The short answer:  No.  A commonly discussed conspiracy theory is the military tensions between the U.S. and Russia/China is part of a Kabuki Theatre show being played where the “truth” is that all three nations are cooperating to implement an NWO plan.

On the surface, this idea is silly.  Upon further examination – including an in-depth discussion with the Shadow of Truth’s man in Beijing – Jeff Brown (China Rising website) – it can be concluded that the theory is outrageously absurd.

China, together with Russia, has in fact been patiently building out the foundations of commerce, finance, trade and geopolitical cooperation for several years.  This is despite the United States’ NATO’s best efforts to derail the “new world order” being fashioned in the eastern hemisphere.  It’s a systematic effort to dismantle U.S. military hegemony and remove the petro-dollar as the global reserve currency.

As the the BRIC/SCO consortium progresses toward this goal, the propaganda all out lies emanating from the U.S. plutocracy becomes more desperate and dangerous.  For instance, last week U.S. Defense Secretary, Ash Carter, responded to China’s efforts to protect its South China Sea territory from U.S. imperialistic aggression:

Any action by China to reclaim land in the Scarborough Shoal, an outcrop in the disputed sea, would have consequences, Carter said…”I hope that this development doesn’t occur, because it will result in actions being taken by the both United States and … by others in the region which would have the effect of not only increasing tensions but isolating China,” Carter told the Shangri-La Dialogue, a regional security forum in Singapore.

“The United States will remain the most powerful military and main underwriter of security in the region for decades to come – and there should be no doubt about that.” LINK

There’s no question which country is the aggressor here.  Ironically, it’s in fact the United States that is increasingly isolating itself from the global community.    China has one military base outside of China – in Djibouti.  Russia has military bases in nine countries, mostly countries which were part of the former USSR.  The U.S.?  More than 800 military bases in over 70 countries around the world.

The Shadow Truth spent some time with our man in Beijing to discuss the “5th Column” topic – in which western (U.S.) educated Chinese and Russian nationals operate in colusion with the U.S.’ Deep State in an attempt to overthrow the current political regimes in Russia and China.   Jeff helps explain this dynamic and why it’s failing, at least in China.
