    Chinese General Threatens US with World War 3 over Iran

    Chinese General Threatens US with World War 3 over Iran | EUTimes.net



    US dispatches three more warships to Middle East.

    A military General from the Chinese National Defense University says that China should not hesitate to protect Iran, even if it means launching world war three, as more US warships are dispatched to the region amidst heightening tensions.

    According to NDTV, a Chinese news station based outside the country, in regard to recent speculation that Iran would be the target of a US-Israeli military assault, Major General Zhang Zhaozhong commented that, “China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third world war,” remarks described as “puzzling to some”.

    The news report also quotes Professor Xia Ming as paraphrasing Zhaozhong’s quote that, “not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs.”

    China has vehemently reaffirmed its alliance with Iran in recent weeks, most notably yesterday when it refused to criticize Iran for a raid on the British Embassy in Tehran launched by Iranian students earlier this week.

    Both China and Russia have made it clear that they will veto any UN authorization of military action against Iran in the aftermath of claims that Iran is on the verge of developing a nuclear weapon.

    “China has noted the tough reactions made by the relevant countries over this event and is concerned over the development of the situation,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei told reporters today.

    “We hope relevant countries will keep calm and exercise restraint and avoid taking emotional actions that may rachet up the confrontation.”

    Meanwhile, in a related development, three more US warships have been dispatched to join the USS John C. Stennis in the 5th fleet region.

    With the Stennis, a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered supercarrier, already stationed just outside Iranian territorial waters, the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier has just been deployed from its home port to join the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR.

    “In addition to the USS Carl Vinson’s departure, guided-missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill and guided-missile destroyer left in the morning, and the USS Halsey will depart at 2 p.m,” reports NBC SanDiego, adding that the ships are headed for the Middle East.

    Fears of an imminent military assault on Syria were sparked when the USS George H.W. Bush left its usual theater of operations to position itself just off the Syrian coast, but the warship has now completed its mission and is sailing back to its home port in Norfolk Virginia.

    What,and lose their biggest customer? Not gonna happen. War with Iran does look likely though. And it is gonna be rough. Iran will not go quietly. China will give them weapons but that's where their involvement will end. They will not jeopardize all that money they're making off us. This is just bluster.

    War with Iran has been a MIC wet dream for 30 years, the war profiteers have been drooling over the thought of the 50 year war that will follow. If we attack them without a clear and undeniable act of aggression on their part we deserve the title of rogue nation and the full repercussions that follow.

    Rest assured, the U.S. is not the only country on this planet that is eminently pissed off at China.
    There's more of us than there is of them. Fuck the little yellow runts.

    Good luck with that China. Despite their Bluster that are still completely and totally out matched Both Conventionally and in the Nuclear Arena. They could make serious trouble for the Countries around them, but their only real option to attack the US would be the Nuclear Option.

    The Truth is, and this is not to say that dependance precludes war, But China is just as dependent on us as we are on them. The Massive Growth of their Economy is due in no small part to the American Consumer after all.

    I feel this article is probably manufactured hogwash, but that is beside the fact that even talking of a war with China as something that would have a winner is just ludicrous. If things ever went that wrong then humanity deserves extinction, we would just be too stupid to live.

    Funny how all the mess in Asia the Middle East and US is playing out. Seems I've heard of this story somewhere before....like prophecy. Christian prophecy or something. Wow, crazy how it's following such a similar path.

    The operative word is "crazy". Crap like this very well could lead to an apocalypse but Jesus would not be there at the end, just a bunch of dead bodies with no one to bury them.
