Finally understanding the global agenda and the drive
to global governance, the diplomat responded politely but firmly, "we
[China] will never bend to the authority of the United Nations.... I have
spent most of my diplomatic career in the United States and I have enjoyed
your nation. Please don’t take offense, but this policy will allow China
to bury the United States."
The U.S. has responded by deploying the USS Kitty Hawk
and USS Constellation battle groups to the South China Sea, ostensibly to
send China a strong message that the U.S. will not tolerate Chinese
military action against Taiwan, which the U.S. is legally bound by the
1979 Taiwan Relations Act to protect. Nonetheless, on August 11, China
authorized the Central Military Commission and the Leading Group on Taiwan
to use "an appropriate degree of force against Taiwan" if
Taiwan’s president Lee Teng-hui does not abandon his "two
states" proclamation of July 9.
China has repeatedly voiced its concerns that the
"international community" led by the U.S. and Europe, would
apply a "Kosovo" solution to Taiwan, supporting Taiwan’s
independence from China. It is rapidly becoming apparent that PRC believes
this may be its last chance to take back Taiwan.
Yet, it was not the despotic Chinese government that
the Clinton Administration condemned, but rather Taiwan’s President Lee
for his "reckless" talk. The world was shocked. By supporting
China, Clinton sent a strong message to China that the U.S. will give wide
latitude to any action taken by the PLA. Why?
Ironically, reuniting Taiwan with China fits perfectly
with the goals of the global elite. The report of the UN Commission on
Global Governance, Our Global Neighborhood, actually states that it
expects the "eventual emergence of a larger Asian economic
community." Such a community, patterned after the European
Community, would "become an integral part of a more democratic
system of global governance."
If a Chinese lead Asian economic community is the goal
of the global elite, Clinton will capitulate to China on Taiwan. By doing
so he will not only violate the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, he will
completely reverse his own policy established in Kosovo of ensuring the
right of self determination and protecting the security of the people (see
May, 1999 DTT).
China does not have to confront the U.S. military head
on to take back Taiwan. The PRC has been quietly using the concessions
given it by Clinton and the global elite to gain strategic superiority in
key areas around the world which severely hamper U.S. commercial and
military effectiveness. A U.S. Congressional Report states, "Worldwide,
China appears to be progressively positioning itself commercially and
militarily along the key naval choke points between the Indian Ocean, the
South China Sea; the Straits of Malacca; the central Pacific; the coast of
Hawaii; the Caribbean; and now the Panama Canal."
In addition, continues the report, "China’s
flagship commercial shipping fleet China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO),
is directly connected to the Peoples’s Liberation Army and Chinese
communist government. COSCO ships have served as [carriers] for massive
smuggling operations...of weapons, drugs and illegal aliens..., missiles
and components of weapons of mass destruction...."
This activity appears to be part of a plan to implement
what China refers to as "unrestricted war." The plan
theoretically levels the playing field with the vastly superior U.S.
military. It calls for strategic positioning of China’s military, while
employing terrorism, computer sabotage, financial strangulation, drug
trafficking, propaganda and other destabilizing schemes to weaken the U.S.
and create political upheaval.
Part of this strategy includes flooding the U.S. with
low cost products produced by a PLA front called COSCO. These products are
made with slave labor, undercutting competition in the American
marketplace. Income from these profits are then used to modernize the
COSCO’s recent attempt to purchase the Long Beach
Naval Yard would have allowed the PLA a beachhead on U.S. soil. Although
that failed because a public outcry, China has is having resounding
success in taking over the Panama Canal through a company called
Hutchinson-Whampoa Ltd. The U.S. withdraws from Panama on December 31,
this year. (See side-bar).
Like COSCO, Hutchinson-Whampoa Ltd. has direct ties
with the PRC and the PLA. It is owned by Hong Kong billionaire Dr. Li Ka-shing,
who in turn, is in partnership with COSCO. Hutchinson-Whampoa already
controls the port facilities of Balboa on the Pacific and Cristobal on the
Atlantic, and will control the entire Canal next January.
Control of the Canal permits a military base for the
PLA. China can also open the door to drug trafficking and terrorists—all
while imposing a potential choke-hold on U.S. Atlantic/Pacific shipping
and naval operations. And thanks to the technology China either bought or
stole from the U.S., much of the southeastern U.S. is now within reach of
increasingly accurate Chinese mid-range nuclear missiles.
With its willingness to use terrorism and other
nonmilitary means within U.S. borders to neutralize U.S. superiority in
the Western Pacific, China has become a real threat to every American
citizen. Especially if China truly believes it must retake Taiwan now,
before global governance is legally imposed in September, 2000.
