Michael Pillsbury.

He apparently has quite a supporter in President Trump.

He speaks Mandarin, and travels to China quite often. And he thinks America is very, very naïve in dealing with China.

I have nowhere near his experience, but I agree with the gentleman completely.

This is a good article. If you would like, read it.

My compliments to Trump, Mr. Pillsbury, and to this administration.

It seems, finally some adults are in charge.

Good article.

Make no mistake about it, the creeping dragon means to take over the entire word, based on the ancient premise that they carry civilization and all the rest of the world are subservient, uncivilized troglodytes. Yes, it is race based. And they are now destroying Tibet and the Uighur region of China, but we hear little or nothing.

They would so subjugate the whole world.

Pillsbury is a good man.He also knows all of this.

Very good article. Glad you posted it.

Of course, Politico can't help being sour about anything related to the truth. Take this snippet for example...

An unrepentant self-promoter, Pillsbury has twice brought boxes of the book to Capitol Hill to distribute to members and their aides.
Passing out copies of one's book FOR FREE isn't exactly self-promotion, is it? It's called selling your point of view.

(Some respected China experts have called his writings “shoddy” and infected by paranoid notions of Chinese malevolence.)

The ubiquitous “Some”, which means “Politico-approved”. Of course, they are “respected”...BY POLITICO”! Disgusting anti-Trump bias shows its ugly face again.

PING. Quite a good read about an increasingly influential China hawk counseling our President. I read the story top to bottom.

He should rethink his travel schedule if this trade war continues to heat up.

Look up John Leighton Stuart, American missionary, diplomat and China expat. He supported the Nationalist but argued for engagement w/ the Chicoms before Washington caught a clue about where things were going there.

It is possible that had the US followed his advice prior to Korea things could have been different. Meanwhile, Truman Admin was playing Chicken Little w/ China and lamely bailed after the failed Marshall mission in ‘46-47.

Mao understood that Stuart was dangerous, attacked him for “cultural aggression” and removed all references to him and his legacy in China.

Truman Admin caught on too late and Korean War followed.
