China’s cyberwar against the US is not an isolated strategy. It is part of a full-spectrum covert war against the US that has been underway for decades.
Cyber security expert Casey Fleming has spent the past decade studying China. The Chinese have an entirely different mindset, with (a) a preference for asymmetric attacks on America’s blind-spots instead of head-on battles and (b) China’s goal is not simply to kick the US out of Asia, it is to ensure the US is totally destroyed/ended/finished i.e. never to rise again and threaten China.
