Why are China and Russia both suddenly so concerned about mobilizing troops? What we are witnessing right now is unlike anything that we have seen since World War II. The Russians are mobilizing hundreds of thousands of fresh troops as they prepare for a new offensive in Ukraine, and meanwhile NATO countries are getting ready to send heavy tanks to the Ukrainians for the first time since the war started.
But why have the Chinese decided that a nationwide mobilization may soon be necessary? Is China expecting a war? It is being reported that anyone in China that is “18 years or older” could potentially be subject to mobilization under a brand-new law which will go into effect next month.
The Chinese are laying the groundwork for a massive nationwide mobilization of young people.
But why would they need to do that?
Nobody is going to invade China.
So why would they be going to war?
Needless to say, the answer is obvious.
The only reason why China would be involved in a major war is if they decide to invade Taiwan, and that may happen a lot sooner than many of the “experts” had been anticipating.
The moment that an invasion of Taiwan begins, the United States and China will be in a state of war.
And that will mean that the flow of goods from China will immediately stop.
Most Americans simply do not understand what that would mean. For example, our healthcare industry would instantly be thrown into a state of complete and utter chaos…
A terrifying percentage of America’s active pharmaceutical ingredients are made in China, according to Republican Senator Tom Cotton. That includes 95% of imports of ibuprofen, 70% of acetaminophen and up to 45% of the imported penicillin supply.
What would happen if China simply turned that supply off? They could.
There are thousands upon thousands of other things that are manufactured in China that Americans use on a daily basis that we wouldn’t be able to get anymore.
In other words, we would be in a world of hurt.
And once Taiwan is under attack, the factories that are located there wouldn’t be able to supply us with any more microchips, and that would deeply affect virtually every single industry in the entire country…
Taiwan, the object of China’s short-term expansion strategy, produces most of the world’s microchips. A Chinese invasion would threaten America’s supply of semiconductors, which are needed to run everything from cars to refrigerators.
If China invades Taiwan, it truly will be a nightmare scenario for the entire globe.
So our leaders should be doing all they can to find a peaceful solution.
But now the “Chinese spy balloon” saga has our leaders in Washington angrier with the Chinese than ever.

Elsewhere, the Russians have already been mobilizing hundreds of thousands of new troops, and it appears that they are poised to make a really big move. The following comes from an article posted on Yahoo News entitled “Vladimir Putin is about to make shock gains”…
Ukrainian defence minister Oleksii Reznikov says Russia has mobilized “much more” than 300,000 troops, perhaps up to half a million, and these are pouring into Ukraine in preparation for what is expected to be a major offensive in the coming days and weeks. Although Kyiv has also been building up its forces and supplying them with modern equipment donated by the West, Putin has a much greater advantage in troop numbers than he did when he invaded a year ago. Despite repeated optimistic reports of Russia running low on artillery shells – a battle winner in this conflict – Putin’s war stocks are vast, and his factories have been working around the clock to churn out even more.
Of course, the Russians have already been making gains on a daily basis. After months of telling us that “Ukraine is winning”, even publications such as the Wall Street Journal are now being forced to admit that the Russians are on the move “on five fronts in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions”…
Russian forces launched several attacks in eastern Ukraine, pushing for a breakthrough on the battlefield ahead of the delivery of new Western weapons, although the U.K. cast doubt on the prospects for a major Russian offensive.
The General Staff of Ukraine’s armed forces said Russia was regrouping and attacking on five fronts in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as part of a wider offensive anticipated by Kyiv and its Western allies.
If the Russians start gobbling up huge chunks of new territory in Ukraine, there will inevitably be a very strong response from the western powers.
And that will bring us even closer to nuclear war.
The Russians can see the writing on the wall, and so they are starting to fix up bomb shelters all over the nation…
Bomb shelters across Russia are undergoing systematic inspections and repairs following a Kremlin order to upgrade the country’s crumbling Soviet-era infrastructure, according to current and former officials who spoke to The Moscow Times.
Many of Russia’s thousands of bunkers, reinforced cellars and other safe hideouts have been mothballed for decades. But as the war in Ukraine drags on, local authorities appear to be spending hundreds of millions of rubles to again make them fit for habitation.
The Russians have thousands upon thousands of bomb shelters that could be used in the event of a nuclear conflict.
So, what do we have for our own citizens?
If you live in a targeted area when the nukes start flying, you will want to say your prayers because your time will be up. The Daily Mail just recently posted an article “Would YOUR neighborhood be targeted in a nuclear conflict? Official map shows the 2,000 locations across the US most at risk” It shows a map of the most dangerous areas to live in the event of a nuclear war you can might want to check out here.
Thanks to our very foolish leaders, we could soon find ourselves fighting Russia and China simultaneously.
Sadly, most Americans have absolutely no idea that we are racing toward oblivion.
Most people just assume that our leaders know exactly what they are doing and that they have everything under control.
Unfortunately, the truth is that they have no idea what they are doing, and I believe that this will become exceedingly clear as 2023 rolls along.
