A new report has exposed some startling information regarding the latest milestone achieved by The People's Republic of China. It is titled Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China 2020, and it should serve as a wake up call to the elements within our government which have enabled the globalization of our economy.
We now face a superpower that not only has surpassed America economically, but has also made amazing strides militarily. According to the report, these large improvements encompass 3 major elements:
Shipbuilding: The PRC has the largest navy in the world, with an overall battle force ofapproximately 350 ships and submarines including over 130 major surface combatants. Incomparison, the U.S. Navy’s battle force is approximately 293 ships as of early 2020
Land-based conventional ballistic and cruise missiles: The PRC has more than 1,250 groundlaunched ballistic missiles (GLBMs) and ground-launched cruise missiles (GLCMs) with rangesbetween 500 and 5,500 kilometers. The United States currently fields one type of conventionalGLBM with a range of 70 to 300 kilometers and no GLCMs.
Integrated air defense systems: The PRC has one of the world’s largest forces of advanced longrange surface-to-air systems—including Russian-built S-400s, S-300s, and domestically producedsystems—that constitute part of its robust and redundant integrated air defense systemarchitecture.

These developments were really the fault of the last four administrations before Trump became president, especially “Bush 41’s” administration, who's leader was the delusional visionary behind our current state of globalism.
In addition to the gains in military might, between 1999 and 2011, almost 5 million American jobs were lost to China. As the Communist nation was being legitimized on the World's Stage, they have also leveraged technological advantages to execute international espionage campaigns.
One example occurred earlier this year, when it was reported that phones made Chinese factories and distributed to poor families in America by the US government infected with malware. China has committed this sin against other countries as we as CNN recently report that thousands of low-cost phones manufactured by China’s Tecno and sold in Ethiopia, Cameroon, and Ghana were sold with Triada malware pre-installed.
The Chinese have basically become a more dangerous version of the old USSR. The fact is, Americans allowed weak and greedy politicians to run our country for far too long before Trump's presidency, and those self-absorbed individuals have truly put us behind the 8-ball.
A Biden presidency would only stunt the growth in strides we have been making in correcting America's position in the world. Every sober minded American should realize that Trump is the only choice in 2020.
