Sina Military: To Curb China, U.S. Resorts to Its Old Way against the Soviet Union

On March 29, 2019, Sina’s military channel reported, citing Lianhe Zaobao, that “some former U.S. government officials and policy advisers revived a committee that had been established during the Cold War in Washington to deal with the so-called ‘threat from China.’” Lianhe Zaobao is a Singapore-based Chinese-language newspaper.

According to Sina, Brian Kennedy, the chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China, played up his remarks at a press conference held on the 25th that the committee was established to help the United States recognize various conventional and unconventional threats and think about how to resist. He also claimed that the committee is completely independent and bipartisan. Citing Lianhe Zaobao, Sina stated that some U.S. conservatives established a similar committee during the Cold War targeting the Soviet Union.  Citing the Russian Независимая газета, Sina reported that the committee requested, during the Cold War, that the budget for the Pentagon be tripled. {Editor’s Note: The Free Beacon published a description in English}.
