EDITOR’S NOTE: As indicated by the following VOA dispatch, the incredibly incompetent Bush administration has been spectacularly successful in driving rising China and resurgent Russia closer together. Richard Nixon must be rolling in his grave. Dr. Kissinger, where are you? Read on….
China made clear Tuesday that it opposes the US plan to put interceptors in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic to deter potential missile attacks from so-called rogue states.
At a weekly press briefing, Jiang Yu, spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry, said the shield would upset a delicate balance of security among major powers.
“The Chinese side has always held that missile defense impacts the strategic balance and stability,” Jiang said. “It is not conducive to mutual trust between major powers and also regional security. It can also bring new proliferation problems.”
China sides with Russia, another vocal opponent of the proposed missile defense system, in demanding the US scrap the plan. US officials say the shield is not offensive and would only be used to defend against attacks from nations such as Iran and North Korea.
China has repeatedly criticized US plans to deploy a missile defense system in Asia with the cooperation of Japan.
Last week, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates offered to brief China on the proposed Asian missile defense shield with the aim of reassuring Beijing that it would not threaten China’s nuclear deterrent.
Russian president Putin has warned that his country could target missiles at Europe if the US deploys the defense shield in Eastern Europe.
President Bush on Tuesday insisted during a news conference in Prague that the shield is not aimed at Russia and invited the Russians to take part in the project.
Amid increasingly credible intelligence reports that Al Qaeada and Iran may be preparing nuclear attacks against the United States and Israel–using smuggled atomic warheads, North Korean missiles, sea-launched nuclear-tipped Scuds, or radioactive dirty bombs–the Muslim world must be told in no uncertain terms that Mecca and all other Muslim holy sites will be destroyed in the event of another mega-terrorist assault against the West.
In fact, a case could be made for taking out Iran, Pakistan, and Mecca now–while there is still time to strike first.
Islam and Islamism are virtually synonymous; the organized religion–inherently intolerant and violent–has essentially been taken over by the fascist creed that cloaks itself in clerical garb. Ugly, bloody Islam and imperialist Islamism are one and the same. Therefore, winning the war against Islam/Islamism can only be achieved (a) by delivering mass death and dstruction to the Islamic/Islamist enemy, and (b) by causing a crisis in faith among tens of millions of ordinary Muslims.
Like the German Nazis, the Muslim masses must be brought to their knees–not in prayer–but in mass hysteria and despair in the face of actual proof that their barbaric beliefs have led only to self-destruction.
We’ve said this before but it’s worth repeating: End Islam before it ends us.
