According to a Chinese diplomat, who has sought asylum in Australia, China views the United States as enemy number one. China has sent spies, police and diplomats to the US and abroad to gather information on the US, no matter how trivial, in order to undermine the USA’s alliances. Some of the information gathered thus far pertains to aircraft intelligence. The diplomat stated that the US-Australia alliance is one of the major alliances China wishes to break and are doing so by giving Australia trade breaks and several high level visits. By breaking the US-Australia link China would bring Australia into the “grand neighboring region” dominated by China and force a wedge between the US and Australia.



"The United States is considered by the Chinese Communist Party as the largest enemy, the major strategic rival," Mr. Chen told The Washington Times in a telephone interview from Australia, where he is in hiding after breaking with Beijing in May.

All Chinese government officials are ordered to gather information about the United States, "no matter how trivial," he said. "The United States occupies a unique place in China's diplomacy," Mr. Chen said.

A pro-democracy activist who took part in the 1989 demonstrations in Beijing's Tiananmen Square, Mr. Chen, 37, spent 10 years as a Foreign Ministry official. He said he defected and sought political asylum in Australia to highlight repression of the Chinese people by their government and the ruling Communist Party, as well as the repression of dissidents such as democracy activists and the Falun Gong spiritual group.


Beijing devoted to weakening 'enemy' U.S., defector says


All this in light of other reports indicating that China’s military might is growing faster than expected. Also the diplomat states that China would initiate a war with Taiwan to gather political strength from the people.

Hmm, intertesting.
Just cause someone is a diplomat that does not mean they are important or in a high position...people usually associate diplomats as being "key" people in a government, not always the case.

This diplomat said things that we already know..nothing new.

We know China thinks the US is enemy#1....it's been like this for sometime now. We know they have spies in the US and even at our embassies over there, and they know the same about us. He probably provided other insight that was not made public....that's what I wanna know

Well, if they destroy the US, who will they sell all their cheap products to?

In destroying us, they destroy themselves.

An economic 'mutual assured destruction', I guess you could say.

I could be wrong but I heard his defection also had something to do with his opposition to prosecution of falun gong practitioners in China? Just a rumour. At any rate, he's dead meat.

how can he become a dead meat when he has already defected? Unless of course they turn him back to China.

I wonder if what he said is completely true though, but his claim seems to make logical sense.

No surprise, since China is the only nation on Earth to list the U.S as it's main enemy.

In my industry (manufacturing) China has been enemy number 1 already...

the US may smile and play stupid when it comes to china... I am quite sure that we also spy on everything they do, and also have a rather tenative peace, based mostly on not getting in each others way, and financial need for one another.

it will get us past the decade... maybe by then, America will be loved again, and the chinese oppression that scandalized it for years will bite it on its ass.
then the polls will say that WE are more liked than China

I saw Chen get interviewed on TV down here and it was very interesting to hear his story in person.

He said that China had an active policy of trying to turn Australia against America via various means, mainly buying us off via trade pressure.

He also said there were 1000 Chinese spies in this country, and that the US was officially enemy number one in the eyes of the Chinese government.
