Iran, the Strait of Hormuz and the Chinese Communist Party

Jan. 14– If Iran seizes control of the Strait of Hormuz, its puppet master– the Chinese Communist Party– will dominate a shipping lane vital to world trade.

Approximately 22 percent of the world’s oil supply begins its journey on supertankers at the northwestern end of the Persian Gulf and passes through the Strait of Hormuz.

On Jan. 11, President Obama warned Iran not to disrupt the free flow of oil by closing off the Strait of Hormuz. The U.S. would consider any disruption of oil shipments or closure of shipping lanes an act of war, because the free flow of oil is vital to U.S. national security.

Iran’s suicidal tendencies, mine warfare and importance of regional stability

Iran has little ability to stop the mass exodus of oil with its limited military technology and inferior navy, which is out-classed at every level by the U.S. Navy.

If Iran wants to risk a suicidal confrontation with the United States, it must depend on inferior weapon technology supplied by China and a willingness to test the United States’ resolve.

Iran’s only hope for “limited” success is with mine warfare, but the U.S. navy is well-equipped for finding mines placed in shipping lanes. U.S. counter measures, which include advanced mine sweeping, electronic warfare and “mine-sniffing” dolphins, provide the best defense against Iran’s archaic, desperate use of mine warfare.

As previously stated, 22 percent of the world’s oil supply passes through the Strait of Hormuz. This shipping lane, vital to world trade, must remain open at every cost.

The Strait of Hormuz is the exit point for oil production coming from several key suppliers. After oil is extracted from Iraq, Iran, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, it is pumped into supertankers that navigate through the narrow Strait of Hormuz at the southeastern end of the Persian Gulf.

These supertankers must sail within a few miles of Iran’s shore when attempting to navigate the internationally designated shipping lane between the countries of Iran and Oman.

After navigating the Strait, they enter the Indian Ocean and sail on to their appointed oil refineries.

Communist forces wage another proxy war against the United States, as China uses Iran to test the U.S.

The Chinese Communist Party seeks Middle East subjugation to dominate the population politically, economically and socially, control natural resources and raise oil prices to cripple the U.S. economy.

China supplies Iran with anti-aircraft carrier missile technology, which also works on supertankers, and also provides nuclear technology so Iran, like North Korea, can develop nuclear weapons and do the CCP’s dirty work.

If the CCP can use other countries to fight its wars and destroy American allies like Israel, they don’t have to risk a direct confrontation with a superior military operated by the U.S.

By causing economic chaos and staging proxy wars, which cause the U.S. military to over extend itself, the CCP hopes to destroy the U.S. from within, rather than from the outside with direct military engagement.

Although the CCP’s military force is growing at a rapid pace, it is years away from having the capability for a direct confrontation.

The Chinese Communist Party prefers to wage proxy wars and expand its global influence through economic colonization with currency manipulation, as it keeps its head down and expands its military with a goal of worldwide conquest and enslavement of 7-billion people.

Cutting off or at least controlling the world’s oil supply is a primary move on the CCP’s global chessboard.

Second Cold War or Same Old Cold War?

Some analysts call this another conflict in the Second Cold War, but in reality, the original Cold War never ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union’s collapse.

When considering the fundamentals of the Truman Doctrine, the art of communist containment and later the implementation of the Carter Doctrine, which is a modification of the Truman Doctrine derived from George Kennan’s “Long Telegram,” the Cold War never ended.

The key adversaries are all that changed. It went from the United States vs. the Soviet Union to the United States vs. the Chinese Communist Party.

We are witnessing display after display of the age-old art of military containment. When all is said and done, the Chinese Communist Party will face an internal collapse similar to the defunct Soviet Union.

The disintegration of China’s brutal communist regime, and its illegitimate  hold on power, will result in the formation of many new countries.

Maps will soon show independent countries with names like Tibet, Xinjiang Uygur, Dongbei and more whose inhabitants will not be subjected to torture and systematic genocide delivered from despotic, self-glorifying maniacs ruling from an ivory tower thousands of miles away in a dying capital called Beijing.
