Keep Your Eyes on the East - Update

Top Chinese general warns US over attack

China is prepared to use nuclear weapons against the US if it is attacked by Washington during a confrontation over Taiwan, a Chinese general said on Thursday.

“If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition on to the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons,” said General Zhu Chenghu.

Gen Zhu was speaking at a function for foreign journalists organised, in part, by the Chinese government. He added that China's definition of its territory included warships and aircraft.

“If the Americans are determined to interfere [then] we will be determined to respond,” said Gen Zhu, who is also a professor at China's National Defence University.

“We . . . will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the cities east of Xian. Of course the Americans will have to be prepared that hundreds . . . of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese.”


As I posted here,here there IS a growing threat in the Russian/China alliance and how the "trigger" will be Taiwan, as the US has promised to defend Taiwan against Chinese agression.

China has been building their military at an alarming rate as noted here, and with the New World Order agreement signed with Russia, the "stage" is now set.

The agreement, which didn't get any US press shows Russia and China's growing concern and resentment at what they feel is US predominance in World Affairs - the role of the US being the ONLY superpower has really got them in an uproar, and they are planning ways to lessen it.

The problem we face of course is the fact that with our military involved in the "new war" model of "Global Terror", a Russian and China alliance brings back the traditional "Cold War" model into play. With our current committments we would be hard pressed to go toe-to-toe with China at this point, or even leverage our position.

This delcaration by General Zu, is a "line in the sand", basically telling us, we're not afraid of you and will destroy you if we have to. Some have dismissed this as the ramblings of a 'mad-man', or "his opinion", as well as citing that it isn't very likely that China will attack Taiwan anytime soon. Let me call that "Whistling in the Dark", we need to wake up. The build up is continuing and we MUST keep our eyes on the Dragon, as well as the Bear.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
