That makes sense, since, as everyone knows, Biden is in China’s pocket. What could go wrong?
The Yuan replace the Dollar? Won’t happen. Not in the foreseeable future.
I heard a clip the other day of the guy in charge of the Fed saying there could be more than one world currency…
Maybe. But not now.
This was a good conversation about the threat of China.
That figures. Follow the money…
Yes, that’s what we get for letting China get the upper hand.
I’d be willing to bet Biden doesn’t rush to defend Taiwan like he has Ukraine. He has to appease the Ukranians so they don’t expose his corruption there, and he has to appease the CCP for the same reason, and let them do what they want in Taiwan.
Oh, but no, his vulnerability to blackmail due to his egregious corruption is no problem at all! No threat to national security, or foreign policy, nothing!!
“It is not just our jobs we have given China. The country’s grip on rare earth metals grows by the day, cornering the market in materials needed for advanced technologies. They expand quietly but steadily through the Asia Pacific, militarising internationally contested waters and allegedly lining dodgy politicians’ pockets by buying their favour. Some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes remain vulnerable to the increasingly assertive People’s Liberation Army Navy.”
“Locking poor countries into unrepayable debt, the Chinese government takes over strategically significant ports, further projecting the communist dictatorship’s power. This is only another tentacle of influence, with Chinese industrial espionage and intellectual property theft already having fed off the naivety of the West for decades. Millions of pounds of Chinese money pours into our universities, ensuring compliance and the proliferation of Confucius Institutes. Beijing’s spies operate in the Houses of Parliament.”
“But nary a peep from our governing class about the dangers posed by the red dragon which has been made strong by our compliant greed. Instead, all eyes are kept firmly on Russia on a war of what should have been little geostrategic importance to us.”
“Now China has its eyes fixed on Ukraine. Having made it into a totemic war between Good and Evil, or in the new styling, Democracy v Autocracy, it is now a conflict that the United States, already chastened by its abject humiliation in Afghanistan, cannot be seen to lose. To do so would mean the final collapse of its rapidly crumbling hegemony.”
“Squaring up to Russia in Ukraine has opened a can of worms. The biggest critter lurking within that can is China, whose influence over our economy and society has gone unchecked for decades. We’ve shown plenty of stomach for a confrontation with Moscow – what are the odds we’ll show the same if Beijing’s landing craft head towards Taipei?”
“Let’s hope we don’t have to find out. Confronting them after giving them our manufacturing base would show us to be dangerously vulnerable. Even our camouflage uniforms are, like almost everything else, made in China.”
China is a danger, but at present is in economic difficulty.
(It’s a very poorly written article!)
Yes, China is getting ready to attack Taiwan, while we are focused on Ukraine. And because of all the power we have foolishly handed over to them, such as our manufacturing base, we are in a position of weakness against them. On top of that, Biden is compromised by his corrupt deals with them.
The mess we’re in now is nothing compared to what will happen if we get into a war with China.
What is this all about?
