    Has He Become “Mentally Unstable”? Obama Now Provoking China With Warships

    This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his Economic Collapse Blog.

    Editor’s Comment: With the United States already at fever pitch with Russia over the Syrian and Ukrainian crises, why not start some stuff with China too? It is clear that foreign policy – directed by our misleaders – is more and more intent on sowing chaos. Why do it? In a truly bad economy, as the U.S. had in the decade prior to WWII, it is last ditch Hail Mary! effort to turn a profit through the industry of suffering and death.

    Mere stoking of tensions may be enough for awhile, but eventually, the investors are going to be eager for the real thing. Someone really must stop all this.

    ‘Mentally Unstable’ Obama Looking To Start A War With China?

    by Michael Snyder

    This week, Barack Obama sent a guided missile destroyer into disputed waters in the South China Sea to see if the Chinese would start shooting at it. Yes, this is what he actually did. Fortunately for us, the Chinese backed down and did not follow through on their threats to take military action. Instead, the Chinese have chosen to respond with very angry words. The Chinese ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, says that what Obama did was “a very serious provocation, politically and militarily.” And as you will see below, a state-run newspaper stated that China “is not frightened to fight a war with the US in the region”. So why in the world would Obama provoke the Chinese like this? Yes, the Chinese claims in the South China Sea are questionable. But there are other ways to resolve things like this. My friend Rick Wiles began his radio broadcast yesterday by suggesting that these kinds of actions show that Barack Obama has become “mentally unstable”, and I would have to agree. You don’t risk military confrontations that could potentially spark World War III unless you have a really good reason to do so.

    The Global Times is a Chinese state-run newspaper that has very close ties to the Communist party. After Obama’s provocation in the South China Sea, it published an editorial entitled “After the show, it’s time for US destroyer to leave“. The following is the most alarming portion of that editorial…

    In face of the US harassment, Beijing should deal with Washington tactfully and prepare for the worst. This can convince the White House that China, despite its unwillingness, is not frightened to fight a war with the US in the region, and is determined to safeguard its national interests and dignity.

    Beijing ought to carry out anti-harassment operations. We should first track the US warships. If they, instead of passing by, stop for further actions, it is necessary for us to launch electronic interventions, and even send out warships, lock them by fire-control radar and fly over the US vessels.

    Another major Chinese newspaper also responded very angrily

    The People’s Liberation Army Daily, China’s leading military newspaper, used a front-page editorial to accuse the US of sowing chaos in countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq.

    “Cast-iron facts show that time and again the United States recklessly uses force and starts wars, stirring things up where once there was stability, causing the bitterest of harm to those countries directly involved,” the newspaper said, according to Reuters.

    But the Obama administration is not backing down.

    In fact, CNN is reporting that the decision has already been made to send even more patrols cruising by the disputed islands.

    What do you think that will do to our delicate relationship with China?

    Most Americans assume that an actual shooting war between the United States and China is not even within the realm of possibility, but many of our leaders see things very differently. For instance, just check out what CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell thinks

    The current posturing in the area has led to heightened tensions between the world’s preeminent military powers, and in May Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell told CNN that the confrontation indicates there is “absolutely” a risk of the U.S. and China going to war sometime in the future.

    And Barack Obama’s good buddy George Soros has warned that the threat of a third world war involving the United States and China is very real

    Earlier this year, billionaire investor George Soros also cautioned that the ruling Communist Party may see fit to rally its population around an external threat in order to head off a societal collapse in the aftermath of an economic implosion.

    “There is a real danger that China will align itself with Russia politically and militarily, and then the threat of third world war becomes real,” said Soros.

    Needless to say, if our relationship with China breaks down that is going to be really, really bad for the global economy. China accounts for more global trade than anyone else in the world, and the U.S. is number two.

    And already we are witnessing a slowdown in global trade which is more than just a little bit alarming. So far in 2015 total global trade is down 8.4 percent, U.S. exports are down 11 percent, and Chinese imports during the month of September were down a whopping 20.4 percent from a year earlier.

    So what do you think that an actual shooting war between the two great economic superpowers would do?

    Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to move toward sparking World War III in the Middle East as well. On Tuesday, we learned that Obama has authorized “direct action on the ground” in Iraq and in Syria. That means that our boys and girls could potentially end up in combat in areas inside Syria where the Russians are currently conducting operations. The following comes from NBC News

    Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that the U.S. will begin “direct action on the ground” against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, aiming to intensify pressure on the militants as progress against them remains elusive.

