​#TonyTran2015 says USA is now facing the age old tactics by China: Understanding the Strike-then-Consolate Tactic #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.11: This is an excellent News and Views posts by my friend Tony and his reply today on ‘ South China Sea ‘ and Beijing’s growing influence under Xi Jin-ping …well worth a read and any comments …his site is chocked full of interesting posts please visit link at bottom of post #AceNewsDesk reports

TonyTran2015 says China has completely broken the backbone of Vietnam, turning it from a Little Dragon into a Paralysed Snake, or a vegetative Lotus. Next is the Phillipines under Duterte. There are only two possible exits:
a. Either total submission or
b. Strikeback suddenly at any moment of advantage (Like the Soviet Union).
It has never been good to feed a reptile to give it a chance to turn into a monster Dinaosaur.

The current (1990 to 2017) situation on the Scarborough Shoal (Dao Vanh Khan as claimed by Vietnam) in the Sea of West Phillipines is interesting, It offers an example of the Tactic of Strike-then-Consolate in diplomacy.

Its resultant “mutual cooperations” is then revealed as only part of a long term plan for further aggression.

1. Concept of Strike-then-Consolate.

The aggressor nation finds an opportunity to attack the victim nation and makes territorial gains. Right after that, before international reaction can develop, thw aggressor offers to give back half the gains to make peace with the weaker victim. The weak victim may accept that offer if it cannot rely on internarional help or if its unpopular leader wants to make external peace to have time to strengthen his grip on domestic power (that is its leader sacrifies national interests to further his personal gains).

2. Application of Strike-then-Consolate.

2a. The aggressor nation looks for a neighbour with unpopular leader. Failing that it may promote corruptions, non-transparent dealings in that country to weaken popular support for the government of that nation.
2b. When popular support of the intended victim nation has reached a low point, the aggressor creates economic, environmental, social chaos to brew anti-government protests, uprisals and revolts.
2c. The defence of the victim nation is then dispirited weakened.
2d. A quick military attack is carried out for territorial gains.
2e. A peace delegate is immediately sent to the victim nation to offer peace with the return of half of the territorial gains together with some economic aids! “Mutual Cooperations” is a part of the package of economic “aids” by the aggressor to its victim.

3. “Mutual Cooperations” is never a fair deal.

“Mutual cooperations” from the aggressor always requires from the victim nation the following conditions:
3a. Not to take the aggressor to any international authority.
3b. The victim nation giving unaccountable benefits to its deal makers (that is giving high rewards to those who favors the deal).
3c. The victim nation allowing personels of the aggressor to be in vital future positions.
3d. The victim nation demoting fervent nationalists in its defence force.
3e. The victim nation ceasing most of its defence industrial plans.
3f. The victim nation reorganize its government and development plans to suit the aggressor.

4. So what is Mutual Cooperations in reality?

Mutual Cooperation is only a conditional surrender to the aggressor.
Sun Tzu said that the best victory is a victory gained without using the army!

CHINA: ‘ Beijing stops construction in South China Sea – FM ‘

#AceNewsReport – CHINA:Aug.05: Beijing has stopped construction in the South China Sea, the country’s foreign minister said on Wednesday.

“China has already stopped,” Reuters quoted Wang Yi as saying at a meeting of Southeast Asian foreign ministers where the disputed waters have taken center stage. “Just take an airplane to take a look.”

IRAN: ‘ Lawmakers Chanting “Death to America” Vote to Ban Access to Military sites, documents & scientists as part of Nuclear Deal ‘

#AceBreakingNews – IRAN:June.22: With some lawmakers chanting “Death to the America,” Iran’s parliament voted Sunday to ban access to military sites, documents and scientists as part of a future deal with world powers over its contested nuclear program.

The bill, if approved into law, could complicate the ongoing talks in Vienna between Iran and the six-nation group (#P6+Iran) the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — as they face a self-imposed June 30 deadline. The talks are focused on reaching a final accord that curbs Iran’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of economic sanctions.

CHINA: ‘ Deadly Storms Kill 18-people and leaves thousands displaced ‘

#AceNewsReport – CHINA:June.20: Deadly storms have swept through China, killing 18 people and leaving four missing in several provinces, the Ministry of Civil Affairs reported on Friday.

More than eight inches of rain have fallen over the period of 48 hours in certain towns, while thousands of homes were ruined, displacing tens of thousands of residents.

Houses collapsing, mudslides, lightning and drowning have all contributed to the deaths. Hubei province had it worst, with 664,000 people affected.

