FBI Director Christopher Wray discusses the threat China poses to U.S. economic and national security during a July 7, 2020 video event at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C.
“The Chinese Regime and the Scope of Its Ambitions
To understand this threat and how we must act to respond to it, the American people should remember three things.
First: We need to be clear-eyed about the scope of the Chinese government’s ambition. China—the Chinese Communist Party—believes it is in a generational fight to surpass our country in economic and technological leadership.
That is sobering enough. But it’s waging this fight not through legitimate innovation, not through fair and lawful competition, and not by giving their citizens the freedom of thought and speech and creativity that we treasure here in the United States. Instead, China is engaged in a whole-of-state effort to become the world’s only superpower by any means necessary.”
From the article (Highlites are mine)
I’ve been talking about China and its ambitions for some time now and this warning from the FBI Director is coming at a time that I’ve been waiting for bullets to start flying. There are just too many theaters of operations in which China is poised to start something and I’ve been surprised that it hasn’t already happened. Everyday something new crosses the wires and soon we will be at the Point of No Return.
And other seems to think likewise –
