The Communist Party of China (CCP) is rapidly pursuing nuclear weapons and the army is Angus King (I-Main).
“At the moment, China seems completely uninterested in this proposal,” King said.
The remarks came as part of a keynote address on the issue of nuclear non-proliferation at a virtual conference hosted by the Washington-based think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies on September 21, during which he expressed concern over the current state of non-proliferation efforts Or expressed concern about refusing to stop.
King added that the CCP was probably trying to achieve complete equality with the United States in terms of the number of nuclear weapons and their capabilities.
“This makes it a dangerous situation,” he said.
King said the United States still relies on a broader strategy of resistance, in which the threat of energy is intended to prevent the use of force by an adversary.
“Blockade is still our basic strategy,” Raja said.
“The whole idea of resistance is to have the ability to respond to any kind of attack or aggression against this country so that this attack can never happen.”
Despite the previous success of this strategy, King suggested that many of the differences between Russia and China were not sufficiently differentiated, and for the fact that the CCP posed a fundamentally different kind of threat than the USSR during the Cold War.
“We’re in a fundamentally different place than we were 40 to 50 years ago,” King said.
“The rules for playing with the Soviet Union and then Russia do not actually apply to China,” he added.
King, who wrote his senior college thesis on resistance strategy in 1966, noted that a major difference between the Cold War and the current strategic landscape is that the world is no longer a bipartisan political scene, but a battle between two great powers. Rather, he said, the world is entering a multifaceted world that presents a more complex and innovative situation in terms of international strategy.
“Now, China has merged a lot,” King said. “It is now a tri-pole world, and China is deeply engaged in nuclear construction.”
To that end, King said the most immediate external threat to the U.S. economy’s ability to resist is the ability to intervene in U.S. command and control, the potential for cyber-attacks, the oversight of military operations, and the ability to facilitate.
To that end, King argued that the United States needed to develop better redundancy, that is, a system and process that guarantees that one military technology can work effectively even if another, similar technology fails.
“It is highly critical to have redundancy over redundancy, because if the enemy believes they can compromise with our command and control powers, resistance evaporates,” King said.
“Any conflict on our way will start with a cyber attack aimed at blinding our communication and compromising our command and control.”
The king further thought that a foreign government could probably employ about,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
For example, he said that any attempt at nuclear deterrence would predict the United States’ ability to invest heavily in the nuclear arsenal and the cyber security needed to maintain its ability to use it. He took the point home by asking those present to consider the worst case scenario at the beginning of a possible armed conflict.
“What if the whole grid shuts down?” The king said. “What if the White House has no power?”
“If they could disable our entire carrier fleet in the western Pacific, it would dramatically change the strategic calculus,” King added.