    “We won’t hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground,” Carter said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee, using an alternative name for the militant group.

    When pressed, Carter admitted that U.S. soldiers “will be in harm’s way, no question about it“.

    Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the president that brought all of our troops home and ended all of the wars?

    Instead, his arrogance just seems to grow by the day and he is threatening to plunge the entire planet into World War III.

    So what do you think of Barack Obama’s recent “foreign policy decisions”?

              “In face of the US harassment …” LMAO!!! 🙂

              The propaganda in this statement is ass deep to a tall Indian. Has anyone every looked at a map of the South China Sea to see where the Spratly Islands are ???

              Hint: They are nowhere near China, and in fact would more reasonably belong to Vietnam, or other countries in the immediate vicinity who RIGHTFULLY have territorial claims there.

              A large portion of global trade passes through the South China Sea as Asian countries trade with one another, Japan, the USA, and even Europe. Those are strategic, international sea lanes.

              Let’s remember that only a month or so ago, Chinese warships sailed within 12 miles of Alaska, while Obola was there, and we didn’t bitch about it, because it was according to International Law (and we hoped a well placed cruise missile would end America’s agony).

              The China apologists in Alt Media today are the Chamberlain of British PM fame who infamously appeased Hitler when his aggression began, and the result was WW II.

              Get the FACTS straight Michael. The readers here at SHTF Plan deserve the FACTS. 🙂

              • Breathial says:

                I’m curious. Is there ANYTHING the government does, that you don’t actually agree with?

                Do you have any principles, beyond being a .gov shill?

                Enquiring minds, and all that…

                • durangokidd says:

                  “I’m curious. Is there ANYTHING the government does, that you don’t actually agree with?”

                  Yes check the archives. There is a great deal that I don’t like and often times I was the first to point out these problems to this community.

                  By the same token I am critical of Alt Media when their agenda warps reality; like this article does.

                  There are sooooo many legitimate policy errors by government that hurt the American worker, family, and taxpayer, that those of US on Alt media do not need to make things up or slant reality as does this article.

                  What are these “policy errors” ??? Illegal immigration, Free Trade (which is neither free or fair), quantitative easing (which replaces the losses of the banks but not the losses of homeowners for example), the Patriot Act, NDAA, the loss of habeas corpus, warrantless searches, gun registration / confiscation …. the list is endless.

                  But for this article to suggest that the US should not be demanding “open seas” and the right of passage on those seas is somehow “harassment” is inaccurate if not down right asinine. And it is definitely propaganda when it is obviously NOT true.

                  Given the Chinese rationale, the USA could anchor an aircraft carrier in the South China Sea and declare the space around it sovereign.

                  Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. 🙂

                    LOL… you are losing it DK!

                    Territorial waters or a territorial sea as defined (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) is a belt of coastal waters extending at most 12 nautical miles from a LAND MASS. The territorial sea around the land is regarded as the sovereign territory of the state.

                    Your analgoy to an anchored aircraft carrier is pure bunkum, and I can’t believe you actually posted that crap! An aircraft carrier is not a “Land Mass”… got it???

                    Do you understand the difference between a goose and a gander?

                  • durangokidd says:

                    Hey Dumbfuck!!! I’ve been missing you. News flash !!! The USA has not ratified The latest Law of the Sea, so it can do what it damn well wants, with the most powerful blue water navy in the world.

                    Wrong again !!! LMAO !!! 🙂

                  • durangokidd says:

                    BTW: The USA is not taking sides in the dispute over the ownership of these islands. Nor has the USA violated the integrity of the 12 mile sovereignty of the sea around the islands.

                    The USA is claiming the right of passage in international waters. You don’t even know what the ISSUE is. You are a fucking moron !!! 🙂

                    durangokidd said:

                    “The USA has not ratified The latest Law of the Sea…”

                    The fact is, the USG accepts all but Part XI of the UNCLOS. Part XI of the Convention provides for a regime relating to minerals on the seabed OUTSIDE any state’s territorial waters or EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zones). It establishes an International Seabed Authority (ISA) to authorize seabed exploration and mining and collect and distribute the seabed mining royalty. The USG rejects this for obvious reasons (gangsters would)!

                    “The USA is not taking sides in the dispute over the ownership of these islands. Nor has the USA violated the integrity of the 12 mile sovereignty of the sea around the islands.”

