Pentagon Has “Global Campaign Plan For China” Amid Unprecedented Military Buildup

  • Pentagon Has “Global Campaign Plan For China” Amid Unprecedented Military Buildup

    In order to combat China’s rapid military modernization, which we have been documenting over and over and over for years, the Pentagon says it has developed a “global campaign” to take on Beijing, which it claims is “one of the central challenges” to national security.


    We have a global campaign plan for China. Each one of the combatant commanders addresses China in the context of that global campaign plan,” said General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, speaking to the House Armed Services Committee during a congressional hearing. The new strategy will fall under the coordinating authority of Admiral Harry Harris, Commander of the US Pacific Command.  

    “But each of the combatant commanders has supporting plans in their respective areas of responsibilities that address specifically Chinese activity and capability in their areas,” added Dunford.

    Dunford made the comments in response to a question from Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), who noted China’s regional expansion into the Indo Pacific region and elsewhere.

    Their activities are present (in) Africa, Europe, Latin America, et cetera. What efforts are you aware of being taken by each of the combatant commands in the different AORs (areas of responsibility) to counter the China challenge?” she asked Dunford, who described China as one of the central challenges to national security.
