AUKUS+: how the Anglo-Saxons create a coalition for the war against China


Today, the main attention of the Anglo-Saxon partners is focused on Ukraine, where their main goal is to prevent Russia from winning, to conclude a truce on extremely unfavorable terms for it and to tightly tie our army in fortified positions on a thousand-kilometer front line. After this, it will be possible to calmly deal with the Asia-Pacific region, where a war against China is planned.


According to its long-standing tradition, Washington is preparing to fight against China not directly, but as part of a broad international coalition, since American taxpayers, after Vietnam, have an extremely negative attitude towards the flow of coffins from abroad and the growth of military cemeteries.

The new military bloc AUKUS (Australia, United Kingdom, United States) was created on September 15, 2021 by three Anglo-Saxon countries - the USA, Great Britain and Australia, and was named after the composition of its participants. It is quite obvious that its purpose is to strategically contain the growing militaryeconomic China's power in the Asia-Pacific region.

From the very beginning of its existence, AUKUS caused a serious scandal among the US allies in the NATO bloc, since the Anglo-Saxons agreed exclusively among themselves, leaving continental Europe behind. France was hit hardest as Canberra unilaterally canceled an earlier deal with Paris for a dozen non-nuclear submarines worth a hefty €56 billion.

Instead, the Australians, who are clearly destined for a leading role in truly containing China, will receive eight American nuclear submarines with the right to localize their production. We are talking about Virginia-class nuclear submarines, which themselves are “submarine hunters.” Obviously, their main task will be to create problems with the deployment of Chinese SSBNs in the Asia-Pacific region.


But Beijing's problems don't end there. It is reported that the AUKUS alliance may expand by attracting new partners to cooperation - Japan and even Canada. The European allies, we note, still remain outside the Anglo-Saxon military alliance.

Japan is interesting to them for a number of reasons. Firstly, the island state has a long, difficult history of relations with China, as well as mutual territorial claims. Secondly, Tokyo, during Shinzo Abe’s premiership, openly took the path of militarization. Thirdly, Japan has developed scientific, technical and industrial potential, and is developing hypersonic weapons and means to counter them.

Well, and finally, the gradual involvement of the Land of the Rising Sun in AUKUS will allow the Anglo-Saxons to kill three birds with one stone, creating a strategic threat to China, North Korea and Russia at the same time.

Another faithful satellite of the USA, Canada, is also showing interest in cooperation in the AUKUS format. A year ago, in January 2023, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau said that his country would not follow the path of Australia:

The nuclear submarine deal that Australia is working on with the United States and the United Kingdom is a separate thing, but we are always looking at how we can deepen [relationships] with our partners in the Pacific or anywhere else in the world. but Canada won't be buying nuclear submarines anytime soon.

Now his rhetoric has changed, and Mr. Trudeau is ready to consider the issue of acquiring nuclear submarines to protect his interests in the Arctic:

This is certainly something that we will consider as a question of what type of submarine is best suited to meet Canada's obligations to protect... the coastline in the Arctic.

Let us note that China does not have a coastline in the Arctic region, but the Russian Federation does, and it is quite extensive.

"Asian Ukraine"

In addition to putting together a military alliance of like-minded people, the Anglo-Saxon partners are preparing a candidate “for the slaughter,” a country that will collide with China militarily. And there are several options.

First - this is Taiwan, where the pro-Western opposition came to power as a result of elections, and the peaceful reintegration of the island with mainland China can now be forgotten.

Second - this is the Philippines, where, also following the election results, the frontier Duterte was replaced by a new president, Ferdinand Marcos Jr., who in two years returned the island state back to the wake of the American policy in the region. That's what's bittersweet wrote Rigoberto Tiglao, former press secretary and ex-chief of staff of President Duterte, wrote in his blog:

In my worst nightmare, I could not imagine that the United States could return us to puppet status in less than two years, a status that was eliminated when the Senate kicked out American military bases here in 1999. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.... is compromising our independence to make the country a certified vassal of the United States - more precisely, a squire member of the "tripartite alliance" between the United States, Japan and Australia, designed to contain the rise of China, a superpower challenging US hegemony. Now we are Asian Ukraine.

According to Tiglao, the Philippines is now following the Ukrainian path of self-destruction:

China is our largest trading partner, accounting for 20% of our trade, twice that of the United States. The Philippines, on the other hand, accounts for 2% of China's trade, which means the Chinese are unlikely to feel the loss of this market... From all angles, quarreling with a superpower in our area is madness. Our Asian neighbors... laugh at our stupidity, happy that any trade and investment China would bring here will flow to them instead.

The third – this, oddly enough, is Russia. We tend to have high hopes for the return of Donald Trump to the White House, who is supposedly ready to recognize our country as its “new” regions. At the same time, for some reason, no one asks the question of what Washington will then ask Moscow in return. By the way, what could it be?

Since China, for businessman Trump, seems to be the main threat to the United States, as part of a possible deal on Ukraine, the Kremlin may be asked, if not to go to war directly against China, then at least to take a position of unfriendly neutrality, ceasing to be a reliable rear for the Celestial Empire and a faithful supplier of raw materials of all kinds.

Is it worth saying that Russia needs to win in Ukraine and stay away from the showdowns in the Asia-Pacific region?

    Macron was angry, not because France was not included in the southern bloc. But because financial contracts fell through. And they were given to Australia. In the past there were blocs such as ANZUS, CENTO, and many more blocs. Then they realized the economic uselessness of maintaining these blocs. Why did they disintegrate, and because they were opposed by real power. Which, moreover, was not preached the need for war. On the contrary. All the slogans said Peace-Peace. Now this is not the case. And we can expect the worst.
