Director Of National Intelligence Warns: "China Poses The Greatest Threat To America"
Experts are coming forward to warn America about the serious threat that is China. They are hoping to make Americans and politicians alike aware of the need to prepare for what seems to be an upcoming conflict with China. Far East Expert Gordon Chang claimed that China is looking to "topple America's government" and now an even bigger name has come forward to warn us, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe.
"As Director of National Intelligence, I am entrusted with access to more intelligence than any member of the U.S. government other than the president. I oversee the intelligence agencies, and my office produces the President’s Daily Brief detailing the threats facing the country. If I could communicate one thing to the American people from this unique vantage point, it is that the People’s Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom world-wide since World War II.
The intelligence is clear: Beijing intends to dominate the U.S. and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically. Many of China’s major public initiatives and prominent companies offer only a layer of camouflage to the activities of the Chinese Communist Party.
I call its approach of economic espionage “rob, replicate and replace.” China robs U.S. companies of their intellectual property, replicates the technology, and then replaces the U.S. firms in the global marketplace.
Take Sinovel. In 2018 a federal jury found the Chinese wind-turbine manufacturer guilty of stealing trade secrets from American Superconductor. Penalties were imposed but the damage was done. The theft resulted in the U.S. company losing more than $1 billion in shareholder value and cutting 700 jobs. Today Sinovel sells wind turbines world-wide as if it built a legitimate business through ingenuity and hard work rather than theft.
The FBI frequently arrests Chinese nationals for stealing research-and-development secrets."
"The U.S. government estimates that China’s intellectual-property theft costs America as much as $500 billion a year, or between $4,000 and $6,000 per U.S. household."
"China also steals sensitive U.S. defense technology to fuel President Xi Jinping’s aggressive plan to make China the world’s foremost military power. U.S. intelligence shows that China has even conducted human testing on members of the People’s Liberation Army in hope of developing soldiers with biologically enhanced capabilities. There are no ethical boundaries to Beijing’s pursuit of power."
Ratcliffe has directed more attention to China and is hoping other countries will follow suit. But there is no telling as to whether or not other countries will trust our intelligence. If you look back to just earlier this year Italy thought we were being xenophobic when Trump placed a travel ban on China due to COVID. Italy had a hug an Asian day instead. Hopefully, other countries get with the program before it is too late, as China is looking to become the world power and unlike us they are not interested in human rights or freedom.
