America Must Contain and Confront China after Its Capture of Hong Kong
Communist China’s takeover of Hong Kong proves one thing: The People’s Republic of China is a fundamentally expansionist power. Like the Soviet Union before it, Beijing seeks nothing short of domination – starting with its neighbors, but certainly not stopping there. According to FBI director Christopher Wray, China is intent on becoming “the world’s only superpower — by any means necessary.” That puts China on a collision course with the United States (and also explains why the FBI opens a new counterespionage case investigation involving China every ten hours). These are the early days of a new cold war, and America owes it to its citizens, its allies and the world to strive for victory.
