Once again the Chinese regime has complained through its mouthpiece, the Global Times and in a recent article it called the U.S. Defense Strategy obsolete. Apparently, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) expected President Joe Biden to change the foreign policy of his predecessor President Donald Trump, but nothing of the sort has happened and the tension between the two countries continues.
The Times accused the U.S. of launching a Cold War against China and losing its head in its quest to repress and contain the CCP.
It said that the Biden administration is making a mistake by continuing the foreign policy implemented by Trump.
Remember that the Trump administration applied a heavy hand to the CCP with measures and restrictions to curb the advance of the economic, diplomatic, military, and technological power of the Chinese communist regime.
The Trump administration intervened to counter Chinese communist expansion in the trade war with the Asian giant. It imposed trade tariffs on Chinese products, banned TikTok to prevent Infiltration and large-scale espionage, manipulation of public opinion, as well as trade disputes over military financing at the expense of American capital, among other limitations.
The Biden administration has not changed the strategy. China is more interested in dominance than in coexistence, a premise that governed Trump’s foreign policy.
The current U.S. national security strategy made the U.S. position on the CCP very clear by calling it a global threat.
Apparently, the Chinese regime expected Biden to change his government’s position and that would explain the disappointment expressed by the Global Times. On the contrary, the Biden administration did not back down and tensions increased further when U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan in August.
China considered the visit a provocation, and responded with four days of military exercises restricting the use and safety of airspace.
The new U.S. defense strategy reaffirmed protecting itself from attack that it describes as aggressive and destabilizing. It is the autocratic power of the communist regime.
At the same time, the Biden administration seems to be more than cautious in the report with regard to the concrete action it will take in relation to this attack and to the serious allegations it makes against the Chinese communist regime:
“The PRC, by contrast, is the only competitor with both the intent to reshape the international order and, increasingly, the economic, diplomatic, military, and technological power to advance that objective.”
“It is using its technological capacity and increasing influence over
international institutions to create more permissive conditions for its own authoritarian model, and to mold global technology use and norms to privilege its interests and values.”
The White House does show signs of developing concrete measures to safeguard its security and counter an adversary.
In describing them precisely, the U.S. demonstrates a keen awareness of the tactics applied and abuses committed by the CCP as part of the strategy of world domination:
“Beijing frequently uses its economic power to coerce countries. It benefits from the openness of the international economy while limiting access to its domestic market, and it seeks to make the world more dependent on the PRC while reducing its own dependence on the world. The PRC is also investing in a military that is rapidly modernizing, increasingly capable in the Indo-Pacific, and growing in strength and reach globally – all while seeking to erode U.S. alliances in the
region and around the world.”
Meanwhile, the perverse strategy of the regime established by Mao continues its course outside the Great Wall. And we should not forget that what the CCP has gained inside the country comes at a great loss to others, especially dissidents, and that the model seeks expansion.
There is no doubt that the Chinese communist regime wants to win “the contest to write the rules of the road and shape the relationships that govern global affairs is playing out in every region and across economics, technology, diplomacy, development, security, and global governance.”
Italy’s new leadership declares anti-CCP stance
Now, under the new leadership of Giorgia Meloni, Italy is seeking to limit the economic expansion of the CCP and its newly elected prime minister has spoken out openly against the Chinese regime.
Meloni stated that – under her leadership – Italy would not be “the weak link” in the Western alliance, referring to communist expansionist ambitions in a changing international context, with Russia and the CCP challenging the West.
The Italian prime minister is not the only one in Europe to declare herself against the CCP. Polish Deputy Minister of Agriculture Janusz Kowalski said, “Congratulations Giorgia Meloni, together we will defeat the cynical and spoiled Eurocrats who demolish the European Union, break treaties, destroy our civilization and promote the LGBT agenda!”
Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs José Manuel Albares, pointed out that at this moment there are “two models that are confronting each other” in Europe, the model of European construction and another model, which is an authoritarian model, referring to the communist model.
The barking of the regime’s spokesman only emphasizes what the world already knows. The United States is giving the world something to talk about and its report states very precisely the purpose, the means, and the direction that the old strategy of domination of communist China is taking.
