Blog China VS USA thread

A thread to document and discuss the various events and manoeuvres
between China and the US.


China and the US are currently locked in a struggle for dominance.
As the saying goes "if the US sneezes the world catches a cold"
now add to that "if China catches coronavirus then the world requires PPE"

Whatever your views on communism / capitalism etc,
it's quite clear that whatever these two get up to it affects everyone on the planet.

Post relevant links and discuss here.

The economies of the PRC and USA need each other

- they are joined at the hip to each other these days.

That was not the case when the Big Power rivals were the USSR & USA

There will be no War between them

I don't think any SE Asia power would risk a War with the Chinese in this day and age

- with the possible exception of Vietnam

- and that would be primarily land based.

There will be no war, it will be economic tariffs etc .It is all about the share of the Pie .

There is a frenzy of Chinese propaganda in the states for this past year. Of course the western media will adopt without batting an eye

Sino-America situation is I think extremely serious.

There has been friction building between both nations during the past couple of years.
The virtual disintegration of the trade talks/deals, the belligerent language from both sides, the treatment of America prisoners in Chinese custody, are all adding to the tension between them.

The situation today in Houston is another indication of how poor relations are between them.
