U.S. Policy Toward China Called Aggressive

JAMES BRADLEY, james@jamesbradley.com
    Bradley is author of several bestsellers focused on U.S. policy in the Pacific and Asia, including Flags of Our Fathers and The China Mirage: The Hidden History of American Disaster in Asia.

    He lives in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, producing the “Untold Pacific” podcast about “the American experience in Asia.” Recent episodes include “China Rising,” “The #1 Focus of the U.S. National Security State is War with China” and “U.S. Military: ‘War with China Inevitable.'”

    See his recent interview with Covert Action Magazine on the U.S. military encirclement of China.

    “The business of China is business. The business of America is war. Will the U.S. make a business-like deal with China over Taiwan? Or will the U.S. insist upon the Taiwan question being settled as a matter of war? It’s not China that’s aggressive — it’s the U.S. government that invades Iraq and Afghanistan and puts a fleet on China’s doorstep.

    “Now we have the U.S. government prodding Australia into a more militaristic posture toward China when China has been largely responsible for economic prosperity in Australia.

    “My daughter is in Taipei. She’s not worried about any sort of impending war.

    “The U.S.’s history in China is disastrous. One of the first war lobbies in the U.S. was to get the U.S. to pour millions into supporting Chiang Kai-shek against Mao when Chiang Kai-shek had much, much less popular support. FDR ended up spending more on Chiang Kai-shek than he did on the atomic bomb.”
