Was DNI Clapper Right About China? YES!
The Silent Majority ^ | 03-11-11 | J.D. Longstreet

Although James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, is accused of having “blown it” by stating his belief that China presents the greatest threat to America at this time … I happen to believe that he may have inadvertently (Maybe intentionally?) swerved into the truth.

Don’t misunderstand; I have never been comfortable with Mr. Clapper in the EXTREMELY important position to which President Obama appointed him. I thought it was a very bad call on the President’s part, one of many such bad decisions made by our current President. And, just so we are clear on this: I’d like to see Mr. Clapper removed from his position as Director of National Intelligence. In fact, I’d like to see the position, itself, abolished. Seems to me it only adds another layer through which vital intelligence information must be filtered before it can be acted upon.

We have been predicting, for many years, that the next great shooting war will be between the US and China. I see no reason to change my mind now. In fact, as the US grows weaker and China grows stronger, each by the day, it seems, a military conflict between the two powers in almost inevitable.

Oh, I hear from readers that war between the US and China will never happen because we need each other. The US needs China’s money and China needs the American market place in which to sell their cheap products.

Of course he was right. But he wasn’t supposed to say so, out loud and in public. I guess he just couldn’t help himself.

Every indication so far is that the guy is a stupid jerk, totally unqualified for the job. Which is par for the course in this administration.

It’s just too bad if he’s fired for this, rather than for his earlier statement that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate, secular organization of good guys.

Did you see the fidgeting general sitting next to Clapper.
I don’t think Clapper was supposed to spill the beans. Kind of reminded me of the San Diego port official letting out that a weapon of mass affect had been intercepted.

Pansy Graham wants Clapper dismissed for speaking the truth. This is too amusing for words...
