The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

China responds to U.S. attacks

Washington in using the virus pandemic to further demonize China in its 'hybrid war' against Beijing.  Wars don't always have to be just shooting at someone.  Information, propaganda and economic disruption (sanctions) are all tools in the US bag of tricks that are being used in the vain attempt to bust China's chops.

The constant trash talking from Washington (and its corporate media outlets) that blames China as the 'source' of the corona-virus has drawn this short but clear response. This cartoon video clearly indicates that this non-kinetic war is heating up.

In addition to the current attacks on China the Pentagon is also working overtime to put in place the infrastructure for the real deal - the physical assault on China.  Expansion of US military operations throughout the Asia-Pacific have been underway since during the Obama administration with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 'pivot' of Pentagon operations into that region.  I've seen it myself on visits to Japan, Okinawa, South Korea and Australia where US base expansions are on steroids.  Add to that the same kind of aggressive military deployments in Hawaii, Guam, Taiwan and other nations in the region.  All-in-all its clear the US is preparing for war with China and Russia.

It's obviously quite crazy for Washington to think it can take on China and Russia when in reality, after almost 20 years, the US can't even handle Afghanistan.  But the US swears by chaos theory, it is willing to destroy and create mayhem (without real victory) knowing that it can set back peaceful development in a nation (or region) for years and we all know that the military industrial complex so badly needs endless war and conflict to keep the lucrative weapons production system churning back home.

The big problem for Washington though is that China and Russia (unlike Afghanistan and many other countries that the US attacks) can fight back and have the ability to take the war to the shores of America.

But the cats running the show in Washington are desperate as they see their own nation quickly collapsing (our piss-poor handling of the virus here just one example).  They know the empire is crashing to the ground, thus the strong urge to do something - anything - to halt this declining trend which makes for a dangerous and deadly climate.
