The geopolitics of China. That is, how Beijing is waging its war against Western hegemony


Recent war and geopolitical developments are revealing ever more clearly the nature and aims of the geopolitics of the Chinese power. In fact, as we have already had the opportunity to clarify ( Beijing is playing its game against the Anglo-Saxon empire on multiple fronts. And above all, he is moving his pawns on the chessboard one by one. Effectively making the global geopolitical and geoeconomic scenario increasingly complex and hostile for Washington and London. This is not only contributed by the multiplication of land war fronts but also by the emergence of very serious and dangerous threats to the Anglo-Saxon thalassocracy and to world trade. We are referring in particular to what is happening in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean where Yemeni Houti forces and Somali piracy (which suddenly reactivated out of nowhere) are attacking merchant ships transiting the area. And what could happen if Tehran, following a military escalation with the West, were to decide to close the Strait of Hormuz. In summary, Beijing is warning its rivals very clearly. Since the Dragon has the ability to act on the inflation levels of the economies of Western countries and cause mortal damage to the latter by increasing the costs of transporting goods (in the event of a blockage of maritime commercial traffic in the Red Sea) and that of the price of oil (estimated up to 200-250 dollars per barrel in case of closure of the Strait of Hormuz). Which, combined with the military developments that are maturing in Eastern Europe, make the geopolitical picture of immense complexity and problematicity for the entire Western world. Who didn’t even think he would find himself facing such a scenario. And who would never have believed that geopolitical and geostrategic factors could undermine the action of their central banks on which, de facto, the economies of Europe and the United States depend. Western political leaderships are starting to realize that their geopolitical calculations have turned out to be completely wrong. And that we are now faced with a new phase which sees not only the probable advance of Russian troops towards central-western Ukraine but also a direct confrontation with Iran (and its allies) in the Middle East with all repercussions of the case. A nightmare picture for the Western establishment which, instead of engaging in senseless discourses on the historical role of the West in the world, would do better to take action (if they have the faculties) to exponentially increase war production also by converting part of the industry heavy for civilian use. On the other hand, if the West, as it seems, is not able to reach an agreement with its geopolitical counterpart to reform the international economic and financial system (giving up control of it, at least in part) there is no other solution than war . A war that will not be confined to Eastern Europe, but will expand throughout the Middle East, Africa and the Far East where Beijing intends to resolve, once and for all, the age-old issue of Taiwan( We are talking about a different order of measures compared to what was considered by the Western political elites when they launched their warlike affront to Russia in the land of Ukraine. Order of measures whose immensity and unsustainability for the Western economic and military complex are perhaps beginning to be understood.


Beijing is therefore conducting a skilful assault on the hegemony of the West by threatening the latter’s vital interests in the military field (expanding the theater of war more and more), threatening the autonomy of the action of the Western money factory (the action of the US and EU central banks), actively favoring the replacement of the dollar in national and international trade, creating problems in the supply chain of rare earths (essential for the electronics and telecommunications industries and of which Beijing holds the majority of world production) and other essential resources (, threatening the most important trade route in the world and of vital importance for the European economy as well as the export of hydrocarbons from the Persian Gulf and actively contrasting the Anglo-Saxon geopolitics of divide and rule ( in important and vital geopolitical arenas of the world ( .In summary, the economic, military and diplomatic action of the Middle Kingdom appears, nowadays, more dangerous and deadly than ever for the interests and power of the West. Challenges that require (and will require) an enormous mobilization of resources on the part of the latter. Which leaves us predicting very worrying scenarios for the years to come and for global geopolitical balances. What is certain is that the Dragon now appears to be in possession of prodigious resources for the intended purpose. The largest industrial capacity in the world (equal to 27% of global output and equivalent to that of the USA and EU combined), a geopolitical and geostrategic ally (Russia) which, unique in the world, is capable of militarily contain the West and supply it (by land) with low-cost raw materials in almost unlimited quantities (equipping its industrial and productive apparatus with an impressive competitive advantage over its Western rivals), a still very strong trade surplus ( capable of keeping state finances healthy), a gigantic internal market still rapidly expanding and a favorable geographical location in the area of the world with the highest economic and demographic development (South Asia and the Indian subcontinent) on the planet. In summary, the Dragon appears stronger and more determined than ever in continuing its fight against Western hegemony. Will Washington and London be able to stop him? We will see. But, given the data in hand, it will be a very difficult undertaking. For the reasons stated above and expressed several times and revealed on this blog
