The situation here is still pretty psychotic.

"Although the Cold War's shadow has long since receded ..." (DOD,"2022 Nuclear Posture Review Fact Sheet, US Extended Deterrence") US America is committed to menacing the cultivation of economic and political relationships between China and Russia, specifically, and any sovereign state.

Bloomberg locked its preview of DOD's 2022 National Defense Review, posted today, 27 Oct.

Pentagon's Strategy Won't Rule Out Nuclear Use Against Non-Nuclear Threats

  • Defense strategy shuns limits on use once embraced by Biden
  • US to face both China and Russia as major nuclear powers

The Pentagon's new National Defense Strategy rejected limits on using nuclear weapons long championed by arms control advocates and in the past by President Joe Biden.

Citing burgeoning threats from China and Russia, the Defense Department said in the document released Thursday that "by the 2030s the United States will, for the first time in its history face two major nuclear powers as strategic competitors and potential adversaries." In response, the US will "maintain a very high bar for nuclear employment" without ruling out using the weapons in retaliation to a non-nuclear strategic threat to the homeland, US forces abroad or allies.  

... options for nuclear declaratory policy - including both No First Use and Sole Purpose* policies ...

*exception(alism) the sole power having the Divine right to bear nuclear arms and rule the world.

Any other sovereign state has forfeited this right as the effect of deterrence from multiple origins cannot endure, nor be defended. By declaration diplomacy is dead and the United Nations is referred to the dust bin of history. John Bolton is our prophet and the MAGA policy has been adopted as our National Interest.

Topic is worth a diary ... definitely.

A self-declaration of being a fascist, terror state. My diary exactly one-year ahead of the barbaric assault on the Capitol, the symbol of presumed Democracy in the New World.

US Aims to Destroy Economies of Competitors

Pentagon thinks China is the biggest threat | Der Zeit |

Despite "serious threats" from Russia, the United States considers China to be the greatest threat. This is evident, for example, in the rhetoric of the Chinese leadership towards Taiwan.

The US armed forces continue to see China as the greatest security challenge. This emerges from the new US National Defense Strategy released by the Pentagon.

It states that Russia poses "serious threats to important US national interests both abroad and at home". This is made clear, among other things, by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What is needed is a "robust deterrent" against Russia.

The greatest challenge, however, has been China's "compulsive and increasingly aggressive effort to reshape the Indo-Pacific region and the international system to suit its interests and authoritarian preferences."

This is also justified with the rhetoric of the Chinese leadership towards Taiwan. The government in Beijing regards the island as a breakaway province that should be reunited with the mainland - if necessary with military force.

Nuclear Deterrence: A Guarantee or Threat to Strategic Stability? | Carnegie Endowment for Peace - March 2019 |


The United States' withdrawal from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and the growing likelihood of the termination of the 2010 New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) are returning U.S.-Russia nuclear issues to the forefront of discussions on international security and geopolitics.

In these discussions, it is difficult to find concepts that are more commonly used--and abused--than strategic stability and nuclear deterrence. Both concepts have a long history. The former has been in official use for nearly thirty years, while the latter has been around for almost seventy. They appear in many state documents and international agreements. Entire libraries of academic literature and propaganda have been written about them, not to mention the reams devoted to both concepts on the Internet, along with oceans of words at countless conferences and symposiums.

Nevertheless, these concepts, their dynamics, and their dialectical interrelationship create new problems time and again. They give rise to paradoxes that, were it not a life-and-death matter for modern civilization, could be considered intellectually fascinating. But, unfortunately, these concepts concern actual matters of life and death. In the current military and political environment, it is no longer inconceivable that war between the United States and Russia could break out in just a few days in the event of a crisis. Such a conflict might culminate with an exchange of nuclear strikes taking as long as just a few hours.

During those hours, hundreds of millions of people in the northern hemisphere would be killed, and everything created by human civilization in the last thousand years would be destroyed. The direct effects would be irreversible, and the secondary effects would likely kill the rest of the world's population within a number of years, or at least send the remaining population back into a prehistoric existence. The prevention of nuclear war is an indispensable condition for the survival of human civilization, and it is inextricably linked to the concepts of nuclear deterrence, strategic stability, nuclear disarmament, and nonproliferation.

