In my previous columns, I mentioned how inadequately the U.S. mass media was at reporting the “People’s Republic of China” theft of top military technology from the United States.
An assumption that a country that steals enemy military technology to make war is weak seems to have been quite common.
However, C-SPAN (Cable Satellite Public Affairs Network, that is, an American cable television network) has presented a different picture of the U.S.-China collision.
"C-SPAN: Report on Chinese Espionage," a collection of unclassified information, which recently came to my attention, consists of eight consecutively numbered section openers.
Each section runs from four to seven pages and carries the same title “PRC Acquisition of U.S. Technology.”
I am not presenting the entire content of the C-SPAN Report within the space of this column. Nor is there any need for it. The text of this report in its entirety can be found on the Internet.
My goal is to show how different is the report from so much of what we hear and read in the rest of American mass media. What is crucially important is that the C-SPAN report presents a sinister picture of how the “People’s Republic of China” has been stealing classified information of all the United States’ most advanced military secrets since as early as 1970.
The following is the quotation from the report: “These thefts are the result of an intelligence collection program, spanning two decades and continuing to the present. The PRC intelligence collection program included espionage, review of unclassified publications, and intensive interactions with scientists from the Department of Energy’s national weapons laboratories.”
The report goes on to say: “The stolen U.S. secrets have helped the PRC fabricate and successfully test modern strategic thermonuclear weapons . . . The stolen information includes classified design information for an enhanced information weapon (commonly known as the “neutron bomb”), which neither the United States, nor any other nation, has ever deployed . . . The PRC subsequently tested the neutron bomb. The U.S. has never deployed a neutron weapon.”
And further: “The Select Committee judges that the U.S. national weapons laboratories have been and are targeted by PRC espionage, and almost certainly remain penetrated by the PRC today.”
Section 4 of the report notes, in particular, that “The PRC also tries to identify ethnic Chinese in the United States who have access to sensitive information, and sometimes is able to enlist their cooperation in illegal technology or information transfers.”
However, it is only from the C-SPAN report that we have learned this information so crucial for the survival of the free countries. Obviously, it is vital to give the report wider publicity and follow its serious analysis of this tragic world situation.
The only ruler in the 20th century who did not deny his intention to establish his world domination was Hitler. But he lost his war in Russia, because the population of Germany was about 100 million less than that of Russia. Compare this population advantage with the population advantage of the “People’s Republic of China” (1 billion people!) over the United States and note that some of decisive weapons did not advance in Mao’s China owing to his preference for “revolutions” over wars (in vain was he waiting for the “New Russian Revolution” to come).
The essence of the C-SPAN report drastically differs from what is being said in other mass media, whose purpose has been to entertain their audiences. For C-SPAN, this information is about as “entertaining” as would be the U.S. war against Nazi Germany for those Americans who participated in it and were killed in that war.
The seizure of enemy weapons to fight the enemy has existed for millennia.
Ironically, the United States has not been a military enemy of the “People’s Republic of China.” To the contrary, the United States has been helping it raise the living standards of the Chinese people.
The world situation is tragic due to the nature of the PRC. But fortunately, the relevant reports, as well as those on Newsmax.com and WorldTribune.com, represent the American understanding of the coming world tragedy.
The outcome depends on how soon the rest of the thinking America and other free countries will embrace intellectually the C-SPAN report and other such serious institutions, not the sheer bearers of academic titles.
The advantage of the free countries lies in their fostering geniuses to rise to the highest peaks possible.