                    Really??? Is that why the USG sent a destroyer within the 12 mile limit… because “The USA is not taking sides in the dispute over the ownership of these islands. Nor has the USA violated the integrity of the 12 mile sovereignty of the sea around the islands.”

                DK,

                Absolutely right.

                China says artifically creasted islands not for military purposes – bulls**t.
                How the F*** China can make a claim of ownership of the entire South China Sea is insane.
                China’s bluff has been called and the PLA had to back down.

                Seriously if China built an island of the coast of CONUS and claim ownership of the Pacific Ocean, then maybe Michael would understand how insane this all is.

                China is weak and what the west sees as strength is really just a Potemkin village.

                • Joe Biden says:

                  China backed down this time, but for how long? A far east war would have long supply lines for USA. We had trouble staffing the adventure in Iraq. I doubt a conventional conflict with China would require fewer people.

                “Rightfully” LMAO… On what basis then does the USG claim rightful possession of American Samoa???

                American Samoa is nowhere near Amerika (unless you think 5000 miles is “in the immediate vicinity”), and so by your reasoning, it should in fact “rightfully” belong to Samoa! Except it doesn’t. Why? Because Uncle said so.

                What about the Falkland Islands? 8000 miles is “rightfully” around the corner from 10 Downing street, right?

                The Falklands being 300 miles off the coast of Argentina rightfully matters not. Argentina has no rightful territorial claims. Why? Because the Crown said so!

                What about New Caledonia? The place is 17,000 miles from France, and yet the French are said to have a rightful claim to the island. Why? Because Napoleon III said so in 1853.

                Get the FACTS straight DK. The readers here at SHTF Plan deserve the FACTS.

                The fact is this: Possession is nine-tenths of the law… especially when ones guns are bigger than another’s.

                • durangokidd says:

                  “On what basis then does the USG claim rightful possession of American Samoa???” By victory over Japan in WW II and the Samoan Constitution.

          Acid Etch… No doubt free speech is the target. I believe the TPP and the other so called trade deals have free speech in their crosshairs also. The agenda of the controllers is becoming more bold as people are waking up to the plans for the dissolution of their first amendment right to free speech and free assembly. Those rights will be have to be taken to the streets to be maintained. There will have to be a mass publc display of major objection. In other words, the shit hitting the fan by the people in support of free speech.

Anywho…I say what’s the point of bitchin about it anymore, let’s just all sit back, crack open a cold beer and enjoy the fireworks and the grand finale

      • smokey says:

        We’ve been sending US naval vessels to cruise in international waters claimed as territorial by one power or another for the last hundred years, China included.

        It’s very carefully planned and controlled, nothing ‘unstable’ about it.

        This article’s premise is entirely crap. There’s no way in hell the military is going to allow a mentally unstable commander in chief to start a war.

      I don’t think China will respond militarily. They don’t need to with all the other options available. Da prez knows this. If he provokes them maybe they’ll respond with a cyber attack or emp. Hell maybe they’ll just sell off more of our debt that they hold. Be creative people

      so if he sends warships he’s “mentally unstable”

      Chinese ships sent to Bearing Sea. Chinese aircraft carrier in the Med. Russia sends Naval task force to Med to include a Typhoon Class, ICBM sub. Russian subs targeting underwater communication cables.

        The problem with a lot of this political speculation is that the decisions & lack of decisions are not basically political,they are financial.The middle east is a perfect example.I just checked a chart & it stated that Approx.57,000 Americans have been killed or wounded in Iraq & Afghanistan.We are stuck in never ending wars in a region in which we can’t win,if we won the conflicts we will have won nothing,the grand prize to the winner is zero,there is nothing there worth winning!That is the political side that we see,..but what about the financial side that we are not allowed to see? on that side the Military/industrial complex is raking in the profits of never ending war,like General Smedley Butler said”War is a Racket”.Want to end the warfare in the Middle East?Put a leash on the Warfare supply industry & the fighting would come to a halt in a couple of months!This will never happen of course.What politician would have the nerve to obstruct & stop the weapons trafficking run by the bankers & arms merchants who are the owners of the political process!

      I don’t think Obama is actually running anything. Information that has leaked out indicates he’s isolated, misses most of the staff meetings and really can’t make a sound decision. It has also leaked he’s on anti-depressants. I think the chiefs of staffs and the pentagon are running things. If they screw up, they can easily say Obama gave the order. I think Obama is too incompetent to make that type of decision.

