Westerners of developed nations have been complacent,arrogant and ignorant from one leader after another no matter which administrationscame and left. Post WW2 had seen the greatest of the USA as a true goodie inthe world to help stopped the invasions of very brutal invasions of theextremely cruel Japs with 2 atomic bombs and at the other end to blunt the NaziHitler Army.
Post-WW2, saw the formations of NATO and G7 which ganged upto take advantages of the underdeveloped nations which at that period includeda poor old_China during the last century ( Chinese folks were in civil wars andbutchered its 6000 years of glories on Earth, just too bad but must neverrepeat ). For decades of good times,these advanced economies are enjoying global advantages and practically dictateall other nations, rightly or wrongly. See how setup control compositions ofthe IMF and World Bank differ between nations?
These NATO and G7 have learned how to dictate as bossybullying dictators yet they are shamelessly calling many others as dictators.They have learned very well on how to fight, shit-stir, divide and war over thelast centuries. Though met with historically major defeats in wars, they appearto learn nothing about the ill-effects of conflicts and wars. Of course, fakingexcuses to war as seen in Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, etc are draining giganticresources stretching from human lives to the most basic needs of human. Theyhave become so mentally in disarray and politically weakened in many fronts.Can they economically expect to progress in such "run-down"situations? Milling of USD in trillionsequivalent of any currency is NOT the answer but they are taking that as theeasiest way out. Continuously blaming others like China being chosen as thepunching bag for them is a wicked plot against a peaceful and progressive riseof China. China is not working alone to drive the world economy upward but isproviding a means to an end.
Whereas, the USA and sadly Australia are trying hard to hypea China Threat Theory and if possible to stir conflicts in the Far East region- North East Asia - Pacific in contemptuous perils of nuke war ! Comments and remarks from UncleTrump at theState Union about China stealing the value of the USA is a kid joke whichrationally means that UncleTrump has lost all his value down to toilet shithole; isn't it ?
Australia remarked stupidly that China is the greatestthreat to Australia or to the world is displaying a desperate politicalinternal shit fight among its Aussie parliamentary members. Can you imagine anAussie top secret cabinet was up for sale at a roadside and somehow ABC pickedit up. What were inside the cabinet? They are spending too much time and effortto hype a CHINA THREAT theory (or it was once upon a time called "YellowImperils") to shield the extremely shameful dilemmas of the cabinet forsale fiascos.
Those shameless calling nations ought to look at themselvesto rejig their mental attitudes to fit into today's world. China has indeedawakened by world bullies but it is NOT hyping up conflicts. Instead, China'sinitiated B&R has a world of goodies for every nation to join the wagon inorder to reset today's world order with realistic rational foresight, wellfocussed perception and goodwill.
