China targets US troops

  |   By Polling+ Staff

As if the United States doesn’t have enough to deal with in terms of China, Fox News is now headlining this breaking news: https://www.foxnews.com/world/chinas-military-targets-american-troops-veterans-exploitation-campaign-general

China’s military targets American troops, veterans for exploitation campaign, general says

Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. wrote in a memo to Air Force personnel that service members should safeguard national security information from China

Fox starts out by reporting this:

“China is targeting current and former U.S. service members as part of an exploitation campaign to ‘fill gaps’ in its military capabilities, a top U.S. general says. 

The complex effort was detailed in an Air Force memo authored by Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., an Air Force official confirmed to Fox News. The Chinese military is pushing international firms that do business with the PRC to target and recruit ‘U.S. and NATO-trained military talent across specialties and career fields.’ 

‘By essentially training the trainer, many of those who accept contracts with these foreign companies are eroding our national security, putting the very safety of their fellow servicemembers and the country at risk,’ Brown wrote in the memo, which was first reported by the Washington Post. He encouraged service members to safeguard ‘our national defense information’ even after they leave the armed forces.”

Note that this report comes right on the heels of this China story also reported by Fox: https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/news/fbi-tracks-over-100-incidents-of-chinese-nationals-posing-as-tourists-to-breach-us-military-sites-report/ar-AA1gegWB

FBI tracks over 100 incidents of Chinese nationals posing as tourists to breach US military sites: report

That gem of a news story reported:

“The FBI and Department of Defense have reportedly tracked more than 100 incidents of Chinese nationalsposing as tourists to attempt to breach U.S. military bases and other federal sites. 

Those responsible, dubbed “gate crashers,” range from Chinese nationals detected crossing into a U.S. missile range in New Mexico, to scuba divers caught swimming in murky waters near a U.S. government rocket launch site in Florida, several U.S. officials recently told The Wall Street Journal. The growing trend represents a potential espionage threat, as authorities believe the Chinese government in some cases is compelling nationals into service in order to test out and report back about security practices at the installations.”
