Chinese Communist Super Soldiers By Brian Simpson

Move over Captain America, now it is the time for the communist super soldier:

“Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Sunday said the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is using “gene editing” to boost its military.

Ratcliffe noted that if the CCP supersedes the United States to become the world’s superpower, it would imperil “individual liberties, freedoms” around the world, adding that “free enterprise [is] all at stake.”

China is “altering DNA,” citing intelligence reports, Ratcliffe, the top U.S. intelligence official, said on Fox News Sunday.

“It’s one of the things our intelligence shows that China is doing. … The People’s Republic of China has 2 million strong in its military, and it’s trying to make them stronger through, you know, gene editing,” he remarked, adding that it’s “just one of the ways that, you know, China is trying to essentially dominate the planet and set the rules in the world order.”

Citing the CCP’s rampant human rights violations, Ratcliffe said what the world’s people “need to understand is this is an authoritarian regime,” while adding that the regime “doesn’t care about people’s individual rights.”

“We’ve seen what they’ve done to the Uighurs; we’ve seen what they’ve done in Hong Kong. It’s about putting the state first, and that is the exact opposite of what has always made America great. Individual liberties, freedoms, free enterprise those things are all at stake if China dominates,” he said.

Last week, the DNI chief wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, characterizing the Chinese regime as “national security threat No. 1,” while elaborating on human testing.

“China has even conducted human testing on members of the People’s Liberation Army in hope of developing soldiers with biologically enhanced capabilities,” he said. “There are no ethical boundaries to Beijing’s pursuit of power.”

To effectively combat this enhancement of humans, one needs to go straight to AI and robotics, for there are limits to biology that machines transcend, such as with strength.
