The China Threat - Revisited - Part II

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." I Thessalonians 5:3

In this article, we will continue to look at the nation of China and their future threat to the United States.

1. Recent History of China

An article titled “China Sends 71 Warplanes, 7 Ships Toward Taiwan”(Note 3) states

“China's military sent 71 planes and seven ships toward Taiwan in a 24-hour display of force directed at the island, Taiwan's defense ministry said Monday, after China expressed anger at Taiwan-related provisions in a U.S. annual defense spending bill passed on Saturday. China's military harassment of self-ruled Taiwan, which it claims is its own territory, has intensified in recent years, and the Communist Party's People's Liberation Army has sent planes or ships toward the island on a near-daily basis. Between 6 a.m. Sunday and 6 a.m. Monday, 47 of the Chinese planes crossed the median of the Taiwan Strait, an unofficial boundary once tacitly accepted by both sides, according to Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense. Among the planes China sent towards Taiwan were 18 J-16 fighter jets, 11 J-1 fighters, 6 Su-30 fighters and drones. Taiwan said it monitored the Chinese moves through its land-based missile systems, as well as on its own navy vessels.”

2. China's Partner Russia

In 2001, during the visit of Chinese President Jiang Zemin to Moscow with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, both countries signed the Sino-Russian Friendship and Cooperation Treaty. An article titled "Major Consequences of Chinese-Russian Treaty"(Note 4) says

"During the visit of Chinese President Jiang Zemin to Moscow this week, Jiang and Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin signed a Sino-Russian Friendship and Cooperation Treaty. This treaty, with an effective period of 30 years (20 years, from other data), will have grave consequences for prospects of war and peace around Taiwan and, probably, in all of East Asia - if not the entire world. First of all, the treaty will formalize and codify the strategic axis of Beijing-Moscow, i.e., an alliance directed against the United States and its close allies. The signing of the treaty will have several important aspects: There is enough reliable information that the treaty will contain open or hidden articles on Sino-Russian joint "resistance to aggression" against either of these two countries. This means that any attempt of the U.S. to defend Taiwan in the event of a People's Republic of China (PRC) attack on that island will be considered as aggression against the PRC, and the Russian army will come to the aid of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA)............. In mid-February 2001, Russian strategic forces, including ground-based ICBMs and strategic submarines, carried out a "mock attack" against U.S. troops within the framework of joint Sino-Russian military actions during the Taiwan conflict. These preparations should be regarded with extreme seriousness. Between 1998 and 2001, the military expenditures of Russia, in comparable prices, almost doubled. These funds are being used mainly to support and revive the major components of Russia's strategic potential, including space warfare.........After signing the new Friendship and Cooperation Treaty, Russia will greatly boost its supply to the PLA of advanced conventional weaponry -fighters, attack helicopters, military transports, electronic warfare (EW) aircraft, diesel-electric submarines, destroyers equipped with advanced anti- ship missiles, air-defense missile systems of all kinds, and land-forces weapons. The same is true for the corresponding weapon-manufacturing technology. According to early data, in the first half of 2001, Russia's volume of weapon technology deliveries to China was at least two times more than in the first half of 2000. These deliveries will significantly expand in the 18 months after signing of the treaty this month. Moreover, after the treaty is signed, Russia (per agreements at the eighth Sino-Russian Military-Technological Cooperation Commission meeting in Moscow in February, with PLA Lt. Gen. Zhang Wannian as the head of the Chinese delegation) will also provide the PLA with TU-22 long-range bombers, state-of-the-art attack nuclear submarines, new-generation cruise missiles, and advanced EW and space warfare munitions. This will result in accelerated growth and qualitative upgrading of the PLA's combat potential, most of which will be focused into a "striking fist" around Taiwan. No illusions should remain here: After signing of the treaty, the entire Russian defense industry will be at the unlimited disposal of the PLA."

Do you understand what is being planned against America? When our nation goes to defend Taiwan against China, the Russians will attack us in response.

Memory Verses

As Christians, if we want to live in victory, and if we want to be able to share the Word Of God with others, we must know the Word of God ourselves. Let's see what the Bible says about this. "They word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psalm 119:11. "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:7. "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed." John 8:31. We encourage you to put the following scriptures in your heart: Joshua 24:21, 24, John 9:25-26, Judges 2:4-5, John 10:41-42, Ruth 4:21-22. Use only the Old King James version of the Holy Bible.