Neighbouring Hunan province was next, with 527,000 people affected.

#A.N.Report: Rare Earth Industry may see a Revival as a Chilean Company sets out to make it Green & Clean ‘

#AceNewsReport – Chile Report:June.16: The rare earths industry is about to experience a clean-versus-dirty battle until now only seen among fuel producers, as a Chilean company is stepping up efforts to grab some of that market in a much greener way than China, the world’s top producer of such elements.

 Mineria Activa’s project aims to develop the market for rare earths in the copper producing country, based on a recent survey that showed there are major concentrations of elements such as neodymium and dysprosium, south of capital Santiago. What’s even better: those deposits are quite similar to the ones found in southern China.

The firm’s project, named Biolantánidos, will dig out the clay, put it through a tank-leaching process with biodegradable chemicals and return it cleaned to the ground, replanting pine and eucalyptus trees. In China, operators pump ammonium sulfate into the ground and wait for the chemical to seep out with the minerals.

“It may be laborious,” Arturo Albornoz, who heads the project told Bloomberg, but he believes that soon firms such as ThyssenKrupp AG, Apple Inc. and Tomahawk cruise missile maker Raytheon Co. will choose to pay a bit more for supplies extracted in a way that doesn’t destroy the planet. “It’s our big bet on green mining,” he added.

Currently China continues to dominate the rare earth market, producing about 90% of the elements that are vital in the creation of a big variety of electronic technologies including lithium car batteries, solar panels, wind turbines, flat-screen television, compact fluorescent light bulbs, petroleum-to-gasoline catalytic cracking, and military defence components such as missile guidance systems.

WASHINGTON: ‘ US Grand Strategy for War Against China takes one Step towards the Abyss ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:June.16: A post on May.10:2015, discusses the advanced stage of discussions in US foreign policy circles over the pursuit of an ever-more aggressive policy toward China has been revealed by the recent release of a chilling report under the auspices of the influential Council on Foreign Relations.

Entitled “Revising US Grand Strategy Toward China,” the report is nothing less than an agenda for war. It is authored by Robert D. Blackwill and Ashley J. Tellis, both of whom have close connections to the US State Department and various American foreign policy think tanks.The report cites a publication produced during World War II defining “grand strategy” as one that “so integrates the policies and armaments of a nation that the resort to war is either rendered unnecessary or is undertaken with the maximum chance of victory.” This is not merely a concept of war but “an inherent element of statecraft at all times.”The report’s central theme is that US global dominance is threatened by the rise of China and this process must be reversed by economic, diplomatic and military means.

Significantly, at the beginning of the report, its authors cite the Pentagon’s Defence Planning Guidance document of 1992, produced in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, which insisted that US strategy had to “refocus on precluding the emergence of any potential future global competitor.”

While asserting that China has a “grand strategy” for regional and ultimately global domination, the authors make clear they regard the threat to the US position as arising from China’s economic growth within the present international order.

​​This analysis recalls that advanced at the beginning of 1907 by the senior British Foreign Office official Eyre Crowe about the impact on Britain of the rise of Germany. Crowe concluded that, whatever the intentions of its leaders, Germany’s economic expansion, in and of itself, constituted a threat to the British Empire. Seven years later, the two major powers were at war.

China is not an imperialist power as Germany was, but its very economic rise is undermining the US position.

China: Everest shifted 3 centimeters after Nepal quake

#AceNewsReport – BEIJING:June.16: Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, was moved three centimeters southwest by the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that devastated Nepal in April, Chinese authorities say.

But the April 25 quake, which left more than 8,000 people dead, did not affect the height of the 8,848-meter mountain, according to the report by China’s National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation.

Chinese state media reported the administration had set a satellite monitoring system on the peak in 2005 to observe the movement of the mountain.

In the decade since, Everest had been moving northeast at a speed of four centimeters a year, and had grown by 0.3 centimeter annually, state media reported.

The April earthquake reversed the direction of the mountain, shifting it to roughly where it would have been nine months earlier.

It triggered a number of avalanches on and around the mountain — which is located at the border of Nepal and China — claiming the lives of many climbers. The deaths led mountaineering companies to call off their climbs for the rest of the season.

New data showed a second deadly quake in Nepal, which struck on May 12 with a magnitude of 7.5, did not move the mountain, state media reported.

Previous analyses by seismologists have said that the mountain likely shifted by as much as meters in the quake, but the height was likely unchanged.
