During an appearance on American Family Radio this week, Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families said he doesn’t believe the current leadership in the White House has the will, the strength, or the understanding to protect the country if forced into a high-stakes war with China.
“A war with Communist China will determine which nation rules the world, in a sense,” he stated. “And experts are telling us, if we’ll listen, that we’re likely to lose a couple of aircraft carriers within the first week of the war – with each one of those aircraft carriers having 5,000 young men and women on them. Is the United States ready for that?”
And Bauer warned America’s military leaders better understand that the next war will not be fought by the rules it has been holding itself to in recent years.
“If the Communist Chinese get into a war with the United States, nothing will restrain them – nothing! Absolutely nothing! They’re an officially godless regime,” he exclaimed. “This would a serious war with a serious nation that believes with all its heart and soul that the future belongs to them.”
As AFN reported earlier this month, a four-star U.S. Air Force general is predicting war with China by 2025 over an invasion of Taiwan. The memo from General Mike Minihan was intended for officers of the Air Mobility Command, which provides transport and refueling support around the globe, but the general’s urgent warning to improve airmen training was leaked to the public.
‘War is on the way:’ Warning is blared after Hawaii gets lasered
“War is on the way,” China expert Gordon G. Chang is warning after a little-reported incident in which a Chinese satellite lasered the state of Hawaii.
Chang, a distinguished senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute and author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” said, “Nobody on the ground was burned by the green Chinese beams of light on January 28, but the laser shower is another warning that war is on the way.”
The events were noted when, on Jan. 28, the Subaru-Asahi Star Camera caught images of a shower of green laser beams lasting just seconds.
The camera watches for images from the Subaru Telescope on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea.
“The beams were not, as originally thought, from a NASA satellite,” Chang explained.”They could have come from only one source: China’s Daqi-1/AEMS satellite.”
And why would China be pointing lasers at a dormant Hawaii volcano?
“It’s a Chinese satellite that is measuring pollutants, among other things,” explained Roy Gal of the University of Hawaii Institute of Astronomy to the Hill. But Chang noted Richard Fisher of the Virginia-based International Assessment and Strategy Center offered other suggestions.
“China’s Daqi-1 satellite, a perfect example of the dual-use nature of China’s space program, utilizes a green laser for environmental or greenhouse gas research, but that data, which provides information about atmospheric density and heavy weather, could also be used to [guide] China’s new hypersonic glide vehicle [to it’s target],” he told Gatestone.
Those weapons, he explained, “require precise weather measurements to deliver warheads precisely on target.”
Or it could have been tracking U.S. submarine movements, other experts said.
And Fisher also suggested green lasers can be used to measure seabeds.
“It is likely that China has been seeking to develop compact but more powerful green lasers that can conduct underwater surveillance, perhaps anti-submarine and anti-mine missions, from space,” he said.
The events were little noted as January 28 was the same day that China’s now-infamous spy balloon entered Alaskan airspace.
Chang warned, “Combined with the green lasers collecting atmospheric data useful for a strike by a hypersonic glide vehicle on Hawaii, American defense planners should be alarmed.”
He said, “This preparation means, among other things, that it is dangerous to assume that China’s January 28 laser shower was for civilian purposes only.”
One thought on “Expect It: Wars and Rumors of Wars”
Once again the National Media has tried to keep us in the dark. Perhaps
China already owns them.
