China-US decoupling gushes out — MK. Bhadrakumar

 Evidence of further decoupling of the Global North/West and Global South/East as a manifestation of a multipolar world order. This is also the manifestation of decolonization.

The alternative seems to be submitting the Global South/East to continued colonization through superior economic and military power. That is being tested now and so far it is not going according to plan. But it is yet early in this episode of the great game that has been underway since the rise of the West a millennium after the fall of the Roman Empire..
