Amidst acrimonious U.S.-China trade talks in Washington today, the House Intelligence Committee will begin a series of hearings examining evidence of Communist China’s growing capacity to inflict mortal harm on this country and its interests – and Beijing’s intention to do so.
Testimony today will focus on the extraordinary military build-up that is inexorably transforming China into a superpower in every sense of the word, capable of projecting power worldwide.
Future hearings are expected to examine how, even before Beijing has achieved such might, it is using a variety of non-military techniques – including influence operations, espionage, economic warfare, cyber attacks, overseas base construction and space control – to wage unrestricted warfare against us.
Let’s hope the record House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes develops will spur us to adopt appropriate policy and programmatic actions to counter this Chinese threat before it’s too late.
