The mainstream media is now warning that the Chinese spy balloon debacle is a sign that the country is preparing for a war that could start “at any time.” A war analyst told Fox News Digital that United States policy has “created the conditions for history’s next great war.”
Gordon Chang is apparently an “expert” on U.S./Chinese relations and he claims that the ballon situation is showing us that China is preparing to go to war with the U.S. “The #ChineseSpyBalloon shows us that #China is preparing to go to war,” Gordon Chang, a columnist, and author who has written several books on China tweeted on Friday following the discovery of a Chinese surveillance balloon over Montana the day before.
Chang pointed to a recent move from Chinese President Xi Jinping shortly after he was appointed to his precedent-breaking third term as General Secretary at the National Congress in October when he appointed what is being referred to as the “war cabinet.”
“China is preparing to go to war,” Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” said. “It’s engaged in extremely provocative and dangerous activities around its periphery, and war could come at any time and at any place.”
Chang told Fox News Digital that decades of inaction to combat Chinese aggression in Taiwan and the South China Sea and across the globe have created an atmosphere where China does not fear repercussions for acts of aggression, such as the spy balloon that has been floating over the United States for days.
“The United States is so much more powerful than China from almost every perspective and yet the Chinese don’t view it this way,” Chang said. “The Chinese view that they can do whatever they want because we have told them that they can do that. The Chinese have engaged in a number of activities that violate our sovereignty, and some of those activities constitute acts of war, and we did not respond. And it’s not just not responding in February 2023, it’s not responding over the course of decades. So, of course, the Chinese have this mentality right now. We have created the conditions for history’s next great war.”
China confirmed on Friday that it is the owner of a surveillance balloon that it claimed is a civilian research craft that was blown far off course by prevailing winds, adding that it regrets the incident.
Sadly, war is brewing and people seem all too content to be on the side of the sociopaths starting another major conflict. As Michael Snyder accurately stated:
The anti-China sentiment is reaching a fever pitch in Washington, and the anti-American sentiment is reaching a fever pitch in Beijing. We really are on the brink of the unthinkable, and once the missiles start flying there will be no going back.
