Is America fighting China without understanding history?


At the basement floor of the Chinese National museum in Beijing, there’s a curated collection of China’s imperial history from antiquity to the fall of the Qing Dynasty. The basement is where a multitude of visitors from around the country gather, entry is free for foreigners. At the end of the collection, is a British … Continue reading

China’s recent obsession with arresting Canadians is easier to understand and predict if it is seen as an attempt to alienate US allies from the US. Based on this, we can expect mistreatment of other US citizen allies in the future. They did something similar with an Australian back in January. By lashing out at … Continue reading

US’ Bible shortage (caused by Trump’s tariff) reminds the world of CCP’s Marxist doctrine


‘USA Today’ reported on July 8: “… Religious publishers say President Donald Trump’s most recent proposed tariffs on Chinese imports could result in a Bible shortage. That’s because millions of Bibles – some estimates put it at 150 million or more – are printed in China each year …” While the Chinese factories print Bibles … Continue reading

China has been had. It has been had by Western freedom. It has been had by its own culture’s psychopathology. It has been had by the concept of a promise—something the Chinese can’t understand, let alone keep. It has been had by Marxist propaganda. And, it is still being had by its obsession with power. … Continue reading

Huawei employees admit links to China’s military and intelligence, British report claims


Throughout the conflict between Washington and Huawei, a central theme has been the alleged connections between the company and state defense and intelligence agencies in China. The theory goes that the company has links and is obliged, under Chinese national security legislation, to collaborate with the state when asked to do so—and, where the company … Continue reading

Africa News explains why Africa will choose Huawei


Africanews’ June 6 article “Why Africa will choose Beijing in ongoing US-China trade war” provides valuable information to support my May 22 comment here that Africans have a decisive role in shaping Huawei’s global future. “… Much of the continent’s telecommunications backbone has been built and is still being built by Huawei. Should Huawei get … Continue reading

Why China can’t sell Its ‘One Country, Two Systems’ narrative to the people of Hong Kong


About two million residents took to the streets to protest subversion of their civil liberties. As a result, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam shelved a reviled extradition bill and apologized profusely for misreading the public’s mood and promised to do better. And she very well may be able to do better—if she manages to … Continue reading

The ultimate betrayal by Rodrigo Duterte to the Republic of the Philippines and the international community


It is a basic and elementary knowledge that in international law, “sovereignty means that a government possesses full control over affairs within a territorial or geographical area or limit.” While in our local jurisdiction, the fundamental law in Article I of the 1987 Philippine Constitution expressly provided that the national territory of the country is … Continue reading

China-Japan relations won’t be altered by Trump’s ridiculous ‘unfair military alliance’ remark


Tokyo (and probably the whole world) was shocked when Bloomberg News reported on June 25 that: “President Donald Trump has recently mused to confidants about withdrawing from a longstanding defense treaty with Japan, according to three people familiar with the matter, in his latest complaint about what he sees as unfair U.S. security pacts… “… … Continue reading

We are not headed to a Second Cold War. We are not at risk of heading to a Second Cold War. We are traveling at trans-warp speed toward the First Flash War. It will start and end quickly, laying the groundwork for WWIII and FWII to follow. These pieces of our times are important to … Continue reading

U.S. blacklists more Chinese tech companies over national security concerns


The Trump administration added five Chinese entities to a United States blacklist on Friday, further restricting China’s access to American technology and stoking already high tensions before a planned meeting between President Trump and President Xi Jinping of China in Japan next week. The Commerce Department announced that it would add four Chinese companies and … Continue reading

The ultimate betrayal of Rodrigo Duterte to the Filipino people and his utter love for China and Xi Jinping


I refer to “Duterte Stands by China, Doubts Own Fishermen in Sea Collision” by Andreo Calonzo published by Bloomberg on June 18th with regard to the indescribable betrayal of the hoodlum from Davao to the Filipino people and his unquestionable bias and love of China and its leader, specificallyXi Jin Ping. According to the said … Continue reading

Science journal ‘Nature’ says Chinese investments fuel growth in African science


“… US hegemony is the result of objective material conditions … the perpetuation of US primacy is a matter of policy …” (Layne 2006, p.12) It is one of the most academically known conceptions about ‘Hegemony’ stipulated by Christopher Layne (1949- ), a neo-realist and the Chair in Intelligence and National Security at the George … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, June 17, 2019


Trump’s so-called “trade war” with China was never any failed attempt at relations. It was a way to get American companies out of China before the inevitable crud hit the fan. With Hong Kong’s government ignoring it’s people, we can see Trump’s wisdom with China. One million people in a population of just over 7 … Continue reading

