Clifford D. May’s “The China Syndrome” is spot on. Many Americans, and Washington decision-makers, still mistakenly view China as a trading partner rather than a geopolitical adversary. Mr. May is correct that our “friends” are singularly focused on usurping America’s First World position. This reality was echoed in a recent Mark Levin interview with National Security and Defense Strategy expert Michael Pillsbury (Director of the Center of Chinese Strategy at the Hudson Institute) who said of the Chinese:
“The key source of economic growth is science and technology [also known as technology-based planning]. … It’s a comprehensive approach that to become number one in the world we’ve got to get hold of what they call the innovation technology base. Find out the most dramatic, profit-making technologies in the world and get them—by one means or another.”
