“The Real Target of the Huawei Sanctions and the Trade War

“The U.S.-China trade war isn’t actually about soybeans and steel. Washington fears its iron grip over the post-Soviet world is waning thanks to China’s new global initiatives”

 

Yes, of course.

China has begun to take center stage in the world’s economy with its magnificent Silk Road project.

Their efforts are going to make things better for hundreds of millions of people in the future.

Better transportation and communications always have that effect.

Indeed, the entire phenomenon of globalization over the last 500 years or so is itself based on such changes over time, and that explains China’s amazing rise over the last few decades, filling the store shelves of America and Europe with the products of people who were just peasants, never leaving their villages, only a few decades ago.

And we may ask just what benefits contemporary America brings to our world’s future with a Pentagon budget exceeding $700,000,000,000 and God knows how much for its high-tech Stasi at the NSA and CIA and FBI?

China builds and America bombs, and America does not like the comparison or the implicit challenge.

It wants to be regarded as “the indispensable nation,” but what’s indispensable about a giant military bully?
