Alert: Pentagon Official Issues Warning About China’s AI Drone Ambitions

(Tea Party 247) – Earlier this month, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper issued a warning during a speech on artificial intelligence at the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence public conference that China is exporting what he calls “next-generation drones” to countries in the Middle East, according to Flight Global.

“Beijing has made it abundantly clear that it intends to be the world leader in AI by 2030,” Esper said. “While the US faces a mighty task in transitioning the world’s most advanced military to new AI-enabled systems, China believes it can leapfrog our current technology and go straight to the next generation.”

Middle Eastern nations that are unable to purchase advanced US drones due to weapons embargos have been turning to the Chinese defense industry instead to enhance their own defense (or attack) systems.

This has supported China’s ambitious expansion across the Middle Eastern weapons market, where there are many strategic US military bases along with future and current routes for the Communist Chinese Belt and Road Initiative.

“As we speak the Chinese government is already exporting some of the most advanced military aerial drones to the Middle East, as it prepares to export its next-generation stealth UAVs when those come online,” Esper said. “Also, Chinese weapons manufacturers are selling drones advertised as capable of autonomy, including the ability to conduct lethal, targeted strikes.”

Chinese AI killer drones have been popping up in the skies above nations such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Nigeria, Yemen, Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates.

This should deeply concern you.

Over the last decade, the Pentagon has been angered to see Chinese drone exports increase so significantly to the region, cutting into the US’ market share.

Esper didn’t specifically name any one. AI killing drones. However, as Intellihub points out, the CASC Rainbow “is the most popular Chinese drone that is currently being exported to the Middle East.”

China is ruthless, make no mistake. This is a nation that has been robbing American markets blind and stealing our data at every chance.

They are relying on their advanced AI technology to launch a large-scale attack on their enemies as well as their own citizen to gain complete global control. Whether or not it’s possible is unclear, but one thing is certain: it would be completely foolish to underestimate.

  1. Everything China makes for us could be easily converted to military use just our own assembly lines were converted to military use during WWII. We need to start distancing ourselves from China and seek better military and economic cooperation with India, the world’s largest Democracy. They are in critical areas China would like to control and they have the population to match the Chinese in the event of a conflict. We shouldn’t seek war or bad relations with China just stop giving them our technology and jobs, and let them know the free ride is over. Countries like China, Russia and Iran steal our technology which saves them billions in R&D and gives them the opportunity to improve on those systems that our military needs to fight and win.

  2. TRUMP IS THER WAY UP AND OUT. ANYONE WHO OPPOSES HIM MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.
    OBAMA HATED THE USA. HE AND ERIC HOLDER PERSECUTED US TROOPS. THE PENTAGOON AND THE SNAKE DEPARTMENT HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. THEY THINK THEY RUN THE GOVERNMENT. THE COMMUNIST PARTY HAS TOO MANY CANDIDATES. WE ONLY HAVE ONE.GOD’S INTERVENTION EL TRUMPO. LATINO FAMILIES AND GOSPEL BLACKS ARE VOTING FOR TRUMP.

  3. It will take a wake up call from God to make our liberals see they are the problem working to destroy the conservatives who are a MUST to SAVE this country with Godly principles

  4. So Pentagon Officials what are you going to do? How are you going to keep America SAFE? How are you going to keep our Power Grid from collapsing from another country that would like to take it down?

  5. Just another reason why a strong military and defense budget must always be our number one priority . We must not become complacent and so comfortable with our lives that we forget there are enemies that will envy our wheat fields our resources and see most of us as week and would love to have the 2nd Amendment abolished

  6. Of course they are doing this while Washington Politics focuses on a fake impeachment and ignoring all of this. What have the Democrats done ? Just working on winning the next election. What have the Republicans done – focus on trying to defend the daily accusations that this or that person sneezed in the wrong direction and should be
    impeached so Queen Nancy can take over !
    Who are the traitors not doing what they were elected to do ? I am sure that Chine is snickering their little yellow hineys off !

  7. The ChiComs have NOTHING on the U.S. They will be “shot out the sky” like clay pigeons. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  8. This is really scary stuff. We need to slow down or even ban AI technology which is extreme automaton. Robots will be doing everything for us; and soon there will be do jobs around. But Communist Red China is making us push the limits on AI technology whether we like it or not. Pretty soon we will end up with computers controlling us like the Borg on Star Trek or HAL on 2001 A Space Odyssey.

  9. A lot of our technology was not stolen. Under Bill Clinton all of our patients where given to China. The US even sent Techs to install it in their (China’s ) computers. Trade, Clinton got a lot of money for his campaign. That includes our missile guidance system. Before we weren’t worried about their missile hitting us, because their missile guidance system sucked. Thanks to Mr. Clinton they can and to make things worst it is our guidance system North Korea is using ( they got it from China ) Then there was a lot of reverse engineering. Microsoft got a lot of tech. from buying the product and reverse engineering it. There a lot of ways to steal tech.

  10. The time has come for a facedown with the slant eyed communist thugs. No more Mr. Sissy Mr. president. Warn all American citizens to leave China within 60 days and break diplomatic ties with these evil, war mongering ad lying pigs. Also any company that decides they are big shots, all employees who remain behind including the greedy CEOs their citizenship will be revoked at the end of the grace period to get the hell out of China!

  11. All American patriots need to put aside partisan politics and embrace non-partisan measures to fix our nation before the pro- socialists and the globalists make self-defense and militia-defense of our nation impossible. What is it going to take to wake you up?
    In Jan or Feb look for a new book: World Beyond Reason: The Orwellian Factor.
