Republican Gives Dire Warning to Biden as China Proves Its Missile Tech Is Miles More Ahead Than We Thought – Opinion

“Complacent.” That’s how Republican Mike Gallagher of the armed services committee described President Joe Biden when it came to his relationship with China, especially now that we witnessed just how far along China’s missile tech is.

According to Daily Mail, China launched an hypersonic-capable nuclear missile that could travel low orbit in order to avoid detection and defend itself. This technology allows China to nuke anyone they wish, anytime they like, with very little warning. The launch took analysts by complete surprise with one saying ‘we have no idea how they did this.’

Beijing claims that this was an innocent test for “civilian spacecraft.” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said this was for “reducing the use-cost of spacecraft and could provide a convenient and affordable way to make a round trip for mankind’s peaceful use of space,” but NATO isn’t convinced according to the Mail:

After the missile’s launch, NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg said that the alliance would reposition to face the increasing threat from China, a departure from the historic focus it had on Russia.

‘Nato is an alliance of North America and Europe. But this region faces global challenges: terrorism, cyber but also the rise of China, he told the Financial Times.

‘So when it comes to strengthening our collective defence, that’s also about how to address the rise of China. We can see that China’s rise will have an impact on our security. This already happened.

‘China is coming closer to us . They are everywhere. . They can be seen in Arctic. They are also visible in cyberspace. They are investing in infrastructure critical to our nations. And of course they have more and more high-range weapons that can reach all Nato allied countries.’

Among the unconvinced is Gallager, who said Biden needs to “aggressively” rethink America’s relationship with China after the launch. Calling it a “call to action,” Gallagher warned what would happen if we continued to play nice with China.

“If we stick to our current complacent course… we will lose the New Cold War with Communist China within the decade,” he said in a statement.

“The People’s Liberation Army now has an increasingly credible capability to undermine our missile defenses and threaten the American homeland with both conventional and nuclear strikes,” he added.

Gallagher finished by warning American “entities” that the choice is either to side with America or with a “genocidal communist regime that now threatens our cities.”

Gallager’s prediction is correct. While China’s official response to the rest of the world was to convince it that it was a “peaceful” test of a civilian craft, what it told its own people via its state-run media shows its true intent according to the Mail:

Beijing did not report the test or its results at the time, but after it was disclosed the country’s state media mocked America by saying it is a ‘new blow to the US’s mentality of strategic superiority over China’.

An op-ed in the Chinese state media outlet Global Times, Beijing’s mouthpiece, said the test means ‘there is a key new member in China’s nuclear deterrence system’, adding that this is a ‘new blow to the US’s mentality of strategic superiority over China’.

All Americans should find this alarming. Now the question is: Will Biden really take this threat seriously.

Biden’s approach to China has, so far, been very soft-handed. China’s obvious threats against Taiwan were lukewarm, prompting even one New York Times columnist to label his policy toward the tiny nation as “truly, deeply reckless.” The New York Post urged Biden to stand up to China’s threats as we all wonder if Biden will abandon our ally.

Biden likes to pretend he’s taking a competitive stand with China that involves consulting with allies, departing from former President Donald Trump’s position of acting unilaterally against them at the drop of a hat, but it would appear that China senses weakness from Biden and is taking advantage of it. It’s highly unlikely this would have happened under Trump, given that Trump’s immediate response would have been to directly threaten or punish the communist nation for its stunt.
