Secretary of Defense James Mattis has announced a strategic alliance with India that was largely ignored by the mainstream media – because most foreign policy “experts” don’t understand what just happened. The liberal media and the foreign policy intelligentsia are fixated on Russia due to the hatred of President Trump.
At the same time, the experts are blinded to the very real threat that China’s increasing militarization poses to the world. Fortunately for America and many of the world’s democracies, Trump and Mattis are ignoring the experts.
China is perhaps one of the greatest threats to world peace at this time, aside from the third great expansion of the Islamic Caliphate. Trump sees these threats and is acting on them, while the Old World Order screams and pulls its hair out.
Starting in Europe, Trump correctly asked what the purpose of NATO is today for America. In the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created to stem the tide of Soviet aggression. In 2018, the Soviet Union has been gone for some 27 years. It no longer exists. Russia today is not the Soviet Union of the Cold War.
So, why is America still footing most of the bill for NATO? More importantly, why is America not striving for better relations with Russia, which clearly wants to normalize relations with America as an ally?
If NATO’s purpose was to stem the tide of communism into Europe, what is it doing today?
Africa is a mess today because of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, yet the foreign policy “experts” can’t even see what they did there. Obama and his former Secretary of State armed jihadi groups in Egypt, Syria and Libya in order to destabilize those countries. After taking out Gaddafi in Libya, the jihadis took the flood of Obama/Hillary guns that had flowed into Benghazi and took their show on the road.
Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Chad, northern Nigeria and Cameroon have all been destabilized by Islamic terrorism, primarily Al Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram. Central African Republic, with an 80% Christian majority, is now a failed state due to ongoing fighting with jihadis. It’s a big mystery to our foreign policy experts how this all started happening right after Hillary’s disastrous Benghazi bungle.
Which brings us to the map of Asia and the very real, very big threat that is Communist China. The Chinese are occupying uninhabited islands in the South China Sea and loading them up with radar, armaments, naval stations and more. They are a threat to shipping in the entire region and clearly want to be seen that way. With the current buildup, it’s only a matter of time before they get tired of flexing their military muscle and start using it.
And that brings us to Trump and Mattis’ new agreement with India. Under the terms of the newly-announced deal, India will be allowed to buy advanced American weaponry and the two nations will begin sharing military intelligence and sensitive technology. India also happens to be a nuclear power, right on China’s doorstep.
While India is still struggling as a largely dysfunctional nation, it wants to be a world player when it comes to trade and advancing its economy. If India succeeds in building up its own manufacturing base, shipping will become vital to its growth. India is clearly looking forward and seeing China’s control of the waterways on that side of the world as a threat. The media outlets that have bothered to even cover the new alliance with India all fail to recognize the elephant in the room, which is China.
Taking a step back and looking at the map, you can see for yourself what Trump’s pivot to Asia is accomplishing. India has China boxed in to the west. A billion-man army is not quite as intimidating if your next-door neighbor also has a billion-man army and some nukes. Far to the south, Australia is a strong American ally in the region.
To the east, we have Japan and soon, possibly a unified Korea. If President Trump succeeds in draining the swamp and normalizes relations with Russia, China is boxed in to the north. The Communist ruling party in Beijing’s dreams of global conquest won’t look so attainable if the nation is completely contained in a Trump-orchestrated box.
Just as NATO once served a purpose of containing the Soviet Union, Trump is remaking the map to contain China. He’s playing the long game, just as China is, while his enemies are too blind to look at a map and figure out what’s going on.
