Are the Chinese overplaying their hand?

Asked by stanleybmanly (5948 points ) 1 month ago

If so, is there a fundamental misunderstanding of America and what makes it “tick”?

No, they are not.
China and its satellite states are housing almost all the production facilities for the western world’s economy, colonies included.

They have no concept of how Americans think, and it’s not just limited to them. Some idiots are even worse in the way they misunderstand the US.

From a related article, Chuck Hagel speaks out about China aggression in disputed waters… We firmly oppose any nation’s use of intimidation, coercion, or the threat of force to assert those claims..

What nation on earth couldn’t say the same about US?

Look, sorry to say, but I feel little empathy if US corporations are getting the stiff from China. From your article This is by far the biggest attack on Google that’s ever taken place in China.… Am I really supposed to feel bad about that after Google spies on every US citizen for NSA?

What our media calls an attack, China calls protecting national security. I’m not about to call anyone the bad guy. But I assure you, our US gov is certainly not the good guy.

I long for the day when peoples of all nations grow beyond their trite little government elites, realize them as paper tigers, and come to union as human beings, sharing this planet in kindness, this life experience in compassion.

Contrary to popular belief, governments don’t solve any problems for anyone. They cause problems for everyone. Dark incestuous nests where greed and deception are born.

Does anyone realize how much we owe China?
