This set again! One year after the US media hyped the end of the Afghan war, the CIA's focus "turned more to China"


2022-08-08: [Chinese Article Link Original title: Again! A year after the end of the US-Med war in Afghanistan, the CIA focused on "More to China." “One year after the end of the war in Afghanistan, the spy agency turned its focus (work) to China. The Associated Press revealed on this topic on 8th that, at a recent closed meeting between the leaders of the CIA Counter-Terrorism Centre, the CIA “Big Two” David Cohen had explicitly stated that combating extremist organizations such as Al-Qaida remained a priority for the CIA, but that the agency would increasingly turn its funding and resources to China. For some time now, officials of United States and British intelligence services have been eager to campaign the so-called “China threat.” On 21 last month, Richard Moore, head of the British Military Intelligence Service, declared that China is now the top intelligence task of the British Agency, surpassing the fight against terrorism. China has rejected such statements on a number of previous occasions, emphasizing that it is the few countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, that have created an international confrontation that has brought chaos and scourge to many parts of the world. At the beginning of the report, the Associated Press mentioned that earlier this month, the CIA drone killed Al-Qaida leader Zawahiri, “which indicates that the fight against terrorism did not come to mind afterwards”, and that “it did not change the message conveyed by Deputy Director David Cohen at that closed meeting a few weeks ago” — although the United States will continue to pursue terrorists, it is also imperative to try to better understand and confront Beijing. Reports go on to state that, a year after the end of the war in Afghanistan, United States President Biden and senior national security officials rarely talk about counter-terrorism, but speak more about the so-called political, economic and military “threat” posed by China and Russia. At the same time, there has been a quiet change within the intelligence services of the United States — hundreds of officials have been transferred to positions related to China, including some formerly engaged in counter-terrorism work. In the same article, the Associated Press also lists a number of American politicians who have spoken out to the so-called “China threat doctrine.” For example, former Army Rangers who served in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now Democratic Congressman Jason Crowe, who claims that the United States has paid too much attention to the fight against terrorism over the past few years, but that terrorist organizations “will not destroy the American way of life...and that China will”. According to several anonymous sources to the Associated Press, the United States Congress has been urging the CIA and other intelligence agencies to make the Chinese issue a top priority, but diverting resources to Chinese affairs requires cutting costs in other areas, including counter-terrorism. One source stated that, as part of the “transformation”, United States Congress committees were working to track the use of intelligence agencies' funds in China's affairs and to seek more details on the contribution of specific projects to the mission. For some time now, officials of United States and British intelligence agencies have repeatedly fabricated the so-called “China threat doctrine.” On 21 last month, the head of British MI6, Richard Moore, declared at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, United States, that China had become the top intelligence task of British MI6 and that it was “more important than counter-terrorism”. At that time, the spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom said that China was committed to the path of peaceful development, had always been a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development and a guardian of the international order, and had always been a firm force for the maintenance of world peace and the promotion of common development. A small number of countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, have committed infiltration, subversion and aggression against other countries at will, creating an international confrontation and bringing chaos and scourge to many parts of the world. At the beginning of July, the heads of the United States and British intelligence services claimed at a joint press conference that China posed the greatest and long-term threat to the national and economic security of many countries. The spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian, pointed out in that connection that the relevant United States politicians had always spoken out about China's threats and attacked China in the dark. The statements made by this intelligence official reveal their deep-rooted Cold War zero-sum mentality and ideological bias. As is well known, the statements made about British intelligence officials are the home of MI5 and MI6 as British intelligence services. The publication of such inexplicable and threatening reports is simply an attempt to project their defamatory behaviour on the Chinese side with the aim of developing a “China threat doctrine” and provoking antagonistic confrontation.
