The Chinese government is enforcing arbitrary laws to prosecute foreign nationals in the name of espionage. The safety and security of its citizens at home and abroad are of the utmost importance to the US, which is why they must heed the warning and be aware of any risks they may face if traveling to the PRC.
This is not the first travel advisory instructing Americans to avoid traveling to China, and it will likely not be the last, as such warnings result from tensions between the world’s two largest economies rather than actual or perceived risk to life. The US ranks 129th on the Global safety index, while China ranks 89 — the PRC is safer, fairer, and more peaceful than the violent and anti-Asian America.
There is a 15% chance that there will be a US-China war by 2035, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
