COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MICHAEL SNYDER IN CHECKPOINT ASIA

 

‘US-China Relations Have Just Been Destroyed, and Nothing Will Ever Be the Same Again

‘The U.S. Senate just unanimously passed the “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019” and the Chinese are absolutely seething

‘”US and China are now enemies, and ultimately that is going to result in a tremendous amount of pain for the entire planet”’

A troubling, but unfortunately accurate, summary of the situation.

It may prove nothing less than a world historical watershed, coming, as this stupid Act does, piled on top of all the other American complaints and demands and threats towards China.

An extremely dangerous turning point. Even that hideous old creature, Henry Kissinger, was just in the news warning about the possible catastrophic effects of a serious divide between America and China.

The article says, “The Chinese take matters of internal security very seriously.” Of course they do, but please keep in mind that that is no less true of the United States.

With 17 massive national security agencies, I think it fair to characterize the United States as pretty much “apeshit” on the topic.

And just look at all the endlessly repeated brain-fried stuff about Russian election interference. It just never stops, almost like babbling from poor sick inmates of an asylum.

Despite their own paranoid level of concern about security, American leaders seem unable to understand, or have any sympathy with, the concerns of others.

A complete lack of empathy. I do believe we call that psychopathy.

A reminder to those, like members of America’s Senate,who rant against what has been China’s very restrained suppression of violent rioters.

Apart from all the violence in which America is today engaged abroad, while China is at war with no one, we should remember, a number of times in the past, the United States took far more deadly action against violent demonstrations by its own citizens than what we see in Hong Kong.

It shot people in the streets for such behavior. Just one instance, of many during the 1960s, was Detroit, 1967, when forty or so people were killed by the National Guard. American police and National Guard shot people, too, in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

  1. Someone on another listserve compared the Hong Kong disturbances to the US Black freedom struggle. How distorted perceptions can be in the US!

    I somehow remember that the Black freedom struggle did not involve dowsing opponents with gasoline, throwing molotov cocktails, overturning cars, or smashing windows.

    Those are the kind of tactics used against freedom and labor movements by right wingers. They are tactics meant to intimidate, not to convince others to join a just cause. In fact, those who go along with them become discredited by history. IMHO they will fail, and Hong Kong will eventually be returned to China, despite large losses for everyone.
