Such statements have been been publicized in the United States in growing numbers throughout the past decade.
But on May 10, in its annual book for 2010, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sweden) published a table that showed every country’s percentage of “world military expenditure,” that is, the international value of “everything military” produced in the world.
Let me take five examples from that table: United States, 46.5% of global military expenditure; next ten world countries, combined, 20.7%; Russia, 3.5%; UK, 3.8%; China (PRC), 6.6%.
Taking advantage of the fact that such reliable studies are not readily available to the general public, the “People’s Republic of China” uses the easily available absurd mess of media misinformation outside the purview of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute to pose as a military power equal of the United States.
It is an undeniable fact that the population of the “People’s Republic of China” exceeds that of the United States by about 1 billion people. If PRC uses this advantage by secretly training those people into producers and users of the latest weapons, the West will perish, since an army of that size never existed in the world.
The accuracy of the studies of the global military performance of the world countries must be as scientifically reliable as that provided by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. Only then will it be possible to predict relatively safe periods versus dangerous political upheavals on the global map and place them on the global calendar.
Armed with such scientifically reliable authentic information, as opposed to the distorted misinformation provided daily by the media, the free countries can continue to engage in their creative and educational life during the relatively safe periods, never at the same time losing their vigilance as to the eventuality of a dangerous event and taking necessary measures to defend themselves. And this knowledge of the world authentic military situation is absolutely indispensable for the free countries to win the global struggle for survival.
The unfree countries are based on permanent and ubiquitous vigilance, and their main enemies are their slaves, whom the PRC propaganda describes as the happiest people on earth and as heroes, infinitely devoted to their owners.
In contrast to the slave countries, which have compulsory military service and are permanently vigilant, the free countries need to know which danger threatens them as of this day in order to act accordingly.
Yes, the “People’s Republic of China” threatens the existence of the free countries, but it may take China a certain number of years to draft their “extra” billion people for war, initiated by PRC against some or many or all free countries.
The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s study mentioned at the beginning of this column is a good example of scientifically reliable assessment of the global military situation.
For its owners, an unfree country is more profitable than is a free country, with its free enterprise, employing free people, who have to be paid according to the value of their work. The slaves, on the other hand, cost only as much as to keep them alive and working.
The absolutism of today’s slave societies surpasses in its ruthlessness the historical absolutism as we know it.
Like any absolutism in Western Europe, the Russian absolutism kept on softening, developing toward constitutional monarchy, in the middle of which process it was overthrown and replaced with Stalin’s absolutism, more absolutist than the worst kind of any absolutism that had ever existed.
What’s the moral? The slaves of today’s slave countries also need to be studied, for slavery is not just a mechanism, but a life of many lives. Slavery is dangerous to the free countries. But it is also dangerous to the owners of the slave countries.
The slave army is unreliable, and if there arises a physical opportunity to do so, any part of it may decide to join its enemy: a free country.
The scientific method of research in assessing the global military capabilities of all countries as undertaken by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute must lie at the basis of all studies of offensive and defensive forces in the world.
