Pompeo hopeful China's Confucius Institutes will be gone from U.S. by year-end


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday he was hopeful that Chinese Confucius Institute cultural centers on U.S. university campuses would all be shut down by the end of the year.

"I think everyone's coming to see the risk associated with them," Pompeo told Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network, accusing the Chinese-government funded institutes of working to recruit "spies and collaborators" at U.S. colleges.

"I think these institutions can see that, and I'm hopeful we will get them all closed out before the end of this year."

Last month, Pompeo labeled the center that manages the Confucius Institutes in the United States "an entity advancing Beijing's global propaganda and malign influence" and required it to register as a foreign mission.

David Stilwell, the top U.S. diplomat for East Asia, said at the time that the dozens of Confucius Institutes on U.S. campuses were not being kicked out, but U.S. universities should take a "hard look" at what they were doing on campus.

Pompeo was asked about a warning last month by the Chinese government's top diplomat, Wang Yi, about the need to avoid a new Cold War, an apparent reference to escalating tensions between China and the United States.

Pompeo said "the Cold War analogy has some relevance," but the challenges with China were different.

"This is different from the Cold War in that we are challenged by a country with 1.4 billion people," he said.

"The challenges are different, they are economic challenges."

Pompeo referred to actions the Trump administration has taken to restrict the activities of Chinese firms like Huawei Technologies Co and said further moves could be expected.

"And now you'll see a broader effort, they'll be announcements, I think, in the coming days and weeks we will see the United States confront this in a very serious way, all for the benefit of the American economy," he said.

PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN - MAKE SURE THEY LEARN NOTHING ABOUT CHINA'S 5000 YEAR HISTORY, ITS CULTURE, ITS TRADITIONS AND ITS LANGUAGE.  BAN THE CONFUCIUS INSTITUTES.

As it is, the Chinese are learning everything about Americans, one way or another...

Advice to Trumpsters:  Smash and then bury all your china - it can send information about what you eat and drink to the CCP.

OIP.w7K_mQB4hCXcOeA-X2NQ3QHaHa?w=185&h=185&c=7&o=5&pid=1.7

As we get closer to November 3rd, what will be the next ban?  How about sanctions being declared against all countries that do business with China?  Take a guess...

LOL.  The GM,Ford and Chrysler factories are here and no way will they leave, what with more than four times the potential buyers here than there are in the USA, they build the cars here.  BUT - what components made in China are sent to those factories in America?  Ever wonder about that?

Here we have a man that is going to be executed in Iran because he was a part of a protest and our so called administration is worried about China and some supposed cold war....

It is almost like they are trying to start instances and conflict.

They're not just "trying", they're succeeding in increasingly provoking China militarily and economically. Trump is hoping for a reaction that will allow him to hold himself out as some kind of hero.  He has no concept of a government that's smarter and more patient than he is.

China must be very afraid of the US.

Why? When was the last time the US won a war in Asia? WWII.

Since then, China has watched the US fuck up in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan...

... also... the US has been defeated several times since the last French defeat...

It's childish, of course, to bring the French into the conversation. They lost a fore ordained colonial war. America picked up that war and wasted billions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives... on the way to its own even more humiliating defeat.

Do you really want to cite America's Asian wars to prove military prowess?

I have no need to cite anything in this conversation that i already haven't.

Imagine claiming we lost the Iraq war.  .  We destroyed an army, deposed the leader, installed a democracy and left.  

If that’s not winning a war, pretty much no one has ever won a war.

I don't care. It amuses me to observe how Super-Patriots spend so much energy making light of other countries.

I suppose they do this because they understand that America's military successes are actually pretty rare. 

France won the United States's independence from the Brits. 

The War of 1812 was a draw... if we squint. Otherwise, it was a defeat.

We massacred lots of Native Americans, and stole their land. 

We defeated Mexico! Yay!

North and South slaughtered each other, for very little result. 

We massacred lots more Native Americans. 

We defeated Spain! Yay! 

We came late to the party in 1917. We helped the winners... some. 

We came late to the party in 1941. We helped the winners... a lot.

We drew in Korea. 

We lost badly in Vietnam. 

We conquered Granada! Yay!! 

We led a winning coalition in Gulf War I. 

We fucked around in Iraq for fifteen years, leaving the country in worse shape than we found it.

We are still fucking around in Afghanistan, after nearly two decades... and everything indicates that we will leave that country in roughly the same condition as when we invaded.

... 

As for France... It has been an identifiable country for over a thousand years. There have been lots of wars. Victories and defeats. So gesticulations mean little.

Again Bob. For all of human history, destroying the enemy army and deposing it's leadership constitutes winning the war.

Shouting racism won't work this time.  China has become the weakest link in the supply chain.

Businesses are taking a sober look at their dependence upon offshore subcontractors.  Logistics doesn't replace resilience.  While relocating to other Asian countries provides temporary retention of profits, the pandemic has revealed a lack of resilience posing an existential threat.  Disruptions in supply chains have resulted in lost opportunities.  A lost opportunity is gone forever.

Obviously I forgot to lock this seed when I went to sleep, and now I'm going out, so since it was used as an excuse by the Trumpsters to go way off topic I've decided to lock it for good, with the belief IMO that obviously Trump and his disciples would prefer to keep Americans, especially vulnerable students, IGNORANT - that would be to Trump's benefit.
