The United States had better start taking the threat from China seriously; economically and militarily.
Last I checked, Beijing is ruled by a communist totalitarian regime. Why is anyone doing business with them?
The Chinese have engaged in cyber attacks, spying, economic espionage, and actual threatening of U.S. Naval vessels. Yet these former officials and the Feds think giving them money, technology, and contributing to the Chinese threat are good ideas.
Just some reminders of how batshit crazy that is:
China builds artificial islands and militarizes them.
China announces that its nuclear submarines can hit the U.S. with missiles.
A senior Chinese officer declared that China should ‘topple U.S. dominance’. Whether China can actually pull this off is a matter of great debate, but the fact that they have their claws sunk so deeply into us economically should be a wake-up call.
Joe Biden has also made some shady deals with China.
Propping up a communist totalitarian regime with capitalist dollars is suicidal. China is an enemy and should be treated as such instead of having the privilege of being a business associate. Doing business with a communist country will not transform it into a freedom-nurturing society. There will come a day when all of the money we pour into China will come back to bite us in the ass. You can bet on it.
