    on
    February 12, 2021
    1.PREAMBLE
    1.1.To understand the present dynamics of the U.S.-China relationship, we have to rewind time by a few decades to find out how the U.S. unwittingly played into the hands of communist China to counter and “gain leverage” over the communist USSR in the cold war era.
    2.THE CREATION OF THE FRANKENSTEIN
    2.1. The U.S. could not prevent the expulsion of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the admission of Communist China into the U.N., with a PERMANENT SEAT in the UNSC, replacing the ROC in October 1971.
    2.2. After the secret visit of the then National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger to China in July and October 1971, the Republican President, mad man Richard Nixon spent eight days in China on an official visit.
    2.2.1. This was a shocking decision by the President of a nation that just throws out aliens having links with communists and other dictatorial outfits worldwide!
    2.3. At the Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai meeting, Nixon said: “We know you believe deeply in your principles, and we believe deeply in our principles. We do not ask you to compromise your principles(!), just as you would not ask us to compromise ours.”
    2.3.1. In his book, Kissinger adds: “If adoption of American principles of governance is made the central condition for progress in all other areas of the relationship, deadlock is inevitable!”
    2.4. THE INEXPLICABLE COMPROMISE WITH CHINA BEGAN HERE.
    2.5. In 1979, the Nehru-like Democrat, weak President Jimmy Carter granted China full diplomatic recognition, thus surrendering mainland China’s One China principle and severing normal ties with Taiwan.
    2.5.1. Chinese Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping, who led China through major economic reforms, visited the United States shortly thereafter.
    2.5.2. However, fortunately, in April, Congress approved the Taiwan Relations Act, allowing continued commercial and cultural relations between the United States and Taiwan. The act requires Washington to provide Taipei with defensive arms but does not officially violate the U.S.’s One China policy.
    2.6. In June 1984, President Reagan issued a formal policy determination that the sale of U.S. weapons to China would “strengthen the security of the United States and promote world peace,(!!!)” clearing the way for Peking to make government-to-government purchases under the Foreign Military Sales programme.
    2.6.1. In 1985, General Electric sold to China five sophisticated gas turbine engines as part of its naval modernization program!
    2.7. In the year 2000 October, the Democrat U.S. President Bill Clinton signs the U.S.-China Relations Act of 2000, granting Beijing permanent normal trade relations with the United States and paving the way for China to join the World Trade Organization in 2001.
    2.7.1. Between 1980 and 2004, the U.S.-China trade rises from $5 billion to $231 billion.
    2.7.2. In 2006, China surpassed Mexico as the United States’ second-biggest trade partner after Canada.
    2.8. Communist China took full advantage of the U.S. engagements to normalise relations, kept de-valuing its currency, and dumped cheap goods worth hundreds of billions of dollars on a nation in slumber, thus forcing the U.S. into unsustainable trade deficits.
    2.9. From a mere $83 bn trade deficit in 2000, the deficit ballooned to a peak of $418 bn in 2018.
    2.10. Republican President then stepped in, imposed stiff tariffs on Chinese imports, and brought down the deficit to $345 bn in 2019 and to $310 bn in 2020 ( a total of 26% down in two years).
    3.THE MONSTER USES THE MONEY TO BECOME A GLOBAL MILITARY POWER TOO
    3.1. After the collapse of the USSR in 1990, pseudo-Communist China craved, coveted, and lusted to create a bipolar world in a challenge to the Free World leader and the sole global superpower, the U.S.
    3.2. With this ILLEGITIMATE goal in mind, it embarked on export-driven growth, accumulated trillions of dollars of trade surplus, and surpassed the U.S. economy in 2019.
    3.2.1. Given the four times bigger population size, it now needs to grow only at nominal rates to maintain this lead.
    3.3. In the military domain too, China has today acquired near parity with the U.S.; it has the largest Navy in the world already.
    4.THUS THE FRANKENSTEIN HAS WOKEN UP AND IS READY AND WILLING TO IMPOSE ITS HEGEMONY OVER THE WORLD
    5.IT IS TO THIS MONSTER THAT JOE BIDEN SPOKE ON THIS WEDNESDAY EVENING
    5.1. Yes, in his first call, Biden stressed America’s commitment to protecting the interests of its allies and human rights.
    5.2. Hours before the talk, he even set up a CHINA TASK FORCE in the pentagon to address the Chinese threat to America and the world.
    5.3. A White House statement about Biden’s first conversation with Xi since taking office said Biden “affirmed his priorities of protecting the American people’s security, prosperity, health, and way of life, and preserving a free and open Indo-Pacific,” and did not mention tariffs or trade policy.
    5.4. “President Biden underscored his fundamental concerns about Beijing’s coercive and unfair economic practices, the crackdown in Hong Kong, human rights abuses in Xinjiang, and increasingly assertive actions in the region, including toward Taiwan,” the White House statement said.
    5.5. Biden tweeted late Wednesday that he had told Xi that the United States would work with China to suit American interests.
    5.6. A Chinese readout provided by CCTV said Xi told Biden that cooperation between the two countries is the”only correct choice” and that confrontation would be”definitely [a] disaster” China sought a resumption of various dialogue mechanisms to avoid misunderstanding and misjudgment, Xi said.
    5.7. “It is necessary to distinguish and manage differences between the two countries while identifying and collaborating on areas of cooperation,” Xi was quoted as saying. “Issues such as Taiwan-, Hong Kong- and Xinjiang-related issues are China’s internal affairs and are related to China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The United States should respect China’s core interests and act cautiously.”
    6.BRAVE TALKS ALONE DO NOT BRING IN THE OUTCOMES THAT THE FREE WORLD WANTS TO EXIST AS FREE NATIONS
    6.1. A rational strategy to deal with the Dragon’s threat would demand a TOTAL ECONOMIC BLOCKADE OF CHINA by the Free World.
    6.2. An economically weakened China shall not have the military muscle to threaten humans living in the democracies.
    6.3. The democracies have then to force China to free its people from slavery and democratise its governance.
    6.4. Strategies and Plans HAVE TO BE WORKED BACK to accomplish these goals.
    6.5. For this to happen, the Free World nations have to think and act together.
    6.6. It is here that the U.S. has FAILED to cobble up its allies as a mighty monolith in dealing with China.
    6.7. Knowing that they cannot stand up against China alone, they take the U.S. support in this as a done thing!
    6.8. Short-sighted to the core, On November 15, 2020, 15 Asia-Pacific nations signed the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), the WORLD’S LARGEST free-trade agreement (FTA). It includes CHINA, 10 ASEAN nations, and four regional trade partners: Australia, Japan, New Zealand, and South Korea. RCEP covers almost one-third of the world’s population and about one-third of its gross domestic product.
    6.9. Meanwhile, the European Union has already developed an ambitious agenda for collaboration with the Biden administration that is fully compatible with exercising its “strategic autonomy.”
    6.9.1. At the end of 2020, the European Commission did just that by concluding a comprehensive investment agreement with China.
    7. ARE BIDEN AND HIS SUCCESSORS CAPABLE OF PUTTING UP A UNITED U.S. LED ALLIANCE AGAINST CHINA?
    8.Meanwhile, Bharat has to keep bolstering her economic and military power to attain parity with China and emerge as an INDEPENDENT POLE of the world power order.
    8.1. And for this, only a NATIONALIST GOVERNMENT must rule Bharat for the next five decades and beyond.
