Jonny Weeks/Pool via GettyLONDON—The main aim of President Biden’s European tour this week has simply been to show that the United States “is back!” at the heart of the Western diplomatic consensus.Unfortunately, the world is a little more complicated than that. By Saturday night in England, it was beginning to look like the White House had been a touch over-confident in just how far the charms of Biden would take him in persuading other G7 leaders to swallow all of his policy positions. Even th

Always great to see that BRI gets euroamerican imperialists quaking in their boots. BRI doesn’t get any mainstream coverage at all except for alleged debt traps. Yet another topic that media glosses over despite it bringing monumental change to international economics.

I’m interested to see what kind of a shitshow the G7s “Build Back Better” will be.

Dunno, seems to be doing that nostalgic idealization thing you see US presidents do: “make america great again”, “it’s morning again in america”, etc. All but the poorest Euro countries transitioned to finance capitalism a while ago, so they have to feign trying to “bring back” industry.

Why are the English speaking countries always at the front of the anti-China propaganda train?

Couldn’t be lingering bitterness that the Empire never fully colonized and subsequently crippled China like they did with India, right? Hmm…

My opinion? If Eurasia unites into one economic supercontinent, with fast railways delivering Chinese electronics and Russian/Iranian oil to Europe, then the US/UK become economic backwaters and their naval supremacy becomes less important. There is no way that the US remains a superpower in such a world.

Isn’t that why the US has never liked the idea of the European Union?

Reports from inside the room went further with claims of a sharp divide between the leaders over whether China should be called out explicitly. “The disagreements, aired during a session that at one point became so sensitive that all internet was shut off to the room, pitted European nations against the United States, Britain and Canada,” according to a CNN report on the meeting.

Gee, I wonder what country shutting down the internet that title was trying to imply, though…

A place for focusing on all things China - language, history, politics, etc.