Canada is the second to suffer from China’s plastic waste import ban


“… ‘It was like an earthquake,’ Arnaud Brunet, director general of Brussels-based industry group The Bureau of International Recycling, said…” reported by AFP on Jan 21, 2018. It was a response to China’s official ban of plastic waste import with effect from the first day of 2018. “The EU exports half of its collected and … Continue reading

Chinese rhetoric spiked over recent weeks. They made threats. Trump made threats. They made more threats. Trump and Xi are BFF, just like Xi and Putin, but Xi and Putin are BFF-er. Now, we move toward quiet action. If China stops exporting “rare earth metals” to the US, the US would simply get them from … Continue reading

Chinese president’s dream: world domination by mid century


Geopolitical events increasingly indicate that an “alliance of evil” would emerge between Russia and China as President Xi Jinping seeks world domination, retired Army Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis said on Saturday. “I identify 16 indicators in an alliance of evil that we’ve seen time and again over the last few years and they tend to be increasing,” he … Continue reading

The Regan-Liu (Fox-CGTN) Debate did have winners


The essay title “A debate with no winner” was used to describe the “first time in history” TV live debate between Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan and China Global TV Network (CGTN)’s Liu Xin by The Star Online on June 3. Was there really no winner? The background to this debate, briefly speaking, is that: … Continue reading

The “Symphony Asian Mad Scientist Theorem” continues to play out. Trump engaged North Korea in talks that led to a calm without North Korea changing its DNA. Trump eventually reminded North Korea what everyone knew would be necessary to reach an agreement and North Korea stomped off. Now, Trump comes off a marathon of wider-scope … Continue reading

China’s electric vehicle industry hit hard by policy shift as Beijing turns toward hydrogen fuel


China’s electric vehicle (EV) industry has been booming for nearly a decade, with generous subsidies from the Chinese government and state-sponsored marketing efforts. However, the research and development (R&D) subsidies are now shifting to vehicles with hydrogen fuel cells, a new technology that, according to industry, is cleaner and more efficient than lithium battery-run cars. … Continue reading

US-China ‘trade’ war, if not ended soon, may spill over to ‘finance’


“On the international monetary front, the key problem was the acute dollar shortage in post-war Europe … In the effort to reconstruct a viable Western Europe, the United States conceded degrees of protection and discrimination in trade that were incompatible with its original blueprint …” Ian Clark, a Fellow of the British Academy and a … Continue reading

Huawei’s global future? Africans have a decisive role


After being cut off by service providers like Google and hardware suppliers including Intel, Qualcomm and Xilinx, Huawei’s future in the OECD countries is definitely dim. Populous Asian countries like India, Indonesia and the Philippines, with sizable markets, will probably hold on for a while to see what is going to happen next. As the … Continue reading

Of course China wanted to “re-negotiate”. Chinese culture, whether in government or business, seeks to sign a contract first, then negotiate the terms after. In America it’s called “reneging”. In China is called “that strange, silly, sign a contract game the Americans require that makes no sense”. Trump has known that since he had his … Continue reading

China’s top negotiator underperformed his job in the China-US trade talk


Liu He, China’s Vice Premier and the top negotiator for the current China-US trade talk, did not do his job good enough as he either said too much yes during the face-to-face talks, or significantly underestimated the ultimate terms, including the last-minute requests, demanded by the Trump administration. As I said last year, Trump could … Continue reading

Trump knew the Chinese all along, all too well. The “trade war” never risked creating a real war; the “trade war” was a ploy the whole time—part of an elaborate scheme to provoke the Chinese into striking too soon. He says talks are going well with China—he can’t not say that. China is indeed willing … Continue reading

Managing TikTok Internet app is the first global test to China’s cultural power


The Beijing-based TikTok “added approximately 13.2 million new users [in] the United States during Q1[2019]…” reported on April 10 by the Mobile App Store marketing intelligence agent Sensor Tower. If you do not know what TikTok is, this Influencer Marketing article tells you ‘All you need to know about TikTok in 2019”: “… TikTok is … Continue reading

Fibers are starting to snap and the solutions brought by governments always include adding more tension to the frayed rope. China heads more toward Maoism.

Ukraine’s Stepan Kubiv proposes a China-EU corridor via Ukraine


Stepan Kubiv, the First Deputy PM of Ukraine, while attending the Belt and Road Initiative forum in Beijing on April 25, “offered” to build a logistics corridor to link China and the EU through Ukraine. Just 4 days before this official ‘offer’, an actor (comedian) Volodymry Zelensky was elected as the next president of Ukraine. … Continue reading

US using Iran to punish China for supporting Venezuela


The Trump administration announced on April 22 that “buyers of Iranian oil must stop purchases by May 1 or face sanctions …” reported by CNBC on April 23. “The move, which took many market participants by surprise, ends six months of waivers which had allowed Iran’s eight biggest buyers of crude to continue to import … Continue reading

China faces more scrutiny from its own propaganda while Taiwan searches its own soul. Taiwanese elections are fast approaching. Demagoguery is in full swing.

