The CCP’s Whole-of-Society Warfare Against Us
Expert Panel Explores How the Enemy Pursues
American Destruction and Who’s Helping
WASHINGTON —The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is at war with America. That is clear from the rhetoric and conduct of its newly coronated emperor, Xi Jinping — the “unrestricted warfare” in which the CCP has engaged against America for decades and the declaration of “People’s War” in People’s Daily on the United States in May 2019. Even more ominous are the steps Xi’s regime is taking to mobilize and otherwise prepare his country for kinetic conflict.
Of particular importance in the latter regard is the so-called “civil-military fusion” that is part of a larger whole-of-society war footing on which the People’s Republic of China has been placed.
Accordingly, the next Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) webinar, “‘Civil-Military Fusion’: The CCP’s Whole-of-Society Warfare Against Us,” from 1-2:15 pm ET, Tuesday, December 20, will focus on America’s failure to recognize the portentous character of the CCP’s civil-military fusion doctrine and its implications for U.S. “engagement” with Communist Chinese companies, whether state-owned enterprises or nominally private sector ones.
A distinguished panel of national security practitioners and subject matter experts will address related topics including: the presence of, and danger posed by, Chinese companies here (and the failure of government agencies at both the federal and state level to recognize and protect the public against the threat they constitute); the presence of potentially highly problematic Chinese nationals — including CCP members and PLA officers — in U.S. businesses, labs and research institutions; the greenlighting of “verified” Chinese entities that have promised not to share American technology, intellectual property and data with their government, even though they are required to do so by Chinese law; and the ongoing U.S. underwriting of CCP companies recently whitewashed by the federal auditing agency known as the PCAOB — without regard for the fact that they are inherently a threat, whether they are directly supporting the PLA or simply part of the menace posed by civil-military fusion.
