One of the world’s best national-security analysts, Bill Gertz, reported that the 2014 U.S. Quadrennial Defense Review includes a warning on page 80 of an 88-page document from Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey that the risk of a conflict in Asia is dangerously increasing. The worst part of that prediction is that he says our coming conflict with China will probably be waged on United States territory because distance and the Pacific Ocean will no longer protect us against China’s new weapons. Communist China is working hard to develop new niche weapons systems designed to attack us in space and in the so-called “cyber domain.”
We face a new power relationship: a weakening American military versus a rising Communist Chinese power, and that has “dire implications for global peace and stability.” This isn’t any accident; Obama has made clear that his goal from the get-go has been to spread around world power internationally just as he told Joe the Plumber that he wanted to spread around our wealth. The notion that China is not a threat is a common propaganda theme based on ancient Chinese strategic teachings. One of their people called Tai Kung taught: convince your enemy that you post no threat and thereby lull him into complacency before advancing for the kill. The U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Martin Dempsey recently said that the risk of a conflict in Asia is dangerously increasing. And remember, China’s doing it all on U.S. money.
