“Asians Want to Do Business; the U.S. Government is ‘War, War, War'”


Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in Beijing. 

JAMES BRADLEY,    Bradley is author of several bestsellers focused on U.S. policy in the Pacific and Asia, including The Imperial Cruise: A Secret History of Empire and War. He is perhaps most well known for Flags of Our Fathers.
His book The China Mirage: The Hidden History of American Disaster in Asia (see NPR report on that book) tracks the rise of the “war lobby” that attempted to convince the U.S. public that the Chinese people wanted Chiang Kai-shek and that China could be Christianized during the FDR administration. “Of course, Mao Zedong would resoundingly defeat the forces of Chiang Kai-shek, but the war lobby would raise millions propagandizing the U.S. public and U.S. government helped fund the whole thing.“Today, Asians want to do business; the U.S. government is ‘war, war, war.’ My daughter lives in Taipei and will be visiting. From her point of view, unification will mean the color of her passport would change. East Asians don’t want a Ukraine war here.

“Certainly, using a number of means, the U.S. government can coerce different governments to build more bases — the Philippines, Japan and so on. But there’s no public desire for this.

“The U.S. government strategy, articulated by Zbigniew Brzezinski and now pushed by Victoria Nuland, Antony Blinken and Jake Sulivan, is to break up Halford Mackinder’s big island. They will use whatever means they can to prevent strong bonds throughout Asia.”

Seymour Hersh recently wrote: “Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman has resigned, and her last day in office is June 30. Her departure has triggered near panic inside the State Department about the person many there fear will be chosen to replace her: Victoria Nuland. Nuland’s hawkishness on Russia and antipathy for Vladimir Putin fits perfectly with the views of President Biden. Nuland is now the undersecretary for political affairs and has been described as ‘running amok,’ in the words of a person with direct knowledge of the situation, among the various bureaus of the State Department while Secretary of State Antony Blinken is on the road.”
