Letter: Too many concerns about Fufeng plans; city shouldn’t give approval

Is it just a coincidence this proposed plant is just 13 miles from the Grand Forks Air Base and is positioned to have a direct line of sight to that base?

Letter to the editor FSA

Stalin once said: “When we hang the capitalists they will sell us the rope we use.”

Today’s Communist Chinese version: “When we dominate and control the U.S., they will provide all the means to do so.” Perhaps this is what we are seeing with the Fufeng Group project currently eyed so eagerly by the local stakeholders and officials who assure us due diligence is a prerequisite for the project’s approval. Unfortunately, potential profits and political pressure can bias and/or minimize due diligence concerns.

A recent article on the website Zero Hedge recently highlighted the various concerns the Fufeng Group processing plant under discussion with Grand Forks leaders pose to local and national security.

Is it just a coincidence this proposed plant is just 13 miles from the Grand Forks Air Base and is positioned to have a direct line of sight to that base? Is it just a coincidence the Air Base is slated for upgrades regarding intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) operations with both undertakings becoming operational at roughly the same time?

If these questions can be answered “no,” then the Fufeng Group would need no tax incentives to build their Communist-backed plant in Grand Forks. Their goal to infiltrate and harm the US would be another Chinese Communist Party success, with or without tax breaks.

North Dakota ranks 11th in U.S. corn production. Would it not make more sense to build such a plant in states that grow far more corn than North Dakota but may not have an air base at such close proximity? Could the Fufeng Group’s proposed plant be just a smoke-screen for other nefarious purposes aimed to harm the U.S.?

Just asking for a friend.
