These are unprecedented times.
If someone would have told you on January 1, 2020, that in a couple of months you’d be locked in your house by the government and 10 million Americans would be unemployed would you have believed them?
It sounds like the plot of a crazy Hollywood movie, yet here we all are…As I write this now I am under quarantine – only allowed to leave my house to go to the doctor or the grocery store. My daughter, who is an “essential worker” has to carry a letter in the car in case she’s pulled over to prove she’s allowed to be on the road.
How did we end up here so fast? It almost feels like a bad dream, but it’s so very real and scary.
But the worst part now is that many new signs show that things are going to get even more scary – and I am not referring to the virus or the economy right now…
I’m talking about China.
If you’re a frequent reader of WayneDupree.com you know that we’re big fans of the bloggers over at American Thinker. They put out good, thought-provoking work. I encourage you to check them out.
Today I happened upon a piece that really spoke to me because it’s been something I’ve been quietly thinking about…a “worse case scenario” type thought that has been floating around in my mind.
What is it?
It may seem obvious to some and outlandish to others, but let me pose a question to you:
What if China is planning to go to war with us?
What if the Chinese were so desperate to regain control back from Trump that they would attack us when we’re down and out?
It’s a scary thought – World War 3 type apocalyptic stuff – and it’s not meant to scare or fearmonger – because I think as we’ve seen lately – anything can happen and we should be prepared for it.
So, if this does happen, how would it unfold?
The piece I read at American Thinker lays out a plot that may sound like a Hollywood movie but given all that we now know is very plausible in my opinion.
I believe that China’s actions today may be telegraphing an intent we are choosing to ignore. They show all the signs of a nation preparing to attack America. China seeks a bespoke world run by China with “Chinese characteristics” — a dream that under Trump was drifting away.
China appears to be laying the groundwork for a “justified” attack on the United States, perhaps in the South China Sea or perhaps elsewhere. It will be a military attack, not an act of terrorism, and the excuse will be America’s deliberate transmission of COVID-19 in Wuhan.
When the Chinese became accusatory, it’s telling that they didn’t blame the CIA, always the usual suspect. No, they blamed it on American soldiers.
American military deliberately infecting China is an act of war worthy of a military response.
In October, the 2019 World Military Games were held in Wuhan. Chinese media triumphantly trumpeted the Americans winning just eight medals, while China won 239. It was then that we supposedly infected Wuhan citizens with the “American virus.”
China is now defenestrating foreign media, sending home reporters from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post at just the opportune moment. No nation wants journalists around when it is planning a sneak attack.
And with its economy ravaged by Trump’s trade war and the virus shutdown, and now back at full production, while America’s economy is in total shutdown and in the grip of an active pandemic, there will never be a better time to attack. [American Thinker]
At this point, I don’t think we can put anything past China. I think we need to be ready for anything and no longer live in the “oh, that could never happen” mindset. If we don’t expect the worst and prepare, we’ll get blindsided again.
