Ta Dien: Mr. Kissinger’s exhausting warning and mythical petition

Mr. Henry Kissinger – Former US Secretary of State, “old friend” of the Communist Party of China, warned that the two countries of America – China need to reach an agreement of mutual understanding, otherwise our world will faced to “As dangerous as before World War I”. Perhaps it should be said that this was a very heartfelt warning, full of unremitting concern for the CCP and a warning of Henry Kissinger’s devotion. However, the solution that he proposed and proposed to the US Government was very mythical and very dangerous.

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, 97 years old, said last month that the US and its Western allies need “Gaining sympathy“On the new global order with China, otherwise will face “Dangerous situation like before World War I”. Reuters reported that this was Kissinger’s statement during a video meeting with the think tank Chatham House in London, UK.

Chatham House, or “Royal Institute of International Affairs”, is an independent policy research body in London. The aim is to provide prestigious commentary on international issues and global challenges. Chatham House is known by everyone also because they founded the so-called “Chatham House Rules”(Chatham House Rule). When participating in conferences conducted pursuant to this rule, anyone can freely quote and promote the news obtained from the discussion conference, and at the same time freely speak; but no one is allowed to disclose information of the spokesperson himself, the status and affiliated agencies of any individual participating in the conference. This is “Chatham House Rules ”, its purpose is to encourage open-model discussion.

Mr. Henry Kissinger emphasized that the present is much more dangerous than the past, the weapons of science and technology of the two sides will lead to “Intense shock”. “The two sides have conflicts in a row, although many conflicts can be resolved, there will always be a moment where the conflict is out of control.” Mr. Henry Kissinger also said, “China is transforming more and more strongly, under national control, in fact its organizational capacity to carry out technical progress makes people commendable.” He also said: “But this does not necessarily mean that China in this century will lead in all aspects of technology.”

Kissinger reminded: “If the US negotiates with competitors like China like this, it will be very difficult, another problem is, will China accept the new order.” Mr. Kissinger also emphasized that the West needs to believe in itself. Kissinger’s successor after half a century, Biden’s Secretary of State Tony Blinken said, “Many aspects of the US-China relationship are turning into increasingly rivalries, even though there is still a space for cooperation between the two countries.”

On a profound note is, why did Kissinger mention World War I, not World War II, which everyone is more familiar with?

World War I broke out from 7/1914 to 11/1918, lasting for more than 4 years. Wars from Europe, Africa, the Middle East hit the Pacific Islands, Shandong China, to the South and North America coasts. The result of World War I was the victory of the Allied powers, and the German Empire, the Russian Empire, the Ottoman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire disintegrated.

World War I mainly happened in Europe, but the smoke of war finally spread globally, the vast majority of countries were swept away. The victorious Allies included France, Great Britain, Russia, Kingdom of Serbia, Kingdom of Montenegro, Belgium, Empire of Japan, Italy, Portugal, Romania, USA, Greece, Republic of China, and Thailand. The defeated Allies included the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and Bulgaria. 65 million people took part in the war, in the end the war ended with about 20 million wounded and over 16 million dead.

Although the trigger of World War I was the assassination of the Crown Prince of Austria – Hung Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sofia in Serbia, historians believe that the real cause of the war was extremism and mastermind. France’s revenge (Revanchisme) after the Franco-Prussian War, the tense situation in the Balkans, the colony struggle, and the arms race between nations.

Before World War I, there were two crises of Morocco and the Bosnian crisis, two wars in the Balkans, and the assassination of Sarajevo, which ultimately led to the outbreak of war. On the western front line, the Germans attacked and the Americans entered the war; on the Eastern front lines, there were German-Russian battles, and Russian counterattacks; The southern front line was the Balkan battlefield, the Ottoman Turkish battlefield, Italy moved the Allies into the war with Romania. After turning into world war, Japan went to war, Latin American countries joined the war, and the Republic of China also joined the war. In addition to war between continents, there is also war at sea.

