China calls US a ‘direct threat’ to the world

RT | December 25, 2022

Washington intentionally hypes up the “China threat” as an exuse to boost its military spending in an effort to maintain its global dominance, the Chinese Defense Ministry said in a statement on Saturday, after President Joe Biden signed the 2023 US National Defense Authorization Act into law.

“Facts have proved more than once that the US is the direct threat to the international order and the culprit of the regional turbulence,” said the ministry’s spokesman, Colonel Tan Kefei.

The statement went on to claim that in pursuit of its selfish interests, the US on multiple occasions “either waged wars against other countries or created conflicts, causing massive casualties and displacement of innocent civilians.”

The $858-billion US military spending program for fiscal year 2023, which authorized $10 billion in security assistance and fast-tracked weapons procurement for Taiwan, is yet another in a series of provocative moves that “seriously jeopardize the peace and stability in Taiwan Straits and increase the risk of China-US military confrontation.”

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army further vowed to “resolutely safeguard national reunification and territorial integrity of the country,” warning that Washington has no other choice but to “respect China’s core interests and major concerns.”

The island of Taiwan has been self-governed since 1949, but never officially declared independence from Beijing, with China viewing it as part of its territory. Tensions between Beijing and Taipei have been high since the visit of US House speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan in August.

Washington must drop its “old trick of unilateral bullying” that it hands out to Beijing, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in a phone call earlier this week. “It has not worked with China in the past, nor will it work in the future.”

  1. It was very polite of the Chinese to not mention the total domination of the USA Government, by a foreign Government in the Middle East

    • You’re right, Brian: we ‘mericans have given up our sovereignty, our core national-security and -moral interests and more and more our domestic affairs…in service to crazed, blood-lust Zionists that can only be sneering at us in derision and expectation of evermore greater subservience. And now, they/we have Netanyahu — again! — more and more arrogant and primed for ultimate evil. Above all, pity the Palestinians.

  3. The MIC has again flexed its muscle getting more than it asked for from a compliant Congress on the take. While the 2023 budget puts the American people at the short end of the stick. The situation necessitates the need for sweeping changes in American politics before the lights go out on the American experiment.

    FEC Rules and Regulations need overhauling but more importantly safe guarding the election process against fraud and vote rigging is paramount for securing free and fair elections. After Trump beat Clinton the deep state made certain Trump would not succeed in carrying out his campaign agenda even though it had the approval of the American people who elected him. They also made certain the economy would collapse by pressuring Trump to lock down the nation to stop the spread of Covid. It diminished Trump’s appeal but not the spread of Covid.
