Heaven forbid! There are countries in this world that would rather not see the US running it. From the Strategic Culture Editorial Board at strategic-culture.org:
Biden asserted that China wanted to supplant the United States as the world’s leader, as if that in itself is a crime.
This week saw a frenetic foray by the Biden administration to provocatively wind up tensions with Russia and China. Lamentably, judging by European acquiescence, the Americans can claim some success in their nefarious aim. But such “success” is a dangerous slide toward conflict, a baleful dynamic that the sycophantic leaders of the European Union are facilitating.
President Joe Biden has said, rather disingenuously, that he is not seeking confrontation with Russia nor China. But it is difficult to conclude otherwise from the statements and actions of this president and his top officials since he occupied the White House two months ago.
His secretary of state Antony Blinken – America’s most senior diplomat – arrived in Europe this week in what was the first in-person meeting for European and NATO leaders with the Biden administration. The week kicked off with the United States, Canada, Britain and the European Union unveiling coordinated sanctions against China over alleged human rights abuses.
