As US Confronts Coronavirus Pandemic, China And Others Exploit The Threat

When General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chief’s of Staff, announced that the U.S. wouldn’t let the cartels “get past jump street” after the Pentagon received intelligence that they were planning to exploit the coronavirus crisis, he was not just sending a message to the drug cartels, he was sending a “message to every enemy state actor across the globe that is thinking about taking advantage of this situation in the United States” amid the coronavirus outbreak, Sara A. Carter told listeners during her podcast “The Sara Carter Show” Thursday.

One of those foreign adversaries is China, Carter explained. Not only is China the origin of the pandemic, it is responsible for the manufacturing of the illicit narcotic fentanyl that’s been the fuel behind the drug crisis in the U.S. and it’s been able to bring the drug into the country with the help of their distributors, the cartels.

“Remember, China imports so much fentanyl into the United States. And the reason we’re losing so many of our young lives, so many Americans in this drug war is because of that.” Carter said, “It is because of fentanyl. It is because of the amount of narcotics that are coming in through Mexico. Remember, China pushes them in through Mexico, Mexican drug cartels then push them into the United States. Although the cartels have taken over some of the production of fentanyl inside Mexico.”

Further exacerbating the problem is China’s push into South China Sea, rich in fossil fuel. In recent days the Chinese military has deployed large-scale military assets into the area and conducted military drills. The U.S. military is having to reshuffle its resources and assisting with transferring much needed medical equipment and deploying its medical personal and ships to aid in the coronavirus outbreak.

The U.S. Navy is doing its best in attempting to balance out the needs of fighting the COVID19 pandemic and keeping watch over enemy actors. For example, the New York Times reported that the Navy is “refusing to completely evacuate an aircraft carrier where 93 service members have been confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus.”

Moreover, China has still not been held accountable for the mass quantities of fentanyl being illegally shipped into the United States. Gordon Chang, a China Expert, agreed with her on the issue. He warned that China’s control of fentanyl trafficking into the U.S. is a major national security issue.

He said that the problem will only be resolved if the U.S. puts China in check.

“These fentanyl gangs are multinational,” said Chang. “They are large. They’re well organized and in a totalitarian surveillance society that China now runs, China has to know what’s going on, and, yet, these gangs continue to operate selling fentanyl into the United States and killing Americans by the tens of thousands every year.”

He continued, “So we have to, as the General (Milley) said, these gangs are killing Americans…And China is killing Americans and we’re not going to solve the fentanyl problem until we solve the China political problem. So this is all bound up together and we’ve got to recognize that this is part of an existential attack on American society where Americans are dying and Americans are not only dying.”

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world

China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Key findings of the report are below.

“Persuaded to return”

According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.

Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.

The Nine Forbidden Countries

China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.

Conclusion

According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
