If China supported Joe Biden in the election, it was a really bad investment. Joe Biden’s people keep threatening them with war.
Beijing dismissed Washington’s suggestion that China is a “geopolitical test” to the US but said it is inevitable that the two nations, with their differing histories, cultures, and political systems will disagree on some issues.
“The key is to respect each other, treat each other as equals, and properly manage and handle them in a constructive manner. Dialogue is better than confrontation,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Thursday.
The spokesman contended that “China has always been a builder of world peace” and a positive contributor to global development, calling on other nations to see Beijing’s accession as an opportunity and not a challenge.
“It is hoped that the US will view China and China-US relations in an objective and rational manner, conform to the trend of the times and abandon the outdated zero-sum thinking,” Wang added as he reiterated Beijing’s position on Xinjiang and Hong Kong-related issues, and demanded Washington refrain from interfering in their internal affairs.
On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed China represents America’s “biggest geopolitical test of the 21st century,” adding that the emerging superpower nation was the only country powerful enough to jeopardize the current international order.
“Our relationship with China will be competitive when it should be, collaborative when it can be, and adversarial when it must be. And we will engage China from a position of strength,” Blinken said in a speech addressing the State Department.
This is at the same time that they’re drawing a red line on China combatting terrorism in their own country.
China has taken over huge parts of the world without violence. So it is definitely difficult to frame them as an aggressor. The United States dumped huge amounts of resources into fighting wars against Moslems that don’t really even make any sense. Even from the standpoint of “wars for Israel,” these wars do not make sense. Israel is fine, and was never really being threatened, and could have had much greater influence in the region without the wars.
It’s really bizarre that we’ve reached a point where people are ready to have a world war over supposed mistreatment of Moslems in a place they don’t even know the name of. Especially because we’ve been told that we were at war with Moslems.
