China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a Third World War

Fast forward to 2:08: “It is puzzling to some that Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, a professor from the Chinese National Defense University, said China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third World War… Professor Xia Ming: “Zhang Zhaozhong said that not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs….” And don’t forget Russia, which recently said it is preparing to retaliate against NATO and has put radar stations on combat alert: “Russia is another ally of Iran, with similar policy to that of China. Toward Iran.” Watch, and please forward the entire video, for an explanation of how China is approaching the situation not only in Iran, but a perspective of how they view the western “threat”, as well as what tensions they face domestically.

    For those who are not familiar with General Zhang, he is not a serious military figure but a TV personaility. Because of his many wrong predictions during the 2nd Iraq war, he became a laughing stock, a Chinese version of Baghdad Bob.

    Party bosses let Zhang run his mouth to please the ego of conservative audience and give Chinese government a macho apperance. He is a tool and a clown, nothing more.

    I think that pretty much describes “Tyler Durden,” too.

    Duh, Tyler Durdan’s name is on any article posted at ZH.
    As for the clown, that’s what they said about Hitler before the war.
    The point is that the message is out, on youtube with a proper english translation.

    We should have taken on Iran 30 years ago when those f’k heads took US hostages at the US Embassy in Tehran and bombed them into the stone age every time they made a threat. Now we have the Paki’s, the Chinese, the Russians, the Uzbeks, the Afghans, the Iraqi’s, the Arab Liga, the Syrians, the Palestinians, the Germans, the Danes, the Mexicans, Hamas, Hezbollah, Opec and two dozen other crazy organizations including the Democrats and every Islamic minority living within our borders stand in our way. Good job.

    Maybe sending in those 1200 US diplomats isn’t such a bad idea after all under the current circumstances.

    I don’t think that’s true, Ron. They seem to have a whole host of contributors.

    Ron, Hitler’s dead. Not every bellicose moron is the next Hitler.

    We should have taken on Iran 30 years ago

    “We,” Kemo Sabi?

    Check it yourself, the big submitter of ZH is Tyler Durdan. Period.

    Hitler’s dead all right and we’ve learned nothing from history. Absolutely nothing.

    “We,” Kemo Sabi?

    Yes we, I would have volunteered for that job at that time.

    But that’s not what you said, Ron.

    Duh, Tyler Durdan’s name is on any article posted at ZH.

    Ron, did you, or did you not, say that?

    Yes we, I would have volunteered for that job at that time.

    Would have? If I had a dime for every time someone told me that…

    Iran’s Guards on war footing – London. Spy drone capture is US, Israel setback
    DEBKAfile Special Report December 6, 2011, 6:56 AM (GMT+02:00) Tags: Iran nuclear Iran’s Revolutionary Guards drones Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

