Global Times (China) — "Russia is a painful lesson of a major power that tried to follow the West, but only woke up after gaining nothing."


China takes a lesson from Russia.
Russia is a painful lesson of a major power that tried to follow the West, but only woke up after gaining nothing.
Big countries will certainly face geopolitical competition. And the US will spontaneously try to weaken the contestants.

China has become the world' second largest economy. We cannot expect our future path to become smoother. On the contrary, the country is likely to become the focus of the Western power's exclusive reactions.
We have to be well prepared.

Well...yes and no. A number of the foundational elements of The West's success, like slavery, genocide and raw naked Imperialism, are no longer 'acceptable' these days.

Expect gunboat diplomacy from the US and its European vassal states. Fair trade and capitalism is what they teach at universities.

I remember one morning before work at 5 am listening to Radio 4 when a newscaster repeated what a Chinese official had said about the US. He said that the only way to talk to the US was down the barrel of a gun. I never heard that again on the radio, or anywhere else. The BBC never repeated it.

Every Communist must grasp the truth; "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

"Chinese official had said about the US"

LOL! When I used to travel there, the taxi drivers in that AT LEAST second rate nation would accept $2 for a $20 equivalent cab ride...

I'm not saying China is a great place, but America's capitalism only appears to work because it is underpinned by the ruthless exploitation of the third world. It started with the genocide of the American Indians by the British and the Europeans.

I like this phone, I can swipe the words in. I should get better at it in time as I learn where the letters are without needing to look accurately. If anyone finds any strange words in my posts, it because the phone has substituted them in.
