Hot Issues

Would you trust China? China will eat our lunch.

After talking with Chinese President Xi Jinping , the U.S. President Joe Biden issued a stern warning about China.  Biden said China is America’s “most serious competitor” and the U.S. must up its game or China would (quote), “eat our lunch.”    Biden used strong words to picture China’s ambition.   Biden is unfriendly toward China, as bad as President Trump.   Biden’s comments came during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators on the need to upgrade U.S. infrastructure. What are China’s grand strategies?

“Wash your brain, buy your soul, eat your lunch” sounds weird.  However it is exactly a calculated step-by-step approach to weaken America’s strength.   Communist China is good at mastering brainwash.  Chinese people were brainwashed for decades.  Some Taiwanese people were brainwashed too. Even the leaders of foreign countries suffered different degrees of brainwashing.     For the past two decades, the China’s massive propaganda toward US and spent millions or billions to penetrate US’ academic world are two most alarming signs.   So what people will do after getting brainwash?  First sell his or her soul, then doesn’t mind to let China eat their lunch.

Taiwan knows China’s tactics well.   That is the reason that President Tsai Ing-wen recently said “The key to maintaining peace across the Taiwan Strait lies in the hands of China, while reiterating her administration’s willingness to engage in “meaningful dialogue” with Beijing on equal terms.”   The key words are “meaningful dialogue”.   The US and China engaged in negotiation for long time.     The results are China got stronger and became a world power.    Any Chinese action toward US was “Politics in Command”.    China’s immediate goal is to take over US as fast as possible.
