Thought for the day

"The problem we face today is that the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living." -- George Bernard Shaw (1856- 1950)

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a new maritime doctrine that stamps a significant warning on the United States. This new legislation spells out the “dangers” of the US Navy and its “course to naval dominance.”

Putin signed the 55-page document before he gave his speech at the Russian Navy Day in St. Petersburg. The port city of Saint Petersburg, sitting right on the Baltic Sea, represents a Russian area that feels threatened by the USA and the NATO.

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has told the Wall Street Journal that Washington has rejected traditional diplomacy, and in the absence of a great leader, has driven the world to the precipice of war over Ukraine and Taiwan.

Kissinger previously courted controversy for suggesting that Kiev abandon some of its territorial claims to end the conflict with Russia.

 Beijing cannot ignore the deployment of US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) systems in South Korea as it undermines China’s strategic security, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Friday.

“China has always respected South Korea’s sovereignty and understood its security concerns, but the US deployment of THAAD missile systems in South Korea undermines China’s strategic security, and Beijing cannot ignore this,” Wang told a briefing.

It can certainly be said that the risk for nuclear war is far greater today than it was less a year ago. Ever since the conflict in Ukraine began, the collective West and its vassals, also known as the “international community” have been engaged in a hybrid war against Russia, stopping just short of direct confrontation.

Is the military industrial complex insane enough to incinerate Earth's last remaining forests in order to achieve the objectives of the global controllers? The short answer is yes. A formerly classified US military document titled "Forest Fire As A Military Weapon" is a truly shocking exposé of planned scorched Earth destruction. The US Forest Service actually participated in the research and planning that went into this military instruction manual for carrying out orchestrated forest fire catastrophes.

Scientists in China have reportedly developed a submarine drone that can also fly at high speeds. The drone has both civilian and military applications, including inspecting underwater mines and weakening enemy warship defense systems.

The South China Morning Post reported Monday that China’s latest drone has four propellers, including two that can tilt. It can slowly approach underwater targets and idle in one area for an extended period, researchers said. 

Tensions have been steadily ramping up between the United States and China for quite some time now. However, the recent trip by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, despite firm warnings from China and reservations from the Pentagon, has kicked off the most aggressive Chinese military exercises in the Taiwan Strait region.
