? What could be in that, I wonder?

Tao Dao Man APRIL 14, 2015 AT 10:36 PM It is absurd to think or even mention that the US$ would be involved. Some of the transactions might be done in trade, as in goods for services.
The AIIB and other countries currency swaps and trade deals are running away not toward the ever printing US $. O’s Asian pivot is becoming his divot.. Unless Tpp is fast tracked it will sink in the Pacific.
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 15, 2015 AT 3:41 PM TPP will be fast tracked.. I am convinced of that. The election of the president of the US coming up will have that as a factor. Trust me no one will win the election that isn’t for TPP and the NAU.
Tao Dao Man APRIL 15, 2015 AT 4:37 PM Don’t bet on it. Even if it gets through the dysfunctional paid off congress. Not one foreign country is fully on board, not even Japan.
Asian countries are making their own free trade deals which will weaken if not make the TPP meaningless even if it comes about.
By NAU, do you mean the North American Union? If so, this is passe. A changing world and China have seen to that. Asia and Eurasia are the growth, energy, and labor engines. Not Detroit. Big money left here long ago, never ever to return.
Wait till you see the flood gates open to new membership in the SCO Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
Western global hegemony is being challenged at every chokepoint. It is only a matter of time. TICK TOCK!
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 15, 2015 AT 7:19 PM Actually I am glad that the US..the country I live in and love is going this way. Maybe we can get back to building our nation again. I read a lot about China and their problems as well and they are not devoid of trials that is for sure. So it isn’t all roses there either.
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 15, 2015 AT 4:35 PM I am wondering what this is all about.Perhaps some of you or JC would know. http://gata.org/node/15259
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 15, 2015 AT 7:06 PM I believe it is all in the plan.. The regional trading blocs are all lining up. Eurasia, Asean, the African Union.. and others and then comes the North American Union. I have listened to the audio tapes from the Council on Foreign Relations..the NAU is a done deal. It is just going to be hard to get the Canadians and the Americans to accept it as a concept, but it is done..trust me.
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 15, 2015 AT 7:09 PM I agree the US hegemony is a done deal. Yes, power has shifted it always does just as JC has said. So.. at what time will all this explode in your face. Man is corrupt and it will be only a matter of time.
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 15, 2015 AT 7:28 PM This is one of my favorites by JC Tao Dao..
daneackerman APRIL 15, 2015 AT 4:40 PM Hello JC, what do you make of the Weald Basin under London’s Gatwick Airport? Initial claims say the oil is worth £300 billion but when questioned UKOG stated proper tests have not taken place to confirm the claims yet.
Mark Schoenfelt APRIL 15, 2015 AT 5:28 PM Looking forward to hearing your input on investment options in the next few weeks as stated in your previous blog. Hoping it comes out soon since China is in “the home stretch” according to recent articles!

IMF and Islamic Finance
This will sure put a new outlook on life as a Wall Street and London Banker. The Islamic state is sitting on tons of liquidity that the world needs to get thru this mess, does it not? What do you think SDR 2.0?
irrelevant111 APRIL 16, 2015 AT 1:27 AM Excellent article. So much to absorb n keep track throughout the world is difficult. One thing is certain, profound change is taking place and at this time, the Bear n Dragon is much more adept in dealing with the West.
So called ISIS is a manufactured entity from covert opps funded by, hmmm… All about creating turmoil n war as the inevitable occurs. The Western Hegemony is dying on the vine. Time will tell…
P.S. Who is playing the better chess game and still avert physical war. Food for thought.
Cramley APRIL 16, 2015 AT 1:52 AM
Don’t be surprised if the the SDR rejiggerring is delayed into 2016 or even later. Forget about the whole 5 year cycle. The Central Bankers are playing a dangerous game here.
All the E-trade babies and financial professionals are going to front run them. Brings to mind the first planet visited by the Endurance in Interstellar, the one with the apparently shallow ocean.
Well central bank policy is a lot like the black hole Gargantua, engendering huge tidal waves of one-sided trades. Everybody gets complacent then uh-oh.
irrelevant111 APRIL 16, 2015 AT 3:58 AM Dottie, Corruption abounds…
I admire the magic wand you possess to interpret. Your comment re: Jim Willie exhibits a bit of naïveté, astounds me. His track record is one to be admired.
No one has a crystal ball, but he does appear to be close to truth in some respect. I encourage you to research further as we seek the Holy Grail of Truth.
Why is the EU migrating to the AIIB n many other nations? Research beyond main stream.
To understand man is to know the past.
Once again, try Charlotte Iserbyte, John Perkins, Fed Reserve history, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Iraq, 911 fiasco, today’s central banks, then you may understand the dynamic of Ukraine, Crimea, Nicaragua canal, Yemen, Congo, S. America, BRICS, Turkey, Iran n all the contracts dealing outside the U.S influence.
Why is the U.S. spending time n resources in Iran n Cuba?
Possibly the Russo n China deals recently acquired.
The pipelines skirting the Ukraine to EU, the pipelines moving through Turkey n much more.
No one knows all, but some still see the writing on the wall… Best always,
Dripfood APRIL 16, 2015 AT 7:49 AM Isn’t it kind of sad that the cultivation of the next genereation of debt slaves is sold to us as ‘declining income inequality’? Or would this next round of wealth distribution be an oportunity to create some positive wealth?
“Over the next two decades the structure of world population and income will undergo profound changes. Global income inequality is projected to decline further in 2035, largely owing to rapid economic growth in the emerging-market economies.
The potential pool of consumers worldwide will expand significantly, with the largest net gains in the developing and emerging-market economies.
The number of people earning between US$1,144 and US$3,252 per year in 2013 prices in purchasing power parity terms will increase by around 500 million, with the largest gains in Sub-Saharan Africa and India; those earning between US$3,252 and US$8,874 per year in 2013 prices will increase by almost 1 billion, with the largest gains in India and Sub-Saharan Africa; and those earning more than US$8,874 per year will increase by 1.2 billion, with the largest gains in China and the advanced economies.”

Dripfood APRIL 16, 2015 AT 11:06 AM Interesting statement by Mr. Blancard of the IMF at the very end of the WEO press conference:
“The second point is that, looking at the rest of the Eurozone, the rest of the Eurozone is in a better position to deal with the Greek exit. Some of the firewalls which were not there earlier are there.
Still, it will not be smooth sailing, but it could probably be done. The third is that if that were to happen, I think the way to reassure markets and make progress is actually go further, use the opportunity to make progress in terms of the fiscal union and the political union. This would be clearly the right moment to do it.”
Dottie Derewicz APRIL 16, 2015 AT 12:08 PM I will wait to hear JC’s outlook on what you are saying Cramley. I am sorry but I haven’t found much that you have said to be true..no disrespect intended.