American involvement in the war began when German submarines attacked British passenger ships, and most of the passengers on board were Americans. Due to the constant and unrestricted German submarine attacks, many American ships were sunk, and the US subsequently severed diplomatic relations with Germany. The Germans hoped that the American backyard would catch fire, and told Mexico that if Mexico declared war on the US, Germany would assist Mexico in regaining the part it ceded to America after the US-Mexico war! This provided the basis for the US to enter war and then declare war on Germany.

After the Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War, Japan defeated the Qing Empire and the Russian Empire; due to the alliance between Britain and Japan, it joined the Allied powers and declared war on allied powers. After Japan entered the war, it launched the Qingdao campaign, attacked and occupied Germany’s largest military port in Asia – China’s Qingdao.

The ROC government of Tonkin Doan Ky Thuy, for his sake, joined the Dong Dinh Faction, severed diplomatic relations with Germany, declared war on Germany and Austria, at the same time regained the German Concessions and Austrian Concession in Tianjin, and German Concession in Hankou. The ROC does not send troops to the war but organizes hundreds of thousands of Chinese workers to Europe through official and unofficial channels to form a regular Chinese labor brigade, the purpose of which is to provide logistics for the Allies. It is worth mentioning that the Northern Ocean government took the opportunity to occupy Outer Mongolia in World War I!

After the war, the Paris Peace Conference signed a peace treaty. But since then, the world has really changed. British pound hegemony was weakened by the US dollar, Europe fell, America and Japan risen, communism also took the opportunity to cause chaos. In China, the evil ideological movement of communism entered China through the “Quartet Movement”.

In the past, Europe had strong extremism; The UK holds a monopoly on the raw material market; The British Empire’s colonial trading system included a quarter of the world’s population such as India and Australia; The US has a very large domestic demand market, but enforces trade protectionism; the German and Japanese markets were small and limited developed markets, and eventually chose to expand. Free trade theorists argue that if markets were open, free trade was implemented and tariffs were abolished before World War I, then there would have been no World War I. . Financial researchers have noticed how the classical gold standard ended before World War I: Britain, due to its huge war spending and the gold outflowing, the pound was dented. pressed, and eventually watched the US dollar replace it and become the new hegemon.

Obviously, although the cycles of history are similar, they will not be quite similar. But look at the history of World War I, discover the roots behind it, consider the radical nationalism of the Balkans, the French vengeance after the Franco-Prussian War, the competition for the national market. The practice and arms race of different countries, looking back on the present world, are literally a shadow of 100 years ago. Economists and historians have argued that if there was an open market, free trade and tariff exemptions, World War I could be avoided. How similar are extreme nationalism, Western vengeance, international market looting, and the brutal arms race provoked by the CCP as compared to before? The CCP is also planting the seeds of a large-scale war. Kissinger’s selection of World War I as a reference indeed has his unique observations and insightful insights.

However, even though Kissinger’s warnings were profound and even devout, his proposal was very mythical and very false, and suspected of worrying and helping the CCP. Based on his understanding of the CCP, how could that be proposed “America and its Western allies need to ‘gain sympathy’ about the global hierarchy with China”? The CCP is not like the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire or the Ottoman Empire, but a communist regime that transcends all evil empires. The CCP despises the global order, and is incapable of gaining sympathy with the West! American visionaries have already realized that without destroying the CCP, the CCP will destroy the entire Western world and enslave humanity!

Yes, the international community today is facing much more danger than 100 years ago, high-tech weapons will lead to “fierce conflict “. Prohibiting the CCP from exposure to the most sophisticated high-tech weapons is the key to avoiding conflict, which is also the exact national policy that Trumpism has enforced. Search “Gaining sympathy with the CCP”, it is only helping the CCP to rapidly accelerate its acquisition of sophisticated high technology. A government that uses artificial intelligence, genetic weapons to cover, knows that it will be discarded by history, despised by the people of the country, how can it be sitting down to negotiate with the US and seek peaceful coexistence?

Kissinger’s proposal is extremely paranoid, hopefully not going to distract Mr. Blinken. However, if Mr. Biden’s team continues to insist that they refuse to awaken and believe that between the US and China “Still has a space for cooperation”, then the gunshots in Sarajevo can really happen again!