After thirty years of major reductions in nuclear arsenals to strengthen strategic stability, why are Russia and the United States further diverging in their understandings of the principles of stability? For what reasons, after so many years of joint efforts by the two powers to eliminate incentives for a nuclear first strike against the other, is such a scenario more likely today than at any point over the past thirty years? How is it that, after three decades of successful negotiations on the reduction and nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, the world is entering a period of disintegration when it comes to the entire system of control over these weapons?

The Neutron Bomb | Oct. 30, 2017 |

The neutron bomb controversy exploded suddenly into public notice June 6, 1977, with a headline in The Washington Post: "Neutron Killer Warhead Buried in ERDA Budget." ERDA, the Energy Research and Development Administration, was the US agency responsible for developing nuclear weapons.

The Post front page article--the first of many by reporter Walter Pincus--charged that "the United States is about to begin production of its first nuclear battlefield weapon specifically designed to kill people through the release of neutrons rather than to destroy military installations through heat and blast."

Others quickly joined the chase. The New York Times reported that "the nuclear weaponeers have unfolded a new brainchild, the neutron bomb, which will kill people while preserving buildings, tanks, and artillery."

The uproar over the neutron bomb is largely forgotten today but it was in the news almost constantly in 1977-78 and again in 1981, a blazing international issue that drew in top leaders from the United States, Europe, and the Soviet Union.

Nuclear battlefield weapons

After almost a year of waffling and indecision, US President Jimmy Carter decided in April 1978 to defer production of the neutron bomb, although he did not cancel the program outright. President Ronald Reagan reopened the question in 1981, eventually electing to produce neutron weapons but to keep them in storage.

"Neutron bomb" was the popular term for the Enhanced Radiation Weapon (ERW), a small hydrogen warhead for short-range US Army rockets and artillery shells. It was intended to replace existing nuclear warheads--atomic rather than hydrogen devices--already deployed on battlefield weapons in Europe.

"Worlds Apart" is one of two English-language interview programs still broadcast by RT. I tuned in only to find Master of US American Cliché and Pubic Intellectual, Norman Solomon, a prolific essayist, a frequent "contributor" to webzine daily publishers, The Nation and Counterpunch among others, and self-styled exec director of the "Institute for Public Accuracy"  the guest of this week's segment titled "Win or Die Trying" (25 Oct). The last piece of work carrying his by-line that I read c. 2014 at Counterpunch or anywhere else was an ill-conceived discursion on derogatory connations of the word "negro."
OKSANA BOYKO: You know, I was looking through some of the letters Nikita Khrushchev and John F. Kennedy echanged at that time, and I was struck by the sense of shared responsibility that were in those letters. For example, President Kennedy stressed that the United States is very interested in diffusing tensions and limiting the arms race. General Secretary Khrushchev was calling for state wisdom and suggesting that both sides need to resist escalatory dynamics. Do you think that mutual sense of both impeding danger and shared duty is present today?

NORMAN SOLOMON: Well, one of the most disturbing aspects of what we're facing now here in the autumn of 2022 is the absence of exchange of information [FALSE] and eny semblance of authentic diplomatic dialogue. There are great differences of opinion. I have great differencees of opinion with  RT, for example [SIMILE SUICIDE], and yet I think that some discussion about the over-arching dangers of nuclear war are absolutely crucial, because—let me just step back for a moment in terms of over all perspective—the best scientific information says that a thermo-nuclear exchange for instance between United States and Russia would result in nuclear winter as it's been called and as a consequence ninety-nine perceent of the the human beings on this planet would die within a year. So if we step back and we say only one percent of the human beings on this planet would be alive after a few months after a nuclear exchange that helps us put in perspective what is at stake right now. And so, when we hear talk, loose talk, coming from the Kremilin about use of nuclear weapons, that is absolutely abhorrent. And I say this as somebody who has worked very strongly for decades now to oppose US militarism [FALSE] and to oppose the escalation of nuclear war. And so, for Vladimir Putin to say that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are precedents is an absolutely unhinged and extremely dangerous statement to make.