RAND: “Russia can be contained, but China cannot.” Really?


A recent research conducted by RAND Army Research Division says that “Russia is not a peer or near-peer competitor but rather a well-armed rogue state that seeks to subvert an international order it can never hope to dominate. In contrast, China is a peer competitor that wants to shape an international order that it can … Continue reading

America’s government has finally cracked the code on China. They know how to get under China’s skin. They had an idea before, but the algorithm—the precise frequency of activation—needed fine-tuning. And, of course, China made it all too easy to know that the code had been cracked. The sale of 60 F-16V’s to Taiwan—inferior in … Continue reading

A map ‘error’ solidifies China’s resoluteness to support Russia to confront US over Venezuela


Surprise?! Ten weeks after the US-backed Juan Guaidó declared himself the ‘interim president’ of Venezuela on Jan 23, Nicolás Maduro’s government is still alive. What is diplomatically significant is that on March 26, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang dared to say at the daily press briefing that “… Latin American affairs are not a … Continue reading

China is being overwhelmed—Huawei to the west, British probes to the south, Kim to the north, but the prospect of trade to the east. The weakness is in the Chinese-cultural paradigm of negotiation. Chinese culture wants to sign a contract first, then negotiate the terms after. That’s a polite way of explaining “psychopathic negotiation”. China … Continue reading

Now, China has become the dark example of why not to be a Democrat in America. This is a new low. As much as being compared to China makes Democrats appear bad, it makes China appear all the worse because it paints China as the archetype of “how not to be”. American sentiment against China … Continue reading

U.S. warns Italy against joining China’s ‘One Belt One Road’


A spokesman for the White House’s group of national security advisors warned Rome that “Italy is a major global economy and great investment destination. No need for Italian government to lend legitimacy to China’s infrastructure vanity project…” Euronews reported on March 9. Reuters further reported on March 15 that Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte “… … Continue reading

Drama and theatrics! The US might be in a position to enforce the Magnitsky Act against China. Now, like Taiwan before, the US is taking the pot shots. It compares to Tony Stark’s Iron Man tossing rocks at a tank to provoke the tank before obliterating the tank. Talk of talks about trade with China … Continue reading

Beijing is staring at Bernie Sanders’ and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘socialist’ agenda


U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, “Workers are often paid far less than the value they create.” What a shock! The Business Insider immediately pointed out on March 10 that this is “essentially a restatement of Karl Marx’s Labour Theory of Value, which suggests that economies run into trouble when workers can’t afford to buy the … Continue reading

China doesn’t get the message, likely because China is too self-absorbed in its own culture. Detaining Canadians will provoke Canadians to support action against China to have the detained Canadians released—even supporting military action. When the US and China finally officiate their conflict, Canada may join the fray, all thanks to Beijing belligerence. The Western … Continue reading

Buffoons became naysayers this week, arguing that tit-for-tat military drill concessions would be the path to peace and that progress without finality in Hanoi surmounted to failure. Trump knows exactly what he is doing. Progress without “too much too fast”, passing up the invitation to stop in China while visiting Kim Jong-Un in Vietnam, replacing … Continue reading

Can China recover from its disastrous one-child policy?


Families are now being urged to have at least two children, but it may be too late to convince parents to embrace the change. For Xu Meiru, 38, the thought of having a second child is exhausting. Her days typically begin at 5am, don’t end until 11pm, and are filled with shuttling her nine-year-old son … Continue reading

Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, China, and Russia: potentially a new strategic and economic bloc


Saudi Arabia has been one of the closest US ally for years but some recent tiffs have seemingly impaired the bilateral relations – particularly after US excessive regulations on nuclear technology transfer, apparently to protect the interests of its peerless partner, Israel. Riyadh does not have nuclear bombs and it is also a signatory to … Continue reading

China in deeper trouble if Trump not granted Nobel Peace Prize


U.S. President Donald Trump wants the Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian committee would owe him this honor if the Trump administration could really complete a denuclearization deal with North Korea.

Google’s negligence with Taiwanese military secrets certainly put Taiwan on the map—and it may list Google among the utilities.

US-India hybrid war against China-Pakistan


When it comes to economic breadth and technology innovation, the Unites States is clearly the winner.

Prostitution, bias and treachery of a pseudo-“historian” about China’s early contact with Philippines


I refer to Mr. Ocampo’s article “Salazar’s 1590 report on the Manila Chinese”, PDI, which appeared on Feb 6th.
