Freeze Peach | Tides of change (Part II)
By Ric d'Stard Lee
As the West becomes increasingly desperate in Asia, we're seeing more coincidental political drama across all nations at the hands of the most US proxy "agent provocateur" institutions (too many to name here but CIA essentially).
We're seeing plenty of examples of just how these "coincidences" play out, violently and dangerously, in Myanmar and Thailand. In Myanmar, armed conflict is spreading between US-backed opposition and the Myanmar military, which currently holds power after forcefully ousting "pro-democracy" leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
If you haven't noticed already, any movement or movement leader billed as "pro-democracy" in Western media means they are essentially at the mercy of CIA handling and US instruction.
In Thailand, student-led protests – a near-exact carbon copy of the 2019 "black terror" protests in Hong Kong – have become increasingly deranged and violent (like Hong Kong). But also, they're dwindling in numbers and support, with fewer people swallowing the self-serving and toxic agenda of its narrative. To most, it's becoming abundantly clear that the US is behind this unrest within a geopolitical game of China business BRI project sabotage.
Proving that the US political system consists of a one-party system (maybe with different marketing campaigns), we have watched the administrations of Donald Trump and now Joseph Biden try to recruit as many nations as possible into this anti-China alliance.
And so, 2022, what's in store for you?
China understands that building infrastructure and strengthening co-beneficial ties with its neighbors is the least conflict-laden best path forward but one of hardcore resistance from the US-led "West."
With a new high-speed rail line completed in Laos and in December another high-speed rail line in Thailand finished connecting both countries, the ink of the script that China builds and the US destroys is starting to dry. With China, the region is stronger and more resilient to the US's destabilization tactics, which will only get more desperate and depraved over time.
With the Anglosphere's nuclear AUKUS posturing, a fast becoming a PR joke whereby Australia might not even get a single working sub, ASEAN's importance for regional stability will come more into focus. And if ASEAN doesn't indirectly stand up to these provocations in, say, Myanmar, chaos could spread like dominos across the entire region. The US's goal more than ever is to supplant and introduce extremely anti-China parties into power under trojan-horse democracies that are easily corruptible and influenceable. Should these US-backed puppet governments ascend into power, they will immediately cut ties to China and progress projects, destroying their respective economies in the process and their own people. And if the US doesn't get its way under shame elections, they will turn Western media up to 11 claiming the polls were rigged or some other shit.
Finally, we have the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, which starts in a week or two. Once again, the US has tried to cajole its lackeys into boycotting the event. Like any of Olympic magnitude, the event itself should be something for the host country and the region to celebrate. Yet even announcing its diplomatic boycott, the under-reported reality is that the US IS sending diplomats to the event but only after they loudly proclaimed a virtue signal in the mainstream media.
Regardless, the US will do everything it can to tar and feather the host nation, something it feels it can do based on a skewed moral compass — remember they have caused more destruction and displacement and death in the world than any other nation in history ever. Regardless, they will use baseless moral grandstanding to amplify the outrage, dehumanizing the target and its people as much as possible.
Most concerning are the geopolitical flashpoints of Taiwan and Ukraine.
2022 it's going to be another year where the US will exhibit how war-hungry it is with the notion of exercising power over all other nations rather than contributing constructively to the globe.
Till next time.
