global "competition between democracies and autocracies".

That appears to be a reality with the autocratic Russian Federation showing its willingness to militarily invade nearby sovereign nations, and the nominally democratic US/West nations trying to slow Russia's advancements. autocratic China wants to increase its areas of control, thus far using a control of markets and trade approach, with the US/West trying to slow China's advancements. Russia has resources it's using for leverage, as does China, which also has huge control over global supply chains giving it even more power.

The world once again is in a situation where empires are competing for greater control. Unlike WW1, this competition could result in military clashes taking place beyond just the European continent. Each of the three empires and empire-wannabes wants greater control of the fossil economy, while the planet and all forms of life on it are placed at greater peril as that economy grows, so those with the most wealth can have even more, hoping the rest of us might be somewhat content with being trickled down on, when we are lucky.

china, you are responsible for the death of hundreds

We don't care what you think.

Let’s criticize the CCP, not China. The Chinese people are stuck with the CCP too.

North Korea will test a nuclear-capable missile or a bomb as a show of force while Biden is in the region

The above would be another threat, in this case authoritarian Kim is aping fellow authoritarian Putin trying to assert his power and very existence while hoping to further spread fear. It's a fragile planet, made more so by authoritarian regimes led by mad-males with nukes.

Washington and Beijing are at odds over China's activity in the East and South China Sea, its claims on Taiwan

This reminds me of the Philippines throughout the 1930s. The US knew Japan would eventually invade. Roosevelt sent MacArthur to the Philippines to build and train an army. American troops were also sent to aid in the defense. Eventually Japan did attack, the US and Filipino troops failed and surrendered to the Japanese. Eventually the US retook the Philippines and won the war against Japan. That was resolve to defend a nation from aggressors. The US should not have been playing this game with China for so many years. The US should have established a military presence in Taiwan. The US should have recognized Taiwan as an independent and sovereign nation. Exhibiting weakness in a dangerous world is not advisable.

US companies should have never been allowed to move their products to be made in China for the cheap labor and shut down thousands of plants in America and put millions of Americans out of a job, so the companies could make higher profits!

Each of the three empires and empire-wannabes wants greater control of the fossil economy,

It doesn’t help the US at this point and time to not stop. Because without that fuel and without diesel especially, trucks are in the water and when that happens and deliveries across the US and Canada aren’t made, the nation and everyone suffers. From food to medical supplies to parts, it’s now more imperative than ever to start fracking and increase oil production.

while the planet and all forms of life on it are placed at greater peril as that economy grows,

So the solution to that is what, let people die or suffer? Even if you want to proceed with making green energy, it’s not clean to get there, it’s just like making sausage. You can do both, increase oil production and work on coming up with other viable and long lasting fuel sources and alternatives, but until then you don’t put up your hands as a leader of your country and make the excuse there’s nothing you can do, yes you can and if you don’t or won’t then you shall be ultimately replaced with someone that will.

so those with the most wealth can have even more,

That will never, ever changed, hasn’t in over 3,000 years

hoping the rest of us might be somewhat content with being trickled down on, when we are lucky.

We will always have the poor, always. It will never be eradicated. The best thing is to help the people that absolutely have no other possible way of living or even making an income because of some disability or sickness understandable. Anyone else, the best way is to either get a better education or get a blue collar job and build up some employable skills so that you never have to worry about being on the bottom. The main thing is, never be dependent on anyone especially another country like China.

Wang, however, said the United States was aiming "to form small cliques in the name of freedom and openness", all the while hoping "to contain China".

Well done Wang man, right on the button. It’s not just the Americans either. You guys are just gunna have to pick up your game (on so many levels, diplomacy for one ) if you want the legitimate respect of the world, and no you can’t demand it. Respect simply doesn’t work that way. Slandering anyone that doesn’t buy your ridiculous narratives or hurts your delicate feelings probably not the best way either. In the meantime, slam away.

These alliances and agreements to stand firm are just a gentle prod. Lines in the sand being drawn. Sort yourselves out and there won’t be any more need for these time and resource consuming counter measures. You know, the totalitarian stuff and the Orwellian handbook doublespeak. Go lockdown another city of 25 million, bar people from leaving their own homes , separate families, encampments, mass confusion, then lecture the world some more. Just another fine display of the inmates running the asylum .

Quit all the nonsense and then we can all go have a good old global banquet and party together, mate. Easy! Have a toppa week !

Mr Wang is correct, this is what the rogue state of the USA does best, creates division and hostility. They should look after their own affairs and keep out of Asia.

china, you are responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of people, the world over.

I think your right. Although they never illegally invaded other countries and killed civilians or raped the resources of colonial oppressed countries, their massive creation of third world infrastructure, education facilities, jobs, trade, hospitals etc, does increase their standard of living, a chance of a better future and escape from poverty and debt.

I think your assumption is that all the positive influence of China is killing hundreds of thousands of people is because if the third world develops in a positive way, with their wealth, the cause more climate change and global warming. I think you are right.

China you are responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands the world over

and how many "millions" of deaths are the USA and Japan responsible for all over Asia and the world.

Lets be realistic and do a little math before spewing hateful ambiguous comments towards China.

We don't care what you think

Fortunately you are not the voice of "we" and don't represent what all of us think!

