Out of respect for CD, i won't repost the missing post.|
And yes, in using trade deficit as the US sledgehammer on China, Trump has rapidly within one month expanded his malfeasance to other matters as well, thereby posing an existential threat now to crush China. Is it because November on his neocon populist ticket is coming up, one no longer wonders.
Basically, he wants to finish off China in its present form, and in his Pence's (articulate that name roughly as "pen..") speech, all that bile was spewed out.
But as we all know, it will be his most colossal mistake to ignore that China's culture and history have alloyed in a transcendental crucible of national will to create a new steel of resolute strength to rebuff his simian tricks.
It is a mark of wisdom that China did not respond to his trade tariff ramps except by a grudging proportionality designed only to make him reconsider his foolhardiness.
If China had caved in then, the true objectives of the trumpistas would have been revealed piece by piece - they would have demanded for the next thing, and next, and next, on the mistaken psychological belief that China would have to relent if not to lose any concessions received in the first stage. If it already has not, DPRK should therefore take note now.
In sum, who in the world will thus not conclude let alone accept the US has been merely exercising blatant, outright and devious blackmail executed through a schoolyard bully pretentiously believing he is a globally stable genius come down from the Mount? And which nation will suffer such a toxic and baboonic buffoon?
Events of the past one year have shown that the US has finally shed its pretentious garb of righteousness to reveal a roller-coaster wrecking-ball monster hellbent on personal might above global right.
Don't those around and under Trump feel a sickening sense of outrage enough to do something about this character besought with moral turpitude? But one forgets, many have resigned including his Haley so soon after the collective guffaw by the UN at his eye-popping speech before the global congregation of leaders.
Moreover, in inserting a sinophobic poison pill clause into his bilateral trade agreements with Mexico and Canada, Trump is showing himself as the ultimate resurrection of his country's misanthropic Archie Bunker, however now with a bigger headpiece.
Other countries in his line of cross-sights must therefore take precautions with regards US bilateral deals. After all, poison pills can only and always be poisonous. And unlike OTC meds, they have no expiry dates.
This conclusion must have been inevitably shared by the thirty eight thousand (and growing) US companies which have already applied to their own government to be exempted from Trump's mad tariffs. Why did they do so if US tariffs are not resultantly bad for US industries?
Furthermore, taking comfort that the US economy has momentarily sprung up is just inexcusably conflating more funds repatriations with presumed effect of tariff impositions.
Furthermore, wrecking the global technology supply chain with more Cfius restrictions will only serve to degenerate prospects for a more integrated, less balkanized and pro-modernized world; minutes after the announcement, Nasdaq dropped four percent in tandem with the fall of most US tech stock prices.
Look, multi-lateralism bespeaks natural diversity bespeaks different strokes for different folks so that all can contribute to uplift consumer masses throughout the world to partake from cooperative innovations at the doorsteps of realization because only then can they combine savvy cost-effectiveness, mass-oriented innovativeness and whole-scale distributiveness as a combination of multi-lateral characteristics and effort.
No Made Only In USA product will sell well in any Asian, pro-European or Latin American country because peoples can't afford them or don't want them. In clouding the global trade system, are those peoples therefore to be now deprived of other cheaper but equally good products whose production bases are nefariously being roiled by the US trample of might by personal glorification of the US way as the only way?
The trumpistas want it all for themselves - the exclusivity of the old white-man anglo-saxon empire revived as the alpha man sahib's to bestride the new world since the old one they had already denuded and thus made dependent.
The pace of their doing so has quickened because they must have become painfully aware there is an intrinsic self-destructiveness in their so-called 'democratic' capitalist system which has only a singular characteristic to reward those who have at the net expense of those who don't. It seems being an American must have some exclusive privileges in today's world.
Therefore they want to find whipping boys and bogeymen to deflect attention of their own masses from the folly of their administration which at the same time wants to monopolize inventions and discoveries in some exclusive club of first-to-patent, a rule they wrote without any prior consultation with those who matter so that they be the only ones to determine how much to extract, failing which punish.
And today, as you read this, they have decided China is da man to tar, not knowing that China is in reality 大门 for all for the rest of this century.
