When World was all set to believe that President Trump’s China Relation is on a good note and his meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un can force N.Korea to destroy its Nuclear weapon,President Turmp’s Spy Chief has come out with a different version in its annual worldwide report threat assessment.It got no attention in news media because Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Director of CIA Gina Haspel kept it a close secret.The report says that Kim Jong Un has no intention to give up his nuclear weapons and Iran is all set to plan to have them,how ever it might not have them. Gina Haspel also warned his intelligence officer to ‘go to balckboard’
Largely Dan Coats and Gina Haspel’s Annual World Wide Report on Threat Assessment figures out three trends.
- Russia and China are getting closer- It is much understood that since very past USA’s relation with Moscow and Beijing have been at very low and Gina Haspel & Dan Coats approves it.While report predicts that though Russia is declining but its aggressive actor( Vladimir Putin) is a tested player when it comes to election meddling and information warfare against USA,China is not simply a revisionist but is pursuing “ a long term strategy to achieve global superiority”. USA’s spy chief Gina Haspel has also highlighted that “China and Russia are more aligned than any point since 1950”. They will likely become even closer because of their shared opposition to democratic values and U.S. global leadership. Russia and China are now cooperating on military exercises and arms sales, energy deals and economic ties, efforts to weaken international norms surrounding human rights, and many other fronts. This cooperation better enables each country to challenge the U.S. China, for instance, has improved its anti-access/area denial military capabilities by buying (and, in some cases, copying) Russian military technology. Even where Russia and China are not cooperating directly — such as in supporting authoritarian regimes and undermining democratic governance abroad — their efforts have mutually reinforcing
- The second point says which Gina Haspel has highlighted with a warning that some US allies seeks rather more greater independence from Washington in response to President Trump’s changing policies on security and trade and are becoming open to multilateral partnerships.
What political scientists call “hedging” is becoming more common. Countries from Australia and Japan to France and Germany are trying to develop new partnerships that would soften the blow if it turns out that Washington can no longer be counted on. Talk of a European Union army, Japan’s efforts to cultivate closer ties with Australia and India, and the Philippines’ shift toward accommodation of China are all part of this pattern. These tendencies could become more pronounced if Trump or another skeptic of American globalism is elected in 2020.
- The final and third assessment of Annual Report prepared by CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats highlights that there is the role for countries which are preparing their own advanced and emerging technologies. The intelligence community provides some assessments and predictions in this area. China now has the ability to launch cyberattacks that could cripple U.S. critical infrastructure for days or even weeks; Russia is “staging cyberattack assets” that would allow it to severely disrupt U.S. society in a crisis; even relatively unsophisticated competitors will use cyberattacks against America in the coming years.