    US stealth drone RQ-170
    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has placed the Revolutionary Guards on a war footing amid fears that the West and Israel are about to attack their nuclear program, the London Telegraph, which has good ties with British intelligence, reported early Tuesday, Dec. 6.
    Monday, DEBKAfile reported increasing indications that the Middle East is set for war, including an attack on Iran, between mid-December 2011 and mid-January 2012.
    In obedience to Khamenei’s directive to take all necessary measures to protect the regime, the Guards chief Gen. Mohammed Ali Jaafari has raised the operational readiness status of the country’s forces in preparation for external strikes and covert attacks. He ordered Iran’s arsenal of long-range Shahab missiles redistributed to secret sites around the country where they would be safe from enemy attack and could be used to launch retaliatory strikes; Guards units scattered to preset defense lines and air force “rapid reaction units” deployed after carrying out extensive exercises for responding to an enemy air attack on nuclear and strategic military targets.
    Saturday, Dec. 3, Israel’s defense minister Ehud Barak, when asked about a covert war against Iran, denied it was taking place. Twenty-hours later, this clandestine war peaked in a major coup for Iran, its capture of the sophisticated US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth reconnaissance drone. Tehran reported that, apart from slight damage, the aircraft was shot down complete with all its top-secret electronic systems in working condition.
    An American military source confirmed that Iran had the RQ-170, but added there was “absolutely no indication the drone was shot down.”
    This leads to the conclusion that the Iranians were able to control the drone from a distance (over Afghanistan) and guide it across the border to land to Iran, say DEBKAfile’s military sources. The slight damage would then apply to the wings and may have been caused when it was brought in to land by an Iranian crew unused to handling an electronic warfare craft.
    Our sources add that possession of the drone is more than just a major intelligence coup for Tehran; it has acquired an important military edge before any overt military operation has been launched. Western and Israeli war planners now have cause to fear that Iran has penetrated the heart of their most secret intelligence and electronic technological hardware for striking its nuclear infrastructure. If Tehran is capable of reaching out and guiding an American stealth drone into landing from a distance, it may also be able to control the systems of other aircraft, manned or unmanned.
    This feat recalls Hizballah’s surprise attack on an Israeli missile boat in the 2006 Lebanon war when its Chinese-made shore-to-ship C-802 missile was enabled by Iranian-manned coastal radar interference to override the ship’s advanced electronic defense systems and so put the Israeli Navy out of action within range of the Lebanese coast.

    According to an expert quoted by the Telegraph’s senior military commentator Con Coughlin, the campaign of assassinations, cyber war and sabotage of recent weeks “looks like the 21st century form of war.

    That’s one thing you can say about the Russians and the Chinese: They sure know how to bluster.

    That’s why I’m running for president in 2012. I will see their one measly retrofitted Russian carrier and raise it our U.S. carrier groups. I’ll also point out Japan’s 110 warship fleet, and then tell them what they can do about it.

    &*^$ the Chinese.

    Back Jack in 2012!

  11. Jack says:

    make that 11 U.S. carrier groups, each one armed to the tooth with bristling new fighter aircraft, cruise missiles, modern electronics, etc.

      Just reporting the news.
      We all know the superiority of the US armed forces.

      That doesn’t mean the Chinese, the Iranians or the Russians for that matter can’t throw a punch at us. They have some nasty weapons which fortunately for us come with limited range and limited accuracy. That said there is always this luck factor that I hope will remain at our side, not theirs.

      Anyhow, as I see matters we live in times that show a fast decrease in security.

      So we’re warned.

  12. Jack says:

    But you generally “report the news” like an Alarmist reports on “global warming,” Ron.

    You’re the James Hansen of “news reporting,” actually.

    Sure, any country can “throw a punch” at us, not just Russia, Iran, and China. Even a small group of Muslim fanatics can do that. See: 9/11. We have to learn to accept the fact that there is no such thing as being 100% safe.

    Anyhow, as I see matters we live in times that show a fast decrease in security.

    We have security up the wazoo, Ron. It’s stifling, it’s omnipresent, and it’s stronger than it’s ever been in peacetime. Unfortunately, it also affects our freedoms.

    More than a few countries and/or groups of lunatics have gotten in the first punch on us in the past, but they all paid a horrible price for it. I’m concerned with Iran. Because they’re NUTS. But China and Russia? Not so much. They’re a lot of things, but they ain’t NUTS.

    Do you have your period Jack or is you’re bitching a side effect of your low carb diet?

  14. Jack says:

    Listen up, my little paranoid European hand-wringer. This blog is about having dialogues, not monologues. Having discussions, etc. And I’m just not going to stand by and ignore the relentless onslaught of doomsayer proclamations that WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! Or THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING! Or WATCH OUT FOR THE CHINESE! It just gets sooooo old. You haven’t made a positive comment about anything, ever. And when I do reply to your more asinine bed-wetting rants (I avoid most of your links like I avoid deer ticks in Connecticut), all I get is wailing and gnashing of teeth. And now this.

    So if you can keep on doing this, I can keep on calling you on it. And I will.

    And if you don’t like it, you know what you can do about it, right?

    Psst.
