Pentagon Viciously Threatens China Over Involvement in…

Proxy wars abound!

With the global population still simmering after two years of stressful, pandemic survival and surprisingly slow economic recovery that followed, there are fears that the international community is itching for a fight.

The most prominent symptom of this potential problem is Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has turned into an all out proxy war between the western world and the authoritarians of the east.   Now, as China begins to involve themselves ever more thoroughly in the conflict, the Pentagon is drawing a line in the sand.

The Pentagon on Wednesday pledged “consequences” for Beijing if it heeds Moscow’s desperate pleas for arms and ammunition but yet again stopped short of detailing how it would follow through on the stern but vague threat.

Spokeswoman Sabrina Singh delivered the cagey response during a press conference in which she demurred despite repeated requests for specifics.

“I don’t want to forecast any of those consequences,” she said.

The threats are nothing new.

It wasn’t the first such shadowy warning. In an interview that aired Sunday on CBS News, Secretary of State Antony Blinken referred to a “serious problem” if China looked to strengthen its alliance with Russia at this time.

Other, smaller nations such as North Korea and Iran have also been accused of providing material support to the Kremlin in their genocide of Ukraine, leading many to believe that an global authoritarian allegiance is forming right under our noses.
