Expert: China Sees U.S. as Top Enemy

Thursday, 08 September 2005 12:00 AM

Michael Pillsbury, who speaks fluent Chinese and has written three books on Chinese military strategy, has urged the Pentagon to take a wary view of China's global intentions.

And he declared: "We must acknowledge that we are facing in China what may become the largest challenge in our nation's history."

The China expert has amassed a large number of Chinese military texts and interviewed their authors in an effort to understand the country's long-term military aims.

"His conclusion has rattled many in Washington: China sees the U.S. as a military threat," according to the Journal.

A recent Pentagon report cautioned that the Chinese military has ambitions well beyond defending its historical claim to Taiwan, and said China could provoke small wars to secure its growing energy requirements.

According to Pillsbury, Chinese writings show a military establishment obsessed with the inevitable decline of the U.S. and China's rise.

He says that after Beijing tried to blame the U.S. for helping foment the dissent that led to the Tiananmen protests, "even some friends in the Chinese military that I'd known for years began to describe us as a mortal enemy, an evil force."

As NewsMax.com reported earlier, China's plan for "Unrestricted Warfare" was detailed in a manual written by two Chinese colonels. The manual cites the use of hackers and terrorism in a total war against the U.S.

The CIA's translation of the manual reveals that China regards the U.S. as its main enemy.
