Two extraordinary things happened recently that suggest China and America are locked towards military conflict.
The first was the unprecedented release by America of plans to attack China if China attempts an invasion of Taiwan.
Currently China’s leaders are frightened that internal dissent is building while International pressure over Covid and how China hid the true nature of the virus will damage their standing. China is looking for a symbolic crack down to reassert their authority over their domestic population while clearly signalling to International audiences that China will answer to no one.
That leaves China a military crack down in Hong Kong, sparking a military confrontation in the South China Sea or invading Taiwan.
The first two China could pull off, but the lang lamented dream of forced reunification might be a symbolism that echoes throughout history, which suggests why the US released their plans to protect Taiwan…
A US national security document stamped “SECRET” has been declassified and published, revealing the superpower would defend Taiwan against an attack from China.
The 10-page “US Strategic Framework for the Indo-Pacific” report, approved by President Donald Trump for implementation in 2018, was previously not for release to foreign nationals.
…the problem for the US and the West is that we may have already lost to China’s technological dominance because something happened last month without a lot of fanfare that tilted the entire game in favour of China’s authoritarian brutality.
China conquered quantum computing…
… what does this mean?
This means the West have bow and arrows while China has a nuclear bomb. Quantum supremacy is not only a step forward towards super AI, it allows China’s machinery and internet of things to run at a level and efficiency maximisation utterly beyond any capacity of the West, it is an enormous technological break through that if not matched by the West will set China in a position of total power unlike any other nation in human history.
With China’s horrific human rights record, the West should be deeply concerned they have a technological advantage like this.
