US Navy Secretary: China’s the greatest threat in history to our country

The U.S. Navy’s top civilian leader, Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite, said this week that China poses a greater threat to the U.S. than anything else in history. “I think [China] is probably the greatest threat to our country that Americans, writ large, do not understand,” Braithwaite said during a Wednesday event at the Navy Memorial, reported by Military.com. “… I literally believe with all my heart and soul — and I can’t stress this any more — what we are seeing emerging is a threat beyond any comparison ever in the history of our country.”

Braithwaite made his remarks following a week-long trip to the Asia-Pacific region where he met with local leaders in Japan, Singapore, Guam and Palau, and with U.S. sailors and Marines operating in those countries.
