China condemns US for supplying weapons to ISIS

Weapons US supplied ISIS through Iraqi troops

Weapons US supplied ISIS through Iraqi troops

The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media:

The US reports that it is rushing weapons to Iraq to fight against ISIS, but Chinese media condemns the US, saying they are giving weapons to ISIS to fight against the US and its allies.

Huanqiu.com published quite a few photos of the US heavy weapons Iraqi troops left to ISIS when they retreated from Ramadi, the second largest Iraqi city.

The weapons are almost all intact. They gave the impression that the weapons were left to ISIS without fighting.

The report says this is not the first time the US has done this. The US gave China’s Kuomintang (KMT) a lot of weapons to help it fight Chinese Communists. When the KMT was defeated, US weapons were captured by the communists, who later used those weapons to attack US troops in the Korean War.

Huanqiu continues that, decades later, the US supplied weapons to South Vietnamese troops to fight Vietnamese communists. When South Vietnamese troops were defeated by the communists, the communists used the weapons for regional hegemony and invasion of Cambodia.

That was sad but at least KMT and South Vietnamese troops did fight the communists. They lost the weapons to the communists as they were really defeated by their enemies.

The report reflects that what is ridiculous now is the loss of US advanced weapons to ISIS. Judging by the released photos of the weapons left by Iraqi troops to ISIS in Ramadi, the weapons seemed to be given to ISIS on purpose. ISIS retreated from Ramadi on purpose to enable Iraqi troops to send US weapons into the City. When the weapons were ready for ISIS to take, Iraqi troops retreated to let ISIS take the weapons.

That was in fact a fake battle.

Huanqiu says if the war in Iraq goes on that way, the US will eventually be forced to send its own troops to Iraq to fight ISIS. Then US troops will again be attacked by its enemy with US weapons. It will just be a repetition of the situation in the Korean War.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