BOYKO: Those were the precedents of the United States using nuclear weapons, the only country in history to do that. And when you say Putin is ...

SOLOMON: No. So what does that mean?
That means that the United States is on record of using nuclear weapons. What you describe as his "loose talk"—he never said, let's bomb K*v or Washington. He said that Russia, if pressed, will use nuclear weapons to defend its security interests and existence.

SOLOMON: Well, that's established doctrine. But also to say in this current crisis that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are precedents for using nuclear weapons ...
Do we want to say the Third Reich is a precedent? ...

At this point, 05:28. I tuned out.

The synopsis of this interview of US Boomer Recovered Memories reads:
The 60th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, which comes this month, might once have been notable only to specialist historians. However, the renewed confrontation between Moscow and Washington over Ukraine has brought it into wider focus. With the threat of nuclear strikes returning to the public consciousness, is there anything we can still learn from how the two countries dealt with their potentially apocalyptic animosity in 1962?

After Hiroshima Terror is What Bombing Is For | by Captain Future on Aug 7th, 2006 |  

On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atomic bomb used in warfare. Three days later, President Truman began a pattern of lies that characterized the nuclear age.

Norman Solomon recently reminds us, the immense explosion at Hiroshima was followed by an immense lie. On August 9th, President Truman told the Amercan people:

"The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, in so far as possible, the killing of civilians."

Truman's was the first of many lies of the nuclear era, including the initial lies about the effects of radiation. Some 75,000 people died in Hiroshima from the blast and fire of the Bomb. Five years later, radiation effects more than doubled the dead, to some 200,000. The vast majority of those who died from the Nagasaki bomb were from radiation, months and years later.

But the biggest lie is not about the atomic bomb, but the very practice of bombing.

The facts show (as described in Sven Lindqvist's A History of Bombing and Gerard DeGroot's The Bomb: A Life, among other works) that the effect of bombing cities is not a strategy of war but a strategy of terror, and that it doesn't work.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin's Regular Press Conference on October 28, 2022
AFP: The Saudi Foreign Minister and Mr. Wang Yi had an online meeting yesterday. According to a video footage from the meeting, the Saudi Foreign Minister said his country is preparing for a visit of President Xi Jinping very soon. Can you confirm such a visit is planned and do you have more details on this?
Wang Wenbin: With regard to your question, I have no information to offer at this moment.
Follow-up: So you don't deny it? You don't deny the report?
Wang Wenbin: I already gave my answer. 
AFP: Elon Musk took control of Twitter and fired its top executives today. As many Chinese diplomats and the foreign ministry use Twitter, how do you see the move?
Wang Wenbin: We know that it's not just Chinese diplomats who use Twitter. We have no comment on the business activity.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mao Ning's Regular Press Conference on October 27, 2022
AFP: A question about the allegations of Chinese illegal police stations overseas. I know that your colleague yesterday already made a comment about the Netherlands specifically, but since more reports have emerged worldwide of illegal Chinese police stations, including in Canada and Ireland, I would like to know if you can confirm that China has any police operations in Canada, and if so, are local authorities aware of that?
Mao Ning: My colleague has indeed answered a similar question yesterday. If you would like to know more, I would refer you to the competent authorities...
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin's Regular Press Conference on October 26, 2022
Reuters: The United States, Japan[,] and South Korea warned on Wednesday that if North Korea conducts a seventh nuclear bomb test, that would warrant an unparalleled response. My first question is, does the foreign ministry have any comment on this warning to North Korea? Second, does the foreign ministry share the concerns of the US and its allies that North Korea could be about to resume nuclear bomb testing for the first time since 2017?
Wang Wenbin: We hope the parties concerned will face squarely the root cause and timeline of events of the protracted impasse on the Korean Peninsula and do more to enhance mutual trust and address parties' concerns in a balanced way. 
AFP: According to the White House website, US President Biden spoke with the UK's new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak yesterday, and the two sides agreed to address the challenges posed by China together. Do you have any comment on this?
Wang Wenbin: China is a development partner and an opportunity for other countries, not a threat or challenge. We urge the US to abandon the zero-sum mentality and embrace the trend of our times. Instead of propagating the obsolete "China threat" theory and piecing together small blocs that are bound to fail, the US might as well try to adopt a new vision featuring openness, inclusiveness and win-win cooperation[,] and do more to contribute to a more peaceful and prosperous world. 
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin's Regular Press Conference on October 25, 2022
Bloomberg: US officials say they are still working to set up a meeting between President Joe Biden and General Secretary Xi Jinping. My question is, what is the possibility of a call or a meeting taking place between the two leaders? 
Wang Wenbin: I have no information to offer on your question at the moment.

