USA vs China: the deadly battle of the XXI century
Publication of the American analytical agency Rand Corporation "War with China. Think about the unthinkable" is no longer an attempt to exert informational and political pressure on Beijing or to form a negative public attitude towards China as a potential aggressor in the South China Sea. This is a symbolic transition Rubicon. China is the most important trading partner of the United States, and quite recently it was unthinkable to imagine that the Pentagon’s professional displays, kept under the “Top Secret” label, would be pulled out like a genie from a bottle, even under the guise of independent civilian analytics. What are the true goals of the Rand Corp. "plum"? There are several of them.
The first task is internal: a clear message of the American nation. At one time, Roosevelt managed to overcome the traditional isolationism of fellow citizens only after the Pearl Harbor massacre. Given the popularity of Republican Trump's isolationist slogans and the reluctance of American business to complicate relations with Chinese partners, "swinging" America into an open conflict with a very strong adversary will not be easy. Especially since, based on military and economic realities, lose strike forces fleetas in the last century, the United States can no longer afford. Therefore, we should expect in the near future the continuation of an information campaign to demonize China and prepare the Americans for an "inevitable clash."
The second task, external, is no less important for Washington. The stakes are too high. The outcome of the planned conflict will determine not only the military and economic hegemon at least until the end of the century, but no less than the civilizational vector of the planet’s development, because, despite the liberal dogma about the leveling role of the global market, China does not at all demonstrate a desire to assimilate the democratic values of the West. Therefore, the United States, long before the beginning of an open conflict, offers all the world's largest and regional players to decide on which civilizational model they ultimately support.
But this is all a general theory that paints a picture as a whole, but does not give an answer to particular ones. How can America, which is rapidly losing economic and military advantages in the civilization race with China, can win?
On the purely technical side, Washington is counting on the "third compensation strategy," voiced by Deputy Secretary of Defense Bob Wark as early as 2013. It involves intensive targeted funding of promising dual-use technologies, such as hypersound, energy weapon, XNUMXD printing, artificial intelligence, nanorobots, etc. All this may seem like science fiction, but until relatively recently, home computers, the Internet, mobile communications, and surgical Robots also seemed fantastic. Given that the new artificial intelligence system of the University of Cincinnati, for example, dealt with the American ace instructor on the air combat simulator with lightning speed, without giving him a single chance, the modified AI on promising unmanned vehicles will be a death sentence even for numerous Chinese Air Force. So as a result of the new generation arms race, America can gain significant advantages on the battlefield.
Do not discount other methods of exposure. For example, the intensification of national liberation movements in Tibet and the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, youth dissatisfaction in Hong Kong, etc. The attack on the Celestial Empire will be carried out in all possible directions, from the veiled discredit of the CCP in Chinese social networks to the outbreak of exotic diseases such as bird flu and atypical pneumonia, causing panic and blockade of whole areas.
It should also be understood that this war will be waged by America with deliberate cruelty and even cruelty. The world will have to get the most visual lesson: no one dares to challenge America and go unpunished.
