James Petras — Washington’s ‘Pivot to Asia’: A Debacle Unfolding
The real story unfolding is the Philippines. The US overreached.
Petras mentions but doesn't emphasize that something similar is happening in Thailand.
Asian countries realize that the economic future lies with China rather than the US, which is chiefly an Atlantic power allied with Europe, and doesn't have non-white peoples interests at heart. They are getting tired of being used as pawns in the global game, and now face the possibility of getting shut out of China while being treated as US colonies.
