The idea was that China's regime, given a stake in the existing system, would then defend it...
By now, however, that bet looks like a mistake history will remember. For as the Communist Party grew stronger, it did not align itself with its Western supporters. On the contrary, it came to believe it could avenge centuries-old grievances and remake the world in its own image. The West's generous approach created the one thing it had hoped to avoid: an aggressive state redrawing its borders by force, attacking liberal values around the world, and undermining institutions at the heart of the international system...
What went wrong? "Past U.S. policy toward China fundamentally underestimated the hostility, ruthlessness, and will to power of the Chinese Communist Party," Scott Harold told me when he was at RAND's Center for Asia Pacific Policy.
Western leaders spent decades convincing themselves that the form of the Chinese government did not matter. Moreover, Western leaders failed to listen to what their Chinese counterparts had been saying...
Xi's subordinates have, since 2017, argued that the Moon and Mars should be considered a part of China, even talking about excluding other countries from going to those near heavenly bodies...
China has nonetheless announced its intentions: It will rule the world if it has the means to do so ...
Hostility toward others, reinforced by the racism of the regime's Han nationalism, means that China cannot co-exist with others in the international system ...
The Communist regime believes it has the right to do anything it wants—including spreading disease, stealing intellectual property, proliferating nuclear weapon tech, and breaking apart neighbors.
Other than surrendering sovereignty and submitting to Chinese rule, there is nothing the West can do to accommodate Communist China. China's regime believes it is in a do-or-die struggle with us.

The next time Xi does something to me I’ll let you know. Biden, OTOH, is a dictator.
what about Covid?
DO you mean the US government sponsored gain-of-function project?
Go fight that war yourself, mr. chang.
PS: I couldn’t care less what Xi does to the Uyghurs. If Muslims aren’t complaining, neither am I.
“ attacking liberal values around the world”
Sounds good to me.
“ what about Covid?”
I don’t know. Ask the Bethesda boys about that one.
They’d be nothing without us.
It’s always a bad idea to partner with one party dictatorships.
Kissinger is bad.
The proxy war in Ukraine failed miserably so neocons are now switching their focus to China. Fine so long as there is no war in Taiwan.
Ok. You give yourself away presenting Chicom psychops.
As either a moron or a shill.
Russia’s economy is ONE TENTH the size of China, and they’re whipping our asses in Ukraine.
...so now these clowns want to try to take on China??? How on earth do we get rid of this bunch.
China doesn’t want to be part of the NWO unless they are in control?
If the deep state wants me to hate China, I always remember to do the opposite of what the deep state says
Biden doing something to you is the same as Xi Jinping doing something to you, since Biden is an arm of the CCP.
It can be done without war.
We’re not even done with a war with Russia and now we want to take on China? Well %#@! me!
They really do want to depopulate the world, don’t they?
Since all the chips are made in China or 21 I guess we’ll fight them using abacuses, slide rules, and basic dumb weapons.
It’s not about Islam. They’re leaving the Hui alone, who are also Mahometans but are ethnically Han Chinese.
