A report from the Daily Wire states that “two China policy analysts warned that communist China is going to be ‘quite aggressive’ toward the United States because they believe that they will surpass it and do not see President Joe Biden as a tough opponent.”
Both Dr. Jonathan Ward and Gordan Chang spoke to Fox News this weekend to sound the alarm of China’s awareness of Joe Biden’s plan to be weak on China. Gordan Chang, the author of ‘The Coming Collapse of China,” told Fox, “Well, Biden right now – the Chinese are testing him, but they don’t really have to lift a finger to do this because he’s giving them everything that they want.”
In the interview, Chang was asked to respond to China warning countries to “stay out of China’s business” as the country increases hostility toward countries like Taiwan and India. China believes they control Taiwan whether the Taiwanese agree or not.
Chang said that “the Chinese are preparing for war. He said that China “issued new amendments to its national defense law, effective the beginning of this year, which allows the Chinese military to mobilize without civilian control.”
Chang continued, “And, indeed, many people say China is just bluffing. But history says that when countries bluff and threaten war, they usually provoke one. So, therefore, all of these maneuvers against Taiwan, these threats against the U.S., they are consequential.”
Dr. Jonathan Ward, founder of Atlas Organization and author of ‘China’s Vision of Victory,’ that Joe Biden’s weakness is shown with actions like “joining the Paris accord” that holds countries that produce fewer carbon emissions to a higher standard than it holds China – one of the world’s leading producers of pollution.
Dr. Ward cautioned that “we have really got to be concerned because China is looking right now and thinking it’s going to get everything.” He continued, “I think the thing is, they think that they’re going to beat us in this new Cold War, or whatever we want to call it.”
Dr. Ward said that “the contest with China is one that they believe that they will win. China believes that “Covid-19 has put them in an advantageous position. [China has] said for a long time that they’re going to turn crisis into an opportunity, strengthen their position in the world economy.”
During the pandemic, China was ‘the only major economy to grow in 2020’ after the country “surpassed the U.S. as the leading destination for FDI,” according to Dr. Ward.

FDI is foreign direct investment, and it is something that has been flowing from countries like the UK and Germany into China. China spent 2020 securing its positions globally by attacking Hong Kong protestors and locking up Chinese dissenters, effectively taking complete control over the Hong Kong trade market.
“What the new administration is dealing with is this economic contest. China knows that if they become the world’s dominant economy, the rest will fall into place. So, they feel very confident. And they’re going to be quite aggressive. So, the new administration has to be ready for all of that,” finished Dr. Ward.
