Oil and War
It has been noted that the Allies won WW II by choking the oil supplies to the Axis powers.
The link below shows a cooling off of trade between the west and China. The Chinese give an honest answer to the “WHY” of there cooling relation
with the Canadian oil industry. Simply put they do not like human rights, democracy or environmental concerns to stand in their path toward dominance
“Ms. Evans replied that she knew nothing about the spy issue. But the sceptical question was one example of China's doubts about Canada as an oil
supplier. Beijing wants a relationship of trust with its oil suppliers – and that means it usually prefers to buy from authoritarian regimes in
Africa, Latin America or the former Soviet Union, where there are no complications about democracy or minority rights…”
The oil sands are very expensive to develop; the payoff to the players is simply, safe, secure oil. This is the attitude of the US oil companies at
work in this huge oil play.
China now views Canada as a US pawn.
If you have read the above links you can now formulate the understanding of the Chinese government toward North America. Lets us now look at some
interesting poker between the US Navy and the Chinese.
The Kitty Hawk as well as some other smaller US Navy vessels were refused safe harbour last November. The link will give you part of the story…here
is a snippet.
“Naval Superiority: China did more than just inconvenience U.S. sailors on a port visit two months ago. It forced a naval confrontation that could
have gotten ugly. As the People's Republic puts to sea, it may yet.” Quote from Investors.com
Then after some fierce diplomacy here is the Chinese reply..”There is no need to fear us”
Here is a snippet from the link… "If you say the U.S. is afraid of our military development, and then it means the U.S. does not have enough guts,
it's easily scared,” he said.”We are not that capable. There is no need to fear us."
Look at the link in order to gain a better grasp of the situation.
So let’s look at the game closer to home. South America, whose population has cooled toward the United States and Canada, are warming up to the
Chinese. On my trips to the land of Che I was complexly caught off guard by the large Chinese immigrant population in South America. Others have
been surprised as well. Here is quote from a fellow traveler.www.nolanchart.com...
In the Western Hemisphere Cuba has turned to China as an economic opportunity in the face of American sanctions and is one of China's booming
transport system development market's largest buyers. There are also satellite communications interception sites in Cuba operated by the Chinese
military. These pose a significant threat to American communication systems. Many other South American nations have seen the military potential of the
Asian superpower and joint military training is common in our continent's southern neighbor..... "
I find "Nolanchart" comment below very interesting as well.
The largest danger that could catapult China into the worlds next great superpower is the naval expansions taking place. If the Chinese navy were ever
able to match the combined forces of England and America she would be able to secure natural resources and woo new allies. It would be a hopeless
situation for us. In 2003 the People's Liberation Army Navy launched it's first Aegis Cruiser, the modern naval necessity for a superpower. The old
Soviet aircraft carrier Varyag was purchased in 2001 and has been used for training. In 2007 the navy announced it was developing an aircraft ca
