China and Russia Launch Joint Military Operation On Anniversary Of 9/11

Published

on

On the infamous date, September 11, China and Russia have decided to display their military partnership to the world by taking part in a five-day strategic operation entitled Vostok 2018, in Vladivostok, Russia. Inspired by U.S. military strategy In Desert Storm and Desert Shield, China is steadily upgrading its military. It is estimated that China’s marine corps has grown by 20,000. In addition, China has added a nuclear component to its air force.

The Trump administration’s economic strategy with China may be an indirect response to Chinese military coercion in Asia. To the dismay of free-market economists, and iPhone lovers, The Trump administration is posturing for further tariffs on nearly all Chinese imports. China threatens that it will counter with new tariffs on U.S. goods. However, the West may have to keep their eye on the big picture, the expansion of the Chinese military.

The combination of increased military and operational posturing with Russia poses a red flag to foreign companies doing business in China. In addition, China has shown lack of willingness in abiding by international law. China has constructed of militarized islands complete with ports and cities in waters in or near maritime waters belonging to U.S. allies, Japan and the Philippines.

On land and sea, China has successfully encroached on foreign territories, claiming historical jurisdiction. These claims are either false or ancient, with no basis on current treaties. Recently, China has threatened to attack the Vietnamese for continued to development of natural gas drilling in waters near false Chinese claims. In addition, China has attempted to force the Philippines into partnership on gas and oil projects that were ruled to be in Philippine waters. Near the Indian border with Bhutan, China has trespassed, attempting to construct roads, sparking reaction from Bhutan and India. On cybertheft, the Chinese have stolen design components related to U.S. missile navigation systems, antiaircraft, and submarine technology.

As with the U.S., the E.U. believes that China must promote greater access to their markets. However, the E.U. wishes to rely on organizations like the World Trade Organization to reduce steel capacities and subsidies instead of tariffs. Perhaps the E.U. will act with greater urgency if Chinese military expands threat to European alliances and trade routes in Asia, or if China increases its cyber-espionage and intellectual piracy in the E.U.

The State Department has been meeting with partners and allies in East Asia, the Indian Ocean, and the West Pacific to assure and affirm international rules. The Department of Defense realizes that China is among the top military and economic threats going forward.

Published

on

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