      Somehow I tend to believe Mr. O thinks all this is funny and pushing Mr. P and and now China is the thing to do. He can’t really be that stupid, it must be an act.

        I think maybe the answer lies with Obama’s HANDLERS.

        I can’t help but think perhaps his current behavior arises from the fact that they’re pushing him to do things EVEN HE knows is ridiculous. Let’s not forget, obungler is a NWO globalist elite puppet. HE doesn’t actually call the shots.

      and here I was reading on this site that the Chinese foot soldiers where gonna don blue helmets. and invade the USA and help the NWO mop up the second admendment believers. Are they our allies and trading partners or the new (for this week) evil empire?

      • deerhunter says:

        Anyone wearing a blue helmet will be a target. Better be wearing local LEO or US military fatigues, blend in.

        • Deerhunter – The Blue Helmet Theory I agree on … but I have to kindly disagree with your LEO/US Military Fatigues blending in scenario.

          That is the worst advice you could hand out to anybody.
          If you honestly think that somebody dressing up in LEO/US Military Apparel will not become a Target, you sir are sadly mistaken.

          That is not blending in, that would be a person standing out attracting attention, which is a position a person does not want to find themselves in.

          Stay away from Military apparel – wear earth tone colors and stay incognito as much as possible.

          • deerhunter says:

            I was talking about the invaders from the UN trying to blend in Texas. Unless they are from some third world African country then they will still stick out.

      Ask yourselves this.

      Should we exchange nuclear weapons and YOU survive. What would you think of Obama then? I mean if we ever get to hear what he had to say to the American public after such an attack.

      I don’t feel safe. I think we have a leader whose game plan is no better than a community basketball game.

      well, they cant march into the USA
      the islands they are developing could be eliminated in 5 minutes with B52 bombers
      economic weapons are the only way they can hurt us

      • Mockingjay2015 – even if a person thinks China’s army may be weak, they make up the weakness with NUMBERS!

        Historical records has shown many times in the past how a piss poor equipped force can overrun an advancing enemy. Don’t think for a moment that something like that could not happen here on our shores.

        We may have a technological advance in equipment, but we don’t have the troop strength to counter an invasion if were to happen.

        • smokey says:

          They can’t put too much of their army on those built-up coral reefs and seamounts in the China Sea, nor can they ever hope to move any portion of it over here to the US.

          They are putting airfields on those islands, that’s the thing to be concerned about. The Malacca Straits and Celebes Channel can be controlled from there, that means any ship headed towards Australia, South Korea, Japan, Philippines, or US and North/South America, can be interdicted. Cut off the Middle East oil and it’s game over in a few weeks.

      What it may be about is this: All of these leaders(Obama, Putin, the leaders in China) may have a common interest in a world war. Look at Putin. He might want to have more of a Soviet Union style absolute government with him as leader. He could accomplish that through necessary consolidation of power in a world war.
      Obama might be wanting the same thing and could likely accomplish it if he declared martial law under said world war. He seems to think he is the smartest guy in the room and might feel he’s doing us all a favor becoming king of America.
      The Chinese reasoning is explained in the article.

        I’m actually quite happy that McCain isn’t in the White House as his stay at the infamous Hanoi Hilton apparently either made him nuts or taught him nothing.

        When a nation possesses nuclear weapons and a delivery system you cut them as wide of a berth as possible allowing them sufficient independent resources for survival. We’re playing around in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. I don’t see Chinese and Russians in Mexico.

        Anyone advocating using military force against these two nations under the conditions outlined, Ukraine, Syria and South China Sea is mad. Absolutely crazy.

    23. Kevin2 says:

      I have no doubt that China will secure oil / energy resources that cannot be cut off. It just so happens that within a short distance from their country lay such a supply. They will slowly and methodically build the security zone and then the infrastructure. No single move will be provocative enough to justify any response.

      Energy is the life blood of an industrial nation. China not too long in the past would loose 5 million people per year because of starvation. I believe they look at this as food for their table. The US las lost less than 1.5 million if all wars were totaled from the Revolution to date. China is not playing games here. For them this is long term survival.

        Every single one of these anti-depressants have one thing in common. All of them warn that they may cause “suicidal thoughts” & “violent behavior”.

