Chinese checkers -- or Chinese checkmate?
Another outstanding article from The American Thinker and this author who is an expert on China. I hope the administration is on top of this, although I fear that there are many of the old "China Hands" who insiston seeing China as a "complex" and "inscrutable" place of great subtlety and nuance which doesn't really harbor ill intent or hegemonic ambitions. If you follow the news on China, it is clear this author is correct. China is positioning itself, globally and strategically, for facing down and challenging the United States even to the point of eventual military conflict. But before then they will launch many proxy wars at us on many fronts, supporting terrorist regimes such as North Korea, Iran and others, using cyberwarfare to undermine our economy, not to mention monopolizing oil imports which have already raised world gas prices to record highs. Witness their recent stated intention of launching a moon mission. Space weapons anyone?
China is taking careful, deliberate and well-coordinated action on a global scale to advance relations with strategically positioned countries possessing both the natural resources and influence to support its ascension in the international community. To accelerate the growth of its power and influence on the world stage, China has eagerly embraced the concept of Global Strategic Positioning or GSP, as the ?gold standard? of its foreign policy for the 21st century.
