JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: CANADA’S TRUDEAU CONTINUES TO BLUNDER IN RELATIONS WITH CHINA – WHAT AMERICA’S CHARGES AGAINST CHINA ARE REALLY ALL ABOUT   Leave a comment

“Canada should immediately appoint high-level envoy to China, ex-ambassador says Canada needs representative who can ‘lower the temperature’ of diplomatic dispute, says Guy Saint-Jacques”

 

This is better than doing nothing, but I can’t believe it will be too helpful.

Trudeau and Freeland have blundered badly in a fundamental matter.

The Chinese are a people you don’t insult, and that is just what the arrest was, an insult.

It is stunning that Trudeau knows so little that he didn’t appreciate what the arrest would do.

I’m not sure how we can recover, although releasing Ms. Meng would really help.

Given Trudeau’s actions on Venezuela, though, which can only be interpreted as joining Washington’s war party enthusiastically – the godawful likes of Pompeo and Bolton – I would be surprised if the Chinese haven’t begun looking at us in a new light altogether.

Firing the ambassador was not a good idea either. Although he had broken diplomatic protocol, he was a liked and trusted man. Undoubtedly American considerations played a key role in the firing, either through general concern about the ambassador’s having offended the United States or through the actual receipt of an angry phone call saying so.

What we’ve already done in Venezuela far exceeds the minor sin of breaking diplomatic protocol. We’ve joined a campaign to recognize a man who appointed himself and never ran for office while ignoring the man legally elected twice.

On that last, readers may enjoy:

Response to a comment saying “next generation of Mass Global Communication technology, 5G, is what this is all about”:

To a degree you are right, but the conclusion to be drawn is not about China but about the United States.

It is trying to crush China’s 5G technology just as it would like to crush Russia’s Nordstream II pipeline.

The United States has taken to using muscle where it can’t compete economically.

It represents a very dangerous development.