Clash of Christianities: Why Europe cannot understand Russia | The Cradle - April 29, 2022 |

By Pepe Escobar

Western Europeans see the Orthodox and eastern Christians as satraps and a bunch of smugglers, while the Orthodox regard the Crusaders as barbarian usurpers bent on world conquest.

Under an ubiquitous, toxic atmosphere of cognitive dissonance drenched in Russophobia, it's absolutely impossible to have a meaningful discussion on finer points of Russian history and culture across the NATO space - a phenomenon I'm experiencing back in Paris right now, fresh from a long stint in Istanbul.

At best, in a semblance of civilized dialogue, Russia is pigeonholed in the reductionist view of a threatening, irrational, ever-expanding empire - a way more wicked version of Ancient Rome, Achaemenid Persia, Ottoman Turkey or Mughal India.

The fall of the USSR a little over three decades ago did hurl Russia back three centuries - to its borders in the 17th century. Russia, historically, had been interpreted as a secular empire - immense, multiple and multinational. This is all informed by history, very much alive even today in the Russian collective unconscious.

When Operation Z started I was in Istanbul - the Second Rome. I spent a considerable time of my late night walks around Hagia Sophia reflecting on the historical correlations of the Second Rome with the Third Rome - which happens to be Moscow, since the concept was first enounced at the start of the 16th century.

Later, back in Paris, banishment to soliloquy territory seemed inevitable until an academic pointed me to some substance, although heavily distorted by political correctness, available in the French magazine Historia.

There's at least an attempt to discuss the Third Rome. The significance of the concept was initially religious before becoming political - encapsulating the Russian drive to become the leader of the Orthodox world in contrast with Catholicism. This has to be understood also in the context of pan-Slavic theories springing up under the first Romanov and then reaching their apogee in the 19th century.

Eurasianism - and its several declinations - treats the complex Russian identity as double-faced, between east and west. Western liberal democracies simply can't understand that these ideas - infusing varied brands of Russian nationalism - do not imply hostility to "enlightened" Europe, but an affirmation of Difference (they could learn a bit from reading more Gilles Deleuze for that matter). Eurasianism also weighs on closer relations with Central Asia and necessary alliances, in various degrees, with China and Turkey.

Catholic Groups Call on Pres. Biden to Reject Nuclear War

Not since the Cuban Missile Crisis has the existential threat of nuclear war been so acute. As Catholics, we know that the possession of these weapons, even for deterrence, is immoral, because it offers only a false security based on a "balance of terror," because the production of nuclear weapons wastes resources that could benefit the integral development of peoples and the natural environment, and because the mere presence of these weapons means the real and constant possibility of their use. The catastrophic consequences of nuclear war would be disproportionate to any good that might be intended.

Last year, we applauded your joint statement with Mr. Putin, reaffirming Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev's declaration that "a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought." While Mr. Putin has undermined that message in a particularly grievous manner with his recent threats, both the United States and Russia continue to include even first-strike nuclear attacks in their security strategies, and spend hundreds of billions of dollars preparing for nuclear war. We hope that now, as the possibility of nuclear war looms closer than it has in decades, the truth that such a war cannot be won and must never be fought will guide your actions.

On the other hand, we have an inkling of a new and more just world order in the making by China's New Silk Road Initiative, formerly known as the One Belt, One Road and commonly named the Belt and Road Initiative. If mankind is to survive, we have to bury the old paradigm of geopolitics, that brought us two World Wars and threatens us today with the deadly prospect of a final one - the thermonuclear annihilation of civilization.
