At the propaganda level, the current global conflicts are
the result of the clashes between the universal
Western value, that is about a democracy based on animal
instinct, free market and money
politics, and the rest of the world, which have a diversity
of different heritages, may or may not being more civilized
than that of the jungle West.
Yet when you scratch the surface of the phenomenon, you'll
find the real subject in dispute is the distribution of the
resource, and the very resource in question at the moment
Therefore lots of efforts have been put by many well-intended
people into finding alternative fuels, hoping to remove the
firewood from under the pot of hot dispute.
But some more observant minds warn that the resource is
still not the root issue in the struggle. It is the desire
to rule the entire human race that drives the "chosen
ones" to make the energy shortage largely caused by
unfair distribution a dominant problem for the mankind.
Hence even when alternative energies do have been discovered,
the hot stirring pot won't cool down, since new firewood
will be added to heat the stove. And this new firewood has
already been chosen by the "chosen ones": It is
A report drafted by U.S. Defence Intelligence Agency was
released on 23 March 2012, claiming water shortage
will spark global unrest in a near future, just like what
fossil oil does to the world today.
The document reflects U.S. regime's sheer determination
on dictating the world economy by seizing the control of
the resources, be they oil, water, or something else .
Thus we heard the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announcing
the formation of a new public-private partnership, the U.S.
Water Partnership (USWP), that is designed to facilitate
the private corporations to purchase the water supply system
worldwide, particularly from the developing countries, with
the help and on the behalf of the U.S. government.
The way to achieve this goal is to push for privatisation
of the public water and sanitation sectors, while at the
same time calling for globalisation to allow the US acquisition
of the water supplies in foreign nations through US multinational
And the multinationals that joined the global water war
include Rockefeller Foundation (a CIA backed organization
that is devoted to finance the rebels in the countries that
Washington deems deserving of being taken down, such as China
and Russia), Africare (a
joint venture of Bill Gates and Monsanto), the Coca-Cola
Company, Procter & Gamble, Ford Motor Company and so
As some observers pointed
out: The partnership marks a pivotal step forward in the
WTO's push for the privatisation of the world’s water supplies,
a program that has been met with resistance in many countries
so far. In 2007, 130 groups from 48 countries decided not
to support the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility
(PPIAF), a highly controversial element in the
World Bank’s water privatisation plan, since they no
longer believed the plan would help the poor to access the
Yet some people chose to cooperate with the sinister water
agenda of the WTO and the World Banks, such as Chinese administration
headed by Premier
China is a water poor nation. Except along the eastern
coastlines, particularly in the South Yangtze delta, a large
portion of the land in China is historically drought area,
with two thirds of cities reporting water shortage problems.
According to what was revealed on the China's state-run
television by Wang Xixin, a researcher with the Standing
Committee of the National People's Congress, China spends
1 trillions yuans each year just on free travel and free
meal for the government officials, which amounts at 60% of
the total administration fee. Yet we learned that Chinese
government does not have enough fund to repair the aging
water system in many old urban settings which has resulted
in massive loss of already scarce clean water resource. Instead,
Chinese authority turns it into an excuse to sell the water
supply sector to, in most cases, the powerful
multinational corporations from the West.
The following is the observation made by World
Food and Water Watch regarding the world wide water
"These private water companies try to persuade cash-strapped
cities and towns to relinquish control over their valuable
public water and sewer systems.
"Many communities that experimented with privatisation
have found that it often results in worse service at a higher
"After taking over a municipal water system, water
companies aggressively hike water rates by an average of
about 10 percent a year, adding hundreds of dollars onto
the typical annual household bill."
And this is exactly what is happening in many Chinese cities
However, poor service and high cost are still not the most
serious part in the problem caused by the privatisation and
foreign ownership of a nation's water resource.
It is the nation's survival that is in real stake, as he
who controls water controls food production; he who controls
food production controls life.
Here is what the UN's Human Development Report has to say
about the privatisation, globalisation and the water war: "Globalisation
is boosting a worldwide wave of privatisation of the water
supply and sanitation sector. Meanwhile, World Trade Organization
agreements and liberalization of exports and imports are
promoting the agribusiness Transnational Corporations (TNCs)
to purchase agricultural land all around the world, and it
would not be a long time before few TNCs may dominate large
portion of the global food production," (hdr.undp.org/en/nhdr/networks/replies/158.pdf)
State Council has allowed the local governments to
sell the public water sectors to foreign companies, Chinese
Premier Wen and Vice
Premier Li do have a case to answer. By participating
in Washington's water war, they are not only hurting the
interest of the 99% of people in China, but 99% of people
around the world.
