Vladimir Skoserev, in “Nezavisimaya Gazeta”, wrote about the United States ’thinking about taking a step that would inevitably lead to war with China.
The article says: After the end of the epidemic, the United States will launch a hybrid war against China. The Americans will cut ties with Chinese telecom companies, ban chips in the West from buying China, and separate them from submarine internet cables and the US information storage system.
This is exactly what the “clean network” announced by US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo stipulates.
According to American columnist Alistair Crooke, this will not mean a return to the Cold War, but rather the first heavy artillery bombing in a real long war. The situation is similar to the situation in the summer of 1914 when Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated.
As international affairs analyst Stan Grant writes, the day of reckoning in US-China relations is approaching. But he attributes this to the fact that China is steadily moving towards becoming the largest economy in the world, surpassing the United States with confidence. He wrote, “Conflict is no longer excluded. The dramatic shift in the balance of power creates the potential for a hotspot to emerge in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.”
In this regard, the director of the Far East Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexei Maslov, told “Nezavisimaya Gazeta”: “Before the First World War, the military mood was prevailing in the alliances of different countries. Now, the United States alone wants to fight, rather, to fight China using hybrid methods. In military technology, the United States excels. But in terms of the number of ships – surface and submarine – China overtakes the United States. This means that in the event of a conventional war, there will be very large numbers of casualties on both sides. Therefore, the United States wants to “disconnect” from China. That is, separating him from all the achievements of the world civilization that he uses. This includes the Internet and the various technologies and forms of global trade. Actually, this might not work. But the United States seeks, in the first place, to destabilize China and incite a revolt within it. ”
