May 3 - US top diplomat: China acting more ‘repressively, aggressively’

An increasingly powerful China is challenging the world order, acting “more repressively” at home and “more aggressively” overseas as it tests its growing influence, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said, in an interview on US television.

“What we’ve witnessed over the last several years is China acting more repressively at home and more aggressively abroad. That is a fact,” Blinken said in an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday.

The top diplomat in the United States said China was behaving “increasingly in adversarial ways” but asked whether Washington was heading towards a military confrontation with Beijing, Blinken replied: “It’s profoundly against the interests of both China and the United States to, to get to that point, or even to head in that direction.”

Biden has identified competition with China as his administration’s greatest foreign policy challenge. In his first speech to Congress last Wednesday, he pledged to maintain a strong US military presence in the Indo-Pacific and to boost technological development in the US.

Biden said he told Chinese President Xi Jinping that in the competition to be the dominant power of the 21st century, “we welcome the competition – and that we are not looking for conflict”.

Blinken arrived in London on Sunday for a G7 foreign ministers meeting where China is one of the issues on the agenda.

During the 60 Minutes interview, Blinken said China is “the one country in the world that has the military, economic, diplomatic capacity to undermine or challenge the rules-based order that we care so much about and are determined to defend.

“Our purpose is not to contain China, to hold it back, to keep it down; it is to uphold this rules-based order that China is posing a challenge to.”

Tensions between Washington and Beijing have risen over the past few years over issues from trade to human rights, including what Washington has described as genocide against the mostly Muslim Uighurs in the far western region of Xinjiang, the crackdown on pro-democracy politicians and activists in Hong Kong and the self-ruled island of Taiwan.

Last month, Blinken said the US was concerned about China’s aggressive actions against Taiwan and warned it would be a “serious mistake” for anyone to try to change the status quo in the western Pacific by force.

The US has a longstanding commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to ensure the island has the ability to defend itself and to sustain peace and security in the western Pacific, Blinken said.

Taiwan has complained over the past few months of repeated missions by China’s air force near the island, which China claims as its own.

Facts. Addressing wealth inequality here would help the US tackle China on the global stage significantly.

However, I read an interesting perspective from the Pittsburgh quarterly that basically says China is screwed, just the world hasn’t figured it out yet.


Between a “unruly” population, population issues, the floundering of the Chinese economic promise to its citizens (we give you better lives in exchange we do what we want), and historic enmity - apparently Xi acting more boldly is because he knows now, or relatively soon, will be Chinas only shot to change the world order to better them before those four aforementioned issues bring them/slow them down.

ding ding. the ccp ain't dumb they know the export system that led to their rise is becoming obsolete because those same population issues are hitting every developed nation save for the us, aussies, and kiwis. in other words they'll run out of customers/consumers abroad and at home to keep up their social contract with it's people of sustained growth and their #1 customer america who will still have a growing domestic market is growing increasingly angry with them. emerging markets in africa and southeast asia aren't wealthy enough to replace the customers they're about to lose so it's plan b.

set up as many bilateral deals in their favor as they can while they have the leverage as they crack down and close back down domestically to hold on to power. it's why they moved on hong kong early before the agreed upon year in the treaty. it's why they're weeding out any other large ethnic groups (uyghurs) that aren't han that could disrupt social cohesion domestically. and it's being aggressive to the outer world to create the perception—to it's own people—that it's "china vs the world." that the world is holding china back out of spite instead of pushing back against it's cornering and manipulation of markets and bribing of world leaders (david cameron anyone?) who were salivating at getting a piece of the chinese market which was never really available to them in the first place.

so that's the ccp's plan, there is actual worries internally in the politburo that xi moved too quickly and revealed their hand too soon and that it's now backfiring before they could shore up some much needed support around the globe. we'll see how that plays out for xi's future in the leadership when the plateau becomes ever apparent.

"China isn't doing what America wants anymore, after America and many others countries helped China become an undisputed powerhouse by shipping the majority of jobs there for that sweet, sweet cheap Chinese labor."
