International ‘Arson’
Is the CCP Sparking World War III’s
Initial Conflagrations?

WASHINGTON — Amidst the violent conflagrations raging in eastern Europe and now the Middle East, the role of an “arsonist” in a position to have sparked them has gone largely unremarked.

Chinese Communist emperor Xi Jinping is not only arguably the principal beneficiary of the invasions of Ukraine and Israel. Prior to their launch, Vladimir Putin and top Iranian and Palestinian leaders respectively consulted in Beijing with Xi and Company.

Precisely what they discussed is not known to us as of now. What happened following those meetings, however, suggests that in each case the Chinese Communist Party was consulted about and quite possibly actually greenlighted and or contributed to the planning of the murderous Russian and jihadist invasions that now constitute two fronts in what increasingly appears to be the Third World War.

We are after all, on notice that Xi is determined to create a new global order under Chinese hegemony. In addition, he faces acute internal crises that give him an incentive to launch a war of his own against Taiwan and others — possibly including us. The more distracting “fires” elsewhere, the better his prospects for success.

The next Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) webinar, “International ‘Arson’: Is the CCP Sparking World War III’s Initial Conflagrations?”, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. ET today, Friday, October 13, will examine the question of whether Xi Jinping is deliberately inflaming the world, if so, to what end and where might this arsonist strike next? We will also consider what the United States must do now to prevent such further destabilization and prosecute and otherwise defeat its perpetrator.
