Less than 24 hours ago we warned that it is time for Americans to prepare for war. And not just another proxy war or an invasion of a country with a military utilizing World War II era armaments. This time, it could be disastrous.
Amid reports that Russia and Iran will use force to counter any military action by the United States in Syria, it is now being widely reported that China is massing some 150,000 troops on the North Korean border.
Via Zero Hedge:
According to Korean news agency Chosun, the “Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops to the North Korean border in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.” The reason: the prospect of “military options”, such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, like the one the United States launched on Syria.
More Google translated:As the United States announced its independent North Korean behavior and moved the United States Navy’s nuclear-powered Calvinus (CVN-70) carrier class to Singapore, the Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.
“The report said. It is because of the prospect of taking “military options”, such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, just as the United States has launched an air raid on Syria.
Japan’s Sankei Shimbun reported on the 9th that the Syrian missile strike in the United States shocked China, suggesting that the People’s Liberation Army forces are moving toward the Yalu River, .
The newspaper said the video was also broadcast on the Internet, but the authorities removed the relevant information, saying the move was a medical and aft support unit for the Shenyang bulb (the northern light bulb)
The military ramp up follows a weekend meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
It is not clear if China is deploying troops in support of the United States or as a show of force in response to President Trump’s recent missile strike on Syria.
The more likely scenario is that the Chinese are now mobilizing their military in anticipation of some sort of response by the United States to North Korea’s continued nuclear and missile tests.
Though we’d all like to think cooler heads will prevail, the fact is that several of the heads involved could act completely outside of the status quo, meaning that a nuclear conflagration becomes all the more probable.
In such a scenario, all bets are off.
If you haven’t yet prepared critical emergency supplies like food, water and self defense tools, now is a good time to get it done. Moreover, while we shudder to think that a nuclear exchange is even possible in today’s sophisticated world, you never really know, which is why we recommend considering emergency equipment like CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) rated gas masks, NBC filters, anti-radiation nuke pills and protective body suits. Should you have to shelter in place during a nuclear emergency or evacuate your city in the midst of an attack, these supplies could mean the difference between life and death.
