Tianjin Aftermath.
The conjecture that “the fires at Tianjin will probably burn for months” proved to be incorrect.
The latest media reports of fires at the site were less than a month after the August 12th cataclysm that left 173 dead.

Blast Site Completely Cleared.

This week a video has emerged that shows the clean up of the site and it has made great advances. The site has been stripped of everything it seems, all objects and a huge amount of soil have been removed.. The earth is placed in sealed white bags, the debris is placed in black bags.
There are still tentative plans to turn the site into a park that will double as a monument to those lost.

Appetite for Destruction.

The US Defense Secretary recently stated that the US Navy were planning to sail in the region of the South China sea reefs China is building and claiming.
The entire Western suggestion that China has any interest or intention in closing the region to shipping is complete nonsense.
These shipping lanes are central to China’s economy, the idea of China closing the South China sea route is the typical trope that the shills of the Empire try to impose upon the public.
It is the way the project of World domination has been masked for decades..
Ashton Carter is emerging as just about the “best” US Defense Secretary since Rumsfeld as he has managed to threaten war with both China and Russia in recent weeks!

Struggling to adjust to new realities.

The war party in the US is disconsolate over China’s actions in turning reefs into islands in the South China sea and Russians killing US backed terrorists in Syria.

This seems completely irrational but there is a reason

They do not care about the South China Sea but the Chinese moves signal the end of US domination of the Asia pacific region.

Likewise they do not really care that al Nusra Front jihadists they and their allies sponsored are being killed by Russia in Syria, it is the fact that this also signals the loss of US power in the Middle East that is so upsetting and that is why the current situation is so dangerous

China despite many rumours and credible reports to the contrary, does not seem to have joined the Russian operation in Syria although given the opaque nature of the way the Chinese Government operates this assessment may be proven incorrect in the near future.

It seems that the truth about Tianjin, the cause and the perpetrators may never emerge.
The same veil will probably hide any possible acts of retribution for the massacre.

China’s  Shandong province suffered a third mysterious explosion in less than two months when a chemical plant was rocked by a massive blast on Monday night. The blast took place at a factory in Lijin. The blast follows major explosions in Shandong in mid- July and on August  22nd  along with the mammoth Tianjin event.of August 12th.

It is being reported that one person died in the blast and nine more were injured.

“The Dongying News website — run by the Dongying city government — said the factory in Lijin county in Shandong province exploded at 11:22 p.m. Monday and the fire was brought under control about five hours later”

The Factory was operated by Runxing Chemical company which is a subsidiary of Runxing Group an apparently small player witha quoted capitalisation of $200 million. .

The proliferation of explosions could be read either as a sign of corruption and inadequate safety standards or as sabotage. Looking back at the recent history of Shandong I noted that oil pipeline explosions are a common occurrence, along with industrial disasters of many varieties but these exploding chemical plants appear to be a recent phenomenon whatever the cause.