Furthermore if you didn't care what China thinks -then you wouldn't have said anything

Trying to be diplomatic and getting along with your neighbors is a good thing.

Perhaps a little research into your Asian ancestors might be useful.

I think your right. Although they never illegally invaded other countries and killed civilians or raped the resources of colonial oppressed countries,

Tibet. Invaded by China. Raped of resources by China. Still occupied by China.

Ignoring the inconvenient truth does nothing to support your argument. It actually shoots it down in flames.

The Avenger-

Your confused.

Taiwan withdrew from the United Nations status as an independent nation because the ROC claims to be the legitimate and rightful government of all of China.

Having traveled both in Taiwan and China numerous times i prefer Taiwan .

The United States' "so-called 'Indo-Pacific Strategy' is, in essence, a strategy of creating division, inciting confrontation and undermining peace", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said

The only ones undermining peace in the region are China and it's poodle North Korea. China is complaining because a unified regional front poses an obstruction to it's expansionist agenda and aspirations to attain hegemony.

China can rest easy..

A circus of mice playing democracy does not represent any harm..

Gotta love China. They manage to tick off 3 countries simultaneously. Han supremacy at its very finest.

Some are and some aren't. The great numbers of CCP supporters on this JT forum are not "stuck" with the CCP at all. Just as there are Russians who are against Putin's invasion of Ukraine and there are those who support it mostly due to the State controlled media propaganda ensuring majority approval, most Chinese would support their government.

Stop doing business with the CCP.  China plays the game of money and economic domination. 

The rest is Bulshit !

USA should clean up its own act before pointing fingers. It's carried out violent genocide both at home and in the Middle East, and financially profited from the drugging of the Chinese with opium. Today, it still kills innocent people around the world, creating proxy wars, pumping money while enriching weapons manufacturers and its politicians who don't give a damn about their own needy citizens. USA is going down. There's nothing it can do to stop this slide except bomb other countries. China with one UN base versus USA with 800 military bases all over the world. You tell me who is a threat to the world?

They can and that's got the current admin, out of the office that is the first and foremost Achilles heel, cut that cancer out and you have time to plan, because if the US goes down, so does everyone else including China.

except bomb other countries.

Not under the last President and won't under a populace admin. if not, both parties might indeed decide to go to war for their own political reasons, depending on what they are.

China with one UN base versus USA with 800 military bases all over the world. You tell me who is a threat to the world?

Overall and without a doubt, China.

China and Russia will be paying for their ill wills soon.

I dont think anybody gives 2 monkeys what Japan thinks.

And as for North Korea, what a bunch of muppets.

Wasting millions of pounds just to fire a stupid missile into the sea.

Reminds me of the Saddam Hussein days, he was an idiot and the only weapons of mass destruction he had was propaganda.

Same with Russia and Korea and China.

Sorry, above post should read what China thinks lol

2 ( +4 / -2 )

One has to look at what happens within China itself, to see what a Future under Global Chinese Domination would look like. If anything will fail, China, in its current form, is destined for failure.

not only that, china's demographics mean that the country will certainly fail in its current state...and that writing has been on the wall for 30 years.

the ccp isnt doing itself any favors either....before running their mouf off at anyone and everyone, surely they understand how precarious their situation is being so reliant on energy and food imports to run their economy--a destroyer or two in the malacca strait and chinese industry/military grinds to a halt in weeks, the population starts starving within months.

china, like russia, is believing its own propaganda a little too much...

"I think your right. Although they never illegally invaded other countries and killed civilians or raped the resources of colonial oppressed countries..."

Um I believe the folk in Tibet, South Korea (backing the DPRK), Vietnam, India, and Eastern Turkistan will disagree with you. China invaded these nations from 1950 to 2019. Recently China has been invading swaths of Northern India and have been actively involved in military fighting being pushed back by the Indian military.

Just another false, tired trope trotted out by the CCP and their wumao.

Pukey ( love the name )  China with one UN base versus USA with 800 military bases all over the world. You tell me who is a threat to the world?

This is the only real thing you guys have. The old chip-on-the-shoulder routine getting a bit ho-hum matey. Gunna have to find some new material. Perhaps try addressing a few of the legitimate concerns the free world has with your country, one by one in a calm and rational way, we will all listen. Better that than playing the constant diversion and finger-pointing game screaming "America bad" like a broken record. I even get it, man. I used to think that the U.S was the root of all evil too in my idiot 20s, but trust me the world is much more layered and complex than any of us can imagine. Low-resolution thinking and constant name-calling ain't gonna cut it.

Can the dialog ever happen? Sure it can. Why for one would Wang be upset about any leaders meeting together anyway? Isn't one of China's benchmark claims a "No interference" policy? Each country gets to decide for itself right? There's as good a place to start as any.

This entire article is just a bucket of propaganda garnished with some total lies courtesy of neo-con ultra Jake Sullivan.

More neo lib nonsense that only helps the rich and famous. Biden and his cabal really are going back to the future.

One poster calling the cabal neo cons, the other neo-libs, we should drop these MSM driven phrases and call them global interventionists, or globalist's.

The Davis globalists are meeting now too. Expect more war folks and keep voting Dem or Rep if that’s what you want.
