Porkins on Sputnik: China Defends 10% Military Budget Increase as ‘Proportionate and Low’

The Chinese government recently announced a near 10% increase in their military budget for 2018. Chinese state media have defended the decision, saying it is part of a modernization program, calling the increase “proportionate and low.”

The increase is the biggest jump in Chinese military spending in recent years. In 2014, the total was $132 billion, which grew to $145 billion in 2015, $147 billion in 2016 and will reach $175 billion next year. Zhang Yesui, a spokesperson for the first annual session of the 13th NPC, explained that the extra money is not to increase China’s overall military capacity, but to update and modernize their armed forces:

“A large part of the growth of the defense budget is to make up for the low military spending in the past and is mainly used to upgrade equipment and improve the welfare of servicemen and women and the living and training conditions of grassroots troops.”

Sputnik spoke to political analyst Pearse Redmond about the geopolitical struggles that are the underlying reasons for China’s consistently growing military expenditure:

“As China becomes more and more integrated in the global economy it understands that maintaining economic superiority requires more security. In Africa, where China has poured vast sums of money into various projects, they have also been quietly building small military bases and developing relationships with various African military and security forces. For example, in Djibouti, once the exclusive military domain of the US, China now operates a naval base adjacent to the Port of Doraleh, which is west of Djibouti City.”

American colonization of Africa rapidly increasing

The colonization of Africa by the Untied States is rapidly increasing. Through the use of AFRICOM, America is turning the continent into one massive military base. From this base the US and other globalist powers (France in particular) will be able to control all of the resources that make Africa so tantalizing. Furthermore, this colonization effort will ensure that the perpetual war on terror never ever ends. With each new effort by AFRICOM to maintain a strangle hold on the continent, more and more Al Qaeda “connected” groups pop up. The fact that these groups only seem to have a presence in nations rich with oil, gold, uranium and other minerals seems to have been overlooked by both corporate and alternative media. If you listen to AFRICOM propagandists their presence is merely to help ensure security and safety in Africa.

The largest and most public acknowledged base in Africa is Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti. This former French base is to be transformed from a modest 20 acre site, to a sprawling 600 acre base, housing 4,000 military personal and civilian contractors. I ask you, do you even have a clue where Djibouti is on a map? Have you any idea of the history of the east African nation? Pray tell, do you have any idea why your tax dollars are being spent $1.2 billion dollar project? No doubt it’s proximity to Somalia factored into this equation. While we’re on the subject, perhaps you should ask yourself why thousands of troops (3,500 to be exact) returning home from Iraq and Afgahistan are now being trained to carry out over 100 missions in Africa this year alone. the short answer to this is to maintain perpetual warfare around the globe. As the war on terror slowly shifts away from central Asia and the middle east a new battle ground must be found. Without this the warfare state and military industrial congressional complex would cease to exist. For the West and their minions this is tantamount to the apocalypse. For their existence to be justified they must engineer conflict and chaos.

The war in the Central African Republic

The latest machination to colonize Africa is taking place in the poor nation known as the Central African Republic. This former French colony has seen perpetual coups, rebels groups, and it’s sovereignty usurped by Weatern powers. Since the recent Western back coup of president Bozizé in March of this year by Seleka rebels, the nation has been taken over by the former leader of the Seleka rebel group Michel Djotodia. Djotodia has since claimed to have dissolved the Seleka rebels, but this has never been the case with African rebel groups. The names of the groups change but their mission of destabilization remains the same. As the situation continues to deteriorate in CAR an international coalition of African and western forces is being formed to take over the nation. On the African side we have US proxy Uganda ready to commit 2,000 troops to a 5,000 troop African Union peace keeping force. On the Western side former colonial master France is intending to commit more troops to help preserve their interests in gold and uranium.

CAR is the perfect place to ramp up the recolonization of Africa. It is nation that most people don’t know exists. This allows for little scrutiny from media outlets. It is also victim to the phony war on terror narrative which pits the Islamic Seleka rebels against CAR Christians. This narrative is always needed to help win over the hearts and minds of the Western public. Most importantly though are the vast reserves of gold, diamonds, and uranium in CAR. With the ensuing collapse of the fiat monetary system, nations such as China, India, and France have been buying and looting gold supply’s of various countries.

