Speaking in Hawaii yesterday, Carter (at Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore) (US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter) again called for an immediate halt to China’s land reclamation activities, which the US insists are for military purposes. He made clear that the US would continue its “freedom of navigation” operations to challenge China’s territorial claims.
“There should be no mistake about this,” Carter declared, “the United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows, as we do around the world.”
Yes we got the message. Has there ever been such arrogance. This surpasses even the aspirations of Hitler who was a mere schoolboy in comparision. Really!
Trotsky.us says it is a global crisis in capitalism and the world capitalist states are beginning now to fight each other for survival.
Every single thing is connected to this crisis and survival. It may not appear so because the truth is hidden by millions of Media words.
But we can say even by a superficial observing this fight is led by the US elites in combination with Europe, especially Britain, and they are also striking up a unity with Islam in the form of chaos -creating ISIS and with the powerful Jihadists of Khomeini Revolution Iran.
The system is both bankrupt and dangerous.
There is indeed a direct line between this posturing of US Carter against China and its actions in the Middle East where (to give only one example) Gadhafi was toppled in a situation where Gadhafi had indeed gotten control of the situation and was crushing the Jihadists, the US and Europe (with the connivance of the Stalinists in Russia and China) to eliminate Gadhafi.
In many ways those scenes of Gadhafi being sodomised by Jihadists are a central motif of our times and indeed lead directly into the barbarity of ISIS actions inIraq and Syria.
My conclusión not just the mad savages and barbarian dogs of ISIS are dangerous but the whole capitalist system is a very dangerous thing. Dangerous for humans. Dangerous for all life.
All of these things are connected because it is ONE world unitary system (of capitalism)
To the casual glance they are not connected. It requires a special science to understand their interconnectedness. This is not conspiracy. It is the opposite. It is the scientific understanding of reality.
WHY THE RETICENCE TO LEARN FROM TROTSKY SINCE THE WORLD HAS BEEN HERE BEFORE:
A capitalist system in crisis tends to drive towards war: “”Our entire planet, its land and water areas … provide today the arena for a worldwide economy…Trotsky:
“This work has been accomplished by capitalism. But capitalism also compels the capitalist states to fight in order to subordinate this world economy to the profit interests of the respective national bourgeoisies…. [T]he objective meaning of the war consists in its destroying the existing national economic nests in the name of a world economy. But imperialism is seeking to solve this task … on the principles of an exploitation of world economy by the capitalist class of that victorious country which is to be transformed by the war from a great power to a world power.”
