According to a recent Gallup poll, only ten percent of people in the US see China as our greatest threat.

That's according to this article...

Poll Says Americans See N. Korea As Threat

The CIA is seeing a threat.

As readers may recall, I've previously discussed the threat that Hutchison-Whampoa poses to our safety.

I'd give a link to their site, but it's illegal to direct link per their copyright notice. So here's some redirection to Google.

http://www.google.com/search?q=Hutchison+Whampoa+Limited

'The billionaire chairman of Hutchison Whampoa, Li Ka-shing, was a business and political buddy of the late Deng Xiaoping and now has the same close relationship with both Jiang Zemin and the Riady financial empire of Indonesia. No doubt that's why he controls most of China's commercial ports and seaborne trade as well as most of the dock space in Hong Kong.'

Red China: Gatekeeper of the Panama Canal
http://www.eagleforum.org/psr/1999/nov99/psrnov99.html

This is the official HWL list of where the ports are. In other words, here is the list of ports under control of the Red Chinese according to the HWL website.

Americas
- Argentina
- Bahamas (2 maritime ports and an airport)
- Panama (2, each end of the Panama Canal)
- Mexico (5)

Europe
- United Kingdom (three, including one near London)
- The Netherlands (2)
- Poland
- Germany
- Belgium

Middle East
- Saudi Arabia

Asia
- China, numerous of course
- Hong Kong
- Thailand (2)
- Myanmar
- Indonesia
- Korea (2)
- Pakistan
- Malaysia

Africa
- Tanzania

They also own Husky Energy (a big firm in Canada), telecommunications networks, and about a zillion other things.

Imagine what's in those shipping containers at the Red Chinese-controlled ports on both, yes both, ends of the Panama Canal. What does it matter if their nukes can't reach mainland US from China if they can from Panama or Mexico?

Ah, fuck. I agree with Bx. China is our greatest threat. This is a major political issue, and I agree with him.

I hope they have their snowshoes ready down in hell.

From Hoovers: Hutchison Whampoa is controlled by Li Ka-shing, one of the world's wealthiest men.
Hmm. Something may have been lost in translation. I'm sure his name should be spelled Ka-CHING!!!!

The idea that we are not allowed to link to thier site seems completely ridiculous. I like that.

Anyways, I'm not worried, for one thing Ronald Regan won the cold war and communism should pretty much stricken from the history books, and besides that, W. didn't include them in the Axis of Evil. Hmm.
