The Ghosts of Khrushchev and Castro Now Haunt in Communist China’s Cuba
Please share this one with a friend to protect America!!!!
As a young boy growing up among the servant class in Palm Beach and living just down the street from President John F. Kennedy’s Florida compound during the Cuban missile crisis, it was one of the scariest times of my life. Construction crews were working on a nuclear bomb shelter for JFK under nearby Peanut Island while my classmates and I were practicing hiding underneath our desks in the event of a Soviet attack.
JFK was absolutely right then to make sure the shoe-pounding Khrushchev didn’t have the capability to launch nuclear-tipped missiles 90 miles from American shores. Thankfully, his combination of steely-spined brinksmanship and deft diplomacy resulted in a Soviet retreat.
Today, there is an even more dangerous existential threat to America originating from a rapidly militarizing Communist China and again emanating from Socialist Cuba. In this new Cuban (Cyber) Missile Crisis, Communist China is installing far more than a simple surveillance outpost.
One need look no further than similar Communist Chinese facilities on islands across the South China Sea to understand that the Cuban adventure is no more a simple listening post than the massive balloon Communist China sent on a cross-country journey across America was, as the Neville Chamberlain of his time Joe Biden put it, a “silly balloon.”
In today’s cyber times and age of deadly artificial intelligence, the clear and present danger to America is this: From nearby Cuba, the Communist dictator Xi Jinping and his People’s Liberation Army will have far better and more lethal cyber and electronic warfare capabilities to wage what the Chinese military itself calls “unrestricted warfare.”
From its Cuban fortress, Communist China will be far better able to disable American communications, disrupt our financial systems, misdirect US ship traffic, launch sonic attacks on our Guantanamo base, and, most dangerously, paralyze our electricity grid, rail systems, and water supplies. From my days in the Trump White House, I can assure you that Communist China is planning to wage just such unrestricted warfare should “push comes to shove” in some kind of US-Communist China contingency, with the coming battle over Taiwan offering up the most likely possibility.
Here’s what infuriates me the most about the Biden regime’s response to this new Cuban (Cyber) Missile Crisis. First, the gut first reaction of this gutless Biden regime was to immediately lie to the American people about the presence of Communist China in Cuba. That lie came directly from two retired military officers no less, top Biden officials in Rear Admiral John Kirby at the National Security Council and Pentagon Press Secretary Brigadier General Patrick Ryder, who incredulously insisted “we are not aware of China and Cuba developing any type of spy stations.”
If Kirby and Ryder were still in uniform and Trump were President, they would be stripped of their rank and court-martialed for such dishonorable conduct. Lest anyone think that because of their high rank either Kirby or Ryder know anything about warfare, think again; Their resumes reveal military careers consisting entirely of “public affairs” spin doctoring.
That leads me to the second infuriating thing: In admitting its lie amid intense public pressure, the Biden regime is now claiming Communist China’s Cuban fortress first popped up during the Trump years – so “blame Trump” is the implication.
Now hear this breaking news: During my service at the White House, I never once heard of any such Communist Chinese fortress on Cuban soil. Ever.
If President Trump had been fully briefed about such an existential threat, he certainly would not have tolerated it. He also would have factored such an egregious threat into his tough trade policies against Communist China – and I would certainly have heard about that.
The other possibility is the Deep State intelligence apparatus simply refused to disclose this information to Trump’s White House. This rings as at least possibly true as I noticed every time I sat in on a national security briefing, America’s so-called intelligence officers would always take a “see no evil” appeasement posture towards Communist China, perhaps fearful that Trump would take an even tougher line on Xi’s dictatorship.
Here’s the bottom line: Communist China is now using its debt trap diplomacy to drag an impoverished and cash-starved Socialist Cuba into its Panda Belt and Road Initiative bearhug. If the Biden regime fails to immediately shut this down, a strategic Cuban naval port will likely be next on Xi Jinping’s shopping list.
Given that an obviously weak and hopelessly compromised Joe Biden won’t act decisively as JFK did, a full-throated and bi-partisan Congress must quickly intervene. If such steely American resolve again takes us to the brink of war, so be it:
We are already headed there and for only one reason: The appeasement of the Biden regime has invited dictators like Putin and Xi Jinping to probe our underbelly for weakness. Eventually, they will simply gut us if we let them.