I fully understand that this is quite a lot of information to digest. We are talking about multiple countries and agendas that all intersect. But I urge you to pay attention to what is happening in Africa at the moment. With the west conducting proxy wars in Mali, Niger, Libya, Somalia, CAR and a host of other African nations, time must be spent to understand why we are there. When you start to peel back the layers you can begin to understand the control grid that has been placed upon us at the behest of the state, military, and global financial elites. In the coming decades we will see more and more involvement in Africa through militarized conflict. If we don’t begin to understand and fight back against this warfare state we will forever be victims and pawns of a global elite intent on controlling the world.

My conversation with Tom Secker on ClandesTime

I recently had the great honor of talking with Tom Secker on his podcast ClandesTime about the Westgate attack and the evolving war on terror.  Tom is a researcher and film maker, and an all around amazing person.  You can find Tom’s fascinating  work at his websites Investigating the Terror, and Spy Culture.  His Films 7/7: Seeds of Deconstruction and 7/7: Crime and Predjudice are both available on YouTube, and are extremely invaluable sources of information on 7/7, terrorism and topics such as predictive programing.

Germany about to enter neo-colonial war in Mali

The Bundestag has approved the deployment of 330 military personal to Mali to help France and AFRICOM’s colonial conquest.  This comes on the back of a recent operation by French forces in a village near the strategic city of Gao.  It wasn’t that long ago that France and much of Europe condemned America for their colonial war in Iraq.   Amazing what a few years can do to a population and its leaders.

Obama’s militarization of Africa expands to Niger

Obama’s re-colonization of Africa continues to march on. The imperialist president has alerted Congress that he has sent 100 armed troops to Niger helping to set up the newest drone base in Africa. Supposedly the drone base is there to help the French imperialists fight Al Qaeda militants in neighboring Mali, but this is just cover for AFRICOM’s conquest of west Africa. Even though this is being reported in the mainstream media the general public doesn’t seem to care. For the political right this is totally fine and justifiable in their unending fight against Islamic terrorists, where as the cowardly left is completely fine with this provided the person implementing it has a “D” next to their name. The African people, who will suffer the blowback of such policies, are of course never consulted on wether or not they would like an American special forces operating an assassination drone base in their country. Obama relies on the support of authoritarian African leaders who will sell out their own country for money and military hardware from America. With all of the discussion in the past few weeks on drones, thanks in part to the Senate confirmation hearings of the assassination czar John Brennan, you might think that Americans would at the very least question the perceived benefit of yet another drone base in a foreign country. But alas the general public doesn’t bat an eye. What’s to worry about? It’s not like an influx of American military personal and advisers has ever had a negative effect on a foreign countries politics or internal conflicts.

Disinformation on Mali

There is a tremendous amount of disinformation that is circulated in the mainstream/corporate media with regards to the current situation in Mali. The best example of this would be a recent interview that Brian Lehr did with Morehouse college professor Laura Seay discussing her recent article in Foreign Policy titled, “Mali is not a Stan.” Like everyone else in the mainstream/corporate Seay doesn’t think that France has any interest in the massive gold and uranium reserves, she in fact lies and says the reserves are small, and omits any discussion of AFRICOM, which with the help of Lehr leaves the citizen brainwashed into thinking that intervention and the West are forces for good in Africa. It’s alright to send in foreign troops to bomb and murder Malians because as Morehouse professor Laura Seay says in her article the government of Mali, headed by a military junta commanded by the American trained Capt. Amadou Sanogo, asked the French to come in and help. Why how else are we going to stop those Islamist terrorists from taking over? Unfortunately a lot of people will absorb this sort of drivel and really believe it. Don’t bother reading the article or listening to the interview unless you want to be propagandized to by a bunch of hacks.

For a brief but much more nuanced explanation for the current situation in Mali check out this segment from RT with F. William Engdahl, research associate at Global Research.

AFRICOM and President Obama’s horrifying vision for a militarized Africa is disturbing to say the least. AFRICOM is perhaps the most despicable Bush era foreign policy that Obama has embraced so enthusiastically. If you really are interested into exploring how far down the rabbit hole the situation in Mali goes I suggest the following article’s:
