Delivering a speech at the Hudson Institute in Washington, Christopher Wray, a director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, gave extensive accounts on the multi-pronged disruption campaigns headed by China.
He claimed that China has started to target Chinese nationals living abroad and forcing them to return and is working on a strategy to hinder the US corona virus research. “The stakes could not be higher,” Wray said, “China is engaged in a whole-of-state effort to become the world’s only superpower by any means necessary,” he added.
On Tuesday, in his speech he briefed about China’s campaign of economic espionage, data and monetary theft, and illegal political activities, using bribery and blackmail as a means to influence US policy. This outline of the stark intervention by China posed a great threat to the future of the US.
This campaign program is known as “Foxhunt” which is geared at the Chinese nationals living abroad to being seen as threats to the Chinese government. “We’re talking about political rivals, dissidents, and critics seeking to expose China’s extensive human rights violations,” he said. “The Chinese government wants to force them to return to China, and China’s tactics to accomplish that are shocking.”
He continued: “When it couldn’t locate one Fox Hunt target, the Chinese government sent an emissary to visit the target’s family here in the United States. The message they said to pass on? The target had two options: return to China promptly, or commit suicide.”
This can be seen as the response or reaction of the Chinese government to the raging hatred that the US is spreading by accusing them of a secret conspiracy to end work and establish their atrocious rule about the new security law.
The Trump administration urges people that it is high time to wake up from the 40 years of policy failures concerning China, while critics see this as an attempt to deflect attention from the president’s own failures, maladministration, and to increase his chances of winning re-election.
