Russian Phobia Hides Our Biggest Adversary - China
[Townhall] ...With the attempt to excuse the Clinton loss and hide other malfeasance by the Democrats, we have lost total perspective on this issue. As stated by Steve Cohen, NYU Professor Emeritus of Russian Studies, "I've never seen anything like it in my life, the reaction by most of the media, Democrats and anti-Trump people is like mob violence." Cohen said it's been common since World War II for the U.S. president to meet with the leader of the Kremlin, "in order to avoid nuclear war between the two superpowers." Was it more important that Trump avoid war with Russia or for him to stick a finger in Putin’s eye over hacking done in 2016? I pick staying out of war to be more important.

...Dan Coats, Director of National Intelligence, stated that there are four countries (Iran, North Korea, China and Russia) that are actively cyberattacking our country. One must ask why the focus is on one country and the others can slide -- particularly China, the biggest?

...Let’s look at just one of the multitudes of problems with the Chinese while ignoring others like their blatant disregard for the environment. That one problem is their aggressive, hegemonic activities in the South China Sea. Two years ago they were rebuked by an international tribunal for their activities yet they forged forward uninterrupted. While they continue building their military position there, they are threatening and bullying neighboring countries like Vietnam, stopping them from drilling in their exclusive economic zone. China has bullied Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines into joint development projects in their own economic zones, establishing joint claims to the areas. The U.S. government under Obama and now Trump has refused to press China on these issues.

The North Korea problem would not exist without the aid of China. America has abandoned Tibet and many would abandon Taiwan to appease the dictator running China. China goes virtually unchallenged on these issues while our country focuses on Russia as if a tornado were bearing down on us.
