And yet, the government can't spare the money to even pay assistance they promised in 2020 to most businesses. Go figure.

Quad leaders oppose change in status quo by force;

Let's don't change the status quo already dis-proportionally weighted in our favor by force!

But using voter manipulation, crony capitalism and a status quo that disenfranchises a majority of the populace is good to go.

How many people in the Quad are wild to defend the "status quo"?

The joint statement seemed to take on a tougher note on Chinese assertiveness than before, with the Quad leaders saying they "strongly oppose any coercive, provocative or unilateral actions" that increase tensions in the East and South China seas.

I give the U.S. two months at best before they violate the 'provocative' part of this provocative agenda...

... expressed opposition to a change of status quo by force in any part of the world

... except in Iraq, Lybia, Afghanistan, Syria ...

And how dare Putin trying to reverse the 2014 US-backed coup of Ukraine.

Iraq probably the only one that is questionable. Libya and Syria were murdering their own citizens in order to maintain their power (Iraq did too I suppose). Afghanistan brought it on themselves when they allowed terrorsists to have safe harbor. Pakistan really should not have been an ally as that doomed the Afghanistan fiasco.

And how dare Putin trying to reverse the 2014 US-backed coup of Ukraine.

I think you got that the wrong way round buddy, Putin spat the dummy when his puppet was ousted. Maybe the raw beer crowding your judgment, but you should definitely not use social media for your history education ;)

I got assistance more than once SmithinJapan.

But you gotta actually own a business to get this. You can’t just complain and moan and the like.

Mmm... Don't know about other industries. But they did help my company last year, as well as others in the business of guided mountains and sightseeing tours, with allowances to keep our employees on the payroll.

So yes. They did pay at least some assistance.

Remember, just a short while ago, USA, and its allies threatened The Soloman Island with invasion/war if China set a military base there? The merit of a military base is another debate.

Quote "expressed opposition to a change of status quo by force in any part of the world" unquote.

So, invasion/war on The Soloman Island, is not a change of status quo??? You see the hypocrisy???? It seems only they can/entitled to it?

The USA/Allies keep doing/saying these things, over and over/again and again, so many many many times, that its become normal to them, they don't see the hypocrisy/absurdities/ridiculous pictures they are painting.

People are not fooled.

Still trotting out that BS line, lol.

Quad leaders oppose change in status quo by force;

How dare the world object to Putin's murderous war for expansion of the Russian empire. Who does the QUAD think it is? Russia and China should be allowed to invade anyone they like and kill as many people as they want in their efforts to enslave other sovereign nations. That is the new world order everyone wants. Isn't it? *(Sarcasm).

If these four countries think they are the boss of Asia then they should think again !

The indo-pacific opposes a change in the status-quo by a forceful Quad .

India isn't going to stick with the USA and Japan agenda.
