…“The People’s Republic of China” (PRC), the brainchild of the Marxist Mao, with its 1.34 billion people, has been industrializing the country and modernizing its multimillion army. And for the last 40 years, those scientifically and technologically advanced countries have been keeping their technology from getting into the hands of absolutist China. Up until now. According to the Heritage Foundation’s WebMemo#3097 on China, of Jan.18, 2011, the “EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton is pushing for the lifting of the EU’s 1989-imposed arms embargo on China. … Lady Ashton is reported to be working closely with France and Spain to take the issue forward this year, describing the embargo as “a major impediment” to intensifying relations between Brussels and Beijing.”

And further: “During his visit to Europe, Vice-Premier Li announced that he would purchase 7.78 billion of Spanish debt amidst Madrid’s worsening financial crisis. China has also purchased over 1 billion in Portuguese debt. … Beijing sees these purchases as political and diplomatic investments. Beijing certainly has further financial reserves to draw on, as well as more false promises regarding greater access to Chinese markets. … If EU member states are being bought [by communist China], it is because they want to be bought [by communist China].”

She wants [and has all the power and means] to develop a market for EU military technology and hardware in China.

According to a comment on a London Telegraph blog post, “If Europe gives China access to military technology, it may well drive a wedge between European and non-European NATO members, which could lead to NATO dissolution, the modern world’s most successful defensive alliance, something Lady Ashton is desperately trying to destroy.”…
