Study: China World’s Most Powerful Nation
April 7, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “A new study on the economic power of the world’s nations has named China as the ‘most powerful nation’ on its ‘world market power’ index.
The report was issued by Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) as part of its Emerging and Growth-Leading Economies (EAGLEs) research project tracking the world’s leading nations.
BBVA feels that China has the most influence on the world’s economies.
‘China shows the highest value not only among emerging economies but also when considering all the sample, inverting with the US the rank order given by the exports’ share in nominal terms,’ the report reads.
In fact, BBVA ranks China quite a bit higher on its world market power index than any other nation, including the USA…” (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].”
China eyes ‘global monitoring network’ of surveillance satellites
April 3, 2014 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “To compensate the frustration over the endless search for missing the Malaysian airliner, Chinese scientists have doubled efforts to promote their project of a huge satellites network, which will enable Beijing to monitor the whole world.
As the mission to find the passenger jet MH370 which disappeared off the radars on March 8 with 239 people on board, 153 of them Chinese, is yet to yield to any substantial result, the space surveillance net project is gaining strong backing from key government officials in Beijing, the South China Morning Post reports.
China currently has satellites in the orbit but they largely focus on its region and surrounding area. The exact number of them is a state secret.
‘If we had a global monitoring network today, we wouldn’t be searching in the dark. We would have a much greater chance to find the plane and trace it to its final position. The plan is being drafted to expand our regional monitoring capability,’ Professor Chi Tianhe, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of remote Sensing and Digital Earth, told the SCMP…” (China is portrayed as heading up the most horrific part of the battle of Armageddon: “Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths” Revelation 19:14 – 18. See the next two reports.)
U.S. Admiral: China to have nuclear missiles on subs soon
March 26, 2014 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “China for the first time will likely have subs equipped with long-range nuclear missiles later this year, part of an increasingly potent submarine fleet, a top US officer said Tuesday.
The head of US Pacific Command, Admiral Samuel Locklear, said the latest class of Chinese subs would be armed with a new ballistic missile with an estimated range of 4,000 nautical miles (7,500 kilometers).
‘This will give China its first credible sea-based nuclear deterrent, probably before the end of 2014,’ Locklear told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Locklear was referring to the production of China’s JIN-class nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine and the new JL-2 missile on board the vessel.
‘China’s advance in submarine capabilities is significant. They possess a large and increasingly capable submarine force,’ the admiral said.
In October, Chinese state media for the first time showed images of the country’s nuclear-powered submarines, touting it as a ‘credible second-strike nuclear capability.’
Locklear said China’s submarine modernization effort was impressive…”
Asian leaders watching Obama’s ‘capitulation’
April 6, 2014 — WND.com reports: “As the United States looks to ‘pivot’ its strategic policy to Asia, the Obama administration’s response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea has sent reverberations into East Asia, casting doubt on its commitment to prevent aggression from China or North Korea.
Victor Cha, professor of government at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Beijing and Pyongyang haven’t missed the U.S. ‘capitulation’ by President Barack Obama to Putin’s assertiveness in Crimea.
And there have been signs Putin may not stop there.
Cha told Asia Times that Putin is a ‘threat to Asia,’ even though, like the U.S., the Russian leader is showing his assertiveness in East Asia through developing increased trade and military ties.
Last June, Putin, in a speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, announced a plan to boost Russia’s economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region rather than in Russia’s traditional markets in Europe…”
