The Pentagon (the U.S. Department of Defense) began to produce its "annual reports to Congress on the military power of the People's Republic of China" in 2002, and so its report of 2007 is its sixth.
First, take note that the dictatorship in China is ingratiatingly referred to by the U.S. Department of Defense as "the People's Republic of China."
Marx, Lenin, and Mao defined this "form of government" as the "dictatorship of the proletariat," and Lenin stated that one person (such as Lenin) could impersonate the proletariat. But today, after Hitler, "dictatorship" and "dictator" are bad words, while the U.S. Department of Defense uses only those words which the dictators of China would like and which would help the people of the United States and other non-dictatorships to believe that no dictatorship in China exists.
Quite on the contrary, China is "the People's [Democratic?] Republic" [!].
The British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's "Munich Agreement" (Sept. 30, 1938) conceded to Hitler virtually all his demands and left Czechoslovakia defenseless. But when Chamberlain came back home, it was only with great difficulty that his limousine could maneuver through the streets of London, flooded with the triumphant people, wishing to personally participate in the great victory of peace.
The yearning of the British people for peace was so strong that even Hitler seemed to many of them a champion of peace, revealed as such to the world by Neville Chamberlain.
In reality, and not in the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist propaganda, the People's Republic of China has never existed.
What has existed in China since 1949 is a dictatorship. Similarly, the People's Liberation Army has been named so because Marx, Lenin, and Mao postulated that "the capitalists had enslaved the poor in the capitalist countries, and a liberation army is to liberate them."
Neither Lenin, nor Stalin, nor any of their Soviet Russian successors, nor Mao, was called by the American title "president." But the U.S. Department of Defense speaks (see Page 1) of "PRC President Hu Jintao. " Quite like "U.S. President George Bush." That is, to misname the reality such as the dictatorship in China, the Pentagon uses either the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist jargon or the language of the constitutional and democratic countries, or both, as in its phrase: "PRC President Hu Jintao . . ."
The U.S. Department of Defense seems to believe that if it speaks in the propaganda clichés of the dictatorship in China, the majority of the Western peoples will treat the Pentagon as the majority of the British people treated Neville Chamberlain until Hitler launched an honest-to-goodness (but, thank God, conventional) war.
The dictatorship in China is mortally dangerous precisely because it is a dictatorship — indeed, the biggest dictatorship in recorded history and existing in the epoch when post-nuclear super weapons (of which the Report says not a word) may annihilate the United States with total impunity.
The U.S. Department of Defense seems to have forgotten all non-propaganda words, such as "dictatorship." The first two sentences of the Executive Summary of the Pentagon's Report describe the magnificent present day of China:
China's rapid rise as a regional political and economic power with global aspirations is an important element of today's strategic environment—one that has significant implications for the region and the world. The United States welcomes the rise of a peaceful and prosperous China, and it encourages China to participate as a responsible international stakeholder by taking on a greater share of responsibility for the health and success of the global system.
In front of me is a four-page article about slavery and organ harvesting in China from The Epoch Times, a magazine published and transmitted via the Internet by Chinese freethinkers. With my limited Soviet-Russian experience, I could not understand how slaves can "work 16 to 20 hours a day" (Page 1). But of course, the Pentagon is loath to spoil the magnificent present day of "the People's Republic of China" by such horrors.
True, the magnificence of China refers to the present. But, of course, the Pentagon cannot vouch for the future: "However, much uncertainty surrounds the future course of China's leaders will set for their country, including in the area of China's expanding military power and how that power might be used."
"Much uncertainty"? Well, for the present day, the picture following from the Report is reassuring. The United States and other constitutional and democratic countries were once "developing" (as the word was used in the West) economically and hence militarily. So does "the People's Republic of China," according to the Report.
So far, so good. But let me note that the population of China is four times larger than that of the United States. So there will be a time in this "development" when China's output will exceed that of the United States four times. Moreover, slave labor in China may produce an even greater discrepancy. Note also the Chinese emphasis on the military output. What then?
Well, for the time being, China is developing economically and hence militarily. Much of its development the dictatorship in China does not conceal (why cannot China develop?) and some concealment is impossible, and so the 42 pages of the Report are full of such cases, though the Report does not say what the United States will do when the output of China's development exceeds that of the United States "x" times, and China's intention to liberate the mankind, enslaved in the United States and Western Europe, will become as strong as it was in the writings and speeches of Marx, Lenin, and Mao.
How about what the dictatorship in China wishes to conceal and can conceal from the Pentagon and all other watchers?
On Page 1 of the Report we read: "Evidence in 2006 suggests that China revised the 1993 Military Strategic Guidelines for the New Period, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) guidance documents for military strategy and forces development. The specific contents of the guidelines are not known."
So the Chinese "Military Strategic Guidelines" as a guidance for the entire army is still a secret for the U.S. Department of Defense! There has been not a single person who would copy the guidelines for the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency either before or after 1993. It is not even clear when the guidelines of 1993 were revised in the past 14 years.
The U.S. Manhattan Project, undertaken by Roosevelt after Einstein had informed him that Germany could be developing nuclear weapons, was a total surprise for Japan (a military empire) in 1945.
What if the dictatorship in China has or will soon have "x" projects each of the size of the Manhattan Project, developing different post-nuclear global super weapons such as molecular nano weapons about which the Report does not say a word, but which can, according to Eric Drexler, the founder of nano technology, annihilate a country without the ability of the attacked country to retaliate, that is, without Mutual Assured Destruction, which has preserved peace between atomic powers for many decades.
