China’s choke-chain on America
With the continued, panicked injection of massive government intervention into financial markets, it is clear that one of our biggest debt holders, China exerts massive influence over us. Part of all the rush to push through the massive bailout was due to in part because our international debt holders, in particular China, would cease lending us money until we made good with American taxpayer money on the hole created by loan defaults on a stellar scale.
Make no mistake, while you may not see Chinese troops on the street corners, or see their aircraft surveilling our citizens, our national sovereignty has been compromised. We can only blame ourselves as a nation. The bureaucrats who bought votes using the subprime rape of the American coffers via the handout institutions called Fannie May and Freddie Mac, are surely but one major factor.
For those of you who question this assertion, saying that surely China would never follow through on economic threats that would jeopardize its own prosperity, realize that we are not talking about a Democratic slave master here. To further its own ends, the ruling elite of Communist China would most certainly sacrifice the prosperity of its brave citizenry in order to achieve its strategic art-of-war ends. However, China knows that we will baulk at this game of chicken.
The change in foreign policy will be subtle at first, but this new America-on-the-chain of China will slowly placate to its eastern masters. Watch for a more compromising Taiwan, as the Red Pax China spreads its way across the Pacific as surely as Imperial Japan’s vision of the “East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere” of the 1930s. The difference of course, is China never had to fire a shot. They needed no military Pearl Harbor, but settled for our own economic erosion via the never ending spend free welfare brought on by Lyndon B Johnson’s Great Society. On the very week of one of the most dramatic stock market crashes in American history, they launched a much heralded historic space-walk mission. The symbolism was hard to ignore.
The only path out of this would be a massive change in American society towards personal responsibility, traditional American values based on God, and the technological ingenuity that very much still exists in concentrated pockets in America. It is very possible America could spin on its heels and march to the tool shed of its traditional values. Prayer and time will tell this story.
The fact remains a great Asian empire is predicted to appear on the world stage:
And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. Rev 16:12 ( Emphasis mine )
