China's strategic threat to U.S.
Expert says Clinton administration oblivious
China wants the U.S. out of Asia, and will continue to upgrade and enhance its military capability to accomplish that goal, according to a senior congressional policy analyst.
Al Santoli, a foreign policy adviser to U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA, and an analyst at the American Foreign Policy Council, believes current administration policies toward China of so-called "constructive engagement" are "worse than appeasement," and will further jeopardize U.S. national security in the long run.
Santoli made his remarks in a telephone interview with WorldNetDaily, and was adamant that all indications point to the Chinese continuing their decade-long effort to obtain more sensitive U.S. technology before their "window of opportunity closes" at the end of the Clinton administration.
The latest attempt by China to obtain more U.S. technology occurred earlier this month, when Chinese businessman Collin Shu was arrested in Massachusetts trying to buy gyroscopes from U.S. undercover agents. The gyroscopes are precision tools used to guide everything from missiles to smart bombs, and officials said that Shu was attempting to ship them to China through Canada via a front company he owns.
What is equally important; however, are the uses China has found for all the new knowledge. Both Rohrabacher and Santoli are worried that Chinese military buildups in key areas surrounding mainland China will not only threaten the stability of the region but make any eventual U.S. intervention costly and difficult.
Santoli told WorldNetDaily that while he believes the issue of Taiwan is currently the most contentious between the U.S. and China, he also indicated that a threat is emerging in the South China Sea because of China's claim of sovereignty over a small collection of islands.
