Who is coercing the world, China or US? [Copy link] 中文

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday criticized British bank HSBC for its announced support of China's national security legislation for Hong Kong, saying it is a "show of fealty" which has earned the bank "little respect" in Beijing. He also said that the US stands ready to help Britain with alternatives and stands with its allies and partners against "the Chinese Communist Party's coercive bullying tactics."

This very US secretary of state seems to have become addicted to confronting China and he could not spend a day not finding fault with China.

But what is disgusting is that Pompeo always labels China what the US is most fit for. Which country habitually adopts coercive bullying tactics? How many countries are under sanctions imposed by the US and how many countries has the US threatened with sanctions?

The US' European allies have the right to say which country, China or the US, is coercing them with regard to Huawei's involvement in 5G development in their countries.

Beijing did not say it would retaliate if they didn't use Huawei equipment, while it is Washington that publicly threatened to stop intelligence sharing with them. The threats from the US ambassador to Germany have irritated German opinion several times. Has Pompeo forgotten all these?

Washington must be clear that its overall strategic suppression of China is driven by its geopolitical selfishness. Such selfish interests are by no means equal to the interests of the rest of the Western world. Many of the US demands go against the interests of US allies, and the US is using coercion, rather than moral appeal or cohesion of interests, to force these countries to cooperate with it.

China's political system is different from that of the Western world, and divergences on values exist between the two. But these divergences should not necessarily be turned into Western countries' sense of threat from China. China adopts relatively mild foreign policies and has shown restraint toward conflicts. It is always willing to strengthen cooperation to ease divergences.

Although some Western countries have doubts about China, they are not a major obstacle for cooperation between China and these countries.

On the contrary, a powerful China adds to their alternatives in international relations, and cooperation with China can help them win respect from Washington.

Under such circumstances, as the US forces its allies to pressure China, just as Australia has been ordered to do, many of them will feel dissatisfied, or even irritated. They do not want a deadlocked relationship with China or stand on the opposite side of China. It is Washington that adopts international coercion.

On Monday, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Rabb had a phone call with Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi. What Rabb said shows that London is keen to keep China-UK relations advancing and the UK does not want to "decouple" from China. China-UK relations are complicated, but the two are definitely not in a confrontation similar to the one between the UK and the former Soviet Union.

No matter how hard Pompeo pushes, he will never build an anti-China alliance. The impact of Washington's coercion will be limited. Humanity has long been tired of major power confrontation, and the US is only coercing itself by going against the trend. (Source: Global Times)

This is VERY INTERESTING!
Perhaps, the recent book entitled, 'THE JAKARTA METHOD' will be more interesting!

Pompeo is literally a whiffy cowpat--stinky, and useless even to the US.
Believe it or not, it's true.

   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US would not be "threatened by a kangaroo court" the
Hague-based ICC.    Perhaps the lad doesn't know his own history...  

An 1853 book describes an early “kangaroo court” as entertainment, a mock trial that allowed the people of a tiny Texas town to pretend to be powerful lawyers and judges.

  In other words, an American invention

   Had Australia the courage, they'd demand the removal of Kangaroo term and demand to be renamed
"Texas town Court" or Mustang Court...

When Western European nations expanded overseas, they killed and took by force. Races were eliminated from the surface of the Earth! Who cares? They renamed the place and occupied with their words as law and order. Today, they tried to tell the world their way of thinking. STRANGE!
A murderer telling his own version of quest and conquer with pride and despise the weak in his way.

US history has many wonderful aspects!
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo assumes his role as a new comer with pen in hand to write US history. Unfortunately, no history could be rewritten!
Pompeo must have a faulty faculty of thought similar to that of US President Donald John Trump. Just that they must have a CAT-Scan to see the portion that is left after rottening phase.
Incidentally, US does not have medical cure for this form mental retardation!
