How does Canadian warship HMCS Winnipeg on China’s coast help Asian women feed the kids?
HMCS Winnipeg serves no good purpose off China shores whatsoever, says an all women think tank.
“Hundreds of thousands of ordinary civilian women and their families around the Asian Seas are going hungry, failing in their thousand-year tradition of making a living from the sea, because of a war between racially-clashing patriarchs insisting with their collective conduct the Asian Seas are strictly for military use,” explains Karinna Angeles, from Manila, where she is a nurse and member of a global women’s rights organization.
“I am deeply worried about the malnutrition and hunger I have seen along the island coasts in the Philippines archipelago. Most concerning is the potential outcome of the deprivation these coastal communities are impacted with because of the America war against China. The behaviour of both sides is depriving fisher folk of monetary income and food in the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Brunei, Malaysia and something must be done,” added the Filipino nurse.
“For years, Asian fisher folk have been unable to access our traditional fishing grounds because of the fighting between America and China,” says Manny, a fisherman in La Union province of the Philippines, who said he was a little afraid to talk about these problems publicly, hence his last name is withheld.
“China is so conscious of the hundreds of US military bases surrounding China’s shores it built seven military-base islands in the southern Asian Seas to combat the thousands of American warship hours spent conducting live fire exercises and other drills off China’s coast,” suggests Simon Baldock, an Israeli security consultant based in Tel Aviv. “If China did that to America or Canada on those two countries’ coasts, there would be a ruckus that would shake the UN building in NYC to its foundations,” he added.
Amidst extreme tensions between China and the West, North America has increased the pressure on China to stop its economic successes which are dominating global economies. The United States maintains some 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories, now all focussed on preparing for war with China.
China has responded with more aircraft sorties into the Taiwan air defence identification zone and more naval exercises. China has also been upgrading its Navy, acting a lot like North Korea after years of bullying from the West, suggests Mr. Baldock.
- On Friday 15 October, according to Russia’s Defence Ministry, the Russian Navy chased an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Chafee (DDG 90) from Russia’s territorial waters in the Sea of Japan during regular Russia/China naval exercises.
- The U.S. military said the the Canadian destroyer-tonnage HMCS Winnipeg and the American Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Dewey sailed through the narrow channel between Taiwan and China along the 14th and 15th of October, (last Thursday and Friday).
- “The United States and Canada colluded to provoke and stir up trouble thus jeopardizing peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait,” said China’s Maritime Command.
But it is a war many fear the US will not win.
This is not the fear of global women’s rights group that has been deeply entrenched in a fight to prevent war between China and America and to preserve for humanity the Asian Seas as a resource for all mankind.
“Any war is an ultimate danger to women and kids but global war will be the probable genocide of women and children, hence another aspect of the failure of the human race to survive itself,” claims Katie Alsop, a founding director of The RINJ Foundation, a global women’s rights NGO.
“Hopelessness is what I see in people’s eyes when we talk about the attacks by America, Canada, Britain, Germany, India and others, as they prepare for war,” explains Sara Qin in a Telegram call from Shenzhen, China. “We in China know we are surrounded by hundreds of military bases.”
