The military-industrial complex is real, and it's bigger than ever

The military-industrial complex is real, and it's bigger than ever | militarisation | Scoop.it

President Eisenhower was ridiculed as a conspiracy theorist for his famous remark about the 'military-industry complex'. But Edward Snowden’s leaks have reminded us it’s real, it’s bigger and more wasteful than ever, and its bloat can even threaten our national security.

This Satellite Contract Shows Just How Much China Is Winning In Africa

This Satellite Contract Shows Just How Much China Is Winning In Africa | militarisation | Scoop.it

American satellite communication over Africa is so bad that the Department of Defense contracted Chinese satellite Apstar 7 to provide communications for AFRICOM.

"The satellite news comes on top of recent revelation that China's "African aid" totalled $70 billion over the last decade.

The figure is on par with what America spends — except while America spends money on social welfare projects, China's aid to Africa is at least accused of being focused on exploiting resources."

The People's Republic of China's military, the People's Liberation Army (PLA ~ 中國人民解放軍) announced in April of this year (2013) that indeed has given its military intent to ensure that the informization of all Chinese military forces is a necessary condition for protecting its international sovereignty...

 

"Aiming to win local wars under the conditions of informationization and expanding and intensifying military preparedness. China's armed forces firmly base their military preparedness on winning local wars under the conditions of informationization, make overall and coordinated plans to promote military preparedness in all strategic directions, intensify the joint employment of different services and arms, and enhance warfighting capabilities based on information systems."...

 

BTW...this report on how the Chinese military will be employed was issued by Information Office of the State Council...State Council Information Office SCIO; 国务院新闻办公室...http://www.scio.gov.cn/

 

If the world did not think there was a binary cold war beginning between the United States and the People's Republic of China...there should be absolutely no doubts in anyone's military mind now...
