Gotta give credit where it’s due and as surprised as I am, Biden deserves credit for this one. I assume this probably wouldn’t have happened if China hadn’t publically tongue lashed Blinken in Alaska a few days ago... I’ve read a few stories on this and the media is definitely framing this as if Biden picked this fight, which goes back to another thread I recently posted that the focus on anti-Asian hate is more about deflecting from criticism of China than it is a thing else.
Still this doesn’t go far enough in my option. China is literally running a genocide program and they should be made a pariah and sanctioned in every way possible to lock them out of western economies. China is on path to overtake the US and I know a lot of people take great joy at that prospect. Those people are going rue that day when they realize what an authoritarian ethnic-state being the hegemonic world power means in reality.
I think all western nations should cut China off and order all corporations out of the country. Pull the fucking rug out from under the CCP. I have a hard time imagining China could maintain their growing position without the West being a willing victim. The world, and especially every western nation, has an interest in preventing China from becoming the dominant power in the world.
