It’s now public knowledge that Major-General Adam Findlay told Australia’s special forces soldiers last year that they must plan for the “high likelihood” of conflict with China. This insane march towards war is the endgame of the Anglo-American financial oligarchy’s quest for global dictatorship which the Citizens Party (then Citizens Electoral Council) extensively documented in 2012. We warned that Russia and China are the final targets in a series of regime-change wars. But a misguided belief that these nations would submit to military intimidation could lead the world to thermonuclear Armageddon risking all life on Earth.
Former Prime Minister and Defence Minister Malcolm Fraser at the time made similar warnings, to the shock of many. The 26 September 2012 editorial in Murdoch’s Australian, headlined “Fraser should be dismissed”, ridiculed the former PM’s “increasingly loopy and incredible interventions” and asserted that “his portrayal of the USA as a warmonger and presage of a nuclear conflagration with China is unwise, to say the least”. Chairman of the Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Michael Danby accused Fraser of “hysteria”.
Following the October 2011 murder of former Libyan head of state Muammar Qaddafi, by a concert of Britain, France and the USA under President Obama, US statesman Lyndon LaRouche warned that the regime change agenda would lead to “an already pre-staged, Anglo-American-led thermonuclear bombardment … against leading nations of Asia including Russia and China”. In response to LaRouche’s warning, in 2012 the Citizens Electoral Council documented the escalating nuclear war danger in two mass-distribution New Citizen newspapers: the June/July issue (Vol. 7 No. 7), headlined “British Crown’s End-game: Financial Crash and Nuclear War”, which included the feature article “Australia Prepares for World War: Tragedy, or Just Plain Farce?”; and the Oct./Nov./Dec. issue (Vol. 7 No. 8) headlined “Act Now! Stop Nuclear War!”, which featured former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser’s warnings of the nuclear war danger, which most mainstream media at the time either ignored or ridiculed.
The above two New Citizen newspapers documented the following:
By 2012 the Anglo-American military encirclement of Russia and China and assault on sovereignty was escalating to provoke significant voices of alarm. On 3 May 2012, Chief of the Russian Armed Forces General Staff General Nikolai Makarov declared that further advances in the deployment of a Ballistic Missile Defence system by the United States and NATO in Europe would so greatly threaten Russia’s security, as to necessitate a pre-emptive attack on such installations. “Considering the destabilising nature of the BMDS”, Makarov told an audience including US officials, “specifically the creation of the illusion of being able to inflict a disarming first strike without retaliation, a decision on the pre-emptive use of available offensive weapons will be taken during the period of an escalating situation.”
On 17 May 2012 Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, addressing a law conference in St. Petersburg, warned that national sovereignty was under assault around the world, including through unilateral sanctions and military operations not approved by the United Nations, and the declaration by outside interests that countries’ governments are illegitimate. “Such actions, which undermine state sovereignty”, said Medvedev, “can easily lead to full-scale regional wars, even—I am not trying to scare anyone here—with the use of nuclear weapons.”
Any scheme for a nuclear first strike against Russia or China seeks to neutralise their ability to retaliate; their missile launches from land or sea must be detected and intercepted. Upgrading Australia’s several signal intelligence (SIGINT) networks is integral to the US global Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) program for this purpose. The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), headquartered in Canberra, administers SIGINT facilities like the famous Pine Gap station near Alice Springs. The ASD, like all our military and intelligence agencies, is so deeply integrated into its British and American counterparts as to constitute a single entity. A program of interoperability has enabled this merger. Australia has in effect no sovereign defence policy!
The Australian of 2 June 2012 summarised, “A secret chapter in the Rudd government’s 2009 defence white paper detailed a plan to fight a war with China, in which the navy’s submarines would help blockade its trade routes, and raised the prospect of China firing missiles at targets in Australia in retaliation.” The Vol. 7 No. 7 New Citizen warned that the US base at Pine Gap among other defence facilities such as the Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) are integral for Anglo-American plans to inflict a first strike on Russia and China. But as Russia and China are aware of this reality, this sets Australia up as a target itself.
The 29 March 2012 issue of Global Times, a Chinese stateowned paper written for foreign readers, editorialised that “North Korea and Iran are named by Washington as the targets of the missile defence system, though it is clear the real targets are China and Russia.” Moreover, the editorial warned, “Installing a missile defence system in Asia disrespects China’s nuclear policy. The USA is seeking to shift the regional balance. A strong response from China should be expected. An overarching missile defence system would force China to change its long-held nuclear policy.” As all experts know, “change its long-held nuclear policy” refers to abandonment of China’s pledge of “no first use” of nuclear weapons.
The two New Citizen papers contain further extensive documentation on this subject which makes for essential reading now as the strategic situation becomes more urgent by the day.
