Although the cataclysmic 20th century witnessed the end of ages of empires from human civilization’s beginning, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) still views the world in that backward way. It wants China to finally “rule the world” by economic, political and military conquest. Michael Pillsbury’s book, “The Hundred Year Marathon” spells out their strategy to defeat America and dominate the world.
The CCP’s imperialistic designs are based on the Chinese chronicle, “Stratagems of the Warring States” about the five centuries of political and military struggles between several warlord states that ended in 221 BC with unification under the Qin dynasty. Lessons from that period dictate their worldview.
One strategy called an “Assassin’s Mace” is any secret weapon that enables victory over a stronger opponent by attacking its weak points, not its strengths. What better weapon than creating and unleashing Covid-19 on the world, especially America? They maliciously, callously used their own infected people as disease vectors to send into other countries while containing the contagion there. But President Trump stopped the flights from China and then Europe before they could achieve the maximum damage.
The CCP has the same totalitarian, supremacist objectives of empire as Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan did. They see themselves as the real “master race.” And our radical Left revolutionaries are their “useful idiot” collaborators. It’s 1938 again, and we are in a world of trouble. We need President Trump’s strong leadership to confront the crises we face - not Obama-style feckless appeasement.
