China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third World War – Major General Zhang Zhaozhong

On November 21st, America, UK and Canada announced more sanctions against Iran. France also proposed to adopt new sanctions to force Tehran to stop it’s nuclear project.

On Nov 23rd, the spokesman of Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s Foreign Ministry said in a regular press conference held in Beijing that China is opposed to unilateral sanctions against Iran.

Scholars believe that, being isolated, China and Iran need mutual support. Meanwhile, the CCP government, with internal and external difficulties, may express an even tougher diplomatic “voice”.

“Reuters” reported on Nov 23rd: “The United States, UK and Canada have announced new sanctions against Iran in the areas of energy and finance. France proposed ‘unprecedented’ new sanctions, including freezing the assets of the Central Bank of Iran and suspending the purchase of Iran’s oil.

Earlier, the “International Atomic Energy Agency” (IAEA) had issued a report that Iran may be secretly developing nuclear weapons.

On Nov 23rd, the CCP’s Foreign Ministry expressed opposition to the imposition of unilateral sanctions against Iran.

In this regard, Xia Ming, a political professor from “City University of New York” in America, believes that since the Cold War, the United States and Western society’s biggest challenges have been seen as being from China and Iran. They are both isolated by the United States and the West. Therefore, China’s policy is foreseeable.

Xia Ming says: “China and Iran are facing strong Western challenges within politics, economy and culture.
So these two countries basically have a kind of coordination on the international stage, to support each other. So we can see that China and Iran coordinate a lot, with a lot of cooperation in matters of energy, arms and so on.”

“Associated Press” also reported on Nov 23rd: “Since 2006, the United Nations have carried out 4 rounds of sanctions against Iran. But with export of energy, Iran has not been severely affected by the sanctions.”

“AFP” said: “China supports Iran and purchases large quantities of oil from Iran. Meanwhile, China is Iran’s biggest trading partner. Their bilateral trade totals up to $ 30 billion.

“Voice of America” reported, according to Chinese customs’ data, this year (2011) Iran could become China’s second largest crude oil supplier.

However, Iran disdains the new round of sanctions. Israel and Washington said in the event that other efforts were not effective, the possibility of military action would not be ruled out.

It’s puzzling to some that Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, a professor from the Chinese National Defense University, said China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third World War.

Professor Xia Ming: “Zhang Zhaozhong said that not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs. To some extent though, this would be completely ridiculous to encourage”

Professor Xia Ming pointed out that the United States and Western societies may deal with Iran by a method of “Jasmine Revolution”, similar to what happened in Libya. From the perspective of the Libya model, NATO could not possibly involve itself in large-scale military action, and it would be impossible to start a new war.

In fact, a senior European diplomat with anonymity in Tehran said that the Iranian government was actually very worried about a military strike. Analysts also say that ordinary people don’t worship their leaders so much anymore.

But Professor Xia Ming said that the CCP regime itself is facing a much bigger crisis than Iran. The CCP regime not only faces challenges from Southeast Asia, the South China Sea, South Asia countries and so on, but also faces the pressure from America for the RMB exchange rate, export, and human rights issues, as well as the pressure of domestic issues meanwhile.

Professor Xia Ming says : “China is facing pressure from America. Meanwhile, current domestic pressure is also very considerable. In particular, we can see in civil society, the challenge to the Chinese government and resistance forces are growing. Therefore, the Chinese government is indeed facing the arrival of a big power shift in the 18th session. So, China may express a tougher diplomatic voice.
On the one hand, it is a reaction to pressure from America. On the other hand, it needs to meet the demand of domestic nationalist groups.

Russia is another ally of Iran, with similar policy to that of China. Toward Iran.

  1. Oh, dear. Just prophecy being fulfilled. They say the Euphrates River is the lowest it has been in decades, according to the very old men that are still living in Iraq. This is the way the Chinese army is going to come to be in the Final Clash. They are going to walk the Euphrates River to Armageddon. Just be prepared. Jesus is coming back very, very soon!


  2. WWIII coming?

    This huge probleme.


    • Russia is not strong enough to be a major player and Iran has been crippled by the American embargo’s, China is the major player, and from what ive seen of their reactions to North Korea’s power play, NK could become a close friend. I think the decision made to move troops into Australia is a stupid folly, its all a show of who has the biggest guns and the most friends to back them up in a fight. China is expanding greatly and despite what people think, they are not going to be slowed by the western worlds economic crisis, as their own market can support itself from within, not ti mention they own 35% (if memory serves me well) of the worlds coal mining operations, and have stakes in nearly every major company across the globe. They’ll have no problem keeping their country afloat…

      i think however that this will possibly be another cold war event, where the kettle almost boils over before one side backs down. to sum it up this is really just a game of chicken and the two big boys on the block are going head to head. The current world power (USA, EU(which is falling apart)) versus the new upcoming contender (China, + possible allies).

      this could take years more to come to fruition. but im of the opinion that this is all going down soon, its all a game of chess, and the pieces are on the board….
