This is at the top of CNN today:

There is a 90% chance that this is simply made up by some intelligence agency.

The CNN article only gives his surname – “Zhou.” For those who don’t know, there are tens of millions of people in China with that surname.

I don’t think it would be physically possible to navigate both the Chinese and Taiwanese navies, let alone the American spy grid.

Furthermore, I don’t really think you could get across the entire strait in a dinghy. It’s 200 kilometers.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government has close to a 99% approval rating among Chinese people.

How would anyone know what the true approval rating is? Does the author rely on a poll conducted by the CCP?

The Chinese people have been subjected to authoritarian rule for many thousands of years, mostly in a feudal setting but now in a communist setting, which isn't much different. Independent thinking has been bred out of them. I suspect they are by now rather genetically predisposed to subjugation, so whatever approval the gov has there is probably a result of that.

No, I don't believe the Chinese gov is any benevolent entity. Like all rising powers, they are power hungry and seek world dominance no less than any other rising power in world history.
