#VIEWPOINT: What if China plans to invade US in 2034? - @DanJohnJohnson

Recent American interference in Ukraine, in which America helped neo-Nazis and far right extremists overthrow a democratically elected government, is but the latest episode in a decades-long pattern of US intervention in sovereign states in order to “help” their beleaguered inhabitants.

Since 1945 America has bombed 33 countries, oftentimes with the aim of saving their respective populations from their selves, a campaign of altruistic mass slaughter which has led to countless deaths and untold environmental and economic destruction.

On the eve of NATO’s bombardment of Libya, President Obama declared:
"All attacks against civilians must stop …. Gaddafi must stop his troops from advancing… Humanitarian assistance must be allowed to reach the people of Libya. Let me be clear, these terms are not negotiable. If Gaddafi does not comply, the international community will impose consequences, and the resolution will be enforced through military action….”
American oil interests and international financial institutions keen to lend the new Libyan government money to rebuild their own country cast more than a shadow of doubt on the sincerity of the President’s intentions, but let us for a moment give him the benefit of the doubt. Let us assume that throughout the 20th and 21st centuries America really did unleash wave after wave of destruction across the globe in order to create a better world for the inhabitants of the countries she destroyed.

Let us also imagine that in 20 years from now, America is no longer the preeminent military and economic power in the world. Let us imagine for instance that China has replaced America as global policeman extraordinaire, and has followed in America’s footsteps by making it her business to correct by force the internal problems – real or invented – of any country it sees fit.

To where might China, the new global policeman in our hypothetical scenario, turn its attention? Which failed state, tin pot dictatorship or terror sponsoring tyranny will China choose to liberate from its self-imposed bondage? Well there is one country which comes to mind – America!

The year is 2034, and the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party is addressing the people of America via satellite television:
“My fellow citizens, events in America have now reached the final days of decision. Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the American regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised.
“The regime has a history of reckless aggression in the Middle East, and it has aided, trained and harboured terrorists, including operatives of al-Qaeda. It has formed, along with Israel and others, an ‘Axis of Evil’ which poses a clear and present danger to our country and our allies abroad.
“The American regime promotes violence against women, being as it is the centre of the global pornography industry. The American regime has a history of persecuting minorities, with racial slavery only being officially outlawed in the State of Mississippi in 2007!
“America is gripped by religious extremism! Cults like “Heaven’s Gate” promoting belief in UFOs, and radical preachers like David Koresh have convinced many impressionable young people to commit suicide! Serial murder and mass shootings have become commonplace! The American public has become so miserable that use of Prozac has reached epidemic levels, and even household pets are now taking the drug!
“America has proved that it is not fit to govern its own affairs. Corporations like ENRON swindle the people out of their money, and they must not be allowed to continue operating with impunity!
“Instead of drifting along toward tragedy, we will set a course toward safety. Before the day of horror can come, before it is too late to act, this danger will be removed. 
“Many Americans can hear me tonight in a translated radio broadcast, and I have a message for them: if we must begin a military campaign, it will be directed against the lawless men who rule your country and not against you. As our coalition takes away their power, we will deliver the noodles and traditional Chinese medicine you need. We will tear down the apparatus of terror and we will help you to build a new America that is prosperous and free.
"In free America there will be no more wars of aggression against your neighbours, no more poison factories, no more executions of dissidents, no more torture chambers and rape rooms. 
“The tyrant will soon be gone.”
