China Claims America Is ‘Real Threat to the World’ Amid Russian Invasion of Ukraine
March 1, 2022 — Breitbart.com reports: “Despite much being made of China’s apparent lack of support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the communist state’s true colours have been shown by one of its chief diplomats declaring that the world should remember that the ‘real threat’ is the United States of America.
Questions are currently swirling in the Western press as to the current state of Moscow’s relationship with Beijing (Peking).
Observers were surprised over the weekend, for example, that China refused to vote against a resolution condemning Russia’s ‘aggression’ against Ukraine, opting instead to abstain from the vote. Yet the move was merely symbolic, as the vote was doomed regardless due to Russia having a permanent seat of the council and therefore has the ability to veto any such motion.
The Ukraine invasion has put the Chinese Communist Party in a tough position, however, as it would be difficult for Beijing to back Russia’s support of the ‘separatist’ movements in the Donbas region without undermining their regime’s longstanding policy of violently cracking down on so-called ‘separatist’ movements in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and Tibet…” (China will become a basic partner with Russia for the rapidly approaching battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Russia will lead invasion number one – Ezekiel 38 & 39. China will lead invasion number two – Revelation 16:12; Revelation 9:14 – 16. Then all nations will come against Jerusalem for the final invasion at which point Jesus will return to stop the bloodshed and set up his eternal kingdom upon earth – [He gathers] all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken… Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south – Zechariah 14:2 – 4. Then Psalm 2:6 occurs as God the Father says: …I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion [Jerusalem]. See the next three reports)
US expresses ‘deep concerns’ on Russia-China ‘alignment’
March 15, 2022 — SpaceWar.com reports: “The United States expressed concern Monday about ‘alignment’ between Russia and China, after high-ranking US and Chinese officials met for seven hours on the Ukraine war and other security issues.
‘We do have deep concerns about China’s alignment with Russia,’ a senior US official told reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity, adding: ‘It was a very candid conversation.’
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Yang Jiechi, the Chinese Communist Party’s chief diplomat, met in a Rome hotel for what a White House readout described as a ‘substantial’ session.
The White House said the two officials also ‘underscored the importance of maintaining open lines of communication between the United States and China.’
Moscow and Beijing have drawn closer in what Washington sees as an increasingly hostile alliance of the authoritarian nuclear powers…”
Pressure builds on China to drop its Russian ally
March 16, 2022 — SpaceWar.com reports: “China is under intense diplomatic pressure from the US and its European allies to pull its lifeline from an isolated Russia but, three weeks after the invasion of Ukraine, Beijing has shown few signs of abandoning its friends in the Kremlin.
Washington has driven Russia to the cusp of default since Vladimir Putin’s invasion of neighbouring Ukraine, strangling its economy with sanctions and pulling the country from the global payments system.
Isolated, bleeding money and with its currency in freefall, Russia has grasped for the friendship of its giant southwestern ally — China.
And China appears to have reciprocated, despite the risks to its both reputation and its economic interests as the US-led sanctions unwind.
A senior US official on Monday voiced ‘deep concerns about China’s alignment with Russia’ following talks in Rome between US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Yang Jiechi, the Chinese Communist Party’s chief diplomat…”
U.S. Admiral: Beijing Armed South China Sea Islands in ‘Largest Military Buildup Since WWII’
March 22, 2022 — Breitbart.com reports: “U.S. Indo-Pacific commander Adm. John C. Aquilino told the Associated Press in an interview published on Sunday that China had fully militarized three artificial islands built in the territory of the Philippines as part of ‘the largest military buildup since World War II.’
The three artificial islands were built on Mischief Reef, Subi Reef, and Fiery Cross Reef, territories belonging to the Spratly Islands, an archipelago legally under the territory of the Philippines.
China’s presence on the islands is illegal regardless of the nature of its construction there. China claims nearly the entirety of the South China Sea, including territory belonging to the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Brunei, as well as waters off the coast of Indonesia. In 2016, the Philippines won a lawsuit against China at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague in which the court ruled that China had no legal right to be present in the disputed territories, including the three reefs Aquilino discussed this weekend…”
South Korea Fires Warning Shots at North Korean Vessel That Crossed Border
March 8, 2022 — Voice of America News reports: “South Korea’s military fired warning shots at a North Korean patrol boat that crossed the de facto inter-Korean sea border off the peninsula’s west coast, South Korea’s military reported Tuesday.
The skirmish occurred as South Korean authorities detained another North Korean vessel that had also crossed the so-called Northern Limit Line (NLL), according to a statement from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The North Korean patrol boat, which was pursuing the first vessel, retreated after South Korea’s military fired warning shots, the statement added.
South Korea’s military detained the other vessel and brought it to nearby Baekryeong Island. South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that six of the seven crew members were wearing military uniforms…” (North Korea marches with Russia and China for the war of the latter years and latter days – Ezekiel 38:8, 16.
