Don’t fall for “another Pearl Harbor” and remember nearly every US war since the war for independence has been preceded by a false flag of one sort or another:
On Wednesday, Japan’s number two defense official said China and Russia are showing increased signs of military cooperation and their activities in the Pacific could show signs they plan to launch a Pearl Harbor-style attack on the U.S., similitar to how Japan did on Dec. 7, 1941, propelling the U.S. into World War II.
Speaking at a Hudson Institute event, Japanese State Defense Minister Yasuhide Nakayama said, “Seventy years ago, we attacked Pearl Harbor, but now the U.S. and Japan [are] very good allies, one of the best allies all over the world.” Nakayama went on to say now Russian naval forces “are really exercising just right in front of the western part of Honolulu, and so I don’t want to remind the 70 years ago, but we have to be careful of the exercising of the Russians.”

In recent days, Russia’s fleet has conducted various naval drills near Hawaii, including practicing sinking an aircraft carrier. Some Russian ships have been reported operating within 35 nautical miles of Hawaii’s coastline. Amidst the nearby Russian naval drills, the U.S. Navy repositioned Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 1 in the Hawaiian Islands Operating Area.
Nakayama said, “We have to show the deterrence towards China, and not just China but also the Russians, because, as I told you, that they are doing their exercises together.”
China and Russia are not the aggressors. Russia is not trying to build bases in Mexico. China is not trying to put missiles in Canada. But the US military is expanding its operations in both Asia and Eastern Europe, because the neocons who want war with a) Syria, b) Iran, c) Russia, and d) China know that operational capacity is trending away from the military over which they have influence, so they want to use it while they still can.
The best thing the USA can do is pull out of Asia and pull out of Europe and abandon its outdated aspirations for permanent global hegemony.
