    No time to watch now.  What are the main points?

    The main point is that China is not a friend of America (or the West) and that they are on track to supplant America as the world’s premier power and will establish a new Chinese world order where America (and the West) are essentially second class citizens. The kicker is that not only did we allow it to happen, we actually helped and encouraged it to.

    China has never gotten raked over the coals like Germany and Russia. Mao deserves more movies made about his evil.

  3. I only had time to listen to half of the interview before boarding my flight. A couple of quick observations:

    1. Mr Pillsbury claims to be “sounding the alarm” as if no one in the security community is aware of the problem. I get emails every few months from counterintelligence warning about humint and cyber attacks, often naming China. This has been going on for years.
    2. China may be able to steal intellectual property used in currently manufactured products but innovation does not stand still. Today’s technology is tomorrow’s old-hat. China has shown little capacity for innovation.

    This guy has been out of government for a long time. He’s a think-tank pundit with no skin in the game. It’s hard to take him too seriously.

    Not to mention, who cares if China wanted to create a China dominated world? I say let them. You guys who think empire is a good thing fail to realize that it has saddled us with $21 trillion in debt and no realistic way to pay it down. If China thinks they can withstand that kind of burden on its economy I say go ahead.
