This is just another Chinese debacle. 4 years now I've watched news story after news story regarding the Asian Chinese conflict. China plays good cop then bad cop in every other story. They press tensions with blatant tactical moves on one day, of which they find a decent excuse which does not quell everyone's disappointment with them, however it gives them a transitional opt out. Where as on the other hand it seems that they then go on parade to the world speaking of better relations ties and the sort. China is no doubt playing a game. Their claims of land are against the peace of its region. I could remind China that if it were not for the States then China would never have won out against the Japanese. Well since then Japan has been humbled and re-established as a closely tied friend to many countries around the world. In many ways no different then Germany or Italy. I however don't need to point this out because China knows full well this has been the case for nearly 68 years. The truth I gather is that China has only ever uses WW2 references to justify their own expanses. However, the world is now watching and expanding militarily is no long a viable answer. What I believe the Chinese are up to is a good old "Rope'a'dope." China does not intend on a full out engagement because one is not profitable. However, now that their government has equity and a surplus income without deficit/debt, and while other countries namely Japan, USA and the Philippines do. They will simply harry their neighbors into an EXPENSIVE arms show along its frontiers. As governments with large deficits get poorer and poorer and public spending gets thinner an thinner. China will slowly buy up and dominate financial opportunities eventually supplanting the USA as the number one spot. What I would worry about most is; will we step aside and let China take the number one spot or will we see a war. For the Capitalists I'm sorry i don't think prosperity will any longer be possible for most of us.

Posted in: In many parts of Tokyo and other cities, although bars are open until late, many people who got into the habit of drinking on streets and in parks to avoid closed, crowded environments due to the pandemic, are continuing to do so, making noise and leaving trash. What do you think about this?