        Why would a doctor prescribe this crap to patients who claim to be depressed? [rhetorical question]

Those nuclear bursts will overload and fry the main substation high voltage transformers with EMP waves. The grid will go down for years, and America as you know it will cease to exist.

However is they come here and decide to shoot us us, and start a war. Then suddenly i wont be scared any more and i will fire on them and kill them without hesitation. I will not be asking myself and conservations with myself about why i let this happen when the chi-coms line me up at the edge of the mass graves on the local fields of Houston, to .50 cal me, then throw me in the said mass grave. I will not be one of those guys. Its not a wonder why elies are bailing out to the under ground bases. They know that if the after we defeat the chinese, that they are next. I have no problem with the chinese people i general in my city, in fact i am friends with some of them and they like me. Some of them have told me that they dont like china, since they are now living here and that they like Texas and the freedom and would not want to ever go back to live in china. Some of them have told me that if chinese soldiers come here that they will fire on them. So Xi and all the visas that he issued telling them to come to America and take it over may see his own occupiers firing on his soldiers when they entire Texas.

      This article is Bullshit. Since the time of the Barbary Pirates the U.S. Navy has reserved the right to go and navigate in recognized international waters. The current limit which a country can claim is 12 nautical miles from its shores. Everything else is “free sea”. The Chinese are the obvious aggressors here. They have created an artificial land mass in a strategic body of international water and claimed it as sovereign territory as well as several hundred miles of shipping lanes surrounding it. I was in the Navy task Force that sailed through such an artificial construct in 1981. In 1981 Khaddafi declared 300 miles of ocean of the shores of Lybia as his territory and drew a “Line of Death” for anyone who crossed it . Reagan sent a task force through it and the Lybians foolishly sortied some MIGs to attack our flag ship the USS Nimitz. We splashed a few of them and no more was heard of the Line of Death. My point is that throughout history different powers have attempted to impose their will on weaker neighbors by restricting the freedom of the seas. That is what Cihina is attempting now. If we and subsequently the rest of the world accept this now, where does it end. The threat of war is Always with us, Americans need to grow a spine and stand up to aggression on the seas, and that is EXACTLY what this is. I can’t stand Obama but this one he is getting right.

      While I am certainly no fan of this President, and while I DO believe his a self-absorbed narcissist, as a retired senior naval officer I can tell you that this is nothing more than a routine activity for the US Navy (and should be). These types of missions are called Freedom of Navigation Operations (FONOPS) and are done to re-assert internationally agreed nation-state boundaries whenever and wherever any nation claims water rights that are not those to legally claim. It doesn’t matter if it a rouge nation state or one of our closest allies…no incursion into international space must be tolerated or else every country would start doing it. As a guy who participated in many of these things, what will happen is the sail-thru will be noted and then the diplomats at the UN, etc. can have endless meeting discussing it.

      On my way back to Houston from Shanghai where I have been the past few days on business. Most Chinese I know are fond of Americans. Of course, Communist party still is in control. But Shanghai is a vibrant, wealthy city, and everyday Chinese pay little attention to politics. They love USA TV shows and movies, KFC, McDonalds and Pizza Hut. Culturally, we are winning Chinese hearts. But dumbass in the White House and saber rattling neocons are stupidly determined to shake things up. Complete idiocy.

      Wars make more money than anything else. If you want to make a ton of money start a war .After the last depression what happened? There must be war. But this time the rich rats loose. The tares must burn. Then the new world. The children of satan will be destroyed.

      Come on, get real. Obama is simply a puppet of powerful globalists. Obama is no different than both Bushes, and Clinton. And elect anyone besides Trump (who MAY be difficult to control) and nothing will change.

      Good grief..It’s not a big deal. China has to learn that they can’t just create a land mass in the water or claim some existing island and then have that acknowledged by the rest of the world as extending China’s area of sovereignty. Nobody else is able to do that either. Rolling the ships thru there is simply a message to China that that is still international territory and that everyone has the right to travel there. Big deal. That’s not unstable. In fact, it’s something Obama should have done YEARS ago and didn’t because he wants to be all soft and non-provocative. At least when it’s outside of the Middle East! 🙂

      Chinese government having a tantrum thru their state controlled newspapers as a result is funny. Whatever. I’m pretty sure China’s smart enough not to do anything that would cause a conflict though. They know quite well that regardless of their numbers, they’d get their clocks cleaned fairly easily.
