Gen. Keane: China spy craft shows how serious Beijing is in achieving â€˜regional and global domination
General Jack Keane, a retired four-star general and former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army, recently spoke out about China's spy craft and what it means for the country's ambitions of achieving regional and global domination.
In an interview with Fox News, Gen. Keane discussed the recent news of a Chinese spy ship that was spotted off the coast of Alaska during a joint military exercise between the United States and Canada. He noted that this was not the first time China has sent spy ships to monitor U.S. military activities, and that it is a clear indication of their intentions.
China is very serious about achieving regional and global domination, Gen. Keane said. They are investing heavily in their military and intelligence capabilities, and they are using those capabilities to gather information and gain an advantage over their rivals.
He went on to explain that China's spy craft is just one part of a larger strategy to achieve their goals. They are also investing in advanced weapons systems, cyber capabilities, and economic influence to gain an edge over their competitors.
But Gen. Keane also noted that the United States is not sitting idly by while China ramps up its efforts. He pointed to recent moves by the U.S. military to increase its presence in the Pacific, as well as efforts to strengthen alliances with countries in the region.
We are taking steps to counter China's ambitions, he said. But it's going to take a concerted effort by the United States and our allies to push back against China's aggressive actions.
Gen. Keane's comments come at a time of heightened tensions between the United States and China. The two countries have been engaged in a trade war for over a year, and there are concerns about China's growing military and economic influence in the region.
But despite these challenges, Gen. Keane remains optimistic about the United States' ability to compete with China.
We have the resources, the technology, and the alliances to push back against China's ambitions, he said. It's going to take a lot of hard work, but I believe we can do it.
