[The Epoch Times, November 20, 2023](Epoch Times reporter Xiao Lusheng compiled and reported) Recently, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said in an interview with the U.S. media that China controlled by CCP leader Xi Jinping is not in line with the interests of the United States. ; If the current party leader disappears tomorrow, major changes will occur.
On November 19, U.S. time, Boston economic magazine “The Wire China” published an exclusive interview with former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
Republican Robert Gates served as the 22nd Secretary of Defense of the United States from 2006 to 2011. The president of the United States at the time was George Bush.
During the interview, Gates said that a China run by Xi Jinping (the current leader of the Chinese Communist Party) is not in the interest of the United States. He mentioned the friction between the US destroyer and the Chinese Communist Party, but did not specify the specific time when the friction occurred.
On June 3 this year, the U.S. Navy’s Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Chung-Hoon and the Canadian frigate USS Montreal were sailing together. When passing through the Taiwan Strait, a Chinese Communist warship penetrated straight in front of the destroyer USS Chung-Hoon, forcing it to The US ship changed course. When the two ships were closest, they were less than 150 yards (about 137 meters) apart and almost collided. The move was accused of being a defensive response by China to try to drive the United States out of Asia.
In the interview, Gates talked about the current leader of the Chinese Communist Party.
He said that if you just look at actions, you will clearly feel that Xi Jinping believes that the CCP is losing control of China’s internal affairs. The Chinese Communist Party’s taboo is Gorbachev, because they know that the Communist Party of the Soviet Union disintegrated in his hands.
Gorbachev was a key figure in the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the last leader of the Soviet Union. He died on August 30, 2022. Leaders around the world have praised his contribution to ending the Cold War and promoting freedom, but only China has been lukewarm. Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping once asked officials behind closed doors to “profoundly” remember the lessons of the former Soviet Union. Current affairs commentator Li Linyi said at the time that for the CCP, once the general trend is over and people are distracted, it will be useless for the top leadership of the CCP to have power. The CCP will encounter increasing crises in the future.
When asked, is Xi Jinping, the current leader of the Chinese Communist Party, an anomaly? Former U.S. Defense Secretary Gates said that he doesn’t know, but if he disappears tomorrow, “I bet that a major change will be that the CCP will soon return to a situation of collective leadership to avoid one person having so much power. But whether the role of the Communist Party is I don’t know if it will change.”
Earlier, authoritative sources revealed to The Epoch Times that Xi is surrounded by experts who advise him. He is particularly afraid of being assassinated and has taken many precautions.
The “Ode” of the 46th image in the famous ancient Chinese prophecy book “Tuibei Tu” says: “There is a soldier with a bow, who only says that I am a white-headed man. There is a golden sword hidden in the east door, and the warrior enters the imperial palace through the back door.” External analysis. It is believed that this statement hints at Xi Jinping’s future direction. The traditional character “xi” is composed of “yu” and “bai”, while “yu” and “bai” appear in “pulsatilla”. “The golden sword is hidden in the east gate, and the warrior enters the imperial palace through the back door” describes a scene in which assassins rush into the palace to assassinate the emperor. “There was a soldier with a bow”, implying that the assassin was a soldier and also had a bow.
In addition to prophecies, the Chinese people shouted slogans such as “The Communist Party should step down” and “Xi Jinping should step down”. For example, in November this year, the leader of the Communist Party of China attended the APEC Summit in San Francisco. Outside the venue, Chinese people who resisted the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party shouted: “Step down the Communist Party” and “Step down Xi Jinping.” In November last year, a large number of people took to the streets on Urumqi Middle Road in Shanghai to protest the CCP’s three-year “extreme purge” and also chanted this slogan.
Wang Youqun, a writer for Wei Jianxing, former member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau and Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, recently wrote in The Epoch Times that people at home and abroad on both sides of the Pacific actually shouted the same slogans, and they were so loud and exciting that they resounded through the sky. Perhaps this is the human equivalent of the celestial phenomenon of “Heaven destroys the CCP”.
