This year, China has increased its military spending by 14% over the spending level of the previous year, and a PLA strategist has recently published a book which calls for China to fight and defeat the US, adopt an aggressive posture and become the world’s chief superpuissance.
And that’s exactly the policy China is now implementing.
That book proved that China is a sworn enemy of the US, and that it is a threat to the US.
Huge conventional threats to the US, such as China and North Korea, DO exist and must be countered. But American liberals naively believe that China is a friend of the US, and are conducting a policy of appeasement towards China while simoultaneously gutting the US military so that it won’t be able to fight the PLA.
