File this under the suspicion that the Chinese think a Harris-Biden errrrrr Biden Harris administration will not do much about this if they get elected.
Yesterday through the State Department, our Secretary of State let the world know that the Chinese had sent approximately 60,000 of their soldiers to the northern border of India. That is a pretty significant movement of forces against their neighbor and also an ally of ours. According to The Detroit News…
China has deployed tens of thousands of soldiers on India’s Northern border, U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said, in further signs that a deadly military standoff between the world’s two most populous countries is far from cooling down.
“The Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border,” Pompeo said on Fox News late Friday. Each of the three major Indo-Pacific democracies – India, Australia and Japan – which form the so-called Quad along with the U.S., is under threat from the Chinese Communist Party, Pompeo said, according to a transcript released by the U.S. State Department.
I don’t want to be a conspiracy theorists here but the timing of this sure seems a bit odd.
We all know that Donald Trump has been a huge thorn in the side of the Chinese march to overtaking the world economically and possibly at the cost of his own reelection. He has continuously battered them publicly and privately about the trade deals that have enriched the Chinese Communist Party and left the United States on unstable ground moving into the future. Trump has also continued to hammer on the Chinese keeping the information about COVID-19 secret and renaming it the Chinese Virus vowing to make the Chinese pay in his second term for this.
That Beijing would pick this time to send that many troops to the border of India looks like a move to take advantage of the possible distraction of the current U.S. President trying to retain the job for another four more years. Plus, there really can’t be anyone alive thinking that Joe Biden would be harder on the Chinese than Donald Trump.
I mean, no one not on drugs.
This will be something to keep your eyes on over the next 22 days to see what the Chi-Coms do and how we respond.
