China: A Bulwark Against U.S. Empire Savagery and Financial Predation, by Richard Solomon

China will not allow itself to again be subordinated to the West. From Richard Solomon at lewrockwell.com:

Once again China finds itself a target of the international bankers. The American writer Mark Twain said, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”  In the 19th century, the British East India Company financed by City of London bankers and backed militarily by European colonial powers inflicted the horrific and devastating Opium Wars upon the Chinese people. Today, the U.S. Empire, along with its Wall Street shareholders and NATO allies, dreams of ruthlessly carving up China in similar fashion. Unfortunately for the pirates of global finance, the China of 2022 is a much different nation than that of 1839.

In the 1990’s the U.S. outsourced much of its manufacturing base to China. In exchange China agreed to buy U.S. debt that continues to balloon to near breaking point as a result of America’s wreckless military adventures and toxic financial instruments and swindles.  Wall Street bankers who specialized in debt commoditization only thought in terms of personal short term profits, while Chinese leaders played a long game that favored its citizens. Consequently, much of the American middle class sank into poverty like lead ducks in a pond, while the middle class of China grew like an elephant at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

It also creates debt from toxic corruption and endless war. China on the other hand, makes outstanding cost effective weapons systems and has become the world manufacturer of all things to all people.
