US Preparations For War

Pentagon Report Points To US Preparations For Total War
 
 
Over the past two weeks, with next to no media coverage, the United States has moved substantially closer toward open military confrontation with both Russia and China, the second- and third-ranked nuclear powers in the world.
 
On October 3, the United States threatened, for the first time since the Cold War, to directly attack the Russian homeland. 
 
UN Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison accused the country of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty by developing a nuclear cruise missile and said that Washington was preparing to "take out" the weapon with a US strike.
 
This statement came just three days after a Chinese warship set a collision course with a US destroyer carrying out a so-called "freedom of navigation" operation in the South China Sea, forcing the American ship to maneuver to avoid a collision and the potentially deadliest military clash in the Pacific in decades.
 
Behind such hair-raising incidents, the United States is undertaking serious, long-term preparations to restructure the American economy to fight a major war with a "peer" adversary, entailing radical changes to American economic, social and political life.
 
This is the essential content of a 146-page document released by the Pentagon last Friday, titled "Assessing and Strengthening the Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base and Supply Chain Resiliency of the United States."
 
It makes it clear that Washington is preparing not just for isolated regional clashes, but rather for a massive, long-term war effort against Russia and China under conditions of potential national autarchy.
 
The document made clear that a major restructuring of the American economy will be necessary to reach the United States military's stated goal of being prepared to "fight tonight" against a "peer adversary." 
 
The United States must "retool" for "great-power competition," the document declared.
 
"America's manufacturing and defense industrial base," observes the report creates the "platform and systems" upon which "our Warfighter depends." 
 
This complex encompasses not just the government, but the private sector, as well as "R&D organizations" and "academic institutions." In other words, the entire economy and society.
 
It warns that "The erosion of American manufacturing over the last two decades… threatens to undermine the ability of U.S. manufacturers to meet national security requirements. 
 
Today, we rely on single domestic sources for some products and foreign supply chains for others, and we face the possibility of not being able to produce specialized components for the military at home."
 
Correcting this strategic deficiency, the report concludes, means that "support for a vibrant domestic manufacturing sector, a solid defense industrial base, and resilient supply chains is a national priority."
 
The report squarely targets China, declaring, "China's economic strategies, combined with the adverse impacts of other nations' industrial policies, pose significant threats to the U.S. industrial base and thereby pose a growing risk to U.S. national security."
 
The promotion of US manufacturing dominance, in other words, is vital for promoting military dominance.
 
The protection of heavy industry goes together with the administration's efforts to defend America's high-tech sector, the source of a vast portion of US profitability.
 
As the report notes, "One of the Chinese Communist Party's primary industrial initiatives, Made in China 2025, targets artificial intelligence, quantum computing, robotics, autonomous and new energy vehicles, high-performance medical devices, high-tech ship components, and other emerging industries critical to national defense."
 
It warns that "Chinese R&D spending is rapidly converging to that of the U.S. and will likely achieve parity sometime in the near future," and worriedly points to the fact that the Chinese manufacturer DJI dominates the commercial aerial drone market.
 
The Pentagon's plans for protecting and expanding the US high-tech sector include its backing for the administration's efforts to limit the admission of Chinese students to US universities through visa restrictions.
 
The report complains that, with as many as 25 percent of "STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics] graduates in the U.S. being Chinese nationals… American universities are major enablers of China's economic and military rise."
 
The vision in the document, in other words, is the concrete expression of the conception outlined in the latest US national security strategy, calling for "the seamless integration of multiple elements of national power-diplomacy, information, economics, finance, intelligence, law enforcement and military."

[1] Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
[2] And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
[3] And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
[4] What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?
[5] And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:
[6] And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
[7] For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
[8] Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
[9] In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.
[10] Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.
[11] Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!
[12] And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.
[13] Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
[14] Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
[15] And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
[16] But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
[17] Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.
[18] Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
[19] That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
[20] Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
[21] Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
[22] Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
[23] Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
[24] Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
[25] Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
[26] And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
[27] None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
[28] Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
[29] Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
[30] And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

Isaiah 5 a Judgement that can be applied to USA if we insist on producing more bitter fruit
