Rasmussen Lets It All Out—Global War on China

June 19, 2020 (EIRNS)—Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Prime Minister of Denmark and former Secretary General of NATO, is sponsoring the Copenhagen Democracy Summit this week to gather China-bashers from around the world. This includes U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Obama Secretary of State John Kerry, Madeline Albright, Joshua Wong of Hong Kong anarchy fame, and Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.

Rasmussen demonstrated the purpose of the gathering in an interview with Weekendavisen. He said:

“We saw that after the financial crisis, when the Chinese made strategic investments all over Europe, where businesses and infrastructure were cheap for sale. They invested in energy plants and they bought up high-tech companies. There are so many people in Europe who have become so economically dependent on the Chinese that they dare not criticize them at all for fear of reprisals. And we have seen in particular among small countries that they are being subjected to Chinese pressure. Because if we do not do so, there is a considerable risk that it will be the autocratic forces of the world that will dominate. That is why it is extremely important that it should be seen not just as a Danish problem, not just as a European problem, and not just transatlantic. It’s a global challenge.”
