Pompeo to Portray China as a Threat in Major Arctic Policy SpeechWill reject China's claim of being a 'near-Arctic state'

One day after the Pentagon issued a new report dramatically hyping China as a grave threat to the United States, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is said to be planning a major anti-China speech during his visit to Finland on Monday.

Monday’s speech is expected to be a major US policy speech on the Arctic, and territorial claims therein. Pompeo is expected to spin China as threatening the entire Arctic, and will reject Chinese claims to be a “near-Arctic state” because of its interest in using the area as a shipping route.

The focus of Pompeo’s attack on China, however, is likely to be totally distinct from the Arctic, and just a continuation of the flurry of vague allegations that the Pentagon started with in its own report, part of a broader US policy to portray China as a major enemy and threat to American dominance worldwide.

To that end, the Pentagon is alleging that China might, at some point in the future, conceivably position nuclear submarines in the Arctic Ocean. To be clear, there is no evidence or even claim that China is doing this now, rather the Pentagon expressed concern that at some point in the future, for some reason, they might do so. The report also added that Denmark was concerned about that.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; when Pompeo was a kid in elementary school, did he ever get a gold star on his report card in that little section, "Works well with others"?!?!?

Because right now, with the exceptions of Israel and Saudi Arabia, the man appears to be the most consistently disagreeable guy in DC.

These are threats, engineered to get ever-more money for the Pentagon, and arrived at by some very dubious thought processes, most of which have little to no foundation in facts.

And Secretary Pompeo, there is a question which haunts me, and I think my brother and sister Americans deserve a straight answer here: why is the US government objecting to the "Silk Road" concept, rather than joining it, and enabling American companies to trade with Chinese companies, and vise versa?!?

Trading always trumps war, in my world, at least.
