China against NATO: the military bloc is studying the influence of the PRC on the possibility of a quick transfer of troops in Europe

47

The North Atlantic military bloc is studying the influence of the PRC on the possibility of a quick transfer of troops in Europe if China starts aggressive actions against NATO. Therefore, alliance officials are closely monitoring Chinese investments in European transport infrastructure.


Sebastian Sprenger writes about this in an article published by Defense News.

Alliance officials said the issue affects two areas of efforts under NATO's 2030 reforms, which are expected to be the main theme of the upcoming summit tentatively scheduled for June.

Above all, NATO members are taking steps to prepare their countries for major shocks, including future pandemics. In addition, they are trying to find a common language with China, whose state strategy of global advancement has baffled the leaders of the alliance, who are used to viewing threats through a military lens. They are worried that NATO may lose guaranteed access to European logistics hubs - airports, ports, railway terminals, which are already under Chinese control. Over the past decade, China has invested in this industry in Europe at least 70 billion euros.

Now the North Atlantic Alliance is trying to understand how serious the consequences of the presence of China-owned transport infrastructure in Europe, which Beijing could hypothetically begin to use against NATO, can be. One of the options under consideration is the complete blocking of seaports and airports, which will lead NATO's transport logistics in Europe to a complete collapse.

              Statistics and nothing else, for example ..
              Today in the Netherlands - 50% of all newborns are Arabs, in 15 years more than half of the population of the Netherlands will profess Islam. In France, 30% of children under the age of 20 now profess Islam, in large cities (Paris, Marseille, etc.) - 45%, and this is with the birth rate among immigrants 8,1, and among the indigenous French 1,8. .. by 2027, every fifth Frenchman will be a Muslim ..
              Everyone knows about Germany, which received a decent number of immigrants from Africa and Asia - we will observe the statistics on the birth rate, I am sure of an explosive increase in the birth rate of these immigrants literally in 10 years. Mediterranean countries like Spain, with a birth rate of 1,1 Or Italy with - 1,2, Greece - 1,3 .. you know ..

              He read this book - "Notre Dame Mosque" .... yyyyy ...

              A new novel by the famous writer E. Chudinova, written in the genre of dystopia, this time tells about our possible future. The European Union declares Islam the state religion one fine morning. Notre Dame Cathedral turns into a cathedral mosqueas it once happened with St. Sophia in Constantinople. About terrorism and resistance, about the ghetto and the catacomb Catholic Church, a novel tells that can become a formidable prophecy, like the famous "Oh this Brave New World" by Huxley, or "1984" Orwell.
              "Old" Europeans are exiled to the ghetto, their daughters are scattered to harems and brothels. The Catholic Church goes into the catacombs, as in the days of the persecution of the first Christians. Only a handful of underground fighters are still fighting. Submit or fight, even without hope of victory - this is the choice facing everyone who still remembers their glorious ancestors. Behind the adventures of the heroes of the book lies a difficult choice that we must realize.

        This is a song for Europe in the subject. China has already bought up a bunch of logistics centers in Europe. Not only logistics, but also sea carriers with millions of tonnages of ships. Such a person will come to Rotterddam or Hamburg and how PLA soldiers, with heavy weapons, will trample from 40 foot containers! NATO generals. And in an hour there will be the border of Russia and the border of China in the east. The border of Belarus, the border of China in the west.

    Are they serious? Yes, during the threatened period, all unreliable ones will be isolated from infrastructure facilities. And if not, then nothing will prevent the power structures from occupying these facilities and organizing work. Well, in fact, NATO will not worry about the observance of rights regarding private property in the event of the outbreak of hostilities with anyone.

        It is not necessary to replace personnel - in the age of digital technologies, it is quite enough to "shaman" the software ....

    Two trump cards of the economy: money and means of production.
    The West has money. But the means of production, from year to year, are becoming less and less.
    Chinese control over ports and other infrastructure is just one factor, the tip of the iceberg ...
    If in the midst of a hypothetical military conflict from China they stop supplying SOCKS, then in a month or two, all NATO will go down with calluses ...
    China has practically monopolized the production of socks in the world. And not only them, but also the entire military uniform. They are bought in China by the armies of many countries, because there are no manufacturers left in theirs ...
    And this is also only one of the factors ...

      The West has no money.
      There is no money in banks for industrial and infrastructure investments.
      Even the largest British banks are in dire straits.
      And, for example, the largest bank in Germany - Deutsche Bank - is completely destitute.
      Its American subsidiary covers the losses of all European subsidiaries. Etc.
      In the United States, banks are in a better position, but they are not a fountain either.
      There is also no money for investments in Europe.
      And the Chinese do.
      And they are actively proposing to Europeans to build "turnkey" ports,
      railway roads, industrial zones. And those agree, of course.
      In Israel, too, the Chinese have built two newest private
      ports, they have punched tunnels, they are building a railway. Their construction firms
      are building office and residential high-rise buildings at a fantastic rate.
      And good quality, which is important.

    What would the child (NATO) amuse himself with, as long as he does not shoot. And that the Chinese have already transferred their military units to Europe under the guise of builders, engineers, service personnel, and how many thousands? It is unlikely that a member of the directors of any company, together with his associates, will be able to "cut off oxygen" to the NATO troops, otherwise what kind of troops are they? But if necessary, they can create difficulties.

    Sheer nonsense from all points of view.
    Firstly, China is not able to withstand the nuclear power of the United States in the first place, which means that in any conflict in Europe, the Americans will stand on the side of the Europeans, and the Chinese will lose the war.
    Secondly, the logistics and delivery of Chinese troops, as well as supply, are simply unthinkable with modern transport due to the huge distances to Europe.
    Thirdly, if you look closely at the activities of China, then they have clearly taken a course towards economic domination in the world, and they simply do not need a war at this stage.
    Fourth, they are in a position to influence policy through economic and other measures, and it is not yet clear whether the outbreak of the coronavirus and the success of the Chinese vaccine are not links in the same chain.
    I think the European analysts of NATO got stoned, or someone who wrote the article had a coronavirus with consequences on the brain, but I see no other reason to write this nonsense.

    Some kind of cognitive dissonance ... It's like a war with China, and troops will be deployed in Europe.
